A couple of weeks ago I was complaining about Chizumatic being down. Looks like it’s back in business. This is great, since I recently finished Haibane Renmei and have been looking forward to his review. I avoid reading detailed reviews of movies and things until after I’ve seen the work in question, and then I compare my impressions to those of the reviewer. I’m sure I’m not the only person who does this, although to many it probably sounds wierd. For me reading reviews is more like having a conversation about a movie after seeing it, and Den Beste always has interesting things to say about something that goes well beyond “it was good / it sucked”.
