pandorahearts03Alright!  And so now begins a series of multiple personality switches!  Ready for some migraines?
(though, I’m sure  we’ll be ok, since we got voices and movements and colors in anime)

I am happy!  They are following the manga 🙂
For those of you who are watching the anime for the first time (with no previous knowledge of the manga).  I hope you know by now who is this Raven which I kept talking about….  Ok, I give you another chance, guess it in the next episode then.

Anyways, Toriumi-san (Seiyuu for Raven) is having such a easy script this past 2 weeks for Pandora Hearts, almost a no brainer rehearsal I bet 😀  By the way, he’s one of the seiyuus that you totally cannot guess unless you read the credits.  I mean, would you have guessed that Chiba Susumu did the voices for Gintama’s Kondo, and at a 180 degree switch, he’s also the voice for Vampire Knight’s Ichijou.  Just like that 🙂
But Ishida-san is also such a great seiyuu!  In Pandora Hearts, he’s doing 2 different character’s voices.  One is Blake and the other is that nuigurumi (haha) on his shoulder 🙂
And of course, we have Naruto doing the voice of Oz :p   (Seiyuu:  Minagawa Junko) 
Huh?  What?  What did you say?  I’m not really recapping the episode?  Well then, read volume 1 of the manga 😀

pandorahearts2Why, hello there, mgmiamlffbfmgfm  Raven!
See what miracles tOOO can do? 😀  

I thought he’s going to appear around episode 3.  I guess someone couldn’t wait for him either, haha!
Ok, not much to comment, 2nd episode also follows manga fairly closely.  Though, I kind of wanted to see that part where Oz declared to his uncle about wanting to marry Sharon  (yeah, I was expecting him to say that instead of “where is Gil?” (¬_¬), so that was unexpected.  But, no big loss I guess.

The big bunny VS cult people was just in time for Easter!  hahaha!  But maybe you shouldn’t watch it with little kids whose innocent minds depict bunnies in pastel colors.  You’ve been warned, it’s not easy to calm down children who are crying in conjunction! 😀

…yeah…
As anime Sebastian’s seiyuu Ono Daisuke in the manner of Mikawa Kai (from Seto no Hanayome)’s voice, roll on the ground and…. 「目が!目が!!」
Just kidding :p   It’s not bad at all if you’re fan of Japanese idol stars.

My preference is still manga/anime (ceaseless nods)
Love the costumes though!

So…… will Pandora Hearts be faithful to the manga?  So far, ep.1 is, but anyways, throwing those thoughts aside, I can’t wait to see Raven!  (for those who haven’t read manga yet, he’s that cr…mffmmf..ca…fmfmchmfffmgrfff….  Ok, my fingers are not obeying my thoughts, just google if you’re curious, if not, then just sit back & relax and enjoy the anime episodes as they come along)  

With FMA2, I’m very glad to hear that they are going to be faithful to the manga Yay!  That’s what I heard, but, how faithful?  That movie gave me a sort of migraine, but aside from that….
Anyway, being a videophile, I’m very happy to see TV FMA2 in HD widescreen format, maybe they’ll reease bluray? 😀 

Come to think of it, these are also by Square Enix, which means we will expect high quality if not also expensive official goods on the horizon, which reminds me maybe it’s time to preorder the Nendoroid Sebastian soon, and Nendoroid Ciel too if they’ve started taking preorders….

Speaking of ‘butler’,  I was so looking forward to Hayate 2, but the first episode was so-so, so I hope they pick it up.  Artwise, I much prefer the Hayate 1’s art style, but I guess I shouldn’t be too picky, since it was already cool enough for them to bring in the new season 🙂
