Being Asian, the “real” New Year’s has never been as important to me as the Lunar New Year (for 2009, it’s on January 26th), but I guess Planetes is a pretty good series to have reviewed for the new year regardless. I was thoroughly impressed with the depiction of space here: it is amazing, and everyone that considers themselves any kind of sci-fi fan should definitely check it out. It’s the future, guys!
A lot of people seem to recommend Infinite Ryvius for those who like Planetes, probably because Goro Taniguchi directed both of them and both deal with space, but I’m having a hard time moving on with the former. I’m four episodes in, can’t relate to any of the characters, and don’t really feel moved towards caring about their well-being. It’s kind of frustrating. I think finishing it might depend entirely on how much I want to review it because I hate reviewing series I haven’t seen in their entirety; it always feels like I’m missing something that way.
The series I’m breezing through now though is, surprisingly, Ouran High School Host Club, lol. I’ve avoided the series thus far mostly because the premise didn’t interest me. I hear their fanbase is pretty annoying too, but I don’t really concern myself with that usually. As it is now, I’ll probably be finishing off the series tonight and hope to have a review by the time classes start again on Monday. v_vV I’m flying to New Orleans on Friday though, and carpooling the ten hours from there to Savannah on Saturday, so maybe not. We’ll see! I’m sure nobody cares but me! 8D
