Aku no Hana isn't airing this week. Horriblesubs just releases it about a week late.

I'll just leave it here:

Finished listening, and quite frankly I liked it. Most people didn't, though.

More experimental Electronica - think of Aphex Twin's "[Equation]" or maybe Amon Tobin's crazier work - I haven't heard him, but that's what people were comparing it to. One of the guys from the duo is responsible for the NeoTokyo soundtrack. Not that they're that much similar...

Sad to see that you lost interest tilpo but then again you've made some friends. Well put and well thought out post. /golfclap

Well about damn time, new update to Aiki, Come come Vanilla, Kimi no iru machi (as usual), ojousama wa oyomesama and blush dc.

Yesterday, I went to my friend's house and he has a moderate collection of mangas (all in French of course). Nothing too interesting and too special. I might say that he's your typical mainstream manga reader until something caught my eye. I haven't heard of this manga before and the authors name didn't ring one single bell. The front cover was intriguing because of the good drawing style. Intrigued by it, I borrowed it.

It's a manga made by Shonen and Izu called Lords of Chaos

 

Does it ring a bell? Probably not because it was just released this exact year in France.

 

As I skimmed through the pages, I was awed by the level of artistic work here. It is truly detailed and consistent throughout the manga. I was sure that this was made by a top level Japanese artist.

Here are some shots:

 

Then something bugged me. The drawings are too perfect, too detailed, too consistent. Is it truly a work of a Japanese artist? I mean you can recognise if it's a manga or a manhwa by the drawing style but this style doesn't correspond to any of those two. It might be more Japanese but it's strange at the same time.

I then began searching in manga updates there is a hit but not much really, no one is scanlating it, then I search again in Google and found something but first I want you to tell me if this style of drawing is made by a Japanese Artist or other?

 

The answer is in this spoiler

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

After a bit of searching in some French websites and mangaupdates, Lords of Chaos is a 100% French creation with the authors, Shonen and Izu being French.

Here are links that I found on the manga and one of the author

 

This makes me wonder, will Japanese publishers translate this French Manga to Japanese? I wonder how Japanese readers will react when they see that Manga is not only a Japanese thing any more?

Yeah I was quite right...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

doesn't feel as "Japanese", there is quite a bit of western influence that I feel from it.

I was JUST about to post that this sounds like Amon Tobin's more recent work [e.g. ISAM album] until I saw your edit. XD

You're definitely right about it not being everyone's favourite cup of tea. I wouldn't listen to it for pure enjoyment, but rather for the experience of new kinds of sounds and music.

 

Actually, as I'm listening to "sophi" I'm really liking the part near the end of the song.

 

 

 

Amon Tobin's earlier work was more drum'n'bass.

Its not a consumer product so obviously i wont ask for a sample.

Plus, it was cheap.

How does an ABX switcher work for hardware? I've used the software add-on for Foobar in Windows.

I would be interested in one mainly to compare amps.

The stepped attenuator didn't work as well as I'd hoped.

I'm planning on switching to an optically-coupled attenuator.

Holy Schiit! I've been stuck on the problem x^2=90-2x for the past 2 days, how do I do it?

Didn't you use wolfram alpha?

 

x^2=90-2x

=> x^2 + 2x - 90 = 0

=> 2^2 - 4*90 < 0

=> No real solution

 

EDIT: scratch that, I got the sign wrong

 

from second line:

x = (-2 ± sqrt(4+4*90)) / 2

x = (-2 ± sqrt(364)) / 2

x = -1 ± sqrt(91)

Stare at it until the answer magically appears. It's a technique I often try if I can't solve things.

At least do the math right. The discriminant is equal to 2^2-4(1)(-90) = 2^2+4*90.
