Today’s Nico Nico: CNNwwwww

The famous Bad Apple!! monochrome PV made it to CNN, but the best thing was that the anchor claimed it was made by stop motion photography. Apparently, the original PV was made using a 3D software because you wouldn’t get antialiasing and detailed rotations otherwise. The guy who made the stop motion version below just […]

Nadeko Snake DVD was released today, and the limited edition comes with Renai Circulation CD. Of course, the full version of the music was uploaded to NicoNico, and it is now ranking #1. The song is very cute and addictive. The middle part of the song where Nadeko whispers “Ko-i-su-ru O-to-me-wa…” gave me goose bumps. […]

○○ is traing…

A new meme is emerging from Fight! Ippatsu Juuden-chan’s ED. It’s called the ○○がトレーニング (lit: xxx is training) series. The meme itself doesn’t have anything much, really. Just some scantily-clad girls running on treadmills. (Read: a recipe for success!) Of course, when a meme is born, the Touhou girls are the first to be mashed […]

Japanese(?) I Learned from Nico Nico Douga #2

ヘブン状態 (heaven joutai) In a female-oriented (read: fujoshi-bait) DS game called “DUEL LOVE,” you can use the touch pen to, err, “wipe the sweat” of the bishounen below to sway his mood like this: angry –> annoyed –> normal –> happy –> embarassed –> HEAVEN JOUTAI!!

By the way, the original video was removed already thanks to Kings Record. This one will be gone in a few hours as well I […]

To Aru Majutsu No Index, The Musical

One creative MAD maker at Nico Nico Douga took advantage of well-animated lip movement of Index in the first episode of TAMNI in the most delightful way. He/She had Index sing “Yume Wa Owaranai,” while still hanging on Touma’s balcony. 【ニコニコ動画】インデックスさんがテイルズオブファンタジアOP曲を熱唱し始めました。 The MAD is brilliant for its perfect lip-synch. It’s also quite funny. I loled at […]

Too-giza-detailed-to-deliver Anime Impression

Dominating the Nico Nico ranking chart this week (before it was taken out) was clips of “Too-giza-to-deliver Anime Impression Championship” (ギザ細かすぎて伝わらないアニメものまね選手権), a competition in which people do live-action reenactment of anime scenes. The show was hosted by Shoko-tan, Otaking, and a talking pink cat. I seriously recommend the clips. They are so hilarious just for […]
