    Not many people here actually HATE Madoka, so you kind of stand out that way.

    But still, those are good points you made about what might have factored into Zac's review. I don't doubt Zac really did like Madoka Magica, but he might have gone extra-soft on them to stay in the good graces of Aniplex.

    As for Liar Game, I'll keep it in mind!

    You might be interested to know that ANN's Zac, of all people, loved Madoka Magica Volume 1.

    I actually tend to view Zac as a sort of "gateway to the west". That's not to say that I agree with Zac's tastes all that much, just that I think he's very representative of your North American anime fan who never took to the moe boom (i.e. a large chunk of that late 90s wave of anime fans I've seen you refer to).

    Prior to reading Zac's review, I honestly thought that Madoka wasn't going to do that hot in the western marketplace (due to it being an absolute marketing nightmare in most western markets), but now I'm not so sure.


    What do you think, LS?

    Ah, I got you.

    But now that you mention years, do you have anything to say about 2009? AFAIK it was this one that attracted the ire of a lot of people (although I rather loved 09. It was 2010 that was the weak link for me), and given most of the reasons I've heard, I would think you share their thoughts on this one, but I don't want to make any assumptions.

    And by the way,

    Hey LS.

    I noticed your conversation with Tempester on Penguindrum, iDOLM@STER and eventually Madoka (you just love that last one being mentioned, don't you?), and there was something you brought up that I can't wrap my head around:

    That an anime being something Westerners wouldn't understand, or being targeted at Otakus, or being aimed at the Japanese is a detriment to the show's quality.

    Methinks that a Japanese animation studio making a show for, well, the Japanese would be the first priority. So basically, why would the trollish reactions of other people--who are probably not ingratiated into anime to begin with--matter in regards to what you think of a series?

    Not trying to force anything on you, but I'm just wondering.

    It's too early to tell, but I think 2012 has decided to relive the 1990s age. I've heard a lot about some anime series looking like productions from the 90s, but of course, the presence of sequels reassures us that we're still on the 2010s.

    I have picked up four series from this season (Another, Highschool DxD, Nisemonogatari and BRS). Meanwhile, all of the series in the Autumn 2011 season gets on hold... yet again.

    Finishing one's backlog is easier said than done.

    Sounds legit; I would be pretty surprised if Bryan entered Wrestlemania as the champion.

    I truly question the presence of squid girl up that high, but I mean, the only real difference between that and a lot of other people is simply the amount of older series being incorporated into your viewing schedules. It looks fairly typical for people who are not that into moe.

    It's an alright list.

    Before the Rumble match (Cena/Kane on now), I predict that Wade Barrett will win.
