Look to be set.
No, Panda, bamboo isn’t on the menu. A possible under-the-radar hit show from this Spring season is, though.
My first impression review of Shirokuma Cafe for Population GO.
Also check out our other first impressions from the Spring so far:
Plenty more first impressions yet to come.
Today features a worthy championship battle dressed in a Sweet 16 match. Both characters were able to advanced past the 1st round without much effort. Harry Potter zapped Peter Brand out of Hogwarts and Vriska Serket swiftly booted M’aiq The Liar off of Trollian. One of these characters will lay claim to being the last four-eyed geek standing. Who will it be?
On the Otaku bracket, an all-anime battle awaits two characters who also managed to make short work of their 1st round foes. Chihaya Ayase gracefully overwhelmed Maho Shirafune and Wild Tiger NEXT’ed Naruko Anjou. Will the aspiring Queen get past another male protagonist, or will Sternbild’s hero subdue another teenage beauty?
It’s a long shot, but help put my baby Chihaya in the next round! :)
Today marks the last day of voting for the first round of 32. Featured in the Otaku bracket is a battle of fresh, young faces between astronaut-in-training Maho Shirafune and determined karuta player Chihaya Ayase.
Finally, over in the Geek bracket, protector of the environment Swamp Thing takes on the revolutionary chimpanzee Caesar.
Vote for my baby girl, Chihaya. :)
Population GO is happy to announce that starting this Monday, March 12, we will be running Fan Favorite, our own version of March Madness, all throughout the remainder of the month!
32 of our staff’s personal favorite characters from the world of anime, comics, film, manga and video games (who made appearances in their respective mediums from beginning of 2011 to now) will battle it out tournament style until there is only one winner. That winner will be decided by you, our readers.
32 characters, 20 days, 5 rounds of voting, 1 champion…all decided by YOU!
Borrowers are tiny people who secretly co-exist with regular-sized humans. To survive, they live as hidden tenants within a human’s home, borrowing from them discarded-turned-essential items that would go unnoticed when missing.
One day, the somewhat peaceful life of the minuscule Clock family is compromised when a young boy moves into the home they inhabit and discovers the existence of their daughter Arrietty.
