Now nearly all eroges that let you "get a girl" consist of one-shot arcs, one for each character. How much is packed into that one-shot arc depends from game to game, but they're all still one-shot arcs regardless, and Kono Aozora is one of them. So is Kanon, but you apparently enjoy that story.

If you want games with a really solid central story that all the individual character paths orbit around, Prism Ark is the most current example I can think of. Kanon's is about Yuiichi recovering his lost childhood memories, but that's more of a setting rather than an actual plot.

So "Multi-layered is more than one overarching plot element or theme to the story." doesn't really tell me a lot either.

And your high school experience was a "blast?" Then relinquish all hope ye strange one, for if high school was fun enough for you to actually enjoy it and call it a "blast" then there's no hope of any high school-based anime or game meeting your expectations.


Now to address everyone else:




Rinna is the one you want (reddish short-haired in the front of right pic), although it's hard to call her tsundere since she's really tsun in the beginning, then is neutral, then gets dere later on, but only in her character arc. For everyone else's she's just cool after her tsun phase ends.



Spoiler for My description, inferior to ayyo's:


EDIT: I direct you all to ayyo's Kono Aozora thread, as obviously his skill in description is superior to mines.


Is the story deep? It's deeper than To Heart 2, for sure. Definetly deeper than the Tsuyokiss anime. The anime of Da Capo is a little better than it. Prism Ark is deeper than both Kono Aozora and Da Capo. Kanon is just as deep as Prism Ark but in a different way (Kanon is a small-scale human drama, Prism Ark is a fantasy epic).
You answered the question for yourself. The multi-layer thing is only a qualifier for me in a series where the main theme is High School drama. I like a sub theme with my High School Drama or Moe series to make it more interesting (They tend to get really boring very quickly like monster of the week shows. UNLESS they break the each girl gets on arc they disappear and then reappears for the finale formula. Then it can be really interesting if meladramatic. It's the same deal too often with girl of the month [4 episodes or less]).

If I'm going to watch a dating show or high school drama than the characters damn well better be present at the same time more than once in the series to develop there relationships with each other and the hero. With To Heart 2 and Shuffle! you could go episodes without seeing one of the heroines and suddenly they would reappear when its their. It felt sometimes like the character was slipping through alternate universes where only one girl existed at a time.

Maybe it wasn't quite that bad, but I've blocked a lot of it out. They have been getting better at the whole making the Moe/Dating thing interesting to my tastes lately though.

What is this Setanohanoyome show though. I seem to have lost my colour spectrum when I view the website, but it comes back whenever I leave the page. Odd.

Hmm, thanks a lot for the info Shinova. Sounds like a relaxing watch, depending on how it will turn out, hopefully not like Tsuyokiss. I was so anticipating it after ayyo's posts on his blog, but then the first episode came out and I went... well, slient. Gave up after the second episode orz.

As for Seto no Hanayome, I just read the manga and I'll say one thing... BEST EVER COMEDY MANGA in a while. every page, yes almost every page, had me laughing my ass off, not to mention San-chan is kawaii desu~~. I'll be hoping the anime turns out well.

LOL, no official anime sites have opened for those (yet).

I mentioned those three anime because their broadcast date have been recently mentioned on MoonPhase.

Hmmm, Kaze no Stigma looks pretty interesting. The pic reminds me of Shakugan no Shana.

And did you see the thread for the upcoming JEEG 2000 series, Kai?

The thing about Cactus Jeeg (I swear it looks like one) is it is really best as a support unit in Alpha and Alpha 3. I've always wanted to see it though as the idea of a Cyborg turning into the head of a unit is kind of cool. Something was mentioned a while back about a possible Megazone 23 Part IV as well.

I own it too, but I still want a remake. Don't tell me you weren't happy about the release of the Zeta movies. (even if they aren't really as good as the TV series)

A sequel is good too, of course.

I'm going to be honest I haven't seen them yet. I have the series and I don't like the Gackt music at all (It's could not have fit worse with Zeta). I really have no interest in compilation movies (except for Tobe Gundam, Soldiers of Sorrow and Encounters in Space, which are the actual canon now as far as I can tell), especially when they are non-canon. I mean is anyone going to accept this as canon and that ZZ Gundam never happened and hence Char's Counterattack, F91 and Victory.

Nothing. Just us repressed mecha fans who's getting estatic at the recent SLEW of new mecha animes from remakes to sequels to reimaginations to new series altogether, especially more so on the old mecha stuff being revived back in one form or another like VOTOMs, Dancougar, GR and now JEEG. And since the industry keep one-upping us, (( if someone told me Dancougar, JEEG, GR and VOTOMs were getting their franchise reignited all together in 2007 3 years ago, I would've laughed at their faces )), we're just being greedy for wanting MOAR.

Signs have made themselves known that Geneon Entertainment is sharing a close relationship with Megami Magazine in Japan according to the March issue. Look for a new Geneon anime project to be announced soon based on one of the magazine's serialized manga works. Additionally, Frontier Works is brewing up a new as-yet unidentified new anime which could be revealed in the coming months.
Hmm... other than Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS and Galaxy Angelune, what other manga is serialized in Megami Magazine ?
