An Interesting Title

April 18th, 2010
Information: I am about 10 episodes behind on all the Winter 2010 animes I was following, and I still haven’t finished the Fall 2009 animes I was following. My first impressions on the new Spring 2010 animes will come in a later post (even though it’s about already the 2nd week of Spring 2010).

Anime sucks.

HEY YU!

Shakugan no Shana S Episode 02 — One of the best things about watching an anime… when you come back to it again, it feels so fresh, so nostalgic, and so pleasant.

Is what I would like to say… but this episode was 99.975% pointless. A waste of half an hour.

Shakugan no Shanatan Dos — ehh not funny

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Special – Nekogoroshi-hen — Lol.

Durarara!! Episode 12 — It turns out this anime was actually 24 episodes, so this isn’t the climax. Wahahaha.

Fairy Tail Episode 24 — eh this is getting too typical and cliche. Like, nothing’s happening happening.

BakaTest Episode 11 — OMG I finally have time to catch up on BakaTest, the awesomest anime this season.

The Sacred Blacksmith Episode 11 — playing the catch-up game. Hmmm… horrible animation, horrible voice actiong, horrible plot, horrible dialogue, horrible everything x____x

The Sacred Blacksmith Episode 12 FINAL — so like why am I still watching this.

Her sword is sexy.

Is what I would say, but it sounds quite weird out of context.

Seiken no Blacksmith / The Sacred Blacksmith FINAL REVIEW

I’m back to simple final reviews. The balance of points is probably highly inaccurate, but too bad. Also, my ratings seem to have gotten harsher or something… I didn’t expect a D.

Characters 0/2 | Plot 0/2 | Setting 1/2 | Music 1/2 | Art 1/2

3/10 D

Durarara!! Episode 13 — Oh my god epic new intro song.

Anri’s voice is so touching. If only she didn’t wear glasses, then I’d like her. Anyways… this episode: Introducing, the Traffic Police Force! And… Shinra’s dad is crazy. OMG Russian!

That ending… was… wow. And the ending song :3 DRRR is still running strong~

Ookamikakushi Episode 08 — I heard this anime really sucked.

Fairy Tail Episode 25 — New OP song? really?

Elfman is cool. Touching moment is not touching. In Soviet Russia, moment touching YOU!! No wait, that’s not right…

Flying kitty crying is cute. Aye! Juvia is stupid, and her whole scene-thing is stupid, and everything is stupid. Gray is awesome, though. I think I like the new ED. Next episode looks like fun things will happen.

Omamori Himari Episode 12 FINAL

Why did I watch this anime all the way through. I want the 6 hours I wasted on this back.

Omamori Himari FINAL REVIEW

The final episode was so horrible…

Characters 1.5/2 | Plot 0/2 | Setting 0.5/2 | Music 2/2 | Art 1.5/2

5.5/10 B+

ひぐらしのく頃に礼 / Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei 第五話 / Episode 05

昼壊し編 (Hirukowashi-hen)

...

...

This episode was so genius, I couldn’t help but take fifteen screenshots.

Rika/Nakahara Mai's voice is too kawaii to live through hearing.

This post has a lot of pictures, so I was courteous enough to add a cut. ^^

living without sin is a sin in itself

November 2nd, 2009

ひぐらしのく頃に礼 / Higurashi no Naku Koro ni REI

I’ve always admired how beautiful Higurashi was and is. Amidst the killing and bloodlust, the inner beauty of these themes stir up a teary feeling within your chest.

“Do you really all think so?

All of you would truly reject the sinless, beautiful world I was so torn over?”

“Yeah. I think this world is far more precious.”

“Why do you say that?”

“Because we fought to obtain our future in this world!”

Perhaps living without sin is a sin in and of itself…

I don’t think that’s a sin.

“A flower raised in a greenhouse is still beautiful, even though it knows no adversity.

But a flower growing in the field that has braved wind, rain, cold, and heat possesses something more than just beauty.”

But, if you had to choose between growing up in a field or a greenhouse…

“Oh, now I understand! You’ve been making a mistake from the start, Rika-chan.

There’s no point in comparing an impossible world to this one in the first place.”

“You’re trying to think about it from the viewpoint of someone above the flower — someone greater than a human.

You’d have to be a god capable of travelling between the two worlds in order to debate which one was happier.

But a human like Rika-chan, while she may live in both worlds, cannot travel between them.

The Rika-chan in the field and the Rika-chan in the greenhouse both exist. And I think both of them are living proudly in their own worlds.”

It’d be wrong if the one in the field says that it’d rather have born in the greenhouse.

We’re all flowers. We do our best to grow regardless of where we take root, and we all try to to produce the best flower we can.

It wasn’t a dream. However, now that I’ve made my choice, this world is reality and the other world has become a dream.

Only a superhuman existence, capable of seeing the contents of each box, can worry about which hand will bring a better future.

The first 15 minutes was basically Rika talking to a marble. >_<

I think Rika and Hanyuu did say some meaningful things, but it wasn’t particularly interesting.

However, the conversation between Rika and her friends after she “returns” is what truly compelled me to blog.

The most “KYUUUU~!” thing in Higurashi Rei 04 was her mention of Bernkastel (yay Umineko!!), speaking of which I’m on the edge of my seat for the next episode of. *thumbsup, Studio DEEN.*

State of the Union

I’m coughing so bad. And, it’s so dry. Throat sore. Mouf flaking… aghh

Currently anti-oxidizing myself with bottled ice green tea.

I’m actually adding a cut. Dunno why.
