Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! 02

An imaginative budget

An imaginative budget…?

I have an operation tomorrow morning, so this post won’t be as screenshot heavy or as long, even though this episode had lots of awesome and humorous moments!

So far, the characters of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! haven’t struck me as unlikable or anything of the sort. Along with the sweet animation sequences that this episode provided, I think Kyoto Animation has something promising here. Though it does make me ache for another Haruhi Suzumiya or Full Metal Panic! (anytime this century, please! :P).

Rikka: totally my favorite character this season – excluding a handful of the Little Busters! cast, of course.

Oh yes, and there probably won’t be any posts for a few days while I’m in bed recovering. By the time I do, my Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus would have come in and I will be fired up to continue my rewatch-blogging of remastered Cardcaptor Sakura (been focusing too much on new shows, I have literally finished rewatching the precious thing a couple of months ago, but haven’t finished blogging it yet D:).

Let’s Watch Little Busters! 01

We are the Little Busters!!

Mikoto Finally, the anime I’ve been waiting for, well, forever! I’ve been a bit sketchy about it not being done by KyoAni, who are pretty much the only company that has ever done VN adaptations right. But I’ve decided to give J.C. Staff the benefit of an open mind, and so I’m going into this first episode with absolutely no bias.

Mr. Lex Well, you can keep your lack of bias because J.C. Staff gives me convulsions. I don’t even know how they tricked me into trusting them and getting excited for this adaptation. If they screw it up I’m going to lose it.

Wahfuu My own excitement will kill me here, I swear. And it’s not like I can even pretend to not have a bias towards the visual novel. Look at my damn name. Either way, I have put down the torch and pitchforks and encourage everyone to do the same for now. We’ll mass the swarm later.

Perfect Blue – Review

Don't let the smile fool you, she doesn't want to do it

If anyone were to name a significant lost for the anime industry, Satoshi Kon would be one of them. I still hold onto the idea that his Paranoia Agent remains one of the best anime that has aired on television. He was just one of those directors that constantly proved again and again that anime isn’t just for children through his own works that showcased a blend of psychology and societal problems – they should easily be considered some of the best Japanese films in general, not just animated. Right up there with the likes of screenplay writer Chiaki J. Konaka and director Hideaki Anno in terms of quality work in anime.

To honor this man, let’s look into one of his first and best works – Perfect Blue. A psychological thriller flick that delves into sense of identity, losing your grip on reality, as well as the stressful and paranoia-fueled “dark side” of celebrity life.

Eyepatch moe

I don’t know if it’s a side-effect of being an anime fan or playing too much Japanese video games, but if I were the MC of an anime and met an eccentric girl (in a cute way) that thought she was the envoy of the dark abyss and yelled out her “attacks”, I’d join in on her crazy antics despite everyone thinking I’m a lunatic.

Maybe in real life too, but then again I *am* insane. 😛 Haha, funny anime, Kyoto Animation.
