Being the T.A. for an anime/manga college course has its ups and downs-- I think I've mentioned that I'm doing that? Yes, I must have somewhere in between my recent ramblings about Sherlock Holmes. *Checks* Okay, maybe not, but I am! And this week included a major up!

My first time manning the class all on my own went a little shakily thanks to a particularly annoying student and thanks to the professor for putting me in charge of a ridiculous, experimental, class-wide group project that even he expects to fail-- "So I thought of putting you in charge of it!" he tells me. Yeah, thanks, dude.

But my second time up was simple as pie since I basically just had to put them into their various groups, keep them on task, and throw out the occasional bone. Took advantage of what will no doubt be the only opportunity I will ever have for showing college students clips of Bleach. What? I had to make sure they understood the difference between a RAW, a dub, and a fansub! Well, I guess I didn't really have to... Oh, hush! Don't judge me!

Anyway, I can now say that I adore those rascally little nerdlets (with some notable exceptions). Never has there been a nerdier class, y'all. I had a blast whilst wandering around the various groups and basically geeking out like whoa with them. When I showed random clips of Bleach, I even got several groans to the tune of, "But that's from the filler arc!" or "That's a spoiler!" D'awwww, nerdlets.

I have about two weeks to prepare an entire class on Ouran High School Host Club. Lord help me.

Mmn... sushi restaurant and anime shopping. Good times.

Loves me some "shopping" around the internet and Netflicks for new anime. It's a whole new bag of fun for me to sort through. So far...

Animes I Couldn't Get Into:

*Neon Genesis Evangelion (a.k.a rocking-back-n-forth-in-a-corner-and-trying-to-think-of-something-happy-show)
*Eureka 7 (apocalyptic rainbows + fairies + robots = not for me)
*Cowboy Bebop (don't know why, but couldn't bring myself to care)
*Ghost in the Shell (Wha?)

Animes I'm Totally Hooked On:

*Bleach (obvious reason)
*Samurai Champloo (need no reason)
*Ouran High School Host Club (sugary crack)
*Fruits Basket (sugary crack + enough cute to kill)

Animes I'm Still On The Fence With:

*Gunslinger Girls (intriguing so far as babies with guns should be, but perhaps too disturbing because it's babies with guns)
*Death Note (everyone loves it, but I can't bring myself to watch it yet)
*Naruto (seems to be the cornerstone of anime, but has no obvious appeal whatsoever to me)
*D.N. Angel (stupidest thing I've ever seen, but I just keep watching it)
*Blood+ (really need to start at the beginning)
