Goku and Bulma

Jul. 4th, 2010 | 04:27 pm

Yes, I do have free time on my hands this weekend. (Hence the double posts.) And let me say, I'm loving it.

Speaking of love, I love this scene in episode 1 of Dragonball. It shows Bulma and Goku setting off on their (life-long) adventure together.

And for the record, I don't think of the pair as a romantic couple - they're more like a brother and sister to me.

Akatsuki and Akari - Aria Episode 10

Jul. 3rd, 2010 | 12:19 pm

I love all kinds of anime and manga stories. I love bloody, violent stories like Berserk and Blade of the Immortal, sports stories, like Oofuri and Hajime no Ippo, shojo stories like Princess Tutu and Sailor Moon, shonen stories like Dragonball, Hikaru no Go, and Yu Yu Hakusho, sophisticated josei stories like Flowers and Bees and Emma, moe stories like Maria Watches Over Us and Kamichu, and alternative stories like Ergo Proxy, Texhnolyze, Haibane Renmei, Paranoia Agent, and Lain, etc. If it's well-told, chances are I'll be a fan.

Aria is one of my favorite stories. It's visual Prozac: sweet, gentle, delicately crafted stories that remind me that life is magical. Not an easy thing to do.

One of my favorite couples, well, hopefully couples-to be, in the series is Akatsuki and Akari.

There is no angst, no drama between the two of them. They're just two people gently fumbling toward true love. There were little hints here and there that the two will probably become a couple, but episode 10 of Aria the Natural gives us the biggest pay-off (at least so far).
