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!
