    Seriously, in real life, and I speak hear with the experience of middle age

    Whoa, you're middle-aged? I figured you were about my age, I never would've guessed you were in your 40s or higher.

    Thank you! Don't feel bad about being a late week on the net, god knows that has been the case with me for years now hahahaha ... >.>

    Well, it wasn't much of a defense as much as it was my attempt to put my thoughts about the show in order ... I had been intending to write up a full out review about the show and all of it themes for months now, and only recently did I get into the right mind set to frame my ideas into a coherent body.

    I'm actually somewhat glad to know that I didn't sound like a complete nutjob to someone at least. :P

    one thing though

    Chitanda had all the sweetness, cuteness, and quirkiness associated with moe, but wrapped around a deep emotional core, struggling to come to terms with her uncle's tragic past and her own constrained future (and how that would affect her own prospects with Oreki). Indeed, a lot of the themes in Hyouka had an edge to them, but it never left a bitter taste in the month.
    On second viewing, especially after viewing the ending and getting to learn more about her circumstances, I realized that the first arc was more relevant to the story than I had originally thought, and the moment where Chitanda cried after recalling what her uncle told her was actually more important than I originally thought.

    Long story short, the advice that Chitanda's Uncle had given her was perhaps the most relevant thing she has to use to get through a world where every person around her wants to impose their will on her and simply disregard what she has to say, a world where it is easy to get caught up with the flow and forget to say no and stand up for yourself, and instead allow yourself to be a puppet for others bidding. And her Uncle's story, his advice, that he managed to gain after years of bitterness and taking the fall for a cause he wasn't even behind, was given to her originally by her uncle as a warning and when she cried and was unable to handle it (since she must have been scared of what it meant to her) when she was a little girl. She still sought after it not only because that was the most important thing her Uncle left her (and after his apparent death, she would never be able to reclaim it back) but also because she realized ona subconsciousness level that the closer she gets to becoming an adult, she needs to create a presence for her self, but she couldn't really manage to understand that until Oreki made her remember what she needed to remember and understand to truly out that into work.

    Or at least thats where my train of thought goes to ... I need to word it better latter on.

    You are very welcome. Feel free to join in the fun in the LN thread. V2 stuff hasn't been spoken about at all outside a certain character's name.

    Yes yes, Ranka ftw! I loved every bit of 12 especially when those Zentradis suddenly became best friends after listening to her. So funny. I really thought the whole episode will be another SherylxAlto fluff but surprise surprise. Neko Nikki scene takes the cake. <3
