Sorry about the delay, I'm getting distracted by a lot of things right now...
Anyway, that is a really nice picture you've found. I do already have something else in mind for my next avatar, though. I just haven't found the time to make my next set (incl. sig) yet. ^^;
So yeah, I think I'll play fair this time and let other fellow Sayaka fans use those very nice avatars by Kogetsu... especially because I'm not particularly active on AS right now, which would be a waste of nice opportunities to show it off and "spread the love" so to speak.
I recently came across a Sayaka image that I think you might like. Here it is.
Our good friend Kogetsu also made two AS-usable avatars out of it. No. 1 and No. 2.
If you'd like to use one or the other as an avatar, please tell me. ^_^ I think it would suit you the best of the big Sayaka fans on this site. If you don't want to use it as an avatar, please tell me that as well, since I think it's too good an avatar to pass up, lol. So if you don't use it, somebody else probably will.
I wasn't there in the final hours of the finale because I had some real life stuff to attend to for much of this day, so I was probably spared from the growing sense of despair had I watched the tense 10-vote gap grow much bigger in the last 3 hours of the match.
I did say I don't have any regrets, though asking for a second miracle to happen was probably too much.
I'm afraid you will have to wait around a year or a bit less for my input regarding that. As it is, it will be a repeat of my experience with movies 1 and 2. As much as I love the franchise, there is nothing I can do if the movie is not showing in my country (going overseas to catch the showing is not an option).
On another note, I've seen a few of your early posts in the Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai/Unbreakable Machine-Doll thread. While I haven't read any of the novels, I am a fan of the manga adaptation which I have been closely following since I picked it up... 476 days before. Yeah, it's a little hard to believe I'm already watching those scenes again in motion... But I digress, since I'd like to know your take on the characters and the currently airing anime.
