I do think you guys know who these two are, of course, it’s Kyoko from Skip Beat! and Yukino from Kare Kano. Who wouldn’t recognize such difference between these two strong female leads? One who gets a shiver of pleasure from the attention and praises of other people while the other one abhors the whole existence of intimacy and affection from other people.

Well basically, I think the bottom line is what they get from living off from the opinions of others or/and disregarding them.

I don’t know if I still have to explain the mechanics, but basically, several filanibloggers have decided to draw lots of anime(s) that has 13 episodes or/and lesser such as OVAs, and we have to blog it, to generate some sort of discussion. I was assigned to post the first entry — and yes I got Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan.

Ugh, what should I talk about this show? I really didn’t expect myself to blog about this show, but here I go with my ramblings.

I don’t know if it was so coincidental but I do think Karekano’s concept of personality facet based on Yukino is somewhat the same to that of Persona 4’s concept of shadow.

Kare Kano is probably one of my favorite old anime(s) around during my childhood, but I’d say I only liked it because of the comedy. Now that I’ve rewatched it, I don’t think Karekano is just qualified as a good anime just because of its comedy, but also because of its psychological concept. I also consider its depiction of relationship as one of the good ones.

My gameplay has been interrupted last summer and since I was busy from school work from there on, I was only able to finish P4 this Christmas break. Now, I was able to finish one among the games in my backlog.

I’ve finished Persona 3 (The Journey) just last year, also this time of year, so I can still clearly remember it to compare it to its successor, Persona 4. I think I already made a comment about this on The Fool regarding the depth of the story and the artistic choices of the production. Persona 3 is much more engaging in my opinion because I think Persona 3 has this ominous and eerier atmosphere compared to Persona 4 which only involves serial murders through the use of the Midnight Channel. Well, if if you think of it, Midnight Channel is creative, but I also think it has it’s own down side compared to Dark Hour.

Spoilers Alert!

2009 is the first year I’ve actually completed to monitor from January to December. Now I can fully assess the anime(s) I’ve watched—and liked from every season. Is 2009, yay or nay?

The anime(s) listed below are not really in any order of preference or such, but these are my final picks for the best shows for the year of 2009. I really didn’t include shows which weren’t done airing yet. Meanwhile, I’ve included a show from 2008 Fall which didn’t finished airing on 2008.

Anyway, I’ve finally finished Persona 4 before the end of the year so expect some sort of a review of the game. It’s partly responsible why the year end post is late.
