Mahou Shoujotai ( 魔法少女隊アルス )

Mahou Shoujotai Poster

Mahou Shoujotai follows the adventures of a girl named Alice through a magical world. At first she gets herself and her friends into trouble and things are very light-hearted at the beginning of the series. The story takes a quick turn around the middle and comes to a fairly climactic ending. The one thing I can say is that they keep throwing wrenches into the works to keep you interested. Nothing really follows logically other than the fact that you’re pretty sure at the end of the whole thing everything will be alright.

The series comprises forty episodes at about 5 minutes per episode. The fansubs I’ve watched are actually about six and a half minutes each because they have a header that explains bits of the translation that might not translate well to English speakers. All in all I’d have to say this series was great. There was great lore, a great heroine and a great supporting cast. All of the important characters have their own motivations and story arcs which are given their due time.

I even appreciate that this isn’t a fanservice anime in the least sense. It sticks to the story at hand and I was riveted. I ended up watching many episodes in a row.

I’d give it 4 out of 5. Check it out for sure.

Only Criminals Pay for Movies

You Might Have Just Bought a DVD, But We Still Think You’re a Criminal

This kind of crap is a source of frustration and confusion for many of us. Some of us even find it amusing that the MPAA places advertisements preaching the perils of piracy at the beginning of movies we’ve paid for. The fact of the matter is, most of the time a pirate will remove these warnings so downloaders are in fact, never bothered with this crap.

So at the end of the day, the only people bothered with anti-piracy propoganda are people who have paid to see the now de-valued material.

Will the MPAA ever “get it”?

A Black Spot on Jupiter and NASA

Now, this story comes from a site called, “Enterprise Mission.” Something about that name discredits it just about right away.

I found it fascinating, however. Apparently by plunging Galileo into Jupiter to avoid causing damage, NASA managed to ignite the Plutonium 238 fuel and create a nuclear explosion.

The article argues that this explosion atomized some of the atmospheric contaminants including carbon, which formed elementary carbon creating a dark soot spot on Jupiter that had not been there before.

There’s even a little intrigue because it’s all supposedly only documented by the hobbyist community. That seems a little shady to me as well. I think I’ll look into the details if I have the time but it’s an interesting read nonetheless.

A change of format

Since I’ve had my fun in coding my own weblog and I don’t seem to have the time to make one as nice and complete as some of the projects I’ve seen on the Internet I’ve chosen a script I think I can deal with.

Chotto Hen - My old page layout.

So you may notice my weblog will change its look a bit while I fiddle around with the settings of this new environment and make it my own.

I’ll try to get the ShoutOuts working again as a part of this new engine – but if I can’t add it in a way that works, I may just leave it out and post all of the old shouts as part of a post.

Bye for now…
