Subject: Noir
Well, no release of "Tsubasa" 20 yet this morning, which is kind of sad, seeing as I really liked my relaxed-Sunday-morning routine. There's a raw on the Saiyaman site, but it launched a rather malicious pop-under that got past my blockers, so I don't recommend it if you don't really want it. It's not on l33t yet, which means a decent raw probably hasn't been released yet, which would explain why there's not sub yet.

Oh well. Tomorrow's a holiday, so maybe I can postpone my "ritual" until then.

Last night I was up late watching discs 2 & 3 of "MADLAX". I really needed a pick-me-up, and even though I've seen this dang show over and over again, it delivered!

Tonight I'm hoping to only watch half of "Noir", and watch the other half tomorrow (I'm extending my holiday through Tuesday as well), and see if I can't try and put some sanity back into my relationship with that show.

And if I stash that bottle of tequila I've got somewhere inconvenient, I might just have a chance. Heh.

UPDATE: Spoke too soon!

Not relevant to your entry, but so that you could see it right away, I thought I'd tell you that the director to the new IGPX TV series won't be Mashimo, like the shorts, but rather Mitsuru Hongo. Honestly, the new series doesn't look to appealing to me, so I'll probably pass.

Thanks. I found out that info earlier. The Production I.G. English site has an interview with Hongo, and there's no mention at all about the pilot or Mashimo's involvement. Which is a shame, because I obviously want to know more about it.

It's not particularly appealling to me either. I've got plenty of other things to do. I might make an effort to DVR the beginning of it just in case Time Warner actually captures that data, but otherwise, it doesn't really matter to me.

Oh, and I'll comment on "Tsubasa" 20 sometime tomorrow: A great episode, but I'm in the midst of a "Noir" funk right now and can't comment on much of anything outside of that context right now...
