    Well... I actually find it interesting that so far, she's been all about her hatefulness, spite and bullying. I haven't seen a character like that since Naru Taru, (and certain older, serious shojo manga) and while the girl there was utterly unlikeable to the end, her characterisation was some well enough to make her believable, rather than just a stereotypical bully. In a way, even though there was nothing really redeeming about her, apart from being human, it made for a possibly more interesting personality than if they would have excused her behaviour by making her sympathetic. I wouldn't mind, if the reason they give us for Akira being that way is because she's simply a selfish, hateful, bitter or insecure person, as long as it's fleshed out well. I do like awful but redeemable characters too though, so I'm good either way.
    (I mean like in the sense that they are really interesting, not that I like how they are bad people xD)

    Interestingly, The Pilot's Love Song was already on my "to watch" list, according to MyAnimeList. I don't remember how I came across it, but the fact that you're recommending it means that I'll up its priority.

    I'm glad you're following so many of the series that I am! I've been wanting to talk about some of them.

    Captain Earth is a show that I started watching because people were raving about its "production value." It's a Bones series, and even though it seems that people think Bones has gone downhill, I still associate them with Eureka Seven, which I really liked. That said, the synopsis alone wouldn't have drawn me in, and I feel a bit underwhelmed at the moment. I like the settings and the artwork, and I felt that the first episode was absolutely epic, but I'm a bit confused about what's going on. Maybe I missed some key details, but it seems to me that there are two arms of the same corporation that are fighting with each other, and there's a third corporation that is working toward destroying the planet (to put it in overly simplistic terms). I keep watching because I figure that the punchline hasn't been delivered yet, but this is probably the first anime series that I've seen where the enemy was so convoluted... it just seems like, what's the point?

    Mahouka might be my favorite series of the season. I love the artwork and the characters. People seem to have a problem with Miyuki's affections toward Tatsuya, but I figure that there's something to it, like they're not really brother and sister. That, or perhaps WIXOSS just desensitized me. I like that Tatsuya is cool and composed, and that he has amazing abilities despite being inept at the abilities everyone else displays. I feel that the current arc of going after Blanche is slightly boring, as I'd really like to see the series open up to a larger world-wide scale. Perhaps this is just a segment to get us there.

    Brynhildr takes something out of me each time I watch it. People say that the people (or some key person) behind Elfenlied are also behind Brynhildr, and I could believe it. There are a number of similarities. The situation that the characters are in feels fairly hopeless: they always seem overpowered; they're working against a clock (the requirement for daily pills); and their opponents have much more knowledge and resources than they do. In that manner, it generates a feeling opposite of what I get from Mahouka. I only have faith that most of the characters will survive because there are 13 episodes and we're not at 13 yet. I foresee tragic things happening to most, if not all, of the characters by the end. But who knows? Perhaps the introduction of this new mad scientist ally will turn things around.

    You didn't ask for it (and I won't discuss anything specific, since you're backlogged on it), but I also wanted to mention that Sidonia has been pretty amazing. I watched the trailer and figured that it might be a fairly droll series, but picked it up based on the synopsis. The CG animation is disappointing in some parts (the walk cycles in particular seem really choppy), but otherwise really contributes to the atmosphere of the series. I just hope that they can accomplish what they want in the limited number of episodes that they have.

    Even though I don't get notifications for visitor messages, I'll log in again tomorrow to read your thoughts on the series. If you want to discuss any specifics about the series I'd be happy to do so, too!

    I laughed. I'm still laughing as I type. It's official, we have very odd humour! (it's applicable in all kinds of ways too, because I'm really caffeinated with all the consequences at the moment)
    The skull just had to go, it was really obstructing me in my thought processes

    Checked out Wixoss btw, I quite like it so far. Feels a bit like Madoka light, but it's unique enough to not make that seem like a bad thing. I'm really liking the more realistic, believable spin on the incest theme, although I'm sad Akira is so plain unlikeable. She looked so appealing in the promo art. But then again, it is a nice spin that sets it apart from the above mentioned similar show. I bet people expected an older sister type out of her. And I'm curious if there's more to her...

    I like WIXOSS quite a bit. It was the first of the currently-airing series that I picked up and I admit that I didn't have high expectations of it, but it might be my favorite of what I'm following. The darker aspects of the series seemingly came out of nowhere, and I'm still intrigued by what the secret behind WIXOSS is. The characters are enjoyable enough to watch. There's an interesting commentary to be made about people in general from it. It's not the case with Hitomi, but with Aki and Yuzuki it seems as if they are losing what little they actually have of their wish even as they struggle in WIXOSS to attain it. People lose things when they become obsessive.

    The other series I'm watching are Black Bullet, Knights of Sidonia, Mahouka, Captain Earth, One Week Friends, Escha and Logy, Brynhildr in the Darkness, and Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii. I could drop a few of those and not mind... are you following any of them?

    I like the fantasy genre quite a bit. I have a harder time stating whether or not I like romance. I like a good love story, but so many "romance" anime series are either harem-based romantic comedies or "dating route"-adapted series. I can still appreciate them, but when they're the primary focus of the series then I find myself getting bored. An example of that is Outbreak Company, if you've seen it. It had fantasy elements and brought up some interesting ethical and philosophical issues, but it also had "dating route"-style elements. I liked it all in the beginning, but it began to feel as if the series was focusing on the "dating route" aspects more than the fantasy storyline. I felt let down by the end of it.

    Speaking of weather, we didn't really have a spring here. Just last week it was still getting pretty cold, but yesterday the temperature went over 90˚F. We're already experiencing evening thunderstorms, which is more typical of summer. I guess we just dove from winter to summer.

    I told you that you could always message and/or email me to bring me back And I certainly wouldn't mind it if you did - I've been wondering how you've been. I've also been wondering if you've been watching any of the current shows. I actually started watching nine actively-airing series - I don't think I've followed that many active series since high school. Specifically, I was wondering if you were watching selector infected WIXOSS, which some have been hailing as "the next Madoka." I wouldn't go so far as to label it that, as it isn't quite as profound (yet, anyway), but that made me wonder if you were following along, too.

    PM or email whenever you have the time, I'd love to hear how you're doing!

    I wonder how the heck we got back to the school system discussion in the Mahouka thread. Seems like there is even more disagreement than I thought, though a part of it seems to stem from people who are plain and simply dissatisfied with the way the author wrote the first arc of the story and the world building. Well, I'm tired of going on and on about that so I'm out of that loop.

    I think that highlighting your actual concerns there was a good call... the discussion really did need some refocusing IMO.

    Gochuumen wa Usagi Desu Ka? is a wonderful show. At least if you're into the moe-moe slice of life comedu schtick it's aiming for.
