RIP Norio Shioyama

No living the good life entry this week, my friends. Someone I look up to, Norio Shioyama died in a fire recently. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-04-13/armored-trooper-votoms-character-designer-norio-shioyama-passes-away/.114754 Norio Shioyama was the character designer for one of my favorite anime, Armored Trooper VOTOMs, along with other important ones, like Daitarn 3 and Ronin Warriors. In my case, though, I knew […]

Adventures in South Carolina

Jeezus fuckin’ Christus, what a week. Lemme start from the top. On Sunday, I went off to the airport, first to Atlanta, and then to Columbia, SC. Not much to say there…both flights were uneventful, aside from a slight delay to Columbia. I did notice something more general about the people I saw, but that’s […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 9: June 24, 2016

This week wasn’t as busy as the last, thankfully…though next week will be pretty busy. But for now, here’s the lowdown of how I’ve been doing: WATCHAN: Macross Delta 12 and Jojo 12. Macross: Not much combat, but it seems like the whole episode was plot advancement, character development, and preparation for everyone to sally […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 8: June 17, 2016

As you can probably tell from my previous huge entry, I’ve been having a very busy week. But not so busy I haven’t been able to get anything else done… WATCHAN: Finally caught up with Macross and Jojo, and also binge-watched Giant Gorg. Gorg: Hoo boy, what a fun ride. IMO some plot points were […]

Back to our regular schedule, friends! I’ve had myself a VERY productive week. Here’s the lowdown: WATCHAN: Jojo episode 5, Macross Delta episode 5, and the Escaflowne movie. Jojo: I’ll leave things vague so as to avoid spoiling people, but I’ll just say that bit with the photograph hit me in the feels a little […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 4: April 22, 2016

Another week, another update. You know the drill by now, my friends, so I’ll just get right down to it! WATCHAN: Still keeping up with Macross Delta and Jojo. Delta was really fun, the mercats which show up in the episode are so cute. Jojo is still pretty cool as well, even if you’ve already […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 2: April 8, 2016

Another week, another update. You know the drill by now, my friends, so I’ll just get right down to it! WATCHAN: Caught the first eps of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (Part 4) and Macross Delta. Quick thoughts on what I saw: Jojo started off well enough. The color palette is incredibly weird, and kinda makes me […]
