I want to change the name of this blog

Wait wait wait, before you object. Let me explain why.

First and foremost, the word xtechbiz, has no meaning. I don’t even remember why I came up with that word.

Most of the famous/successful/good blogs have a proper name. And when I say a proper name, it doesn’t need to be something sensible. It just needs to have a meaning. Like, people would put their favourite things, or their names, or some words that make sense.

It’s usual fine if the name does not make sense, but it needs to be easy to remember. It also needs to not sound stupid. (when you say it out loud in your head)

To be brutally honest, xtechbiz fulfils none of those.

Also, the thing of having that senseless name for such a long time is starting to rub me off the wrong way. I’m fine with it as an email address or whatsoever, just, not a blog’s name.

For the first time ever, I’m going to have a poll. Please, if you’re one of the few who visits this blog regularly, just vote, it won’t take a minute. I have a couple of ideas. Of course, you could submit your own suggestions and I’ll take a look.

Vote please!

If the results is conclusive I’ll try my best to wrap up everything in 2 days (:

Natsume Yuujinchou review

Translated Title: Natsume’s Book of Friends

natsume02

Okay, before you go searching for this anime, let me clarify that there is two versions of it. I still don’t really get it yet but I guess the latest one is a remake of it?

It is really awesome so I wouldn’t be surprised anyway.

So the original one is aired in 2008. (I regret not watching this earlier). Okay, I just did a little search and found out some stuffs and hopefully it’ll clear some of the questions.

Currently, there is 3 of it. The other 2 being a sequel.

Natsume Yūjin-Chō  (original, 2008)

Zoku Natsume Yūjin-Chō (1st sequel, 2009)

Natsume Yūjin-Chō San (2nd sequel, 2011)

So.. apparently I downloaded Zoku. And I’m currently trying to download the first one. It’s kinda hard cause it’s 3 years ago ya know. But.. I SHOULD be able to get it after some sourcing. The latest one is up to episode 5 so far.

Okay now that all of that is out of the way, here’s a synopsis taken from animenewsnetwork

Plot Summary: Natsume Takashi has the ability to see spirits, which he has long kept secret. However, once he inherits a strange book that belonged to his deceased grandmother, Reiko, he discovers the reason why spirits surround him. Containing the names of these spirits, a binding contract was formed between the spirits and the owner of the book. Now, Natsume is determined to free the spirits and dissolve the contracts. With the help of a spirit cat, his days are filled trying to return the names to these spirits.

So basically, the book contains names of the spirits, and that gives the holder absolute control over the spirit. But Natsume has the ability to return the name, giving the back the spirit it’s power and things like that.

Um. It may not sound like much, but it’s like, each spirit has it’s own chapter. Telling a different story for each spirit, and how Natsume is able to help them. I would say that this is a really sad show for me to watch. Because there are fated encounters, and inevitable farewells.

I really like this because it’s based on folklore. Things like deity, and spirits intrigue me. Also, it isn’t really action packed. (sure there are some fighting and stuffs but it’s not over done) The nice thing about this anime is that it is very calm, like your everyday life, I don’t know how to put it in words but it just gives me a nice serene feeling when I watch it.

“I would give an 8.5 for this.”

And I really really think that everyone should give it a go, I think you’ll probably like it. (and that’s why it has 2 sequels rightttt)


Dantalian no Shoka review

Translated title: The Mystic Archives of Dantalian

Dantalian_no_Shoka_1024_768

9 upon 10

Simply because this is the type of anime that I enjoy the most.

The genre is a mix of mystery, fantasy, gothic and historical. In a way, this is similar to Gosick with a bit of Elfen Lied feeling to it. Well, if you listen to the opening song that I posted previously, you should be able to get a rather good idea of what this show is like.

It’s the kind of story that you would take the time to sit down and listen to. It’s that romantic idea of fantasy, to the point where you cast can away all feelings and just enjoy the show.

Well, I find it a little troublesome to write the synopsis so I’ll just take from myanimelist

Hugh Anthony Disward inherits an old mansion and a personal library from his grandfather. In the basement of the mansion, he meets a mysterious girl, Dalian. She is a Dantalian and a gateway to "Dantalian’s bookshelf", which stores the prohibited books of the demons.
"Gensho (Illusory Books)", the prohibited books, endanger the balance of the world, but people are fascinated by the taboo. Hugh and Dalian solve the cases involving Gensho with their ability to access the Dantalian bookshelf.

So this show is all about mystic books more or less.

Well, I really really love shows like these. A few that you should really really check out is Spice and Wolf, Kuroshitsuji, Noein, Rozen Maiden, Utawarerumono.

That’s it for now, I’ll go back to moe-ing about my other animes ^^


Dantalian no Shoka

The moon silently tells
with a voice unheard by all
of the ever-repeating rise of the tide.,
whose sight I remember from my fading memories.
The stars secretly tell,
with letters known by none,
of infinite, swirling words
that birth books beyond count.
The sky is too vast for one such as me,
and the pace of time is far too swift.
Forever lost,
the words gathered for naught
will simply rot away inside the earth.
Even so I will shout out,
I will raise my voice not knowing why.
At least its echo can reach the heavens,
and before long the sun will rise.

– Opening 1


Mawaru Penguindrum

I hate the world “fate.”

Birth, encounters, partings, success and failure, fortune and misfortune in life. If everything is already set in stone by fate, then why are we even born?

– Mawaru Penguindrum Episode 1

MawaruPenguindrum

One of the many new animes this season. A really ridiculous storyline but I think it’s worth a watch cause, well, it’s ridiculous. I don’t really plan on reviewing it, I just wanted to share the quote. But a short summary of what happened.

2 brothers, 1 sister, no parents, sister suddenly died, sister suddenly revived, they got colonized by penguins, and 1 brother kissed the sister.

I’m sure you’re interested now.
