...Rental Magic, while interesting and moderately entertaining, did not grab me. Kimikiss--Pure Rouge was a romance story and it could have been better, but could have been worse. I don't think either series was bad, but I'm glad I saw them as fansubs and didn't pay anything for them, because I would have felt cheated if I had.
Rental Magic did some stupid things with the episode order early in the series, but they finally settled down and advanced the story in linear fashion.
Spice and Wolf is pretty good, though. I look forward to each new episode. The world it's set in would make a great setting for a D&D campaign....
I've given up trying to watch Magical Fairy Persia. The stories are too simplistic and the animation style mired too firmly in the 1980s--it is uninteresting to the adult viewer, unlike stories such as Akazukin Chacha.
Anyway, the current viewing list is getting really sparse; I'm down to two eps of Emily and a handful of eps of Wolf and Spice. Right now I have Chocotto Sister and True Tears in their entirety downloading right now, along with the biggest batch torrent I've ever ganked: the entire Kimagure Orange Road TV series. Yeesh.
I have some other series which I could start watching, too; so it's not like I'm going to have to sit down with the stack of videotapes.
Well, tomorrow promises to be a long day. I suppose I should hit the sack soon....
