    That's certainly the right attitude.

    Good luck with that, it seems like an ungodly frustrating game, especially those driving stages. Just watching them was painful.

    I don't imagine it'll get that much better, but if there's a sudden spike in quality, I'll be sure to let you know. I've said this before, but I just wish the character of Tifania wasn't in the show, it seems like her primary function really is boob jokes, and that's dumb and wrong on so many levels.

    They're not pressing them in our face like before, so it's okay.
    I see what you did there. You made a boob joke yourself!

    That's good to know, you're highly organized. I like that. It's rare that I find a soundtrack like that, but it sure is great once it does happen.

    I hope you do find some gold, he has a treasure trove of goods under his belt if you dig his style.

    I concur completely.

    Aye, it's certainly nothing approaching Clannad level by any feasible stretch of the imagination. I'm just hoping it won't be outright exploitation. I have a relatively high tolerance level for that kind of stuff, but if they keep downplaying the loss of both parents and abuse that premise for lame sexual jokes, I'm out of there quicker than the roadrunner. As for ZnT, I'm expecting a few more breast jokes per episode, really. But as long as it doesn't get as bad and frequent as it was in the third season, I'll tolerate it.

    With a torrent of that size, it would be a downright proof of divine providence if there wasn't something I didn't particularly love. As long as I find even a few songs per album, or even per folder, in there, I'm golden. I'll be sure to try out some of your other favorite soundtracks eventually, I'm sure there's a lot of good stuff in there. I download soundtracks far too infrequently, really.

    Something worth looking into when you get the time, but I know how it is, there's always a hundred things on the agenda. A lot of his shows are quirky comedies too, so there's a substantial element of hit and miss to his works. (Though I've never seen one I didn't at the very least "like.")

    And at the risk of sounding like a far-left corporate-hating hippie, things tend to get messy when money gets involved. It's just not the same when he has to make a video every week to keep the revenue flowing as it was when it was just spontaneous passion.

    I would tend to agree. If the build up is just plain uninteresting entirely, then it's hard to justify sticking with it. I actually saw the first three episodes of Papa, and I'm unsure as to whether or not to continue it eventually or not. It has cute character designs and decent humor, but I'm just not sure if they're exploiting something as serious as the death of three young girls' parents for plot convenience or not. Also not working in its favor is perhaps a new low for anime; a three year old grabbing someone's boobs. I really don't want to know who wanted that scene in there. ZnT does focus a good deal on the plot so far, but to me it's more of a backdrop to the characters. It's enjoyable, but not really engaging. They have, like you mentioned, cut down significantly on the oh-so-hilarious breast related humor that seemed to permeate every second of the third season, and that's certainly a good, good move, and one I really hoped they would make.

    I likely won't be needing any more suggestions in the near future when I've got that list to work with. In large part due to me often listening to the whole album if I end up enjoying the song you first suggested. I'm really, really loving Agent Yoru wo Yuku still, as well as Watashi wa Idol from the same CD. I'll be stuck on those two for a few days, I think. I'd love to check out some more anime soundtracks once I've run through, or need a break from, the Idolmaster collection though!

    In anime particularly, that is very true. I don't know how many other of Akiyuki Shinbo's shows you've seen, but if you're enjoying Bake/Nise in large part due to the art, there's a good ten or so shows directed by him and animated by Shaft that are done in the same style that you might enjoy. (Though Bakemonogatari is my favorite of the bunch.)

    I think the thing with Nostalgia Critic is that he's just run out of stuff. Like, a long time ago. I liked it when it was shorter, tighter and with stuff you know he'd actually seen. Like Street Fighter the movie, Power Rangers and Duck Tales. Now it's like random movies he likely never even saw as a kid, and that are neither glorious trainwrecks nor nostalgia-trips; they're just unimpressive pieces of mediocrity. But hey, I guess it's nothing really worth ranting over. There's always a good hundred or so videos of good stuff that he made, and that's impressive in its own right.

    It's a platitude, I know, and more-so it doesn't really lend an iota of comfort *while* you're dealing with whatever you're going though. But it's the best I had. ^^

    Very, very rarely do I have a problem with something being too slow. I'm very patient as long as it feels like there's a chance for good development later on. I look forward to picking up more stuff, and getting up to date to with the stuff I'm already following. I agree that Zero no Tsukaima has been fairly good. It's certainly better than the third season, and I can forgive some of the suspension-of-disbelief-breaking moments because I've sort of abandoned my desire for a compelling plot. I just want some good character interactions with a nice setting as a backdrop. That, and Kugimiya Rie, Horie Yui and Mamiko Noto. (The latter's talent sadly being wasted on a horrible, horrible character. But what'cha gonna do.)

    As long as you're not neglecting anything, it's certainly not too much for me! It'll likely take me a while to get through it, but once I do, I'll have greatly expanded my knowledge of all things Idolmaster. I listened to Agent Yoru wo Yuku, which I really liked. It had a western vibe, which I love, and I ended up listening to the whole album and a couple of the other albums in the same folder. The list is proving itself useful already!

    It's cool that we agree on that much. Of course, a nice art style doesn't save a show, but it's a nice touch that helps endear it to the viewer.

    Spoony and James Rofle are really the only people I watch, and even Spoony I'm not on a watch-on-release basis with. I completely agree with you about NC. I used to love him, and his old stuff is great, but I just don't find the stuff he's been doing the last year or so any fun, so I've stopped watching him.

    Oh, that's too bad. Do what you can to work through it. As cliched as it sounds, some things just need time. I experienced that just recently myself. Something troubled me greatly for two-three days, but now I'm past it, through virtually no effort of my own; just the passing of time.

    I'm glad to hear that, especially in regards to Another. Nise and Mirai Nikki I expect to be good, but Another I know nothing about except the basic premise, so that's good news. The only reason I haven't started any of that is just a general bad mood. Not feeling up to picking up anything serious, so I either watch nothing, or more fluffy stuff like Amagami and ZnT.

    I get that, it's enjoyable to share things you enjoy, but you did it in such meticulous detail! I'll have myself a little listen-session while I work later today.

    I think Un-Go's largest problem (except for its ridiculous name) was the self-indulgence of the main character. At the end of the second episode, I believe, he gave one of the most shallow and pretentious speeches, completely unprovoked, that almost made me enunciate "What. The. Fuck." out loud. But on the whole, I found it original and fairly captivating. I loved the "Darker Than Black"-like character designs too, that sort of art style is one of my favorites.

    Yeah, he's an eccentric character, and I rather like him too. I don't watch reviews all that often anymore, but he is one of the guys I do check out once I get the urge.

    Well, good on you for doing alright on the midterms, at least. That's too bad about the blog, just when you snagged someone who matched your posting capacity. I shan't push the issue, I can only hope it wasn't anything too troubling.

    Sounds like there's a lot of cool stuff going on. I've watched a bit of Zero no Tsukaima and Amagami, both of which have been largely entertaining, but none of the other as of yet. I'll try to get my act together soon. I just can't force it, you know, it has to be natural, otherwise it'll be half-assed enjoyment, and great anime deserve better than that.

    It's quite a list, man. I really appreciate it, thanks for taking the time to do something that elaborate. I'll surely check out the songs I haven't heard yet (which is like 80% of the list.) I'm sure I'll find a lot of stuff to enjoy, thanks!

    Hook me up with a top ten or something so I know where to begin. Some of my favorites are Go My Way, Kami Summer, Change, It's Show, Omoide wa Arigatou, Metome ga Au Shunkan and Relations.

    Yeah, that opening had a lot of energy, I liked it. I actually like the ending even better. Although it's far from perfect, I dig the show too.

    That guy is pretty funny, I used to watch his reviews, and still do now and again.

    Hope you got out of your midterms alive and with something to show for it. Except for bitingly cold weather, I can't complain too much. I've been low on energy lately and sort of not been watching anime at all, though. (Still haven't started Nisemonogatari, sigh.)
