Otaku Evolution Episode 132 - Ronin Warriors (Part 2)

Body: 

In the final part of my look at Ronin Warriors (well, at least until I cover the OVAs, but let's give it a break for a while), I take a look at Lady Kayura, the excellent opening themes, shameless toy marketing, several episodes of just Ryo and Rowen, and one of my favorite concluding episodes in an anime.

But why stop there? Why not a lot of unasked-for drama to pad this sucker out that's just me screwing around with sprite characters? Nothing fancy, just me wasting your time and mine, for the sake of fulfilling some weird desire to do more comic strip storylines.

Enjoy!

Otaku Evolution Episode 131 - Ronin Warriors (Part 1)

Body: 

 

The 2019 season of Otaku Evolution has started! I'm sure all four of you who watch these videos are jazzed about it. Just as I'm sure you're psyched to see one of my patented long introduction sequences wherein I'm just screwing around with the sprites. Nevermind the blatantly stupid perspective on that meeting room (it's worse if you look at the whole thing), I had this idea of a grief counseling scene where I would stumble in and just be really oblivious to everyone there in favor of the snacks. And yes, that was a dodgy attempt at a German accent for Herr Doktor.

 

Falldog's Sci-Fi Novel Rankings - February 2019 Edition

Body: 

To wrap up 2018 I wanted to share a something I've been working on over the past year, my list of top Sci-Fi novels (slash series where applicable).

First off, let me state that this list is a terrible, awful, no good, idea. No matter what order I would put these in there will always be someone who disagrees. That's totally okay, there are parts of this list that I may disagree with myself. There's so much going on in the science fiction genre that trying to compare and sort by best is like trying to compare apples and oranges. How do you compare ground breaking works that introduced new concepts well ahead of any real world implementation against enjoyable, albeit unimaginative, military sci-fi serials? What about series with four plus novels that dip and rise in quality depending on what's going on? Or even works elevated beyond beyond written form by fantastic audio book narration? The short answer is, you can't, not realistically at least.

Otaku Evolution Episode 130 - Year End English Dub Review V

Body: 

 

I know nobody gives a crap about my dumb sprite padding material, most especially because if you hadn't ever read my comic strips, there's about zero context, and you can't even read them anymore, except the sparse amount I put up on my DeviantArt gallery. The whole "storyline" bullshit? It's for me. It's basically just for me to work out story ideas I had that I never got to in my strips. Hopefully it provides some kind of atmosphere, regardless of context. But that aside, while I am committed to doing *less* of it in 2019, you'll still see it. It's not like I get any more or less views in videos that have it.

Otaku Evolution Episode 129 - Sailor Moon S: The Movie

Body: 

This year's Christmas episode, subtitled A Hastily Prepared Otaku Evolution Christmas, is well-named, because I didn't get the chance to do a lot of the wrap-around atmosphere-setting like in the past years. The best I could do was the usual zoom into Penguinopolis. But I did create a whole new background, a comfy, Christmas-tinged setting from which to anchor my sprite avatar between clips, and I'm deeply satisfied with how it turned out. Yeah, I probably could have gone through the trouble of animating the fire in the fireplace, but it's such a small detail (just pretend it was a fake fire, a light bulb shaped like a fire for the set... besides which, Penguinopolis probably wouldn't have chimneys) and if you're eagle-eyed, you'll notice how appropriate that painting is for the decor.
