HoloWeekend Discontinues

Mio is currently running in the HoloPortal Relay, while the next set of events is queueing up.

One more to go.

Update: Welp, the next set of events just got unqueued.  Looks like YouTube shadowbanned the whole of HoloEN Gen 2.

YouTube has been unsubscribing people repeatedly because their magic algorithm is dogshit.  They were all over 100k two days ago; now they're all back around 50k.  Sana - the first in line to debut - now has just 38k subscribers on YouTube, but 160k followers on Twitter.  But that's a rant for another day.

Before the debut of HoloEN Gen 2, Kiara of HoloEN Gen 1 will complete her interviews of HoloEN Gen 0.



With Hololive, Nijisanji, and Prism all streaming every which way I haven't had time to properly check out Cyberlive, who, despite their generic name, seem to be doing good things.


Oh, and since the EN Gen 2 debut is postponed due to Tropical Storm Susan, I'll mention this:

more...

I Come Back To You Now, At The Turn Of The Tide




Haachama has returned, and with her the Reddit Shitpost Review.  (On its first anniversary too.)

Haachama has been absent for a few weeks, apart from some guest appearances on pre-recorded events.  Speculation was that she was taking time off streaming because she needed to focus on her university studies - she's back in Japan after completing high school in Australia, and the story was she needed to adjust and catch up with the difference in courses.

Turns out speculation was 100% accurate.  She confirmed it in her return stream yesterday.

Now we just need a collab with Luto from PRISM Project, who is so Australian she sang the Aeroplane Jelly song on stream.


Meanwhile this server locked up again.  And after I rebooted, I accidentally ran the index repair with the database running, so I had to shut down again and re-run it.

Setting up the new server, but I'm working seven days a week at my day job so things could be spotty for a few more days.

Everything is already backed up to three other servers, though, including one in Australia.

It's a four-pomf alert!



We'll have to wait a few months to see how it is, but that trailer absolutely nails it.

Well, That Was Fast

Five days ago I said - with respect to Hololive's latest manga-styled promotional artwork - just make the anime already.

Well.




There's no date attached; they seem to be doing this in house and are hiring staff.  There will be a manga released first.

This Might Break YouTube




The blonde girl is Coco Kaine, from Hololive USA.  Which, um, doesn't exist.

Update: It broke YouTube.


Here's the new one, long may it last.

It's Better Than Bad, It's Good

Log Horizon season 3 announced for October.

No trailer yet so here's the old one again.



Speaking of season 3 announcements, where did Non Non Biyori disappear to?  Been eight months.

Manga Notes

I haven't been watching much anime the last couple of months, after a several-month binge where I pretty much caught up on things.

Just recently, though, I have started reading some manga online, and when I say some, I mean a metric poot-load.  The problem with it being online is that it's all there and you can always just read one more chapter and there's about a million chapters.

I've probably forgotten some but my recent post sub-heads have been breadcrumbs so I should be able to get most of them.

Anyway, read and recommended:

Komi Can't Communicate - this started it, because I kept seeing Komi memes and didn't know who she was
So I'm a Spider, So What? - not sure how I tripped over it except that its very popular right now
Skeleton Soldier Couldn't Protect the Dungeon - just found this one while browsing and it's, well, read a couple of chapters and see what you think
Melt Away Mizore-chan - just found this one while browsing and laughed my butt off
Dungeon Nursery - apparently this one was abruptly cancelled, but the author pulled off a near-perfect ending anyway
Sword Dad a.k.a Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita - the adventures of a piece of cutlery and his catgirl daughter

Read and pretty decent:

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - bears within bears
A Returner's Magic Should be Special - isekais within isekais
Her Summon - the story isn't amazing, but the art is beautiful and the world-building is interesting


Read and meh:

The one with the dimension-hopping teenage girl con artist
Farming Life in Another World
Potion loli - no it's not actually called that
I can't believe my wife is a hot redhead queen in a fantasy world and I had a month to prepare before getting isekai'd
S-rank Drop Hero
Magical word magician guy


Avoid:

The one where the kid's mother twin-strikes everything
The one where the hero comes back to Earth after defeating the demon king with all his powers intact

June Anime Update

Just keeping track of what I've watched this year.

Dirty Pair TV & OVA
Endro!
My Roommate is a Cat
Hinamatsuri
Iroduku
Bunny Girl Senpai
Sakura Quest
Golden Time
Chunibyo (1 & 2)
Danmachi
Non Non Biyori (1, 2, and movie)
Merc Storia
Inari Konkon Koi Iroha
Hanayamata
Akanesasu Shoujo
Netoge no Yome?
Noragami (1 & 2)
Recovery of an MMO Junkie
Slayers Revolution and Evolution-R
My Hero Academia (1, 2, 3, and movie)
Rising of the Shield Hero (currently airing)

It looks like rather a lot when you put them all in one place.

I'd recommend most of them too, with the exceptions being Netoge, which simply isn't very good, the first half of season two of My Hero Academia, which you just have to bulldoze your way through somehow, and Golden Time, which is a beautiful adaptation of a very weak story.

We're getting more of Danmachi, Non Non Biyori, and My Hero Academia later this year, so I'll be following those closely.

And now I've run out again.  Have to scan back and find those recommendations.

I think I'll give Log Horizon a try.  It sounds formulaic but is supposed to be well done.

Update: It is indeed formulaic but well done, except for the opening theme which is terrible.  (The ending theme is much better; they should have just swapped them because everyone skips the ending theme anyway.)  I hope people are getting reincarnated as the heroes speculate, otherwise it's a bit grim.

Update 2: You know what?  They should steal the opening theme from Akanesasu Shoujo.  Would work perfectly for this.  Need different animation, yes, but still.
