Summer Season Update

This summer is pretty arid. There’s a handful of shows that are REALLY good but that’s about it for the summer season. I can’t even make a Monthly Roundup because it’d be too small.

Humanity as Declined: Still weirdly amazing.

Kokoro Connect: It’s getting a bit to melodramatic as of late but it’s still really solid overall.

Natsuyuki Rendezvous: Still fairly dramatic and depressing but it’s lacking a bit on empathy.

Rinne no Lagrange S2: Still has dat amazing soundtrack and I like that it’s building up to a nice climax.

Sword Art Online: After its first two episodes, it got really terrible with side stories of girls falling in love with Kirito. Lately though, it’s been surprisingly good. The latest episode got me pumped up for the series again. Also, the animation continues to be really solid in action scenes.

Tari Tari: Nothing special, nothing new but I don’t really have anything bad to say. It does have amazing background art and a quirky style of comedy.

Advertising myself just a little bit

She could be the mascot for this blog, though she isn’t the traveler on revenge.

Well since I do care a little bit on how many people actually like my blog, I decided to advertise myself a bit. Do vote for me in the Aniblog Tourney if you have time and you like my blog. There’s not much to say about my blog besides “what you see is what you get” (hence all the words are written in the front page with no “continue reading”). I don’t pander to my readers nor will I ever do. My blog’s very masturbatory and I admit to it. This is like my ‘Dear Anime Diary’ or what have you. I guess that might be the very reason my blog isn’t as popular as it could be (or it could be my shitty writing, unchecked grammar, or one to two sentence post).

So vote for me tomorrow! ( or today if you’re reading this tomorrow) it starts at GMT 20:00

On another not so anime hand, I am participating in the Summer Komikon 2012. So for the Filipino readers out there, do remember to buy the first issue of ‘Chernila Comics’ which will be sold there. Also spread the word to other people about Komikon, the Komiks industry needs as much advertising as it can get. The website for Komikon is at the bottom of my right sidebar.

Back from my monthly hibernation

Well there’s a lot of reason’s why I always have hiatuses:

1) Real life constraints. Its hard to keep up with blogging every now and then. Even blogging Nisemonogatari and Ano Natsu de Matteru came to a close.

2) Damn you wordpress! Every time I try to create a post, wordpress shits on me. Well not today I guess!


3) Because I’ve been busy watching old anime because I’m a hipster. My recommended list is sort of inaccurate as of late so expect a big change soon.

Oh yeah my monthly roundups. . . I’ll get to that as soon as I catch up on things. For now my favorites is really more of the same. Nisemonogatari being bold, Chihayafuru becoming more awesome as it comes to a close, and Ano Natsu finally breaking its shell of characters being insufferably nice to each and get a full dose of that love triangles we’ve wanted to see for a long time.

Guilty Crown’s fucking broken beyond repair so I dropped it, Nymphogear’s also dropped, haven’t catch up with Mouretsu Prates and Mirai Nikii (though those series are the types to be marathoned) and i’m still patiently watching the 1980’s classic Touch (from Mitsuru Adachi, the author of Cross Game (its fucking 100 episodes!)) so things will still feel relatively slow around here.

Oh yeah after Touch I’m planning to watch Monster and Maison Ikkoku (a relatively old series done by the author who did both Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha.)
