    Girlfriend and I marathoned the Kokoro Connect Michi Random arc tonight.

    I didn’t have nearly as big a problem with the ending as you did – I did see Iori’s journey as a deconstruction, but in more of a “genki-moe girls are as capable of depression and grinding axes as the rest of us” vein. I didn’t see her overcoming those issues at the end as ruining the point at all. I did wonder a little bit why she rejected Taichi in the end but I think the ambiguity there may have been intentional. I also like that they actually concluded the love triangle, far too many light novel romances just go nowhere.

    Major difference in how we ended up where we did would appear to be that you found the contrast between Iori and the rest of the character notable and tried to find a meaning to it, I did not.

    Also, regarding Taichi and his sister: they’re one of the few pairs of this kind I like, because there’s just enough subtly for me to see them as loving each other merely as siblings. Kind of like how I could just barely write off some of Koyomi’s more perverted actions in Bakemonogatari as figments of an overactive imagination – the lack of this subtly is the one major complain I have with Nise and Neko in comparison. (Also, the reactions to Taichi's little outburst of glee were just funnier than your average bit of siscon humour.)

    Madoka is 150 - part of the reason I picked it as a cut off is because it seems to be a "go to" height for short characters. Fuko, Kei, and Azusa are all 150cm.

    Sayaka is 163cm/5'4". Compared with a Japanese national average for 19 year old women of 158 cm.

    Feyris is clearly much shorter than Mayuri in the OP even accounting for being farther into the distance in the "lineup" shot, though the cat ears make her look a bit taller than she is. She's drawn about Mayuri's height in many scenes though.

    It makes me wonder if the maid cafe staffers at Cos and Effect 2011 used the OP and/or actually heigh "spec" as a reference for costume assignments, because the (proportional ) heights look surprisingly close to me:

    I'm kind of surprised that Madoka wasn't below 150 cm. She certainly struck me as notably short compared to Homura, Hitomi, Kyouko, and Sayaka. Sayaka must be pretty tall if Madoka is over 150 cm.

    Sana, Miu, and Ohana never struck me as that short, so I'm with you there. And while Feyris struck me as a bit short, I never thought she was below 145 cm!

    I have a weird habit of memorizing the "official" heights of anime girls.

    So here's a list of girls under 150cm (about 4'11) in a few shows:
    K-On!: None
    EF: None
    Madoka Magica: None
    All Key anime adaptations: Kud (145cm)
    Tari Tari: Konatsu (149cm)
    Mashiro-iro Symphony: Sana (148 cm), Miu (146 cm)
    Hanasaku Iroha: Ohana (147cm)
    Steins;Gate: Feyris (143cm)

    Is it just me, or did some of those really not come across in the anime?

    (edit: added Tari Tari, Madoka)

    Question: what do you think the odds are that a cosplayer cosplaying as Eru in the second Hyouka ED would be mistaken as cosplaying Sherlock Holmes... as opposed to, you know, Chitanda Eru cosplaying as Sherlock Holmes?

    You're the second person I've had peg episode three as the point where the show starts to get great - I personally place it a bit earlier, with the scene in episode 2 where Mashiro wants Sorata to model nude for her.

    ...No seriously. In addition to being a kind of fun reversal of the norm for a fanservice scene (normally it's the girl who ends up in the compromising position in a scene like this), it's the moment where I first really grasped how Mashiro's artistic ambition and socially ineptness are related, and hence got a sense of what made her tick as a character. And no, I don't think it was just that I was on the lookout for stuff like this to vindicate my position that the outrage at the show's premise was unwarranted - or at very least blind to the tongue in cheek nature of the show's audacity.

    And... I'm through six episodes of Sakurasou now. Yeah, episodes 3 through 6 were all really strong, maybe with a slight hiccup in Episode 5 were the comedy was briefly too heavy for my liking.

    Thanks a lot for recommending this show to me!

    I just finished the third episode of Sakurasou.

    I'll be honest - The first episode really didn't do much for me, and it felt pretty generic aside from the premise of a guy being surrounded by actual screwballs (as in, people widely recognized as such, even by virtue of where they live).

    However, with the third episode, the Toradora comparisons are now becoming clear to me. It does have that same "cut above typical anime romcom" feeling that you get with Toradora and Ano Natsu. In other words, it has some intellectual heft to it.

    Mind you, I was never a big Toradora fan, but that mostly had to do with me tiring of KugRie Tsunderes and with Ami annoying me greatly. Sakurasou is actually a more pleasant watch for me since none of its cast members annoy me (at least not yet, after three episodes). I also think it compares well (in most respects) to Ano Natsu because it doesn't have that sci-fi thing going on that can be distracting and detracting from the mood.

    So yeah, I'm now starting to see why you, Pocari Sweat, and Konakaga all wanted me to watch this show. I'll probably marathon up through the first six episodes later today. I'll share more thoughts with you on it later on.

    Would you find it strange if I said that of eight Ririchiyo cosplayers I’ve run into at Vancouver and Seattle conventions, two of them have also cosplayed Taiga from Toradora and one says she wants to cosplay the character?

    (Also, for its profile Inu x Boku SS is really popular as a couple’s cosplay, I’ve seen three couples do Soushi and Ririchiyo in the past year (as well as one case of two girls cosplaying the characters).)
