And this brings me to Sousei no Aquarion. We just watched the last episode and we liked it a lot. We started watching it back when it started in April as part of our "watch everything new that we can get our hands on" policy, and it was actually pretty brain-hurty and weird and stuff. Especially the "gattai" scenes. I would classify those as the dirt on this ice cream. And the scenes with Tsugumi and her heart, but that's mostly because I don't like seeing body parts that I'm not supposed to be able to see. And there's a lot of innuendo involved with piloting the Vectors, which probably goes with the gattai scenes.
When we started running out of space, we thought Aquarion would probably be one of the serieses that we dropped, but for some reason we just couldn't. I think it's Apollo, because he's an awesome character. Also, a lot of the episodes seem to have good morals to them, and we're suckers for that kind of thing. A while before we got to the second opening sequence, it stopped being a show that we watched because we felt some weird obligation to it (though we enjoyed it when we finally did buckle down and watch it), and started being one we actually looked forward to. It was one of those things where you don't remember how much you like it until you're actually watching it. And the cosplay episode is awesome--I think all cosplayers should see it.
And I really feel like I'm not doing a good job plugging this show... and suddenly the blanket next to me moved. So that's where Mimsy was.
If this show were to come out on DVD, I think I would buy it... if we had the money. It would be fun to do a cosplay group. Athena and I would be Kurt and Chloe, which means we get to be Romi Park characters! Yay! Unless no one wanted to be Sirius or Sylvia, and then we'd be them.
There was a guy! at the Meet the Guests Reception at AX dressed as Apollo and I totally wanted to tell him I liked his costume but I never got the chance. So if anybody's reading this who knows him (or is him), let him know there are some crazy girls who liked his costume.
