Mid-April Anime Watching

2009 April 13


My time with Sketchbook has come to an end; it joins Azumanga Daioh and Hidamari Sketch as one of my all-time favorite anime, perhaps further driving into the ground the fact that I might be enjoying the slice-of-life genre a bit too much.

In the meantime, I’m ramping up my anime watching. Like the above picture, Sketchbook handed the baton over to ARIA the Natural. Alongside that in my Queue of Old Stuff™ is Ookiku Furikabutte, with some Shugo Chara! on the side, and Uchuu no Stellvia, in a joint watch-o-rama with Amol.

I’ve also taken to sampling a handful of things from this season. K-ON! continues to be good. The new Fullmetal Alchemist feels quite like its predecessor, and perhaps has the best eyecatch (earcatch?) of the season. I’m going to sample Saki and East of Eden by the end of the week. And, finally, to top things off, I’ve got an Abridged Script for Ristorante Paradiso episode 1 that goes something along the lines of this:


NICOLETTA walks in and has a fine supper with her mother and father-in-law. She notes the presence of SEVERAL HOMOSEXUAL ITALIAN MEN. She also notes that every woman in the restaurant that isn’t HER nor HER MOTHER are fawning over said HOMOSEXUALS.

What is up with all of these women blushing? Geez.

One of the HOMOSEXUAL MEN pours cheap wine into NICOLETTA’S GLASS. NICOLETTA ends up BLUSHING.
