Densha Otoko   DX Special   01 Densha Otoko   DX Special   02 Densha Otoko   DX Special   03

-The Densha Otoko Deluxe Special aired yesterday. There were some funny moments (like the end of the episode, but I won’t spoil it), but it was actually overall quite serious, though also very corny/campy at certain points. At two hours, it was a bit long, but definitely worth watching if you’re a Densha Otoko fan, especially since they brought back what appeared to be the entire cast and played all the familiar songs from the soundtrack. They updated the OP with some new shots of Mina (courtesy of GONZO), which I’ve included above. On that note, the real Mina anime that GONZO is making now has a website. Yes, if you haven’t heard, Mina, in the same fake-title-getting-a-real-animation sense as Kujibiki Unbalance, is getting an anime coming in January.
-Maritan Concentration Drills is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. See Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C. There’s nothing like a loli spewing profusely profane Full Metal Jacket quotations to make my day. All under the guise of teaching unconventional English. :)
-Site’s been down a bit these past few days. Unfortunately, I can’t do anything about it except complain to Maestro or Dreamhost. Hopefully Dreamhost will improve their uptime in these coming days.

    Maritan looks like a real gem! I love the way each of the characters are designed based on the Marines (The Tiny, The Proud LOL), Army, Navy and JSDF. Just waiting for an Air Force character to pop up. And the links to the real things at the bottom of the webpage were also hilarous.
