I did a little bit of poking around on 2ch (yes, yes, I know) and the rumours are that the Kuroshitsuji anime will be shown on TBS and affiliates (Geass, Gundam 00, Death Note...), with the animation handled by A-1 Pictures (Persona, Ookiku Furikabutte). Who knows? Do not doubt the powers of otaku... they noticed that Kuroshitsuji was listed as an anime in the next issue box of Animedia. That is some dedication right there.

In other news, I went to training at the weekend and went straight to a party where I felt completely homicidal. Nothing wrong with the party, just being around "normal" people all day. Anyway, the friend in question who was holding the party loves to cook and bake cakes. He's laid on this amazing American-style party, complete with home-cooked nachos, pasta, artichoke heart soup, Key Lime pie, two different kinds of cheesecake, Black Forest gateau... Yeah, it was good.

Afterwards, he let us take what we wanted from a pile of books that he was going to take to a bookshop otherwise. I actually found some books that I was days away from ordering online! I found the Golden Compass, Stephen King's On Writing, Neverwhere, and a copy of Good Omens. I read that last one years ago because I'd scared myself watching The Omen on TV (I was around 12/13) and needed something to take my mind off it. My copy is back in the UK... somewhere. All in all, I got so many English-language books that I needed two reinforced carrier bags to carry them all.

The next day, I went back for Dungeons and Dragons and to eat leftover cake. Then I headed to aionwatha's place for anime and pizza. We ordered Pizza Hut because... um... Geass? She showed me the first two eps of Monochrome Factor and three eps of Chi's Sweet Home. I've had the theme song in my head all day.

I watch it like, religiously, on youtube. Because it is awesome.
And I named Otousan "Toshi PAPA" because he looks like Toshi because I am THAT INSANE.

I know! Actually, I didn't even know what Key Lime Pie was until that day, but I do now. Some of the stuff he cooked is so hard to get over here too.

Monochrome Factor is looking to be pretty good.

=D Monochrome Factor is gaytastically retarded! Yet somehow still entertaining! I rather love it, in that "my brain is rotting by the second as I watch this show" sort of way.
Williamgenkischuldich on 17th July 2008 12:19 (UTC)
Definitely. I felt the same way about Gakuen Heaven, if you've seen that?
Owenkidboomerang on 17th July 2008 19:40 (UTC)
I have not! But it sounds like I should. *checks it out on ANN*

(oh, oh! VUW game? =D ... *has been revisiting my notes and stuff*)

It's pretty gay... but without *coughcough* the fear that your favourite character might die or something. :P

Yes! I've been thinking about that. Whether Koyasu succeeds or not in going through with it will affect our gameplan, I think. I will email you when I'm sober (Saturday?), but until then, please think about whether you want to go for serious character studies ("what should have been") or crack anything-goes.

...I, uh, seem to be cosplaying Fake already in my icon. Completely unintentional, I assure you.

Haha, well, I don't take character lives in Monochrome Factor very seriously. I can't get attached to character that dumb, although they are lovable.

Woohoo! VUW! ... well, I'm prone to serious character studies. But that's because I can't really write crack? I could write an okay straight guy to someone else's crack anything-goes, though?

...er, you realize that doing serious character studies of Koyasu-created characters in itself constitutes crack, right? =P

In the end, I sent an email to your LJ inbox. I hope you get it okay?
Owenkidboomerang on 25th July 2008 13:53 (UTC)
Yup, replied from my regular email.
