Otaku Evolution Episode 157 - Christmas Grab Bag 2019

I always have a certain level of fun creating the Christmas episodes, even when I get a touch of seasonal depression myself. Normally, I really enjoy the holidays, at least initially, but when other people around me aren't keeping up to my level of excitement, it bums me out. It figures, the one time of year I put aside most of my cynicism (most, not all) is when some people decide to get pouty. But then, as a shut-in, I don't have to deal with a lot of things other people do, so who am I to judge? As of this description writing, I'm pretty okay, chilling and playing Christmas music. Christmas is next week, so let's hope I can keep up the positive vibes.

Who am I kidding? I wouldn't be me if I couldn't bitch about something. You can enjoy the season and still have gripes. Nothing is absolute.

Otaku Evolution Episode 107 - An Otaku Evolution Julbord

My annual Christmas episode has it all, atmosphere, a framing device, a variety of different anime, some Christmas music, and... that's everything, right? There's nothing else to be had? I guess some gratuitous sex would be nice, but I'm anime reviewer, so that's not likely to happen to me. But I do get to cover some Lupin III (again), Vandread (again), and Azumanga Daioh (!!!). Enjoy the video, folks. It took me a long while to do.

Happy Chrisannakuhzaalia!

For those who've been following the show, my Christmas episodes are usually the videos I put the most effort into. This year, lacking a single, sufficiently Christmas-y anime to review itself, I decided to pick a few episodes of different anime that take place on and/or around Christmas. Lupin The Third, Case Closed, and Super Dimensional Fortress Macross are the subject of my holiday hand wringing. Don't forget to check out the new Lucky Squid Studios commercial included!

 

Gift Ideas for the Creative Geek

Looking to spice up your holiday gift ideas? Not sure what to get the electronically inclined family member? Below are some simple gift ideas and ways to personalize that everyone is sure to love. iPods (or other MP3 Players) iPods are great gifts. They’re relatively inexpensive and nearly everyone can find a use for one. Unfortunately it’s an easy gift to screw up. If they just received an iPod within the last couple of years that’s still working great, getting them another would just be a waste. The “new” features aren’t worth the money when things are working great. Upgrading to gain more space, however, would be a reasonable premise.
