Some random comments

First, when I first joined BoxBT (back before the palace coup), the unposted backlog tended to run about 30. After it became BakaBT, there seemed to be a rising tide of apathy on the part of the mods and the backlog rose and rose, finally peaking about 170.

But I have to give credit where it's due: about four months ago someone decided to make a concerted effort to work the backlog down. And today, for the first time in a long, long time, it was under 120. Good job! Keep it up!

Second, Pete? Girls und Panzer? Mouretsu Pirates? Puella Magi Madoka Magica?

UPDATE: Pete says "Any Ludicrous Concept Is Better With Girls (In Bikinis)”. That would be Yuushibu.


I wouldn't say that Asobi ni Iku Yo is one of the best shows of the last few years. As harem shows go, it's better than average. (Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou is also better than average.) But the average is really lousy, so being better than average doesn't mean being excellent. And Yuushibu is better than average for harem shows. But they're all second rate.

I think Puella Magi Madoka Magica was excellent.

(Speaking of Yuushibu, I'm really rather surprised that we haven't seen a rip of the last BD yet. I guess beggars can't be choosers.)
