“The character Erio is a bit of a hikikomori. Lately, it seems that the darker side of otaku culture, including NEETs, hikikomori, and those with unhealthy obsessions, have a greater presence in recent anime. What do you want otaku viewers, particularly those prone to this sort of lifestyle, to get out of your works?”
“The very first idea that I want to share is, “Who cares if you are a hikikomori?” If I didn’t have this job I, too, may have become a NEET. I thought that it would be nice if people, including myself, could step out and do something…but at the same time, who cares if you can’t take that very first step yet? What’s wrong with not taking it?”
TAKE THAT WESTERN FANBASE!
Making the best of being in my bedroom (who knows when I’ll be able to be basement bound once more, hopefully by summer), I’ve got my blu-ray player set up with my first BD, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko (I refuse to use the name given for its western market release). It looks great!
There’s not many BD releases I actually want though. K-ON! the movie is a definite buy but otherwise most of the stuff I’m interested in is WAY too much. I’m not buying Bakemonogatari/Nisemonogatari no matter how tempting the prospect of Mayoi in HD is.
Funny, I thought it’d be Sentai to license that. Still freaking awesome, although I’m not crazy about the name change to Ground Control to Psychoelectric girl”. Now I’m still hoping for NIS America (heck anyone at this point) to release the second season to WORKING!!
Last year I did a post about what shows I want to come out. I think the only one that did from that was Madoka Magica (which of course I knew would) along with the news of Aniplex also releasing Bakemonogatari. Unlike the last one, I relegate this to just TV anime.
2.Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
4.Kiss x Sis (TV version)
5.Astarotte no Omocha!
7.Ladies vs Butlers
9.Today in Class 5-2 (TV version)
10.Seitokai no Ichizon
Notice how almost everything on this list either from SHAFT, Xebec and Feel. I would have added Upotte!! but that’s too new and Nichijou MAY still come out (just not by Bandai Ent.).
Because this was quite a pain to stitch together in photoshop.
I must resist. Too much moe at one shot. My heart can’t take it…
As insanely adorable as this is, I don’t collect Nendoroids. I’m holding out for a figma of Erio (oh please do it Max Factory).
