    Thanks for the info. Well, to be fair, it did have an interesting first episode. I actually liked the bit where the girl got her knee stuck in the drain and almost died. It's strange, sure, but it's also pretty different, so I liked that scene.

    I will be sticking with Brynhildr for at least the three-episode try. Kuroneko does show a lot of promise.

    I'm slowly making my way through the new Spring 2014 shows.

    I liked the first episodes for WIXOSS, Captain Earth, and Akuma no Riddle. All three have very nice/stylish visuals, so at least I'll be in for a good visual treat even if the stories don't hold up that well.

    I'm loving the Love Live! sequel, as its pretty much just what I want in a more upbeat show.

    I'll be checking out Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei later tonight.

    Any shows you want to recommend? I'm open to a suggestion or two, at least.

    That's fine, but why Lesnar of all people?

    No real legacy to build, no careers to set up.

    It is, but selfishly it would be nicer to know a publisher was willing to translate all her novels into English...

    I'm really glad too. Sometimes you feel the awards are just a meaningless gesture, but hey sometimes faith gets rewarded.

    Also, Shinkai's working on something again.

    Thanks a lot for that! It might be awhile before I reply to it though, just so you know.

    Today was busy for me between a Montreal Canadiens hockey game and Thursday being my biggest anime-watching day of Winter 2014.

    The White Day art was great in general. But yes, what I *really* liked was the Madoka girls. They came up with some really nice "normal clothes" for the main cast. So thanks a lot for sharing!

    So I finally got done with my placements for this season, got put right back into Plat. 5 which I am glad about, would have liked to went higher but I would have screamed if they put me back into gold 1 again. I really don't see the issue with mid, it feels the same to me as it was last season for the most part, only difference is that vi and panth are coming out of the jungle instead of lee and elsie .

    For me I guess my play list would look like:

    Top - Shen
    Jungle - Amumu, Vi
    AD carry - Kog'Maw (He's still relevant, don't jungle me :'( )
    Support - Annie, Soraka, Janna
    Mid Lane - Annie, Malzahar, Xerath

    The whole Mikasa's abs thing is stupid. Interestingly it was started because the author received demands for fanservice, and as you can see he pretty much decided to not demean his characters to that kind of bullshit. People don't get it.

    Anohana is centered around Menma as a plot device, but in reality most of the show is about the characters. Understandably, this is still a weakness but I don't think it's as pronounced as many would claim. The end kinda went off the rails and wasn't that good, but I don't think it really matters.

    I'm not exactly convinced that shounen is some kind of sinkhole, considering that Fist of the North Star and the Togashi Duo of Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter have developed some of the most notable characters and meaningful relationships between the male characters as well. And what about Kenshin? Which of course brings up male characters in anime. I think there are a lot of good male characters ranging from the cold and calculating Akagi to the ever so pouring his heart out Kaiji. Attack on Titan itself has strong characters in the form of Armin and Levi, both of which show their care for others in an exceptional way through development in the form of the former, and character revelation in form of the later. Sure, I would say that Eren's single minded potential sociopathic tendencies probably made him an inferior lead but that's how the cookie crumbles. The fandom is irritating as hell and should be ignored.

    Steins;Gate has Okabe, who develops into someone that must balance reality with wish as well as dealing with circumstances he is most uncomfortable with on a constant basis.

    The relationship between the four male characters in Little Busters! are the main strength of the show; a feat that is fairly unusual for its genre. The concept of group camaraderie is exceptional and reminds me of older Star Trek; another series that focused more on interpersonal bonds in the context of ridiculous happenings.

    Fate/Zero has one of the most interesting antagonist-antihero relationships, though certainly Kirei has more to talk about than Emiya. And as a side note, I think it showcased Rin's character as a little girl more effectively than Deen had portrayed her.

    And what about Ghost in the Shell; Batou and Togusa are on different levels cybernization and the story went into their thoughts concerning their humanity rather well. And then there's the subtly paternal leader with Aramaki, who does care deeply for section 9 and pulled all the stops and gambits so that they all could succeed.

    I never really saw the Major as an object of desire or wish fulfillment. You can accuse the movie of sexualizing her, but I really don't think it's any more overt than anything else anime tosses at us. As for the perception of intention, it may or may not be intentional.

    I think there is a tendency to focus too much on the Shus of anime. And there are certainly many like him, but there's way more than it, even in anime, just like there are many repulsive portrayals of females in anime.
