Anime Weekend Atlanta 2005 is under a month away, and I’m already getting the jitters (well, I was last weekend as Otakon was underway and I was getting live reports about it on IRC).

I doubt many people I know read this, but yes, I will be attending it, no, I won’t be cosplaying, but yes, I will be wearing a silly hat all weekend. If you’re interested in meeting up with me, please EMAIL ME and I will make arrangements.

That is all.

So a couple of new anime series started this weekend: Speed Grapher and Tsubasa Chronicle.

First up is Speed Grapher. It’s… interesting, to say the least. It’s about a photographer and takes place in modern-day Tokyo (at least from what I can tell so far). That’s all I really know so far, as I couldn’t make it through the raw entirely (Koyasu Takehito as a character that looks like Voldo is disturbing in itself @_@).

Moving right along to Tsubasa Chronicle. It’s another massive crossover from CLAMP (the main characters are redone versions of Sakura and Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura, probably around 16 as opposed to grade-school) and seems to be pretty decent so far. I really dig the opening song, the single of which is coming out on my birthday, so I might add that to my existing CDJapan order. The ending song is a Maaya song, so it gets the thumbs-up by default. Kajiura Yuki is doing the soundtrack for the series, so we’re in for a good soundtrack, if anything. The only really thing I don’t like about the series so far is that they didn’t get the original voice actors for their roles (Tange Sakura isn’t playing Sakura, etc), so it kinda messes with me. But I’m sure I’ll get used to it over time.

And we now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging.
