Bleach – 223 »« Bleach – 222

Loose Ends

  • I spent a ton of time sick this week and am still not feeling great from an apparent stomach virus (thankfully it wasn’t related to the TB). I will note though that I’ve now learned the stark difference between public health services and private health services.
  • I can’t say I’m shocked about the new Shakugan no Shana and Darker than BLACK anime announcements – more Shana was only a matter of time, and DtB I had heard a rumor about recently. For now, it’s pretty likely that I’ll end up blogging both of them whenever they come around.
  • In regard to this week’s chapter of Bleach, Show Spoiler ▼
  • And speaking of manga, what was with the recent To Love-Ru/Black Cat crossover (spoilers)? I know it’s not technically a crossover since they’re not the exact same set of characters, but it was close enough. It made me wish Yabuki Kentarou would go do more Black Cat manga.
  • I haven’t heard many good new songs this week, but this one by Oku Hanako stuck with me. It’s not in any way connected to CLANNAD, but it really reminds me of the series, especially the middle parts and the chorus.
  • Since it’s that time of the season again, I’ve started writing the Summer 2009 Preview. There are only about 19 or 20 new shows premiering, but that’s more or less on par with previous years. Nothing really catches my eye though at first glance.

      Awww hope you feel better soon Omni :(
      As for the sequels to the SnS and DtB, YESH!!!! They’ve been in need and answered.
      Bleach was kinda meh, I agree with your thoughts. I remember having to scroll up and down to see her full bankai though xD to like double check.
      Yabuki Kentarou should make more black cat ;A; To Love-Ru… hardly any storyline really in my words, lol. Can read any chapter after getting grasp of main characters. So I’ve been reading the series randomly, but enough to have seen the big crossover.
      Wow, the song Waratte Waratte is a really nice song :D! It really sound CLANNADish at the chorus, along with the keyboard notes with it too.
      Lastly, yay, I humbly await Summer 2009 previews ^___^ glad it starts after my exams :S

      Its been along time since we’ve heard from Arcade and his Daily Doses, So I wonder if there’s any news at all…..Anyways, I hope you get better Omni, try drinking some ginger-ale.

    • June 6, 2009 at 3:47 amSilivious

      Sweetness. :D
      Get better Omni. :)

    • June 6, 2009 at 4:01 amYojimbo

      Yay for more Shana. Hopefully more good anime that had open endings get sequels since the anime in the past few seasons haven’t that great. I’m itching for some more Full Metal Panic >.<

    • June 6, 2009 at 4:23 amGod~Knows~

      I had to check if I was reading the right manga when I got my hands on the latest To Love chapter…

    • June 6, 2009 at 4:35 ambaka~

      im quite ashamed to admit that i’ve grown very dependent on this site especially when it comes to the season anime releases. simply put, i wouldn’t have any ideas what will come out unless omni releases that important post.

      at any rate, will jc be mimicking what sunrise did (by alternating 00 and geass air times) this time alternating shana and to aru index/railgun? i just hope they wont screw up like with what happened to geass where the staff became too reliant on the schedule (im still baffled by how the airing dates of geass affected its success).

      oh and about bleach

      For me, i have see juste three or four animes for this season.
      The must see is W&S 2.
      And the song is beautiful !

      It seems like 2009 will indeed be an interesting year, and finally, confirmation for Shana! Yay! Oh, and take care of yourself Omni~ :P

      Summer shows that interest me – 1. Umineko no Naku Koro ni
      Reason – I was a fan of Higurashi and more from the same creator is welcome.

    • June 6, 2009 at 6:37 amSirMuffin

      Haha! I don’t even read To-Love-Ru but I’ve watched it and read black cat. That chapter was awesome! Really reminds me of black cat… Ah… Nostalgic, isn’t it?

    • June 6, 2009 at 7:04 amshio

      awww, the cover looks hawt :)

      Get better omni :)

    • June 6, 2009 at 7:38 ampsyborg

      Waratte Waratte sounds like a song from the ’90s … i like it.

    • June 6, 2009 at 8:01 ambrianleung8912

      more loli wif sword… does it for me :D

    • June 6, 2009 at 8:19 amNinja Penguin

      That cover really makes me want to molest a anime loli. More Shana is good! :D

    • June 6, 2009 at 8:37 amEclair

      Come on, her bankai is awesome. It’s Kubo using humor.

      Her shikai is a stinger.

      Her bankai is a stinger missile.

      It’s brilliant.

    • June 6, 2009 at 9:18 amEclipse

      I’m glad Shana is finally back for another season! I was beginning to worry it wouldn’t happen.

    • June 6, 2009 at 9:29 amEspada

      i agree with you omni… but we dont know what kind of missile she fired xD

      get well omni! ^^b

    • June 6, 2009 at 9:30 ambaka~

      nice one eclair :D

      that does make sense… but im still doubtful that thing is a missile X_X

    • June 6, 2009 at 10:17 amStan

      Good songs? Hina ED coming out on the 10th.

    • June 6, 2009 at 11:03 amark noir

    • June 6, 2009 at 1:02 pmLQY

      I hope you feel better, now!

    • June 6, 2009 at 1:37 pmOmni

      Xrtear: Arcade had to take some time off to get some RL things in order.

    • June 6, 2009 at 5:58 pmChimasternmay

    • June 6, 2009 at 9:05 pmDelfofthebla

      Exellent news on both sns and dtb sequels, hope you get better Omni.

    • June 6, 2009 at 9:30 pmshirokiryuu

      Darker than Black? That really made my day!

    • June 6, 2009 at 9:40 pmAzure

      Hope you feel better soon Omni.

    • June 6, 2009 at 11:24 pmavexmode

      I was looking foward for more Darker than Black rather than FMA. Good to see it was officially announced.

    • June 6, 2009 at 11:35 pmraqhalzine

      Tat weapon reminds me of a gunlance from monster hunter freedom games…

    • June 6, 2009 at 11:57 pmDuran

      I’ve heard that the SnS anime coming up is a reboot (since it’s hard to do a remotely accurate to the novels version of the anime with the mess JC Staff made out of S2)

    • June 7, 2009 at 12:21 amTJ

      hope you’ll get better soon Omni.

      Soifon’s bankai was kind of meh. Hopefully there’ll be more than just a big honking bazooka.

      As for To-Love, I think the authors are short on ideas, so they are just going to bring in Black Cat characters from time to time to generate buzz lol.

    • June 7, 2009 at 7:24 amNrvqvist

      The song reminds me of do it minnie may from gunsmith cats

    • June 10, 2009 at 10:44 pmCamarilla

      Umineko no naku koro ni and CANAAN are in the summer, I will be following those, other than that, I am looking forward to your post to see what else I will have to watch.
      Have really been looking forward to Umineko though.

      DtB 2 baby~

    • September 30, 2009 at 9:19 pmcharizardpal

      Shana is good hopefully better than last season. Oh and last spring/summer we’ve had some horrible anime so I’m waiting for something worth watching again…
