Hibiki here. I was part of Seifuku, but was diagnosed with Lazy-Ass Syndrome and seemingly died from it. I’m cured. So here I am. I lost my right arm and left leg fighting the disease, and then built myself metal replacements. But then I realized that was just my imagination. Too much FMA, I guess. Oh crap. I forgot the new FMA’s airing this season. >.>
Anyways, Intro Time! *cue random anime OP*
So, humble beginnings. I used to watch quite a bit of Anime back in the Philippines when I was young, (Saint Seiya, to be specific). Though at the time I was more of a tokusatsu fan. HUGE Power Rangers fan, to be specific once again.
I went through the whole Dragonball Z, Beyblade, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Digimon phases, but really, I kept thinking, there’s gotta be more to it than that. Of course, I’ve been exposed to more exciting stuff, the famous ones, Eva, Death note, FMA, Macross, etc. and as of a couple years ago, have been keeping up to date with the seasons.
But. The one thing that jumped out at me most was Gundam. (Youch. That’d hurt if my buddy RX-78-2 Gundam would literally jump out at me >.>). I’m one of the people who started with the Wing series, but I’ve got a HUGE appreciation for all of the series. Ever since I’ve been absorbing more and more info. I liked SEED and SEED Destiny, thought 00 was pretty well done (side note, enjoyed Code Geass as well, albeit was a little disappointed at the 2nd season, much like Destiny and, more recently, 00. TTGL was a wicked watch too). For those interested, I’m writing a continuation of SEED called Exodus, but I’ll save that for another day. So yeah, I’m the mecha guy, and that means pretty much expect me to blog any Mecha anime. (For sure next year, I’ll be blogging the Gundam 00 Movie)
From the time I uhm… disappeared from Seifuku up until now, I was relatively busy with some real life stuff. If anything, I was watching only Gundam 00, reading only Naruto, FMA and D.Gray-man, and more tokusatsu. Kamen Rider Decade and Shinkenger, pretty much. Absolutely loved Go-Onger last year (I love you, Rina Aizawa! xD). I had so much fun watching it. Gooo On!!! Lately, I haven’t been watching much, sadly. I know I missed some nice shows, but I’ll backtrack probably in the summer. The only ones I paid attention two that are non-Gundam were Index and Kannagi. Loved both!
So this season, I’ve got a couple series that perked my interest. Expect most of my posts to be cumulative in the weekends, but I’ll see how my schedule can fit in. Tentatively, expect me to blog:
(green is pretty much for sure, orange is a possible drop, or awaiting confirmation. God, I made this sound so complicated. xP)
Fullmetal Alchemist (taken from Seinime, I guess. I love FMA.)
Shangri-La (I’m hesitant to try another Gonzo anime since it took a while for Linebarrels to sink in for me and Dragonaut felt like a disaster)
Eden of the East (unique, I think I’m gonna like this one)
Sengoku BASARA (This sounds interesting. Based on a Capcom Samurai game)
Tears to Tiara (A fantasy anime, looks like it’ll turn out like a bit of a harem anime)
07-Ghost (I’ve been waiting for this. So excited!)
Queen’s Blade (…what are you looking at me for? I’m joooooooking about this one.)
And that’s it for now. If I missed anything I’ll be sure to let you all know.
