This mecha is from the newest Japanese Super Sentai (AKA Power Rangers) series. Apparently it’s a kids’ TV show.
Currently a graduate-school student at Stevens Institute of Technology; before that, did undergrad at Richard Stockton College of NJ. Formerly a math tutor for Stockton's tutoring center and EOF program, but (currently) I work professionally in database programming. Programming fiend. Math enthusiast. Music lover (and sometimes music maker). Entertainment fan spanning everything from movies, videogames, anime, memes, and much more.
Japanese TV interviewed a couple over the weekend about the recent snowstorm. The guy mentioned how he likes “walking in the snow with his lover.” His girlfriend was embarrassed. And thus, a new meme was born.
A year-plus after it was first started, delayed beyond all belief, it’s finally finished.
I have completed the 30 Day Anime Challenge.
For anyone that checked into any of my previous days, thank you very much for looking! This was an incredibly fun and challenging undertaking, not only making me seriously consider my thoughts and sentiments for the topics of each day, but also putting my writing skills and style to the test. And hell, it was extremely gratifying getting back some notes and asks, knowing that I’ve got some kindred spirits out there on some of these eccentric opinions.
In other news, holy shit I’ve actually ended up legitimately finishing something that I started ALL THE WAY TO THE END. Hell has practically frozen over and this calls for a celebration!
And now, for the sake of making an intellectual snapshot, it’s time to review! The following are the short-form answers to all of the 30 days of anime, along with links to their related full posts.
