Nit Pick of the week

In My Love Story

The female lead can't seem to lift Takeo's ball... which is a 16 pound ball

DEAR GOODNESS do some weights... It is only 16 pounds.

On a side note: WOW!!! a 6 pound ball? I wish my bowling places had lighter balls that I could use.

Plastic Memories is bugging me. The plot is basically "Human falls in love with an android", right? "Tsukasa the human falls in love with Isla the android." So it's a romance with a setting more interesting than a cliche japanese high school, that's a good thing, right?

tl:dr; By making a romance with a sci-fi setting, neither the romance or the sci-fi setting feel complete and it just comes out mediocre. I'm enjoying the series nontheless, and it's kept my attention more than any other recent anime I've tried over the last couple months. But it could be so much better, I think.

Maybe I'm being way too critical too early, and the creators will do more with the setting or address my criticism in either the last couple episodes of this season or in a later season.

It was inevitable


In other news there's a guy on youtube releasing the Gaia Gear radio drama with english captions.
For those unaware, Gaia Gear was a novel written by Yoshiyuki Tomino, creator of the original Gundam. It was created before Gundam F91, and so presents an alternate timeline of the late Universal Century, and takes place in the year UC 203. The radio drama has some notable differences in the story from the novel, but the plot goes something like this.

In the year UC 203, the space colony independence movement and the Earth Federation are once again at war, this time with the vehicles known as Man Machines, the advanced successors to the now outdated mobile suits. The Earth Sphere is policed by the corrupt Man Hunter Attachment, who battle with the resistance force Metatron. Out of desperation Metatron attempts to create a Memory Clone of one of the heroes of the Universal Century, one who could become their leader and lead the independence movement to victory. And so we go to our hero, a young man raised on a remote island of the Pacific Ocean who bears the name Affranchi Char...

Gotta give credit to the animators that put a ton effort towards details like Reflections and Camera images. Been seeing a ton where a reflection reflects at a beautiful angle and also includes a ton of stuff from the background its reflecting and just now saw a phonecamera show the image that it was recording perfectly as it was when the character did it 'outside' the lens...

On one hand, char as the main character sounds kinda' awesome.

On the other, I can't help but feel we should warn them to lock away their underage daughters. I mean, it's too late now, but...

Yo so I'm caught up with The Heroic Legend of Arslan/Arslan Senki and I am really surprised that Bay12 isn't all over it.

Like seriously it's got great visuals, an epic storyline about a prince reclaiming his throne from foreign invaders is, so low fantasy that it is only a few steps away from historical fiction, medieval Persian setting, nice tactics and cultural/politics stuff, great historical accuracy, and is adapted from a manga by the guy who made Full Metal Alchemist which is in turn an adaptation of a novel series by the same guy who wrote the Legend of Galactic Heroes novels.

It's pretty damn great.

Fullmetal Alchemist was made by a woman, actually.

All fanfics are heresy, each and every one, especially the shipping ones. Those are by far the worst.

Did not know that. Sorry. I actually haven't seen FMA myself so I don't know much about it.

I'm watching Arslan Senki, and I also watched the old OVAs for the series first. Actually, I'd recommend to skip those, watch the new show and only go back and check the old OVAs out afterwards to see an alternate version of some scenes later. The new TV version does it much better, and it sort of spoils it to know little bits of the plot from the OVAs.
