So I was going to reply to this comment over at SDB’s:
So I just finished the Laxus arc (ep 48), and what I’m beginning to realize is that the battles in this show are kind of like the ones in DBZ, in that they seem to last forever.
And after I typed the short message below, I was informed that I was banned from the website. Again.
Your comment about DBZ was spot on. Apparently they realized it was popular enough that they’d be able to continue to the point that they’d catch up with the manga. The battles start taking longer and longer. At least they don’t spend entire episodes staring at each other and reminiscing.
This year, they caught up to the manga, showand had to start doing anime-originals, at which point I lost interest in both the manga and the series. Not even Lucy and Erza could keep me watching shounen fare indefinitely..
Now, I know that I’m not being banned at random by various mee-nuvians; it’s a glitch that keeps cropping up. But it’s cropping up more and more at random. Hours before, I’d successfully posted a comment, and now I can’t. To be fair, Pixy asked for my help in fixing the problem, and I didn’t provide it. I rarely know what my IP is, because could be any of those supplied by AT&T or the City of Houston (when I’m being a bad civil servant by taking a break and checking out the latest on F1 or anime, or just whatever folks feel like writing about).
Oh well, I guess I should go obsess over something else for a bit…and then complain about it.
