I guess this will always be a cycle. Just when I thought I would be a die-hard fangirl for this season, I find myself gong back to my otaku roots.I am being lulled back into reading my beloved mangas.

It has been such a long time since I read Kimi ni Todoke. I thought Shaman King was over but no! They just released the Remix Track plus the sequel Flowers.And I just finished reading 6 months worth of the latest Bleach chapters! I’m tempted to read Naruto…but not tempted enough.

I have yet to know what’s been happening with Fairy Tail and Belbo! I don’t even want to start with the new season of  Shakugan no Shana.

My schedule is already full with work, raket, Masters and doramas… Ouran High School, Hana Kimi remake

Will this ever end??? 


the rave about rave

In spite of my busy schedule, I really take time to watch anything Japanese. It seems I feel my stress ebbing away as soon as I hear a different language. My brother happen to have a treasure of an external disk where he unearthed a collection of this anime, albeit until episode 20 only. But still- this is better than nothing.

So we watched RAVE. He mentioned that this was the earlier work of the manga author of Fairy Tail- since I liked Fairy Tail, I gave it a try. 2 episodes after- I figured the author liked to recycle, characters. There were a number of characters in Rave that also appear in Fairy Tail. Case in point: Plue.

All along I thought he was just a random character in FT but no! He seems to be the ultimate guardian here in Rave. Also, Jellal! Talk about casting the bad guy twice! Well, maybe Jellal is the younger version of the antagonist in Rave.

But as opposed to FT, the progression here is so ssssllllooooowww… With FT, a lot of things already happen in a single episode: fights get finished, resolutions happen, so on and so forth. But here- oh man! A single fight takes a couple of eps! Have I been too used to fast development and not appreciate the beauty of well, slow development?

I’m hoping I can resist just reading the ep recaps and actually watch the remaining 40+ eps for this anime. Here’s to crossed fingers!

marathon

It’s been a long while since I had a marathon with my brother. I kinda lost interest in watching animes because they almost never end. But then again, Fairy Tail is an anime that has the power to pull me back to anime-watching. And it did not fail me.

I started watching this anime a year and a half ago. Never had the time and interest to watch the other eps. Well until my bro downloaded the eps. We started with ep.17 all the way to 40. Still a long way to go though…

Either way… it was fun watching anime again. It’s really funny how characters always have ‘latent’ powers that only come out when their friends are in danger and that everyone has a backstory that will haunt them in the present. Still… this is fun! More, more of Fairy Tail!!!
