Seriously, this fucking anime.

So, apart from some of the first generation Pokemon episodes and a couple of Yu-Gi-Oh! ones, Ouran was actually my first full-on experience of an anime. The same person who introduced me to Kingdom Hearts, Sam, introduced me and my sister Lys to this as well, a little while after she'd gotten us hooked on Kingdom Hearts.

As I was watching that first episode, these were my first thoughts: This is weird as fuck. What the hell is Sam having us watch? What is even all this?

We only watched a couple of episodes that day. But afterward? I looked up the rest by myself. It was weird, I was in complete culture shock, it made no sense---and yet I couldn't stop watching it.

My first time through the whole thing, I didn't have that much of an opinion of it. My brain was too busy trying to assimilate this crazy ass fucking world, and basically being overloaded in the process. But I eventually learned to roll with it. Then I watched it all again for a second time, and fell head-over-heels in love with the damn thing.

This show...it's really something special. It got me through my darkest moments of my depression, brightened days that had never been blacker for me. It was also what I consider to be my first, and the characters ended up having so much more depth than one would ever believe from the beginning episode, and for all of this, Ouran High School Host Club will always be my favorite anime. :)

Alright, now that I've seen everything season 1 has to offer, it's time for me to record my thoughts. Format is from all of my other show reviews. Spoilers below the cut, as always. :)

Overall, I liked the show, but I found that quite a few elements troubled me. Plus, all the focus on Snow White characters just tires me. :/

So, this is where I am at the moment, regarding TV shows: I'm watching Supernatural in real time, with the Marathon with my IRL friends on weekends when we can, so I'm watching at least one episode a week. I've already watched all of the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood episodes available on Netflix, and am waiting for the last two DVDs to become available at the library so I can check them out and continue watching.

So, in the mean time, I'll be indulging myself by watching the first season of Once Upon a Time that's on my Netflix, and possibly start consistently keeping up with the second season in real time.

As of this moment, I have watched three episodes: the first episode of season 1, the first episode of season 2, and the episode that appeared last Sunday, Oct 28. Apart from that, I've spoiled myself for bits and pieces of other things, mainly from TV tropes, but also because the season 2 opener came with an hour-long recap of the previous episodes, so while I didn't totally pay attention to that (my mom was watching it, and I only started actively paying attention when a Certain Great Love of Mine showed up), I did absorb a few plot points. So, below my eventual LJ cut, there will be lots of spoilers, and unfortunately, I can't guarantee how spoilery they acutally are, you know what I mean?

Anyway, the purpose of this particular post is just for me to write about some thinky thoughts that I have, that may or may not have much to do with anything.


Okay. Let's talk about Snow White.  )

So! I'm done! And let me just say, all of the confusion of the earlier episodes is worth the fantastic way everyone and everything comes together in the end. I'm just a sucker for BIG DAMN HEROES continually showing up to kick ass.

I'm posting this because I feel bad about how I'm seemingly always dumping my Supernatural raving onto poor R-girl when she probably wants to know nothing about it. *sweatdrop* (I'm truly sorry, and if I'm making you uncomfortable, please tell me to shut up. ^^)

I'm thinking of making some sort of post to chronicle a bit of me and my friends' Supernatural marathon, but I'm still debating that. So for now, as we're done with season 1, and that was the first time I'd rewatched it, you get my Top Five Favorite Episodes of Season 1, along with my Top Three Least Favorites (because I want to be more positive than negative at the moment). After that, I'll probably muse a bit about season 2, what are my current favorite episodes, and then later after we're done see how much my opinions change.

Spoilers will be beneath this cut, obviously, and possibly up through season 6.

Come on. Look at that face. He really is adorable, isn't he? And, for the record, I highly enjoyed picking out that picture. :)

Anyway. Sooooo, the TV show Supernatural has been eating my brain. For the curious and those who don't know, this TV series is centered on Dean and Sam Winchester, brothers who travel around the United States in a '67 Chevy Impala carrying on their "family business" of hunting the...well, supernatural, and saving lives. As the series goes on, they're still always willing to make a stop to settle some recalcitrant ghost, ghoul, vampire, werewolf, wendigo, or any other myth, but the brothers are pushed ever deeper into a war between Heaven and Hell, and eventually taking on the denizens of Purgatory as well.

As of right now, I am updating this because I'm now actually watching the show in real time, and so I've completely watched through season 7, and am following along with season 8.

Therefore, spoilers up through season 7.

Alrighty then! Let's kick this baby off! ^^
