[I'm all | groovalicious]

But first... I got a bad haircut and I'm really pissed off about it ><

Also, AniPuri ended and I'm really depressed about it ;_;

Furthermore, my not-limited-edition Kesshou album is lost in the mail and I'm concerned about it ¬¬

SO, I watched most of the new shows. At least I watched the first 5 or so minutes of all the new shows. Some of 'em I couldn't stomach for much longer than that. I won't list those here. I'm only going to tell you about the ones I will probably be watching.

Actually I wont be watching Law of Ueki, but it looks pretty good. You might wanna check it out. It's about a guy who can randomly make trees out of stuff. So, it's kinda like FMA, but doesn't look like a ton of angst and it takes place in the present rather than in the past. I'm not just uber-keen on magical-d00d anime really, so I prolly won't keep up with it, but I can't say it's bad.

If you like boobies and panty shots, you might wanna check out This is my master. It's about maids or something in a rich d00ds house, and the rich kid keeps sorta messin with the maid-chicks... they're all jr high age incidentally. I dunno, I sorta thought it was st00pit. Plus it's drawn like shota, but it's not shota, so it's kinda disappointing ;)

Also, if you like boobs and panty shots and teenage boy fantasies, you might wanna watch Koikoi7. Actually that one was pretty funny, I watched it all the way through. This kid is like, enrolled in a sk00l that happens to be an all-girls sch00l. And on top of that, the girls have these factions and they fight with giant robots and magic powers and stuff. It was well funny tbqh, just, I found a better girls-with-superpowers show.

Actually I'm going to start this screencap fest with an older show, was out about the time I discovered FMA which esplains why I didn't pay it any mind. It's new out in NA, though, so I guess technically it's new... but you may have seen it already! This is my favorite show, really...

Cromartie High School



Here's the main character, Kamiyama. He accidentally enrolled in Cromartie High Sch00l because he was going to enroll with his buddy from jr high, who wasn't very bright but who loved to pursue academics. So they were going to enroll in the badass/dumbass sk00l together so he could help his friend study. But sadly, his friend did not pass the entrance exams. So here's good-kid non-badass Kamiyama, stuck in a class full of thugs!


Kamiyama's best buddy, Hayashida. He is more dumber than a ape, which you will see later. (Wait, HE is? What about that sentence I just typed? How is that smrt?)


So, Kamiyama and Hayashida are on the search for the baddest d00ds in 1st year. In their quest, they visit the other classes and come across this guy. He doesn't speak, so Kamiyama names him Freddie. It's because he is Freddie Mercury, innit?


They go into another classroom and find this gorilla. There's a gorilla in hisk00l. Man, I wish I'd have gone to Cromartie!


The freakiest of all the 1nens they find is this guy. Mechazawa. Nobody else in this sk00l or in the rival sk00ls seems to notice that Mechazawa is a robot. Kamiyama and Hayashida keep hoping someone will ask Mechazawa about his robotness, but no one ever does.


Here he is again, Mechazawa. Right when Kamiyama and Hayashida think that a guy is about to say "Mechazawa, are you a robot?" the guy instead is like "Mechazawa... your middle button is missing."


This is Maeda. He is another friend of Kamiyama's. Kamiyama and his buddies always go to Maeda's house for everything, from strategic planning meetings to birthday celebrations. This is starting to piss Maeda off, because he never has a say in it.


A rival school of badasses has this guy for their leader, Yamaguchi. His secret passion is comedy, and he sends in jokes on postcards to late-nite radio shows under a pen name. He is second rated on the late-nite shows for jokes, behind someone with the pen-name 'Honeyboy'. Honeyboy turns out to be Kamiyama.


This guy is the baddest of the bad at Cromartie. His name is Takenouchi. His secret problem is that he gets motion sickness, yet somehow he manages to end up in obnoxiously long trips with many curves and bumps, especially if Kamiyama is somehow involved.


This guy is rich-boy Hokuto. His father is on the board of directors for several high sch00ls, and he uses that power to take over the sk00ls for his own purposes. He enrolled at Cromartie with this goal in mind, but only after showing up (and in the wrong uniform!) did he realize that Cromartie is a public sk00l and his father has no influence over it! So to cover up his massive blunder, he tells a pack of lies that just keeps getting thicker and more obnoxious... for him. And what's worse, the dumbasses at Cromartie believe it! Kamiyama isn't quite so bright as he thought he was...


Here's Freddie again. Lickin a lollipop.


Everybody's favorite show is Poo-tan. This here is Poo-tan (the bear-thing) and his buddy. Yamaguchi thinks this show is pure crap and it inspires him to want to make a comedy duo with Honeyboy so they can put GOOD comedy on tv. But when he finds out that Kamiyama also luvs Poo-tan, he sets out to find the secret behind it's success.


Ugh that was a terrible description of that show! I love it, though. It's the funniest show I've seen in years.

Now, on to the new stuff!! Here's my new guilty pleasure...
Gokujou Seitokai


OK this show is weird... but I can't stop watching it ¬¬ It's about this girl, Lino. She carries this puppet-thing with her everywhere, and it turns out the puppet-thing has a mind of it's own and she can weild superpowers with it...


So, the story goes like this. Lino is trying to find her new school, and it turns out that within the sk00l is a secret organization of girls with superpowers. This one here, she's like the leader.


She's the one who I think has playing-card superpowers. Kinda like The Paper in Read or Die, but different. She's pretty cool, and she has the haircut I THOUGHT I was getting earlier in the day...


I dunno who she is. There are a lot of characters and I've only seen the one episode... so you know, I'm not all there yet. But the OP has these nice intro piccys, so I'm sharing them.


Dunno what she does, either. I suck.


This girl spent the whole episode going "Megane megane megane..." like Velma on Scooby-Doo. Because Lino was running and bumped into her and accidentally knocked 'em off her face and broke 'em. But she was in a hurry (Lino was) trying to catch the arsonist so she couldn't stay and help find the megane.


I forgot who she is.


OK this here is Izumi. Izumi is not at all keen on the new girl (being Lino). WHen she first meets her, she slaps the puppet out of Lino's hand. She was not happy when Lino saved the day (like you knew she would!) at the end of the episode.


She pretty much did this here. I forgot what else she might have done.


OK this is Cyndi. Cyndi is cool, and she drives a car w00... umm... she always looks like she's really really bored, even when she's very excited to see that Lino saved teh day. Also, she looks A LOT like Marui Bunta from Prince of Tennis.


I dunno who she is


I dunno who she is, either.


This is Aya. She and Lino hit it off well on Lino's first day of sk00l and it's pretty obvious they are going to be best friends. I don't think Aya has a superpower.


I dunno who she is.


I dunno who she is, either. And really, I shouldn't like this show at all. But I do. I can't esplain it. I have no excuse.


Ok that was a better intro...

Ooooh, some boiluv!
Loveless


This is in the OP for this show. It's about the Nekomimi kid Ritsuka, played by my absolute favorite actress in the whole world, Minagawa Junko. Bondage shota? I'm there ;)


Everybody in his class are nekomimi folk. I don't get that, but it's pretty cute. I bleev he is in the 6th grade. He's new to this sk00l and this girl in his class luvs him. He doesn't give her the time of day.


This is Soubi. Here's what I think the setup to the plot is: Ritsuka's brother died and tha's why he's at a new sk00l. After he leaves from nekomimi sk00l that day (even the teachers were nekomimi) Soubi is waiting for him and he tells him he was a friend of his brother's. OK it may not have been his brother but that was the implication I got and you know I'm not fluent in Japanese like, at all evar.


So Ritsuka is like, willing to listen to him because he said he was a friend of his brother's, and Soubi is like, explaining stuff about... well it has to do with some kind of battling with magic powers and he's telling Ritsuka about stuff about his brother and then Soubi is like, "I wub j00 Ritsuka!" and he kisses him, and then he esplains that it's not for luv he's kissin but it has to do with the magic powers, and then this other duo shows up and Soubi is like, "I will protect j00 nekomimi shotacon Ritsuka!" and he does, and he sends the other people (they were like teenagers) to some other place but Ritsuka is like, uber confused, but he likes Soubi, but he's beginning to wonder if Soubi really *was* a friend of his brother's...


Here's a promo pic from the official site. Oh and I forgot to mention that Soubi says he is "Beloved" or maybe he said that Ritsuka's brother was 'Beloved' but Soubi has 'Beloved' carved into his flesh sorta or maybe it's a tattoo anyway, on his neck like a necklace. The attackers that showed up, they referred to Ritsuka as 'Loveless'. Some kind of demons and angels sort of thing.


OK that was actually a decent intro.

And now, the one I've been waiting for!! W00t yey!! So far my new favorite show!!
Eyeshield 21


Here's the main character, Sena. He just started hisk00l. I think. Yeah I haven't read the manga so do not spoil me please... anyway, this is Sena, he's the running back for the team which is called the Devil Bats. HOW GREAT A TEAM NAME IS THAT!!! I have a movie called Devil Bat. It stars Bela Lugosi iirc. I already luv this show :D


These are some jerks who decide to hassle Sena and they first corner him in the AmeFuto clubhouse and they're about to beat him up or something. I do not know why they want to do this.


The beating is interrupted before it can begin by this big guy, who I'm not sure what his name is but my limited knowledge of name-kanji leads me to believe that it might possibly perhaps be Kuwata. Or it could be something else. So don't quote me on that. I'll listen better next time. This is the haircut I received, and I'm not happy about it. For real. Anyway, he's like a linebacker or something (I dunno from football!) and also a really nice guy. He talks Sena into joining the amefuto club by explaining that he doesn't just have to be a player he could do other things as well (because Sena was like "..." about playing football)


This is, I think, Hiruma. He's the quarterback and he is, I think, the captain of the club. He sees Sena escape from the jerks later in the show and realizes that Sena has the natural ability to be a awesome running back. So he ties him up and takes him back to the clubhouse where the big guy is waiting with tea and they are like "J00! BE RUNNING BACK!" and they give him the code name EYESHIELD 21. Also, Hiruma is fucking insane. Devil bat? I think so ;)


So those jerks, remember, who permeated the show with their jerkness? This is a prank played on them by Hiruma. It's a damn good prank :D


I luv that show. But I don't have more screencaps of it because I dunno really enough to say what deserves screencappin. Also, I haven't read the manga so like, do not spoil me with spoilers. You can spoil me with spoilers on the other shows, though. But not this one!! It's the new yey :D I've been waiting for it ever since I saw the ads for it. Sena reminds me a bit of Hikaru from Hikaru no Go, personality-wise, but doesn't he look kinda like that kid from Digimon?

Incidentally, if anyone has any corrections to anything I've said here, feel free to tell me. I'm not vain, I'm st00pit.
I'm not insanedrop trou!

Hoorah, you live! Roar, I must make a note to see all these. ... Are you watching all of them as raws? I could find Loveless 1, but that's it.

Yeah, I got them all as raws. I like raws, because there is NO WAY to cheat! Of course, that means I don't know what's going on half the time, but that just makes it more intriguing for me ;)

Hmm, thanks for the Loveless rec. Just watched it (subbed, since I am teh wimp :P), and blurbed about it over in me journal.

Interesting logic you have there. XD; Like I said, I am a huge wimp and have trouble keeping up with what's going on even with the exposition right in front of my face. Ehehe. ... Oh, and in case I haven't mentioned it, I love your icon. *always ends up staring at it for a minute or so*

THanks :D and I LOL at your icon... I wish I'd thought to make one like that ;)

Yeah I dont' always know what's going on even in English, either, but as long as I have a sense of the overall main plot I@m usually OK ^^;

About the nekomimi stuff: In Loveless, everyone has cat ears until they lose ther virginity. (Don't know about their tails, though. It would be kinky if they kept them.)
