I commited a second cardinal sin. Unbeknownst to me, one of our group is that person who flips to the last page when starting a book. I made the mistake of supplying Miss Last-Page with links to the various Wikipedia pages for the shows in the hopper. I was very clear up front that the links were for after viewing.
I hit Haibane's wiki page to assess the potential damage and discovered that it is at least somewhat thin on plot details. Tragedy not quite averted, but it wasn't a complete loss.
Alright, so we're starting into the hot and heavy of Haibane Renmei at this point: episodes 8-13. People are disappearing, others are getting sick, and back stories are filling in.
I did help out a little with pointing out times during the show that deserve special attention to detail.
At the end of the show, at least one person had come to the prevailing conclusion about what Glie could represent. I did what I could to fill in the gaps with observations based on my multiple viewings of the show and left them all to stew on the show.
I'll find out what they really all thought about it this next week.
Oh, and to pad out the schedule at the end, we watched the first two episodes of Tenchi Muyo OVA 1. It makes for easy fluff to kill time before everyone is present, or afterward if some people have to leave early.
Next week we start into some solid sci-fi / space opera with Crest of the Stars.
