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.
