I'm that weird mental state when you've just finished an anime and all you can think of is how brilliant it was and what an amazing thing you've just watched.

As the title of this entry says, I've finished watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Finally. I can't believe it took me so long, but I'm very glad I watched it. I wanted to watch it for a while now, then I started watching the first episode with Andrew and it quickly became "the anime we watch together". And yesterday we finished it together, thus becoming "our first anime". And I'm very glad this was the first anime we watched together.

So... what did I think of it? Well, I won't spoil the ending for anyone, but all I can say is... wow. The last three episodes were just so amazing. I didn't know exactly what to expect from this series or where it was going. Which made what happened even more shocking. The ending was just... so beautiful. It's just such a brilliant anime. I loved it and so did Andrew. The music was captivating and gorgeous, too.

I read the manga today, as well. I'm glad I did, because a few things got clarified. But in this case I'd advise to watch the anime first. The manga is only three volumes long and so I feel like some things happen too quickly. The anime might be slower at first, but the pace of the last 3-4 episodes is perfect, in my opinion.

I seriously don't know what else to say, other than it was great. I'll be writing a review on the whole series shortly in magazine format, so that I can put it into my "writing samples" for Neo, if they should ask.

So... who wants to fangirl about/discuss Madoka Magica with me? :D (If you're including spoilers in your comment, please put "spoilers" in the title of the comment. I don't want other people to be spoiled while reading comments for this entry in case they want to watch the anime. Thanks!)

Hello guys! I can't believe it's March already! Real life, you need to stop doing this. Seriously.

I finally have a moment to update my DW. I also feel bad for not commenting on my f-list's entries and I miss a lot of posts due to real life. But I'm trying to be more active and comment regularly on your journals! I just hope I can do it.

Anyway. I am really happy to announce that I'm almost through with the second semester of uni! Which is awesome. The semester ends officially on the 31st of March, but given that I don't have lectures on Thursdays and Fridays and all my workshops/tutorials will be over by then, I will most likely be free a couple of days before the 31st. I can't wait!! :D Of course I have exams in May, but first I really want to relax and take it easy with my revision.

I also feel the need to tell you guys about this work I had to do for uni and that got me incredibly stressed like never before. cut for real life episode )

So yeah, because I was so happy that my group assignment was over, I accidentally bought a lot of chocolate. And I mean a lot. As in, "this-will-probably-last-me-three-weeks" a lot. But I was feeling really happy and I wanted to celebrate and something just came over me... and before I knew it, BAM, I had bought enough chocolate for an entire army. I'M CRAZY, I KNOW.

Now, onto fandoms!

I don't think I mentioned it, but I recently read and finished Honey & Clover. It is an AMAZING manga. What really impressed me was how real everyone and everything felt. The situations the characters were going through could have happened to anyone in real life and the way they dealt with things and their emotions, it all felt so real. If you ever get the chance, you should seriously consider giving this manga a try. I cried multiple times while reading it, and the ending... DAMN I BAWLED MY EYES OUT. But it was so totally worth it.

I'm having a massive Leverage re-watch, because I got Andrew (and his family) hooked on the TV show. XD Right now we're almost at the end of season 3 and I plan to watch season 5 for the first time with Andrew as soon as we finish season 4, which I have already watched. I'm really sad that Leverage got cancelled, but on the other hand, I can't wait to see the series finale. It will be epic and it will make me cry, I know it.

I watched The Dark Knight Rises a couple of weeks ago. Expect another rant on that film in the near future.

I am still reading Northern Lights/The Golden Compass. I sort of put it aside because of university, but then I picked it up again on Saturday and read a whole bunch of chapters and I am now almost finished with it, haha. Yay for weird reading patterns!

Aaaaaand, last but not least, a mini-rant on what's happening on the Big Bang Theory recently. cut for spoilers )

And that's all for this post! I will try to be more active this month, since university is ending soon. :D

This is just a list of fandoms I'm making for myself... just to keep track of all the manga/anime/shows/videogames I've read/watched/played or plan on reading/watching/playing...

This list is going to be updated as time passes.

Feel free to comment if you know any other fandom that you think I'd like to know as well. :D Advice is very much appreciated. ♥

HUGE list behind the cut~ )

OH. MY. GOD.
Tsubasa is so KILLING me.

OHMYGOSHYAY!!! I can't believe it. I'm so happy! Finally Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC have arrived in Italy, too!

Well... that took long enough. I mean, Tsubasa is at volume 19 and here we're still at volume 1! It'll take a whole year and a half to find out about Clone!Syaoran... but I already know everything while other people don't! *_* *insert evil laugh here*

Anyway, I'm so happy to have these little volumes and gorgeous drawings in my hands! ♥ Again, YAY!
