Aku no Hana

It has been a while I got this excited for an anime. In fact, I can't remember the last anime that got me all worked out like this. Needless to say, I think Aku no Hana is a very awesome anime. I definitely recommended it to everyone.

A Year Older: Again

It’s that day when I got another level up in life. I’m turning a year older again today. So many things have changed in a course of a year. I read what I wrote on my birthday last year and I almost choked with laughter at how ridiculous everything sounds.

Goodbye 2012 and Hallo 2013

So overall, year 2012 has indeed been kinder to me. I have achieved what I set out to achieve but most importantly, I unexpectedly found love which is easily the highlight of the year for me.

Light Writings: Love II

I need an outlet to express how I feel nowadays. To be honest, things are going too good for me at the moment to the point that I am sort of living in fear for I do not want these extremely good feelings, and the love I have for him to end. If all these are gone tomorrow, there is a big probability that I might lose sanity.

Light Writings: Crush II

Welp, looks like we are having this conversation again after so many years. Well 2 years and 3 months to be exact. The last time I wrote about my crush, I was in a different state of mind where I know it can be nothing more than just that, a crush.

A closure

It is the last day of 2009.

What a year it has been. I was fairly depressed in the first half of the year. I discovered that the friends that I have were mostly superficial thus automatically made them assholes. I lived as a hikki during those time refusing any social real life interactions and basked myself with anime and manga and making friends on the interwebz that are far more awesome because we share the same passion and interest.

My relationship of course did not last. LOL I wonder if it will ever. But meh, after a day I did not care anymore so that itself speaks volume at how I cherished them. I am sorry but not really >3

The second half of the year was fucking awesome. I made new real life friends, get myself involved in a community which consequently got me a new more satisfying job.

I also started blogging again in July after almost a year abandoning this blog. I decided to make it an anime/manga related blog because obviously spazming about them is an everyday occurrence in my life. I met some awesome bloggers and it kinda opens my eyes at how big of a community I am part of. Stupid as it may be, it kinda fulfilling. I love reading them blogs especially of Glo's and Snark's. It is not like I don't like the others, but these two never ceased to amaze me with their wit and (questionable) intelligence. I also missed blur's Anime3r and is trying to accustom myself with NaNeee?! OEG has become the rage since they started at the end of October. I have had such a great laugh reading the entries and always wonder how I will fair if I'm included in the list (so far I am not; showed how insignificant this blog is LOL). I probably will get eliminated straight away but is still interested to find out why. It could be humiliating but meh zis is ze internet! If I care for such things I won't be writing this shit.

I also started to collect figures seriously. It left me broke for several months but it was worth it. They are still puny compared to the others I am sure but all in due time. I find myself more into nendoroids as compared to PVC. I have become the victim of consumerism but damn those GSC's nendo are fucking adorable! I will only be interested in PVC if it is of Bleach characters otherwise I won't even spare them a glance. Goes to show that I am not an otaku despite people saying that I am.

I find myself reading more manga than watching anime this year too. It was such a big difference compared to previous years. I never was a manga fan. I only read Bleach for several years because I love it. Then somewhere or something that I am not sure what triggered my obsession of reading manga and the list just keeps getting longer as the year 2009 comes to a close. Maybe it has something to do with the release of shitty anime but really who am I kidding. I have tons of anime in queue and bloody hell works really made me less of an anime tard nowadays :(

So my New Year resolution would be this: I wanted to complete at least 15 anime series in 2010 plus at least 5 series that I have put on hold since forever. I only managed to complete 16 anime (excluding 5 fall anime that I am currently watching) and 11 of it were OVAs and movies. 5 series was so little compared to last year where I finished a whopping 29 series! That did not include OVAs and movies.

Jeebus what have I been doing this year? Why the fuck did I let work get in the way?! Being an adult is such a chore -__-

Before anyone started bitching about me lying about being a hikki, here is the fact: I work from home. I write for a living. Except for the occasional meetings, it does not required me to step out of the house for me to earn my money. Fucking convenience eh? Righto, it is =3

This is me (fanart by s kengo)

And thus, goodbye 2009 and Happy New Year everyone.

Kara no Kyoukai 2: Satsujin Kousatsu (Part 1)

I am so glad that I chose to watch this again before I watch the 7th (and the last) movie of the series, which is Part 2 of the Satsujin Kousatsu.

Because I am a sucker for romance (not in shoujo though. I am referring to the unconventional love story) I freaking love the theme in this movie. This is the movie that made me realized that Kara no Kyoukai, ultimately, is a romance movie.

Satsujin Kousatsu is kinda a flashback when Mikiya and Shiki were still in high school. It is pretty telling that Mikiya fell in love with Shiki at first sight (April 1995), and the things that he was willing to do for her, and his influence on her as she was sculptured to be the Shiki we have known and love in Fukan Fuukei. For example, if it wasn't for his suggestion, we would probably never get to see her with her famous red leather jacket :)

love at first sight. aaahhhh @_@

Satsujin Kousatsu also shows that Shiki is a lady from a well-known/noble family, complete with bodyguard/butler and shit like that. The butler who believes that Shiki should be the one inheriting the Ryougi's household is loyal to her despite traditionally it would have been her brother that should be the head of the family one day.

If anyone has doubt about Mikiya and Shiki relationship, they even went on a date in this movie where Shiki told Mikiya of her split personalities: SHIKI and shiki. The usually cold one is shiki while the rebellious one is SHIKI. After that Shiki begun to isolate herself more and more except towards Mikiya. shiki told Mikiya that SHIKI can only feel rejection and lately she was in denial of shiki's existence. In one way, she kinda confessed to Mikiya that she was the murderer in order to ensure that SHIKI won't resurface.

Daisuke, a police officer who works on the murder cases, who is also Mikiya's uncle kind of confirmed what Shiki told him earlier. He also had a premonition of Shiki standing in front of a corpse with blood sprayed everywhere. Coincidentally, it became a reality and he saw it with his own four eyes.

How can I not want to marry someone like her =3

He was very confused and afraid for a while but it just made him more determined then ever. He then start to keep watch in front of Shiki's house without fail every night to perhaps stop Shiki from committing another murder, if she ever did. Even after Shiki totally ignored him at school. Now tell me if that ain't romantic :D

Kara no Kyoukai would not be Kara no Kyoukai without the gruesome murders and deaths. Shiki quickly became the suspect for those murders. It was too much of a coincidence anyway, whats with her double personalities etc.

At the end of this movie, something unexpected happened. Shiki wanted to murder Mikiya. I just love the expressions from both Mikiya and Shiki. The murderer and the victim. Absolute contrast. It was beautiful...

The panic stricken Mikiya

The calm and collected murderer Shiki

Damn, watching these always gave me freaking goosebumps. It is definitely one of my favorite scenes in this movie. The details was amazing. The rain, the bamboo trees, everything were so perfectly done. The way Mikiya submitted to his fate was so heart-touching in my opinion. Goes to show what a perfect gentleman he is.

The other favorite scene is when Mikiya waited the rain to stop with Shiki by his side and then he started humming a song.

He made me wants to have his babies *melts*

Anime of the decade

I know, everyone is making their list... So will I just to remind myself how satisfactory the decade has been in term of me being an animetard. Without further ado, here they are:

OVAs of the decade

Mnemosyne is one of the two OVA that got stuck in my head. The action and slight bloodfest made me a fan of it, not to mention the story that at first confuses me but gradually grows on me as the end gets near.

Detroit Metal City should be in everyone's list if they don't want to be fucked by Krauser. One of the most funneh anime ever made. This one is a fucking gem.

Movies of the decade

Spirited Away was the first movie of Hayao Miyazaki that I've seen and it totally blows me away. It made me a fan of Miyazaki so it deserved this spot here.

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo or popularly known as The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I watched it for the romance and lemme tell you that the romance was celestial.

Kara no Kyoukai. All seven of them. These movies have everything: bloodfest, romance, drama, suspense, horror, supernatural, action and more bloodfest. All the things that I like in one movie. Whats not to love?

Anime of the decade

duhh! This anime can cure AIDS! Don't believe me? Ask Glo. But seriously, Gintama is the funniest shit EVER! Didn't they said the best medicine there is is laughter? Well, it maybe for the poor and penniless but that is besides the point. The point is this anime r0xx0r so hard you would be addicted to it like you will to whatever drugs you are taking. Or caffeine because you know, drugs is bad for you. You don't want to be dead because of it otherwise you can't watch Gintama that can cure pretty much anything that you are suffering from, except the idiot symptom. That has no cure.

But why the fuck am I rambling. Just agree with me on this one.

And that's it. That concludes my anime of the decade list. Why only Gintama? I have already made a list of my top ten anime. Since we are talking about anime of the decade, none can rival Gintama.

Kara no Kyoukai 1: Fukan Fuukei

I was in a mood for review as I re-watched all seven movies of Kara no Kyoukai hence why this periodic post dedicated to the movie is up (I abandoned my Pandora Hearts marathon for this although in reality I was just looking for an excuse).

Kara no Kyoukai: Fukan Fuukei (Borderline of Emptiness: Overlooking View) is the first movie of this series. This is the movie that started my addiction to Kara no Kyoukai and makes me gay for Shiki and wants to marry Mikiya but you guys don't want to know that.

I remember that I have to download the movie more than 3 times. It was my first experience with *.mkv file and it was such a headache thinking where the fuck did the subtitle disappear to? I was such an inexperience n00b back then -_-"

Fukan Fuukei is about a bunch of girls who seemingly committed suicide by jumping of from an Fujyou Building without leaving any suicide note. In truth, they were all control by a single entity.

I didn't realize this before (what the hell, how can I missed it) but it kind of obvious from the get go that Shiki has feelings for Mikiya. Maybe when I first watched it, it did not occurred to me that this movie might have romance theme in it because I can only see (and in awe) with the bloodfest and the horror. We can read from Shiki's attitude when Mikiya was "out". She was obviously annoyed and irritated and was extremely worried about him.

wake up Mikiya!

She made the connection between Mikiya's condition and the suicides even when Touko said it wasn't related. Mikiya would be the 8th victims if Shiki did nothing to stop it. She even cut her own artifical arm in order to save him without giving it a second thought

Despite Touko's warning, Mikiya went to the Fojyou Building to investigate the suicide cases. The ghost (who was controlled by a girl at the hospital, the evil entity I was referring to) at that cursed place has Mikiya's soul with her and Mikiya's body ended up to be an empty vessel unless Shiki can do something about it. And that she will because she's very possessive and pretty much tell us that Mikiya belongs to her and her alone (again, how the fuck did I miss this blatant confession? O_0)

I am so glad that I re-watched this movie. I forgot about Touko telling Shiki how Mikiya ended up working for her. It was a romantic story of how he keep staring at one particular doll as Touko interviewed him.

The doll sitting there is Mikiya's favorite. Care to take a guess why? @_@

At the beginning of the movie, Shiki said that she doesn't like ice-cream and kinda make you wonder why Mikiya still bought the strawberry (because it reminds him of her (jacket)) ice-cream for her. This is why:

She ate the ice-cream. She hates it but she still consumed it. Guess who is missing Mikiya >3

Remember I mentioned about the evil entity? She had a crush on Mikiya when she saw him every week as he visited Shiki when she was in a coma. But of course I didn't knew this the first time around so it didn't registered. Now that I've seen all seven of the movies, it made perfect sense. The girl ended up killing herself which made her the 8th victims thus returning Mikiya's soul to its rightful owner.

The last few words exchanged between Mikiya and Shiki made me smile. I love the metaphors that Mikiya's used of explaining his "dream". That is so like him and damn he is so smooth. I would blush too if I was Shiki *giggles*

Oh yeah before I forgot. For those who were clueless as to why Shiki has the "eyes", well it allows her to see the points of death on her enemies so she could just stab them as what her eyes see.

The famous eyes

the points of death that I was talking about

The art is one of the thing that stands out the most. It is definitely one of the reason why I am so into this series. The details are incredible, they took everything into consideration. You can see this during the fights and at the surrounding backgrounds. To enhance the experience, they inserted sounds effect that would totally made you so into this movie and invoke your emotions.

I love the character designs too. For example, Mikiya is not really a bishounen nor does Shiki a bishoujo but their characters and personalities what made them real and so damn likeable. I guess part of the kudos have to be given to the seiyuus as well.

What a delectable movie this is.

Eve no Jikan the Movie

Yep, they are going to make it into a movie. It would basically be the original scenes from the 6 episodes with some new additional scenes as well. It is set to be released next Spring.

I'm pretty sure with some good editing it would be EPIC, since Eve no Jikan was epic to begin with. I thought they were going with season 2 whats with the lack of closure from the completion of the series but movie is definitely much better, ne?


I can't wait =3

Diary of a tard - week 4, December '09

Sunday, December 20

Picked another seinen: Gunmania, from the same mangaka who does Drifters. You can pretty much tell what was going on from the title alone. Bloodfest all around. To top that off Bando is fucking funneh. Yummy!

I greatly approved of his line of thoughts ^o^

Yay! Got 3 more episodes done for Pandora Hearts. Jeez I really failed at marathon -__-

Monday, December 21

Dogs: Bullet & Carnage chapter 48: remember that guy who conduct the orchestra and wanted to kill Badao? Well, he has finally starts blowing up his puppets which he had placed all over the city. During the chaos, Giovanni escaped. Heh, good move >3

I'm suddenly in a mood for Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. I am still amazed at the freaking details as I was back in 2001.

Tuesday, December 22

What the? Kuroshitsuji is taking the same path as Umineko no Naku Koro ni? The plot certainly looks familiar. Oh joy /sarcasm. Since Ciel is the only one without alibi, he becomes the prime suspect of George's murder. While Ciel is confined with Mr Woodsmith, Sebastian was about to get killed

Wednesday, December 23

I can only spend an hour to watch Bleach before resumed my work. Today will be an all nighter -__-

Thursday, December 24

Oh yeah, Karneval is back with a new chapter! The last chapter was out in October. Almost two months for chapter 17. Sucks. Anyway, Yogi, Gareki, Nai and Tsukumo are still looking for Yukkin in the blizzard while there are two enemies lurking around ready to kill them. In their effort to look for Yukkin, they stumbled upon hidden underground room so they left Tsukumo alone as they ventured into that place. Kagiri and Kiharu used the opportunity to finish off Tsukumo and blow the rest of them to bits.

Well what do you know, I picked up another manga: Are You Alice? Just what the hell is wrong with me?! :P

Yosh, two chapters of Yandere Kanojo! First Reina and Manabu goes to the firework festival and then in chapter 6, they introduced Reina's dad and he's freaking awesome @_@

Merry Christmas everyone.

I am happy to report that Sasgay does not have it easy with Danzo. He hasn't scratched that old shit at all but has tired himself out in Naruto chapter 477. He knows the sort of Danzo's mischief is in his right arm but so far his effort has been in vain. At the end of the chapter, Itachi appeared no doubt another jutsu from Sasgay. Although I missed Itachi, seeing him being used as a reason for a fight fucking pissed me off.

Have not touch any anime since Sunday. Jeebus. So I decided to spend my Christmas catching up on the anime as well as some Pandora Hearts.

So Natsu and Happy stole the S-Class job and dragged Lucy and eventually Gray in episode 11 of Fairy Tail. They went to Galuna Island to cure the curse of the purple moon. As they tried to figure out how, they came on Deliora, demon of disaster. Gray has some history with Deliora because of his teacher, Ur (yeah I'm gonna stick with the name in the manga and in the manga her name was Ur not Ul *facepalm*)

Lag met a new Bee, Moc Sullivan in episode 11 of Letter Bee. He does not share the same view as Lag or Gauche when it comes to letters. To him letter is just that, something that needs to be delivered while Lag and Gauche believes that letter carries the heart of it's sender. Both of them are right in my opinion. As for episode 12, Zazie and Lag (and the rest of the Letter Bee) have to be Santa to celebrate the Holy Night and we got to see Zazie's past a bit. It was pretty heart-warming for the holidays.


It was an action packed episode for To Aru Kagaku no Railgun. Misaka was amazing as she fought the AIM burst monster. Episode 12 would have been perfect if Kuroko did not spoil it with his yuri antics >_>

I was about to go to sleep when one of my friends from KK crew recommended me Yankee-kun to Megane-chan manga. There is no way I'm going to ignore her recommendation so I checked it out and is immediately interested. It is funneh~

Saturday, December 26

Okay... I was about to puke blood when I saw Kuroko is that two piece. WTF? Urgh To Aru Kagaku no Railgun episode 13 is made of filler. Even the appearance of Touma can't salvage it -__-

Bleach: Chapter 387

Grr this week chapter is very late. I have been waiting all day! But all is well because color spread y'all! fucking w00t!!

and BAM! Shinji's shikai! He fucking inverted the world!! *faps*

Aizen said he did not sense any aura from his shikai and before he knew it he was caught in Shinji's inverted world. It was supposed to fuck the sense of it's enemy but holy mother of fuck ain't we talking about Aizen here? I lol'd at Shinji's confident words because I know he is so going to get raped. Disappointed I may be but hell this is going to be made of fucking awesomesauce.

LOL see what did I tell ya? XD

*grins* that was definitely chuckles worthy. I am still smiling at the idiocy of it all because Kubo made the mistake of telling us that Ichigo will be the only one who can defeat Aizen *mumbles* that fucking bastard...

Just when I thought things will get more awesome, Kubo brought us back to Tousen's fight. Apparently the fucker ain't dead yet and is taken care of by Komamura and Shuuhei. LOLWUT?! *facepalm*

I got a feeling that Gin will be the one finishing him off X)

And muahahahahaha my wish was granted. Well, kinda, since it seems like Aizen was the one who took care of the shit. LOL I love this chapter.

But wait a minute! Holy shit guess who's coming to save the day now that Shinji was bloody and useless and no hope is left? Well whadda ya know, it's Super-Shinigami-Vaizard-Hollow Ichigo! Didn't I say I love this chapter?

Hahahaha hell yeah >=D

Are You Alice?

Another josei that I picked up recently. This manga pretty much is the alternate version of Alice in Wonderland with a little twist here and there. For example, this manga is full of bishie (one of the reason I picked it up in the first place).

I saw Are You Alice in mangafox a couple of months back but for some reason was not interested in it at that time. When onemanga released it, for whatever reason I feel intrigued to see what it is all about. Although the story might be similar to Alice in Wonderland, I am sure the mangaka (collaboration between Ninomiya Ai (author) and Katagiri Ikumi (artist)) might just promised something twisted that will entertain me. Probably.

Pfft who am I kidding. Of course it will. This manga falls under the josei category for a reason.

The reason is, they made it a all male-characters. Bishounens at that. So yeah, I'm pretty much where I want to be right now, blissfully ignorant of the real world ^o^

At first the story kinda confuses me. The protagonist is obviously a male but everyone keep referring him as Alice. Alice, obviously, is not a male's name, unless he's gay and Alice is not gay (sadly). The same goes for QUEEN of Heart when obviously he has an analog stick attached to his pair of balls but people keep referring him as a she. So what the heck? And if that ain't confusing enough, they put Alice (yes, THE Alice from Alice in Wonderland) besides the protagonist and she is evil! Yep, that is pretty much how fucked up and twisted this manga version of Alice in Wonderland is. People might hate it but I happened to like it. Definitely something different and in my book different is always good.

I can't remember the story of Alice in Wonderland to be honest but in this one, the Queen (shouldn't he be called KING instead?) of Hearts wants Alice to play the "kill-the-white-wabbit game" in order for him to keep the name Alice.

Alice may or may not turn out to be the real Alice. I guess I just have to continue reading to find out what happened next. After all, it is only three chapters so far.

Bleach: Episode 251

Before anything else, allow me say this about Kouga: he has the right to ran amok and killed all those bastards for having such a blind faith on the Gotei 13. Their justice as far as I can see is fucked up. The Central 46 is full with bunch of selfish bastards who has their own agenda. The old fuck Yamaji doesn't have a brain to begin with so why he is the Captain Commander kinda speak for itself that the Gotei 13 was/is full of a bunch of morons who blindedly follow his lead even if it is illogical and stupid as fuck.

Sure, Kouga sullied the name of the 6th Division and the Kuchiki clan but fuck that. Life ain't all about status and shit.


So what did they do when Kouga lost his ability to think straight and ran amok? Of course they would send more people to try and kill him. More like sacrificial lambs. I mean they already know the outcome so why don't they just sealed him right away? Or send his wife to talk to him...

Like I said, Gotei 13 was/is full of morons.

Stupid fucker #1

I always thought Muramasa was the one who edging him on to betray Soul Society so I was surprised when he kinda disapproved of Kouga killing innocent people. Damn, he reminds me of Ulquiorra, or at least the idea of Ulquiorra that I have imprinted in my mind ^_^

Apparently he's a masochist too :P

So Muramasa abandoned Kouga at the last minute otherwise Kouga would have killed the old fuck. Why Muramasa... WHY?! Oh right, because he couldn't hear the voice of ego-inflated Kouga at that time -__-.

Obviously Kouga was mad at him for that and the first thing he did when he was freed was to stabbed Muramasa with his broken zanpaktou. LOL at the irony.

Just as Kouga was about to kill Muramasa, guess who stepped in. None other than Byakuya himself. w00t!! I can't wait to find out what the relationship between these two is @_@

The omake makes me wonder where could the Kenseikan be on Genrei...

Kubo the Troll

Lately the Bleach fandom has been in an uproar at the ridiculous plotkai plot twist that Kubo has presented us with. Demented fly? check. Useless wolf? check. Even more useless animal? check.

Aye, Kubo who we knew loves big tities as much as he loves that ridiculous sunglasses has turned into a the world's most professional troll in manga fandom.

Will I continue being a Bleachtard though? Hmm... I am not blind as to deny that the plot as of late has been pretty weak. But that is because we keep comparing the Hueco Mundo arc + winter war arc with the Soul Society arc. Since I rarely did so, I think I'm a pretty good.

Make no mistake though that I am mad that he killed Ulquiorra and other bad characters in the series. Some, in my opinion, died too easily considering their ranking but meh bad people needs to die in shounen right? Right. If he would have kill at least one good characters (let say... the old fuck Yamaji) than I think the fans won't be too mad. If he does that, he might be able to save himself from getting his head decapitated.

So my answer to that question is... yes. I am a Bleachtard at heart and as long as I am aware, nothing can changed that. Except if he does an IchiHime. If he does that, I'll personally will kill him again and again and again, making sure he suffered more than he did the last time. Why? Because in Kubo's world...

My Top 10: Anime of 2009

Wow, another year has gone by. That was freaking fast.

Anyway, once again SC posted a linked about the top 10 anime of 2009 thanks to the poll at 2ch. When I saw the list, I did not facepalm. The list is kinda better than the Anime Rag's 10 ten anime list. Having said that, I still disagree at some of the choices.
  1. Bakemonogatari (1231)
  2. Darker Than Black: Gemini of Meteor (805)
  3. Saki (704)
  4. K-ON! (582)
  5. Higashi no Eden (525)
  6. To Aru Kagaku no Railgun (456)
  7. Kimi ni Todoke (428)
  8. Taisho Yakyu Musume (238)
  9. Natsume's Book of Friends (209)
  10. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (199)
Some of the anime listed above are in my 'on hold' list for a reason. And I really do have a problem that Bakemonogatari is at number 1. The show is the most over-rated show of 2009 is what I think. But of course to each is his/her own.

If I would choose top 10 anime of 2009 that have impressed me, it would be (in no particular order):

Shangri-la. I still has not finished this show but from what I have seen so far, it is definitely one of the better anime out there. The art quality is amazing and maybe that is why I'm so biased towards this show despite that it was produced by Gonzo (RIP).

fanart by 110 gou

This show made my cried. And the story is something different. It's original or maybe I just think so because I live in a place that will probably never experience an earth quake or volcano eruption. Thanks the merciful god. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 definitely deserved to be in anyone's top ten anime list (of 2009).

Anyone who is into shounen must have been pretty excited when they heard the news that they are re-doing Fullmetal Alchemist. This time around they promised to stick to the manga, and that they did and renamed it Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I approved of this greatly.

fanart by moha

Zoku Natsume Yuujincho is the second season of this awesome show. Those who have seen it will agree that this anime deserved a mention. So thank you 2ch for having that common sense.

Hatsukoi Limited is before the invasion of K-ON! Even though it has some moe moments in it, it still has more depth than K-ON! can ever dream to achieve. I am not a fan of shoujo but I rated this 9/10 in my review for a reason.

This one caught me by surprised. I didn't expect it to be so good. I didn't do the usual backgroud checking when I decided to download the episodes but boy I am so glad that I did. Like Shangri-La, the art captured my interest. Combined with a pretty decent story line, Sora wa Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai (or Munto for short) turned out to be one if it's kind in 2009.

fanart by tamico

Okay, I know what you were thinking. But hell, I loved it and I am biased as fuck. So The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya season 2 made it in my list. What a shock! Shuddup.

fanart by kancai local

Higashi no Eden, if I'm correct, must be in everyone's list too. It is because the show is amazing. Enough said.

fanart by robotfish

Kūchū Buranko or Trapeze is a no brainer. I am a fan of something different and Trapeze definitely bring that to the plate. The story is pretty solid too with a not-too-hidden message in every episodes. I like that. I like that a lot.

fanart by moca

Okay to be honest, this one is I'm not too sure of. Maybe it is because I'm doing a marathon of the show at the moment that it influenced my choices but so far, it isn't too shabby of a choice. Pandora Hearts is pretty entertaining in my opinion and that made it a decent show.

Wow... that was hard. After looking at the list of 2009 anime, there were not really that many good anime this year compared to last year. If I am to compile a list of last year's anime I could do so with one eye closed.

Like I said, those 10 are /my/ anime list. I would probably have included Taisho Yakyuu Musume or Higurashi no Naku Koro ni if I've seen it. But since I have not, I have to reserved my opinion although I'm pretty sure Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will easily be in my list if the first season what it was based upon.

God, I really hope 2010 would be a good year for anime production. 2009's are quite an abomination (I like to exaggerate >3).
