We Have Met the Enemy, and… he’s a duck?

The April Fool’s joke to end them all… because it’s not a joke. Wargaming.net actually did this:

Beware the duck.

Toy ships in a big tub. They call this “Jacuzzi Mode.”

FYI, for reals, I’m up to Tier V American ships now. Should be able to grab my first Tier VI soon. It would go faster if I’d stop being so aggressive and getting myself sunk. My kill ratio is hovering around 0.4 (I sink someone else about 4 times for every 10 I get sunk.)

Daybreak on Hyperion (LN)

I know, I know, every story I run across is the greatest Light Novel ever. I refuse to say that about this story, because not enough of it has been written yet! More! MORE!

Why? Well, to start with, it’s not really a “Light Novel.” It’s an English Language original, and it’s written in the Western style. There’s no guessing who said something because the quote is before the mood text. Setting descriptions are complete, without being verbose. And the character descriptions aren’t simple tropes or tags, like “yandere” or the like. Hyperion is now in its third volume, and at a cliffhanger, not of danger, heroics, and derring-do, but of characterization and personal relationships. Something is going to happen. Just what is anyone’s guess.

Konosuba (update)

(Update: at the end of the last episode, a second season was announced.)

The Farce is strong with this one.

Kazuma, a gamer NEET (well, not quite, he goes to high school) boy goes out to buy a new game and figure; sees a girl about to get run over by a truck, and leaps to push her out of the way. Ends up dead, and he’s awarded (by a cute goddess) the chance to be reborn in another world as an adventurer, to fight the Devil King. “So, at least I saved the girl, and that was worth it.”

“Not exactly…” says the goddess. “The tractor would have stopped in time to miss her.”

“Tractor?”

“Farm tractor. Not truck. But you were convinced it was a truck so you ended up dying from shock.”

“It gave me a heart attack???”

“Well, no. But the shock caused you to pee your pants in fear. So the girl and farmer laughed at you.”

“Augh!”

“So then an ambulance was called. And the paramedics laughed at you.”

“I died from embarrassment?”

“Well, that didn’t kill you.”

“What?”

“Your parents arrived at the emergency room and burst out laughing. That gave you a heart attack and killed you!”

“AUUUUUUGGGHHH!”

Dayum

I’m just not sure what else to say. The current season is so crappy i’m hitting the unwatched pile. So, to start with, Girls Bravo.

The banana scene. Neither words nor stills do it justice. Just…Dayum. No nudity, but consider it NSFW….
