Majoka is how I refer to pink hair. Homer is also how I refer to black hair.

Oh, and because I didn't mention it before, I'm onto episode five of Steins;Gate. It's good so far, though confusing with all the mystery and whatnot.

    Well, /i/ thought it was a good idea.

Wow, I can't even imagine trying to read a light novel in Japanese right now. I'm having a hard enough time trying to read the Japanese Rozen Maiden volume I got a while back because it was the only Japanese manga I could find for a reasonable price. Mainly because I have to keep looking up words and have trouble wrapping my brain around the occasional oddly constructed sentence.

I think "yatte kita", assuming I'm correct in thinking it's the -te form of yaru followed by the -ta form of kuru, in that context means "did up until now" or rather "attended up until now" or just "have been attending".

My avatar's Kyubey is stronger :3

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)

手元に届いて
ひと通り笑ったら
期限ギリギリに返品して
クーリングオフすんの

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".

I really need to go back and reread the early volumes of berserk to scan for any golden reaction image material I might have missed.

Also, a couple pages:

I watched Baccano! with my sister, and both of us enjoyed it very much. It was a bit hard to get into at first, but once we started marathoning and got past the third episode, we couldn't stop. The non-linear storytelling made it incredibly fun to watch. We re-watched FLCL too, and this time around I made it a point to appreciate the quality of the animation. It really is fantastic. Also, I pick up on more little things every time I watch it. I finished Spice and Wolf, and now I'm watching Spice and Wolf II. The tone of the second series is rather different so far, but I enjoy both. The focus on economics makes me very happy. Once I finish this, I'll probably start watching Fate/Zero.

I saw someone somewhere else saying they were going to watch Fate/Zero again, before the last episode airs. I might look it up eventually.

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.
Spoiler
We also watched the first 3 and a half episodes of Polar Bear's Café. He enjoyed that too.

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.

I also just finished watching Baccano about a week ago, and loved it. So many crazy people doing crazy things that all get tangled up in one big ball of craziness.
