Summing up Winter Season 2011/2012

Completely idiotic protagonists who get turned into badasses or Jesus’es, funny horror scenes, unfunny comedies, meaningless robots, drama girls, magical bullshit and finally ever so present: hot springs.

That sums up pretty much everything, but I wouldn’t miss the chance to bash the series separately. They soo deserve it!

Update on Winter 2012 Anime

Watching too many of these damn shows! Always trying to catch up, but then new episodes come out. *sigh*

And I have to admit, most of the series I considered ‘fine’ I’d describe with ‘meh’ now. Some of them I just struggle my way through, don’t ask me why, I’m mad and I might bite.

Anyhow, here’s what’s been going on:

So here’s a closer look at my shiny figurines:

Top Opening Sequences of Winter 2012

It took shorter than expected, the spots were well deserved and I had only a bit of doubt. This time I’ve included shows that I don’t watch, just to make sure I don’t miss something good!

Anime Collection Making: progress update

Just got the cases, I’ve ordered 20 Viva Elite Black DVD x2 14mm. I chose these because they don’t have any logos on the box, they’re completely clean. Also there are two slots for DVDs and finally, 14mm thickness (which is alike to PS3/X360 cases) so on display it’s easy to see each spine.

Above is the picture of my quick print&cut of the Samurai Champloo image in the case. Since my printer isn’t exactly the best and the photo was taken via phone, the quality isn’t too satisfying. Still, I’m honestly surprised how well it looks even though it was printed on ordinary paper!

Still, I want these to get more reflection so that means glossy paper, today I’ll hit printing shop so expect more images of my progress soon!

Finished making custom DVD cases for my future Anime collection!

So after seeing a display of custom PS3 cases for various games today, I got this idea to make my own collection of favourite Anime, starting with boxes that I made using PC game’s DVD template, some awesome wallpapers I’ve found + the official logos + eventually the text I added for english translation of the title. Now it’s all a matter of buying a bunch of empty game cases for PS3 or PC (can’t seem to find these..) and then going to a printing shop to get it done on a glossy paper and voilà!

Personally, I won’t feel bad about burning myself the DVDs with preferred subtitle group and quality, but if you consider yourself a rightful person who orders these ridiculously expensive Anime series online – custom cases are a way to go when your old ones get damaged or you simply want a new design for them. Anyhow, if you’re interested in making some of your own, here’s a link to the NeoGAF forums where I got the necessary templates from, plus all the information on how to print them.

I don’t mind sharing my own printable pictures, but atm I’ve got only preview of the boxes. I’ll be sure to provide what I’ve got so far though!

And here’s a preview boxes’ display made for my favourite series (atleast the ones I could find a fitting wallpaper for):
