An avid connoisseur of Anime and Manga who gets into trouble due to an inability to stop inputting and outputting and decided to unload the random information collected in her brain onto the people of the blogosphere.

Find me on

You know, there’s always that “hopeless protagonist” trope for these kinds of shows, but I feel like Kaneki is possibly the one of those archetypes that I feel rather bad for.  He’s a bit more hopeless than most start out.  Kind of gives me a very Ganta Igarashi (Deadman Wonderland) feel when I watch him cope with his new situation.

This is, quite possibly, one of the more disturbing anime I have watched in a while.  Not only do we have the feasting on humans, but there’s also cannibalism.  What fun!  And all of it is showcased in great, bloody detail.  Honestly, if this was live action I’d be worried about how much of their budget was spent on red dye.  Still, the feasting is not the most disturbing thing about it.
The first couple episodes were more intriguing than disturbing, but what really creeps me out is this guy right here—Shu Tsukiyama.  Even among people considered “freaks” he’s a freak.  Creepy.  Add to that the most Light Yagami-esque voicing that Mamoru Miyano has done in a while, and you have my spine crawling back to Free! or Book of Circus where Mamo plays a character who’s head I don’t actually want to simultaneously bash in and run screaming from.
Still, this show has me properly intrigued.  More than I thought it would at least, and as the themes of what it means to live and what it means to posses humanity begin to unravel slowly and subtly, I’m intrigued more and more.  Definitely glad I picked this one up as one I’m going to try and keep up with.

Goal for the weekend. Actually watch anime for a change, maybe even catch up and maybe even post on this blog!

So far, I’m really enjoying this season of Free!.  KyoAni has really spared no expense at notifying the audience that this season is going to be fairly similar to the first season in plot and theme.  Instead, the part of Rin Matsuoka will be played by Sosuke Yamazaki with his own form of trauma, ideas about Haruka, and reasons for wanting to be part of the “team.” 
Still, I’m not entirely certain how I feel about Sosuke yet as a character.  I’m assuming that I’ll grow to feel about him like I felt about Rin towards the end of the first season, but so far it’s too early to tell for me. 
Even so, the spirit of the first season is very much present in this season, and that’s something I’m thoroughly enjoying.

Is it wrong to take amusement and enjoyment in the fact that last season there were comments about The Mangaka and His Assistants by women to the tune of “This show is so perverted, yet I can’t help but get a kick out of it!” while this season it’s men commenting on Love Stage with a “I can’t believe I found a yaoi this freaking hilarious and fun!”

Because I am so amused by this it’s not even funny.  And proud, actually.  Go anime community go for your not caring about gender-based-binaries and just watching entertaining anime.
