Impressions on a Year 2007: Awesome OPs and EDs

Written by TheBigN 

Self-explanatory really, though my writing might not be. Whether because of the song, the visuals, or both, these intros and outros worked for me this year. Using youtube, I tried to get all raw versions, but some only had a subbed version. But that shouldn’t be too important, should it? 😛

Mokke, and What’s Inside of Us

Written by TheBigN 

I’m surprised at the relative lack of coverage that Mokke‘s getting from people here in the blogosphere, as I think it’s a pretty solid show.  After that first hiccup of an episode which apparently tried to show off Mizuki’s (the possessee) and Shizuru’s (the person who can see the possessors, among other things) abilities/burdens, as well as how dangerous things can be for the two sisters, the show’s been hitting it’s stride well.  If you watched more episodes of the series, you could see why the first episode didn’t work as well as the probable intent of the show.  With a show that feels sort of like a combination between Kamichu and Mushishi in both pace and feel, the danger in the first episode was presented way too urgently, which contrasts drastically at the slow pace that Mokke‘s more comfortable with, and it ended up not having the impact it should have (course there’s the whole “introducing the characters” think that didn’t work out quite as well either).  And it also didn’t show off what I think is the series’ strength; that is, a nice showcase of the human condition.

It’s almost criminal how quickly Mizuki catches stuff. Maybe she needs a sort of bubble for the spirits. :/
