    It's an original artwork off the boorus, but I swear this reminds me of a character from Ano Hana.

    Even though I haven't seen it yet. O_o

    So apparently Im an idiot in that not only did I post to my own wall, but then I somehow missed posting the message to your wall before deleting the accidental post (normally I just copy and paste the text to the right location).

    -Since 2009, there have been seven Infinite Stratos novels publishing, of which six were around when season one was made. And thats not exactly uncommon for light novels. Which was kind of my point: I get the impression many light novel series are padded, resulting in weak anime adaptations especially if the series is ongoing.

    Its hard to think of an overtly Canadian anime character. Im only really thinking of Kate from Sketchbook, and her depiction always struck me as intending to be more endearing than insulting:

    Im not sure where the stereotype about British food being terrible comes from, but its pretty well known. Personally though, I think Case Marzu trumps anything the Brits have come up with:

    She refuses to even watch YnS. Not entirely sure why since shes never shown any adversion to anything else based on explicitness.

    Are we talking about this picture of Sena?
    Im kind of surprised how much Ive ended up liking Sena in the end, my initial reaction to her was kind of guess they felt the need to throw in an otaku girl.

    Especially on episode 25

    No lol, it was a very memorable tune itself that played during one of the best moments near the end.

    Though that arc dragged...

    It's funny that you mentioned that about Escaflowne, because that's part of the reason I had a hard time getting into it (the similarities between it and El Hazard).

    There's so few anime shows that literally take their characters into another world that when you see one, you tend to think of another. Maybe that's why there's not more of these.

    I appreciate your comments on Fate/Zero mainly because they're different, and well-stated. There's a considerable general consensus that's surrounding that show, and so it's nice to read different opinions on it, particularly from someone who's liking the show, just for different reasons than a lot of people do.

    lol on Triple H vs. Alexander/Iskander. That would indeed be great. Watching them in a duel of words in the middle of the ring would be fun too. Rider really does have a great personality for pro wrestling.

    As for Kamen Rider, I'm vaguely familiar with it (mainly due to comparisons I've seen between it and Madoka Magica, lol), but I haven't seen it. I might check it out though if you think it's worth a watch.

    By the way, did you watch any El Hazard after, as per our bet? I'd be curious to know your take on it. Don't be worried if it's mostly critical. It has some flaws even in my eyes, to be sure.

    I don't know. The thing is, I get the impression from a lot of Fate fans that their expectations are almost too high for this adaption. Must I really subject them to the horrible experiences of the DEEN renditions of this universe to show just what the level of difference is again? I don't know. I just can't see any other studio giving us a better job than Ufotable has so far, and they really know how to get a lot out of the material.

    I felt a lot of the criticism surrounding Kiritsugu's handling in this series has been a little off the mark simply because although his character hasn't been fully established for the audience to completely understand, there's been enough things put in there for us to be interested in going forward while they have used the time elsewhere to develop our more colorful characters like Saber, Irisviel, Rider.

    I don't know. Perhaps Ufotable set the bar up too high when they said this would match Kara no Kyoukai is quality and people expected a TV series to somehow match the streamline quality of movies/OVA's.

    You could thank loli Rin episode for sucking up this episode's budget. That was exactly why I was annoyed. At least it'll be fixed on the blue ray, which is the final product anyways that people will remember years down the line. Though I don't think there was anything wrong with the reality marble scene for Rider. That looked pretty good for me.

    But for me I've enjoyed every episode but the last one, coming from a huge Rin fan, so that's basically where I stand. I presume the second cour will be stronger than the first though.

    I basically attribute it to light novel authors, having a tendency to drag out their works - combined with the tendency to adapt incomplete series, this is easily one of my biggest pet peeves about anime ATM, since it tends to result in weak climaxes. I've seen a lot of light novel adaptations crash and burn after the first arc (AKA first novel), Infinite Stratos is a little weird because it was actually the second novel that was the good part.

    For reference:
    Novel 1 - introduces Houki, Cecilia and Rin
    Novel 2 - introduces Charlotte, Laura
    Novel 3 - silver gospel arc
    Novel 4, chapters 3 and 4 - merged into the OVA, although skimming the translation the order of events differs.

    Also, I have to say, that you managed to render one exchange from the OVA like 10X funnier for me:
    "I wish to demonstrate my skills as the representative of Great Britain!"
    "The British people would find your representation of them troublesome."

    Exams aren't quite over yet, I'm just feeling comfortable with starting to be back here a bit again. The ones I've taken have gone well although my writing is probably a bit sloppy structure wise since most of the tests are designed such that they can't be completely answered in the time allowed.

    Thanks. You made some good point in that thread as well.
