    No worries on that end, I always watch a lot more stuff I enjoy the hell out of than I do shows that make me want to pull my hair out. No one's forcing me to sit through bad stuff, after all.

    Scottish culture is cool, I definitely want to visit Scotland at some point. I know a Scottish guy with a huge family, they're always a riot. Spare me the haggis, though.

    For all I know, this is a move they had to make to stat afloat. I simply don't know, and it doesn't much matter to me why. I'm not looking for someone to pin the blame on, I just find the decision regrettable, no matter what the intent of it was.

    I only saw the small bits that were translated in the episode near the end, unless I missed something. Looked incredibly mean-spirited, and to Chihaya of all people too. The person who's probably most troubled already. Stuff like that does happen in real life too, unfortunately, it can be such a bottom-feeder business.

    With bad shows in general? It's more extensive than I'd like to admit, I'm sure.

    Kilts are pretty cool, though. Got to make an exception for those.

    What they said was that would shift their focus to the otaku audience, away from the general audience they've been trying to reach previously. I think they will continue to produce anime originals, so that's something. Hopefully they'll still be somewhat unique. I don't know if they're going to "sell out" completely and begin producing the same moe-style stuff that has already more than saturated the market, or merely try to reach the same target audience through slightly different means. Either way though, it means they probably won't be producing the weird and unique shows that you won't find anywhere else any longer. (E.g. House of Five Leaves, Kuragehime etc.)

    I just saw it a couple of hours ago myself. Poor, precious Chihaya. Next week's episode will be tough, but hopefully it'll have a happy ending to look forward to after all is said and done.

    Trust me, you don't wish you had more experience with them.

    Damn, marvel? I'm feeling good now. Just for you, I'm going to put on pants today as well. Otherwise I totally would have went with a skirt.

    Not according to what I've read. NoitaminA is going to shift their focus from a general market to an otaku market, i.e. they'll start producing the same thing almost everyone else is. Again, nothing wrong with that in and of itself, whether a show appeals to otaku is neither good nor bad for that reason alone, but it will make anime even more insular, which I'm not happy about.

    Yes, quite. I'm sure he would be bodacious, rad and plenty of other related adjectives.

    There's just being a bad show, like let's say the currently airing Maken-ki, and then there's being a bad show with pretenses and aspirations, which Kurokami is. You're a little more disappointed when a college professor robs you than when an unemployed crack-addict does. Kurokami isn't the worst show ever (I only made it halfway, so I rightfully couldn't say), but it was boring on a level I rarely experience, and with plenty of really irking little things as well.

    I hope there's room in there. Hopefully it won't force out something else I know, like putting on a pair of pants, or eating an orange.

    8, huh. That's still a deviation from the noitaminA schedule, which is almost always 11 episodes, 22 for two-cour shows. As much as I'm looking forward to the show, I'm disappointed that noitaminA is going to shift their focus to "otaku-friendly shows", they had something unique going that wasn't being offered anywhere else. At least they're still doing anime-originals, as opposed to adaptations, which comprises the vast majority of anime released these days. (Nothing wrong with adaptations per se, but I don't want *only* that.)

    Okay, okay. What about Magnet-dude? Magno-Man?

    I swear, with the moon and the stars as witnesses, the show's no good!

    Yeah, thanks, I'm getting there, I guess.

    Oh, only 6 episodes? I haven't paid attention to news since the announcement, but isn't it airing on noitaminA? That'd be a first for the time-slot, but I guess they're making a lot of changes nowadays.

    You're on to something. He'd call himself Magnet-man and save the world from corruption. Quick, get it copyrighted before anyone sees this!

    Oh, so you're familiar with it? One of my biggest disappointments ever. Cool character designs, neat core idea, worst and most boring execution ever.

    I'm not incapable of learning, I've just never dabbled in anything like this before, so it's a step by step thing. Feels good learning, though. I loved the voice too, but at that point, I wasn't at the level of fandom where I would typically go and research the individual voice actors, I usually just enjoyed each anime for what it was without digging deeper. I miss that approach sometimes.

    I wonder how they'll tackle the full season. Hopefully they keep the same tone, and don't turn it into something more generic. At the very least, it's sure to please in the visual department regardless. Everything in Out of Sight just oozed childlike joy. In this case, it was supernatural, but the joy of discovery as a child is just like that. Everything could bring great joy, especially when you see it for the first time.

    That would be pretty freaky. But he could probably be of great use for something.

    Looks like I've got another series to avoid now as well.
    You say, while typing the Fight Ippatsu Juuden-chan into a torrent search engine. I've been sort of soured on the whole "wait for it to get better" idea. The one time I tried giving something that was just a complete bore some leniency and sticking with it, I ended up watching 12 episodes of Kurokami, and felt like I had wasted so much time when I finally had to stop.

    Yes! I did notice that. That's actually what prompted me to put an avatar picture for my wordpress account, I saw my link under there and there wasn't a picture. I was going to ask you how to go about fixing that, but somehow, I figured it out. Back when I watched Kanon, I had no real knowledge of voice actresses, it was great to realize that what later became my favorite had voiced one of my favorite from that series too. She'll kill ya if you're allergic to moe. But if you're allergic to moe, maybe it's all for the best that you go sooner rather than later.

    Yes, I quite liked how it was done. I don't know quite what words I'd use to describe it, but I liked the whole atmosphere. Alright, I wasn't really sure how well known he was in other parts of the world. I've seen tons of adaptations of his works, from cartoons to puppet shows. I watched "Out of Sight", that was a very imaginative and charming short. It had some of the duality that Tsumiki no Ie offered as well, with the tragedy of a little girl being blind, but the pleasure of seeing her explore and experience things differently than we might have. Good stuff.

    Some people are built with magnets that just attract danger, I think.

    As for dropping things, I've just got a *pretty* good idea of what I'll enjoy and what I won't after a few episodes usually. If I'm unsure, I err on the side of caution and continue usually. But sometimes there's shows that just do something I despise so much that I can't even made it through the first episode. (Like Fight Ippatsu Juuden-chan, where the humor (and sexual appeal?) of the show comes from the main character getting punched and wetting herself. Hiiiiilarious, right? ~~)

    Alright sweet, thanks. I fixed it up now, it has a featured image. Thanks for making it a segment and stuff, looks real easy to navigate. I read your article on "Uguu" by the way, that's probably the best topic ever. That video clip is so damn funny, it's making me really nostalgic for Kanon.

    Black Rock Shooter I have seen, and I liked it. I dig the aesthetic of the otherworld there, and I'll be looking forward to the full season that I believe is coming out in January. Ah, Disney too, well, that seals the deal. If you're not familiar with H.C. Andersen* by the way, you're probably still familiar with many of his works including the Ugly Duckling and The Little Mermaid. He sure could write fairy tales.

    Damn. Sounds like he's been through a lot, yeah. I once had to pull a small rock out of my knee. That's one of my small scars, I still got a little white patch where it penetrated. Biking accident, hurt a lot, but not as bad as it might sound.

    I think so. You should probably set yourself on fire to make sure it's the correct diagnosis, though.

    I'm very indiscriminate with what I try to pick up also, which might have something to do with it. It's not that often that I drop something at all (unless you count watching the first episode of something in a new season and not bothering with it dropping it.)

    Well, you know, that's..... stop being so contrarian and just get with the program already. Lest we program you to only listen to gangster-rap until the end of your miserable existence.

    Awesome, really glad you decided to watch it and enjoyed it even. It is a very heartfelt portrayal of life itself, it's amazing what you can do with 12 minutes if you put your mind to it. How did that featured image thing work again?

    The snowman I've seen, that used to air on television when I was younger actually. I'll download and check out "Out of Sight." The Little Match Girl I've not seen either, but that's a very famous story, especially around here, written by the Danish author H.C. Anderson. My parents used to read, among other of his works, this story to me as a child.

    He must be a very hardened man. Normal fillings don't really hurt at all. I hate those needles. I normally have no problems with needles, but the ones you get at the dentist are unpleasant. They look like they're straight out of a mad doctor skit; big and filled with green liquid. The way you swell up in the area and the weird tingly sensation you get around your chin feels really awkward. No biggie really, though.

    I consider myself warned.

    Sure, some shows get a while to get started. A show doesn't have to "wow" me immediately, it just has to show some sort of promise, be somewhat interesting. I'm patient in the sense that I can wait for a plot to get started, but I'm not patient for something that I plain don't enjoy to improve.

    Hopefully there would be some sort of super-technology that would allow us to program ourselves or retain our "mind", whatever that may be.
