and my spilled beans made the page
Yuki, Yuki, Yuki. You are the only one I like. I'm sorry you're stuck in such a bullshit episode arc. That's like my own personal hell, to be trapped in a neverending time loop with those assholes, doing the same cliched summer activities fifteen thousand times.

You know, when you realize you only like one character, you should probably drop a series. And when they're engaged in bullshit repetition like this, you definitely should. I mean, on TNG they resolved a time loop in an episode, and even with the resets, there were still spaceships colliding and exploding. This show suffers from a severe lack of things exploding.

She needs to go around robbing banks, shaving Haruhi's head, setting that whiny little bitch Kyon on fire, having lots of random crazydirtysex, anything to break up the monotony. At least she's getting a lot of reading done.

I would totally scream out "GET THERE FASTER, LOSER!" every time Koizumi looked at the list.

God, this show. I was never crazy about it, but I love Yuki. It's like with the Fruits Basket manga. I haven't read the last one yet, but I'm at the point where I hate everyone but Yuki, but I've come this far and may as well finish it. I should have known to just stick with the anime. I really, really wanted Yuki to go on a punching spree and just punch everyone right in the face. I'm so sick of all of them.

D's also shown me a few episodes of.... Hatsukoi Limited? Is that what it's called? The one where everyone has the same face? Yeah. Boring. I didn't care about a single one of them.

I told D, please, please let's watch something that doesn't have middle school girls. So we checked out the first episode of Umineko no Naku Koro Ni, and, well, at least it's something different. Too soon to tell if it's good different. Maybe we'll watch the next one tonight.

But D looooves his moe slice-of-life schoolgirls. I just find it so... tedious. I mean, cute's fine, but can I please watch something that has an actual story?

We have been lamenting the lack of a good adventuring series. ToA kinda filled the void for a while, but yeah.

What is it with guys and that? Hubby's very into those too, and I know a couple of other guys that are fond of them. I like them, but yeah, sometimes I want more than that.

I don't know. I admit I liked K-ON a lot more than I thought I would, but I'd like something a little more grown up now and then. D's new favorite is Saki, which is schoolgirls playing Mahjongg, and I'm like, "Seriously? That's a show?" He made me watch an episode, and I didn't get it. At all.

I think, I THINK, for guys, moe and slice of life can often satisfy their threshold for following a show.

I didn't think the characters in Suzumiya were that bad; I'm not crazy about Kyon and Haruhi. Fruits Basket anime far superior to draggy angst-filled manga. In the end my favorite in that series was Hatsuharu the schizophrenic cow, who is practically a saint. My only gripe is his choice in girlfriends.

I take this as invitation for recommendations??
Many people like Darker than Black. I thought it was okay.
Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex series. Mainly episodic with core plot. I thought it was a very cerebral, thought-provoking Sci-Fi.
Minami-Ke series: Moe slice of life, but the humor was on the spot for me. It's not your average fanservice show. More in the vein of Azumanga.
Gintama: Has everything.
Mushishi: Very good episodic stories. Many episodes have better stories than an entire series.

Full Metal Alchemist and Honey and Clover. Give them another shot? The stories were good.

I'm a very hard person to recommend things to because I have very particular tastes. I think the only thing recommended to me that I actually liked was Dead Like Me. I have much better luck if I just stumble upon things on my own.

Ever tried stumbling over... Japanese television dramas?

Not really. I only watched Kimi wa Pet because I already loved the manga. I've got plenty of stuff to watch; it's just a matter of finding something I can really get into. Although basically it's just to get us through until the college football and fall TV seasons start up. Summer seems to be filled with all that reality show nonsense, and I'm not into that. So we've been watching a lot of Food Network and playing a lot of XBox.

Xbox! There are some quality video game fandoms out there, no? Resident Evil, for instance... I think.

Well, there's Tales of Vesperia, obviously. And the Star Ocean series. But I remember when I finished SO3 and poked around ff.net out of curiosity, the pairing I was mildly interested in was just about nonexistent, but there was page after page of--you guessed it--slash. Poor female characters. They never get any.

I think I'm just not cut out for fandom. I'll stay in my own corner writing fics for myself.
