I'm not nearsighted!!

I have myself a new interest. (Those of you in the know are no doubt rolling your eyes as you read—doesn’t that make it difficult to read?)

Witch Hunter Robin, pronounced Ro-bin (much to my surprise).

I bought it on a lark, mostly because while waiting on Mai to finish flipping through all the wedding magazines one night at BookStop, I sheepishly and carefully (i.e. after checking over both shoulders to make sure no one would notice) picked up an anime magazine and began flipping through. Apparently the show was just about to be released here in the states and as such a good portion of the ‘zine was devoted to singing it’s praises. I usually take such blatant advertising with a cask of salt, but one line caught my eye. It was from a reviewer, describing the show as a cross between The X-Files and Cowboy Bebop.

I was intrigued.

And acutely aware that its immanent release over here would soon render it untouchable via my normal (read: cheep) routes.

So I had to act fast, as it is against every bone in my body to pay American prices for anime I’m not even sure I’ll like.

But the news is this: I do like it.

Really like it.

Though I wasn’t too sure at first because the first 10 episodes or so just seemed to follow a monster-of-the-week motif and to really have justified the X-Files comparison, it would have to develop some kind of mythology.

Thankfully it did, and, to use a colloquialism, Boy-Howdy!

And as such, I have myself a new interest.

To Witch Hunter Robin, my newest conspiracy driven joy!

You are Robin - quiet yet powerful
You are Robin! Still young and a bit unsure of
your abilities, nonetheless you are a force to
be reckoned with, a real hidden dragon
