Picture 1 in [Armageddon Christchurch 2010]

This year's Armaggeddon in Christchurch actually had a queue comparable to Auckland's! It was so long it took people half and hour to get from the back of the queue to the front. They need more counters!
Day 2 is here

Picture 1 in [Ayanami is Injured! Call the Doctor!]

A bandaged Ayanami has appeared! I wonder if I should rescue her and make her fall in love with me. そんなわけないだろう。(TL: there's no way that could happen). Of course, she would stay emotionless and distant and look at you with unfocused eyes. She seems to be sleeping soundly right now. I wonder if I should wake her up.

Picture 1 in [Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood]

Square Enix and Aniplex have recently released Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood on TV and to be honest I really wondered what they would show, since the previous Fullmetal Alchemist series was already so kickass and went through the whole story already. It turns out however, that this is more of a rewrite. Frankly, I felt bored halfway through the first episode this show and suddenly wished it would end sooner, because I was getting irritated at how helpless Edward and Alphonse were against the Ice Alchemist.

Picture 1 in [That last episode]

After rewatching the entire series again, the same anime that puzzled me once heavily continues to puzzle me. Either I haven't grown up enough to understand it yet, or I simply do not relate to it. The anime had such a good start. Sad as I am to admit it, this isn't my kind of anime. Though, there was one saving grace of it which made me continue to love it so, despite longing for a nicer and less abstract ending... not Shinji strangling Asuka. Episode 26's 10 minute skit of an alternate universe continues to capture my heart.

Lonely Rei seems to have lost her way and finds herself on the Mai Room HQ Command Center. She's probably thinking it rains in here too.
