    Ah, yeah - I've always been fascinated by shifting POV. Trying to shift the reality by who is reporting the events. I'm fond of Megatokyo and its "you see what you want to see" parallel realities. I'm trying to show the characters have some contradictory understandings of events, are telling fibs to themselves, or misinterpreting things. Having mixed results there.

    Off to look up your suggestion to see if its a Horo cosplay I've seen before or not.

    Glyc is one of those characters who started as an afterthought and has blown up in my face (in a good way). So far, she's the runaway "girl liked most" in the notes I've gotten.

    I'll grant that Tsika is "covered in razors" and a bit hard to like -- but I rather thought there'd be some Kpau flagwaving. Maybe its her form of medication that turns the average anime fan off.

    Crap, that's a great Taiga ... there's a substantial number of Russian women that are "taiga, tsika, tiny elfin wonders". First cosplay I've seen from one though.

    ((oh, guess I never really answered your question about tablets. I don't really have an opinion. We keep trying to decide why either wife or I would need or use a tablet and coming up with nothing. My son snagged a used one (Samsung?) to play with. If he tires of it, we may see what there is we can do with it. Recipes files for in the kitchen comes to mind I guess.

    Honestly, I know so little about cosplay that it's hard to have an opinion. Maybe KyoAni has enough exposure that most people everywhere will know the Hyouka reference?

    Where is the cosplaying taking place? I think that's an important variable.

    I am officially 2 months behind everything including shows that would be right up my alley including from the new world and psycho pass. I am however nearly up to date with sakurasou (what sorcery did u use okada) which I admitted to liking a few weeks back. Yes its chock full of cliches and character quirks that would normally annoy me but the way its executed gives it some polish. I think its got to do with the fact on how its a genuine teen Romcom for males. I mean it must be doing it right if I'm laughing half the time. Very easy to watch to and not the intellectual mindfuck that new world and PP is which I'm currently not in the mood for.

    Unfortunately can't share your sentiment on chuuboyoni. Kyoani may have done a brilliant job on Hyouka which gave Tari Tari a run for its money as the best slice of life/drama of the year (and that's with my obvious p a works bias) but chuuni is the exact kind of kyoani show I don't like - too reliant on over kawaii char designs and interactions and too gag centric. Same reason why lucky star, k-on and nichijou and a significant part of key does not work for me.

    As for your moe pretentious social club... LOL. I would so join. Would rant about most key heroines and chars like menma whilst glorifying hiromi, matsuri and wakana as the pinnacle of modern moe. Pretentious and hipster indeed.

    I was actually considering a Surface (even after all my MS tirades ). It looks like it MIGHT be a decent "living room / tv room" thingie for couch surfing.

    And... I'm through six episodes of Sakurasou now. Yeah, episodes 3 through 6 were all really strong, maybe with a slight hiccup in Episode 5 were the comedy was briefly too heavy for my liking.

    Thanks a lot for recommending this show to me!

    I just finished the third episode of Sakurasou.

    I'll be honest - The first episode really didn't do much for me, and it felt pretty generic aside from the premise of a guy being surrounded by actual screwballs (as in, people widely recognized as such, even by virtue of where they live).

    However, with the third episode, the Toradora comparisons are now becoming clear to me. It does have that same "cut above typical anime romcom" feeling that you get with Toradora and Ano Natsu. In other words, it has some intellectual heft to it.

    Mind you, I was never a big Toradora fan, but that mostly had to do with me tiring of KugRie Tsunderes and with Ami annoying me greatly. Sakurasou is actually a more pleasant watch for me since none of its cast members annoy me (at least not yet, after three episodes). I also think it compares well (in most respects) to Ano Natsu because it doesn't have that sci-fi thing going on that can be distracting and detracting from the mood.

    So yeah, I'm now starting to see why you, Pocari Sweat, and Konakaga all wanted me to watch this show. I'll probably marathon up through the first six episodes later today. I'll share more thoughts with you on it later on.

    I figure Cosplay couples like them because both members of the couple really stand out unlike other couples where one "ordinary" character is paired up with an "extraordinary" character.

    Episode 5 - Despite probably being so cliche, I lold so hard at the "park" scene. From the innuendo's to that gramp face who was walking his dog.

    Bravo Okada. You're actually making "perv" funny at times this time round for this show. She must be having a field day .
