I've been mainlining anime in recent weeks, to the abandonment of all else except work and sleep. I have trouble doing things by halves, so if I'm interested in something, then I'm REALLY interested in it.
However Kuroshitsuji caused brain breakage to the point that I'm paddling to the surface, coming up for air, and saying, "Oh THERE is the world. What's it been up to?"
I don't know why it took me this long, but I have finally discovered Anime. I guess I was put off by the big eyes and tiny noses, I figured it was all either Sailor Moon or tentacle hentai.
I'm going to do a picspam review of everything I've been watching recently (including Yami no Matsuei, Loveless, 07 Ghost, and Death Note), but at present I'm continually watching Bleach until my eyes bleed...
I think one of the more charming differences between the RTD era and The Eleventh Hour is how "hardcore fans" are treated. RTD openly sneered at fans in interviews; in the show, fan characters were stereotypical social outcasts and mostly came to sticky ends.
