    I've ran into that explanation before. However I do get a whiff of funny business in it anyway. Either it's just a convenient excuse to sell people another set of lenses, or an admission that they've been using sub-par AF-parts all along. Not sure which one is better.

    In DSLRs it's somewhat more understandable that CDAF hasn't been the quickest. Not until video recording became a major part of DSLRs it was just a gimmick and as a result the manufacturers never put all that much effort into its implementation. However CDAF in some new Canons is actually quicker even with lenses made in the 90's than any adapted 4/3 lens I've tried which is something that I find a bit odd.

    The characters morph a bit as I tinker with them but basically they've been pretty stable for a few months.

    The blonde (Kpau) is obviously a "Mugi riff" -- looks like a "good girl" (white/pink) with a 'bright eyed innocence motif but is "most likely to throw herself into the mosh pit".

    The goth loli vamp (Tsika) is sort of my "long running perfect pixie" model ... I tend to make one of her in whatever game I'm playing (mmo, rpg, etc). Sometimes her hair is white, sometimes black. Sharp-witted but kind of amazed anyone finds her attractive since Kpau and Sashiko get most of the fan attention.

    The trance girl (Glycerin) is new for me... I was dinkering with the creator module and she just kind of popped out with those purple eyes peering out from under the shaggy hair and goofy smile. I was just toying with the idea of another opposite for the loli vamp. The blonde and the loli make pretty dramatic light/dark contrasts on stage. Glycerin is goofy, awkward, and shy.

    The drunken Irish girl (Sashiko, I should probably rename her) has been a number of things... Rock Band doesn't do a great job with asian looks (skin shades, eye choices, etc) which was her first incarnation.

    The male (Blargh Umlaut) is my oldest RB character... its really just *me* in cartoon avatar form. I didn't come up with the idea for the origins of the band initially (how they met and grouped), it just kind of evolved to explain why they were playing together.

    Its kind of interesting - these must be primal archetypes for me because every mmo/rpg I ever play has some variation on them. Tsika is an arasai (dark faerie) warlock in EQ2, she's a destruction mage waif in Skyrim, etc etc. Similar stories for the rest.

    You're probably right. Although regarding plot, I didn't really think that Bakemonogatari had too much of one, either... although it was still enjoyable in its own way.

    You might find my recent image album amusing -- it popped into being as a result of the "design your own anime character?" thread. Since I can't draw worth a crap, I used my Rockband avatars as the basis for characters and storyline.

    On another topic, I present you with two hilarious pics . I added them to the Mari Okada club thread.

    Question? Are you following Another by any chance? To me and as the general consensus I think (excluding the Monogatari fanboys lol) I think it's the best of the season. Unfortunately "mystery/horror" is not a popular genre in modern anime so it's been bombing in Japan.

    And oh good luck with uni.

    I understand. From my own time in College/University, I know that it can be hard to balance that with a lot of online activity (particularly through message boards).

    Hope everything goes well for you.

    After trying the January season, I can understand why Aquarion EVOL, Ano Natsu, Pirates, Rinne and DxD have pulled in decent numbers. However, that doesn't mean they do anything for me. *shrug*

    Amagami SS Plus has been an improvement on the original series for me. Rihoko's two episodes were deliciously sweet. Definitely one of the best childhood friends succeeding scenarios I've seen. Ai's episodes made Junichi show some unexpected growth. Seeing him man up and get serious so he could be worthy of Ai was rather gripping. Kaoru's episodes were just hilarious and damn hot. Best lap joke scene I've seen in a long time.

    Thermae Romae is the one truly funny comedy for me this season.

    Responded to you over there, but I'll say this...

    The discussion on AS here was certainly very much worthless. A lot of skewing of people's opinions and words, like so many people seem to be obsessed with the idea that people are like angry over simple fanservice. You probably did yourself some good by not participating lol.
