I have recently got the impression that Kill La Kill and Attack on Titan might have been bigger deals than I thought they were. Bigger deals outside of Japan, particularly in North America and Europe and Australia.
If so, I hope that Kill La Kill can inspire more shows like it.
Sound! Euphonium ep 1 >>>>>> Hyouka ep 1 <--- I agree with this (what you wrote on Pocari Sweat's wall). I honestly don't recall Tari Tari's 1st episode that well, other than that I recall liking it a fair bit. So I don't know if I can compare it well to S!E or Hyouka's first episode. But yeah, S!E had a better start than Hyouka did, largely because of pacing issues (Hyouka's first episode was rather slow, while S!E's strikes a good balance between lively and easy-to-understand).
Had a massive PM about a bunch of different stuff ready to go and thanks to crappy hotel connection lost it all
But I will start again, there's plenty of things I'm interested in hearing your opinion about.
Thanks! I had a pretty good Christmas with my family. I hope you had a happy Holidays yourself.
Good to hear you have regular internet access again. I hope you enjoy the Santa Magica fanfic a lot! Without having you around for feedback, I was a bit cautious with your character and kept your dialogue somewhat low, but hopefully you'll enjoy what is there. Your power is certainly very, very cool and helped set up the funniest moment of the final chapter, imo.
I look forward to getting your take on Santa Magica.
