Still Aroundby Panadero - February 23, 2014 2:31:37 PM MST
It's going to be pretty slow here for at least the first half of the year as I slowly make my way through the Pretty Cure franchise, so I figured I'd get out a small entry for a show from last season, Beyond the Boundary. This was an interesting beast for KyoAni, in that it was probably their most explicit attempt to craft a drama in many years yet still have all the cute girls. I think the series succeeded more often than it didn't, but it definitely felt uneven and the ending left a good amount to be desired. On the whole though, it was an enjoyable watch. Here's eight characters from the series in an attempt to make up for being away for so long.
Miracle Milestone Part 2by Panadero - November 8, 2013 7:11:22 PM MST
I usually save the end-of-the-year short series and OAV rush until a little later, but I had a couple reasons to do it early this year. One, I'm going to be going down the rabbit hole that is the Pretty Cure franchise which will keep me away for a while outside of smaller updates. And two, with this update, we haven't merely passed our milestone of 2,000 characters - we've blown by it! We now have 2,042 characters from 378 series! Rather than describing every item included in this update, I'll just put them in a list, with an asterisk next to items I would recommend others watch.

Summer Season Spectacularby Panadero - October 6, 2013 4:02:47 PM MST
Today's update brings you characters from a number of series that concluded this summer. I enjoyed a lot of shows this past season, so I had a lot of fun putting this update together.
First up is KyoAni's Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, a show that was the target of a ridiculous 'debate' about its merits and right to exist. I'm well aware of KyoAni's reputation (both good and bad) as a moe-factory, so a primarily male show from them was bound to generate strong reactions, but many didn't let the show stand on its own merits. And while not a masterpiece, it was definitely a good series about four guys who restart the school swimming club and their friendship and histories together.
Next we have KINMOZA!, the terribly named title for Kiniro Mosaic, a moe slice of life show about the friendship between a Japanese girl and a British girl and what happens when the British girl comes to Japan to live there. Every episode turned me to mush, given I'm a strong adherent to the church of 'Cute Girls Doing Cute Things'. I loved it.
Next, we have Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3, the most recent Gainax show, which focuses on how a shy girl breaks out of her shell by joining an all-female airsoft club, and the trials and tribulations of her journey. Like with KyoAni, I give everything by Gainax at least a chance, and I wasn't disappointed.
Fourth is Sunday Without God, a series that took me by surprise. Telling the story in which God has abandoned the world, leading to the absence of both birth and death, our protagonist Ai is forced to leave her insular village and learn about the world and how society functions in such a state. The story intrigued me, but I didn't expect to be drawn into the world as much as I was, and Ai seems the perfect vehicle by which the audience learns about it.
Then we have WATAMOTE ~ No Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Unpopular!, in which high school freshman Tomoko navigates a life in which not only is she unattractive and unpopular, most people don't even notice her presence. Tomoko is the embodiment of every concern, worry, and adolescent feeling of angst wrapped up in a short, baggy-eyed teenage girl that anybody with a heart can't help but root for. It was hands down my favorite new series of the season.
Lastly, there are six new characters from the second season of A Certain Scientific Railgun, which after WATAMOTE was what I looked forward to the most each week. I'm a huge fan of the 'A Certain' franchise, and the first half of Railgun's second season in particular was awesome every minute.
All in all, there are now 30 more characters awaiting your votes - have at it!
