15589To ALL 708 members - Watchoo Watchin'???
- Jul 2, 2004I realize that not everyone on the list downloads the fansub new
releases. So I am curious.....what all Yuri related Anime series or
OVAs or one-offs or mangas are folks watching or reading right now?
Any new recommendations for the List from the new members?
Even if it is something from our "august List", i would still like to
know what people are watching/reading? I have all kinds of stuff on
my shelf yet to be watched and I love to be steered by someone else's
RGU: I am going through Revolutionary Girl Utena for the second time
finally (with the addition of the manga). I am having some
extraordinary dialog offlist on the series too. I can easily say I am
enjoying it 100 times more the second time through. Might even post
some of my new thoughts soon.
RG Veda/Magic Knights Rayearth - Watched the first dvd volume of RD
Veda and about 9 Episodes of MKR and......<sigh>.....well I will be
posting a separate message on my mental wrestling match with CLAMP.
But I would love to hear from some folks who are CLAMP lovers - folks
who have seen more of their work than I have? Cause I am not liking
their work much right now. I have seen Miyu in Wonderland, and Manga
wise reading CLAMP WISH and Chobits and have on standbye Card Captor
Sakura and Tsubasa and XXXholic.
Cowboy Bebop - okay no Yuri, I know, but doggone I Tivoed an episode
the other day where Faye lays a big sloppy smooch on Ed. So well I
just had to check out the rest. (Of course I previously admitted my
obsessive crush on Electra from the movie.) I gotta say - I think Ed
qualifies for the list as an honorary Gender mixed character. Can we
create a side list for Gender mixed characters that we love Erica???
Kaleido Star - Started watching this because of Erica's excellent
review in Animerica (i think that was the pub - but i know it was
Erica). She had me utterly convinced I was missing something. Lo and
Behold the first ep. had me in tears. But then I am a sucker for
overcoming all odds stories.
Alien Nine - finally got around to watching the anime series of this.
I shamefully admit I totally missed the REAL ending that they
carefully buried in the final credits. I am almost relieved that I
did because I would have been an emotional wreck. The entire 3 part
series just ripped my guts out. Coming of Age story? I agree with one
of our listmembers that there is definitely some echoings of
childhood abuse stuff in here. But doggone if I have the stomach to
go back and analysis it. Trying to commit myself to the manga next.
Kino's Journey: started this and am now fascinated by my reactions
depending on whether I read the main character as female or male. I
have read on different websites different sex assignments. For
instance the screenwriter seems to believe the lead is a male, but NO
WHERE else does the US studio/official site identify the gender at
all? Anyone know anything more definitive??? Though I like that
approach much much better - let the viewer decide what gender they
want to see.
NieA_7: again I will post separately on this series since I feel the
content warrants some consideration from our Yuri perspective. I will
say here that I was baffled and off-put and compelled and charmed by
this series. Now that seems a very good thing to me! lol.
Also watched Perfect Blue, Millineum Actress and Tokyo Godfathers in
the last few months.....though none pertain to this list, they were
all excellent viewing experiences. I would especially recommend Tokyo
Godfathers to anyone.
et vous? please share?? Not that I want to go off topic but would
love to hear some new voices. What yuri have you watched lately? Old
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and to USA'ers hope it includes
an extra day off! ; >
