    You make a good point. One of my best mates refers to ANN as 'the Kotaku of Anime'. Which is probably accurate.

    Normally I just brush aside whatever they say in reviews. But this one went way too far. Only reason I wanted to discuss it with others.

    And you make a good point - it seems like ANN are fixated on the males in FSN. Like I said to Triple_R, they don't seem to get Shirou isn't meant to be likeable or have his ideals respected. Or that people are watching this more for Rin and Saber than Shirou. *shrug* They certainly do seem to under-appreciate Rin, as you stated.

    But enough about them. Asatte no Houkou - I own that one on DVD as well actually. Decided to get that a couple of years ago before it was likely to disappear/be hard to find. It's noteworthy on multiple fronts for me:

    - Aired in 2006, which was my favourite year for anime. Damn that year is loaded. And as you said to Pocari, 2005-2008 was a good stretch indeed. I'm with you on that one, friend.

    - I consider this to be a point where J.C. Staff gradually moved away from something more in-depth/mature. Around this time, they also did Honey & Clover (both seasons) and all three seasons of Nodame Cantabile. After the finale of that and Aoi Hana, they certainly shifted away from that style.

    - Age-swapping is certainly something rather rare.

    - It took a very complicated scenario in terms of the history/relationships between the characters and handled it rather well.

    - Had a rather unique soundtrack. Love the music in that title.


    It's definitely not for everyone. I showed one episode during a restrospective on the 2000s. The more red-blooded/action and ecchi oriented people certainly got annoyed by it. The pleasing thing was a bunch of more seasoned attendees came up to me after it and said 'Thank you so much for showing this one. You played it for us. We really appreciate it.' And it was for them. If I'd watched Asatte no Houkou when I was a lot younger, I don't think I'd have appreciated this one. I think going through certain life experiences and being able to appreciate how much the whole scenario sucks for Shouko in particular helps get into this title.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of it. I'd actually been rewatching it myself recently. Laughed myself silly watching Shouko and Karada go shopping in Episode 3.


    As for that live-action show, I'll ask my friends. We... have rather....limited access to stuff in Australia, in terms of TV. Unless you pay through the nose.

    Watching Asatte no Houkou, are we? Enjoying it? I rate that series highly myself.

    Question: Have you ever watched KimiKiss?

    Akuma Kinomoto finally got me into it, and I'm really liking it, after 11 episodes in. It strikes me as a show that you'd probably like as well.

    Yahari S1 was a pretty decent show. It had problems for sure, for example what is the point of the trap other than to pander to trapfags and it had its fair share of LN comedy and tropes, but I did quite like the conversation bickering between Hachiman and Yukino. Seldom do I get sick of Hayami Saori . Was very Bakemonogatari-esque at times. S2, which is airing now however is a completely different ballpark. It suddenly flipped on a switch where it went from pretty good show to excellent, kind of how say Hyouka started off not bad to godlike by the time the Kanya Festival arc hit.

    I never really liked Onegai Teacher/Twins and I actually think Ano Natsu is a superior show. It wasn't just the boobs tbh but the whole tone/atmosphere and approach feels off or at least not to my preferences.

    Asatte no Houkou. Never heard of it. Not sure if you are being sarcastic with your caps or legit tho

    I'm assuming you have time, since you actually posted in some threads and started a conversation with me in a long time (I missed you) so I think time for me to bug you about Aki no Kanade.

    Hah, according another source that lives in Canada, he says that that could be anywhere because all of Canada looks like that.

    Much like cosplay in general-- a mix of fear, amusement, and depending on who's doing it, a confusing and slight amount of arousal.

    the discussion you had with archon abot asian girls reminded me of this .
    My dayjob involves me seeing the passports of people so I get to know their age. Just the other day a 40 year old chinese woman came by and I honestly thought she was 25 when she walked in

    There's something I've been meaning to ask you for years, but I don't think I ever did...

    What was the inspiration behind your AS handle?

    Clearly some of it is simple creativeness - It has a neat look to it. But I was wondering if it had anything to do with Sonic the Hedgehog or some other video game. Or is it just a reflection of your love of fox-girls?

    My own handle is a simple reflection of how my real name has 3 R initials in it.

    I'm now fully caught up on UBW.

    IIRC, you said that Episode 15 was the one that had a big impact on you? I can see why. They did a good job of building up the Illya/Berserker connection before, well, you know.

    I'm now through 14 episodes of UBW 2014/15. I have a lot to say about it in the first spoiler space below. After that, will be a 2nd spoiler space replying to your 2nd last VM to me.

    Well... that went long. Hope you don't mind.

    I look forward to hearing back from you on all of this.
