Well, I like guns and action, so when it first came out, this anime series quite attracted me. And as the show went on, the plot and storyline impressed me quite some.

The lifestyles of the girls, the mentality, the various ways that their trainers treat them as who they are and stuff.

The action bits are esential, since they give a strong underscore to the entire theme.
I'm sorry if it looked otherwise, but I was not singling out anybody. Everybody likes whatever they like for whatever reasons. I was just stating my case.

So, what are your favorite GSG scenes?

I watched the first episode GG and I thought it looked kinda stupid. No offense to anybody that likes it btw. It's just that little girls weilding big guns looks weird to me. Should I watch some more of it? Is it worth watching even. The premise just seems to out there for me.

triela - leader
cleas - set strategy
henrietta - assault
rico - sniper/backup
angelica - give her a gun then throw her into the battlefield, she will fought well although she forget why she fought



i like henrietta bcoz she can play violin

No, you shouldn't. There's no point in watching an anime if you can't buy the basic premise. That's what ruined NGE for me. I couldn't buy that anyone would ever entrust Shinji with anything more powerful than a fork.

I downloaded the last GG epi and didn't watch it for two weeks. This show is boring as hell but I still watch it to kill time.

Boring??? What's so boring about a bunch of 10-14 year old girls packing heat??

How many other shows do you see that you actually have to fear the girl in pigtails standing next to you? ^_^ Plus that irony adds some humor to the show from my perspective. I mean seriously. How often do you see a 10 year old girl cleaning a Glok 9mm while discussing what they did in school today?

non-Japanese still have yet to understand the "moe~" mentality.

Something that cannot be explained...something that you need to realize yourself...something that is unique to Japanese otaku culture

Similar mentalities include "XX-tan ha-ha-" with XX replaced for your "moe~" character

Well, that's not the definition... uh, you're right in that it's hard to define. On 4chan, an American haven of Japanese culture, it is described as "lolicon".

(This is also a bump for the upcoming GSG episode.)

The Japanese online dictionary, goo (http://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/search....8%A4%A8&kind=jn) defines "moe" as:

もえ 【萌え】

ある人物やものに対して,深い思い込みを抱くようす。その対象は実在するものだけでなく,
アニメーションのキャラクターなど空想上のものにもおよぶ。
アニメ愛好家の一部が,NHK のアニメーション「恐竜惑星」のヒロイン「鷺沢萌」に対して抱く,
ロリータ-コンプレックスの感情に始まるといわれるが,その語源にも諸説ある

English translation:

Moe [moe]

To incite strong emotional feelings toward a certain character or thing. Not limited to actual physical things, but evolves more into animated characters and other like-wise imaginary personas. If one asks an extreme anime lover, they would say the origins of "moe" stems from the lolita complex incited from the the heroine from the 1993 NHK series anime, "Kyouryuu Wakusei" (Planet of Dinosaurs), Sagisawa Moe. However, the origins are disputed by many [likewise, some say it stems from Tomoe Hotaru (Sailor Saturn) from the Sailor Moon series]

Though the origins of "moe" can be related to lolicon, "moe" does not necessarily mean lolicon. For example, Kazami Mizuho-sensei from Onegai Teacher (far from being a loli-type character) can also be considered a "moe~ character." So are Suzumiya Haruka from "Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien" and Tessa Testarossa from "Full Metal Panic."

Oh, I thought "moe", especially in the stretched-out form "moe~", came from Kinomoto Sakura's cry in CCS. Although if the term originated before CCS, I suppose that would be a little hard to believe

in other words , it is an association of emotional perogative of the character gives to the viewer, a mix of cuteness yet untouchableness and innocence?

There we go. I guess the closest thing to "moe~" in Western standards are people who love Audrey Hepburn. (wow that was a bad example!)
