We can throw around the differences of scale and business models all we like, and it doesn't really have much to do with aesthetics and quality -- or what Kyoto Animation has to or doesn't have to prove.

Obviously, many of the world's great films made outside of the Hollywood studio system with relatively small budgets. For years, the term "franchise" was used as a term of derision. It's a business term -- largely used in reference to fast food chains -- and it was used (again, as an insult) to point to the dichotomy between art and the more craven business interests that came to dominate Hollywood after the 1970s. Like "blockbuster", it has little to do with art or quality, and that's what I thought that we were talking about.

There have been great live action films and TV shows based on both preexisting and original material. The same is true of anime. Kyoto Animation has made its reputation with what many consider high quality adaptations. I just don't see how that's a bad thing.

Well, Kagami does read light novels and play video games, but reading light novels does not necessarily make her an otaku as long as she is not addicted, and I don't think she like to be thought as Konata's same kind. OK, I am biased to Kagami, I admit. She is my fav character in this manga.

no, no, usa-chan, err, Kagami-sama is a closet otaku

Not all the girls are otaku tho. Kona-chan and Patricia are extremes, Kagami is somewhat middle ground (understands the lingo and Konata's comments), then there people like Tsukasa (私分からなかったよ~) and Hikage-chan... poor poor Hikage-chan ガンバ!

New scan:



with the further confirmation of the "24 episodes", in the bottom.

Also an alternative version of the scan with Konata & Haruhi that I posted two pages ago. Texts wiped out and background added.

Yeah, and she's probably playing Shuffle! On the Stage (the PS2 version). I'm in so much love.

I didn't really like the artstyle/character designs at first but it's started to grow on me. I'm liking the expressions that they do as well.

1). Kagami is reading Fullmetal Panic(novel more likely), but dont know what is Konata reading nor the books on the table.

2). The manga Konata holds as a cup is vol. 3 of The Enchained Spiritual Beast. And the book on top of that pile of books is...Future dairy!?! WOW I love the female lead in Future dairy, she is so crazy so kick@$$.

Nyuuuuuu! Characters look soooo cute! They did a good job on Yutaka-chan! But the 2nd picture showing her and Miyuki only shows the first top half for me. Wonder why? Also, who's that pink-haired, yellow-eyed girl next to Nanako-sensei?

To be honest, I think the series, though it will probably turn out all right, is really just a filler series KyoAni's doing so they can have more time to prepare for CLANNAD.

Hold on...doesn't Yutaka remind anyone of Tomohane from "Inukami!"? Hair in pigtails, small, cute, and same seiyuu (Hasegawa Shizuka).

It's actually Shuffle! - Artbook : Official Visual Guide as found here or here.

Novel Vol 18 - "Side Arms 2 - Kyokuhoku Kara no Koe"

The books on the table look like copies of Shonen Ace since one of them says Fate on the spine.

Is KyoAni trying to hint at something? This is the second time they have inserted some "Shuffle!" references. Are they planning to make their own version of that franchise? I can see it happening, especially since Sugita Tomokazu is already voicing Rin.

Heh.
