Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae 25 - 26:
Well that was fucked-up. As expected, but wow. And I thought Futakomori was bad.

====================

The weather has been so hot, I feel like running around naked. (Sadly, it would not alleviate the situation.) Just the other day, I was having an iced cup of juice. And one of those winged insects that hang around the lights took a nose-dive right into it.

====================

04/36 event. Oh shit. And Rock'n'Dolless has a new book out in May. And an anthology. And Cou has s new book out too. *looks around for sadly deflated wallet*

Argh, work . . .

Am also slightly cheesed off by the state in which one of my doujinshi arrived in. It wasn't entirely the seller's fault--she put in the cardboard backing and everything . . . on one side only so that when the envelop got bent the B5 doujinshi got dented because of the small volume that would not bend. T___T

=======================
Watching Natsume Yuujinchou now--very interesting indeed. Nyanko-sensei!

=======================
Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae: So far as never failed to deliver the darkness inside all humans.

=======================
Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo 10: They just rammed a golden butt plug (they can call it a "Golden Gentlemen Plug", sure) into Leopard. I have not been so amused in months. Oh and the plot thickens substantially.

I plan trips in my spare time. But since I can plan Tokyo trips with my eyes closed now, let's add the complication of arriving later than my travelling companions due to the tricky bit about needing to stop over in Hong Kong on the way back to invade kit's place.

I finally have travelling companions who are not my aunt or my mother again. (I took you to Italy, Mum . . . And three times to Japan, Aunt!) At a certain points (two years ago and four years ago), I was willing to go travelling with complete strangers. You make more friends that way. Or travel buddies. Which is why ML (friend of a friend who knows one of my best friends--small world) is coming along again. Ad-san was not invited because he went to Japan and Turkey last December (and still has not collected his Uniqlo sweater from me). Not sure Ed-san would be comfortable with a bunch of females though.

===================
Casshern SINS Finale:

I knew it would depressing, but I wasn't prepared enough for that sort of thing. That is truly my idea of a downer ending.

===================
Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae 21 and 22:

Some people might find it a little too dark, but fact is stranger than fiction. And reoccurring characters from past seasons show up to be cryptic.

===================
Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo 09:

Now officially in Gintama territory, with whole AU episodes, kicking down the Fourth Wall, making perverted jokes based on homonyms, parodying various shounen series, using fandom catchphrases and highlighting the fact that certain seiyuu from another series are in this show.

This is officially my favourite anime at the moment next to Jigoku Shoujo.

Casshern SINS 17:
Leda wanted children. Past tense. Wow, and I thought Dios had issues.

=============================
Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae 16:
Please don't ever stop being the dark side of anime and portraying modern life the way it is.

=============================
Obligatory my childhood my first fandom post:
There is CATS doujinshi. As in CATS the Musical doujinshi. From way back in 1998.

Featuring Munkustrap x Demeter, Munkustrap x Grizabella (wut?), Macavity x Bombalurina.

(Oh yes but no but yeah but no but yeah.)

Casshern SINS 15:

Lyuze ("the girlfriend"): Casshern . . . *heavy pause* . . . It might just be possible that Dune has more emo than you.

Friender (not!Lassie): At this rate, the universe is going to implode with all the emo before the plot gets moving.

===================

Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae 12: That's how anime should be deconstructed. Honestly, there are no words to describe how perfect this is. *fangirls like whoa* It does not lack an epic storyline--it has more than one evolving story woven within--it just doesn't let the backstory overshadow the weekly human drama and inevitable tragedy. Futakomori was darker than dark, not to mention depressing. Mitsuganae seems to be more about the darker side of human pettiness and trivality, often focusing on younger people like students. Which somehow makes everything even more tragic and terrible.

===================
Obligatory my childhood! moment:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doujinshi. BL doujinshi.

Isn't that also kind of like incest? Should I even try to get hold of one? Just for a look? (Oh no but yeah but no but yeah but no . . .)
