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.
