It’s great to purchase anime that have recently finished, but eventually years down the line (if demand is high enough), they may be re-released with improved quality and redone masters according to the standards set by that time. While improved video quality may be enough to capture the purchases of the diehard fans that anime companies are aiming for, there are a multitude of ways fans can be further satisfied with buying their favorite series yet again.
Personally, if one of my old favorite series was retouched and released with a new eye-candy resolution, I would buy it regardless. However, there are more than several ways that these re-releases can satisfy my needs as a fan – which I will delve into, right after the jump.
These crossdressing-play episodes are full of hilarity. There’s a “Princess Syaoran and Prince Sakura” chapter in the manga, which is adapted into a later episode in the second season, but I love it how Madhouse basically one-upped the manga by giving Touya a crossdressing episode as well.
Oh yeah, aside from hilarity, those strange fangirls probably found some sick pleasure in seeing Touya in drag. 😛
The college quarter kept me away from this place so long that it almost became “Wahfuu! The Visual Novel Blog.” Yet, I’ve tried to keep up with anime somewhat.
However, I have been keeping up with Chuu2Koi, at the very least (planning on having a marathon of Psycho-Pass and Little Busters! afterwords, though I’m afraid the latter might ruin the visual novel somewhat for me since I’ve been reading that instead). Funnily enough, the series is going the complete opposite direction of what was suggested by a couple of people (that it had the possibility of “deteriorating into love-triangle BULLSHIT”) and I’m LOVING it.
The dark types are such fun sometimes. The evil looks in their eyes, the dark stoic deadpan in their voice, the ungodly fear that she might just kill you before you manage to break through the evil fog of emotions. All this goes into a rather intense emotional experience as you work stone by stone, piece by piece and tear by painful tear to get to her heart, leaving you with a lot of satisfaction and manly( or womanly) tears at the end when you finally see that smile you’ve been yearning for.
So, with that in mind, let’s talk about someone completely different!
Well it would seem all self-control has been lost. I’m not talking about “Rin about throwing a baseball at Masato-tier” lack of self-control, no I’m talking about the level of self-control one must lack in order to do it the way the anime showed it (launching the poor Master of Muscle several feet). Or rather, the self-control was lost a few weeks ago, November 12 to be exact. I feel like a picture is worth a thousand words, however, especially when the picture is actually just more words, but nevertheless, I present to you the following.
