Hey whaddaya think I'm doin' here?

OK, here's a little gem I've dug up for y'all.

Hanada Shounen-shi has a lot going AGAINST it. Goofy characters, OP AND ED songs by the Backstreet Boys, unpleasant main character. Not to mention the story setup is basically Sixth Sense times Ghost divided by Crayon Shin-chan and Dennis the Menace.

But I didn't download the first 15 episodes this morning just to brush up on my French! This oddball show somehow manages to grab you by your heartstrings and jerk you around like a puppet. A snot-nosed bald kid who has a big scar on the back of his head with 9 (one of the very inauspicious numbers in Asian numerology) stitch marks whose hair will never grow back.

If you're in the mood for death, this is a good counterpoint to Shinigami no Ballad. I wonder if the suicide rate in Japan has gone up with this current vogue in death-themed anime shows? Bleach, Shinigami no Ballad, Jigokushoujo, and this Hanada show....

Ok, here's my list of anime coming out next soon that I'm looking forward to:

Jyuousei (or Jyu Oh Sei) - Airs in April - Based on a manga Itsuki Natsumi which ran in Hana To Yume (also runs/ran Fruits Basket, Hana Kimi, Angel Santuary, etc, etc). Twin brothers are sent to a prison planet due to a plot against their wealthy and powerful father. That's a pretty thin synopsis, but I have faith in Hana To Yume which typically runs quality shoujo titles. Enough faith to check out a few eps.

xxxholic - series to air in July.

Nana - Adult shoujo. This is based on a manga that ran in Shoujo Beat here in the US and is now coming out in graphic novels as well. Airs on 4/5/2006.

And maybe Princess Princess - the synopsis looks kinda like a cross between Miene Liebe (ugh)and Hana Kimi. I have on good authority that it's a comedy and pretty good (the manga anyway). It's basically about a guy who goes to an all boys school who gets elected to dress as a girl to give the school some feminine appeal.

Anyone else got their eyes on something? With Juuousei and Nana both coming out in April, I'm hoping that next season will be more productive than the last couple have been.

> Man, I love this. I actually liked the teevee version, but this version is much better. My least favorite character in the teevee version was Father Alexander Anderson. But they fixed him in this one by getting Norio Wakamoto, the voice of Chiyo-chan's dad from Azumanga Daioh, to voice it. That guy's voice just cracks me up.

Wakamoto gets around... he does the title character's voice in a new show, Yoshinaga-san-ke no Gargoyle. I don't know what to think of this show... Gargoyle is a statue... some kind of robot guard dog statue. He talks and he can zap people with electricity or heat so far. He's very serious about his work as the guardian of the gate to the Yoshinaga family's home. In the first episode he zaps an unfamiliar paper-boy. But there's something compelling about the show in a Narutaru sorta way...

I like Gargoyle more than another new show I just watched, Garasu no Kantai or The Glass Fleet. Kantai drew my curiousity being a Satelite AND GONZO project. But basically it's Last Exile with some Utena and Rose of Versailles thrown in the mix. There's a superficial resemblance to Crest/Banner of the Stars but Stars was a much better show. There's some swashbuckling here but nothing we haven't seen before.

Here's a promising first episode... Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, or "Around the time the Higurashi Sing" which takes place way out in the boonies somewhere, around the students of a one-room schoolhouse. Higurashi are a type of cicada, I believe. There's some kind of old murder mystery where an arm was never found, a dream a character has of hacking up a body, a trash dump that seems to conceal something... There's a great deal of harem-style gakuen silliness (most of the major characters are girls at the school, while the protagonist is a boy who recently moved to the area).

Hmmm... there IS a strong element of this being another role-playing type game based story (which this title actually is, I think) but I liked Elfen Lied (although there doesn't seem to be any SF or monster aspect here...) so I think I might like this.

I'm moving this topic to a new thread since this one is more than 10 pages now...

> HANBUN NO TSUKI GA NOBORU SORA - Sky with the Half Moon - I'm sensing a major romance/tear-jerker of the old "Love Story" variety... a high school boy who is in and out of a hospital a lot because of his chronic hepatitis falls into a relationship with a mysterious beautiful girl who "lives" in the special cases wing. She's got one of those movie-friendly heart ailments that probably needs an operation for her to survive. So it's like one of the oldest soapy romance plot devices, but I think this is done well. Pretty drawings, nice voice acting, pretty good script. It's not shoujo... it's shounen romance, mostly from the POV of the boy. And it's not for adults really, not like ParaKiss or Honey & Clover... probably aimed at a teen audience.

just finished it and did a google search to see if it had been mentioned (greencine game up with nothing lol

Anyway its great im glad I came across it as its not very well known at all. I thought it was well done with excellent animation and voice acting.

As for a tearjerker or not I wont spoil anything but it might have ended happily u never know! unless you watch all 6 eps :P
