Here’s a Puella Magi Madoka Magica parody of GARO‘s episode previews to celebrate
I’m like, two months late on this, but I just heard that the live-action GARO franchise was getting its own anime that will air some time this year. I’m a pretty big fan of the series, and I always thought that the style of the series and the universe itself was very fit for an anime series, so I’m pretty confident that I’ll enjoy it as a fan. I hear it’s not going to be an adaptation of the first GARO though (which, honestly, was something I was always hoping for), and instead it’s going to be a completely original story taking place in the same canon. I’m not all too worried though – since the director for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and Shingeki no Kyoujin is apparently on-board with the project, so I’m actually pretty confident that it will (at least) be above average even if it doesn’t turn out to be really great. But we’ll see. I wonder what animation studio will be in charge of it? Well, whatever the studio is, they better get JAM Project to do the theme songs again, as well as the original composers for the OST.
Very recently and by coincidence, I mentioned GARO in my Final Impressions post of Kyoukai no Kanata. Perhaps this is the anime that will fill in for my missed expectations of that series? Probably not, but regardless, I do enjoy grittier demon-hunting stories in the vein of GARO and Ga-Rei Zero, so this might be up my alley either way. I’ve also did a generic post about GARO‘s first episode back in eighth grade or something, but you probably shouldn’t read that since I was even worse back then than I am now.
Off-Topic: I just finished the first episode of Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren today, and will be posting about it later today.
Winter Break is over, my next college quarter has started, and of course I’ve also finished watching Kyoukai no Kanata prior to that.
I must say that the conclusion of Kyoukai no Kanata pretty much sealed my opinion of the series – that is to say, it hasn’t changed quite much. This post isn’t going to be as long as my other Final Impressions posts because, honestly, there isn’t quite much to say about the series.

Now that it’s Winter Break and I’ve escaped the hectic college life for the time being, I can devote more time into the blog. Let’s give a round-of-applause to free time
not being eaten up by the PS3 and Pocket Monsters X! That being said, here’s my updated thoughts on the leftovers from the Autumn Anime season. I’ve put Kyousogiga on-hold for the time being, so I can marathon it all at once the moment it’s finished, in order write about this fantastic series in a separate well-deserved post.
Kill la Kill‘s pretty much near its halfway point, whilst Kyoukai no Kanata has one episode left to go. Let’s get this quick run-down started!

If you follow my Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve decided to switch to a congregated posting style for the rest of school year to keep my schedule from going out of control. School, parties, Pocket Monsters X (Japanese version, FC: 4656-6263-1690), and the PS3 all take a surprising chunk of my time nowadays. Anime blogging? What anime blogging?
Mind you, I’ve totally been keeping up with the autumn anime line-up alongside those activities. Currently, the series on my watch-list are as follows: Kill la Kill, Kyoukai no Kanata, and Kyousogiga. Now, as others have pointed out, yes, I noticed that they all form the, um, KKK. But I’m no conspiracy theorist! Besides, this was made in Japan and, well, howaito piggu go homu.
(Speaking of KKK, I have yet to watch Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku…)
