Happy New Year! + Sometimes Neo makes me sad…

January 1, 2010

First off, Happy New Year. I’ve never made a fuss about it, seems like an overblown holiday which ends up being pretty lame anyways lol. It’s probly my families fault, we’re not the most social, and never went to any New Years parties or such like.

I know, its a xmas pic, but its cute, and Rozen Maiden-related. So there.

Onto the more pressing matter. Of that sometimes Neo makes me sad…. I got the new issue(its a magazine if you don’t know, which you probably don’t lol) this morning, 67, and its the 2010 preview issue. And the preview for next years anime releases in the UK…. its sad…. because we’re sooooooooooo far behind everywhere else it seems…. for instance, Naruto Shippuden, only just getting released. We haven’t even got Ponyo yet…. And I cudda sworn Rozen Maiden had already been released here, but NO. Just the manga. The anime is being released this coming March. The anime version of Romeo n Juliet too, February. Code Geass R2 aswell. We only got the first season last year… same for Gurren Lagann. We’re so far behind! Its bloody depressing living here sometimes. Its the same with games…. :sigh: No wonder so many are drawn to the bad side….downloading n’ wotnot…

Who actually buys anime DVD’s?

Ahhh Nagi, Kannagi is one of the series I most want on DVD, but it has yet to be released.

I read Neo’s big fansub article in the new issue, 61, and felt compelled to write something, cos I do download fansubs, yes its illegal, but I, unlike alot of people, buy the series when they’re out. And I only watch anime I know I like, I don’t go downloading everything under the sun, that would be a complete waste of time.

In the past year, less actually, I’ve bought more anime than I ever have before. Online, at conventions, in stores. I like to think I do my part for the anime market. And this is mainly thanks to being able to watch and test out anime using fansubs. Anime like Clannad, Ouran High Host Club, Onegai Twins, Kanon, all anime I bought because of the fansubs I watched. Some series I buy just cos I know I’ll like them, To Heart, Midori Days, I hadn’t seen them before, maybe one episode of Midori Days on a anime preview disc from Newtype or something. Other stuff I bought when I saw it cheap, like Bleach, and, god forbid Naruto…(just tried the first part of the first season, didn’t get through the first disc… Bleach was better, have the first season of that. There are also occasions when I rented anime from the library. Did that with Elfin Lied and few others. Tsukihime I got because I had the first volume in a big-multipack of anime and loved it, mostly volume 1’s in the set.

Magazines + Yummies

Went out earlier for milk and Jamaican Ginger Cake(very specific brand lol, otherwise it just ain’t the same.) and since my friend had mentioned magazines, I thought I’d go on the hunt for something I’d like too. There was Total Film, which she had got, she usually goes for Empire though, but they didn’t have it. As you can see, I ended up with 2. SFX, due to the Lost, Supernatural, Dr Who and major geek contents, and DVD Monthly, from october lol, but I always check through before I buy(as most people do I assume) and there was a variety of stuff that caught my eye.
