A Small Preview (For Summer…or some season)May 29, 2008 at 10:46 am | Posted in Anime | 11 Comments
It seems like summer previews are already coming out for what people are blogging. My blog is too new and I feel like it’s still too early for me to do one of these but there is one series I absolutely have to bring attention to.
Though…I’m not even sure if it’s going to be in summer, fall or…whatever. I’m just hoping for summer.
Hakushaku to Yosei is an anime that takes place in 19th century England. Thus my interest is already perked because I’m one of those girls into that era. Add in some fantasy, adventure, and some shoujo elements, plus my positive bias toward anime based off of light novels and…well, this anime is definitely topping my “must-watch” list.
Then…add in Nana Mizuki.
Yeah…my interest in this series just freakin’ tripled.
So, because of Nana-sama, this whole review is going to be based around her…
Like…”God I’m so glad she’s playing Lydia. I can’t wait to hear her say that name!” Because for some reason, I absolutely love when Nana Mizuki says words and names with the letter “L” in them.
I was already interested in this series because…shoujo. I mean, I’m interested in any shoujo series that gets animated. And if it happens to be a light novel series…even better. See, I sort of hold the belief that light novels tend to have better storylines than manga, because the writer only has to worry about the storyline. The art is pretty much always left up to someone else. And if a light novel is popular, it’s because it has a good story. Pretty art and fanservice don’t do too much for light novels because pictures aren’t all that common.
Or maybe it’s just best to admit that I have a bias toward light novels because I’m a writer (or hope to be one). Yeah…that’s probably it. But I’m planning a whole post on light novels later, so I’ll stop that talk here.
But I think it’s really strange for me to be so into an anime that there’s almost no info about. All you can really find is on the ANN page. The website has a layout all set up, but none of the links are working. It looks like the site just got set up on the seventeenth. So…no info there.
I suppose people can now see why I am doubtful that it’s coming out in summer even though it was announced back in February. But maybe it is. I know it took a while for the websites during the Spring season to get their acts together.
Either way…Summer or Fall, I’m definitely looking forward to this series.
