    Noticed your new(er) blog. Balanced writing and some earnest opinions with some solid arguments. Keep it up.

    Apparently nobody knows who my favorite character is, so I'll have to change this.

    To me it's not just a matter of sheer length. One thing I really noticed playing Tsugumi's route in Ever 17 (the first time I played a VN route in full) is that I felt "closer" to Tsugumi than to most anime characters, even those with similar stories. I credit this to the combination of first person perspective (I've gotten angry at a VN villian in a way I've never felt angry at an anime villian too), the pacing, which was slower than in many anime, allowing me to really absorb the mindset and feelings of the characters, and route system, which meant that the arc I was reading was strongely focused on Tsugumi. And I suspect many VNs have similar perspective, pacing, and story structure qualities.

    Of course, one thing that gives me pause is I have seen some VN derived tsunderes be over the top and hammy too. Ever 17 and Steins;Gate are among the cream of the crop and may not actually be that representative of the medium.

    One other thing worth noting: many manga and LN based anime are based on incomplete source material. VN adaptations are usually based on VNs with a self-contained storyline.

    Top 5? Well - AnoHana is probably #1, but Wandering Son & S;G would definitely be on the list. Ikoku Meiro too. Usagi drop might be the 5th - I'have to think about it...

    Gave a quick comment on your blog post, simply because it reminded me of the experience/character that changed my outlook on tsundere a few years back.

    I saw your post on Google Reader, almost after I finished watching the episode this morning, and had written a reply to it, but apparently they've been neglected from food (again) so they made short work of my comment

    I had the good sense to copy it this time though, so here it is if your interested.


    Fascinating insight as usual. Though it wasn't the first thing on my mind once I finished watching the episode, what you wrote certainly explains why Christian had managed to grow on me.

    That said, the first thing that went into my head as the end credits rolled and Okabe was on the phone was this
    Spoiler for Dun Dun Dun!:

    I mustn't have been the only one to hum it once the screen cut to black

    The second was the mad love these two shared, arguably the central piece of the episode even shadowing a bit that killer cliffhanger. I think all what you wrote is true, and that she's-and her relationship with Okabe- a shining example of a character who's allowed to develop naturally, or as you aptly put it she came across as being an ''organic sentient life'' rather than a stereotype following instructions.

    I do agree with your point that trust was the most crucial reason why Kurisu had fallen for Okabe (though I'd argue that their occupation as scientists (even if one is a Mad one) was just as important, since it created an already established common ground between the two and make a zone for them to have their back and forth, helping bridge the gap between the two personality differences. That's a common problem I notice when a show tries to establish or develop a relationship between a tsundere and her love interest. There isn't really anything tying the two other than at most it's a crush and at worst they just keep running into each other).

    Either way, Vicky and Kujo just got knocked out for my favorite couple of the year. Moreso since both the characters here got their development naturally result in both growing fond of the other, while in the other it was mostly a single developed lead.

    Oh and,
    ''Do you want your KugRie Tsundere in green, white, or blue?''
    See I'm sort of surprised by this, since I was told they only came in black.

    Nice post. I couldn't agree more strongly that the tsundere is played out, and most depictions feel incredibly boring and derivative. But Kurisu has breathed new life into it in a big way, because she transcends any one trope.

    Hope you don't take the disagreement on the KamiDolls thread personally! I think you got a slightly inaccurate picture of my true position, which was probably my fault... But I enjoy debating you and I just wanted you to know I appreciate your posts.

    Hey mate. Just wanted to say thank you for the appreciation you gave me a while ago.

    *shrug* I've just had it with the apathy in several places. ISML, people I know IRL, other forums - it's really irking me. People just get slack or submissive when things don't go their way but aren't threatened in the immediate future. Then when someone tries to improve things, they whine because they think only their way is right, even thought they wouldn't get off their backsides and bother to do anything in the first place. I've really had it with people being so damn accepting of a situation they don't like. Yet trying to generate positive change/discussion only generates narcisism.

    I finally forced myself to watch all of Madoka. And...I can now safely say I despise it more than any other series I've ever watched. I don't think it's the worst thing ever made but it's the one I hate most. I will NEVER swallow the notion that deconstructing a genre is revolutionary. Certainly not the first title to parody the genre. Blatantly transplanting the story of Faust into this series is hardly original. The animation budget is calculatingly spread out - 19 mins of minimal action, if any, then 2-3 mins of clusterflock. The characters are as formulaic as they can get. The degree of character development is almost non-existent and the story is flimsy and darn predictable. Shinbo may be a prick and pathetic at managing a budget, but he knows what people want and how to give it to them. He knows what sells. I'll give him that - he hasn't made the #1 and #2 series that have the highest average of sales per volume in the 2000 onwards era (and #3 and #4 for all time) in anime by sheer dumb luck. He's very calculating - just like Anno was in the 90s. But meh, I'm done with thinking about that show. The thought this and Bakemonogatari are what makes the most people enthused about anime makes me sick. Homura being like Doctor Who and Madoka being like Faust - so freaking what...Why is it cheap sentimony/the most basic of emotions turn so many people into such suckers...That said, I have nothing against people who like that show. I just find it sad this is what people consider revolutionary and top echelon...

    Also struggled through Level E and Legend of the Legendary Heroes. Level E is the biggest troll I've ever seen. Seemed like it would have a good story but just acts like a random prick every minute - but the new generation loves a good troll...As for LOL Heroes, I've never seen a fantasy series be so boring and leave a story so unresolved. Clearly they were aiming for another on earth they thought this title deserved it is beyond me. The desecration of its characters, terrible CG, utterly holey story - it's extremely painful. Another series that would make my 10 most despised, for sure.

    Usagi Drop is still a decent show but nothing spectacular. I think I'll give Stein's;Gate another look - but it had better get to the point quickly....two season series that stuff around because they have more time to play with drive me insane. As for October, I have some hope but I won't get enthused until I see the material.

    You need to take over before Vince Russo does.

    Or God forbid, Mari Okada.
