marking time

29 Jan


i can’t get enough of School Rumble *grins fatuously*. I must have watched this series (seasons 1 and 2, and 1 OVA) 3 times already, but each time i see kenji harima‘s idiotic and increasingly manic attempts to tell tenma tsukamoto (one of anime’s most dense and oblivious female protagonists ever!) about his feelings, i just double over in laughter. and, of course, it doesn’t help that as a school delinquent, kenji harima has to maintain his tough-guy street cred.

no, i’m not just talking about harima-kun‘s goofy attempts (although his facial expression is worth a guffaw or two every now and then). i’m referring to all those crazy mishaps (murphy’s law to the max) and misunderstandings that crop up like crazy whenever he wants to get serious. poor guy. (*topples over in mirth*). he not only has to contend with Tenma-chan’s slow mental processes, he also has to deal with School Rumble‘s other equally maddening characters who are determined and ready to think the worst of him — tenma tsukamoto included.

Practically everyone in School Rumble likes somebody who just happens to have the hots for someone else. compounding this hilarious merry-go-round is the fact the object of desire is usually unaware, or unimpressed, of being admired from afar.

i’m still awaiting my latest anime purchases: All-Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku-Nuku, which features my favorite seiyuu (megume hayashibara) and Elf Princess Rane. both titles have been around for a while but i just couldn’t find a copy of them in local stores.

pretty soon, if i have enough time i’ll probably start on Death Note (if i can get a decent copy from my supplier) and Alice Academy. i can’t help but be dragged by this bandwagon of Death Note fans who keep on pointing out how much they loved this series. hmm… we’ll see


*sigh* i wish i had all the time in the world to watch (and re-watch) all of my favorite anime shows. what with my job and 3 other blogs, which leaves me barely enough time to do anything else, i’m usually left struggling to find anything decent to say about my favorite past time.
