hylidae: Bartido from Grim Grimoire, a PS2 game. (Default)
Just finished this today and LOVED it. The series is just extremely well written and the two seasons mesh well together. Though NGL, I really loved Birdy's season over Tsutomu. On the other hand, the growth that he went through in season one made him really kickass in season two. And it takes some chutzpah to being a badass nonaction guy in a series where people can regularly blow buildings up. I really love how the themes of love, the end really being the beginning, redemption, and the somewhat cyclical nature of life twist like vines between the two seasons.

Day 10 - A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway. I really should hate this book since its really just a man fishing. But idk I just really like Hemingway's writing style. I also got caught up in the manly struggle and what not. I wish I could write more but its been a lifetime and a half since I read this book and I could very well hate it now. I just remember tensing up since it was English class and all, then bam! Manly tears.

Day 1 - Very first anime


Its a toss up between this:


Speed Racer/Mach Go Go Go for the uninitiated.

Or this:



I watched the G-Force version (original is Gatchaman if I recall correctly).

Its official, I'm an anime geezer. On a serious note, its funny how these series have shaped my anime tastes. I generally love stuff with mech, fight scenes, tenable grasp on reality, and a certain amount of cheesiness.
