    Merry Christmas to you too! Hope it's more eventful for you than it is for Tokiomi.

    I really liked your second last VM on Reckoner's wall. I'm liking Fate/Zero a lot, but your critique of it beautifully sums up my issues with it thus far.

    Well, except that I don't have a big problem with Kiritsugu and Kotomine right now. Their feud perhaps needs more development, but other than that, I'm content with their characterization thus far.

    Still, it's only natural that Saber and Rider would be getting most of the focus, because they're the characters that are doing the most on a consistent basis.

    No, if you mouse over it, credit goes to ganbaru for making it... I'm not really very arty

    You know, your views on Fate/Zero seem to really reflect the side of the viewers of the show that don't have any VN knowledge or LN knowledge, so I'm rather quite surprised to hear you say the same things. To me, a lot of the issues like even giving a damn about Kotomine for example are all related to knowing, and understanding his end result in HF of Fate/Zero. I though that given you had seen this material at last that perhaps you'd be far more into his character in the anime like I know many of the novel/VN readers are. Though I guess for many there is an acknowledgement sense of detachment from what they're watching for many viewers. I guess it depends on each person's intrinsic interest in the type of characterization and philosophy and atmosphere being used in the show. Personally I love it, but I can see why others don't.

    As for the episode 11 reactions. I think many people love Rider a lot and because they see the other characters as "boring" they think that means they're in the wrong for thinking that way. Personally while Rider's speech was powerful, I completely understand and sympathize with Saber's ideal. Though I think you are blowing out of proportion the amount of people who want to bash Saber. I guess people don't really understand why Saber would listen to Shirou more than Rider since he gave such a great speech.

    ------

    My updates for the season.

    Mirai Nikki --> Just too low of production values plus a plotline that has ran out the laughs of so absurd it's entertaining. Dropped.

    Boku wa TOmodachi/Haganai --> Ran itself into the ground. Incredibly mediocre at this point. Dropped.

    It's scary how many of my favorite anime characters are on your two lists.

    However, I guess I just expect a certain level of drama in anime, and so anime characters doing things that create needless drama (being drama queens or male characters that take difficult paths) is something I roll with. As much as I love Kamina, for example, I don't think I'd want to be friends with somebody like that in real life, because he'd become awfully tiresome after awhile. But it's that sort of "larger than life" and real loud personality that I like in fictional characters. I look at it the same way I do pro wrestlers - being entertaining is more important than being someone I'd want to be friends with.

    As for Tomoya, I admit you have a good point with how he treated Ushio. Yeah, that really bothered me as well. However, I'm a firm believer you can't really help falling in love with a person... but given your take on Nagisa, I can understand how this doesn't really help your assessment of Tomoya.

    Though I consider Kyon to be a good character, it's nice to see somebody else realize that the dude can be every bit as hard to deal with as Haruhi is (just in different ways), so their conflicts are a two-way street. Kyon isn't as innocent in their personality conflicts as some people make him out to be.

    Oh, and I pretty much agree with you on Kuroko (she's the main reason why I dropped Railgun, lol), Mikuru and Renton Thurston. Some other characters on your two lists I don't care much about either way.


    Anyway, thanks for the response. If nothing else, your honesty and frankness are refreshing. You're certainly not afraid to knock down some of the most popular anime shows and characters around, but you don't troll about it either. You're simply honest and up-front about your assessments and tastes, and it would be cool if more anime fans were like that.

    Just noticed that you expressed satisfaction over Tomoya losing in ISML. What's wrong with Tomoya? I thought he was a really great character. Mind you, I don't think I've ever read your take on Clannad or its characters, so there's a lot I probably don't know here.

    I'm with you on F/Z vs. Infinite Stratos. Even with the box set release issue factored in, F/Z falling short of IS would look pretty bad.

    Also, thanks for pointing out the specific reasons why Brotherhood didn't hit the success of the original FMA anime.

    You seemed to be a fairly interesting person since you were having very long and detailed conversation with Reckoner, a member whom I respect. Also, you and I had a quick exchange in this thread about how Madoka Magica apparently polarizes the different generations of anime fans.

    Now that we're at it, I'm curious to know from you what the older generations of fans dislike about MadoMagi. Groups of young girls drawn in cutesy art styles have been a ubiquitous element of magical girl anime since at least Sailor Moon, so I doubt that that's the reason. Reception from older fans on Animesuki have generally been positive, so it seems that you've had a different experience. Speaking of which, I checked your MAL, and from the incredibly low rating you gave MadoMagi, it seems like you may be part of this older generation you claim to generally despise MadoMagi. I won't hold it against you for rating it a "1", as no anime deserves to be universally respected, but I do wonder what bad cord it struck with you. And to strengthen your point can you please point me in the direction of a magical girl anime that older fans generally like?

    lulz. At one point it goes beyond hating and they are "no longer human", just vehicles of anger, rage, and butthurt.

    10 wasn't bad; loli rin is cute and all, though I was kinda laughing at our fearsome serial killer getting his ass handed to him by a little girl. Though it was on the fillerish side, but little girls named Rin have been good characters this year.

    11 was better; a good discussion of character motivation. Rider and Gilgamesh dealing with drinks is funny and my favorite part was when assasins refused Rider's drink, leading to the ultimate ability to protect Waver. Rider is definitely a much better person than his real life counterpart. Gilgamesh is funny and a jackass, as usual.

    The only issue was that the animation quality was poor, and 11 had some off model moments. Ufotable needs to learn how to move the camera more. It seems they don't know what to do, which leads to stuff like people walking around a table.

    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
