    Yeah, you pretty much summed up how I feel.

    And going through Yamato from the 70s has given me more satisfaction than anything from the last year so I may stay back in time for a while.

    Saw this on LS's wall:

    (then again, I think it's just a general reminder of how low Noitamina had sunk, as I had feared it would, despite trying to deny it for the longest time, but I digress)
    Just in case you didn't know noitamina -may- be getting back their gold standard next season(whether it lasts though is a totally different question) with Sakamichi no Apollon (Shinichiro Watanabe x Yoko Kanno) and Tsuritsma (Kenji Nakamura).

    Hmm, noitaminA have resorted to this because anything they try now within their former target audience just isn't selling. And when AnoHana, Guilty Crown and inevitably Black Rock Shooter are getting them money, what can one expect?

    About to do the third and final day or an orientation week stall to round up new people for the local anime club. Still wondering how on earth Nisemonogatari Episode 8 has cuased such a ruckus simply due to brushing teeth...And yeah, all the insanity going on with this January 2012 season has left me unable to enter it and I'll be marathoning Space Battleship Yamato over the weekend instead.

    So, how goes it again?

    Sounds like Okada is giving you the best of times and worst of times. Same as she always does, heh.

    Well... she's being kept in check by Aquarion standards, which is barely restraining her, I guess? But yeah, the way I see it, it turns out she may actually be a good fit for such a series, and the director is at least doing a good job at keeping the through line fairly consistent... basically, it doesn't suffer from a shocking contrast between Okadarage moments and the rest, which is what I've come to expect from her involvement after certain series. Then again, it may just work out because we're still in the school hijinks stage, and I do hope this won't take a turn for the worse when the series goes into serious mode in the second half. I can't say I'm not worried about some kind of trap as well, but as you've said, it's at least definitely fun for now.

    On Aquarion EVOL... I haven't watched the original series at all. I think the main impact of this is that the first big double-sized episode was a bit of a hurdle for me to get over due to the foreign terminology being thrown around, but I found that it didn't take me long to more or less "get" the terminology after that.

    The last few episodes have all been easy enough to understand. While I'm sure certain references are lost on me, I'm still able to thoroughly enjoy the show. And the mecha fights in this show really are quite good, imo. It also has one of the best love triangles I've seen in awhile, where I like both of the girls in it. I'd encourage you to give Aquarion EVOL a try if you get a chance.

    Thought I'd reply to this bit: I don't think very highly of the first season either (dropped somewhere around episode 10 a long time ago, I can barely remember anything and can't seem to manage to get into it again due to not liking most of the characters)... but EVOL is a totally different deal. I don't think missing out on the reincarnation discussion is necessarily a huge loss (and that's about all you'd be missing on, assuming you do remember the great AKINO songs, because that's the only thing still fresh in my mind from Sousei no Aquarion). I was also very wary of Okadastrophe at first but I actually think Yamamoto Yuusuke is doing a good job at keeping her in check... (though I do like to blame her for the most wtf-tastic parts!)

    Anyway, I wish you'd go ahead and give it a try.

    Heh, I've decided to just be happy at the amount of chocolate I get due to today's double booking of sorts. XD

    Three cheers for another vote for Ikoku Meiro for anime 2011 #1 slot!

    Am also glad you seemed to enjoy iM@S as much as I did, and as for Usagi Drop, what normal human being could NOT be moved by such a beautiful adaptation of such a beautiful story?
