Doing cold turkey on shrimp is a very bad idea, especially for Ika since she absolutely adores it!

Shinryaku! Ika Musume
Both Seasons (2010, 2011)
For those who are in America, I hope everyone had a nice Turkey Day. My Thanksgiving weekend was quiet as I spent most of my time playing Minecraft. In addition, the holiday shopping got completed rather quickly since I knew what I want. Unlike last year, I brought no Anime, but instead a good number of games including a Playstation 3 version of Idolm@ster 2!
In addition, “The Idolmaster Animation Master 5” released yesterday in Japan and I ordered a first press release of the disc. I can’t wait to hear the full versions of Heart of Marionette (マリオネットの心) and Myself Rest@rt (自分REST@RT) since I heard from other people that they sound excellent.
On a serious note, my mom goes for surgery to remove a Stage I Kidney Cancer next Monday. From the day of its discovery, we have been a bit anxious. Hopefully, she will have a speedy recovery once it gets taken cared of. (Image Source)

Yep, Ika finally gets her own invasion club so she can take over mankind! Sort of…

Subsequently after the downtime that caused a significant drop in hits, I’m plan to fight with the hosting company so I can get a prorated refund and move to a more reliable shared hosting for another year. Although a VPS is nice and all, I need to learn how to set one up locally before actually taking a risk.
During the downtime, I have taken the plunge and brought the fifth Idolmaster Animation Master, which contains a few notable songs from Episode 13. I promise to post pictures of it once it gets released (and no, not like this).
On the brighter note, last week’s anime was exciting with Mini-Ika returning and most importantly, the Chihaya episode. (Image Source)

Miraculously, our power finally returned on Monday after I spent two nights sitting in a cold, dark room. Thankfully, there were no trick-or-treaters this year, so we didn’t have to go through the annoyance of the doorbell ringing every minute and having to pass out candy.
Aside from that, Ika Musume finally comes back from hiatus to make our day brighter along with Ritsuko’s comeback as an idol. Fate/zero on the other hand, it was somewhat disappointing, but still remains strong show. In addition to this, I will share this year’s pick for the Aniblogger Secret Santa project. (Image Source)

Considering that I’m now taking part in the Anime Power Rankings, the answer is yes. A fellow Animeblogger named kevo runs these rankings to see how the currently airing shows are doing at a particular week. Given that I want to share my reasoning behind these votes and possibly add brief thoughts of episodes from older seasons that aren’t part of the rankings, I decided on doing it. This is how it’s going to work:
- I will concentrate on the shows that I have voted on the rankings first. This means the shows I’m up to date on are eligible for this. Sub availability plays a key role in this. Once I know enough Japanese, this will go a lot smoother as I can just jump right in and then re-watch the subs later while having a sufficient understanding of what I watched.
- Second part will focus on unranked shows. These are shows that I’m currently behind in because of uncontrollable circumstances.
- If there is any, the last part only focuses on episodes from shows of other seasons. They won’t be part of any ranking whatsoever.
- Lastly, this is not a replacement for episodic posts. It’s meant to recap what I watched during the week.
So, let’s get started, shall we? (Image Source used in this post)

Oh god, what are the children doing? It looks like an act of brainwashing for an evil plan or something. Either way, you better run for it before they take over your mind!
