    I realize it’s been two weeks since my last post on this… my apologies, I the courseload I have right now is much worse than I had in undergrad. Anyway:
    I was actually using loli in the “12 and under” kind of sense (although I guess Yune is supposed to be 13), but a conversation between Ayana Taketatsu (Kirino) and Kana Hanazawa (Kuroneko) during the Ore no Imouto radio program suggests that describing Alice as a loli is perfectly valid in Japan. Ditto Azusa, etc. So I don’t find the usage problematic:

    (I love this clip. Especially the bit about Yuuki Aoi.) I actually want to finish up Kamisama no Memochou but my girlfriend and I are watching it together and we keep getting sidetracked by other stuff.

    Boku wa Tomodachi… hoping the show itself is better than the OVA. Aside from learning what the title translates to and the “yes, we went there” bit, it was actually a bit painful in a “I feel stupider for watching” kind of way. And I didn’t feel that way about Ro-Kyu-Bu, which basically made a running gag out of loli-harem antics that end with a “does this look sketchy to you?” moment. That’s pretty bad. I mean, seriously, one of the final scenes in the Ro-kyu-bu involves Tomoka trying to cheer Subaru up by showing up in a maid outfit and saying she’ll do whatever he wants, and his request is that she do a jump shot in the maid uniform. I can’t make this stuff up.

    For reference, I didn’t really read up on BwT before airing and I rarely do… as a moe fan, I feel obligated to give most shows a chance to prove themselves, so I end up playing “moe roulette” at the start of each season. Usually end up taking at least a few bullets.

    I think that Reckoner mentioned liking Maji no Watashi, which is a good sign since his standards for such shows are higher than mine.

    Can't do that. Check this thread for why. From what I can tell, reposting it is no use; I'll probably earn an infraction from it, at best.

    I've already fired off a PM to urge them to reconsider this. In the meantime, you can find the same link in my sig.

    Going to answer for Triple_R here... although these come from Memories rather than Melodies.

    (Somewhat NSFW, hopefully Tinypic doesn't decided to take the first one down before you see it)
    Melodies has some similar bits IIRC.

    Edit:
    -okay, just remembered the "artist girl" scene in Melodies... that's probably what Triple_R is talking about. That's a little less intimate and a little more... "exhibitionist" than the stuff in Memories was. Plus a couple OP bits and the laundary scene (in a way). So yeah, with the exception of the OP, the eroticism early in Melodies is more playful, whereas the eroticism in Memories tends to be more artistic (as does Melodies OP IMO).

    ef: A Tale of Memories has two plots running side-by-side, with one romance in each one. Both plots are pretty good, and make for good romance drama and suspense. They utilize very nice plot devices and SHAFT's visual style to maximum effectiveness. I highly recommend it.

    ef: A Tale of Melodies I've only watched a little bit of so far. This anime is pretty erotic in many scenes, I have to say, lol. It's not quite as good as Memories, but its pretty good so far, and it has that Denpa Onna fun quality to it, if you know what I mean.


    Oh, and great review of Usagi Drop. You said so much there that I wasn't sure how to respond, lol.

    I don't really post on the thread anymore (because of my manga knowledge etc) but yes, I keep track of Kaiji's episode.
    As I expected, the arc is dragged with all its details, to the point it is quite -too lengthy-, similar to the manga (although the manga is even slower than that).

    I have always been under the belief that they should rename themselves Faux News.

    I'm willing to bet that your user title will revert back within no more than a week. :P

    That's an interesting compliment since I tend to think I approach to moe is probably more art than science - my favoured approach is to illustrate by example rather than try and explain it technically.

    I should get around to updating my thread again, I've just been really busy with going back for a postgraduate degree (living away from home this time too). Until I get around to it though, my new favourites this summer are Tomoka from Ro-Kyu-Bu (her crush on Subaru is cute), Yune from Ikoku Meiro no Croisee, and Utao from Kamisama Dolls (because of the way she relates to her Kakashi as some kind of giant pet). Strangely for me, they're all loli characters - I notice I've been noticing MILF/Christmas cake type series a lot more in a few older shows I've been watching, which may be a way of counterbalancing that.

    Most anticipate to me for fall would be
    Shana III (long time coming)
    C3 (Shin Oonuma is directing, so I have to watch even if I'm pretty sure it won't match up to his work on EF - plus it has girls who are moe anthromorphizations of torture devices)
    Mirai Nikki (always wanted to read the manga but never got a chance)
    Guilty Crown (Production IG takes a crack at a Code Geass/Death Note style show, apparently).
    Last Exile (although I'm never going to have time to finish the original before it airs)
    Shinryaku Ika-Musume II: Toss up... the first season was a brilliant sleeper-hit comedy, but I'm not sure how they'll follow it up.
    Fate/Zero: I'm not as big a Type-Moon fan as many but I'm not missing this.
    Boku no Tomodachi ga Suknai/Mashiro-iro Symphony: Obligatory "I don't think these will actually be that good, but I saved picture of the characters at one time because I liked the designs and now I want to know about them" picks. Hey, I picked up Utawarerumono and Sola due to the pretty character designs back in the day so I occassionally win.
    Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA: because once I got a few episode in, I couldn't get enough of the original.

    The greatest lie is to convince people that the world is a dangerous place and a zero sum game where you are never safe. Distrust others and fight them for scraps, while the real enemy that spreads this lie takes the whole pie.
