Oh Sweet Soft Bigotry Of Low Expectations

I'm actually enjoying the current anime season.*

Kannagi, of course, and Macademi Wasshoi, and Kemeko (at least when there's not too much Kemeko in it), and now Toradora.

Ami needs to get punched in the face, but Ami does get punched in the face, so that's all right.

Next I think I'll sample To Aru Majutsu no Index.

Meanwhile, if you value your sanity, avoid Cute Overload for a day or so.

* Why?  What were you expecting this post to be about?

Rant

Bugger, It's A Sony

My Kannagi OP video on YouTube is probably about to go offline.  Sony has issued a copyright claim against it.

Which is fully within their rights (I think) but bugger them anyway.  It's the opening credits.  No, I can't even claim fair use, but it's the opening credits.

Interestingly, the claim came from Sony Music Entertainment, who presumably have the rights to the CD release.  Not the anime, but the CD.

Still seem to be plenty of other copies of the Kannagi OP online for now.  We'll see what happens there.

Update: Apparently they've just released the OP CD single and are about to release the ED single, so naturally being mindless corporate control-bots (this is the same company that brought you the rootkit CD, after all) they're going around removing anything that might interest people in those CDs.

Having said that, the video still works, at least for me.

Meanwhile, I've loaded up the trial version of Flash CS4 and tried out the new H.264 encoding.  So far I haven't got a file that will even play, so I can't say what the quality is like yet.

Update: Ah, not actually Adobe's fault there, just a missing codec.  Of course, it would be nice if it alerted you to the fact instead of processing the file into something unuseable.  A little box that said, oh, "HEY DUMBASS, YOU DON'T HAVE A CODEC INSTALLED TO PLAY THAT FILE, SO WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ME TO DO?!" would be fine.

Update: Okay, the results now play in Flash and QuickTime, but not in Zoom Player. cry   Corrupted in Zoom Player 5.5, and don't work at all in 6.

The Good, The Bad, And The JPop Music Video

There's a music video out of the theme song for Kannagi.

It's terrible.

Openings

Three for the price of one!

Kannagi:


Kemeko Deluxe:


Macademi Wasshoi:


Sorry about the quality, particularly with that last one.  Youtube seems determined to squeeze every last bit out of the file size these days.  When my copy of Adobe Design Studio CS4 arrives next week I'll re-encode them as Flash H.264 and put up local copies.

Update Update Update

Six rounds of updates, plus two updates to Windows Update itself, with the attendant eight reboots, and I'm ready to begin installing SP1.

Say Hello, Nagi

While I still haven't managed to get SP1 installed (tip: DO NOT INSTALL LANGUAGE PACKS UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO), I have settled on a name.

Nagi it is.

Which raises the question: Just how many anime series are there about high-school (or middle-school) goddesses?  Given that I've now used Kamichu!, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Kannagi.  Not that I really need more than three desktop computers...
