My user info looks awesome right now. :)
And, as it happens, there's more stuff up on Velvet Under World, including my personal favourite... FAKE!
A master of disguise. No one has ever seen his real face.
A sniper. He's a professional.
The ranger symbol shows that he's a survival pro. He's an exceptional driver as well, capable of driving any moving vehicle.
It's Mr No-Brake! And if no one has ever seen Fake's real face, he could be anyone from previous Weiss... or be scarred... or it's a source of angst. Actually, I'm POSITIVE about the last one. :)
My computer's fan is broken, so I can't spend more than 15 mins or so on here at a time in case it overheats. I need to go to Akihabara to get a new one, really. In any case, if I disappear suddenly, that's why.
I bought "Bokura no #1", "Code Geass #1" and "Amatsuki #1" at Animate on Wednesday. I've already finished "Bokura No" and it's a lot better than the anime. The dialogue is a lot smoother and it's more melodramatic. Just before he dies, Waku has a half-epiphany and is just starting to understand himself. It was even more tragic than the anime. There are also more hints packed into the manga. Although my aim was to read ahead, the manga covered what I'd seen already plus a plot arc fragment. I want to get the next volume!
I've started Code Geass #1 and I'm not sure if I'll finish it. I guessed it was some kind of adaption, but so far it seems to suck. The character designs are good (CLAMP, right?), but the writing is clumsy and obvious. The characters just come out and say exactly what they're feeling without any attempt to show it instead. Having said that, I've never seen the anime. Since there are so many episodes released already, I thought I'd just read the manga in order to enjoy what everyone else was watching. Pity it's so bad, because everyone seemed to agree the anime was extremely well-plotted.
I got "Amatsuki #1" and... well... I haven't read it so I don't know what it's about. Animate seemed to be promoting it and it had some really nice merchandise (LAMENTO too). In fact, there's pretty cool new merchandise including some LOVELESS goods. So, yeah, that's why I bought it.
