I finally got around to watching Neon Genesis Evangelion, and what a ride it took me for. As each episode progressed, this anime went from mere nuances to the mecha genre to one of the most thought provoking pieces of work I have ever seen. Evangelion manages to deliver itself so that both the themes and messages it portrays are received on a very personal level, which often results in the anime meaning different things for different people. Many anime have attempted to approach different measures and forms that make an effort to provoke both contemplation and reflection of self on an individual basis, and some even do it well. However, I have never seen it executed as impressively or flawlessly as I witnessed in Evangelion. Neon Genesis Evangelion (and its glorious finale, End of Evangelion) is truly one of the most outstanding series I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I implore anybody who has to yet to see it to please do so.
Happy WataMonday everybody! It seems as though Watamote is slated for a home video release sometime this year, and hopefully sooner than later.Looks like that’s another box to check on the priority list. Then again, it is licensed by Sentai Filmworks, so the chance of it getting a dub is minimal at best. Well, at least the subs we all know and love will always be an option. If any other Watamote news comes up, I’ll be sure to post. Have a great day and don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
Happy WataMonday everybody! I hope everyone’s week had a good start! While there’s not too much news regarding Watamote, there are a few friendly reminders. Remember that Amazon currently has the third volume of the manga available for pre-order, which you can find here. It doesn’t come out until the end of April, but sooner is better than later. If the wait kills you and you’re looking to import, Volume Six comes out in Japan on March 22nd. I hope everyone has a wonderful day, and don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
Happy late Valentine’s Day, and happy WataMonday everybody! Chapter 54 of the manga has been out for the last week, so if you haven’t done so already, you can read it here. Beware though, it seems there’s finally a bit of character development. After 54 chapters, it seems as though Tomoko is finally (more or less) getting along with someone! If you’d like a little more context on the back story, make sure to read the spin-off manga Tomomote as well. I hope everyone has days and nights, and don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
It’s not anime related, but this is one of those things that really know how to take a few swings at your emotions. I feel like everyone owes it to themselves to hit to the play button.
Happy WataMonday everybody! I hope everyone is having a good one! Although it’s WataMonday, it’s still Monday. It’s can be a drag, it’s hard to look forward to, and quite frankly, it’s the week’s elephant in the room. If you were looking for a little bit of good news for you Monday though, it looks like the third volume of the manga is now up for pre-order in the U.S, and you can get it here. It doesn’t come out until April 22nd, so there’s still a bit of a wait. But that’s just another reason to re-watch the series,and you can’t argue with time well spent. I hope everyone has a wonderful WataMonday, as the Tomoko love is alive and well!
Happy WataMonday everyone! Sorry I’m nearly two days late posting; college can’t take the backseat for very long. However, I hope everyone is doing great and enjoying their WataMonday to its fullest! Today I was thinking about how Watamote (the anime) is licensed in United States by Sentai Filmworks in the United States. They announced a home video release of the series here in the U.S. for 2014, but have given no word on the dub. I personally don’t know how I’d feel a dub, especially considering the amazing vocal work already present in Watamote. However, English dubs have snuck up and surprised me before (most notably Hellsing Ultimate), so you never know. Do you guys think the series deserves a proper dub, or that it should be released with only its Japanese audio?
Even though it’s more than half over now, Kill La Kill has lost absolutely none of its momentum. Every week still delivers an outrageous, over the top joyride while managing to leave you begging for more. If you haven’t watched it yet, hopefully this glorious new opening will be an incentive.
Though it may be a few hours late, happy WataMonday everyone! As of today, the second volume of the manga has been out here in the west for one week, If your priorities are a bit skewed or you have some otherwise good reason for not yet having it in your possession, then you can buy it here. Also, for those of you who aren’t caught up with Tomomote, or would like to start it, you can read it here. For those you haven’t started it yet, it literally translates to “It’s Not My Fault My Friend’s Aren’t Popular”, and acts as a side story describing Tomoko’s junior high life. There’s not too much content on hand at the moment, and it takes a while for new chapters to roll in, but it serves as a wonderful companion to those who are experiencing the post-anime feelings of ambiguity. With that, I hope you all have a wonderful WataMonday! Don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
