Supposed to see a delayed BRS this month. D=
Otonashi backstabs, Yui's resuts are better than mine D=Hagaren is ending both works simultaneously D=
I'm so into Kotori-chan, sorry Takanashi-kun D=A "colours" war is at hand while Izaya redefines the "scum of the Earth" D=Shinji grew some balls at the last second of 2.22, D=Asuka's spanking new plugsuit had a miserable 2 minutes worth of airtime. D=And we're at the end of Spring's lineup with my last post D=
All's Right With The World indeed...
Signaling that time of the year again, where showers would sprinkle themselves over Japanese lawns as the rainy season approaches the land of the samurai.
Its June again, people.
Apart from the miserable weather, summer break is around the corner for the kids in Nippon, and I've just re-adjusted my forgotten routine of waking up early for lectures as I drag my sleepy arse back to uni again after a 2 month break. As of late, my bio clock has yet to shifted back from London's time zone, while I keep up with Japan's as well, thanks to all nighters. But enough about the weather and my boring 3D life.
June is a mixed blessing, with old titles about to be swept under the carpet of abyss where many titles are put to rest. On the other hand, new promising series are popping up like June brides as this season is (supposedly) better than the last. Mixed feelings at the end, but I'll get over it like every other season. Summer's lineup has already started, with a couple of OVA and OAD bound for June release, followed closely by a string of animes which further reduces my already deprived but precious hours of sleep.
Yeap, it's June
As this is my last for Spring 2010, I'll cram as much as I can for this month, akin to a student preparing for finals tomorrow, as he stuffs in as much as possible. As for Summer, I'll touch on a few series to cover (though "few" is rather subjective in my terms).
With that, I bid Spring, farewell...
Naoi Ayato Ikari Shinji
In case you haven't noticed, both characters had/have a father complex in trying to impress and satisfy their parent's wishes. With a potter master and Commander Ikari playing hard ball as usual, both sons are a little touched in the head.
Hang in there, Shinji. You're finally starting to sprout some balls for a change. But you're still an ass, so I'll forgive you for until the next installment of Eva.
Takeyama Christ Shirakawa Naoya
His airtime is decreasing with each week, which is not surprising for a techie. Apart from being seen in Haruhi, all is fine.
Yui Todoroki Yachiyo
Otonashi; I'll never forgive you. Although your intention may be sound, you've created another hole in Girl Dead Monsters.
"Thousand Enemies" rocks, and I can't wait for the next album, "Little Braver" which should be out by now.
Maybe replacing Iwasawa wasn't a bad idea after all?
Honoka Taneshima Popura
I'm gradually coming to love Working!! Ever since Kotori-chan, that is. But I'll stick around for this loli. "Goodness comes in tiny packages" after all. =D
[Sanbaka][Terashima Takuma, Ichiki Mitsuhiro, Hosoya Yoshimasa]
I'm quite shocked too. Well, I'll let you off here after I list down their names. (left to right)
Sarashina Ikuto = Kubo Toshimitsu (baka test)
Shirokawa Naoya = Takeyama Christ (Angel beats!)
Kurosaki Ryuunosuke = Yasuri Shicika (Katanagatari)
Etou Fujiko Takei Hisa
As a reminder, Saki S2 was confirmed at the end of S1, with a short preview of the following tournaments. This show kind off made me take up mahjong for real, so it's really fun in short.
Korone Kannagi Noel
A busy woman indeed. I'm counting 2 roles for this season and that's only as support characters. Still, Korone is rather....errr.....coy, to say the least.
Shirashi Lily Nagomi Shiraishi
Well, they're both in the student council. Kind off.
She plays another role, which I'm covering here if you stick with me and scroll down a little more. Guess who?
Teruya Eiko Lala Satalin Deviluke
Wow. Never thought Tomatsu-san would take up this kind of role. But then, I never would have thought she'd take up a lot of other characters, so whatever then.
But the outgoing part is similar in this case, as both can't see to keep their clothes on.
Satou Jun Heiwajima Shizuo
This guy is practically epic. Name me any character more GAR than Shizuo-chan. I dare you.
No, Shizzy-chan dares YOU.
Really love how DRRR is playing out, with 3 powers ready to spill blood on each other.
Souma Hiroomi Ichinomiya "Recruit" Kou
Another role for Arararagi. =P
But as Izaya, he's a bastard, so I can't forgive him that easily.
Takanashi Izumi Akiyama Mio
I feel rather sad for Izumi, even if Mio is supposedly a good writer. Oh yeah, one more thing;
My fatherly instincts have awaken, so hands off loli-Mio. Dibs on her already. =P
Takanashi Kozue Katsura Hinagiku
Everyone's favourite waifu is back as a drunkard. I've yet to finish Hayate S2, so I'll try to later this month.
Takanashi Kazue Sumiyoshi Kaneko
I wonder if Nyan Koi will have another season? Ratings were quite good, so I'm praying to Kami-neko for another 12 episodes of goodness and curses.
Takanashi Nazuna Shishidou Sakura
Another budding seiyuu. Too bad all her roles till now are rather minor. Let's see if someone casts her this summer.
Yamada Aoi Fujibashi Kyou
Yamada is rather annoying but not to the extent of dislike, so all is cool.
Clannad BD is out, so it's time to rewatch the series in it's Blu-Ray glory ^^.
Otoo Hyougo Araya Souren
This guy here is a veteran. You might recognise him in other noteable shows like Sgt. Keroro and Fate series.
He's the short-tempered, red froggie, Giroro, as well as Kotomine Kirei.
Kouya Daigorou Takasu Ryuuji
I swear, he's gay. There are signs I tell you.
Kikuchi Ieyasu Allelujah/Hallelujah Haptism
From a ruthless survivalist to 2D otaku worshiper. Well, he tries.
But I looking forward to this September for the Gundam 00 movie ^^
And another 6 months before the DVD/BD's come out D=
Tanaka Yuutori Tepes Mina
For those who don't know, this show is "Yuutori-chan", a web-streamed show. Each episode is rather short, lasting at max, 5 min?
Tsumekomi Shiori Tachibana Kaede
But I'm just watching this for Hanekawa's sake. >_<
Btw, this is her 5th role for this season alone. ^^
Dankain Reiko Yuuki RitoI was kinda hoping Rito would have another OVA as a girl, but that's just me =3
