Friday night Sci-Fi...

Well, it's Friday again, and I've still not written my Transformers or The Last Mimsy reviews. Nor have I written all the various essays which I wanted to write.

As I write, this I know that on Monday, I'll happily list those things again, and have every intention in the world on going through with it.

But who knows, maybe I'll get my act together this weekend and write them.

Anyways, enough about me and my procrastination problem, I'm left with something much more serious.

A lack of science fiction to indulge in over the weekend.

I'll have to watch Eureka sometime this weekend, that's a given. Yet out of all the anime I'm currently watching, only a single show could be construed s sci-fi anymore, and I'm borderline on continuing with that show. But, I guess any anime is technically fodder for discussion here.

Anyways, the things I'm watching anymore are:

  • History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi
  • Kekkaishi
  • Seto no Hanayome
  • IdolMaster Xenoglossia
  • Zombie Loan
  • Dennou Coil
  • School Days TV
In addition to those, I have the following that I wanted to glance at to see if they're worth following:
  • Potemayo
  • Code-E
  • Project Blue Earth SOS
  • Sky Girls TV
Surprisingly, while making that list, I noticed that I had a lot more sci-fi anime that I had thought. I was thinking that the only thing sci-fi I had left this season was IdolMaster Xenoglossia. When in fact, I also have Dennou Coil, Code-E, Project Blue Earth and Sky Girls.

Anyways, I watched episode 13 of IdolMaster Xenoglossia and 38 of Kenichi last night.

IdolMaster is an odd thing. It started its life out as a video game, where the player is to manage these girls into becoming Japanese Idols (something kind of like a pop-star here in the States). Most of that concept just doesn't exist in the anime, instead we get a story about giant robots.

This is the anime I was considering dropping. The past few episodes had been lackluster at best, yet 13 had a plot twist that was just strong enough to keep my interest for a bit long.

Kenichi, I shouldn't like, but I do. I'm not sure why, if I had to hazard a guess, it would be because it reminds me of DBZ, but without the aliens or super powers. Frankly, I think it's just mindless fun-which I appreciate every now and then.

Later on tonight, I'll be watching Zombie Loan, and giving School Days one last chance to interest me.

Now, all that said, how is everyone else going to get their Sci-fi/geek fix over the weekend?
