I’ve been making more time in my life to actually sit down and watch anime. I haven’t followed any shows regularly since, oh, Clannad, and that’s been a couple of years, so there’ve been lots to choose from.
I notice that fansubbers have once again made a technological leap forward, and that the new trend in fansub distribution involves stripping the OP and ED out of episodes and packaging them alongside the files with the actual episode contents, to save space. This works fine if you’re on Windows, using whatever media playback software they’ve decided to bless as the Correct Way And To Hell With All The Rest, but there aren’t any Mac media players that handle it yet which is something of a pain.
I’d get fussed about it, but I realize that most fansubbers are young guys, and I remember pretty well that I used to be pretty firm on the Correct Way To Do Things And To Hell With All The Rest back when I was a young guy, so I figure there’s nothing to be gained by getting fussed about it.
Anyway, that’s not horrible, nor is it inexcusable. It’s something they’ll grow out of, and in the meanwhile they’re translating lots of anime for me to leech.
What is wrong is that I’ve been watching K-On!, and my brain persists in forcing the term “Deus Ex Mugina” on me every time Mugi has to save the day using her wealth / family connections / ability to pull cakes out of the Hammerverse.
It’s not really that clever and it’s not really even a GOOD bad pun, and I really wish it would get out of my head.
