After some Ume rain showers, Japan is about to enter it's hottest period, with kiddies on their summer break, bikini-clad ladies jumping around on sandy beaches, some occasional nosebleeds and a rather high humidity to sweat and work out that body.
Ahhh.... how I love Summmer!
But who cares?!
Lets move onto more important issues...
We're already half way through this solstice, but our summer lineup has just begun! And quite a few promising titles are living up to their expectations.
18 series + 10 OVAs, including a few series which have not ended from last spring. Of course, this has led to a bad case of eye-bags, sleep deprivation and the usual symptoms which are to follow. And the FIFA World Cup ain't helping either...
Not that I'm interested in football, but it does come once every 4 years (and the fact I wanna see the fall of Spain and 'Paul the Octopus' get thrown into the shark tank).
But I do have my source of motivation to keep on watching, which comes from Haruka!
I did say I was gonna touch on a few... but the number of awesome titles and sequels got the better of me. And doesn't it always? Haha.
Hope your summer has more jiggling bikinis, sandy beaches and a lot wetter than mine. xD
(FYI: In case you haven't noticed by now, all names are arranged with "last + first" sequence.
No, I don't follow western naming. It sounds weird...
Yes, this is how you remember and properly call them in Japan)
Ookami Ryouko Katsura Hinagiku
Suprisingly, Itou-san was chosen for a yankeedere character. Not that I'm complaining, but it's a nice change of pace from girlish-voiced characters. Nyaa~!
Akai Ringo Serizawa Fumino
In case some of you have noticed, she looks like "Little Red Riding Hood".
And in case some of you have NOT noticed, the characters are similar to the story;
a wolf, a red hooded girl and a hunter
Marino Ryoushi Saji Crossroad
As always, he's been chosen for a "no-balls" character. Well, Saji did find a pair at the ending arc...
