I'm still not Teppei, but I'm getting so I can squee monster names with the best of 'em. It helps that pretty much all the monsters in UG are ones that showed up in Mebius. ID'ing 'em's much easier if I've seen 'em before.
And you know, the end of episode 12 is a really inconvenient time to realize that this series has 13 episodes to it. *head-->desk*
(This entry on Hirata's blog is freaking hilarious. I'll try to make time to translate it sometime, since it totally cracked me up.)
