So…long time no post? Tee hee hee….

Yeah terribly sorry about that. Had a mid-life crisis, identity crisis, fandom crisis and things went to shit pretty quickly. That said, I haven’t given up the fandom review game quite yet nor this blog…well not completely.

I am going to start yet another wordpress blog about fandom but this will be more…I don’t know, informed. There will be editorial pieces, still reviews, tutorials and other shit I think is fun. In the meantime, I am going to clean up things here and treat it as an archive. Sorry but there will be no more new posts here aside from this one.

Things have changed and frankly, the Mind of Mitzumi has died. RIP my friend.

Now that parting is being a sweet sorrow all on it’s lonesome, I want you to get hype about The Fandom Raven

….okay not the best title but I swear it will grow on you.

Anyway, the Fandom Raven is a blog about, well fandom. The news, issues, darlings, and villians. Think geekosystem and The Mary Sue but hell of a lot smaller and more focused [and less product placement though I wouldn't mind being paid for such things]. There will be tutorials on the things that matter, reviews on the shows and software that matter, and editorials on…well you get the point by now.

I am still writing in my lazy casual style and am welcoming guess writers but for now it’s just me.

So bookmark The Fandom Raven and see you guys soon! :)

Okay, I am keeping the site as a archive. You can find business as usual continuing on Blogger. Keep an eye out since I am releasing a new liveblog today and a first impressions review tomorrow. See you all later. :)

Moving On

HorribleSubs-Free-02-480p.mkv_snapshot_11.24_2013.07.11_01.12.35_thumb.pngAfter much consternation [and mostly procrastination], I will be moving Mind of Mitzumi over to Blogger. I do like the wordpress platform but it is really not helpful in terms of growing and I like a bit more freedom to do as I wish like adding javascript, customizing my theme and placing my own ads without paying so much out of pocket. Also I will be able to post more via my phone since apparently wordpress does not like my data plan.

So until Sunday, you will be able to check my posts and the like BUT any and all new posts will be published now on Blogger.

It is still the Mind of Mitzumi so drop me a line and check out my new digs [once I get everything set up of course].

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club Episode 2 [Liveblogging]

free livebloggingHi! Mitzumi here and welcome to my liveblog on Mind of Mitzumi. To kick things off I am going to be giving live notes on my reactions and impressions on Free! also known as the ‘swimming anime’. I am going to be doing this for all episodes and once the anime is over, I am going to give a full review and Mitzumi Scale rate it. I need not say that there will be SPOILERS andUNMARKED SPOILERS at that along with pretty bad language [I say fuck and asdfgsa a lot]. If you do not wish to have the anime spoiled, I suggest you skip every post marked as a liveblog and wait for my review. Also if you want to check out my previous liveblogs [some not related to anime], hop over to my tumblr and check out the liveblogging tag.

Vassalord OVA [Review]

[aarinfantasy]_Vassalord_OVA_[EDAC031B].avi_snapshot_00.43_[2013.07.10_20.33.24]

I was going to review the manga and the OVA of Vassalord but since the scantalation groups I keep up with that does it is all but dead, I figure I might as well get the OVA out the way. Besides that, this is a wonderful addition to canon that expands on Rayflo and Charley’s story. It’s action packed but also has it’s moments. Find out what they are in this review.

 

 

We Love Short Shorts! [Review]

[m.3.3.w] Gakkatsu! - 01 [4F0EF969].mkv_snapshot_00.09_[2013.07.08_21.39.07][HorribleSubs] Yurumate3Dei - 01 [480p].mkv_snapshot_00.38_[2013.07.08_22.14.13]Here we are again with another double review. This time it’s a short episode anime special. Two anime with episodes under 5 minutes: Gakkatsu and Yurumates. Both are slice of life from different lives. And both are pretty funny but is that enough to make up for the small episode running time? Find out in this review!

Aiura [Review]

[HorribleSubs] AIURA - 01 [480p].mkv_snapshot_03.58_[2013.07.05_20.09.43]There seems to be a trend of short slice of life anime as of late and even more on ‘cute girls doing cute things’. Aiura is a summation of that, focusing on a three girl band who seem to have nothing more in common other than that they attend the same school. Is there more to be had or is it really just a background anime fodder for the distracted? Check out my review and find out.

Yuyushiki [Review]

[HorribleSubs] YUYUSHIKI - 01 [480p].mkv_snapshot_03.16_[2013.07.03_13.06.11]The latest crop of slice of life has continued the legacy the likes of YuruYuri and Hidamari Sketch have left: cute girls doing cute things while making vaguely lesbian motions at each other. It’s a great legacy and I enjoy it immensely but sometimes it gets tiring. I’m not sure of Yuyushiki keeps the excitement but it is funny and funny always gets points in my world. Hit the jump to check out my review.
