|no internet sucks
||[Sep. 20th, 2013|06:03 pm]
I've been living elsewhere for the last two months, and this month the place I'm staying at doesn't have an internet connection. Holy crap it sucks. I do have a my phone, but it doesn't make up for not being able to connect with my computer and iPad (esp since my carrier hasn't upgraded to LTE here yet). GAH. It's made keeping up with everything so much harder, but especially anime and LJ. *sighs* In any case, my anime thoughts...
I caught up with Free! this week and I gotta say...so pretty! I was surprised to find myself sorta shipping Makoto/Haruka since the Rin/Haruka thing seemed inevitable in the beginning, but I took a quick look at FF.net and saw that others saw the same thing. I look forward to the next race! The best thing about anime with competitions is just how exciting they can make whatever competition being depicted.
I am a couple of weeks behind Gin no Sagi but have grown to like it quite a bit. I realized that Hachiken's voice grates on me, which makes it hard for me to like him (he sounds waaay more whiny because of that voice), but he really tries hard. I can appreciate that. Mikage is still such a bland character. I don't dislike her, but she doesn't have anything interesting or quirky about her. Her family is 1000 times more interesting, frankly. The glimpse into animal husbandry is fascinating, as well. I am such a city slicker, I totally understood Hachiken's freak outs (even as I hated his voice). :P
Still watching Hakkenden. I'm so glad Shinobu's arc is over because it completely bored me. They really took away his quirks and made him a tiresome victim. I assume it's in the "let's make this shit up" stage since it's past the manga now, so it'll be interesting to see where they take it. I hope the end is not lame.
Majestic Prince has lost me a bit. I am surprised at where they are taking it, I'm hoping to get sucked back in for the finale.
I keep meaning to write about the BL novels I've been reading lately, but not having internet connection makes me so much less likely to crack open my laptop.
