The Careless Monday happened on November 22, 2010, and we are sometimes past that date by between one and two months. So short answer is 2011.

So quick question, I am a fan of Kenji Kamiyama. But I wouldn't say I am a huge fan. Let me put this another way: I was a big fan of is work on GITS:SAC, but I detested Moribito: Gaurdian of the Spirit. So, I guess I would say that I think he has an interesting style but I don't flock toward all of his works in obsession.

So, before I start watching I would like to know whether or not you think this show is closer to Moribito or his work on SAC? I really would like to give it a shot but if it moves too slow then it may not be the right show for me.

Well, unlike Moribito, it's not set in a fantasy setting. And since it's only 11 episodes long, the pace shouldn't be a problem either. I'd say go for it.

What does this "cathastrophic problem" that Japan has in the story consist of?

Hm. I'm not sure what you are refering on Cats.
Do you mean, what do they need to "save japan" from? Or by cathastrophic problem are you referring on the careless monday and it's circumstances?

So far there doesn't seem to be any real impeding catastrophe. The only thing we are told is that the selešao are supposed to save the country but no one told us from what.

It's been speculated that the selešaos are supposed to solve problems like corruption, decay, economic crisis, crime and many other social problems. So far it looks like the selešao themselves share this kind of idea.

It is not however clear if, should they fail, an even worse tragedy would occur to Japan bringing it to an even darker situation, and nothing seems to point that way although it cannot be completley denied.

The careless monday thing is not really a catastrophe since it didn't cause any casualty and it is regarded more like a shameful past event rather than a future threat.

They used to be out by the time I got home from school Friday (I'm US EST as well) but recently it's been late Friday night, or early Saturday.

Natural assumption from the start that it'll be the climax of it all, especially since they used the prologue tactic at ep 1.
By the way it's going, ep 11 won't cut it to end this, but may possibly turn full circle with the prologue.
We'll find out soon enough

General, I've got to disagree.

There isn't really a specific problem.
Like Saki said in episode 1, it's just a 'bad atmosphere'.

Every selecao has their own opinion of what's broken, and how to fix it.

Spoiler for first few episodes:

Its true that I was thinking about Akira pre-mind wipe.
But as you said everyone has their own perspective on their problem.

After episode9 it looks like there is indeed an impending catastrophe. Not saying more than this, though... spoiler spoiler...

^^I don't think that's always the case. For example, I thought female nudity was tastefully done in Spice & Wolf. I think nudity can be done without any sense of perversion.

IDK, I there is a perception, or perhaps a stereotype, that says most NEETS are males. I don't know the validity of this perception, but it's not hard to imagine a female unemployed, uneducated, and untrained.

In any event, I don't know whether the lack of female NEETS esteems the female gender or ignores the female gender.

No it's because all the male NEETs would be distracted from thinking of ways to defeat the missiles.
