The irrepressible Anime Blogging Collective are running a series of reflections on 2007 with a Twelve Days of Christmas theme. Non-members are invited to participate too, and so this is my minor contribution. Credit is apparently due to CCY for the idea. Some are seemingly using the opportunity to do some lengthy self-reflection; in my case you’re more likely to find brief and simple posts about 2007 (self-reflection is a difficult task when one’s blog has very little self to reflect on). This is at least a good opportunity to practice using WordPress.
Code Geass destroyed my critical faculties. Flawed it might be, but it contained a winning combination of things I love: luscious mecha, aristocratic costume (replete with cloaks), masks, over-the-top and melodramatic dialogue, and a joyfully ludicrous plot. Code Geass taught me that ‘I like it’ and ‘it is good’ are very different things, and it also started the Great Goro Taniguchi Back Catalogue Adventure (still underway).
Lowbrow? Certainly. But I don’t care.
Incidentally, the real cost of the items in The Twelve Days of Christmas, as calculated by PNC Wealth Management, is (if you live in the US) just under $20,000.
