Holiday greetings from Gensokyo

Yes­ter­day, I talked about how hap­py and excit­ed I was about the Rurouni Ken­shin revival that has been going on this year, and dis­cussed how god­ly my hype is for the live-action movie.

But let me just clar­i­fy, I’m not only going to talk about notable shows/characters this year (best saved for a New Years post!), I’m also going be talk­ing about activ­i­ties I’ve been doing that are relat­ed to ani­me as well.

And with that, let’s get on with the sec­ond day… *kid­naps a bunch of singers*

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

A sword is a weapon to kill...

One cross-shaped scar…

[First Day]

Haruhi shapes the world...literally

Two godly novels, and a partridge in a pair tree!

Catch­ing up with my The Melan­choly of Haruhi Suzu­miya light nov­el (hard­cov­er) col­lec­tion was def­i­nite­ly quite a thing this year. I was hon­est­ly tired of wait­ing for Kyoto Ani­ma­tion to give us anoth­er set of Haruhi episodes, so I decid­ed that div­ing even deep­er with­in the light nov­el­’s sto­ry was the only thing that would give me my fix. Because my patience is run­ning thin, man!

My addic­tion to Haruhi is com­pa­ra­ble to a smok­ing addic­tion. Smok­ers have to have em’ blunts. And I got­ta’ get my fix of real­i­ty-warp­ing fun.

Too bad Yen Press only local­izes two light nov­el vol­umes a year. Darn it!


(Oh boy, I should have nev­er sug­gest­ed this, haha. But I already start­ed, so I have to see it through… won­der how long I can keep this sil­ly thing going.)

  1. I’ve been debat­ing whether or not to read the Haruhi light nov­els, I’ve only heard good things about them so who knows. I’m usu­al­ly patient when it comes to ani­me get­ting released because I get side­tracked so eas­i­ly by oth­er ani­me =P

    1. @Shikon: Well, if you liked the ani­me, I can guar­an­tee you the nov­els are just as good if not bet­ter. More nar­ra­tion from Kyon that’s not in the ani­me. plus, it does­n’t look like KyoAni’s going to get around to Haruhi any­time soon, so… 😛
      But I guess it’s good that oth­er ani­me helps keep your atten­tion away from that fact. No mat­ter how many ani­me I watch, my patience with KyoAni and Haruhi/FMP wavers. 😛
