Since I have been asked to slow down in my rampant Blood+ viewing so some people can catch up *cough* lycheedreams *cough* I have turned my attention to a promising new series called Innocent Venus.

In the year 2010A.D., Hyper Hurricanes born concurrently all over the world caused severe damage. Five billion people lost their lives, decreasing the world's population to 3 billion. Existing economies and militaries were wiped out. North America, Russia, and Northern Europe were frozen under solid ice; plains sank beneath seas; the world's geography was changed dramatically. Human civilisation enters a chaotic era.

The Japanese Government created special economic areas which have achieved a limited degree of recovery pursuant to the disaster. Powered Assist Technology, which had long been under study, played an important role in this recovery.

However, poverty flourished outside of these ecomomic zones and slums were widespread. The ruling class called themselves "Logos" and maintained their position by force of arms, introducing Powered Assist Technology into the military. They call the poor "Revenus", who are exiled to live outside the special economic areas.

Time has passed since then. The main characters, Katsuragi Jo and Tsurasawa Hitoshi, escape from "Phantom", a special force organised to watch Revenus and to suppress renegade elements of the Logos, taking with them a mysterious girl, Noto Saya. There are many who are interested in her, all with their own personal motives.

Animation is good and did I mention there is mecha?  Not huge, Gundam style mecha, but smaller, person-sized mecha.  I have no idea why the girl, Saya (why is it that my two fav animes at the moment have a girl named Saya in it?) is so special since I've only watched the first two episodes.  Now, in the above synopsis calls one of the characters Tsurasawa Hitoshi, but he's called Jin on the show.  There might be a reason for this, but it hasn't been revealed yet.  The show has promising action and lots of angst potential.  I've fallen in love with Jo already ;)  He's the quiet, serious guy that I fall for everytime.  I have a feeling that his relationship with Jin will be wonderfully slashable and will give me that extra fangirl squee that I love about biseinen anime.   *is such a yaoi hor*

And in other news, I've officially begun work on the next chapter of Light.  Yes, I know I said P&C was up next, but Duo is demanding that the next chapter be written ASAP.  How can I say no to him?  He's keeping me up at night....little brat.   

T-minus 6 days until 31

You can easily get three episodes in within an hour. Thus leaving plenty of time for your precious Final Fu. C'mon, you can't deny the hawtness that is Haji. Think of the hottie overload you can have nightly between the two. ;)
