Another anime post :D  
I meant to write about Oct anime... but too bad I only managed to watch one so far. XD

That one I watched was: La Corda D'oro ~Primo Passo~, yes it's the Corda TV anime.

After watching the first episode, my feeling was a mixture of happiness and angst. XD

Happy for its quality which is above my expectation. (OK I admit Angelique TV really killed my expectation.)

Angst because now I know where KOEI is spending their money on... They obviously chose to give up on Ange TV and put more money in Corda. T_T My Shugosei-sama...

With that said, Corda is looking good. The bishes all look... pretty bishy... Story so far doesn't feel as stupid as Ange, and the heroine, appeared to be less annoying than Enju.

Tho Episode 1 might be too early to tell.

The other Oct animes I'm checking out:

Death Note

Shounen Omyouji

Cast for Shounen Omyouji:
安倍晴明(青年):石田 彰
藤原行成:関 俊彦
藤原敏次:福山 潤 ほか

But I like Angelique (cast) so much better than Corda... T_T Why did they do this?! [Wailing.] I haven't watched either anime, but overall, I like Angelique better. Of course, I like Haru Toki the best, so at least please don't screw up Haruka!!

Idhida-san should just become an omyouji from now on... XD Shounen Omyouji seemed most interesting to me... But I have to follow the only anime that has Kazuhiko-san... Bakumatsu...

Think about this...>.>

The Angelique fans have been there for so many years, that even if it's a bad anime, KOEI just needs to add in a bit of omake (like the chibi Shugosei story in the DVD) then the fans would just buy it out of their love for the series.

Corda has the smallest fandom out of the 3 neo-romance series, there are probably lots of Ange Haruka fans who're interested in it, but not enough love to actually spend a lot of money on it. (Beside, much weaker/younger casts :P) Therefore making a good Corda anime could work as a good marketing strategy to convert some fans over...

But of course Haruka is still the focus of KOEI's money making strategy. With Maihitoyo, it's really at its peak time I just feel... o.o

Yup, I can understand the corporate money perspective, but still. Kind of a bad customer relations move. Once the anime is done, is done. You can't go back and improve upon it. It's too bad what they did about Angelique. All those brilliant seiyuu...

Corda... I'll refrain from saying anything about it... ^^;;;

Thanks again for the Maihitoyo upload! ^O^

You're welcome, too bad the emulator doesn't seem to work very well. ^^;;
