Ultra Maniac 1 and Last Exile 8

After the 'more', notes on the first episode of Ultra Maniac, and episode 8 of Last Exile.

Ultra Maniac - Episode 1
Very light shoujo show about a high school girl named Nina who is a magician that isn't very good at magic and her best friend. The first episode was kind of fun, but I'm not sure that I'll watch more. It was your typical, girl casts spell that causes trouble and then casts another spell to fix trouble that causes more trouble kind of story. I will probably end up watching one or two more episodes, just to see if it gets any better.

Last Exile - Episode 8
A bit of an interlude after the action of the last few episodes. The ship is in for repairs and the crew unwinds with some gambling and a bit of a bar brawl. Not much of the overall story get's pushed along here (except for a bit of a cryptic conversation the captain of the Sylvania has). I'm still digging this show a lot. Oh yeah, and this episode had Chocobo races!

An added note on Ultra Maniac, it's based on a manga by Wataru Yoshizumi (Marmalade Boy). So maybe I should keep watching to see what happens.

I love Ultra Maniac but I'm sad because its all over...
When I watched episode 1, I was so happy, then I had the habbit of watching it everynight... episode 1 was funny, and I had fun watching it...
The last episode...Zoom In...I cried at this episode, it was fun but also kinda lonely but I enjoyed it...
I really wish there will be a 2nd season of Ultra Maniac...
