wombat

Continuity blues

Much to my annoyance, I seem to have rented the third and fifth disks of DNA-Squared instead of the second and third. I should have read the boxes more carefully.

Turned out I didn't have to do any writing for this week's Methods class, just reading - which I can't do yet since I'm waiting for my student loan to come in so I can get the books. *sigh*

Uh-oh

Steven den Beste, whose political and engineering opinions I respect quite a bit, has laid down the cudgels and is now running a nice little anime review site yclept Chizumatic, after his favorite character from Mahoromatic. He picked up ADV's mecha series Gasaraki, and apparently didn't like it much. I haven't gotten around to watching my used copy of Disk 1 yet, but I'd like to hear some other opinions from people who've seen it, mainly because SDB also had an extremly visceral reaction to Steel Angel Kurumi on account of its setting in the Taisho Era; the short version is that he felt Steel Angel Kurumi whitewashed the political ugliness of that era to excess. Well, you can't please everyone...I rather liked the series, myself.
