A vindication: Where the hell are we?

No… this isn’t evidence of too much time spent in /b/! This means I’m busy fighting off the undead, of course.

I have absolutely no idea how Martin manages to have a full-time job AND manages to blog lengthy, seemingly  well informed critiques on his animé consumption. I neither had the weekend free nor the funds to attend THAT meet. Maybe he’s an Time traveller? Or an Alien? Probably not an Esper though – that’s just another case of Japanese misusing the English language. Having now got a job it’s apparent that whatever his ability is, I haven’t got it. Here’s the crux of my problem: My animé consumption has essentially been 120 minutes… a month!

There is nothing to blog because there is nothing watched. A void of brightly coloured imagery and high pitched foreign vocals. An animé holiday it’s become, a break I  recommend to fellow bloggers if the season’s dry and the work seems laborious. For me, it’s been useful to redefine firstly, why given the abundance of substitutes, make an effort to become a fan of Japan cartoons? Secondly, why I would ever want to tell anyone about it; let alone the whole wide web (and it’s Lawyers -_-).

More reflection will be dedicated to a post with a picture of Haruhi in the near future, but here’s my scheduale for the relaunch:

Watching:

Clannad~after story (ep 8)

  1. Real life is getting a couple of bloggers I know down ):

  2. Good to see you’re still alive and I’m honoured for the mention! Sadly I’m not a time traveller nor an alien (the rumours that I’m The Stig are also unfounded). Shame you couldn’t make it to the meet though – it was a good laugh. Hopefully your new job will provide funds to go to the next one…?

    I’m following the Clannad After-story in widescreen and ef too of course, but I’d also recomment Xam’d Kurozuka. The former is Eureka Seven all over again and the latter has vampires in it.

    I’ll start piling on the overtime later this week however, so I’ll have to see if I can keep up the pace (but at least I can afford to buy the DVDs!).
