I can't help but think that "'The Sacred Blacksmith' director and character designer of 's-CRY-ed'" would give a much better sense of what this show is about...

Watched, the first two episodes, looked like another horrible generic mecha show, made worse by Gonzo's awful CG. But I can't pass the possibility of winning something. Maybe it sucks less later on.

No, it's generic all the way down, so unless you have a great dislike for its character design and generical plot, go pancake ahead.

I want RIN more, but this would be cool too. (Especially if that's one of those squishy boobies mousepads from J-list. Laughing Those are hilarious looking.) Nothing really piques my interest in the Section 23 giveaway either, but I want to follow ANN anyway. Maybe this is the month where it finally happens for me?

I actually like the lady on it, not the pad itself. But I'd rather have Miu's pad instead. Both of them certainly own a fine pair of melons, that's certain.

That mousepad...kinda depresses me. I'd just heard someone mention "boob mousepads" and was trying to envision it and YAY~ now I don't have to. I guess it's better than a body pillow? At least they can't make them for loli characters? Yeah, there is good in this. I think. Cool

(Actually if I do see a "boob mousepad" for a loli character, I maaaaay lose all faith in mankind. Just a heads up. Careful what you "um, actually" message to me.) Anime dazed

Oppai mousepads have existed for a while. And they do have loli ones. They also have feet, knees, shota crotches, butts, etc. Consider your faith lost.

I'm getting a bit tired of people going generic this, generic that. I mean, I do it too, but I found this series really entertaining regardless of its "classic" elements. I think people are using tropes and stereotypes to judge things way too much these days and are missing out on a lot of fun stuff.

There are two kinds of mousepads for a certain famous character named Jun Watarase that might do the trick.

I (sadly) googled those...can't post the pictures in good conscience. X_X But HA! They had to cheat because they can't shape the lower portion of the mousepad like her nonexistent boozums...so it's...just a normal mousepad with dirty pictures on it...yeeeeeah. So they can't technically make them out of loli characters, they just cheat.

Okay, the rest of those are funny, but WUT? O____O ...Yeah, now I've lost faith in womankind too...

Another contest? Yay! Haven't seen the show but I'll certainly try it. As for the mousepad, heh, I'm sure I could find SOMETHING to do with it (more like, find someone to embarrass with it).

Oh look, an angsty youth is granted a robot and a pretty girl that fell from the sky. And he manages to maneuver it perfectly the first time. Sure haven't seen this before in anime.
