2017-04-22 – Yesterday was crap. Let’s JAM a little for the weekend!

I try to add an anime episode every day on my you tube channel (see About Me page for link,) so for the weekend I managed to add a couple more Violinist of Hameln episodes on my unlisted playlist. (See the one previous post for the playlist.)

However, to try to be a little less… unhappy about what has happened (my last post details this,) here’s some weekend jam sessions for my viewers and readers.

Machine Robo Rescue – ED

(I loathe this anime. But I love the ending music. It’s exceptional for something this trying.)

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor – OP

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor – ED

And something a little nerdy…

Hey, Hey 16k

If anyone has any suggestions for music, let me know. If you can tell from the crumb of playlists I am working on, I prefer aggressive music, cheerful stuff, really melodic pieces, hell, even though I can get really serious at times (like we all can,) I’m usually a pretty cheerful Blue Gunner. (He’s talking about himself in the third person! RUUUUN!) So let me know if there is anything that is just awesome to you.

Thank you all for the feedback I have been getting as well, here and on my channel.

Continue to have a great weekend and…




2017-04-21 – Friday, not-so-fun-day.

Well hell, this is a bad day.

Turns out I got two strikes on my you tube channel for having the Macross II vids up there. Things don’t look good. I am not happy about this. So, since I can’t have those videos up anymore… he, he, he…



This is the best I can do for right now. … Okay it’s a pretty GOOD best I can do, but there ya go.

I wish I could say more in this post, but I am not in a good mood over various things. I’ll see what I can do as I can.

Everybody have a great weekend, and enjoy~!


2017-04-14 – The beginning of Manga Madness! Plus silly!

Hameln ch001 006

To continue with the Violinist of Hameln anime is the manga. Thanks to the translators for this one. It’s… well see for yourself.

Violinist Of Hameln MANGA –


But with this we have a little more silly for today. First something topical considering a certain airlines’ penchant for horrible service.

And finally well, I have to admit, I do occasionally watch Let’s Play videos and Long Play videos, as well as sometimes read a Long Play thread from the lparchive. With that said, sometimes Let’s Play people on You Tube are not… well, practiced in their choice of time kill. That’s where retsupurae comes in. They have a lot of fun with some of these Let’s Play individuals to many times hilarious results. I’m including them here because they deserve a lot more views then what they have here, so… let the hilarity begin!

Retsupurae channel…



Pinball Wizards’ Growing Pains


When You’re Here, You’re Family

Bro-Op LP

Have a great weekend everybody and as always… enjoy~!


2017-04-10 – More crunchy goodness! Violinist of Hameln, Gamestop and Battletech…

Quick little Monday update.

First off is I was able to put more Violinist of Hameln anime episodes up for this coming week. The second episode in the series begins doing the opening and ending theme music I believe, so there’s that awesomeness. I really like that OP and ED music.

Second is I needed to make yet another playlist, this one just for “OTHER” stuff. Hurr. Anyway watching some old videos with a friend, I had to give some credit to a guy I kind of like most of the time (but not all of the time as he freaking likes the Star Wars prequels if you can believe that.) He’s worth a look from time to time for various reasons. He goes by the name Razorfist, and is definitely not for everybody, but again he’s worth a look here and there.

Gamestop rant…

Battletech primer…

Mechwarrior Online primer?

Clearly with my tiny fledgling booru (image board, link is in my About info) with Battletech as the main theme (among others) Battletech / Mechwarrior is a big influence in my life. Razorfist does a decent job with this and is worth a look for newbies.

Also Gamestop sucks swollen infected testicles.



2017-04-08 – The next You Tube playlist, Violinist of Hameln!

I had a crappy day yesterday. Pretty much anything that could go wrong, did. I weathered through it, an well, whatever. I am here to announce the next you tube playlist.

The Violinist of Hamelin!


(I have no idea if the pic above was for the TV series or the OST. Forgive me for being in a rush this morning.)

Aaaah, I remember a bit of this one. It’s split between a television ruin and one OVA. I’ll deal with the OVA on another post, but for today, I am announcing the addition of these videos of the TV series to my channel. The beginning of the playlist is below.

As for my assessment: – It’s a rather… dark show. The opening music is extremely catchy (one of my favorites) and belies the rest of the show’s tone. I also like the ending theme as well. (I think the first episode forgoes the opening and ending themes and pushes the viewer into the introductory part of the story.) Anyway for a dark show, it’s worth a run. Because of a busy schedule I only managed to get the first episode up (subtitle issues, and again, to those who make these fan-subs, I am grateful,) but I will continue this series in a timely manner.

I hope you all enjoy.

Those of you paying attention to my last series, Figure 17 on my You Tube channel also might have noticed I got the final episode up in my playlist. (It’s an unlisted one to help protect these longer. It’s the best I can do for now.) If you haven’t tried that show, I suggest giving it a run. It also has some pretty great music in places.

Other than having one of the most unpleasant days in a long time yesterday, there’s not much else to report. I’ll let you know if something comes up.

Have a continued great weekend and enjoy~!


2017-04-06 – Thursday Special! Votoms; etc…


Okay! I have a busy few days up ahead so I thought I should do my Friday post a little early.

Those of you know a little of my recent history know that I started my You Tube channel pretty much as a combination of OCD and an experiment. I wanted to see if I could complete that great old 80’s anime Dougram since most of it was already online, and I wanted to see what else I could do. I don’t do all of this for any money, just the love of the game, or love of the hobbies I partake in, as it were.

Well as noted I got hit a few times in my channel by… *ahem* unhappy individuals. One series I had put up early in my channel’s existence was Armor Trooper Votoms. Considering it was kind of similar to Dougram I had to try it. To be candid I was literally being exposed to watching it as I was putting it online. Anyhow those videos got blocks- the entire series! Ugh. I was not happy about that, but I couldn’t do much at the time.

Now I can. Ha-ha.

Votoms – 01-25


Votoms – pt2 (26+) – FINAL


(G_P) Votoms (Remastered) 49(x264)(C5FFAFB7).mkv_snapshot_18.43_[2016.10.22_02.45.44]

Above: – Oddly this is the only screen cap I have of Votoms for the entire run I went through with it. 

With that I have another series. This one was suggested to me a little while ago and I figured why not. I did not put this on my channel because hell if I know if I am going to get flagged. It’s Himouto! Umaru-chan. It’s about this supposedly freaking perfect chick who really is a lazy, gaming, snack food obsessed, slovenly, bossy layabout. … Yeah that’s about it.

My opinion? The first episode is pretty good. I enjoyed it. Then it falls down the stairs like an arthritic grandma tripping on an errant Lego. I grew to kind of loathe this show. It’s summed up in one word: insipid. I cared NOTHING about ANYONE by the end of this show- wait, who am I kidding? I stopped caring less than halfway through. However, others did the awesome job of translating this, and well, I had this stashed away so, if you’re wanting some slice of fictional life (how does Umaru stay athletic and thin after eating junk food all day? Who knows?) here it is.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 01 [480p].mkv_snapshot_06.50_[2017.03.12_09.19.59]

Himouto! Umaru-chan – ALL


And the OVA…

Himouto! Umaru-chan – OVA 01



Above: – She’s wearing a hamster hoodie in her chibi form. 

Hell, the only thing I can identify with Umaru with is the fact if given the opportunity I would drink diet coke through an IV drip if I could. Past that… ugh. Still the first episode is worth a watch.

Remember if you want to get these files quicker and easier to use J-Downloader from one of my previous posts. (Thanks again broski for your own blog post that brought me to that utility. Yay!)


I know I haven’t had a lot of time, but I intend on adding more favorites for the hell of it on my playlists in case anyone is interested. (Who knows?) Also any anime additions to my channel will be published here because hurr, reasons and raisins.

Everybody have a great weekend and let me know what you think!



2017-03-31 – The Hurps and Derps of March. Also Crusher Joe anime.


Some of you know I put the Crusher Joe OVAs on my you tube channel. If you haven’t seen them, check them out as they are pretty neat even for being as old as they are. However there was one problem. There is a third animation for that series, a movie. Problem: – You Tube didn’t want me to upload that video. Hurr.

Someone asked for this a couple of days ago and as part of my efforts to deal with the severe limitations of You Tube, I present not only the Crusher Joe movie, but the downloads for the OVAs in case anybody is interested.


Those of you who love the game Battletech and its history will recognize some familiar machines from this series.


With that done, if those who are interested, I do have some playlists I deal with on my channel that deals with some noteworthy music in the anime and video game realms, and also a playlist that deals with silly stuff. None of them are particularly huge at this point, but there might be something interesting for those that are interested to look at.

Some recent examples…

Vader Sessions 1 –




Sonichu 101 lecture


Darth Vader outfit details – red letter media


Based on the popularity and age of some of these videos, it’s up in the air if those that view my blog have already seen them, but for those that haven’t give them a try.

…and don’t get me started on what I know about CWC. *shivers* It’s a long story.

Thanks for all that liked my posts recently and follow my blog.

Have a great weekend everybody and enjoy!


2017-03-27 – You Tube channel update…


Well for now I am trying to stem the tide of having my videos being reported and either silenced or taken off of you tube. Hurr. I am not happy about this. So today is a quick post (since I usually do my posts on Friday because reasons.)

Figure 17 playlist (videos added as I have time…)

I like this series. However some warnings and thoughts about it…

One: – It gets… oddly scary at times. The danger seems more intense than the vast majority of anime I have seen. (Just my opinion about how good I think it is.)

Two: – There is a lot of quiet moments. Get ready for that.

Three: – It has some great music. I frickin’ love it.

Four: – Some great background art.

Five: – The episodes are double the size of your standard half hour anime. Be ready for that.

I hope many of you like this show and have a great week, and hope to make a post on Friday!



2017-03-24 – Sunday Bloody… Friday?! Part 5

Fist of the North Star (HnK) - S01 A02 E055 - Rei, Are You on Your Way to Death.mp4_snapshot_17.21_[2017.03.16_08.02.47]

If you read my previous two posts for today, you can kind of tell things have been horrible lately. However, quick post for today, more Fist of the North Star goodness!

Legend of the Dark King (Fist of the North Star)



  1. Fist of the Blue Sky (Japanese Dub – 480p)


Fist of the North Star The Movie (both versions)



Other stuff…



I really don’t have much else to say right now, so…



2017-03-24 – Problem: – Technical issues, aka, Toshiba sucks!

I had to make this a separate post because of what I am dealing with.

From last I read, there is about 95+ million unemployed right now in the old US where I am based. The job market is horrendous and the economy, regardless of how stocks are doing, is not good. And even if whatever new president makes positive changes, like previous administrations before, will probably take a couple of years before the real effect of positive or negative effects to be felt.

In short, economy sucks and it has hit me hard over the recent years.

I whined about all of that to say this: my computer is pretty much dying on me and there is absolutely no funding to deal with it right now. I don’t know how much longer I have (yes I am pursuing every method possible to get another computer other than begging like a you tube starlet,) but I will do the best I can with what time I have left.

My warning to anybody reading this, stay the ever loving hell away from Toshiba computers.

I have bought three of them over the years, and none of them have operated well. I am running on my last comp. I had two Toshibas purchased from back in the day when I didn’t know how bad they were, and both died on the same day. I had to do some… work, to salvage one computer by cannibalizing both of them. This is not fun.

And now this computer is starting to die on me as well.

I have a HUGE list of complaints from the computers I have dealt with from Toshiba. Out of date components, factory-damaged components, overheating problems, just a metric fudge-ton of other problems, and after doing some research I have found others pretty much hate this company. I am no different. My computer is being held together by duck tape, prayer and I think possibly one or two New Types smuggled in from an alternate Gundam universe. If you have ever played the old Wizardry games and had to resurrect a dead player character, imagine that as some of the problems I deal with on a daily basis. I lose anywhere from an hour to 4-5 hours dealing with this freaking nonsense, and I hate to say it’s only getting worse. I have had to borrow a friend’s computer at times to deal with some issues my old rust bucket can’t.

Whine, whine, whine, my comp is a pain and there’s no possibility for a replacement anytime soon. It’s rough, but whadda ya gonna do?

I will say again, Toshiba has done nothing good for me over the years. Just the name makes me tense up at this point.

I’ll let you all know any updates since well, I am into so many things online. Thank you for your patients. If you want to know, this is one of the reasons I can only upload one you tube video a day (in batches as you may have noticed) instead of two a day. And as of my previous post and the troubles I am dealing with you tube, well, you know things are not exactly fine.

I hope to share more of my goodies and may you all have a great weekend.

I have one more legitimate post to make. (Can’t end Sunday Bloody, Friday on a sour note, can we?)
