So I watched through all of Onegai Teacher (went through it almost as quickly as I went through Onegai Twins). I liked it! Of course, I kind of figured I would, since I liked Onegai Twins so much, but yeah. It was really cute.

I find it really interesting how both series deal with unconventional romantic situations. I had shied away from Onegai Teacher because the teacher/student dynamic disturbed me. I only gave Onegai Twins a try because Cody had included some scenes in an AMV he made and it looked kind of cute. And then I tried Onegai Teacher because I thought if Twins was good, it might be worth a try.

But when you watch either series... the relationships aren't disturbing. And they're not like the all-too-prettified unconventional relationships you see in Clamp manga. The characters' emotions seem real and endearing. They understand that they may not be doing the right thing, but the feelings are there and need to be dealt with. The situation is sticky, but somehow the characters feel that everything will be all right in the end.

I'm not saying either series is a masterpiece or anything close to one. They're full of fanservice and cutesy humor. But I thoroughly enjoyed them and had no problems relating to the characters and rooting for them through their problems. The romances were sincere and enjoyable to watch.

All in all, I like both series very much.

In other news, I also saw Stardust with V on Wednesday night. That was really cute, too! Nothing special, but cute and fun to watch. I wouldn't go see it again, but I enjoyed it. And we both needed the night out. It was good.

Tonight's supposed to be an evening out with the girls - still waiting to hear back from Jo, but at the very least I can probably do something with V. So that will be good.

I love this song. And the anime that goes with it. Thanks to [ profile] herongale for bringing it to my attention (I find most of the series she recs are fantastic).

Since today is a day off for me, I'm going to try and do some reviews for a bunch of things I've finished watching but haven't had time to set my thoughts down for.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya )

Zettai Shounen )

Onegai Twins )

Princess Tutu )

Pretear )

Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End )

And... I think that's it for reviews. For now.
