New Retro Wave has started a new talk show featuring interviews and music videos from some of the heavy hitters who are currently active in the Post-80s Synth Music Scene. Only three episodes have been made so far. It will be interesting to see where this goes as it develops.
The first episode is Gothic/Halloween themed. The "Nightmare on Elm Street" gag was pure gold. 😎
I had mixed feelings about the second episode. I'm not as familiar with this Josh Dally fellow. I'm sure he's probably a nice bloke and everything but, as a purist I feel that doing crossover titles blending contemporary pop with retro synth pop sounds kinda defeats the whole purpose of going retro in the first place. Let 'em Riot had a song with similar themes/lyrics that was way better than Dally's was at the end.* Although Futurecop! has had a distinguished run in the synthwave scene, they too have been guilty of major no-nos in some of their music in years past. I suppose that at the end of the day, it's a matter of taste. I am very particular.
In the third episode, I thought that the first song by the featured artist that was showcased was rather weak. Second song was okay, and the third one was really good. I think it was awesome that she actually came forward as a Type-O fan. Extra cool points just for that! 😎

In the 21st episode of the anime SHUFFLE!, Kaede tells Asa her feeling towards Rin-kun, the male protagonist and then cries in Asa's shoulders. The scene is as in the picture. I think it might use the symbolism from the novel, Red Rose, White Rose, by Eileen Chang, considering the following information:
The white rose in the novel is a supportive housewife for the male protagonist, Tong. She does all the household chores for Tong, yet Tong doesn't feel a passional love for her, which is similar to Kaede's situation. The red rose in the novel is a passional lover for Tong. She is not his legal wife, yet he enjoys being with her more than his wife. Asa hasn't done as much for Rin-kun as Kaede, yet Rin-kun loves her more than other girls. How do you think of this thought? Do you think it's right? Does the producer ever say anything about the design of this scene?
I've watched plenty of anime, but I've been looking around, and need some help finding some good anime with comedy and action...anyone got some ideas? or perhaps can help me out?
I've been looking on some websites, and found some decent stuff, but nothing i'm interested in...like I said, perhaps you guys could help! Thanks!
