    I pretty much ragequit Glasslip. Made a rant post on it.

    Now excuse me while I curl up in a ball in the corner whilst you laugh at me...

    Zero good moe shows again this season. FFS...

    Closest thing is Barakamon but that's not really what I'm looking for...

    Guess I have to wait till Fall and hope Amagi Brilliant Park is good...

    So since Glasslip's first episode sucked, I am currently suffering from Quality Moe Withdrawal syndrome and it's driving me insane.

    FFS PA, this is one of the worst premiers you've ever made...

    T minus hurry the f*** up till Glasslip airs.

    On a humorous note this is what I replied when someone asked me my anticipation/expectation for the series and whether I would be dissappointed:

    Quote:
    Projected Impression:

    Base Value = 5
    PA Works = +1
    Not a Light novel adaptation = +1
    Anime Original = +1
    Director for True Tears = +1
    Mari Okada is not involved = +2
    Mixed Gender cast = +1
    Good background art, character designs etc. = +1
    Choucho = +1
    Nano.ripe = -2
    Very little glassmaking in the PVs = -2
    Yuri pandering promo pics = -1
    Possible romance wangst/melodrama = -1

    Projected score = 8/10.
    Disappointment prediction = Low

    @Fluff: I definitely don't like most light novel tropes but inconsequential SoL is a bit of a tough for me since Minami-Ke or Azumanga Daoih had spades of it and I really liked both. Why I do dislike though, if there's obnoxious girls (usually loli, tsundere, imouto or a combination of the above) begging for camera attention. And airheaded moeblobs or Rei/Yuki/Mashiro/Inori type mutes.

    @Glasslip: I meant more so in character designs and looks wise. Personality wise she seems somewhere in between Ohana and Wakana.

    I'm a bit concerned it might go the waaaaah teen romance drama route (partially due to the 2nd half of the 2nd PV with the nano.ripe song which was god awful btw) and if so I'm going to be mad. Really mad. Some romance on the side is fine, but anything that goes Nagi no Asu Kara, Kokoro Connect or Ano Hana levels and I'm gonna start flipping tables. Cause I really doubt if it was a romance centric series, the quality would be of True Tears, ef or White Album 2 level. I trust PA Works enough and that without the involvement of Okada, that the amount of "stupid shit" (ala Hanasaku Iroha episode 3) will be minimised so I don't have to worry about it being a Sakurasou or Toradora (which had a lot of "stupid shit" amongst the good moments) either.

    Give me Tari Tari/Hanasaku Iroha with a glassmaking theme and I'll be a very happy camper. Been too bloody long since I got a good dose of quality moe with substance to back it up. Or whatever the genre is called that these shows fall into. Moe slice of life/coming of age/drama/wistful/mono-no-aware thingymabob.

    Lottery tickets for the chance to order seiyuu-idol unit concert tickets before the general public.

    I am not making this up, and this is not the first case of an idol show using live concert incentives to move a lot of units. Uta no Prince-sama's second season also did it - the question is, will Love Live's subsequent volume sales return to normal levels like UtaPri's did?

    Fluff: Ultimately inconsequential SoL or light novel style tropes. It kind of covers both.

    Glasslip: slightly inclined towards your choice but I have to say she seems too hyper to evoke Hiromi. I'm also not feeling it on the tsundere.

    Brynhildr was looking like 2014 favourites list material for me and still might end up there but the second half definitely hasn't matched up to the first... the first half had some really tense moments that reminded me of why Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu remains on my all time favourites list after so long. However, a couple recent "wham" moments just came across as, uh... ham fisted and flat. And it really drags the show down.

    Holy moly. Love Live just broke even Monogatari and Madoka's record of highest 1st week bluray sales.

    Btw, what do you exactly mean by "fluff"?

    On another note, me and Archon were trying to label Glasslip characters based on first impressions. The main female is a Hiromi wannabe, the glasses girl is Mini-Tsuruko and the final girl with the big ribbon/bow? on her hair is Minko v2.0. We were also hypothesising which character we were likely gonna fag over. I'm most likely the Hiromi wannabe and Archon the Mini-Tsuruko. Neither of us wanted the tsundere. What are your thoughts?

    Considering I just finished Cross Game only about 2 months ago, and it jumped to my top 5 of all time (it was -that- fucking good) I don't think I'll be able to watch any sports series unless you're called Ping Pong which like Cross Game is a fantastic character study.

    Still have Zakuro and Ino Boku on my backlist...

    Main thing I notice is you don't tend to appreciate having much "fluff" (be it in tone or tropes) in your moe shows, which doesn't seem to be the style this past years and a bit... though with Ano Natsu de Matteru, Hyouka and Tari Tari finding success in fairly rapid succession in 2012, surely it'll come back at some point? Then again, all those had a pedigree.

    I really have nothing at the moment. I honestly think you'd be better off taking your chances with some of the stuff I've tried to get you to watch in the past like Otome Youkai Zakuro and Inu x Boku SS than with most of the recent moe crop (was going to plug Taisho Yakyuu Musume again but the more I review, the more I get the impression it might be too fluffy for your taste in terms of tone. Though still probably more up your alley than some of the recent stuff).
