Warning, there's a new SeiButa movie out.

Now, if you were searching on "Bunny Girl" you may have missed it. The title is "Seishun Buta Yarou wa Yumemiru Shoujo no Yume wo Minai"

The warning is that it will hit you in the feels hard enough to bruise.

RWBY Season 7 is up.

Well, if you were paying RoosterTeeth, it was up last week, but the first episode is free now.

And if you thought the crew would make it to Atlas and everything would be cool, well, you should know better by now.

New post on my writing blog (2)

It's not all Thud and Blunder.

I recently read the original Conan the Barbarian stories, and was pleasantly surprised.

It's Furry Anime Season...

... and I'm not talking Catgirls.

The Good is Beastars, which is about a Wolf working the stage crew of a high school's drama department, and Dwarf Bunny girl who is ostracized from the herbivore student body. Tensions are high in the school because a student from the Drama Club was recently eaten, so the whole school is on edge.
The Bad and the Ugly combined is African Salaryman. The less said about it the better. It's just shit.

Interestingly, both shows are CGI. Beastars uses it to great effect. African Salaryman uses it to produce even crappier than normal 2D effects.

There's also at least one Isekai that promises Beast People, but I haven't checked it out yet.

On the Fan service front, there's Kandagawa Jet Girls. Girls race on a river through the city on hydrofoil jet skis, with a "Gunner" who fires water-shots that can either degrade the jetskis, or the opposing girl's wetsuits. (This is described sarcastically by one of the announcers as a "Safety Feature".) There's one uncensored torrent that I know of by "HorribleOhys" that's worth tracking down.

Slightly interesting is "Rifle is Beautiful" about a girls high school rifle team. Of course, this being Japan, the rifles are just light guns that use a photoreceptive target system. (This is not a sci-fi show).

Both of these shows have in common the fact that their schools both have shut down the respective clubs, and our heroine is determined to resurrect them. However Kandagawa Jet Girls is FAR more exciting, and frankly, has a much better animation budget, and looks it. Rifle is Beautiful will probably be more about the Friendship because as someone who has shot precision smallbore rifle competitively in college, I have to say that it is the single LEAST exciting sport to watch ever invented, and doing it with flash guns is even less so.

BTW...

I wouldn't mind too terribly being on more people's blogrolls.

Ah, silence (Nearly)

So I showed off my homebrew cooling system a while ago. I was trying to get away from the crap Antec system I'd been replacing every year. The one part of that system left was the pair of cooling fans that I repurposed to blow through the radiator. One was the original cooler fan, and the other was an auxiliary fan they included for if I wanted to set up a push-pull system. The original fan was a little loud. Not too bad when the system was idling, but when going at full bore (say, after a reboot) it sounded like a jet engine. The aux fan wasn't too bad, except I think the bearing or a coil was going, because at idle speed, it started to make a rubbing noise and actually stopped.

Well, thanks to Amazon, I bought a couple of Redux Nocturna 1700 RPM PWM controlled (4-wire) fans, supposedly designed for pushing air through radiators. They arrived today and I installed them. Ah, the silence. At idle they're ticking over at 550 rpm, which is barely a whisper. At full speed, the whir is still quite tolerable, and it doesn't sound like the computer is struggling to not catch fire.

It was a bit tricky to find 4-wire computer fans, even on Amazon, because a lot of fan-makers include adapters to connect to the old molex power cables, and call it 4 wire.

A quiet computer makes a happy Mauser.

Now if I could just solve the random bluescreens.

Duck Tales, Woo-hoo-ooly shit!

I was really impressed with the pilot, and I was collecting the series, and watching it in dribs and drabs. And it was really, really good. But tonight I just finished the end of the first season and all that stuff that they had been tucking in edgewise around all the other episodes finally came together....

... and it was fucking awesome!

Even Donald got to be a badass (Thanks to a temporary electronic voice modulator that gave him a normal voice until it shorted out.)

Seriously, the payoff for the first season was worth every second. Highly recommended (even if belatedly.)

You're in a maze of twisty little plots, all different.

Okay, Kanata no Astra just threw TWO major curve-balls in one episode. I love that this show is just jam-packed with various SF tropes, but damn! They pull out a new one for each episode's cliffhanger.
