Sunrise getting stupid (What would Lelouch do?)

I’m confident that I personally will never see one of these:

Kurokami: Black God, episode 2

kurokami3kurokami1

I know Sunrise is producing this, but I swear I’m watching a JC Staff show. Anyway, this episode picks up where the last one left off. As Keita mourns Mayu’s death, the eerie similarity to his mom’s death causes him to get more obsessed about doppeliners. Which causes everyone to worry about him, from his beautiful keeper, Akane, to his well-intentioned, but ultimately unhelpful, homeroom teacher. Meanwhile, the thug who failed to kill Kuro receives dire punishment from an outrageous looking villain, who’s an apocalypse-short of being in fashion.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekidou – A dance game I’d get

Kurokami: Black God, episode 1

I know nothing about the manga, except that it was written and drawn by a couple Korean guys.

Rarely does the adaption live up to the fan’s expectations based on original source material. Lucky for me, I can just comment on the anime without having to worry about that.

New Gundam 00 ED – Trust You

This is bound to make it back in a favorites post at some point in the future, but I really like the new ED. It’s called Trust You by Yuna Ito. The song’s got a simultaneously somber, yet hopeful sound, which fits the show really well (plus no engrish!). And the producers do another great job of picking out really beautiful and poignant scenes to include with it.
