    Well the LB thread is almost 40 pages now. I expect it to be at least 100 before the damn thing actually airs lol. Unfortunately, people don't read read beyond the latest page so things are being repeated over and over again.

    Shinokawa Shioriko from Biblia Koshodou no Jiken-Techou. You can read more about it in the referenced link in this referenced post .

    She's a bibliophile and makes me wish I live next to an old bookstore with a pretty, well endowed, and shy owner .

    Poor you . You seem to be getting a lot of flak for "apparently" defending JC Staff, which you aren't really. I do understand your points. However, I think you're overlooking one thing: the production staff in charge. Now if this was Nagai or Kasai directing with Okada or Kuroda on series composition (Toradora, Ano Natsu, old noitamina staff) then I can be somewhat assured it might be decent. However, LB has a bunch of no-namers of the project. Now that's why at least for me, it's concerning.

    However, I'm more mad (well not really, I'm more loling at the point) at Kyoani for pretty much thinking they are beyond Key and declining the offer. They have now effectively abandoned FMP and Key fans, and who knows when the next Haruhi anime will be. They'll probably make more K-on though since that's their flagship franchise now.

    haha! Sarcasm is becoming a lot art where internet is concerned. I hope you weren't mistaken as royalties since you were the only had an umbrella up in a rare sunny day.

    As far as who is the studio is going to be, who else but KyoAni will concoct such infuriating marketing gimmick to drive up speculation. I'm just glad nobody threw Makoto Shinkai in there.

    Yatta! Good to have you!

    NP ... Tamayura is not for everyone in general, but I remember other people mentioning that it took a while for it to grow on them as well.

    There have been 4 BD eps released if curious, btw....

    But being different isn't the entire reason why I think Guilty Crown might sync well with most newcomers. It has a nice looking world, with...
    That's a good point, and you could be quite right. The only reason I stated my opinion as I did is because of my experience after being out of anime for a year or two. Even as someone with days' worth of viewing time behind me, I had a hard time coming back. As I think I've already mentioned to you, I gently got back into it by going with a show that was a bit less... stereotypically anime. From that experience, my thought was that people could probably grow to enjoy anime. It's just a matter of getting around shocking them first.

    But I guess it was a silly thing to say Everyone is different, and everyone will have an ideal gateway series that is different from everyone else. The premise of Guilty Crown would probably appeal to quite a number of people, and the artwork and animation are sure to hold people's eyes. I suppose it would make for a good gateway.

    Of course, it all comes down to how the thing was managed, and honestly ... I never felt like I had come to care for Shu like I might have felt with different protagonists in similar shows, because while his changes where justifiable, I always felt like he took each change to the end of the spectrum.
    I agree with your take on the message of the series (which I didn't quote here). You have a nice way of stating the big picture stuff - you did something similar with the explanation behind Arisa I connected with Shu, and interpreted his behaviors a bit differently. From the start I didn't view him as wallowing in self-pity, so much as pondering his life. When he started to rule with an iron fist, it seemed to me that he did so with pain; he still cared for everyone. I found that segment to be particularly fascinating, actually, as I was thinking about styles of leadership a few days before I watched it. And when he came back, I felt that it was a matter of him making peace with himself, and making peace with the idea that he would sacrifice himself for everyone else.

    And for your next post, perhaps it's unfair of me to say that outer analysis is bad. If looking at the overall message behind the series and things like symbolism interpretation counts as analysis, then I do it too. I suppose my frustration arises when it seems like people are more concerned with analyzing the execution of the show than with the show itself... does that make any sense? Maybe it doesn't, and I just don't like it when people harp on a show and pick it apart. I don't really know.
