You COULD skim through it but then again...it isn't all that great compared to White Album. But Shiori! Her cuteness! It can't be missed....*gets smashed in the head by a hammer*

There should be a live action version of this anime. But to recreate the retro-imagery of the 1980s might be a little tough, though Japanese modern tastes, IMO, incorporate quite a number of fads in it. Girls don't wear elastic bands over their long hairs like how Tomoyo from Clannad, or Yuki for that matter, anymore.

I think the nostalgia present could draw audience and make this a hit, but there is a need to make the animation more accurate. Yuki was playing on practically all white keys when the song has got 5 flats/sharps.

P.S Shiroth, I was wondering if that girl in your avatar is a moe-fied version of Persona 3 Portable's female MC.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Yuki ending? More like NO ending, m i rite. I mean, seriously, NOTHING got resolved relationshipwise other than Touya just realizing his psychological quirks and traumas. For all we know, he never hooks up with Yuki again. GOOD END.

Even after this entire series, the one thing second to my disappointment about Yayoi's "route" is my lack of misunderstanding about Mana:

What on earth was her problem?!

She's a petulant girl who supposedly is "of college and consenting age," but often acts like a spoiled preteen who gets her way or throws a tantrum, never using her higher brain centres to think things through or talk them through. She is very resistant to the concept of saying thank you or owing someone, and constantly berates and orders Touya around. From the way it looks (and how it seems she doesn't have an altruistic bone in her body) I wouldn't be surprised if in her ending for the games she puts a leash on Touya and makes him her "boy toy."

Part of this could be due to the fact that her mother isn't around enough to use a strong hand with her (her Mother could be one of those parents who think that material support is a viable substitute for emotional and psychological support). Her belittling attitude towards men could also be a consequence of the fact that Mana's mother is divorced, with her sister going off to her father.

Given all that, I find it hard to believe that Mana's capable of a mature relationship with Touya, or if she's doomed to treat men she's interested in as something akin to what the Romans used to call a "body slave" (an indentured servant who is bound to your every whim, both praise and abuse, and follows you closely all the time). Can someone with knowledge of her route in the games fill me in on this part of her personality which was not very well explained in the anime?

I thought Mana's "anime route" was well explored. You learned enough about her to understand her. You just said why she acts the way she does and we learned about it in both seasons.

Just remember how she acted towards the final episodes:
Spoiler:
Besides, every mean thing she said to him and how she acted towards him was pretty justified.

As for the game...I don't know. I looked at the CGs (the character designs changed a fair amount but the clothes stayed the same [so did Yayoi's hotness, dayamn]) and saw nothing about him being a boy toy or anything. But I doubt the gallery was complete since there were so few images compared to other series.

I wish i knew, though there seems to be no release date at all.

All we have are character and drama CD's.

100% Yuki ending I think not. He'd be more likely make back up with the receptionist at the college . It feels more like a reboot ending where he is now a good friend with benefits with all of his goddesses

Okay I just watched a movie which everyone who liked White Album will enjoy...500 Days of Summer.

And it was a Yuki ending because she had no closure. The usual "end" holds little meaning to this series.

Yeah. More loli than moe. In the VN I think she was only there to satisfy those who liked lolis though. Has anyone found a place that outlines the VN at all?

I'd feel bad for you if you legally obtained the movie and watched it, but since you downloaded instead of spending a few dollars, I won't.

Yeah, that's a really sweet and tender movie. Very heart warming, and should fit you perfectly, Cero.

5 cm per second is Heart Warming? More like heart destroying... it supercedes heart breaking to such a degree..

I was actually hoping he'd watch it thinking it'd be heart warming since he downloaded a movie that he could have rented for a few dollars.
