Stock Report: Death Note blew my ass out (and other stocks)

ASX Index for October 10th

A Word From Some Jabroni
It's been a while since I've done a proper ASX recap, so why break that trend? I got a few stocks to look at, and figured I'd update the index while I was at it, but that's about it.

In fact, it may be quite a while before I return to my glory days of recapping every single thing on the face of the earth, what with everything else on my plate, but for now this is good enough.. plus it means you, the viewer only get the important stuff, and not a bunch of filler that I forced myself to write.

Everyone wins!

Of course this also means that stocks will most likely be going up and down with no cause or reason. For example, above there's a ton of securities delisting, and I've only recapped two of them (in previous posts). That's just part of the tradeoff you have to accept if you want the bonus of me being lazy.

I will say this however, if you're wondering why HIGU took such a sharp drop, it's because the ending sucked ass.

(yeah I just realized now that I forgot to put the little arrows and stuff next to the share price.. I'll try harder next time. Please look forward to it)

Wow. They managed to take the least dynamic manga we can think of, and somehow turn out the most awesome anime pilot this season. Visually and audibly it was great. The OP and ED is roolz too. Likewise the BGM. We can't wait to steal to legally buy with money the OST.

Who's responsible for this? Because we at the ASX want to kiss them on the face.

Misa Amane predicts DNOTE stock to skyrocket.


Unfortunately what can be said for DNOTE cannot be said for the first episode of Negima!? While heads and tails over the Xebec "lol thx 4 $$$ suckerz!" to anime fans worldwide, the episode was rather stiff. Part of this can be attributed to understated (voice/animation) performances, and we hate to reference it and make all those whining fanboys from when this was first announced cum in their sweatpants, but the Pani Poni Dash'esque scene composition and slightly off-kilter comedic beats did not help matters.

Being the first episode and having a lot of information to get across (and us being complete marks for MSN) we won't hold this episode against them, and instead wait to see how things play out.


  • Did Negi's dad always sound like a girl? It's been a while since Mahou Sensei Negima, but Chamo and Ku Fei also sound different.

  • So is exactly what is going on? This looks like a remake, but I SWEARZ that I saw a posting on that said this was a spin-off of a new manga (complete with a cover from the forthcoming manga)

  • I liked how they managed to pepper in some of the character's extra details that don't pop up until later in the manga.

  • The opening credits made me want to fap off to Bible Black for some reason.


  • Negima's new classroom layout. No boom mics in view.


    Who would have expected this show to be a serious action series set in a war-torn country? Many thought this new season anime would be about the trials of a regular highschool student who at night transforms into a magical girl and fights demons with a set of futuristic pumpkins that have the ability to cut like scissors. Not so, apparently (although there's always time to weave in a subplot, guys).

    If that wasn't enough surprise, investors got the 1-2 punch when Pumpkin Scissors also happened to not suck. In fact, some were saying that it was actually "pretty good" despite the obvious lack of said scissors, pumpkins, or any kind of amalgam of the two.


  • Lt Spearhead gets my early nomination for MVP of the season.

  • What was it again? "We're with squad Pumpkin Scissors" or something?

  • How can they say the above with a straight face?

  • An artist's concept sketch of how Pumpkin Scissors could have turned out.
