Funimation hosted their anime no Hulu (known for their obligatory adverts) which was an immediate turnoff for me. Since then I discovered Funimation is hosting anime themselves. A paid membership will get rid of commercials. Barakamon was the first show I added to my queue. I’ve also added other shows not available on Crunchyroll like Psycho-pass, Dangan Ronpa, and To aru Kagaku no Railgun.
My Tenso package arrived today.
I didn’t realized my CD was a Korean import until it arrived. Not that it matters as long as it’s not bootleg. The obi strip says “PONYCANYON KOREA.” The tracks are exactly the same. Inside there’s a sticker of the front cover art. iTunes Japan also has Kiki’s OST except it’s missing the last two tracks.
I replaced my 50″ Pioneer Elite plasma with an 80″ Sharp AQUOS LED. I like the picture better on the plasma–The picture was clear and bright at any angle. You have to be sitting directly in front of the LED to see clearly. Also, the Sharp’s color seems unnatural. It takes some getting used to. The Sharp is perfect for anime though. It’s nice watching Crunchyroll on a tv this big at 1080i. I’m using a Mac Mini. You might see it below the screen.
I love the fact I can watch Crunchyroll during my break at work. I’m not limited to watching on my phone either. I hook my Droid Razr to the TV using a HDMI to HDMI micro cable.
