The phrase “hit or miss” is often used to describe shows which appeal only to a very specific group of viewers. In Sankarea’s case, a more appropriate term would be “hit and miss,” with just barely more hits than misses.

I just now realized that my pictures are SUPER HIGH RESOLUTION and thus better and cooler than anything else other people would post. And I realized long, long ago that a torrent of boring AX posts would come out in the days following the convention. That’s why I tried liveblogging in 2009, not blogging in 2010, and I forgot what I did for last year. But the point is: Everybody’s doing their “AX was so cool” gig and making the likes of Seinime and J159 all jealous. So it’s not really hip. I want to do something unique, something shocking, something totally extraordinary.
But whatever, here’s a regular post.
I have been reading quite a bit of manga these past few months. It’s much more accessible than anime – not just because I can read anytime on my phone, but because I don’t have to dedicate ~22 minutes of my time to anime. I can stop at any time (or so I’ve come to fool myself into believing), and I get a lot more story for the time spent. After all, when you can animate twenty pages of manga into ten to twenty minutes of anime, it’s obvious which one has more bang for the buck.
