hmm, it’s been a long time since i wrote the last posting, seems like i lost motivated to write again or didn’t have any idea to write :D. Watching anime is a my hobby since junior high school, i have many “ways” to watch anime, for example : rent from VCD/DVD rent store (in junior high school time :D), buy from some seller in the forum (in senior high school :D) and for the college time, i realize that anime that have been sub by Fansub is free, so i rather not buy it anymore from seller in internet. Because of the “GOD-LIKE” connection in my college, download is the best option to obtain anime or sometimes i’m kinda “leech” it from my friend :D.
After Gundam 00 2nd season was finish about a months ago, seems like i would not watch anime again :D. Well, it’s wrong because in spring, there are some anime that looks “promising”, such as :
hey, it Adachi Mitsuru works again. The story keeps arround a sport that popular in japan and his other works such as H2 and Touch, which is Baseball. The anime based on the manga that won Shogakukan Manga Award for a shonen manga. The main character is Ko Kitamura and two of Tsukishima sister Wakaba and Aoba. Ko and Wakaba born on the same day and both them had been always playing together. How close Koh and Wakaba make Aoba jealous that her sister been taking away by Ko. The first part of the Cross game told us about the childhood time of Ko, Wakaba and Aoba in elementary. The second part’s takes time in four years later when Ko is in third years of junior high scholl, continuing in high school and focused on the relationship between Ko and Aoba. I will not spoiling the story again, if you’re curious enough just read the manga.
Senjou no Valkryia
This anime is based of Japanese RPG in Playstation 3, Senjou no Valkyria follows the son of a war hero who gets swept up commanding a unit against an invasion in an alternate world 1930s Europe, the main character is Alicia and yes it’s a girl. Well, after watching the first episode, the animation quality is well done drawn, the background story about why the war is happening not clear enough, maybe in the next episode will be explain. Because I haven’t played the game, I can’t told anything about story. Hopefully the story good enough to the end.
Higashi no Eden
Why this anime character’s artwork is similar to Honey & Clover? Because it have the same character designer, Umino Chika. Animated by Production I.G, Higashi no Eden is an original story of a Japanese girl on a trip to America who gets saved by a naked guy in front of the White House. The guy, who looks like a Japanese too has no memories and carries only a gun and a cell phone with tons of money on it. The mystery deepens to involve terrorism and a missile attack on Tokyo and the origin of that naked Japanese guy. hopefully the story not as heavy as Ghost in The Shell. My eyes was captivated when I see the OP song of this anime sing by Oasis- Falling down. It’s rare to see a western music taking part in anime’s industry, as I remember, Hellsing OP is also sing by Mr. Big- Shine. The animation quality is a great too, The OP song looks artistic, futuristic and surround with cinemated graphic. The ED song sing by School Food Punishment also cool ! using paper-like with some 3D CG that make it a lot more interesting and eye catching. This anime looks great to watch !
Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood
This series is a back again and it’s a remake based on the manga. the first series of FMA only follow half part of the manga with the birth of a new character and story plot .Set in a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques known to man, the story follows the brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who want to restore their bodies after a disastrous failed attempt to bring their mother back to life through alchemy. The quality animation in the second series is different than the first series, it had the same quality with the movie Conqueror of Shamballa,which is great ! The face expression sometimes change into funny mode if there was a joke or some silly scene. If you look closely, Edward’s hair color more shine than the first series :D. Some different took place in Roy Mustang’s voice actor, which is the same as Lockon Stratos’s voice actor. Eventhough the manga haven’t end, i’m kinda curious to see the storyline’s progress of the anime, is it the same as manga later? Or will make a new story plot again just like the first series.
