Time Event
Thirty Days of Anime -- Day 9: Saddest Anime Scene

I've been on vacation, which has very much restricted my posting opportunities... so I have a lot of catching up to do.

Thirty Days of Anime -- Day 10: Favorite Slice-of-Life Anime

The saga continues!

But in this case, I'm not even really going to need a cut. My reaction is, er, what? My understanding of "slice-of-life" is basically mundane anime following ordinary life events, or at most it'd be ordinary life events happening to strange people (e.g., if "Harry Potter" didn't involve Voldemort but just was Harry growing up in a wizarding academy it might be a slice-of-life story). And I can't offhand think of any such anime that I've seen and watched more than a small part of, so my answer is... none, as far as I know.

Subject to change if I suddenly have a revelation.

EDIT: I had a revelation!

The current LJ issue...
Just for everyone's info, I don't HAVE either a Twitter or FB account so the question's moot with respect to any commenting I do.

Second of three entries and then I'll be caught up with this, I think!

Thirty Days of Anime -- Day 14: Current (or most recent) Anime Wallpaper
No cut, this one's easy:

I haven't had any anime wallpaper for quite a while. The most recent I am sure of was a picture done by my wife Kathleen of young Son Goku with the Great Dragon Shen-Long; I don't have a copy of it any more, but our friend Phil bought the original from her some years ago. If I find a good copy of it I'll post it up somewhere.
