» Welcome Fall + Otakuness

強いて、美しい 男のお姫が

Never got the chance to welcome cold cold cold Fall, so Goodbye Summer and welcome Fall~~ ^^ I changed the Current picture to a fall picture too just to get in the mood Sadly is Fall = Rain and coldness~ but on the other side, everytime the seasons change new animes are released So I'm like any other person started on a lot of new series~ but the two which made the biggest impression on me were: 海月姫 [Jellyfish Princess] and 紙のみぞ知るセカイ [The world God only knows] They are both shoujo if I remember right and on 12-13 episodes only.

The World God Only knows

Taken from Wikipedia because of lack of proper English skills.. [x]

The story is about: Keima Katsuragi, a second-year high school student, is an avid bishōjo game player. He is known on the Internet as "The Capturing God" for his legendary skills to be able to "capture" any 2D girl in games. However, in his actual school life, Keima is known as otamegane, a derogatory portmanteau of the two words otaku and megane glasses) and is considered nothing but a gloomy geek with thick glasses.

At the start of the series, Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "capture" girls. When he accepts it, thinking it is an invitation to a game, a demon from Hell named Elsie appears! She asks for his cooperation to help her in catching runaway spirits. These spirits hide themselves inside the hearts of girls', and Elsie suggests that the only method to force the spirits out is by "capturing" the girls hearts—making them fall in love
with him and filling up the gaps which the runaway spirits hide in. Interested only in 2D girls, however, Keima is appalled by the idea and refuses the assignment as he has no romantic real life experiences whatsoever. Nevertheless, with the contract already agreed, Keima has no choice but to help Elsie no matter what as they will be beheaded if they fail.

It's not completed yet, neither the manga or anime~ At the moment there's 120 chapters and 5 episodes out~ The episodes comes every week~ >w< and I always look forward to watch it~ [Watch]

My favourite character is Elsie and Keima~ you actually don't see the other characters that much ^^; so I guess that's why. I also like how Elsie and Keima's relationship turns out later in the anime as brother and sister~ Elsie is really a little sister character and I really love that about her. She always do her best to help Keima and always work hard. ^^
I even thought about cosplaying her ÒwÓ)b I already have a wig which suit pretty well~ and I don't think her clothes will be very harsd to sew >_<; but I'll just wait and see if I can pull myself together.


Elsie appears~

Runaway spirit/loose soul~

I actually find him a bit cute there


I think I'll try to explain it this time on my own >u<;
The story is about a girl called Tsukumi. she is a jellyfish Otaku. She and her also Otaku friends live in an only woman apartment in Tokyo. Tsukumi and her friends refer to themself as nuns because they are boyfriendless and aren't into fashion, appearance and other stuff which a normal teenager would be into. A night tsukumi pass by a pet/fish shop where she sees a octupus jellyfish, but because it's in the same tank as a moon jellyfish it is going to die soon. Since Tsukumi is an otaku and have not spoken to a 'stylish' boy (the shopkeeper) before she fails when she tries to tell him the problem.

but Suddenly a really beautiful and stylish woman come by and help tsukumi save the jellyfish. The girl follow tsukumi home to the apartment where she is forbidden because she is a hipster/stylish person. Tsukumi tries to hide her but end up figure out that the stylish woman really is a cross-dressing guy.

I totally love this anime because it's about otakus and fashion *O* It's really cool~ I really love the clothes the 'stylish person' wears~ ^^ if I remember correct his name is Kuranosuke. Now I think about it, the Kura is used a lot. In Tsukumi's last name: Kurashita, Kuranosuke's first name and in the title Kuragehime~ I think it has something to do with Kuranosuke and tsukumi have the same look on jellyfish~ "so pretty just like a lace on a princess dress!" ^^

I also really love how the anime is drawn~ the art is キラキラ shiiiiining~ whereas I don't really like the manga's art as much. At the moment there are only 3 chapters out [Read] and 3 episodes~ >_<; actually I'm not sure if it's released every week or every second week. [Watch]
