While my credit card gently weeps...

Hokay, so I dropped some change this last week on:

1)Vandread, knowing that further delay could mean never getting it.

2)Shingu, because I'm a sucker for a sci-fi story even if the box art is a less than stellar.

3)Planetes, because hard sci-fi has a place in my library too.

 

I've got my eye on the Haruhi LE bundle, but I'm holding out to for when Robert gets the Gurren Lagann OST in stock to bundle it all up.

Actually, I'm a couple episodes in to Vandread, but not far enough to give an honest assessment of the plot. Gonzo's been real hit-and-miss with the character designs so far. Characters' proportions swing pretty wildly from one scene to the next.

The art style in the second episode of Vandread really drifts a lot. It's common in this kind of show for the primary production house to farm out animation to other studios, and I think that episode was done by someone else.

Regardless, they didn't get any more work. The rest of the series the art style is quite consistent.

2 Didn't anybody ever tell you that putting shit on a credit card right before you close on a house = bad?

Good to hear. For a while I was wondering if the style change was intentional. It didn't have the feel of an homage to another style.

As for the card, I was being faceitous. My current balance is only a tiny fraction of the available credit.

5 It's a pretty useful term. Yandere is another good one.
