Well... it's been a long month. Signing is coming up some time next week. I need to get my taxes filed.
But at least I have shows like Minami-ke to keep me sane(?).
There's just so much right in that Nico-Nico... Kana's just loving life and living large... Haruka's a little embarrassed, but otherwise enjoying herself... and Chiaki is completely lost and wondering how she got talked into this little performance.

Things are going to be a bit disjointed, and I'm sure there will be many things that get left out. I'm not writing a thesis here. Hell, I should be working right now. I'm assuming a level of familiarity with current anime characters, but I'm also going to be working from a set of ideas drawn from this essay. Take a minute or 20 to read through it, because I believe somewhere in the metaphor of the sheep, sheepdog and wolf lies a clearer definition of moe and GAR.

Without prior knowledge of the relationship between these three sisters, this episode would probably seem rather strange.
With that said, I spent the better part of this one cackling maniacally at the palpable dread and crescendo of terror and panic Chiaki and Kana experienced as the end drew near. You don't break Haruka-banchou's things and live to tell. Serious-business faces popping up left and right. Fujioka the teddybear-samurai was a bit odd, but what isn't in this show?
It's amazing how much fun a show based on a very simple premise, without any high-tech hardware or magic, can be.
Now for the pictures.
Now that's some horror.

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.
