    So I've been thinking a bit recently about how I like to watch the occassional trashy harem show, and I got thinking about how some people complain harem shows never really follow through on their premise (ie. the guy ends up choosing one girl or there's no sex or whatever).

    And it occured to me that maybe the reason for that is becuase most writers and fans of the genre tend to approach it in a tongue in cheek manner: the premise isn't treated that seriously because nobody involved takes the fantasy itself that seriously. In contrast to romance anime about couples, which many of the same fans do take seriously.

    It kind of reminds me of a blog post I read where one guy said that he tended to like eroge about "bright colours, happy school days, predictable and yet amusing situations, one nice guy being dragged around by lots of cute girls"... as opposed to, you know, actual ero content. I'm not opposed to some ero, but I feel that he captured the mindset of me and perhaps an awful lot of other fans as well.

    Do you have any thoughts on this?

    I hadn't even heard TBH, which supports my suspicion that this is a bigger controversy in the West. As does the fact that the criticism I see seems to be coming from all Westerners.

    I did find this...

    Well so far, the mix is working for me. Insanity can be fine if you're all-in committed to it.

    Last year Atsuko Ishizuka had a panel at Sakuracon, and I didn't go because I didn't realize she was the director of Sakurasou.

    I'm only going to be able to attend for a limited amount of time this year, but is there anyone on this list you think I should aim to try and see?

    TBH the premiere reminded me a bit of R-15, too - which I consider high praise but most would consider a serious insult. There's the same sense for me that there's something humanist and a little deep underneath all the silliness and ecchi, but that most people will never see it.

    Interesting, I'd missed that.

    Wouldn't you say it's fair to argue Watanabe substantially improved on the source material with MGX by virtue of his choices?
