While watching Tantei Gakuen Q the other day, I thought that the arrow with the lips on Yukihira-san's shirt was a bit odd since it seems to imply that people should kiss her armpit. Those Japanese and their strange fetishes...

Kiss my... Armpit?    Kill JAPAN

In contrast, the picture from Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko of a pair of lips with a line through them seems to imply that one should "Kill JAPAN", however, the line doesn't actually go over the lips, so that part is a bit confusing. Subtle imagery in Magical Girl shows is common in Japan, so I won't rack my brain over the actual meaning of such a poster.

I never realized the versatility of a pair of lips...

Speaking of subtle, head on over to the Pic of the Week.

The kids from School Rumble were kind enough to send me a cake celebrating two years of Kitchen Discotheque.

Two Years of Anime Curiosities

Naturally, I'm flattered for all the attention that I didn't have to imagine; being recognized by anime characters is quite an honor. It's unfortunate that Kotone and Ayaka couldn't make it this year, like they did last year...

At first, I thought the word "WELL COME" was just a fluke as I noted before, but it seems to be the usual way to spell the common American greeting in Japan. The two examples below, going left to right, are from Speed Grapher and Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko.

Speed Grapher    Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko

Some may think that this is simply a common spelling error, but others may think, due to its relatively frequent occurrence, that this could be a way for the government to subvert the growth of English into the Japanese language.

Although, the people in the latter group are probably a little... odd...

Of course, this is of little importance with respect to the latest spatulas and the Pic of the Week that has the sports enthusiast in mind.

In the relatively normal world of Gakuen Alice, I question the use of the word "Sweat" when describing a consumable item - it seems redriciaus to use that word.

Sweat driciaus Howaion

The next thing you know, someone's going to use that in the name of a drink...

Glen sent me a curious link that uses sprites from Super Mario Brothers in a flash animation to teach physics. It's amazing what some kids can do these days. Reminds me of when I made a HyperCard presentation in high school about The Odyssey - it rocked.

I also forgot to mention that Robert Broglia figured out the whole TIR_MES1.IMG error, and I updated that page. He said, "You can thank AX and the excruciatingly long wait for the Sakamoto concert for this patch :)"

Before I start thinking up fictional names for drinks and making a HyperCard stack, grab the latest spatulas and the driciaus Pic of the Week.

July 10, 2005 / adjuvant

I've been rather busy lately so my regular updates have suffered; hopefully, I'll be able to update more than once a week in the future.

I haven't been watching much anime lately, but I did manage to catch a subtle joke by Mint in Galaxy Angel TV: Season 4.


Despite her strange cosplay fetish, her sharp wit consistently challenges the humor of her teammates, which, in turn, raises the bar for all space comedies featuring girls searching for Lost Technology.

"Serial" - Breakfast for nerds, food that matters

I probably really didn't need to rant about AX 2005 this year, but I did anyway. The most disappointing thing about the whole affair was that only one person came up to me and said, "Hey, I know you! I read your website." Thanks go out to that guy, but it still fell short of my hopes of having five people recognize "The Spatula". I bet more people would've responded to my "Real Otaku Heroes" sign, especially since some of the songs were played on the channel showing the event schedule in the hotel room.

Some of you probably don't care about the rant, so here's the usual Pic of the Week.

July 1, 2005 / yew

Not too much to say right now since I'm heading off to Anime Expo; just another spatula and the ubiquitous Pic of the Week.

Maybe I won't need to rant this year...
