I'm taking a mild liking to the new Full Metal Panic series. It isn't really fun, like Fumoffu was, but it's much more engaging on an episode-by-episode basis. The last episode actually failed to make me hate Tessa, which is fairly unprecedented. It's not great television or anything, but it doesn't suck, which is more than I'll say for the last year or so's worth of television anime.

Touch continues to charm. The first season ended differently from how I recall the first movie ending, but I'm thinking that the TV version is better. Less sentimental and overwrought. I was thinking that they don't make decent sports anime any more, but then it occurred to me that I hadn't even paid attention to shounen football-anime Eyeshield 21. Should I?
