If I had my way all the time all my reviews would turn out into my LJ posts which in turn are full of fail since I sometimes don’t know what I’m typing about. This will be shorter then Mary’s essay since I got capped talking to her on msn last night – Less text and more pictures. (HAH! I lasted 8 days more then you.)

2008 has been eventful especially for me. Lots of asian going on.

Because I’m lacking creativity on how to present my end of year post I’ll just do a countdown of my 8 favourite things of the year. 8 for ’08? Man am I witty or what? There’s no better way to end a year than a tl;dr post.

My less-than-stellar colouring of the manga but I love this scene so much

EDIT: FUCK YAY! THERE IS GOING TO BE A SCHOOL RUMBLE Z (2?) WHICH WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WILL BE ABOUT BUT IT’S OUT OCTOBER 17 GUYS

As you may or may not know, School Rumble is my favourite anime/ manga franchise of ALL TIME. Just wanted to write about how School Rumble is officially ending with the next chapter (284 I think) of the manga being the last. I actually haven’t kept up reading the scans (stopped at like 170ish) and decided to collect the Del Rey versions instead but I do read minor spoilers from the chapters and honestly, I’m kind of glad that it’s ending becasue from the direction the manga was going to I would have been more upset if they decided to drag on the series any further and giving us more “reset endings”.

Just one thing I want from the ending – closure for the flag/ jersey faction, if nothing happens between them my hopes will be crushed

Other than that, just a funny ending with lots of happy, pairings, kissing, romance and rumble is fine too.

In other news the first episode of the School Rumble sangakki OVA just came out. YAY, I will settle for the raws right now and watch it because I have been deprived of School Rumble goodness in you-don’t-know-how-long. Let’s hope that they decide to make a third season seeing as how the manga will be finished very soon.

I can’t believe that I’m still bothered to blog this show, but hey, it’s great fangirling material! While the subs weren’t out yet I actually watched the raws because I am that pumped for this show. I think that this is the point where It Started With A Kiss 2 actually started off but correct me if I’m wrong, either way, this episode = more incessant squees.

DISCLAIMER: THIS EPISODE MAY KILL YOU FROM HAPPINESS, I HAVE A FEVER (well not because of the episode … but still).

Finally, after acting like an ass for 13 episodes Naoki finally goes dere dere and I found out the true meaning of the “rain scene”. I don’t usually do single episode reviews (other than first episodes) but it’s true, Itazura na Kiss kill’d me dead.

All hail the rain scene!

First of all, Antique is NOT BL, yaoi, shonen-ai or whatever you want to call it, there’s only one gay guy and the other three are straight (ahem Chikage) so please don’t brush Antique off as angsty buttsecks after buttsecks, and if you do go DIAF watch your Naruto and for those yaoi fangirls who will brush it off because they won’t get their dose of fanservice, go get corn raped watch Romantica Junjou or whatever crap you guys are watching right now.

Now that I have that out of the way.

Antique Bakery is an anime based on the manga series of the same name by Fumi Yoshinaga, the series won the 2002 Kodansha Manga Award for shōjo and was previously made into a fairly popular drama. Antique Bakery takes the timeslot after Toshokan Sensou (which is awesome by the way) in the noitaminA block which is an anime block used to target an audience that would not usually watch anime. The series is planned for 12 episodes and after that we get the Nodame Cantabile SECOND SEASON! :D
