Open House for Aniblog Tourney Voters

Mahou Sensei Negima 181

Hello and welcome, voters coming from the Aniblog Tourney. There are soft drinks and cookies in the back.

The post you are reading right now was written more than a week ago on the 18th. The reason for this – and the reason my blog hasn’t had as many posts lately – is because I’m currently in the middle of finals. In fact, if you’re coming in as soon as this post is released, I should be sitting down and writing my last exam for the year as you’re reading this! Here’s hoping I come home to some good news. ^_^

I’ve got an About page up that gives information about the site, but I’ll give you the abridged version here. My name is Yerocha, and I’ve been a manga and anime fan for several years now. Shades of Grey is a blog I started where the main focus is on manga. The average post is done in response to chapters from the series I read, although rather than simply discussing the events of the chapter, the focus is on how those events relate to the series as a whole, or sometimes what they might mean for the future. There’s almost no recap of chapter events because it’s rare for the posts to require it. Read the rest of this entry

Chobits – Review

This means I’ve reviewed 2 shonen, 2 shojo and 2 seinen. That was totally not intentional.

That took too long! Between school and vacation, I couldn’t find a good time to actually work on this until recently. Hopefully I can release the next one in a much more timely fashion.

Deadman Wonderland – Review

As you may have noticed, I’ve seen the “murder for shock value” twist a few too many times.

Well, even though it took a month and a half to make, it was still faster than the last video. Most of my problems were in the writing, as it had been a long time since I’d written the Black Cat review. After that, the actual recording didn’t take long, and the editing was mainly held back by problems with my new video editor. I went back to MovieMaker for this one, and I’ll probably stay there until I get used to making videos in general. It looks alright, though, since I stopped trying to abuse the zoom mechanics.

I’m still a little apprehensive about this video, but considering the positive response to the last one, I shouldn’t let it bother me. The one issue I will bring up is the camera. The view window on the side doesn’t show the entire field that will be recorded, so it was difficult to tell what I would get. I’ll try to fix that for next time.

The next review should still take more than two weeks, since I have English work that needs to take priority for a bit. Plus, it’s gonna be a little more complex then these last two.
