--Comment Part 2: Non-Haruhi Edition--

Haha! Watching Madoka for the first time after rewatching Sailor Moon as a classic favorite; that sounds like an interesting experience! ^_^

I've officially started my Manga Reading Challenge! Should be fun. Hopefully I can get pretty far in it. They're doing this weird leveled-sections system this year where you have to finish a section before moving on to do anything in the next. Like I have to finish 10 Novice items before I can start on any of the 15 required Apprentice-level items to reach that difficulty. Before the rules for this year were posted, I was actually thinking of also doing the Anime Watching Challenge but doing it in a more free-form fashion. I'd basically just keep a list of my started/finished dates of stuff I watch and work them into the Challenge items after-the-fact. However, this level-progression thing will make doing a free-form Watching Challenge much more difficult. I might still do it, but I'll most likely be "wasting" a bunch of watching, especially if I watch stuff as it airs. But whatever. I'm hoping to still watch a bunch of stuff this year. So far I started the second season of Mob Psycho 100 and the new Boogiepop anime. Good stuff so far. There are also still a LOT of stuff from 2018 that I really want to watch. Like I said before, 2018 seems to have been a rather great year for anime, despite also having some REALLY bad stuff as well.

While I was in Ohio, I played some Cards Against Humanity with my two older sisters, my 16-year-old niece (oldest sister's daughter), my younger brother, and brother's pretty young girlfriend (I think she's in her early 20s while me and my siblings are between 32 and 38). It was pretty amusing. Me and my sisters got decently intoxicated and my niece and my brother's girlfriend ended up doing the best for the night by a long shot. We older people felt a little defeated. =P But it was still fun. I played a couple of more gamer-game things with my mom while I was staying at her house: a Tetris-like tile laying game called Cottage Garden and a mathy dice manipulation game called Sentient. I'm not sure if she really liked them all that much; she just called them "interesting" games. Oh, and my little brother got me a new game for Christmas that was on my Amazon wishlist called Shards of Infinity. It's a pretty solid competitive deck building game which is very similar to Star Realms and Hero Realms.

That's pretty cool that your apartment has a nice view! And yeah, in 'Merica there are some people who set off a bunch of fireworks for New Year's. It wasn't too bad around my house, but I did hear a decent amount of pops going off before I passed out for the night. XD

And not much else going on with me at the moment. Just waiting for the weekend. 1.5 work days to go! ^_^

I'm kind of curious how I would have reacted to the 2009 episodes of Haruhi if I hadn't read the books first. Reading the original light novels prepared me in a way for the eight Endless Eights. Also, since the Melancholy book and other stories didn't give as much of a feeling of playing up Haruhi's more abusive antics for laughs as the anime did, the sense of her kind of being a selfish asshole had been there from the start so her reaching her absolute worst in Sigh wasn't that jarring for me. And there was a very obvious "reason" for Haruhi being that much of an asshole in Sigh: Jealousy. By this point in the story, she was sick of Kyon constantly fawning over Mikuru. She took the movie production as an opportunity to torment Mikuru while also having complete control of something (hence her wishes bleeding into the real world like crazy). This is why Kyon standing up to Haruhi was such a shock to her and was one of the most important moments in her development as a character.

Also, with Azumanga Daioh being one of my early classic favorites and since I'm actually a rather big fan of K-ON! (currently my #23 favorite series), I probably have a rather high tolerance for "the worst possible slice of life" in anime. XD Mikuru is probably my least favorite SOS member as well, although her and Koizumi are usually pretty close for that title. However, being one of my least favorite characters in the Suzumiya Haruhi series isn't really all that bad. The most interesting thing about Mikuru is the dynamic between her and Asahina-san (big) and the mystery surrounding the full extent of her character, both in her "small" and "big" forms. Koizumi also has some interesting mystery behind him, and his banter with Kyon never fails to be amusing.... But yeah, when compared to the other three members, those two definitely pale in comparison.

I'm glad that you liked Disappearance. While Sigh is probably still my favorite story overall, Disappearance does have some absolutely wonderful Nagato moments and the anime is just beautiful. I definitely think I'll have to re-watch the series sometime this year; and yes, that includes all eight E8s. XD

I did imply that I am indeed NOT a religious person, right? XD So yeah, my metaphor was mostly half-assed. But for a while now, most anime has been produced largely via a committee system and the original creators and publishers of the source material tend to have the largest amount of influence within that committee. As I recall that it was the original publisher of the light novels that were pushing for the eight-E8 format, there was very little that KyoAni or anyone else could do about it. It is a shame that the series lost fans because of it, even if I do still think it a little silly. Maybe if there wasn't such a backlash, the author might have been inspired to write more regularly and there would have been an incentive to produce more anime? Who knows.

Aaaand, sorry to cut this short and pretty much only talk about Haruhi, but something came up at work that I need to take care of before I leave. =P
Maybe I'll write another comment tomorrow if I'm not too busy. Talk to you later! ^_^
pluvia33 Jan 2, 1:34 PM
Hahaha! Your reaction to Haruhi is amusing. XD I will say, personally I never thought that the 2009 episodes were of lower art/animation quality compared to the 2006 episodes. I generally thought the 2009 episodes were of slightly better quality, and that's after watching the entire series intertwined in full story chronological order multiple times. Hmm, I don't know, maybe I'm just not that good of a judge of such things. =P And I'm not 100% sure based on your comment, so did you like Sigh or not like it?? The first time I read your comment, I thought it meant that you didn't like Sigh, but then reading it again I thought by, "How dare they alienate their viewers before airing the good stuff," you might have meant E8 was the alienating while Sigh is "good stuff"? At first I thought you meant Sigh was the alienating while Disappearance was the good stuff. I don't know. Maybe I'm overthinking things. I also thought that your initial comment of, "It also feels like they picked the most boring arcs they could find" was kind of amusing, because you know, before Sigh there are only two "arcs" in the 2009 episodes, right? Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody and Endless Eight. One of them is only one episode while the other was mostly one episode repeated 8 times. XD Kind of hard to really call those "arcs" in my opinion. And I always thought Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody was one of the most interesting single-chapter stories in the series. I loved Kyon and young Haruhi's interactions. ^_^

But yeah, I'm really interested to hear your more detailed thoughts on the series as a whole. If you write reviews for each part, I'll be sure to read them. Again, Haruhi is my favorite series; I'm a total shameless fanboy. But it is interesting to hear other people's thoughts on it. Endless Eight didn't bother me at all because I had already read the novels by the time the 2009 episodes came out and seeing the reactions online to how they handled it in the anime was just hilarious to me. Was it a weird thing for them to do? Yeah. Was it a bit of a waste of time? Kind of. But for people to have the entire series ruined for them because of it? I thought that was just dumb, especially when they claimed that it was previously their favorite series ever. If I were a religious man, I'd consider E8 to be a divine test meant to weed out the feeble Haruhiists. XD But I'd say that the new divine test of Haruhiism is to have faith that some day we might actually get more novels and have the series finished.... That's even trying on my shameless fanboy ass sometimes.

Oh, I can totally see how Oreimo could sour someone's enjoyment in anime as a whole. I think my rate of anime consumption did decline after watching the first season of that, but there were definitely other factors at work. Mostly just life getting in the way. I wasn't really able to get back into anime until after my separation/divorce and doing the Anime Watching Challenge in 2017. Now the only things messing with my consumption rates are my tabletop gaming hobby fighting for time and general laziness. And now I'm gearing up to get more into reading manga again and trying to do the Manga Reading Challenge in place of the Anime Watching Challenge this year, so we'll see how that works out.

Anyway, hope you had a good holiday season. I drove from New Mexico to Ohio and back to be with family for Christmas. That was fun for the most part, except that the roads were really bad (snow covered) on the way back. I did absolutely nothing for New Year's, and now I'm back at work after nearly 2 weeks off. I'm looking forward to the weekend coming back around again....
pluvia33 Dec 20, 2018 1:01 PM
Ah, cool! I feel like I've seen "The Dark Eye" logo somewhere before; maybe on Drive Thru RPG or a similar site. And yeah, I feel ya on not being a huge Star Wars fan. I've enjoyed the franchise well enough, but I never actually sat down and watched any of the movies until I was 24 years old or so (just 10 years ago). I was actually having a really stupid argument with my roommate a few weeks back because he got on this big tirade about people "stating their opinions as fact" and that it was the reason that the Han Solo spin-off movie didn't do well, because a bunch of assholes on the internet talked shit about it and such. I mentioned that I didn't go see that movie, despite going to see all of the other Star Wars movies in theaters, and that it was in no way influenced by the "assholes". He said, "Well, you aren't a big Star Wars fan anyway." Although that's technically true, it still annoyed me. I let it go, but I think that's EXACTY why Solo didn't do well. Not enough of the casual fans like me really wanted to see it. It just felt like a completely unnecessary movie; I didn't care to know anything about Han Solo's past before Episode 4. But whatever. To my roommate, it seems like Star Wars can do no wrong so arguing about it is pointless. =P

I did have a pretty amusing (yet short-lived) RPG campaign with him set in the Star Wars universe, though. It had a pretty memorable moment when our friend slight-of-hand shot a person-of-interest in the leg after a fight broke out, then bluffed and said "Oh my god! Are you okay!" and got him out of there and in our custody. Pretty amusing stuff.

Haha! It's funny to me that when you say "Halloween 2" that it could mean 3 different movies. That franchise is kind of a mess. Personally, I've only ever seen the original and the Rob Zombie remake of the original. Haven't had any desire to see any more of them from there. Some friends asked me if I was interested to see the 2018 Halloween movie (which was a direct sequel to the original, and therefore could be considered "Halloween 2" in a way), but I was like, nahhh. I'm not really that big of a fan of horror, though. Some horror in anime can be cool, but I'm willing to watch just about any genre in anime form, because I'm a dirty weeb. ^_^

Yeah, "A Place" definitely can come off as having a bit of a slice-of-life feel to it and kind of exploits the K-ON!-style "cute girls doing cute things" structure to tell its story, but it's not really a slice of life show. And yeah, while Haruhi definitely has slice-of-life elements to it, I'd never call it a true slice of life series because it actually has a storyline beyond characters just doing things. Hinamatsuri is probably the closest show I've seen which has a lot of stuff going on, but I'd still consider it a slice of life series because in the end it is really just about characters doing everyday things, even if some of them are super-powered. But yeah, I'd really like to re-watch Haruhi sometime soon, since it's my favorite series. There's just so little time in the day. Haha! And I actually look forward to watching the 2009 episodes again. Endless Eight was one of the most amusing anime experiences I've ever had, and Sigh is one of my favorite arcs.

I never really hated Chibiusa. I've never really HATED many fictional characters, or even been all that annoyed by them like a lot of people seem to be. Off the top of my head, the only characters I can think of that I've hated are Light from Death Note, Biba from Kabaneri, and the final bad guy from Texhnolyze. Out of those three, I think the asshole from Texhnolyze is the only one that I hated as intended by the creator. I mostly hated Light and Biba because I felt that they were badly constructed characters on top of being total assholes. I think the closest thing to a character that has provoked feelings of hate-via-annoyance in me was Kirino from OreImo. =P
pluvia33 Dec 10, 2018 3:00 PM
That's cool that you're in an RPG campaign, even if you're not all that into it. Are you guys actually using D&D or a different system? At this point I'm pretty much Pathfinder or nothing when it comes to fantasy stuff myself. I'm way too invested in the system that playing anything else just doesn't make any sense if it's for a fantasy game. Well, unless it's a completely different system that does something unique with the experience, but I definitely have no reason to ever go back to D&D now.

Yeah, the volume of anime coming out each season is the real issue these days. I don't engage much in the community, so I don't get much of a sense for what is hype anymore. I usually just skim through the Anime News Network anime preview guide each season to figure out what might be of interest to me. I read some of the synopsis at the beginning and scroll through to see what the reviewers scored it. If the series looks interesting and the scores were mostly 3 out of 5 or better, I'll probably try to check it out. If something got lower scores, I'll skim through the actual reviews, etc. I think it might be easier to sift through it all when you don't have to deal with much of the "noise" of the fandom. Being able to red about things at work also helps. =P

Sora yori mo Tooi Basho (A Place Further Than The Universe) is the "South Pole" series, although I'd hesitate to actually call it a "slice of life" show. It doesn't even have that genre tag on MAL and they can be rather liberal with what they give that genre. I mean, they attach that genre to Suzumiya Haruhi and Clannad! XD But yeah, Sora yori mo Tooi Basho is a rather good show. It made it to the #33 spot on my Top 100. Oh, and Yuru Camp is DEFINITELY Slice of Life; about the most slice-of-life show of the year!

I think Hotaru was my first time ever having Key-style moe feelings for a character before I even knew that was a thing. I just wanted to give her a hug and protect her. XD I didn't think Hotaru was all that moody/gothic of a character, but Saturn was kind of edgy. I didn't mind either of them (as they kind of are different characters). I had re-watched it after I was in my 20s so I don't think it was just my old moody self blinding my feelings. =P
pluvia33 Dec 4, 2018 10:30 AM
Yeah, I've mostly given up on trading card games. Magic was my introduction to "proper" tabletop gaming back when I was 12 or so, but I'd stopped playing and got rid of nearly all of my cards before I graduated high school. Aside from the money sink as you mentioned, I'm also just not that competitive of a gamer so it stopped being fun for me. Now I just play "boxed" board and card games, and I'm still into tabletop RPGs but don't get a chance to play very often anymore. That sucks that you lost all of those valuable cards, though. I got into the game during 4th Edition, so probably didn't ditch any super pricy cards.

As far as anime this year goes, I personally feel that it had just as many great new anime as any other year. In addition to Asobi Asobase, four other new shows from this year cracked my Top 100: Sora yori mo Tooi Basho, Yuru Camp, Comic Girls, and Hinamatsuri. And that's with the limited number of things that I've been able to actually watch from this year; there are a number of other things that I'm really itching to watch/finish. Of course tastes are subjective and I'm a sucker for slice of life shows, but I'd say that Sora yori mo Tooi Basho and Hinamatsuri at least are rather great in an objective sense. However, I'd say that this year also seems to have just as many sequels, mediocre, and absolute trash shows as any other year, if not more. There's just a TON of anime coming out each season; it feels like more comes out each year than the previous. It's a good time to be an anime fan, but it can also be overwhelming to try to sift through all the shit out there. =P

Yeah, I loved Sailor Saturn back in the day. I wanted Hotaru to be my daughter. Was even thinking of making Hotaru my daughter's middle name if I ever had one. Later I gravitated towards making this hypothetical child's middle name Rhea instead, after one of Saturn's moons. But yeah, at this point I don't know if I'll ever have any kids so it's kind of a moot point. XD So yep, I'd probably agree about that season being my favorite as well. I'd still like to watch Sailor Stars at some point just for the sake of completionism.

Haha! Yeah, "no fighting in the War Room" is one of the main Dr. Strangelove references that my roommate uses a lot. And yeah, Clerks and just about all of the Kevin Smith Jersey movies are pretty damn quotable. "I'm not even supposed to be here today!" "Salsa Shark!" "It is you who are the ball lickers!" "It's okay, I'm taking it back." Good stuff. I don't think I've ever actually watched any of the Godfather movies all the way through and I don't think I ever will at this point. I'm not a particularly big fan of mafia stories. I need to watch Pulp Fiction again sometime and still need to watch Reservoir Dogs for the first time. Oh, and I love Life of Brian! Probably my favorite thing I've seen from Monty Python. Kind of weird since I don't particularly love or hate religion at all and for me as a tabletop nerd to not hold up Holy Grail as my favorite is also a little odd. But if I had to think about it, I'd say I probably like the fact that the comedy feels a little more subtle and organic in Life of Brain compared to their other works, of course until the completely ridiculous crucifixion scene at the end. XD

Man, holding yourself to a "review everything" policy is pretty hardcore! Good luck with getting through your backlog! I tend to do most of my non-work work at work as well, writing blog posts and comments and game rules and such. I haven't been all that productive lately, though. I started making prototype cards for a new game that I'm working on a few weeks ago, but haven't done any work on it for a while. Been kind of lazy and creatively tapped out a bit, I guess. Maybe after I come back from Thanksgiving I'll be more in the mood to work on it. Yay 6-day weekend!! ^_^

I have gotten into watching more anime over the last few days after a bit of a little dry spell. Finished off Asobi Asobase, which made it to #71 on my working Top 100 spreadsheet, and my roommate and I have finally started watching My Hero Academia together after he caught up to were I was (the middle of season 3). Only have 4 episodes left of that now! Haven't watched any Akame ga Kill lately though. Maybe I'll get back to that this weekend.

Haha, "monkey on crack". XD I don't quite remember that episode. I kind of want to watch Sailor Moon again now, but re-watching stuff when I can watch new stuff seems like such a waste! =P I do still need to watch Sailor Stars some day. Maybe I'll re-watch the series to lead up to that whenever I'm ready.... Although, looking at your list, you don't seem to have thought very highly of Sailor Stars. XD

Man, you talking about having stories from the perspective of Gaen or Oshino makes me want prequel stories of when all of the adult specialists were in school together or whatnot. I wonder if the author has written anything like that yet. I mean, with how he seems to refuse to let the series die, it kind of seems inevitable. I mean, there are already two seasons of the novels that started after the supposed "Final Season".
pluvia33 Nov 9, 2018 7:56 AM
My roommate references Dr. Strangelove A LOT so I'd like to see it just for that reason alone, so I can have full context of the references. XD I can totally understand about 2001 getting boring; I did come close to feeling that way when I watched it. But the pace seems very deliberate and feels really immersive. And as you said, it just looks so damn good! Even though it wasn't done by Kubrick, I'd like to watch the sequel at some point.

My main goal now is to get my Watching list to the point where it only includes things that I'm truly watching. I'm sure that I'll still have multiple fully-aired shows on there at once, though, because of some shows that I'm watching by myself then others that I'm watching with other people. But even still, out of the 51 items in my Watching list, 40 of them are ones that I can for-sure watch and finish (or get to a dropping point) on my own. That's kind of out of hand. XD

Haha! I had a similar experience with watching Sailor Moon during my pre-teen/teen years and then watching it again in my mid-20s. Mercury was also my favorite back in the day, but I switched over to Jupiter upon re-watching. No offense, but for me, Venus was always kind of just "there" during both of my viewings. I never had any strong feelings about her one way or the other, which I think I might have mentioned to you before. I had a similar "waifu flip" with Evangelion. I was a Rei fan back in the day, but switched to Asuka later in life. That's likely due to me just developing a taste for tsundere characters, which Asuka is kind of the OG of that archetype. Also, a lot of things about Rei became a bit more creepy the more I thought about it. =P

Gaen is definitely one of the "coolest" characters in Monogatari, kind of like a female version of Oshino Meme. Similarly, Oshino doesn't rank all that high for me when it comes to the characters in that series. Other than Kaiki, the older specialists don't really feel like they have that much personality to me. The other three (including Kagenui in this) definitely have STYLE to spare, but when it comes to who they are, so much about them is shrouded in mystery that they feel more like forces of nature than people, if that makes sense. XD
pluvia33 Nov 5, 2018 8:19 AM
Although it's been a very long time since I saw A Clockwork Orange, I did finally get around to watching 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time just this past year. I was pretty amazed at how well the movie still holds up for the most part, considering that it's 50 years old now!! I need to watch more Kubrick movies. I'd especially like to see Dr. Strangelove soon.

Hahaha! Well, my PTW list is another thing all together. I was talking about my WATCHING list! XD I've left WAY too many things on there without finishing them. I've started working on it now. I was a little frustrated with figuring out where to start (since there are over 50 items in there right now), so I just started at the top with Akame ga Kill. Since it's a 24 episode series, I was half hoping that I wouldn't get that into it so I could justify just dropping it, but episodes 4-6 have been entertaining enough that I think I'll go the distance. I highly doubt that it will crack my Top 100, but it has the potential to get a solid 8. I'm also trying to push through other shows that I've been watching with my roommate but got distracted from. Been getting back to watching Asobi Asobase and watched episodes 3-9 over the weekend. That show is kind of bonkers in the best way possible, at least to my tastes.

I've bloated my PTW list to a point that I'll pretty much DEFINITELY never watch everything that's on there as it currently clocks in at 1,336 items. I kind of did that on purpose a little while ago as a way to just have a much of stuff to pick from in there from a lot of different time periods. I'd like to diversify my watching a bit more after I work through my Watching list. Since I don't plan to do the Anime Watching Challenge next year, that will give me something to work towards in its place. Although I am strongly considering doing the Manga Reading Challenge instead, though I'm not sure at what difficulty.

That's interesting that you're a Gaen fan because she's easily one of my (and my roommate's) least favorite characters in the series. Not to say that I really "dislike" her; I just really like most of the other characters much more. She got a bit more interesting to me in Owarimonogatari 2nd Season, though. I don't know why, but I usually find it pretty easy for me to sort and rank my preferences, especially when it comes to anime-related topics. I wouldn't have been able to do my Top 100 if that wasn't the case. I've thought about doing a Top 100 list for characters as well, across all anime/manga series, but that is a bit more of a daunting task than my series list. I have a pretty decent Top 30 on my working list so far, but there are just a LOT of things to go through and think about for such a list....

Anyway, don't really have anything else to report. Have a great day! ^_^
pluvia33 Oct 30, 2018 12:25 PM
Haha! I've only seen A Clockwork Orange once in my life, and that was about 15 years ago when I was 19 or 20. I should sit down and give it another watch sometime.

I finished my Anime Watching Challenge over the weekend! It's really nice to have that behind me now. Hopefully the admin review will go smoothly and I won't have to do any adjustments or extra watching. I tried to focus on the most straight forward items available.

Looking at our conversation history, I'll have to see about going ahead and starting Girls' Last Tour soon just so it's on my list and ready, but I do really need to work on getting through as many of my "Watching" items as possible. I'm embarrassed by having more than 50 items in that section without being a crazy "watching everything each season" kind of person. =P

Glad that you enjoyed Hitagi End! Although I love Araragi (he's my second favorite character after Senjougahara), Kaiki stepping in as the lead in that arc worked wonderfully and it is easily one of my favorite overall arcs in the series. Kaiki plays off of Senjougahara and Sengoku perfectly. And yeah, Hanekawa is a rather great character, too. Kizumonogatari played a big part in me liking her, but Nekomonogatari (White) definitely helped in that regard. It's hard for me to decide if Hanekawa or Kaiki is my 4th favorite character in the series (my third favorite being Shinobu/Kiss-shot).

Dammit! I really need to make sure I don't forget about Girls' Last Tour when I'm done with the Challenge. That was one of the shows that I was most interested in checking out from the past year or so that I didn't actually see yet. It totally looks like my kind of series. If you remember this conversation and don't see it in my Watching or Completed by late December, give me a reminder if you can. I blotted my PTW like crazy with really old stuff a while back so it's not really the best reminder for me on its own anymore. XD

But yeah, I think the big deal around the internet was about some new rules on security and personal information or some shit. Stuff that we as the end customer don't really see, other than having to agree to a bunch of new Terms and Conditions for a lot of websites. Apparently MAL's infrastructure really sucked.

I've also been rewatching the Monogatari Series, showing it to my roommate for the first time in mostly chronological order. We're currently half way through Koyomimonogatari, so soon I'll be able to FINALLY watch Owarimonogatari 2nd Season for the first time! That's actually set to be part of my Anime Watching Challenge. XD Kind of sucks that the next part, Zoku Owarimonogatari, is going to be a movie. Hopefully they'll have a US screening that I can go to relatively quickly after it starts showing in Japan, or at least have the Aniplex USA expensive ass Blu-ray come out without too much delay. Not that there would be too much of a rush to see it. It seems like the series overall (the novels and the anime) is kind of slowing down with how frequently things come out.

I think Bakemonogatari might still be my favorite part of the series as well, although I pretty much treat the franchise as a whole as a single unit at this point. I really love the Kizumonogatari trilogy and the English audio book of the original novel (really sad that they don't seem to be making any more of those). And there are definitely moments in Monogatari Second Season that are just great, such as pretty much anything with Kaiki in it (I love that asshole). But my favorite episode in the entire series is probably still when Koyomi and Senjougahara went on their little date in Bakemonogatari.

Yeah, I've been tempted to just order the Australian release of A Silent Voice, but I don't want to go through the hassle of trying to play Blu-rays that aren't from my region and not being able to take it to other people's place to watch (like I did with your name.). I also feel like a US release of the movie SHOULD be inevitable. I still find it weird that it hasn't happened yet when your name. and In This Corner of the World have both been out for a while over here. It seems like Shout Factory, Funimation, or Sentai would be champing at the bit to get their hands on that movie! Maybe there are complications with the license? Maybe they're asking for too much money? I don't know. Whatever it is, I hope it's sorted out soon so I can own that wonderful movie and watch it with friends without resorting to fansubs/rips.

I see. I remember seeing some charming clips.
