I've been a huge fan of time travel stories since I was a child, going back to the paradoxical conversation Rimmer and Lister have in the episode "Future Echoes" of Red Dwarf. Explains why I was so...

Forgive my intrusion, but while I do agree that Disappearance seems to lessen Haruhi's omnipotence somewhat, I don't see a huge continuity error regarding the Data Overmind (or DITE, or whichever...

Has anyone found a site selling the 2011 calendar (the Disappearance-themed one) for a decent price? J-List and YesAsia don't have it, and the only one on eBay is selling for a ludicrous price. I...

I haven't seen the Haruhi movie yet, so I can't comment on KyoAni's filmmaking skills, but I really hope they use the time and money to do some really great concert scenes. They wouldn't even have to...

I actually named my first electric guitar "Aki-chan" after Yui's voice actress, even though it isn't a Gibson, and even though K-ON! wasn't the catalyst to me buying one (that honour would mainly go...

I started playing the guitar a few months ago, and I can still only play one song all the way through, and I'm really sloppy with everything else. K-ON! wisely skipped over Yui's first few months of...

Yes. This is the episode I've been waiting for. An entire show focused around the music, around a performance. Two great new songs, with fantastic animation. No long cuts to static scenery. I really...

"Utauyo!!" is good fun! It'd be good to dance to, I think. I love the little "plucky" bit in the middle, for want of a better term. I really like the fact that K-ON!!'s songs don't all stick to the...

That's just typical music video logic. You see it all the time in real videos, where footage of the band actually playing the song is intercut with them staring moodily out of windows or whatever. A...

CoalGuys love doing this. I remember them translating "time machine" as "DeLorean" in an episode of Haruhi Suzumiya, despite Kyon clearly saying "TAIMU MASHIIN" in Engrish. Didn't stop my friend...

My local music store has a guitar that looks exactly like Gitah, although it's actually a copy. Can't remember what the brand name was. An Epiphone, maybe? To be a Gibson dealer, you have to dedicate...

Agreed! The original is my favourite song from the series (that intro riff is so much fun to play!), and I really like the more acoustic, sing-a-long version they did at the talent show. They should...

I was actually disappointed when the "Fuwa Fuwa Time" encore wasn't included on the LiveMix CD. It's the girls at their best, in their own Budokan, and not quite being ready to let go of their big...

While I like "Pure Pure Heart", it isn't my favourite song of HTT's. It's closer to the fluffy pop equator than, say, "Fude Pen ~Ball Pen~". Anyone noticed that the keyboard melody is very similar to...
