Brigadoon, Or, Marin And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Our heroine doesn't exactly have an easy time of it in this one.* Though she does get a sweet set of wheels at one point.
Marin's voiced by Kaori, and I could swear that I've heard that ahaaa before, but not in any of the shows listed there.
Also, Lolo is a heckuvalot like Guu.
Warning: May** contain traces*** of comedy, tragedy, drama, giant robots, parallel dimensions, Tokyo Tower, giant lolis, mecha-turtles, crazed inventors, psychopathic killers, Richard Nixon, magical girl transformation sequences, Apollo 11, graphic violence, Shinto shrines, the end of the world as we know it, the Osaka World Expo, cat-rabbit-elves, warped daydreams, and full-frontal nudity.
No, seriously, SPOILER!
She gets beaten up, blown up, dropped from great heights, shot, stabbed, tortured, (re-)orphaned, blinded, abandoned, her house burned to the ground, stabbed again, and, at the last, since this series does nothing by halves, killed.
Despite all which Spoiler:
there is a happy ending. ** May? Okay, okay, does. *** Large traces.
Naked Naughty Admiral Chicks 'R' Us Part Twelve: Return Of The Revenge Of The Catgirls
Last time I asked for recommendations for recent moeblob shows, and ended up watching Gurren Lagann, which was awesome.
And also Hidamari Sketch (both seasons), which was also awesome, and definitely moeblob material.
So this time I'm looking for an (awesome) action series, with lots of running about and fighting and things blowing up. And I've already seen Black Lagoon.
Oh, the title? Well, Firefrog remembers things you've typed into form fields, and when I started typing "New Recommendation Request", as soon as I hit "n" the first part of that title came up. (SFW, alas.)
Update: I was going to watch Sketchbook Full Color Apostrophes, but apparently I already did. Huh. My mind must be going, because I'd completely forgotten that.
I watched a little of Rideback and pfui. Regios I liked better. El Cazador de la Bruja wasn't bad, what I saw of it. And that reminds me, I could go back and finish Michiko to Hatchin, which was also pretty good.
Dragonball Kai... Hmm.

Oh, one more for the Moeblob pile: Bamboo Blade. It isn't, not really, but it has some blobbish moments.
Another action show, running right now, would be Canaan. It's looking a lot like another Noir, but with blood and no Reis.

This is what you get when you take a hentai dating simulation, remove most of the hentai, and then use the NO! WRONG! ending.
All the girls are insane, except the one who is crazy. The hero - such as he is - is pretty much the only sane person in sight, and he has the brains of a cheeseburger - or, I suppose, the hormones of a teenager - or he'd run for his life.
Really not recommended. If you want tsundere romangst, try the far superior Toradora or Shana. Or even Zero no Tsukaima. It's all the same character (and the same voice actress) anyway.

Pixy, something really weird is happening over at The Pond. It appears to have wandered into the Wayback Machine, my top post is now from October 3rd, 2007. The page layout is from then as well... help?

...and now it's back to being correct again. Server Burp?

Server says nup nup nup, haven't had so much as a slow query in the past three days.
Very peculiar... Hmm.
Was it showing your old Movable Type site? We had a slight glitch today while moving DNS servers. Only lasted a couple of minutes, but if you picked up the wrong IP address during that time, it would show exactly that - and stick that way for up to four hours. (Only for you - everyone else would see your new site.)

Yep, that's exactly what I was looking at. Thanks for clearing that up for me, Pixy!!!
