    We've sent a man to the moon, but we can't even create an unfeeling, breathless superbeast? I don't want to live on this earth any longer!

    It's been so long since I even saw Rozen Maiden, almost five years I think. But I love that show. I really do. I don't think I would want another season of BRS now either. What they chose to go with worked, and the ending left me feeling satisfied, not really craving any further explanation.

    I guess she got a little lost in the crowd for me. Huge cast of funny characters in that show. Most of them are just gimmicks (yo, TK), but I enjoyed that glorious mess of catch-phrases and insane antics. Disney Bombs are available at your local nostalgia-store. ....What do you mean that store only exists in my dreams?

    I liked how she played the "lithe girl with the anger of a thousand suns" role. Unlike a lot of characters that are built around that cliche, she actually came across as both likable, and funny. I hate it when the sole reason a character exists is to express rage and threats whenever someone does something stupid. She dodged that bullet and was luckily more than a walking embodiment of indignation.

    I never actually thought too deeply about being cheated out of seeing Shinobu in action before you brought it up, but you are right. That would have been a nice thing to be able to witness. And don't worry about brushing your teeth man, just rinse them out with soda before you go to bed.

    The only thing you got to watch for, I've found, is that when you download too much, you end up with a huge pile of unwatched stuff, which can actually be a little intimidating. You look at that huge collection of folders and files and you might just start feeling like getting through it all is going to be a chore, rather than a privilege. (Just like the crazy cat lady when she's left with the 2000$ a month bill for all of her cat food and replacement couches!) In general, I agree that anything with a huge amount of episodes is going to be a daunting task, and perhaps wear you out, but with Sailor Moon, it's been a breeze. I'm taking it at a very slow pace, so I'm not getting tired of it. At least so far. I'm only 40 episodes in, so who knows if I'll tire of it (or if it'll degrade in quality) eventually.

    Hah, I just took a look at that. But I think you're a bit confused. The reason I, and I assume most decent, upstanding people, watched that show was because of the social experiment aspect. We wanted to see young people under pressure in an environment where they were under the scope of tens of thousands every day, and what sort of effect that would have on their fragile, young psyche. It was an academic endeavor of sorts, yes, you might even call it scientific research.

    It certainly did not have anything to do with so-called "moe" characteristic or adorable young songstresses. Nothing to do with Haruka's kind smile, nothing to do with Chihaya's tender, loving heart YOU JUST WANT TO GIVE HER A HUG DONT YOU. Oh my, where did that come from? And last, but not least, nothing to do with Yayoi's caring attention to her family and hardworking, yet clumsy and adorable personality... Oh for Pete's sake... SO DAMN MOE.

    I need some sleep after that attempt at justifying my addiction. Good talking to you, man.

    Damn. Losing control of my bowels and losing all sense of hunger was what I was really looking forward to the mo-..... yeah, I really don't know where this is going either.

    I literally just thought of it while I was sitting her writing myself. I miss that series. Too bad the third season never came to fruition. BRS certainly was a breath of fresh air. I'd say it was very original in its approach, and I don't think I've seen anything quite like it. The way they went about it with the interaction between the two worlds really stood out as something unique.

    That is the big one I so often forget about when I think about Hanazawa's roles. Not because I dislike it or anything, I tend to just forget that she did it. Angel Beats is a perfect example of the sort of show that should have been longer, I feel. I liked it, but it could have been so much more. The potential was just oozing out of every pore. Pretty damn good show, but with a concept that crazy and visuals that jaw-dropping, I, like Ariel, waaaanted moooooore.

    Tsukihi was hella funny. Her facial expressions were great, and her voice fit perfectly. She got to sort-of-not-really die once, though. I guess that's something. You've got a certain claim to bitterness when we got to see so little of grown up Shinobu, I think. Need some more of that. Need more of everything, really. Except oral insertions. Don't need any more of those.

    No reason not to, unless you're hoarding files like old ladies hoard baleful cats. Yup, 200 episodes. That's all five seasons, baby... plus some movies and stuff. I've watched.... almost one season! And that took me like four months. So I don't expect I'll be wrapping that one up anytime soon, but it's a series that is perfect for short bursts of 2-3 episodes anyway. And the plot is easy to follow, so you can take week-long breaks and then return without any hassle. Perfect for just having a good time with something "completely different", by today's standards. I'm loving it.

    That's what I was thinking. I'd try to compensate for my musical ignorance by describing the mood and effect. I guess in the same way a film critic might sometimes omit mention of camera angles and lightning in favor of the overall effect of the complete product. But no sense over-analyzing it I guess, I'll just try it out sometime and see how it goes.

    So we still get to live our lives? I was imagining more of a dystopian existence where all we did was work, what with not being able to think and all. :P

    Yes, that was a great idea. It's not like it's the first show to have personifications of negative emotions, but the way they approached it was really innovative, especially visually speaking. I was a little reminded of Rozen Maiden at times, but this "otherworld" is a lot... dare I say it... blacker?

    Oh, you better believe I love Hanazawa Kana's softer voices too. She's one of my absolute favorites as well. (Narrowing down my favorite seiyuu to less than 5 is... very hard.) Shiori, Shiro, Charlotte, Mikan, and of course, Sengoku. All amazing performances that just melt my black heart faster than a blowtorch. It's still nice to see her not being type-cast and flexing some versatility-muscle now and then.

    I don't mind short shows at all. 13 episodes is a great length for a series, if it's handled right. Elfen Lied, Sora no Woto, Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin, Sola, heck, even classics like Lain, Paranoia Agent and Boogiepop Phantom, all with tightly woven plots, were 12-13 episodes. And they all rocked. What I don't like is when shows that obviously need their time and space are cut down for economic reasons.

    I think Nise could have benefited from a couple of more episodes focusing on Tsukihi. Her arc was super-short. Even though BRS started off as an OVA, I don't think that necessitates a running time this short. They upped the ante and included a wider circle of characters, so I think they could have taken it in any direction they wanted. I did like the outcome though, so this isn't as much a complaint, I'm just wondering what could have been if they had a full cour of episodes to play with.

    Heh, it's been a good while since I downloaded a batch. I've got so much stuff on my computer (200 episodes of Sailor Moon, a handful of long-postponed series and a dozen movies) that the only thing I ever download is weekly episodes. (And those keep me so occupied I hardly ever get to move through my backlog anyhow :P)

    That would be cool. I'm less confident about how much I'll be able to write about an opening/ending segment, though. I need more to work with, I feel. That's pretty much why I don't do week-by-week episode write-ups, I don't feel I'm able to conjure up that much to say about each and every episode. I also don't have musical knowledge... at all. But we'll see, I might dip my toes in the icy water. :P

    Don't bet on it. Those self-thinking production-bots will be covetable resources! Every second-rate dictator and multinational corporation is going to want to monopolize that market! (But who would they sell them to? I do not know.)

    Those girls had issues. Not that I'm one to judge. Yomi was hard to please, though.

    "I'm trapped in an abusive relationship! >-<"
    "Yay, now I got a friend in Mato! =)"
    "But I'm not her only and best friend... >_____________<"

    I actually liked that a lot. It was interesting and unexpected to see a character respond in that way to what was undeniably a highly positive development in her life. Because that is how real people act. Especially people who are psychologically scarred. They're not that easy to please, and even positive changes might result in even bigger issues. (Personal experience, heh.) I'm not saying BRS was a psychological tour de force, but the characters were developed with a sense of originality and genuineness.

    Oh, and I just loved Hanazawa in this show. Sort of a low-key performance, not her usual hyper-moe (which I also love), but very fitting for the character.

    Shouting at the screen? Damn, looking forward to that! I'm happy to see that it's going to be a full 26 episodes as well. Too many series skimp out on episodes these days. Like BRS. :P

    Neat. I know you're a busy man, so don't force yourself. (However awesome the series might be.... )

    That sounds like a really cool idea. You're good at coming up with segments, and this one is one that I'd be extra interested in reading. I love openings and endings, they help so much in establishing a series' mood and atmosphere, and also in cementing the series in your memory. Listening to a good opening can just make you recall everything you loved about a series instantly. Not to mention they often put some great animation into those sequences, so there's a lot to comment on there I'm sure.

    Ah, the day they invent servant robots, humanity is doomed to obesity. Oh, wait, the obesity thing already happened.

    Aye, I just read your post today and saw what you thought about BRS. I largely agree with that too. I thought it was a good show. The idea is genuinely interesting, and the imagery is really cool. Also, as you put it, everything, characters included, are insane.

    I don't doubt that for a second.

    Thanks! Did you say you checked out Chihayafuru? Let me know if you like it, that would be awesome. (But hey, reading my review and liking that is more than good enough already! ) It was nice reading your post again too (especially since we agreed about pretty much everything you watched :P), I'll make a similarly themed one soon. Funny how we both got back into the game at almost the same time. Although you did spur me on, so it's not entirely coincidental.

    Getting off your lazy ass is actually the hardest part, even harder than beginning. I forgot to include that. I guess that means once you've actually gotten off your lazy ass, and then begun, like 90% of the work is already behind you?

    Cool, cool. I just finished Zero no Tsukaima last night myself. I rather liked it. Not as good as the first season, but better than the second and the third, I thought. (Rushed ending, but I'm really glad they went with a serious end and not a "let's all hug Saito" harem shot.) Nise we've already talked about, and Amagami was enjoyable. I liked the shorter format, I thought it fit the series well now that we've established the characters, and they sure saved the best for last! (Well, the actual last episode is a hot springs one, so maybe not. :P) How about BRS, did you end up not finishing/enjoying that?

    Looking forward to Another then, I really am. Mirai Nikki too, which I put on hold at episode 12 to wait for it to complete. It felt like an experience I wanted to complete in a couple of sittings, not stretched out with waiting periods. Really looking forward to seeing how everything pans out there too.

    Aye, there's enough bad stuff to go around, so we better.

    We'll see. My doctor says it might be escalating. Might even hit around Easter! .... but no pressure!

    Getting started is so often the hardest part of anything. It's true that a good beginning means you're halfway there.

    By the way, did you finish anything else from this season yet? If so, what did you think? But no plot spoilers for Another, I've yet to see that! (I'd love to hear if you thought if it was good if you did finish it, though.) I'm a huge horror fiction fan, and horror anime come around so very rarely.

    I am not really that fussy of a person when it comes to games, as long as the mechanics work (as in no glitches, I don't mind over complicated or confusing mechanics) and the story is a little interesting I usually enjoy it. I know that the PS3 is a lot nicer then the Wii, I honestly just bought to wii to play the Fire Emblem game on it xD. It really is, gaming is becoming a little too much of a business instead of a entertainment form in my opinion.

    Yeah, it was that and Inuyasha that I watched first pretty much. Yeah I noticed that, I never really got a chance to watch it, but I did get to watch AnoHana over my break, and I enjoyed that quite a lot.

    I will check them up as I said, and no problem, don't worry about it at all.
