    So you really thought Nadeko in Nise episode 2 was the same ol Nadeko eh? I can't help but wonder if they ruined some of her appeal for me. I should probably give it a rewatch.

    Just now checking out that Safebooru image. That's a very clever idea behind it actually. Yeah, that's one yuri/shoujo-ai relationship that would fit like a glove, imo.

    Foxy, isn't linking to danbooru on a public forums a bit risky, potentially rule breaking considering it has a lot of R18+ content? I'd get that VM you sent to Triple_R into a PM before a mod may get mad at you, because I did it on another site once and their reply was pretty hostile.

    Aquarion so far has the edge because of all the okada wtf jokes,especialy in the last episode, that work quite well with me but I wonder if I'll like it as much when other writers take over.
    And really,I'm carrying over phi brain from the fall season,there's my unrivaled guilty pleasure right there

    Well I'm hoping that the introduction of other tennants might lead to some nice "secondary couples",we'll see.
    As for HanaKana,I could probably spot her just on humming.
    I don't want to brag (well actualy maybe I do lol) but she's the first VA I ever looked up after hearing her voice and that was over 4 years ago way before she got this big.

    just watched Inu X Boku SS and thought that I'd suggest you give it a shot,I remember saying you wanted something with similar setting and character interaction to Otome Youkai Zakuro.While It's definatly no Zakuro,it does involve half demons having to live in the human world and I quite liked the interaction between the male and female lead (who's of the Rie Kugimiya tsundere type,except not voiced by her) even if it's different from anything in zakuro.
    here's the OP

    Attitude/Behaviour - Ai restrains her emotions far more than the other girls, except for maybe Tsukasa, so she seems more composed. But the swimming, occassional masculine feature and her no-nonsense approach to what she does dispels any notion of an easy, carefree romance. Ai doesn't like to display public affection much compared to Haruka or Kaoru, but when alone, she is honest and perhaps the most intense of the whole cast. (Yeah, that final climaz was divine!) Kind, consciencous approach to her everyday life but doesn't allow herself to seem easy or weak. Subtle and almost quiet at a first glance but once you get to know her, she's actually very intense. Ai just restrains it a lot. And she wants honesty and someone she can feel secure with but equally the protector of, above all. Her consideration of the feelings of others, particularly her lover and younger people, exceeds most - I could only see Tsukasa matching her in that department. Ai doesn't tolerate weakness - within others or herself - and likes to have control of a situation as well as keep those involved informed (note her discomfort at the haunted house was a very rare sign of weakness) - except when she intentionally wants to surprise, whereas Haruka and Kaoru sprung a lot of surprises. Ai also requires a person to lift their game/ambitions in order to keep up with her.

    Dress style: Lot more casual than Haruka or what I'd imagine Tsukasa to wear, but not as much as Kaoru's or what I'd imagine Rihoko's to be. It's somewhat clean, somewhat cute, somewhat casual, but does retain femininity. It's got a girl-next-door feel but still has style.

    Intimacy: Very reserved yet is able to acknowledge how she feels quite early, which is different to most of the girls. (I think only Sae was the other to get feelings early and acknowledge them) Ai is the kind of person that wants to be a friend first, know she can trust/rely on a person before she gets the opportunity to confess on her terms. (Speaking of which, I think Ai was the one person who confessed rather than Junichi initiating it? Although it could be implied Kaoru took the lead in her arc?) And when she wants to be intimate, Ai seems to have the least inhibitions and will be honest about it - unlike Haruka who expects someone to know rather than implying invitation.

    ED theme - Very nice. A bit J-pop but not sugary. It's soft but has some soul. Perhaps the most graphic body shots of all the females? Nice piano and harmony vocals.

    Rant over. In a nutshell - Ai Nanasaki is awesome and so very cute/pretty/enthralling. A great execution of subtleties within her character and arc as well as a good seiyuu do her justice and then some - no wonder her popularity kept her in the ISML prelims. Rare quality of being confident but not egotistical, taking the lead but liking security too, craving affection but keeping it under control - a sum of subtlety, complexity and fascination leading to a person I'd feel privileged to know if I meet someone like her IRL. Definitely amongst my fave females ever!


    So, you have now made me notice a good deal of those aspects that are required for atmosphere/immersion/moe. Damn you! Yet...thank you. ^^

    Finished the Ai arc. I think I understand why you do fawn/pay particular attention to details with some shows/characters you watch, because Ai invoked that in me. I normally don't screenshot anime much but I took nearly 20 sceenshots of Ai. I'm pretty taken in by her, can't deny it.

    Some of the things I noticed while watching the 4 episodes:

    - Jaw shape may actually play more of a role in the feelings a character invokes than I once thought. I noticed Haruka's is a bit jagged/sharp whereas Tsukasa and Sae have fairly round, shapely ones. Ai's seems to fall right in-between - as if to give off a few almost-masculine qualities but enough femininity to remind the viewer of her true nature. It's also been well established within psychology that people tend to trust people with rounder faces/jaw lines a lot more than other people. So there's an interesting balance there - Ai's jawline has a little sharpness but more roundness - so she does invoke more warmth and trust. Whereas Haruka's sharper, more jagged face fits her more mischevious, playful, free-spirited nature.

    - While Ai's hair does feature bangs, I realised there was one particular aspect of her hair that I was drawn to a lot - a feature I've never had any other character invoke in me before. Did you ever notice on both sides of her hair, there was a strand a little from the top that would drift outwards somewhat? Not to the degree that is classified as ahoge, but they drift out enough to be noticed. I think that's an indication of Ai's somewhat spunky, positive, non-typical attitude compared to the cleaner/refined hairdos of Haruka and Tsukasa. I really like that subtle aspect of her hair.

    - Skin tone: Ai's is nowhere near as pale as Haruka's or Sae's but lighter than Kaoru's or Tsukasa's. There's a subtle yellow tinge/glow to it I haven't seen in any of the other characters when she's standing in light, but at night it's more white but fairly luminous. Subtle but it builds to the warmth. Blushes are evident but not dominant - her cheeks flush lightly when she's embarassed or in a tender moment.

    - Eyes: Ai's are fairly catlike but not very. I daresay Haruka's are the most catlike, but I recall Haruka having smaller pupils a lot of the time. I kind of think pupil size has a subtle effect in the intensity of a look. Ai's pupils seem to have a consistent size, but her irises seem to take up more space within her eyes when she's in a more intense/intimate moment. Whereas Haruka's pupils varied or Rihoko's irises were huge, always taking up nearly all of the available space. Again, more subtle in Ai's case. Ai's eyes also seemed to drift to the sides of the sockets when she was trying to be reassuring or leading Junichi on.

    - Eyebrows: Ai's tend to only slightly dip when she's angry or being a little playful, or slightly arch when she's happy. Rihoko's go pretty extreme in comparison and Haruka's seemed to dip down more often to indicate mischief, while Ai's were straight a lot. Composure and subtlety.

    - Facial expressions, particularly via lips - Very slight change in shape and direction of Ai's lips. Far more animated in pretty much any other character. Ai can easily shift from one expression to another due to that reason.

    - Body shape: Haruka had very model-like proportions - tall, glamorous and lively. Kaoru's was more girl-next-door/less intimidating. Rihoko's were larger/bit goofy. Sae was petite except in the chest - I guess to intentionally heighten her awkward, silent nature. Tsukasa seems to have a more princess-like, refined physique. Ai's is...like I said before, a couple of things about her almost make her seem masculine/tomboy (jaw shape, smaller breasts, open shirt button ) but with a slim build, a gentle voice, more relaxed movement, more focus on open neckline rather than the legs, seemingly smoothest skin out of all the cast - there's no doubting her femininity, but it's more subtle. Saying that a lot, aren't I?
