Being a mecha fanboy, I was pretty excited to come into contact with what many people consider the "origin" of all mecha anime. Yep, I started watching Mazinger Z. The animation is piss-poor and the storyline is as simplistic as it gets, yet perhaps one of the things that can't help but continuously entertain me is the crappy Hong Kong subtitles that throw off the (supposedly) serious scenes.

To wash the bad animation flavor out of my mouth, I'm also watching Turn A Gundam.

Finished Now and Then, Here and There and REC. REC, in particular, surprized me, because it doesn't give as much crap as a lot of other Romantic comedies do, probably because the whole series is only long enough to fit into one movie. This approximately 90-minute series accomplished a lot more in the 9 10-minute episodes it had than some other 26-episode series I've watched. I usually don't like this type of anime, but I'm glad this was an exception.

Watching Macross 7. This series is a sharp contrast to REC, because it stretches out the series with so much filler and so little explanation that I get irritated. I don't know if it's purposely funny that Basara is so damn into his music, or it's only that way to me because of how he sings in the most serious situations.

I'm on episode 19, and I'm hoping they will start explaining some of the stuff going on, because up to now it's been pretty formulatic.

Started watching Now and Then, Here and There.

I was surprized that I watched 8 episodes in one sitting- the plot really reached out and grabbed me. I look forward to how they conclude a story like this one in 13 episodes. One thing that irritates me, however, is the art. The characters all look too simplified to me, and Lala just plain freaks me out. I have to say the one part that really widened my eyes is when

Sara kills the soldier and escapes.

Hopefully Dizzy doesn't have a sister. :P

Took a break from Mazinkaiser real quick to watch MS Igloo. Personally, I think they should stop making the 1 year war side stories and make a real UC series.

Watching Mazinkaizer. Most people find shows like these pretty lame and Power-Rangery, but sometimes you need to watch something that DOESN'T require hours of hard thought afterwards.

It's nice to see that Mazinkaizer, while made in 2002, doesn't try to buy into current anime, but rather knows exactly what the hell it is and gives you as much action as you want.
