It’s funny how too much overtime leads to a post.
So basically since I’ve been going home at 12 midnight and sleeping at 2 AM almost everyday for 2 weeks now, I’m finding it hard to go back to the usual sleeping time at 12. But how is the anime-watching progress? It’s suffering but of course there should be time for it no matter how small, right?
Hayate no Gotoku!!
Dropped. It isn’t as funny as the first season.
Fullmetal Alchemist 2
Plodding on. Not really on my priority list
Dropped. The fact that I didn’t like the drawing style added to the dislike of the show.
Same as FMA 2.
I haven’t progressed because of the lack of subs and the lack of time.
Eden of the East (Higashi no Eden)
I wrote a post about it yesterday (the first post born out of insomnia this month). I’m not really positive about the direction the series is heading but as long as there are ‘scenic’ moments I’m happy. 🙂
Saved the spring season from being a total disappointment. This is the no. 1 priority on my watchlist right now. :) Meanwhile, usagijen is struggling pimping it. With other shows, just adding the description ‘moe’ would immediately generate interest. Cross Game, on the other hand, is wholesome. I like the story better than Ookiku Furikabutte’s.
In other news…
Or not so new news. psgels, unlike me, has a lot of time in his hands. (I envy you!) He has been watching shows like Maria-sama ga Miteru and Macross. These are two of my most favorite shows and it’s good to read his comments about it. He even writes about ‘Anime is dying‘ doom scenarios. As for me, the biggest enemy of the studios are probably not the pirates. It’s the dwindling number of kids who are their primary customers, the next generation of anime-watchers. A lot of people outside of Japan will not pay (or are not capable of paying) for their pricey DVDs.
tj_han writes about American comics. As for me, I got introduced to American comics way before I even learned about the existence of manga. And I have very fond memories of it. I was mainly into Marvel Comics. Oops, not really me; just that the boys around me were. I really didn’t have the means to buy comics then; now that I have a job I seem to have outgrown my fascination for American comic books, particularly those from Marvel. And with staff rotation, I have to slightly disagree on that. Sure it has its drawbacks, but if there was no staff rotation, I wouldn’t be able to admire the art of Joe Madureira. I was just drooling over it back then.
Now to prevent me from drooling at work due to sleepiness, that’s it for this update. Ja! 😀
