As I'm fairly quick to get obsessed I've got myself a shiny new obsession. ^^ Namely, Gintama
. I'm pretty surprised myself that I came to like it so much. Before whenever I'd tried to watch it - even though I used to quite like it - I had been only able to watch 2-3 episodes and then I had to make a loooong break, because it was simply tiring. In two years' (or something like that)
span I could stomach only 10 episodes.
And now? During Ecchicon 4 I went on Gintama
panel where they showed three of later episodes. I decided to return to watching it - this thought was one of many things I told my brother when I came home and he said he wants to watch it as well.
We watch at least two (but usually more) episodes a day and it's so great <3 I often find myself grinning at the mere thought of it and I just can't wait for every evening~ Sure, the humour is not too intellectual ;) but I sometimes laugh so hard at the antics of Gin-chan&CO. that I'm surprised mom hasn't yet scolded us for being so noisy at such late hours. And I'm in love with all those references (the ones I'm able to catch anyway) - One Piece's been already mentioned twice. <3 XDD
The characters also are GREAT and each one of them has their own unique quirks and traits that's making me just love them more and more with every episode. For example - Kondou. Until yesterday I just liked him like every other character, but didn't really care more about him. But after the 30th episode I can't not love him. XD Or Yamazaki - I almost can understand why he came the 4th in the character popularity poll even though he's a minor character at best. XD
It seems it's one of the series that I'm simply not able to enjoy when I watch it by myself. Or maybe I wasn't in the right mood for a series like that before.
Also, I'm in love in shinsengumi now. XD
I wish I could tell it has absolutely nothing to do with fact that Hijika's got Nakai's voice, but I'm afraid I'd be lying not only to you but myself as well
They're all just epic xDD Anyway, I already tried to find some info on them on the net, but there's not much - which surprised me a little. (But not as much as that the book about Japan's history that I'm keeping way too long didn't mention them at all
. Maybe I just didn't search diligently enough, but I sincerely doubt it)
Btw, estimated time needed for Sessho to tell that it's Suwabe's voice = time needed for saying one line. xD
I started watching One Outs
- and I think it's one of better series that are airing right now. It's an really exciting series. A mix of gambling and baseball? Snarky, cunning and insolent main chara (Tokuchi's his name)? Count me in. I swear one day I'll learn baseball rules thanks to all those anime. XD And the charadesign and the animation are more then good as well. And I really fancy the opening as well.
Though I wish they showed some character development. As great and gripping are all the challenges that Tokuchi has to face, I wish we were shown some of his past - just how exactly he came to be the way he's now, what his motivation is - does he have any aside from drawing the pleasure from gambling. And it wouldn't hurt if the others characters (especially the catcher Ideguchi and the clean-up batter Kojima) got some more screen time - outside the baseball field, please. But I'm not going to complain too much, because I'm enjoying this series tremendously anyway. ^^
And meh wants some Tokuchi/Ideguchi
Thanks to tsunami_pl
's entry I checked out this - grrm
and then this
. Now, I want to go to library and check if they don't have Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of Wind
(which they most probably don't). And to beg them into buying Shinsengumi: The Shogun's Last Samurai Corps
by Romulus Hillsborough especially for me while I'm at it. And to find out whether they bought that ASoIaF's next parts or not.
But I'm not going to, because I should have Pan Tadeusz
finished long time ago and be in the middle of reading Nad Niemnem
, when the actual state is: the middle of Mickiewicz's epic.
And I'd really like to read King's The Stand
- when mom finishes it, that is. And those two books by Murakami that I borrowed. ;;
Also, if it's about Shinsengumi - am I wrong or is there in fact only one book about them that's published in Poland? But I guess it wouldn't be too surprising.
That aside, it's a little amazing - to be able to read something that close to a blog of the author whose works you love - how you start to see them not as some distant author, but as a human being as well. ^^
As for school two next weeks are going to be pretty hectic, but it's not like it's something new or special. I'm not happy at the thought of having a test from whole
romanticism, though. My notes from the last month take around 20 pages or something and it's probably not even the half of it.
And somewhere in the up-coming weeks we're going to play the volleyball regional finals. (We lost our last match - and lost really bad - but we needed to win only one set, so here we are)
Dad bought a new computer for himself. As for myself I'm more and more tempted to try to get a driving license for my 18-th birthday, since a computer - I'll get it anyway when I'll be going on the university. ;)
Also, I'll probably do an OTP meme that Tsu did. But first I have to determine my OTPs xD and when I'm done with it - to come up with some riddles. xD
I need to find some host for my pretty banner from fiendie and finally make this entry, too. Any useful suggestions? And I want to close some entries as well.
Already done it. The whole entry doesn't look as nice as I wish it would, but it can't be helped. Anyway, look and admire my banner from Sal
. And here as well~
