    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

    Hmm, no unread visitor message notification...that's odd.

    Anyway, it's not that I dislike her, I just think that she, and the anime is a bit overhyped. As you might know, at the time it was airing I'd been away from AS forums, so I basically watched it alone. And the impression I'd gotten was that of a solid, innovative anime. Every aspect of it was generally good to very good, but I couldn't say I was blown away by any of it (or it as a whole).

    For example:

    The art style was cute and rather unique but the thin character outlines that were intentionally made to look as if they were just drawn roughly by a pencil...ain't diggin' it. And the witch battles with that book-pop-up-like art switches gave me the impression that the creators were trying too hard to make it look more artsy.

    Just about every character acted as if they were born and lived for a single purpose. This is something I don't like in anime. Now I realize anime fans/otakus do not look see them as real, normal highschool girls. Neither do I, but seeing as how I keep any fetishism away from my thinking pattern, it wouldn't be wrong to say that I would rank considerably lower on the "openness to highly imaginative" ideas for what little cuties such as these should and should not be doing. I mean, they all seemed to be completely independent from their parents and free to do whatever the hell they want, like risk their lives. This all seemed exaggerated and bordering pathos. Let's just say that this type of friendship motif is a bit too much for me, what K-ON!! did is more to my taste.

    I actually liked Madoka, but she was too meek and uniform most of the time for me to develop any great affection for her. Homura was the one whom I really disliked; seriously, for some highschool girl to go through such length to save a friend is such a stretch from reality that I couldn't possibly buy that.

    Of course, that's if you disregard the colossal yuri "sub"text, which I thought was even more in your face than Nanoha's.



    That said, Madoka Magica definitely had a couple of good qualities as well: surreal music, excellent pacing, and Kyubei (loved his little monologues). After all, I did give it a rating of 8 out of 10, but I'm not the most critical person around when it comes to anime.

    However I do think my opinion would be different if I'd been here and at least read some of the discussions. Just by looking at the, now cooled down, Hana Iro finale thread one can see how much people analyze what probably isn't all that "deep". Hey, as long as it improves the experience, I suppose it's a good thing. Mawaru Penguindrum is another example of a show I would quite likely either drop or dismiss as rubbish if it wasn't so popular here - I simply wouldn't take the time to think it through.

    Oh right, as for Nanoha - I also watched that alone and I am not a lolicon, it's just a nice 7/10 show with exceedingly cute main characters whom were backed up by great voice acting.

    Shame on you for making a watertight argument Triple_R. Why don't you play fair for the rest of the forum.

    Actually, I made that remark because I simply noticed that on this round we had mostly opposite votes, 12 opposites out of 26, if I've counted correctly. I'm also aware we don't always agree, but in previous rounds the difference didn't stand out too much for me to notice. So I simply thought, "oh, this is one round where we are largely on the opposite sides of the fence".

    It's true that I don't really like Haruhi very much. I can see that she's a "must vote" character for you in much the same way Kanade is a "must vote" for me, but trust me in that I'm voting against her simply because I don't like her very much. (I'm not saying you implied that I vote against her for other reasons, but I'd just like to tell you my reason. )

    Best of luck to our Sayaka in today's AST match! She's currently leading now by 63 votes, I'll share with you the (unofficial, may contain some fake votes) vote tracker link as reference for her progress: http://fc.jpn.org/ast2011/

    I look forward to the day we get to support her side by side in ISML next year.

    As you said, great ending IF we get a second season... Maybe you meant when I said "best of the three"? Meaning, I'd pick at over MPD and Natsume Yuujinchou San... And I think I would. But Ikoku Meiro was my #1 of the season, with Usagi Drop probably 2 and KamiDolls 3.

    Where did I say KamiDolls was the best show of the year??

    Honestly, I don't feel as if I went in desperate to like it so much as curious to see what all the fuss was about. And there's been plenty of stuff I wanted to like (the 2nd season of Baka Test as an example) that did nothing for me whatsoever.

    I suppose there is a switch from josei to shoujo, but I think there are still some strong josei elements in the second half (at least so far). The kinds of issues dealt with are pretty dreary for a shoujo manga, and Daikichi still plays a pretty large role. I haven't participated in the discussions (I dare not) but I'd have thought that fans were at least as upset that the focus changed from Daikichi and Rin's relationship to Kouki's travails, and how they intersect with Rin and even Daikichi (who he still clearly sees as a parent). As I always liked that character it probably bothers me less than it would some.

    Through ch. 35 of the Usagi Drop manga (Rin just confronted Akari about her big lie). I have to say, I like this 2nd half a lot so far. It's still a damn good manga.
