my feminine Japanese side loves these

Haibane Renmei is an anime about angel-like beings. I kept thinking the pace was too slow, but what was happening was cool and beautiful, and by the end, I was glad I saw it.

The beginning is on youtube:

Yotsuba&! is a manga about a green-haired girl who lives life turned to eleven. The first two volumes seemed pleasant. By the third, I was laughing out loud a lot.

Both recommended by the awesome Janni Simner's awesome husband, Larry (who is also intouch with his feminine Japanese side).


  1. Ahem. I think you mean recommended by the awesome Janni Simner's tagalong husband.

    (Glad you liked them.)


  2. Much as I'd like to take credit, I'm pretty sure these are both Larry's recs. :-)

  3. Hey! Janni Simner's tagalong husband is pretty awesome in his own right ...

  4. Oh! You found my favourite anime ever! Even when I was shunning anime because all the geek boys were into it, I loved Haibane.
