UQ Holder is already awesome. Also status.

UQ Holder, if you haven’t heard of it by now, is Ken Akamatsu’s newest series, and it’s also a sort of sequel to Negima!

To tell the truth, I’m disappointed that he hasn’t taken the opportunity to tie the Mao-chan-verse into the Negimaverse.  We’ve already established that Mao-chan takes place a few years after Love Hina, and so has Negima! so the only question remaining is if Mao-chan takes place before or after Negima!

Anyway, next Bardass! chapter is going to be done within the next couple of days, I’m sure.  For the first time in a long time, I’m actually looking forward to Millennium Body (making a sensible outline will do that).  Also, there will be a significant PSO2 status dump because I’ve been playing a LOT of it recently.

SacAnime Summer 2013 is coming up this weekend.  I don’t feel like donning the Gendo outfit this year.  I was planning to go as Hananakajima Masaru, but I realized there was no chance I was going to not wear my glasses, and my integrity prevents me from sullying a costume like that.  It sucks to be limited to characters who wear glasses.  So, I’m going as the main character of Zettai Hero Project.  I’d love to do another original commission, but chances are I’ll only have enough money on hand for a single-character portrait.  So if you have a favorite character, I’ll take it into consideration in my decision.  If I had the money, I would actually commission a Millennium Match picture set in Sweet Tears.  The current front runners I’m considering for a commission are Meuri and Marie Antoinette.

Stuff I’m watching/reading/playing: Because no Anime Review today

The weekly Anime Review was started to get rid of my backlog, and it’s surprising how short that backlog is considering I’m only getting to one title a week.  I need to get some more crap.

Anyway, here’s the stuff I’m following now in various forms.  I’ve noticed that some of the titles I’ve picked up are similar to projects I’m working on, and I’ve thankfully gone past where such a revelation would depress me.  Similarities are everywhere, but similar is not same.  Though I do have to admit, it sometimes makes me think there really is a morphogenetic field thing going on.

Mixed feelings about Negima!

I recently re-read some manga because I couldn’t sleep.  One of them was Negima!  The other was Tenchi Muyo.  For now I’m gonna talk about Negima!

I’ve had a lot of different reactions to this series as it went on.  As of right now I think I’m caught up to the U.S. release, which is at Volume 22.  Negi is training for the upcoming tournament with Jack Rakan.
