Hah. Yes I have a massive watching list. That's why I enabled the start dates for my list. Some of those shows I started a long time ago.

I need to just get around to finishing stuff. Hopefully my memory is good enough.

Also you should check out my Mid Season Winter 2016 survey, I have a link in my Bio.

Hi there! Yeah I found you from the reddit thread.

Interesting thing about the Holo favourite, that was my first favourite like a year ago. Recently I added Satoshi Kon and my top 5 shows. Eventually I'm going to think about the characters and choose another 4.

I actually only rated Spice and Wolf an 8 but I enjoyed the concepts and other people would rate it higher. A new light novel was actually recently announced so maybe that means Spice and Wolf 3.

From your list, I think you might enjoy Baccano.

AbstractCalamity,

I was seeking information on how MAL differentiated between hentai and ecchi and one of the Google results was a thread entitled "Anime and the general people views." Saw your insight and looked at your profile. ^,^'

One of your blog posts caught my eye because it was made on my birthday this year. Haha! That frustration reminded of when my RioVolt mp3 cd player (bought in 2001) conked, the company had already gone out of business. My uncle was questioning why I didn't go for the flash memory types (which became more prevalent later), but back then the capacities of those were only around 64 meg to 256 meg (with the price becoming steeper exponentially). Compared to the 650 meg of a CDR (and the ability to play regular CD music), I thought I had gone for the better deal. Three years later (when my machine had died months earlier), a workmate buys a CD mp3 player that only uses one AA battery for 24 hours of playtime. That was neat! (My intermittent technopilia was showing.) My retired musical digital player could only run for 12 to 16 hours on two AA batteries. >,< My younger sibling gifted me with an ipod shuffle in late 2008. (A 2nd gen, colored blue one.) I've been moderating my usage since the battery lifespan is directly proportional to number of recharges.

On "Parental licensing." There was a tv series before called Dinosaurs (1991-1994). One episode was about taking an examination to renew a marriage license. Although that was a comedy, it was also somewhat reflective. Anyway, I've often wondered why some people think of feasible or impractical solutions to symptoms instead of identifying the root causes. ~,~

Ever heard of Irresponsible Captain Tylor? It's an old anime where the occasional "throwback" was mentioned as being necessary. Hmm, there's also that movie Gattaca (1997).

On the subject of controlled societies, the ongoing anime that I'm following that directly touches on this are Shinsenkai yori and Psycho-Pass. The concept can be stretched to include K, Zetsuen no Tempest, Btooom!, Code:Breaker, and probably a few more (like maybe Robotics;Notes), but those first two are the most prominent.

Ahem. I apologize for my semi-random musings. :)

If I had time, I might have rewatched (or at least skimmed through) the first two seasons of Shakugan no Shana before watching the finale. That was a satisfying enough closure to the series. ^o^

Ah, so you're just not tired...do you have a nap in the afternoons? o.0

Hm. I could almost say the same thing about myself, but I never have difficulty waking up in the morning, I like mornings. xD But I do go to bed late. Either way, your sleep habits don't sound extremely healthy...
How are you despite sleeping issues..?
