Ah yes, but then again, girls don't become attached to our arms =P

But yea, the nudity really doesn't matter, as long as it doesn't get too out of control. I mean, the set up for this series does sound pretty ecchi despite the direction it has gone, I mean, a girl...for your hand =p

no the thing is i don't mind the nudity shown as long as its appropriately done e.g. within a joke or that its essential. The fact that it just has rin shown with her breasts out in the pool whilst chatting about her brother just seems that they are doing it to increase their fanbase. Rather than having the nudity for the story, they are doing it to pull in crowds. I guess it can be condoned though as they have to attract as many people as possible. What i'm trying to point out is that i'm not too bothered about it, just that i'd rather not have it because it is unecessary.

Then I think you have issues with sexuality, gender roles, stereotypes, and self confidence.

EDIT: And communication. Why can't you put the remaining 1 or 2 letters into the word?

But its got some fanservice... well, with exception of that fourth episode. I blame that on a wardrobe malfunction.

I think you have to get in touch with your inner-Japanese-schoolgirl.

Indeed - add to that huge issues with spelling
Writing like this makes one look like a retard

I really enjoyed ep. 4, despite the lack of nudity... all you stuck-up prudes can be happy now
I can't see what's behind the police clothes fetish, though... I wished she was wearing a scholl uniform, that would be much better

An interesting tidbit I just noticed: The closing song refers to Seiji, not to Midori! "Boku" is used in the song, which is exclusively used by males.

Girls say 'boku' as well. Some even say 'ore'.

Only very boyish girls use male speech. An example would be Tenou Haruka from Sailor Moon, who is acting very boyish and even wearing the school uniform for boys
Midori, however, is anything but boyish, so she would never use male speech.

Seiji is more of an 'ore' type of guy...

I'm not really covinced that it's coming from Seiji's point of view. If you look at the lyrics:

そして気づいた時に考えてるの君のことで…
それがすごく恥ずかしかったり
すごく嫌だったり思えて
それは僕が気持ちを
伝えることが怖いからで

It sounds more like Midori than Seiji.

Not really... Since your sig is of Da Capo, I should mention that Sakura from that show uses "boku", even though she isn't really boyish at all.

Lina Inverse's right. The case woman uses "boku" or "ore" is usually limited to when she isn't girlish. I don't know Sakura, but I think it is a very rare case. FYI, this type of use "boku" has been conspicuous since Ayu used it in Kanon.

I think in the past girls use "boku" are considering tomboyish, however it seems recently in both anime and real world more and more girls use "boku"... times change...

the MnH manga has quite some homosexual overtones now... wonder if the anime series will keep it

Seriously, most of the guys in this forum have probably seen enough hentai to make citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah blush. A little nipplage isn't going to going to make much of a difference in the matter.

As for the series, very nice. Episode 4 was hilarious when Midori was picking out clothes.
