I grew up on Dragonball Z. I mostly enjoy person-in-a-strange-world, post-apocalyptic, adventure, martial arts, survival, fantasy, medieval, melancholy, slice of life, romance and shoujo genres. A solid story is more important than graphics for me, and subs over dubs any day! I love anime soundtracks and have spent many hours listening to anime OSTs on Animenfo Radio -> animenfo.com/radio.

Roadtrips!  Awesome. Where did you go?  I dunno what SCA events are but that sounds like fun too.  I'd love to come see the new website.  I'm glad its doing well.  Infact I've been trying my go at making a website myself. (For all my kite making)  But sadly I kinda burned out after the Home page. lol

I watched a few new shows this summer.  But mostly was doing some rewatchs like Full Metal Alchemist.  I've been trying to get my little sister into Anime, so I started there.

Lets see I watched: Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora, Cowbot Beebop, Samurai Champloo, and some Memories Off. Oh and me and my bro watch Chrono Crusade.

Mostly this summer I was kept busing at work.  I got to do some pretty neat (and expensive 0.0) projects.  But I wont bore with the details.  My family went to the Outer Banks, NC for the 4th of July week and it was a blast (no pun intended)

Hows archery coming?  Are you still showing up all those combound bow wussies?

p.s. I need to watch Death Note.

Hello Again,

Long time no write.

So hows everything going?  Is the jewelry making business booming?

I'll definitely check out Memories once I've recovered and probably deeply considered all the ramifications of Higurashi. I am fairly certainly Higurashi barring an awful ending is going to get a five star rating and upset my list yet again.

Higurashi spoilers

My head is spinning but I've grown used to to after watching so much Higurashi lately. My friend and I are both hooked--we've managed to watch all of the first season and about half of the second in three days time, with a five day break during the week. It's innovative to show different potential story arcs...and then try to avoid some of them. I am impressed how the same basic scenes can be shown again and again but be interesting and new each time. Between the first and second season the transition was rough (though I am pretty sure it was intentionally helpng the viewer to understand what was going on after a long break), but so far it is all pulling itself together well. This last story arc is really intriguing because it seems too early for an ending arc, so my friend is predicting something is going to go wrong.

Rika is by far my favorite character and I was I could say it was completely rational. Something about the first opening with the mask...I live the symbolism there. Hiding your "face", you very nature, the aura of mystery. (Gosh, I just realized dumbly that Hakuoro also was a masked character). One of my friends pointed out, sometimes people of the same type of hair color, have the same type of personality. I was thinking about it, and that's probably true...blue is restrain, control, calmness, serene, introspective...that's what it tends to symbolism and many shows have characters that follow that pattern. Plus, she has her own word (much like the female leads from Air and CCS), and desu on top of that. The advent of a famliar as well...almost too cool.

Higurashi spoilers 

In a strange turn of events, I ended up watching the first 13 episodes of Higurashi yesterday.  It has some interesting symbolism and a strong (if confusing) plot.  (I was thinking about how Sakato sacirificed her friend in the flashback for her own crime, then how she ended up sacirficed one the shrine altar.)  It seems like each character is getting her own story arc.  Thus far I really like Rika, simply because she's the only one that hasn't gone crazy evil and tried to kill the main character.  The scene after he thinks he kills the uncle was very unsettling, because he thinks he's been accepted into the fold...but I'll probably try to tear apart the entire series when I finish it (might be some time, was watching it with a friend that I tend to only see on weekends).
