Random Curiosity

Bakemonogatari – 07 »« Suzumiya Haruhi 2009 – 21 (The Sighs of Suzumiya Haruhi II)

Loose Odds and Ends

  • As a reminder, there are no new episodes of Basquash or Fullmetal Alchemist this week because of the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics. A new episode of Bakemonogatari, however, will be airing later today.
  • Speaking of Basquash, I really like the full version of the current ending song and have been listening to the newly released single all week. In contrast, I still don’t like the current Haruhi opening song and laughed when I saw how ridiculous the PV of it was. It certainly doesn’t make me think any better of Hirano Aya.
  • As much as I wanted to blog it because it’s a good series, I really can’t find the time for Sora no Manimani. School recently started again, and my final year of grad school is going to be a doozy. I would still recommend the show though (Jaalin likes it even more than I do).
  • A few people have asked me about my thoughts for the upcoming fall season, and while I haven’t done any significant research on it, my first impression was that it’s even more full of sequels than usual. There’s something like nine or ten of them out of less than thirty new shows, and it’s a shame there aren’t more completely original series. Regardless, I suspect I’ll definitely be watching Darker than BLACK, InuYasha, Railgun, and Kimi ni Todoke.

      Omni, why’d you have to link to the Super Driver PV? I liked it until I saw that… HORRENDOUS video.

    • August 21, 2009 at 12:34 amTim

      Wait, a new season of InuYasha? O.O

    • August 21, 2009 at 12:42 amSadiki

      Well, the Inuyasha anime ended because they weren’t sure when the manga would end. Now that the manga is over, they’re going to finish the anime.

    • August 21, 2009 at 12:43 amTim

      That’s incredible news, especially for me. Sugoi! ^.^

    • August 21, 2009 at 12:45 amdmo

      I always assumed that Inuyasha ended in the middle of nowhere just to piss everyone off…never thought they’d actually finish it o___o…

    • August 21, 2009 at 12:46 amVal Varo

      Oh hell, I didn’t notice Kimi ni Todoke. I hope they do a good job with it.

    • August 21, 2009 at 1:02 amEri

      I’ll definitely watch the animes that you’ve mentioned especially Kimi ni Todoke! :P

      Where is that pic from? I can’t quite read the text.

    • August 21, 2009 at 1:43 amHarbin

      If you’re talking about the pic up top, it’s the album art for Basquash’s current ED. It’s amazing, and I recommend everyone to check it out :D

    • August 21, 2009 at 1:56 amMeery

      Sweet, I can’t wait for some Biri-Biri action; glad you’re gonna watch.

    • August 21, 2009 at 2:09 amahelo

      I WANT RAILGUN :))
      On the other hand does anyone here know the show fairy tail.
      The anime hasn’t started yet but lots of people are already excited about it.
      The manga’s really awesome.

    • August 21, 2009 at 2:10 amiNaZerZ

      I was wondering, Is there gonna be a new “Nodame Cantabile” Season?

    • August 21, 2009 at 2:21 amciq666

      definitely going to watch railgun
      did not like the PV…music was fine, but the video…I guess it’s something the Japanese would like

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:35 amKit-Tsukasa

      Basquash ED is epic. OP is only okay unfortunately. I NEED MY BASQUASH FIX!

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:45 amkabayongtao

      SnS anyone?

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:52 amDan

      With regards to the Basquash ED theme, futari no yakusoku, its a strong song with a catchy tune.
      But, at the same time, there are some parts of the song that i strongly dislike as well.

    • August 21, 2009 at 4:02 amyUkishin

      yey..kimi ni todoke!!!!i really like taht manga..its a shame that the updates are slowT^T looking forward to its animated version..hope taht they’d do justice to it!

    • August 21, 2009 at 4:32 amTelzen

      New InuYasha huh? Now I have to go and download the first 160 or so episodes again. Hope all the voices are still the same.

    • August 21, 2009 at 4:53 amDiabolikul

      whats the name of the anime in the picture??

    • August 21, 2009 at 6:04 amSomeKindaNick

      I must say, that pic I caught of Ayu at 2:26 was totally worth watching that awful video.
      Made me lol quite a bit~

    • August 21, 2009 at 6:05 amPhosphatide

      Sora no Manimani is indeed a good series. I’ve been waiting for perhaps a year for something this simple and fun.

    • August 21, 2009 at 7:47 amBROOKLYN otaku

      really?? inuyasha? i wonder how he’ll beat naraku? DO YOU SUPPOSE he’ll use a wind fang attack? lots of demons out there, i sure hope they know how to guard against a wind fang attack!! UHH-OHH kagome’s in a pinch!!! everybody get down!! because here comes a wind fang attack!! NIGGA PLEASE!!
      lotta good stuff coming our way though. btw-what the heck is “trapeze” about?

    • August 21, 2009 at 7:54 amTyKH

      What? FMA not airing? Nooooooooooooooooooooooo

    • August 21, 2009 at 8:06 amNecco

      Shame about Sora no Manimani, I’m really enjoying the show…nice to see it blogged about, but oh well :)

    • August 21, 2009 at 8:31 amoutcast

      Poor aya hirano, the suzimiya s2 suck is rubbing of to her.
      Listen to this full version of ed3 from LS from around 3:20, she can be fun.

    • August 21, 2009 at 9:35 amBacksun88

      yes inuyasha!! haha, i hope u will blog on that omni ^^. cant wait for fall to come :)

    • August 21, 2009 at 10:20 amSavofenno

      I like both Hirano Aya and Super Driver! PV of it is very good, specially compared to all Michael Jacksons PVs, which are all horrible, as well as the “music” in them. Ridiculous hemorrhoid-sighing. Basquash music is somewhat artificial and laughable. “Cool”. Ha ha ha…

    • August 21, 2009 at 11:50 amye4595

      @ iNaZerZ

      the 3rd season of nodame will air in winter 2010

    • August 21, 2009 at 11:56 amyuuji

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:22 pmiNaZerZ

      Thanks a lot ye4595

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:28 pmSigmond

      I didn’t mind Super Driver…. Then I saw the PV, thanks a lot omni..

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:46 pmjlyn101

      hmmm… Darker than BLACK for me too this fall.

      Speaking of FMA, ED2 PV is out. Lovely song.

    • August 21, 2009 at 3:56 pmGod~Knows~

      There’s only 5 worth watching for me in fall….

    • August 21, 2009 at 4:56 pmkkg22104

      I’m really sad that there’s no FMA this week, something significant will be missing from my Sunday T_T
      I’m excited about InuYasha though, and I was surprised they’re actually going to pick it back up…

    • August 21, 2009 at 5:33 pmLithium17


      Horo > Inuyasha :-O

    • August 21, 2009 at 11:05 pmIzzat

      KYA~MAGI DE?!

    • August 22, 2009 at 12:28 amKairuu

      @Izzat & Samurai, it looks like the case art (or hidden booklet art) of Basquash ED (if my fail eyesight is right, the text says Futari no Yakusoku).

      Can’t recognize the characters cause I don’t watch the show, so ya know…

      Downloading ED now to make sure.

    • August 22, 2009 at 12:29 amKairuu

      Yup, case art. (@ you too, Diabolikul, didn’t see you there).

    • August 22, 2009 at 12:31 amKairuu

      Shame really…thought it was…

      …you know…

    • August 22, 2009 at 7:48 pmNeo_NMO

      Futari no Yakusoku FTW… i just have to turn it down in my car when i pull up to a stoplight or something =/

    • August 23, 2009 at 10:39 amPikapu

      umum… Hirano Aya is definitely high… well in that music video at least…
