It's All Over! sad

House is finished until later this year; Mythbusters appears to be hiated.  Ashes to Ashes is done until 2010.  Dr Who and Torchwood aren't even running regular seasons this year.

All I have left is the special episode of K-On! and then I'm all out of stuffs to watch and will have to look for new stuffs.

Oh, I do have Stardust on DVD.  There's that.

I would have happily watched 26 episodes of K-On! even though they clearly didn't have 26 episodes worth of material.  But still, it's best to go out on a high note rather than wear out your welcome.  Crom knows we don't need any more mediocre anime.

Oh, and suggestions are actually welcome here. wink   If you know of a good moeblob show I might have missed, feel free to comment.  Or any really good recent anime; one of my favourite series of recent years was Black Lagoon, a show not exactly renowned for its moeitude.

An aside: Just to make it clear, I have a ton of unwatched DVDs and fansubs, not to mention the hundreds of old VHS tapes and laserdisks.  I just don't have the energy.  In fact, I'm feeling awfully Yui-ish right now.

Speaking of our chocolate curry hotpot girl, the K-On! special was a really nice way to close out the series.  There'll be another special along with the DVD release, but apparently they've pretty much caught up with the manga, so that's all for now.

I just went and read the article on moeblobs, and there is one in Macademi Wasshoi. Suzuho, the "cute mute" cousin, when her hair is brown and tied up in the pony tail.

Of course, Suzuka, her alter ego, is rough talking and profane, so that rather dilutes the effect. And Suzuho tends to remove her hair ribbon when she wants to cuss someone out. At least once she starts cussing before she's begun the transformation. (That was at the end of ep 12.)

I don't think Tanarot counts as a moeblob.

On the other hand, I think Falche does count as one. (Falche is my favorite character.)

3 I'm supposed to be a moefag, and I'm coming up empty. Maybe true tears (haven't seen it)? The last moeblob show I watched was ef ~memories~, long time ago. Toradora was just a romcom. I'm running Otogi Juushi Akazukin (Fairy Musketeers), but jury is still out on that. Are you done with all the old things like Hidamari (x365), Sketchbook, et. al.? Nogizaka Haruka?

5 Petit Eva/Evangelion @ School.  EVERYBODY is a moeblob.  Even Gendo. 

I'll second Hidamari Sketch/x365 and Sketchbook, by the way.  Particularly Sketchbook.

6 Pass on anything Eva.  Allergies.

I'll take a look at *sketch* though.  There's another one like that starting this season as well: GA Fine Arts Department Art Design Class.  Definitely moeblob material.

I have watched half of Macademi Wasshoi.  I liked it okay, but it didn't really grab me.  Suzuho is definitely moeblob, though.

And my next computer (planning to get a small Windows development server) will almost certainly be called Tanarotte, since she seems to be the only good candidate for petite anime schoolgirl goddess so far this year.  Bending the definition just a little...  (My three current computers are Haruhi, Yurie, and Nagi.  I also have two diminutive fileservers called Pepper and Salt. wink )

7 I understand about the Evallergies, believe me.  In its defense, I will say that Petit Eva has nothing to do with the Eva you've seen in the past.  :-)

8 I hear tell there are moeblobs in Higurashi. Haven't seen it, myself, so I couldn't say for sure... (heh)

10 Although I didn't complete either of original Hidamari, x365, or Sketchbook, I think I liked Hidamari better than others. Sketchbook has a lot of elaborate humour and iyashikei elements melded together, and looks like a very solid production, but Hidamari has Yoshinoya, Yuno, Miyako, etc. Sketchbook simply has no answer to Yuno's power. Sora is not as cute, not as nice and shiny.

11 I've found that while I only watch one or two episodes at a time, I keep coming back to Hidamari.  My weakness is for Sae, though, more than Yuno. wink
