For those that don't know, an anime summary blog (ASB) is when somebody blogs about a single episode of a show currently airing in Japan. There are of course variations on that theme but that's the general idea. I started my ASB in 2004 but I believe the practice started a year or two earlier. I don't remember what made me do it but people liked my point of view so I kept it going for a while. Eventually I put the summaries on hiatus as I entertained other passions.
Before the hiatus I was experimenting with video. A typical anime summary has two parts: screenshots and text. I wanted to go beyond the screenshots. I wanted video to accompany my entries. There's a lot you can get across with video that you can't with screenshots. I'm excited to finally be able to do this and you'll just have to keep this blog bookmarked to see what I have planned.
Special thanks to Arsen for telling me about Veoh. The video quality is alright but hosting it myself would be the best better. I might do that in the future, we'll see.
Shit Was So Cash
Ladies and gentleman, boy and girls: the Itano Circus is back in town. Macross Frontier is the latest in the long running series and it doesn't disappoint. Here's what I'm not going to do: say anything of substance about the show. That's not what I'm here for and there are HUNDREDS or other blogs you can go to for that. Instead, here's a clip from episode two that I put together. Watch it and decide for yourself. There are no subtitles and thus, no spoilers.
Clips from episode 2 of Macross Frontier.
