Remember that we talked about the upcoming live action movie of Manga series Ranma 1/2? Now it has aired its first TV commercial in Japan. Featuring a 30-second preview, you can see all the main characters including Yui Aragaki and lots of others who I assume you have already familiar with if you are Japanese drama fans. According to ANN, the show will be aired during NTV’s 7:00 p.m. Friday Super Prime time-slot on December 9.
Well, first, don’t be scared by the title since there won’t be anything dramatic and won’t affect our usual business, blogging and having fun. And no, I probably won’t announce a close of business and probably never. The service changes mainly affected by the recent events, name it, the closing down of Google Reader and it occurred to me, and probably the wake-up call to lots of others, it is time to change something that will more or less become the next Google Reader before it’s too late.
Well, at first I don’t think too much of this series until I somehow got the first episode later. It’s worth watching and it’s an encouraging story. Skip Beat! is a Japanese shoujo manga by Yoshiki Nakamura. I also know a similar manga of becoming a singer by Arina Tanemura: Full Moon wo Sagashite.
Still remember what I’ve said about this Anime series in my recent post January 2009 New Anime Guide? Yeah, I said nothing, simply because I don’t pay much attention to the series. But whatever, after I watching one episode I start to love it. You may ask why I have to watch something I don’t “like”? It’s because of Sawyer(akibarika) who post a comment followed the post that made me feel getting interested in.
The earliest memory of Yuki Cross (黒主 優姫) was a snowy night in winter that she was saved by Kaname Kuran (玖蘭 枢), a pure-blood vampire when she was under attacked by another vampire. 10 years later, Yuki becomes a high school student and lives as an adopted daughter of the Headmaster of Cross Academy, Kaien Cross (黒主 灰閻). In order to realize Kaien’s dream which vampires are able to coexist peacefully with humans, Yuki works with Zero Kiryu (錐生 零), a childhood companion whose parents were killed by a pure-blood vampire, as school guardians.
Tons of Anime this month. Confused and don’t know which to watch? We’ve got a watching guide but it was only an brief introduction and nothing more. Here I’d like to share some really nice Animes of high quality both in story and character design with you. Some of them are shown in the previous post and some of them don’t. This is just a list of Anime that I enjoy, if you have more, share them! Here we go.
Anime fans always love April mainly because the Anime aired in April are generally the best of the year. We have tons of great examples, say Code Geass, Valkyria Chronicles, Saki, Eden of the East, K-ON!, Fullmetal Alchemist and so forth. Check out our old post for what Anime had been aired on April last year (April 2009 New Anime Guide, Recommended Anime of April 2009). April is great not only because you can fool anybody you want, but also you can stay calm and enjoy the nice Anime. And for the season this year, I really don’t have much time since most of the Anime are great and worth watching. I hope I have twice the hours per day or I don’t need to sleep any more. Of course, stay awake is painful and we do need to take a rest from these excellent shows below.
All the series have already aired their first episode and it’s probably the time to make some recommendations. There are over 40 TV series in this season and it will sure take you a long time to finish watching all of them if you wish to. And despite the quantity, most of the series in the season are quite good in quality and it did take me a while to figure out which to follow.
It has been a month since the airing of the new Anime this Spring, wonder how you like the series so far. At first glance, there are lots of nice series that you may wish to follow. Second thought, there are also many series you may just want to pass and it’s pure personal preference. Thus in this post, I will go though some of the most recommended and leaving the rest of them to be chosen by our readers.
It is time to talk about the new series this Spring, wonder how you like it so far. It is actually a season full of surprises, and I have to say that I like most of them. Apart from several well known sereis like Oreimo and Railgun, there are some really good light novel adaptations like RDG: Red Data Girl by P.A. Works and Hataraku Maousama!. Also we have some surprises from few less known original series which turns out to be one of the best of the season, the Kakumeiki Valvrave. If you haven’t started, check out our new Anime guide for the list of new TV Anime airing this Spring.
