The other was the scene where Hiyori was staring at the nursery and said "children are cute". Now, if she were a young man, people would probably find that suspicious as all hell. It'd be like that scene from Welcome to the NHK.
Indeed.

Mages have laws and regulations, but she's talking about "bending" the rules, which does indicate that she has, how do I put this, a mild questioning of authority (I say "mild" because she's never struck me as a rebel in any sense).
Well, the original Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto often revolved around this point.

when im watch this show, i cannot shake the feeling that the people who made this show are being lazy in animations, character design and sceneries (still photos). Dont get me wrong, i like the slow pace of this show and it gives me peace in mind.

When you see poor animation, it's not that animators are being "lazy" (what kind of work concept is that?), it's more like the producers are not paying enough animation time or number of animators.

Episode 8 was a classic anime episode. I'd call it a masterpiece.

The story was simple, but the emotions and personalities were revealed in such an artistic way. This show is at a higher aesthetic level than any show now running, with the possible exception of Kara no Kyokai.

People who criticise the animation of this show are in my opinion just wrong, period. This is one of the best-animated shows I can recall. The style is very, very different, but the animation does everything it has to do to show the characters quite intimately and tell a story excellently well. And the backgrounds are among the most atmospheric I have ever seen.

I vehemently disagree with criticism of the money-saving long-shots or static shots with voiceovers. Those are among the most effective moments in the anime, for me. Such as when we see Hara receiving Sora's call. He is in the background of a scene, but that makes the scene so effective. We get a feeling of real presence, and Koyama Rikiya's wonderful voice has a chance to dominate our attention.

I've watched ep8 twice, and it just gets better (especially since the second time was at my laptop's full 1280x720). I especially liked seeing the full-size ads in that version, which was from Zero.
Spoiler for ep8:
This and True Tears are my two favorite shows of 2008. I think one great example of how subtle and expressive the animation is in this show is in the OP, when Sora is standing among the trees looking out across the field. The way her jaw juts out expresses her determination so well, as her soft features express her gentleness at the same time.

I am more and more impressed with Gouta's seiyuu, Maeno Tomoaki. I only just realized again that he was Doujou in Toshokan Sensou. Naruhodo. He did very well in that show, too. He's a 26-year-old newcomer who had one minor role in each of 2005 and 2006, then six minor roles last year, and now 15 roles, three of them fairly major, in 2008. He's on his way up. He has done Japanese dubbing for some TV shows, too, including 24, CSI New York, and Gray's Anatomy.

The absolutely outstanding OP and ED both come out next week, on September 3.

This episode was written by lead writer Yamada Norie, storyboarded by director Kobayashi Osamu, and directed by long-time animator Arakawa Masatsugu, who has been animation supervisor of a couple of dozen episodes of Crayon Shin-chan, and does a lot of work on the ARIA shows.

Chapter 8 of the manga came out a couple days ago, and the Natsu no Sora live action movie (coming out December) site was announced.

I have to say, every version of Sora and Gouta look really different (manga, anime, movie).

And chapter 7 color opening. Scanned and patched it up a while ago, not gonna get to scanlating it anytime soon.

Another outstanding episode. Clearly the best show of the season, for me. I didn't laugh...
Spoiler for ep9:
I have no clue what happened in that strange scene. serenade_beta's suggestions make sense.

I thought Takahashi Mikako was excellent, especially during the phone call. Great animation of her expression there, too. Loved Marina's voice this week.

The odd animation reminded me once again of Noein.

I've wanted to see more of Enoshima since Uta~Kata.

And all the music is wonderful.

You know what, I almost completely sided with Kuroda in this episode. Being a mage isn't for everyone. So what if he has the talent, if he doesn't enjoy it, why shouldn't he quit? He's young, he has plenty of time to find out what he wants to do with his life. It's better than dedicating your life to a career you don't particularly enjoy, which seems to be the popular philosophy in corporate Japan (ie, the attitude that you do your job because you have to, not necessarily because you want to).

I would say you are probably correct Sorrow-K but in this case he seems to enjoy doing magic but he wants to do big magic and not small tasks to customers that irritate him. Admittedly he couldn't get that bowl together and after that he was really stepped on by Asagi who just seems to be like that all the time. Obviously she had some caring emotions that she showed up at the end but what an abrasive personality. I'm waiting for the episode in which she realizes that she needs help from a friend so that maybe she can simmer down a bit. Anyways, I don't know what Kuroda's motivation is. He couldn't decide on what to write his father so perhaps he is simply being pressured and forced to learn magic by his father. The boy is certainly stressed out.

I don't know who sings the folk songs within the episodes but I am really digging her song. I hope that her music is on the OST when it's released. Of course the OP and ED are also great musically. I am still amazed by the really unique artistic look they have in the animation. I think I just dig everything about the series so far.

I just wish the Fansubs weren't so far behind. We just got Ep 7 and already people are talking about Spoilers for Ep 10. *sigh*

Maybe I'm beginning to rank this series as a masterpiece. Episode 11 was just the kind of anime I like, full of meaningful silence and deep but understated emotion.
Spoiler for ep11:
Director Kobayashi Osamu did the storyboard for this episode, which was directed by Arakawa Masatsugu (director of Time Stranger Kyoko, key animation on shows like Haibane Renmei, ARIA, Blood+, and Chevalier D'Eon).

I think I'm one of the few people in the otakudom who loves Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto ~Natsu no Sora~ more than Natsume Yuujinchou. It's not just because of my bias for romance, but the way each episode thugs all these emotional strings of mine... it's really my iyashikei anime

Mentioned my [brief] thoughts on episodes 5-7 in this write-up. Here's to hoping more people will love this show, or at least... give it more chance (I also hope the fansubbers can catch up!)
