  1. Yes ,there are those who just love assigning labels to various groups of people. Which, as you say, is often quite needless. People who work in marketing are probably the worst offenders.

    Summer Break

    Thank you. As well as watching anime I've got a couple of hobbies that I can now spend more time on I'm also involved with my local church so I keep fairly busy and don't have time to get bored. I was fortunate to have a job I enjoyed doing, I did it for 48 years so I must have liked it . But I don't miss the daily commute into central London.

    Summer Break

    One of the good things about being retired is that the whole year is effectively one long break. One of the bad things about being retired is that I no longer have the energy to do all things I'd like to do.
  4. Today I attended the funeral for a friend of mine, so I'm feeling a bit subdued this evening.
  5. I don't have a whole lot of series in both manga and anime versions, but of those I do have I think the manga of Video Girl Ai and Please Save My Earth are far better than the anime versions. Mostly this is because the anime series are far too short, the VGA anime doesn't do too bad a job as it only covers the first few chapters and ends the story at a convenient point while the PSME manga doesn't split into separate stories so neatly and the story is way too long and complex to be done coherently in less than 24 episodes. On the other hand there is one series where I have both anime and manga where I think the anime is far better than the manga, and that series is Magic Knight Rayearth where the anime of the second series especially is far better and makes more sense than the manga version.
  6. I've now finished Clannad After Story... ... and I've discovered a 3rd place where you can cry... ... in front of your TV during episodes 16, 18 and a couple after that. I've lost track of haow many times I've watched Clannad & After Story, but it gets me every time and I'll be back again because it's such a wonderful story. I've come to the conclusion that while an action series can get your pulse racing only a slice of life series can touch your heart.
  7. I found a copy on Amazon, a bargain at £198. Pass. I did find a Blu-Ray edition at £80, region A so no good to me, and anyway the days of me paying that kind of money for an anime series are long past.
  8. Is it just me or are other people confused by all these various "deres" ?
  9. Wow, now there's a Blast from the Past. I can't remember too much about it but I quite enjoyed watching it way back in the days of VHS, I've still got the tapes but I don't know if my VHS player still works.
  10. "Of all the books I have ever read, this was the greatest one." (Miaka Yuki: Fushigi Yugi.)
  11. I'm hoping that there will be a UK release of the second Violet Evergarden movie.
  12. I bought a cheap compatible unit from Amazon, no way can I afford the genuine item from the manufacturers, same goes for toner cartridges.
  13. I've just finished rewatching Clannad. More wet eye scenes in that than I remembered. Tomorrow I'll start on After Story. Handkerchiefs are at the ready.
