Well it’s about time for the Summer season to start, and it sort of already had with the 1st episode of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu season 2. There’s a few good shows this summer though if I have enough willpower to watch most of them is another matter.
Without further ado here’s what you’ve been waiting for:
My MUST watch list?
CANAAN – Type Moon anime??? Fuck yeah!
Umineko – I saw a few pictures for wallpapers of Umineko and proceeded to wiki it and suffice to say the story and characters look very interesting. Umineko, like Higurashi, is a popular doujin game.
Bakemonogatari – SHAFT?! looks Horror but really a Comedy?! Count me in.
Sora no Manimani – Slice of life and astronomy? Awwww yeahhh.
Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou – Sounds somewhat like Someday’s dreamer with magicans. Looks like a slice of life, we’ll see.
GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class – Slice of life and art? Where’s my Sketchbook Full Colors season 2?! lol.
Zan Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei – Oh Shit!!! More Zetsubo Sensei!! I was kinda sad when they said at the end of the OVAs that it would really be sayonara T_T. But now I’m happy again!
Spice and Wolf II – More economics lessons and Horo!
Hetalia Axis Powers 2 (saw a first episodes of season one, all I can say is lol at history.)
That’s about it really. Been recently playing FFXI again and having a lot of fun on the Fenrir server. Met a bunch of cool people and even found someone who is a fan of Legend of the Galatic Heroes aptly named Mittermeyer. A lot of stuff in draft on documents at the moment, stuck at work for today so waiting to get home before I give it some final touches.

Here’s my desk/workplace loaded with my figs and collectibles. Back home for the summer so using the small desk we’ve had for a long time. This is for a giveaway Danny is doing for people who take pictures of their desk/workplace and post it. Rules and information are in the link. Will update with an edit when I post my submission.

The genre I look out for when choosing shows is of course “slice of life”. I watch other things but I really look for the slice of life gem of the season which just happens to be Ristorante Paradiso by David Productions.
When I read the synopsis of the story I was immediately hooked and desperately wanted the 1st episode to come out. When it did I immediately grabbed it and watched it and man was I not let down. This is everything I love in an anime great characters, soothing music, and a slow paced atmosphere that just sucks you into it and makes you wish you were there. I think it’s because I am a fan of Aria (diehard yo) that I love these slow paced shows, they’re not for everyone mind you, but the people who like this genre truly understand the greatness of the “Slice of Life” genre. In the first episode everything that is written in the synopsis is laid out: Nicoletta (our heroine) goes to Rome to confront her mother and upon reaching Rome she enters the Restaurant Casetta Dell’Orso where the rest of the story will unfold.

A bit late but better late than never this Spring season has been full of good stuff. Usually I only watch about 50% of the shows in a season, sometimes less. What happens most of the time is I start watching something and I don’t necessarily drop it but I forgot to watch it after 4 episodes or so because I get so busy. Not this time around, this time around the animes are making me HAVE to watch the next episode or else the world would end.
Without further ado here’s the first part of my impressions:
Some of the cute girls of Hatsukoi.
Hatsukoi Limited is anime adaptation based on the manga of the same name. If you think the characters look really familiar to you it’s because it’s by the same creator of Ichigo 100% Kawashita Mizuki. Having read the manga I already knew how the story would play out but hearing the voices of the seiyuus on top of the super cute character designs was enough to K.O. me and make me want more. I liked the style of Kawashita Mizuki as she focus on “koi” which is passionate love and her works have made me feel the energy she is pouring into the characters and story. It is enough to make you wish you had a passionate youthful love life or wish. I will tell you this though: the first couple of episodes will deal with each girl (sorta) and their sepreate first loves however their stories will all merge together in the end.

Summer Time!! GAME ON!!
SUMMER IS HERE!!!
Well final exams week is finally over and I am happy as a motherfucker. I have a little bit over a month of free time as I will be taking Summber B classes that will start around June 29. During this time I hope to write all that I have been saving up this last month or so. So to start back on track I’m just gonna write a really simple post about what figs I have pre-ordered for the rest of the year.
So pre-ordering figs is a pretty easy task as all it requires is the click of a button once I figure which ones I want, when they release, and how much they will cost. So this is my current loot table for summer/fall:
Saber Lily Distant Avalon (I simply cannot wait for this to arrive!!!)

Black Rock Shooter
Black Rock Shooter, about 5 pounds! E-gads!
There’s a few more I’m eying at the moment but they aren’t in stock yet, I’ll make a new post for those. Recently after joining the Toyslogic forums I found out 2 awesome things.
1. Toyslogic is now using a VIP Membership Program. Basically when you spend money the purchase goes towards your VIP membership:
Bronze for $500 1% discount
Silver for $1000 3% discount
Gold for $3000 5% discount
Platinum for $6000 6% discount
Once you get Gold+ you start having awesome benefits. More info within the thread.
2. I found out about a nifty site called Figure Tsuki where much like MyAnimeList you can keep track of what figures you own, have on pre-order, or wish to have. Very helpful and also gives you a giant gallery of figs to browse through along with pricing and date of release. Try to guess what my user name is lol.
Well that’s it for now, we will not continue with our “Irregular” schedule. Next post will definitely be about the anime season I swear!
