水曜日 Wednesdays' Wanderings

美しく最後を饰りつける暇があるなら、最後まで美しく生きようじゃねぇか ?

Musing of the week… for the year?

9 Comments

So, as schoolwork slowly sets in, I’ll have to shaft bloging to weekly post instead of daily post, like in the initial month of which I set up my blog. Then again, this blog is no more than like 2 months old anyway. And it was set up during the long school holidays, where I have plenty of time, anyway. So yeah. All right, just some random thoughts about the current anime-related stuffs.

And damn, I have lesser time to watch anime as well. But fortunately or unfortunately depending on which point of view I take, there isn’t much series that has caught my attention (I’ll talk about that in the later part of this post). Meanwhile, I will patiently wait for the release of the results of the 2008’s Fav Anime Survey@A-Source.com

General Outlook for the Year
“She really disappeared!”
Haruhi is still a lie, so I’ll continue to seek solace in the novels and the 4koma, Haruhi-chan. Yup, I’ll just ignore all the news (rumours, official press statement, conspiracy theories about an elaborate troll for the best pun ever or whatnot and the likes of it) and simply be pleasantly surprised when it does eventually comes out. If ignorance isn’t bliss, apathy will be closer to being bliss — though part of me digress to that idea, but let’s not got there. On a related note, I finally got round to watching the short anime adaptation of Haruhi-chan and Nyoro-n-chan. Pretty interesting and I got quite a few chuckles out of it. The art wasn’t impressive, but I guess that’s beside the point.

Of the new FMA series, I’m kind of neutral towards it. After all, for the initial part of both manga and the old series, the story’s the same, so essentially, for the early part of the new series, it’s pretty much a remake. As for the later half: now that’s where it’s going to be interesting. Considering the fact that the manga is still on-going, I’m somewhat worried about how the new series is going to end. Or maybe, the manga is really going to be ending soon, but oh well, we’ll see. But at the very least, I can be assured that it’ll be worth the watch, even if it does not turn out to be memorable. The remaining Kara no Kyoukai movies are still a rather long way from being released, so no point to really wait for it. Speaking of movies, I’m very curious about the Dragon Ball Live action movie. For good or for bad, I’m just too tempted to watch it (part of the blame goes to /a/ ).

  1. ne, there is a possibility that the confirmation of the re-run made by Kadokawa was just another of their trolls. they did not confirm any re-run in there official announcement in Newtype after all — just “Haruhi TV” cans till mean another series. But KyoAni is working on K-ON! so this lessens the probability.😄

    About FMA, is it true that the first series departed from the story in the manga in Scar’s arc? I don’t read the manga.

  2. Yup, there is no Dante arc in the manga. Dante is an anime-only character; she’s not the Boss in the manga. Also, the definition on the creation of Homonculus is somewhat different in the manga.

  3. sou… thanks. ^^ I’ll just watch that part in the new series. I basically don’t have much time to devote to watching animu this spring. ;_;

  4. whee…FMA season 2 looks to be pretty boring…most likely…unless they continue from the scar arc……

    very unlikely indeed.

    BTW,really lovin school life.NOT

  5. whoa…damn cool display pic…

    kev’s comment: lol

  6. I’m trying my best to forget the novel, just to de-spoil myself (at least partially) in preparation for the second season. Which may never come.

    But I’ll cling to any shred of hope because Haruhi’s all I’ve got right now. No plans of picking up FMA – the first anime run turned me off after several episodes, so much so that I quickly gave up on it and skipped to the last episode just to see how it ended. The manga art had the same effect.

  7. 2nd season should be a no show again…the continuous delays are getting to be a real trademark of theirs…XD

  8. nyoro-n~

    (T-T)

    Though frankly, I’m really worried for the studio. This season is gonna be hard to pull off, I mean heck, the novel was rather confusing… …

  9. you are being pessimistic…i am sure they have a perfectly good reason fr delaying haruhi season 2 fr so damn long…NOTHING can go wrong with Haruhi season 2…Haruhi herself will condemn half-assed works that portray her negatively…so it should be fine.Hopefully
