Just great.

Yeah. Just great.

Well, school has taken over my life and will continue to do so for the next week at least with one (slash two) of my exams coming up. This has also resulted in me not having much time for shows, but I will say a little about another show I’m considering sticking with, which is Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru. And isn’t that a mouthful. But I just want to say that it’s gorgeous. Sure, it’s considered shounen-ai but even if you’re not into that, it didn’t look like it was that overly done or anything in the first episode. I think also the fact that the guy likes the other guy “only” because he loved his previous incarnation who was a girl makes it less shounen-ai-ish. But then again, I haven’t read the manga and I’ve only seen the first episode so there could (and probably will be?) more to this. Either way, it is still shounen-ai so it will either be a “will they or won’t they” situation or their love will be obvious but neither of them will act on it. While we didn’t see too much use of supernatural abilities/weapons in the first episode, the opening definitely hinted at more so I’m excited for that. This definitely has a Vampire Knight feel to it but I’ve yet to determine whether that’s a good or bad thing. Still, it has its looks, supernatural-ness and voice cast going for it. (Which VK did as well…) But seriously. Takahiro Sakurai, Jun Fukuyama, Marina Inoue, Daisuke Ono, Mamoru Miyano, and Akira Ishida in the cast? I’m not even sure you can go wrong with this.

Either way, here are some gorgeous screens!

The saddest part is that the ‘ugliest’ character in my opinion is… the main character! Which is quite unfortunate. But aside from that, this is promising. I’ll admit its looks definitely work in its favour. That’s why I’m not sure whether I should get into House of Five Leaves. I’ve heard some great stuff, but it does look a little weird. Haha I feel like I’m coming off as really shallow. Either way, I will try it out, particularly since it’s up on Funimation so I’ll take a look at that. But yeah… back to studying… boo.

Oh and did I mention I restarted Golden Sun? My excuse is I’m refreshing my memory for the upcoming (hopefully in the near future) DS game, but I just also love this series and wanted to play it before I got into FFXII: Revenant Wings. I started RW and surprisingly it was quite hard, so I was also a little deterred. I think it’s because I’m not used to that kind of gameplay. But anyway, I may write some stuff about that in the future.
