My Spring 2013 List [update: mar 24]

[anime]spring2013

It’s been awhile since I’ve listed seasonal animes I plan to check. Mm, rather than “awhile” more like, it’s been FOREVER, really. Last time I did one was possibly in 2008 or 2009… 2 years would’ve been reasonable, but I haven’t actually made a blog post for around 4 years or so. What an accomplishment! Thanks, procrastination. *sarcasm*

To be honest, I wasn’t even planning to do one, but for some reason, something was pushing me to actually write one up. No worries, it’s really just little bits of info, like summary or casts, at most. Because that’s usually what pulls me in to check these titles – other than the art.

This post contains trailers.

impressions: Kotoura-san

I’ve already watched 3 episodes of this show, and each time I always wanted to write up a blog entry to express how I feel about it. I’m not saying it’s one of the greatest shows I’ve watched in awhile, but well, I think for comedy and drama, you can say this one is right under AIC’s other work, Acchi Kocchi for comedy. (Which is one great short slice of life, and hilarious anime. You should give it a try if you haven’t yet.) And as for drama, it’s pretty continuous, unlike most shows that air these days, so it’s hard which title to mention that slightly even resembles it.

Skip Beat! Drama CDs Update

ヴァレンタイン兵器

According to this blog I came across with while searching google for Skip Beat! drama CDs, there has been actually… 2 drama CD releases now (if you disregard the very first one before the anime came out, of course). The newest one was just released today. (Luckily I was online on my twitter else I probably would not have known)

EDIT: Update on the 2nd Drama CD release.

Skip Beat! Anime: What could have been…

So I’ve been pondering… As the years go by, we get more female-oriented titles being made into anime. So that made me wonder:

What if the series got decided to be turned into anime at this time, and by a different production company, would it have gotten more popular and MIGHT even get a second season?

Taken from the 5pb PS2 otome game.

With that in mind, I answered myself. “Possibly.”

first impressions: Berserk

Hi guys, it’s been awhile, huh? I’ve been wanting for sooooo long to actually write up something, to be honest, but for some odd reason, my motivation always fails me.

Anyways, this time around, I’m trying to change my ways. So here I am!

So for today, I’m writing about my impression on the anime title, Berserk. Hehe, I know, I know, such an OLD anime…but I heard it’s getting a movie next year! Well, I only did find out after I watched the first episode though. Hahaha! (Though, how old or new a title is, doesn’t matter to me ^ 3^/)
