NED-さん休みの一日

6.18am. My eyes actually opened before the alarm rang. The reason became painfully obvious really quickly: i was running a temperature. So there you have it, NED is down for the count on a lovely Monday. Even the weather is lovely… grrrrr. Given the “free” time, i decided to get some writing down, so i finally updated this blog with a personal post.

Here’s a new anime that’s gone below the radar of most people. Candy Boy is a short web anime released by Anime International Company (AIC) in Nov 2007. The name of the anime is something of a misnomer. There are no boys in the anime, being about the lives of 2 very dissimilar twin sisters and the tension caused by the feelings of 1 freshman towards the younger of the twins. The title is taken from the single by Meilin, a Korean artist, whose cd is packaged with the DVD release. Meilin’s music also graces the anime at various points.

As of May 2008, AIC started a new run of 7 episodes, each 14 min long.
