Durarara!! Doujin Day

Posted in bad for your health, doujin, Durarara, I like hot dudes, yaoi with tags , , , , , on July 17, 2010 by ampzr

Yay! Today I got in the thirteen Durarara doujins I ordered from Mandarake. I think Mandarake is the best place to order doujins. You can search by series and the prices are the original Japanese prices. Lots of times when you buy doujins at conventions they’re marked up and you end up paying around $15 for one. At Mandarake the majority of doujins I’ve looked at are under $10. I mean I bought thirteen of them and with shipping it coast me about $111.

As you can tell I’m totally all about Shizuo X Izaya. I do like it if Izaya is an aggressive uke though. He just has to be the uke.

Some notes if you want to purchase doujins from Mandarake.

Here’s a screen-shot from their website. Most doujins have sample pages. Make sure to look at the sample pages to see if you like the art style. Cover art whether good or bad doesn’t always represent actual internal doujin art. Also some of the doujins are novels with a few pictures thrown in. If you can’t read Japanese then it’s be a bummer to buy one of those. The Main Character section will always list pairings. For anyone not familiar with pairing listings it’s always Seme X Uke. So if it says Shizuo X Izaya than Shizuo is on top and if it says Izaya X Shizuou then Izaya is on top. Another nice thing Mandarake does is usually list if the doujin is 18+ or not. If you look in the Note section of the page it’ll say. Keep in mind while this is true almost all of the time I’ve seen a few that have 18+ on the cover art but not in the notes.

Other notes about Mandarake. They’re shipping prices are great. They’ll list items as used on your packages (even if they’re new) or send items as gifts so you can pay less in shipping. If you’re going to pay using paypal then you can only ship EMS. I usually use their payment page where you enter in either a debt or credit card and then you can choose SAL. I used SAL for my doujin order. Also another thing I’ve mentioned before Mandarake is a chain of stores in Japan and items may come from different stores. Pay attention to this when purchasing because you’ll have to pay shipping for each store you have to ship from. They make it really obvious in your cart though if you have items from different stores because you’ll basically have more than one cart.

Well I’m off to read the doujins now! I also bought two more Durarara doujins today along with some Haruhi figures!

This Looks Kind Of Good…*Collective Groan*

Posted in bad for your health, horror, movies, preview, supernatural with tags , , , on July 17, 2010 by ampzr

There were quite a few entries I wanted to post yesterday. Unfortunately I’m passing a kidney stone. I’m always saying I never want to have kids, but everyone says a kidney stone is worse than childbirth. Maybe I should give birth…nah still rather have the kidney stones even though they hurt like hell.

Anyway one thing I wanted to write about, but didn’t get the chance was the during the midnight showing of Inception I went to there was a trailer for a movie everyone seemed to be enjoying. It seemed suspenseful and spooky. That is until the entire theater groaned collectively when this…

showed up on screen. Everyone then proceeded to bust up laughing. I can only think though that the sigh happened because the trailer really did look good and we were all disappointed that the movie was made by M. Night Shyamalan. We wanted it to be good. I guess that brings me to a few questions. Has M. Night ruined his name so much that even if he makes something good no one will go see it? How many people out there are still rooting for him? Hoping for that next great movie? I know I’ve seen them all. I’ll probably continue to see them all. Even though me and my friend were so close to walking out of The Happening.

Well here’s the trailer for Shyamalan’s newest movie, Devil. Let me know what you think.

Mitsudomoe Ep. 1 & 2: Groin Abuse, Snot Ropes, and lots of Urine

Posted in anime, bad for your health, horror, loli, review with tags , , , , , on July 13, 2010 by ampzr

I really liked Kodomo no Jikan. I really liked Chu-Bra. I did not like Mitsudomoe. The show is just a series of random happenings that mostly make you go wtf. Basically we’re following three severely messed up sixth graders and the unfortunate people forced to be around them. However all the gags the show tries to pull off never really make you feel anything except at times disgust.

One of our first big gags is when the girls decide to injure their teacher’s groin so the school nurse will have to treat it and the two will fall in love. This was one of the more interesting moments but still just kind of meh. There were many uneventful stories like the classroom hamster being named Nipple among other non-eventful stories. The other stories that stuck out only stuck out due to disgust they brought on. One of the sisters has a cold and sneezes snot everywhere. The worst part is it’s like industrial strength snot rope. This may sound amusing but please believe me it’s not. Also another gross moment is when the school nurse is collecting urine samples. She spills urine everywhere. Everyone gets urine on them. It doesn’t stop there either. Due to some mystical force the urine bottles appear from nowhere. (Really how did a urine bottle get into her coat pocket?) So we have to deal with urine in coffee and urine used as eye drops.

Lets also face the fact that the girls in this show or supposed to be sixth graders but every character looks like a child. The adults look like they’re in middle-school and the middle-school kids look like preschool-elementary school kids! Everyone usually has one round chipmunk tooth and in general the same body type. Like some weird chibi form…

If you love yourself…hell even if you only tolerate yourself stay away from this show! After the first episode I wanted to stop but I decided to go on for the sake of reviewing. I was even hoping it would get better. So I thought I need to give the second episode a try. Don’t be like me and sacrifice precious moments of your life on this show. Stay far far away!

I also wanted to smash my face into a bloody puddle after watching this anime

If you so care to know my personal complaint with this show…

Another character this summer season whose glasses fall off and they’re completely blind!!! NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Yeah I know it’s a common anime device but two shows this season where I have to deal with this? Anime aren’t you better than this by now? If some how it serves a purpose ok whatever. When it happens for no reason…*sigh*
