*CLAWS FACE IN EXCITEMENT*
Ok I'm sorry, but this anime suits my tastes perfectly~ I especially love the scene where Hannes was arguing that they shouldn't leave the people outside of the gate to die (which is what you would expect of a heroic character), but once that gigantic Titan started charging, then the reactions of the characters (as well as that of the audience, presumably) quickly changed to "SHIT close that gate NOW!"
And I really wish people would stop bitching about Yuki Kaji, especially since the last scene of the 2nd episode has made it abundantly clear that he will be changing how he voices Eren from here on out.
Shingeki no GUTS. I love it already. THIS is the show that will save anime. :P
Definitely enjoying all of the other anime I've recently picked up as well! I think this season is going to be quite good. :)
EDIT: Here's the very pretty ED song:
I just found this and I can't contain myself!
So yearsss ago when the first live-action NANA movie was released in Japan, Hyde of L'Arc~en~ciel composed a song for it called GLAMOROUS SKY. And last week, JYJ had a series of concerts in Tokyo for the first time in three years and one of Jaejoong's solo songs was GLAMOROUS SKY! Which is only sweetened by the fact that Hyde himself (and Gackt and a million other Japanese celebrities) were in attendance! All my Asian music fandoms are literally converging into one! *dies*
I've always liked this song, but I just LOVE Jaejoong's cover! And it's such a pleasant surprise, especially considering that Jaejoong is a Korean singer with an R&B background and this is a J-Rock song. And it's also AMAZING to finally hear JYJ perform in Japanese again for the first time in literally years.
Also, I just realized that I've been a fan of DBSK/JYJ for six years now. Like, WHAT. Where did all that time go?? I don't talk about them nearly as often, but I still have a lot of feels for DBSK ok. ;_;
Leftover from last season
Obligatory Fujoshi Series
Uta no Prince-sama Season 2 (I still can't believe this show is real)
We'll see whether I continue watching this
Aku no Hana (I don't what this show is about nor where it's headed)
Shingeki no Kyojin
Suisei no Gargantia
Regarding the last two, I just watched the first ep of Shingeki no Kyojin and I LOVED it! I really hope all following episodes are at least as good as that first one was. Would recommend to fellow fans of seinen fantasy/sci-fi. Also, it might be the artwork or the designs of the Titans, but something about this series really reminds me of Gantz (minus all the pornography).
And Suisei no Gargantia hasn't premiered yet. I'm looking forward to it, even though I get the feeling that Urobutcher pulled this script from out of his ass. Also, Gargantia is supposed to be a "light-hearted slice-of-life show" so... we'll see how that goes.
EDIT: btw here's a subtitled promo of Shingeki no Kyoujin. I'm so excited!
And I enjoyed it more than I thought I would! I actually found it scary at parts, certainly more so than the average horror movie. Though the only horror movies I've seen in theatres recently were Mama, Sinister, and a yet-to-be-released movie with the working title The Conjuring, and out of all those, Evil Dead is definitely the most entertaining. Though don't watch it if you can't stomach gore because MAN. I feel like my desensitization to violence definitely jumped up a notch after watching this movie.
And on that note, RIP to Roger Ebert. This "celebrity death" affects me more than most others because, as silly as this probably sounds, I imagine that one of his fleeting thoughts before dying was knowing that he would not be able to see upcoming movies that he was looking forward to. And that's actually something I've thought about before. I don't know, as a fellow movie enthusiast I guess I just find that way too relatable. :(
"At any rate, comparing oneself to others is a fruitless exercise. You will always end up comparing what the public thinks of the other with what you know of yourself."
Currently reading The Twelve Kingdoms: The Shore in Twilight. Will probably make a compilation of quotes once I'm done reading Book One, since the Twelve Kingdoms books are filled with wonderful little aphorisms.
I also recommend the anime, if anyone out there has yet to watch it. :D :D
