Here comes the obligatory beach scene!
Episode 4 is a pretty enjoyable episode… More after the jump.
Uguu~ You said you wouldn’t laugh!
After messing with the theme files for WicketPixie 1.1.2 for one hour in Espresso trying to make the banner view correctly, make it XHTML Transitional valid, and some various tweaks, it’s finally here just in time for Spring.
New Features in the Anime Blog:
TweetThis: You will be able to share any of the anime posts posted here on Twitter, providing you have a twitter account. Make sure you follow this blog’s Twitter account for the latest anime updates
New look: No more white boxes on the side, now seamlessly integrates with the sidebar. Also, there are new buttons to subscribe to this blog and go to this blog’s Twitter account.
Other internal changes: There are changes under the hood that only I can use, including the ability to edit posts directly without going through a list of posts, customizable home page (disabled since I want to use the default WordPress layout), and various customization options without editing the code.
Otherwise, there isn’t that much drastic changes in the theme. I’m hoping to work on a new banner soon so it would be rotating. The WicketPixie theme is still in beta, so if there is something buggy, please contact me ASAP so I can try to fix it.
While Spring Semester is starting to wind down and piles of homework, exams, and etc are coming with no end causing me to delay alot of the viewing of other anime besides K-ON at the moment. Like with most anime bloggers in college, college is my first priority and blogging in the anime blog is not my highest priority but I usually post atleast one post a week.
Once spring semester is over, I will start watching Kannagi, ef, Haruhi-chan and hopefully Air and start posting about it… but just hang in there for a few more weeks… they are coming..
Note: I don’t do haituses… they are pointless and counterproductive…
Yui fails her test… and needs to make it up but…
Not much in plot advancement, but still remains a enjoyable episode.
Mio has proved herself to be the most popular shy/quiet girl in K-ON! just in two episodes… but how this compare to other girls with the same quiet/shy moe trait from other anime series. Yet’s take a look.
Kyou fans rejoice… there is going to be a OVA that will be on the 8th volume which will focus on Fujibayashi Kyou’s arc.
At a CLANNAD After Story event “Kono Machi no Negai ga Kanau Basho” held on April 12th, the extra episode bundled with the volume 8 was announced to be Fujibayashi Kyou’s arc. A preview of the episode will be held on May 24th.
The TV programming guide of BS-TBS channel provided the synopsis of Kyou’s arc in the preview section of CLANNAD After Story episode 25. It is possible that the correct synopsis of the recap episode was mistakenly replaced with the synopsis of the DVD special episode. The final volume of the DVD will be released on July 1st.
Ryou told her love to Tomoya and he accepted it. One day, Kyou offered herself to Tomoya for a practice of kiss. The next day, a rumor that Tomoya kissed Kyou was spread throughout the school. In order to deny the rumor, Kyou declared her love to Sunohara, but…

Episode 2 adds more entertaining comedy… but not better or worse than the last episode. More after the jump.
No one actually knew that K-ON!, a anime about a Light Music Club will ever be that popular? I was mistaken… Within a few days, we start seeing MADS (NSFW link) poping up and also a flood of new fanart just after the airing of the first episode. Of course it may not appeal to the Westerners, but obviously in Japan, it seems to appeal to them alot.
Not to mention, the ED is awesome… per se.
Is this true, or Kadokawa is trolling us again?
We got new news that additional episodes with new content would be added onto the reairing of Haruhi Season 1… making the total to 28 episodes and it has been confirmed in a interview. Unless Kadokawa is trolling us again, expect new episodes after the first 14 episodes finish airing…

Oh noes!!! MOE OVERLOAD!!!!!
I have watched the first episode of K-ON! and it looks promising… More after the break.
HIATUS?! This is madness!
I’m just too busy lately and unable to post any more reactionary posts on Anine due to tremendous amount of college work…. if want to know why, read more below.
As with life, all good things must come to a end. Clannad and Clannad ~After Story~ has ended up as a masterpiece which has exceed the level of Kanon (2006) in terms of storyline, music, and character development, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have flaws… just a few.
(Click Read More to read the review since it contains spoilers)
As we know, Key writes stories that have a period of happiness before making the reader or the watcher tragically crushed with a unpredictable tragic event happen to one of the characters. Don’t get me wrong, I like most of Key’s works like Kanon and Clannad and soon Air, after watching the anime adaptations by Kyoto Animation… but how this compare to other popular Shoujo anime and works? Yet’s find out, shall we?
With Clannad ~After Story~ almost done, it’s time to map out what I’m watching in Spring…. Not much… but it shouldn’t disappoint.
I’m picking up another Kyoto Animation anime again and this one is on Music and also contain comedy and Moe…. This is a adaptation of it’s manga, but not having read the manga, I don’t know much about it. We will find out on the first week of April, when it airs!
I only have watched one Episode already, but I became interested because it seems to be somewhat popular.
Our unlucky protagonist, Jin, uses the trunk of a sacred tree to carve a statue for a school project. When he takes it outside, to his surprise it begins absorbing the surrounding earth and transforms into, hold your breath on this one, a girl! So like all similar setups this guardian deity is pretty pissed that her tree was cut down and lives with Jin while she takes out her anger on squashing bugs….er, cleaning the “Impurities”.
Yes… I’m doing another Key/Kyoani adaptation, but this time, a one on a summer setting.
Yukito Kunisaki is on a journey, seeking a girl with wings who flies in the sky, as mentioned in a childhood tale. During this journey, he settles down in a small town, trying to make some money. There, he meets a strange girl named Misuzu. Misuzu quickly makes Yukito her friend and invites him to stay with her. Yukito decides to stay in the small town, and continue searching for the winged girl his mother had searched for in her life.
Thats all for Spring… It seems to be a lackluster Spring season, but oh well… maybe Haruhi Season 2 will come out next year then.
“To a place in this city where wishes come true”
Here is the finale all the people have been waiting for! Here it is!
This episode contains 120% more “maid moe!”
It’s that time again… some more Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san…
Uguu~ Not another taiyaki freak!
Almost finishing Clannad ~After Story~, now it’s time to watch another comedy anime series, Kannagi. Kannagi may be just as good as Haruhi (sorry Haruhiists) and have a pretty decent animation. More after the break!
Since I have found a blog post on Kyoto Animation wanting you to cry, here is my take on it.
I have only watch 2 of Key’s works (which have really good story line, music, and animation.) Clannad (2 seasons) and Kanon remake, I have to say that it did make me sad, but did not make me a emotional wreck. As you already know, Key’s stories have always been tragic, but at the end, they are still masterpieces because the way they tell the story. These stories are supposed to develop your emotions and also have a bigger impact at the end of the story. If we go though only happy moments, it’s not going to teach you anything. A person have to go though a time of sadness to become stronger.
Does Kyoto Animation and Key wants to take over the world and make everyone a emotional wreck? No… but I do recommend watching any of Key’s adaptations (AIR, Kanon, Clannad,etc.) who are interested in romance, school life, or slice of life anime to check it out, you won’t regret it!
Note that Kyoto Animation make other adaptations other than Key’s stuff…
Kanon is the ultimate “Sad girls in the snow” show…
Well, lately, I have been so concentrated on Clannad so much that I never posted any thoughts on all these Kanon episodes… So… lets do it, shall we?
(56k warning… alot of pictures.)
Casting spells are fun…
Before watching the next heartbreaking episode of Clannad ~After Story~, since Haruhi-chan 7-8 and Churuya-san 4 is out, it’s that time again…
The question is yes, but the single DVDs are currently difficult to find due to the ADV fiasco happened early last year caused ADV’s licensed anime being difficult to find and also the current Economic Downturn we are in also put a strain on them as well. Luckily, FUNIanimation now holds the license of AIR TV and will release a full season box set on April 21, 2008 of this year (and it’s alot cheaper buying it instead of singles… even though I have the money to buy singles), meaning that I won’t be able to watch it until early/mid May due to alot of college work after the long reading week (aka spring break) and exams coming towards the end of the Spring semester. Once I receive them and start watching, I will start blogging on it as well.
Well, after watching Kanon, Clannad, and currently Clannad ~After Story~, I gained interest in Key’s stories which are regarded as masterpieces… compared to other harem or visual novel adaptations I have seen so far. I also gained interest in some of Kyoto Animation’s work after watching Haruhi Season 1 (which is done very well) and Lucky Star. Also, I lost interest in most of today’s popular Shounen shows… because most of them are just not that great (yes, I’m looking at you, Naruto and Bleach).
After Clannad ~After Story~ ends, after three episodes… I’m going to have a period where I have nothing to watch except the episodes (until April comes!) I haven’t watched yet. Besides, I want to watch the dub version… because it’s alot easier to understand the story than just reading the subtitles that disappear after a few seconds before you even finish it.
The answer is never… Toei Animation seems to botch up the story lines of every adaptation of Key’s Visual Novels so much that it’s not even funny… They should just stick to animating One Piece.
