Happy Halloween!

Just got off my lazy ass and actu­al­ly post­ed some­thing on this blog… even though it does­n’t have any­thing to do with ani­me per se. I just want­ed to wish all of you a Hap­py Hal­loween, and to have a safe night eat­ing your teeth-rot­ten­ing delights. Hal­loween must be like a  god to all you […]

Minami-ke 01

Best slice-of-life ani­me this sea­son — no lies. Unlike oth­er slice-of-life ani­me, this one leaves a big enough impres­sion of the series in the first episode, giv­ing us a lot of indi­ca­tion that the series will be full of win.

CLANNAD 03

THE 萌え CHARTS ARE OFF THE SCALE. Fuko reminds me alot of Ayu in many ways, although she seems to be bit too child­ish for a high school­er, don’t you think? Not that it’s a bad thing — I absolute­ly LOVE the “Doribu­ru… SHUUTO! YAY! *high five* *Hurt hand* *;___; Not hurt” ‑thing going for […]

(Enjoy) Shakugan no SHANA II OP — “Joint” (TV-Size)

The open­ing song, “Joint” (sung by Mami Kawa­da, a mem­ber of I’ve Sound), from Shaku­gan no SHANA II rocks so much it isn’t even fun­ny. Being the Shana fanat­ic I am, I searched high and low on the inter­net and final­ly found an mp3 ver­sion of the TV-sized ver­sion of the song (so I could […]

Sketchbook ~full color’S~ 01

Sketch­book seems to be quite a cute show so far. This show feels alot like Hidamari Sketch, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s a nice, calm­ly paced slice-of-life ani­me just the way I like it. The ani­ma­tion does­n’t seem too bad either, actu­al­ly… I love it. A per­son like me would absolute­ly love this […]

A Big Dango Family

When­ev­er we find our­selves fin­ish­ing an episode of CLANNAD, we find our­selves treat­ed to a real­ly cute end­ing song — だんご大家族 (Dan­go Daika­zoku). For me, I’m always treat­ed to some tears for some rea­son after lis­ten­ing to it. I find it kind of strange actu­al­ly. Despite it being a very hap­py and calm song, it […]

Artwork” isn’t perfect

So, I get a sur­pris­ing email say­ing some­one com­ment­ed on my rant about obses­sive and igno­rant Naru­tards on my old Blog­ger blog (what’s most sur­pris­ing about it, actu­al­ly, is that I have no idea why that ghost blog still gets hits). Here’s what he/she had to say: Wow. I have nev­er seen such inter­est­ing dia­logue […]

Shakugan no SHANA — Movie

The movie is basi­cal­ly an AU movie (in con­trast to what peo­ple first thought was a sequel to the first sea­son), giv­ing an alter­nate end­ing to the first arc of the ani­me (which, in my opin­ion, how they SHOULDVE end­ed it) — though it was real­ly tedious going through the same scenes we’ve already seen […]

CLANNAD 01 — [Somewhat] Quick Thoughts

It was every­thing I expect­ed it to be. (Except for the fullscreen… WHY THE FULLSCREEN? The ani­ma­tion was great and all, com­ing from KyoAni, but the episode being shown in fullscreen killed some of the view­ing plea­sure for me)
