not all fan girls are created equal, not all anime blogs are recognizable for following the one episode plus screencaps entry formula. At least, mine isn't. Probably because except in very rare cases, I don't do individual episode summaries, especially of the new anime out; I leave that to the more qualified people who understand Nihongo better than all of us who have to rely on (the kindness of) subs.
now called sunny side up
Beyond a way of cooking eggs, sunny side up is also the opening theme to the 愛してるぜベイベ★★ Aishiteruze Baby anime. Lyrics were composed by Hitoto Yo who also performs the song. What's this got to do with me? While I'm not that big a fan of tamago, nor am I quite that obsessive over AishiBaby (I thank it for the animanga connection is all ahm sayin'), sunny side up sums up my self-confessed preference for viewing life. So I'm happy that this option won the blog renaming poll.
k, enough with the overshare. Now back to what this blog contains.
What I do here for the most part are reviews (often mini, sometimes consolidated) of anime and dorama (subbed, as stated earlier), manga and manhwa (translated EN | ID), seiyuu performances in the anime I'm watching, music, and other stuff connected with animanga. I call them "reviews," but they're not, really. Because of personal bias, they tend to discuss the characters more than plot and have this not-so strangely predictable tendency to meander into shipment/OTP discussion territory (I like couples—they usually lock in my emotional investment in a title.)
and here's a not-so random shipment I dote on ^^ (If you correctly guess who they are and leave me a comment, I'll send you a virtual Pocky.)
And fangirl that I am, you'll find quite a lot of babble with the fanlistings I've joined; I'm not content with simply putting up codes to show my wub.
I also do regular lists. Lots of 'em, including backlists for manga-ka I adore. I shuttle between this and (hey, at least I'm passing) Listology and my other blog to pander to my animanga litany predilection. As exemplified below:
- anime Voltes V
- manga Candy Candy
- seiyuu Koyasu Takehito
- shipment Hanazawa Rui x Makino Tsukushi (Hana Yori Dango)
- dorama Meteor Garden II
- J-dorama Gokusen
- YAOI Only the Ring Finger Knows (Sono yubi dake ga shitteiru)
- BL drama Okane ga Nai
- manhwa Neck and Neck
- K-dorama Goong AKA Princess Hours
I also report air dates and releases, especially for the Southeast Asian part of the world, that interest me. Because my anime fix mainly comes from Animax and the company holding the license for manhwa and manga in Indonesia is Gramedia, these companies tend to crop up quite a bit in my blog entries. But like all things that have to do with time, schedules I set down are subject to change without prior notice (I've been tripped up quite a lot by this bit of life certainty).
I also ramble. A bit much, actually. But then, like Maria in Roswell, I think
I've earned the right to babble, so deal. But don't worry—unless I'm feeling totally random, the musings and gushings tend to stay within the animanga topic.
Whatever I'm writing about, one thing remains certain: nothing is writ in stone. Whatever I've written will prolly get edited/revised at some point (or points) in time, sometimes to correct snafus and at other times, for no other reason than "I like to tweak."
And for all that some unrelated personal stuff and rants creep in sometimes, this is first and foremost, my anime blog. So welcome.

PPS. Spamming is pathetic. Don't even bother leaving spam comments. They're sure to get deleted.
not all fan girls are created equal comes from the first volume of the Korean manhwa Chocolat, written by Shin Ji-Sang & GEO (© 2005 Shin Ji-Sang · GEO · ICE Kunion). Fangirl heroine Kum-Ji observed this sad truth.
