    And in turn I'm not that surprised you suspected she was my favourite.

    The comparison with Rin and Hitagi is as much about personality as appearance. Between Rin and Hitagi, Satsuki reminds me a lot more of Hitagi - perhaps with a bit of Kamina thrown in. But I think all three are powerful, elegant and have a good mix of "calm and collected" and "fiery". I was also trying to hint- perhaps a bit too subtly - that these sorts of characters a) have a history of appearing alongside cuter characters and b) are probably liked by many of the same people who like those cute characters. Ie. my usual argument that fans have broader and more nuanced tastes than they're often given credit for.

    I do agree she's one of the most interesting and nuanced characters in the show.

    (Edit: obligatory moe analysis of Satsuki... I'm going to try running through about four different ways of defining moe here. 1) Bloom/"sparkle" (thank you Hanasaku Iroha!) definition: Yes. Wild Rose, anyone? 2) "Intense admiration" definition: Yes, even though she's kind of a fascist. That she's portrayed sympathetically helps here. 3) "Warm and fuzzy feeling" definition: Weak, she doesn't really have a warmer/cuter side like Rin and even Hitagi do. 4) Protective feelings/vulnerability definition: I'm inclined to say weak though this is tricky - she's has a tragic backstory, but she carries it so well that I don't end up feeling the same way as I do for say, Iriya or Kotomi.)

    (BTW, while she doesn't really watch KlK, my girlfriend likes Satsuki... my girlfriend's favourite older anime is probably Utena so that may explain part of the appeal.)

    By comparison, I find Ryuuko a little too "meatheaded" for my taste. Mako strikes me as similar to a character like Yui* - I like her as a comedic character, but not really my type. (*Actually, I think that if you dropped Eru from Hyouka in Kill la Kill, I think that - social status aside - the result would end up like Mako, but that end result is also more Yui than Eru.) And she actually faces some stiff competition from other KlK characters for the best comedic character spot - Gamagoori would be a definite contender, which might explain part of why people like to ship them.

    I like long straight hair though not to the extent that its occurrence on my favourites list would suggest. If I whip up a quick "top five waifu" list, you get Kuroneko, Hanekawa, Matsuri, Azusa (the K-On! one) and Horo. That's what... 60%? Maybe 70% if you give half credit for when Azusa has her hair down. However, I like Azusa and (assuming we're talking her season one look) Hanekawa's regular hairstyles a lot too. And outside that top five list, I also absolutely adore the way Zakuro in Otome Youkai Zakuro mixes twintails and ribbons while still striking an appropriate balance between cute and elegant for her character.

    Of the straight haired girls, I probably feel the most strongly about it in regards to Kuroneko. It's tricky to explain, but I supposed I could say she has such a strong "traditional Japanese beauty" look that it would be a shame for her to wear it any other way?

    (Wait... I just remembered that I also dig Zakuro with her hair down. Damn it.)

    Finally got caught up with KlK - I've been watching that one with friends and we had about a four week gap in our regular screenings due to various circumstances.

    I'm curious as to whether you find my choice of favourite character surprising:

    It was a really bad DS9 episode, but after watching Little Busters, I can't help but burst out in laughter.

    well that as well as the madoka magica the other story manga. the last chapter sort of gave the pairing a more feasible possibility, with how sayaka was a bit playful and teasing homura to loosen up.

    also, ive been using this avatar and signature before actually, just in a different forum.

    I'll keep that in mind, not sure when I'll have time to get around to it though.

    Urobuchi and the director of Ga-rei Zero do an original anime. Now, I realize he also worked as a director on the Fate/Zero adaptation, but some how the pairing seems fitting.

    Edit: Also, my mandatory comment when Inari KonKon come up... Touka x Uka OTP.

    Funny you stopped at ep 3... I've been mostly fast forwarding through 4 and 5
    Still, I'd have to give it at least another episode to decide myself if the drama's good enough to warrant watching more seeing how ep5 ended on a dramatic cliffhanger.

    If all she gets is a slap in the wrist and a "be more careful", I'm out Her wish has so much dramatic potential that part of me is happy that they seem to finally want to explore that path, but the skeptical side of me doesn't believe they'll stray from the fluffy/happy theme too much.

    I'll let you know next week :P Right now my advice is: Don't bother catching up.

    Regarding our last little comment-chat about Inari Kon Kon, after the latest episode I expect Inari to take a little heat about her wish

    Spoiler for Inari Kon Kon's latest ep:

    Well, I've never watched He-Man, so does that even the score?

    FotNS has ~25 episodes of boring, ~25 episodes of buddy cops (Rei is my favorite character from the series), and the remaining ~50 episodes are moving the plot forward. None of the major characters are challenged that often, but when they are, it sticks out. And for an anime dominated by muscle-jacked men, it's surprisingly affectionate at times. I watched it out of sheer boredom, there's probably better action shows out there (coughBirdytheMightyDecodecough), but for something nostalgic and full of panache, FotNS has it. If you find it gives you the same feel as He-Man, then go for it. My only advice is to stop after the first 108 episodes, 'cause everything after that, as I've heard, is the Z to this Dragonball.

    And if nothing else, Fist of the North Star has the most mind-blowing action ever. /rimshot.

    Run Triple! It's the Skirt Length Committee and they're after a new anime!

    /drops marbles all over the place

    Also Eroking has misplaced something for you on Pocari's wall, I think.
