Congratulations to Jacksonville State and Dragon Ball:

Congratulations to Jacksonville State for reaching its first ever NCAAM Basketball Tournament, otherwise known as March Madness, otherwise known as 'the dance.'  They did it by beating the #1 and #2 seed in their conference during the tournament, too, which is pretty impressive.

Jacksonville State, Northwestern, who else will be new to the party?  That's what makes this week so exciting.

Congratulations are also in order for Dragon Ball.  Today marks its 300th non-filler episode/movie, an anime length only surpassed by One Piece, Pretty Cure, and Naruto (that have reached my great anime rankings, which are the only series that matter).

Meanwhile, Demi-chan wa Kataritai is dropped.  This series has run out of material, which has become painfully clear over the last couple episodes.  Even though it has nothing interesting, funny, or new to say, it just keeps dragging on and on.  The author clearly didn't know when to quit, which is the moment your theme, characters, and plot have been fully explored.  At that time you shut the creation down, and try again with a new story about a new concept.  You don't just keep repeating yourself in the hopes of making a little more money from gullible fans.  That brings the season's watchable count down to 13, which is still pretty good considering we're almost at season's end.  Still, spring couldn't come sooner.  I'd rather be watching Ero Manga Sensei than anything currently on offer.
