    I finished it It was a great show. Umi remains my favorite, as she was whenever I first PM'd you after watching the first three episodes, but I like all the girls of Muse a lot. Nico would probably be my next favorite. She was endearingly grumpy and grouchy without ever crossing the line of being genuinely annoying, and I enjoyed her passion for, and expertise of, the idol world a lot. The episode where the Muse girls visited her home for the first time was pretty cringeworthy, of course.

    I think Hanayo and Rin were probably given too little attention, but it's hard to balance a cast of nine characters, particularly when you're dealing with a fairly short two cour series like Love Live. I do wish that there were more episodes to explore the characters for that reason, but they did well with the space alloted them. The music was nice, Start! Dash is a really good song and I enjoyed Snow Halation (bonus points for airing on June 1st, my grandmother's 69th wedding anniversary and the last one she lived to see - glad that such a special episode aired on that particular day). Shocking Party is actually my favorite song from the series, though, Muse traitor though that makes me.

    Sad to see the group gear up to go their separate ways towards the end, of course. Maybe they can keep in touch through Skype videoconferences or something, that might not be anywhere near as good as idol rehearsals on the school rooftop but it's a whole lot better than nothing.

    So yeah, a short-lived but beautiful series about short-lived but beautiful friendships. I'm glad that the series isn't completely over and that there's still a movie in the works; Fall 2015 will be a good season for anime movies, since that's when both Tamayura and Love Live! should be released to DVD. I'm guessing that they'll keep Muse alive and that the idol group will be maintained as a long-standing school tradition, with the original nine members simply the first generation of a constantly revolving door.

    Oh dear....! Sailor Moon Crystal, huh? Well. For starters, some positives: the animation quality has improved significantly from what it was during the first few episodes. It's still not perfect, but it's at least decent, sometimes even really pretty now. Minako was finally introduced, and as expected, she is awesome. Queen Beryl has been given more characterisation than before and that's interesting, rounding her out as a villain much better.
    There are the usual issues re voice acting, really dumb villain behaviour and cheesiness and I'm not keen on some of the implications made.

    Overall, it's improved quite a bit, while still not being up to expectations in many ways. deviations from the source are starting to show, ymmv on those- you'll either love or hate it. I will say that I'm enjoying the current episodes more than the first few, character development is still lacking, staging can be hit and miss. But as of the last episode you do get a much better feel for the world and a bit of that magical fairytale feeling, which was quite well done.

    If you can spare 6 minutes to watch something extremely sexy, disturbing, depressing, and amazing, check out the recent animated short/music video ME!ME!ME! (very NSFW!). The ASuki thread is here.

    This thing ranks among my biggest wtf-bombs I've seen this year along with Madoka Magica: Rebellion and the ending of Aldnoah.Zero S1.

    Just wanted to say since I caught on psycho pass S2 today mostly, reading thru the S2 threads, I really enjoyed reading your posts and found some of them pretty insightful.

    Well, I'll admit: my favorite Meguca char. could never pull off a cute look like that. Not without drastically changing the artstyle anyway.

    Also I second watching Birdy the Mighty: Decode. Actually I'm almost certain I recommended that to ago (I feel old). If you want action on your day off, do give that one a try. For SoL I still direct you to Hanayamata, and for romance there's Kimikiss for the past 9k times now.

    I don't know if you ever got round to watching Birdy the Mighty: Decode or not but I literally just found this little titbit and figured you might find it interesting. Apparently the connection between Superman and Birdy the Mighty: Decode was deeper than I thought. XP

    (Btw, In case you haven't watched Birdy the Mighty yet, don't watch that youtube video. That's a clip of the final fight of the second season.)

    It's okay, now that you say that I can figure out the tone that it was intended to be read in. And that was a good AMV. Beautiful, peaceful, and high standards of living. Canada for Best Country.

    Ah... okay. I get that it makes you think of Canada in general, but the last sentence made me think that you had also had somewhere more specific in mind, like a home you lived at during childhood or something.

    but it'll always make me think of a particular place that's special to me.
    Where does it make you think of?

    If everyone looked like Maki.

    And this may be the time I've seen something that is equally cute and boss at the same time.
