why is summer so hot??? [Jul. 18th, 2015|07:20 pm]

Can I say that this delay of the last episode of Kekkai Sensen is utterly ridiculous? I’m not so invested in the series that I care a lot, but it’s so irritating because it's just one more episode! Unless the ending is spectacular, I can’t imagine people being super happy about this. :P

I got my orders of books. The sequels were good, the new books were meh. So Mad Cindarella by Yamamoto Kotesuko was the end??? I loved it (as I loved this entire series), but I’m so sad not to see any more of the crazy interactions of unrealistic rich people. I especially loved Takahiro barging into a meeting and declaring his awesomeness (with Yuuta commenting that he’s saying “Fucking” a lot…). I like how adorable Yuuta and Saku are, how balanced a couple they make and how even the sex makes sense (and that they actually had sex way before the end of the series! Being cock-blocked to the nth degree is so prevalent in BL and such a cop-out).

Also enjoyed Junjou 19, though the resolution was…swift? I don’t know, I thought it’d take longer? I liked it, but I was surprised. Also, anime! I am not a fan of Mizuki (these kinds of characters just need to be put down), but any Junjou anime is good in my book.

New installment of Yoshihara Rieko’s Nijuu Rasen series was good. For a while there she was dragging in all of her books and it felt like she was phoning it in, but the new volumes in this series and the Kusare-en no Housoku series I feel like she’s actually doing plot and stuff. I missed Naoto’s classmates (they don’t appear at all!) but I like a lot of the developments in this volume. I was wondering how they’d resolve the whole thing with the dad….I like it! I wish the damaged little sister also was resolved in the same way, but I’m hoping she doesn’t take up too much space in future volumes. I just don’t care about her.

I think the thing that made me happiest was the sequel to Takao Riichi’s oni story I mentioned before in this post. I was hoping for a sequel, and got a real sequel! I was so disappointed that the werewolf one by her I also loved didn’t get a true sequel but only a spin-off, so I was happy to see more of the characters I care about. It sounds like there might be more volumes, too! Love love love this one.

I’m really disappointed in this season’s anime line-up. That shimoneta one in particular. I am repulsed by any anime with characters who wear panties as a mask. Ugh ugh ugh. I might try the snow white one and/or ushio to tora since they look decent. I know Ushio to Tora is old-school shonen, and it sounds like it’s been done right. And I still have Baby Steps to love (even though I'm not looking forward to this upcoming match...).

I just finished listening to the drama CD for Oni no Ou series and it was absolutely adorable. The cast as great too! Ono Yuki x Saitou Soma as the main couple was mainly why I got it, and they exceeded expectations!

Sooo happy to know there's a sequel for the novel. Here's hoping they make one for the drama CD too!!!

I can imagine the drama CD being awesome. Especially if Yato's voice can do the cute vs. manly thing well, which, knowing Ono Yuki, he totally can. I'll have to check it out!

You forgot to add the tag for Yoshihara Reiko XD

I would not be surprised if the staff decides to release Kekkai Sensen's last episode as a movie instead of an OVA just to justify the length and production costs (if it's big). Seriously, it should be awesome else... /sigh

And also, Baby Steps's current match (anime) is one of the most awesome. ... in my case, that is... it's Ide, of course. My biases. Oops

Also, sorry if it sounds rude in your case but I wonder if you are going to put summaries for some volumes for Nijuu Rasen and Kusare-en no Housoku? ^^;;;
I am just wondering if something worse happened to Sugimoto, now that some people learn the real color of his eye

Thanks for letting me know I forgot a tag. They really are useful in finding old posts. XD

They could also release Kekkai Sensen's last episode as a deluxe OVA as well. Who knows? Hopefully they do it this year, though.

I'm currently not that fond of Ide, for some reason. Maybe the match will change my mind?

I might do summaries of Nijuu Rasen and Kusareen no Housoku. Like I said, for a while there I felt very uninspired by the novels so I didn't bother, but they've gotten a lot better now. In Kusareen there isn't much in the way of development at school, as far as I can recall. Some new characters were thrown in recently and a lot of the narrative weight has to do with them.

You're welcome. :) Just the effect of lurking on most of your entries the bl summaries. Oops. XD

Seriously. I just really hope they will release it this year else people may not enjoy the last episode much since they had to remember what had happened before. OTL

Hm, maybe you do not like too bubbly chara? XD Kidding aside, maybe because unlike Araya, Ide does not appear much except on his own match, that's why, his character development seems lacking? ^^;; Oh well.. XD

Hmm... I see. :) I am totally lost with what is happening now since there is no news if the drama cd versions of those novels will be released and my Japanese comprehension is crap (especially in reading). lol
