Oh, and do you know when attack on titan ends its' original run? I don't want to start on it until all the episodes are out. I *hate* waiting; I will not watch ongoing series as a rule.

As to Wolf Children, it's a bit corny, but at the same time, it's got that down to earth quality that a good slice of life has, without being boring. I'm just a bit ambivalent about it at the moment because I didn't have much of an emotional reaction to it; I feel like I've seen it before somewhere, in a way. At the same time, I can't really think of anything particularly wrong about it; the characters were interesting, the artwork was very nice, and it had a somewhat interesting ending. I dunno, maybe I"m just jaded. It holds a *very* high rating on ap.com, top ten if I remember correctly, and not without a reason. I'd just like your opinion so that I can decide if I really am jaded, or if there is something missing that I just can't pinpoint. One way or the other, it is a very good watch. I'd give it nothing less than 4/5.

Oh that is very unfortunate. :( I *hate* when that shit happens. Which is why, if my comment gets to be a certain length, I tend to copy it, just in case I accidentally delete it. Speaking of which, there is a back button on the comment box, in case you just need to go back one step, although completely shutting down the tab is another matter. :(  Terribly graphic, you say? That's surprising to me, first of all because you never mentioned any problems with KnK, which is also considered by many to be very graphic (although, imo, in a classy way), and secondly because attack on titan is listed as a shounen. Then again, I guess that refers more to the maturity level of the material, eh? Deadman Wonderland is graphic, and yet has a really stupid plot and characters; it's fittingly labeled as shounen despite its graphic content. It's a horrible story anyways. xD And yup, for sure I'll forward your email address the next time he responds to me.

Have you heard anything about Attack on Titan? I keep hearing that it is pretty awesome, and it has a ridiculously high rating on ap.com, with a lot of views. Then again, the last time I saw something like that, steins;gate, I was extremely disappointed. I was thinking, maybe the three of us could simultaneously watch it when it is completed, and compare thoughts! That might still be a month or two in the future, but what do you think about that?

This has to be my favorite part of guilty crown. What was it that was wrong about guilty crown, again, anyways? Oh yeah, the ending, among other things. gah...could have been so much better.
