September Hiatus

Ugh, school is not giving me enough time to put towards the blog, especially since it's senior year. Between the hours of AP homework, looking at colleges, work, and keeping touch with my friends I barely have enough to watch anime, let alone write about it. I'm sure once this first annoying month is over and I'm used to the workload I'll have more time to put towards the blog, but priorities. Yeah.

If I have time over the weekends I'll probably do some weekly summary posts, that sounds like it could work for now. (=

Mawaru Penguindrum 08: Delusions

They probably deserved it.

No .... nononono. I will not accept what happened this episode. Fyi, this post is spoilerific, so read at your own discretion.

I finally got around to starting Steins;Gate ...

And after watching episode 12 I am at a complete lose for words about what happened. I can say though that so far this is one of the most amazing series I've ever watched. Very few anime make me so curious that I search things like "John Titor" and "Time Travel", so shocked that I spend at least an hour after watching thinking about everything that happened, so fearful of the building atmosphere that I even had to minimize my window in episode 11 ... just in case, and so interested in every single character, even one who says "nyan". All the while also occasionally making me laugh, when just moments before things felt so intense.

Maybe I'm exaggerating, I tend to do that a lot, but it's just so amazing and I can't wait to continue on with the rest of the series ... but it's 1 AM and I'm really tired heh.

But first a question for you, have any anime series (or manga, or any form of media I suppose) impressed you so much that it lingered with you for hours, or even days, after? I guess for me the biggest example would be Grave of the Fireflies, which really struck me the first time I watched it, and even today I always think back to the initial feelings I had afterwards.

And I fully support the endorsement of Dr. Pepper, the greatest drink that ever was.

NO.6 09: Manhunt

no.6, no. 6, manhunt
Well, that was unexpected.

Something about this episode felt rushed, but if it wasn't I don't think it would have had the same effect on me. After last week's episode being a bit disappointing, I'm glad they decided to let actions speak for themselves. I was in shock at what happened and how quickly and out-of-nowhere it was, but at least now the brutality and cruelness of No.6 is more obvious to Shion. This post will probably have a lot of spoilers.
