    But if she is a optometrist then she must be a scientist in a lab coat.

    Sounds like your dreaming to me. Are you sure your glasses was working properly.

    Hi Last Sinner! It's nice to meet you too. I ended up viewing your profile out of curiosity after I saw your visitor messages on Triple_R's profile and remembering you also post in the ISML thread.

    I love Elfen Lied as it's an anime that has left a lasting impression on me and is the show that made me start watching anime seriously after I saw it back in late 2006. I haven't read the manga though. Nevertheless, I like it for what it is, regardless of the fact that the ending was anime original. Even though I've seen it a few more times since then, I'm thinking of rewatching it again soon just for nostalgia's sake.

    Full Metal Panic! is a special favorite of mine that I always keep in my list of favorites, even if new anime that would raise the bar for shows that I would consider a favorite appear. I saw it before Elfen Lied, and it was what led me on the path to eventually becoming a huge anime fan. Fumoffu is one of the funniest anime I have ever seen. I fervently hope for a sequel to TSR that would adapt the remaining novels and conclude the story of the anime. It's been so long since TSR ended, but better late than never.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly on Endless Eight, it damaged my overall appreciation of the series, even as I was crazy enough back then to watch all of it, just not all at once. I didn't realize until 2010 that Haruhi got a second season back in 2009, because positive hype similar to the one S1 got before was missing (or I just missed it all because I was also busy exploring the Touhou Project's fandom in 2009 ). I wondered why a popular anime like Haruhi could have such an unpopular sequel and I got my answer after I saw E8. I'm sure some people would want to forget seeing something like it, if they didn't drop it at all, that is. I was supposed to indicate on my profile favorites that I liked Haruhi S1 and the movie only, but I guess I forgot to place the (S1 only) back in.

    I see you have a lot of classics in your favorites, and there are also several titles there that I've long been planning to see, like Haibane Renmei, which from what I've read about it, shares conceptual similarities with Angel Beats!, Bamboo Blade, because it was a strong faction back when it was in Saimoe 2008, and Garden of Sinners because of all the praise it's been receiving, among others.

    2010 was so trash man. It had some good movies, but that's it. I can't believe you'd praise such a crappy year for anime. No Tatami Galaxy doesn't save it.

    2003 and 2006 were good years admittedly, but I think 2007 is right there with them. 2002 is average. 98 is rather average. I'd throw in 2004 as a good year.

    Ah yes. Please explain how in the world lovely complex is good. Most annoying characters I've seen in a shoujo in a long time. And my god, they had a trap in it too which I found was portrayed in quite an insulting manner.. Terrible series.

    Bamboo Blade wasn't anything special. Strikers was trash. Worst piece of the franchise by far. Minami-ke was god awful.

    And please, Darker than Black a boring action series? That's absurd.

    Wassssuuup!

    The Japanese test was kind of shell-shocking, lol (I was taking the highest level offered in college, above my level, by taking a skip test, and the expectations were considerably higher). Well, actually I did far better than I should, being I suppose more talented at cramming than motivated, but still -- ouch.

    Anyway, caught up on your blog. (+ will have to catch up on anime over the weekend and finish the Summer series...so much to watch +_+). Got a few impressions on all the reviews --

    1) I said this before, but OMG somebody else actually watched Kamichu/Asatte no Houkou!

    2) I'm not sure I would agree that the little goddess carries the show on her own in Kamichu! I think her pretty friend plays a pretty large role and we get to find out more about her -- especially by proxy through the puppy love arc between the younger siblings. The one character we end up not learning much about would be the megane best friend, who just plays the foil to everyone else. there's also a subtle and realistic element here about the three's friendship: that Yurie and the glasses girl are closer than they are to the pretty one, since they've been together longer. It can be an unpleasant element especially in real life but even in fiction (I remember a scene in the manga Flat that just...burned), but I don't believe Kamichu! made an issue of it. Or, well, I'm just seeing things and reading too much into it. What do you think?

    Speaking of which, the lil' bro was not cold! He was just being an awkward young teenager in love! He's totally adorable! *huggles*

    The love interest (Kenji-kun?) was guilty of all your charges, though.

    3) It's nice to see someone else's opinion on Asatte no Houkou. I think you hit the key point right there: in contrast to most J.C. Staff series, this one took its time limit seriously and created a self-contained story with a satisfying ending. I wonder if you'll have more to say though if you have read the manga itself -- I've said it before and I'll say it again, but I think the anime's decision to go its own way is the best possible thing to happen. A certain rather disturbing scene in the manga marked its start down the something is going wrong here path.

    4) You've been throwing daggers at moe at bit too much, IMO. I know I joked around with the controversy stuff, but moe is such an easy target, man.

    Plus I think Kamichu! is totally moe. No, seriously. Not lolipantsu moe, but moe still in its own way. You telling me the moe fans won't totally dig puffy-cheeked, adorable little Magical Goddess Yurie and that silly little ED? Rather than saying moe lovers keep away you should be saying 'sup and welcome!

    5) On the Kurenai review, what do you think of how the series shift gears towards action some time after the second half?

    Also IMO you didn't deal enough with what I think is a pretty valid criticism of the show: the harem aspect. Shinkurou's kind of a shell of a man (some of the "action" scenes creeped me out by how unaffected he was...and all the bone cracking sound; he was supposed to have some sort of drawback to using that power too -- shortened lifespan? -- but the show never really quite made it clear), so how come he's hot stuff?

    6) Anta Baka!? and no Evangelion hilarity? *hint*

    So is 2011 a bad year of anime? I'm hard pressed to think we've had a better year in recent memory since 2007.

    No no no. What we clearly need to do is have someone text themselves to jump the winner then have the person with the highest SDO finish them off and take the Necklace.

    Let me guess, you dislike it just like you disliked Utena? The visuals are too close to Shinbo land? The plot is too confusing?

    By all means, shoot away. Your criticisms are usually so strange that I'll find it amusing one way or another.
