Listening to: Haatenya? by U

Happy May 1st. I’ve not been able to update for a long time ’cause a lot went on in April, mainly going to South Carolina for a week to visit my boyfriend’s parents with him (that’s where they live). It was quite an experience; the drive from here (Pennsylvania) to South Carolina took us twelve hours and was roughly 630 miles. The drive was okay for the first maybe seven or eight hours, but after that it got unbearable. Angelo (boyfriend) drank like two energy drinks, two energy shots, and had to take caffeine pills as well just to make it. Fortunately on the way back we got to stay at a really nice hotel courtesy of his father so it wasn’t bad at all. All in all it was fun.

Angelo and I went to see Dragonball Evolution…wow. What a terribly bad movie. Yamcha was fucking stupid, Bulma was a whore, Chi Chi was a dumb bitch, and Goku was more or less a horrible actor that looked like Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day:

To make matters worse there was this stupid Korean bitch that just had to bring her 300 small children with her. She spent the entire time flapping her gums away on the phone while her children ran around the theater like banshees. Whatever though, I didn’t go into the theater expecting to see a masterpiece. I was very aware that I was watching a movie.

On the third of April, my boyfriend and I went to Tekkoshocon, an anime convention held annually around the Pittsburgh area. As expected there were fat nerds all over the place. Well I happened to actually find a bunch of packs of Pretty Sammy trading cards! Imagine my surprise when I saw them! I bought as many as I could afford, along with a really nice PVC figure of Otome Asakura from D.C. II.

don’t you want to smear your ass all over these hot sluts?

I was pretty fucking happy with my purchases. Also last year on my birthday I said I’d post pictures of the Pretty Sammy novels I got, but I never did, so I’ll just do that now along with their respective Japanese titles.

So that’s them. Pretty sexy eh?

Anyway, about anime I’ve been watching…I finished Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai a while ago, and it was really beautiful. I wish they would have expanded on it more though, namely the relationship between Yumemi and Munto.

I also finished Maria Holic and I have to say that while I loved it, I was a little disappointed. I honestly expected Kanako and Mariya to end up together somehow. It was still awesome anyway.

I started Kodomo no Jikan Ni Gakki and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei and I like both so far, though I like Higurashi a little more because of the Rika moeness. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen in Higurashi, not to mention that the animation is beautiful.

I also watched an interesting anime called Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora. It’s about a boy named Yuuichi Ezaki who has to stay in the hospital for an extended period of time due to hepatitis. He meets a girl there named Rika Akiba who he befriends and falls in love with; he learns, though, that she has a life-threatening heart problem and may not live, and thus this is the storyline. What can I say? I cried. It was a really great series. I’d recommend it to anyone, because I think it’s something that anyone can enjoy.

I’m currently watching K-ON! and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. I like K-ON! and everything but the hype over the series is really pissing me off. I guess it’s just something I’ll have to ignore, hard as that will be. As for SZS, it’s…weird. I’m on episode 8 at the moment and I’m still not sure what to think of it or why I’m watching it in the first place. Still, I’m going to watch it all anyway just because I’m already this far and I have no other anime to watch at the moment.

Now here are the few screencaps that I’ve taken:

Bit of Catching Up

Listening to: I’m a Fake by Little Red Rocket

Exactly one year ago today, I started this blog. A lot has happened in that year; I turned 19, I went through three break-ups and two mental hospitals, revisited my past a little, found tons of great new anime and music, lost a friend, gained another boyfriend, did more drugs than I care to talk about, was introduced to Pangya and, met a band, and now, over 50,000 hits and 300 comments later, here I am today. Thank you everybody!

I withdraw my last post because Ntreev Soft has decided to pick up Albatross18/Pangya! You can read the official announcement here. Hopefully Ntreev will take better care of us and the game than OGPlanet did. Then again, a group of homeless 10-year-olds with wooden eyes and perpetual gonorrhea could do a better job than OGPlanet.

Oh man hmm…I will start with anime I am watching that is currently airing. I’ll start with Maria Holic.

So far it seems to be about a presumably lesbian high school girl named Kanako Miyamae whom just transfers to an all-girl school. Everything seems fine; there are beautiful girls everywhere providing exorbitant amounts of eye candy for our protagonist and all is going smoothly until Kanako meets a stunning girl named Mariya Shidou. Mariya gets too close to Kanako and Kanako breaks out in hives. This she finds odd because she is an anomaly of sorts – she breaks out in hives when men are too close to her. Shortly after, Kanako stumbles upon Mariya undressing – only to find out that Mariya is, in fact, a man. Mariya threatens to out Kanako if Kanako tells their peers this fact, and so Kanako becomes the sadistic Mariya’s slave, more-or-less.
Thus you have Maria Holic.

I like this anime a whole lot and it’s not boring for even one second. The humor is fucked-up and brutal, the art is very nice (which is quite important to me), it’s vulgar and sometimes offensive, and the storyline leaves a lot to be questioned. I think I’m going to enjoy this one very much.

Next I will comment on Akikan!. Akikan! is about a high school boy named Daichi Kakeru who has the hobby of collecting juice cans. On a seemingly normal day he buys a can of melon juice from a vending machine and when he drinks it, he opens his eyes to find that he is touching lips with a pretty young girl. This girl, whom he names “Meron/Melon”, is what they call an Akikan. An Akikan is a girl that resides in either steel or aluminum cans and all have powers. My favorite Akikan so far is the adorable Budoko. I like this series, just not as much as I thought I would.

Now I will go over the second season of Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club. Wow, what an amazing series this turned out to be. It started off with seeming like a children’s show, but the second season was so much more morbid. They really showed Misao’s dark side in-depth and how much she idolizes and envies Sasami for being able to be so extroverted and outgoing with everyone. I also really liked the cute romance between Sasami and Ami-chan. I wasn’t able to take any screenshots because I couldn’t import the DVD to my computer and was too lazy to figure out how to do it, but oh well. Honestly, the the anime in general turned out to be so much more than what I had originally anticipated it to be.

The next anime I will go over is Rizelmine. This one tells the story of Tomonori Iwaki, a regular fifteen-year-old boy, who is suddenly forced to marry a twelve-year-old girl named Rizel. Each episode is fifteen minutes long. I am currently on episode fifteen and really liking it. It’s really funny and cute.

Now I’ll talk about Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai. This anime is just amazing so far. The art is absolutely beautiful and the storyline has me really drawn in, although it’s a bit confusing so I can’t really write what it’s about. I really like the heroine, Yumemi Hidaka, and I loved the way that the characters Suzume Imamura and Kazuya Takamori convey their feelings to each other. Munto is a really cool guy too. This series is actually based off of a two-part OVA simply called Munto; I’ll have to check it out after this is done airing.

Next I’ll discuss Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~. This was a four-part OVA detailing a good ending for Haruka. It was okay, nothing spectacular, but I really enjoyed the animation. OVA’s usually have really great animation; perhaps that is why I like them so much. I didn’t begin watching this until all four episodes had already been subbed.

Da Capo If is one that I will go over next. It’s only got two episodes but I really liked the first one. It centers around Kotori which pleases me because Kotori is my second-favorite Da Capo character. My guess is that the reason why they decided to make an OVA with her as the main character is because she seems to be the most popular and favored Da Capo character. I can’t wait until the next part comes out.

Another anime I watched recently was Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel. This two-part OVA revolves around two magical girls, Aoi Kannazuki and Haruka Minazuki and their adventures fighting crime. I really think that Mamiko Noto and Yukari Tamura did really well together as the main characters respectively. Plus, I can’t get the theme song out of my head. >_>

Last and certainly the least, Kanokon. Why do I say that? It was just an awful series. The storyline (if you can really call it that) was terrible and almost every single character annoyed the piss out of me. I heard someone say that Kanokon is just one step below hentai; that person is absolutely right. As I stated in a previous post, there’s just waaaaaay too much ecchi and fanservice. The only redeeming quality was the animation and art-style. That was amazing. Other than that, thumbs way down.

On to the screencaps! Maria Holic is first.
