Man, anime is weird. I think, out of all the ones I’ve seen, Escaflowne is the most reasonable to me. And I thought that was pretty whacked out when I first saw it. At least they didn’t have souls embedded in talking stuffed lions. All I had to deal with were a psycho-hyper catgirl and a completely ridiculous villain who’s just so EVIL! *is totally going to make a Dilandau icon* He just makes me laugh every time I see him, hehe.

Their characters are just so stereotypical. And then they toss in weird shaking eyes and strange lines and completely random crap that just pops up and I’m like, “Wtf just happened!?” Yeah... I don’t think I’m an anime person. Although Escaflowne and Final Fantasy did inspire a new take on a story idea I had. And I keep picturing my one character in katana-wielding anime style (well, one of the styles I actually like). Think I’ll make it a comic. If I can perfect my drawing and design skills. But no hyper catgirls.

Oh, and Chris and I went to see Transformers yesterday with his nephew Blake. It was actually a lot better than I expected. And it was funny too, hehe.

Yeah...I used to be really into anime myself. Now there are only a few I can really stand.
"Wolf's Rain" is excellent. "Trigun" was damn good, and I don't regret ever buying them (just wish I got the DVDs rather than the VHS). "Ergo Proxy" is great if you like science fiction, and contrary to how much I joke about it I am enjoying "Claymore", which is a fantasy.
But none of those animes have anything very over-the-top crazy things in them, asides from "Trigun" on occasion (and it's the only anime that I would really recommend watching in English. The Japanese version is just...almost guaranteed to give you a headache).

"Escaflowne" was...all right...but for some reason I couldn't really ever get into it. Probably because I'm usually into the more serious stuff. The kind that are completely absent of souls being embedded in talking stuffed lions, anyway.
