    Nisemonogatari - Ugh. About half the episodes were good ol' Bakemonogatari style. However the other half was entirely fetish fuel (and not the good kind). Nadeko in ep 2. The whole toothbrush debacle. Araragi groping Hachikuji and Tsuhiki because he can (and ignoring the fact he already has a girlfriend in Hitagi). I donno... it just turned into a predominately fanservice/ecchi show for about half the series albeit in a "Shaft style".

    Another - Excellent for the first 10 episodes, even the beach episode which was a subversion. Then suddenly bam... turned into Battle Royale or Higurashi. Found it unintentionally funny because at how over the the top deaths (and the lolz factor in "Killer Granny") but ultimately they were bad.

    Ano Natsu - Last episode I saw was actually 10 so I need to get a move on with this before new season starts (and Chihayafuru and Natsume too)

    Never watched more than 2 episodes of Inu x Boku SS but from what I've seen, seems like a shojo supernatural series with all that sparkling lol.

    As for next season, I'm most looking forward to Sakamichi no Appollon and Uchuu Kyoudai. The former is no brainer as Watanabe (Cowboy Beboop, Samurai Champloo) is directing it with Yoko Kanno doing the music. The latter, well its a 4-cour space drama series. Since when do we ever see 4-cour+ series outside of big shonen titles! Considering the trailer is giving me strong Planetes Vibes (which is one of my most favourite animes of all time) I have high expectations of this.

    After that comes Fate/Zero, Jormungand and Tsuritsma. Don't really care about Kyoani-ka and Faffing about Box :3.

    Game of Thrones... to be honest this is just in a totally different league to anime. Even during 2011 where it is considered the best year since 2007, my enjoyment for Game of Thrones was higher than Madoka and Steins Gate put together. I know that Fate/Zero fans will disgress, but imo that has absolutely nothing on Game of Thrones. It's no brainer the second season (which started airing yesterday) is highly anticipated for me, moreso than any anime series. I've always loved Sci-fi or Fantasy epics, which are quite rare these days considering entertainment from the "West" largely composes of either sitcoms, crime dramas or superhero adaptations.

    About Renji... hmm. I guess if his voice was a little less deep and he wore a dress (DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT MARI OKADA) then I guess he could pass off as a girl :3.

    Have fun at Sakuracon. Make sure you get some sleep, don't stare at cosplayers for any longer than 2 seconds, stay hydrated and emjoy yourself.

    I've ran into that explanation before. However I do get a whiff of funny business in it anyway. Either it's just a convenient excuse to sell people another set of lenses, or an admission that they've been using sub-par AF-parts all along. Not sure which one is better.

    In DSLRs it's somewhat more understandable that CDAF hasn't been the quickest. Not until video recording became a major part of DSLRs it was just a gimmick and as a result the manufacturers never put all that much effort into its implementation. However CDAF in some new Canons is actually quicker even with lenses made in the 90's than any adapted 4/3 lens I've tried which is something that I find a bit odd.

    The characters morph a bit as I tinker with them but basically they've been pretty stable for a few months.

    The blonde (Kpau) is obviously a "Mugi riff" -- looks like a "good girl" (white/pink) with a 'bright eyed innocence motif but is "most likely to throw herself into the mosh pit".

    The goth loli vamp (Tsika) is sort of my "long running perfect pixie" model ... I tend to make one of her in whatever game I'm playing (mmo, rpg, etc). Sometimes her hair is white, sometimes black. Sharp-witted but kind of amazed anyone finds her attractive since Kpau and Sashiko get most of the fan attention.

    The trance girl (Glycerin) is new for me... I was dinkering with the creator module and she just kind of popped out with those purple eyes peering out from under the shaggy hair and goofy smile. I was just toying with the idea of another opposite for the loli vamp. The blonde and the loli make pretty dramatic light/dark contrasts on stage. Glycerin is goofy, awkward, and shy.

    The drunken Irish girl (Sashiko, I should probably rename her) has been a number of things... Rock Band doesn't do a great job with asian looks (skin shades, eye choices, etc) which was her first incarnation.

    The male (Blargh Umlaut) is my oldest RB character... its really just *me* in cartoon avatar form. I didn't come up with the idea for the origins of the band initially (how they met and grouped), it just kind of evolved to explain why they were playing together.

    Its kind of interesting - these must be primal archetypes for me because every mmo/rpg I ever play has some variation on them. Tsika is an arasai (dark faerie) warlock in EQ2, she's a destruction mage waif in Skyrim, etc etc. Similar stories for the rest.

    You're probably right. Although regarding plot, I didn't really think that Bakemonogatari had too much of one, either... although it was still enjoyable in its own way.

    You might find my recent image album amusing -- it popped into being as a result of the "design your own anime character?" thread. Since I can't draw worth a crap, I used my Rockband avatars as the basis for characters and storyline.

    On another topic, I present you with two hilarious pics . I added them to the Mari Okada club thread.

    Question? Are you following Another by any chance? To me and as the general consensus I think (excluding the Monogatari fanboys lol) I think it's the best of the season. Unfortunately "mystery/horror" is not a popular genre in modern anime so it's been bombing in Japan.

    And oh good luck with uni.

    I understand. From my own time in College/University, I know that it can be hard to balance that with a lot of online activity (particularly through message boards).

    Hope everything goes well for you.
