    Something I found out that surprises me: Chika's mom in the Love Live Sunshine is voiced by Kugamiya. Knowing that, I can actually hear it when she says "school idol".

    And speaking of Love Live parents, you remember how Honoka's dad is holding a bunch of glowsticks betweens his fingers during the Sunny Day song segment in the movie? Apparently that move is referred to as "wolverine" among idol fans.

    Saw some photos from a Halloween party hosted by an anime club at one of the universities around here, they had:
    1) a Rem cosplayer with blood makeup
    2) Rem and Subaru pinatas
    3) Tombstone cutouts for a bunch of famous anime characters (ie. Mami and Menma), including multiple ones for Subaru which listed episode numbers

    I want to thank you for selling me on Re:Zero. Episode 15 alone has made it a worthwhile watch. I hope to hear your own thoughts on Re:Zero Episode 15.

    I'm doing fairly well. Contingent on some formalities I'll be starting a new job in September. It's only for a year but it pays well and there's a possibility of being hired back. I also have a cosplay event this weekend and will be spending a few days in Washington D.C. later this month.

    That said I'm surprised how stressful I'm finding preparing for the job. First, because I want to avoid working weekends and that means figuring out how to maximize the time I can spend at the office during the week. Second, because while I have one good suit I suddenly need an actual business wardrobe. I don't know much about that kind of thing and the amount of money involved is stressful. Not because I can't afford it, but because I'm not used to handling it.

    As for spring 2016 anime, I'm still loving the SoL trio of Flying Witch, Sansha Sanyou and Tanaka-kun. Re:Zero's second arc built up some really good momentum as it went but didn't land the ending quite as well as I would have liked, still love the show on the whole though. Macross Delta is the other way around, I'm not as into the show as you and Darth on the whole (even if I still like it) but episode 11 hit it out of the park. Thoughts on the rest will have to wait until I have some time.

    How's it going? Been awhile since we last chatted.

    I hope things have been good for you and your girlfriend.

    I'd also be curious to hear what your favorite Spring 2016 anime shows are with only an episode or two to go for many shows.

    I've now watched Episode 1, 1.5, and 2 of Re-Zero. I see why you like the show, but really, the male lead is awfully slow on the uptake for someone that seems to pride himself on being genre saavy.

    I mean...

    Spoiler for Re-Zero spoilers:


    The overall setting and other characters are interesting though. Probably the show's saving grace for me.

    In any event, yeah - Lack of romance (for a VN adaptation), and male lead kept almost entirely in a support role are probably the two major issues here sales-wise.
    Ao Rhythm doesn't really stick to the classic VN formula in that regard, but I'm not sure how much it hurt the show. If you want a VN adaptation with REALLY abysmal sales, Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete's highest selling volume managed just 419 copies and to me Ushinawareta came about as close to being a classic style VN adaptation as you get these days.

    Beyond that, Daitoshokan no Hitsuji did 788 and Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya o Mezasu failed to chart, which suggests less than 1K to me. Grisaia (4220 units) is really the only VN adaptation targetting male audiences to make it big the last couple years without a pedigree (ie. Fate, Little Busters, Utawarerumono).

    (Hence why I'm glad to see Hyouka broke the 10K barrier in bluray rerelease. With how bad the VN adaptation sector looks, it's nice to see a bright spot elsewhere.)

    One thing I do think was damaging was the weak opener. Ao Rhythem's second volume had a better first week (1076 units) than the first (1003) which is pretty rare and suggests some buyers didn't get on board until the end of the series.

    The opener had a couple flaws - the simplified version of flying circus doesn't look nearly as spectacular as the full version we see later, and the visuals of the flying circus scenes are one of the show's great strengths. Heck, we don't even get to see proper flying suits. Nor did the characters seem that developed early on.

    As for what I think of the series as a whole, I love it because it corrects those mistakes. The actually flying circus game looks great and is a lot of fun to watch - I'm not sure all the tactics used make sense, but I also didn't really care. And the characters get better over time, particularly Misaki. Heck, Mashiro actually becomes kind of bearable after the episode focusing on her and Hinata.

    Great replies to recent RRRound Table threads. Thank you for them.

    I am really curious to hear more on your take on Ao No Kanata no Four Rhythm, and what I wrote about it. By the way, it's already aging well for me. I've softened on some of my issues with Four Rhythm's finale, and I think it was a very good sports anime overall with some well-done moe.

    Now through 10 episodes of Ao No Kanata no Four Rhythm.

    I still like the show a lot, but some of the major plot directions taken since Episode 7 are at least questionable to me. I see the pros and cons to them. They probably make for a more intense and thorough sports anime, but they've also made the show less fun for me. Perhaps it'll lead into a final payoff in Episodes 11/12 that's all worth it. A few more short thoughts in spoiler space below.
