Spoilers of ginormous proportions follow. Do not read unless you’ve watched Hachikuro ep7!

Don’t you just hate it when you have backlog of anime just glaring at you, waiting to be watched?

I’ve had days when I’ve not had any anime to watch — unbearable, I know — but an overload of anime is just as bad.

I’ve got several (complete) series just lying there on my hard drive taunting me every time I open up the folder(s) they reside in.

Working my way through it though, extremely slowly, but hey, I’m making some progress! Whoo!

Finished the first season (+ extra chapters) of Honey & Clover (hereby referred to as Hachikuro, live with it, it’s simply easier to type) the other day. First impression: what’ve I been missing all this time?! That was simply one of the best series I have watched! Evar! And now I need more! Thank god Season 2 hath started; I’d probably end up re-watching the entire first season if it weren’t for it.

Panel #1

Also managed to snag the trailer for the Live-Action movie (yay!) thanks to Garten over at memento. I have to say, I love their choice for most of the actors.

Panel #2

One look at Morita’s actor just left me thinking “eh?”. Hopefully he’ll be able to pull off Morita’s character well. Also, is it just me or does Mayama look a tad bit older than he does in the anime? Again — hopefully everything will work out (is it just me or am I sounding a bit too optimistic here..?).

Panel #3

Hagu-chan on the other looks super cute! Wonderful choice of actress, she fits the role perfectly!

Another thing — are anime character designs changing to fit the movie or something? I could have sworn that the characters in the anime now look more like their live-action counterparts than they did at the start of the series!

Where was I? — Oh yesh, backlogs, to give a tiny idea of what I’m facing, I currently have over 36 Gigs of anime left to watch. And this is increasing everyday ‘cos of the new season…thank god the summer hols have started!
