Hitman Reborn! 97

Hardly anything new, it was just a recap episode narrated by Gokudera. I have to say, with these long-running shonen anime, watching them episode by episode is really never as fun as just racing through them. Reborn! Really doesn’t need a recap episode to crush its momentum, not that it was fast paced before or anything. Hopefully next week they’ll be some action.

Gurren Lagann Review

Gurren Lagann Main Cast
Gurren Lagann Main Cast

Yay! I finished Gurren Lagann, finally. I’m so happy that I actually got through it because during the earlier episodes I was considering dropping it because I hated Kamina so much. He was just so annoying and always shouting and, personally, just too cliche. Gawd. The whole beginning bit (pre -time-skip) just didn’t work out for me, I couldn’t tell what was going on in the fight scenes, and it all seemed too large for life, the only thing that actually kept me watching it was the immense popularity, and the eye-catches.

Just when I had lost all faith in TTGL, the time-skip appeared and all of a sudden everything made so much more sense. I began to understand the fight scenes more and I preferred most of the character designs. The best part about it was the lack of Kamina! To me, the most shocking thing was how touched I was in the final few episodes, I never expected to get so emotionally attached to this anime, and now I’m so happy that I didn’t drop it or put off watching it.

Hitman Reborn! 96

Photobucket

Well, I never thought that I’d watch Reborn! Again, but thanks to Zano Fansubs, I found episode 96. The one problem with long-running ongoing anime is that the episodes are slow, but this was actually a rather enjoyable episode, it was well worth the wait. Also, I don’t know why, but my screen capture software isn’t working properly for some reason, so I’m gonna wait till I fix it before I add any screen caps.. sorry for the delay =(

I’m always quite excited for Autumn/Fall anime, epsecially since Summers season was so bleak. I don’t know if I like the look of all the upcoming anime, but I’m sure that it’ll be better than Summers ones.

No more Hitman Reborn?!

Photobucket

For some time now, I’ve been saying that Reborn! Needs to be licensed because its not getting the recognition it deserves and blah blah blah. I can’t believe that FUNimation would actually send ‘cease and desist letters to the subbers’. I would actually buy the dubbed DVDs – but how long is it gonna be until they get up to episode 96?

I’m so angry right now… I’ll write something more coherent later on =(

Blogging Style

My Hitman Reborn! Post took ages to write, because I haven’t got the best memory ever and I ended up watching it three times, and I’m not to keen on spending that much time per post per episode. In fact I’ve already watched Hitman Reborn! 95, but due to it being not the most memorable episode, I forgot what happens, and I’m not that keen on watching it three or more times. I know that with me going on like this it makes more sense just to give up and quit now, but NO! I’m gonna see how I do with playing around with other blogging styles until I find one that is the most comfortable to me.
