On paragraph 3:
.hack//Legend of the Twilight pans out just like a typical MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game).

Supposed to say Massively.

On paragraph 2 of Elfen Lied:
Nyu is Lucy'

Is that supposed to have an S?

On the GITS review: http://www.animetric.com/ghij/gits.html
The little sentence under the name... thoughT-provoking?

Mes will come back with more, don't worry.

I wouldn't have nick-picked about the MMORPG thing. (You also kind of remind me of Simmons from the transformers movie, with his "Follow the acronyms" thing.)

I remember seeing that one too. not that I can do anything about it...

No such sentence in the review you're talking about, though both GTIS2 and First Gig both have one. Those are correct though.

edit: oh wait a minute, you're talking about in the headline...

I thought it was "massive"...
The Acronymfinder says it's "Massive".
The Free Encyclopedia says it's "Massively".
Webster's Online Dictionary says "Massive(ly)". Very diplomatic.
I assume it's not really important whether it's this or that. Just from a linguistic point of view I do not understand why it should be "massively" because, grammatically, it doesn't seem to make sense. "-ly" usually indicates an adverb, and adverbs describe/define other words, like "densely populated", and in "Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game" I cannot find a word that could be further defined by "massively".
Ideas, anyone?

Massively modifies "multiplayer."

So "multiplayer" is used as... as what? An exotic form of adjective?

Basically it modifies the phrase "online role playing game."

Saying "Massive" without the "ly" makes it seem as though your saying "Massive Game", when infact it doesn't have to be massive to be a MMORPG. Saying "Massively" makes it seem as though your saying the multiplayer network is massive, which it does have to be.

Thats what I've always thought anyway. Hope that answers your question.

I don't really understand, but I will remember it as a way of seeing the matter.

I just thought of something, shouldn't the titles with names starting with "The" have it on the end? Like, "Vision of Escaflowne, The". Also, The Animatrix doesn't have "The" anywhere on it in the links name.

From the fourth review paragraph of Voices of a Distant Star:

"Wherever two people who love each other are, their thoughts would always reach each other and in a sense they are always be together."

They are always be together?

Found something:

Melancholy of Haruhi, The
Suzumiya

Edit: In the second paragraph of the FLCL review:
"Anime and manga-style scenes are mixed together (as is the case with Gainax's "Karekano").This 6-episode OAV series is just beautiful"

Theres no space after the period in the middle of these lines.
