    Or Dennou Coil, or Noein, or Major S1, or...

    TBH, that lack of imagination and creative ambition is strongly reflected in Free!. It plays very much as the almost unaltered K-On ripoff that it is. It scores points for not pretending to be something it's not, but that doesn't make it any less ordinary.

    Why do we always think of the cat?

    I just don't know what's going on with the racist crap in anime of late. I understand that Japan is a homogeneous country and notoriously insensitive on racial matters at times, but I don't remember two developments as revolting as this for a very long time.

    Question 1
    I wouldn't go so far as to say I don't think of Matsuri as an adult but it does feel strange at times. Another character I think of in a similar way is Sakura Suzuhara - the cute nurse in Evangelion 3.0. Maybe it's not coincidence they both where berets? The only thing keeping Sakura off my list is pretty much the lack of screen time, to be honest.
    Interested in your takes on Akiko (Kanon) and Tomoe (Hanasaku Iroha). Also, admit it, you totally forgot that Nanoha and Fate qualify.

    @Totoum: You and your psycho women. No Benika? I actually like her a fair bit.

    Characters I like a lot that have been listed so far:
    Triple_R:Junko, Irisviel, maybe Akane
    Totoum: Benten, Koko, Sui
    Archon: Motoko Kusanagi, Shinobu, Fate

    My top choices personally would be Matsuri (Sola), Horo (Spice & Wolf), Akiko Minase (Kanon),Tomoe Wajima (Hanasaku Iroha) and Zakuro (Otome Youkai Zakuro - I typically assume she's an adult). If visual novels are included, then Tsugumi Komachi from Ever 17 too. I also like Miura Azusa a lot - in fact, she might be my favourite Idolm@ster character. There's also Yumiko Kamiazuma from Touka Gettan (which I haven't finished, but she's that delicious...). And, from Fate/Stay Night, both Saber and Ilya (who if IIRC actually is an adult in F/SN!). And I'd probably go for the previously listed characters from Totoum and Archon's list to round things out (sorry Triple_R, I didn't like your picks quite as much)

    For a guy who usually goes for petite types, there's a surprising number of women on that list for whom visual appeal plays a role.

    Question 2:
    Agreed picks:
    Triple_R: Most of your picks are on my "want to see" list but in particular Ohana, Sawa, Azusa, Oreki and Chitanda stand out.
    Totoum: Sawa and Sora interest me a lot.
    Archon: Kuroneko, Ririchiyo, Ohana, and Mai make the cut.

    About half the characters I really, really want to see adult versions of age up are characters I conside to have a "cute junior" appeal: Kuroneko, Nadeko, and Azusa. I have the feeling they'd all still maintain their charms as adults, just with a bit more maturity. To round out the list, Oreki and Chitanda (Hyouka left their relationship tantilizingly open) and, strangely enough, Hanekawa Tsubasa from Monogatari, whom is mature enough I doubt she'd change much. I guess I just really love her bookish looks and intelligence.
    Ririchiyo, Ohana, and Sawa come very, very close to that group of top choices, so much so that I feel obliged to give honourable mention status.
    Rounding out: college age versions of the Madoka Magica's big five.

    Question 3:
    @Triple_R: Renji is far and away my favourite male character in EF, both because of his own traits (he's one of the cuter male charactes I can think of, actually…) and because of his relationship with Chihiro. And I do agree that Hiro is fairly likeable as well. I'm amused Kyousuke doesn't get a mention - he's the one I wasn't too fond of. I like Yuu a lot as a teenager, and I like him as an adult too… but adult Kuze somewhat steals the cake for me, just because of the scene where Renji asks him how his mom knows about the uniform collection.

    For top three I'd probably go for Renji, adult Kuze, and teenage Yuu in that order. And an honourable mention to Yuuko's brother for being pretty much as much of a magnificent bastard as you can get in the genre.

    Wow, blackface? Really? I made a joke about Uchuu Kyoudai and the whole Buddy the Gorilla fiasco in the RC podcast, "I guess minstrels weren't available." Little did I know...

    Merci pour la vidéo.

    J'ai regarder l'épisode 7 direct du coup moi aussi. Enfin, juste le passage où elle est en mode sadique. Je regarderai le reste de la série plus tard quand j'aurais plus de temps même si la série ne m'intéresse pas vraiment. Kana en sadique, ça ne se manque pas.

    I was thinking of the "I like that character's personality" sense but to be honest I'm interested in your answers to both.
    I'm basically thinking characters that have graduated high school but 18+ is pretty close.

    Yeah, I would say that's pretty early-on - that would be the equivalent of episode 2 or 3 of the anime. But I think that reflects the reality of the demographic differences between manga and anime in 2013. The studio probably figured if they introduced the males too early, half their intended audience would drop the show.

    I feel the urge to ask a few of you guys some questions as a thought exercise.
    1) Adult female characters that appeal to you. Immortal options are allowed but you have to give some non-immortal ones as well (because I want to get answers other than just Horo and Matsuri).
    2) Characters you'd like to see an older version of.
    3) Male characters in EF you like or dislike.

    I'll probably post my own answers at some point but it might be a few days due to various stuff I have going on.
