Finished Noein yesterday, which was so much better once I had gotten into it properly. I had originally started watching it a couple of years back, but then dropped it after two or three episodes. Once again, it takes a good couple of episodes to get into it, but now with quite a bit of spare time (thank god, summer holidays!) I caught up and watched them all. Like Gurren Lagann before it (finished last month) I watched loads of episodes each day, because I couldn't get enough. Was a great show, and I'm looking forward to watching the remake of Testuwan Birdy, also by director Kazuki Akane.

Still watching the regulars this series, Code Geass R2 continues its plot-twist-every-second madness, Macross Frontier continues to amaze me (I haven't seen any of the other Macross series, but I've read their synopses). Soul Eater has been quite good - although it hasn't quite struck a chord with me yet - although the production values are sweet. Quite a lot of people, from what I've read, haven't enjoyed Allison to Lillia so much, and although it is annoyingly slow, I'm still finding it fun, and watch as soon as the fansub is out. Speaking of which, I want to continue watching Real Drive, which is currently on episode 15, but the latest episode I've seen fansubbed is number 3, so... got quite a lot of catchup to do there. Bleach continues to strive on its filler episodes - they are getting better, I must admit, but I still yawn.

Bought Ghost in the Shell 2nd gig on DVD a couple of weeks back, and will be watching that too, but that's also a bit of a backup choice, in case my internet dries up - now that I'm back home with my family and on a slower connection (25mbps internet connection in Sheffield was awesome!).

Might start watching Paranoia Agent again, on request from my friend who recently watched it, and wants me to catch up. Now that I've finished with Noein, perhaps I can fit that in! And that's about it for my first entry on my MAL blog. Thought I might as well write about what I'm watching and what I'm enjoying, so, there you go!

I'm looking forward to starting my Best Buys job (training tomorrow) only because I can think of such perks as anime buying! I really really want to get Ghost in the Shell again!
