No, I’m not pregnant. I’ve just started a new project. I’m calling it “Iyashikei.” It’s sort of a side blog to She’s Lost Control, focusing on otaku lifestyle, convention culture, cosplay, figures, and models.
You can check it out here. It’s still a work in progress, but I’ve populated it with articles. Let me know what you think!
This is something I’ve wanted to pull the trigger on for a long time. We’ve mentioned it a couple times on NTR Radio, but only recently has any progress been made, and the project is progressing quite quickly, so I’m happy to be able to finally put this out there.
I’m proud to officially announce NYAAN – The Magazine: Not Your Average Anime Nerds.
Welcome, gamers, to the new She’s Lost Control Gaming!
First, I want to apologize for neglecting this section of the site for the better part of a year. During that time, however, I did a good bit of soul-searching, gaming-wise, and realized that the most fun I have gaming and writing about games is when I’m in my element, playing and writing about games in genres I know well and greatly enjoy.
Hey, folks, just a quick heads-up. Last night, I did a guest spot on my good friend’s YouTube channel, “The Geeky Panda.” As part of his “Guide to an Anime Con” series of videos, we talked about hotel room drama and how to avoid it.
So, Kiddtic over at Kidd’s Anime Blog had a great idea: Get a whole lot of anime bloggers, journalists, and podcasters to each submit a top 12 anime for the year, then tally up the votes for an overall best 12 anime of the year.
He calls it the “Ani-Blogger’s Choice Anime Awards” or “ACAA,” and I’m participating this year!
“Do you know about the ‘Cellphone Charm?’
If you keep a picture of the person you like on your cellphone for three weeks, and if nobody finds out, your love will be realized!”
School Days starts out like any other highschool romance comedy. We see the protagonist, Makoto Itou, his knuckleheaded friend, Taisuke Sawanaga, Kotonoha Katsura, the girl he admires from afar, and Sekai Saionji, the girl he’s just friends with.
After finding out that Makoto is into Kotonoha, Sekai takes it upon herself to get them together. She arranges a rooftop lunch between the three of them. There, we get the first real look at Kotonoha’s personality, juxtaposed with Sekai’s. Kotonoha’s very gentle and polite, compared to Sekai, who’s more informal. Kotonoha’s a much softer woman (Though her cooking is terrible!). More romance comedy hyjinks come into play, such as Makoto comically pretending to like Kotonoha’s (terrible) cooking, and subsequently almost choking on it.
The next day, Makoto confesses to Kotonoha. Convenient, since Kotonoha had actually admired Makoto from afar like he did her. She thanks Sekai for playing matchmaker. Later, Makoto also thanks Sekai, promising to pay her back.
