Rant

I'm not feeling ranty about anything; this is just my only Thoma icon

We finished watching Fantastic Children at Anime Club tonight! Overall, I think it got a good reaction. The highlight of my evening was when a girl threw her arms up in the air and said "Yes!" when the episode title The Truth About Thoma came up. XD

I was surprised by the amount of giggling during these episodes though; probably because Fantastic Children has a lot of those long, drawn out dramatic moments that seem funny when you're watching something in a group. There was a scene in episode 24 that I found hilarious tonight, whereas other times I was usually too shocked or crying my eyes out to laugh at it. XD

But everyone was dead silent during the first half of episode 26. That was great. I also liked seeing John, Dan, and Kevin going "OMG!!" over the spoilery back cover of the sixth DVD before we started the meeting. XD Actually...I think this is the first time I've seen people look so eager to find out what happens next... Like for the past year, we've been showing mostly action/comedy shows, and I just think it was nice to have a plot-heavy anime for a change. For the people that came, the enthusiasm was high.

OH YEAH. I totally suggested putting Princess Tutu on the ballot for the next anime we're watching. XD Since Fantastic Children went so well for the Monday Meetings, I think it might actually have a chance of winning.
