lmao what is wrong with Alyssa Milano? What did she do to you?

Also I agree with this name change. Sabrina was epic. Except for Season 7 without Hilda and Zelda. That was more crap than the animated series could have ever hoped to be.

The animated series was legendary. How dare you suggest it was anything less?!

The animated series was what got me into the original Sabrina series. It was not crap, and should not be treated as such.
This has been a post.

She's almost as bad as Winona Ryder. Almost.

As for the animated series, it's cute that you can be so completely wrong, Andy. The animated series was utterly perfect in every way!

And as I continued my praise only grew. Man that ending was better than Utena, Monster and the Ideon. Probably Tied with LotGH as my favourite ending ever.

It may have almost been 2 years since episode one was released but the last episode of Kuttsukiboshi is out.

And it was horrible.

But I enjoyed it for its horribleness.

I think you'll all find that it was Jon who said that the animated series was crap! I have never seen the animated series, I merely stated that even under the assumption that his statement was true, Season 7 of the live-action was worse!

Well, damn. With nothing better to come with, and risk of being irrelevant, here's my reaction to the most recent Lazy High School Sherlock Holmes (AKA HYOUKA):

It does seem the only real praise for that show is coming from the hardcore KyoAni fanboys, and fanboys will eat anything up. Bit of a shame considering they could have adapted more Haruhi, given us more Keion or even Little Busters. I'm presuming all 3 of those would have sold better than this will.

Of course I haven't seen this new show yet so I can't give any real reaction.

Well it is good, and the production quality is high (but it's KyoAni so that's granted), but the story is probably too boring to some.

I mean, it's not even short slice-of-life arcs, it's just one big, very trivial mystery that no one really cares about.

Meh, I guess my next KyoAni venture will be the Full Metal Panic franchise.

Honestly not sure on why Little Busters didn't go to KyoAni, only response was on twitter saying something about them being busy. Hopefully JC Staff does a good job with it, especially considering how Little Busters plays. And now that this happened, who will be getting Rewrite is up in the air.

FMP was a pretty fun ride. Didn't really care much for the serious portions of it though.

I've never really seen any Full Metal Panic, but seen it mentioned plenty, is it any good at all?

And with all this hype of little Busters it's a definite watch for me.

I thought Avengers was okay but I wouldn't see it again in theatres. (Actually, I'd probably only see it again if it was on TV.)

:( I guess I just didn't understand what all the hype was about.

The hype was that it was amazing! Joss Whedon took those characters and made them three-dimensional and interesting, more than any of the previous directors had managed to. It was as visually awesome and action-packed as a comic book movie should be but the story was amazing and there was actual soul and humanity in the way it was executed. That's my take on it anyway XD

I guess all the spazzing was from comic book fans then. XD; I mean, I did enjoy the movie and I don't regret seeing it or anything but I hadn't seen any of the previous movies involving any of the characters and had no clue what was going on for the (very long) set-up part of the movie.

Though once this assignment I'm procrastinating on is out of the way, I do intend to go watch most of the movies since almost all of them were added to Netflix this week. (b' ')b

I think seeing all the movies beforehand really helps to up your enthusiasm. I've always been sort of a comic book fan, but I never cared much for any of the Avengers characters (and didn't even know some of them existed) until recently. It's all to do with the movies (except Hulk) which were fun and didn't take themselves too seriously except where it came to characters. You actually care about the characters and having them come back in one well-written, well directed movie is just a lot of fun.

Yay, someone else who shares my opinion! I mean, it was fine and all - especially HULK SMASH - but I definitely wouldn't pay to see it again.

Yeah I felt the same. So I'm in the same boat. It underwhelmed me. I had heard a lot of good things, though I had my doubts. It wasn't an epic like I had believed it to be. Then again, a superhero film like that was always going to lack development. Too many big characters to try and get into the limelight. Downey was fantastic as always though.
