i.e. lost my internet connection yet again...5th time this year, and counting...

I've been busy...I still am...if fact, I should be working on an essay...but I haven't quite figured out what to write yet, even if I have done all the reading...anyways...

It's Sakurai Takahiro (櫻井孝宏)'s week at seiyuu. (Why is Advent Children taking so long to be released?!?)

According to Kimiko on the yahoo group, D.N.Angel is meant to be returning 'next month' - it's not very clear, but I think she means in the July issue of Asuka (haven't been able to verify it since I can't figure out if the official website has a 'next issue' page...).

I seldom visit the Fruity Group ml anymore (it's become a really frightening place, with over 100 messages and new members each week at least, though it hasn't affected me personally), but last time I did, I found out about the petition for a second season of the anime. They mentioned that, once they'd collected 500 signatures, they'd start sending petitions to FUNimation, to be spaced 100 signatures apart. Currently, there are over 2000 sigs, and it seems that FUNimation has reacted (the link should change eventually, but that's where is is now...). Personally, I think a second season is a stupid idea (reasons will be forthcoming), unless they decide to re-do the entire first season...

Evangelion news: We now know why Evangelion manga chapters are released so infrequently... "On April 26th in a variety show Waratte Iitomo, six manga editors from various publishing companies appeared on TV and answerd some questions." (Source: Animania Blog) When asked what he does to make the mangaka meet the deadline, the Eva editor answered: "I give up."

I haven't quite finished ranting about GSDestiny yet, but the monthly Gundam power rankings announced on Gunota Headlines on April 26 were kinda interesting...

(edited out some rankings after the 10th positions...) It's interesting to note that Cagalli has fallen from 2nd (if I remember correctly) to 4th, whilst Athrun is still 2nd...

Currently watching Sukisyo (I know I decided I wouldn't watch it whilst watching GSD...I decided to risk it, especially since I was getting annoyed at Ishida Akira's character (Athrun) anyway...figured it wouldn't make much of a difference anymore...), and I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. It's funny, especially Sora XD (never expected Midorikawa Hikaru to voice a character like this!) - but the thing that amused me most so far (seen up to ep.6) was in ep.3, where Sunao kept pointing out how greedy Sora was being; it's ironic - Hoshi Souichiro's lj community is _harahetta_ (腹減った)...I find strange things amusing...
