I miss Japan  
I terribly miss Japan and the people there U_U
Also being able to buy manga easily.
But well, now it's time to find a job so I can go back next year, and this time as a tourist, so I can use the always awesome JR Pass!
Cause I wanna travel! Go to Nikko, Mount Fuji, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Nara, and of course, Okinawa. Yeah, I know I'll need more than one trip for all that.

Since I cannot keep track of the new manga any more, I am trying with anime.
And that's why I decided to watch four of the new series this season.
Something that I've never done before, btw.
I only follow one or two series while they are airing, and I watch anything else after they are already over.
But this time, there are four that I find really insteresting, so I'm gonna give it a go and try to watch them every week (plus HBO's Game of Thrones). That will keep me busy for a while.

The series I'm talking about are:



Sakamichi no Apollon

Kimi to Boku 2

So what do you think? And what are you going to watch this Spring?

I always miss them too. Thankfully I have a faithful LJ friend who always posts them. :D

Sankarea was okay. I was moderately interested in the main character, who...has a zombie fetish, in that...he really likes zombies. And wants to date one. :P And then he meets a pretty girl, and I think where it's going is going to be that she's somehow a zombie. I heard somewhere that it's listed as being in the sort of "ecchi" genre, but the first episode wasn't all that ecchi, so... I'm going to give it one more to see where it goes. *nod*

And I feel the same way about Hiiro no Kakera. I was sort of turned off by the fact that it was based off a game, and then... Yeah, the girl was totally boring in the first episode. I'll watch more of it if I start hearing it's awesome or something, but... I also find that genre really boring.

Tasogare OtomexAmnesia - So I watched half of the first episode of this last night, and hated it. There were a lot of gags that weren't funny at all, and it definitely has a really immature, kind of ecchi feel to it. Not what I was expecting at all. :/

I actually kind of like sports anime, so... Maybe I'll give Kurako a try. I looked at that a little, and decided I was watching too much already, but... We'll see.

I didn't realize Zetman was done by Masakazu Katsura. That sort of...makes me more interested, though to me I'm not really seeing a similarity in the style. I'll have to pay closer attention. And no, I haven't read the manga, so I'm just going off how the story came across in that first episode. And I thought it was pretty interesting/engaging.

I definitely see what you mean about Japan sort of encouraging you to be more current. That's kind of how I feel now about tumblr, lol. ;) I see people posting about stuff, and it's sort of like "well, if I don't watch this now, I'll just be spoiled for later, so..." ;)
