    And... I'm through six episodes of Sakurasou now. Yeah, episodes 3 through 6 were all really strong, maybe with a slight hiccup in Episode 5 were the comedy was briefly too heavy for my liking.

    Thanks a lot for recommending this show to me!

    I just finished the third episode of Sakurasou.

    I'll be honest - The first episode really didn't do much for me, and it felt pretty generic aside from the premise of a guy being surrounded by actual screwballs (as in, people widely recognized as such, even by virtue of where they live).

    However, with the third episode, the Toradora comparisons are now becoming clear to me. It does have that same "cut above typical anime romcom" feeling that you get with Toradora and Ano Natsu. In other words, it has some intellectual heft to it.

    Mind you, I was never a big Toradora fan, but that mostly had to do with me tiring of KugRie Tsunderes and with Ami annoying me greatly. Sakurasou is actually a more pleasant watch for me since none of its cast members annoy me (at least not yet, after three episodes). I also think it compares well (in most respects) to Ano Natsu because it doesn't have that sci-fi thing going on that can be distracting and detracting from the mood.

    So yeah, I'm now starting to see why you, Pocari Sweat, and Konakaga all wanted me to watch this show. I'll probably marathon up through the first six episodes later today. I'll share more thoughts with you on it later on.

    Would you find it strange if I said that of eight Ririchiyo cosplayers I’ve run into at Vancouver and Seattle conventions, two of them have also cosplayed Taiga from Toradora and one says she wants to cosplay the character?

    (Also, for its profile Inu x Boku SS is really popular as a couple’s cosplay, I’ve seen three couples do Soushi and Ririchiyo in the past year (as well as one case of two girls cosplaying the characters).)

    Well, to be fair, your "slight hit to the ribs" idea seems reasonable to me (both for real life and for anime).

    More than anything, I just think this style of comedy is kind of... played out, maybe? And while I honestly accept the gender double standard to some degree (let's face it, guys tend to be physically stronger than girls, biologically speaking), I also think it can be taken too far. My mind goes back to Ore no Imouto's Kirino here. If Kyousuke had, say, literally pushed her away from him after her 4th or 5th time of hitting him, I couldn't and wouldn't fault him for that. But I think a guy should only punch a female, actually punch her, if she really is a serious threat to him (and here I'm kind of talking about an actual female villain that's great at fighting and/or powerful).

    And yeah, a guy who took a 'roll with the punches' approach to the tsundere abuse might come across well.

    Decent people aren’t always decent when you walk in on them in the shower, and my tendency is to say that both sympathy and a bit of slack are warranted. I’d honestly say the biggest problem with most male leads isn’t that they take the hit – which may well be the best course of action – but that they don’t do so with dignity.

    That said, if the female character’s personality allows for swallowing pride (ie. probably not someone like Taiga), I still think an after the fact apology or repentence is a golden opportunity for the writer. Especially if the character is a tsundere – bashful mode on, yes?

    (Also, - and I suspect you might agree with me on this – I’d rather see the guy be pacifistic to a tsundere than subscribe to this “she hit me, now I’m justified in putting her in her place” BS I hear some people articulate from time to time. Escalation is not self-defense.)

    I'll check it out soon. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I don't want to sound too fanboy for Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo since it's not exactly a masterpiece in the making at this point - but given how much apologetics and evangelism I've been doing for the show via VM and PM this past week, I feel like my work won't be complete until I mention to you that I found the second episode planted it firmly in "better than it sounds" territory.

    I think Sawa stole the show this week in Tari Tari.

    ... That outfit is just Konatsu's imaginatin and not what she's going to wear for the performance itself, right?

    (Trying to get time to reply to other conversations, but I've been busy.)

    Some of my favourite shots from Day 1 of Anime Revolution at Canada Place in downtown Vancouver: Day

    As with Sakuracon in Seattle, most of my photos ended up being Madoka or Fate/Zero related, but I think I got better photos from a smaller group of cosplayers because I had far more time and space at my disposal.

    Two magical girl anime shows having such similar names, and having mentor vs. protege is pretty funny yeah. I'm glad to see magical girl anime on the rise again. For a long while, magical girl anime seemed to me to be all Nanoha and PreCure. Nice to see Madoka Magica breath some new life back into this genre.
