Top 5 Op's of 2010

Counterpart to the previous post, my ranking of top opening sequences of this year. I try and avoid giving a show more than one place (or this would be a very K-ON!! heavy list). Ranking is as follows:

5) Oshichau_Zo (Omamori_Himari)

Kind of making up do up the numbers, but does at least have a catgirl Himari getting her clothes ripped off and plenty of panty shots.

4) Ready go! (Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi)

Mainly because I like the SD characters and were no other shows at the time whose OP I liked much

3) Highschool of the dead (Highschool of the dead)

Good guitar riffs, more panty shots
2) Mittsu Kazoete Daishuugou! (Mitsudomoe)

Sums up the show perfectly, catchy and reminiscent of the Minami-ke OP

1) Hikarai no Senritsu (Sora no Woto)
Great visuals, recalling Elfen Lied and the work of Gustav Klimt. Stunning

Top 5 ED's of 2010

This is my take on the best ending songs from this year, based purely on personal preference and shows have seen.

5) More-More Lovers (MM!)

I like the outfits  (asymmetric socks and gloves FTW!) and the dance moves are kind of goofy but fun

4) Aoi Hana (Seitokai Yakuindomo)

 Bonus point for having no real connection to the main show, however biggest draw for me is the catchy chants

3) Baka go Home (Baka to Test to Shōkanjū)

My favourite j-punk band put out a blinder here, plus the images make it look like a yaoi show

2) Pinky Jones (Yosuga no Sora)

SD characters, the shows main plot points played around with and nonsensical lyrics. What's not to like?

1) No, Thank you (K-ON!!)

Best show of the year for music, slightly has the edge over Listen as the sounds is stronger and better visuals (though the girls outfits in Listen are cuter IMO)

Link round up 2

Cuteness ahoy! First a nice yuri K-ON pic (with neodroids), then one of Minami-ke's Mako-chan

A very surreal fan poster for the K-ON movie,

Ui's dirty little secret, 
Think I've found my new favourite broken manga,

and finally, the video highlight of the week (surely am not the only one getting vibes of Lucky Star's Akira?)

Oremo bad ends

Interested to read this tonight and how Oremo is the latest (after Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora) to have alternative end. I wonder if this is an attempt by the industry to make the viewers experience more interactive/game like? Also, was this all kicked off by Clannad's another world chapters, or were there other, earlier shows to have alternate ends?

Anyway, if there is to be a 'bad end' to oremo this is what I'd like to see happen-

Option 1: Kyousuke and Kirino begin an incestuous relationship, only to get discovered and kicked out on the street. Kirino turns to whoring to support her onii-chan and his new crack habit, only for him to OD and her to commit suicide

Option 2: Kyousuke gets together with your choice of Kirino's friends, only for her to go totally stabby and murder the pair with a cleaver borrowed from Rena Ryuugu.

Option 3: Kyousuke and Kirino get together, only for her to fall pregnant. the baby has 6 toes on each foot.

Top 5 Imouto's

Party inspored by this (NSFW), here is my list of best imouto characters

Dishonorable mentions: Kirinio from Ore no Imouto and Sora from Yosuga no Sora are joint worst IMO. Both are clingy, jealous, spiteful little bitches with no redeeming featues . 

5) Ui (K-ON!)
Plus points: domestic goddess
Downside: potential yandere

4) Minato (Akane-iro ni Soma Saka)
Plus points: well endowed, looks good in tennis outfit. Bonus for not actually related so technically legal
Downside: knows where the porn's hidden

3) Miya (Amagami SS)
Plus points: lots of friends can hit on, potentially into yuri
Downside: addicted to meat buns

2) Chika (Ichigo Mashimaro)
Plus points: willing to lend you cash for smokes
Downside: otherwise unremarkable

1) Mei (Clannad)
Plus points: plays cupid, highly suggestible

Downside: dangerous use of 'onii-chan' in public

First winter preview

 At Seaslugs. Mitsudomoe Zouryouchuu a definite watch. Of the others only Hourou Musuko and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? might be ok but not holding my breath

Link round up

A collection of random goodness found in various corners of the Internet:
First a couple of K-ON images- Mugi's secret footage, and a new member of the light music club, and a very NSFW one of Azu-nyan,

Worst bootleg figure ever

Then how the  K-ON BD upgrade had a downside for one member,
Squid girl is unhappy with cheap imitators cosplaying her look,

Top of my Christmas list, a Kuroko hugging pillow,

The latest weird fetish to hit Japan,

Another cute pic,

A interesting comparison of how art styles have changed over the years,

and finally, the most epic thanksgiving meal ever

Random nugget

(original) Not sure what I find funnier, Mugi's expression, Mio's calmness or Ritsu's camera angle
