"Kimi ni Todoke" Season 2

New season of anime is here!  I just finished the 3rd episode of KnT2.  Wow this show is so frustrating and enjoyable.  Kazehaya just won't make a bold move and Sadako doesn't know how to respond.  Aaagh!  Well, hopefully the introduction of Kent will stir the pot.  The jealous Kazehaya is so cute!  Anyway, the art is again really perfect this season!  Hooray for KnT!
Other shows I'm trying to follow this season:  Gosick, Fractale, Tegami Bachi:Reverse, Wandering Son, and Level E.

"Ghost Hunt"

Happy New Year!  It's been a while since I last posted.  I discovered "Ghost Hunt" while looking on the Funimation website.  I remember seeing a favorable review, probably on Anime News Network, so I decided to give it a try without expecting too much.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It's a nicely drawn anime, with a lot of nice chemistry between the ghost hunting team.  There are several small mystery arcs in the 25 episodes of the show.  I like how we get to see the a miko, a priest, and a monk use their own versions of spiritual powers to find and exorcise ghosts.  There are quite a few scares, but it's not gory enough to gag at.  I watched the dub mostly and enjoyed the voice acting.  Also, special props to the soundtrack.  I love the OPs and EDs and the background music of the whole series.  Check it out on the Funimation site or on Hulu.
