A short preview to Summer 2011

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

I haven’t been around for the past two weeks because I have been difficulty dealing with some scholastic responsibilities. Besides, [C] had already finished, and it was a great, if ultimately flawed, series. Aside from probably a weekly archiving of Steins;Gate, I haven’t been watching anything: I haven’t even finished Ano Hana, because even if it is one of the best series from the past season I still thought [C] was more interesting. I don’t think I’ll also watch anything novel soon, seeing that our first finals for the year is coming our way next week.

I looked at the usual places and I haven’t seen any of the series I’ve been waiting for. For the time being I only have two, anyway: I’ll watch Blood-C because I love the character designs and especially how the lead character was animated, and I’ll watch Mawaru Penguindrum because one can’t ignore the director of the Revolutionary Girl Utena series. Last, but certainly not the least (I almost forgot), I’m watching Usagi Drop, because its manga has been critically-acclaimed. It also tells the story of a kind but aimless young man trying to cherish the life of a growing little girl. That’s my kind of anime.

I’m not as keen on this year as I was the previous year. I was coming off watching what was the greatest series of all time for me, after all. Does anyone know what Mawaru Penguindrum is going to be all about?
