My Guilty Pleasure #5 - Anime

Well, I did say I'll talk about movies in this MGP, and I intended to... before I got addicted to Vampire Knight and Vampire Knight Guilty. Yup, in two days I've watched all 26 episodes.

My relationship with anime is almost non-existent. I honestly don't know why. I like Asian movies, martial arts and cold weapons, so it should be match made in heaven.

However, the one thing I never could understand is the necessity to portray women as these cute little baby dolls with tiny squeaky voices, and I'm not just talking about anime and manga, but Asian culture in general...

Well, I'm happy to say Vampire Knight made me disregard all that. I got hooked, I got addicted and I plan to watch Blood The Last Vampire and Vampire Hunter D next.

What did I like is hard to describe: oh, the sad sad eyes, the deep sense of Honor, the beautiful emo boys, brilliant colours and covert sensuality of it all...

Matsuri Hino's art is absolutely amazing, I just can't stop looking at it, and the characters are so complicated, - Zero changes his mind every half an hour, and Kaname turns from a simple prince of emo to a diabolical mastermind who plays everyone like a chessmaster. Yum!

Yeah, I'm hooked. Sue me! *grinning*

Anyone loves anime and can recommend me a very good one?

What's your guilty pleasure of the month?

Oooh, I haven't watch Vampire Knight. Looks great.
I really recommend Hellsing (one of my faves), Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis: Evangelion. All fantastic animes. :P

i didn't watch many animes - i don't really know why, because i loved those i watched ^^
but at the time i watched them i really loved escaflowne - great anime and music. it's older but really worth it.

Elfen Lied, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ergo Proxy. Seriously, if you find the right anime it's fantastic!

Oh i don't watch Anime a lot, but i love manga. As for Vampire Knight i enjoyed the Anime way more than the Manga. The manga was killing me slowly so i stopped reading. To bad, i always wanted to know what will happen with Zero.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
