Wow! (About very little ^^; )

I can't believe... I went to bed before midnight last night. I will admit I was extremely tired, but it's been years, since I last went to bed before midnight (short of feeling so icky-sick that staying vertical was an impossibility maybe... assuming I've been that sick in the past several years). So, for a change, I got more than the 6 hours of sleep my body tends to like (and would normally wake me up immediately thereafter), but also thanks to that, my back didn't like me much this morning. (Is that why I don't tend to sleep/stay in bed all day any more? I rarely read in bed all day anymore. ;_; )

Oddly enough, I did find an omake story for SS2 while flipping through some notes last night. ^^; Granted this doesn't affect English readers so much, and I have no idea why I didn't type it up. (I'm assuming I didn't. I don't remember typing it up). Maybe because it's too silly. We'll see if I type it and eventually UL it. ^^;

But, I did manage to do a lot of anime viewing this weekend. I wanted to get that done ASAP on the odd chance there'd be a title I'd want to look at subbing. There's one that caught my attention immediately until I did some digging and discovered it's pre-licensed (Seirei no Moribito / Guardian of the Sacred Spirit). Of the rest that I watched, no new titles are grabbing me to be subbed, so unless something comes up in the next week, we'll be continuing with our current projects/titles (yes that includes S2).

Of the titles I watched...

Seirei no Moribito (3)--I very much like this one. So much that if it weren't pre-licensed, I'd probably consider subbing it. However, it is pre-licensed, so it's off-limits. Unfortunately, I don't know when it's planned for release. >.<; It's based on a novel series, so I'm thinking about picking up the books. I'm not sure if I want to buy them one at a time, or take the plunge and buy the seven volume set that's offered and pick up the last 3 books separately. ^^;

Darker than Black (2)--ep 1 was a bit meh in my mind but ep 2 was better. Not entirely my sort of anime, but FSU will like this one I think. We'll see how it goes.

Sola (2)--I rather like this one. Perhaps because I also like things like Kanon and Air? We'll see how the story develops, but it has an interesting premise so far.

Shining Tears x Wind (1)--Wow, that was bad. That was incredibly bad. ^^; FSU was watching as I watched on my laptop and even without volume (I was using my headphones) she thought it was bad. Cheesy story without being good cheese. I thought I heard the name "St. Luminous Academy" mentioned in the story (it's the title of another anime; not a good anime, but not a horrible one either).

Koutetsu Sangokushi (2)--surprisingly poorly rated on anidb, and while the animation isn't anything to write home about, the music track is interesting and the story's proving to be intriguing. I assume from the title that it uses Sangokushi as it's base, but I'm not very familiar with the story. (I did buy vol 1 of a book with that title, but I can't find it at the moment; I haven't read the book yet.) It's a Chinese-style epic fantasy-adventure story, but without the book as a base, I'm not sure about trying to work on it.

Hayate no Gotoku (3)--fun more childish anime. Hayate has to have some of the worst luck ever! Boy am I glad I don't have his parents... O_O Will follow this for the time being, but over all, will depend on how many eps this is planning on going for.

Kaze no Stigma (1)--interesting story premise; I'm reserving judgement on this until after another ep or so to determine if it'll really be worth following or not.

Romeo x Juliet (2)--Decided to try it; we'll see how it goes. I'm thinking of it as more of a guilty pleasure right now. ^^;

Hitohira (3)--this one's another guilty pleasure right now. I'm having fun with this story so far. Poor Mugi.

Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica (2)--the story premise is a bit meh for me. But beyond that, I'm liking the series itself so far. Ep 1 was more meh; ep 2 was cuter. Unless we actually start seeing a point to the eps soon, it'll be dropped though.

Claymore (2)--interesting story although the boy is majorly annoying. I think we'll be following this. (Seems to be another title FSU would like).

Seto no Hanayome (1)--......*Maybe* people who like FLCL would like this, but I'm not even sure of that. Definitely not even bothering. I wonder why I bothered watching the whole ep myself. >.>

Heroic Age (1)--post-apocalyptic SF. More FSU's style than mine. The story premise wasn't bad, and it seemed interesting, but... not really my style, so I probably won't follow it. FSU seems interested so I'll pull it for her until she says otherwise.

Saint Beast (2)--pretty boys. Ohhhh, look at all the pretty boys. >.> Semi-interesting story with the potential to become annoying. I might try another ep before deciding to drop this. Either that or I'll drop it now. Haven't fully decided yet.

Saiunkoku Monogatari 2 (2)--I wasn't impressed with how ep 1 started the season; it was a bit too tongue-in-cheek compared to the original story, but ep 2 was better. Shall see how season 2 goes.

So of the titles, on the watch list are Seirei no Moribito, Kokumono season 2, Claymore, and Sola; on the maybe list are Hitohira, Romeo x Juliet, Hayate, Koutetsu Sangokushi, and Darker than Black; on the probable drop list are Saint Beast, Polyphonica, Heroic Age, and Kaze no Stigma; on the junked list are Shining Tears x Wind and Seto no Hanayome. Still to be checked out is Emma season 2 and anything else that might pop up in the next week or so. After watching all that, it's little wonder I was so brain-dead yesterday. >.>

I have messages and stuff catch-up today. ^^;
