    Finally had some time watching High School DxD. First of all I'm so taken aback by the fact that I would come to enjoy the story. I can't still get over it. I've gone into the show expecting full blown echhi scenes for no apparent reason with zero contribution to any relevant plot point. Well, the echhi is there. But then the story starts taking shape at a very deliberate pace. I'm at episode 5 and it is evidently clear this is a shounen series with a pretty decent story to tell with very good character progression set forth for the male lead. So I was very confused why the show would opt in for any echhi scenes at all? It doesn't need it! When a show is opting in for explicit stuff rather than implied, it usually means a show is fully aware that the story isn't really good and that only way to keep the attention of an audience is to go with low brow fanservice. I like it when those type of shows make it clear by episode 1, i.e. Amaenaideyo, 2x2 = Shinobuden, Eiken OVA, Gravion, or my favorite Ikkitousen (which all of us claim to watch for the "story"). This show, however, don't fall into the same category just because it HAS a story. So I didn't much care for the fanservice (aside for the poll-dancing ED ), but have enjoyed the story a lot surprisingly enough, especially how deliberately it has set up the pacing. Is this a one-cur series or two, cause I'm worried that it won't be able to wrap up whatever plot point it has in mind in one cur.

    Anyway, I'll continue to watch this, but this time actually for the story. Btw, are you watching Chihaiyafuru? This is one show that is truly a gem!

    To make sure you are not confused, YES IT IS. I just downloaded the song now.. I don't see why you think it's not. Have you even been into the link?

    Lol, sorry about that. I haven't watched the show so I just picked the first image on RandomC that looked vaguely romantic.
    I've changed the image now. Did I get the pairing right this time?

    Actually it was Haak (contest leader) who came up with them. I'll forward your message to him.

    Seen your comments on romance around the place. I think you had a good point. Even if Steins:Gate had romance at times and had 18+ origins, labelling it as romance as one of its major genres isn't on. I guess it leading that category is more a weakness of the romance genre this year. Seems to happen in that poll every year. 2 years ago Cross Game was fairly dominant. *shrug* I guess that's what you get from smaller sample sizes.

    I think you accidently turned the AS Awards forum into a riot ...

    However, I do agree with your comments regarding the romance genre and Steins gate winning. It does seem... rather unusual to say lol, but I do understand where people are coming from. But I guess if people were that unsatisfied with romance in 2011, or simply didn't watch any, leaving it blank would have been the best option.

    A supernatural element, eh? I hadn't heard about that, actually. I take it that remains mostly in the background? Since I haven't heard about it I'm assuming it doesn't play a major role in the events.

    I noticed there was a Kanon (2006) sub-forum in the Older Series section; how active is it?

    Well you never know. I've seen some people see an image or scene they liked and then just commandeered it for their own personal use without knowing what they'd just commandeered.

    Is there anything I should keep in mind while I'm watching it?
