I finished the first season of Angel. It was really great. I had some disappointments. I was really sad to see Doyle go so early in the series. Also Angel at times seems too tortured. I realize he is that type of character, but it seems like after some of the stuff that happened in the first season, how can it get much worse for him? It just feels like some things happened too fast and too hard right out of the gate. I do like that the writers show that he is super human, but no Slayer. The fact that Angel frequently gets stabbed, shot, ran through, and takes pretty heavy damage, where Buffy gets beat up but never as bad, just goes to show how much better the Slayer is. The first season ended well and I starting the second soon.
I also beat Megaman Collection Series while I was internet-less. It was really great. Even though MM3 is probably the best I enjoyed MM2 the most. I had a nonstop smile on my face from start to finish. The music was perfect, the bosses are probably the most memorable in the series, the weapons were fresh. It was just a great job. If only some of the other MM elements had been present (sliding, Rush, Megabuster) and it would have been perfect.
Corrections Retractions and Apologies:
Well I made a mistake in my last post. I stated that Kyushu can be seen from Osaka on a clear day, I was wrong. I was thinking of Shikoku by mistake. Kyushu is a decent distance away from Osaka and the Kinki region of Japan. I got the islands of Shikoku and Kyushu mixed up. Shikoku is the fourth largest island. It sits kind of under Honshu and to the East of Kyushu. I believe you can see Shikoku from Osaka on a clear day.
