I am back from the land of no internet, which will (hopefully) have internet again soon. At which point I’ll have to start referring to it as Aberystwyth again. They were told it would all be up and running again on Wednesday, and when it wasn’t they changed the date to Saturday, but still nothing. I’ll have to make sure a stable internet connection comes with whatever house I end up living in, or if I have to arrange it myself then I’ll be sure to go with a reliable provider (if they exist)…
So in my last post I was unsure of what we’d end up talking about all weekend. And I failed to see the obvious solution: if we’ve not been watching the same anime recently, why not just marathon two series, two specials and two live action movies over two days? Brilliant!
So first up out of the series was The Skull Man, which started off well but was a bit confusing in the end. But Norio Wakamoto got the last word, so all was good. Then we watched Kemonozume, which was weird from start to finish, but probably made more sense than Skull Man thinking back on it. Toriko was one of the specials, and it was epic; the other was Cencoroll, not so epic. Yatterman made up the first of the live action films. Supposedly a nice, family friendly film, but some of the things those robots did were just wrong… Lastly, weirdest of all, was Survive Style 5+. Featuring Vinnie Jones as himself. And the most awesome looking house ever.
So yeah, we were left with plenty to talk about over food. And with all that stuff to watch + sleeping to do, meals were about the only free time we had left for talking. 😛
