yeah.. the love would die really quickly if you tripped into a few certain threads on animesuki that shall rename nameless .... it makes my head hurt just to read the thread titles in them.

Maybe I should have rephrased my earlier quote to refer only to a specific circle of posters then. >.>

Meh, still beats ANN. Although all the dorama going on over last weeks Answerman column is rather hilarious...

It's been sucking for me, since they dropped Shin-chan. But if Adult Swim were to show Lucky Star, that would be pretty cool.

... oh, hey what? ... nevermind

eww... their staff writers are annoying enough. I can't imagine the sorts of comments they attract.

I was going to say "love" was not the right word, but the more I think about it.... Of all the boards I sampled, AS had the best combination of lots of posts, lots of different posters, and good discussion. As far as I know, there's really no alternative.

There are some blogs I go back to, but generally I just use animenano and read posts that sound interesting.

And the mods here are great: a light touch, but a certain one. And they certainly made the right choice in giving Lucky Star its own forum: closing in fast on Death Note; only 300 posts behind.

Timeline

Episode 1 - end of March 2006 (baseball is fixing to start)
Episode 2 - April 29 - May 5 (Golden Week)
Episode 3 - June (month of the wedding)
Episode 4 - July 7th (Twins' Birthday)
Episode 5 - July (Summer vaction)
Episode 6 - July (Summer vaction)
Episode 7 - July/August

Does this seem right? The only problem is that in Ep 4 Konata watches Episode 9 of Haruhi after the Twins' birthday (the episode was broadcast in May).

Doesn't make much sense that a flame war was going on over at 2ch if it was a rerun. Everything else makes sense though.

Oh my... where are you from? For a little while I lived in a place where people were all fixing to do things.

The time line seems all right to me... I didn't even think about the Haruhi episode as being the reason a flame war started...

On 2channel, Lucky Star is now on its 100th thread, which is to say closing in on 100,000 posts, which it will reach in a couple of hours. Wow.

Nanoha StrikerS is continuing to grow its lead, however, at 144 threads. Gurren-Laggen is slipping further back in third place, at 71. Just for comparison, Death Note, a popular show that has been on for almost eight months, has 80 threads total. Moe wins on 2channel.

The fact that Gurren-Lagann is even being discussed on 2channel amazes me, as it isn't moe at all. Also it's kind of hard to gauge the positive popularity of a series just by the number of threads it has. Keep in mind 2channels tendency for spam and nonsense compared to the quality discussion here. The true impact of a series should be measured by the quality of the discussion relating to it, not the quantity of discussion. In fact they seem quite content to just mention the fact that they are posting on the 100th thread over and over again for like 1000 posts with a bit of discussion on the CD's, the games and maybe just maybe the series inbetween. This is why I don't have a very high opinion of 2channel.

The amount of spam is directly proportional to how popular the show is? I dunno.

You know I don't know either. I'd say the amount of spam is directly proportional to itself and whatever fodder is there to generate it. You can get quite a few meme's and inspirations for ascii art from any episode of Lucky Star, Nanoha and Gurren Lagann and it will just kind of build upon itself, but with something like Darker Than Black there isn't much you can spam about. The fact that Konata's face is like a piece of ascii art itself contributes just as much posting fodder to the threads as any joke the episode delivers.

We don't have very many ways to judge the popularity of a series. In fact, what does popularity mean? That more people like it? That more people are interested in it one way or another? That more people watch it? That more people will buy the DVDs, the CDs, the ancillary goods? "True impact" is totally impossible to judge, except subjectively, and by some expensive survey. From a producer's point of view, the important thing is how much stuff (DVDs, CDs, game, telephone straps, comics) people will buy.

I'm not sure how this relates to 2channel posts, but so far, the number of threads on 2channel and the sales of the OP seem to track each other fairly well. 2channel just has its own style. Sure, they can post for 25 posts about getting to the 100th thread, but there are lots of more interesting posts, too.

The threads are well into 103 now. As a recent poster said, the threads jump very quickly right after an episode has aired, with people reacting to the episode. He checks at work and by the time he gets home it's on the next thread.

I don't know if it's true (I think it is), but I was interested in what one recent poster wrote about how things have changed in the marketing of a title:
In the past:
anime (manga) ---> manga (anime) ---> toys based on them
Now:
anime (manga) ---> manga (anime) ---> DVD, CD (character songs, small goods such as telephone straps, cards, etc.) ---> game.

Oh, and by my observation, the amount of "spam" and negative posts on 2channel do tend to be proportional to the popularity of a series, but not just to that. KyoAni, Hirano Aya, and Mizuki Nana all seem to have a lot of detractors, as well as fans, whereas I don't see that many negative posts for Hocchan or Nanoha, which are true 2channel favorites. LS had negative posts running about 1:7 to positive, but it is now falling closer to the standard number I've seen across a number of popular shows of 1:10.

XD I wouldn't call them "Tsuruya fangs" because countless anime and manga characters have them, not even considering the vampires and monsters. Kuu-chan from PosutaruWORK for instance has them and she could be considered a "normal" character (as "normal" as one can get accessorizing with kitties).

But yeah... love the fangs.

The first time I noticed that sort of fangs was on Tina Foster in Ai yori Aoshi a few years ago, although I'm sure that was far from the first time they appeared. I think of them as symbolizing that a woman has a wild streak of some kind -- is a little closer to a predatory wild animal than other people. Is there more to it than that?

You're pretty much on target .... a kind of "feline or kitsune" spirit. A lot of japanese have a snaggle tooth (or fang) but the ones really comfortable with their appearance and "living life to the fullest" (aka Tsuruya) don't mind laughing with mouth open and exposing it.

The first time I remember seeing it a few eons ago was with Mitsune/Kit from Love Hina.
