Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari by supercell, ED to Bakemonogatari, one of the better shows of this season. Bakemonogatari is adopted from a series of light novels by NisiOisiN, famous for his Zaregoto series. The video above is not actually the PV of the song, but a MAD from Nico Nico Douga (account required). The real PV could be found here, but I much prefer this version.

Since the spring season is over and summer show are about to begin (or has begun), and it’s as good of a time as any for a review of the last season and a preview of the next. The below is a list of shows that I watched last season and hoping to watch for the next:
I found myself being totally burned out from work last week and decided to dig through my dusty stack of anime sitting in my HDD waiting to be watched. I wanted something mindless and shortish, so I thought Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchou Tou (東京魔人學園剣風帖 龖) suited my needs pretty well.
Considering that the 灼眼のシャナ (Shakugan no Shana) movie was released last month (4/21/2007), and I just got my hands on the two theme song single CDs (this and 赤い涙/Beehive (Akai Namida), what kind of Shana fan would I be if I don’t write about them?

Auu…

Compared to last week’s episode, there was quite a bit of plot development and action in this episode. Unfortunately, the animation suffered a bit as well. Ryuk looks positively weird in a lot of the scenes, not just because of the action involved or that he was suffering from Apple withdrawal. L and Light had a few scenes where they look slightly off as well, though not too noticeable. However, the rest of the episode look pretty good still, so I guess they put most of the budget of this episode into special and video effects and the dirty magazines. j/k Seriously though, I really thought the dirty magazines were drawn better Ryuk in this episode.

I have mentioned that I’m watching Black Lagoon when the arc is complete so I don’t have to languish for the next episode. As soon as I got episode 18, I lined up all three episodes and got ready for some fun. And oh, how fast they flew by. If the last arc of Black Lagoon with Hansel and Gretel is a horror/drama, this arc is an action packed who’s who of Roanapur. It is none stop action from the first minute to the last, sprinkled with a good portion of character development.
