    Whenever you're in the mood for something emotionally intense again, give this manga a try. In the event you don't like it the story sits at one volume so you've got nothing to lose. I recommended it to LS a while ago but I don't know if he followed through on it yet.

    Joyeux Nol, trips.

    Well, let's see. Accounting exam went well. Summer fruits are in good supply, better enjoy them while I can. It's damn hot here, hit 42 degrees a couple of days ago (and had to go catch up with 2 friends in that heat and get my DVD of Marimite S1 from them). General agreeance between us that 2012 was Year of the Brain Dead (although they enjoyed more of the brain-dead titles than I did). Golden Boy is going to win the 2012 AJAS poll on a landslide at this rate. (I knew I picked the right episode to screen on that ecchi night. ^^; )

    Watching titles with my my anime senpai on Sunday yielded interesting conversation. Hard to tell which of us despised Psycho Pass more. Its inferior replication of Blade Runner's setting and the world scenario of Minority Report is insulting. The backflip on 'no moe characters' was laughable. And it was hard to tell which of us was infuriated more by the content on mood of Psycho Pass. The treatment of characters in general is just as I'd expect from Urobuchi and I don't see how the degree of it is justified. 'hurting/killing the characters he loves most' I get but...what happens in that show is pointlessly cruel. Btoooooom invoked the same feeling in both of us. (He normally isn't caused to feel like that due to his higher tolerance levels, so the fact these shows are making him angry says a lot.) K is one he laments - pretty visuals but so devoid in every other department. He likes Girls und Panzer and Chuunibyou more to laugh at than laugh with but they suffice for him this season, I couldn't get anything from them. Shin Sekai Yori - well, perhaps that's the most lamentable of them all...yeh, I get what they're trying to do. Dystopia, humans gaining the power of gods and misusing it, psychological rantings, but...its execution is just farcical. Serial Experiments Lain is still the best executor of that scenario by light years, I feel. Ghost Hound's similar psychological rantings were made somewhat more interesting even if paced painfully slow. Dennou Coil I didn't enjoy, but it was well constructed for its audience and overcome its slow start to go into something significant. SSY - eps 5-8 turned farcical with its production values, show takes so darn long to get to the point, characters are rather placid and nothing that demands their attention. I feel the SSY adaptation is a classic exampe of how NOT to do an adaptation. Rather disgusted with A-1 Pictures, they've been in good form but this is a major negative for them as far as I'm concerned.

    However, out of all of this...my senpai did find one that slipped under my radar from the October season that I actually quite like. It happens to be Sukitte Iinayo. I do get it is a compressed adaptation and skips a fair bit of content, but I don't think it is a crippling hinderance. The only major fault I'd put against the show is that Yamato doesn't have the FAbulous factor he does in the manga version's art. However the rest of the characters do. Mei is such a wonderful character and I love the way she forced Yamato to stop being like a player and that she wouldn't tolerate his carefree attitude if he wanted to get close to her. Aiko and Megumi being sinister than getting gradual redemption without sugar-coating is a major plus and refreshing to see more realistic portrayls of high school female-female bullying. Visuals are nice, music is darn good. Yamato gradually manning up and becoming worthy of Mei while Mei gradually opens up to him and others to be worthy of Yamato is touching. It's got a degree of sweetness similar to Kimi ni Todoke but not to a diabetic level, yet has the angsty side of iot all that something like Bokura ga Ita had but not to the degree that made characters unlikeable. Watching all 12 available episodes in the one day says how much I like this one. I'll be sad to see it end on the 30th.

    So I'd say my feelings about this year would end up like this:

    The titles I liked:

    #5 - Amagami SS - 7/10
    #4 - Mysterious Girlfriend X - 7.5/10
    #3 - Sword Art Online - not sure, I need to watch more, I stopped at ep12 after people across all nodes of fandom and anti-fandom were being a complete bunch of pricks.
    #2 - Sukitte Iinayo - 9/10
    #1 - Natsuyuki Rendezvous - 9.25/10

    Overhyped title of the year - Fate/Zero
    Disappointment of the year - Shin Sekai Yori
    Disgustment of the year - Psycho Pass
    Whatever of the year - Don't Forget Your Toothbrush scene in Nise
    Summary of the year - Year of the Brain Dead

    In closing, have a good Christmas and Slay Belle Katarina sends you her regards.

    I will have to contest your custom title. There is no actual yuri in Shin Sekai Yori. There are people playing the role of walking sex toy.

    Anime industry, I am disappoint. Again.

    A "relaxed" internet forum can easily turn into a more inactive, and/or less interesting, one. I've seen it happen on many other internet forums before. Just something to think about.

    Perhaps losing the rep system is for the best, but it might not be. Honestly, the way I've seen you and some other people post it's like you're actively trying to convince yourselves that losing the rep system is for the best. If the change was so clearly beneficial, would you have to be doing that?
    Ok, please don't pm me about that topic, because inbox is nearly full. Trying to leave room for the holiday greetings which would be incoming soon. If it's discussions regarding the rep system, let's just do it at the rep thread. Quote me there, and I'll reply in kind.

    Hi, I noticed that you're still watching Psycho-pass. I effectively dropped it around the 6th episode or so. Should I give it a second chance?
