That damn siscon finally arrives! Heh. Amazing how we're being all happy about a male character here...

Hopefully his buddies will be joining the cast as well. With Leo finally confirmed, they're practically there already.

Oh, and by the way, sorry for not finding the existing Otome thread in a search. Oops! ^^; It's because I searched for the "oboku" that seems suggested to me by the title, vs. "boku" used in the thread and other places. What's with the missing "o" - some grammar rule? Anyway, just thought I should point "that-a-way" for discussion already in progress.

Edit: I asked a Japanese friend of mine about it, and he said that they're using a different furi to bring emphasis on the real meaning of the title - that the "onee-sama" is actually a guy, and the guy is actually you (the main character). His suggestion, incidentally, was Otome wa o"nee"-sama ni koishiteru. Anyway, for the 1 other person out there who may be wondering the same thing I was, there you have it... ^^;

Knight-san generic? No way, Subaru will murder you for saying that. There is a reason it is called the "Leo Family" and not Crab Family or Date Family or Shark-san Family.

I just saw on Moonphase that a new "CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2 1995~2006" short will be produced by Madhouse. No date.

OP to be sung by Maaya Sakamoto.

Hehe. Nope, absolutely not. At least in the game, Leo is one of the most likable male leads I've ever seen. He's a swell guy in all paths, but I really need to pull my hat for his tenacity in the Hime arc. Knight-san banzai!

Subaru, Fukahire and all the others are confirmed with Seiyuus. Subaru even keeps his very distinct game voice! Looking forward to that

On the other hand, I have to question the decision to let Nakahara Mai voice Hime. I mean, what the heck? She has never done a confident-aggressive-haughty ojousama role yet. And the idea to have a Nagisa/SP-style voice interpret Erika gives me the shivers...

Well, be that as it may, the character design still looks painfully pedestrian, dull and uninspired.

I am not a fan of harem in general, so I may be biased, but all these main leads from harem anime do tend to look strikingly similar, regardless of the character differences.

He's certainly not an ass, that's for sure. As for being a generic male lead...

In its own respect, the design is nice, but coming from the game, it's a bit of a disappointment. And considering the anime is probably going to follow the PS2 character's lead, not expecting too much from this one...

With regard to looks, I have to admit that he does look generic. But whether he was an ass or notówell, let's just say that he isn't perfect. Despite that however, he comes off as a pretty likeable guy in the end. It isn't that difficult to see why he, Subaru and Fukahire are good friends.

I also miss the original drawing style though. And just like some fans out there, I'm not expecting too much from this series. On another note, I'm not expecting too much from the voice acting either, but I'm willing to keep an open mind with regard to that at least.

Well I dont expect to much from male harme leads.. Though I take it he might be Great! in the game.. who knows about the anime... I always! hear that no this guy is different... but most of the time I dont end up liking him. I like his design it doesn't look that bad, it not only harem leads that can look Generic, so I dont really care too much about that.

The good news for me about Tsuyokiss is that the anime most likey will be consistent with character design and animation. The same animation studio's that are working on Tsuyokiss, right now is working on Yoshinaga-san Uchi no Gargoyle Where they so far have done a good job.

Compared to the game, the design is more cute... with some of characters it looks better but with Nagomi I like her game design better.

I don't exactly fully understand what you're saying here. If the character designs of the anime are different than the game's, then in what way are they consistent? It's pretty obvious that the game's style is more mature-looking, "harder" and sharper than the relatively cutesy style of the anime version.

Are you talking about consistent quality, or are you comparing the drawing style of game to what is used in the anime?

Sure. But I think too much credit is given to him for being a "great" character. There are lots of good male protagonists out there... they just haven't been coming to anime.

Actually, I was trying to be nice with respect to his "ass-ness." He has one or two moments in particular that come to mindóbut being a game, they only happen in specific branches of the story. He is pretty generic, but he's a good generic lead at the very least.
