Guess what today is! It’s Moeronpan’s 4th anniversary! I was actually really surprised when I saw the notification. This blog started as a way for me to procrastinate during my university years. Since then, I’ve invited Ariana to join me, graduated, started a dumb webcomic, moved to Japan, started working full-time, and fallen in and out of various fandoms (remember when I used to blog Hetalia all the damn time? Remember my Vocaloid PVposts? Vocaloid is still one of my main fandoms though (…hence this review of course) but man is it hard to keep up with). And, of course, ran out of a lot of free time which makes blogging series really difficult for me. I don’t want to quit Moeronpan, and doing the anime seasons First Impressions is still a lot of fun for me, for better or worse. But, don’t worry! Even though I didn’t blog anything this season again, there are some shows I am definitely taking on next season, including one I’ll be co-blogging with Ariana.
That has nothing to do with this review, I just thought some kind of mini-speech was in order considering this milestone. I’ve heard that the average lifespan of an anime review blog is two years, but we’ve passed that twice, even if we’re not the most jam-packed review blog out there (which is my fault. I’m really grateful for Ariana’s content).

And so, on to the really overdue review for the Gumi nendoroid.

Such a bright and energetic box too!

You’ve probably noticed the huge lack of Vocaloid content on here lately. The Vocaloid posts always seem to take me ages and to be honest I’m not even sure how many people really look at them. And since I didn’t do them that regularly, a lot of really awesome songs and videos slipped through the cracks. Since I love gushing about Vocaloid stuff¬† but wanted an easier way for me to do it, I’ve decided to devote my Tumblr account to this rather than using Moeronpan.¬† If you’ve got a Tumblr, follow me! If you don’t, it doesn’t matter, you can look! Ahoge Power will probably mostly blog Vocaloid related things – mostly spur of the moment I Just Heard This Song and it was Awesome Please Listen to It, although it won’t be Vocaloid-exclusive, I dork out about a lot of things.
Basically bla bla I now have a WordPress and Tumblr, both are different.

Whew, this is a little late. There’s been quite a few awesome songs lately (Hatsune Miku Append was released a few weeks ago after all) but the really impressive MADs weren’t quite so thick and fast. There were, of course, as usual, the attention-grabbers though.

Should I make this a monthly feature or once every two weeks, or just stick to the ‘whenever I feel like it’ routine I am currently doing? In any case there’s been some really nice songs and videos these past few weeks….so let’s take a peek at some of my favourites.

Miku and Bellarus...one hell of a meeting.

Miku and Belarus...one hell of a crossover.
