Maid-sama 01

Friday, April 9th, 2010

If you were J.C.Staff, and you wanted to adapt a shojo manga into a show, why not pick one where the female lead is a tsundere maid? Sounds like a good idea to me.

“I spent most of yesterday thinking of why I hate you.”

Yes, this may be a shojo show, but it has the authentic J.C.Staff tsundere flavor.


I’m sick of this “loli” business

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

I think I’ll focus on sparkly bishonen characters now.

I mean, J.C.Staff is doing it, so why not me?

Preordered Toradora

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock or are really new to this blog, you know that I am a J.C.Staff fanboy whose love for J.C.Staff exceeds his love for Toho and Magic the Gathering put together, and that the reason my art skills are the way they are today is because I sold my soul to J.C.Staff in 2005.

Then you may be wondering, why on earth has there been no J.C.Staff-related post since that Railgun post five months ago?

A Certain Scientific Railgun started off awesome but I kind of lost interest halfway through. Of the upcoming J.C.Staff shows, Maid-Sama looks like it has the potential to be a hit, and I might try a volume of the manga to see what it’s like, and I will definitely check out the anime in April, but it doesn’t have me excited the way Potemayo, Toradora, or even Index/Railgun did.

Sadly, not every shojo manga can look like I Am Here! (at least that’s what Del Rey calls it)

And as for Uraboku (Betrayal Knows My Name)… well, I tried Loveless because it was J.C.Staff, and I will try this for the same reason, but it’s going to have to be really special to get me to watch it. I mean, cool sparkly bishonen are something any aspiring comic artist should draw every now and then, but an entire show of them?

So really, the only J.C.Staff-related news I felt like writing about is that the tsundere anime that surpasses everything is going to get its US release in July.


Scientific Railgun 04

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

I didn’t realize how badly I wanted to watch this episode until I was done watching it. And then I watched it again. Remember how I said before that the author had taken Railgun as an opportunity to fix Index and Touma was the most significant fix? There was nothing I wanted to see more in Railgun than the rewritten Touma, and the changes in the anime adaptation made his debut even better than I had hoped.


Dengeki Hime

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

In episode 1 of the new J.C.Staff series A Certain Scientific Railgun, the term “Dengeki Hime” (Electric Princess) is used to describe the main character, Mikoto Misaka. Is this a reference to the magazine published by the same corporation that also publishes Dengeki Daioh, the anthology Railgun appears in?

If you are avoiding Railgun because of bad memories of Index and the general trend of spinoffs and sequels not being as good as the original, you should shake that off and watch anyway. Here’s why:


The real message of Endless Eight…

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

At this time, fan favorite anime studio Kyoto Animation has stirred up controversy by animating the “Endless Eight” episode of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2nd season) differently six weeks in a row and counting. What are they trying to tell the fans?

Well, I have the answer.

Yes, the show actually does have Sweet Blue Flowers.

What Kyoto Animation is saying, is “Watch more J.C.Staff shows”.


J.C.Staff Spring Shows (2)

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

This is for the guys hating on First Love Limited because it’s by the author of Strawberry 100%, the anime of which was not so special. And this is for the guys who don’t give Hayate the Combat Butler 2nd Season a chance because they dropped the first season because of its descent into filler land.

Wait, we need one more “Shut up”.

Hayate the Combat Butler 2nd Season

First Love Limited

Here’s how to watch good anime:

1) Find out what shows J.C.Staff is running this season.
2) Watch them.

Works for me!


Sweet Blue Flowers

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

As you know, the schoolgirl yuri drama manga Sweet Blue Flowers by Takako Shimura is getting an anime adaptation by J.C.Staff. The manga so far has struck me as slow, low-key, sweet, charming, but not particularly awesome. Still, every show J.C.Staff makes has a chance of rocking like a mother.
