First of all, woohoo to the fact that they didn’t go the way i expected. Secondly, it seems now that the producers are focusing on the Team no.2 and katana girl’s links with them. That’s fine and all, but how on earth will they link ep 1 to everything else? Heck, i don’t really care actually, the action’s good enough to keep me hooked for now. I really need to take Nihongo lessons when my exams end, i’m fed up having to wait for subs and missing out on all the scoops while everyone else is battering away at their keyboards.

Har har har. I must say that BONES likes messing with people’s brains. Thanks to this ep i have a renewed appetite for Furuichi-b/tard bashing, plus another ten helpings or so. Normally i don’t believe the ‘once a loser, always a loser’ doctrine, but for b/tard’s case i’ll believe it any day. But i was highly amused by Akushiba’s belting out power rock-songs at the preview for next week. Unfortunately i’ve been seeing on various blogs that Xam’d in the US won’t be rolling out any new grub after this until Japan reaches ep 12-13 as well. Le sigh.

Move over, Ken. Lelouch, you can go back to Suzaku. I have 1 new hot male to gush over, and his name is Sebastien.

Ohmygod i have a shitload of stuff to update! Anime overload! Will have to post Xam’d ep 13 and Kuroshitsuji ep 1-2 later since i’m lagging behind with Tales of the Abyss. Well, i’m glad i stuck around with it, it’s gotten more than usual flak for basically having a blah plot pacing. My verdict? It’s not as awesome as i would have liked from a fantasy game adaptation, but IMO it’s not the worst show of the season. GONZO won an almost unanimous vote with Kurogane no Linebarrel, and i must say they pulled it off magnificently.

Whee. Another sci-fi series. Although i don’t understand why this series is being aired once every 2 months. It gives too much time for viewers to forget about the plot in general, not good if you want them to stay hooked.

Go Nagi! Use your pwnage flirtation skills!

After struggling with all the computers in the house last week, i have finally given up. I will post in school from now on. Lately the broadband connection has been cooperating very well, so i’ve had the chance to catch up on Eve no Jikan and (unfortunately) go back to Ergo Proxy. Also, i’ve been stuck in the music studio for 1.5 days and counting because A level submission of my music compositional portfolio is next morning. As you can see, i’ve been watching stuff to prevent myself from going insane, and i am highly embarrassed delighted to say that Ga-Rei-Zero bashes all the expectations i had.  I have a sneaky suspicion that this week’s episode is either a prologue to the real juice, or that whoever’s left afterwards will be the main protagonist. Research on the manga last week proved to be useless, because the anime apparently has little or nothing to do with it.

When i finally get darned Photoshop up and running at home, i will post screencaps with abandon. For now, readers (if any) will have to suffer text, text and more text with stupid interjections scattered in places. Ep 12 was a good solid one, though not as cohesive as 11. I am very pleased that Ishu’s character is much, much more complex than her outward snappy sergeant demeanour, and it’s very likely we’ll see more of her in the weeks to come. Furuichi, however b/tarded he is, has to get some credit as well for being a redeemable loser with an inferiority complex, and as much as i hate him right now, i hope he’ll reconcile with Akayuki eventually. And, of course, accept that he can’t beat a haxxor Xam’d in contending for the hand of Haru =/

FYI, i’ve just received the biggest shock of my life as i’ve accidentally deleted the entire content of my first 2 posts. All because i was fiddling around with the WordPress functions and trying to do the equivalent of the LJ cut, which operates entirely differently from the ‘insert more tag’ here. Oh well. Can’t live life without learning, can we. At any rate, i’ve duly learnt my lesson. I’ll try to salvage the other posts on Monday or so, but i don’t think it’s of much importance.

To make sure i don’t forget, i’ve typed a list of everything i’m planning to watch.

Since Blassreiter and Nijuu Mensou no Musume ended some 2 weeks ago, i might as well give my two cents on these. I would have preferred to give a summary-review instead, but recently my brain and fingers don’t work fast enough. They weren’t particularly fantastic. In fact, they unravelled in chaos somewhere towards the end, then managed to salvage the plot in one frayed piece, which i think is a really big shame, since both had alot of potential as breakaway series.
