Spring 2021

Looks like we are on Spring 2021 already! and i have yet to post about what i watched LAST season.

I really enjoyed the previous season, I think in-depth I will save for the podcast.

The state of “free” anime in Singapore, I think Muse & Ani-one is doing a great job. And i watch them without ad-blockers :). I do not mind enduring multiple ads to support then.

Also, just some updates on the podcast. Yes, I’ve been thinking about how to do it. It is confirmed that I will be licensing this song for the podcast OP & ED,

Because i just like how the way it sounds. Further to that! I have stumbled on a quite a good fivver artist and i also plan to engage them to update the antenna-tan that I use for my twitter. (Found the antenna-tan from an imageboard YEARS ago) I thought you know maybe can turn antenna-tan into someone in her 20s instead.

This is the fivver person that I’m thinking to engage,

I really like this art style and the price ain’t too bad as well!

What do you think?

Eden Zero trailer

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 ?

Support this blog by buying through our Amazon affiliate link.

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.

Until then, stay safe!

My old podcast and where are we now

https://archive.org/details/pleasetellmepod

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?

  1. Titles were social media ready
  2. Topics we are really into
  3. We wanted to have fun
  4. Shrank audio file to 64 kbps bit-rate for the podcast (remember is back in 2012!)

Things which we did wrongly.

  1. Possible copyright claims on the song / music choices
  2. 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

  1. https://www.nash.jp/nml/search/detail/NSK-V712-08
  2. https://www.nash.jp/nml/search/detail/NSK-V712-01

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,

誰もが夢中になるほど 魅力的なお姫様

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

それは誰もが 秘めている力なの

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.

Also,

I think this is sign i need to license this song for the podcast!

2021 animes you can start watching

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.

Podcast opening ideas

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

These are the songs that i have in mind. So i have a little difficult time to choose. Would appreciate anyone help by telling me what you like. Perhaps i can narrow it down some more.

I am leading heavily towards White blade melody, Silly bee, cutie lovely princess or my love song. These 4, i think will be my top choices.

Let me know!
