New Orleans - Jackson Square

I recently passed through New Orleans a few weeks ago when visiting my cousin. We made our way through the French Quarter and the main square. Here are some pictures that I took while passing through. Mostly we just passed through Jackson Square to grab a bite to eat before the long road trip to Mississippi.

For those who don't know, Jackson Square is the oldest part of New Orleans. Built in 1721 it was known as the Place d' Armes after the famous park in Paris but after the battle of New Orleans in 1815 it was renamed Jackson Square after the U.S hero and future President, Andrew Jackson.

Anime: K-ON!!

There's so much that I could say that raves about K-ON!! I could talk about the fun loving characters including the absent minded Yui and the timid Mio. I could talk about the stories about the innocence of youth and the aspirations for the future. I could even talk about the music, how it literally takes over the show, not simply due to it's quantity but it's quality as well.

I could go on for hours, but to sum it up, K-ON!! is Awesome.

Anime: Heroman

Stan Lee is making an anime.

Nothing more needs to be said other than Stan Lee is making an anime.

Well no, a lot more could be said, but that's the most important part. I mean how often do you get one of the greatest Comic writers of all time to sit down with Japanese anime producers to make an American stylized anime about a boy who repaired a toy robot and becomes a hero to save the earth from a ruthless alien invasion? Not often enough.....

Anime: Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Anime’s, I’ve concluded, fall into a few distinct categories when it comes to their balance between plot and character.

Strong Plot and Strong Character – Bleach , Ookami Kakushi
Strong Plot and Weak Characters – Mai Otome
Strong Characters and Weak Plot – Arakawa under the Bridge, K-ON!

Anime: Kaichou wa Maid-sama

I can't say that I'm a huge fan of romance anime's. They just haven't been something that I've been interested in before. I think the first one I saw was CLAAND, which was OK for the first few episodes but after that it just went downhill and I couldn't watch anymore after that. I have to say though, that Kaichou wa Maid-sama has restored my faith in the genre.

Anime: Katanagatari

This is the formula that all anime producers should remember:

(N + S) * EA / P^2 = K

Translation:

(Ninjas + Swordplay) * Epic Artwork / Plot^2 = Katanagatari

Anime: B Gata H Kei

Most romance anime's are the same these days. They shy male lead is placed in unusual circumstances that leads to plenty of panty shots, and screams of the main female lead. Comedy ensues. While this formula works 90% of the time it does get tiresome after a while seeing the same thing over and over again. Which is why B Gata H Kei takes that formula and turns it on it's head.

You still have your shy male lead, but this time he's being perused by a horny girl whose goal is to have 100 sex partners before she graduates. ^.^

Anime: Working!!

I have to say that if it wasn't for K-ON! I wouldn't be watching Working!!. The quirkiness of the slice of life genre just wasn't something that I found myself fond of. But ever since I watched the first episode of K-ON! I've been hooked. Working!! is a fun little story about the eccentric employees of a family restaurant in Japan.

Anime: Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou

So lets say your browsing through some anime, trying to see if there's something good to watch that you haven't seen before. You stumble across a anime that perks your interest, it's about a young teen who attends a magic school and learns he's about to become the next Demon Lord. Ok that sounds interesting, you watch the intro, and it's full of battles and punk rock music. It sounds like it's going to be an action style anime. Ok it sounds really good, then you start watching.....and it turns out it's a harem......yeah, i didn't see that one coming either.
