The ODEX Saga

Was just browsing the net and came across something like this:

After months of silence, ODEX strikes again!!! This time, on a larger, greater, international scale!

Right, they overstepped their boundaries and so their plans backlashed. This calls for a little celebration for the Singaporean anime community, although it still doesn't entitle them the right to download anime. Well, take things a step at a time. At least things weren't going that smooth for that mastermind-company-who's-behind-everything-unfortunate anymore. (They lost the case against Pacific Net, still refuse to admit defeat and continued with its appeals.)

Anyway, here is an interesting mockumentary created by an anime fan in protest of ODEX's actions to prosecute downloaders. It's downright hilarious. Lol, TenGins, Moonhub, rings any bells?

Hehe, got your fun? Somehow, ODEX's persistence to stop anime downloaders reminds me the typical Singaporean behaviour trait of kiasuism. But really, the ODEX saga just doesn't die, does it? If any, I would say it just got even bigger.

Hogwarts - Japan styled.

Just recently came across something like this on the net. Thought you guys might find it intersting (I did), and decided to do a post on it.

Taken from a Japanese programme, Let's Go to School, which is all about entertaining and surprising the visiting foreign celebrity, the few videos below features Daniel Radcliffe visiting a Japanese girls' high school. Although it's a Japanese variety show, you wouldn't really need to understand Japanese in order to understand what's going on. There's some English translation provided, if that assures you any. Just watch, it'll be really fun.

Anyway, you probably would have guessed, it all started with a lot of screaming.

Click and learn that the wierdness of Japan knows no limit.

After the screaming reception, Daniel is taken to a cooking classroom where he's shown a couple of magic tricks that i'm sure even you will be fascinated with.

Then, the next stop of surprises: the music classroom.

And then a 'normal' classroom, where apparently late students came from the closet.

Lastly, a Q & A session where the Japanese girls took great pain to memorise the questions and a last magic trick.

Right, after entertaining you guys, it's time you people return the favour and entertain me back with your comments.
