About the .hack// stuff...

...they're bastards. I love Patlabor - though knowing Patlabor I suppose expecting sense or linear storytelling from .hack// was more than a bit ridiculous.

.hack//SIGN didn't have a real ending. The "special episode" created for the express purpose of explaining what didn't make sense made it make less sense - and kind of annoyed us. A lot. The only closure we get is with Tsukasa and Subaru? mik100 and I were wondering five episodes in whether there was a "We Hate Subaru" club anywhere. Because she's just so annoying.

So we watched .hack//DUSK, hoping for some continuation. A *little*. But what do we get? Aura, Maruti, and Ginkan The Man With a Sycamore Up His Ass. Acting all dramatic and heroic. Argh. And .hack//DUSK has no ending *either*. At least nothing *I've* found.

Mind, I still *like* it. We began referring to Barumunk as Fluffy in the first episode. It's just... confusing.

*sigh* Because I'm obsessive, off I now go to find .hack//liminality. With any luck it will at least be pretty. And then I think I'll make mik100 watch Patlabor with me. But only the first one. The second one is dumb. ;)

See, Subaru annoyed me a lot until Crim filled in a little backstory on her. It's annoying, but I guess that if your body is literally deteriorating on you I guess you've got a pretty valid reason to be sad. (Also, given what Crim said, I suspect she just, y'know, doesn't fight, since she doesn't really seem to be that interested in that aspect. She's probably more interested in wandering around and finding stuff.)

What *I* found annoying about her is how everyone who wasn't insulting her was 100% devoted to her, saying how "strong" she was and all that. Well, yeah, she's not in the deepest pits of despair that she's (probably) dying very, very slowly, but it's not like she does that much for anyone else in the series . . . except kinda Tsukasa, I guess, but I thought that was less about being supportive and more about their mutual angst canceling each other out.

And speaking of the whiny one . . . you just KNOW that Tsukasa's the sort of 13-year-old girl who fills her notebook with Goth Death Poetry. You just know it.

(Wow, I'm talking a lot here. But no one else I know actually watches this show, so ah well. :)
