Happy hundredth post

Wahoo, 100th post! Now is there anything to blog about, hmm...

I began composing my work report today, cancelled my gym membership, and had a long conversation with my mother. What else... I watched Mai-Hime on TV today. It's okay but I see the production quality isn't on the same level as say Fullmetal Alchemist. Nothing sets it apart from other magic school-girl anime. I have numerous complaints: lack of memorable music, overly done fanservice, mediocre fight scenes, insubstantial character development (ok, I only watched one episode), narrow range of character expressions and finally predictable actions and outcomes.

mai-hime huh. they did a number on it though, in that they took the same characters, recasted it in an apocalpytic world and then label it as "mai-otome". Hmm....reusable characters.

There hasn't been anything good for a long time now. Suzuka was nice, but it stopped before the manga was complete =/

Alan said...

Congratulations sir! Haha

Yeah...Mai Hime wasn't really that great. I think Bao showed a few episodes of it during one of his animeathons at school, but then we never really watched more of it. It would be something I wouldn't mind watching if I had the urge to watch anime and didn't have anything else to watch, though.

100 is always cool.

I checked my own blog, I had the hundredth post sometime in August. Right now I think I'm sitting at 108 posts, shows you how much I've updated for the past half year, heh.

I agree Kevin, Mai-Hime features generic, reusable characters. What makes a character one of those is an interesting topic to contemplate ;)

8 posts/6 months? More than one per month at least hehe.

Bao said...

I thought Mai-hime was kinda cool, although I didn't continue watching after episode... 4. I did notice it was a bit generic, but a notch better than generic.

Hey Bao, you asked for some Aquarius right? I'm kinda hooked on it right now. :P

Since water is dense, I'll bring a 355 ml bottle as opposed to a 2 litre. ;)

transcendent said...

Hmm... I have no idea what Mai-Hime is. For some reason, I keep thinking of Tsukihime (not that I've actually played that particular H-game, hehe ^^;;)

Bao said...

Cool, Aquarius! :D yay. It's like Kumquat water. Too bad you can't bring more. I wonder if I'll treasure it over a few weeks or just drink it in a day..

Mai-Hime's alright, I don't think Wen will like it though, as we've all labeled it 'somewhat generic' already.
