anime watching friday [May. 7th, 2011|07:12 am]

Saw the new episode of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi....Wow, that was boring. Hatori/Chiaki was so blah I'm amazed I got through the entire episode. I'm sad the next one is about them, too. I'd rather watch Yukina/Kisa since they'd be more interesting. It wasn't even that funny! So to cheer myself up I rewatched the first four episodes and the OVA. XD;

I also watched three episodes of Ao no Exorcist, which is so very shonen but (so far) in good ways. The main character is a dumb but endearing kid who learns he's the son of Satan. He's grown up at a Catholic church with his twin brother who has the most mesmerizing moles ever. Things happen, many of them bad, and he ends up at an elite school to learn to be an "exorcist." I like the kid a lot. He's the dumb but has heart type, but not soooo brash it's irritating. He has a sensitive side that balances him. Also, his comeback to his brother in episode 3 was the bestest ever to a tired tired tired line of reasoning I wanted to jab brother in the eye for. The art's pretty, too. The flashbacks to when they were little are SO ADORABLE.

YES! I was waiting for someone to post about yesterday's episode XD I'm actually quite happy to know next week won't be back to Ritsu's episode yet, because that way I don't have to buy DVD 3 ♥

It's one more Friday without watching Sekaiichi but it's okay. I'll hold out... somehow... XD

Ao no Exorcist sounds cute. I haven't watched any anime for a long time (until Sekaiichi) so I might give it a try~

LOL, so you're not even watching the episodes? I'm tempted to skip the next one, but I know I'll end up watching it.

Ao no Exorcist is very shonen, but also very cute. Hope you like it. XD

Haha XD Yup, I'm just... not interested in the couple. I don't know why. And it doesn't help either that I'm not interested in the voice actors too. XD Yup, I'm watching it for Kondo, so no Kondo means no watching for me XD\

I'm looking forward to it. I'm seeing nice feedbacks about Ao in the comments too, so looks like it'll be fun ♥

Haven't watched yet, but I see that the animators didn't improve on the novels like I was kind of hoping they would, haha. I just finished slogging through the second novel, which was every bit as bad as the first one. And ugh, I just do not like Chiaki AT ALL. Poor Hatori, I kind of like him, but he deserves better. :(

I'm not sure what happened, but all the manic joy the anime had up to this point was sucked out by this episode. I don't remember the novels very well so I didn't have a super negative view going in. I was hoping for short and sweet...But no. Instead it focused on tedious stuff (like Chiaki's utter denseness) and seemed to have cut stuff out that made the flow of the story make less sense.

Actually, after watching it, I think the character's facial expressions and voice actors' performances DID make the anime better than the novels. But then, I REALLY hate the novels, so...yeah.

Yeah, because that manic joy all comes from Nakamura. I don't hate Chiaki nearly as much in the little manga bits she writes for the novels.
