Ooh! The new dubbed trailer for Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne (originally titled Mnemosyne: Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi) is up on Funimation's website! Awesome trailer. :D
I've mentioned it on this blog before, but I actually didn't finish the show when I watched it as it was first coming out, even though I liked the protagonists- the graphic content got to me. But with exposure to Queen's Blade, Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman, Higurashi's nail-pulling scene, and an extra score of B-horror movies under my belt since then, I may be more tolerant (or callously amused by the excesses? ...or able to make it an episode further than I did before?) and ready to face Rin's infamous airplane scene. ^^; It also probably helps that I'm not expecting "Rin and Mimi's Great Yuri Rabu-Rabu Story!!" Simply bloody, mature (in more than one sense) action with yuri-service.
So I'll at least rent Funi's release- and I'll give the English dub a fair shot. Imo, Mimi's voice sounds better (read: older) in English. I was never much of a fan of Mimi's original seiyuu Kugimiya Rie, Queen of Tsundere Voice Acting, although I like her as Touko in Marimite and Alphonse in FMA.
And I've settled on this template as my blog's new look, ^^ along with adding a few new links on the side: Shimura Takako, Kaishaku, Ikeda Takashi, and Hibiki Reine's blogs. (Small aside: I love checking out the bonus character art that mangaka post on their blogs. ^^ Although in Kaishaku's case, it ranges from "aww, cute"
to "wtf- more catgirls?" to "she's going to have so many back problems later on in life." And Ikeda has some super-cute Sasameki Koto drawings.)
Plus, I'm massively happy that I received my Limited Edition Ameiro Kouchakan Kandan volume 1 in the mail today (technically yesterday now)! ^^ It's been out of stock on Amazon Japan...pretty much since its official release day. (The people who pre-ordered received copies.) I initially waited for several weeks to see if Amazon would restock the LE, since Ichijinsha's shop still had it in stock, but it never happened. And I wasn't able to find any Amazon Marketplace merchants who were willing to ship it to the U.S. ;_; Even though I didn't like the idea of using a seller, I began thinking that I would have to (but it would be more expensive, ugh)... Luckily, YesAsia got it in stock (and they still appear to have it in stock), so I picked it up from them. ^^ I'll listen to the drama CD tomorrow- err, later today, but not now. Need sleep...
Edit: Ack, I didn't link to the trailer before!! > < It's been added now.
