Spring ‘08 pickup week 2 Thursday

Library War - Budget budget is occasionally budget, but I like what they’re doing with depth of field and thick borders. Interrupted by MacF, but returning, I found a lot to get my attention; there’s a lot of creative choices in how to animate things, and it hasn’t detracted from flow yet. Also, the setting is great.

Soul Eater Late Show - What’s different? The eyecatch and the preview. Can’t wait to see the week 1/week 2 ratings on this.

Kaiba to come later.
