It’s the reverse harem, shoujo version of “Library Wars,” and I love it. — thoughts on “Nil Admirari no Tenbin” (sub)

(Edit: Audio fixed.)

WAIT! This is a recording, but please don’t click away if they aren’t normally your thing!!

I think I may have actually hit a stride! (WHAT?? ME?? NO WAY! Well, give it a minute first…) I recorded this a few days ago when I was having some trouble with my wrists and was feeling a bit blue because I had so much I wanted to convey about Nil Admirari no Tenbin and found myself frustrated by my own limitations. When I couldn’t type, though, I decided to speak about it.

From now on, any solo podcasts I produce will follow a more casual flow like this and will focus on a single topic or show instead of bouncing all over the place. The length is also shorter, and I feel like that makes it more accessible.

Even if podcasts are not your thing, I do REALLY hope you’ll give it a listen because I have SO much I want to share about this title and about the otome-based reverse harem subgenre in general.

And so, here it is!

ALSO! If you’re interested in that AMV I mention at the beginning of the podcast, here it is below:

Do you have anything to share on Nil Admirari no Tenbin or the otome-based reverse harem subgenre? Also, can you teach me how to pronounce “Nil Admirari?” Let me know in the comments below, and have a good one, guys.

My “not-ani-blogger-but-totally-ani-friend” Chronic* finally agreed to be a guest on the podcast! Basically, we did what we always do, but in front of a (really bad, to be honest) microphone. Please rest assured that I’m looking into a new and improved mic! (*^^*) In addition, I had much more that deserved verbal rambling, but I tried to keep the rest short because Chronic and I spent a great deal of time discussing The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. What do you think about the movie? Let me know in the comments below!

*About Chronic (and written by me from “his” POV), for interested parties…

  • -glorious hair
  • -quiet drunk
  • -telling you how it is
  • -enough common sense for the both of us
  • -who are you?
  • -dandere
  • -don’t care that I’m a twin (but everyone else does because it’s cool??)
  • -spaghetti is not my forte
  • -don’t make me drive the car
  • -retired WoW addict (for now)

Podcast Notes:

I should first like to clarify that I had a brain malfunction and am in no way implying that Funimation didn’t already record (and release in theatres) the BB:BOA dub. Clearly, they’ve done that. But, come on, Funimation. DVD copies, please.

Please, please forgive me for rambling about otome!! To skip this portion, jump from 11.56 to 23.40! I didn’t mean to!! (T-T) I meant to be concise, but it just got away from me~~!! (Well, I guess I’m living up to the Otaku Rambling moniker, though…) ❤ *hugs for all!* Clearly I need to make more otome posts. I didn’t realize how many I had played!! Look for more otome reviews in the future; apparently, I have a lot of material!!
