4000 TPS Edition

Top Story


Anime of the day is Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara, a.k.a Iroduku, from 2018.  There's no manga or novel behind this; it's an anime original, and there was no buzz about it at the time, so I stumbled across it during a lull at work when I actually had time to watch anime.  (That situation has since been corrected.)

I tend to give these shows my own names, because it's shorter, like Re: Slime, or as with Autistic Psychic Alien Yakuza Battle Robot because if someone just mentions Hinamatsuri I can't remember if that's the one with the girls practicing traditional Japanese festival dances (it's not).*

Anyway, this is Colourblind Timetravelling Granddaughter Witchfriends.  There's rather a lot going on in the plot.  I really do recommend this one; it came as a surprise even to me, and I watch far too much anime.

I Can't Belive It's Not Haruhi Anime Music Video of the Day



Sharada is the definitive AMV for season one, but this is the definitive AMV for season two.  It reduces the Endless Eight arc to five and a half minutes, which is probably worth a Nobel Prize.  In physics, or maybe medicine.

For those who haven't seen it, the story spends eight episodes trapped in a time loop, with scenes repeating over and over, but with not a single frame of animation reused.  It's a lot of fun if you start out with a high SAN score, but watch out if you used that as your dump stat.



Got Milk?  Don't Got a Kitchen Knife?  Let's Fix That Video of the Day



Yes, there's an entire channel where the guy makes knives out of things it shouldn't be possible to make knives out of.  Milk is not even the most surprising.

1 It's reached the point where even Best Buy has a few 5800Xs in stock--and Micro Center's selling them for $369 now.

I think the thing that really earned Iroduku a place on my list was that they didn't cheat on the ending. I went into it worried that they would, because the path is so well-trodden, but they had confidence in the story they were telling. Makes me wish I could buy the Blurays for less than $315 plus shipping from Japan...

3 Iroduku is classic P.A. Works when they are at their best.  Unfortunately, it is one of the titles that got trapped in purgatory for a Western release by Amazon, just like Re:Creators.

4 Just read this remarkable article about a major fraud in the Cryptocurrency markets. Basically there's a fake "Stablecoin" out there theoretically begged to the dollar, but it's not really backed up by dollars, and on various unbanked exchanges, they're inflating them with promotions in order to snag coins of real value and extract the cash from the market, and it's a HUGE percentage of the flow in the markets.

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