So like... I'm getting back into anime again... I blame it solely on the fact that there are quite a few interesting series this season. My load won't nearly be as large as it once was I'm going for roughly five series (six this season if I end up liking all the ones I'm gonna try) and then maybe one or two older series depending on if they're streaming on a legit service.

So for this season I'm going for...

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - I solely blame my reinterest in anime-watching on this series. Thank goodness someone is streaming it though or I probably would have drug my feet on watching it. After seeing the first episode I have to give it a thumbs up. Maybe it's just because I've been so long without seeing the first series or been so long without seeing anything... I was totally pleased.

Eden of the East - Kenji Kamiyama + Production I.G. + Chika Umino + Pantless Male Lead = I can't resist. You had me at Pantless Male Lead. (Can he dethrone Princess Tutu's Mythos as the Pantless Wonder?) Everything I've heard has been awesome. The lack of pants is just a bonus.

Guin Saga - My inner fantasy nerd took notice of the series, but I wasn't expecting much based on what little digging I did. I've heard some good things so I'll go for it.

Basquash! - What's that you say? Mecha basketball? And I still haven't heard anything negative?

Ristorante Paradiso - A fun romance series is mandatory for my new anime watching schedule.

La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~ - What can I say? I enjoyed the first season and it's conveniently streaming on crunchyroll. I am weak. Also it's apparently only two episodes long so... I really can't resist.

As for the older series... I'm in a toss up between finally getting around to Kaleido Star and Natsume Yuujin-Chou. I might break down and go for both if I end up not liking one of the series I'm gonna try out.

So it's been a while since I did a proper update so I'm gonna try and hit the high points...

School: Finally started using MediSoft in Medical Office Procedures. It's not as bad as I was expecting, but I still haven't hit the simulations yet so that could change. Competency testing for us is this coming Wednesday. Class trip to the OKC Omniplex/science museum is on April 28th. I also finally enrolled for next year and hopefully I'll get to be a full time student this time.

Movies: Finally saw Twilight... Peter Facinelli as a blonde is just so wrong. I find it kind of funny that I saw two movies in less than a week where the best part involved a Muse song. Also I will not lie... I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still for Jon Hamm and Jon Hamm only. I honestly couldn't tell you much that happened when he was on screen. The scruff was super hot.

Books: I bought the next three Sookie Stackhouse books (Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, and Dead to the World). I'm almost finished with the second Night Angel book. So good. I love a series where I can actually end up liking characters I once despised. Vi has gone from "snoozefest" to "how wonderfully bitchy". Also I must stop myself from shipping Kylar and Vi since I know he won't end up with her. I also bought Confessions of a Shopaholic couple of weeks ago.

Television: Stupid Kal Penn liking stupid politics. This season of House has been so... all over the place. There's only a handful of episodes left and while I'm really not looking forward to yet another "omg Cameron is like totally in love with House!" thing or a "House could have been super happy with [insert female character here], but he pushed her away because he's a miserable wreck" thing we all know he can only be happy with Wilson, I am interested in seeing what they do for the finale. (Hopefully there will be Wilson goodness.)

I also gutted and restuffed my section of our Netflix with all the TV I've been putting off watching. I'm working through Jeeves and Wooster right now (I finished season one. I'm once again totally smitten with both Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry.) and then it's on to Mad Men and Supernatural.

Video Games Persona: I'm in October with Persona 3. It is such fucking bullshit that you only get the best character for a month. I'll miss his badassness and the completely awesome way he used his Evoker. I still don't know how I'm going to manage The Answer side of P3 since it's equivalent to the hard version of The Journey. I expected epic fail from me though.

Manga: I'm still not caught up on Fullmetal Alchemist or One Piece. I am caught up on Reborn! though and I must say I'm glad the girls are getting their say. Though Haru is still a million times better than Kyoko. I'm also current with xxxHOLiC (I only care again because Doumeki and Watanuki are staying with each other now) and Tsubasa (What the fuck has happened to this series? Just tell me if Kurogane and Fai go off to be gay ever after so I can stop caring about this headache inducing clusterfuck.)
