    So then! What have you watched that you liked thus far and what do you anticipate watching during the Fall 2011 season?

    For me atm I am watching:


    Tamayura Hitotose (the one I looked forward to the most)
    Chihayafuru (a pleasant surprise)
    Morita-san wa Mukuchi S2 (new material! yay!)
    C³ - Cube x Cursed x Curious (not fully committed to this one yet)


    The iDOLM@STER

    First review series complete. Also started the 'Anta Baka?!' Report segment and did a quick piece on the revelation of Kenji Kamiyama's latest work.

    Interesting conversation with Zero. Charlotte was the only IS character I liked. I thought she was cute as hell.

    Fate/Zero doesn't have Sakura and Rin since they would have barely been born when the Holy Grail War of that time happened, I believe. The PV vid I saw seemed decent. ufotable did Garden of Sinners and did it right. They're bound to do a better job than Deen. I'll give them benefit of the doubt for now.

    Lack of movement is a real plague in the industry this year. And I don't like it.

    Interesting October season piece you did. I think this season has more potential than people are willing to give it credit for.

    PS. Keep making watertight arguments. Someone around here has to.

    PSS. If Haruhi loses, we riot and manufacture 'Best In The World' T-Shirts!

    I’m more defending the thematic elements he’s using than the lack of female characters. If I were to write a story with similar themes I would likely include more female characters (in fact, I kind of want to write a story with some F/Z like themes after seeing that episode), and I think that he also had a few opportunities to include more female characters. In particular, I think that Waver’s role could have been filled by a female master (for some reason I keep thinking his replacement could be similar to Miharu from Kamisama Dolls), and I think that Irisviel could have been a much less passive character while still getting across her devotion to Emiya’s cause. I just happen to think Urobuchi’s portrayal of the Magi is interesting and that their corruption really gave Saber’s first appearance a “hell yes” quality.

    My biggest disappointment with the show itself was actually the lack of animation, which I think you also mentioned. The artwork itself is great, but the lack of movement made many scenes feel really cheap.

    As to Saber herself I actually did find her moe in the original… she definitely is a badass, but from what I remember she also fit the “so serious she ends up being cute” archetype pretty well.

    Also, it just occurred to me that Saber in a suit bares a strong resemblance to Charlotte wearing a boy’s school uniform early in Infinite Stratos – even the hairstyles are fairly similar. And for some reason I really dig both outfits.

    (I think Charlotte would probably have been my favourite IS character even if it turned out she actually was a guy – which I actually thought she was for a bit since, well, writes do sometimes throw in a male moe character these days.)

    Agreed that not having Rin and Sakura around is going to be a bit disappointing… the biggest Type Moon fan among my friends and I were basically cheering every time Rin appeared in this episode.

    Had my "season kick off party" with my girlfriend, brother, and a couple other good friends today, so I can now start commenting.

    I'm not sure if Gen was locked into using these particular characters based on established Fate/Stay Night lore, but if not, I have to really question why he'd go with such a seemingly non-diverse cast on the Master side.
    While I understand your perspective, I never really questioned the reason behind the lack of diversity. He's trying to portray the Magi as hyper-conservative, plutocratic, and in some cases morally bankrupt. That the major mage families we've seen are strongly patriarchal is also intended to give this message.

    Given that, I'm not surprised that the one female character we know is going to play a major role - Saber (who looks freaking great in a suit, I have to say) also carries (IMO) a bit of a messianic quality. If the scene with Sakura (one of the few anime moments in recent memory that actually creeped me out) proved anything, its that the old boys club badly needs to get cleaned out.

    Oh BTW, I was showing a friend True Tears to compare it to HSI; and I noticed a scene near the start where Shin and Miyochi were talking about Hiromi wanting to be friends with noe. Then Miyochi speculates if Hiromi "swings that way"

    Oh my... yuri fanfiction in-series.

    Not sure if you watched this, but reaction?

    I heard you decided not to check out the ending episode for Blood C.

    Now it does have a lot of gore and all but it's a decision I am against. Watch it please. It's completely worth a watch. It's not up to me to establish whether the ending was marvelous or disgusting but I personally found it well done, all things considered. You should watch it to see for yourself ;_;, why would you not after sticking with the show till the end?

    Based on the post I quoted here by Kanon:

    Thanks for the link to the vid, it gave me a nice, good laugh! I admit I still haven't seen the original Gundam (or the other UC series for that matter), though I'm familiar with some of its main characters, and even then it was still hilarious. Char and the forces of Zeon are the true heroes for defending all of humanity's cute girls from that other, alien white devil.

    Gah, you guys have derailed the thread. I am going to get penguin #1 to push the buttons on you guys.

    On the other hand, you've done a very good job of presenting your own case. It occurs to me that people who dismiss what you say into "but it's subjective" are the ones least likely to be able to accept another opinion so they just dismiss it as "you could be wrong" But that's completely useless, since an opinion is inherently of the owners and could be right or wrong!

    It's like this magical "I win" button where it magically invalidates everything said.

    So no, you weren't using loaded anything; I'm surprised you didn't just link them to this.

    As for Nanoha, I'm not a lolicon either, I just love Nanoha a lot for her personality and style. I've always been a big Superman fan, so I love those magical girls that embody a lot of his characteristics, only within the form of a cute mote girl, lol.
    Ha ha, indeed. I'm a fan of Dragonball Z so I enjoyed it in the same way, t'was fun to see huge pink energy beams flying around, what with those cool rune-inscribed magical circles spinning below their feet, the "Onegai, Raisingu Hearto!" - "YES. I WILL DO AS TOLD." (or whatever engrish line it uses) intermissions and calling of attacks, then the relaxing slice of life moments and once again, fabulous voice acting

    Have you seen the other two seasons btw? I found A's a lot less amusing and I have StrikerS still on hold, probably due to lack of Nanoha focus in both. The movie was great though.

    Don't thank me, I like talking to you. Feel free to discuss anything that crosses your mind and might be of interest - while you're, I can see, a lot more busy posting walls of text on various threads and subforums compared to myself, I'll invariably have time for a more private detailed analysis of whatever anime we might be watching or have watched
