For those of you who don't know (and who still buy anime DVDs) Summer Wars came out today on DVD and BLU-RAY.

Finished Durarara. It was enjoyable. Is there any decent fan translations of the light novels? Might give them a read once I get a kindle.

If you don't find that enjoyable, you may as well stop. That's what the show is, Moe Seinfeld.

Moe Seinfeld.
Kinda good way to put it now that I think about it. But the 'nothingness' of it is kinda why I like it, just give it a few eps and if you like it, you like it; if you don't, you don't.

Yeah, that's why I really enjoyed it too. It's just a nice, light, fun show.

I couldn't get into lucky star at all. I do love a particular doujin (not that kind) about kagami and konata after they leave school though.

That's why I loved it as well. It's the slice of life show of all slice of life shows. And it manages to make the most mundane things hilarious and entertaining.

It also made me want one of these really fucking bad:



Like...you have no idea how much I want one of these. Partially to test the "which side is better" question.

Speaking of Lucky Star...This is a thing that will be happening (NSFW site). What the fuck. XD I'm not sure what to think about this at all.

Other than it will be amaaaaaazing.

Kinda curious to see how that's going to work. I've seen the Bleach musical, but that at least followed the story line. Since nothing really happens, I'm not sure what they could even sing about.

All I know is that they better do the cheer dance:

Lucky ☆ Star - OP Full Dance (らき☆すた) Small | Large


If they don't, all will be lost.

Also, as said in the Bar, I've been watching Natsume Yuujinchou and loving it. I love creepy Japanese folklore stories, especially when they involve creepy monsters existing just out of sight in normal, everyday society. It reminds me of xxxHolic, but a bit less ridiculous. XD

Waiting for an adorable onryo girl to show up. There better be one.

Watched the first episode of The Sacred Blacksmith and its a thing indeed. Is Funamation running out of ideas or something? In the first episode they make a transmutation circle in order to make a sword. Other then that this show isn't bad, it would do well on adult swim (if not for the nudity).

I dropped it to wait for the BD releases for the sexy tits. Then I forgot.

I have NO idea why Funi picked it up.
