Can I pretend I'd be able to catch Hakuouki Hekketsuroku Ep 11 when I get back from work today?

Yeah, I'm totally in denial. I can't believe it ended like that :(

More updates when I feel like writing long essays.

I guess I have to prepare to have my heart broken again and again for the upcoming Hakuouki Hekketsu-roku episodes.

Seriously. If the raws come out pretty regularly as I've been seeing so far, I'll have my heart broken repeatedly every Monday night T_T

I don't know how many episodes it will have, but... the story so far had me wishing for Mondays to come sooner, even though I'll just be sad again.

I have discovered the awesomeness of the bishie laden Hakuouki!

And I found some really cute chibi icons from the hakuoki LJ comm! I can't help myself. They're just so cute. No prizes for guessing which is my favourite character, but to be honest, I like all of them :3

If only I could play the game too. But I don't think they have any English version, not officially anyway. I know there are ISO files of the Japanese version available, I'm not sure if I really want to play it. Even though (personally) I think my Japanese understanding is getting slightly better, I still terribly suck at translations. Don't even get me talking about the grammar. I am hopelessly adrift with that.

The anime cannot fully explain all the things revealed in the game within such a strict episode limit. So when I read reviews of the anime, I can understand why people think some parts are just... not explained fully, like "where did this development suddenly come from?" type of expression. I know from browsing the comm that there were parts that were originally in the game that were not shown in the anime.

It's just like how some people bash Kara no Kyoukai because they can't seem to understand the concept and just simply flame people who like them. As is the case with light novel/manga/game to anime adaptation, the word adaptation itself shows that the original work was altered or adjusted to fit the new form of media (the anime, or whatever it's been adapted to). And it usually is not possible to completely express what the story was intended for. Which is why I really, really, really want to read the KnK light novels so badly. Damn you, Del Ray, I want my novels now!

Sorry, got a bit out of hand there.
Guess I'll just satisfy myself with the Drama CDs. And the second season :)

On another note, today is Sunday--------------- last day of relaxing at home (and going shopping later while the Deepavali sale is still around), before I start another week of my busy working life.
