The Bonkurasu Brigade

The happy sugar-powered blog-warming party (according to the resident plum)

Osaka calls the shots round here.

Presenting our danchou: Osaka-chan.

After a whole lot of staring at alien CSS lines, figuring them out with non existant yuki-powahs, applying vasts amounts of untapped common sense, straightening kinks here and there, and generally being, well, bonkuras…
*pops champagne against pink shoujo background*
*champagne is taken from her. Reason: underage*
Eh, anyway, the main (and not as fun) purpose of this post is to introduce the blog to the world at large. Not ourselves, for that you can read my levelheaded introduction (fufu) and senbei-san’s screaming at why everyone associates his name with the wrong objects over at the header links.
(note: don’t listen to him when he says that we provide funny figure reviews. NO SADERS NO SADERS.)
Our focus is going to be primarily on figures and gunpla. And extreme senseless randomness, considering the nature of both bloggers.
Both of us cosplay, so while it may be hard to cosplay and take up the role of a camekko at the same time, we’ll try to bring you coverage of major events to the best of our abilities. Add to the mix bits and pieces of related news, and a sprinkling of local stuff, and you get our intended direction :D
This is an intermission picture. Senbei has a harem of his own. T_T
Oh, for those people who demand straight faced deep thought provoking discussion on headseams (i.e. are allergic to nutcases), we provide anti-idiocy (non lethal) weapons for rental.
The limited list are as follows (arranged in order of danger): Piko hammers, tomatoes, pellet guns, bricks, and sharp objects (nooooo). The use of such weapons, although humorous, should be used after the judgement of how absurd the situation is. Please consider my our general well being, for a whack too many on our skulls may cause further retard-nization.
And you wouldnt want that, would you? Would you…?
(The above paragraph is completely random and thus has low relation to the primary objective of this post)
I shall now attempt to explain what bonkurasu means for those who have not watched Azumanga Daiou.
Bonkurasu (Bonklers) is derived from the word ‘bonkura’, which, bluntly put, means blockhead. In Azumanga, Yomi uses the term to describe Osaka, Kagura and Tomo, adding the -su sound in reference to English grammar, making the term plural (“bonkura-su”)
AND WE GET THE BAKA BRIGADE! YAY. *takes on baka-ranger pose*
Hai, basic introductions out of the way, I shall now end by saying a mabushii hello to everyone (XD). Seeing as we’re both noobs round here >.> We also hope for the guidance of our blogging sempai-su.
Saa, let blogwarming commence~!

    welcome over to the community! I already knew sentinel from EOY 2006 and felt umehiko is a good cosplayer for yuki. Hence, I hope you two will continue to start blogging, have fun and most of all, enjoy yourself here.

    Cheers from first, a Singaporean blogger, and second, a fellow blogger!

    Welcome to anime blogging. Remember to join ANO in a month so as to spread your blog’s azudai love! :)

    YAY! Blogwarming party!
    First, see you around.
    Two, don’t take things too seriously. It’s okay if you cannot post as often as impz the trap. That part is just legendary.

    Third. ENJOY! Blogging is for fun!

    @ DrmChsr0
    Our resident plum is not edible when it comes in contact with sugar, or anything sweet.

    @ Impz
    hoho~ Thanks dude!


    I’ve been blogging (I have my own personal blog for my daily life) for 5 years now, so blogging is not an alien language to me. And I just love to disturb Impz the Trap occasionally over msn. HOHO!

    Oooh! A new blog with an easy to remember name! Not to mention a name from one of my all-time favorite anime/manga series. ようこそ。

    Uh, there’s not much for me to say, seeing that this is nothing new. Uh, join in AB’s IRC channel. It’s crazy. Ha ha ha! I’ll definitely add this blog when I have the time.

  15. kristalyamaki January 28th, 2007 8:16 am

    lol. I seriously laughed at the introductions! Hyper, lol. XD

    And when you said “Baka Brigade”, I was thinking of Negima’s “Baka Rangers”, but it seems that I was thinking of something else…

    Last but not least for now, congratulations on the blog warming.
