Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club Season 1

September 25, 2008

Listening to: Daichi no Uta by Sachiko Muratani

Today I finished watching Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club season one. My honest opinion of it? I completely loved it. People may think I loved it just because it has something to do with Sasami, but to be perfectly honest, it didn’t feel like Sasami that much, or Misao for that matter. It wasn’t because of the character designs, or shall I say re-designs, but it was because Chisa Yokoyama wasn’t the seiyuu for Sasami. Don’t get me wrong, Mana Ogawa did a wonderful job as the seiyuu for Sasami, but I’ve been used to hearing Chisa-sama’s voice as Sasami for eight years.

Anyway, the anime in itself was very good, and worth it for sure. The animation was spectacular and the background designs were amazing. The storyline was well-written and the series didn’t once get boring or mundane for me. The soundtrack was beautifully composed as well. This is an anime I would have loved even if I (gasp) had never known who Sasami was. Naturally, I took a million screencaps, so here they are!


the happy-go-lucky and high-spirited Sasami Iwakura from the opening “Sweet MAGIC”


surprised Sasami


kawaii Sasami


Sasami as a child


Sasami running


Sasami blushing


Sasami dancing with Ami-chan


Sasami’s reflection of her as an adult


her reflection again


now she has a dress on


Sasami wearing a hat due to the words “usagi atama” floating above her head


the introverted and quiet Misao Shinohara from the opening “Sweet MAGIC”


Misao looking tentative


Misao raising her hand


“YAMETE!”


you can’t not love Misao-chan


a very determined Misao


Misao has come a long way


the mischevious and striver-to-be-taller Makoto Hozumi


Mako-chan is sooo cute!


Makoto adorned in her mahou shoujo fuku


I just love her ahoge ^0^


the deep and solemn Tsukasa Takamine from the opening “Sweet MAGIC”


Tsukasa-sama staring off


Tsukasa looking at a talking vegetable


a very nice smile


Tsukasa always seemed to excell in magic before the other majo


wink!


when in her mahou shoujo fuku, Tsukasa has a very unique hairstyle


the loud and totally-in-love-with-Tsukasa Anri “An-An” Mizugi from the opening “Sweet MAGIC”


Anri whining over Tsukasa


Anri casting a troublesome spell


a brilliant nosebleed caused by Tsukasa


An-An during the magical girl’s competiton


a nice shot of Misao, Tsukasa, and Sasami


the mysterious Amitav


Itoki, whom Wasyuu-sensei despises


I don’t think that’s the right way to go about getting the baby to stop crying…

Well, that’s it for the screencaps! I hope someone enjoys them. I really hope Funimation licenses the second season. If they don’t, I can only hope for a subber.

Until later!

HOLY SHIT!!!!

September 1, 2008

Listening to: Holiday by Do As Infinity

I found out through an e-mail from a forum that the greatest fucking Japanese rock band in the world, Do As Infinity, is getting back together!!!!
ヽ(^0^)/ ヾ(●⌒∇⌒●)ノ わーい わーい わぁぁぁぁぁい~!!!!♪ *dances*

Apparantly they are reforming somewhere around the date of September 29th this year! It seems that they will be doing live shows for a while and then releasing something by next spring. I’m so excited. This is the best thing I’ve heard for a really long time!! I’d light up a joint right now in celebration if I had any weed, but oh well! I feel high just knowing they’re getting back together. ^_____^
