Heh. Now I know why you like plowing through a lot of anime. You want to find something you can comfortably watch with your younger sisters, lol.
I know exactly what you mean. I have two younger sisters myself.
Yeah, I'm from RabbitPoets.
Anyway, nice chatting with you. I wouldn't worry too much about "clean" anime shows based on H-games. I mean, those are complete adaptations: There's no real need for anybody to play the games in order to get the full story, really.
Yes, well, the 'squick' would have been a much more clear indicator as to how the manga ends as opposed to 'controversial' which has been brought up a couple of times :/
Have you actually read the manga? In my case, it all clicked when I'd read a post in the UD anime thread here on AS where someone said something along the lines of "the resolution is basically like having a 800lb elephant in the room and not noticing it" -- "Rin's mother had a thing for wriggly old men...wait...no, it can't be <HR rising to 180bpm>...okay, okay...<checks MAL thread>...please tell me it's just a Key ending...oh frak me."
It's sad how it's seemingly impossible for the otaku world (anime, manga, VNs, and LNs) to tell a nice, simple story of familial love that anybody with beloved family members can relate to.
Tell me about it. I've gotten my younger sister hooked on anime, the good kind, and I constantly have to "dodge bullets" like these; I thought I'd finally found a nice, heartwarming story for us to watch and enjoy together
The opening was a bit squicky but I took it in a comedic way and the relationship between Masako and Oji-chan was seldom mentioned after that. But I never would have guessed what the source material had in store. I do vaguely remember avoiding this anime because the combination of a 30 y/o man and a young girl gave rise to the notion of there being something fishy about it, call it my otaku instinct; after I'd started watching I laughed at the very thought of it...
I still feel a certain degree of shame (even though of course, I have nothing to do with that) because the source material for AIR and Kanon (2006), such delightful, innocent animes was a bloody H-game. I just hate it when some ecchi fan art or CG pops up when I search for normal, kawaii images of Ayu-chan or Misuzu
Sorry for the rant. You're from RabbitPoets am I right? Used to read that blog for a while, not sure if it was any series you covered. Good stuff (the blog I mean).
I caught your post there before you deleted it. It was probably wise of you to delete it, lol.
However, I wanted you to know that I myself facepalmed so hard when I found out what the Usagi Drops manga ending was. It's sad how it's seemingly impossible for the otaku world (anime, manga, VNs, and LNs) to tell a nice, simple story of familial love that anybody with beloved family members can relate to.
