    I'm going to assume that Harper returned you a yaoi show. Maybe it's costaring John Baird or Jason Kenney.

    The two your AS handle returned were pretty cool! The first one for your real name was funny, and the final one made me think "Mari Okada is going to write for KyoAni?"


    As for Yosuga no Sora's Akira. Well, I haven't watched that show in a long time, but going by memory, I'd say that these are her five key traits from most important to least important:

    Bold
    Friendly
    Playful
    Flirtatious
    Humble

    What's your take on her?

    Well the only Gundam I ever liked was Double Zeta. FMP was what I would lean more to, but specifically the Fumoffu series. TSR really ticked me off.

    Sword Art Online is my only series this season and comes out Sundays. Suits me just fine.

    Golden Boy was definitely the biggest hit. A seemingly classy chick having a secret fetish for getting off from her motorcycle then taking the protagnist to task to show her if a man was truly worthy of her was quite a sight to behold. And early eps of Haganai are hard to go wrong with - pity about anything after the 5th. And yes, that scene was exactly why I picked Episode 5 of YnS. That and Akira had the best personality out of any of the arc girls. Within that circle, the rest would have received iffy reactions. That bath scene got a huge laugh and applause, right from the leadup.

    I haven't watched any Hyou-ka past Ep1 but I am somewhat interested in trying, but not high on my priority list. I think the series proves the aesthetics matter but that the subject matter has to have more appeal than simplicity.

    Hmm, the key traits of Akira. I think the fact that she's the most energetic, positive and smiling girl despite her secrets from the past make her the most likeable. Her energy is very infectuous. The fact she lives somewhat carefree and untied by constraints is also intriguing. She seems to fall somewhere in between the genki and ditzy types. Energetic but sometimes she has a brain fade which leads to amusing situations (the sunscreen, the changerooms, the rail-walk, the bath, sliding down the tree while doing the splits, etc.) There is a certain feeling of wanting to protect Akira's zest and her somewhat free spirit. The serious/darker moments really feel like a downer with her - she needs to be smiling and livening things up. Whereas someone like Nao, who has a more serious face and bigger proportions, invokes a more serious and steamy scenario. I guess another aspect would be despite her outward positive nature, Akira wants to belong to a network within a home and the fact that she is forced to live alone quietly eats away at her since she has no connection to her real family. Haruka is able to bridge that gulf and give her reasons to be able to move on that. A notable early instance is when Haruka refused to give up looking for the pendant no matter how much Akira said it couldn't be done. In general scenarios, Akira was pretty unflappable but when it ht close to home, Akira was quite vulnerable.

    I'll go into others a bit later but a want to get this out of the way firs,entering just "okada" gives you what i think is a much better result:

    Quote:
    By Brains Base, a 100 episode mystery anime about okada's love life.
    or better,enter the japanese order

    Quote:
    By Bones, a 13 episode mystery anime about okada mari's becoming god.

    more later

    Akira is playful. She knows how to tease and at the same time is a lot smarter than she lets on. Not sure how to put that into a term though

    I tried Muv-Luv ep1. I was rather disappointed. Those overshadowed and oily textures that plagued the 90s combined with genericness all around gave me no reason to continue. Sword Art Online only it is for this season.

    Kokoro Connect episode 2 was a significant improvement over the first episode. Tbh, I was expecting the series to be about "mucking about" in other people's bodies, but no, they are trying to make a decent light drama with some comedy but limited fanservice out of it. I was impressed.

    That culture festival ep in Hyouka was pretty amazing. I can't recall in recent times seeing a better episode regarding a premise that is so overused and mundane into something that was a lot of fun. My three MVPs:

    "Galaxy! Oh no, My Saturn!"
    "It's quiet here... best job ever"
    Chihayahyouka (Aka Karuta)

    Had a look at your convos with GE and I didn't realise you actually like Hyouka that much .

    I can't honestly say I think original vs. adaptation has a big impact - it just seems like Tari Tari has more conviction about the characters than Kokoro does, so far. I don't know whether that's the fault of the source material or the adaptation.

    As to Hyouka, while I loved the last episode, for my money Kanon still represents the clear high-water mark for a KyoAni series, touch and otherwise. Hyouka is a bit inconsistent (I never bought into the whole "Eba" arc) and tends to do better when it tries to do less.

    As for Oonuma, my suspicion is that his role in KK is pretty limited - I simply don't think he's capable of being as restrained as the first episode was. I used to like him quite a bit - EF and the first season of B-T being prime examples - but for me, his work has declined pretty precipitously in quality over the last two years.

    And I think I've fallen for Konatsu (hence the avatar ). So. F***ing. Moe. Even if this show does a HSI ep3, I'll still watch for her. Ep2 had some pacing problems btw if you haven't watched it yet.
