So I finished season one of True Blood and I decided to make a list of what I felt was good and bad about it.

Good - Bill. He feels a bit... vanilla in the books (keep in mind I'm still in the midst of the 3rd book), but I feel he comes off a lot better in the series. Or maybe I was just won over by the golf.
Bad - Tara and all her drama. I really hope she comes off better next season because I don't know how much more of that I can take.
Good - Good expansion of existing side characters. Specifically Lafayette and Terry Bellfleur.
Middle - Jessica. I was pretty much expecting to hate her guts based on what I knew about how she came about, but I actually kind of like what little we saw of her. I'll have to wait and see what's in store for her next season.
Middle - Jason's expansion. One the one hand I like some of what they did with him, but on the other I really don't like some of what they did with him. He is still mighty pretty though.
Good - Theme song. It's awesome.
Bad - The part in the opening credits with the dead fox creeps me straight the fuck out.
Good - Eric.
Bad - Giving Eric's one real moment to Bill.
Awesome - Pam. Are there people who don't like Pam? If so, what's their damage?

I feel pretty positive about it over all though. Now on to season two...

So like... I'm getting back into anime again... I blame it solely on the fact that there are quite a few interesting series this season. My load won't nearly be as large as it once was I'm going for roughly five series (six this season if I end up liking all the ones I'm gonna try) and then maybe one or two older series depending on if they're streaming on a legit service.

So for this season I'm going for...

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - I solely blame my reinterest in anime-watching on this series. Thank goodness someone is streaming it though or I probably would have drug my feet on watching it. After seeing the first episode I have to give it a thumbs up. Maybe it's just because I've been so long without seeing the first series or been so long without seeing anything... I was totally pleased.

Eden of the East - Kenji Kamiyama + Production I.G. + Chika Umino + Pantless Male Lead = I can't resist. You had me at Pantless Male Lead. (Can he dethrone Princess Tutu's Mythos as the Pantless Wonder?) Everything I've heard has been awesome. The lack of pants is just a bonus.

Guin Saga - My inner fantasy nerd took notice of the series, but I wasn't expecting much based on what little digging I did. I've heard some good things so I'll go for it.

Basquash! - What's that you say? Mecha basketball? And I still haven't heard anything negative?

Ristorante Paradiso - A fun romance series is mandatory for my new anime watching schedule.

La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~ - What can I say? I enjoyed the first season and it's conveniently streaming on crunchyroll. I am weak. Also it's apparently only two episodes long so... I really can't resist.

As for the older series... I'm in a toss up between finally getting around to Kaleido Star and Natsume Yuujin-Chou. I might break down and go for both if I end up not liking one of the series I'm gonna try out.
