Anime I am currently watching.

I'm currenty watching Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions -Heart Throb-.  This is the second season of Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions which is also nicknamed Chu-2.  It's actually a pretty good series.  I didn't think that a romantic comedy would be my type of anime, but I'm enjoying it.

Before this, I watched The World God Only Knows and also The Devil is a Part Timer.  I'm waiting for the The World God Only Knows: Goddesses to come available on Hulu.  (The God Only Knows Oriatorio is awesome to listen to!)  I enjoyed The Devil is a Part Timer, but I had issues with the fact that the lead was a genocidal maniac that seemed to turn a new leaf and everyone thought that all was good.

I was having trouble getting into The Irregular at Magic High School.  I'm not a big fan of "sibling love" as it squiks me out.  And the hero was just becoming a type of "I know what to do every time and I'm better than you" type.  It didn't feel like the fights were much of a challenge.  I was hoping that I would like it as it seems to be a long series, but...

I'm currently subscribed to Sword Art Online II and The Awesomes on Netflix.  They are shows that I am enjoying.

I want to find more Anime to watch.  I prefer action and I'm not a big fan of Fan Service.  I'll have to make a list of anime that I've watched before and split it between what I like and dislike later.

Comments available at A View from the Porch.

I saw that Tam left a post open for comments.


No comments so far.  I did not leave a comment.  1) I have nothing intelligent to say on the subject.  2) People who know her and that are more well spoken should use the opportunity, not odd people like I.

I know my animation.

I am a fan of foreign films.  Especially quirky foreign films.  I'm also a fan of foreign music.  And by foreign, I mean by not produced in the USA.  I'm sure someone out there would complain if I did not point that out.

Now, I don't claim to be an expert in any way, shape or form.  I just enjoy what I enjoy and I keep it to myself.  Mostly because I don't know many people who really "get" my interest, or they know so much that I can't keep up with them.  So to sum it up, I'm an amateur foreign film enthusiast and all I really care about is what interests me.

But I like it when my prior knowledge meets up with my current knowledge.  Flipping through Hulu, I ran across a trailer for this french animation.  "Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart."  I saw the backgrounds and the animation and I immediately knew it was dubbed.

Why does this interest me, you ask?  (Other than the fact that it's foreign and that it's animation...)  It's because I recognized it, even though I'd never seen it before.  I did a quick Google search and I was right!

I had run across a video that Dionysos had done of their song ""Tais-Toi Mon Coeur" several years ago.  I remember playing it so often online.  (I'm currently trying to find a good HD version of it online.)  But the fact that I can tie a movie trailer in with a video that I've not watch in several years impresses me greatly.

Would it impress anyone else?  I doubt it.

And Tam has hung up her hat.

Yesterday I noticed that A View from the Porch was locked down.  Turns out that apparently Tam had a stalker.  No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money and Shall Not Be Questioned have info on the incident.

I'm not going to write too much on her decisions to stop posting.  Others can say it better than I.  As a matter of fact, they already have.

What I can say is that View From the Porch stood at the top of my must read daily blog list.  It was always the first blog I read.  The constant updates and excellent writing made it a lot of fun to read.  Her updates will be missed.

"A View From The Porch" is blocked.

Oddly enough, A View From The Porch will not open.  It has apparently been set to "This blog is open to invited readers only."

I wonder what happened.  I'm sure that I'll find out soon enough.

I guess if I really wanted to know what is going on, I'd head on over to The Firing Line.  Tam often posts over there, so I'm sure that someone will have the details up quickly.
