It's a good time to be Free!

Free! gets a season twooooooooooooooo!

Of course, I was there in the audience when they announced it at the seiyuu talk event, and being the big, blubbering idiot that I am, I had tears streaming down my face. .^^;;; I couldn't help it! And I probably wasn't the only one.

Anyway, I have something of a review of the event up on Tumblr, and it's totally recommended reading. ;P

Woo~ Fantastic new layout, courtesy of [info]cashew! Thanks for letting me use it! I absolutely love the background, and the way links look.
It's actually been over four years since I changed the layout on this thing. Heh.. I really loved the one I had before, so never felt the desire to change it, until this one was made. .^^
Now I kinda want to make a mood theme to go with it, which sounds like so much more fun than cleaning my apartment.

In other news, tomorrow is my last day of work before winter vacation starts. My annual winter trip this year will be to Ise Shrine in Mie prefecture, then a short jaunt down to Kobe (not for any particular reason, I assure you....), then over to Miyajima, to spend New Year's at Itsukushima Shrine, and New Year's Day hiking Mt. Misen. After that, I'll spend a couple days wandering around Hiroshima.

I realize, of course, that I still haven't posted my travel log or pictures from last year's Kyoto/Nara trip. .>_>

Last year I sent a postcard to my family every day or so during my trip, but they never said anything. I don't even know if they ever received them. So I don't think I'll bother this year. Of course, then they'll act like I'm some kind of asshole, as usual, when all I've done or haven't done is the same damn things they do or don't do.

Now, how should I do my mood theme...?

so music! such voice! wow!

Wow wow wow!

I am actually blown away at how perfect their voices sound together!! =D =D

I'm also torn, because I decided I wouldn't buy any of the duet CDs until they were all out, so I could buy them all together and get the free box and bromide. And I told myself I couldn't download the songs as they were released, because if I did I just know I'd lose all incentive to buy CDs. I can listen online, but no downloading! Which means I won't be able to put them on my iPod until they're all out. But... but they won't all be released until March 2014. .;__;

Must be strong!

Oh, also, they're totally wearing couples' rings. X3

..... Damn. I may as well make a Free! tag on here.

That is all.

Just watched the last episode of Free!.

And I am literally feeling so many conflicting emotions, all at the same time.

cut just in case of spoilers )

And that's without seeing it subtitled yet.
Now I'll go to bed and fume/weep/wibble into my pillow, and wake up to subs tomorrow.

This series will be the death of me.

....... Ai. X3

Falling so deep

Wow... Just, fucking... WOW.

Episode 11 was intense.

Nerd rage~!

Next week is the last episode. I'll probably curl up into a ball and die from heartbreak.

Random anime meme

Taken from Tumblr.

Choose 5 anime shows you like before reading the questions.

1. Free!
2. Prince of Tennis
3. Giant Killing
4. K
5. Kuroko no Basket

And the questions... )

It was around question #14 that I realized four of the five series I chose were sports series. .^^;;

How Free! instantly became a better sports series than Prince of Tennis

Not that it takes much to be a better sports series than PoT, but Free! did it in seven episodes, simply because


Hint hint, Konami.

If you're not watching 'Free!', then you really need to be.


Obviously, for the great...


And also for Rin's adorable shark teeth.

But mostly, more than anything, you should watch it for this guy.

Doesn't he just look so cool? =3 So studious and serious.

Well, he's not.

Rei is a special butterfly who needs to learn how to spread his wings and FLY~!
He's also the outcast in a series about a group of childhood friends, and sometimes just seems so scared of being left behind. I wanna hug him. .;_;

Watch it. Squee with me.

Also, best ED I've seen in a long time.
(Wait, did I say "best?" I meant "gayest.")
