    On a random note, I finished the last 4 episodes of Kokoro Connect (the DVD only eps)... and holy shit. Definition of forced drama. It was so forced I actually enjoyed it cause I was laughing at it unintentionally.
    Hey, it has arguably the single funniest imouto-based gag ever.


    So I attended Madoka Magica's one night, four theatre stint in Vancouver on the 14th:
    -Our theatre sold out at least 90 minutes prior to showtime, so I'm glad I preordered. My guess is the location my club went to would probably the busiest of the four but it's hard to tell.
    -Two people brought body pillows, neither Madoka related. I suppose the glass half full view is it was only two.
    -Movie was 2 hours, 10 minutes and covered episodes 1-8.

    What I liked:
    -Madoka on the big screen. I got what I came for.
    -Use of surround sound when Madoka is searching for the source of Kyuubey's (telepathic) voice.
    -Minimal cuts: They cut Madoka's deam at the beginning (despite it being referenced later) and Mami's backstory, and I'm wondering if the latter will be merged into Homura's backstory in Part II. Everything else was minor streamlining.
    -Shown with subs, which is not the case at all anime movies I've been too. Aniplex gets it!

    What I didn't like:
    -I recall thinking that there was at least one "lost in translation" moment at a critical moment with the subs, though I can't quite recall what I thought the error was.
    -Pacing: While I'm glad they kept almost everything, it did feel a bit... long-winded? Odd, since the movie itself wasn't that long.
    -The minor changes - ie. Remixes in the soundtrack, etc. None of them were bad, but in many cases the originals feel more "iconic".

    As for the before/after party - food options near the theatre were very limited but the company was great. My girlfriend and many of my anime club buddies were present, I also ran into one of my favourite cosplay models (who sounded like she was losing her voice…) and a Japanese exchange student who liked a lot of the stuff I did (Bakemonogatari, Hanasaku Iroha and Kotoura-san in addition to Madoka).

    I can definatly understand your concerns,I sometimes wonder if I'll get more enjoyement out of watching people rage over the show than the show itself.
    If you're tired of over the top drama,I do have a recommendation:Sengoku Collection episode 18
    No,this isn't a joke,I'm not trying to trick you,I genuinely enjoyed that episode (my sig for the last couple months is from that episode) and it's completely standalone so there's no need to watch any other episodes to understand it.
    The plot might be forced a bit when I stop and think about it but it's the way it's told that makes it memorable.It's extremely restrained,unlike 99% of animes out there and much more like a european arthouse film.
    Worse case scenario I waste half an hour of your time,but I think odds are you'd find it interesting.

    I figured you'd enjoy it!
    Every darn time I hear people ask "Is Hosoda the next Miyazaki?" I go "you've got the wrong ghibli director, if he's a next anything then he's closer to Takahata."
    Though in the end he's just Hosoda anyway.
    Oh and a few animators from PA works did some in between animation for Wolf children, so they had a small part in the making of this film!

    Speaking of PA works, what I meant before was that I actually think RDG looks worse visually than Another and they must be putting in all their effort on Okada's original anime.

    I did it because if you're gonna rip the trailer do it right!
    How could you go on about a bunch of other stuff and not mention that it's got visuals that make Another look like True Tears, that's unacceptable!

    Well just for reference, I got it here. Not gonna use it anymore though.

    Lol, thanks. But I'm still surprised you never commented on my Tari Tari one. I thought you would've loved that one.

    So I found this CG from the EF fandisc:
    And a few others:

    I'm pretty sure the last one is just a troll.

    Also, I kind of regret not having participate in Animesuki Choice this year due to lack of time to watch some of the entries. Because I honestly would have liked to have thrown my support behind Hyouka for a few reasons:
    -bring votes for best show up to 10
    -Edge Oreki closer to male character of the year
