Utena: With Sword

Holiday assignment done, huzzah. Cue frivolity

So, yesterday after I went into Uni to hand in my SSRM assignment, I headed over to the Friendly Neighbourhood Anime Shop Of Dubious LegalityTM. Because I plan on doing very little other than sitting around and watching anime for the next few days.

And within 5 hours of me getting the Darker Than Black boxset, The New Housemate was sitting on the couch watching it. I hadn't even taken off the wrapper yet.

Admittedly, I wasn't planning on watching just yet. Still got enough of my To Watch list to work through. I'm currently two thirds of the way through Full Metal Panic, which I am liking. A highly trivial reason for this: First anime I've come across in which people shout my name a lot. Seriously, check out this video from 1:10 for the next thirty seconds. And the shouter is apparently also C.C.'s voice. Huh.

In other anime news, trailer and pictures for the next lot of Gurren Lagann Parallel Works, which looks very, very shiny.

And Code Geass seems to be doing that thing they claim that exciting new things might be coming, and then don't actually say anything. They're such publicity whores.
