CANAAN ep 03 and so forth…
It’s a sad thing, but I guess it had to happen. Five minutes into the third episode of Canaan I paused the video, sighed, and dropped the show. I took a look at a couple of scenes later on but I didn’t see anything that would change my mind.
I can stand silliness, actually, I enjoy silliness, but when a show makes me cringe then I know it’s time to let go. The dude at the bar talking about “women’s hearts” made me cringe.
The terrible thing is that I’m left without a new show this season. Shin Mazinger and Jewel Pet are doing very well coming off of last season and…well, no comment on You-know-who… I’ve been scanlating like crazy so that’s good. Keep an eye on The Rabbit Reich, July is WTF month!!!
We put out a scanlation of Aya Hirano’s Space Ship EE. Hirano’s art is museum-worthy (I know because she shows up in galleries all over the place) so this is definitely worth taking a look. There’ll be another very artistic piece coming out in the next few days, plus a wacky tale from a writer dear to this blog, and an extremely wacky 4-koma involving Nordic spears…
In the meantime, the first volume of Acony is almost done (I translated chapters 3-6 and am now in the process of doing 1-2, which I’d skipped earlier because another group had already done it). Another of our translators is working on Okama’s Food Girls. Plus starting next month we’ll start up yet another series, whose author name I won’t give away but it sorta rhymes with Reggie Math Zoo Moe Toe.
OK, back on topic…Is anyone watching any amazingly awesome new series this season???
