Wednesday is the new Thursday.

Subject: Noir
Ayu wins this week. 24 down, 2 more to go.

And my heart is breaking

A poster on the AnimeSuki forum said that this latest episode was probably both the funniest and the saddest of all of them. It's a very good observation. There have been a couple of significant deaths in these last few, and they were handled so poetically, so touchingly, well... I haven't seen anything quite like it in an anime series. But it's contrasted with such an insane, surreal mayhem that tries so hard to disguise itself as reality, but it's turned up on it's head and spun around in a dozen directions. With maddening, unfathomable clues as to what actually is real. But you just know, at the end, it'll either be "Oh, that's what that meant!". Or, just one giant WTF moment. I dread the latter.

But at any rate, this show rivals Noir now.

I'm serious!

(Of course, that just may mean that I haven't done a Noir marathon in a while so I need to refresh my memory. Hmmm...)
