The new Full Metal Alchemist movie's trailer doesn't have Nazis that I could recognize...which is a plus, and hey, L'Arc~en~Ciel has a new song. They already provided three other songs for the franchise, so I look forward to their new song.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 25! the end. Lag is able to shine enough to distract the Cabernet from its path toward the artificial sun/his mother. Lag quickly disposes of it. Life goes on. While Maka's knowledge of Lag and the revelation about Lag's mother were interesting, the anime doesn't really delve deeply into what, why, & how. ~7/10 rating~ The anime lost its weird and mildly perverted humor when it strayed from the manga, but the anime was cute and original.

Kimi ni Todoke jmovie! Um, live-action Sawako may have been so shy and naive that she appeared to be...sloow. Nonetheless, the movie is charming in its own way. The casting is pretty good. Mikako Tabe as Sawako is perfect because of her naturally scary face. Haruma Miura as Kazehaya was decent; maybe a tad too pretty than 'fresh'. The actor who plays Ryu appears too old to be in high school, but he is still a cool character. The movie sticks pretty closely to the manga and follows Sawako as she makes friends with Yano-chin and Yoshida. It also covers her rivalry with Kurumi which is thankfully, only around ten minutes before moving on. And of course, her love/friendship with Kazehaya is the main focus. There are only a few small original additions to the movie. One cute addition is the backstory with Sawako's father. And the final scene is an original ending to wrap up the movie. ~7/10 rating~ There's an extreme lack of sparkles and bubbles. And much of the manga's humor seems to be cut for timing. But for fans, it was a good interpretation of the original story.

----------------
And anime...
Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 24! Almost the end. Maka comes to protect the city's residents while the Bees, Niche & her sister fight the Cabernet (yes, still a silly name for an insect creature). While celebrating a short victory, the bad guy sacrifices himself to revive the creature. And Noir takes a fatal blow for Lag.

Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi OAD! The prequel to the tv series, I guess. This covers the main characters' relationship in high school. Episode 0 is basically this. Boy sees older boy pick up abandoned kitten on the street. Boy stalks boy via library books. Boy confesses to boy. Boy and boy take part in smutty action on the first date and later in the library. Boy wakes up from the dream/flashback. There's twinkle-twinkle music, soft lighting and excessive blushing. While the set-up isn't very interesting, Shungiku Nakamura's ukes are humorously spastic. As far as animation production? On par with Junjou Romantica's with a tiny upgrade in overall visual look.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 23! We finally see what happened to Gauche at Akatsuki. He got to snuggle up with Lag's mother who apparently took his heart. Seems like she powers the artifical sun or something like that. Gauche and the Bees fight to prevent the Cabernet from reaching Central.

Level E 10! was a straightforward episode this time. The Color Rangers save a mermaid. I like how the blue ranger is so much like Gon from HxH. Cute & happy episode!

Level E 9! Alien sex-change shoujo-like story sponsored by Pizza Hot...Cute.

Kimi ni Todoke S2 8! A lengthy build-up to a realization. And the school festival.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 22! I like the little postal workers with their hats with sparkley bees.

Kimi ni Todoke S2 7! Pin wins. Even if the two main characters are very dense, it's actually funny to see the light bulbs turn on for all the supporting characters.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 21! The bad guys were lying. Noir finds out and turns against them. Zzz...

Ah! My Goddess ~ Together Forever OVA 1! Keiichi asks Belldandy out on a date. Her happiness infuses all the humans in the area so much so that it threatens the jobs of the whole goddess system. Yeah, it's still cavity-inducingly sweet. After all these years, Keiichi still has no idea how to talk to Belldandy. Anyway, the animation was not as pretty as I had hoped. It was just a random filler episode for manga fans. This anime reminded me of how pretty Yoko Ishida's singing is--live concert video and PV to a couple anime songs. Oh yeah, she doesn't sing the opening song to the OVA..a minus.

Chonmage Purin jmovie! A young Edo samurai slips through time into the future. He meets a single working mother of one son, and helps them out with domestic tasks while trying to figure out what to do with his life. He discovers a talent for making desserts. Pudding, cake, yum! There's a certain cheese factor to how true the samurai stays in character or as himself. That is some of its charm, too. It's a fluffy movie, and after you get past the slow start, it sorta floats nicely to the end. I think the j-idol playing the main character is popular, but eh, I forget his name.

Bartender
1! jdrama. Sasakura Ryu is introduced as someone who quit being a bartender after his sensei(?) tells him he doesn't know what it means to be a bartender...or something like that. A young woman hunts him down to make a drink for her hard-to-please grandfather. I think this is more loosely based on the manga than the anime was. It seems to be building up more drama with an angsty past and rivalry. Arashi's Aiba Masaki plays the main character, but I think he has only two facial expressions; blank and even blanker...which doesn't appeal to me.

And some anime blips.

Kimi ni Todoke S2 6! gotta love complete misunderstandings.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica 7! My fascination with the background sets has waned. The only thing left are the prepubescent magical girls who feel like the world is against them, whine whine. Dropped.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 20! Lag needs Connor's dog, Gus, to sniff out the Cabernet gaichuu out from the underground.

Level E 6! The Baka Prince sends the kids to an RPG planet to torment them a little more. :)

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 19! Zazie vs. Jeel with a side of melodrama.

Beelzebub 6! Baby's toys from hell create problems. The execution of the show is flat; ie. it's not that funny. Dropped.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 18! I was wondering why the 2nd opening visuals didn't match Suga Shikao's new song a few episodes back, but now they do, and the new visuals have a great color palette and are nice to look at. Those who read the manga say that the anime is going down its own story path now. Boo, so we'll probably never know what Maka's mysterious observation about Lag was. Anyway, Holden Caulfield is a place where they built an airship...amusing. Gauche and the Marauders visit a lab which they accidentally blow up. Zazie finds that his malice bullets don't work on someone with more malice. Lag finds that he cannot shoot his heart bullets when his heart is uncertain in regards to Gauche/Noir. Yeah, the BL kinda oozes out of Lag.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 17! Gauche returns to Reverse under the pretense that he never got his heart back. Lag cries.

Beelzebub 4! The baby's pee threatens to drown the city. It's as unfunny as it sounds.

I can't seem to find any new, new manga titles to get hooked on. I also need to avoid online shopping and mechanics. Very bad for my wallet.

Tegami Bachi: REVERSE 16! Gauche wanders off, finds Rhoda, and says he is Noir again. Niche is cute.
