Yea I'm not exactly a fan of characters who just stay static and are just there to display their quirky trait every episode and leave. It's also why I was skeptical of Tari Tari at the start because similar shows to it have easily turned me off.
Lol, Nanoha franchise hasn't been the same after A's. StrikerS was mediocre at best and the less said about the mangas the better. But I place a much higher priority into remembering characters such as Fate over the shows they hail from, often. And I've always been somewhat indiffrent to anime, but some friends are helping me in that regard. Previously it used to be because I thought anime plain sucked, though I no longer feel that way though RL has given me less time to watch and pretty much everything that's not really interesting gets ignored.
