Random Musings – 234 Days Since FSN Edition

Two really quick things before I go to bed:
  • It’s hard to believe that it’s been 234 days since the final episode of Fate/stay night last year. That’s how long I’ve been waiting to hear Kimi to no Ashita, and now it’s finally been released on Tainaka Saichi‘s latest single. FSN certainly had it’s ups and downs, but this song brings back all the good memories, particularly of the ending. 234 days…time sure goes by fast.
  • The few of you who still watch Ayakashi Ayashi may have noticed that I haven’t blogged the show in a couple of weeks. I really just couldn’t motivate myself to continue watching because it didn’t interest me enough, so I’ve dropped it. My apologies to those of you who were still keeping up.

    Random Musings – Jumping the Shark Edition


    -For those of you who are Densha Otoko fans, there will be a 2-hour special airing at 9:00PM JST on September 23rd, 2006 called 「電車男デラックス~最後の聖戦~」 (Densha Otoko Deluxe ~The Last Crusade~). According to the first announcement from back in July, Densha Otoko is planning to marry Saori, but along comes a new rival (played by Kitamura Kazuki). It will apparently take place in Tahiti and will also feature Saori’s grandfather (played by Fujimura Shunji), along with most of the original cast (including Shiraishi Miho). I’m interested, but it’s more like cautiously optimistic. A special like this can easily turn out to be complete crap. Incidentally, Sept. 23rd is the same day as the last episode of Blood+.

    -The web preview of the next episode of Zero no Tsukaima is up.

    -Rumor has it that the ending song to the final episode of Fate/stay night, 「君との明日」 (Kimi to no Ashita), performed by Tainaka Sachi, will be released on November 22nd, 2006. This is based on rumblings about it on various bbs, but I haven’t seen any concrete proof yet (i.e. an Amazon.co.jp or Neowing listing or something similar). We’ll have to wait and see for more news.

    -And finally, some good news and bad news. Bad news: it seems that Naakay will be unable to blog Honey and Clover II. For now, that show is in limbo because I don’t have the time to blog it myself. Good news: on the other hand, wh0sj0hngalt is signing onto the team to help out with the rest of Ouran High School Host Club.
