A long-awaited dream come true? Continue reading “Is this what I think it is?”
Gachapon machine in Kyoto. I got a Rena and a Satoko. I was going for Rika and Hanyuu, but I ran out of 100 yen coins. Continue reading “A Higurashi hello”
I love the comments people are making about Heroman. I think my favorite, although I can’t remember who said it, was “I feel like I’m six years old again and watching TV with a bowl of cereal.”. I do too.
…Except it’s not really final thoughts now. For all those who haven’t heard already, there’s been a second season of Baka to Test announced already. It was the surprise hit of the season but for a new season to be announced already is a bit sudden. Seriously, did everyone like Hideyoshi that much? Whatever the reason, I’m happy enough a second season’s been decided, though I would be lying if I said there aren’t others I’d prefer, like another DtB or another Mushishi or a sequel to Hikaru no Go and so on and so forth. Second season aside, at least the first season has ended well enough for Baka to Test to leave with fond memories, and no horrible ending backlash.
I cannot explain the feeling of joy that overcame me as the show started. It’s so good to see the girls again. I think at this point, people already know whether they’re going to watch K-On 2 or not. I was a little worried how a second season would work for the show, but as it’s already off to a strong start, it seems my fears are unfounded. It looks like we’re in for a good season of more K-On if the first episode was any indication.
I really wanted to dislike this show. What with the average artwork, the overdone Zero no Tsukaima-esque magical steampunk setting, and the harem by the numbers setup. But then about 5 minutes through, when Akuto learned of his future career as Demon Lord and the misunderstandings began, I was dekkai won over.
I’m a little surprised that Scamp, Hinano and Janette all found Kaichou wa Maid-sama to be not that good. I haven’t watched enough shoujos to know what’s standard shoujo trope, but I actually liked it quite a bit. Still iffy on whether I’d continue watching it, but I thought it was much better than the last shoujo I tried to watch: Kimi ni Todoke. In my book, Kimi ni Todoke = all shoujos. So I’m going to tell you why I thought the first ep of Kaichou was about 500 times better than the beginning of Todoke.
