Yes I love it too... Many goes to the ball park just for the festival feeling. This stems from high school baseball games, where everyone in the stands are counted as the "Oendan" or cheer squad. They just carried it over to the pro games. I don't know THAT many hated it as darksider said, but I know some baseball-hating girls who just goes to the game just to scream. It's not easy to find a place where you can raise your voice without public shame.

Here's a nice little video of a treasured tradition for the Hanshin Tigers. During the 7th Inning stretch, the Tiger fans all sang the Hanshin Tigers Fight Song, Rokko Oroshi, and then release the Tigers Ballon to the air. If you ever wanted to visit Haruhi's home town of Nishinomiya City, you'd best visit Koshien Stadium and attend a Tigers game. Feel the passion of the Kansai folks!

What type of audience participation? And do you mean just in High School? I just went to a Yankees vs Red Sox game a couple of weeks ago and there was plenty of uh, "audience participation" I guess you could call it. Many cheers, boos, and nasty words were yelled out as well as a couple of game ejections in our seating area.

No, that's just monkey poo throwing no better than some soccer/rugby audiences and makes me embarrassed to even watch such infantile behavior.

The japanese fans are like an entire organized cheering squad. Its fascinating to watch and it happens in the professional leagues even more than in high school.

I should ask you a few more things about Japanese society in general, Vexx-sensei. I'm taking a Japanese Studies module right now, and the Hanshin Tiger fan clubs just happened to be the topic of one of my readings a few weeks ago.

I certainly think you can be of great assistance to my studies, Vexx-sensei.

@ascaloth: actually, kj1980 is better at gritty details of pop culture and daily life, AVPlaya seems to have "normal mundane" life nailed.
And I've always been more interested in 'cultural daily life' anyway (no matter what country we're discussing).

And... Risaa is going to be living there now at her new university so you can get the scuttle from an "on site" gaijin genki-na onnanoko.

But feel free to ask away and discover the gaps in my understanding

@Pell14: check the comments in the episode 1 thread... in summary, the food gag is a long-running mild punchline (like a George Burns five minute gag).
1) Note how obsessive Konata comes back to the original question.
2) Note Tsukasa like mayo on *everything* ... this is like a Japanese local psychosis, they love mayo (on natto?? o... my... gods... )
3) Wordplay humor lost in a.f.k. translation (the chicken-egg-family remarks)
4) We discover Konata can cook (negi-tan shio)
5) We discover Miyuki is Walking Wikipedia.
6) Unseen sister Kagami is assertive
7) and on and on ....

In other words, small talk reveals much to the observant person.

What would you like to know? How *AWESOME* the cell phones are? How cheap every meal has been so far? How... damned humid it is here? XD I answer from a new gaijin perspective, of course.

....I've been getting mixed responses when I speak. There's a lot of, "heeee..." in astonishment type of reactions. Only one person has taken action against me, and she immediately ran off to get me natto. (No worries though, I impressed her by passing the natto tesuto! Maybe she was disappointed that I didn't make a funny face...)

Whoops, totally off-topic post eh?

I thought the cost of living in Japan was high? Is that a legend?

The cost of living in Japan depends on how you choose to live. You can get by quite nicely by with some adjustment to expectations. Plenty of good cheap restaurants, housing is no worse than an apartment in any big city (just smaller). For visitors, traditional inns will set you back no worse than a Super 8 in the states and they're much prettier.

Now if you do the Tokyo high life at the five star hotel and demand beef with every meal and your own bath suite.... yeah, it costs a fortune.

Thumbs up

*cries loud and uncontrollably over the mother scene* That was so sweeeet! ';_;' and well done! It didn't drag itself down with overdone crying scenes and drama, and they're still able to make it as funny as it is sweet.

I've been avoiding these threads until seeing the AFK versions so as to avoid spoilers and I'm glad I did this time. Not only because the second act was so great and unexpected, but I was so surprised by Shimamoto Sumi's guest appearance. When Kanata first appeared, I thought to myself that she sounded a lot like Sumire-chan from Koko wa Greenwood, whom Shimamoto-san also guest-appeared as (fitting given the Cagliostro parody in the show not to mention a description of Hasukawa-kun at one point in the manga as resembling "Teto"), but just figured it was my imagination. I missed the voice credits afterwards due to Minoru-run-run's singing game shenanigans, but during the episode preview for 23, when she made the "wind turbulence" reference from Nausicaa, I fell out of my chair and went back and checked the credits then.

Oh KyoAni, you devils...
(so looking forward to Clannad)

Man, I'm at a loss in what to say about the Kanata segment. Let's see...it was just beautifully touching. Great job, KyoAni for this adaptation!

Wow, rewatching this episode with AFK's subs reminds of how L*S, or this episode specifically made me decide to call L*S the best anime of the year.

While I didn't cry manly tears like before, I did choke up though on my hamburger that I was eating.

My thoughts are still the same from when I posted it back then, but I have to say again, it still is amazing how a blatant over the top comedy can go drama on you for at least 10 minutes and completely own every aspect of it.

I miss L*S, I demand a second season shortly after Haruhi 2 is out!

I just watched this episode recently, and have had it rewinding for days. XD
And it still moves me like crazy.

I do hope the upcoming BGM would feature the music played in the Kanata scene!
