5 Centimetres Per Second Novel English Translation Completed

20th June 2013 Update: The site has now been taken down but you may still read the translations and the rest of the site content in PDF here. Finally got round to picking up the half done translation. Pretty hard to believe it's been two years since then. Time flies, eh? If I wasn't a software developer myself it would have been quite...


Scotland Loves Animation 2012 - Nerawareta Gakuen, Wolf Children ::

I always end up thinking "Anime" instead of "Animation" but then I just noticed this K-ON poster is written the same too! I guess "Anime" does mean animation in French but I still prefer it means Japanese animation when used in English. So this year's Scotland Loves Animation 2012, the movies were... Both cinemas: Glasgow Film...


Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo Blu-ray Collector's Edition... With English Subtitles!

Happy New Year, readers! Feels like it's been a while since my last post but very busy with my full time job these days. You will find me Tweeting more on Twitter since it's quick and short compared to lengthy articles like these. But anyway... Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo is about a young girl named Asuna creates a small radio and goes up to a cliff...


Scotland Loves Animation 2011 - Hotarubi no Mori e Producer Q & A ::

It was the second year running for "Scotland Loves Animation" at Glasgow Film Theatre last weekend. Last year they had Evangelion 2.0 and Trigun. This year we seem to have a common theme of mythical beings. Apparently Letter to Momo won't be screening in Japan until 2012, Spring so we got to see it first here (as well as those in...

Comix Wave is really pushing his works to a wider international scale. Don't miss this opportunity...


Steins;Gate Official Materials Artbook, Q&A

I've become such a fan of Steins;Gate's story after playing the game I decided I had to find the "official materials" artbook. Unfortunately, since the book was published for the original Xbox360 game 2 years ago and Huke's artwork is so popular, it seems to be sold out everywhere. Fortunately, Amazon JP managed to restock the 2300 Yen...


Steins;Gate - Story Synopsis & Game Mini Review

Interest probably grew in the Otakusphere towards Steins;Gate because of Black Rock Shooter since it is illustrated by the same artist Huke and, I admit it was the art that caught my eye in the first place when I saw an article about the game. Then it was the story line. Since I can't discuss the game spoilers in the forums I might as well...


5 Centimetres Per Second One More Side Novel

Thanks goes to FallingStar for tweeting to me about this! I must have missed Shinkai's tweet about this somehow! It's been over 4 years since 5 Centimetres Per Second premièred in Japan and since then, it's been novelised and manganised. Now it's getting another novel, subtitled "One More Side" - But it's not a sequel. The original 5cm...


Arakawa Under The Bridge, Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie Review ::

I was bored of all the ties I keep seeing at the local stores so I thought I'd try to find something unique. When I watched Arakawa Under The Bridge I thought to myself, "I want that tie!" Sure enough, I found the Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie by Cospa at the AmiAmi store although it wasn't back in stock until December. For 4725 Yen, I was...
