I've been clicking on stuff randomly on CR lately.

I watched Noblesse last night. It's utterly ridiculous on pretty much all levels, but I can't help wanting to hug M-21 so I ended up watching most of it. None of it makes a lot of sense, not least why they had teacups and victorian apparel 800 years ago, but anyways...

I randomly discovered S-CRY-ed was on CR the other day. Also Vision of Escaflowne.

Super nostalgic as I watched both of those years ago. So I've been rewatching S-CRY-ed for old time's sake.

I know I watched it originally because Midorikawa Hikaru voices Ryuuho, but I am genuinely surprised Hoshi Souichirou voiced Kazuma because I've heard him in lots of things and I still really struggle to hear that it's him. Kudos to that. Midorikawa is more easily identifiable.

According to the copyright stamp on the opening titles, S-CRY-ed is from 2001. So it's 20 years old. It's probably at least 15 since I watched it if I'm honest.

Just had another session catching up with the latest episodes of the Digimon Adventure 2020 reboot. It's such a chore to keep up because it's SO boring lmao. Admittedly I usually watch at 1.5x speed. But I feel like I have to complete it because the original 1999 anime is my favorite ever, and I love the cast of characters... even though their reboot versions are completely flanderized and range from annoying at worst to bland at best.

Only a few more episodes left and it's over :silly:

I'm not sure if the Free trailer contains spoilers, but maybe hints...
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

The Mashiro no Oto anime ends in an odd and rather unsatisfactory place tbh.

It's apparently a long manga, like Yona, but I don't know if I am going to go after it yet. But the music is lovely :D And I do love that opening theme. It reminds me in places of some of the Haruka music, with the Japanese instrumental sections. May have to dig out my Haruka playlist (although they tend to use shakuhachi more than shamisen, it's still got that vibe).

Been randomly clicking on anime this week, in between other things :)

Thanks for translating the Free Final Stroke Trailer for me.  :D  I'm never sure if there are spoilers in those since I can't understand Japanese.

I finished season 1 of Daiya and will be starting season 2 soon.


I found out that The Adventures of the Little Prince is on Crunchyroll.  It used to air on Nickelodeon in the US in the early 80's. It was one of my favorites but I only remember a little bit of it  A few years ago I found an old VHS with a couple of episodes on it.  It will be interesting watching it in Japanese.


 I bought the first 2 volumes of Fly Me to the Moon manga and remembered that  I had seen an image similar to the cover image on vol 1 advertising an anime.  Looking it up I found the anime is called Tonikawa Over the Moon for You.


I shouldn't have been fooled by the pretty art on the manga covers. I was shocked by the opening scene.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Even though it's a fantasy anime some of it is unbelievable.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


I'll probably stick with it for a little bit to see if I like it.

Being able to laugh at anime ridiculous is somehow therapeutic though :)

I mean in Noblesse...

Also rewatched 'Hataraku Maou-sama' (The Devil is a Part Timer) recently. Also highly silly but it knows that it is, so it's quite good fun. Even if it's not clear how they suddenly learned to speak Japanese.

Been rewatching the new Furuba. I never did get to the end of it yet, so I need to do that.

Last night I watched the ep in Kyoto and Nara. It's so detailed I'm actually sitting there watching it going, I know where that is...I remember that place...even to the point of the store Yuki is trying to buy snacks from. O.O. It made me miss Kyoto though :/ I've never seen it with the autumn leaves, only the cherry blossom, so now I want to do that. Sigh.

Also this isn't anime but whatever. After two years of trying to get a hold of it, not made easier by the pandemic and six months in which getting stuff from Japan was difficult...I finally got the Nobunaga Concerto drama on DVD. I had the movie but the series used to be on CR. The anime still is but I like the drama better, it has more content and Oguri Shun. So I've been watching that as well.

I need to finish it too. I'm in the early part of season 2. I know I haven't ssen the Kyoto episode yet.  I think they are all at the lake house that is owned by the Sohmas   I'm impressed with how beautiful the animation is.  It feels really immersive.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I haven't watched another episode of Over the Moon for You yet.

I haven't finished Mr Love Queen's Choice/Evol Love either.  I think I made it to episode 11.   

Talking about the live dramas makes me what to look up the Daiya drama on Youtube again.  :D 

I started The Adventures of the Little Prince.  The opening theme song was a bit of a shock.  I knew it would be in Japanese but I thought it would be similar to the opening used in the dub.

This is the English theme song:

This is the Japanese.

The Japanese theme is nice too.

I watched the first episode of The Little Prince.  I thought that some of the dialogue seemed different in the Japanese version than in English and when I looked up some more information about the series I found out why.

Possible spoiler ahead.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


I got so excited about the Free Final Stroke movie that I didn't realize it will be a while before it's available to Western audiences.

I met Eric Vale at FanX this weekend.  He's a very nice guy.  His wife was there and she was nice, too.  I had him sign a picture of Yuki Sohma.  He signed it with "Stupid Cat."  :)

That sounds like a lot of fun Pokeyonekenobie.  :)  It makes me happy to hear that he and his wife were nice.  I've heard that some vas are not very nice to their fans at events.

I'd love to meet some of my favorite vas.

I've met one Japanese seiyuu once. I met Kondou Takashi one time at an event in London. He was involved in some of the series and franchises that I liked, so that was fun. He was very nice, very humble. I'd love to meet more but they only tend to go to American events outside of Japan, and that's a biiiit far away. But it was nice to be able to speak to him in Japanese and surprise him by knowing what Haruka was. :)

I've been rewatching Kyou Kara Maou. It's from quite a while back now. The main character, Yuuri, is voiced (at least in the original Japanese version) by Sakurai Takahiro, the same voice artist as Miyuki in Daiya. Which is fun because Yuuri is also a baseball mad teenager who plays catcher ;)

Edit to add: An old uni friend of mine linked me this, which is apparently airing next year (seems like a series from what the text says). It will be interesting to see whether the international streaming sites picks it up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW40VnNrowY

The anime is based around the stuff that I wrote my PhD on.

It seems to focus a lot on Shigemori. I hope that means he'll be less irritating than he is in the actual texts.

There's sadly no subtitles for the trailer. But the clip opens with the opening phrases of the actual war tale - "Gion shouja no kane no koe, shogyo mujou no hibiki ari" (The bells of the Gion Shrine echo the impermanence of all things). There's also a line in there that's very famous from the texts - "Kono Heike no ichimon de nai mono nado hito de arazu!" (Those who are not Heike are not really people!).

From that I expect it to follow the traditional 'demonise the defeated Heike' narrative that's common in the texts, but that's okay. If it becomes actually streamed over here, and people watch it, I'll probably just spend a lot of time pointing out the bits that are nonsense xD.

 I'm also curious that it seems to be based on a work by Yoshikawa Hideo, and there's a very famous work on this subject from the sixties (?) by a man called Yoshikawa Eiji. I wonder if there's a connection...

I definitely heard Sakurai Takahiro's voice in there as well.

What is everyone watching lately?   

I've been rewatching Dayia season 2.  I'll probably also go back to Over the Moon for You.

I thought Komi Can't Communicate was going to be on Crunchyroll but it's going to be on Netflix instead with new episodes uploaded weekly. 

Has anyone heard if there's going to a release date for Western audiences for Free Final Stroke?  I'm thinking it might be closer to the Japanese release date for part 2 before we get to see part 1.  That being said I don't know how long it took for Take Your Marks and High Speed to be available after their release.   

That's interesting that an anime is going to based on stuff that you wrote your PHD on Taffeta.  I heard Sakurai Takahiro too. :)
