Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Or at least an exciting Thursday if you’re in one of those places that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving. This Umineko post notwithstanding, I’m basically taking a weeklong break from writing to spend some quality family time. I’m also looking forward to the winter season kicking off soon. There’s a handful of possibly excellent shows that I’m looking forward to following.
For whatever reason I got a particular kick out of this episode. Maybe it was the cat exercise montage (classic) or maybe it was the nekko twist on the classic misunderstanding of a boy "accidentally" ending up with a girl’s bra and getting caught (sad to say I have never heard of this happening in real life).
Kingdom Hearts is back. This time to tell the story of Roxas, Axel and Organization XIII. The best compliment I can give this game is that it has made me want to unquit the abomination that was Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories and give it another shot. That game’s stupid card system really pissed me off. But anyway this post was about 358/2.
Roxas, Xion and Axel chillin’. Source.
No Battler, no Beatrice, and smashed rabbits makes me a sad blogger. The background on Ange and Maria was helpful, but I do miss the stars of the show.
Nyan Koi’s been fairly consistent, but it’s getting somewhat formulaic and getting stuck in "pretty good" land. Or basically, it is what I thought it would be when the season began. The fleeting hints of Seto no Hanayome greatness were probably just that – hints. Which isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy this last episode, because I did. It just wasn’t anything special.
A little bit of love for the relatively recently released OVA of Nodame Cantabile, in prep for covering the third and final season during the winter.
Holy cow, did DEEN even look at this episode before airing it? The white highlights and soft glows were unbearably bright. Half the time you couldn’t even make out the lines on the characters’ faces. Budget saving tactic by skimping on details? Whatever the thought, this episode looked awful.
I hate talking about myself. Doing so makes me blush brighter than Hinagiku sharing a moment in an onsen. Even my "site stuff" category is very bare. In the near year I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve written a site-introspective post just 4 times. One being my standard "hello world" post, and the last one way back in February when I finally replaced the standard Atahualpa horticultural header images with something more fitting.
Keep the cats coming. The twin-tails were a nice cherry on top. Now, the Princess Lover style black holes under miniskirts was an unwelcome censorship. Seriously, what’s going on with that.
