Occult Academy Ep. 2: Shadow Penis & Bath-towel Battles

Posted in anime, review, supernatural, wacky with tags , , , , , , on July 13, 2010 by ampzr

After watching the second episode of Occult Academy I’m concluding that it’s a comedy with the occasional dark moment and a super natural theme. I did enjoy the second episode more than the first but it’s still not close to being one of my favorite shows.

The plot of Occult Academy is explained a little better in this episode. We find out that our mysterious floating boy from the sky is a guy named Fumiaki and he’s from the year 2012. The earth has almost completely been taken over by aliens and he’s been sent back to stop that from happening. Of course it seems the initial trigger for this event happens at Occult Academy.

Maya on the other hand discovers that her father was murdered by the people presumably responsible for said event. She gets attacked by a ghost while taking a shower. (I do enjoy Maya much more in this episode than the first.) And that is what leads to all the events that end up with her and Fumiaki deciding to team up.

So this show isn’t horrible but I don’t find it very gripping. If you are looking for a distraction and just want to be entertained for a while then go ahead and watch Occult Academy. There’s worse ways to spend your time after all. If you have to go out of your way to watch it though I say don’t.

Alright lets start this out with the obvious fact that I didn’t make any of these. There are tons of fan made videos for tons of animes out there. Usually they start out on Nico Nico Douga and end up migrating to Youtube. Today I’ll show you some of the Durarara ones I really like. We’ll have some serious and some silly. Here we go!

It’s Pocky time ladies and gentlemen!

Izaya loves Shizuo?

Durarara Gourmet Race –
if you don’t love this video I’ll have to go cry in a corner and wonder what the world is coming to

Let Izaya serenade you

Well there are just a few. You can literally spend hours searching youtube for more if you so desire. After just now spending said hours to compile these videos I leave you now to go watch some anime for the night. Also I leave you with one more video…

Izaya Caramelldansen (come on with how popular these videos are did you really expect to only get one?)

All the Different Flavors of Alois

Posted in anime, personal, wacky with tags , , , on July 11, 2010 by ampzr

So here I am pondering who to cosplay for this years Youmacon. When I think maybe Alois. So far I’ve been thinking of doing Izaya. Either way one of my poor friends has to then cosplay Shizuo or Claude. Deciding to do a google search I type in Alois. Apparently there have been many famous Alois throughout history. Here’s a list of some…

Alois Hitler – Yep Adolf Hitler’s dad was a Alois

Alois Hitler Jr. – If you couldn’t guess Hitler’s half brother

Alois Estermann – Apparently a murdered Swiss Guard but we’ll let this soap opera snippet explain it better…”Tornay turned to Alois Estermann for affection, and enjoyed a short homosexual affair. Their relationship deteriorated into acrimony as Tornay realised that Estermann had betrayed him with another guard. Estermann’s close links to the Opus Dei movement, and his final refusal to award the Benemeriti medal for 3-years service led to further frustration and Tornay’s decision to kill Estermann”

Aloysius “Alois” Alzheimer – “was a German psychiatrist and neuropathologist and a colleague of Emil Kraepelin. Alzheimer is credited with identifying the first published case of “presenile dementia”, which Kraepelin would later identify as Alzheimer’s disease.”

Alois Brunner – “is an Austrian Nazi war criminal. Brunner was Adolf Eichmann’s assistant, and Eichmann referred to Brunner as his “best man.” As commander of the Drancy internment camp outside Paris from June 1943 to August 1944, Alois Brunner is held responsible for sending some 140,000 European Jews to the gas chambers. Nearly 24,000 of them were deported from the Drancy camp. He was condemned in absentia in France in 1954 to a life sentence for crimes against humanity. In 1961 and in 1980, Brunner lost an eye and the fingers of his left hand, respectively, as a result of letter bombs sent to him by Mossad. In 2003, The Guardian described him as “the world’s highest-ranking Nazi fugitive believed still alive.” Brunner was last reported to be living in Syria, where the government has so far rebuffed international efforts to locate or apprehend him”

Alois Hudal (also known as Luigi Hudal) – “was a Rome-based bishop of Austrian descent. He was for thirty years head of the small Austrian-German congregation of Santa Maria dell’Anima in Rome and until 1937, an influential representative of the Austrian Church. In his 1937 book The Foundations of National Socialism Hudal praised Adolf Hitler and some of his policies and indirectly attacked the policies of the Vatican. After World War II, an unrepentant Hudal became infamous for the “ratline” he helped to establish, allowing prominent Nazi German and other European former Axis officers and political leaders, among them war criminals, to escape Allied trials and denazification.”

Johann Alois Senefelder – “was a German actor and playwright who invented the printing technique of lithography in 1796”

The more you know! Yes this entry was completely random but maybe now you know a little bit of random history. Also some of the random things I do with my time. I wonder if there are Ciels throughout history…I might have to check that out next. All quoted material was taken from Wikipedia.

GameCrush: Be a Player

Posted in horror, personal, video games, wacky on March 29, 2010 by ampzr

Upon visiting Topless Robot I discovered that there’s a new site called GameCrush. I’d explain it all but it’s best to read this:

“GameCrush, now available in public beta, introduces an entirely new interactive social gaming experience allowing gamers to meet, match and pay to play online games with other users (PlayDates). GameCrush is the only online service that allows gamers to choose a companion to spice up their favorite online games. Both Players and PlayDates define the experience they want- either “flirty” or “dirty”, choosing from some of the most popular console titles and casual web-based games. To register for free, visit www.gamecrush.com.”

Also from the GameCrush website,

“The GameCrush Public Beta is temporarily unavailable due to the incredible user response (more than 10,000 inquiries in five minutes). We are adding new servers to provide players with the best PlayDate experience possible. Games with GameCrush PlayDates start at $6.60 for ten minutes.”

I’m not entirely sure how to feel about this. As a girl gamer I play with boys all the time for free. Does this make me more or less of a game whore than if I charged money? No but in all seriousness I’m wondering what people think of this? Is it just perpetuating the ideas that lonely boys play video games and girls will only play if they’re getting something out of it?

Once the site is back I’ll sign up and see what it’s all about. I’m curious but really afraid. I don’t want to be saddened by what I might see or experience on this site. Also I don’t know if I could be “flirty” or “dirty” while playing games with someone. Unless you count swearing up and down because I’m getting my ass kicked. I’d probably just end up laughing all the time at the ridiculousness of the situation.

I’ll give my thoughts later once I take a look. (God save my soul.)

Who want’s to bet the girls you’ll be playing with won’t look like this?
