This is also an adapted work. The original was also written by a guy, even.

Which is why I didn't think it was worth bringing up, but sure!

I didn't know this was adaptation, I stand corrected then.

In fairness, technically it's more like "based upon" since the original novel reportedly covered when they were kids. I guess you could think of the anime as more like a sequel, perhaps?

Same here. It makes me feel kinda bad for just sitting on my lazy ass watching an anime about fit and active characters.

Very K-on-esque at first sight with a dab of Hyouka, not a bad start.

One thing puzzled me. When the teacher mistook Haruka for a girl she used -san as a honorific, I thought that -san is inherently gender neutral or does it depend on context?

Depends on context. The teacher used -kun for boys and -san for girls consistently.

I would think -chan is too childish a term to describe a schoolgirl for a teacher. So it makes sense to default to -san for the girls.

It's not even a full novel, but based on a CONCEPT (correct me if I'm wrong here) because apparently "High Speed" still remains unpublished.

What we're seeing here looks like a treatment ala Chuunibyou, where KyoAni takes the characters and setting, and takes it in a different direction.

They are both original works released around the same time. The novel was written to as a way to fill in some story about how the boys became friends.

Was based upon the setting in a manuscript submitted to the second Kyoto Animation Award in conjunction with said manuscript being published today as an actual novel (yesterday in JST).

I liked this part too. Never really thought of it, but it is really true. At 10 they call you a prodigy, 15 a genius, and 20 you're ordinary.

Kind of a depressing perspective though, albeit not inaccurate.
It struck me more that grandma witnessed a bad experience or had one and passed the advice on. It seems more sour grapes as you don't progress normally from prodigy to ordinary. That is a scenario when you don't keep your "game" up imo.

That's the basic idea. Typically when girls enter primary school they'll be called "-san" (by those who bother with honorifics and are not close enough for -chan). It's a way of treating them as young women, like the old-fashioned way addressing young females as "Miss Firstname." (Well, it's old-fashioned where I live.)

This is very typical, though, and even in anime it happens all the time, so it's not just Free being weird. (Most recently in RDG: the boys are Sagara-kun and Manatsu-kun, but the girls are Suzuhara-san and Mayura-san.)

The male human body is a beautiful thing, the advantage of animation is that it can idealize its object in ways that relate directly to our imagiation, when I thought of it like that, their ripped bodies stopped looking wierd and are atually nice to look at.

From the first episode, I expect my approach to this show to be like chuunibyo, mainly for entertainment and stylized story telling, but I already like it more than the latter, mainly because the characters and story don't appear to be "light novely", if that makes sense.
