Man To Aru Majutsu no Index is awesome.  Why would I ever stop reading this.  I need to checked out To Aru Kagaku no Railgun after I catch up with Index.
Eugh!
I'm hoping it's significantly better than the anime. Touma is easily my least favorite protagonist.. ever.
Well, I won't get into that here, but just about everything that he is is generic and hate-able. I could go on forever about why and how much I hate him.
Index herself is equally rage-inducing. The only thing that in any way redeemed the show for me was the other characters; Specifically Accelerator.
I liked Railgun more as a whole, personally.
I don't really have a problem with Touma or Index at all.  I'm at volume 6 now and the focus has shifted to Accelerator yet again.  This dude gets jumped A LOT because everybody has to be the STRONGEST RRAGHHH.

ARGH MY ARMS ARE BROKEN

EDIT:

I feel bad for Vector.  Accelerator has complete control over her.

So, I've been told of FLCL. As a person who already doesn't drive safe on his vespa, should I watch it?

If you have a very perverted sense of humor, you should definitely watch it. Because even if you don't get the plot at all, it is still hilarious.

But what about the other people on the road? should I not watch it for their sake?

Almost done catching up in the Index manga.  I'm on chapter 42 out of the 44 currently.  After I'm up-to-date I plan on reading the Railgun manga as well as playing Tsumihoroboshi on the side.

EDIT:
Caught up with Index.  Reading Railgun or should I say CHOUDENJIBOU?!

Weee my Demonbane purchase finally processed (apparently some sort of bug occurred in their system) and I'm about to start playing.

Aaaand for some reason the animation for Demonbane's first attack shows up as a black screen even as the audio plays through just fine. This is disappointing.

There's a good reason for that. Or maybe not.

*laughs* In all seriousness its only that one animation, which I thankfully found on youtube, that I've seen so far thats done that. Really odd. Rather disappointed that the animations appear to lack subtitles as well.

This current arc in Railgun is very sad.  It's the 6-parter called July 24th.  Probably the best arc in Railgun yet, seeing as everything so far has been leading up to it.  I'm on volume 3 now.

I finished watching Trapeze today, VERY good. It's a show that's weird, but does it very well. There's 11 episodes, each containing there own self-contained story, character development, and satisfying resolution. What's more, is that the entire series takes place in a 7-8 day period where each story takes place in an intermingled fashion, and as you follow each character, you'll see characters from both future and past episodes doing their thing, and you realize the good doctor Irabu is taking care of all of them.

You see, the story is about a rather weird and easygoing psychiatrist named Irabu, who's weird in that he seems to be comprised of 3 different people: An eccentric with a bear mascot head, a little girl, and a rather lanky girly-man. It's never explained whether or not he has a split personality, or if there's actually three people all representing one doctor, but it's one of the anime's oddities that is rather quirky and fun to watch. All of his patients are rather realistically mentally and psychologically ill people, that all have interesting backstories and personalities. It's actually very entertaining to watch them as they deal with their problems, and eventually overcome them.

It's short, but sweet, and I highly recommend it. I'm not sure if any of the psychiatric tips that the real-life doctor Fukuiichi (who literally pauses the show to tell you facts) espouses are true at all, but it would seem that way, and it's another quirk that's fun to have around.

Plus, the opening and ending songs are catchy as heck. I'll need to look them up some time. Also, while it's called Trapeze, there is actually only one character that is in a circus.

I paused my watching of Giant Robo to watch Trapeze, now back to Robo.

HSOTD episode 9. More fan service.

Apparently grabbing a girl's boob gives her the resolve to fight.

I weep for my shattered insanity.

Also, Saeko likes killing so much she gets aroused when she's beating the shit outta some poor Gs.

What is this shit

Ein, you once more assume the role as an eldritch patron goddess, giving me knowledge fell and terrible. I salute thee, thou Hawaiian Elder Goddess of macabre knowledge and that which should not be known to mortal men. Without you, I would have never been able to access such terrifying new vistas of alien comprehension. You are truly a generous benefactor.

Ia! Ia! Ein! She with the Thousand Dolls!

You should go out and buy yourself a 1TB drive like I did.
I plan on getting another 1TB and a case for my internal 500GB, then I'll swap the two out.

Just finished FLCL.

That show is very random, very silly, and very NSFW.
