“Fortune Eye and Misfortune Eye”

It’s fitting that an episode about vision is particularly beautiful.

Kimagure Orange Road OVA

September 5, 2006 on 9:45 pm | In Kimagure Orange Road | Comments Off on Kimagure Orange Road OVA

There’s always a degree of risk involved in OVAs derived from popular TV series: after a conclusion they can seem unnecessary, or they can destroy the magic of a TV series through the law of diminishing returns.
This is not the case with Kimagure Orange Road: they do not interfere with the established continuity and, I’ll admit, I got high from inhaling the nostalgia fumes. If you can get nostalgic for a show even while watching it, it’s doing something right.

… Can you hear me, Major Tom?

With the second half of semester coming up, I’ve got less time to watch and write, because I don’t want to plunge into last second panics any more. Unless I contradict myself and do otherwise, I will no longer be flooding your aggregators.

In addition to this, my passion for the fansub scene is fading as I grow more and more nostalgic and swim in my pool of DVDs. If you could see how far behind I am on the season, you would weep. The tears would form another pool for me to swim in.

Long story short: I am not going to be writing 51 posts in September 2006.
