Nathan here, we're still alive, so going to say some stuff to keep us active. Hope you guys are Having a great Summer. I know mine is decently ok. I haven't gone to any anime convention yet since I bought that sweet monitor, but I promise I'll go to the next one. BUT...if you're not having a good Summer, here's some anime that I thought you'd might like to check out that I've been hearing about, watching, problem hearing about AND watching (yeah I can multi-task ;) ) I'll probably give a mini-review about some and a 1st-look about some just to give you a little feel for it, even if I might've said something about it already.
Amagami SS - I've heard some good things about this anime and I'm going to watch this myself I'll know is that like most popular anime, it's based on a visual novel. So expect some comedy.
Angel Beats! - I haven't started it myself yet but knowing that Visual Arts/Key made it (a Visual Novel company) helped in the making of the anime means that the anime is going to be good. And from all of the comments of this anime, I heard it is good.
Bakemonogatari - Although this anime has been out for sometime, the last episode has FINALLY been released, so if you want to watch the entire show to get a more clearer picture from head to toe, I'd suggest that.
Gintama - ALWAYS, ALWAYS a good show to watch. Sorry you Naruto and Bleach fans, but Ginatama-sensei out ranks you.
Highschool of the Dead - I've been hearing it was either so-so or it was great. Overall if you're a horny bastard, and like Tenjou Tenge hairstyles, then the show is for you. I lol at the fact that they enter the 1st epi with showing cleavage then immediately say "baka" right after. Great subliminal messaging there.
K-ON!! - Overall, K-ON! Season 2, if you've seen it before, you won't be upset, Yui and Ritsu are still be fave comedy-wise. I think I liked Mio cuz she had long straight black hair. Azusa, just cuz of the pigtails. Overall lots of nice music, makes you wanna learn some instrument at times, (coincidentally I did because of this anime, lol.)
Mahou Sensei Negima! Mou Hitotsu no Sekai - Some of Negima's final OVAs, (but not the final final.) This series is going reeeally slow, so I'd consider to just grab the current ones and keep this series on hold for now, but the animtion (of course it's standard Negima quality animation,) but they added a LOT of fighting which was a big turn-around.) So yeah check it out.
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi - If you like kitty-shaped boxing gloves...then I'd probably go "wtf?!" anyways, Ookami-san, at first, looks a fuckin-lot like a Toradora-clone (sounds like a talking about a game atm...) The main character is Ookami-san a flat-chested hot chick who looks a lot like an older Aisaka Taiga. (there's a narrator in Ookami-san anime who's VA is the same VA who played Shirai Kuroko from Toaru Kagaku no Railgun. And she insults Ookami a LOT about her flat chest which is lulz.) Ookami-san's VA is lukily, Itou Shizuka voiced a ton of people I liked. There's a Red-head named Akai Ringo, the loli "Minori" of the group practically the smartest out of the 3. And of course the Ryuuji of the group, Minou Ryouji who is the total opposite of Ryuuji. There are also a few supporting casts members who's personality traits are reelay like Yuki, Mikuru, and Koizumi from Haruhi.
Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ - AKA Sekirei 2, If you've watched the 1st season then watch this one, though this series is going pretty slowly, so I'd hold on this one for now.
Shiki - The newest (or at least MY newest) Higurashi mindfuckin' comedy. It stars, it at least it starred a a tsundere pink haired girl named Megumi who had dreams of living in this one castle near the town she was staying in and wanting to live in it with this one guy she fell for. At the moment it's reeeallly hard to find subbers for this anime so it might be awhile to actually get the ball rolling smoothly for this anime, but I can't wait... >.<;
Tales of Symphonia - Tethe'alla-hen - Basically it's the Tethe'alla continuation of the Tales of Symphonia OVAs when the heroes warp and trael from Sylvarant to Tethe'alla to seek help. If you're a Tale's fan it's a definite watch, if you don't know hack-shit about Tale's series, then I'd suggest you expect it to be a gamer's anime.
There's curently a LOT of anime going around this season, so much that I had to drop some that I couldn't keep up with. So be sure to watch your faves and if you have a small hard drive, clean it out as best as you can.
