Nostalgia...

Christmas break has been good to me. I got lots of presents, I earned money, and my grades weren’t bad either. Beside that, though, I managed to dive neck-deep into a new… err… old anime. But before I launch into my detailed rant about the greatness of classic anime, I would like to announce the addition of a contributor to the blog. In addition to my sparse posts, he’ll be adding his own views of anime, mostly as a newcomer to the genre. I thought he could provide a fresh look at some series anime fans have taken for granted and also find some new ones that they haven’t yet dug up.

On the contrary, over the break I was suddenly possessed to find the anime Touch, a cute and interesting sports/romance/comedy from the widely untapped resources of the 1980s’ anime library.

A Clannad Christmas

Anyway, after a party, a lot of fun packing, and a 9-hour drive, I find myself in Corpus. Funny how that works.  So here I am, in the interim between semesters (it’s going to be 77 on Christmas!).

Personally, I’m really not doing much except working part-time as a tech at a video production studio and hopefully finishing Persona 4. Other than that, though, I’m biding my time until Christmas, then biding my time until my birthday, which should be fun.

I am, however, lamenting the end of Kannagi, which was my hands-down favorite anime this season. To every end, though, there’s a beginning, which has in this case manifested as a new series by Joss Whedon, called Dollhouse. Also, Battlestar Galactica is finally finishing up, and I’ll be watching that.

That said, I’ll take a moment to ask what everyone else is doing for the break and also ask what anime series, if any, are starting up in this winter season.
