dangermousie: (Anime: Hakkai by brainfuneral)
Watched two more episodes of Saiyuki last night, one involving the gang rescuing Yaone, and one with the four sisters of doom (or some equally dramatic title). It keeps getting better and better. I love the sometimes different style: geographical patterns, odd colors, splashes of black and scarlet. It plays with the format, and so far, it works wonders.

I am also entirely too predictable, as my crushes in this one are Hakkai and Kougaiji, with Hakkai being the most favorite one. At least I am nothing if not predictable. I adore Sanzo (so no need to lob bricks at me, [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer :P), but he just doesn't do it for me the same way.

Longish Saiyuki thoughts )

In other news, I saw another episode of Gawl which was good, but I had to stop, because the dub was driving me insane. The men were OK, but whoever was doing the heroine made me want to kill her: she sounded shrill and stupid and made me want to strangle her.

I also tried an ep of Sorcerous Stabber Orphen which I also liked just fine. No mad pash, but Orphen himself is kinda cool from the little I saw. The only thing is, please tell me he doesn't hook up with Cleo? I have rarely been as annoyed by a character as I am by her. Their first meeting takes place when (in a favorite scenario) she mistakenly thinks he's been peeping on her. So what does she do? She grabs Daddy's sword and tries to kill him. Repeatedly. While complaining he won't stand still. I don't know if it's supposed to be cute, but it comes across as bratty and psychotic. Other anime women who are violent, I don't have a problem with because hitting someone on the head is unlikely to be permanent. She is dreadfully annoying.

I keep wanting to make a long, long post on my Wodehouse crush, R. Psmith (who is witty, and intelligent and cool and actually has a heart, which is a Wodehouse rarity) but I am so lazy. Is anyone on the flist a Wodehouse fan?

Also, I started watching Generator Gawl which I like (Gawl looks a bit like Howl, oddly enough), but which is going to have the distinction of being the first series I watch dubbed, not out of any love for the dub itself (it seems OK enough, even if I find Gawl's voice a tad annoying) but because whoever subtitled this thought it was a good idea to leave half the dialogue out. This, while it leads to fun games of guessing 'what did he/she just say?' and trying to come up with the likeliest scenarios, has the disadvantage of leaving me hopelessly lost. Not to mention frustrated. And it also leaves some pretty important bits of info (like the fact that Gawl was made (aka not reallly human any more?) is one of the many times the subtitles decided to die).

Oh, and the scene in Saiyuki where Hakkai calmly started gouging his own eye out to the demon (from the clan he eradicated) who wanted him dead? And told him "you want to kill me? I don't really care for living anyway. Here, I'll start by giving you my right eye, and then my left and then my right ear and then..." as he was pulling out his eye. That man is SO fucked up. I also liked that the clan he killed because they delivered his OTP to the monster to rape and torture, was a clan that would have been allowed to live if they had done so. Because I don't blame Hakkai for going berserker on them, but I could understand their position too.

I am going to start to use "anime2" tage because the "anime" tag is way over a hundred entries and thuse anything really far back gets scrambled and inaccessible through tag system. In fact, I actually recoded a whole bunch, both to make 'anime' tag under a 100 entries so it could be searcheable, and to keep series together as much as possible (e.g. all Kenshin posts, even the really early ones, are now tagged 'anime2' and all FY posts, no matter how late, are tagged 'anime')

ETA: Damn. For some reason, even with retagging, my earlier anime entries don't show through the system. Argh! I coded them by series too, but it's annoying I can't pull up any of Escaflowne or Trigun and half of HYD by using the anime tag. Yes, I am anal, why do you ask?
