A Subsidy In Every Pot Edition

Top Story


Anime of the day isn't an anime at all: Wakfu is a French cartoon animated in Adobe Flash to market an online game.  The thing is, it's about seventeen thousand percent better than you'd expect from that description.  This one just came out of nowhere.

Bucket of Crabs Anime Music Video of the Day



Song is Crabbuckit as covered by the Good Lovelies.  Anime is Tamako Market, an original series by Kyoto Animation.  Like all their work, the art and animation is first-rate; like all their original series, the story itself is sadly second-rate.



This gives an idea of KyoAni's work.  Yes, all these shows look the same, but they were actually chosen for that reason.  That's their house style, but not all their work is the same.  Lucky Star and Dragon Maid are two that strike out on their own.

1 Disclaimer: Mostly in order to eat bugs though.
I was going to comment on one of the articles, but I couldn't come up with anything original enough, so I just went with a quote and an ironic, posturing subtext that (or which, really) basically undermined everything I was trying to mock anyway, and I saw that it was good.

2 And I guess 6 is the new 4, FWIW.

3 Lord love a duck.  I went a tried to read that hothardware article, and while it was total craps that was written by an idiot I have to highlight this: "but that's currently a constant we have not control of, and we're answering questions of science here."
I think the extremely science guy here means "variable" when he says "constant", but otherwise, this is totally like all about like totally science and stuff.  And like.

4 Normal:  yeah, nobody pays for copy editors these days, and it shows.

5 Bah, that's not bad copy-editing (I mean no spellchecker or grammar editor would say the word is out of place): it's a rather clear case to be of someone who thinks that he/she/it knows something and obviously doesn't.

6 I mean, not to disagree in general, but "something we have not control of" is not something someone familiar with the English language would say.

7 Typoing 'no' as 'not', and accepting the word processor's approval is something a native English speaker might do.

8 I was curious, because Microsoft has "enhanced" Word's spell and grammar checkers, so I just tried it out and it didn't detect that mistake.  I was no expecting that.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
