Catching up a little more...

Subject: Noir
Okay, I got through ".hack//Roots" up through episode 7. It didn't really give me as much of a plot-point as I thought it would from the preview on the previous episode -- it's still all very mysterious and obfuscated. But character-wise, it's plugging along pretty well. Not that we learn much more than little tidbits there, either. But it's enjoyable nonetheless.

Also on the "enjoyable nonetheless" list was the raw of episode 6 of "Spider Riders". I really think that the fact that I have no idea what they're saying is contributing a lot to my enjoyment, because I can just focus on the character animation and screen direction. There's a lot of simple-yet-elegant things going on that I'm really getting a kick out of.

...But I've probably said that already. Over and over. Hrm.

I still haven't looked very hard for "Tsubasa Chronicle" episodes, but I suppose I'll start feeling curious about it again soon. I'm in no hurry. After ditching season 2 of "Meine Liebe", I'm not in a hurry to find myself wanting to ditch another Bee Train b-team effort. It's bad enough to be a studio-snob, but to really parse it down that finely is... Oh, who am I kidding?
