    My comments were not meant to describe the SoL genre (If you can even call it that) as one people watch only to cry. I was referring more to certain comments and responses I've heard from people about being desensitized to Ano Hana, so they find themselves unable to enjoy it supposedly, which I just found disagreeable.

    Clearly, anime has changed over the last few decades, and I'll be one of the first people to tell you that there were very few enjoyable titles in 2009 and 2010, but I'd have to disagree with your assertions about retro anime being so "great."

    Back in the day, old anime had just as many tropes and crappy cliche plots. The good rule to remember is that 90% of everything is shit. Going back in the past and picking out the few gems out of the years means nothing when you forget about all the bull shit that was produced during those years.

    Of course depending on the times, certain types of anime were more prolific than others. Mecha and action used to have a heavier focus in the past.

    However, this doesn't take anything away from modern anime. It seems you are not enjoying the 2011 season at all, an odd time to pick to complain about anime considering the last two years IMO. I don't know what you enjoy, but you may just be looking for something totally different (Hence why you went for retro anime).

    But honestly, if you as an anime fan can't find anything to enjoy this season, I say you're just not trying hard enough. There's a good quality anime of almost every genre being produced at the moment (Or at least watchable). I feel 2011 has turned around the derailing anime industry of the last 2 years, but to each their own.

    Sorry, I'm not opposed to retro anime, but neither I am to modern anime. I will watch both because I am a fan of both.

    In the past, it seems to take 1 month for effect of new season to show up in ISML results. A good example is 2009 Katsura Hinagiku where it took about a month from the start of the new season for Hinagiku to go from borderline Final 16 to 11th seed, and then another month for her to move on to beat Shana. Since Shana is likely top 4 character, already, a month of new material may be just enough. Still, I would feel more sure if Shana got 2 month of new material instead of 1 by the time of SE final phase. More importantly, though, it isn't just about Shana. It is that while the chance of Kanade getting new material is low, chance for other top 9 characters getting new materials is high. The law of average suggests that Kanade's chance isn't as good as people perceive right now.

    I see what you mean. It would be kind of pointless to watch something only to fall asleep, and that's perhaps my biggest complaint on Aria and why I found So-Ra-No-Wo-To more enjoyable despite its lack of severity. And hey, if you feel like the NHK has just invaded your mind, I'd say Takimoto's done his job correctly.

    Do you have something similar to an MAL or Anime Planet? I find it hard to say anything about what you listed when I have no idea how much or what you've watched.

    It won't be easy for Kanade to win the tiara. ISML history, as well as data from other moe tournament suggests that those that wins in the end are more likely to be those that stays in the middle of the pack until about 70% mark where they start their move to the top. The usual reason is that some character receives late boosts due to some new materials airing and win the whole thing before other characters can make the neccessary adjustments. In this light I suggested Kuroneko as most likely winner, thinking Ore Imo will get 2nd season in 2011 October. Since that is unlikely to come true, I have to consider Shana as the most likely to win, since her 3rd season WILL start on 2011 October, giving her almost a month worth of new materials before the Final SE phase starts. The only problem is, Shana has been marked as perennial runner up by too many people and this may make people vote against her, just for the fun of it, starting from quarter-finals. Even if Shana don't win the tiara, I don't think Kanade can win unless she gets a new OVA episode or at least some announcements of some official game and books that includes new images of Kanade which gives new things for people to talk about her. if Kanade don't get any new supporting materials, the chances are very likely for other powerful characters to receive significant amount of quality new materials within next 4 month and upset her. There just is too many powerful characters and too much time left for this to not happen.

    well guess I need to write an apologia

    1. Absolute number of ISML votes not from top 2 countries in voting has steadily gone up. This number for 2011 is bigger than ever. The statement is true even if you say votes not from top 3 countries.

    2. If you check the previous records for KBM, Super Best Moe, Chinese Saimoe, and Japanese Saimoe, you will find that kuudere-like submissive types tends to lose to tsundere types or those with more complicated personalities. KBM is repeatedly accused of being Best Tsundere Tournament instead of Best Moe Tournament. I do like to mention that KBM and Super Best Moe still holds record for most voters in a match that was open to International voters with 3 or more languages supported, thus shouldn't be left out in discussion of moe tournaments. Please also note that 2007 Super Best Moe was the spark that lead to creation of ISML.
    3. As I repeated mentioned, I grew up in the 1970s watching anime, many which going back to 1960s and one, 1950s. I did try to engage people on the oldies by having historical characters in 2010 ISML exhibition. The main reason I seldom mention those series is because few wants to hear about them.
    4. The 2 key Kanade moments are likely to be the last Kanade scene in ep 1, and also ep 5. It portrayed Kanade as lonely person who may be being misunderstood by the SSS members. They left a lasting impression on many, especially those who are more likely to be moved by visual cues instead of dialogues and plot advancements. It is rather clear that in AB, Nakamura Yuri is the one who sets things in motion. Whatever the reason, these plot movers don't seem to get the attention they deserve, whether in Western or Eastern worlds. In contrast, those that somehow stumble upon right combination of cute visual and catch phrases enjoy much adulations of fans. Still, I think most of winners of moe tournaments do possess some qualities that is worth pondering, even though it might take sometime before you can realize that those qualities exists.
