Last night I read Love Hina volume 1 again. Sadly online, because nearly all my manga’s at home. Apart from volume 3 of Cat Paradise I think lol. But yeah, Love Hina…
My manga’s always sitting there in my room, gathering dust. I havent’t read any of my own manga in AGES, borrowed Bichi off a friend recently, but thats about it. I’m WAY behind on any anime too. It’s shameful. Got way too wrapped up in B1A4 & their paper idol image stuff(before they debuted they released a manhwa webcomic, which was enough to make me love em from the get go XD). Also Doctor Who, and London and movies, and right now Pottermore.
A few days ago I thought to myself, ‘I should read Love Hina again’ just because it caught my eye as I turned round, and because it was a brilliant series, classic in todays terms I should imagine. And it may give me inspiration for what I’m currently doing ;3 (Probably not what you’re thinking lol). But yeah, Love Hina. I’m gonna re-read it, and after each volume, post about what I thought, about how it may or may not have aged. Ken Akamatsu’s style seems to be pretty consistant at least, going by Negima. Granted I’m only on…volume… 17? 18? I own 16 volumes though XD.
So. Yeah. Love Hina. I remember reading the blurb on the back about it being a ‘teen sex comedy’ I think XD. It may have some similarities with movies like American Pie, but not crazily close ones lol.
And the good thing bout manga, takes bout half an hour to read usually, sometimes less. Tis usually why I brought more than one with me to school when I did, because one was never enough and I ended up re-reading XD.
Expect the first post forthwith. And I am sorry for the *counts* 4 month hiatus o___o I missed bloggies 3rd birthday, and it hitting 250k hits too I think. It’s on 274k now XD… makes me feel bad… I’d blame Twitter and Tumblr and forums, but thats not right, been doing other stuff too. And it’s probably mostly down to laziness… Sorry…
Image as (almost) always, came from oreno.imouto, which I still search for as moe.imouto lol.
(Ooooo side thought… live action Love Hina drama XD I can’t imagine it happening, Ouran yes, (thank god) but Love Hina… content wise XD not so much.)
I’ll start off by saying, my little brother picked this. He likes guns, loli’s and action. All of which Hidan no Aria has, wrapped up in neat little not-to-fanservicey package. Which is also great, because he’s only 13 XD I don’t want him exposed to the kind of thing I was at the same age. I’d already read Chobits by his age. And was working my way through Love Hina & other stuff. I know the Tokyopop age rating was only a rough guide, but they were selling me Chobits when I was 12, & it was marked 16+ XD. I was tall for my age though… STILL. My little broseph can wait. He’s seen anime based on eroge/VN’s as it is lol. Non-ecchi ones though :3
Also, he loves Shakugan no Shana, even bought the DVD boxset(go him!!). So we both noticed the similarity to Shakugan no Shana lol. It’s basically the same thing, only Aria has guns+swords instead of magic+swords XD. (He also loves 24, so lots of guns/violence/chases etc, he loves it XD) We checked afterwards for voice actors and both lol’d at the fact Shana’s seiyuu is voicing Aria XD.
It’s those eyes. The blue with green. It’s not that common to do that with (optical)eyes. And I LOVE Feng’s artwork. It’s too cute. Theres that figure in the polkadot bikini I still want. I think I like Ui because facially they’re quite similar, hair colour isn’t dissimilar too. And both have a cute hair decoration. So yeah, I’ve fell for the main chara in just the first ep XD, the ditzy, stereotypically moe girl, so what? They’re meant to be appealing!! I don’t mind moe, I get that theres been WAY too much of it recently, but it honestly doesn’t bother me lol, I simply don’t want much of the moe-driven anime. But when certain character designs attract my attention, I give them a chance at least.
With the release of Big Bang‘s comeback and newest mini album I’ve become a little… enthusiastic you might say. I completely love this new album of theirs, tis weird, because I don’t think I thought much of a lot of their discography before… but now I’m working my way steadily through the 400-odd MB’s I had on my exHD.
The cover of the mini album, Tonight. Very purdy. I wants. But shall wait. Too many Kpop albums I want haha. If the UK made CD’s this pretty and released them with posters and limited edition card things, I might actually buy more music. BUT they don’t. So its their loss really ;P
