[Lists 2015] Ranking the Haikasoru book stash

Standard

Finally, after having bought and read the last of the books I most coveted from the Haikasoru lineup last year, I have now made a ranking of the books I’ve read!  Please note that since these books were bought over the years, I have forgotten details from when I read them first.  And foolishly I did not even write down notes that could have helped me make better comments about most of the books.  So my impressions are from memory.  For example, I don’t really remember much about Slum Online so my conclusion is that it must not have made that much of an impact on me.  Also take note I haven’t also done reviews on the science because I just wanted to know what happens.  For a discussion of the science (or the unscientific) you’ll have to read other reviews for that.  These are just my feelings about the books.

50 Questions Answered

Standard

It’s been a long time since I responded to ‘current events’ in the anime blogosphere.  What’s ‘in’ now is the 50 questions post.  So to bring back some more life to this blog I’m posting my own answers to the 50 questions.  I’ve slightly changed some of the questions though.

[Lists 2011] Fictional schools in anime I would like to attend

Standard

I came across this result via ANN about a survey conducted by BIGLOBE regarding fictional schools that people want to attend.  It caught my interest and decided to think up my own list.  Well, that’s assuming I was born Japanese AND my parents had lots of monies to be able to send me to most of my listed schools. (So it looks like my lists project will be continuing this year.)  =D

[Lists 2010] All-time Faves and Rankings: Mecha

Standard

I was waiting till I finished the original Gundam to publish this list.  And when I finished that, then I wanted to wait until I finished Zeta Gundam.  However, my patience with Zeta Gundam has run out, and so here I am now, doing the list.  I have also incorporated some of my unpublished reviews so some entries do not stop with just one paragraph.

[Lists 2010] All-time Faves and Rankings: Slice of Life

Standard

I finally got to follow-up on the first post.  Yey!  I am so ashamed it took me so long.  But it’s funny what noise pollution can do to one’s mind.  So in order to keep myself from losing my sanity, I finally finished my slice of life list.

[Lists 2010] All-time Faves and Rankings: Yuri and Shoujo Ai

Standard

This is what I have been referring to in my New Year post.  I will rank the shows I’ve watched for each genre/grouping.  I am not yet sure about the complete list of genres/groupings that I will tackle, because I doubt if there is enough material for most of them.  But the major ones are slice of life, comedy, shounen, and of course, mecha.  But today I will tackle yuri/shoujo-ai.  (Warning:  There might be some spoilers, but just a few.)
