    His highs include the epic Macross: Do You Remember Love? movie, which really was the benchmark and trigger for series getting a movie. Macross Zero - a lot is good about it but a lot kind of never gets resolved or is very bewildering. Macross Frontier - don't even get me started....

    The underlying issue with Kawamori is you can't expect a coherent story for the long haul.

    My issues with Acquarion EVOL largely related to the love quadrilateral in it. IIRC, Okada's writing impacted that more than Kawamori's did.

    Basically, I think that Okada's approach to romance is a bit heavy-handed for a mecha show. It might work in something like True Tears, but it can overwhelm the story a bit if mecha action/conflict is supposed to be a key part of the story.

    That being said, I'm not *that* familiar with Kawamori's work in general.

    Tabby has a point. He can be good at one moment then go completely off the deep end the next. But you were into Escaflowne, so I guess you're familiar with his shenanigans.

    You know, I honestly do miss the fun/flashy sort of mecha shows that you tend to get with shows like Aquarion EVOL and Valvrave. Yeah, they can be dumb sometimes, and their character/romance handling is often far less than perfect, but they're also very amusing and enjoyable rides (most of the time) and make for great "water cooler/shooting the breeze" talk.

    So thanks for the heads-up on the upcoming Aquarion sequel. I'll definitely be looking forward to it (though I hope Kawamori calls the shots more than Okada this time, presuming both are still involved).

    So apparently specifics of a new Aquarion series are being announced on March 20.

    Hopefully it won't be an entire series of Kawamori and Okada both trying to kill each other via spite.

    So, what did you end up picking?

    Oh boy, something awesome happened in my neck of the woods.

    Somebody finally opened in izakaya style Japanese restaurant & bar in SA. Mate of mine tried them out a couple of nights ago and said they were pretty tops. Definitely got several bunches of friends I want to go to that place with.

    Probably someone looking for a cheap cash-in. Yosuga no Sora had nudity without H scenes, so it's probably going in on that angle since, you know, naked bodies = $. It was a reasonable title overall but the Sora arc really does leave a very bitter aftertaste due to how sinister it is and dragged the rest down. Not because of the obvious factor, but moreso because Sora's version of love is utterly selfish and cruel.

    Yeah, that could cause trouble.

    A bit of a surprising licensing decision given how Yosuga no Sora is a few years old. Are the American licensers going back to the old "license every anime show that comes out!" approach, I wonder?
