October 19th, 2008
Finally got around to watching the first Death Note summary/special. I've on had it on my computer since May! But yeah I'm not really fan of these summaries, mostly I suppose because I compare them (perhaps unfairly) with the full length series, I'd probably enjoy them more if I reversed the order in which I watched them.
It also didn't help that the subs stopped working so I'm watching this 2 hour long thing raw but seeing as how I've seen it before I didn't mind too much as I knew the jist and was able to enjoy it visually. It reminded me just why Death Note had me so hooked, especially the Higuchi car chase (probably the music helping). But I don't intend to watch the second one, nor the FMA summary or the remaining 3 (?) Evangelion 'Rebuilds' without someone else putting it on for me and being too lazy to stop watching. Plus I'm not finished NGE yet anyway.
I basically wrote all this down so I'd have a blog btw.
