[Lists 2010] All-time Faves and Rankings: Mecha

Standard

I was waiting till I finished the original Gundam to publish this list.  And when I finished that, then I wanted to wait until I finished Zeta Gundam.  However, my patience with Zeta Gundam has run out, and so here I am now, doing the list.  I have also incorporated some of my unpublished reviews so some entries do not stop with just one paragraph.

My Top Anime for 2008: Final Version

Standard

Happy New Year everyone!  This post was delayed because I was waiting for Mouryou no Hako’s last episode, and while waiting I was not in the mood to write any ‘thoughtful’ description about each anime on my list.  But now it’s finished, so enjoy!

So unlike in 2007, I feel perfectly fine now.  I don’t have headaches.  My room is a mess though, but blame it on the cold weather.  It creates the perfect mood for blogging because you become too lazy to do anything else like cleaning, organizing, washing–the mundane stuff.

Another more important difference from last year though, is the use of the watchlist and the matrix.  Before I had to research again on the shows that aired for that particular year, and it was such a bothersome task.  Clicking search result links like a zombie isn’t a fun way to be spending the last days of the year, right?  Another equally tedious task was how to rank the shows better, which got solved when one boring day at work the gods of anime gifted me with the matrix.  It’s not truly anything groundbreaking for me but it is a great help when sorting out what I think about each series.  Now the only thing left to solve is how the post writes itself lol.  Actually the description for each series is the only remaining problem now, because sometimes I forget what happened with a certain series.  2008 was a busy year for me–I had to study for JLPT 2, plow through my pile of books, try living a healthier lifestyle, think about my career, blah3x and other things in between.  So this could be my new challenge for 2009.  🙂

Now enough with the boring talk, and on with the list!

In Review: Armored Trooper Votoms Pailsen Files

Standard

Finally, a review post!  It’s been ages since I’ve done this–almost a year!  So today I blabber about yet another mecha show–this time it isn’t as flashy as Macross Frontier or Code Geass.  Now what made me and my lazy ass to write something?

This is the spin-off to the original VOTOMS series, one that I had read about but hadn’t been able to watch.  So when Pailsen Files came along, I decided to check it out.  (circa 2008)
