    1) Erased is AWESOME and heartbreaking all at the same time.
    2) Inuyasha is ultimately pointless, as nobody has much of a character arc and the plot ends up exactly where it telegraphed it would be: happy ending with the Destined Pairs ending up as paired. I would go back in time and recommend myself something else.
    3) I recommend Psycho Pass, Food Wars (Shokugeki no Soma) (ridiculous but fun in much the same way Fairy Tail is), Sweetness and Lightning, Natsume’s Book of Friends (Crunchyroll has them loaded weird, the last season is separate from the other three, probably because of import reasons).
    4) The proper Japanese for that version of “magician” is “mahoutsukai.” The “tsu” tends to be slurred over in most words, because the Japanese can be lazy about enunciation, too. /pedant
    5) I find it pretty easy to ignore Japanese fanservice because most of it so ridiculously over-the-top, cartoonish boobage with totally unreal anatomy. At least the Japanese are pretty equal-opportunity with ridiculously pretty bishounen. Also, the show Kill la Kill is about 90% ridiculous fanservice, but it’s very much aware of itself and the ridiculousness, so I found it funny rather than offensive.

    I’ve been meaning to check out Fairy Tale. It’s extremely popular so…
    If you like fights with good meaning behind them, I highly recommend Rurouni Kenshin about a former assassin from the Bakumatsu who becomes a wandering samurai who protects the people of Japan with a vow to never take another life.

      Hey, Kat,

      You might have given it a shot by now, but as a newcomer to the FT series, um, hang in there until you get into Moon Drip. I say this because the intro phase was a little long for me and I lost patience for a bit. Until the Moon Drip incident. Then I sort of burned through the entire first season and have started season two. Ha.

      I hold little faith in Lucy at this point, but I’m convinced no one’s writing anything that allows her to use the strength she does possess.

        I watched the first several episodes with my daughter and enjoyed them. I definitely intend to watch more. My daughter meanwhile has finished everything on Netflix and is ready for more. 😉

What do you think?
