I blame you Mona! :P

And so, it's now been... 3 months? More? Less? Since I've switched to a high-speed 'net connection and I've finally gone over to the "dark" side and started DLing anime. The title? Saiunkoku Monogatari. (This is definitely all your fault toriru4ever! As a result of your pimping, I've DLed a BT client (will probably change to a different one; I'm not liking this one very much), a bunch of video codecs, and so far have nabbed Saiunkoku Monogatari 1, Jyu Oh Sei 1, and Yume Tsukai 1.


Saiunkoku was interesting although I found the initial story premise a bit... okay a lot of a stretch. It strikes me as potentially cute, fun and interesting or could go downhill to cheesy. Either way, I figure I'll try hunting down some more episodes and seeing how it goes.

Jyu Oh Sei... based on the manga by Itsuki Natsumi (Hana Sakeru Seishounen, Yakumo Tatsu, Demon Sacred, Oz...) I'm pretty sure I've read the first chapter or maybe the first volume of this manga but I never really got into the series. I might try hunting it down again and seeing how the original went. Likewise, (depending on HD space) I might try DLing what else is available for this title. SF is more hit and miss for me, and I'm not sure if I'm really interested in this one.

Yume Tsukai. >.< Definitely aimed at the younger crowd, I found certain aspects rather cringe worthy. Might be cute for younger viewers but I definitely doubt I'd continue hunting this one out.


So, seeing as I've decided to plunge into the murky depths of DLs, any series people would definitely suggest? (Currently on my purchase list is Jigoku Shoujo, Blood +, Trinity Blood, and Det. Conan. I'm DLing Honey & Clover 1 and Kino no Tabi 00 next). Also, any suggestions for BT clients?
