More finished anime!

I completed watching more anime this week.

First of all we have Pani Poni Dash! which I have on DVD. It was a riot! Stark comedy set in a whirlwind style revolving around an 11 year old MIT graduate that comes to teach high school in Japan. Oh, and she's being watched by aliens.

My favorite character from the show was definately Himeko! She was just the type of person I probably would have been in high school if I was Japanese, a girl, and in an anime...

I rated it excellent on ANN.

Next I finished Nanatsuiro Drops which is about a guy who falls for a girl who happens to become a magical girl in order to help a talking sheep doll return home to doll land. Oh, but the guy is the doll; he turns into the doll when the sun sets, but he can't tell the girl that...

It's a wonderfully romantic Maho Shoujo title with a great deal of comedy and life lessons. Get your tissues ready though...

I rated it excellent on ANN.

Lastly, I finished Gakuen Utopia Minabi Straight! which is about an overzealous high school girl and how she changes the lives of several classmates (if not the whole school!). This show has a bit of it comedy, drama, life lessons, and rock and roll too at the end. My only detractor was the chara design; I mean these girls are supposed to be 16+ years old! It was enjoyable none the less.

I rated this excellent on ANN as well.

Yoroshiku, baby!

I updated my Wallpaper and Cell Phone images in the least I did something!!>_<

Friday, November 2, 2007


Wow, has it been a month already? Where does the time go...well at an average of 24 mins each episode, to anime of course!

I've finished the following in the past month...

Code E - A girl moves to a new town and is discovered to have an effect on electronics by a genius recluse at school. He propsitions her to study her body and the antics begin. The girl who has been watching over the guy is involved and you have a nice sci-fi romantic comedy. I rated it excellent on ANN.

Doujin Work - After recently achieving adulthood our heroine dives head first into the word of doijin work; i.e. drawing erotic comics. This was a great comedy close dear to my heart; I love all anime related to otakuness!! I rated this excellent on ANN.

Kenko Zenrakei Suieibu Umisho - A new student comes to Umisho; on a raft all the way from Okinawa! SHe is seen to swim like a fish and is recruited for the swim team. It seems that the manager has met her somewhere before... I loved this show, for the comedy and fanservice, which I'm sure will be more evident in the DVD release. I rated this excellent on ANN.

Lucky Star - This show is pretty much a study of just what a bunch of high school girls are into and talk about and oh, it's hilarious! Especially when you throw in Konata and her otaku family! I rated thsi excellent on ANN. It's seems that now it has been licensed by Bandai Ent, so I'm anticipating the DVDs!

Lovely Complex - Imagine the tallest girl in school and the shortest boy in school slowly getting a groove for each other. Let the comedy ensue!! This anime has it all, comedy, romance, drama (well a little) and it's just plain funny! I rated this a masterpiece on ANN (yes, I really did!)

I also updated my top ten lists...see ya!

Shonen explosion!

I finished three shonen series this week and I have to let you know about them.

Claymore - What better premise can you have for cool chicks battling demons than having the chicks be half-demon tsudere hotties? Clair is a Claymore, which are for the most part half-human, half Yoma (demonlike monsters) women who's sole task in life is to eradicate the Yoma. Clair however became a Claymore for revenge against the "Awakened Being" (a former Claymore that went past her power limits to become basically a Super-Yoma!) who killed her only reason for living, Teresa of the Faint Smile, a Claymore gone rogue who befriended Clair. Clair isn't half and half; she took in part of Teresa instead of part of a Yoma.

There is much battle and character developement with each episode ending on a cliff, keeping you on edge until the next. I won't spoil it anymore, but the ending wraps of some of the story while leaving a great deal of room for another season!!

I rated this one excellent on ANN.

Murder Princess - A Princess escapes when the royal scientist initiates a coup. Whe she is chased by a monster in the forest, she's saved by a tsudere bounty hunter and somehow the two end up swapping bodies! It's now up to the bounty hunter to save the kingdom as the Murder Princess". There is a good amount of fighting in this anime and it's surprising how our princess can move so quickly in that dress! It's a six episode OVA and well worth the viewing. I rated it excellent on ANN as well.

Coyote Ragtime Show - It took me a while to get back to this show, but I wanted to finish it. It was well worth my time (and the price of waiting and purchasing the DVDs). Mister breaks out of jail with only ten days left on his sentence to pursue a treasure left behind by his dead partner in crime (who also left him a daughter to care for). Galactic political moves make finding the treasure all the more urgent as the planet where it's supposed to be is on a countdown to destruction.

This show has shonen written all over it from the awesome aierial battles to the cocky characters, including the detective duo after Mister's tail. My favorites have to be the 12 sisters, each named after a month of the year (my personal favorite being April!).

I rated this an excellent on ANN also.

Go on, get that anime; you know you want to! ;D

(Sorry no pics; I am a busy, busy man!!)

He Is My Master - 300th title I've seen!

I wanted to set my 300th anime title viewed (this of course discounts the 100+ hentai titles...) with an anime that I had left fallen by the wayside (really I was just saving it for a better time) He Is My Master.

I was quite fond of this title because the main male character is all I would want to be if I was still young and single... Anyway, this anime is full of gags and quite hilarious if you take it all in, especially the fanservice! Pochi is the consumate pet; I mean who wouldn't want a lovesick galge playing aligator for a pet?!?

I seriously enjoyed Izumi's emotional struggle and the unexpected twist at the end of the show! I recommend this title rated it excellent on ANN.

Yeah, I'm trying to keep posting at least once a day here...

Check out my updated Top Ten Titles I'm Watching!


When a boy has to become a girl...

I finished Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru and I have to took me to places I thought I couldn't fathom. Don't ask me to explain this. I would definately recommend this series; it's been licensed, so it should be out by the end of the year.
This boy must fullfil his grandfather's wish that he attend a prestegeous school; the only catch being that it's an all girl's school. He becomes quite the lady, even gaining the honored title of Elder (hence everyone cslling him "Onee-sama"). It becomes apparent towards the middle of the series that he was being groomed for the place since early childhood; his mother having forbid him a decent haircut.
He does various good deeds which further ingratiate him with the student body, until things come to a head between him/her and the student body president.

I rated this one Excellent on ANN. Check it out!

Origin ~ Spirits of the Past ~

I bought and watched this some time ago, but thought it needed mentioning here becasue it was quite good! A boy in the future finds a girl from the past who holds the key to change the world from it's current domination by plant life.

The boy must rescue the girl after she is conned by the bad guy into helping him change the world in the wrong sort of way.

I rated it Excellent on ANN. Check it out!

It's a ghost town here...

I know I should post here more often, for those people who wander by, but I just can't seem to find the time. I've been juggling between work, family, and anime; the later two getting most of my attention!

I have updated the current Desktop and Cellphone images for your enjoyment. It's the least I can do, right?

Not a good idea...

If you are an emotional drunk, don't watch Godannar when you are! Especially episode 12!!

I'm just saying...

It's good to be the gecko!!!

Why did I come by this image? i was looking for Ayumi Hamasaki videos of course! Why is it related to anime (besides having my namesake in the pic)? Ayumi Hamasaki did some anime theme songs and is (IMHO) a diva of the J-Pop scene!! Check her out!

Finished Eureka Seven...

It was quite good. Some of the angst was over the top, and a bit of the story was hard to follow but it cleaned up nicely almost to the point of closure...

You really should check it out...

Eureka Seven - I rated it Excellent on ANN.

My favorite...

I never thought I would actually ever pick a favorite anime/manga character, but I can without a doubt now say that Ogiue-san from Genshiken is my all time favorite. I mean I really feel for her. I've read all the Genshiken manga that's been released in the states, own the first season of Genshiken (although she only appeared in the ending theme scene, i thought I'd mention it) , and have seen the first two new OVAs. I've never felt for a character this much before. What is it? Is it her Tsudere-ness that gets to me? I just don't know; I just know she's my favorite...

Whoa, where does the time go!

I've been too busy watching anime to update this blog, although I have alot to say. Perhaps I feel I need more confidence in writing? Probably.

Well, I have updated my latest desktop and cellphone images on the sidebar...

Ouran High Scholl Host Club!

I was determined to finish Ouran High School Host Club since I had all the eps and it was well worth the effort, especially since it played on my DiVX DVD player! Most of the time anime is better viewed on a bigger screen than my laptop!

It's about a high school club at an ultra-rich school where male students entertain female students for fun and profit. Except the newest member is an exceptional but somewhat clumsy female who has little money but got enrolled somehow, only to break a vase in the clubs mysterious location, the third music room. This gets her sequestered to the club to be an imitation boy until her debt is paid off.

This show deftly uses alot of site gags and background effects you normally see in shoujo manga. The comedy and story line are constant throughout the entire series and the animation is top-notch. I rated this show a Masterpiece on ANN and it really does deserve it!

So much anime, so little time!

I've been trying to catch up with what I still have to watch, then another slue of shows pops out!!

I'm currently catching fansubs of the following, the most of which look promising...

Lucky Star - general mayhem revolving around an otaku girl and her friends...

Claymore - a half-demon demon hunter takes in an orphaned boy and struggles with her human side while...well, just doing her job...

Ikki Tousen Dragon Destiny - The battle continues with competing high schools out to rule the Kanto plain...with increased fanservice an extra!

Nagasarete Airantou - a runaway stows aboard a ship and is lost at sea, until he is rescued by a girl and is stuck on an island populated only by women. Sound like a dream come true? Not if they are all out to get you for themselves and they happen to be ninjas! This guy is getting far more pain than pleasure, I'm sure...

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - a boy stuck in an underground village makes an amazing discovery...let the mayhem ensue!

Other new shows which I haven't finished giving the three ep test to yet are, Bokurano, Darker than Black, Hayate no Gotoku!, Hitohira, IdolMaster Xenoglossia, Juusoukikou Dancouga Nova, Toward the Terra, Romeo X Juliet, Lovely Complex, Reideen, Moonlight Mile, Koutetsu Sangokushi, Shining Tears X Wind, Monster Princess, Murder Princess, Kishin Taisen Gigantic Formula, Rocket Girls, and Touka Gettan.

This of course is all new to add to the bunch of others I have to watch!

So you can see I have alot of catching up to do...

Tears of joy...

I just finished watching Asatte no Houkou and it was one of the best shows I have seen about everyday things like family, friends, and love. put forth in such an unconventional way!

I have to admit it was definately a tear jerker outing for me. I suppose it comes from loosing so much in life. It is a wonderful story. I rated it excellent on ANN and hope you can check it out as well.
