When I put in Bastof Syndrome, I was in for a surprise. It had been released by ADV and since the large majority of their titles had been Japanese anime, I wasn’t ready to be greeted by a Korean techno opening theme! Continue reading
I’m surprised that I’ve come as far in my collection as I have. I watch the most anime on Sunday when I have time to fill between doing loads of laundry.
The candidate for this post is Basilisk, a dramatic action series about a conflict between the Koga and Iga ninja clans. Continue reading
I think the last time I tried this (with a much smaller collection), I stopped at Baccano. Sometimes I just have to be in a particular mood to watch anime, and forcing a schedule just doesn’t work out.
In my collection, Baccano is one of the titles I’ve actually watched 4 or 5 times now. It’s endlessly fascinating, and I usually end up wishing there were more.
I’ll admit it, I have a fondness for tsundere characters. I don’t actually own many figures of said tsundere(s?) though. Well actually, depending on how you interpret tsundere, maybe I have quite the collection (I don’t – not that many), who knows?
Anyhow, a few months back, I came across news of a Hitagi nendoroid, in a Bakemonogatari special item box. I’ve only watched the Bakemonogatari anime and Hitagi is one of my favorite characters. I like her overall look and her attitude, so of course I went ahead and preordered the box. This nendo surprised me. Continue reading
If I’d watched Appleseed when it was first released, I would have been impressed with the graphics. Unfortunately, I watched it last week and it looks dated.
Appleseed is about a lady soldier named Deunan, who doesn’t wear any upper body armor for half the movie, her former lover and commander Briareos, and the world they live in. It features humans, synthetic humans, and a society where both exist. Of course, the humans have mistrust for the bioroids, which are the synthetic beings that exist along with them in Olympus (which is seperate from the outside world?). Continue reading
I’m not a fan of really hyper anime, like Excel Saga. The more yelling and random things that happen, the less likely I am to keep watching. Animation Runner Kuromi is an exception. Continue reading
I would have loved Angel Sanctuary as a pre-teen or even a teenager. There’s a war between Heaven and Hell, and possibly Earth, there’s angels and demons…and that’s about all I would have loved about it. The “romantic” subplot of blood siblings running away together would still have weirded me out. Continue reading
Sometimes I forget I have a blog, which is silly seeing as how I pay for this web space! Ah, the wonders of living in this day and age.
Thanks to a few sales on crunchyroll, I have a lot more random volumes of anime than I used to. Plus a lot of duplicates that I will be trying to unload. Probably unsuccessfully. One of those was volume three of Air, a Key series animated by KyoAni. Continue reading
Huzzah, it’s the last of my Secret Santa posts for this year! This last one is going to be about my surprise favorite: Fate/Zero!
I’d been watching Jojo’s (on my computer), and with the temperature steadily decreasing outside AND inside, I wanted to be able to watch one of my Secret Santa shows in a warmer room! As fate (haha) would have it, I was passing a sleepless pre-Thanksgiving night, so I decided to start Fate/Zero. I was leery of it mostly because I’d watched the first one or four episodes of Fate/Stay Night and it was boring. I didn’t know of Gen Urobochi and his work (though I do now! I need to watch PsychoPass.)
When I read this title in my list of recommendations I thought, “yes! how did they know?!” when I got to Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. I’d kept up with some of the hype on twitter, and really all I knew was that I planned to watch it…sometime. So this gave me the excuse I needed to get in gear and watch it.
