    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

    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).

    Anyway:
    -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:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu

    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.

    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.
