2008 in Review: Picks of 2008

2008 in Review

Another year passes. Man, it’s hard to believe I’m already in to my 9th year of being an otaku as well as my 4th year of blogging. Time sure flies. I’m now well over 1500 posts with nearly 16k comments, and it’s thanks to everyone’s support that I’ve gotten so far.

This year was marked by an increased number of good shows, but surprisingly, it wasn’t as “happening” as last year. To put it in another way, while the average increased, the top end of the bell curve wasn’t as high as last year. Nevertheless, this year still had its moments.

My choices here aren’t particularly graded using a strict measure, it’s more of an overall rating of shows of this year that I greatly enjoyed in one way or another, so please view it as that rather than a solid indicator of quality.

Of course, being a mere mortal with a real life outside of the Internet, I will inevitably miss a few gems here and there, so feel free to voice up any other shows that you, my dear reader, believe I should have watched and not missed for this year.

With that said, here’s the list.

The Kannagi 10 ending song is… amazingly addictive. Don’t you hate those catchy ad songs that get really stuck in your head even though you don’t want them to? Dammit.

On another note…

Nagi-sama supports Blu-Ray!

LOL cocktease episode. Not bad for a filler I suppose.

Short summary; Jin makes Nagi mad and she barricades herself in his closet. He tries desperately to get her out, all the while hinting he’s sorry for “what happened when you were in the bathroom” and what not. Tsugumi is pretty much useless. Zange comes over to seduce Jin. Takako and Shino come over to join the fun and even Daitetsu barges in. Jin’s white knight comes in the form of Akiba-kun and we find out that Jin accidentally recorded another show over one that Nagi hasn’t watched and Akiba is in possession of said show. Akiba proves to be useless however when he records it in BD-R and Betamax when Jin’s house only has a VCR.

Loved how the episode kept us guessing on what happened with Jin and Nagi “in the bathroom” and why Jin specifically requested Akiba-kun to help out. Then practically the whole cast come over at first to busybody. Zange’s “anna koto ya, konna koto ya” antics was so Zange and I lol’ed at the “cockroach-cam” in the episode. Did felt a bit disappointed when they revealed the actual incident causing the the situation in the show.. I expected something more “ahem ahem ahem”.

Gotta LOL at Akiba’s Sony-loving mania and recording the stuff on BD-R and Betamax. Subliminal product placement or sponsor request? Sony should know if they want BD to be embraced by the masses, they should do something about RM 2000 players/writers and the RM 50 discs first even if they try to steal their way in to the hearts and minds of us otakus.

The ED got replaced with a trailer sequence of Mahou Shoujo Loliko-chan (or smth), the show that Nagi is infatuated with. Man, it looks so f*cked up for a mahou-shoujo show. Sadly no special Nagi art this week.

Finally, this week’s ending illustration is Nagi rendered by Aoki Ume-sensei. Nutbladder Nagi \o/!
