Busy weekend, slow posts

I'm not slowing down on my posts, I'm just catching up on work that I've procrastinated too much on and piled up. I have midterms coming up next week as well, which are pretty bleh. I was thinking of making some entries earlier today, but never got around to it.

Been spending most of my free time catching up on my backlog. I actually managed to finish The Tatami Galaxy in 1 sitting yesterday. I have to say, it was really enjoyable. Much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. I was expecting to watch maybe 3 episodes and put it down for a bit to pick at it slowly until the end, but I just kept on watching the next episode until I was at the end. Not that this is my first time marathoning a series from start to end, I did the same thing many times before, but it's just been a while since I've been able to lay back for hours on watching something from start to finish like that.

I may do a review on it next blog post, but I don't know how many of you guys have seen it or not.

Also, Panty and Stocking is pretty okay. I've been following the releases weekly and such, but I feel sometimes it's just throwing cheap jokes without really trying. I do like it for its Saturday Morning Cartoon charm though, and it tries to be unique. The first part of Episode 3 is a nice example of what I'm talking about. It was really cliche, with the whole "team members having an argument and thinking they can go solo" thing. It's been done before hundreds of times, but I thought it was still nice to see, since every Saturday morning super hero show that has a team needs something like that, especially if they're family.

Ore no Imouto was pretty nice this week as well, with an interesting plot twist. Not much I feel like saying about it at this point though. Ika Musume's lighthearted humor was pretty awesome this week, one of the best episodes thus far. I know that doesn't say much, considering the small episode count, but hey.

I'll catch up on some missed entries tomorrow (or today? It's 3 AM). I see some interesting ones right now on my blog feed, but if I start reading now, I'll just keep on.

Haven't seen any of the new anime.
It makes me feel out of the loop. :(

That's good to hear. It's nice that you're catching up on your backlog.

Panty and Stocking seems to be getting less interesting to me as well.

Working on backlogs is always good.
I haven't bothered giving Panty & Stocking a viewing yet, but I've heard mixed things.
