Year End Hiatus

I've been busy with stuff. I shall also be going out of town and be gone for a week.
And these past few weeks had been very unlucky for me o_O
Well, if things go according to plan, I'm planning some BIG changes on this site early next month/year. So... I suppose you'll just have to watch out for it ;D
Happy Holidays~

Fan bias is so powerful. I was so overjoyed while watching that episode especially on times when he's featured on screen. Teeheeheehee.

Alrighty, now for my weekly dose of anime xD I made my style a little different this time, and they're no longer in alphabetical order.

Winter 2012 Anime Series First Impressions

WINTER IS COMING!!!!!!! (I suddenly missed A Game of Thrones....)
Wow... the previous season didn't seem that long ago but it looks like we'll be seeing another batch of new shows coming very soon xD
Last time, I expected my top favorite to be Un-Go, but Fate/Zero blew me away. It was so fantastic, I love it *_*
For this season, my chosen one... should've been:
IT'S AMAZING!!!!!! ONE OF THE FANTASY SERIES WITH ALICE IN WONDERLAND REFERENCES DONE RIGHT AND VERY CREATIVELY *_*
But... it doesn't seem to be a series? But I'm happy that it's gonna be out really soon though xD

Now about the others.... here goes!

[ Anime Blurbs ] Autumn 2011 Anime - Part 7

I managed to marathon Ikoku Meiro Croisee last week:
RATING: B (NICE!) FAVORITISM: 4 Hearts (ADORATION)
It was beautiful *_* The anime was way better than the manga. It's sad that we didn't get to see The Grand Magasin in it (perhaps they lacked people to do background animation for it? They can't degrade the quality... setting illustrations in the series had baan magnificent *_*), but I liked all those anime fillers xD

Alrighty, now for my weekly dose of anime xD

[ Manga Discovery + Anime Promotion] Inu x Boku S.S.

Inu x Boku Secret Service
Shirakiin Ririchiyo, a daughter of a high-class family, wants to try living independently, and be able to get along better with others. She moves into an apartment complex, called the Ayakashi Kan. Residents of that place are accompanied by a bodyguard from the Secret Service.

She didn't ask for one. She didn't see the need to.

But there was one SS agent who DESPERATELY wants to be her servant. He says that if she doesn't need him, he might as well die.

How will Riricho be able to deal with such a... DOG?

Quick Altima Ace Volume 1 - Fangurling

A new comic magazine published by Kadokawa Shoten made its debut last month. It's called Altima Ace.
I managed to get my hands on the first volume, which comes with a Deadman Wonderland bag (it also had a drama CD but I forgot to take a photo of it ^^;):
As expected, it was awesome xD

I think Altima Ace is somewhat like Young Ace; both are shounen magazines, main genres include action, comedy, and fantasy, and they're also quite mature. So it's like a border between shounen and seinen.

Supposedly, for posts like this I put something anime related as the top/into image but... I'm more updated to manga ^^; So perhaps I'll post something manga-related instead.
Well, I've been catching up on Enigma:

Kiri's Sasuke look and attitude is bothering me. I hope he stops going tsun tsun already T_T
I'm having difficulty in choosing between Matsurigi and Kurisu as my favorite character in this series.... I wish there'll be more chapters centered on them... I wish to know them better.

Alright, now to the weekly anime post. Only six titles for this batch because I failed to watch one of them (referring to Ben-To). I'll try to catch up on that next week... and maybe I'll be dropping one of them (referring to Guilty Crown). The less series to follow, the more I can keep up. Hehe.
