[spoiler]Although the outcome here is obvious (Asuna wakes up, the Code shuts, and the Ala Rubra PWNs the Lifemaker), there's still quite a bit of aftermath involved (and the story isn't done yet, seeing as Negi still hasn't found Nagi or Arika). That's going to be more interesting to read than the fights IMO.



On the bright side, Chao's plan might come to fruition anyway.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]
Rakan: *Graze Graze*

Chisame - Using the power of friendship now?

Eva - Why the stop casting while meleeing? Beat up three Fates at once while casting Eternal Glacier.

So the Code of the Lifemaker can duplicate everything it ever contained...well for a world creation spell thats to be expected. Write: Dragon.

The whole class is now on site. Maximum Love Power?
[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Rakan : "Deal with the dragon." "Don't wanna! Too big!" lol
Chisame : I will hack the barrier, WITH LOVE!
Eva : Mages are nothing more than high-powered artillery indeed. She's yet to cast a single spell (mid-incantation though) and everyone took attention. rofl
Headmaster : Maybe its the shape of the head, getting really strong Nurarihyon vibes there.
The girls : Its at 180% power, looks like the love is coming on strong heh.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]The research break produced a result: Akamatsu decided Chachamaru should wear a suit. For maximal robot fetish power.

Other than that, everything else that was said already. Badass.[/spoiler]

This is definitely picking up after the last few chapters. Well, it started to pick up at the end of 330 already.


In other words, thanks to friends' influence I am watching Madoka. Up to ep 8 now.
This series is quite awesome. The hype  is not misplaced at all. Also, kinda depressing, and I didn't even reach the supposedly saddest part yet.

Certainly a possibility, considering previous encounters...

[spoiler]Definitely, granted, Chao's had more coverage than that. Though I was talking about the fashion and how Akamatsu's wife apparently models many of the outfits he draws

Magitech swimsuit based power armor with reinforced(and probably weaponized) lab coat?

And... done with Madoka. I am pretty sure I cannot say anything that was not said already, but here is my input anyway:

I heard about the ending's general nature beforehand, and I was worried it might have been a cheap cop-out. It wasn't. It so wasn't.

This is a really great show. Probably makes it into my personal top five.

The ending was a big worry in the audience at the time, since it was so fucked up resolving it without a copout seemed rather unlikely. They did rather well.

Cubey personal top 5. HARD MODE - only one Gainax title allowed.

5. Full Metal Panic! (With Fumoffu and Second Raid)
4. Azumanga Daioh
3. Fullmetal Alchemist - new and old series. Cheating, I know.
2. Gurren Lagann
1. Haruhi Suzumiya (both seasons and the movie, despite the dreaded Endless Eight)

Kinda mainstream but these series are popular for a good reason. I'd put Madoka on either nr 3 or 4 of my new list, with everything below that dropping one position.

Well, there are some pretty obvious references to Eureka Seven, Cybuster, Gurren Lagann (or anything with big drills, really - there's been a few other mecha like that), funnels and...
Pumpkin? What? How. Why pumpkin? /Nostalgia Critic

EDIT: And Gundam Virtue. So obvious, how did I miss that one? Probably because I didn't see Gundam 00, that's why.

When you've seen enough anime to recognise VAs, it can be weird.

For instance, there are at least three guys from Gundam 00 in this clip.
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

But it's Ribbons who should have green hair, not Setsuna!

Seriously though, the Pokemon anime has so many characters, you can find almost every seiyuu in it. Sure, most of them have only cameo appearances, but still.
