Sukitte Ii na yo Episode 2 – I like big tits, and I cannot lie

I’m starting to take a vast interest in the characters of Sukitte. I’m starting to see personalities in characters that I wouldn’t expect in a shoujo romance. Take this guy for example, Kenji. He is the Andy W. Hol of Sukitte. But instead of having a diehard love for holes (no not those holes you perverts), his focus of attention is on them big titties. Anyone who watches enough anime will come to see that this is not an uncommon occurrence. But it is a bit of an uncommon occurrence when dealing with shoujo romances and the like. I would find this sort of situation to be a bit off putting if it hadn’t been handled properly the way that Sukitte has. Plus Kenji ends up with the apple of his eye within the first two episodes. Thank god they aren’t the main couple or this may end up like Bokura ga Ita.

Actually this would make him less like Andy W. Hol. Because being Andy is suffering.

Sukitte Ii na yo Episode 1- Shoujos are all the same

So I’m going to jump on the weekly anime blogging bandwagon. And what better way for me to start off than by blogging about a show in the genre that is practically my bread and butter: shoujo romances.

I guess this is the part of the post where I say something quirky or ironic to describe this episode of the show and give a general feel of how I felt about it, right? Is that how this works? Well, I must say there was a lack of sparkles/bubbles/flowers in this first episode than what I’m used to in other shoujos I’ve been exposed to. That was literally the only sparkle I saw the entire first episode. Get with the game Sukitte Ii na yo.

Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012 Preview

Yup. It’s that time of the year once again. This Friday I will be attending Anime Weekend Atlanta once again. There will be many new faces to meet this year and also some returning ones as well. And let’s not forget the endless number of panels to attend, anime screenings to watch, merchandise to buy, cosplayers to photograph, and everything else in between. After printing off 20 pages worth of stuff to do at this year’s AWA, I have formulated a very tight schedule that I will try oh so hard to attend to. So here is my run down of all that I will be doing at this year’s AWA.

A look at The Idolm@ster or ARE YOU READY?!? I’M LADY!!!!

I remember not giving a single fuck about this show when it first aired during Summer 2011. I saw it on the early Summer 2011 charts and thought to myself “The Idolm@ster? Someone is making an anime about that dumb Xbox 360 game? Fuck, I’m not watching that shit”. Well fast forward a year later and I decide to give the show a shot due to my fellow aniblogger friends pestering me , forcing me, recommend that I at least try it out. So I did. And I ended up regretting not watching this show to begin with. I haven’t had this much fun watching an anime since I watched Baccano! for the first time. So I’m going to run down all the things I loved about this show (which was practically everything).

Journey of Favorites: Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop

My first exposure to anything Cowboy Bebop came from my late night viewings on Adult Swim back in high school. I would watch an episode here and there because I initially became interested in the characters and the different scenarios they put themselves in. Plus I thought that Spike was a cool, suave mother fucker and that Faye was hot. But my interest in watching the show further diminished as other priorities in my life sank in.  It wasn’t until the summer of 2009 when I put some serious time into watching the series from start to finish. My first impressions were labeling Cowboy Bebop as one of the coolest anime shows I’ve ever watched. But as time changes, so do tastes.

Hyouka: Thus Far

Kyoto Animation is one of the few anime studios where if they make a new anime, I will pick it up no questions asked. KyoAni’s latest addition into the world of anime is Hyouka. Four high school students, Chitanda Eru, Fukube Satoshi, Ibara Mayaka, and Oreki Houtaru reestablish the Classic Literature Club. The basis of what they do is solve mysteries, big or small. Thus far, the show is wavering between somewhat good, and stupidly bad.

Journey of Favorites: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

I watched Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood for the first time in late 2010 after it had finished airing. My co-host Vensito (though at the time I was not a co-host/blogwriter yet)  had finished it a month or two before I had and would not stop raving at how it was one of the greatest shows he had ever watched. After listening to my overzealous co-host vomit words of pure elation for weeks on end, I gave in and picked up the show myself. And it is a decision that I’m glad I made. Because Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, in my eyes, became one of the greatest shows I have ever experienced.
