Yeah...maybe the only roles they would be able to do is kids with country accents...oh well. At least it seems to have done well for Barakamon, both in quality of the show and it appears in sales (at least moderately successful right?).

Oh yeah, you know what other anime I didn't finish? Tasogare Otome X Amnesia. Ugghhh so much stuff to watch so little time...There's a week or two between the end of Summer and beginning of Fall right? Maybe I'll be able to finish some series then...

And you know who I wouldn't mind hearing more of? Hara Yumi, she voiced Yuuko in Tasogare Otome X Amnesia. I like her seductive!

Revenge is always good, XD

I hope they don't just live happily ever after... and that is way too long to wait, haha.

Hahalollawl | Yesterday, 7:27 AM
That's weird...Sorry about that, I thought I did look them up and didn't remember seeing them there. Anyways, THEY ARE KIDS! lol. Do you think they all have country accents in real life?

That Suzuko Hara (Naru)...she could have a bright future...

Hahalollawl | Yesterday, 5:15 AM
Out of curiosity, do you know if the other kids in Barakamon were voiced by kids? Like Kenta and the two boys who were catching bugs? LOL at that kid who was like, Sensei's not taking life seriously...And Naru's reaction to Sensei's present...Oh man...Can you even imagine an adult making that kind of a sound?

On a different topic, still no word from that Korean Channel about the episode counts for Fall?

SnazzGary | Yesterday, 4:40 AM
Holy crap...

Same here, I enjoy it, but...I really wanted to see who won the overall game in the end...

Hahalollawl | 09-15-14, 8:35 PM
Nozaki-kun is hilarious, but Barakamon is both hilarious AND kind of touching/heartwarming. It's not an easy combination to pull off, so for me, Barakamon has the edge. A matter of personal preference perhaps.

Also, Barakamon is a great example of how well it can work when an actual child voices a child...Naru's seiyuu is SO GOOD! She's so good at sounding like a child...BECAUSE SHE IS ONE! DUH!

And I guess I'm somewhat intrigued by the country folk in Japan and their lives, so even the setting in Barakamon is interesting to me. The school's not exactly unique in anime is it?

It's not like yukata is the most practical clothing either though right? If you're really concerned about practicality why wear the yukata at all? I thought it was more a traditional thing. Seems kind of weird to go part traditional part practical...kind of "chuuto hanpa" isn't it?

Just your luck, I might be one of the few people on MAL who can actually relate to what you described LOL. I studied Mandarin in China during a summer in a Chinese immersion program (so basically you're supposed to speak Chinese almost all the time). It got to the point where it was easy to mistakenly speak the wrong language even when you should be speaking English (i.e. when you speak to someone back in the U.S.). Basically, it seems like as the foreign language becomes sort of second nature it becomes less "foreign", it's not as obvious when you're using one or the other. When you're struggling with the language, it probably seems awkward so you notice it a lot more. So yeah, I get it. =)

BTW, I know it aired a while ago, but Barakamon episode 8 might be my favorite episode of the entire season. The grave visit part was so heartwarming, with some nice BGM too...THE FEELS! THE FEELS! Barakamon is somehow making a play for my favorite show of the seems so unlike me though! Perhaps my tastes are expanding...

In a season with 2 good mechas (at least in my opinion), is it possible that a slice of life show like Barakamon could be my favorite?!

Edit: Also, Miwa might be the first character I've seen wear shoes with a that...common? A country thing?

Hahalollawl | 09-14-14, 3:21 PM
I think the Japanese version was only used for the last episode maybe? I haven't seen it yet, so I don't know for sure...shouldn't you know this lol. And yeah, I think she sang both.

Did you get both on the same cd? Do you have a preference? =O

For me, I prefer the English version. It's just not quite the same without lyrics like "BE ALIVE, TAKE IT, I SURELY FEEL MY HEARTBEAT" and perhaps my favorite lyric "FLY HIGH, MAKE IT GET TO THE NEW WORLD THAT I SEEK" LOL...Ahhhh Hazukashii but I like that song so much LOL.

The Japanese version isn't bad, but it seems like (to me) the song was made with the English lyrics in mind, so they fit better with the rest of the song. The Japanese lyrics version doesn't seem to fit the notes of the song as well.

Hahalollawl | 09-14-14, 2:22 PM
Hey, did you know there's both an English and Japanese version of Euphoric Field?

Hahalollawl | 09-14-14, 10:07 AM
A warning about Tsukihime, apparently a significant number of people who have seen the VN seem to HATE the anime. I have NOT seen the VN. However, I think one problem might be they tried to fit it into one cour and so things might happen very quickly and it might not all make sense when you first watch it. I might watch it again because I don't think I understood everything. It seems to be quite complicated, and it might not all have been explained very clearly either...

BUT what was clear to me, was that I ADORED Arcuied Brunestud! She's a combination of beautiful, cute, and dangerous! To me, liking characters is perhaps the most important part of anime, so in that way, Tsukihime was very enjoyable!

As for ef - tale of memories, hmmm I was thinking of marathoning it, but maybe that's not the best idea...I think I remember trying to marathon a bunch of SSY episodes. Talk about a BAD IDEA (unless you want to be depressed)! Or maybe that's just me lol.

But that, to me, can be the sign of some of the BEST drama anime. When you feel kind of sick afterward, because the story was THAT ENGROSSING! It's kind of like that for me and Rurouni Kenshin Tsuiokuhen. And if it still gets you like that when you rewatch it, that shows how impactful it is...

Yeah Euphoric Field, such a good song. Might be my favorite Elisa song.

Edit: Oh, and I'll try to find those scenes. But I have a suspicion I can already guess what is going to happen in them based on what I know about

Hahalollawl | 09-14-14, 7:41 AM
Are you not interested in any of the Type-moon anime, or you just haven't had a chance? If you're not interested, then okay. But if you are at all interested in a romance involving a vampire princess, might I recommend Tsukihime?

AHHH I just realized something. ELISA, who did the Mahouka ED, also did the ef: A Tale of Memories OP!!! How could I forget that song!? You've heard that song right, Euphoric Field? One of my favorites...

Oh, and also ef: A Tale of Memories is another series I should probably finish...or start over from the beginning as I don't remember where I's worth finishing right?

Hahalollawl | 09-13-14, 9:28 PM
Are you familiar with type-moon's works? Like Tsukihime and Kara no Kyoukai?

Hahalollawl | 09-13-14, 5:48 PM
I was thinking about asking you about M3, as I kind of dropped it a while back. It wasn't like I'm never going to watch this again, but i guess I got a bit bored with it (how many times did they show that flashback where the kids are like "where are you?"). Also it got kind of weird with that crazy dude and what's her name (voiced by Yoko Hikasa).

I think I'm going to pick it back up soon, but i was wondering, does it get better?

As you probably remember, I was so hyped about M3 too...but I guess you could say the new season came with the new shows and M3 sort of got lost in the shuffle. Same with Captain Earth.

Captain Earth was a bit different though. It seemed to try to be serious at times but how am I supposed to take them seriously when they're talking about their libido!?

Perhaps they both deserve another chance. Or maybe it's more a reflection of my attention span... I don't know if you know, but i also stopped watching NagiAsu and Shinsekai Yori for a while (BLASPHEMY RIGHT?). In my defense Hikari was very annoying for a bit early on in NagiAsu, and the show itself had a bit of a lull (haha get it?) early on. After i picked it back up it got so much better lol.

SSY was interesting pretty much from the start, but I think I took a break from watching it after Shun died cause I was SO disappointed...and I think it might have been making me depressed...

Anyways sorry long comment. Suffice to say, I've dropped quite a few series that I liked after picking back up, so I'll probably give M3 another chance. Maybe captain earth too.

So I guess the difficult part of finding good shoujo romance manga (as with many things) is sifting through the crappy ones to find the good ones...

Hmmmmm??? Hulu is getting this one? For some reason I thought Hulu didn't get many airing anime... interesting...omoshiroi...
