General : Paradise found? ...kamo....

Well for the time being I'm back in Melaka and with the (even more) suckier-than-dial-up hostel LAN. To anyone who's going to MMU, PLEASE DO NOT LIVE IN EP IF YOU WANT TO USE THE INTERNET!!

Ok rant out of the way, I've found another place to rent.Hopefully it'll work out well and I'll be having unrestricted access to my own DSL line (hoho).

Well, i don't have much to say about my own affairs so on to the anime thoughts of the post:

GSD: Sunrise is really threading the fine line between genius and fool. Ep.41 was such a bloody waste of money. 42 is.... just a bit almost there as well. I sooo wanted to see Infinite Justice in action! Instead, they wasted the whole episode with more fight scenes, showing how sucks Cagalli actually is with a MS(but well she did nicely punch the ball-less bastard Jona) and how Lacus can go on and on and on and on.... you get the idea. I'm like, Lacus, just kick Athrun in IJ and eject him out instead of talking cock and waiting for him. In the end, it was:

*fading in of Kimi to boku ni niteiru music*
"Athrun Zala, Justice, deru-zo(?)"(and he flies out)
*KIMI NO SUGATA-WA......(song)"

Oh well, you get the idea. It's kinda irritating for me. On the plus side, there seems to be some changes to the tradition of the trio chars piloting some prototype MS with them on the good(?) side instead of the bad one. The Lacus Groupie trio was quite good with their MS(what model is that? *edit* oh they're called DOM's). I hope they didn't organize something like LLL(Love Love Lacus) or on the lines of it. Oh man, I'm getting infected by Shuffle!,lol. On the topic of Shuffle!...

Shuffle! : Watched 3 and 4. I do not want to mess around with Nerine-chan liao. The "lesson" she taught those guys is ..... scary, lol. But well, she did get Loyalty +10 from me. It seems to me that Nerine = mahou-tsukai while Sia = chair master.Oh, and Primula-chan just looks sooo sexy when she was wearing Tsuchimi's shirt not to mention deadly as well when she was pointing that knife to Tsuchimi, almost choked at that part, lol. I also noticed that there's 2 Rin's in the series, so I'll be using Tsuchimi and Nerine for ease of identification.I'll reserve more comments for Episode 5. Being a Kaede lover also, I'm hearing some good things about her and ep.5.

*Addition* : Just watched Ep.5. Yup as they say, definitely a Kaede episode.The perfectness of Kaede's care earns her +50 on my moe meter, lol(I'm stealing terms already). And sick Kaede look, kawaiiness + 100(pics later). There seems to be something in past with Kaede and Tsuchimi, with the "YURUSENAI" thing. I wonder what could it be, hmm... Oh and Asa-sempai, nee-chan-ness +5, Primula-chan, +10 on the Rei lookalike scale.

Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid : Watched ep.4, some nice catfighting between Mao and the yuri twin. Good mecha action as well with the nice strategy of "All Creatans are liars". Screwed up Blueno nicely. And so finally, next episode will be the start of the real story of the FMP:End of Days novels. Expect some nice car chases, Mao's sexiness and SousukexChidori humour. Buying crabs anyone?

Speed Grapher: Marathoned till Ep.15. Somehow,I feel Gonzo's losing the momentum already. Generally, Gonzo starts to screw up their shows around middle part and it's seeming that way already. SG has some nice execution and a fairly good story(in the end though, isn't it just a loli-lover's dream, running away with a 15 yr-old girl). It's kinda getting repetitive with them sending more of those "Euphorics" to hunt him down. I hope that Gonzo won't screw up royally again. Oh, and I really really like Kagura-chan ^^.

Gunbuster 2: Marathoned this also. Ahh.... can't wait for the rest. Gainax shows off their mastery with the FLCL-style storytelling again with this show. Some parts are a bit illogical though (-1 billion degrees Celcius anyone?). Anyone know when's the ED is going to be released?

Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu: OMG, sooo damn sad.... I pity Iriya and the male lead(forgot his name). I hear there's only 6 episodes so I might up a review once the last ep's out. Marathoned it until ep.5 liao.

Well's that's all I have to say for this post. Hopefully the next will be in my new place with my own DSL line instead of going to a cyber cafe, hehe. Untill then, ja mata.
