    I find myself less interested in GD than I thought I would be, based on a generally positive take as the episode was playing. The whole thing feels kind of ordinary and conventional to me, but that's me.

    I have to go back to a VN series called Narcissu (which I played after watching/playing TT and ef) or the OVA Baby Blue to get this absolute bliss feeling. I don't like anime romances dramas much actually, in fact the vast majority of the time I think they blow - see Nagi no Asu Kara for example... totally yuck. I love this melancholic, romanticesque, nostalgic type dramas that don't rely upon excessive bawfest or melodrama... unless if it's done in the way ef is done which was pretty much Shakespearean.

    Heh Chinami. I deliberately did cause I know she's your favourite character and erm... I don't like 20 yr old who act like they are 13 . Wanted to annoy ya!

    So if I think this is what I think it's going to be, I found my anime of the year, perhaps anime since True Tears and ef tale of memories. Yes, I am completely in love with White Album 2's first episode. Even more so ever since I've been browsing its OST:

    So out of the Golden time girls, which one do you fancy? My preference goes Linda > Kouko >>> Chinami.

    I found the whole thing amazingly lifeless from the beginning, TBH. Very odd for a Kishi show.

    I need to go ahead and put up my shelf to display my Kuroneko collection. Oh, he's done a collection of images. Wallpaper file improvement time.

    Both of those are great pics. The Kanade/Kuroneko one is quite fitting. The Hyouka one is a real stroke of genius for whoever came up with it (although Satoshi's son looks like a carbon copy of Satoshi, and it's hard to see what Mayaka contributed, lol).

    It is funny how you ended up voting for the Tiara Winner in the Tiara final match-up without even realizing it.

    Yeah, I may extend the yakuza encounter, just because I found it so amusing (been waiting nearly two volumes to do that scene).

    I was shooting for a Glyc version of Gollum's decision making with a heavy splash of Hamlet's "to be". Close, still needs more meat.

    Choosing words so that Tsika's misunderstanding was easy to follow was tough. Glyc needs to basically brief Tsika on her thought process with enough ambiguity that Tsika assumes the worst.

    My mental model of the bridge is taken from my own (not entirely legal) exploration of the area under the Golden Gate Bridge in SanFran. The fencing, gates, and catwalks, along with the huge water pipe are dead on. What I still haven't conveyed properly in words well is how the ground underneath slopes away -- for that I was using the model of "improved flood control" bayous under Houston, TX bridges. I know there's Japanese versions of the civil engineering technique, but I need to do more research on the gentle slope, terracing, steep slope, drop contour to the water.

    I intended that Glyc work her way back down the pipe with Tsika to the edge of the gentle slope where there was maybe 5-8 meters of fall but it still isn't really pictorially clear to the reader. I will likely add more physical damage to all parties when I rewrite it. I can see Blar catching Tsika and the momentum forcing them into a cartwheel - then tumbling with her cradled (so he should take more damage). Basically, I think I can write it to be more believable but that's on the to-do. The mud terrace should be congratulated more for cushioning damage.

    I think if I actually sketch a drawing of the bridge that may help me write the descriptive text better.

    Weed can smell really strong. I covered that with Kpau/Glyc running from the cops and Hank's remarks about clearing the air, but I've dropped the ball somewhat elsewhere. I figured the sewer mud probably buried the smell but it may need an explanatory line or Duane saying "swamp mud with a hint of weed" or some such.

    Real Life: yeah, I'm keeping an eye on the Steambox. That's the first console concept I might actually not roll my eyes at. There's a 360, a ps3, and a Wii in the house but they're each used for 1-2 games at this point.

    We play Rockband and soccer on the 360, the ps3 is getting used for a couple of games by #1 son but it's a "freebie", the Wii gets used for bowling and that's about it now (occasional Rabbid or Bloc games when guests are over). None of the upcoming consoles really grab me. The only way I would even blink at an XBOne is if RB4 popped up (and most people are begging Harmonix to go with PS4 exclusive if they start the project).

    Agreed on Nadeko ... they've taken what was sort of a flat one-dimensional archetype and really stretched her out. That reminds me to make sure I'm up to date on pre-orders (assuming such are available).

    I'm pretty much with you on Golden Time. The Club Recruitment scene was definitely overplayed a bit. Still, I'm liking the show so far.

    With IS2, I liked the call-back in having "Charles" dressed as a butler. It's good to see she can still pull of a trap well. I've resigned myself to "Houki or nobody" being the almost certain end of IS romance-wise. My expectations going into IS2 were pretty low, but the show at least didn't fall short of them.

    You know, I'm actually disappointed that NagiKara wasn't terrible. On the other hand, loved Golden Time's premiere. It's like noitamina back in their prime in the mid 2000s
