    Even shows specifically yuri-genre don't take a realistic approach. We've got no hope at all when it comes to shows outside that narrow focus.

    And yeah, I think you might be right about the "teasing" thing. I think it's probably cultural. Japan loves subtext and indirectness about as much as America loves being loud, obnoxious, opinionated and over-the-top.

    Lesbian relationships are one of those touchy subjects in Japan because they don't want to acknowledge that a woman could actually be happy with another woman, as opposed to being a baby factory for the all-important husband. The "Class S friendship" horseshit seems to be built entirely around this fear--they want to keep thinking of lesbianism as a phase, something that girls get over when they become adults.

    They're just "playing at love." It's just "practice" so they know how to be a good little wifey for their (inevitable) future husbands.

    Ugh, the whole thing just makes me want to punch kittens.

    Well, I never expected you to take your sig literally. But you have to give PA props. It was like they knew we were talking about power rangers.

    Anyhow, glad to know that Triple R Video Productions is still around since I'm aware you're busy atm.

    I'd also like to tell you that I am watching Nana with Demi. and while being a good show itself, I can't shake the shoujo-ai vibes the show is sending. Okay, the show is NOT that, but I'm sure you may have the same goggles that I have at times. I'm telling you this simply because we probably thought you'd react similarly to us to certain scenes.

    This series really sparkles. It would make Okada jealous.

    Excellent. Your post also reminded me just where I first saw it. Silly me...

    I strongly agree that now would be a very appropriate time to post that picture... but alas, I don't have a copy of it either. I'd give you that honor, but it seems we both don't have access to the picture anymore.

    Now that you mention it, I can't even seem to remember where I encountered that picture before. I've seen it, that's for sure...

    Funny thing is that I do have disagreements with some of the specifics you brought up but I felt your overall message was getting lost a bit in arguing about stuff like Toto from wizard of oz

    That and the sarcastic mention of Fractale kind of made me go "that's it,I've had enough"

    Thanks for backing me up in the thread I made. I'm really sorry I haven't reviewed PPPL yet, and hope that my slowness doesn't dampen your enthusiasm or make you wonder if I enjoy the story that much. I love PPPL and always read the new chapters right away, but, well, I'm a lethargic person and reading is admittedly much more fun than writing. I'll review before too long, though.

    Decent people aren’t always decent when you walk in on them in the shower, and my tendency is to say that both sympathy and a bit of slack are warranted. I’d honestly say the biggest problem with most male leads isn’t that they take the hit – which may well be the best course of action – but that they don’t do so with dignity.

    That said, if the female character’s personality allows for swallowing pride (ie. probably not someone like Taiga), I still think an after the fact apology or repentence is a golden opportunity for the writer. Especially if the character is a tsundere – bashful mode on, yes?

    (Also, - and I suspect you might agree with me on this – I’d rather see the guy be pacifistic to a tsundere than subscribe to this “she hit me, now I’m justified in putting her in her place” BS I hear some people articulate from time to time. Escalation is not self-defense.)

    Aha, Okada's revelation about True Tears is very interesting.

    But now that I think about it, PA Works for all their faults has a rather large and strong moe lineup atm, don't they?

    IKR? the first time I see it I looked at it 10 minute straight

    Things have been good for me lately, study at University feel much better than highschool, people are more mature and easier to befriend with. my drawing skill got much better too, I think I will be able to draw original CG for PPPL soon (don't count too much on it though), still working on it ^^.

    I don't want to sound too fanboy for Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo since it's not exactly a masterpiece in the making at this point - but given how much apologetics and evangelism I've been doing for the show via VM and PM this past week, I feel like my work won't be complete until I mention to you that I found the second episode planted it firmly in "better than it sounds" territory.
