Random Compiled Fate/Zero News

It’s been awhile since I did a random post… and since I had just posted a review of the latest episode of Fate/Zero, I figured that I might as well post some other random interesting things/news on Fate/Zero. =)

This post is basically random stuff related to Fate/Zero that I had stumbled upon on. Most of these stuff are stuff that you may have already seen before if you are an avid fan that track Fate/Zero news. But for others who usually don’t, this post is just to provide some fun reading for you.

Hope you enjoy the post.

Japan Spends More Money on Bread Over Rice

I came across this interesting (but rather random) article and though I’d share it with you guys.

Seems like Azuma from “Yakitate Japan!” can rejoice as a recent survey done in Japan has showed that Japan households spend more money on bread over rice.

“The average household spent £214 on rice last year, marking a 4.1% drop in rice purchases compared with the previous year.

Meanwhile, spending on bread rose by 0.2% to £218 per household, according to findings of an Internal Affairs Ministry survey.”

I’m definitely skeptical over how the survey was conducted and how accurate it is but… I think it’s interesting to note that there definitely is an increase in bread consumption in Japan.

So my question to you is, what’s your bread consumption like? How often do you eat it?

Personally, I grew up eating rice and I’ve only started to eat bread everyday out of convenience.

If I were left with a choice of either having rice or bread for the rest of my life, I think I would have to stick with rice. What about you?

Short Preview of Spring Season 2012

It’s this time of the year again where slowly every anime-blogger will think about writing previews for the Spring-Season. And like with every season some people will look at the new animes and ask: “Isn’t this season worse than the past ones?” And I’ll say: “No, it could be worse.” Because looking at Eureka Seven Ao I had a terrible nightmare. Or you could say it was more like an idea for all the money-hungry animation-studios out there: How about making anime-original sequels to popular finished manga-series? Let’s drag out all these classics and make generic sequels! Instead of releasing remastered versions of series like Nadia, why not make a generic sequel called Nadia 2 with a bland plot and flimsy connections to the original? Or Fullmetal Alchemist, manga’s finished as well as the anime-adaptation of it… but that shouldn’t stop BONES from making a generic anime-original sequel, should it? Or Naruto and Bleach, at some point the authors might actually stop writing this stupid shounen-mainstream-crap… BUT that shouldn’t stop any studio from making anime-original sequels regardless, right? I know, there are some issues with licensing and stuff but that’s nothing a top-notch lawyer can’t trick his way around, isn’t it? So, you heard it here first: Anime-original sequels to popular finished franchises – that’s the future!

Anyway, what this post is really about: I wrote some short previews for all the series that are either sequels of series I have seen or are manga-adaptations where I read the beginning at least (except in the case of Tsuritama and Hyou-ka, well, exceptions prove the rule basically…). That means I can speak at least with some confidence as to how these shows will turn out.
