Spring 2014 Survey Results
Mon May 12, 2014 5:39 am

Bootkiller:  From the very bottom of my heart, I hope there will be steam achievements/trading cards.
qPenguin:  Hatoful Boyfriend coming to Steam!!!
tony-kun:  I can't believe he was a plant cyborg
chronomeister:  And I am damn impressed by Gnome Games. A+ Vendor. They had some demo copies of various board/card games that you could pretty much just take and try out (they had their own room). And one of the staff was like "Yeah later this year they are releasing set 4 of Tanto Cuore featuring beermaids and they are re-releasing Set 1 so you should pick it up then and not now".
chronomeister:  End result: Got Girls und Panzer OVAs, Set 2 and 3 of Tanto Cuore, and a new pair of shoes. Didn't get Slurpie cause all the locations sold out.
chronomeister:  How my day went: 7/11? Oh that means free Slurpie. But the closest one is 40 minutes away. I can't just go for that. Could pick up a new pair of shoes, but it's still not enough. What's going on in the convention center... An anime convention? OK let's go.
Bootkiller:  This is what I get for mentioning that Tokyo ESP has a flying penguin...
Zaku:  someone stop me from drinkin
Bootkiller:  Bloodborne looks fuckin' sick though.
Bootkiller:  On a related note, I think Nintendo did the best this year, out of the big three. Then again, all it takes to do that is to show more than mostly CG trailers and mostly nothing.
Bootkiller:  I didn't realize at first that the smash anime thing for Palutena's intro was made by SHAFT. That's pretty cool
qPenguin:  CAPCOM STOP
qPenguin:  Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha ... ff3hwi9b-Y
Zaku:  heh I cap'd that as soon as I saw it
chronomeister:  Nanana's Buried Treasure episode 07 confirmed: Best episode of season
chronomeister:  Damn, they had the Galactic Brofist but they cut the panting short.
chronomeister:  I hope it has the Galatic Brofist and more importantly the one minute of Takuto and Suguha panting.
chronomeister:  ()~ KIRABOSHI!
Bootkiller:  WOO The Star Driver Movie has finally finished being subbed. Time to watch the shit outta that
Zaku:  I miss university download speeds already ;_;

A Britannian who was living in Japan at the time, Lelouch, vowed to his Japanese friend Suzaku that he'd destroy Britannia. Years later, Lelouch is in high school, but regularly skips out of school to go play chess and gamble on himself. One day, he stumbles on terrorists 11's who've stolen a military secret and is caught by a member of the Britannian task force sent after them, who is Suzaku. As the rest of the squad arrives, Suzaku is shot for disobeying orders, while the military secret, a young girl, gives Lelouch the power of Geass, which makes anyone obey any order. While Suzaku is secretly made the pilot of Britannia's brand new prototype Knightmare, Lancelot, Lelouch becomes the masked Zero to lead the rebellion to destroy Britannia once and for all.

Advanced placement into a school of higher grade proof-reading is determined by the results of the Promotion Test strictly for class type.

With the power of the uniform, the student body president, Satsuki Kiryuin rules the students with unquestioned power and fear. Satsuki holds the secret to the "scissor blade" and Ryuuko confronts Satsuki to gain information but... Was their encounter a mere coincidence or fate? The clash between the two will soon consume the whole academy!

9:25 - Servant X Service
Lucy's parents had a very hard time picking a single name for her when she was born. Because of their indecisiveness, they decided to give her over a dozen different names.

But her reason is to seek revenge against the person who legalized her ridiculously long name. Being a civil servant is not an easy job due to dealing with many angry citizens, facing different challenges, and having to put up with wacky co-workers each day. However, Lucy is determined to do whatever it will take to get her revenge.

Preview Night Spring 2014 Results

Alrighty, here are the results of the Preview Night we had as the last meeting this semester! Sorry about taking a week to get this done, as finals week gave me some non-finals related issues.

For those who don't want the specifics, the final results are as follows:

8.19 - Black Bullet
7.97 - Hamatora
7.76 - Servant X Service
7.65 - Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (Irregular at Magic High School)
7.64 - D-Frag!
7.19 - Hitsugi no Chaika (Chaika: The Coffin Princess)
5.23 - Sidonia no Kishi (Knights of Sidonia)

And now the specific results, in order of showing. Other than Hitsugi no Chaika and Sidonia no Kishi, all shows had their first episode shown at Preview Night. These two shows mentioned had their second episode picked.

Once again, comments will be included, as close to the written spelling, grammar, punctuation, bolding and underlining as I can muster. I use semi-colons to separate multiple comments by the same person. Read at your own risk. I assume there aren't many English majors at SPAMM...

Servant X Service - 17 scores, average score: 7.76
6 - Not really my kind of anime
8 - Starts slow and picks up the Humor quick; mood hair; that eccelated quickly x2; He is good with people
6 - avg slice of life
7 - Nice characters, but not a great hook. Might get old quickly.
8 - Dat name
8 - Silly, reminds me of working!
No score given - Not here for this one
No score given - I never thought I'd see a show about the civil sector. Good practice for real world disappointment, save for all the moe tropes. Frankly, I don't see the point. If the show actually stopped and decided what it wanted, slice of life or plot-driven narrative or comedy, the execution would be much more effective. Okay first episode
9 - I liked this, reminded me of Working. It's really funny!
6 - This is cute, not sure where it's going; It may make a cute slice-of-life; I worry about it being boring
9 - Great replacement for Working!!
8 - Might be cool, has potential
9 - Working-esque and good portrayals of jerks.
7 - not quite as good as Working, but good.
8 - good, but Might get old after a while
8 - working feeling with a different atmosphere. if it picks up a little in pace then defenitly a good option for the schedule

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (Irregular at Magic High School) - 17 scores, average score: 7.65
9 - The amount of magic shenanigans was sufficient.
6 - magic tech is kind of interest; unneccary ranking system is unneccesary
9 - a good amount of action/SoL, picks up at 3rd episode
6 - Bland Characters; nothing new happening. Rather just rewatch Darker than Black
9 - Pretty magic effects; Cool they're self aware of bro-sis weirdness
9 - the programmer in me loves the description they give for how magic works; intriguing main character; Naruto can't hold a candle to these magic ninjas
No score given - Not here for this one
No score given - I hate first episode exposition dumps that last only 2 minutes. It's a lazy means to explain why the world has changed. This usually incurs an entire episode exposition dump about people, places and events. Okay, but it comes at the price of zero emotion. If the creators don't care about what is going on, why should I? The fight was good, but 2 out of the 24 minutes is not worth it.
8 - Looks interesting, but occasionally awkward
8 - Tatsuya seems a bit arrogant; Onii-sama!?! Little bit of an Angel Sanctuary - The set-up seems pretty good and the pacing is a little better than the first show
7 - It has potential, but I'm worried about it's speed.
6 - A little too incest-y, but could definitely be good
5 - It was an exposition more than anything else, so I'm not sure
10 - i'd love to see this as slot 2-3
9 - a persona-esk main character in a magic-tech setting. seems promising

Hamatora - 17 scores, average score: 7.97
9 - I dig it.
6 - Darker then Black nock off
9 - Nice premise with good style. A little derivative, but could be fun.
7 - Really odd banter, so random; cool powers; Neat activation; LSD!
9 - reminds me a bit of Darker Than Black; interesting characters/powers
No score given - Not here for this one
No score given - Good first episode. However, I feel as if the show should choose either to focus on PI jobs or minimum powers. It's a good start, but needs a better focus.
6 - Meh, not too interesting.
9 - I like the action aspect; - strange camera angles; Smart humor; Worry that all the action is in the first ep.; Fast-pace in a good way
10 - That was AWESOME!
6 - It's alright
8 - What.
8 - Odd, has potential; Also I called what was in the safe.
9 - Fun, Fast paced; Perhaps a 6th slot.
7.5 - I love the animation in this, but the randomness is a little more than I'd expect.

D-Frag! - 18 scores, average score: 7.64
8.5 - Random show is random
9 - Good characters with fun ideas. Looks like it would be interesting.
10 - Hilarious; Best little girl; Game Dev Club!; Ridiculousness highly acceptable
9 - cute, funny, I love making games so I can relate a bit
10 - saw the second half of this one
No score given - This shit is weirder than my private collection of [REDACTED] I found online. It doesn't take itself Seriously, and its straight-faced bait-and-switch humor really works to its advantage. Equal parts self depreciative and stoic fun.
3 - No! Too stupid to keep me watching. Absolutely not!
5 - Hyper extended Love Chuunibyo-Cromartie High School mashup on energy drinks? Not my style, but I could see how some would enjoy it
8 - I don't know what this is, but I like it.
8 - Crazy, violent, would watch.
10 - Fucking Awesome
10 - great showstopper 4th slot
9 - hilarious! shananagans!

Black Bullet - 16 scores, average score: 8.19
10 - funny and interesting character; nice Balance of action; much more to come
7 - Nice concept, too many comparison to Attack on Titan. Not bad but save for Spring at earliest
7 - Interesting Mask-guy
7 - I love the villain
10 - I approve.
No score given - Eh. Cliché + unoriginal, but competent.
9 - Looks really cool!
6 - Similar themes to Attack on Titan; Not necissarily bad, just interesting; I don't feel there's anything special or unique about the show, especially cuz we showed AoT already
8 - Interesting concept.
9 - Pimpin; Attack on Kaiju
8 - I want to see more of this

Hitsugi no Chaika (Chaika: The Coffin Princess) - 16 scores, average score: 7.19
8 - Interesting. Collection anime kinda like Inuyasha, but less annoying.
6 - Get the thing for the stuff; Neat juxtaposition of setting and technologies; Might have too veiled a backstory with all the standoffs? Check pace; Speech impediment neat
7 - adorable, mysterious; personal favorite
8 - I would be okay with this one, its great but I'd rather have Black Bullet
7.5 - Meh, looks different and cool, but the way the girl talked was really annoying.
7 - The enemy is the main character?? Ganondorf, wtf are you doing here? lol; EGL w/a BFG; Could be interesting, if it follows the bad guys
8 - Unintentionally funny, kind of hard to take seriously at times
8 - If I could only pick one show from this list to show up next semester, this is the one
8 - #swag
7.5 I'm curious but unsure how much I will like it

Sidonia no Kishi (Knights of Sidonia) - 15 scores, average score: 5.23
4 - Hard to keep track of people; Little context
6 - interestingish
2 - Unsettling. CG animation, crazy monsters, and crazy masked/bear characters. No one has a personality. Very underwhelming.
5 - Offputting with 3D cel-shading style; Really odd setting; Framerate feels odd; New society adjustment looks interesting; Gauna discomforting (squirmily germilies); Bear-woman-robot!
4 - I hate the art style, I feel like there are better mecha shows
5 - I really enjoyed the plot/ideas of this anime, but the art style was distracting
5.5 Seems like a cool story, but the animation annoyed me. It just seemed to robotic.; I'M IN SPACE! :)
No score given - I'm not sure if I care for the animation/art style - but that's a personal thing. The movements seem robotic and stiff in some parts. Srs business Super Troopers? War/Mecha anime isn't my thing, so I feel like I can judge whether this is good or not. I'd pass, personally.
10 - Pacific Rim: IN SPACE
6 - I'm in space!
3 - didn't particularly care about it

Mitsuwa April 26, 2014

Cripes Bejeezuz I forgot to say what time to meet. 9:00 a.m. sharp

Hello everyone! On April 26, we will be taking a trip to Mitsuwa. For those who are not aware, here is the website :

It is a lot of fun and good food. After Mitsuwa, we will go to Woodfield Mall so there can be something for everyone.

If anyone has suggestions for where to have dinner, let me know.

Please post by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 25 if you are going.

When: Saturday April 26th, 2014.
Where: McGregor Parking Lot at 9am sharp

So in this thread, let us know
1. if you will be going,
2. if you need a ride/offering rides

If you are offering your car, please say how many people you can take. We will be giving drivers some gas money, but it is up to the drivers to obtain more gas money from passengers if need be. We probably won't be able to cover all gas and toll fees, but we can at least help out.

Passengers have the responsibility to let drivers know about any special accommodations.

Please be respectful of the scent rule. This means being showered and no excess cologne/perfume/body spray.

Zelda's Carriage:

-Very Squishy.
