菫~陽と共に – Sumire~You to Tomoni
RED GARDEN OST Track 28

It has been a while since I last heard this song by Kokia. Nonetheless, Sumire~You to Tomoni still impact me the same way as when I first listened to it. It is also my favourite insert song from the “Red Garden” Original Soundtrack.

This legend is indeed on his mark


I wasn’t sure if the video link would work but it did and it’s all good until it last. To be honest, I’ve never seen this music video animation created for Chage & Aska’s song ‘On Your Mark’ by Miyazaki sensei before. I thought it quite genius that he managed to squeeze a complete short story into a slightly over 5 mins long music video. Fantastic really. Much like those animation shorts he created for Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. He’s definitely on his mark with this one, yeah!

Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus – 01


Yay! KUROSHITSUJI is back on the telly again!

Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus [Ohys-Raws] - 01.mp4_snapshot_00.07_[2014.07.12_21.06-tile私はあくまで執事ですから.  Oh how I miss hearing this phrase. No one,  I mean no one can voice Sebastian the way Daisuke Ono does. It’s good to have Kuroshitsuji back on the small screen in the way I like it best, back to its roots. This time round the anime is animating one of the better arcs from the manga known as the “circus arc”.  To get things going, the introductory stand alone episode eases the viewers, old and new alike back into the wonderfully weird and mysterious world of Kuroshitsuji where nothing is ever as it seems.

[Snippets] GFantasy Issue 07-14


With Summer Anime airings just round the corner, Kuroshitsuji once again held the cover spotlight in the July issue of GFantasy. Yana Toboso’s manga is one of Square Enix’s cash cows. It has been constantly in the spotlight with stage plays, a movie adaptation and a deluge of merchandising resulting from those. Not to mention, a new anime series that’ll be airing in July. One can see why the new anime will return to its roots instead of veering so far off the left field like the ‘huh?’ inducing Season 2 was. I for one is glad that the anime will continue from the middle part of where season 1 left off before it went completely off it’s source material. 😛

Anime Musings: Oct 2012 Fall Anime Status


Catching up on Fall Anime 2012

Photobucket

Summer has come and gone. I even skipped the seasonal first impressions post as I wasn’t really excited with the shows that aired over the Summer season. The Autumn anime offerings though, are the complete opposite. The new season is very much in full swing as all the shows in the Fall schedule have already aired. I must say that it is rare for me to pick more than a handful of shows to watch after checking out those on my ‘Before Airing List’ in any given season. More often than not, I tend to drop several shows from the initial preview list. Well, I surprise myself this time by not dropping anything outright (perhaps just one).  That’s not to say I follow each one of shows as they air.  It’s just a matter of re-shuffling the priority according to my anticipation and excitement level of the series that I’ve seen so far.  So then, what’s on my before and after ‘Watch List’? Check them out below. 😀
