Comment on “Itain” Moe-Hanko Make Big Impression by Imyou:

I love this story… In theory, being able to register any image for personal use would allow for such creativity. I’d always thought this kind of thing wouldn’t be allowed though. Wikipedia for instance says of the jitsuin (legal, formal seal):

“The size, shape, material, decoration, and lettering style of jitsuin are closely regulated by law. For example, in Hiroshima, a jitsuin is expected to be roughly 1⁄2 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 cm), usually square or (rarely) rectangular but never round, irregular, or oval, and must contain the individual’s full family and given name, without abbreviation. The lettering must be red with a white background (shubun), with roughly equal width lines used throughout the name. The font must be one of several based on ancient historical lettering styles found in metal, woodcarving, and so on; ancient forms of ideographs are commonplace. A red perimeter must entirely surround the name, and there should be no other decoration on the underside (working surface) of the seal, though the top and sides (handle) of the seal may be decorated in any fashion from completely undecorated to historical animal motifs to dates, names, and inscriptions.”

    The article says it can be used for official contexts like banking, but a banking seal isn’t as high as a personal registered seal…

    Actually, it’s the opposite. Mass-produced ones aren’t unique enough for legal documents, which is why people have them handmade. They don’t do it themselves, largely because not everyone has the skill to carve kanji in mirror image, and also because despite this story, the requirements for a jitsuin are rather stringent (so it’s kind of like taking your own passport photo vs having it done professionally.)

    Gal Gun 2 is coming out in English, and you run around a school squirting girls with your “pheromone gun”

  • Splatoon Squid Sisters Invade NicoNico Tokaigi 2016:
    I thought the fighting Inklings were supposed to be kids and the Squid Sisters were adults? They look like kids here… C’mon, Nintendo! You made whatever Candy Kong ver. 2 was… Even just in concert, they should have done them like “taka-michi” does.

    I wish this site gave notifications for replies, because you’ll never see this. YES. All the Ranma 1/2 music and FMA. I listened to almost all the Slayers music in the 90s and pretty much memorized the lyrics before I knew Japanese well. I also liked the Rurouni Kenshin soundtrack, and it’s not that surprising the same Noriyuki Asakura did the music in Tenchu: Stealth Assasins. It had a feeling that could have blended into the margins of Kenshin too I think.

  • Koukaku no Pandora Really Opens That Box:
    Yeah, it’s a fun manga – I’ve imported and read the first 4 books. Funny that while both authors seem to love doing porn, at best this one gets a bit suggestive or puts girls in various costumes. I don’t think there’s any actual nudity in the series yet (maybe a butt somewhere?) But, it’s good soft yuri and girls vs big robots. Fans of the old Nuku Nuku OAV should like it.

  • Koukaku no Pandora Really Opens That Box:
    Unrelated, really. The taller girl is a full-body cyborg because of a childhood disease she had, which is rare because it’s really hard for people to get used to cyber parts. The shorter girl is an illegal combat android from a mad scientist sort, who can share time-limited android superpowers with the other girl when fingered in her crotch/belly port. The human (Nene) seems totally oblivious her friend (Clarion) is an android though and cuddles her incessantly because she’s cute.
