Expectations’ Ill Effect: Knights of Sidonia

I looooooved Blame!, so I guess I need to start reading this now to see the difference. Though admittedly I never liked the animated series of Knights of Sidonia (I saw the trailer once). I really, really hated it when they merge the “old-school” style of anime (the hand-drawn ones) with CGI effects in one scene. It looks so off, or maybe it’s just me. But then, I’ve read Blame! and NOiSE, so for the love of Nihei Tsutomo I’ll watch it.

“A Kaleidoscopic Tour-De-Force” – Me and The Devil Blues

Too bad I only have the volume 1. I read it because I am very intrigued with the story; too bad it was discontinued. If I only knew. I saw the 2nd volume  a year ago in one of the thrift bookstores, but I didn’t buy it. I should’ve. Sigh. I still didn’t learn from my mistakes.

"Boys in Our Books"...


A deep obsession with his estranged father leads Gabriel down a dangerous, twisting path.

This is the best most terrible book I’ve read in a long time and I cannot recommend it to anyone.

When I was a little bugger, my mum had to ward off my attempts at touching the hot oven, that for unfathomable reasons held an incredible attraction. Until one day I succeeded, after which tears, blisters, bandages and a brand new My Little Pony heralded the end of an obsession. In a greedy crusade for the next, perfect read that would leave me feeling utterly mind fucked, I came across Father Figure.  Turns out it was exactly like that oven from my youth; fascinating, dangerous and above all…very painful.

I feel strangely empty and unsettled still. Haven’t been able to pick up anything else. Cheerful…

Sue interviews freefic author Aleksandr Voinov

Sue: First of all Aleks, I’d like to sincerely thank you and Marquesate for creating my most beloved story of all time… Tell me, did you have any idea while writing this that it would have this kind of impact on leagues of readers? Did you sense you had made something so special?

Aleks: Absolutely not. From my perspective, it was “just playing”, one of those crazy things you do to entertain yourself. We were posting some bits and pieces in a forum, and people were asking to read more, so we did. It built quickly from there, but the size and vehemence of the response left me largely baffled. By now, I kinda get it, but I don’t think you can manufacture this kind of response. It is driven by people recommending it everywhere.

Sue: Special Forces covers a lot of very…
