    Sort no Method looks more like my brother's kind of show than mine, but I might give it a shot. The premise reminds me somewhat of Natsuiro Kiseki which I liked well enough.

    With one more episode of Akatsuki no Yona under my belt since my last message I'll say the show is good but also somewhat slow so far.

    I'm still not sure what you'd think about Shingeki no Bahamut, but after the latest episode I'm inclined to suggest it as a possibility. Production values are high, there's lots of action, and the male leads might be flamboyant enough for your taste (they're both bounty hunters, but one's a mercenary/rogue type and the other is fallen nobility). The female leads kind of play the straight man to them (one is this possibly part demon girl who could be described as what you'd get if you crossed Natsuki's cool aloofness and badassery with Mikoto's appetite, strength, and naivety though perhaps I'm overselling her a bit since she comes across as a rather simplistic character).

    On that note, are you still interested in the HiME event? It's fine if you're not -I realize people have limited time and there are a lot of new shows this season. But if you do get a chance to post something that would be great, as my one consistent poster indicated he will probably do something else if the discussion doesn't pick up a bit.

    Friend on FB linked something tonight that scarred me.

    For the same reasons, I think you, on the other hand, will really like this.

    Finally tried out the Psycho-Pass 2 - yes, I know I'm late, but I figured since I'd probably end up watching it with friends eventually and never enjoyed the original as much as Fate/Zero and Madoka, I'd concentrate on the new shows to start.

    And based solely on the opening episode... wow, I love the direction they appear to be taking the show. I may well end up liking it significantly more than the original. I also love the direction they've taken Tsunemori - she was likeable in the original, but the "nerves of steel" she's gained make her much more distinctive and memorable IMO.

    Hanayamata objectively best cute girls X cute things show evar. It's liek Tari Tari and Love Live! got 2gether 1nite & look what we ended up w/

    No seriously. I was genuinely surprised with the amount of weight the show had. At the same time, it never took itself seriously enough to be mistaken for a normally serious genre. I'd link that to the pacing. The serious moments were gradually built up, and only abruptly broken by humor during their resolutions. It doesn't have the kind of 'reality checks' that Tari Tari and Love Live! did, but then methinks it aims for happiness and smiles above all else.

    Oh right. My cynical side will tell you Hanayamata is K-On! with yosakoi (think freestyle dancing with costumes) and a tiny bit of a lot of melodrama. The intentional kind. Imagine the theatrics of Ef (minus the romance, but the yuri undertones are strong with this one), but applied to cute girls X cute things and you've got a pretty good idea of how Hanayamata presents itself.

    On a more personal note, it's the second show since Sakurasou where I liked all of the characters roughly equally and a lot. Not that I expect it to mean that much

    PS: the dance in the OP reminds me of the Hare Hare Yukai.

    How are you finding the new season so far?

    My recommendations haven't really changed that much in the last few weeks. Its pretty much Akatsuki no Yona, Amagi Brilliant Park, and Unlimited Blade Works. Shirobako's pretty good too but you're already watching that. Shingeki no Bahamut is pretty slick looking but I'm not sure it would be to your taste.

    One reason I haven't sampled more stuff this season is probably because I haven't done any screenings with the guys I normally watch anime with yet (due to one of them writing grant applications). Left to my own device I don't necessarily get as much variety.

    Read something today that might explain why I'm feeling a bit disconnected from recent stuff and why so many people are into it.

    Quote:
    Tweens look for anime because it doesn't insult their intelligence as much as hyper-sanitized American "kids" fare
    Now that part I agree with. That was a big part of what got me into anime and manga.

    Quote:
    The characters are cool and attractive and inspiring.
    Somewhat....Cool sometimes but not always. Attractive is nice sometimes but not always. Inspiring, when it's suitable. I always felt that anime was also good at creating reverse effects that were qually potent and evocative. That a despicable villian could also be good viewing or seeing someone be different from the norm could also be interesting.

    Quote:
    Their struggles are familiar, and kids who are starting to mature can relate to their struggles.
    Here's where I begin to differ. I've never felt that. I saw Evangelion in my teens and I never felt that. Since I was a teen, seeing Misato and Asuka was the main attraction and still is. Even back then, I never related to Shinji. Now I've spoken to plenty of people that say they relate to Shinji and the like, so I do acknowledge this as valid. But I don't feel this personally.

    Quote:
    We don't just watch these characters passively, we self-insert; their adventures become our dreams. And, subconsciously, we reach for the shows that match who we want to be and what we want for ourselves.
    I guess this is a big part of why people enjoy the increasingly escapist nature of anime these days. As for me, I don't self-insert. I've stated before I've rarely liked males in anime and with the few I have, I don't want to be them even if I respect/admire them. And going through that list of my fave titles...they don't match what I want to be or where I wish I was. For me, it's usually shows that challenge my conceptions of people/the world or a way of living that normally wouldn't appeal but is presented in a way that is appealing.

    Quote:
    Younger fans want to get out and explore the world, be stronger, and get respect (and look good doing it). Older fans want to relive their youth.
    I acknowledge that's what the majority of younger fans want. Never felt it much though - harsh high school times and home life around then showed me such naivete is foolhardy. And on that same token, that dissuades me from wanting to relive my youth. I love being an adult. Most of my friends who are both adults and anime fans certainly aren't reliving their youth. So I call BS on this bit on the more seasoned fans wishing we were young again. The ones I know certainly don't...

    Quote:
    You can tell a lot about someone's hopes and dreams by what anime they're into.
    The females I know, most of them like Elfen Lied or Higurashi the most. And that is not indicative of who they are or what they aspire to at all....And let's not get started on the males.

    Quote:
    There are other reasons to love anime, of course, and not every show that everybody loves is a self-insertion fantasy, but... well, cosplay was largely popularized by anime fans.
    Perhaps this is why I'm so lukewarm towards cosplay. I'm not a self-insertion person, so wanting to be a character is not something I feel.


    And I think this perhaps does somewhat explain why my tastes differ so much from the norm/popular stuff of recent anime. The self-insertion/escapist nature of current anime isn't something I buy into.

    It will probably be FSN: UBW and Mushishi for me this season. Maybe also April is a Lie.

    Have been catching up on 2014 over the last week. So far it's between Ao Haru Ride and Mushishi S2 for my fave 2014 title. Sakura Trick and One Week Friends also did well for me.

    Sailor Moon Crystal has been rather underwhelming - I don't see where the justification for this remake is. Sword Art Online 2 - all the perks and frustrations one expects from SAO and Kawahara. Persona 4: Golden - while it is nice to see Marie and Kana Hanazawa get to appear, an even bigger super-compression that the first adaptation was....and the art still being off....just not on...

    The painful letdown for me this year is Barakamon. Lot of people I knew liked it and said it was a lot like Usagi Drop. I can 'somewhat' see the connection...but while Usagi Drop was calming, cheeky and pleasant, Barakamon is rather toxic for me - makes me angry in a way that hasn't happened to me since....Anohana, I think.

    So at the very least, 2014 was a better year for anime for me than 2013 was, but not by much.
