Why? Why feel anything about that show you're talking about? Almost anything in this plane of existence ain't worth any rage at all and that show. That show - meh. It's not worth the time or energy. If people want to be fanatical about it, let them. Popular shows have next to no rationale or quality - always been the case and always will be. Just chill.
Well as long as what she does during the match is in the bounds of fair play, I don't see what's wrong. Most tennis players scream during their serves, and no one ever says anything about them.
As for me, I'm not sure yet as it's too early to tell. I don't like genki characters so as long as she keeps from going wild at every waking turn, I won't have anything against her. A girl with too much energy just never worked for me.
People on other sites talking about Chihayafuru have said they think she's a bitch. They've based their opinions mainly on Episodes 3 and 4. They think Chihaya was too weak/reliant in Episode 3 and that when she gets feisty during a match, that she's out of line. Some people think Chihaya's antics in Episode 4 were mean towards Taichi's girlfriend. Some people think she's the beneficiary of shounenish formulas. *shrug*
It seems people that can't relate to Chihaya find her weird or annoying. Which I find bizarre because frankly, she's probably one of the most just, loyal and pure-minded characters (within reason) this year.
Irisviel is pretty tragic. Nearly all interaction with Saber is done by her. Urobuchi said in an interview Kiritsugu only interacts with Saber three times. We've seen one and we know what the last one is. Only question is what the second one was.
What I like most about Chihaya is that she is a very moral person. It doesn't come into her head to betray a friend or hurt someone. Very few people her age are and they're pretty harsh on how they hand out peer pressure. Chihaya is the anti of that. I wish I had a friend like her in that point of my life. I didn't have anyone close to that.
Maybe she does it so someone doesn't take the inevitable step of groping her? But meh, Inori just makes me cringe. I can't stand seeing females being used by that.
It didn't work in Deadman Wonderland because the male was the primary focus. In Mirai Nikki, the female has a lot more prominence. Plus you need a weaker character to act as the foil for such an intense yandere. The character works here. Not really in a likeable way yet. But I figure Yuki will end up as Deus ex Machina. Part of the fun of Mirai Nikki is watching someone who supposedly can't handle the insanity living while the psychos get offed.
Haha! Never truly trust SHAFT fans. :P I don't! ^^
They probably wont show enough of it in Fate/Zero to get me to really like her...but I love tragic characters. My favorite character list almost exclusively exists of them. Although they need to overcome their pasts, not be stuck in it. That's when true character strength shines.
Yeah, Chihaya is a cool dude chick. She seems like she would be a great friend.
This is only speculation, but my take on why Inori acts that way is because she's some type of artificial human. I mean, why else would she have magical swords coming out of her chest? Depending how long she's been around, she may not have been in society quite long enough to know what she should, and should not be doing. I think you should watch a few more episodes before taking a dump on it. I think it still has potential to be something good. And the character designs are great.
Deadman Wonderland, and now THIS. I freakin hate whiny male leads. He will single handedly ruin the series for me. Well, and what was mentioned in my last post. I think I'll be able to like Yuno, I hope.
I've watched so much that there isn't a whole ton of older shows left for me to watch, so I see through things to the end in hopes of them not disappointing in the long run. And I'm also a bit of a completionist. Nevertheless, I feel like I'm wasting my time more often than not. >.>
Persona4 is still running strong. The guy that was fagging over it, and is the only reason I decided to pick this up...is the same guy that dropped the series two episodes in. That bastard. *Cough, Acejem aka Demisoa*
Is that some highschool comedy? I may pick it up if enough people have something decent enough to say about it.
Fate/Zero - Yeah, same feelings, although ep1 was slow. What happened to Sakura is expanded on in the Heaven's Feel route of the Fate/Stay Night game. Needless to say - Sakura went through hell.
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is the one ecchi series in a long time I'm enjoying the art, the type of service provided and the character development. Sena is just so delish - Meat indeed. Episode 3 impressed me with how it managed to keep the core values of the series intact while kicking up the service. Amazing this show can do that and develop the characters simultaneously yet so many other shows can. And yeah, the haters attitude in ep2 was hilarious. Sena is softening after Kodaka stood his ground in ep3, which is nice to see. But Yozora is going to take a lot more work, even with that moment at the end of the episode.
Chihayafuru - I love my strong/spunky females that aren't bitchy. Chihaya is one and not a bitch. There's a great character dynamic going on and my normally cold heart is warmed by this show.
Guilty Crown - I dropped it yesterday. Never been so disgusted by terrible character development and over-sexualising the female lead, on top of having stuff-all characters to boot. I found the service crap myself.
Mirai Nikki threw any sense of realism out the door pretty quickly. I'm just going to enjoy Yukiteru cry like a little baby, Yuno be a psycho yandere that deserves to be called a yandere and Norio Wakamoto own while voicing Deus ex Machina.
Admirable you have the gumption to see titles through. But when I'm blogging what I watch, doing reviews for licensing companies and doing anything IRL, I can't force myself to see series that drive me nuts. I'm only tolerating Penguin Drum since it's playing at the club, but I'm so bored by it. I don't find it funny or pretty. One thing I will say it didn't drive me insane like Utena did - or provide one of the worst drawn black/brown characters ever - or provide fail yuri.
I thought Persona 4 was going to be cancelled due to the staff walkouts? If that continued, gah.
January 2012 there's a series called High School DxD, featuring art souced from a damn fine artist called Miyama-Zero. It's going to be fairly stupid, but if it's animated well enough to honour Miyama-Zero, I'll watch it.
