Ok, Four new Saiyuki Wallpapers have been added. To "My Wallpapers" section. Hope you like!

Boma at 10:13 PM

OK, first off, I have been inspired and will soon be adding new wallpapers to my wallpapers section. Mostly Saiyuki, Fruits Basket, and Vampire Game ones. So they'll be up in the next couple of days. But I am upset. I found out that Inuyasha will be leaving us, airing it's last episode in Japan sometime in September. The final episode being number 167. So hopefully they'll put a super duper fantastic ending to this series or I'm gonna write some angry letters. Ok, that's about it, for rambling updates for now.

Just finished watching the first disk of Gravitation, Fateful First Encounter. Not bad overall. Not something I'll run out and buy, but something to keep an eye on. Pretty much it's about Shuichi who aspires to become a rock star. He and his best friend Hiro form a band 'Bad Luck'. One evening while walking through the park for inspiration for his song he comes across Eiri Yuki, a romance novelist. Yuki severely criticizes Shuichi's work. So, ever since this criticism, this is all he can think about and ultimately improves his lyrics. It's a romance anime as things develop between Shuichi and Eiri. Eiri pretty much looks pissed throughout the first disc whether he's telling Shuichi he's a dumb brat or kissing him in the elevator. (I think he pretty much does that just to shut him up sometimes.) Shuichi is very emotional or rather wears them on his sleeve. But I can understand his reaction to Fujisaki's "interference" with his song even if it was for the better. When you have something that you created and you worked really hard on, you don't want anyone messing with it. OH WELL! The animation is good. I like the super deformed and chibi-ized appearances Shuichi takes on. He's soo CUTE! I could do without the pink hair but I'll live. Ryuuichi is worth seeing though! He is an absolute riot! When he's trying to cheer Shuichi up and he keeps pulling things out of his coat from candy and sake to stuffed rabbit thing and a birds nest complete with chirping chicks. I'd give this anime a 7.5 out of 10. Oh one more thing I like about the animation is the mixing of live action and the the animation. Like in the beginning of the first episode you see a kid running through the street. But it's filtered so all the shapes are blurred. Rather it looks like the segments on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim where they show a scene from Tokyo. That's the filter that looks like the one they used here. Another time, during the concert, you see the animation, Shuichi and Hiro on stage, and down where the dance floor / pit is you see the silhouette of people jumping up and down, waving their arms etc. This is the first time I've seen animation used like this. It blends well and ads to the anime itself, so I approve of this style. : ^) 'k, here's some pics.

Sorry, I've been baaaad. Haven't updated this thing in a while. ANYway, I have however watched the first disc of Gungrave and am now begging my brother to sell it to me since he wasn't particularly crazy about it. I however loved it. The thing I like the most about it it the characters. They don't fit, totally anyway, into the stereotypes of the many anime personas. Branden Heat, a man of VERY few words, but says many things through facial expressions. He broods and is the muscle of the gang. But before I go further with the characters, I'll explain the episode set-up on this first disk. First episode is "present day" and the birth of the main character 'Beyond the Grave', very cool. This guy is HUGE! Probably the biggest characters I've seen and umm proportioned. He seems to be a mix of Vash (Trigun), Alucard (Hellsing), and a touch of Vicious (Cowboy Bebop). Vash = height, Alucard = shooting style, and Vicious = face looks a bit similar. Anyway, this episode you have the development of questions. WHo exactly is 'Grave'? What is 'Milleniun'? etc. The rest of the episodes is backflash. A development of the characters' relationships and further questions of WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THEM? We all know and is no shocker that Brandon is Grave. But still there is the WHY? ok, so in the backflash, there is a gang consisting of Brandon, Harry, Nathan, Kenny, and Joless. Brandon is the main muscle. Harry is the brains but he does his fair share of fighting and is not defenseless. Nathan, even though the character is good, I believe, is just filler, a body really, to bring up the number of their group. Kenny's the thief, the kid, wanting to show-off and be cool but just gets into trouble instead. Joless is the quiet, shy one, the "sacrificial lamb" if you will . . . so theirs the group. But you have to wonder now how does Harry earn his new nickname "Bloody Harry" in the present day and how Brandon/Grave got to be the way he is. I approve of this one. I don't particularly care for the music maybe I just have to here more. But as of now it doesn't really impress me. I will be keeping an eye on this one.

On a side note, I'm up to volume 8 of the Vampire Game manga. I love it! I wish they would make it into an anime, but then it would probably be butchered. I also started up Psychic Academy. So far so good, I'm enjoying it. Another one to recommend. Until next time and here is some caps of Gungrave.
