Newcomers in the top five! And ‘current faves’ lists!
The Top 5
Still in top position. I actually have no idea how the series ended as the subs are slow, but I’m also not interested in spoiling myself either. There’s not a show from spring 2007 that has potential to challenge NANA yet (though Claymore is getting close), but we’ll see, there’s still summer and fall hehehe.
Okay, it really started with the Slashers arc. After seeing episode 9, I couldn’t wait a whole week for another episode–and ended up reading the conclusion to the fight in the manga. But then I couldn’t stop my curiosity anymore and ended up reading about the next two arcs. Darn, it’s taking a lot of willpower NOT to read about the war in the north. Claymore is just too awesome now to ignore.
#3 Saiunkoku no Monogatari
Finally breaks into the top five, but for season 1 only. I hate the new animation sequence in the OP of season 2. And I also don’t like the new ED.
#4 Code GEASS
A mecha show must be on this list. So far, the spring challengers to CG’s throne as best mecha show have failed to impress. But it still hasn’t stopped CG’s slide in the rankings.
#5 Nodame Cantabile
Still stuck in last position. I don’t think this series is gonna rise any higher, it hasn’t delivered anything substantial so far. I guess it would not be good to expect anything more from this show. But I loved episode 11, probably the best episode so far for me.
- Moonlight Mile
Every episode there’s always the feeling of ‘what’s gonna happen next? what? what?’ But that’s good, because it means it wouldn’t be boring at all. Now if only something more dramatic happens in this show…
- Seirei no Moribito
I really, really like the animation of this one. I also like Chagum very much, he’s not annoying, is not a crybaby, and is not spoiled. I hope the story keeps up like the animation. 🙂
- Lovely Complex
Poor Risa, going through that harrowing ride known as the ‘confession.’ Still, how this series is remembered will depend on how it ends.
- Hayate no Gotoku!
This was actually in my original top 5 list for this post, but lately the laughs haven’t been all that many. It is fun just trying to catch what series or character the show would parody, but after that, then what? It was never as crazy as the first season of School Rumble though, so perhaps it might never enter the top 5 formally.
- Death Note
Out of the top five, and unwatched eps are languishing in the hard disk. I really have gotten bored with the show.
- Toward Terra
This show is quite decent, it still manages to hold my interest despite the absence of the main character Jomy. The introduction of an interesting character as Keith is nice, and adds a little more spice. I’m hoping for more and better episodes of this show.
- Ookiku Furikabute
I have been watching the raws because at the rate the subs are going, they might finish next year lol. Anyway, my only disadvantage is that it’s harder to understand with the baseball lingo.
As for the other shows, haven’t watched a lot at all because of the manga craze that’s gotten over me. But still I’ve managed to make another list of sorts. Read on.
Current Favorite Male Characters
- Yoshimori (Kekkaishi) – Yoshimori’s cute when he’s making sweets. ^_^;
- Chagum (Seirei no Moribito) – He’s such a good kid. Lucky Mommy Balsa. 🙂
Current Favorite Female Characters
- Teresa (Claymore) – Too bad she only shows up in a few episodes.
- Balsa (Seirei no Moribito) – Nice voice, even better combat skills.
I wanted to add Galatea (again from Claymore), but Ophelia’s arc hasn’t even aired yet. Tsk tsk tsk…
