The omake continue to trickle out from Japan. 

There are times that I love being an anime fan.

Kanon Project 2: Dead. Kanon Project 2a: Alive.

So, remember that AMV I announced a few months back, using Kanon 2006 and a track by The Smithereens?

It's dead.  Dead dead dead dead dead.  The proverbial doornail is more alive than that idea.  Bereft of life, it rests in peace.  It's joined the bleedin' choir invisible.  This is an ex-AMV concept.  I just couldn't make it work in my head, and I couldn't bring myself to force through it while clipping.  As a result, it stagnated and eventually, I gave up on it altogether.

But, as Gainax taught us, for every Death, there is a Rebirth.  And so it is in this case.  A few weeks ago, I heard the new single (does anybody under the age of 30 still call them 'singles' anymore?) from the Foo Fighters, and something went *click* in my brain.  Not an "...Angel" level click, but a click nonetheless.  So, from the ashes comes this:

I'm working on another Kanon '06 AMV... and this time, it's for real.  Again.

I can hear the groans of Ubu, Astro, and Pixy from here...

I'm In LUV!

It's been a long, long couple of months here at The Pond.  Of course, there's the whole F1 thing, and work has been long hours on top of long hours, with some more long hours tacked onto the weekends to boot.  I've barely had time to watch any of the new anime season at all.

But there HAS been two shows I've watched so far... and I'm in love with both of them.

The first is called Minami-ke.  It's the story of three sisters: Chiaki, a too-smart gradeschooler, Kana, the hyperactive middleschooler, and Haruka, the high schooler.

Chiaki, Kana, Haruka.
So far, the show seems to be nothing more than a look into the life of three sisters.  Nothing exciting, but a lot of fun and some laughs.  It sort of feels like Azumanga Daioh, honestly: it doesn't have a plot except for life, but it's enjoyable to see the sisters go through life... and it's FUNNY without trying to be.  In two episodes, I've laughed out loud more than I did during the entire run of Lucky Star.  Scenes like this one:

      "Geez, not again..."                 "I believe I can fly..."           "Not the teapot..."
...just make you chuckle, or laugh, or smile.  It's just that sort of show, and I'd rather watch this than any number of Gundams or Shanas.  I'd happily recommend it to just about anybody.

But the show that's completely captured my heart isn't Minami-ke:
