I know I post a lot, but I just have to talk about this. They liscenced To Heart! This is so great! It's a good romantic comedy with much less "look, we're wacky" and much more melancholy. You know what I like in an anime? Melancholy. Why a sad atmosphere always gets me is a mystery.
Today I finished watching Memories, and I really like it. The animation is evocative for those who prize animation quality. I like the storylines- they are mostly harder sci fi, trading more on what if than 'look, there are space ships, and things explode'. Also, the first story has an appealing psychological spin that appeals, and the last one reminds me of the never ending war that Bush has stuck us in.
