Status Update

I happen to be watching Revolutionary Girl Utena at the moment and I’m surprised, what will all the comparisons people make between it and Star Driver, that this piece of photoshopping hasn’t been done yet. Hence I decided to do it myself, in an attempt to liven up an otherwise dull status update post.

First impression season is as good as over now. The only one left is Kuragehime (Noitamina being fashionably late as usual). For the ones I haven’t covered, the only one I actually watched was Psychic Detective Yakumo, which I have nothing interesting to say about whatsoever. I’m not going to bother touching Fortune Arterial, Milky Holmes and Yosuga no Sora. They’re all VN adaptations. My first impressions post would simply consist of this


I was planning to go all out and blog as many anime this season as possible, but rather few of them ended up grabbing my attention. For now, I’ve settled on Bakuman, Ore no Imouto and Arakawa Under the Bridge. I don’t plan on blogging Kuragehime unless it leaps out of my laptop screen, grabs me by the collar and shakes me vigorously until I do so. That means my blogging plans for the rest of the year are sorted. I’ve got more than enough assorted posts planned to keep me going. More Retro Season Previews, updated Winter Chart, 12 Days of Christmas posts and plenty of other assorted bits and bobs that will keep the blog ticking over nicely for the next 3 months. Life is good~

On a totally unrelated not, there’s an Anime Movie Day during the Leeds International Movie Festival, which just so happens to be within walking distance of where I go to university. They’re showing a bunch of stuff, but the two I’m really interested in seeing are Redline and the European Premiere of Mardock Scramble. There’s screenings on the 19th Nov (Friday) and 21st Nov (Sunday). If I have any British readers, I would love to meet some of you there so do leave a comment if you plan on coming. I haven’t decided which day to go on yet but it’ll probably be the Friday. Now they’re still a long way away but last year I only heard about this thing two days before it started and the tickets were sold out by then so you might want to get your tickets early.

    Scampu, Idk if I can ask this, but being totally off topic right now, are you a ginger?

      I’m shocked! How could you say such a terrible thing! Does my writing read like I have no soul?

      jk, no I have dark brown hair

        Damnit D: My friend has a fetish for gingers.

        Oh yeah, and I asked because you’re Irish <3

        LOL! Does the world really think the entire island is populated by gingers?

        ……..although I am a redhead so can’t really comment XD

        I figured it wasn’t POPULATED by them, but the only other ginger person I know happens to be a neo-nazi, so I wanted to change that :(

        As for you Hana, It’s not just because of the Doctor, my just has a fetish for gingers.

      LOL! Where did that come from?! Oh, actually, I guess Dr Who seems to have a thing for gingers lately, doesn’t he…

    You know you’ve probably opened the floodgates for a torrent of fabulousUtena/Star Driver photoshops now….yay!

      I await them eagerly

    Ooh, you’re watching Utena, eh – ENJOY! :D

    Oh, and hope you enjoy the festival when you do go, would’ve been cool to meet you there and admire your lovely dark brown hair, but it’s too damn far away for my lazy Londoner arse. Another time, perhaps. :)

      If I decide to trudge my lazy arse all the ways down to London Expo, will you do the opposite?

      • Posted October 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm | Permalink

        Well, when you put it like that, that sounds like a fun deal: my issues, though, are that I have to work on that Friday, so, out of the two days you mentioned, Sunday would be better for me, which means I’d either come up for the day or stay the night and come back on the Monday… IF (again) I can be arsed to do all that, and persuade at least one other matey to join me. In short: no promises, mate, but defo let me know if you’re coming to the London Expo later this month, only if you were planning to come anyway, of course.

        idk if I will go to London Expo. It’s still too far away and costs enough money just to get there, forget all the money I’ll inevitably end up spending inside the bloody place. Eh, I’ll make my mind up on that closer to the date

    How far is Leeds from Oxford?
    (US student who just moved to the UK, no idea of geography yet/ease of transportation here haha)

      absolutley no idea =D

      Remember I just moved here too. I’m getting better at English geography, but I have no idea where Oxford is

    What I am looking forward are the retro season previews =P

    Leeds is not as far from Manchester as London, obviously
    So if I feel lazy I might go if I feel greedy I’ll probably be working lol
    If I get friends to go with me I will surely go

      From the rave reviews I’ve been hearing, Redline alone is worth the trip

        You know what ?
        You are probably right, Redline and Mardock Scramble sound like something to be looking forward to.
        I already asked one of my friends (not an anime fan unfortunately) to go with me, so I might be there. (probably on a Friday)
        who knows ho ho ho ho

    Yosuga no Sora may be worth watching if only because of the traiwreck potential.

    So happy to hear you are finally watching RGU =)

      I did say I was going to watch Utena as soon as I finished Galactic Heroes. It just so happens that LOGH took me 4-5 months to complete because it’s 110 episodes long and I kept getting distracting by assorted early 90’s OVA’s, as you would

    I’ll have a look into that weekend to see if I can make it. I might be at a stag-do in Kraków, but nothings been booked yet. I only live in Preston (sunny Lancashire!) and often spend my weekends in Sheffield, so in either case the distance is pretty small. Heres hoping…

      Preston? Sheffield? Clearly my english geography is still hopelessly lacking. To me, these names are just teams in my football manager game =|
