hd_worldcup: Tarot Prompt - The Devil

"Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. With Capricorn as its ruling sign, this is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remind the Querent that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it." - aeclectic.net

Spring 2008 Anime - The List

Definitely Watching

Going to Check Out
  • Amatsuki ⇒ the RAW ep 1 seems fine, but lets see how it progresses.
  • Nabari no Ou ⇒ ♥ am watching the first episode WITHOUT subs and I'm laughing. Can't wait for the fansub.
  • Real Drive ⇒ really like the design...the one anime to make me yell "oh, SHIT" - just need the subs so I can understand what's going on >__>
  • The Tower of Druaga: Aegis of Uruk ⇒ ♥ the first episode

Surprises
  • Kure-nai ⇒ a bit mysterious but could really be good. The pacing is a bit slow now though.
  • Library War aka Toshokan Senso ⇒ A love of books along with humor...not too bad ^__^
  • Special A ⇒ Gah, a bit too shoujo for me >__>

Might Try
  • Blassreiter ⇒ did not like
  • Crystal Blaze ⇒ Ugh, one too many naked women and no strong male leads
  • Monochrome Factor ⇒ the cheesy!shounen-ai moments had me facepalming, but hey, I'm a slasher - might watch it anyway.
  • Soul Eater ⇒ it's okay but not amazing just yet - the design isn't my cup of tea either.
  • Itazura na Kiss ⇒ drama was better so I'm skipping the anime.
  • Vampire Knight ⇒ Why does the girl have to be so shoujo!generic, argh. Might watch just for Zero though - he seems pretty cool.

I'm hoping Amatsuki and Real Drive will turn out to be good but it's been a while since I've had a season where I like a lot of the new shows out :/

Anyone watching any of the sping line up?
