x_pixilated_x: (Gakuen Heaven Hm-Ham)
Heeeeeeey peeps! Officially back on LJ XD and wow do I have a lot to talk about!

First! OMG TDK!! I need to watch it again but I'm sticking with AWESOME atm. There were a few things I didn't like (such as the cheesey voice-over thing with Rachel *gag* though I did prefer the actress that played her in this one) but overall I left the cinema with a smile (which is rare).

Anyone else seen Gotham Knight? I liked most of the art and thought the other pieces were interesting and liked the storylines.

And OH! Sleepless nights! I've recently found those Anime OVA thingies and OMG! Sheer Awesomeness. Gakuen Heaven is absolutely gorgeous. I had a bit of a problem with everyone falling over Keita but just watching the glimpses we see of the other characters more than makes up for it in my eyes.
cut for spoilers )

I have other favourites: Kirepapa (Beautiful Dad) - A thirty minute OVA about an extremely overprotective dad who goes so far as to put laxatives in his son's friends' food to keep them from 'molesting' his poor innocent child. It's light and fun to watch with a just a smidge of angst. I think it was recommended for first timers.

Now for the heart breaker. Haru no Daite: Fuyu no Semi (Winter Cicada) is made up of three thirty minute OVAs. Fuyu no Semi is a very Romeo and Julietesque tale set in Feudal Japan during a time when Japan had a closed door policy. Our main characters - Akizuki Keiichirou and Kusaka Touma - of course, are born to different families with different views on what Japan should be. Though they both believe their country should embrace cultures from all over Kusaka is part of a group that is firmly against opening Japan's doors and gets beaten when his clan grows suspicious of his loyalties.
This anime is quite unique in that while other yaoi anime focus more on the pairing, Fuyu no Semi focuses more on the characters' struggle than teh sex.
Though the ending is equal to a kick in the stomach and will probably leave you in a depressed state for days it is filled with history and struggle and shouldn't be missed.

I could go on about all the other stuff I've been up to, but...I can't be arsed ;D
What's everyone else been up to this summer?
