Okay, just like the game journal, post what you've been watching, any key thoughts on series'/movies/etc, and so on. Cool junk you've acquired can be popped up too. Screencaps and photos welcome, but for ones over 400px wide please just link, don't embed.
To date, I've started watching the new Ah! My Godess TV series on DVD, and I'm a big fan so far. It's obviously not as OMG PRETTY (pardon the pun) as the OVAs or movie, but it's definitely doing a good job at balancing fluid animation and not skimping on the elaborate costumes and hairstyles.
And just to plug, there'll be a review of mine on it coming up on Anime Dream, so check the site after this weekend.
I've also been watching Salaryman Kintaro, an oldie but goodie about a former roughneck gang leader who's trying to change his life and enter the business world. It's fairly campy at points because of the gang leader past and whatnot, but it's also quite endearing.
REC - Aka in Episode 2
Finally, I've been watching REC and reading Shion no Ou. REC is about a run of the mill salaryman down on his luck with women who runs into a girl aspiring to be a voice actress. It's very much a romantic drama with some comedy thrown in. It sounds very generic, but the details make it fairly unique. Recommended, just don't be surprised at the short (10 minute!) episodes.
Shion no Ou is a manga about a girl who plays Shogi (can anyone say the next thing the fans will be clamouring for once Go dies down?) and has a very traumatic past. Her parents were murdered when she was very young and she's been unable to speak as a result of the shock. She writes a lot of what she wants to say on a notepad to compensate and isn't a total introvert. Playing shogi brought her out of her shell and she's quite competitive, though still hampered by elements of her past (who wouldn't be with that sort of thing?). It's well drawn (though some of the hairstyles make the heads look a bit longer than they should in the back), and flows quite well. Very recommended.
