    Actually, let's do this here to avoid clogging up the Delta thread on the RRRoundtable with Frontier discussion either.

    I think the valkyrie combat choreography in Delta may actually be superior to that of Frontier TV for the most part, though for some reason it's struggling to produce anything I find on the level of Frontier's Episode 2 chase sequence or some of the incredible air combat sequences in the Macross Zero OVAs.

    Sheryl is an amazing character, though one that took me a while to properly appreciate. Her super star aura is just the tip of the ice berg. She's actually rather multi faceted.

    At the same time, I recall Frontier's less action-y sections boring me a bit. Delta has yet to bore me. Even its more questionable bits still tend to be entertaining or charming.

    On the whole, I find Delta more fun than I remember Frontier being. And Walkure is just amazingly fun and likeable.
    Which part was it that bored you?

    I had a similar change in anime taste, particularly in mid-2013 after watching Love Live which made me much, much more favorable towards anime with large casts and lot of cute girls than I had been before. Turns out I had watched Girls und Panzer just half a year before then, so my view towards the characters in particular had changed quite a bit by the time I finally rewatched it three years later.

    First time I saw GuP I just dismissed most of the characters as shallow and wasn't that excited by them. Well, in fact the secondary/tertiary characters in GuP *are* shallow, but when on a rewatch I realized that that wasn't necessarily a bad thing, I was able to enjoy their silly antics and unique flavors so much more. And it really does help that the main five girls (Miho in particular) were sufficiently developed throughout the show to make me root for them and appreciate their more quiet SoL scenes between the action. I especially like Miho as a character, I think she's a very likeable type of leader, being cute, amiable and slightly shy but at the same time very cool-headed and clever.

    Anyway, I really hope you do give GuP another try someday. If or when you do, please share your final impressions on the thread or by VM/PM.

    I'm curious, what's your opinion on Girls und Panzer? I noticed that you posted your impressions for the 1st episode in the thread for the show, but you didn't continue after that. Did you like the whole show in the end? Who is your favorite girl from it?

    I recently rewatched Girls und Panzer to prepare myself for the movie which is coming out very soon, and I enjoyed it even more than the first time. It's a really amazing and fun show, a blast to watch (in more ways than one!). Since you seem to be enjoying High School Fleet a lot this season, I'm wondering if you felt similarly about GaruPan since I'm quite sure that anime was one of the inspirations for Haifuri.

    Konnichiwa everyone. Have been a bit quiet lately, but I'm not dead. >__<

    It's just because I was unable to attend Tagcom which happened about a month ago due to lack of funds, which is why I've been unable to update at the cos thread. For now, I'm just taking a bit of time off.. commenting randomly at anime threads here at Suki, taking care of my pets, as well as gathering funds - to make sure that I would be able to attend Toycon or Rampage (whichever comes first XD) at May. rawr :3

    /have a nice day. **

    In any event, yeah - Lack of romance (for a VN adaptation), and male lead kept almost entirely in a support role are probably the two major issues here sales-wise.
    Ao Rhythm doesn't really stick to the classic VN formula in that regard, but I'm not sure how much it hurt the show. If you want a VN adaptation with REALLY abysmal sales, Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete's highest selling volume managed just 419 copies and to me Ushinawareta came about as close to being a classic style VN adaptation as you get these days.

    Beyond that, Daitoshokan no Hitsuji did 788 and Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya o Mezasu failed to chart, which suggests less than 1K to me. Grisaia (4220 units) is really the only VN adaptation targetting male audiences to make it big the last couple years without a pedigree (ie. Fate, Little Busters, Utawarerumono).

    (Hence why I'm glad to see Hyouka broke the 10K barrier in bluray rerelease. With how bad the VN adaptation sector looks, it's nice to see a bright spot elsewhere.)

    One thing I do think was damaging was the weak opener. Ao Rhythem's second volume had a better first week (1076 units) than the first (1003) which is pretty rare and suggests some buyers didn't get on board until the end of the series.

    The opener had a couple flaws - the simplified version of flying circus doesn't look nearly as spectacular as the full version we see later, and the visuals of the flying circus scenes are one of the show's great strengths. Heck, we don't even get to see proper flying suits. Nor did the characters seem that developed early on.

    As for what I think of the series as a whole, I love it because it corrects those mistakes. The actually flying circus game looks great and is a lot of fun to watch - I'm not sure all the tactics used make sense, but I also didn't really care. And the characters get better over time, particularly Misaki. Heck, Mashiro actually becomes kind of bearable after the episode focusing on her and Hinata.

    It hooked me in the 2nd episode and never let go. Its story has put some characters I underestimated through some motions that made them stand out. I sense a tinge of political intrigue. It's infrequently genuinely clever. There's not enough of any one lass to justify watching it solely for them, but even the main girl still shares the next highest amount of screentime with our lead. I'm five episodes in

    Mike and Rin are basically what I would have pictured Honoka and Hanayo as if they had bonded together.

    Shiro has a point, but I didn't really like her current attitude..

    I could compared her with Umi, but that's unlikely..(Umi is Honoka's childhood friend while Shiro jus met Mike since several weeks ago)

    While Mike & Rin have saving Kayo-chin

    Likewise; hearing alternate insights and ideas is always fun. This has been one hell of an interesting ride so far

    So, it seems the side material for LL includes something about Kotori liking to see Umi crushed by defeat and having a self-made sad Umi doll at her bedside. This franchise can be really weird sometimes.

    Having said that, I haven't seen anything that bizarre for Aqours outside of Ruby's love for coelacanths, and I actually like that.
