    I've been enjoying Brynhildr all the way through - It's not one of my top tier shows of the Spring 2014 season, but it's been a solid keeper - But I do see what you're saying. Thinking back on it, I did take the show pretty seriously in its first half, but have found it harder to do so over the last few episodes.

    The show has built up a pretty good narm charm identity, in my view, but it probably could have been more tense and gripping if it had wanted to be. It's kind of like a Hollywood movie that could have been A-list but sort of settles for being an above average B-list popcorn flick.

    @Fluff: I definitely don't like most light novel tropes but inconsequential SoL is a bit of a tough for me since Minami-Ke or Azumanga Daoih had spades of it and I really liked both. Why I do dislike though, if there's obnoxious girls (usually loli, tsundere, imouto or a combination of the above) begging for camera attention. And airheaded moeblobs or Rei/Yuki/Mashiro/Inori type mutes.

    @Glasslip: I meant more so in character designs and looks wise. Personality wise she seems somewhere in between Ohana and Wakana.

    I'm a bit concerned it might go the waaaaah teen romance drama route (partially due to the 2nd half of the 2nd PV with the nano.ripe song which was god awful btw) and if so I'm going to be mad. Really mad. Some romance on the side is fine, but anything that goes Nagi no Asu Kara, Kokoro Connect or Ano Hana levels and I'm gonna start flipping tables. Cause I really doubt if it was a romance centric series, the quality would be of True Tears, ef or White Album 2 level. I trust PA Works enough and that without the involvement of Okada, that the amount of "stupid shit" (ala Hanasaku Iroha episode 3) will be minimised so I don't have to worry about it being a Sakurasou or Toradora (which had a lot of "stupid shit" amongst the good moments) either.

    Give me Tari Tari/Hanasaku Iroha with a glassmaking theme and I'll be a very happy camper. Been too bloody long since I got a good dose of quality moe with substance to back it up. Or whatever the genre is called that these shows fall into. Moe slice of life/coming of age/drama/wistful/mono-no-aware thingymabob.

    Holy moly. Love Live just broke even Monogatari and Madoka's record of highest 1st week bluray sales.

    Btw, what do you exactly mean by "fluff"?

    On another note, me and Archon were trying to label Glasslip characters based on first impressions. The main female is a Hiromi wannabe, the glasses girl is Mini-Tsuruko and the final girl with the big ribbon/bow? on her hair is Minko v2.0. We were also hypothesising which character we were likely gonna fag over. I'm most likely the Hiromi wannabe and Archon the Mini-Tsuruko. Neither of us wanted the tsundere. What are your thoughts?

    Considering I just finished Cross Game only about 2 months ago, and it jumped to my top 5 of all time (it was -that- fucking good) I don't think I'll be able to watch any sports series unless you're called Ping Pong which like Cross Game is a fantastic character study.

    Still have Zakuro and Ino Boku on my backlist...

    I probably watched a few episodes here and there of various shows, but the last good one I watched in full was Minami-ke Tadaima. Before that it was Tari Tari. To be honest I have no idea what the definition of a 'moe show' is, but hell TT had the type of moe I like in spades.

    But yeh in general, I've been having terrible luck with "moe" shows lately. Or maybe my standards are too high.

    Wait, I've been complaining about this for two years now .

    Highlight the white text .

    Oh you don't know me if you think I'm ironic, witty and "Archon-Wing" like most of the time. Should see me in LoL and how much I rage at the smallest of shit. Reth does too though lol.

    I also said I like the artstyle of Atelier, not the games itself. But that's more because I like Kel Mishida's art. I don't play JRPGs unless they called Persona or from Atlus . And Demon Souls/Dark Souls if those count.

    On that topic, Rethice hasn't posted on this forum for god knows how long. We also actually have pretty different tastes in anime, particularly when it comes to titles with emphasis on "moe", we like and we constantly like to give each other shit for it.

    Examples: He likes Log Horizon and No Game No Life, I do not. He likes Nagi no Asu Kara, I do not. I like Hyouka, Hanasaku Iroha, Uchouten Kazoku, he does not (what a heathen for liking the "worse" PA shows and disliking the "better" ones ). I like Ping Pong and Shin Sekai Yori, he does not. I like Makoto Shinkai movies, he does not. He's a shipper, I am not!

    There's a few titles where we both like Psycho Pass, Fate Zero, Spice and Wolf, Mushishi, Usagi Drop and the like but they are not too common .

    I think he has more common in tastes with you actually. Just don't mention Hyouka. He's been giving me shit for recommending it to his anime club (didn't get voted out and was finished in its entirety) for about 3 months straight. Said it was the worst Kyoani series since K-on .
