Papepipu♪ Papipepu♪ Papepipupo♪ by Nozomi Sasaki

Beelzebub ED4. so so cute.

Nendoroid Prince Baka Ki El Dogra

from the sci-fi gag manga Level E, comes Prince Baka Ki El Dogra, AKA Baka-Ou.

wiki character description:
First prince of the planet Dogura. He has an exceptionally high IQ and has little interest other than using it to torment those around him for his own amusement.

that pretty much sums up everything about him. wonder if this is how all people with high IQ works? being too bored and all. HA!

Fall 2011

Fall has always been about lots of sequels, 5 of which i'm watching, plus the much anticipated prelude story of Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Zero. while the number is surprisingly lesser than summer, one can expect great things from this season since they look to be all quality shows.

as per Summer season, will be blogging each new Fall series as i watch them. all biased opinions ahead.

all biased opinions are up!

taken from ANN: Chihaya (CV Seto Asami) is a frank and ebullient girl who becomes fascinated by the obscure world of competitive karuta, a card game based on Japanese poetry. Introduced to the competitive style of the game by a quiet and thoughtful elementary school classmate named Arata (Hosoya Yoshimasa), the two soon become close friends. They start playing as a group with Taichi (CV Miyano Mamoru), Chihaya's smart and athletic childhood friend, until they have to part ways during middle school due to several circumstances. As their high school life begins, they meet once again.

Fall 2011-13

a show that wasn't in my original intended watch-list, i found it hard not to give it a try after reading so many positive reviews and gosh was i glad i did. my initial thoughts when i read the series synopsis was, "how do you make a card game about Japanese poetry interesting?" after Ep1, i realized the focus wasn't on the game itself, but really about the characters and how playing kurata gave them a sense of belonging. especially for Chihaya and Taichi, the former who is always living under her older sister's shadow, and the latter who is under constant pressure by his mom to excel in everything he does.

of course, it helps that Taichi is voiced by Mamoru-kun, in which my internal fangirl squealed the moment i heard his voice. ohohohoho~

Persona 4 The Animation
for reasons yet unknown, Yuu (CV Namikawa Daisuke) had to move from Tokyo to stay with his uncle and his daughter in a small rural town. murders started taking place shortly after he arrives, and things get even weirder when he and his new friends, Yousuke (CV Morikubo Shoutarou) and Satonaka Chie (CV Horie Yui) are pulled into a TV at the electronic store into an alternate world where they encounter monsters known as Shadows. this however, makes Yuu awaken and summon his "persona", a large powerful being that is able to fight the Shadows on his behalf.

Fall 2011-11

supposedly a faithful adaptation to the PS2 game, it really wouldn't make a difference to me since i don't actually play any video games myself. wasn't particularly impressed with Ep1, since there wasn't much happening besides the basic character and story introduction. that is, until Yuu summoned his Persona at the last 5 minutes of the episode.

there's still lots of time and space for plot development since it's a 2-concur series, and i've seen and heard enough feedback that it is pretty solid so far. as i've mentioned before, for someone that doesn't like playing actual RPG games, an anime adaptation is as good as someone playing so i can watch all the pretty graphics.
