Oh don’t go breaking our hearts again dear, Hiro Mashima, the trailer looks so promising and I am a sucker for his stories. The design of the characters are so similar with all the over-the-top backstory, it felt like this is the far flung version of fairy tale.
And another anime that we probably may not watch will be the last Eva movie, much thanks to the virus.
Is it just me or did i saw a nod to Diebuster aesthetics ?
On a separate note, the current season is really starting to be enjoyable so soon-ish i will be talking about them soon enough. I am also floating the idea where the podcast (Yet to be named) will be the flagship content and the blog is just complementary to it.
https://www.nash.jp/nml/search/detail/NSK-V712-08 < this will be the podcast opening where it will open with the first line. Throughout the podcast i will put the song in the background. And finally end the podcast off with the last portion of the song. Thinking something like an anime.
We were resourceful and creative so we hosted our podcast on archive.org for free.
Looking back, back in 2012 when we created the podcast there really isn’t much discussion by anyone about making money off it.
Here’s a listen to our first episode,
The recording done was really for the love of the subject and jumping across time zones between America & Australia, we got it to work for a few episodes before we both kinda gave up. One of the rules while recording was to have an alcoholic beverage and drink as much of it as possible because back in 2012, we thought it will be cool to do that. Thinking back, how did we even managed? I guess being in the 20s really did have its perks.
It is literally been a decade since.
What we did kinda right?
Titles were social media ready
Topics we are really into
We wanted to have fun
Shrank audio file to 64 kbps bit-rate for the podcast (remember is back in 2012!)
Things which we did wrongly.
Possible copyright claims on the song / music choices
Not having a plan
If i could turn back time and arm with the knowledge i have today, i believe our podcast could have become something good. Possibly having some sort of sponsorships and earning a good chunk at the side whilst feeding our hobbies.
But of course in hindsight, everyone is a genius so it is time to move forward. And as i’ve mentioned on the previous post that i will be licensing a music as my new podcast opening. So right now it is down to either
I am really leaning towards the first option, titled: Cutie Lovely Princess.
I mean look at the lyrics, it seems so perfect like an anime that could have happened.
Look at this line,
and also this line
朝寝坊してダッシュで学校 なんて 序の口です
and also this line
Almost every other line is an anime troupe gold. So ya, most probably will be licensing this for the podcast. I am also at this point in life where I can afford small purchases like this to justify making a hobby better. Will i ever make money with the podcast? Who knows.
So if you have not been keeping up with anime in Singapore, you can now watch legal FREE anime over at MUSE asia official youtube page. Really a god-sent distribution company that is doing a lot of good work.
I am just going to keep this short. I will include animes that started airing in 2021 (i think muse uploads it the same week as japan?). Here is by no means ranked, that will only come later after the season ends. For now, do enjoy the following animes. At the time of me writing this post, i think 1 or 2 series are in their 2nd episodes already. So fret not.
Yes, without much context, I am diving right in!. Actually before i go on and throw in the links, the context here
So after i saw the newsletter from Porkbun (the best domain registrar) that they have a free wordpress option, I thought WHY NOT kickstart back to blogging about anime stuff and this is less restrictive than the free wordpress itself. Plus i got my own swag URL.
Anyway long story short, I really want to do an anime-toku-otaku sort of podcast for the long term. The legal stuff out there is so much as compared to when i was starting out in the anime dark ages. I actually have no idea as to what sort of content to produce and the past few years, I have been making content and I thought to myself, why not I start doing the things that i really really love. This anime watching hobby has not gone away over the years, in fact it became stronger and stronger.
With that in mind, I have actually round up a list of possible songs that I want to license for my podcast. The links are
