Anime, daily life and randomness

Endless? I THINK NOT!

Its not everyday you get miracle wishes from a rock, but when you do, it grants you endless summer.

Section 1: Episodes watched today

  • Natsuiro Kiseki 12 (End)
  • Sakamichi no Apollon 12 (End)
  • Acchi Kocchi 10 – 11

Starting with Natsuiro because the episode is about endless summer, but ironically its also the ending episode.
Let’s learn from the past. How did Kyon end Endless Eight? He asked people to do homework. So how did they end the summer this anime? MAKING A WISH ON DA ROCK OF COURSE! The rock started everything, now we go back to the rock to end everything.
hey say history repeats itself, but what’s being repeated isn’t history, its a lesson. Learn from the past, appreciate the present, hope for the future. AND HERE I’M GONNA HOPE HARD THAT SAKI HAS A CONTINUATION.

Sakamichi no Apollon’s ending next!
And here, we have a really nicely ended anime. Even though they graduated without ever seeing Sentarou again, lives go on, time gradually heals everything. Fast forward 8 years, Kaoru is already a doctor-in-training. By chance he meets Yurika, who was whisked away by Junichi to Tokyo. Yurika tells him of a picture that her old friend sent her. Kaoru immediately becomes curious. What happens? Watch it for yourself.

Moving on: A very delayed series. Acchi Kocchi!
I’m wondering why it takes the fansubs I’m watching so long to sub, its not like the show is boring or anything. Unlike Lucky Star, this one doesn’t have as much parodies and more original jokes. Even if they’re stupid puns.
Santa Claws. I’m surprised that the mom actually knows about HP though.
Playing into their jokes without knowing what you’re doing. Hina’s face reminds me of Saki’s ED sequence, where they all become cute chibi characters!

Section 2: Day 31 (bonus) of 30 day challenge

Day 31 is ‘your favourite anime OVA [original video animation].’

OVAs are anime/episodes that aren’t aired over the TV. In other words, either extras or direct-to-BD/DVD releases. Usually the extra episodes that you get coupled together with the BD box are considered OVAs. Most of the time the extras or specials are only a few minutes long, but sometimes they’re as long as a full episode. My favourite OVA is probably the various Hidamari Sketch OVAs.

Due to the format of the show, there isn’t actually a story line, so the OVA of Hidamari Sketch are exactly like their normal episodes. AND WHO DOESN’T LOVE EXTRA EPISODES RIGHT?! Hidamari Sketch gives me such a calming feeling when I’m watching it, I simply can’t wait for the 4th season to be out! I heard its gonna be out next season! Its gonna be titled Hidamari Sketch Honeycomb.

Section 3: Saki

Yes, I will dedicate and entire section to Saki for today. I have finished the original series, and since it left off at the training camp before the Nationals, I continued to read the manga after that. AND DAMN ITS SO SHORT! It is still ongoing, but at least they’ve managed to go into first round of the Nationals already. Most of the chapters written after the anime left off were what happened during the training camp.

Finishing that, I can’t wait for the ending of Saki Achiga-hen! I hope they don’t leave a cliffhanger end again!
