Notecentric Launch!


Okay, so this is totally off-topic, but I want as many people as possible to read this. I just finished launching my new web app called Notecentric. It’s a note-taking application that’s online. So you can take class notes and access them wherever there’s internet access.

There’s more info at the official development blog, or you can skip that and just try out Notecentric.

Also, if you like Notecentric, please digg it.

Manga Review

Yoki Koto Kiku – Manga Review

Yoki Koto Kiku.jpg

Yoki Koto Kiku is a fairly new manga by the one and only Koge-Donbo. Koge-Donbo’s work is usually known for being super saccharine sweet. She did Di Gi Charat and Pita Ten, which are both totally awesome. Yoki Koto Kiku is somewhat of a departure for Koge-Donbo, but only a slight one.

Anime DVD Review

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Vol. 1 – Anime DVD Review

Jojos Bizarre Adventure Vol 1.jpg

As part of my “review more American Anime Time stuff” campaign, I contacted some companies and asked if they could send me anything to review. Super Techno Arts was kind enough to send a copy of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Vol. 1.

Coincidentally, back in the Playstation (1) days there was a fighting game called “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” that I used to have. I don’t really remember it that well, but it seemed pretty cool. Apparently the game was based on the same manga that this anime was based on.

The uber-high definition raw of Kemono Zume was released recently, and I had a chance to check it out. In my Summer 2006 anime preview, I figured this anime would resemble Blood+. My predictions been totally off this season…

Flag was actually one of the first anime to air for the Summer season. I didn’t see a raw until a while back, and the first episode just got subbed a few days ago. I really didn’t think much of the anime, but I only had a picture to base that opinion on (irony!).
