Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni was actually subbed a while ago, but somehow eluded me until today. I remember noting it as the anime with the picture of the spooky girl from anidb. I don’t think I’ve ever been satisfied with a mystery/drama anime, but I decided to try this one out anyway.
I was minding my own business at ANN, when I saw a review for a manga called “Chibi Vampire.” But wait, the girl on the cover looks exactly like Karin! Could this be a Karin knockoff!? Upon closer inspection, it appeared that Chibi Vampire is the North American name that Tokyopop has given Karin.
Yume Tsukai was on my Spring 2006 anime preview list, but it kinda fell off the radar due to the huge number of quality shows already out. I finally checked out the first episode. So is this anime as dreamy as the name implies? Is this show a sleeper hit, or a real yawn!? Okay, enough with the puns, onto the post:
The Third – Aoi Hitomi no Shojo is another anime that went under my radar this season. I’ve been watching the first episode of pretty much every show this season so I don’t miss any gems. So did my intensive screening policy pay off with The Third?
