On behalf of the Katawa Shoujo Cast
Hi beloved listeners of our KS Podcast,<br /><br />Our last post was back in 2013, and even in 2015 (nearing the beginning of 2016) people are still listening to our podcast. We appreciate all the kind words you guys have given us. Though we are very sorry we never continued with this podcast. We hope you guys enjoyed it. I, myself enjoyed making it as well as listening back on it from time to time. It's been 4 years since it was first made. That was my sophomore year of high school. Now I'm in college. Actually all of cast members are in college. Ben, the founder himself is a Junior in college. Kevin has just started up college as well.<br /><br />But back to the point, we thank you for listening to us. And we apologize but we will probably never release another episode. Thank you!<br /><br />Happy holidays, enjoy your lives. Continue watching anime, Haikyuu is great.<br /><br />Before I go here are my recommendations to watch if you guys even still care<br /><br />1. Code Geass<br />2. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann<br />3. Angel Beats<br />4. Full Metal Alchemist (brotherhood as well)<br />5. Haikyuu<br />6. Kuroko no Basket<br />7. Toradora<br />8. Steins; Gate<br />9.No game no life<br />10. Shigatsu wa kimi no uso(Your lie in April)<br /><br />So without further ado, good night and thanks for everything<br /><br />Azunyan :3

I am sorry that I have not been posting any spotlights recently. A lot of things have been on my plate and I could not find the time for it. Midterms were this week, had some girl problems (I know right? lolol girls), and of course the infamous Steam Sales&nbsp;struck again.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">But you aren't here for my life problems. I mean come on, really life? Who needs that when you have anime and waifus!!! This week's anime is a ongoing one(well its newest season is ongoing at least). The reason why I chose this one is because I at first did not know of it and was introduced by a friend. So I thought, <i>why not show it to you guys?&nbsp;</i>I hope you will enjoy and&nbsp;appreciate this anime series.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"></span><br /><a name='more'></a><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Before I tell you the name of this anime, I think I should warn you for the incoming lovey-dovey-feely-feels. This anime really got me thinking, and made me WANT to get a girlfriend and be able to do this (by the way, done). The series also has a really unique style to it. It is unlike any other slice of life series that are completely random or&nbsp;battle&nbsp;focused. This has a actual plot, and no, not fanservice "plot". Plot that has a story line to it.&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 13px;">iWishToHugYou (David) and Vespers (Fernando)from the podcast love this anime, so hopefully so will you.</span></span><br /><span style="line-height: 13px;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></span><span style="line-height: 13px;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></span><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Maybe you might already be watching it...</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: blue; font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;">Bakuman!</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://cdn.ifanboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/bakuman02.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://cdn.ifanboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/bakuman02.jpg" width="280" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">When Bakuman first came out, it was completely new to me. It had a completely different way of grabbing your attention. Bakuman is about two guys who are very,very different.&nbsp;<span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;">Akito Takagi is a top notch student and have any job, while&nbsp;</span><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;">Moritaka Mashiro is a average kid that has a knack for drawing and a little crush on a Azuki Miho. Takagi wants to become a manga artist, but just can't draw the pictures the way he wants them to be. That's where Mashiro comes in. The two join together and this.... this becomes their dream.</span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;"><br /></span></span></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://moesucks.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/bakuman1004.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;"><img border="0" height="225" src="http://moesucks.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/bakuman1004.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: small;">But thats not the only Dream!</span></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br />Mashiro, as I have told you before, has a crush on Miho. He has yet to tell her. Takagi does this for him and soon enough THEY START DATING!!!!. (lol no, it doesnt work like that even in anime). Miho reveals that she likes him too but just doesn't know what to do. Mashiro, like the main character idiot that he is, tells her that he wants to become a Manga Artist and make Anime. And Miho replies with her dream of becoming a voice actor.&nbsp;</span><br /><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Mashiro: Well.... How about... You marry me when our dreams come true?!</span></div><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Miho: YES!&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">It was right then, I and many others were drawn into this anime about people making anime. (Animeception, so meta!)</span></div><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Synopsis:&nbsp;<span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;">Moritaka Mashiro and Akito Takagi are pretty much foils of each other. Mashiro, an average 9th grade student but talented artist, and Takagi, an overall advanced 9th grader and aspiring writer. After great convincing, Takagi convinces Mashiro to join him in becoming the greatest mangakas Japan has ever seen. Takagi, with his gift of writing, hopes to become a successful mangaka, and Mashiro, with his gift of art, hopes to marry the girl of his dreams, Azuki Miho.&nbsp;</span></span><br />Genre: Slice of Life (in a way), Comedy, Romance, School (just alittle bit)</div><div>Episodes: 3 Seasons (3rd in ongoing. each season has around 24-25 episodes)</div><div>Rating<span style="font-family: inherit;">:<span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">√-i&nbsp;</span><br style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;" /><br style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">12th letter</span><br style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">87-(3(9))</span><br style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">Vu-u</span><br style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">the mathematical constant equal to 2.71828</span><br style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;"><br /></span></span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;"><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">√-i</span><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; line-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</span><br />20th letter&nbsp;</span></div><div>(I have to make sure you guys aren't just watching anime but also learning)</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/anime/6/41845l.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/anime/6/41845l.jpg" width="281" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: x-large;">Good night everybody!&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Hopefully you will love this anime as much as I love potatoes.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div><br /></div><div><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: inherit;"><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;"><br /></span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 16.5px;"><span style="font-family: inherit;"><br /></span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div></div>

No New Episode Tonight
Sorry for all of you that were expecting an episode tonight. As much as I hate to say it, there won't be one.<br /><br />Kevin has been really busy these past few weeks with school and life. I've been quite busy too, and&nbsp;perhaps&nbsp;not busy enough, since my grades are starting to slip. Henry, who I really wanted to have on this episode, is also busy.<br /><br />But above all else, I'm no longer comfortable with putting out an episode if I don't think it's a good one. Too many times now we've recorded an episode the night it's due out, and our lack of preparation has caused the quality to suffer. Last week was a good example. We&nbsp;definitely&nbsp;spent WAY too much time talking about&nbsp;absolutely&nbsp;nothing, and the topics I did want to go over were only just brushed upon. I want to release an episode only if those listening will enjoy it. We never have any notes, and for the most part any real discussion. William, our new writer, has so many good ideas for what we can do for Emi's episode that I don't want them to go to waste on a rushed recording. It might be quality control, but I don't want you&nbsp;listening&nbsp;to something I'm not proud of making.<br /><br />Once again, I'm really sorry to those who were excited to hear the next new episode. I promise next week's one will more than make up for it. Until then, I hope you keep listening and providing feedback. Love you guys. See you next week.<br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-g8xSEL5kBLw/UJnKgkyY-vI/AAAAAAAAA9k/0SS1Cr9w-o4/s1600/Ikezawa.Hanako.full.1108002.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="226" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-g8xSEL5kBLw/UJnKgkyY-vI/AAAAAAAAA9k/0SS1Cr9w-o4/s320/Ikezawa.Hanako.full.1108002.jpeg" width="320" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">I'm assuming this is your reaction to the news.</td></tr></tbody></table><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><br />

The main character, Simon, lives in a post-apocalyptic Earth where humanity is condemned to live underground while the surface is controlled by animal-like beastmen who pilot Ganmen (or possibly gunmen). Simon acts like a scared child much of the time, playing foil to his bro, Kamina, whose constant shows of fearlessness eventually inspire Simon, instilling the courage in him that he needs to row row fight the powah.&nbsp;</span><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: inherit;"><br /></span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b style="text-align: start;"><span style="font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"><br /></span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: inherit;"><br /></span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: inherit;"><img height="320" src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/KelQIseQVB7h7IU9OVPb4lye5epeY2jK-SWRWgL-yud8lOD6VvlQDWJmQn6SYX63SN2_c5-BGfF0hW-yyR_WwbRBcTfZCSEpdsrXAdRtAmlXuj0pSXY" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="222" /></span></b></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: inherit; font-size: small;">From left to right: Kamina, Simon, Yoko.

These are big, cheesy themes, I know, but they </span><span style="font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">work</span><span style="vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">. Gurren integrates them into the very souls of the characters and the anime takes place on such a grand scale, that they are realized by the entire universe.</span></span></span><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><img border="0" height="300px;" src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/kWA-iCXYcXTD1j50TeQc7cnLO97Sc0gAMWHVNndvzTOOCtnEIMXXtZmbZUT64XDCwMB-ms96eWD1Pwl9mHL-h5KSA3kXKCKtvwjBay40Aeh4CjR4TAs" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="300px;" /></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: small;">Spirals...</span></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><br /><span style="font-family: inherit;"><span id="internal-source-marker_0.7676357985474169"><span style="vertical-align: baseline;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;">Essentially, it’s a giant love letter to the mecha anime of the 80’s. It’s masculine, testosterone-packed kid v. mechs v. universe fun. A lot of people </span><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;">criticize</span><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"> the anime for being silly, over-the-top, etc. and reeking of fanservice. I don’t. I firmly believe that everything in this anime works with in the story. As I alluded to in the last paragraph, the crazy scale of Gurren Lagann is necessary for their crazy themes to be truly realized. Without all the fun and antics combined with the gratuitous battles it would only have been half of what we have today.</span></span><br /><span style="vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"></span><br /><span style="vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">So go watch it.

I didn’t cover all of my thoughts about the themes or how bloody depressing it all is once you consider how the characters end up.</span></span></span>

"I'm being so boring. This is exactly like every self-introduction ever."
So.. I'm William Bundy. My hobbies are computers and anime. I hope to get along well with everyone even though I'm a new blogger...<br /><br /><br /><br />Enough with the Hisao. You've likely seen me in the comments, or heard about me in Rin's podcast. After chatting with Ben over the tubes, I've been allowed to <strike>spout my crazy ideas</strike>&nbsp;make Anime/VN-related posts and even possibly join in the podcast fun.<br /><br />If you want to know more about me, I'm a senior in a southern California high school. I've played tuba in the band all four years, marching band freshman through junior, and this year I joined the Academic&nbsp;Decathlon&nbsp;team, possibly against my better judgement (<i>Doctor Zhivago </i>sucks). My family moved to America from Britain when I was quite young, and I've been brought up in a strange, southern Californian distortion of British culture. At the age of twelve I started learning how to program with ActionScript, i.e., Flash, eventually branching out into better platforms (Python, C#, C/C++ to name a few). I've always had a penchant for the maths and sciences, but under my current and previous English literature and language teachers, respectively, I've come to enjoy critical reading (as opposed to reading for fun) and analysis more and more.<br /><br /><br />Some facts more easily enumerated:<br /><br /><ul><li>My waifu is Lilly Satou.&nbsp;</li><li>My favourite anime is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, followed closely by several others.</li><li>I run Linux (Ubuntu 12.04, as it plays well with my dual monitor setup while not having broken packages)</li><li>Visual novel-wise, my first one was <i>Digital: A Love Story</i>. Apart from <i>Katawa Shoujo</i>, I've also played <i>Shuffle!</i> and <i>don't take it personally babe, it just ain't your story</i>.&nbsp;</li></ul><div><br /></div><br /><br /><br /><br />

KS Cast on Facebook!
After the&nbsp;release&nbsp;of <i>Manly Picnic</i>&nbsp;this week, Matt/Kenji sent me a message on Facebook asking me to consider making a group there in order to keep people updated on the show's happenings and whatnot. He even took the liberty to make the page himself. So we have that now.<br /><br />Please <a href="http://www.facebook.com/kspodcast" target="_blank">check it out</a>, and make sure to like it! Not only will you be able to stay&nbsp;informed&nbsp;on everything going on with the blog and show without having to constantly visit the page(though the pageviews are nice), but liking it will help me gauge how many people listen. I just started setting it up a few minutes ago, and already people whose names I do not know are popping up. I want to do some big things with this podcast, but I can't do it unless I know we have a lot of listeners to do it with.<br /><br />Thanks again for loving the show and for being awesome!<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/415/850/c35.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="256" src="http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/415/850/c35.png" width="320" /></a></div><br />

Were you expecting the Emi installment to our&nbsp;<i>Waifu of the Week</i> Series? Too bad! We're taking a two week break from that to bring you Kenji instead. I understand if you are disappointed that you didn't get to hear Emi's episode this week(don't worry, she's my favorite too). But it'll come eventually. Besides, won't it be so much more worth it when all that waiting pays off, and you get to hear the best episode of KS Cast about the best girl? I think so.</span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;">#obviousbias</span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;">Anyway, Kenji is our center of discussion this week. Kenji, we all know him. That Harry Potter look-alike who hates all things female and acts like that one loud obnoxious neighbor you can't stand to be around but also don't want him to leave. Let us take the time, tonight, to discuss our dear good ol' friend Kenji.</span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;">And top of all that, we have a guest this week! One that isn't just one of my friends this time! Known online as Kenji, because of his self-admin'd Facebook page of the same name, he has amassed almost 3,000 followers in his fight against the feminist army. We have the prestigious honor to talk to him about how he came to discover this little visual novel, what inspired him to create a fan page for it, and how managing to keep that many people entertained has affected him.</span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: inherit;">Manly Picnic.

5,000 Views!
Hey everyone! At the time of writing this, our little blog has amassed <b>5,003 pageviews</b>. That is just amazing to me. In just a little over a month, that many people have come and seen our blog. And none of those are mine, by the way. I made sure not to track those, or we'd have about twice that amount.<br /><br />So I just want to say thank you guys. This was originally made to entertain just a group of friends and I, but it has become so much more. I don't even know that many people. Your continued support is what keeps this blog alive and keeps the podcast on schedule(which reminds me, still need to record an episode. <i>Maybe we'll have a guest?</i>).<br /><br />Hopefully your guys' love for this podcast will only grow and spread to others, so I could have even more people to love. Which is good, because I love loving people.<br /><br />Thank you again for all the views! Here's to 5,000 more!<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ci135obzGNM/UINFiJqZo0I/AAAAAAAAA8Q/mrmJ_iUWml4/s1600/Rin.+Game+is+Katawa+_90e923c70fd5c93a9a7e39d38f06f60c.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="350" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ci135obzGNM/UINFiJqZo0I/AAAAAAAAA8Q/mrmJ_iUWml4/s400/Rin.+Game+is+Katawa+_90e923c70fd5c93a9a7e39d38f06f60c.jpeg" width="400" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Hugs all around!</td></tr></tbody></table><br />

I think I should pull a anime from this Seasons new list (Fall season). I'm already sure some of you started the anime you were waiting for, I know I sure have.<br /><br />And this week's spotlight will show us why we should watch this anime. First things first, some backstory. It started as a Visual Novel, and judging from the fact you all are reading this, then you must show some liking to VN's. And if I recall, this anime has been waited upon for a long time. I know for a fact Henry and Kevin have been waiting for this. I guess that gives it away for Kevin and Henry but not for you. The&nbsp;suspense&nbsp;must be&nbsp;killing you!<br /><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Please don't kill yourself</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><br /></span></div><span style="color: red;"><br /></span><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><b><u>Little Busters!</u></b></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-YY6rVo6MCXU/T7aaTmHIuBI/AAAAAAAADL0/BCWcm7nhLLI/s1600/Konachan.com+-+18343+kamikita_komari+kurugaya_yuiko+little_busters!+na-ga+natsume_rin+nishizono_mio+noumi_kudryavka+saigusa_haruka+zettai_ryouiki.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="480" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-YY6rVo6MCXU/T7aaTmHIuBI/AAAAAAAADL0/BCWcm7nhLLI/s640/Konachan.com+-+18343+kamikita_komari+kurugaya_yuiko+little_busters!+na-ga+natsume_rin+nishizono_mio+noumi_kudryavka+saigusa_haruka+zettai_ryouiki.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</span>I know its not Code Breaker. Or the new Hayate Combat Butler. But still, Little busters has been a long awaited anime to come out. One word:</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: x-large;">JUN MAEDA</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/voiceactors/3/8821.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/voiceactors/3/8821.jpg" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: x-large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: x-large;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </span>If you dont know what I mean by that, then kill yourself (no not really though). Jun Maeda has helped make many MANY terrific anime that everyone loves and enjoys, with the feelings with the Daisukis. He is a Hayao Miyuzaki but for music. Some examples of his work are Clannad, Angel beats(ANGEL BEATS), Air, and many others.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;If you still dont think its worth it(Think about it, Angel beats), a person that helped make such a great anime is making this. Why not give it try? Especially when it has been an anime that people have been waiting for.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Little Busters is about this young pretty boy named Riki who was a lonely man. But now he isn't, as he has many friends like Rin Natsume. But like most friendships, time comes and goes. The leader of their little group is leaving soon. And why be sad, why not create a great year full of memories? As a person who has not 1 but 2 really good friends who are now Seniors and are most likely moving out of the city, this really speaks to me. I have to say, I expect great things from this anime. From the first episode I already had some good laughs.</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><b><span style="font-size: large;">Info:</span></b></div><div style="text-align: left;">Genre: Romance, School , Drama, Comedy</div><div style="text-align: left;">Episodes :1 (so far, but 26 are expected)</div><div style="text-align: left;">Rating: 8/10 would watch again!</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;"><u><b>Thats all for this one!</b></u></span></div><div style="text-align: center;">This has been another Azunyan Spotlight!</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-qwUvb9dtf-4/UHdm4fYfZ8I/AAAAAAAAACY/no2MFfpmsrQ/s1600/690c27151169ea85ca3db09bfff37593_big.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-qwUvb9dtf-4/UHdm4fYfZ8I/AAAAAAAAACY/no2MFfpmsrQ/s200/690c27151169ea85ca3db09bfff37593_big.jpg" width="197" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">And see you next time!~~<br />Nya Nya~~</td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;"><u><b><br /></b></u></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: red; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div>

iWishToHug You! Designated Blogger!
<div style="text-align: center;">Hey Guys iWishToHugYou here!<br />So on the last podcast we talked about needing designated bloggers, and I chose to become one,<br />Now today is a half day for classes, and I don't start late today, so I only have 26 minutes for this blog.<br />LET'S GET STARTED<br /><img alt="" height="320" original-title="" src="http://i.imgur.com/pC8Eh.jpg" width="320" /></div><a name='more'></a>So I blog when I have time, and I usually have free time between classes, so the pictures are weak, I will make sure I add photos to this post later (Or if Ben adds some without me knowing I won't complain :3)<br /><br />So we actually got out the latest episode of our podcast, It is slightly late, but at least released on the date it was supposed to go out :D<br />That episode we really didn't have much material to go on, so we released it UNEDITED! (with one exception of Ben's sister coming in xD) While we were going through it, it seemed half arsed, but I actually think it was entertaining.<br /><br />So I've noticed when we podcast we go by our first names, so for anyone who is wondering I am David, When I blog I go by the blogger name, well because I'm used to doing that on another blog I write for.<br /><br />Like I said today is a half day for classes, I would be happy about it, but really the only reason we have a half day instead of an actual day off, is because of the CTU strike, *sigh*<br />But I'll try to keep to the bright side of things, at least I can go hang out with some friends after class.<br /><br /><br />I noticed that we went off topic during the podcast, and wanted to clear some stuff up.<br /><br /><br />Lilly, her route in my opinion is the closest to normal you can get. You have Shizune busting your balls all the time with her dominate personality, and with Emi she is leading the relationship the whole way. But with Lilly you actually get the feels of having a woman, the feeling of you not being alone....<br />Then you exit the game and notice your life indeed sucks. kekeke<br />I started playing Katawa Shoujo just because a friend told me to, but as I played I got sucked into this world, I felt what Hisao felt, and I think that's the best part of this visual novel.<br />In the blog I don't want to play spoilers, so I just need to say, if you are hating on the game for any reason, just give it a chance, I did and I don't regret it.<br /><br />Like I said I only have time for a quick update, (and I need to add photos to this later).<br />So this has been iWishToHugYou with Katawa Shoujo blog.<br />Have a great day.<br />So lets start something, like my own signature.....<br />SONG OF THE DAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY:<br />iWishToHugYou<br />Artist: Bandits Of the Acoustic Revolution<br />Song: It's a Wonderful Life<br />Check it out :D

Auditions and Callbacks
So, my choir teacher made me audition for the school musical this year. I was not prepared in the slightest! There were plenty of people there that have acting experience and I'm just the underdog trying to get a part. I got motivated last second by my choir teacher because I was thinking about giving up.<br /><br />I was extremely surprised when I got called back for today, it was surreal. I didn't have a monologue prepared for the audition, so I just got one quickly off the internet so I could learn it and do some faces. I'm so ready to get the part of pimp daddy Marcus Lycus.

A short introduction of myself.
Hey everyone, this is my first time writing on the cast blog so far, so I decided to would do a short introduction of myself while I'm <strike>wasting away at mandatory, government-enforced education</strike>&nbsp;bored at school. So here we go.<br /><br />My name is Kevin, I'm sure you've heard a lot from me from the first three podcast episodes we have out so far. My waifu is <span style="color: blue;">Shizune </span><b>(check out Episode 3 to listen to me defend myself against the angry Hanabros).&nbsp;</b><br /><br />...and that's all I have to say for myself at the current moment. I may do a Q&amp;A if there is demand for it because I like answering questions. Unfortunately I won't be in a few episodes following 3 because my mouth had some issues, but I should be back to tango very soon.<br /><br />I hope you are enjoying our&nbsp;endeavors. Cheers.<br /><br />Signin out,<br />Kevin<br /><br />P.S. <span style="color: blue;">SHI-HAEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL</span>

Azusa Nanako &lt;3</div><div><br /></div><div>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;K-on is a Slice of Life anime that I love. It is not one of those Shoenen animes or one of those mahou shoujos. It is simply slice of life. If you enjoyed Lucky Star I have a feeling you would like this. K-on is quite funny and entertaining, and provides the cutest scenes ever. The anime really makes you want go "AWHHHHH~" all the time but maybe this is just me (and millions of others).<br />&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;K-on has 2 seasons, several OVAs, and a movie. I will say this, this anime doesnt require you to watch it all in one go. That is the beauty of it; the anime still has a overall/general story line. But not watching it for a while won't make you forget everything and not have a clue whats going on. It's simple, which I love.</div><div>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;K-on is about 4 girls: Mio, Yui, Tsumgui and Ritsu. They are later joined by a 5th member Azusa (&lt;33 waifu). There are others like Sadawa-sensei, Nodaka, and Ui. They all give a different flavor to the anime. Ritsu is a tomboyish, have-fun attitude girl, while Mio is a shy, want to be on the side lines kind of girl. Yui is just a lightheaded girl that gets distracted easily but is very loveable. Tsumugi is the rich one that brings what we all love.... CAKE! And Azusa or Azunyan.

A Selection of Other Recommended Visual Novels
<br /><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; If you're anything like the rest of us (and chances are, you are, since you're here), then you were likely left with a feeling of “what next?” after completing Katawa Shoujo. No more choices left to make; no more memories left to create. It may sound like I'm being sarcastic, but I'm not. It was a pretty hollow feeling I had once it was over.</div><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><br /></div><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Fortunately, Katawa Shoujo is just one in a sea of excellent visual novels out there, all exploring similar themes, or at least having the same feels-laden effects. While I'll never be one to say that you should spend your time on the computer as opposed to working out, learning an instrument, or meeting new people (all common results of reading KS), it is nice to know that there's always something new you can dive into to try to reclaim that feeling.</div><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><br /></div><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Before I get started on a few other, highly-recommended visual novels, I want to say one thing: I won't post download links here (unless the program is freeware to begin with). Make your own decisions about piracy, but know that these companies do rely on their games selling to keep making more. With that said, fan-made English patches, which are necessary for most VN's, are almost always free to download, so don't hesitate to post those here. I might, if I can find any links. With all that out of the way, the first feels-heavy visual novel on our list is...<br /><br /><br /><a name='more'></a><br /></div><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><br /></div><div style="margin-bottom: 0in;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<b><i>Symphonic Rain. &nbsp;</i></b></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-bzTXRS8XwL0/UF4K3OsdbkI/AAAAAAAAAIg/oSKJzUsa9ho/s1600/Symphonic_Rain_Rainbow.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-bzTXRS8XwL0/UF4K3OsdbkI/AAAAAAAAAIg/oSKJzUsa9ho/s320/Symphonic_Rain_Rainbow.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Symphonic Rain is famous for a couple reasons. One is for being an absolute pain to patch to English. Another is for being well-worth the effort. The story follows Chris Verittin (don't quote me on spelling, there) a musical prodigy who has the rare ability of being able to play an instrument called the fortell. Separated by a great distance from his girlfriend Ari, he has few friends at the prestigious music school he attends. One of the few is Ari's younger sister, Torta. The other is Phorni, a "sprite of music" with whom he shares his life and apartment. While she's got a wonderful singing voice, nobody else can see or hear her. He's quite sure of the little fairy's existence, though.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; During the events of the game, he also meets Falsita, an extremely talented and renowned vocalist, as well as Lise, a freshman and amateur vocalist. These two characters, along with Torta, make up the three initially-playable routes, with a couple extras that can be unlocked as these ones are finished</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The basic premise of the plot revolves around Chris' laziness, especially when it comes to finding a vocalist with whom he can partner up for his end of the year, graduation recital. With the opportunity to meet three skilled vocalists in game, well... I think you can see where this is going.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Originally released in 2004, the game has stood up well, consistently ranking highly in visual novel popularity charts. One of the crowning achievements of Kogado Studios, it's also one of a very limited number of their works to have been translated to English. Like a couple of their other VN's, Symphonic Rain also includes a rhythmic, music-playing minigame in which the reader must play along with certain songs. It's kinda like Guitar Hero, on a keyboard. For those who don't enjoy it, though, the option is available to set the game to auto-mode.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; With a grand total of six routes, each of varying lengths, the game is about medium length. It contains no nudity or sexual content, nor strong language, earning it an "All Ages" rating.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<b><i>Clannad</i></b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-h1V0xg8XNrk/UF4NtpfwB2I/AAAAAAAAAIw/TzKj3rS4-vA/s1600/Clannad-sushi7777-27845495-1600-1200.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-h1V0xg8XNrk/UF4NtpfwB2I/AAAAAAAAAIw/TzKj3rS4-vA/s400/Clannad-sushi7777-27845495-1600-1200.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;In the world of anime and visual novels, one that's always spoken of with hushed tones and words of reverie is Clannad. One of several masterpieces by Key, the company that pioneered the nakige, or "crying game," genre, Clannad is also the most renowned.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The main character is Tomoya Okazaki, a good-for-nothing high school student who may not even be able to graduate. A few months into his senior year, he meets a variety of girls who just might be able to change him. They are, in order from left to right according to the above image: Fuko Ibuki, Kotomi Ichinose, Kyou Fujibayashi, Nagisa Furakawa, and Tomoyo Sakagami. Nagisa's is the "main" route of the game, and the anime adaptation focuses on her story.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Intermittently, throughout all the routes, strange scenes taking place in a world that has ended occur. In these scenes, there are but two characters: a sentient doll, constructed of junk, and the girl who made him. They are the only two left in this desolate place, which sparkles with lights that promise of another, better world.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Key seamlessly blends these two worlds together, using the unique mixture of realism and magic that only they seem to be able to get right. Throughout the different routes, and even the non-romantic ones, the reader learns more and more about Tomoya and about each character, as they collect mysterious "orbs of light." All the secrets are revealed in the second half of the already lengthy game, entitled "After Story." (Note that these are all part of the same story; there is no second disk or anything). After Story is a continuation of the primary Nagisa route, and widely hailed as much better than the preceding half of the game, which is known as the School Life arc.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;It's very much a slice-of-life VN, but so was Katawa Shoujo. It's also a helluva time commitment. The most popular path guide online is titled the "Clannad 300 Hour Guide," and that name may not be inaccurate. With approximately 11 arcs, all of considerable length, in just the School Life arc alone, Clannad earns a "very long" description. It's well worth it, though - there's a reason the game holds the number two spot for VN rankings, just below Muv-Luv. Clannad contains some language, no nudity, and some sexual content, but nothing too explicit. It's appropriate for all ages, just with some discretion.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;For those who are interested in the story but don't want to put forth the time required to play through the VN, Kyoto Animation has also made an excellent anime adaptation that touches on each of the routes, while primarily focusing on Nagisa's. Between Clannad and the Clannad: After Story series, there are about 50 episodes, with a number of OVA's, and a movie that covers both seasons.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;In addition, Key released a spin-off game entitled "Tomoyo After: It's a Wonderful Life," which focuses entirely on the popular character of Tomoyo Sakagami and what things would've been like if she were the main character. An English patch for the game was just released yesterday, so I haven't had the chance to read it yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<b><i>Yume Miru Kusuri - A Drug That Makes You Dream</i></b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZyF1YMbB6dA/UF4RfUJLvZI/AAAAAAAAAJA/RRsKqQ9Goog/s1600/yume-miru-kusuri.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="211" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZyF1YMbB6dA/UF4RfUJLvZI/AAAAAAAAAJA/RRsKqQ9Goog/s400/yume-miru-kusuri.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;While it's widely hailed as a great beginner VN, I'll be honest - I don't think that highly of YMK. However, it needs to be mentioned, solely for what its done for the medium.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; One of the first Japanese VN's to be translated to English, YMK was popular before KS was even an idea, some five or so years ago. The creators wanted to make a game focusing on issues that they thought would be relevant to high school students, such as sex, drugs, and bullying.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;They succeeded, but the results can be seen as a little extreme.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The main character is Kouhei Kagame. He's a fairly ordinary high school student, with no remarkable traits, save his feeling of emptiness. Suddenly, his whole world is turned upside down when he meets three remarkable girls. They are Aeka, the exchange student who is perpetually bullied, Mizuki, the student council president who is bored of life, and Nekoko, who claims to be a fairy.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Kouhei's own problems are quickly put into perspective as he gets to know these three girls and has to save them from their own issues. Not, of course, without a gratuitous amount of sex involved, though.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The game does a good job of making you feel for the characters. I'll give it that much. I damn near cried a number of times in Aeka's route, and even shed a tear or two at times. However, the game is stuffed with a <i>lot </i>of sex. While I've got no problem with sexual content, this was disgustingly much. As such, I only completed Aeka's route and got only part of the way through Mizuki's, never even touching Nekoko's.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;So, why is it considered such a great beginner's VN? I'm honestly not sure. It's got moments of feels, moments of humor, and moments that really make you question your own existence. That much is true. Still though, for me, YMK felt like a chore to read at times, and my mentioning it here is more or less obligatory. I know a lot of people love it all the same, and if you enjoy it, more power to you. Come back and let the rest of us know how it was.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;With three routes of I-Don't-Know-How-Long length, YMK is still just a medium length VN. It's got lots of nudity, lots of strong language, and lots of sexual content, making it for mature audiences only.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Obviously, this is only a tiny sample of what's waiting for you in the wonderful world of visual novels. However, these were some of the most frequently recommended VN's when I looked for a place to vanish to after KS, and are some of the most popular novels around. For what it's worth, Symphonic Rain is my favorite in the world. These three, along with Katawa Shoujo, have played a huge role in bringing me to where I am today, and I'd love to hear that they do the same for you, too.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">&nbsp; &nbsp; Disagree with my taste?

Now from a student's point of view I do have to say I just want to go back to school. Not only is this my Senior Year, which makes it crucial to have to talk to teachers for college letters, it also takes away from the time I as a student need to learn, especially with all these advanced classes that have AP tests at the end of the year.<br /><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UAmU94uDj2s/UFFpxJe0ivI/AAAAAAAAAJ4/2J89c0Jvc2w/s1600/hanako_awww_library.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="240" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UAmU94uDj2s/UFFpxJe0ivI/AAAAAAAAAJ4/2J89c0Jvc2w/s320/hanako_awww_library.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">The only thing I can really do right now is, self study and get ahead on work. So it's time to run down to the library with my waifu and spend some time studying together. But for now it seems like the strike will last the rest of the week, and I REALLY hope that we will be back in school by next week.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-7UHRIERvuj4/UFFqv0AKzMI/AAAAAAAAAKA/be1nGwdgF_8/s1600/lilly-date.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="240" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-7UHRIERvuj4/UFFqv0AKzMI/AAAAAAAAAKA/be1nGwdgF_8/s320/lilly-date.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">Well this has been iWishToHugYou with the update on the CTU strike.<br />Just wanted to remind you all Lily is best Waifu!<br />Till next time!<br />Later all!</div>

Hey Redditors!
So and friend of mine <a href="http://pa.reddit.com/r/katawashoujo/comments/zqwk0/im_these_guys_pr_manager_comments_and_criticism/" target="_blank">posted</a> a link to our blog on the <a href="http://pa.reddit.com/r/katawashoujo" target="_blank">Katawa Shoujo Subreddit</a>, and oh my god guys.<br /><br />We got over 700 pageviews today, most of them coming from that post. That's more than twice the views this blog had gotten in the past few days it's been up. That's amazing. The guys over there we also kind enough to give some&nbsp;criticism&nbsp;about the blog layout to help improve it.<br /><br />So, I just want to give a quick shout-out to everyone at Reddit who came to check us out. It means a lot to me and it helps this blog grow. Please pass the word on to any more of your friends who are a fan of Katawa Shoujo, and don't hesitate to leave on comment on this post about anything that can be improved. <b>We are still looking for people who can write outro songs for the podcast, people to post on the blog, people that can help design a better layout, and anyone that wants to talk on the podcast. If you're interested in helping, just contact me at katawashoujopodcast@gmail.com!</b><br /><br />Thanks again guys.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/12/121367/2115716-47e.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="263" src="http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/12/121367/2115716-47e.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br />

Life doesn’t always work out that well. Learn from the experience move on, and you will find love someday. But you never got to give up, can’t let yourself get down. Stand up and fucking push on."</span></blockquote></div><span style="background-color: white;"> </span><br /><div style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white;">-Vespers</span></div><span style="background-color: white;"> </span><br /><div style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white;"><br /></span></div><span style="background-color: white;"> </span><br /><div style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;">He said it the best. Be optimistic, life goes on, and even if it doesn't go well, you don't always have to move on. What I mean by that is if you really like this person, then show them by not just trying once to ask them out, but keep at it and let them know it little ways that you like them. You can do anything as simple as, treating them to lunch, or accompany them on your way home from school on the bus/train. I know that it can feel tedious, and you sometimes want to rip your hair out but you need patience, if you said you were committed and willing to do anything for this person, then sometimes you need to just take the time to do small things.</span></div><span style="background-color: white;"> </span><br /><div style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><span id="goog_2116019562"></span><span id="goog_2116019563"></span><br /></span></div><span style="background-color: white;"> </span><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-FQoRHarzjEg/UE_b0xYLEDI/AAAAAAAAAJY/LW8FwN2ORO8/s1600/1337951595797.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="background-color: white; margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="259" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-FQoRHarzjEg/UE_b0xYLEDI/AAAAAAAAAJY/LW8FwN2ORO8/s320/1337951595797.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><blockquote class="tr_bq"><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: x-small;">"</span><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: x-small; text-align: left;">You can’t go into a relationship if you are not going to be fully committed or the relationship will fail. You have to make yourself look like if you weren’t like any other guy, be unique but most importantly be yourself, have confidence and tell her how you are feeling. Tell her how much you love her, how much your passion for her burns; tell her that even the mother fucking sun pales in her radiance.

The girl I am going after knows I would do anything for her, granted she sometimes goes overboard with the requests but you need to be&nbsp;committed&nbsp;to the point that she wants you to be. If you aren't willing to, lets say, learn sign language for the girl you like, and it would make her happy if you did, well then...she isn't for you, so lower your standards and try again.</span></span><br /><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"><br /></span></span></span><br /><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"></span></span><br /></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white; color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-saVRY22I9ao/UE_dvHrXWVI/AAAAAAAAAJg/zVPK5e36iIM/s1600/28489-katawa-shoujo-satou-lilly.e76da0991529a181cc0165b4b9be900a.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="background-color: white; margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="240" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-saVRY22I9ao/UE_dvHrXWVI/AAAAAAAAAJg/zVPK5e36iIM/s320/28489-katawa-shoujo-satou-lilly.e76da0991529a181cc0165b4b9be900a.jpg" width="320" /></a></span></div><span style="background-color: white;"><br /><span style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">Well I wanted to end this post with some of my own thoughts to help out everyone. And the one thing I have to say is that no girl is the same as the next. And not every girl is right for you. In the game Katawa Shoujo each girl is different and has their own thing to say, and they each have different feelings. In Vespers' post he didn't seem to mention that a relationship is with two people and you need to take into account how the other feels, Take Lily's route for an example, as Lily is deciding that she has to go away again she failed to notice how Hisao feels, and vice versa. In my own situation the girl I am interested in is adamant on the fact that she doesn't want to date till college and I respect that in every way. So if you really like that person, sometimes you just have to wait. And they say some things are best waited for.</span></span></span><br /><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"></span></span><br /></span><br /><span style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white; color: #0f1419; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">And this has been iWishToHugYou with the first post from me.<br />Later People!<br />And Remember Lily is best Waifu!<br />Link to Vespers' "How To Pick Up Girls":&nbsp;<a href="http://katawashoujopodcast.blogspot.com/2012/09/on-request-of-some-of-ksers.html">http://katawashoujopodcast.blogspot.com/2012/09/on-request-of-some-of-ksers.html</a></span></span></div><span style="background-color: #fef2d2;"></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div>

class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Ok, some of the guys from the KS club have asked me to give them tips on picking up girls. I am not very good at it myself, but here it goes. First of all, it doesn’t really matter how you look like on the outside as long as you are not a stranger to love; you got to have confidence, I can’t stress that enough, there are some ugly ass guys out there with pretty girlfriends, and they have them because they are daring. Your face could literally look like a fucking piece of plywood nailed on a donkey’s ass, but if you have confidence and a personality (even if its douche), it’ll work out. There are a few simple rules on how to pick up girls, as long as you know the rules and so does she, you will be guaranteed a sure fire way of picker her up. <span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span>You are more likely to get rejected by average looking girls then hot ones, because people approach the average looking girls more than the hot ones because of “league values”, that is to say they think the average looking girls are more obtainable then hot ones. So it actually is easier to get with hot girls, because most people are just too scared too approach them, so go get fucking balls and approach them.&nbsp;</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">You can’t go into a relationship if you are not going to be fully committed or the relationship will fail. You have to make yourself look like if you weren’t like any other guy, be unique but most importantly be yourself, have confidence and tell her how you are feeling. Tell her how much you love her, how much your passion for her burns; tell her that even the mother fucking sun pales in her radiance. You gotta to make her understand that she is special to you, and you treasure her and will promise to love her.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">There are going to be some rough patches in your relationship, you can’t give up on her, even if she tells you to fuck off and die, it probably isn’t true, you have to stay there by her side. Like when Hanako shut herself out, you can’t give up on them, you got to be there for them, don’t leave, never say goodbye. Sometimes you might make her cry, and guess what you may or may not be a dick. You have to talk to her and tell her the truth and make her understand, you will never hurt her. </div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">You got to have confidence, and not give a fuck. You can’t be a little bitch and just dive in there. Don’t be afraid to shuffle your feet from side to side and whip your hair. Girls love that for some odd reason. The longer you have known them runs a higher chance that you get attached to them in a more-than-friendly way, and you might be afraid to ask them out in fear of messing up your friendship. But hey, you need to do it, or else you will regret not knowing what could have been. And if you stop being friends because of it, then so be it, that means that either one of you or both, can’t really put that thing past you, although you will have to if you truly value you them as your friend. Her heart my ache at breaking yours, or you breaking hers, or whatever, but deep down both of you know what has to happen. She might even try to get out of it, and ignore your questions, but you got to press on and tell her how you are feeling.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Above all be yourself. If it doesn’t work out, then oh well bummer. Life doesn’t always work out that well. Learn from the experience move on, and you will find love someday. But you never got to give up, can’t let yourself get down. Stand up and fucking push on.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">(I am not responsible for any mishaps because of this post.) </div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div>

First podcast... done?...
Well we got off some nice discussion about the CTU strike in Chicago and managed to get through our favorite characters without a total shitstorm...<br /><br />I'd say a job well done.<br /><br />Now to wait for Ben to get the actual podcast up...<br /><br />-Gnawliryc/Cyril

Ay, Jesu Cristo
So, I'll be busy weekend mornings to afternoons around 3:00 p.m cause work. Work is just a drag cause I got this one manager, but whatever. Just checking to see if the post works.

New Layout(still in progress)!
So, as you can see, the blog looks very different now. I downloaded a program called Artisteer to help me design this layout.<br /><br />This was SUPPOSED to be a quick layout to make, but there were errors with the HTML coding that I needed to go in and fix, and since this was my first time using HTML, I had some issues. Even now the site isn't perfect. There are some adjustments to the size and positioning I still want to fix, as well as text color.&nbsp;But, this'll do for now.<br /><br />So please look around and see if you encounter any problems, and tell me if you do. I may not be able to fix them with my limited knowledge, but I sure can try.<br /><br />~aamclcp<br /><br />P.S- Podcasting coming soon.

Test Post ~Desu
<br /><br />Alright Katawa Shoujo is of course the reason why we are all here. But anyone want to tell us the journey of why they started to play Katawa Shoujo?<br /><br />&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Even though we all play Katawa Shoujo, I feel we need to get to know each other more. Not all of us go to the same school so this Blog would be a great&nbsp;opportunity&nbsp;to share some thoughts about things<br /><br /><br />Lets have some fun and answer some questions !<br /><br /><b>Questions:</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>1. Favorite Anime and why?</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>2. Favorite Characters (Top 3 from anything anime, games etc etc)</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>3. Favorite Games</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>4. What games do you play daily (LoL, Dota, Online games that we can all play etc)</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>5. Thoughts on the Strike. (Provide some background info) And if you know if there would even be a strike.</b><br /><br /><br /><br />I hope we all get along and have some fun together!<br /><br />~Azunyan

Test Post!
How goes it? This is just a quick test to see if I know what I'm doing. Hopefully so! I've got a FeedBurner all set up and&nbsp;integrated&nbsp;with the blog. I also made an account on OurMedia.org, where I should be able to upload the podcasts to Archive.org. I'm just doing this by ear, so hopefully it doesn't fall flat on its face!<br /><br />We still need to:<br /><br />1. Make a custom blog template (never done that before).<br />2. Make a podcast logo to be displayed on the iTunes feed.<br />3. SET UP the iTunes feed.<br />4. Oh yeah, RECORD SOMETHING.<br /><br />We are planning on recording Monday if the CTU does go on strike, and talk about that and whatnot. It normally takes a few days for iTunes to approve a podcast feed on their store, so it probably won't go up the day we record. We'll&nbsp;arrange&nbsp;upload dates and the frequency of updates at a later date.<br /><br />If there's anything I forgot to add to the to-do list, please let me know!<br /><br />Signing off,<br /><br />aamclcp
