Which is the reason why breast feeding is the main plot device of the show. I watched both of them.
Both animes also have stylized ending themes, with girls having top model poses.

plot was silly, but original nonetheless

My last reply was intended for justinstrife and I initially mistook you for him since you didn't post here again for nearly 2 days. I suppose that post partially applies to you. You also never bothered to even reply to my post that was intended for you. http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...05#post4070805

The same way I can say I don't like shounen-stuff. It was also poorly animated from what I could tell.
It's not being redundant at all. It's getting to the root of that preference. You can't expect someone to make a conclusive judgement based on your personal tastes by merely saying "I like or don't like it". You're letting them do guesswork because you refuse to be specific.

As for the shounen genre, there are different elements/aspects to it. Ecchi and harem are one of many. The fact that you watched the entire HS DxD anime, knowing that it holds many shounen elements, and openly announce that you don't like shounen makes you sound like a hypocrite.

Stop dodging and answer my questions.

Dude, read your previous posts. You are criticizing. You still refuse to point out specific parts of anime you felt was a "waste of time" and explain why in your POV. How can anyone evaluate your opinion and see you eye to eye if you won't even bother getting into detail when it matters? For someone who "expresses how he feels" you like to be vague about it.

Then it's your responsibility to make sure that your message is clear so others won't misinterpret or get the wrong idea of what you says. Because at the moment you're beating around the bush.

ok, this isn't really going anywhere... I think I've made myself clear enough. So, I'll gladly take my leave from this discussion (also going to desubscribe from the thread soon).

Feelings and emotions are often vague and undefined in nature, you know?

The only things you made clear in this thread is the HS DxD anime and shounen is not your preference, and also your outright refusal and dodging to point exactly what and why you dislike it. If you wish to leave this discussion, fine by me. It just proves you were just ranting your dissatisfaction and nothing more. We don't need someone here who just merely criticizes this anime yet can't back up his own conviction and POV.

You said you were expressing your feelings. To express it means you want to make your feelings clear which you are not as far as your opinion on this series is concerned.

Someone who hates shounen stuff didn't like a shounen anime. In related news someone who hates spicy food didn't like the extra hot meal he ordered.

So why did he order it...???




I know what you mean though, ordering a 'Akeno' but getting a 'Rias' instead.... so just dye the hair and you'll hardly notice a thing. She might be mad for a while but who cares...

That's an over-generalization... not liking the genre (technically target audience) in general, does not imply that the same person won't enjoy worthy shows from it. On the other hand it does imply that if a mediocre show of the genre does not offer anything else except the usual rehashed troupes, obviously it won't be enjoyable by anyone except the said genre's fans. DxD did very well both on the ecchi (in the form of fanservice), humor, and occasionally characterization... but forgot all that in the last 2-3 episodes, about the time the anime thread got flooded by the sources fans

Just think of all the positions you can put that Rias figure in tho.

It IS one of those figures that can take on a variety of poses, right?

I really wouldn't want to see articulated figures for HS DxD. Personally I don't see articulations do justice to human figures especially those that have "skin" exposed at the joints. IMO articulation looks best or mecha and power suits and don't ruin the appearance.

I've only seen 2 figures for the series and they're both Rias in fixed poses. One is in her beachwear (which doesn't look that good IMO) and the other in her school uniform which looks nice. I'm hoping the more popular/bigger figure companies like Orchidseed, Megahouse, or Alter will pick up the line. Though I'd prefer Orchidseed since they're masters of cast-offable figures.

That's a lot better than I expected. If the sales remain steady, then I could see this show getting a second season. Anime with worst sales than that got one.

Around 3000 is the cut off point for if it's likely to get another season, so I would think it's a sure thing with these sales.

It's from the LN and the girls are ones not introduced yet. There are quite a lot of pictures from the LN, but I think discussing them is meant to be done in the LN thread.

Did anyone happen to listen to the drama CD that was with the Volume 1 BD? I know some Japanese and it was pretty good. About the seven mysteries of Kuou Academy. I couldn't understand it all so I was wondering if someone else did.
