    That was a great post. Good job. Yeah, I think that anime writers often take the easy way out by focusing on a *deeply* flawed character (spineless male lead wimp, incredibly harsh Type A tsundere) and then developing them... because there's nowhere for them to go but up.

    It's trickier to take a character that starts only with relatively minor flaws, but you find a nuanced way of developing them anyway.

    If you use sarcasm all the time nobody will know when you're serious. D: It will be like the boy who cried wolf.

    If you think trolling is bad then why do you do it so much.

    Ouch, SC2 sounds harsh. Never played that one, stopped after Warcraft 3 and Diablo 2 up until now. Though as far as channels and communication goes, Diablo 3 hasn't really improved much in that regard, has it?

    Yeah, I think this misunderstanding she caused was enough for me to make me realize it was no longer worth it. And yeah, was an online acquaintance, but the distance wasn't terribly bad--only Nevada. Basically she was just being extremely literal about the "not dating" phrase, even her husband thought that was odd. Luckily he didn't seem angry about the whole thing, which in itself is an improvement over what usually happens in that regard...

    So yeah, just need to get my emotions in order and move on. I've had enough bitterness about such things in the past to last me a lifetime already.

    Those gems sound useful. My jeweler level is only as far as Radiant triangle gems currently, and that's already too damn expensive. Bleh.

    Huh. California here as well. And yeah, I was around since Diablo 1, but I guess the server situation then was because of inferior internet technology. Maybe. I don't pretend to understand it, really.

    The drama happened over the game, actually--the girl I like plays as well, but she had the nerve to tell me she wasn't dating the other guy she was playing with, so when she discovered my continued interest in her (which was only mentioned to the other guy involved due to what she said), she flipped. Turns out they were married. Bah. It's mostly avoidance at this point.

    I haven't been on, actually--little drive to play due to avoiding the drama that unfolded over it a few days back. *sigh* Women...

    That does remind me that I probably should've asked what server you use, though. I'm on the Americas currently.

    I would say Chihayafuru, Sakamichi and Tsuritama in no special order. And the next tier (also in no special order) E7 AO, Ano Natsu, Natsume Shi, MGX, Jormungand and Uchuu Kyoudai.

    Now that I’ve finished answering Demisoda’s query about what kind of female characters I like including the requisite odd to Kuroneko (feel free to make comments), I can answer your question. Though I must not that to me “favourite fanservice in moe anime” isn’t necessarily the same as what I’d consider my favourite “moe fanservice”, though there is some overlap. Because I’m a bit of a purist in regards to “moe fanservice”. To qualify, a scene must effectively combine a “moe hit” – ie. charm or bewitch the viewer – with eroticism.

    It is extremely rare that an anime pulls this off effectively.

    Right off the bat, you can eliminate almost any fanservice that is more comedic than erotic. Likewise, almost all over displays of sexuality are out, because the sexual element cannot be allowed to overpower the “charm” element and frequently does. Furthermore, an erotic scene that happens to be soothing or romantic at the same time does not necessarily qualify, there must be an honest to god “moe hit” in the scene. Few scenes qualify

    So with that in mind, here’s my top three – I suspect you’re familiar with all of them.
    1) I’ll start off with by far the most explicit scene of the three… Akira slipping into the bath with Haruka in episode 5 of Yosuga no Sora. The little bit of shyness on Akira’s part combines with her normally energetic personality in a really cutesy way and provides an effective moe hit, and of course “girl slips into your bath” is just classic erotic fantasy.
    2) The aforementioned bit with Eru leaning over the table in a way that ever so slightly emphasizes her body. Kyoto’s fluid animation has always given Eru a little bit of a moe “special sauce” – her energetic movements are adorable – and her it gives her a bit of an erotic appeal as well.
    3) Matsuri lying on top of a pill of fresh blankets with Yorito and kicking her legs back and forth in episode 6 of Sola. I think Sheba has had an avatar of it from time to time. The context helps, as the surrounding scene really emphasizes Matsuri’s cutesy, slightly flirtatious, slightly erotic behavior. Plus, short skirt and kneesocks. And Noto Mamiko.

    Looking at that list, I’d say energetic personalities and subtle, cutesy flirtation (demonstrated by Matsuri, but I’d say Kuroneko is good at it too) and energetic, cutesy movements that are somehow also erotic are the most effective tactics.

    (BTW, did that whole speil make me sound like a creepy pervert?)
