    I can't exactly blame them (at least, not all of them), since it is a given there is another extreme at work: some people are pretty abrasive when it comes to criticism, even watching shows that won't be to their liking.
    Hell, we had members who had to "crash the party" when a series is too popular and/or from a specific anime studio / directed by a specific individual.

    To me, anime series in general generate a bipolar audience, and it becomes apparent that "you must be in a side: either you are with us, or with 'them'" trop is being more present over the years. I'm pretty sure this trend was there ever since late 2000, but it becomes quite apparent since 2010 imho.

    The fun fact is that I'm probably being tagged as a SAO hater, despite I'm actually interested in the game setup.
    I don't particularly aim for having the last word, but I always respond to people arguments when it comes to facts. Interpretations are a different matter, obviously.

    Pretty good and fair assessment you wrote of the first episode of SAO II and the Sailor Moon remake. I agree with you on how both shows seem to be aiming a fair bit for comedy so far.

    With SAO II, I like how the game is a gritty gun-based one. That's a nice change of pace from elf-world.

    I found the first episode of Sailor Moon 2014 pretty good. As a teenager, I sometimes enjoyed just chilling out to Sailor Moon. It was a fun watch, nothing to take all that seriously (much like DBZ). It'll probably continue to deliver simple enjoyment for me.

    And thanks for the doujin you linked to! I just finished the first Chapter, and it looks promising so far. Very nice artwork and I like the foreign otaku nature of one of the characters.

    Just so you know, July 12th (the second Saturday in July, this year) is a local festivity, and my family is fairly busy with it. The festivity also started early yesterday with parades and fireworks. So I'm going to be pretty busy until tomorrow noon or so. I'll try to get back to your latest VMs and PMs around then.

    I have to admit it's a bit surprising how "heavy duty" the comments on the SM remake have been (I haven't got into SAO II yet, so I can't comment on that yet). But I guess that one issue is that SM seems to be attracting a larger audience, at least here on AS, than Love Live! did. As popular as Love Live! is in Japan, it doesn't seem to have caught on as much with western audiences.

    I mean, for whatever reason, even some AS friends of mine who tend to go for moe haven't watched LL! yet. I guess that the idol concept is so alien to many westerners that it's hard to get into a show all about a subcategory of that - School Idol.

    Magical girls are a bit more accepted, though, because they're fairly similar to superheroes, which are all the rage in the west right now. So more people watch Sailor Moon, but the more people you add to an audience the harder it is to please everybody.

    It's one of the worst incidents ever to hit Atlantic Canada. However, it's a different province than mine, and I don't think any of the victims was somebody I knew. Still, far too close for comfort...

    Thanks for the VM.

    We're talking about the new promo vid available here. From what I gathered, it was just released, and it's now up on YouTube.

    I don't think it's terrible or anything. Actually, some of it is very nice. I just don't like how the characters' legs look.

    By the way, good Visitor Message on Sakura Trick. I've had it stalled for awhile now, due to a certain tiredness with... I guess you could call "pure moe"... over the last little while. It's not just Sakura Trick, it's also left me stalling some other "fluffier" shows. I'm sure I'll be in the mood for them eventually, and once I am, I'll finish off Sakura Trick. It is a cute and funny show.

    I'm actually getting tired of superhero movies now. Back around when Tobey Maguire was playing Spider-Man, they were great. Very exciting. Wonderful to see these beloved characters of my kid/teenage years on the big screen.

    But Marvel is seriously overdoing it, and DC is getting overly desperate in playing catch-up. Marvel is probably simply running out of good ideas for these movies, and it's probably starting to show.

    And while I loved X-Men as a kid, and the first couple of X-Men movies, the franchise has almost always been a bit too dependent on a few key characters (Xavier, Wolverine, Cyclops, Magneto). And yeah, the female character side of the franchise could definitely use some work. Maybe more Emma Frost would have helped.

    Thanks for your recent anime recommendations, by the way.

    Long time no read~!

    I'm sure you've probably heard already, but

    If this was Mark's retirement match, it wasn't a good way to go. It just felt anticlimatic and surprising at the same time. It wasn't convincing.

    Ric Flair had a better last match against HBK back at WM24.

    Flair.

    Seriously.

    And of course, Lesnar isn't working. Again. Meanwhile with the CM Punk chants...
