Did I mention the Princess Princess anime? I saw it in Animage and thought the girls in Gothic Lolita princess outfits looked really good. I also noticed they had some beautiful gothic boys as well, not to mention nice uniforms! Then I noticed that the gothic lolitas and the school boys and the gothic boys were all the same three guys...

I actually read the article.

So, in an all-boys school, three boys (Kouno Tooru, Shihoudani Yuujirou, Yutaka Mikoto) are picked to be 'hime'. 'Hime' have many responsibilities throughout the school and also gain many favours, including free tuition and Goth Loli clothes from the H.E. department. Imagine if the Strahl Candidates in Meine Liebe also had to wear lacy dresses and act like princesses, basically.

I don't think I need to say anything more at this point (except: no seiyuu announced yet). You already know if you'll like it or not. ;)

Ouran High School Host Club (Ouran Koukou HOST CLUB) cast:

Fujioka Haruhi: Sakamoto Maaya.
Suou Tamaki: Miyano Mamoru.
Ootori Kyouya: Matsukaze Masaya.
Hitarain Hikaru: Suzumura Ken'ichi.
Hitarain Kaoru: Fujita Yoshinori.
Haninodzuka Mitsukuni: Saitou Ayaka.
Morinodzuka Takashi: Kirii Daisuke.

From Moonphase:
  • Gonzo is animating a Japanese version of the Witchblade comic (US)? That one passed me by...
  • March 1st, the opening and ending themes to Nerima Daikon Brothers (MA-JI-YA-BA and Berima!) go on sale.

    I start work late and finish late today, so I've gone for internet cafe nomihoudai again. I think I noticeably bought a lot more time today, huh?

    I saw the perfect Schuldig!jacket yesterday at a second-hand clothing shop down my road. I thought about it for ages -- when exactly would I wear it, after all? I don't do cosplay here. But I bought it about an hour ago and it just fits. However, I'm going straight from this cafe to work -- how on earth am I going to explain dragging around this absolutely hideous coat!?

    I shall have to watch the first episode to see how I like it, it looks really interesting though ....

    Princess Princess? I don't even know when it's airing though... It may be some time!

    But... but... I *like* Schu's jacket. I really do. Love the tucked in waist and the buttons and the lapels and the cuffs.... And the body underneath it is pretty nice too....

    If you can't tell, I'm not really very fashion forward.
    Williamgenkischuldich on 27th January 2006 06:23 (UTC)
    Yeah, it looks great... on him!!

    I'm more in tune with Crawford's dress sense myself (at least, I'm almost always wearing suits these days!), so I guess I'm not very fashion forward either. :)
    nekojitanekojita on 27th January 2006 06:30 (UTC)
    Yeah, guess it helps to be a tall, thin German guy when wearing that coat.

    And I don't know, I think Crawford looks pretty snazzy, except for the white ice-cream man suit and Gluhen look. *shudders in horror*
    Williamgenkischuldich on 27th January 2006 06:47 (UTC)
    I like the Gluhen look... ^^;;
    nekojitanekojita on 27th January 2006 15:44 (UTC)
    You know, it's the slicked back white hair and the eyeglass that does it in for me. I just *can not* see Crawford using a bottle of hair gel every day.

    somehow i dont seem to look forward to ouran koukou anime, the castings have changed other than suzuken.;;__;; i like the original casting more ;;__;; and i prefer the manga drawing...
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:32 (UTC)
    Yeah, I think the original cast was better too...

    *dies laughing*
    I've got to see that Princess anime XD

    At least the character designs look good if nothing else.
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:33 (UTC)
    It's either going to be wonderful and therefore fantastic or dreadful and therefore fantastic. I don't see how you can lose with this one! :)

    I think I'll have to check out Princess Princess. It sounds like it could be very cute and funny. Thanks for the info!
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:34 (UTC)
    It could be a lot of things! This'll be interesting...

    ...Damnit, sometimes I really wish I had cable!
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:34 (UTC)
    True that. But we can see many things first, right? Even if we can't download them...

    What are you up to these days, btw?
    Inmalovelessinma on 27th January 2006 08:47 (UTC)
    Am I the only one who thinks the Princess Princess boys look like a much more cute version of the Sukisyo trio? *laughs*
    Thank you very much for telling about this series, I had no idea it existed! (or will exist)

    But it's not BL, ne?
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:35 (UTC)
    It's not BL, no. But it'd be crazy not to give a nod in that direction...!

    The chap in the middle individual picture for that Princess Princess thing looks like he wants to be the long-nailed prince from Ludwig Revolution, which is never a bad thing.

    Oh, and Meine Liebe Wieder is being subbed… or at least it will be… once I finish editing for lyrical phrasing that is. ^_^;
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:46 (UTC)
    Hm, I doubt that I shall be able to download it though unless I find a way to use torrents at this net cafe! ^^ Good luck with the subs!

    Taishi Zaou is the author of Princess Princess! *loves her* Can't wait to watch this :D
    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th January 2006 13:46 (UTC)
    I can't wait either! ^_^
    Sabrinasabrinanj on 1st February 2006 17:37 (UTC)
    I have posted some Princess Princess scans here ^_^
    Williamgenkischuldich on 4th February 2006 03:37 (UTC)
    Ooh thanks -- I think I might just go to a bookshop and buy it! :)
    Nnokiirat on 31st January 2006 00:37 (UTC)
    awesome cast for host club. thanks for all the anime updates.
    Williamgenkischuldich on 31st January 2006 03:29 (UTC)
    I preferred the one for the CD drama, but it's okay. ^^ No problem, been a bit slow lately, haven't I?

    Just in case you didn't already know:

    Omg, Cinnamon Ass linked to you! Small e-world, huh!

    Williamgenkischuldich on 4th February 2006 12:46 (UTC)
