Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series

Synopsis: Yuuno Scrya is a mage from a distant planet working to fix the problem he started when Jewel Seeds were accidentally spread around the world. In a failed attempt to seal a seed properly, he winds up on Earth in the form of a ferret. However, his battle with the seeds did not end upon reaching the Earth and he needs somebody else’s help to seal the seeds for him. Takamachi Nanoha hears his telepathic cries for help and comes to his rescue. When she is given a pearl known as the Raging Heart she is able to transform into Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and wield a staff to fend off the evil that lies within the Seeds. In order to help Yuuno complete his mission, she needs to seal all 21 Jewel Seeds away, but Fate may be playing a hand in the matter to prevent Nanoha’s goals. -Source: ANN

There are definitely better series out there, and although Nanoha doesn’t make my top ten lists, it does make a favourite. I can’t believe I’ve delayed downloading and watching it for the longest time. To have made two sequels and an upcoming movie means that this series is a must-watch for Nana, Yukarin, and Kana fans. I’ve put off this entry for a while now, and I haven’t updated in a long time because of it, so here it is!

Warning, image heavy.

ARIA is officially over…

Filed under: anime, miscellaneous, seiyuu — Tags: , — staappy @ 10:16 pm

And I’m quite sad about it.
ARIA has got to be one of the most inspirational anime series I’ve seen…
Even tho I’ve watched only a handful, it’s a slice of life anime that hits it right home to the heart.
The manga has officially been licensed by Tokyopop, as well as the box set for North American release.

The last few eps were extremely heartbreaking — I can’t believe it’s over. :(
They may be animated characters on pixels, but I felt the strong wave of emotion brought upon by Ohara Sayaka’s character, Alica Florence. Snow White is, indeed, Snow White.

I guess I have nothing more to say, but seeing as OtaAgg hasn’t finished watching the series yet, I won’t spoil anything (EVEN THO SHE WATCHED THE RAWS TILL THE END). And she said she might type up a lil’ something about ARIA, so I’ll wait for that. :)

Seiyuu Animal Counterpart

So OtaAgg and I were talking about how this month’s ep of Mnemosyne sucked…I didn’t watch it yet, so there wasn’t much to say, cept that [spoilers] Tanaka Rie came back and died again [/end spoilers]. Then she came to the conclusion that it was probably cuz she needed cash so the staff let her voice another ep. Since AN is coming, I thought that maybe she needed to buy another animal yakuza outfit to cosplay in.

Thus, spawned our needed conversation of dressing up our seiyuu with their animalia counterpart.
