I’m so unsure that I have time for this shit that watching and blogging it made me recall a term from AIR: ‘hima-hima seijin.’
I’ve now subjected myself to seven of the Spring 2008 shows. I can’t wait for Holic subs. I also finished Darker than Black for a second time last night, and for some reason, the ending STILL doesn’t make any sense. Everything that had been unexplained was suddenly explained with NEW METAPHYSICS that made no sense and weren’t explained. It was well-executed and classy, yeah, but substance-wise, it was absolutely nonsensical.
Itazura na Kiss
Itazura na Kiss looks AWESOME. AWESOME like Bokura ga Ita. I might be the only person on Earth to like the Bokura ga Ita anime, though, so maybe Itazura na Kiss will suck. At least while some jerks hate, someone seems hopeful. Oh, and someone else, too. I don’t actually know if I’m going to follow this. It seems like it’ll be fun but I really am strapped for time.
And now I need to praise this show, and not for any strengths on its part. I told Impz once before that I had forgiven him for [the terrible things he subjected me to in the past] but this… this is different. Impz has gone above and beyond the call of duty because of this show, writing an EPIC blog post that has secured itself a place forever in my hall of aniblogging legends. He may not know it… his readers probably don’t… but he has said something, because of Itazura na Kiss, that has made me fall head over heels for him.
I don’t think anymore needs to be said.
I’d pull my “there are no words” thing again, but I think it’s getting old, and who wants to read a blog the entire contents of which sum up to “I have no content?” Yeah, no one. Sooooo, thoughts. Well, it pissed me off like to-love-ru did. The foxgirl’s brother(?) was a total cock-blocker, too. Too bad he didn’t die when he got defenestrated (“defenestrated” is used here loosely—there were no windows involved, just COLD FIRE and walls); the two leads won’t get another good chance to lose their virginities. The rest of the show is going to go something like this:
Introduce new girl. New girl falls in love with Kouta for no fuggin’ reason. Foxgirl tries to have sex with Kouta. New girl interferes.
So yeah, gg hot hot sex. The kissing was pretty good, though. Also…
And yes, I will be watching this show for at least one more episode. Color me Kouta.
P.S.—when you can enjoy something only by making fun of it with fellow animebloggers (read: the scum of the Earth), it’s pretty fuckin’ terrible.
Yeeeeah, no. Sorry. The OP brought Kannazuki no Miko to mind with its sequence that screamed “this is the show’s plot!!” but failed to follow up with delicious yuri. It also doesn’t seem to have a character that can be nicknamed ‘USSR.’ These things are important and so this show is not. Good night, Amatsuki.
Also going against this show… according to Tenka Seiha’s Aroduc:
For the first time in far too long, I agree with Kurogane on something. Druaga is absolutely amazing so far. I’m kind of afraid that they might lose a bit of their momentum, though, and there’s always the unfortunate possibility of becoming another Lucky Star if references are not kept in check.
From Cinnamon Ass:
I think today’s a day for “first in a long time”s as I find myself disagreeing with Shirukii about something other than the quality of Shakugan no Shana and Da Capo He says he’s not brimming with excitement. Whether or not the show turns out to be good is just one more thing to be making noise about! Now is the time to be excited, because with thirteen episodes, it’s now or never.
Majime na Lolikit
Itazura na Kiss is standard fare that doesn’t seem to be particularly interesting or terrible. Kanokon is total shit, as admitted by its strongest supporters (they’re total shit as well). Amatsuki I can’t honestly judge right now and I don’t suppose I’ll ever take the time to change that. Tower of Druaga is definitely the most interesting of the shows I’ve taken a look at so far this season, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it will unfold.
Quick note: I’ve been writing this post for 13.5 hours.
it is moist & delicious meta
and it's not even a lie!
