The Code Geass finale and some impressions on summer
After all those rigorous final examinations, I feel happy and relaxed to have returned home. Quite a euphoria has filled me; I am in a death wish to view the entirety of Shuffle! Memories in all its ‘depth’ and ‘glory (fanservice).’ More than my rants, however, I’m very happy that the Spring season is filled with a lot of anime that possess premises which are interesting, to say the least. Now I’m not going to do a summary post, as that has been done (with more research and resources) by Omni as well as fellow anime bloggers, I simply just have a dokidoki feeling of expectation admixed with a little anxiety as there will be a slew of awesome anime (from their initial premises) coming out this summer.
I am personally waiting for Mononoke. I’ve been an avid fan of Ayakashi ~ Japanese Classic Horror ever since wao introduced it to me, and I simply adored the final arc, Bakeneko. Mononoke is a continuation of the adventures of the sharp and intelligent medicine seller as well as a commentary on the lengths of evil some men will go through to obtain their desires. It’s been the only anime (the final arc, at least) that I’ve seen perhaps more than five times (Honey and Clover included, yes) â€“ I think I’ve seen it seven times already.
I’m hoping I’d wake myself out of this inebriated and suicidal wish for Shuffle! Memories, but I don’t think anything else can hurt after seeing its first season.
I would have forgotten about this, but I also hated how Code Geass ended its first season very abruptly and incompletely. I know there’s a second season in the works, but I would have had liked it if they ended things with more flavor: admittedly, however, it was again another episode full of zigzags and twists, and I can only hope for more from this series. I’m quite besotted to it, after all.
On a final note, a good April Fools’ day to everyone. (I hope I don’t get included in your mess.)
