There are two series that start with "Okusama ha" in this season's anime. One is "Okusama ha Joshikousei" (my wife is a high school student), and the other is "Okusama ha Mahoushoujo" (my wife is a magical girl).
Amusingly enough, from the openings, the second is the more ecchi of the two.
It's seriously disturbing, though.
I'm looking into Kamichu! as watching material. Currently planning to watch Loveless (mea culpa) and finish Rozen Maiden.
And I am going to finish Innocent Sin if I have to pry those damn crystal skulls out of my party members' dead, cold hands. (Note: sadly enough, that does actually does make sense.) Two of the damn temples down (and wow, character that disappeared early in the game suddenly reappears!), two more to go, and then the final dungeon.
Er... pant, pant, argh?
Hey, anime question for you. One of my bosses is making noises about licensing and/or translating educational anime. In other words, anime for children that teaches them about Japanese culture, or language, or history. Something teachers could be persuaded to buy to show their classes. I've confirmed that (a) These exist, and (b) Unsurprisingly, English-language websites have NO information on them. Know of any? Alternatively, know of any resources?
Er, the first thing that comes to mind is titles like Oishinbo and Doraemon.
Thanks! I'll look those up and pass them on. Let me know if you come up with any more -- same with all you other Japanese-speakers on here. (Freaks.) =P
Rozen Maiden is cute, I was fond of it. If you haven't already looked at them, my favorite shows from this season are Honey & Clover, Gakuen Alice, and Futakoi: Alternative.
Indeed, though Gakuen Alice is from a couple of seasons ago, actually, it's just that the fansubbers are slow as molasses ^^;
Thank you for your assistance with Bitorrent. ::greedily downloads Mahou Sensei Negima, which is as awesome as it ought to be::
Personally, I was very underwhelmed by the first couple eps of the anime, to my great disappointment since I'm a big fan of the manga. The character designs barely looked like Akamatsu's work, and the fanservice (which is kind of the point of most Akamatsu manga ^^;) was nowhere to be seen.
As to the character designs, that's also true of Love Hina, in my opinion. I don't know why his work just never translates over precisely, but I was pretty much expecting it, so it was a nonissue.
But the anime does indeed take itself more seriously than the manga does.
I've been enjoying Kamichu quite a bit, at least from the two episodes I've seen so far. It has an easygoing, summery feel to it, rather similar to Zettai Shounen. Have you seen any of that, by the way?
Nope, unfortunately I haven't had much time to watch stuff. ^^;;
