Since most readers on here are above the age of ten, you may or may not be aware of Club Penguin, a children’s website which I admittedly visit once or twice a fortnight to mess around on. Nonetheless, Club Penguin feels lacking in something, and so it seems to me that we must update it for the anime and gaming generation, with an all-new spin on it entitled Club Prinny. On Club Prinny, one must input a number of sins in order to generate a damned soul, which is then sewn into a prinny. After customising your prinny, you can wander around the Netherworld performing tasks to atone for your sins, and generally serving Laharl and Etna. Special events include payday (once a year) and the night of the red moon, where prinnies who have atoned for their sins can finally leave the site. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: November 13th”
Welcome to the MANLY world of Tuesday Rumble, starring Akagi and Kaiji, two shows that demonstrate that GAR can be enjoyable too. We’ve also neglected a couple of features due to yet another week of laziness and lack of time, but we promise you won’t even notice. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: October 16th”
Dancing: the SJ way
Shounen Jump has covered everything from Go to tennis, but there’s one area it has yet to cover- the world of ballroom dancing. Fortunately, here at Tuesday Rumble we’ve got the situation covered, with a brand new series entitled Dance Off! Here’s a run down of what you can expect from the thrills and spills of the Dance Off world.
Misaki Shirou has never danced a step before in her life, but when her parents take her to a professional performance, she gets the dancing bug! Determined to become a professional herself, Misaki starts attending classes, but the road ahead will be tough. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: October 9th”
The Higurashi Cookbook
With the numerous cookbooks and cooking shows on TV, it can be hard for novice chefs to know just where they should start. Worry no longer, however, for we have just the solution- in the form of the comprehensive and easy to use Higurashi Cookbook! And here on Tuesday Rumble, we have been given exclusive permission to reprint extracts from this, the newest contender on the culinary literature market. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: October 2nd”
I hate to admit it, but last night I watched an episode of…Lucky Star. No, I haven’t been infected by neural parasites, but I realise that I needed to at least sample it before I write the KyoAni review I keep promising. Thankfully, it wasn’t as bad as feared, but nor can I call it good- instead it plays, and I remain completely indifferent to it. For this reason, I watch one episode per night right before sleep, for it gets my mind into shutdown mode.
Shounen Onmyouji X Dennou Coil
An unlikely pairing, perhaps, but this crossover was suggested with but one aim in mind- the alliance of Isako and Kazane. Whilst Isako takes the role of chief villain in the series, Kazane becomes her loyal underling, and together the two girls achieve the one thing most villains cannot- they actually manage to take over the world. Can anyone stand against the combination of futuristic encoder techniques and the onmyou magic of historical fantasy? Find out on Dennou Onmyouji, aka Shounen Coil!

The other day, I learned something which changed everything I once knew and held to be true. What was this profound truth, you might ask? Well, by using first person mode in the original .hack games, my sister and I have been able to look inside grunties, and they have been discovered to be hollow. What sort of life can we lead now that we know that grunties are mere frames with sheets stretched over them?
Useless Gaming FAQ Advice
Picture the scene- you’re so hideously stuck on a game that you just have to refer to a FAQ (or you’re just lazy), but instead of the detailed strategies you were hoping for, there is a statement so blatantly obvious it need never have been written in the first place. Here are some examples of the sort of frustratingly useless gaming advice you wish you’d never read. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: September 11th”
Before (or preferably after) you read this, be sure to take a look at all the great entries in the Animeblogger mascot competition (and yes, that one labelled Karura was from me). Personally, my money’s on Xephonia to win
Anime Nano: the RPG
The other day, a random remark on the Anime Nano forums gave birth to the idea of it being an MMORPG rather than a blog aggregator, and of course, me being me, I couldn’t help but think “where better to explore this idea than Tuesday Rumble?”. So, without further ado, let us explore Anime Nano: the RPG! Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: August 14th”
Chevalier: Deleted Scenes
Ever felt that there wasn’t enough to Chevalier? Maybe you just wanted the HARD GAY scenes to be shown onscreen? If that’s the case, then you won’t want to miss this exclusive look at the scenes that never made it into the broadcast version.
- Orleans’ final HARD GAY with Broglie.
- An extended flashback about the intimate relationship Teillagory had with his son.
- A lengthier explanation as to why Robespierre suddenly had to leave this world.
- Teillagory training young d’Eon and Lia with his old antique.
- A hilarious “light” segment in which d’Eon desperately tries to avoid Anna’s pursuit through the city.
- Increased screen time and back story for Giuseppe and Lorenza.
- More convenient escapes by carriage.
Sadly, Louis and Broglie doing the deed will never be made available, due to potential audience trauma. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: August 7th”
(For some reason, the anime blog scene has been overtaken with ideas about how to find love (in the 3D sense), and so I will impart a small bit of advice to the guys- go to dance lessons. I know you’ll now be thinking how much less appealing this is than some MANLY team sport, but let’s just think for a moment about which sounds more HARD GAY- getting into a close hold with a (hopefully) beautiful woman, or getting naked in the locker room showers with ten other guys?
Anyway, the advantages of attending dance lessons are as follows-
- Women will always, always outnumber men at the lessons. That means you get your pick of single ladies (note: do not try to compete with the good looking male instructor).
- Women will be impressed if you can dance, since it’s a rare skill among men.
- If all goes well, you’ll know how to dance in plenty of time for your wedding.

If your sensibilities are not easily offended, you may find Sexy English amusing. A video intended to help Japanese speakers learn slang terms for intercourse and genitalia, it doesn’t show anything explicit, but it should still be considered NSFW.
Oh, and apparently a Tsubasa OVA has been announced. The only hope for it being any good is to not have Bee Train “animate” it (then again, Production I.G.’s Tsubasa movie was hardly stellar).
Bug Master revisited
41 weeks ago, the very first Tuesday Rumble brought us Bug Master, an imaginary edited version of Mushishi. Now we return to expand on that idea with the 4Kids version: Bug Master ~Gotta Catch ‘Em All! Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: June 12th”
