Well, at least you're not busy enough to not be able to watch any animu at all... That would be horrible, and will be when you get to the boxes, but I'm sure you'll manage somehow :P

My problem with Madoka was that the characters couldn't really get me to empathise with them. So when the infamous episode 3 rolled around, my reaction was something along the lines of "Ohh, neat..." ...Well, I did warm up to Homura eventually, so that made up for some of it... I actually enjoyed it slightly more the second time around when I watched it with my sister. All those hours playing Grief Syndrome might have had something to do with it... Check it out sometime if you haven't already. It's really great for a doujin game. Fairly short, but great fun nonetheless...

If you're looking for more of a mindfuck, I'd recommed giving Saya no Uta a try sometime. It came to mind since Saya's author wrote the scenario for Madoka as well... That and I've been trying to get a certain someone to read it for a while now. He'd rather sit through ecchi titles he doesn't enjoy, like Seikon no Qwaser, than give visual novels a try, even though getting all the routes in Saya would take an equal amount, or less, to the time he invested in SnQ. He's probably watching the second season right now, bastard... If you can get past a few H scenes, and don't have a great aversion towards VNs like a certain someone, it's actually a great read, imho. It's basically about a young medical student who is heavily injured in a traffic accident, in which he looses his parents. He undergoes brain surgery to save his life, but when he comes to he finds his senses are warped, causing him perceive the world as covered in guts, blood, and pulsating organs... Fun times ensue...

As for manga being more fun than anime... I think it's kind of like how books are always better than movies, or something along those lines. But it's not like there aren't incredibly disappointing manga titles out there as well... I've actually been in more of a mood for anime lately, though that mood might have shifted now with the last volume of Punpun. Ah, did you know Homunculus ended not too long ago? If there's one thing the last volume will do, is fuck with your mind. In a good way of course...

And I've basically written a huge wall of text recommending various stuff. That'll teach you to send me messages...

Hey you, long time no see!  I'm doing fine, thank you, and you too I hope. I'm assuming your thoughts drifted towards Hoshimaru because of Kyubey, right? But, really, shouldn't you be reminded more of Bokurano's Koyemshi? Though, I guess Kyubey is more cute and cuddly like Hoshimaru... Well, in any case, they're all mascots for their shows, so it all works out...

As for my profile image, it's a panel from Oyasumi Punpun by Asano Inio. It's funny you should ask this because a new volume just came out today. I must way that's some great timing on your part.

Hey KiraRin,

long time no message. It has been more than a year now since we wrote something to each other :P So i think it's perfect time to write to You and see how the last year was? I hope good.

Today was great weather, so i was able to enjoy it for a while. How's the weather in there?

Hope You had wonderful year :) And hope You didn't forget me :P

Cheers!

It's definitely sad to see that you're retired from the site, but I'll be sure to check your blog sometime. Your reviews are not just genuinely hilarious, but always point me in the right direction when I want some gleefully shameless guilty pleasure to spice up my typically somber anime crop. So, thank you!

Also, what would you say your favorite ecchi/comedy series is? I'm planning to watch Shuffle! after I finish up Steins;Gate, but I'm always looking for recommendations. Cheers!
