I'm sure most of you are all aware that Saimoe 2008 is over weeks ago, though I'd just like to share something related to it to you guys.
Early last month I went on a trip to Tokyo, had a lot of fun there, maybe I'll try and post something up if I ever feel like it, but that's not the focus of this post.
Naturally (for most readers here anyway) I went to Akihabara for the usual "pilgrimage" and stuff. And coming across a shop that sells only PCs and laptops (remember that Akiba is actually famous for selling electric stuffs first before it became famous as an otaku ghetto), I noticed this stuck on the entrance:
'Nuff said. (Regardless of what you think of the outcome or of Kagamin. )
I myself did not participate in any voting whatsoever, since I was too busy and couldn't be bothered to handle all the partisanships without risking getting my blood pressure boiling, let's just say.
The final itself was held just before I left for Tokyo, and it was only by chance that I popped by and learned that she won, and within days (when I saw this), this was posted. It was just too amusing so I took a photo of it.
Quite arguably the most earth-shattering discovery since I found out that pretty girls actually do fart(Damn you, Mythbusters!!) My raison d'etre, my beliefs, everything that I've stood for..... All rendered obsolete by this one flawless explanation. My preference for small breasts have been proven to be nothing but a farce! The fact that I snub those who take a liking toward females with large bosoms makes this hurt even more, as they can now use it against me! I don't know if I can look at delicious flat chests the same way ever again. ｡･ﾟ･(ﾉД`)･ﾟ･｡
Many a times in anime, females react negatively whenever another person makes direct or in-direct physical contact with their breasts, or lack thereof in Louise's case. Most may consider it as an act of perversion on the perpetrator's behalf, or in other words, an element of fanservice for the anime viewer. But if you were to look past all the negativities, there might just be an underlying message that the anime in question is trying to convey, which is by virtue of possessing anything more significant than a flat chest, an anime female is at risk of having breast cancer. As such, the gropings in the various anime, usually undertaken by another female, is actually just that person being well aware of such risks and is assistanting their female counterpart by checking for tumors.
As I backup data from my desktop due to an unforeseen need to reformat, I'm going about the blogosphere to see what people thought about Code Geass' seemingly open-ended conclusion, in regards to Lelouch's fate. Both sides of the argument come off as convincing, to me at least, though I do not have an actual opinion on it myself partly due to how the questions that lingered my mind were already answered. I've decided to instead attempt to please both crowds and concoct my own conclusion, which should address the two key issues; Lelouch being dead and him being with C.C on the hay cart.
Announced at the 2008 Eastern Japan Toys and Trade Fair held yesterday, CCP Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of Bandai Namco, unveiled a lineup of Macross Frontier themed RC cars which will be out in stores soon. What an ingenious way to reinvigorate a dying generation of toys! More after the jump.
