I guess everyone watches anime for different reasons.

The Tatami Galaxy's a complex show and getting too much onto why it's good would spoil it.

I'll try my best to explain it without messing it up: Watashi's a college student who tries to live his college years to the max. Hilarity ensues. Sorry about that but no matter how I think about it, describing the show spoils it's richness. What I can say is that the complexity of it and the interactions make it unique, the art (it is a Yuasa Masaaki, so it's playful) and sound work great. Watashi speaks fast. Must see.

Sounds fair.

On a totally different note, you dropped Soul Eater after 3 eps! I also wanted to do that because it looked like a shonentard anime, but I carried on and turns out it gets better (at least IMO). It's still a shonen but less tarded then the first eps seem.

Still, that makes a 2 because you watched the whole thing. :P

I never really understood how the overall ratings worked for reviews. You gave Bible Black Only Imari Rape:

Story: 1/10
Art: 6/10
Sound: 5/10
Character: 2/10
Enjoyment: 1/10
Overall1/10 lolwut?

Maths say that would make a 3/10 not that I disagree with you giving it a 1/10 but then if you give a certain element (for instance, the animation) a 6/10 thus, it means that certain element on the anime's redeemable.

Just sayin'

My time to return the favour with an extremely late reply of my own. I've been playing host to Churchill's black dog since the start of Michaelmas unfortunately so things have been a bit stressful for me. Having that on top of the workload was one of the reasons for my delay.

I'm glad to hear that you're having a good time in Japan; it does sound rather fun. Haha, it definitely sounds like you to be down at the Japanese equivalent of a pub. We didn't go to any drinking establishments whilst we were in Japan, nor did we drink that much. Henry and I tried some shochu whilst we were in Kyoto; he had a barley one whilst I had a potato one. I can't say I particularly liked it, in fact I couldn't finish it due to nausea. I did try some Kirin beer as well which I liked a lot more, so much so that I even had it over here once. Still, beer is more of an acquired taste to me than cider or wine, though less so than spirits. Daily tests!?!? Man that sounds pretty tough, though it'd probably be pretty effective as I only have the one test at the end of the year! Haha, forgetting English eh? I suppose, if you're not using it much, that's quite natural, but try not to forget it all (that said I forgot all my Chinese)! And onto the topic of the attractiveness of females in Japan, I can't say I agree with your assessment that hot girls are everywhere. It's probably because I don't find Asian girls particularly attractive in general (or 3D girls for that matter). I do remember being wowed by a girl whilst at Fushimi Inari-taisha which is pretty unusual for me. However, the fact that I was exhausted from climbing up halfway coupled with only four hours of sleep the previous night and constipation may have influenced my oxygen deprived brain. That, or she was a fox deity. In a comically anime-like situation, I also had a nosebleed shortly after seeing her, though the boring explanation is just my exhaustion. However, James did express the opinion that the females in Japan were a lot more attractive than back in England, so it's probably just me.

In late reply to your comment about the weather, it's damn freezing now, especially in London. Whilst I was in Cambridge, I heard it got pretty bad in London with trains and shit being cancelled. It's less extreme now in London, but every time I walk outside, it's like being on a fricking ice rink; the pavements are still icy and I feel like I'm about to slip at every step. What's it like in Kobe now?

Japan was great; definitely an experience of a lifetime. As for what I got up to, I'll save that as motivation for posting on my blog. However, James has already made some headway in his write up if you're interested.

My K-ON! induced grief has now subsided, thankfully. Still waiting eagerly for the movie of course. I'm with you in thinking that NC Paris Chapter doesn't match up to the first season. I'm not entirely sure why I think this is so. Perhaps, it's because in the first season, it was about both Chiaki and Nodame having to overcome challenges to reach their dreams, and in the second, they still have challenges, but things seem to be going alright for them. I think it's picking up again when Chiaki becomes the conductor of that shambolic orchestra though I feel that Nodame's story is becoming more disjointed. Yes, I found Chiaki to be pretty funny right off the bat, though Nodame was equally hilarious for different reasons. I don't think I could pick a favourite character, but it is, of course, the Chiaki Nodame duo which keeps me watching.

In terms of music, I've been listening to more Beethoven, Chopin and Mozart with a focus on music featuring pianos. I'm afraid I can't really recommend anything as when I listen to classical music, I tend to just leave it on in the background when I'm coding or doing supervision work. My favourite of Beethoven's symphonies is his 9th though, particularly the last movement; "An die Freude" always gets my heart stirring. I also quite like Chopin's Nocturne's as they are really non intrusive as well as Mozart's piano sonatas. Quite frankly, I've barely made a scratch on the whole library of music these composers have made during their lives so my knowledge is very limited at best. Who have you been listening to in terms of classical music? Also, As I Lay Dying became a very integral part of my daily music over the past few months, so I must thank you again for introducing me to them! As of late, I've been getting slightly bored of them, so I'm looking around metalcore a little more; I've tried some Caliban who seem to be to my liking. Now that I've gotten used to less clean vocals, I think I can move on to some even heavier stuff though.

The best show that I'm watching this season has to be Milky Holmes. I've hit a low point with anime watching again and Milky Holmes is the only show which interests me enough to actually want to watch it. I guess it's just the absurdity and retardedness of the girls which makes it so unpredictable. Ika-Musume is fairly cute but not great and Kuragehime had a great start but fell into a pretty predictable storyline. As for Bakuman!, I heard it's premise and was initially ambivalent. Then Mark said that he watched it and didn't particularly like it which just reinforced my feelings. However, since you like it so much, I'll give it a go once I start watching anime again. In the meantime I'm readdicted to House and old British sitcoms.

Things are a little hectic for me since I did so little work in university, I'm going to have to really bust my chops making it up now. Also worrying about what I actually want to do next year. Oh well, I'm doing what I do best, and that's procrastinating and putting things off.

Thank you very much! Sorry, I haven't replied in ages, I'm gonna have to postpone that for a while yet, but hopefully we can talk over the holidays.
B614BAAD8E7A6E10 Nov 5, 2010 1:15 AM
Woah! Epic reply! Good to hear from you and glad you're doing well. Drafting a reply now.
B614BAAD8E7A6E10 Sep 22, 2010 10:52 AM
Hey there, how's it going? How's Japan? I'm guessing you're pretty busy and that these must be some pretty exciting times. Though we did have great fun in Japan, my most poignant memory is that of being drenched in sweat the whole time! I'm just really not made to withstand heat.
Anyway, after getting back, I marathoned K-ON! again because episode 24 of K-ON!! pushed me again onto the verge of tears. After that though, I was really left high and dry (and depressed), so I thought I'd give Nodame Cantabile a go. And wow, it is amazing so far! It's hard to categorise so far, kinda comedic with some serious drama undertones, but luckily they never take over completely (as of yet). Nodame herself is proving far more cute than I would have ever suspected though, especially her strange exclamation. Seki Tomozaku's Chiaki is also delightfully arrogant, but his role as Sagara Sousuke from FMP keeps coming to mind. However, the most amazing thing about this series is that, like with you, it's making me come to appreciate classical music more. I have a real urge now to try and pick up the piano again, though it'd have to be from scratch, as my past keeps coming back to haunt me. I really do hope this isn't just a fleeting feeling, though I'd have to get something half decent to play on before I can get serious.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that Nodame Cantabile has left a very good impression on me so far. My only worry is that I'll go nuts and complete it all before I start uni.
Oh, and I've started a blog, not sure how often I'll update it yet, nor what I'll actually write in it, but we'll see.

That is defo awesome news about Finale, I'm guessing you'll finish it before you leave? Anyways I've already said this on Facebook and msn, but much love man, have a blast and email me soon!
B614BAAD8E7A6E10 Jul 28, 2010 1:48 PM
Ah, pretty interesting, mine's definitely Poisson-esque.
BananaFish Jul 27, 2010 9:29 PM
Meito Anisawa is AWSUM! Same voice actor as Chiaki too, don't ya know. That is all.

I mean a number of years that is equal to Graham's number.
B614BAAD8E7A6E10 Jun 2, 2010 11:26 AM
Awesome, it's definitely going to be must watch after Honey and Clover (which I definitely will be watching within Graham's number years).
B614BAAD8E7A6E10 May 25, 2010 4:51 AM
She's not real Dave! Get a hold of yourself! I don't want to lose another friend to the horrors of anime!
Railgun does look and sound fun to watch, thought I hear there is still something of a plot which puts me off.

OH GOD! I just made the terrible mistake of watching Ping Pong Club episode 11 whilst eating lunch. It was disturbing enough with the old women, but then when that granny just takes out her tits and starts messing around with them... I nearly threw up.
