    Lawl. Moe is definitely not a problem, in fact it's part of the charm that contemporary anime brings that no other medium does as far as I know.

    However what is a problem is fetishizing the concept, particularly when it involves sexualizing said moe characters especially when it involves prepubescent girls (and boys) or putting them in a light where it be deemed discriminating - I would imagine feminists in general would have a field day regarding the anime medium if they were informed about the hardcore otaku subculture.

    Quick question for you: are there any anime characters that tend to remind you a lot of Matsuri in Sola?

    For me, it's Yuki Souya in Taisho Yakyuu Musume. Granted, Yuki lacks Matsuri's tragic backstory and is far, far younger, but I feel the characters mannerisms are somewhat similar - it's one of the few other cases I can think of where Noto Mamiko takes her typical "soft spoken and refined" voice and injects a bit of "pep" into it.
    Can't think of any on top of my head. Never watched Tiasho Yakyuu Musume so I can't comment.

    She texted back "he likes hiromi so no taste".
    Pfff. Inferior commoners liking the noeblob! (intentional typo)

    True Tears reference? My girlfriend thinks yuou should up your rating of the show because of it.
    That reminds me more of Silver Spoon than True tears in all honesty .

    RDG is another show I felt was a mess but ended up liking quite a bit because of the characters. Though I will admit that I like Nagi no Asukara more than RDG. The pathos is more beautiful.

    Revised the post yet again because I honestly don't want to make a confrontation out of it, just offer up a different perspective on who thinks what and why they think that. And to add this 0utf0xZer0ism:

    Hence why I reacted positively to Space Dandy being pitched as a retro sci-fi comedy by Watanabe and... didn't react positively when it was pitched as being about saving anime from moe. Because if moe is a problem, maybe I don't want to be saved.

    NagiAsu is in the bottom half of PA series for me, only above the likes of Angel Beats and Red Data. Hell, I would say I enjoyed Another and Canaan better and it's definitely not the calibre of Hanasaku Iroha or Tari Tari.

    Also, regarding NagiAsu: the critic in me found Chisaki's reasons for taking so long to move on a bit unsatisfying. But the fanboy in me loves the Tsumugu/Chisaki pairing - I have a soft spot for quiet and reserved pairings - and that exquisite pathos! I haven't seen something like that since... well, okay, White Album 2, but I like the pairing her better.

    So yes, I've been loving NnA's second half because of Tsumugu/Chisaki.

    Perhaps a bit, but I think my really big frustration is just the sheer amount of time my "write to discover what my POV actually is" method of making insights consumes. It's freaking ridiculous, which is why I sometimes hate not being able to resist the lure of the debate. (Yes, I revised it again.)

    I get the feeling some of the "critics", "non-moe fans" and/or "moe haters" are getting on your nerves

    So I decided to power through about 12+ eps of Golden Time and holy moly. Something that is even more facepalm worthy than NagiAsu in the "romance mess" whambulance. I am impressed (not in a good way).
