That Time of the Year

Wow! Is it that time of the year again?! The time to update this blog?! Hehe! I've been busy with all sorts of things so I haven't had the time to write... not that anyone reads this anyway, except some of my friends who also blog. Anyway, work, work, work is all I do but I still make time to watch my current anime favorites namely: Darker Than Black and Guren Lagann!

My sister and i started watching DTB a couple of months ago... right after Heroes' Season 1 finished. And the series really felt like Heroes where characters known as Contractors have really cool powers. But each Contractor has an obeisance/remuneration they have to fulfill whenever they use their power. Some of these obeisances are really weird and funny. An example is, one guy has to smell socks after using his power! Sick! Other obeisances include, lining up pebbles in a perfect square, eating a flower, writing a poem, etc. This is really a cool show to watch, and the story as it progresses grow darker and deeper.
Guren Lagann is a new series premiered in April by Gainax! I'm not really into super robots but the interesting style and humor made me stick to it. After all, I finished GunSword and that also has mecha in it. So what the heck. And I must say, I love this series! The first episode isn't really spectacular but give it another episode or two and you'll be hooked for sure.

I also watched Paprika. Excellent animation and the story is ok. At first, I can't grasp the story. Perhaps, I was just preoccupied with looking at the art and animation, I barely looked at the subs. haha!
