Freezing: Ender’s Game with Tits

My what an attractive pair of glasses.

A lot of people have become turned off because of Freezing failing to capitalize on the intrigue that was set up in the first episode. Now, we all knew this was more of a fanservice anime but the first episode set up false hope for a decent overarching plot. However, since the episodes have progressed I have felt the tone shift to inter-pandora rivalry has not been entirely bereft of merit. For one the recent episodes have led me to draw a parallel between Freezing and one of my favorite books.

Not Dead, Current Season, Watched Umineko, etc.

Holy fuuuck, talk about blinking off the map! It occurred to me that besides the people I talk to through AIM and emails or the occasional comment I left here and there, my internet presence has been non-existent, which is pretty impressively the opposite of what it’s ever been.

Edit: By the way, I never said anything about it, but apparently I made honey-bunny worried, so I’ll take this chance to say that I’ve been on a twitter sabbatical, which is why I haven’t been posting there. (Why I never mentioned this should be obvious lol.)

So anyway, I’m sure some people (namely the contributors) are concerned about the fate of the Acadime Awards that were supposed to go through this month. I haven’t decided how I’m going to release them yet. Obviously, I hadn’t finished them at the start of the month, and between my becoming violently sick and figuring out how much work the posts would take, I decided to push the whole thing back. Thankfully, the series isn’t really time-sensitive, since it’s not like 2010 is going anywhere, so the posts will all come out at some time. I love the contributions I’ve gotten and will definitely make sure they all get seen (especially those of Taka, who’s managed to put thoughts into words about seiyuu that I’ve always wished I could.)

Which reminds me! Taka, who will be known as Thoughtcannon from now on I guess (aka @denpapopcorn), is now a member of this site! What he’ll post on or whether he’ll post at all is his choice, but he has no site of his own, and the way he looks at anime seems to me very similar to the way I do, so I begged him to join, and hopefully he seizes the opportunity~~
