Any number of things make a post

I had a sudden epiphany about Penguindrum. And I know. It's genius. Thank me later.

Spoilers for Mawaru Penguindrum. And for inane talk )


No. 6 novels are an amazing thing, they talk about social issues/inequalities like whoa, everyone has to read it (sadly, the anime doesn't stand a chance, mainly for its ending), etc., but now I just have to say that woman DID the research in a very different area:

Spoilers for Vol. 1 quotation )


Rec me science fiction books, people.

Mawaru Penguindrum. End.

I'm too lazy to structure this post so I'm going to list my thoughts. I don't think will be re-watching this one, and it's a series that probably needs to be watched more than once to be fully understood so I may be kinda off:

Thoughts about all of the series. Spoilers, spoilers. )

Well, definitely it wasn't comparable to Utena in quality, and it did annoy me in more ways than one. But still. Worth discussing. When I can clear my mind.


Totally unrelated ETA: I'm unable to comment on any LJ entry whatsoever. I don't even know why.

More Mawaru

But WHY isn't Mawaru Penguindrum finished?

Okay, granted. I have only watched the first episode, but OMG. The. The. IKUHARANESS. It kills me.

So I'm sad I'm going to agonize for episodes.

Episode 1 spoilers. Are Ikuhara. )

I'm so. So. Excited. While I ignore my uber urgent priorities.

Why did no one tell me this existed?

Also. Since LJ/DW knows it all; I have seen these books recommended in Amazon and other places, they made it sound like they were some post-capitalist, kind of progressive sc-f books. Both are written by white men though:

The Windup Girl.

And Seed.

Anyone heard of them/read them?

My last exam is tomorrow

But look at me. Seriously, what do you guys think about the Black Rock Shooter OVA?

Because I'm finding it so shinny.

Everybody and their dogs know this

... but I so fail at this "study" thing.

I'm watching and re-watching the Blood-C opening though.

Man, CLAMP. I miss you.

Should I bother with Kannazuki no Miko? Why haven't you recommended it to me? Is it bad?

Spoilers because I spoiled myself )

Not so funny procrastination

Seriously, I have been reading the Puella Magi Madoka Magica wiki (beware spoilers, this is a show you don't want spoiled) as if I have nothing else to do. Also the TV Tropes page about this series.

So I wrote an entry I will never post because reading everyone's posts about this actually marred my original thoughts.

Also, I NEED to study.

I should be studying

Instead I'm watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I'm on episode 09. And... asjahsghajvsgaksvkvs. Comments to come.

ETA: I ended it! Would so talk about it tomorrow, or when I take my computer again to procrastinate.

Eden: it's an endless world! Vol 9.

Dude, Gundam 00! Now I know where you got all of your political progressive themes! I think I can guess where this is going thanks to G00! (The similarities are just too much; obviously the quality gap is also too big, Eden never simplified the way Gundam did.)

Actual spoilers:

Cut for actual spoilers of vol 9 )

I want to watch Black Lagoon, damn it.

I also read Kuroshitsuji up to the last chapter. My thoughts: don't bother.

Gundam oo question

Hey, people who had watched or know about Gundam 00:

Should I bother, or its politics are going to make me laugh/hit my head against a wall?

Don't mind spoilers if they are about failtastic politics.

(I ask because I can't watch anything due to slow internet and youtube hating me, and my classmate has the complete series.)

Okay. This made me feel better

ALL OF OOKU (translated to english until now) IS UP ON MANGAFOX PEOPLE! (Also. TRIGGER WARNING: vol 2 has a lot of rape scenes. A lot. (Spoilers in the comments.)

Also, thanks to [personal profile] pseudo_tsuga for pointing this to me. Let's do a "follow Monday"... something:

[community profile] animanga_news:

This is intended as a Dreamwidth-oriented newsletter for anything anime/manga related. Fan art & fiction, meta & discussion, icons & graphics, release dates and more. Because there is animanga content on DW, only sometimes it can be hard to find.
