(Important) Blog Update

Just posting a quickie to say that starting March 11th this blog won’t be accessible through the anisou.net URL. My wordpress domain mapping expires on that date and frankly I see no need to renew it for a basically dead blog. The anisou.net domain itself will also be expiring on April 10th so yeah, I’m just letting it die like that.

You’ll still be able to access all the posts and stuff from the rehikage.wordpress.com URL though.

Sorry about the inconvenience.

P.S. You can also take this as me saying I won’t bother posting here anymore as well. I don’t think npal or kawaii-nanami will either, so yeah, I’m basically just leaving it for archive’s sake.

Thanks for sticking around during the past 3 years or so m(_ _)m

Note: Remember you can still find us on the various links in the sidebar ^^

2011 in review – rehi edition.

Not really related, but super cute so whatever~

Being the ドS person I am, I just won’t let this blog rest in peace just yet :p

So what was 2011 like for rehi? I could very well just summarize it with “I DISCOVERED ABE MAO AND TOKYO GIRLS STYLE AWESOMENESS SO IT WAS AWESOME.” but well, let’s try a little bit harder than that lol

Persona 4 The Animation so far (episodes 1 & 2)


Persona 4 The Animation

It’s finally here!!! I’ve been waiting for a persona game adaptation since forever.  Although I wish they’d animate 3 first, since it’s probably easier to animate and insanely more epic, persona 4 adaptation is all fine with me.  I’m actually trying to forget Persona ~Trinity Soul~  was there to begin with, although, truth be told, I liked some of the characters there (mainly the girls).

As I’ve stated in another post, I’ve played persona 3 and 4 at least two times each.  That’s around 100+ hours of gaming for each (yes, I like to actually check the dialogue at least once, although I end up checking it a second time).  I could say a lot about the games but there’s little point in that.  Also, seeing as the anime is closely following the game (almost to a fault), extra information from the game will probably not be needed.

Anyway, I promised I’d blog this even if the world ended, so here it goes. Read more of this post

[Review] AKB48-related summer releases 2011

Summer is (almost) over, and yours may have been fun or boring, relaxing or stressful… but if you’re an AKB48 fan, sure there’s been at least one good thing about it: the massive amount of releases from them and their subunits and sister groups. From June to August, there was at least one AKB-related release per week (if we include DVDs / BDs and photobooks). As for the music releases, some of them (mostly singles) were really nice, others were not-so-good, but I took my time to listen to them all and now I’m going to share my impressions with you guys!

Tokyo Girls Style – when lolis perform mature songs better than most adults do.

So I wanted to write a post about 7!! (read as “seven oops”) really, but figured it’s too soon when they only have 2 singles out so far (i.e. keep your eyes out for them ’cause I’ll be mentioning them again if this blog still lives by then). Instead, I’ll be introducing the newest loli group that’s gotten me hooked (as if loving Matsui Jurina wasn’t enough to make me feel like a pedo), Tokyo Girls Style (Tokyo Joshiryu if you like your Japanese).

What’s so special about TGS you ask? Well, for the first time in my life, I can put a hand to my heart and say that I loved a girl group purely for their music. I’m dead serious here.

First half of 2011 in review: my top 10 Japanese albums of the year so far

So the first half of the year is gone already… time sure flies, doesn’t it? 2011 is turning out to be pretty nice in terms of Japanese music and there have been many albums I enjoyed, even if I’m the kind of person who prefers to listen to individual songs rather than albums as a whole. Are you curious to know which ones have been my favorites? Then, keep reading this post!
