Yeah it's pretty much why I post the way I do. Usually don't have enough energy to sit through a heavy debate where guys are sentence by sentence taking down each others arguments. Usually keep what I have to say pretty neutral thus its less likely that I'll become a target. Though sometimes you just can't help but throw out what you have to say and thus accept whatever the response.
Have to say that the one new series I'm most looking forward to is Slayers:Revolution. Being one of the first anime I saw period put it in a special place for me. So getting this new season is probably the highlight of the summer. Obviously you hope its handled well, but either way should enjoy it.
Will probably also follow Strike Witches if only because I saw the OVA. Besides got through Sky Girls so should be able to handle this one. Also remember an interesting Canadian connection to one of the characters so that's enough to get me watching.
Otherwise will probably follow my staple plan of watching a lot of first episodes . Not all that sure about the third season of ZnT, but might give it a couple episodes. Either that or my plan of watching it whenever I have nothing else to do. Like I did with most of the second season.
Will also give Koihime†Musou a look as well. Should be interesting to see what's the best of the summer additions.
It's been a while since I had played "Tales of the Abyss" so it was interesting news to hear about it getting animated. Actually got it for Christmas, but took a break maybe half way through for some reason. Only finished it up in the last few months, but definitely looking forward to seeing the anime counterpart!
The skits really were a lot of fun. Adds some simple conversations that just added something to the game. Besides if your going through that much of a journey your going to end up talking quite a bit.
