Lately, I've been getting fandoms that I was in way back when. Some are painfully bad, like to the point where I questioned my past self's taste because, no. But there are others that make me smile even if they aren't at the level of brilliance that I remember. My parents have been sighing every time they see me watching all my old shows. But whatever.

I've noticed that a lot of my shows have really long battles (DBZ, anyone?). I want to see if recent shows are like this or if it was just part of the '90s. To do that I would actually have to watch some new shows. Any recommendations?

So in between watching Yu Yu Hakusho, Gundam Wing, Dragonball Z etc. I've been reading a lot of Supernatural fanfic. Which is a bit of a problem considering that I haven't watched the second half of Season Five. It got me thinking about how for some shows/books/films/whatever there's such a plethora of fanworks, and for others there's virtually nothing. Why is that?

Moving on to something else, I haven't forgotten about my book list. I've written mini reviews for the books that I've finished and my current thoughts on the ones that I'm in the process of reading. There are mild spoilers, but nothing big. I don't give away the ending or anything.

Book List 2010 )

Does anyone know if Bleach still worth reading? I haven't read it in a year or so, and I'm getting the itch to start reading again. What about Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, is that still good?

I just spent more than $100 on anime. *ashamed* I bought the season 1 box set of Bleach, the entire series of Trigun and S-Cry-Ed, plus the soundtrack to Angel, which is the only non-anime thing I bought. If my parents ever find out how much it all cost, they are going to kill me. But I couldn't resist!

So much pretty and shiny everywhere!

Plus, I figure since I got my mother hooked on Angel, Supernatural and Fullmetal Alchemist, I can get her hooked on these shows too.

HA! I finally finished my poetry analysis paper! Took me all day, but I did it. Five pages and the bibliography on Dulce et Decorum Est. I am proud to say that I only got distracted twice and once was my mother's fault. She wanted to see Fullmetal Alchemist, so I said yes. I have finally converted her to the awesomeness of FMA, next up are Bleach, Naruto and possibly Oofuri.

Also, since my mother adores mysteries, does anyone know of any anime that deals with mysteries? FMA appealed to her because of the little mysteries (such as what the homunculi were, their master, whether they would get their bodies back, etc)

Now, I'm off to print.
