From the title I already knew that it was my kind of series (I’m a sucker for supernatural stuff after all) and I am very pleased that it turned out to be much better than I expected.
It had been true to its genre. It can indeed given me the chills and surprised me a lot of times. Supernatural elements aren’t limited to ghosts, but even to legendary creatures of divine deities. If you’re horried enough the hilarious scenes there are enough to balance those feelings. It knows when to add comedy lines and scenes. Of course its got some action and adventure too with all those hunting. It may not be centered on fight scenes, but they certainly got some moves. And of course, love here is not centered on erotic romance, because it also emphasizes on other forms of love, especially family.
Storytelling was really remarkable! Although it’s mostly episodic, each hunting case had been different. I mean, it’s not all the time they encounter a ghost, sometimes they encounter even more powerful beings, and sometimes not a specific creature at all, and there was even one time that their enemies are actually just humans. But of course it had not forgotten its main story. You can notice progress on it even in the episodic cases.
Characters, though I complain on the small number of the main cast, they had been excellent and were enough to make the series more interesting. They are not boring, they’ve got personality, and they’re not perfect. This doesn’t only apply to the main duo, because other characters get their value too.
Overall it had been a very entertaining and exciting series that I can’t wait to see the next season! Man, I should’ve started this sooner. Hehe

I borrowed this DVD from a friend but I still didn’t watch it until last night because I need to return it on Saturday. ^^;
Anyway, I can’t say that that it had been one of the best live action adaptations I have ever seen because I had so many complains with it. In summary, the manga and anime versions were just much better, from story telling to characters and to matches. The time span/duration had nothing to do with it. It had been really bad in my opinion. I do admit that I had enjoyed it somehow but most of the time it had given me headaches.

have always planned on creating another journal, and I’ve finally chosen WordPress (big reason why I didn’t make an account for this at once is because I was so annoyed that I can’t add a “-” in my username ^^; I always have either that or an “_” when I create usernames of my cyber name ^^;
Anywayz, I am not yet sure on what I’ll do on this one. I’ve been thinking of making my LiveJournal account focus on the AniManga fandom while this one will focus on my other fandoms (such as movies, novels, tv series, etc.) BUT I am not yet sure on that one ^^; I’ll think about it. It might even be entirely different. Ehehe.
I am still trying to get used to WordPress. I am still more comfortable with LiveJournal ^^; Ehehe. But I think I’ll like this one too. It has many features that LiveJournal doesn’t (though there are also features that LJ has and some I like better than this blog site’s version).
I actually thought of using BlogSpot too ya know (I actually have an account there already, though not under my cybername . . .and sapphire-pyro.blogspot.com is already taken yet doesn’t exist! WTF?!) but I don’t like its comment system (comments are separated from the entry? How annoying x_x) And I don’t think there are cuts or features that can make the entry seem shorter -_- That’s too disorganized for me . . long scrolling too -_-
Whoa! I’m really so typative. Gotta sleep now.
