Oh, if you have an iDevice, you should check out the "Kotoba" app, it's a really nice, free Japanese-English dictionary that can handle conjugations.
This is one of the meaner sentences I've encountered in Rozen Maiden (talking about mail-order goods)
Temoto ni todoite hitotoori warattara kigen girigiri ni henpin shite COOLING OFF sunno.
I get that the general gist is something along the lines of "if you aren't satisfied, you don't have to pay, so I send it back just before the deadline. But I still don't get quite how you get there. I'm assuming hitotoori warau is some kind of idiomatic expression for being satisfied and the second line is supposed to modify the first but it still doesn't make much sense to me. And what does "sunno" mean, anyways? I hear it a lot, but it isn't in my dictionary. The best guess I can think of is that it's short for "desu no".

Baccano! is great. I bought it on DVD from HMV a while back. Cover made it look good. I pretty much marathoned that as well. The way the story was told was really different, and it was enjoyable seeing how everything connected up in the end.
I'm not so sure how I felt about FLCL. It was alright. I don't think I really understood what was going on with the plot near the end unfortunately. The animation was great. It was enjoyable most of the time I think. Some of the crazier stuff wasn't very entertaining to me though, and I didn't find it overall as funny as I think other people do. I liked that the soundtrack was pretty much all rock music though, that was a cool change.
Then again, could have just been the timing. I don't think I was particularly into it when I was watching it, and there wasn't much of a desire to watch through it, so it's understandable that I didn't come away with a great impression. I might go back and rewatch
Monday morning I was at a friend's house. Rewatched Tsuritama (first 10 episodes, last one is out tomorrow), while my friend watched it for the first time. He enjoyed it very much.
Another friend who's actually into anime a lot watched Eureka Seven on my recommendation. He thought it was too "lovey dovey". Which would be okay to say if Ano Natsu de Matteru wasn't his favourite show. How can you even criticise something of being too romantic if your favourite show is that confession-fest?
I'm done the first 8 episodes of Steins;Gate. I'm starting to really get into it now that I'm less confused about what's actually going on, and it's starting to have a clearer direction. Interested to see how everything will end up. Hopefully it'll be fast paced enough that a whole load of shit will happen and it'll develop to great heights, but that rarely happens. But people like this show a lot (along with the second friend I mentioned, who also loves this show), so it'll definitely be good, no matter how it goes.
