I have been out with Zombie Girl so much lately that I’ve barely had time to do anything at home, including write lj entries. She has become Sherlock-crazed (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), and wants a fic for her birthday, so I’m contemplating that. I have a few ideas, but nothing terribly solid yet. Her birthday is near the end of September, and we’ll see if I can come up with something by then. And speaking of birthdays, thirteen days until mine! Unless I’ve lost count.
So I’m definitely more of a manga-reader than an anime-watcher. Apart from the fact that the anime usually fucks things up (given people’s apparent allergy to sticking to an established story and characters), it’s just such a pain in the ass to sit down and watch anime episodes. Still, I was kinda looking forward to the new RK stuff. Except now it turns out to be, instead of something we were interested in seeing and possibly something we’d been waiting for for ten years, just a remake of something we already have. Only with more Misao and less Suzuoki Hirotaka. Not that it’s their fault they can’t get Suzuoki, of course, but still… he’s one of the primary reasons I ever bother watching the anime.
And honestly, I’m still kinda looking forward to the new RK stuff. Because… new RK stuff. But, then, given what the last new animated RK stuff was, I really should be wary of saying that, and Poe only knows what the movie will be like. In any event, I’ll watch it all. And maybe there will be some revival in the fandom; that would be nice. I have little hope for my OTP, but I’m used to that by now.
I’m sure something interesting has happened in the last couple of days that I could report on, but I can’t think right now of what it might have been. Maybe another time.
