Bleach – 95 »« NANA – 21

Random Musings – Brand New Morning Edition

A few random news bits/things I have to say:
-With the release of the KamiKazo DVDs, I’m finally able to listen to the full Kamisama Kazoku OP and ED (creditless OP/ED sequences are nice too). Given that I haven’t liked a lot of the past season’s theme songs, I’m glad that I can now put on repeat some songs I really do enjoy.
-This week has been a bit frustrating in the sense that it seems like every post has someone asking about the episodes I skipped last week. For the final time: I will not be making up the episodes that aired during my break. I realize some of you folks aren’t happy with the jump in continuity, but you have to realize how much time it takes to blog everything – time which I just don’t have. The only exceptions are the series that are now being covered by the other writers.
-NANA is getting a new OP next week, another Reira/OLIVIA song called Wish.
-Newsweek is running a story about the popularity of YouTube in Japan. Of particular note is the fact that it mentions The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya as an example in the final paragraph. That’s the first time I’ve seen something like that mentioned in print media.
-There are A LOT of series coming next season, so I’m starting planning early (especially since I won’t be able to take on nearly as many series this time as I normally do). Series I’ve got marked right now include (in no particular order) Sumomomo Momomo, Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na Crescent Love, Kanon, Ayakashi Ayashi, and Death Note. That’s only a small fraction of the total number of shows, and it’s even still a bit early since some shows don’t have airdates yet. As usual, I won’t be making final decisions on what to follow until well into the next season, and I’ll likely watch the first episode of pretty much everything. Hopefully I’ll be able to write a fall preview sometime soon (I love my spreadsheets)
-Oh yea, I almost forgot (very old news): Bleach is moving to Wednesday nights come October.

    I thank you for ripping those songs, I have been waiting for the OP for a long time.

    This upcoming season does look really good. Personally I am really looking forward to Death Note and especially the Kanon Remake.

    I didn’t personally rip the songs. :P

    Well Omni, there’s bound to be people who just don’t read the rules or notes. Nothing much you can do apart from disregarding those comments.
    Thanks for the OP, I’ve been looking for it. :)

    Kanon definitely looks great in all its Kyo-Ani glory, Death Note should prove interesting with its plot.
    Also looking forward to D.Gray-man and Negima?! by SHAFT.
    Definitely quite a few series to look for in the fall season.

    Thanks for introducing me to the names of the fall series! I really can’t wait to check them out! :)

    Looks like there isn’t any intention to release the Singles of both OP/ED of Kamisama Kazoku? That’s really sad.. both songs are pretty catchy to listen.

  • September 1, 2006 at 11:15 pmShin

    Haha thanks a lot. Keep it up at your pace!

  • September 1, 2006 at 11:49 pmStripey

    Hurray for Feena love! Looking fwd to your Yoakena posts. :)

    Hey, I’d been hoping for a Death Note blog! Nice.

  • September 2, 2006 at 12:18 amClamp-X

    damn newsweek for calling suzumiya a cartoon >_

  • September 2, 2006 at 12:25 amPakxenon

    The highlight was Suzumiya Haruhi on a news article. ^^

    Now to find “Brand New Morning”…

    Can’t wait for Kanon!

  • September 2, 2006 at 2:24 am*Chi*

    Hey Omni, no problem there with the past episodes. Just ignore such posts about it and do your thing!
    I’m happy you choosed Kanon. My Prelude DVD was shipped from Amazon 1 week ago, so I hopefully get it next week.
    I decided only to watch Kanon since I have no time because of work, website making and learning Japanese.
    Also it became boring for me always watching animes alone (are you watching alone Omni? Sorry if the question is to personal.)
    Guess I “animed” out a bit, hehe..

    Looking forward to the new NANA OP =]

    Thanks so much for posting the OP/ED for Kamisama Kazoku. I really liked them and was really disappointed they weren’t being released (at all? or just very delayed)

  • September 2, 2006 at 3:43 amdablitz

    ZOMG thanx like 1000 times over!!

    I humbly request a copy of your spreadsheet for my personal reference.

  • September 2, 2006 at 12:11 pmTohru

    Awesome news.
    Just a question, does anybody know where I can download the full OP of Kamizoku?

  • September 2, 2006 at 12:24 pmTohru

    Nevermind. ^
    LOL @ article. I just read it. Haruhi is that popular…

  • September 2, 2006 at 4:59 pmDaveJS

    Go Haruhi :D

    I’m so hyped for the new season. There are sooooo many new anime that are going to premiere! ANd unlike last season, a lot of these seem really good.
