How's it going my gumdrops? Did you enjoy yesterday's blog and find my ideas useful for presents? What did you think of Madame Macabre's collaboration with Myuuji on "Carol Of The Bells"?
Even though I am NOT a major fan of Christmas Music, "Carol Of The Bells," "O Holy Night," and "Silent Night" are my favorites. This is especially when these songs are performed by a talented singer.
While listening to Scott Weiland's Christmas album last December, I was a little disappointed in the style he sang "Silent Night." It was too upbeat for me.
However, I DID enjoy his covers of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," and "The Christmas Song." I still can't believe it has been an entire year, since Scott's death.
Aside from the Christmas Music, I hope you found the list I posted in yesterday's Song Saturday blog to be useful. There is so much you can do with customizing Christmas presents. All it takes is a little creativity and imagination. This also applies to home made gifts. Try making the most with whatever you have.
After typing that list yesterday, I wondered how many people will be getting Anime as presents. I am sure younger fans will be getting some from family and friends.
BTW: Next Saturday on Christmas Eve, Adult Swim's Toonami block will marathon JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood starting at 12:15/11:15pm Central.
This is not exactly a Christmas themed Anime, but it is currently the best show on the Toonami block. As cheesy, melodramatic, and cartoonish as JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is, at least it keeps us entertained.
Speaking of Anime, I have suggested at least several times to long-time friends lately, that they should watch Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. This is 1 of my favorite Shojo Anime next to NANA and Fruits Basket.
Technically, NANA is a Josei Anime because it is meant for women ages 18 and older.
Some of you may recall from last spring, that I published a blog about Shojo Anime in serious need of re-dubs. For those of you, who were NOT on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns last spring, you may want to read the following blog.
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is the type of Anime, that I can watch over and over again. You know how you can sit and watch the same show or movie countless times and still laugh at it? This is the same way I feel about this particular Shojo Horror Comedy Anime.
I have NEVER watched The Ring but I have watched Ringu, its prequel, and sequel, 10 years ago.
Watching The Wallflower in Japanese is far more entertaining than in English Dub. The reactions from her bishonen (pretty boy) roommates, that she's forced to live with are hilarious in Japanese.
Sunako's creepiness and the way she scares them is more hilarious. This is besides her looking like a total eyesore and not having any "feminine qualities" to her personality. Her only friends are her creepy skeleton and anatomy figures.
Hiroshi is Sunako's anatomy figure, which she considers her best friend. He normally reflects on previous episodes and introduces each episode of the animated series.
If you ever watch The Wallflower in its entirety, you will see how much sentimental value Hiroshi holds. He may only be an anatomy figure, but he still holds A LOT of significance to Sunako and the series.
To all my fellow Horror fans, if you want to watch an animated Horror Comedy, I recommend watching Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. It is known as "Perfect Girl Evolution" besides "The Wallflower."
Since Christmas Day, as well as a few other winter holidays are creeping around the corner next week, it's only fitting to share this Christmas episode of The Wallflower for today's Cartoon Sunday.
