Sukitte Ii na yo.

00

Ah, shoujo romance manga and anime. The genre does seem to love pairing up somewhat depressed, lonely, outcast schoolgirls with popular, handsome, caring bishounen. Sukitte Ii na yo. is certainly one of these!

Mei Tachibana is an unkempt, lonely, outcast and yes, somewhat depressed school girl who lives only with her mother. She has no friends at school as having been bullied when she was much younger left her with a deep-seated distrust of others. Yamato Kurosawa is a handsome, popular and outgoing boy who is lusted after by just about every girl in school – except Mei, but that’s mostly because she doesn’t really know who he is nor particularly care, what with not paying attention to the people around her, and by being the first girl to basically ignore and outright tell him to leave her alone (a kick to the chest is pretty definitive) she becomes the first girl to genuinely capture his interest.

…god that reads like the back of the DVD case or something. Serious talk tho, Sukitte Ii na yo. (or Say “I Love You”)  is a pretty great romance with a touch of light drama and a whole heap of heart-warming moments.

Don’t you just want to give her a hug?

It’s the end of the year, and so it feels appropriate to end this blog series. It just became a chore to do this each week, and considering this blog is a hobby for me there’s no real incentive for me to continue. At least, this weekly recap series. There’ll still be posts, and I’m planning on switching to a more analytical/essay style, maybe fortnightly? We’ll see. Either way, this is on indefinite hiatus.

And it is a small post this week because 1.  A bunch of series finished last week, 2. A bunch of series are taking a one or two week break over the new year, and 3. Many fansubbers are taking time off for holidays (or are just being slow) so I haven’t seen a bunch of episodes.

Fuck yeah, it's over!

Fuck yeah, it’s over!

So this should have been done a day or two ago but whatever, I was busy. Everything’s coming to an end though, and the next season ain’t that promising. A shame, I guess. Oh, and a bunch of subs were delayed.

Merry JoJomas!

Maybe it’s because it’s nearing the end of the season, maybe it’s because I have lots of course work to do, or maybe it’s because each week I don’t really have anything useful or interesting to say, but these posts are beginning to get pretty tedious to write. I’ll see it through until the end of the season, but who knows what after then, really.

Loveliness and hugs abound this week

yay hugs and stuff

So I got my Anime Secret Santa recommendations. Kure-Nai, Natsume Yuujinchou and Paradise Kiss. Not a bad selection imo, been meaning to check the latter two out for a while so it works for me. And they’re all single-cours! Meaning I’ll probably be able to watch all 3 before Christmas.

Feels moon, man

So I finally got around to backing Kick-Heart (pledged 60 bux to get the Blu-Ray hellz yeah) and I feel pretty good about. But with less than 10 days to go and ~$20K left until it’s funded, it could go either way whether it actually gets made or not. Either way, I’m not putting my money down just for the final product ($60 for a 10 minute short + some merch is a little ridiculous), I’m doing it because this is a fantastic opportunity for international anime fans to actually and directly influence what gets made, to say “this is what we want” and make it happen, to say that we are in fact a marketable demographic and not just a second though to the studios. It helps that the creator and director, Masaaki Yuasa, has an amazing pedigree – Kaiba, Tatami Galaxy, Mind Game and Kemonozume – so this will be interesting regardless. And have you read the synopsis?

So go back Kick-Heart now.

And back to your regularly scheduled “me saying nothing for 1000 words about anime I watched recently”.

The theme for this week: manly tears
