In the beginning there was the word. And then another word, and another. On the second day, the sentence was born, on the third, the paragraph. By the seventh day there were more words than the stars in the sky.

And I'd still top that if you let me talk your ear off.

Admittedly, his glasses schtick was ominously impressive. But I hated him through and through when I first came across NGE. My feelings have mellowed since (time heals all wounds) and I've not really revisited NGE to see if, to the ironic adult mind, he is perversely redeemable. Well, anyway, I should have figured that someone who professes to have a lot in common with Andou might also have baffling favourite characters. Lol.

Wait, what, you like Gendo Ikari? The worst father ever and probably the most blinkered and callous professional ever characterised? Explain.

Indeed, the third is the three girls. The first arc was okay, the second intriguing but ultimately disappointly, open-ended, but the third was wonderfully composed and seemed to stamp the other arcs' flaws in my overall perception of the series. Indeed, when I rewatched the show several years later, I more appreciated the ability to recognize and relive all the lore that's hidden through those arcs on a first watch - such as the conflict between King Kou and Kourin. Unfortunately, the show stopped being produced because the author simply stopped producing content...truly sad.

Have no fear, Twelve Kingdoms was good for me all the way through, but it never really pushed it's way over the edge into the "spectacular" range until its third arc came to a close. I have faith it'll deliver for a man of sophisticated tastes, such as yourself, as well. Despite being incomplete, the whole series sort of consumated its greatness into an overall package with the way it ended. While I may be one of few who considers it as spectacular as I do, it's nevertheless a most enjoyable watch.

And Vivi, for when you read this again, it's Rakushun. Get it right!

Oh God, don't get me started on that war-that-never-happened. Silly, silly move because there was all this buildup and then she flies off on the back of that big tiger or whatever, and then the next episode it's all over. Have you already got to the point with the black-haired boy who is a special horse creature thingie? Sorry I forgot all the terminology. But that was a stupendously good arc - had a huuuuuge buildup, though. Overall, I can earnestly say I enjoyed Twelve Kingdoms, but it was too flawed for it to be an outstanding piece of art. The difference between that and LOGH is that LOGH is perfectly executed and knows how to deliver a proper climax.
