What do I watch nowadays?
A list of anime series I watch these days includes:
- Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid - an excellent dark sequel to the Full Metal Panic, without the parody style of Fumoffu. The last episode will be broadcast in Japan tomorrow, and hopefully the Anime-Shrine fansub will be available on Friday.
- .hack//Sign - the unusual Matrix- or Total Recall-like cyberpunk in the fantasy RPG-style settings, and with an outstanding music by Yuuki Kajiura.
- Mai-Otome (or Mai-Z-HiME; I think it is still not clear how to translate it) - a story with similar characters to Mai-HiME - just started to air in Japan, and fortunatelty the Static-Subs are doing a fansub again. First episode is out so far - it looks like it is a fantasy-style series (magic + fantasy + school life = Harry Potter?). I hope that they will not put in so much filler episodes as in Mai-HiME and that they will not screw up the ending as in Mai-HiME.
- And maybe I should also watch Saishu Heiki Kanojo OVA - a side-story to the brain-drilling and tragic series Saikano - another wannabe gem of the year 2005.
