Late in a season it's hard to think of new things about a show that haven't already occurred to you before. Often times I get the same impression from the latest episode as I already have numerous times from earlier ones.

For me, I have maybe one or two titles that consistently maintained my interest throughout the season, while the remainder I choose to stick with didn't meet whatever expectations I had of them early in their run. Been a recurring trends for years since I started actively watching more recent titles.

Let me ask a question: what do you use for browsers, Stretch and Becca? The problems I've been having to get on here are in Firefox and Internet Explorer. Chrome doesn't seem to have issues loading pages, though image loading is still a problem.

Chrome, Firefox, Safari. At the airbnb we're staying at random stuff doesn't load, but that's true on literally every site on the 'net, because it's on crappy AT&T DSL.

Linode is wanting to update my old Xen instances to KVM, so I'm going to let them do that now. (Probably 20 minutes down time for this.) When that completes I'm going to have them move the VMs to a different datacenter, which will mean new IPs and new routing, which, if this is indeed a routing issue, and it sure looks like, one, may resolve the problem.

The data center move will be longer down time due to DNS propagation. It shouldn't be more than a few hours, but it could be as long as a day or so.

I have watched 21 new Fall shows, and about one third were dropped after one episode and I would guess about another third will be dropped before they reach their final episodes and the final third are good enough for me to watch to the end. That's actually not bad, since early on I wondered if there would be any good shows this season!

Well, except for One Punch Man, I think Fall 2015 was yet another pretty mediocre season for anime. In the end I only watched four shows (not counting shorts) to their conclusion: One Punch Man, Ace of the Diamond (which has been running for something like two years now), The Perfect Insider (which was far from perfect), and YuruYuri San Hai (or, more accurately, I will watch this one to the end when the fansubs finally arrive).

Thanks for the fix. The only other modification I can think of is that we have we have three 'theme' keywords--Maid Theme, Idol Theme and Otaku Theme. Otaku is in 'Story Elements and Locations' while the other two are in 'Keywords'. I would think that all three ought to be in the same category, but I'm not sure which is most appropriate.

A theme engine is used for layout and I could push those up somewhere if you wanted to give a go, but there's no getting past the fact that the way it works is positively ancient.

For years I've been using Tokyo Tokoshan as my main source of fansub downloads, but recently my favorite source, Deadfish, stopped placing it's work there. I finally went searching and found another website, Anime Tosho Beta, which has everything I want--and more. It seems to carry both Deadfish and Baked Fish, and some minor lines as well. I need mp4 fansubs, because I have a problem with my software which keeps me from converting MKV fansubs into DVD mode. I'm downloading a ton of episodes, some first episodes of Fall 2016 stuff, and some episodes that I was missing from anime of previous seasons, For example, I found the remainder of Sakamoto desu there.

Whereas during the Summer season I only watched three series to their conclusions, during the Fall one there's looking to be something like twenty ones worth watching. I may have to save some for another mediocre season in the future, because the season is already hallway over and I'm barely beyond week two.

Happy New Year! On ANN's poll of the best anime of 2016, I voted for Konosuba, which came in 8th, Grimgar, which came in 16th, and planetarian and Sekkou Boys, which were way, way down the list. I forget what my fifth choice was.

Haven't said this in a while, but this may be one of the more underwhelming anime seasons in terms of offerings that I've come across in a while. Have a few titles of interest, but not as large as what has gotten my attention from prior seasons in the past 3-4 years.

Ah, a flood of mp4 fansubs arrived all at once on Sunday. I probably should consider VLC anyhow. If this season is underwhelming, I won't mind too much since I am still watching week 9 of the fall season, and wouldn't mind a chance to catch up.

My experience has been that if watching an anime reaches the point where it feels more like an ordeal than a source of enjoyment, it's time to stop.

With my work schedule hectic as it is during the week, I often get a 1-2 day break from watching the series hence preventing me from getting too taxed from seeing the show for as long as it is.

I have noticed something: When I type 'ID-0' into 'Search Titles' and perform the search, you would think that ID-0 would be the first title to appear, since it is an exact match. But instead I get plenty of other titles, but not ID-0. This may be because (if I remember correctly) this page was originally a duplicate of Renai Boukun which I converted into a page for ID-0.

Ah yeah, it was splitting on the hyphen and that was resulting in every title matching and I had no special case to make exact matches bubble to the top. I've fixed the latter part. While all titles now match, ID-0 is also now the first result.

Perhaps a good Keyword would be 'Virtual Reality' for shows which take place entirely or in part there. 'Otaku Theme' is usually appropriate but not all shows that fall into that category involve VR. 'Video Game Inspired', as I understand it, means anime which were originally video games then became TV/internet shows.
