So I’m disrupting my exam studies to bring you this exclusive news that totally made my day: Kyoto Animation has announced that the Swimming Anime will be made into an anime entitled “Free” and it will be released this July! (Source here.) For those of you who are interested in the whole seiyuu scene, notable seiyuus voicing the characters include Tatsuhisa Suzuki who voiced Takao from Kuroko no Harem. In case you forgot about his lovability here’s a video:
Also, Mamoru Miyano who voiced Fushimi Saruhiko from K is one of the main seiyuus in this anime as well. Yes. MI. SA. KI.
Awesome graphics + awesome seiyuus make this anime a must watch. I really really hope that it doesn’t turn out like K though. Let there be kickass plot and characterisation that we can care about please.
So here’s some gratitutious smut in awaiting Season 2 of Kuroko’s Basketball. 😛
But I’m really overwhelmed with university projects and exams which all end by the first week of May or so. To make up for it, I promise that I’ll give a review on the hottest two anime of the year: Magi and Psycho-Pass. (I heard there’s loads of mind-fuck in Psycho-Pass but hey, it’s Urobuchi who directed Madoka and Fate Zero, what do you expect? XD) I’m thinking that if I have the time, I may go into some introductions of seiyuus, the seiyuu work culture, the anime industry as well as the politics behind what gets screen-lit and what not.
Also, I’m thinking of analysing the sociological implications and the power relations between ruler and subordinate, king and citizen in Magi as well. I’m not doing as much hard commentary as I had liked (and also, I’m not sure if that’s what you guys want) so do tell me what kind of commentary or reviews or posts that you are interested in and if it’s in the interest of this blog to do so, I’ll gladly comply. 🙂
Harem, I mean Haven. 😛

I wonder whether Akashi will make an appearance though? He does after all, appear pretty late in the manga. 😀 Let’s hope!
