Not exactly. I forced myself to watch that damn toothbrush scene in Nise and that controversial 10th episode of Bake. It's not my kind of show at all. The only progression it made for me was it went from my most despised title to 5th most despised.
Well since you don't like PMs, here's a rundown of the one I sent about 12 hours ago that you probably didn't bother to read.
Le Chevalier d'Eon is epic and a true, well-written tragedy. Fate/Zero is child's play.
Bastion is the best indie game ever and also a good tragedy.
He repeatedly rants about abyssal endings at the end of each novel. He's also said it in various interviews.
I don't hate the series. I just don't find much to like about it. But Nasu says it's canon and this is Nasu's yard, so if he says it's canon, so be it. Guess I'm in the minority on this and a bunch of other recent titles, as usual.
But I'm fine. A few hours into Bastion after getting it for $3.50 at the Steam Summer Sale and I'm well over F/Z and those in my neck of the woods who hound me over F/Z.
