Haha yeah. I can't believe he's still got that up there to be honest, it's been what? About 5 years since we had the heated argument that caused him to quote me in his sig. It's kinda flattering in a way.As my month late reply might suggest, I too haven't visited the site that often. I occasionally drop on to update my list, more out of habit than anything else. My anime viewing has tailed off somewhat in the last year or so, save for the occasional week-long binge. Instead I spend my evenings browsing Reddit and Tumblr for far too many hours, wondering where the time went and lamenting the fact that I have to be up for work in less than 3 hours :PHow've you been keeping?

Hi VivisQueen,

Thanks for the recommendation, I heard about Tutu before but never intended to watch it yet. I'm gonna tackle it soon and tell you about my impression. I also took a quick glance through your "watched" list. Hopefully I can come up with a counter recommendation one day :D

I'm going to sit down with some friends tonight and watch the third part of the new Berserk triology. How did you like the new movies so far?

Hello VivisQueen,

Interesting question. I remember your comment, it was my first profile comment after all ^^ Over the course of the past two years I came to like the magical girl genre I initially despised. CCP sure played a part in it. Nowadays I give magical girl shows a chance which would have landed straight on my "won't watch" list in the past.

While it took me a long time to get into the show (~30 episodes) I'm glad i kept going. I just love most of the characters at this point as well as their development, also the designs and the costumes are great. Madhouse animation and music also convince, only plot wise I still think this show is a bit thin, which is why I just can't marathon this show and keep it on hold continuously.

At episode 46 I'm currently at a turning point though, all the cards are collected and I honestly have no idea where it's going from here on. While I was so looking forward to more plot, action and excitement I'm a bit afraid it might ruin the show for me now because at this point I'm content with episodic moe fluff and love it for it.

Just started FtNW (I have no impulse control). Soooo good, though I'm not seeing the Erin connection. Granted, I only vaguely remember Erin. The episodes end at the weirdest times, though.

Leafie is pretty easy to find if you search for torrents (it's also on bakabt if you use that site). I watched Kono Danshi here, there's probably a better quality version floating around somewhere, but I had no luck finding it.

Oh yay, both of those sound really neat. Especially the Empire trilogy- I always have trouble finding adult fiction with good female leads. I'm not sure if I'm just exceptionally bad at hearing about/locating them, or they simply don't exist. I get the feeling that a lot of female fantasy writers that want to write about women go into young adult or middle grade writing instead- both sections have oodles of awesome female leads, but the stories tend to be a bit too simplified and/or contain too much angsty romance for me.

Re: Daenerys- apparently the internet claims she's supposed to be 16, but this is never said in-show, and the actress doesn't pass as a teenager at all, so I'm going to continue pretending she's 20. Whatevs. (Also Martin's reasoning for making her 12 in the first place was because "that's what it really was like back then", which is such a shit excuse in a book about dragons and magic zombies. tch).
