11:16 pm - Is it time for an I ATEN'T DEAD post?
Oh look, here I am again. Not that I've actually gone anywhere. (Though I may be going somewhere later in the year. Maybe. More on that when it's definite.)

In fact, the last week seems notable for the complete absence of stuff happening. I had classes, now they are sorted out. Because of said scheduling, I couldn't get to clubs. And I my attempts to organise my internship thing are caught up in the relay of forwarding to the appropriate individuals. Sigh.

Apart from that, erm, I've been watching anime in my free time. Or when out Internet was inexplicably down for a few hours today. Oh, and in the future I have David Copperfield to look forward to next weekend with Mother Dearest.

Fandom-wise, I am hoping the subs for the new FMA:B episode is up quickly (ie. When I wake up tomorrow), so I can see that ASAP given the flailgasms from fandom over it. Though I can sort of understand why, given the content - and next week looks to be a goodun' as well.
Current Mood: blankblank

Failgasms from FMA? *goes to find RAW*.

Endless Eight has also ended, btw...

If you are familiar with the manga, it was a fairly major scene - one that Arakawa said she was most looking forward to seeing animated. And the reaction seems to be that it was well done.

Endless Eight has also ended, btw...

A statement that makes me LOL. But also pleases me. Wonder what'll be next.

Mustang's Crowning Episode of Awesome, you mean? Yeah, that was awesome and then some... But then the reveal at the end. Yeah, next week is going to be interesting as well.

I actually watched and mostly liked all the Endless Eight episodes. But there was pityfully little pacing or buildup to that resolution. And the way the resolution was shown felt a little... anticlimactic as well.

I wonder what the odds are of getting two pair vs a royal flush in the first deal in a hand of poker. 1 in 15532, perhaps?

I'm really looking forward to next week, being the mildly batshit Hoho fan that I am (and I love all Ed and Hohopapa scenes, so... yeah). But yes, this week is basically Mustang at his most epic - until the Envy curbstomp comes along.

At this point I'm thinking I might just wait until this entire series of Haruhi is done before watching. I will admit the reaction from fandom to Endless Eight has been hilarious, though.

Damned if I know.

It'll be my first real intro to Hohenheim; I only know him from the first anime. But that just makes things more interesting.

For the record: I really did misread your post as saying 'failgasm', and wanted to see what the wank would be about. But the ep is so awesome that people were having a flailgasm... Which is well-deserved.

I'm currently inactive enough to want to watch those eps as they come out. I'm not really in the fandom, though.

The odds are higher than that, unfortunately. Just the royal flush alone already has odds of roughly 700 000 to 1.

I was fascinated with Hohenheim from the very start, and so the first anime did so little with him was kinda disappointing. The manga does so much more with him (and his relationship with his sons), which is one of many reasons I prefer it.

It really does sound quite epic (Still waiting for the subs I like to upload...)

I think it's my main fandom right now, weird as that is.
