I've been waiting to see a parody of Lucky?Star but... Not like that!
Do not want? butbut... his choreography is so good. Not his dancing, but having the various props and whatnot arranged so he can costume-shift and keep up with the original. He's not even remotely trying to be any kind of moe, which is what makes it funny, it's just all the relevant visual bits. Kind of reminds me of Tom Stoppard's 15-Minute Hamlet, which is actually a 13-minute play with a two-minute encore. Same kind of pick up the prop, wave it at the aduience, and move on! timing.

Oh yeah, and his sunglasses are too funny.

It's not hard to translate it. It's hard to get the correct japanese to begin with to translate from and it's only a best guess. There is a very high chance the translation will change when the official lyrics are out. Everyone believes they have the correct lyrics and none of them match. I can tell you some people's lyrics are clearly wrong though as it is obvious and impossible. (looking at you 4chan.)

One negative point about a.f.k though, I think they recompress the audio, it is never as good as the raws or other groups’ audio, sometimes I have even ended up remuxing their AVIs with the audio stream from a raw because it grated when listening on headphones.
No, this is a known, frequent problem with the raw that is normally gotten. The issue is with the Japanese encoder and most people (95%+) cannot hear it and therefore can't fix it.

Competition is only good when the competition is watchable.

Just the common japanese p2p viruses that are seen all the time. Nothing new.

I knew it is nothing new.

But one case of paranoia deserves another in return. You can't disprove the virus writers are being anti-moe like Kaio-onesama. Isn't paranoia wonderful?

Yes in fact I wrote the virus. The reason was I am so anti-moe I want all those who enjoy it to suffer. *Looks at Sig*, "Ah goddamnit, not again", well looks like I'm a target for my own virus now.

I always considered this one to be more visually impressive, if only because you can see how good the guy is at drumming.

Wow the guy's drum beat is so intense its drowning out the song. So much more impressive than the actual song itself when the percussion is in the forefront (as it stood I never got to appreciate the drum portion of the song, nor did I really notice it existed, because Aya Hirano's voice and the synth was isolated and the drum beat very far in the background). Very cool.

Impressive... I've never messed with one of those arcade machines... is it able to score the stick clicks as well as the drumbeats?

This explains my two sons stomp the crap out of me in the Rayman's Raving Rabbid musical sequence on the Wii (which parallels this type of thing).... they've had a lot of taiko drum training.

Except that subtracting one channel from the other will strip out anything that was in the center channel, which included a ton of instruments.

Haha, that comment made my day.

I am gonna wait for a.f.k. myself, but I though it would be nice to mention this release to anyone following the fastest sub.

OMG.

Could it be that they were behind the Kanon viruses too?!

Wee. Well-done, Kaio-chin. Others have taken up your crusade against KyoAni.

Last week, we had Street Fighter parody and it's Tekken parody this time round! The character Kona-chan is using appears to be Craig Marduk from Tekken4/5. Her opponents' characters look familiar, especially the orange & blue outfit one which looks like Eileen from Virtua Fighter 5.



Above, you see the first opponent Kona-chan faces. Notice the YRP on his tshirt? That would be a reference to Final Fantasy X-2 YRP (which stands for Yuna, Rikku and Paine, the 3 main characters).

Overall, I agree I enjoyed Episode#2 more.

I wish you were linking me to a real life Kona-chan playing the game.

Still, if we're getting these kind of references in the second episode --- you just gotta think what'll happen in the next 22 episodes.
