Going to hell in a handbasket....
Well! Things are getting interesting, angsty, and ominous in Tactics and Sukisyo. Understandable, because I believe both series are close to winding up (Tactics is approx 25 episodes long; Sukisyo is supposedly 13 episodes). And in both instances, it appears to involve the recovery of lost, painful memories.


In episode 10 (raw) of Sukisyo, Sora recovers some of his memories, then suffers some sort of major mental meltdown. And as poor Sora's shambling around in a zoned-out, zombie-like state, Sunao is up to something sinister and has a weird, almost psychotically malicious gleam in his eyes. Need... fansub... now....

And as of Tactics 22, Haruka is struggling with his reawakened Dark Side(tm)... and losing, apparently, as Haruka very nearly takes a swipe at Kantarou's unsuspecting vulnerable back with a hand gone all monstrous and talony. That close call leaves poor Haruka understandably traumatized. ^_^;;; I haven't been following the series that closely (only skimming through the episodes) but Haruka keeps having flashbacks(?) to someone saying that he (Haruka) destroyed something precious to him.


I need to sit down and watch the recent episodes more thoroughly to figure out more, but not until the quarter ends.

Ah yes, the end of yet another quarter looms, and I'm scurrying around like a rabid weasel trying to get stuff done. ::gurgle::

I just got caught up Sukisyo, plus all the episodes in the middle I was having trouble getting. I love episode 2. I'm thinking I may have to watch it again to see Yoru jump Ran in the dress. ::cackles::

Tactics I have, but I got so fustrated with the episodes in the late teens, they weren't moving in the direction I was hoping for.

::patpat:: Let me know if you need me to pick up any tankouban or CDs while I'm in NYC.

I know what you mean about Tactics. It started out with a terrific premise, but it got into a boring sort of 'oni-of-the-week' sort of rut. I don't really mind the 'enemy-of-the-week' setups, but Tactics (the anime, anyway) didn't feel like it was going anywhere, plotwise or character-wise.

As for NYC, I've been spending too much time loitering on the

As for NYC, I've been spending too much time loitering on the <a href'="http://www.sasugabooks.com">Sasuga</a> website, so I'm pretty much caught up on my active series. ::massive sweatdrop::

But you might keep an eye out for G-Defend 25 -- it's due out March 20th, but one can always hope. ^_^

I'll keep my eyes peeled. And who knows, something nifty might be found at BookOff, that's where I found that Mirage of Blaze vocal album for you.

I've seen it all, just finished... loved the ending. Don't worry I won't spoil it. I have a question though, I have searched the internet and have exhausted my resources. Do you have ANY idea where I can find a good info site on Tactics? I have a great idea for a fanfic but I need to do a teensy bit of research into the series first. In case you are wondering it's a what if tale about Haruka's memories. If you can provide me with a site or at least look some or heck, provide me with the spelling of all the characters names I would be eternally grateful and happily let you read the ficcy first. Lol sorry, I don't guess you are used to strange people coming up and asking you for stuff but I'm desperate! My e-mail is SL1011@aol.com if you want to contact me directly.

Just out of curiosity... have you seen The Count of Monte Carlo (Gansukido sp!) yet? If not... WATCH IT! Hee! Isn't it fun watching animes that won't come out in the U.S. for six whole years? *huggles anime rental shop*
