    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?

    One thing that helped me with the character nominations is that I did three Top 10 of 2011 lists over on the blog Rabbit Poets, and so I simply based my character nominations off of what I had listed there, lol.

    So, for example, Fate/Zero's Rider came No. 5 on my Top 10 Male Anime Characters of 2011 list, and he was the highest ranking Male Supporting character there, so I picked him for my main choice for Male Supporting character of the year. Thankfully, I also remembered that Madhouse's X-Men had the best portrayal of Scott Summers that I've ever seen, so I also nominated him in Male Supporting character category.


    Romance and Fanservice/Ecchi/Moe where my hardest categories. Romance because there weren't many shows this year, that I watched, with great romances (I love Okabe and Kurisu, and I love them together, but we didn't get to see much of them in a romance, but I will say I'll be fine if Steins;Gate wins that category), and Fanservice/Ecchi/Moe because that category still causes me problems (best moe show and best ecchi show are often not one and the same).

    With both categories, I went with Mashiro-iro Symphony because it did have a very nice romance in the end, and I thought what the hell? that show could use a bit more love, so I'll give it a Ecchi/Fanservice/Moe nomination since that category has become my "consolation prize!" category, lol.


    As for my take on the nominations so far, it's pretty positive. I'm honestly pleasantly surprised to see Sayaka Miki as one of the Top 3 or 4 girls in the Female Supporting character category, and I'm also glad to see Rider picking up a lot of nominations in Male Supporting character. And many of my favorite anime characters of 2011 are picking up lots of nominations in other categories too, so that's great.

    I'm also impressed with how the vast majority of AS members are smartly handling the genre categories this year, imo. While Madoka Magica and Steins;Gate are pretty dominant overall, it's nice to see other good shows dominate in specific genre categories that Madoka Magica and/or Steins;Gate would not fit neatly into (like Action/Adventure, where I'm pleased to see Tiger and Bunny doing well last I checked).

    There have been years where I felt one show overly dominated and genre distinctions went by the wayside as such. Thankfully, this is shaping up to be not one of those years.

    Huzzah for Ikoku Meiro being #1, eh? (At least it was for me and Enzo ... it is nice to see you say you fell in love with it, but to the extent of it being #1 for you for the entire year?)

    Here were my top 10 of shows I enjoyed:

    1. Ikoku Meirio no Croise
    2. Usagi Drop
    3. Tamayura Hitotose
    4. The iDOLM@STER
    5. Kimi ni Todoke S2
    6. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai
    7. The World God Only Knows S2
    8. Mashiro-Iro Symphony
    9. Mahou Shoujou Madoka Magica
    10. Gosick

    BTW - you know that a few groups are doing BD of Ikoku, yes? It looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL in 1080p.
