Eeek. Been awhile, hasn’t it?

I’ve watched the first four episodes of the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. This thing is, in a word, amazing. I’ll post a full-scale review later on; suffice to say that it’s a wonderful, moving, exciting series. Those episodes just came out on DVD; if anime catches your eye at all, check out Eva.

I also bought and watched a collection of direct-to-video episodes set in the Ranma 1/2 universe. Ranma 1/2 is a screwball romantic comedy about…oh, just check out Dar-Long Chang’s tribute. I couldn’t put it any better myself.

I also got the first DVD of Gundam Wing, and watched the first two episodes. Good, rousing action stuff with a very serious undercurrent. Its strongest facet is its attention to political machinations; nearly everyone has some sort of agenda. Impressive.

I also wrote up a website for Saalon, called “Points of View.” It’ll be a general review site, reviewing…pretty much anything fictional. Books, movies, TV shows; you name it. Saalon’s also working on a terrific column series. Should be interesting.
