Blogging is hard on an empty heart… school is over and I currently miss… uhhh… things.
List of anime I’m planning to blog (if any of them are awful, or just not interesting enough, then they’ll be dropped or I’ll keep on blogging them just to poke fun at them :3):
Baccano is Italian for noise, but Narita translates it as “stupid commotion.” Each of the stories in the series involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral farther and farther out of control. Immortal alchemists, mafia operated speakeasies, and many other elements of pulp fiction mashed together for a world straight out of the movies.
Seems epicly crazy enough. And just for the fact that it’s based on a light novel, which of late have very great anime adaptions, I’m confident of it.
The story is about a girl named Najimi Osana who learns more and more about the doujin world. She is convinced that she wants to be a doujin artist due to seeing what her friend could make at a convention. She loves to draw but finds that it is more difficult to comprehend after all. After making friends with some interesting people, they teach her the ins and outs of the field, and maybe she will eventually make a name for making doujinshi.
If the story’s about artists — then I’m automatically in. I love to draw doujinshi (and some original works…) and this is something I can easily relate to. Now, if only I had a scanner…
But it looks interesting…
Haven’t watched much magical girl series anymore,if not at all (the closest I’ve come to that would be a rewatch of Cardcaptor Sakura :0). Plus, it’s an adaption of an eroge illustrated by Noizi ito, one of my favorite artists — whose art transition from light novel to anime has been a good one (taking a look at The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Shakugan no Shana). I’ll like to see where this anime goes in the direction of art-style (which looks purty right now…) and animation.
All we need is a historical NINJA anime. By that, I mean an anime focused on the assassins of feudal Japan, with some decent historical accuracy. And I’m not talking about an idiot in orange pajamas yerning to be lord of his village.
KARAS Story 4 seems to be a definite must-watch too, judging by the description of the OAV (taken from WikiPedia because I’m just that lazy): The world of the humans and the world of the demons (youkai) have overlapped one another, leaving humans to walk the streets of life as they normally would, while demons walk, hidden from the naked eye, down the very same streets. A young woman named Yurine, and her servant Karas, have long maintained order and balance between the overlapped worlds, ultimately keeping the demons from interrupting the lives of humans. However, humans have come to forget and jest at the existence of demons, and no longer understand the privilege it is to live without fear. Disgusted by this arrogance, an old Karas turns his back on the laws he had once upheld, and takes the form of a human named Eko, while creating an army of Mikura, or mechanized demons, to ready an attack on the human race.
A young man named Otoha inherits the powers of the Karas and takes his place at the side of Yurine, who claims that his soul called out for her while he lived the life of a human. They live in the world of the demons. It is now up to Otoha to prove himself as a Karas, and restore the balance that Eko threatens to upset.
Meanwhile, a superstitious police officer named Sagisaka and his rational new recruit, Kure, follow the trail of the murders dealt by Eko’s Mikura, as well as the trail of a good demon turned human named Nue. The prophecy unfolds from here…
Summer looks like it’s going to be fun. A little. But that’s just the anime portion of summer. Other than that… it doesn’t look to be very great. :/
Edit — On an unrelated note, why does the font on the blog look all large now? lol
