Special A – Episode 13

June 30, 2008 at 3:43 pm | Posted in Special A | 6 Comments

WTF? Did anyone else know about a new opening starting this week? Because it totally came out of nowhere for me. I mean…I try to keep up with news on all the anime I’m watching, but I didn’t hear anything about this. Though I guess it’s only natural considering how much everyone hated Special Days. As soon as they got the chance (mid way through the season) they changed it.

So, due to this surprise, I’ll do my thoughts on the new opening (and ending) first. I really can’t believe I missed the news on this. I messed up I guess. Teehee.

Um…if I call this the best anime-original episode ever will anyone disagree with me?

I was pretty hyped up all week, because I just knew this episode would be great. And I was right.

I think this episode actually surpassed my expectations (which were sky-high). And I was so excited about it that I had to write up my thoughts first and added my summary and the preview later.

Project: TTDMITS

June 27, 2008 at 11:43 am | Posted in Personal | 7 Comments

I think I mentioned this briefly in one of my Shugo Chara! posts, but I’ll mention it again for everyone who doesn’t pay attention. I’m spending this summer trying to improve my Japanese.

We’ll call this project TTDMITS, or Trying To Drive Myself Insane This Summer because that’s what’s happening.

A FairyTale Revisited (Part Two)

June 26, 2008 at 8:00 am | Posted in Shinshi Doumei Cross | 13 Comments

This is the final part of my two-parter overview of ShinKuro. This will likely be my last fangirling for the series unless there’s an anime adaptation.

“I will show you a ‘happy ending.’ Even if I were to disappear.” Haine kept her promise at the very end and gave everyone a happy ending.

So because of that happy ending even I have to stop fangirling at some point (unless an anime comes up of course).

Anime Girls: Mitsuki

So, in week number 6, girl number 5 is Koyama Mitsuki from Full Moon wo Sagashite (MANGA ONLY!).

Mitsuki became an orphan the very same day she was born and blames herself for the deaths of everyone around her. She tries to hide her grief and goes toward her dream of being a singer to fulfill a promise with her childhood love. Despite her own incredibly problems, Mitsuki is able to heal the hearts of others. She is only twelve, but her trials and wisdom make it easy to forget.

Full Moon anime and manga spoilers beyond this point.

Special A – Episode 12

Finally! I’ve been waiting for this since I first heard of an anime adaptation.

And guess what? They didn’t butcher it! In fact I think this is the closest they’ve followed the manga so far~!

Mistress Fortune – Chapter One

June 22, 2008 at 6:31 pm | Posted in Mistress Fortune | 6 Comments

As promised, I’m going to be blogging Mistress Fortune for the next 3 (or 2 really) months (even if I started out late).

Mistress Fortune is only going to be three chapters long. After that, Arina Tanemura is taking a break for a while (I’m guessing somewhere between 2-6 months). She’s worked on a manga for 47 straight months, and if you add in the next two chapters of Mistress Fortune, Arina-sensei will have been working for 49 months straight. Yikes.

This news explains why I thought the first chapter kind of felt like a one-shot. This also probably rules out any chances of an anime adaptation, so all our hopes still lie with ShinKuro.

Also, sorry that this post is so late. I totally spaced out on this until I got my issue of Ribon in the mail.

Shugo Chara! – Episode 37

Filler drama is crappy drama.

I’m pretty busy today (I have to convince my parents to lend me money and go out to find a new job!) so I’ll make all of this really quick today. I’ll just sum up the plot for the episode for this week. I’ll go back to crazy detailed summaries next week. Oh yes, because next week is going to be good. It is almost definitely containing that scene.

Well, for those who are unaware and pay no attention (like myself) today is the first day of Summer. And it’s another wonderful addition to my wonderful week! Because at noon today I found this on my front doorstep:

A package~! My magazines from Japan finally arrived~!

This includes: Animedia June 2008, Megami July 2008, an issue of Nakayoshi, and an issue of Ribon.

I took a lot of pictures so, there’s ton of images beyond this point! Keep it in mind.

A FairyTale Revisited (Part One)

June 19, 2008 at 8:00 am | Posted in Shinshi Doumei Cross | 6 Comments

Here’s part one on my promised feature on to go over the entire series of Shinshi Doumei Cross. Part two will show up the same time next week.

“I am Otomiya Haine. I’m a spirited fifteen-year-old!!”

With those first words in “Bring it on, Koutei!” the very first chapter, Shinshi Doumei Cross began very happily and “spirited” just like Haine.
