    I will return the pm but it may be a bit... Working during the summer so i don't have the flexibility i do when i'm at uni. Normally i won't be this late getting to bed to be honest.

    I don't personally find Hyouka or Nichijou superiour to previous KyoAni works, myself (well - Hyouka is, from a purely technical standpoint). I'm just talking ideals and principles.

    I don't know if "respectful" is the word I'd use. Don't get me wrong - I totally agree it would suck for the fans. I am one, after all. All I'm saying is, I can see the artistic reasoning behind it and would respect that - hypothetically, mind you - they would make their decisions based on artistic ideals rather than financial ones. Again, though - I wouldn't be happy about it, personally

    It would be really interesting to know what "values" people associate with the Kyoto Animation "brand".

    Re: Kuroneko and Monogatari:
    I kind of suspected that she wouldn't and ask him what he thought, he said he thought she'd hate if because of the fanservice. My own opinion was subtlety different but I didn't pursue that line of conversation because I was intending the discussion to be more humourous than serious.
    Basically, Kuroneko likes dark, edgy, difficult to understand stuff. Sometimes I think she might well have the kinkiest imagination of them all but mere mundane fanservice would be below her. In addition to that, Nise as a whole is a lighter, more humourous entry in the Monogatari franchise, which would not be to her taste. Kind of ironic because IMO Nise's teasing bordering on trolling sense of humour actually has a lot of common with Kuroneko's personality.
    I get the impression Bakemonogatari is considered fairly sophisticated series in Japan - a Japanese fan of the show who was studying English in Vancouver once told me she was surprised that Canadians watched it. I got the impression that what she meant was that she thought that the show wouldn't be accessible to a western audience. Didn't get a chance to ask what she thought about Nise, it had started airing at the time but with travelling she hadn't had a chance to see much of it.

It's very, well, smooth. Not exactly exciting, but impressively handled without a sense of uneven pacing or jarring scene transitions.
    Do you think that's really a strength of the writing, or the visual direction though?

    I found that there were more details begin unveiled via the art, animation or even via Oreki's imaginative spots than I seen through the dialogue. Heck, in a lot of way I think the transitions between the scenes is as you put it smooth due to how well the direction had been.

    Not that I disagree with you, but I'm interested in what you think the writing had a hook other than what I've seen.

    I don't know if you're still planning to post in the thread, but I'm curious if you have an opinion on a couple of the ideas I raised. Namely, that that Hyouka's success is due to tapping into a nostalgia of sorts for some of KyoAni's older properties and that Nadeko's popularity is in fact due to how she contrasts with the series as a whole.

    Somewhat related, I often feel that when it comes to KyoAni's shows, there's often a world of difference between logically grasping the elements that make the shows successful and emotionally doing so. You pretty much have to intuitively grasp the emotions involved to understand why fans love them. Tends to make explaining the appeal difficult, unfortunately.

    BTW, while I was driving an anime buddy home last night we got into one of those discussions and came to the conclusion that Kuroneko is probably a fan of Bakemonogatari but not Nise. I found the whole thing somewhat amusing.

    Ah, nope, I haven't watched that. I watch too many series each season nowadays and Tiger and Bunny just got lost in the shuffle. I don't think I've heard anything about it, what's it about?

    It's ok. Besides, while I'm not a Sayaka fan, I do think Gen's penchant against her is getting too far lately.

    Comp issues? Tough luck. There are some very good shows these season, so I can understand your frustration.

    Anyway, I'm about to watch the latest episode of Lupin. It seems there's some yuri in it so....

    I really wouldn't fuss about the bizarre nature of what it takes to crack 10k sales, mate. Just enjoy titles for what they are. Things change within 1-2 years but there are some common traits over the years. I think Hitomi Azuma did a book on it and it had some pertinent points, if you wish to follow it up. But just remember - we're a completely different type from what the domestic anime fan is, so unless we were in Japan and living it, it's not really possible to say for certain. Sales are more a result of pre-existing fanbases, marketing, merchandise lines and the fanaticism that resides within the fandom. So yeah, don't get down once ridiculous numbers for AKB0048 come out.
