    I like your current sig. It's hilarious! I have no idea who is in your avatar now, but it goes well with your current user title.

    You know, as much as I like the parallel, I have to say that I had an awful lot of trouble telling that's supposed to be Kane's face in your avatar. He's just hard to identify without the baldness.

    (Also, the ion cannon scene seems to be surprisingly well known among C&C fans given that it occurs at the end of a game that was actually rather difficult. I ended up stalled far earlier in either C&C1 campaign than any other C&C game I made a serious effort to try and beat.

    Also, in regard to the idea to your of Matsuri as an example of the "high end" of the moe spectrum, I agree she's up there but thing Spice and Wolf's Horo might actually be a cut above even her in terms of sophistication level. I've looked to Matsuri twice for inspiration when drafting a character but I've never attempted to try and copy what makes Horo great precisely because what makes her tick is so hard to capture.

    Glad somebody agrees.

    I may have been a bit harsh on it due to my strong distaste for certain overused and recycled stereotypes and techniques that pops up a lot in anime. The drawn out conversations during what should be a fight scene. Kiritsugu calling out Lancer's master's name before firing his gun, giving him time to raise his guard...

    I know things like this are all staples in the medium, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating, especially when I expected better from F/Z.

    By the sounds of the PV, somebody does actually die, so here's hoping they begin progressing the Holy Grail War a bit in the coming episodes.

    No problem. If you ever thought otherwise, I already guessed from your post that you weren't opposed to sexual fanservice in itself, but with its placement. And yes, I also think that it would be very sad for sexual fanservice to be entirely removed from anime.

    I should really see Guilty Crown some time, either when it's finished or in early January when the Autumn 2011 season is over and I can feel better about lifting my self-imposed anime watching restrictions a bit. The surprise mass hatred and the apparent cliche-fest that GC has become is a factor, but I was even more fascinated when I saw that the general thread for GC was temporarily locked. I'd like to contribute my own share of ranting, provided it's actually bad, if not I'll just absorb it happily.

    One very interesting recent experience I had with fanservice was with watching Nichijou episode 21. (Did you finish that anime? I can't tell because your anime list on MAL hasn't been updated for a long time. Not like I necessarily recommend it, it's very polarizing.) Let's just say for now that the scene involved Nano watching TV. It would be nice if we could get more subtle fanservice like that.

    Ty for the avy explanation ... makes a little more sense to me now.

    Yes indeed ... I happen to be very fond of the "healing genre" of anime in general; I'd even say exceptionally fond of it. So of course my tastes will excuse a lot of "other elements" that others might look for and exalt that series high up in my estimation. Coupled with that is that I was already a huge fan of Tamayura from the OVAs and the Drama CD. It will definitely be among my faves for the year.

    But to be fair, even though I love the series, it still does not exceed Ikoku Meiro for me. The latter is definitely shaping up to be my fave series of the year ... if something "de-thrones" it I will be quite shocked! Yune is still proudly occupying her throne and ruling with an iron fist.

    Re. Mashiro-iro ... I also like the fact that Sakuno is so normal ... although we will see as the eps progress.

    I just love you signature. That whole walking scene in general in the 1st episode was completely wierd, lol.

    I am now aware that Bake has potential yuri. Why didn't you tell me this earlier?

    Okay, I'll explain - without being spoilerish - why that gap exists. It isn't filler. It's there to take care of existing issues that needed to be resolved before the Munich arc takes place due to its 15 episode length. If I said which characters needed to be attended to before that arc, that would be spoilerish. But trust me when I say when you've reached 39 episodes, the purpose of that gap makes sense.

    I'm relieved you understand what Asatte no Houkou is trying to do and appreciate its mature approach, because I thought you'd be the type that would. When I played Episode 1 for a theme night, some of the younger guys at the club who think they know it all were berating me afterwards with 'This was too slow! It needed way more drama!' while the older guys all said 'We get this show. Thank you for playing it. We'll follow this one up for sure.' Shouko is quite a character - the irony of the character now stuck in a younger body being the most mature, rational one in the mix is not lost on me. Karada certainly handles a tough situation better than most despite her age. I'll be interested to see how you feel about Karada's future actions and the final arc. Hard to believe J.C. Staff adapted Asatte no Houkou considering what they do these days.
