    Been busy lately? I have to admit I've missed your presence on the boards themselves lately.

    Thanks a lot for the birthday greeting. Don't worry about the lateness, as I'm often bad with time zone differences myself.

    I hope to get back to your PM later today sometime.

    I had a good chuckle over this post of yours. Almost seemed like you have a thing against edgy pretentious twats who think they are special because they watch "2deep4u" shows XD.

    Is this new Utawarerumono anime a remake, a sequel, or something completely new?

    The main page for it that you linked to certainly has a very nice visual on it.

    I knew about the new Utamono game...I expected an anime was coming. I'll check it out, although I hope that some of the old cast will be in it, but this game/anime might happen decades/centuries before or after the original so maybe not...

    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 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.
