    Honestly, I don't feel as if I went in desperate to like it so much as curious to see what all the fuss was about. And there's been plenty of stuff I wanted to like (the 2nd season of Baka Test as an example) that did nothing for me whatsoever.

    I suppose there is a switch from josei to shoujo, but I think there are still some strong josei elements in the second half (at least so far). The kinds of issues dealt with are pretty dreary for a shoujo manga, and Daikichi still plays a pretty large role. I haven't participated in the discussions (I dare not) but I'd have thought that fans were at least as upset that the focus changed from Daikichi and Rin's relationship to Kouki's travails, and how they intersect with Rin and even Daikichi (who he still clearly sees as a parent). As I always liked that character it probably bothers me less than it would some.

    Through ch. 35 of the Usagi Drop manga (Rin just confronted Akari about her big lie). I have to say, I like this 2nd half a lot so far. It's still a damn good manga.

    So what tickles your fancy most for the upcoming season which is less than a week away? I guess Fate/Zero, UN-GO and Horizon were the ones that caught my eye at first glance. Interestingly Siren has already picked up UN-GO, which is interesting because Siren's pre-emptive licenses have been good ones overall this year. Hope it's a good one because Bones need cash big time.

    Sorry to hear you have a cold. Hope you're getting over at.

    That was quite a stirring piece you did on plot twists in your latest piece. Frankly, if there is one thing that has bugged me with current anime, it is the relative stale nature of their plots. There isn't much surprise, if any at all, with the majority of them. Yet, I can't help but feel that is by design though. Characters are the focal point of the modern era. Story's relevance has been diminshed signifcantly in the last 2 decades. Now while some may argue that it has been the case since the Baroque-style period ended and post-Verne shifted to a more Orwellian style, when I think about literature and media, they are mainly selling themselves through their characters these days. One cour series don't open themselves up for much forgiveness with plot progression. If there's another thing I haven't liked about recent anime, it's how off the pacing has been with a lot of titles. Filler episodes will usually backfire and derail the impact of the final climax. But it happens so much lately.

    Just quickly on K-ON, more popular shows polarise people more often than not. So take that with a pinch of salt. Popular things will always attract significant amounts of haters. The thing is, I've never felt more neutral about any show than K-ON. I'm not a K-ON hater nor am I a K-ON liker. It's the only show where I felt no different seeing all of it compared to how I felt before I did. I can easily make a case for both sides and why people on either side are justified on feeling what they do. It's inevitable I get asked to review it so I will have to detail it sometime in the future.

    On that, some local licensing companies have started sending me some of their titles on DVD on a regular basis, so I started up my anime blog this week. Address is here. Will need some cosmetic adjustments but for now I just want to start it and have some discussion going. Let me know what you think. My first series of reviews is going to be a Bunny Drop - Kamichu - Asatte no Houkou - Kurenai chain with the common theme being 'Precocious Girls.'

    It just so happens that I AM taking up Screenwriting for this term, as a prep for the Screenwriting Workshop next semester. It's been a real eye-opener, especially for someone like me who just watches a show, and doesn't nitpick about the details of a plot (why should I if I'm enjoying myself?) too much. I've learned since to pay attention, particularly about whether or not a work follows the expected formula (its a formula that is followed particularly because it's successful), whether it goes against the vein, and whether or not a particular execution of said formula succeeds or crashes and burns.

    On a related note, the aspects of my screenplay (as detailed in my journal) are built around the following: a smart, skinny, but bratty girl named Sandra, who likes pink stuff, toys, and likes to throw tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants, a pink starfish, and a cigarette. And I'm expected to write a 100-page screenplay out of these by the end of the term?

    I suppose I dodged some bullets though, as some of my classmate's selections (we picked out characters and items from a bunch of index cards scattered on a table) were plain weird.

    I don't mind if people dislike the old banners and the gradient itself. I Heard my share of critique back in the day and it never bothered me much.

    I did replied to your comment mostly to clear out any possible confusion regarding the thread and it's purpose.

    It's just that a few minor things gave me the impression that maybe the AS Moderating Staff were "pulling for orange", but perhaps I was wrong there.
    As a bit of a reference, I have been pulling for a night theme for several years now and the theme always get rejected at one point or another.

    My favorite, though, was everyone standing around giving exposition for 20 minutes for no reason. And then the elder bairn pops up, but it politely disappears for the last 3 minutes so they can finish their expositing!

    Well, make no mistake - I don't think it's trying to be funny. I just think we're privileged to witness a disaster that comes along only rarely, an anime so misguided and incompetent that it achieves a kind of idiotic perfection.

    Dude, seriously, a very sad situation in Blood-C? You're kinder than I, because I was laughing my ass off. Which is good, as I've finally found some way this debacle works for me - as a comedy.

    I see you've been in a war of words about why Tiger and Bunny is selling like it is.

    It's simple, actually. Friend explained it to me last week.

    Take one look at Pixiv at present.

    It's utterly dominated by Tiger & Bunny fanart, because that's what the majority of the female artists there want to draw at present.

    So Sunrise felt the need to school Bones in the art of being FAB-ulous with mechs involved because Bones made considerable money off of Star Driver. Meh. Completely non-plussed about it.

    And it took me quite a while to figure out who that was in your avatar - huh.
