Posts Tagged ‘Antique Bakery’

(Quick note: I am going through the fall season’s premieres and having a blast, so expect a couple of posts in the next days on that topic. Also, with any luck, I’ll be able to get my grubby little hands on subs for the last two episodes of Someday’s Dreamers before the Sun implodes… A man can dream, no?)

In retrospect I did not give Antique Bakery the attention it deserves, but in my defense, such a quiet, character-focused show makes poor blogging material. How do you compare the daily lives of four gay guys opening a Western-style cake shop to giant mechas or undead schoolgirls dual-wielding Uzis?

Do not watch this show if you're on a diet.

Nom nom nom after the break.

Tonight's MC: Kyouka on catnip!

Welcome, dear readers, to the first edition of the Midseason Awards, wherein I shall take a look at the best, worst, and most average shows of the season!

We’ve officially reached the halfway mark (mid-August) of the anime summer season. Long-running shows like Code Geass are entering the home stretch while newer offerings have by now revealed their true colors. I’ll post a comprehensive “midterm evaluation” for all the shows I watched either tomorrow or Monday; for the moment, however, let’s revel in this week’s crazy happenings!

Ooooooooooooh it just got good.

Oooooh oh oh oh can I ride can I ride it can I ride it please?

In other news, the Kaiba OST is decent. Nothing mind-blowing, mind you: a lot of tracks are mere variations (or “reinterpretations” if you will) of the same song but with a different rhythm or tint. And the soundtrack’s mood swings wildly between “dark, moody ballad” and “carnival jingle”… Yet playing “Carry Me Away” as I dash out of the office on a Friday night, my heart longing for the weekend, is an inimitable experience that I recommend if your iPod’s got a spare 80 megs you’ve been itching to fill.

Anyway. Clicky clicky for more piccys!

Everything you need to know about this week:

Let it wash over you, like gentle waves. Be calm. Be Zen. Be happy.

Okay, all right, there was a bunch of other shows too. But none of them had Karen treating Suzaku as a punching bag! Mind the spoilers if you click below.
