Characters of 2007

A lot of us are look­ing back at which series are the most mem­o­rable this year for a vari­ety of rea­sons — the qual­i­ty of the sto­ry­telling, orig­i­nal­i­ty, niche gim­micks (moé, loli­ta, Shō­­tarō-char­ac­ters, A Drill That Will Pierce Through The Heav­ens, unnat­ur­al boob mea­sure­ments, etc.), and all that oth­er shit. HOWEVER! To me, what real­ly […]

Gyakuten Saiban Anime — Any Objections?

What I REALLY want for Christ­mas I remem­bered that old pro­mo­tion­al video for the release of Gyakuten Saiban Yomi­gaeru Gyakuten (the remake of Gyakuten Saiban 1 for the DS in Japan, and the first Phoenix Wright game released for Eng­lish-speak­ing audi­ences). The FUNNIEST thing ever. What peo­ple liked about that pro­mo was its wit­ty (almost […]

Shakugan no SHANA II — 10

Kham­sin is back! Nice to see him after being MIA from SHANA II up until now. Some­how, I found the scenes he was in (which was how many? Two?) the only scenes that I deemed to have good ani­ma­tion. Talk about a step down in ani­ma­tion, J.C.Staff…

Tsubasa-RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- Chapters 174–175

Final­ly… Real!Syaoran enters the dream world using Seishirō’s real­i­­ty-alter­ing feath­er to recov­er Saku­ra’s soul (and we find out that Seishirō was going to give Syao­ran the feath­er any­way and was just mess­ing with him lol). How­ev­er, Clone!Syaoran warps into that dimen­sion too (and as he was enter­ing the dream world, Watanu­ki, in yet anoth­er short […]

Tsubasa-RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- (Celes Arc; Chapters 154–166)

Dur­ing the search for Saku­ra’s body (which was sep­a­rat­ed from her soul in chap­ter 149), we final­ly find out the truth about Fay’s past. And I must say, Fay’s past has got to be one of the most grue­some ori­gins out of all the char­ac­ters in Tsub­asa.

Shakugan no SHANA II — 09

Well, Yuri died. A shame too, I thought he was a lik­able char­ac­ter, in a sense that he was real­ly one of the only Flame Haze that fought (… uh, had a fight) for the sake of human­i­ty. And wow, I must say that Margery’s flash­backs of the Sil­ver Tomog­a­ra were pret­ty sav­age. Yuji con­jurs […]
