    Still sorry. My opinion on Fate herself still hasn't changed, but I didn't mean to make such a huge debate out of the whole issue.

    I'm sorry about that whole debate in the Manga thread. I didn't mean to take it as far as I did.

    Well, So-Ra-No-Wo-To is putting them in the army. I doubt it's going to be sunshine. The last 30 seconds of that clip were pretty sombre. I imagine it will be somewhat uplifting and somewhat heartbreaking. I personally think the title comes from the beats/notes of the stick intrsument in the music playing in that clip.

    Well, Eden of the East movies are in the mix too, so yes, there are movies appearing. Wondering what exactly they're doing with the Nanoha one though. Is there really going to be that much new material? The amount of rehash studios like Gainax do makes me permanently wary of remakes.

    I personally felt there was better fleshing out of characters in the As series. There was so much focus on Nanoha in the first series, yet Fate pretty much steals the show despite that. In As, there's a balance. But it is kind of evident already that Fate is more combat/justice oriented than Nanoha, who seems more of a mentor role than the person delivering the justice. Hayate's appeal for me was that in the midst of people getting knocked down and gradually getting up again, Hayate never allowed herself to be knocked down despite her physical limitations and her tragic surroundings. She just kept on going and stayed positive. So Hayate is a character immediately worthy of empathy, which is probably one of the major reasons As is the more popular one of the three - it is able to make the viewer care aboutt he girls but for different reasons.

    Now I need to find something else to watch. Hmm, maybe StrikerS. Or Daughter of Twenty Faces, I didn't finish that due to falling ill when it screened at the local club.

    Yeah, dreams are actually another magical girl cliche. Except this time the people inside weren't suckers. They knew the truth and reasoned their way out.

    It's about five girls in war-torn Spain who join the army and also play music in the skies above a deserted fortress-like city. Director of Elfen Lied, one of the Code Geass screenwrites, animator of Birdy the Mighty Decode, character designer of Kannagi and composer of the Bounen no Xamdou and Fullmetal Alchemist soundtracks - that's the main staff. I have high hopes for this.

    Finished watching Nanoha As. And I now see what you mean - the episode with the dream sequence - that was a good one. I think Fate was one of two aspects that made As better than the 1st series. Hayate was the other one. Girl who never gave up and was able to achieve what everyone thought was impossible. She ahd a lot of heart, guts and compassion. Seeing her cry in the last episode hurt. However, seeing everyone 6 years later was nice and a good ending imo. Although Lindy still seems to be immune to ageing. XD And those one-liners from those staves....damn, they're so hilarious because they're so silly. ^^

    I watched the trailer when you posted it in the ISML thread. At least I think that was you who posted it. Looks interesting, though the the trailer was a real tease so I couldn't gather much from it. I'll be sure to pick it up when it releases, my watch list is usually pretty large. :3

    Preview for a series starting in January 2010 called So-Ra-No-Wo-To. I think you'd like it.

    Yeah, I'm not necessarily against a violent series. Violence for the sake of violence doesn't sit well with me generally, but I'm definitely not naive to think violence and reality don't mix. I just think it's made 'too cool' sometimes. Things like that made me unable to like Bake, Baccano or Black Lagoon. Actually, movies like the Bourne Trilogy, Black Hawk Down, Three Kings, The Big Lebowski and Pineapple Express are my favourites. Because there was a proper story and characters that made me want to care and because the violence was either a chilling thrill or shocking, but never gratuitious.

    What I care about most is characters. I want to be made to have to care about them and be enthralled in their journey. I want a world that is both visceral and beautiful. I want music to touch my soul, a story that surprises me from time to time and has flow and logic to it. Most of all, I like something that challenges me and makes me accept something new/unexpected into my opinions or favourites. Generally I can't watch something half-hearted or easy. I want a series to make me want to remember it for good reasons and to enjoy the 20-odd minutes I give an episode. That's pretty much how I roll.

    So what are you watching currently?

    What I'm into is best described in the 'About Me' section of my profile and this profile and review list.

    Well, I think as Khold once said to me in a PM after I riled a lot of people accidentally, the ISML thread isn't quite the place for serious discussion, unfortunately. Yet trolls like LazyCanuck and Overfunk are tolerated. *shrug* And I don't think you're what your ahters like to call you. I have the same problem with that clown called uis - every time I've asked why something like Saki is popular in J-Saimoe despite weak sales or to properly explain why Bakemonogatari is popular, he goes into 'I'm right, you're wrong' mode and cries like a little baby. Put those three on ignore along with a few others. Ever since I had a two week long argument with Var over Code Geass, particularly about C.C., which got me rep and support and caused him to slander women in general and go into 'I'm right, you're wrong mode' as well as flaming anyone who dared oppose him, whichc caused him to be banned - I decided I'm no longer in the mood to fire back at trolls. Not worth the time.

    In several instances in As, I got the feeling that Fate was suddenly taking the lead in the relationship with Nanoha, as in she was being the protective one. The moment where Nanoha is getting creamed by Vita in episode 2, Fate coming in all tough and giving the 'Don't mess with me' vibe - I suddenly heard Good Charlotte in my head singing 'Keep Your Hands Off My Girl' and I was just loving it. At present, I've only watched up to the point where Hayate is possessed by the Book of Darkness. Need to finish it and move on to StrikerS at some point, although I hear a lot that Strikers wasn't as good as it should have been. Kind of sounds like what happened to Minami-ke after the first series.

    Yeah, October is more of a case of 'what I'm not watching'. I've tried nearly every series and only been able to stick with Kimi ni Todoke. I lost the ability to see something I don't like all the way through after I was stupid enough to watch all of Speed Grapher. Last year, Baccano made me so angry I had to give it up because it evoked such hate and violence in me, it was getting to toxic/dangerous levels. This year, Bakemonogatari did it to me in less than 2 episodes what Baccano took 5 episodes to do. 11eyes - Art showed me the game version. It's actually decent in game form - how they managed to turn it into the over-ecchified, boring crap it is in anime form, I have no idea...Sacred Blacksmith is getting all its popularity with the promise of Cecile nudity and Lisa doing things to her. I'm getting the feeling it's trying to imitate Railgun and the Mikoto-Kuroko relationship somewhat, although I haven;t even touched Railgun and am too scared to.

    Love the :3. Reminds me of Haruka from Minami-ke - *blush*

    I've been fairly let down by 2009 to be honest. Eden of the East wasn't the spectacle I thought it should have been. Canaan was something I thought would be an awesome action series, as did my peers, only for us to be shattered by where it meandered to. Only things I've liked this year are Kimi ni Todoke, Aoi Hana, Spice and Wolf 2 and Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.

    Hey man, just thought I'd see how you're doing after I saw your post with Full Metal Coast.

    I don't have a problem with you getting into a deeper post. I don't see much of it and I like to see someone who is willing to provide a substantial argument rather than yell 'I'm automatically right! Screw anyone who disagrees!' So kudos to you for that, even if it ruffles some people sometimes. Being like that myself, I know how it feels.

    And yes, Fate is definitely awesome. Finally been able to get myself to watch the As series. Seeing a more independent, confident Fate has been a treat. But she definitely hasn't lost any of her appeal.

    You been watching anything from the October season? Aside from Kimi ni Todoke, I've been rather let down by this season.
