Sword Art Online (anime):
Season 1 was pretty good! I really enjoyed the mechanics of the universe. The stories were short, and a lot happened in each episode. Almost every episode felt like it had ended too soon, and I always wanted more. Season 2 is total shit. It turned a marvelous gaming-life analogy into a story of quasi incest and irrelevance.
Total Eclipse (anime):
It started off pretty strong. I liked the fact that the world was so desparate and bleak– within the first few episodes, so many characters had been brutally offed by aliens! Quite graphically, might I add. But then, the series started getting a whole lot less serious for some reason– to the point where it feels like it’s just another male mecha pilot protagonist with a harem vying for his affections. Been there, done that. Yawn.
The whole Shinobi Alliance filler season is garbage. That’s all I can say. The manga continues to be interesting and innovative here and there though.
Suits (American Television Series):
I just finished watching season 2, and it was better than season 1! Honestly though, I can’t imagine working in such a hostile environment. That, and Mike is, in my opinion, a total whiny indecisive douchebag.
Game of Thrones
I have, as of yet, never seen an episode or read a book of Game of Thrones. [CM] and I will be starting on that this weekend, so we’ll see how that goes.
