Another (anime)...

February 9th, 2012 (10:06 pm)

*headdesk* Finally got around to watching ep 5 and once again I'm sorely tempted to read the novel(s). Whereupon the the question becomes do I buy the original novel, the bunko release (2 vols), the LN's when they're released next month (also 2 vols; same price as the bunko release), or...? The problem is that I'm just not sure I'd actually read it/them. I read the previews that're available on Amazon as well as at Kadokawa's site, and it *seems* interesting and wasn't too difficult to read (easier than some of the LNs I read), but... I have one of Ayatsuji Yukito's other novels (the first he ever wrote) and never actually sat down and read it. (I tried recently. It was slow going getting through several pages and took more effort than I wanted to put in at the time.) Will have to think about it a bit more. >.>

And on the off-chance anyone reads Shinrei Tantei Yagumo, apparently a new novel will be released at the end of March. Looks like it'll be the first thing to be released for it in 2.5 years. ^^;

I wish I could read Yakumo. I enjoyed the anime & the manga (both versions). Based on how the anime ended, I was convinced the series was over. If you get Yakumo and read it, I would love to know if it advances Yakumo & Haruka's relationship any farther.

It's been a long time since I saw the anime or read any of the series. ^^; To be honest, I'm not sure if I'll be picking it up since it's a tankoubon release. (I jumped on GHs tankoubon release, but that's GH. ^^; ) Looking around Amazon, it appears that the bunko release for vol 7 was in late Oct last year, so once this latest vol is released, the bunko version will be 2 vols behind. I think I need to rewatch the anime since I don't entirely remember how things went with it. >.<;

Yakumo

I'm a little behind, as I haven't watched ep. 3 yet. (on a different note - I didn't realize you'd stopped following Saiunkoku!) It's definitely different and it keeps me interested.

I love Shinrei Tantei Yakumo! That's one I really liked, and I'm glad there's going to be a new novel release - I didn't realize that was on hiatus for such a long time!

Another the anime definitely has my attention this season, I have to admit that. ^^; (Unfortunately, the serious slow-down and the way the story started going for Saiun really turned me off that series. It happens. >.> )

^^; Neither did I. It reminds me of some comments I read on 2ch in the Migawari thread; novel releases can often take a serious hit when a series gets an anime release. Not sure if the anime release was related to the slowdown, but... ^^;
