So I finished watching “The World God Only Knows”…

And well, there’s no other way to describe it more accurately than “a ridiculous and ridiculously funny parody of the hardcore gamer stereotype”.

The premise is as retarded as it gets (a “devil” girl gets sent to earth to retrieve wayward souls and enlists the help of a gaming “god” to fulfill her mission), but somehow it manages to go out of its way to be genuinely funny in its execution. (Plus, all the references to modern and classic consoles had me in stitches.) Unfortunately, I’m too tired to think up of a proper review, and this series was so roundabout that I can’t really specifically point out particular good or bad points, but I enjoyed it immensely and will most assuredly watch the second season once it’s finished airing. =p

Kuroneko has been announced to be getting her own manga series.

And I have just mindlessly punched the air in delight at this news.

Now move along, there’s nothing to see here.

I did my good deed of the day.

I was in the supermarket across the street buying some juice and stuff to cook tomorrow, and when I got up to the cashier, this girl (late teens or early twenties — very cute, by the way) opens her deliciously nerdgasmic black Nokia 2720, and starts speaking in japanese. Normally, due to decency, whenever I hear people talking on their phones on the street I do my damnedest to block it out, because I don’t want to be thought of as someone who sticks his nose in other people’s lives or matters. But this girl was talking loudly and right freaking behind me so it was nearly impossible to not listen in. From what I heard, she was talking to her older sister (or sister-in-law; in japanese 「姉さん」/「Nee-san」 is indistinctly used for both), telling her that she was in the supermarket but not sure of exactly where. I couldn’t hold it in and excused myself for listening in to her conversation, and told her that if her 姉さん was anywhere in the place, all she had to do was find register #57 (where we were), in the most accurate and correct japanese I could muster.

Apparently, it was both very accurate and very correct, because the girl looked at me with these huge eyes (probably because she didn’t expect a random caucasian, much less someone with my nerdy looks, to be able to understand what she was saying), then looked at the register number, and I could literally see understanding dawning in her eyes: she immediately gave me a huge, gorgeous smile and thanked me, and I heard her telling her 姉さん over the phone that she just had to follow the cashier numbers and find the 57th one. Apparently she didn’t speak much spanish, because she had to wait for her relative to find us and help her pay for the wine and the batteries she was buying.

Either way, I helped a random stranger on the street today (and a pretty cute one to boot), so I did my bit for the world today. =).

So I finished watching the 2010 Cobra series…

And honestly, it’s a clear inhabitant of So Okay It’s Average territory. There wasn’t anything specially good or specially bad about it, to the point that I’m not even going to bother writing a full review like I’ve done with other stuff. It’s a nice action-based shounen series with lots of tits and ass, but nothing really to write home about.

Honestly I wouldn’t watch it again. Not because it’s bad, but because it’s… Average. =[

So I finished watching Amagami SS today…

As everybody already knows, I’m a sucker for love stories, and having heard that Amagami (an acclaimed romance visual novel) was receiving an animated adaptation, I made sure to put it in my watch queue.

I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. [Read More…]

So I finished watching Ore no Imouto/rewatching Vampire Bund…

Two very different series, but for some reason while I was watching the final episodes of OreImo I felt this irresistible urge to rewatch Vampire Bund, especially now that I got the BluRay 720p release…
