I have heard about Nanoha alot. I knew there were loads of figures. I knew it was a magical girl series. And that it looked cute. But I’d never really felt that fussed about watching it. BUT after finally watching Code Geass, I felt I should look into some fan-favourites that I had passed up before. This being one of ’em. And I confess… I’m already being tempted by the figma’s….. It might just be because of the staffs that come with them though… So cool… and tiny… Hauuuu….
I’m on episode *thinks* 4 I think. I’ve wanted to get like 2 eps a night watched, but I think sleep has been more tempting lol. And now Uni is pretty much finished I can get more watched, stay up stupidly late and sleep in stupidly late lol. I plan to get at least 5 and 6 watched tonight. Maybe even 7… its only 13 long though…. I’ve gotten used to 24 eps lol. Though Rideback was only 12.
I haven’t watched a proper magical girl series in YONKS. I mean proper magical girl series, like CCS, with staffs and cute little critters and transformations to boot. (Love the transformation sequence in MSLN, so pretty. Really nice animation.) I’d forgotten why I liked them lol, I had to force myself to sit down and watch Nanoha. I should do that when I continue Shugo Chara too… otherwise I’ll just stop it again…
I love the bit the staff is built around the raging heart(Raising Heart? In the sub I have its Raging, but on ANN its listed as Raising….) jewel. Kirei.
Nanoha’s charm is very endearing. I’m waiting to see how Fate has become more popular frankly…. cos Nanoha’s kind of moe seems hard to beat… Got no clue about Hayate. But she’s in Saimoe too, so I’m guessing she’s moe enough. Anyways, I’m definately gonna stick with it, unless I get mindnummingly bored by it lol. I hope I don’t. It’s giving back my taste for Mahou Shoujo series, which means more dling lol.
When I first heard Nanoha talk I was like, ‘OMG RIKA-CHAN!’ Always disturbing to hear Higurashi girls in other roles for me lol. Though this was first lol. And when I heard Fate I knew I recognised her voice too… I’m good at recognising the voices, but I haven’t got all the names down yet… Anyways, Nana Mizuki, Fate, she’s in 2 series that are ending this season, Rideback(LOVE) and White Album. Both characters have very similar names… Rin Ogata and Rina Ogata. Weird coincidence? lol. Must be. She was also Shinobu in Ninja Nonsense(mental series… lol) and the only character in Naruto that I didn’t hate lol, Hinata Hyuuga. As for Nanoha’s seiyuu Yukari Tamura, I knew she was Rika Furude in Higurashi, what I didn’t know is she was Mei Sunohara in Clannad! And a whole bunch of other characters in anime I’ve seen lol. Like Mai in Kanon. And Michiru(who I don’t really remember lol) in Air.
Righto… now me thinks I’ll attempt to install some stuff or play some games… or just idle on the net lol. Or maybe watch some more Nanoha! lol. There really is nothing on tv tonight… Not even any decent repeats.
