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

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! ^_^

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.

Thanks, man.

I really should watch that show one day.

Hey Dude! Yeah, it's been a while! Glad that you're not dead. XD

But really, glad to hear that you've been able to take a break and get more excited for anime again. Burnout can definitely be a thing with anime when we're getting hit with 20+ new shows each season.

I've been doing well. MAL shitting itself kind of took me out of my anime watching groove, though. I was on track to finish my AWC really early, but it's October now and I'm still not finished! I only have 27 episodes worth of stuff to finish off the Challenge so I should be fine, but it still sucks that I got behind. I was also trying to watch eight different new shows from last season, but only got 1 or 2 episodes into each one. Hopefully I'll get my anime groove back soon, but it's hard to manage my time between anime, board games, work, exercise, and general laziness.

Oh! In some other personal anime news, I've actually written a few reviews on here now!! After being on this website for 9 years, watching the absolutely terrible Magical Girl Site got me to write my first review. That is seriously the worst "proper" anime that I've ever let myself suffer through. I've also finally gotten around to updating my Top 100 List a day before you wrote your new comment to me. ^_^

I also completely missed Golden Kamuy. XD I was planning to watch it, but I didn't catch episode 1 when it came out and then I started hearing about (and seeing some clips of) the bad CG animals and that pretty much turned me off to the anime. I think I'll just try to get into the manga sometime at this point; it's like Berserk all over again. Cells at Work is one of the shows from last season that I've only seen one episode of. It seems like a pretty fun series and I can see myself finishing it eventually. But now there's NEW STUFF coming this season! Including Index III which is a must-watch for me and my roommate.... Not enough time in the day!!

I'm still kind of sad and bitter that there hasn't been a North American Blu-ray release of A Silent Voice yet. -_- Man, that is crazy expensive, though. I just checked Amazon and they have the official US release of Higurashi (the first season, Kai, and Rei) all in a single Blu-ray set for $75! I actually need to get around to buying that.... Don't know if I can get it for a little cheaper on RightStuf during a Sentai sale, though, so I'll wait until I get home from work to do more research. I did finally get around to buying Toradora! and Kimi ni Todoke on Blu-ray, though! Speaking of which, did you ever get around to checking out Toradora? If not, you should totally get on that if you are feeling re-energized about anime right now. ^_^

Anyway, again, it was good to hear from you, dude! Have a good one and talk to you later!
