Oh yeah, I was definitely saying to myself, "where is this show going?" for a long while. It didn't seem to be doing horror well, and it didn't seem to be doing science fiction well, either. What exactly do you mean by "plain jane mary sue"? I've heard the term before, but don't have an exact idea what you mean, although I get the idea you more than less mean "perfectly boring". I did say in my "review" to mayosamurai that I thought things were fully fleshed out, and I do, but that said, I more than less agree that the characters were not all that interesting. They aren't the worst characters I've ever seen, though, either, by a long stretch. I do acknowledge that the work that was done in shinsekai yori was quality. It really was. I like A-1 in general and think they do a good job with putting lush detail in. But it wasn't the level of quality of the art style, so much as it was the art style they chose itself that I didn't like. They were definitely also going for a dystopian feel, as well, although it didn't really come to fruition until later on. Wandering Son? Ok I think I'll check it out soon. Right now, I'm trying to decide if I want to watch Nana, Dennou Coil, or Princess Kiss next. Any thoughts? And I know you're busy, so take your time with responding about knk! :D I'm excited as ever to hear about it from you, and hope you'll have a lot of thoughts to bring to the table. :)
FYI I just posted a summary of my thoughts about shinsekai yori on mayosamurai's page a minute ago, in case you have interest in reading it.
Also, I finally finished Shinsekai Yori.
Oh no problem! I was just wondering what you were up to, since I hadn't heard from you in a while.
