Why Kamina? Just Because.

A.A (which stands for Anime Awards) is a little item I’ll post every day until New Years for a wonderful total of thirty awards. They’re going to be short award posts for whatever it is I think up. It’s actually something I thought to do for a few months now because I knew I wouldn’t have the energy to make one huge awards post. Procrastination and laziness for the win!

Disclaimer: All of these awards are completely and totally based on my personal preferences. Deal with it.

I wasn’t going to post this but I’d feel a sense of defeat if I skipped another guy in the rankings. I’m busy as hell with homework and ropleplaying as well as a huge list of anime to catch up too. I’m swamped and I don’t want to do. But, I’ll take the time and write this post about Miharu anyway because he deserves it. I love Miharu too much too skip him even though I haven’t found the time to watch the latest Nabari no Ou episodes. (more…)

After finally finishing the Fall 2008 Lineup post, I’ve decided to unwind and relax for the remaining days of Summer vacation. It’s 16 days before Orientation and though it sounds like I have a lot of time left on my hands it’s really really not all that much. The days are passing me by at extreme speed and I’m just sitting at my desk doing absolutely nothing. (more…)

Okay, so summer isn’t over yet sure but since it’s close to ending I figured I might as well do this post now. Just so you know, the Fall 2008 Lineup is moving along smoothly. Most of the information searching is over so after I write down my personal impressions I’ll be ready to post it. Well, I’m also waiting for certain news about certain series. Namely, Skip Beat. Also, not many series have their air dates released either so I’m waiting for that too. I’ll probably have it posted before the end of the month though. I wouldn’t want to have that post in the back of my mind when school starts. (more…)

Nabari no Ou is an anime I started watching for the sake of satisfying my guilty pleasure. I never thought it’d get this good and its doing nothing but getting better. (more…)

Yes, Shirogane. We all know.

Run! Hide! Check you insurance and if you don’t have make one quick! Write a will just for safety purposes! The apocalypse might be approaching!

Okay, maybe not. I’m just making a fuss. So anyways, I was watching Monokuro and the realization hit me. Both figuratively and literally (I should stop keeping manga in strange places, my room’s raining them). So anyways, I just went “Is it me? Or are men in anime starting to lose interest in women?” Well, at the very least, all male characters (with the exception of Toudou maybe) in Geass have already lost interest in the opposite sex. Just look at Lulu! He just lost Shirley and they let Orange-kun in. What’s his harem now? 3 women, 5 men? Or are there more I’m just forgetting? Not to mention Shirley’s death is going to be cause of the Black Knight’s downfall with Lulu going all mental and losing what little sanity he had left. Although, Suzaku isn’t any better. Kallen’s looking good in that dress at least but let’s pray she doesn’t mental too after taking the drug. It’s GSD all over again. Come on Sunrise! You can do better than that right – Oh crap, right this wasn’t a Geass post.

I mean just look at Monokuro. There are girls in them but their basically decorations. Nabari? Not a single male character in there looks like they have potential interest in females. Kumohira-sensei doesn’t count because has a wife and is only interested in her … and other than her there’s Miharu. Oh wait! There’s hope. We’ve still got Macross! Alto’s straight right? As long as Sunrise stays away from them, we’ll get a normal ending with either Sheryl or Ranka. God knows how much I don’t want to see a AltoxLuca or MikhailxAlto ending … out of doujins at least. And oh look! More hope. Toki in Amatsuki potentially likes Kuchiha right?

Alright … maybe this isn’t so hopeless after all. Back to Balett Star.

Angsty sibling Love

Well, this episode brings an end to the whole Shimizu backstory and even had me a little teary in the end. What I don’t get is why Raikou still tried to kill Raimei in the end … I mean, what the hell for? Or maybe he wanted Raimei to kill him but that’s something I highly doubt. Unlike some other characters [Yoite!], Raikou doesn’t look like he has any desire to die. [Spoilers after the break!] (more…)

Never let the smile fool you

It’s Monday. That means my brain isn’t properly functioning yet. And I just made it worst by racking my mind with something non-BL to write about. So then I decided on the latest episode of Nabari no Ou (episode 08).

I noticed this a while ago, but episode eight had it really jumping out to me. ‘This’ being the fact that there aren’t really any ‘good’ or ‘bad’ guys in Nabari no Ou. Well, I’ll admit this post had me realizing that fact too. Anyways, its been a week since the episode aired so no summary from me.

From beginning to the near end, I was wondering “Where the hell is Aizawa?!”…. and then, when he showed up out of practically NO WHERE and shot Mr. Freezie … I was in O_O mode for the rest of the episode. Despite everything that happened in the episode (Yoite’s breakdown, Miharu putting himself between Oda and Yoite and all else), Aizawa was what struck me the most this episode.

From the start, I always thought Aizawa to be the ‘normal’ character. Not really comic relief or whatever but the ‘ordinary’ person with not much to him. Yeah well, after Oda made a point to say that there was something to him too I realized maybe he was ordinary and bland for a reason. Even so, I was still really surprised to see him finish the job in episode eight. I kinda expected Sensei to come through in the end and finish him off. Looks like Sensei was more naive and innocent than anyone else. It’s always the harmless, ordinary ones who are the dangerous ones after all, eh? Props to Satoshi Hino for actually putting shivers down my spine when he was genjutsu-ing the four-eyed asshole. I’m much more used to his baka inu character -cough- Saito -cough- so it kinda surprised me. Maybe that impression I had of Hino-san contributed to my perception of Aizawa.

Most of everyone’s pasts seem more or less clear in my head at this point. The only characters I’m not really sure about are Yukimi and Aizawa … but obviously, I’m more interested about Aizawa.

(Really, I’m surprised Nabari became a show I’m taking seriously since at first I took this up to poke fun at)

I hope 26 episodes is enough to explore the characters enough and give us a satisfying ending …
