    Definitely! :excited:
    Jolly good! I'll do things mostly the same but maybe try and make it a bit more fancy with one major change...

    Santa (me) will no longer be a user who is entered directly into the SS draw. Its to make sure that everybody sends and receives a secret present rather somebody losing out on the fun because I put myself into the pot and I knew their choices for myself.

    Instead i'm hoping all the secret santa people (or maybe a few select people/yourself) can get together and pick a present each for santa. That way I can still take part and nobody's fun is ruined.

    Sounds good! And that way, if my victim recipient does a runner again, I can chase you for feedback instead. :evil: :p:

    Yeah you were unlucky last year. I'll keep an open eye when doing the randomising in case we have a user who isn't very active. I'm still recovering from Perfect Blue from last year so go easy :lol:

    I know this is earlier than last year, but I have a lot less time on my hands to organise everything now so I need to start now to match last years timetable.

    I'm now running the TSR Anime Secret Santa! This works like a normal Secret Santa except you all pick 3 anime/manga choices that your user has not watched, for Christmas of course!

    Please let me know if you would be interested ASAP. This is a provisional list and i'll set an official thread up in a week or two.

    Roll Call:

    AngryJellyfish

    Would all of you be interested in entering our annual anime Secret Santa ran by myself? Just quote me back if so!
    I'm in - already in pot for Reverse Thieves' Secret Santa, but can handle another one. Although I do feel sort of sorry for people who have to pick something I haven't seen.....

    I'm a fair bit new to forums and whatnot but I'd certainly be up for this if you'd let me. I'm good friends with AngryJellyfish. I was the president of a University-based Anime Society until July & my anime-viewing has been poor since. I need a good punt up the backside to get going again!

    I'm in.

    However, I should note that I'm on the brink of giving birth, so if I vanish temporarily, you'll know why.

    Yeah, I like the fact [email protected] has 2D animation for the music performances. I feel Love Live! has better songs/characters but the 3D/CG models during the performances are pretty jarring.
    Did the 3DCG for Love Live get better in the second season? I didn't see any of it apart from the sick but sadly rather short 2D concert scene for A-RISE's song 'Shocking Party', which a friend showed me.

    I think it improves to an extent. If you compare this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxTx4UbD9vY) from season 1 to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW01NiN5Z2U) from season 2, I think the one from season 2 looks a lot better. They use the 3DCG for the bigger group scenes and mix it with 2D closer shots. & although you can tell that the 3D is being used, it looks a lot less different to the 2D than it did in season 1.

    Hopefully they can get the budget for total 2D animation by the time the movie goes into production. Season 2's first volume had the highest opening week sales for an anime show blu-ray ever so they should be able to.

    Yay! Challenge accepted, last year we didn't have many problems around this. The back up plan was for me to provide guidance to the person who is stuck.

    ive been in a manga mood lately and ive just read Ore ga Doutei wo Sutetara Shinu Ken ni Tsuite aka About How I Die if I Lose My Virginity :awesome: a bit of drama and romance with a twist and i quite enjoyed it, ended wellish but would have been nice if they added a bit more to the end, something like "i want your babies" :sexface:

    also read up to the latest chapter of Citrus :ninjagirl: pretty enjoyable and cute yuri/shoujo-ai but it seems to be missing something :hmmmm2:

    i think fap note will be my next read :dice: i never did finish it :hmmmm:

    A-P's 2013 awards seem to be dragging on... I keep checking back every few days, but the threads are still open. On the plus side, after re-reading the eligible OVAs, I was able to scrape three votes together... even if one of them was Nozoki Ana... and even that wasn't my 3rd place choice. :afraid:

    Got my Reverse Thieves Secret Santa recommendations and have come to the conclusion that whoever got me must be a complete stranger. Two shows I've been actively avoiding (Robotics;Notes & Love Live) and one 80s mecha I've never heard of (Panzer World Galient). Obviously going to review the mecha show.

    Haha, coincidentally I started Panzer World Galient myself two days ago (through my own choice), and am half way through it. :p: It's hardly Takahashi Ryousuke's greatest series, none of the politics of Fang of the Sun Dougram or mature characters of Blue Gender, but it's watchable enough.

    Considering I haven't actually seen any of Takahashi Ryousuke's previous series this is all the more amusing - they could have recommended the better shows instead!

    I might end up regretting this, but I've signed up for a second Secret Santa myself, over on A-P's forums. :o: I'm supposed to be focusing on rewatching old series! Ah well, Christmas comes but once a year and all that. :p: And don't worry, TSR's will still take priority.
