I fell way behind in anime in December due to the holidays and my lack of working out. Speaking of not working out, that month off my normal routine was killer. To quote Kagamin,
In the blink of an eye
Went up again
orz (and forgive, didn’t have the brain power to translate the haiku to an english haiku ^^;) *ahem* Anyhow, I watch a lot of anime while working out, hence the increase in backlog. Luckily I was able to recover in January… and man, there’s been some good stuff I’ve been missing out on!
Think I mentioned CHAOS;HEAD recently, but here’s some actual thoughts on the series ^^; Wish the main character wasn’t so annoyingly lame but then again, perhaps the story wouldn’t have had as much of a point otherwise. On the plus side, loved all the females… ‘cuz they all had swords ^^;; An interesting plot revolving around a warped sense of reality… Got me interested enough to check out the game. The ending seemed to come on a little sudden in the character development department, but I supposed a rushed anime plot isn’t exactly unheard of :P
Was hoping to finish the manga volumes I own before getting to the anime, but in the end I broke and fished off the series. I love nagi so I guess it’s no surprise that I enjoyed the anime. Unfortunately I didn’t quite pick up on everything my first time through so I plan to catch up while reading. Nagi’s great, always love cheering Tsugimi on, zange-chan’s forward advances… I love it!
Sekirei is epic. Well, epic fan service, but hey, it’s got more than enough plot to keep my attention. If you’re an oppai kinda guy (or gal), man, this is the show for you. And 月海 (tsukiumi)! Ahhh I love tsukiumi.
Powerful, nice touch of tsundere, touch of jealousy, classical way of speaking… *dies* Seems Movic release a tsukiumi figure in 2007… have there been others? I may have some hunting to do… ^^;;
Has another season been announced? From what I gather there’s a lot of plot left to cover… Thankfully I have the manga to fall back on ^^; Love the characters, so basically plot be damned, everything’s gravy for me at this point ^^;
一騎当千 (ikkitousen) Dragon Destiny
In the spirit on getting on with anime and not waiting to finish source material, I also started on ikkitousen Dragon Destiny. Previously I only let myself watch the first season since I’d more or less covered all the content in the manga. Another fan service fest, though with the added complexity of a billion characters and Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Not sure if I’m watching a DVD version or what but it’s been really… erhm… explicit so far ^^;; Only two or three episodes in but just the fact that Kanu got some time in the first episode has me happy.
明日のよいち (asu no yoichi)
Randomly decided to start this one and at least get something from the current season started. So far, lovin’ it! Immediately recognized 佐藤 利奈 (satou rina), the voice behind minami-ke’s haruka, again voicing an elder sister character. Something about characters who are removed from their natural environment and forced to adapt to a new setting… those sorts of shows always garner a baseline amount of interest from me. Add in the typical single guy surround by kawaii~ roommates situation ftw. washizu the delinquent reminds me of harima and I’ve taken a liking to him as well. Definitely going to pick up the manga now ^_^
Gak it’s really late again. Sorry for anyone looking for a figure review :P Though I will say, took some more pics so a review is looming!
