Alright, so let’s get this show on the road… or tube… or whatever it is.
So, I was wrangled into this whole thing by curryninja, a.k.a. Victor. He seems to have designs on somehow becoming an internet superstar to fund his iPhone or G1. I personally, don’t like the iPhone, and think it’s a waste of money. But, then, I hate anything that’s popular. Victor is the one who set all this up, I guess he chose the Aria header because we both LOVE Aria (if you haven’t watched it, GO DO IT NOW!). I seriously doubt anything will come of this, but let’s see where the interwebs takes us.
I think maybe I’ll just review anime here and there, maybe some other anime/manga related things. Not that I am some sort of authority or anything, just an Engineering undergrad with too much time on his hands. I also may just post on random shit I think is interesting.
Right now what I think is interesting is this show Tweeny Witches. I became interested in it due to this AMV by Nostromo (it’s a pretty sick AMV); I saw a brief clip in it, and the art style intrigued me. I’ve only watched the first episode, but it already has me intrigued.
The art style is fantastic (it looks better in motion). I wish I could find some DVD rips, but it’s tougher than I thought. I’ll buy the DVDs if it I like it enough.
I really like the main character. Maybe I relate to her a bit because of how similar I was when I was young; believing in magic, and being somewhat of a rebel. In fact, I think most people thought like her when they were little. That feeling around 5th grade — when you still wish Magic (or Pokemon) was real with all your might — that maybe there is a chance it is real. Only, she actually gets to go to a world where magic is real! So, it’s kinda like watching what I dreamed of when I was a little kid.
Overall, the first episode has left a good impression on me, Studio 4°C does good work normally, and I think this will go well. I’ll probably talk about it more later. Check it out if you’re into fantasy stuff (true fantasy stuff is hard to come by these days). It’s a fairly short series, 40 eps, but each is only 9 mins. Note: I’m not into lolis or anything, and if you are, this series is short on fan service.
I’ve also been watching a lot of the new anime this season, but everyone watches those, and everyone reviews those, so I wont go on about the new stuff, too much…. unless it really has sparked my interest (WAITIN ON SEASON 2 OF NATSUME YUUJINCHOU!).
Hmm, I guess it ain’t bad for a first post. Maybe I’ll get better at this whole thing as time goes on. I’m still pretty rusty on my writing, considering I haven’t had to write anything since senior year of high school.
