Aries Hangover

Me, an Aries, reflecting on my actions afterwards.

Note she didn’t say they weren’t true. But some things just shouldn’t be said.

Watching Gakuen Alice on DVD. It’s also on VRV / Crunchyroll.

Dodgeball

I just started watching Gakuen Alice on VRV / Crunchyroll. It is absurd and hilarious. The main character, Mikan Sakura, reminds me of Sana Kurata from Kodomo no Omocha / Kodocha. In the episode I’m currently watching, Mikan is attempting to recruit members to play on her dodgeball team. Since students are able to use their special abilities in the game, her classmates are reluctant to join her team. They’re hesitant because the other team’s leader, Natsume Hyuuga, has the ability to use fire. Unfortunately with Mikan’s special ability being nullification, she is disheartened to know it may be useless in the game. As she reviews her list of players, it gave me pause to wonder what she would write about me if I was on her team! I guess curly-perm isn’t the worst thing to be called, but she needs to learn people’s names!

I Had a Crush Like That Too

My entire family and I love the anime Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun / Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (Holic probably being the only other anime we all agree on). Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun is funny, it’s cute, and has great characters. If you’re looking for a light-hearted, humorous anime about friendship, and a touch of romance, give this one a try.

Chiyo Sakura is absolutely in love with Umetarou Nozaki. He is oblivious. Having experienced something similar (I too, am a sucker for the tall and manly) I understand Sakura’s feelings.
