    Kazusa finally appears in episode 2 but then the episode ended. Blast. It was a pretty good follow up though!

    If you mean what I think you mean when you say EF is Shakespearean, perhaps our reasons for liking it aren't so different after all. I feel like Sola might have had a bit of that going on too. It's hardly the only style of "moe and melodrama" I like, but it certainly stands out from the crowd. Though in the case of EF, I'd personally also credit the effectiveness of a few select scenes and the fact Chihiro and Yuuko's stories seem a bit more granted than your typical "moe and melodrama" as part of the reason the show is so good.

    (My other "moe and melodrama" favourite is Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu, mainly because its the rare moe and melodrama flick that can work as a shot of adrenline.)
    (Also, I'm still not sure why you disliked Yosuga no Sora so much given that it kind of tries to follow in EF/Sola's footsteps. Just with rushed pacing and lots of gratuitous sex. Though perhaps I have a higher than warranted opinion of it since I largely ignore the incest arc in favour of the cute little miko and her sister.)

    I'll be a bit annoyed if Chinami is really as simple as she appears on the surface. Akira (again, the litte miko from Yosuga no Sora) is a good example of what I like with these types - her behavior is childish on the surface, but it becomes pretty clear later on she's well aware of what's going on around her and just plays it cool from time to time.

    I don't care much for Linda' looks in either normal or festival garb but she knows how to work the charms she has. Koko... is just too flashy for my taste. I'm fine with a "sharp" look (hell, arguably look "sharp" myself in a full suit and tie), but I'm not into flash. Contrary to what may be popular belief, I can appreciate a good beauty, perhaps more than a cutie - but the "beauties" I find alluring are modest ones, not glamorous or flashy types.

    Attended the last of three Wolf Children screenings at the Vancouver International Film Festival. Film was f***ing awesome and definitely benefited from the excellent AV system the hosting theater had in place. Was lucky I and my anime club preordered because it was a total sell out.

    Afterwards we went to a pub, though we were worried a couple of Japanese exchange we had with us wouldn't be allowed in. Luckily, they did allow their Japanese passports as proof of age. At one point some of us were scrolling a CrunchyRoll listing on a cell phone and pointing out shows we liked, wanted to watch. I pointed out Uchouten Kazoku. At which point our exchange student from Hokkaido, not recognizing the English "Eccentric Family", leans in to look at the pictures, does a bit of a jump, and then reaches into her handbag and pulls out the novel. Probably the most unexpected event of the evening.

    Dude, what have you got against Chinami?

    For me, it's Chinami > Linda > Koko. Linda/Koko could change around depending how Koko works her creepy stalker tendencies out.

    So a bit different from Toradora where I backed the lead girl from the start.

    I like White Album 2 a lot as well, Setsuna's character looks to be compelling. Don't think I'd rank it anywhere near EF though, I think you and I rank EF highly for different reasons.

    Heading to bed, doing an observational assignment tomorrow then attending a Wolf Children screening at the Vancouver International Film Festival with anime buddies. One of my friends is thinking of cosplaying in animal ears, no word yet on what the ratio of artsy types to anime fans is going to be like.

    IMO, they should have either gone the RDG route (serious portrayal of a clumsy protagonist) or the Angel Beats route (the cute girl's maulings are played for laughs, but nobody doubts she can really f*** you up). If they were trying to maximize moe factor, they kind of flopped at it.
