Well, I don’t think corporate machinations and magical battle high school-style duels can ever be as interesting as actual warfare (though it seems like actual warfare is about to begin). But my main problem is with the characters. They’re difficult to like (particularly Miorine) and they’re all so . . . extreme, for lack of a better word. They seem so unrealistic. I just don’t care what happens to them, and it’s a problem when one of my favorite moments of the series was when Miorine got told off by Suletta’s mom (who I also dislike). I have a mildly positive opinion of Suletta and Chuchu, but even the former’s constant flusteration and naive earnestness are beginning to wear thin.

I'm having a good time with Ergo Proxy so far. Would I want to hang out with Re-l and Vincent? No, but I am interested in seeing where their story goes. And Ergo Proxy seems less bleak than Texhnolyze, which helps.

Also, congratulations on getting married!

Thanks! I lost access to my old mosaic templates, and the one I'm currently using only has 36 slots

Also congrats on getting married! That's awesome, hope you and your significant other have an amazing life together!

Yo, long time no talk!

I see you still got a spectacular mosaic up, do you have the template by any chance? Also how've ya been?

Yeah, that's basically how I felt about it, but I kept on going, mostly for the historical value. I did the same for Maison Ikkoku, but that was considerably more difficult, given that I despised just about everybody in that show. I don't think I'll be able to do it a third time for Ranma.

It’s Alexia Midgar, who was introduced in episode 3. She combines tsundere and kuudere elements in a way I find novel and appealing. Plus she’s voiced by HanaKana. She did a great job voicing Beast Princess, my choice for Girl of the Year, in Love after World Domination.

Eminence in Shadow spoofs isekai LN tropes, but if you don’t like those tropes to begin with (and I don’t), you’re unlikely to be amused by it. You’re also unlikely to be entertained by Cid’s chuuni tendencies and edginess if you don’t find him likeable (and I don’t). Even worse are the elf/kemono/whatever girls Cid has gathered into his organization. Their personalities are paper-thin and their endless fawning would embarrass even the most overpowered isekai LN protagonist. I feel no compunction at all about fast-forwarding through their scenes. Anyway, now that the Alexia-centric arc is finished, she’s unfortunately been sidelined to make room for yet another romantic interest.

Bocchi is a lot of fun! It's kind of carrying the season for me. I find Do It Yourself a bit boring and "Utena with Gundams" turned out to be a lot cooler on paper than it is in practice.

I hadn't noticed you had dropped Urusei Yatsura. While it does have its moments, it does get a bit repetitive.

Also, lol at Eminence in Shadow. I admit it's crap, and if it wasn't for one character I would have dropped it and given it a 2/10 at most.

Sure I'm happy with my lists but I wouldn't mind taking a look at it.

What programs did you use to make that collage?

Oh ok, thanks

I see you’re watching Urusei Yatsura. I wanted to watch it but all I can find is the movies on crunchy roll. If you could let me know where to watch I’d appreciate it.

Ayo, it's Overlord LN good?

Btw, read The Beginning After the End, definitely the best isekai 🗿💯

Yeah, in the wake of Eva, a bunch of mecha anime with a similar plot and/or style were released, and RahXephon was one of them. Most of them have some kind of symbolism, whether it’s Mayan mythology and music in RahXephon, Norse mythology in Fafner, Indian chakras in Aquarion, or Noh drama in Gasaraki. But they differ in how heavily they lean on that pillar. Whereas RahXephon is like Eva on steroids, Fafner does little more than lift a few names. I didn’t “get” everything in RahXephon until I had rewatched it. So make of that what you will, haha.

That's cool, are there any other shows she's seen and you haven't?

Now that I think about it, I’ve seen more episodes of Keroro than I have of any other anime. It’s the sort of show where you have to get through 10 pleasant but forgettable episodes for each really great one. Despite occasional references to anime like LotGH, Akagi, and Ideon, sometimes it’s a bit too obviously aimed at elementary school-age kids. And more often than not, when it tries to be serious, the show ends up falling flat on its face. Which reminds me: does Gintama start off comedic and episodic, then get more serious and plot-based? I don’t remember any serious drama at all in those early episodes (which I admittedly watched a long time ago).

Great! I’ll ask around to see if anyone is interested or if anyone has suggestions for the show.

How do you feel about Wano now that you're caught up? The anime is adapting ROOF PIECE.

I’ve been going into the office on one or two days per week since last September (except during the holiday season when omicron was spreading like wildfire). While I had been dreading the return to the office after a year and a half, I actually found it a pleasant change of pace. Maybe it’s different for you because you hadn’t worked in the office for too long before the pandemic hit.

I was able to look past things like that in Lain and RahXephon because I was sufficiently interested in the plot/atmosphere, and in Utena I simply dismissed the symbolism as another facet of the show’s distinctive style and of little importance on its own. I’d like to revisit Utena someday, but it’s not the sort of show one rewatches on a whim, haha. In Texhnolyze, it wasn’t just the cryptic plot. I cared less and less about everything and everybody as the show went on. But I’ll still give Ergo Proxy a try.

Yes, I would like to get back into Gintama one day, but I’d like to finish Keroro Gunsou first, and the thing about that show is that the episodes’ plots are often tied to the time of year they were aired. Right now I’m aligned with the schedule, and hope to stay on track until I’ve finished it, which means I’ll be done in the spring of 2025. I’ll get to it eventually, I swear!

Ah, yes, a few of my friends were gushing over Elden Ring and the latest Metroid game. I’ve been playing the usual strategy games. Every time I make significant progress in Stellaris with my race of female anime characters, Paradox updates the game and I have to find a way to tweak the mods so they can keep running properly.

No worries, I’ve been trying to juggle work, anime, and other pursuits for the last 14 years! I know how difficult it is. Unfortunately, I only pop onto Discord every few months. I would like to restart our group chat by doing a group viewing (maybe Gun X Sword since last year’s Back Arrow had many similarities to it, or Fafner), but now that everyone is working I’m sure it will be far more difficult for us to find the time. I’ve been watching less anime and more films lately. So few anime nowadays have really interesting ideas.
