A Two-Feet Long Diary: Month 4

Today, we’ll talk about… more feet! This NarcissisticCube fellow recently subscribed to my YouTube channel, and is now the first subscriber to my YouTube channel since I started uploading videos of my feet! What I’m saying is, only one person wants to see videos of feet but I’M UPLOADING THEM ANYWAYS BECAUSE I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO POST ABOUT

FEET SO MOON»


Uchuu Kyoudai 6

Wow, what a great episode.

So heartwarming, especially with all the hair.

Afro and Spike

Flowing Hair

heh

also the real purpose of this post is to alert you guys to this:

Greatness!

May fifth has already happened, though. I wonder if this will get subtitled (it is real, by the way)


May the Fourth Be With You

Yes, I know. The pun doesn’t even make sense, because y’know, it’s actually May 6th right now and I’m lying to you guys about this post date. But guess what, O-New TRANSCENDS time and space, and I can post bad puns ANYWHERE, ANYTIME I want to. DEAL WITH IT

In this post which is not about anime nor manga and is instead about the life of the most boring person to ever walk the earth, I will talk about:

  1. May the Fourth
  2. How I’ve Only Watched the First Episode of Star Wars
  3. Dropbox Contests
  4. Cinco de Mayo
  5. Birthday Presents
  6. How I’m Not a Nerd Because I Don’t Play Video Games
  7. How I Learned to Love the Aniblog Tourney
  8. Flower Pictures
  9. Your Face
  10. Outdoor Track Meets
  11. Your Mother’s Face

Rest assured, I will touch upon every single one of those topics, and in that order!!

Yes, I will also touch your mother’s face»


What are Little Women Made Of?

Before you accuse me of depraved intentions, no, this is not a post dissecting the many features of the female form. Instead, it is a post about Hourou Musuko, femininity, masculinity, and gender roles in a society where a boy is not a boy and a girl is not a girl. Except when they are, of course. Now, you know that I can’t tackle serious issues like this, so I hope you guys will comment and actually discuss, y’know, real stuff, and not the shit I put into my posts. My newfound popularity (?) after a spectacular loss to Shameful Otaku Secret ought to promote this discussion. OUGHT TO.

That boy is actually SPINACH»


A Two-Feet Long Diary: Month 3

We’re still tweaking up our REAL Season Preview, so I won’t actually put a post here for a while!! At least you have a Season Preview to look forward to! Oh right, the season started two weeks ago…

Pre-International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

Well, I’ve been accepted into Sir Winston Churchill Secondary’s Pre-International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

What do?!?

On an unrelated note, do listen to my transcription of Gosick’s first OP, Destin Histoire! I think it’s quite nice. Here’s an embedded YouTube video:


A Two-Feet Long Diary: Month 2

Well, this is what one does when one is swamped with posts, isn’t it?! Even though now I haven’t been to school for five days (two-day weekend + three-day strike), I still feel busy as hell; perhaps exacerbated by my upcoming science fair project, due Friday, which I, uh, still haven’t started writing the report for. :|

So, here’s a post which has nothing to do with animanga (any manga, get it?) for once, by request of Flare: a post about feet!

(Well, he requested a post not about animanga, not a post about feet. Just to be clear on that.)

Anyways, that was my right foot, and here’s my left:

Not a right foot? Then it’s a wrong foot»


Single Hell, Single Hell, for Two Years (and Counting)

Yep, I’ve been single.

For two years now.

Exactly two years.

Apart from those few kids who wrote some posts last last summer.

And houraiguy, of course, but as he says:

“””O-New is a very unteamlike blog.”””

But it’s been two years of posting one post, every day, without pause. This is my 670th post.

It’s been tough, and I can’t hold on much longer.

So, we’re looking for YOU.

To write for O-NEW.

Black★Rock Shooter (TV) 2

Then MAKE IT DOUBLE, cause it’s time for MORE SORAMIMI! The funny thing is, these lyrics (thanks, Atashi!) AREN’T MISHEARD, because they’re IN JAPANESE! Thankfully, we’ve provided a timely (read: late) English translation for all you Australians out there seeking to drink a sip of a pint of beer or cheer or fuck this let’s go

(TL Note: ‘BURAKKU★ROKKU SHUUTAA (TV) EPISOODO NI DA, DOKO E ITTA NO? KIKOEMASU KA?’ means ‘I didn’t finish writing this Black★Rock Shooter (TV) Episode Two post… yet’ in English.)

(Post-Post Edit: Now I realize why this post was late. The episode wasn’t subbed when I published it. I hope you’ll forgive me. Without further ado, I present to you: this post.)

Gensou Mangekyou ~Shunsetsu Ihen no Shou~

WOAH WOAH WOAH

IS THIS A TOUHOU ANIME POST I SEE IN O-NEW

THE BLOG THAT IS
A) NOT ABOUT ANIME
B) NOT ABOUT GAMES
C) NOT ABOUT JAPAN
D) NOT ABOUT O-NEW
E) NOT ABOUT POSTS
F) NOT ABOUT FIVE-CHARACTER WORDS

IMPOSSIBLE?????

well it’s actually possible because ‘Touhou Anime’ has twelve characters.

last time I checked, twelve characters =/= five characters

even though only five characters actually matter

The other characters are antimatter»


Persona 4 OP: Dreamin’

Hey guys, Katawa Shoujo update. So, uh, [SPOILER ALERT] here’s a whole user-made flowchart about every possible route in the game. He’s done it so you don’t have to play! …The number of choices actually seems quite small, but I don’t play visual novels, so I wouldn’t know! =3=

Unlike THE LYRICS GOD ONLY KNOWS CHALLENGE, I actually know the lyrics of this OP, so it was harder to make it not make sense.

tl;dr: here are the lyrics to the persona 4 opening. it’s about what i dream when i sleep

yes, I dream about posting posts»


Königliche März ~ And Then the Sun Came Out

I was going to put this into yesterday’s post since it happened yesterday, but Horizon did not fit the mood. This piece does, somewhat, because it sounds hopeful, which is better than sounding silly. See, my grandma is dying, and my dad has flown back to be with her until she dies, which will be in less than a month. Königliche März means ‘Royal March’ – while it’s not a funeral march, if I were to die, I’d rather die with this music than with morbid, requiem-esque sounds.

“’twas a downcast day
our troops’ morale was suff’ring
then, behold! yonder,
the sun came out, and our path
illuminated”

I’m anti-capitalist»

Steins;Gate Half Season Review 2

Meet The Ling (for lack of a better title)

[Trumpet fanfare plays]

I haven’t posted in a long time, so this is really awkward.

In any case, I have randomly decided to write a quick (which is pretty much going to doom me to take at least 2 hours to write this post !!@#$) post on something random!

When I say “something random”, that means I don’t know what the topic is. Yet.

[Brief intermission.  Hourai gets something for brainstorming (coffee milk).]

Because Mushz is doing anime/manga posts mainly, it looks like I will have to do gaming.

NO-IT’S-NOT-BLACK-OPS-GET-OFF-ME-YOU-TROLLS-AND-KEEP-THOSE-FLAMETHROWERS-AWAY-FROM-ME

So, I’ve not been posting here for like, what, a century, so for no good reason, I present a random post on Starcraft 2.

Of course, this is about the ladder and multiplayer. In single player, Terran is overpowered. They have cheats, for example. Also, they have Odin.

Alright: We present: Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty: Unit Overview: Zerg: The Zergling. If you have any ideas on how to stuff some more colons into the previous sentence, keep them to yourself. I don’t need them.


I drew this with GIMP. Time taken: ~1 hour. I KNOW IT’S CRAPPY SHUT UP ABOUT THAT I’M NOT A PROFESSIONAL BLARGH.

The zergling is a little speedy cockroach-like thing the approximately length of a car. Since, however, Starcraft 2 is somewhat out of scale (I mean come on a cattlebruiser is only about the size of 16 marines), they’re really small little buggers that are the Tier 1 unit for good ‘ol Zerg.

Appearance

A bug. Cockroach-like. Four-legged, like every other ground unit of the Zerg. Usually brown.

Tactical Applications

Zerglings/lings are pretty fast, cheap, and easy to mass produce. Investing in the upgrade “Metabolic Boost” gives them wings (similar effect as Red Bull; give you wings, but you still can’t fly) and ridonculous speed, making it easier to form surrounds, etc. “Adrenal Glands” grants 20% faster attack speed (only accessable at Hive tech), making Zerglings less like cannon fodder.

Speedlings (lings with Metabolic) make excellent scouts (base scouting), harassment units (pretty good against harvesters), and provide a quickly-reinforcing unit that can quickly take the opportunity to harass a mineral line when the opposing army is out of position and just as quickly retreat with minimal losses.

They are an excellent choice to hold the Xel’naga watch towers with.

With the Burrow upgrade, you can place one at potential expansion site to deny enemies the opportunity to expand. They can aslo be used when burrowed as minor scouts.

Weaknesses

Zerglings only have 35 hp and no base armour, making them incredibly squishy bastards. As such, many units counter them well. With the Roach and the Hydra, the main three Zerg ground units are all somewhat countered by splash damage.

Zerglings are weak against Hellions, which have that extra damage to Light units in addition to the Infernal Pre-Igniter upgrade (+10 damage to Light units) and splash damage in a line. Note that Zerglings can easily overwhelm any lone “counter” unit if said unit is not properly supported.

Zerglings are also quickly roasted to death by Colossi, which are somewhat vulnerable like the Hellions as well.

Roaches fare fairly well against them, having that base armour of 1.

Infestors can use the spell “Fungal Growth” to reduce Zerglings to 1-2 health while immobilizing them for four seconds, allowing ranged units to wreck havok on the lings.

Since lings are melee units, Sentry Forcefields can trap lings while letting Stalkers and Colossi have fun picking away at the trapped units.

A Zealot can fight off around four lings (depends on upgrades and use of proper micro). While lings can decimate lone Marines, grouped-up gunmen can mow down lings with ease, denying them surrounds and also gaining the use of Stimpacks (temporary bonus attack speed and movement speed with the use of drugs, costing health) and Combat Shield (+10 health).

Strengths

Lings can easily kill off any isolated units, especially if they are able to surround said unit. A fair amount of lings tend to die while doing this, but the cost is usually worth it.

Lings are the most common Zerg counter to Immortals, other than Mutalisks and Brood Lords. They are not considered Armoured, reducing damage taken from the Immortals, their attacks are don’t do enough damage to be affected by Hardened Shields, and they murder them with ease upon achieving that all-important surround.

Lings can also easily wreck Thors, Siege Tanks, and Colossi. Note that the Ultralisk is not easily killed by Zerglings, having the ability to obtain ridiculous amounts of armour (up to 6 armour, almost completely nullifying unupgraded ling attacks), a melee attack, 400 health, and splash damage.

Two lings are produced by one larva for 50 minerals. The fact that it is extremely easy to mass produce these buggers is offset by the fact that they are, again, squishy little bastards, with 35 health (this is the least amount of health held by any unit in the game, except for the Changeling).

Notes

Zerglings may morph into Banelings after the Baneling Nest has morphed in. This will cost 25 minerals and 25 vespene gas per Zergling morphed and takes about 17 seconds.

Zerglings are commonly used in the omnipresent Zerg Rush, a process wherein the Zerg player goes “all-in”, screwing his mining over to try to end the game as early as possible. The Zerg player builds a Spawning Pool (the pre-requisite building required to mutate Zerglings) as early as possible, hoping to overwhelm the opponent with 6 or more lings before the opponent has a sizable defense force/any defense at all. The Zerg Rush is also referred to as the 6 Pool, 6 supply being the earliest possible time that Zerg may build anything (the Pool).

People will often be pissed as !#$% after being beaten by the 6 Pool.

6 Pool-ers may sometimes be bad sports and swear at people who manage to defeat them (especially through an unothodox method), despite the 6 Pooler opening up with the Zerg Rush.

Successful Zerg rushers have been known to follow up their victory with “KEKEKE” (more KE’s can be added).


THE LYRICS GOD ONLY KNOWS CHALLENGE

Seeing that I DON’T HAVE A POST, I NEED A POST IN FOURTY MINUTES, I’m STILL WATCHING EPISODE ONES OF SOME ANIMU EVEN THOUGH MY SEASON PREVIEW IS STILL IN THE DRYER, and I JUST DOWNLOADED TWGOK S2 EPISODE ONE, I decide to TAKE THIS CHALLENGE ON!

For You (TV Size) Transcription

Well. That took a long time! Notice how the URL insinuates that I wrote this post on March 27th, 2011. This is in fact untrue – I wrote this post on May 2nd, 2012, exactly a year and a month and a week minus two days after this post’s purported post date.

Why did I choose to post it now? Well, if you’ll remember (you won’t), this week is HST Week, the week during Spring Break last year (2011) where I decided to only write Half Season Reviews and transcriptions/compositions for an entire week. Obviously, it didn’t work, which is why I’ve only written this post now. It’s oddly fitting how almost exactly a year and a month has passed, isn’t it? And my birthday is today…

It’s just for me!»

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Half Season Review


You don’t shoot guns like this.

I originally didn’t want to watch this, owing to me shying away from hype and maybe this would suck.

I was wrong.

Here’s a really late post, no spoilers (well, sorta), no summary, no nothing – this is a show that you’ve got to watch. It’s only 12 episodes long, anyways.

Except for the shooting guns part, that sorta sucked»
