    So...what's the deal with healing? Is it meant to be relief from the real world after hard days at work and/or an outlet for the socially reclusive?
    Yes, pretty much. That's a very good nutshell explanation of it. "Healing anime" tends to be very sentimental and emotional. It's focused more on human relationships and daily living than specific themes or concepts (like in Sci-Fi) or complex plots. I like some healing anime myself, but I like to compliment it with shows that are more dramatic, intense, action-packed, and
    thought-provoking. In fairness to Tomino, "healing anime" can be a bit limiting for a director/writer, so I get his complaint. What was his recent botched project, by the way?


    Great to hear that a Milk Morinaga-like manga is selling very well! I honestly think the potential readership/viewership for this sort of mature/realistic yuri content is underestimated by the publishers and producers and corporate types. Some people like a sort of yuri-tease, but many are getting tired of it, and definitely would like more stories like Girl Friends.

    Thanks for the compliment on my taste. It's good to know that you and I and some other people want a fuller yuri that goes beyond just silly tease and *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* sort of content.

    Well, Akuma no Riddle certainly supports your idea.

    Gen'ei o Kakeru Taiyou is rather cruel to its most clear-cut yuri characters.

    Kancolle made a creative decision that might not have been made if not for Madoka Magica...

    There's still some soft/cushy yuri shows like Sakura Trick, but yeah, on the whole, I think your idea is correct. Yuri has become significantly more violent/cruel.

    I haven't watched a lot of yaoi, but Free! is a lot more soft/cushy than No. 6 was. Those are probably the two most yaoi-esque shows I've watched over the past few years, and Free! is the more recent one. So your friend and you might have the right idea there to.


    I think what's happened is two things:

    1. Madoka Magica popularized (or re-popularized) "tragic yuri". You could maybe even call it "crying games yuri".

    2. K-On! has been very influential, and has even helped inspire shows that are close to gender-swapped versions of it. Hence more soft/cushy yaoi (subtext).

    Awesome post, LS

    Thanks a lot for that. Good job breaking down my 1-10 question the way you did, to.

    I might reply to your post more later on, but I wanted to thank you for it ASAP.

    The other one I tried out was The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan.

    With both that and Vivid, I checked it out because I'm a big fan of the parent series (Haruhi and Nanoha). So those two shows were automatically on my "to watch" list for Spring 2015.

    As for the Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan... I liked it well enough, but it might be a bit safe and generic for your tastes. Even for me, it's a bit heavy on the conventional side, and I'll be sticking with it mainly due to fondness for some of the characters.

    As for the WWE, I might check out the next RAW. From what Akuma has told me, they've been getting pretty creative and bold lately with how they're handling their top wrestlers.

    I'm glad you liked Vivid. That's one of the two Spring 2015 shows I've tried so far.

    I agree with you that it isn't stellar, but it's good enough so far. It feels solid. It has a good mix of fun-loving and serious to it.

    Just so you know, I'm not ignoring you. But I only want to reply when I have something worth talking about. Unfortunately, I had the flu most of my week off, and that screwed up some of my plans. I did try HuniePop a bit though - It looks promising, and I like the overall style and voice acting of the game so far. I especially like Hunie herself. Lovely voice and cute personality.

    Once I play it a bit more and make some significant progress in it, I'll give you my take on it.

    The fan reaction around the IC Title scene is actually p lively. Do I dare hope WWE is trying to make the title relevant again?

    I recently had the misfortune to stumble on these Biden-Love Live! photoshops.

    I died a little on the inside. I can thankfully count the number of anime-related things that have actually really disgusted me on one hand.

    Here's a scowl I can get behind. ^^

    Well, the RR crowd was only hostile toward the RR match itself (though mostly towards the end. They were quiet during most of that match because the match itself absolutely sucked). The triple threat between Rollins, Lesnar, and Cena actually really got them going. Can't comment on FL crowd yet (RIP Elimination Chamber and No Way Out), but I'd say apathy is even worse. Because at least chanting this is bullshit! shows that you care. Last year's RR match was also at least exciting.

    Maybe I'm reading too much into, but I don't think The Streak was the only thing that ended nearly a year ago. If you know what I mean. :|
