I think it's been a good 5-6 years since I've seen any anime that could get me fangirly excited about it. (I think the most recent anime I really loved was Kimi No Todoke, but shoujo is a different sort of excitement for me. For one thing, there's usually not a whole lot of world building/new mythology to get into.)

I just watched the first 8 eps of Attack On Titan, and I am IN LOVE.

You know what's always a good sign? When the male and female versions of a uniform ARE EXACTLY THE SAME.

It also helps that the animation is insanely good. Definitely planning on getting the blurays for this.

In conclusion, Elementary finale still my favorite finale this season.

YES. Natalie Dormer has just been cast as Irene Adler.

(Flashback or present day not confirmed, but they wouldn't REALLY fridge Irene, right?)

I'm pretty sure it's the actress and not the writing, but Clara is much much more palatable than Amy. To be sure, I'm 110% positive that Moffat will no doubt destroy any positive feeling I have for her, but at the moment, I'm enjoying Clara as the companion.

However, it's only the second episode (at least of this incarnation of Clara), and we already know more about her backstory than we ever did of Amy's.

RTD era companions still are much much more fleshed out and human than Moffat's but it's progress, and I'm glad I don't have to actively hate on what used to be my favorite show.

I've been thinking of archiving my fic on somewhere other than LJ in case I ever do permanently leave...Can anyone hook me up with an invite to Archive of Our Own (I have no idea if this is a reasonable request or not; is it difficult to get in)? I'd rather not post to the pit.

Thanks!

Partial thoughts on Episode 6 of Legend of Korra here: http://ontd-lok.livejournal.com/38595.html?style=mine#comments

In general, probably my favorite episode of this season. Things just got EPIC.

Also, note to self; Do not wander into Korra fandom ever again. Though I suppose I should have known better.

Well, now that I've got the shipping stuff out of the way, let me jot down the other things about this show I loved...

I preface this with the fact that when the show was announced I was both happy and extremely skeptical they could make anything to match the brilliance of the original.

I'm stressed out for RL stuff, so I'm ranting a little here.

OMG, is fandom finally calling out Moffat for his bullshit? http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/67538253.html?page=1#comments

He completely ruined Doctor Who, which was my once favorite show, so yeah, I'm feeling a little vindication here.
