Hmm, metablogging has its advantages.
In the course of the catch-up on blogs, I pored over past posts at Ani-Nouto for anything that might interest me. Jackpot!
I saw the item on Omni’s exit from anime blogging. And it was the answer to my question of why RandomC didn’t have a spring season preview when Hashihime already had one. It feels like the end of an era. I remember that it was one of the first batch of blogs that I frequented before I decided to blog myself. And the anime I distinctly remember researching about was Fate-Stay Night. That was before I decided the lead was an annoying brat.
This transition strikes a chord with me, as I am also undergoing a transition myself. No, I’m not quitting blogging just yet, if you ask me if this blog will also cease operations in the coming months. But if you ask me if this blog might still be alive one year from now, then, I cannot answer that decisively.
Speaking of spring previews, I guess there’s no other source for me now except hashime. I am not sure if I will eventually watch everything, but below are the shows that have piqued my interest.
Armored Trooper Votoms: Phantom Arc – It’s mecha, what else can I say?
Ookiku Furikabutte 2 – Yes!!!! Another serving of baseball anime to succeed Cross Game!
Giant Killing – I am not really into soccer but I am curious.
xxxHOLIC Rou – Yay more Watanuki!!!!! And I hope the animation is also as good (or even better) than the 2nd season.
Ai no Kusabi – I first heard about this from Iwa ni Hana blog. The curiousity factor jumps in, and it’s supposedly science fiction.
