Thought I'd give this whole Journal thing another shot and see if I can actually make the nonsense I say worth the time people take to read. So, I'll start with two simple statements.
Nodame Cantible is the greatest anime in the whole wide world... to music students like myself. The main character is an ego-centric composer that personifies all the snooty, self-righteous, and egotistical aspects of being a music student. And of course, the crazy piano girl, Nodame, that thinks half of her age, but I love her anyway. A plus is all the classical music I'm familiar with that gets played a lot as part of the series and it flows rather well. Since Del Rey is translating the manga, which makes me happy, I guess it's only a matter of time before the anime gets brought over here... though I doubt the Live Drama will, since there's not much of a market of that here. I'd still watch it if it were subbed.
Last month, I went to Sakura-con, won the 'Best Vocals' in the Karaoke contest, naturally; being the only classically trained person there, (Ego, folks! Ego!), and from there, I've discovered my most favorite AMV in the whole world. And why is it such? It takes something cute and adorable, and messes around with it, until it becomes a psychotic, in a fun way, misrepresentation of itself.
I present to you; Hell Fairy. (Though mostly Work-safe, it's usually best watched at home.)
