しょしょ お待ち下さい

Standard

I’m working on the mecha list, really!  This is a reminder to myself that I should finish it. The delay has been caused by a mild writer’s block–what to write???!!  Hehehe.  To calm myself, I just finished rewatching Aria the Origination.  Of course it was not an ordinary re-watch–I had finished the show the first time by watching it raw.  So I watched it again with subs.  And still, I could not help but cry again at Alicia’s retirement.  T_T

Alicia!!

In retrospect, maybe I should have blogged this show way back when it aired.  But I was not so confident of my Nihongo skills then.  Although now I feel my proficiency slipping away with disuse.  I could be looking at my gushing posts right now if I had done it back then!

I feel an urge to move on to the manga.  However, I gotta get a new job first hehehe.  Till next, ja!

P.S.

Remember that I wanted to do another post on the Macross F movie.  I was going to compare it to Macross F series.  But, horror of horrors, I hadn’t even reviewed the series!   Aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhh.  That post will have to wait, if it ever comes out.  Or I could wait for the next movie, next year.  ^_^;

  1. Alicia’s retirement felt like the death of some great statesman or leader, without the funeral of course. It was a celebration and acknowledgement of her achievements that most people do not get either alive or dead. And that says a lot, especially after watching Alice Carroll’s graduation from Pair to Prma which in itself was such a beautiful moment.

    Okay, now you got me digging through my DVDs. I am going to spend a perfectly good afternoon watching this series again.

  2. I want a prequel with all three Water Fairies (Alicia, Athena and Akari) but we know that will never happen– but yes I can dream.

    And please read the manga. Just like drama CDs, it’s the next best thing to experiencing anything new in the Aria universe after the anime ended.

    P.S. I really want an OVA with Athena after her undine career ended. I can see it now, Athena Glory the Diva Years.

  3. I saw an Aqua manga in a local bookstore. However, my budget doesn’t include manga right now, especially with my expense-cutting. That will be on my wishlist for next year. 😀

    >>P.S. I really want an OVA with Athena after her undine career ended.

    I’m imagining what kind of bloopers Athena would be making in the rehearsals 😛
