The Internationl Saimoe League 2010‘s nomination phase had just begun, and you have exactly one week to nominate 12 girls you would want to enter the tournament. When voting though, please be aware that some characters have already prequalified to the main ISML preliminaries or tournament, and therefore need not be nominated again. The list of prequalified contestents are on the voting page, as are some of the rules that you should follow when nominating.

But man, I wonder how ISML 2010 will play out this year. Veterans like Shana, Fate, and Haruhi are bound to remain as some of the stronger contestents, but no doubt the girls fresh from 2009 will be able to create legends of their own too. For example, the famous Saki girls who dominated JSaimoe and was all the buzz during spring and summer now gets the opportunity to invade ISML as well. What about Akiyama Mio, the legendary bass player of K-On who singlehandedly spawned a moe moe kyun~ meme capable of rivaling Ranka Lee’s ni hao nyan itself? And let’s not exclude Bakemonogatari, with its colorful cast of girls that are bound to put up a good fight even in terms of moe (I think I saw a few cheers for Mayoi/Nadeko here and there).

The excitement, the joy, the despair RAGE cheers. Avaliable now at an ISML station near you.

Super-late episode post, but I think it’s only proper to give it the closure. I’m skipping the Railgun 12 and 13 posts though; let’s just say ep12 was awesome and ep13 barely warrants a 50-word description.

Continuing from episode 23, Arclight has just disintegrated Saten and has memorized all his fragments. He then summons a massive grotesque ball of doom that, upon analyzation from Disc, is revealed to be a giant cluster of Needless cells. Blade then rushes up the cell cluster and strikes at Arclight, but even Blade is now no match for the rigged bastard, and he gets easily thrown aside.

Arclight then fuses with the cell cluster and goes super-saiyan.

Fall is coming to pass, and another season is now swiftly upon us. It has been a long conception that the Winter and Summer seasons are relatively lackluster compared to Spring and Fall, due to the tendency of 2-cour shows to air in those two latter seasons, but experiences during this past year have told me otherwise (at least, Fall09 certainly cannot compare to Summer09). It is also customary for naysayers to pop out every season complaining about the lack of variety and the decline of quality in general in regards to the lineup, and I admit that for the past few seasons I’ve been one of them. This time however, I decided to take a more optimistic approach. Afterall, most gems in this world start out inconspicuous, yet they continue to deliver. What’s life without a little hope? /sunshine

In any case, here is a little preview for Winter 2010 along with my personal impressions (summaries/images taken from Chartfag’s Winter 2010 v2 preview chart because I’m too lazy to write/find my own).

Day 11 – Toradora! 19

Christmas is a festival, Christmas is a time for bells, joys, and cheers. It’s a time of presents and warmth that can withstand even the frostiest of snows and the strongest of blizzards. The feeling of contentment that arises from being with your favorite persons, within a city full of excitement, is magical.

But what if the person you hold dearest cannot be there with you? What is a celebration with no one but yourself, confined in an apartment devoid of life, to sing songs with?

Angel Taiga-sama is there to prevent it for you! She will track that person down, carry that person back to you if need be, and quietly leave you two together with a bright smile on her face. Minorin will be happy, Ryuuji will be happy, everyone will be happy. It’s Christmas afterall!

But then… who is going to help Angel Taiga-sama find the one she wants to be with? Who is going to bring that person to her? Who does she want to be with?

Day 10 – Denpa teki na Kanojo 02

Quoted for Great Truth.

In the end, there are no shortcuts to obtaining happiness. By the twisted logics of the Happiness Game, the reason why destroying other’s happiness can make one seem ostensibly happier is because one wills the illusion to exist. That illusion then is purely fabricated by the person to escape from the harshness of reality, but when the day comes for it to shatter, the pain will be that much greater. Surely you don’t expect a trip to the toilet after holding it in for a week to not be painful!

Day 9 – Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 05

It’s sad, but some things just won’t sting until it’s right in your face, shouting besides your ear.

Mirai learned it the hard way.
