In fourteen hundred ninety-two, I got a day off every October.

Granted, I spent most of the day making two LP videos, then posting the wrong link for one of them. Oops. I'm hoping it turns into a humorous situation and not an embarrassment.

I did the food shopping, though. I forgot to get new mayonnaise, so the old jar will have to last another week, but I remembered sour cream.

Favorite? I'm hard pressed to think of a mech series I liked. The ones I cared at all about are series like Fullmetal Panic, where they didn't do very much with the mechs, and I much prefer Fumoffu, where they dispense with the mechs entirely and go back to Sousuke being a military nut in an otherwise normal high school setting. Evangelion might count, although the Evangelions aren't really mechanical. And then there's Magic Knight Rayearth, where the mechs weren't really part of the show at all, and never did anything meaningful except be mechs. I found Big O to be excessively philosophical and confusing. Really, what in the world can you do with a mech series other than mech combat? (And don't get me started on Gundam Wing. Maybe the other Gundam series were okay, but I don't remember a single detail from any of them. At all.)

I'll tell you what you can do: The Sakura Wars manga. I get the impression that it's a completely different take on the story from the start, but there are a couple of volumes of our main character trying to fit in at the theater and trying to get along with the women before the mechs become anything more than a bit of background.

Actually, Zoids was pretty fun. I absolutely loved the ending theme.
