    I should bother to reply since you've been lurking for a while. What's up, man? How's life these days? Liking anything airing this season?

    Being told one thing and actually knowing it are different. Still a friend is different from a mother, so at least with Lindy she should have some reservations.

    Of course it's possible it happened between seasons, in which case it sure would have been nice to have seen it.

    Eh, her 'dependancy' on Nanoha isn't shown very explicitly. Fate lived literally all of her life trying to please Precia so I think she should have transfered that over to Lindy or Nanoha because at that point that's the only way she knew how to live. I think she should have focused on doing whatever Lindy/Nanoha wanted her to do, cringing in fear of being hated if either of them suggested she did something she shouldn't have, and being a bit lost when asked to do something for herself.

    Old habits die hard so it would take awhile before she got used to the idea that life is more than devoting herself to one person and that no one else will treat her the way Precia did.

    I don't have that big a problem with how it was actually portrayed. It's not a deal breaker for me but I think the change should have been more gradual than it was.

    Like I said, I think the movie manga did it better. Fate's entire sense of self was based on Precia's approval. When Precia denounced her, Fate lost all her self worth. She was resistant to becoming friends with Nanoha afterwards because she didn't think she deserved it. So Nanoha had to give her a good blasting

    Fate had a heavily dependant personality, though. That she gained independance so quickly, especially at her age, feels far too unnatural. I think she should have shifted that dependancy onto either Nanoha or Lindy to make it more believable.

    I think the movie 1st manga handled it better.

    Try to get real and accept the fact that she's not as awesome as i believed she is, if i let my expectations go too high like in the past. For example, her fight with Nanoha on the StrikerS special chapter was absolutely INCREDIBLE! i was very impressed and reafirmed Signum as my favourite character, tanking everything and emerging from the inferno created by the White Devil whitstanding her wounds and preparing her explosive counterattack(STURMFALKEN!) i never expected to find that she's in reality a frail person who becomes uncouncious after just one impaling. Like Nanya said it was horrible the idea i had of her got challenged. I don't want to feel like that again so i guess mantaining my expectations low save me more deceptions.

    Still when i look back i can't deny that she's indeed my favourite character not only because she was an amazing fighter but also for her firm personality and high ideals(i've done my best effort to embrace Cypha as a cool and better character than Signum but it was futile i can't force myself to like her, i find her personality very disgusting). Because of that my reactions vary from day to day, depending on the mood i guess.

    Couldn't give a tossbag about ISML since it's blatanty obvious Kanade will win with ease.

    I simply think 2011 anime is pure crap. Shaft and KyoAni are my nemeses and P.A. Works is about ready to enter that category too.

    I'm sickened by how many people go 'but pre-2000 anime has animation that just doesn't come close enough to current standards.' And it's weak excuses like that which allows the studios of today to get away with crap stories and formulaic characters, because people are willing to settle for glitzy animation and bathing in tryptophan. It's pathetic. Denying anime's roots and heritage is appalling. Amongst our club in Adelaide, there hasn't been anyone attending that hasn't regretting taking the plunge into retro anime. But anywhere else, they're scared to go back beyond 2 years or a few might just make it to the 90s.

    Modern anime has made the fans of today to completely disregard the people which strived to evolve the artform to what it has become today. It's sacrilege. People have become the 'instant gratification' generation - it's chilling. It's just like Huxley, Orwell and Bradbury predicted.

    And I'm not down. I'm raging.

    My 10s go to Last Exile, Kimagure Orange Road, Code Geass, Sherlock Hound, Tatami Galaxy and Beyond the Clouds: The Promised Place. Considering 10s for Cutey Honey, Rose of Versailles and Garden of Sinners, need to see them in full, as well as rewatch Redline.

    I'd flood 2011 anime with 0s.

    The main expansion of ISML was last year. This year, numbers are slightly up but not by much and there's a base that is too dominant. KS and co. have dropped the ball - they need to promote it on more places otherwise it really is going to be Chinese Saimoe rather than International.

    I love Kaiji Season 1. In my top 10 of all time for sure. Killer music, Kaiji being one defiant clown that always digs a deeper hole yet still gets out over and over, great voice acting. Haven't been able to click with season 2, though. Music is terrible this time, and I hate the new way they're doing 'zawa zawa'! S1 'zawa zawa' was win! S2's version are just half-hearted and anti-climactic! Just not quite enough for me to care about it. S1, I watched it in full three times within two weeks. S2, I just can't mesh with it...

    I'll be making a thread for the panel videos after the convention. Suki can pay out my newly 30-year old hide, but Adelaide will show the world what we can do and that anime's roots are essential viewing.
