Charlotte (Shārotto)

Published by:

When I saw the name Charlotte on the summer anime list, I thought it was just going to be some cutesy moe anime (I avoid previews when I can unless it’s a second or third season). Charlotte was not even close to being a moe anime though the Yuu’s little sister is a really cute kid with big saucer eyes, then again, everyone had saucer eyes ESPECIALLY the girls. His little sister is like the epitome of moe with sugar and honey added.

Yuu is a model student with great grades and a bright future. Ok, maybe he’s not. He’s using a supernatural ability to take over bodies for 5 seconds at a time. He keeps using this ability over and over until one day he’s caught by the Hoshinoumi Academy student council head Nao Tomori. Nao Tomori forces Yuu to transfer to Hosihnoumi Academy where they can protect students with supernatural abilities. Yuu joins Nao on the student council and helps her to locate and secure other supernaturals. Continue reading

Yeah I know…blog neglect.

Published by:

I know, I know. The blog has been neglected AGAIN.

Where to begin…work has been hectic. I did have the wrist injury so that left me not able to type too well for like 2-3 months. Summer 2016 anime has been blah, I mean really blah. Been working on the game a lot and trying to coordinate artists, programmer help, voices, etc. So yes it’s been pretty busy lately. Going to try to add more to this blog and porkpieplatypus.com the next few weeks.

Astra Etherium Beta v0.76 is partially released

Published by:

Yep. I submitted the game for OUYA and at the same time that makes it available for Forge too. OUYA was ending submissions so I couldn’t wait until things were done and just had to go go go. Now I have the legacy of being the last game released on the OUYA so remember that for your future spot on Jeopardy. The members of OUYAForum were very helpful and pivotal to get things to where they are. They helped with art, voice acting, beta testing and more. There was no way I was letting that deadline go by without the game being available on OUYA with all the help I got from them.

Things aren’t where I want them to be just yet but we’re getting closer. When more of the finishing touches are in, it’ll be released on a broader scale. We’re going to start with the Android markets since we already have Androids that work and then move on to AppleTV, PC, Mac, Linux, etc. If it’ll be playable on a toaster then it’ll be on toasters too.

Monster List (Yaoguai Mingdan)

Published by:

Monster List is an anime out of China. It’s in the same format as Cupid’s Chocolate where every episode is about 12 minutes. I assume that’s a thing for them. I have not done much research into China’s anime scene.

A foxy tempress, a tree demon, a girl with goddess powers and one guy in between them. Feng Xi would be the unwitting hero of this story. Drawn into situation after situation with these girls, he learns to adjust to his new life. One where he must preserve the peace and seemingly save the world at the same time. Continue reading

Crunchyroll is going to be dubbing anime?

Published by:

Crunchy dropped the news yesterday that they have a slate of shows they plan to dub. Most are current or just ended so it’s not like they picked some old stuff no one wants. I guess they knew these shows weren’t getting dubbed or dubs would be a while off and picked them up. They will be handling the Blu-ray and DVD releases too.

The show that they picked are a mixed bag. Like Kabaneri is an excellent show but Phantom World was kind of a dud and that was a surprise since Kyoto usually produces strong shows. The art was up to par but the show itself was just not there.

That list of shows is: Berserk (new series), Twin Star Exorcists, Gintama, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Myriad of Colors Phantom World, Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, Big Order, and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.

Custom Maid!

Published by:

Custom Maid is about a high school otaku who is “in the closet” about her obsession. The twist is she is from a rich family so she couldn’t show her love of anime/manga and all the culture even if she wanted to. Yuu even keeps her distance from her maids until she ends up being found out by her new maid Masaki. What she doesn’t know is that Masaki is actually one of her favorite doujinshi artists.

Custom Maid was one of the Best New 4-koma manga series of 2015 so someone out there likes it. This is one I’ll keep an eye on. For some reason I always find clueless rich people trying to be normal, to be funny.

Big Order (Biggu Ōdā)

Published by:

Big Order was the first of the Spring 2016 season to end since it was only 10 episodes. At least the action kept moving so it wasn’t a show like Grimgar which seemed like it was going nowhere for the whole season.

The show is about a boy named Eiji who is blamed for the world destruction of the world 10 years earlier. Since Eiji is blamed for everything that has happened, everyone seems to be against him except his sister. Eiji has to try to survive in a world that wants him dead. Along the way he has to fight to stay alive and also keep his sister safe. Continue reading
