Because, I’m sure you’re just dying to know…here are the THINGS I LOVE right now:
Gintama OMG these manga chapters lately are just killing me! I can’t wait to see what each new chapter brings and I’m hoping against hope this arc will be animated someday. The latest chapter (ch 529) totally made me cry.
Fairy Tail Alright, the anime has been kind of slow lately with a pile of filler (though perhaps my favorite filler ep, which is actually not filler because it’s legit from the manga..? “413 Days” aired last week) but the manga is kind of blowing my mind and keeping me on edge wondering what’s going to happen next.
I’m sure it’s no surprise, but something else I LOVE is Kuroko’s Basketball!!! Every week I get so excited and wish I could just watch “Kuroko’s Basketball” forever.
How about Durarara!! X2? Seriously, within three seconds of the opening each week, I think, “Man, I fucking love ‘Durarara.'” And I think that again probably every few minutes every episode. If there’s a lot of Shizuo, then I think it about every seven seconds. Love love love the opening (and the rest of the show, of course.)
Speaking of great openings…I think I could watch the Death Parade opening on loop for about an hour. I get so excited when it comes on. This show has been really fun and interesting so far. I knew nothing about it when I started watching but was hooked immediately.
Girls who end their sentences with “gau gau” and guys who end theirs with “Shabadadoo.” I never thought lesbian bears could be so entertaining…thank you, Yurikuma Arashi! (To this day, I randomly blurt out, “Bears eat people; that’s what bears do.”)
Or maybe I just love bears because I can’t get enough Polar Bear Cafe. I realize this isn’t a “new” show but I marathoned it recently and was so bummed when I ran out of episodes. I wanted to find the perfect screenshot to share but realized I’d just end up watching episode after episode and forget my original purpose… >_<
Of course I love
Hak Yona of the Dawn/Akatsuki no Yona. Ever since reading the cast list before the show aired, I’ve been waiting this entire time for Suwabe-san Jae Ha (or is it Jeaha?) to show up. Now my life is complete. Jae Ha and Hak can just banter back and forth and kick ass indefinitely and I’ll be happy.
The Onibaku and Great Teacher Onizuka. Yes, I realize this is old news, but after watching the GTO anime I started looking for another fix and ended up reading “Shonan Junai Gumi” (aka “GTO: The Early Years”). Loved the shit out of it. So of course I had to continue with “14 Days in Shonan” and I’m reading “GTO: Paradise Lost” whenever a new chapter updates on Crunchyroll Manga. So lewd, so inappropriate, so toilet…so fucking awesome and funny and manly. On several occasions while reading, I hear Elfman’s voice in my head, “That’s a man!”
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, specifically any time Joseph yells, “Oh my God!” This is guaranteed to get a laugh from me no matter how many times he does it. This latest episode (episode 30) was a real treat because I think we got at least two “Oh My God!”s and even a “Holy shit!” I’ll be so sad when this anime is over.
