    Given episode 10 is this weekend, gotta say it’s kinda tragic that the marathon will end there instead of 11. Although episode 11 *probably* is better to place on a 12:30 slot anyway. Still, that means no episode 11 till July 9th, god dammit.

    Oh well, starting from episode 4 to 10 is a good way to give people a chance to come into the series, and will be met the next week with an *awesome* erm… moment. That would have been far more awesome if Madhouse didn’t decide to make a certain, erm, ‘decision’.
