There's otakuism in everyone but the question is, what level of otakuism do you possess? I think i ll go level up a bit by making some more useless signature.

Darn, I saw Kanon 1 and had that impression, but I was hoping Kanon 2006 (which I have not yet started) would have changed him. Guess not

re Tsukasa and Akari: There is a strong resemblance, but I think there's a closer match, since their faces are different. I swear I've seen Tsukasa in some other anime (probably with different colored hair) but I can't put my finger on it. I thought it was Pani Poni Dash, but I couldn't find a picture of the complete cast... it's driving me crazy since I get this strong deja-vu every time I see her face (and ribbon).

Not to sound overly-harsh, but I would take what Kaoshin says with a pinch of salt. Yuuichi in Kanon(2006) is widely accepted to be one of the better male leads to appear in recent history, and can be considered to be leagues ahead of Kanon(2002)'s Yuuichi. I am fairly confident that you will end up liking Kanon(2006)'s Yuuichi, confident enough in fact, to make a bet with you. If you wind up disliking Yuuichi at the end of Kanon(2006), feel free to de-rep me for leading you down the wrong path.

If you have more questions about Kanon(2006), feel free to pop on down to the Kanon sub-forum for more answers. There is a Q&A thread for spoiler-free queries.

As for Lucky Star, well... currently the main attraction for me is the presence of Kagami and Akira. I am partial to Konata, but some of her mannerisms just doesn't gel with me. Tsukasa is okay at times, but not that memorable to me, and Miyuki is just too ditzy for my liking.

Cheers.

Konata = Cleft-chan
Akira = Cleft-tan

They both have cleft lips.

Meh. I was amused by the dancing in the opening, but the rest of the first episode was just boring. Shame. =/

Indeed but IMO, the opening is quite hypnotic and the "I want make you my slave" article on the newspaper incident was somewhat amusing.

How about

THE ONE THAT DIDNT HAVE TO RELEASE A VERSION 2?

Sleeping-Forest's is the best by FAR. Not even close. That a.f.k. group did okay for newbs, but there's no substitue for experience!

...... You're kidding, right? This is Sleeping-Forest's first project, while a.f.k. has done at least two series

BTW I just love the opening song. But I have to wonder HOW many retakes it took for them to get it right. Man it's like a tongue twister and being an auctioneer in one. The song is so fast at times it's nuts.. I am definitely putting this song on my phone which is also an mp3 player to listen to while driving

FatPianoBoy, on a side note if your keeping up with the Haruhi translations I should be releasing volume 5 pdf this weekend on their forums

So right now I'm watching the episode and since comedy is such a subjective subject I feel I will invent a completely random rating system out of nowhere in order to review this episode. So here goes:

Spoiler:


So tallying it up we get a -78632/MOE. The distinct lack of Guile's Theme really hit the show hard it would seem. Lesson is, don't mess with a guy and his 16-Bit era video game music.



That being said, I found the segments that took deliberate pot shots at the Otaku scene to be the funniest. Unfortunately they only encompassed about a 1/3 of the jokes at most so the rest were just kind of meh. If this show wants me to really like it, it needs to keep up with the Otaku jokes. Go after me and my mecha, I don't care, go after lolicon too if you want, but just do the Otaku jokes more often.

a.f.k. has been around since at least '02, from memory. They have a reputation, particularly recently, of localizing the language in their translations, which is counter to the attitude of a lot of other groups, which leave some words in Japanese (eg, otaku, moe, etc). Personally, I actually think it's a good way to do things, since it leads to a more thorough translation, and doesn't leave it's audience in the dark if they aren't familiar with otaku terminology.

I dug up a video of the OP stripped of the vocals. The OP is lame without the singing because the background music absolutely sucks. It just goes to show you how voice-dependent the OP is.
