Shakugan no Shanatan shows what would happen if Shana somehow shrunk to the size of a mini-goddess. I guess this is a special feature on the Japanese DVD of Shakugan no Shana. It’s pretty much 3 minutes of pure (cute) craziness with Shana-tan sitting on Yuji’s head, eating melon-pan, sharpening her sword, drooling on Yuji’s head, and yelling "uruchai!" I think if cuteness could kill, I wouldn’t be here writing this. For some reason this episode also reminded me of Pugyuru. It’s probably just the craziness they share in common.

I really love this kind of self-referential humor. The anime takes stabs at itself and ends up with something that could really be a spinoff. Maybe not, but I’d sure as hell watch it! I can’t wait for the next installment of Shakugan no Shana-tan!

Recent anime video playback issues…

After I had downloaded the yu fansub version of Yomigaeru Sora Rescue Wings, I had sort of a hard time opening the file. I tried the Windows Media Player first, then the BS Player. After messing with a bunch of settings, I still couldn’t get the subs to show up. I was on the AnimeSuki forums, and it seems some other people had trouble getting those subs to show as well.

Sorta Weekly Poll of the Week: Anime Seiyuu, Authentic or Professional sounding?

First, the results of last week’s poll, How should Hantsuki be resolved?

Rika dies; Yuuichi is sad, yet he holds her memory dear to him 33% ( 1 )
Rika lives; Yuuichi and her get married like in the ED 0% ( 0 )
Rika dies; Yuuichi marries the chain-smoking nurse 0% ( 0 )
Rika lives; Yuuichi dies and Rika gets his heart (thanks, Elyscape!) 66% ( 2 )

Okay, so two of you said Yuuichi should die and Rika should get his heart. Now that’s a plot twist! I voted for Rika dies. Overall, kind of a sad turnout. That’s okay though, you can vote for the next poll!

How to: Automate Anime Downloads with Azureus and RSS Feeds

Hey all!

With the new anime season out in full swing, I thought I’d write a tutorial on how to automate your anime downloads using Azureus and RSS feeds. It’s pretty simple and I’ll walk you through the process with explanations and pictures.

Once you’ve set up the RSS URLs and the filters (don’t worry if this
makes no sense yet), Azureus can automatically check sites such as
Tokyotoshokan and Animesuki for newly released episodes and download
them for you.

If you find this tutorial helpful, let me know and I’ll try to come up with some more time-saving how tos that are anime related.
