Fure! Fure! Adorena-Escalation

Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun is made of win.  Mayu is the best kind of moe-blob, and her voice is just perfect.  Plus, she has pink hair.  I only wish that Megami Magazine would publish some posters of Mayu - I want her on my wall!

Speaking of Megami, I finally got time to cut the posters out of the January and February issues.  I've only had time to put a few of them up so far, but I'm going to have to find time to redecorate the rest of my room soon.  Down with Zero no Tsukaima, down with Moetan, down with Polyphonica, down with Nanoha StrikerS.  Up with Higurashi, up with Bamboo Blade, up with Kodomo no Jikan, up with Rosario to Vampire, up with Clannad.

Speaking of Clannad, I have the loveliest poster of Nagisa, Kyou and Tomoyo up on my wall now.  It's seriously beautiful.  Clannad is such a difficult series.  With Kanon, Shiori was a clear favourite ahead of the other girls.  With Clannad, I find it difficult to choose.  Nagisa is adorable.  Kyou is hillarious and shares a seiyuu with Izen from Gadget Trial.  Kotomi is voiced by Noto Mamiko.  Plus, Kotomi's "bonjour" was probably the best moment in anime ever.

Ah, KyoAni...  <3  If only they'd do a Negima series, then the world would be complete.  So far, we haven't had a single decent anime adaptation.  'Mahou Sensei Negima!', the original.. XEBEC.  Ugly as hell, gave Chisame green hair, made up a lame ending.  No thanks.  'Negima!?' by SHAFT.  Again, no.  Sure, it was funny, but the sheer amount of character assasination that took place was unbelievable.  Sure, it was a good comedy, but it wasn't true to the manga, neither by way of characters or plot.  'Negima!!', the live action drama currently in production?  Hmm... I haven't watched it since episode 7.  It was quite horrendous, really.  What the world *needs* is a long-form Negima anime, preferably by Kyoto Animation.  I'm not talking about 26 episodes, I'm talking about a couple of hundred.  The manga just hit chapter 201.  The cast have come on so far since the early days, it's difficult to look back without cringing.  I can't wait to see how this arc is resolved.  And how will Negi explain all this to Ako?

Still on the subject of Negima, my favourite Negi/X pairing has changed since the early chapters.  Negi/Chisame is the best pairing, followed by Negi/Ako.  Konoka/Setsuna is practically a given, and Asuna/Eva would amuse me no end.  Asuna and Setsuna's bath scene in chapter 200 (?) was brilliant, though :)

And on that note, it's time for me to read the latest chapter of Hayate no Gotoku! and get back to my Games coursework.
