    I think it's clear in these times people tend to prefer characters that are hard to dislike. The biggest case of success for that is K-ON. As light and bland as it is, it also provides very little to resent unless the fact makes one upset - which it does to me. Sales of series and merchandise are gigantic as a result and will be so for years to come. I wonder what on earth will be the big hook for the movie set in London...spotted dick instead of cake?

    I had an eye appointment this week to get new glasses. The optometrist was so much like Kurisu in physique, clothes and her laugh it was rather intriguing. It seems Kurisu's character is not only refreshing but also not far removed from reality. ^^

    Thanks. I was inspired by a similar image with Mayuri instead of Nagisa.

    One thing I noticed about the fic is that you're using a very direct, straightforward writing style, which is great because it means you get your point across very clearly and concisely. The only issue you might want to be careful of is that it sometimes that leads to telling as opposed to showing. For instance, in the paragraph that starts with "For a long time," you really get across the entire premise of the story in a few sentences, but you might want to consider whether that's really necessary. After all, it is tagged as a Saki/Nodoka romance, and even ignoring that, hopefully the rest of the story would be written in a way that the reader can understand what Saki and Nodoka's relationship is even without that being explicitly spelled out.

    A second observation is that Saki and Nodoka use relatively few contractions in their dialogue, which gives their interaction a more formal tone. If that's what you were going for (It's been too long since I watched Saki), then that's perfect, but otherwise, it's just something you might want to be aware of.

    Obviously, all of these stylistic things are personal taste and completely up to the author, and the fic was certainly fun to read (and cute as hell). Great job!

    You probably haven't ever wondered what Taketatsu Ayana and Hanazawa Kana think about loli characters, but if you're interested, I found a clip of it on the youtube channel of the guy who translated the Taketatsu Ayana and Hanazawa Kana in the "Why don't normal people like Otaku anime" thread:
    I found it very interesting (hey, the Japanese face the same definition issues we do!), and the fact they brought up Yuuki Aoi (Madoka, Victorique and a few other notable roles) amused me since... well...
    I mean, seriously, she's wearing heels.

    Awwwww it's cute. *Looks at your profile* well shoot, now I have a bunch of other stuff to read too.

    I've got to go to bed so I can wake up for class tomorrow, but I hopefully can draft up some more detailed feedback tomorrow night (not that I'm actually qualified to give advice on any sort of creative writing )

    I might have missed the connection had I not know... Kana is one of the few voice actresses whose vocal nuances I can pick up, but she isn't like Noto Mamiko where I'll pick them up like 99% of the time (in Mamiko's case, I once did this when she played a mute character, because of her breathing/eating sounds).

    I doubt she'll stop getting a lot of soft spoken roles just because she sounds so good doing them, but I can imagine her becoming known for more than one kind of role. Kind of like Saito Chiwa used to be known for playing cutesy types and is now well known for playing Hitagi and Homura, only with the two role types appearing simultaneously.

    Demisoda... I probably should send him something, I've just been incredibly busy recently with going back to school, especially since my department has fairly frequent social events (and its own orientation sessions!) and I'm living away from home this time. You may have noticed I've been posting less frequently in the HanaSaku Iroha forum in general... same cause.

    I know that Kana Hanazawa apparently said something about wanting to play an evil character in the past, but she seemed really into it in this week's Kamisama Dolls. Seriously, that was the voice actress behind Nadeko, Kanade, Mayuri, and even little Tomoka, and who is supposedly a bit shy IRL?

    I still attest if enough people really cared, Mikoto could possibly do it. She was a bastion for people to rally around last year when Shana fans tried to take over DE via some deals they struck in Ruby and Diamond. As much as I really don't like Railgun, I acutally like Mikoto as a character. I'm just mortified by the people she's surrounded with.

    Well, the sad thing is, May last year, I called Kanade dominating ISML 2011 after Episode 4 of Angel Beats. Almost everyone told me I was insane and that I didn't know what I was talking about. And look where we are now.

    The reasons are simple. Kanade is a very placed, simple character. It's hard to hate her unless you resent the fact she IS simple and placid. Which is why she gets more votes. When you have a personality, motivations and a more defined character type, you get more enemies/haters. When you're basic, tryptophanic and are non-offensive in as many ways as possible, you will get much less hate. That's all it is. Kanade is a cleverly constructed kuudere that melts the hearts of many people. But I don't vote for her. She stabbed the guy in the first episode...I don't get how people forgive her so easily.

    I share your sentiments. But remember than anime fans are one of the BIGGEST sources of apathy in the universe. So take it with a pinch of salt.

    PS. Again, great article on Kurisu.

    The results are out for KBM, both Sayaka and Kyouko advance!

    Oh, and the link to the image in your post in the KBM might have broken, I can't see the image...

    In any case, this is a great week with our genki knight earning two victories in a row in two days!
