tear-jerker of an anime: kimi ni todoke

20 Jan

this ship is currently running on a really tight routine -_-;

watched (only) the first 8 episodes of kimi ni todoke (reaching you) last night.

the last time a single anime-related series repeatedly brought me so close to tears was probably densha otoko (train man).

yes i know, my friends also think i’m weird getting teary-eyed at an otaku’s struggle in real-life romance.

the only one anime that really made me weep was hotaru no haka (better known as grave of the fireflies to us non-nihongo speakers), that show was so sad that i don’t think i can ever watch it again.

i would throughly recommend watching all three shows. won’t spoiler you with any reviews or even synopsis. kimi ni todoke and densha otoko are light-hearted and touching friendship-romance series, while grave of the fireflies is outright depressing. -_-

tokyotosho down again – 5 december 2010… but this time there is an alternative :)

5 Dec

yup, anime comes to a halt for tokyotosho users.

but as i had learnt from experience of the previous tokyotosho downtime, there are alternatives like nyaatorrents and jishaku.net :)

enjoy!

update: false alarm. it is actually a scheduled downtime. gomen.
