    Hey, I see you've finally started on Aquarion, what took you so long ?

    (btw, if you check out the VA casting for the series, you might find it a little too familiar )

    Tyvm for your very kind words.

    As for Winter season followings ... hmm.

    There are kinda three tiers:

    A: excellent shows: Natsume Yuuchinjou (fave of season), Mouretetsu Space Pirates and Daily Lives of High School Boys (also Thermae Romae, but it is already over), Hyouge Mono (carryover)

    B - solid shows: Amagami SS+, Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki, Ano Natsu de Matteru, Chihayafuru (carryover), Towa no Quon (carryover), Inu x Boku

    C - still unsure about: Recorder to Randoseru, Rinne no Lagrange, Papa Iu Koto

    Another, Nisemonogatari, Brave 10, High School DxD, Symphogear, EVOL, Area no Kishi, Phi Brain, Mirai Nikki, Last Exile, Persona 4, Tantei Milky Holmes 2, Kill me Baby and Prince of Tennis 2 all failed to hold my attention (although Another is a extremely well done series without a doubt - still it is not my cup of tea).

    Some quick thoughts on the topic:
    -Disagreement can be overcome (I remember what my first couple serious conversations with Reckoner were like). Disrespect (real or perceived) is, in my experience, considerably harder to overcome.
    -Medium matters. ASers can be blunt, but we also often discuss topics in substantial detail and depth, which tends to foster understanding and decrease the adversarialism somewhat. This does not happen in most "spur of the moment" conversations in real life. It also does not happen with people who are only interest in doing "drive by responses" to the weakest points raised by their opponents, which unforunately has struck me as the "ANN way" on a couple occassions. And in the case of ANN in particular, I it's not helped by A) Zac's "persona" is built on shredding people and especially stupid people, and B) that their staff don't really cultivate an image of approachability, which can also make a big difference.

    I actually tend to view Zac as a sort of "gateway to the west". That's not to say that I agree with Zac's tastes all that much, just that I think he's very representative of your North American anime fan who never took to the moe boom (i.e. a large chunk of that late 90s wave of anime fans I've seen you refer to).
    You know, this made me realize something: Zac strongly reminds me of certain people I've met in the Vancouver anime scene.

    ...particularly in terms of considering bluntness and "no holds barred" a virtue. I'll be honest, more often than not my reaction to these people was "you know what, I think I'm going to go talk to somebody else".

    It's fine. It's just lately...EVERYONE is asking me about it. Particularly here. And I'm sick of having to restate my position over and over. I can talk about it to a certain degree of politeness, but when the frequency I get asked at suddenly goes berserk, I get ticked off.

    And I haven't watched a single thing from Winter 2012. I got myself to watch the original Amagami SS and have nearly finished Liar Game live action. After that I may finally have the will to finish Steins;Gate.

    If they have issues with just that, I wonder how they would feel about my planning to watch list in the lower section of this page.

    I don't have issues with people liking the show. I just get sick of people asking me about it. I'm so over it. I was over it the moment I finished watching it. It just showed to me how much things have changed in so little time and that a generation gap was truly set in stone in 2011.

    As for people I know who will buy Madoka - it's pretty much all current gen people. The old school people who actually like it don't feel complled to buy it in any way.

    What I find amusing is Madman licensed it for Australia and are releasing it at a normal price. Even though I generally don't like Madman's content overall, I at least respect the fact they don't punish anime fans for their fandom. That said, I mainly do business with Siren Visual.

    In all honesty - I hate 2011. I don't know if I'll like anything from 2012. Truth be told, at current I'm watching the live-action version of Liar Game. And it wipes the floor with anything I saw in 2011. So, I'm not sure what to think these days.
