    Lol, it wasn't necessarily that, but this general attitude of "anime is better".

    I'm curious as to if you have any other insights on early moe stuff. Most accounts I see tend to focus on a few key shows like To Heart, Kanon 2002, and Azumanga, plus what people found moe about characters in shows like CCS and Eva. But the shows produced by that Pony Canyon label makes me think that the label was home to a lot of ecchi/harem 10-15 years back, and people just don't find most of it worth remembering. I do know that Abenobashi made fun of moe elements way back in 2002.

    I'm actually kind of tempted to dig up and watch some of that stuff just to see what it can contribute to the "should harem/ecchi shows be considered moe" debate, but I don't really have the time these days. About the only really old moe stuff - let's say maybe pre-04/05 - I've watched is Azumanga and Yamibou, which is a pretty narrow sample.

    I didn't catch it from the camera gear, but him talking in the comments about why he prefers Premiere Pro to FCP X and using a 15 inch retina MBP suggested to me that he might have experience in the field. I maybe should have caught it from the camera, considering that on the stills side I definitely notice the difference between the photos I get from my Lumix LX7 and those that come from lesser point and shoots.

    Yeah, I think you creatives have it easier there, as do people in some IT areas. One guy I know from the local anime scene worked for a Seattle area IT startup for a while - Microsoft money, basically - and said his desk at work contained, in addition to his work computer, a drawer of green tea, a Yotsuba calender, and a display case containing some of his anime figures.

    The second half of that episode was pure gold. Daily Lives of Zombie Dandy. The funniest parts were the insurance snipers and the very end with George Romero in the credits.

    Best show of the season that isn't a carryover or a sequel by a landslide.

    Just saw your posts regarding Kenneth Bolido's youtube channel. Just a heads up, he started off as a tech reviewer (by far his most popular vids if you checked his older vids) and since he goes to a film school, is the reason why his videos has high production values. Channel name was originally Fullocircle and Fulloalt, with the later being used for extraneous hobbies which also included anime. Now he renamed fulloalt to fulloanime when he discovered he was really into anime and that's where he ended up.

    His Non Non Biyori video had some astute observations, but I'm not quite sure I'd grant him the "pretentious" part of the title. Not enough theory on what moe is and what makes certain characters moe, which is kind of my bread and butter.

    Here's the difference:
    "I like Chinami because she's short. I think she is moe."
    "Based on my observations of how fans act when they say they are feeling moe and the word's inherent "to bud/to burn" pun, I conclude that moe is a feeling that combines warmth and strong enamorement. Characteristics that can trigger this feeling among fans is when a character include small size and a warm, lively personality. Chinami from Golden Time exhibits both traits. Therefore, Chinami is a moe character."

    That's actually a bit more concise than I've sometimes been in the past. Maybe I need to say something about how her warm lively personality is a good match for moe's connotation of "budding" or "blooming".
    And come to think of it, that's actually an easy one because I only have to concern myself with one character. Hard mode would involve coming up with a general theory of how moe characters exhibit "blooming". Which is tricky because you have to come up with traits that link together a vast variety of characters (Think about HSI - even among Ohana, Minko and Nako you have a wide range of personalities) while still being defineable (to stave off the accusation the term can be applied to everything).

    BTW, do you have any tips for how to introduce people who work in stodgy business environments to anime? It's unfortunately sort of the culture of the industry I'm training for and I'm not sure I completely want to hide my hobbies.

    On another note, NagiKara thread continues to explode with posts. Don't mind too much since it's a quality series. I wish the majority weren't about shipping though :/

    I recall Chihayafuru and Death Billiards OVA being Madhouse and those weren't LNs.

    Well, never mind my rant. I'm just the type of person who doesn't like it when things with graphic violence as main content. It's simply just not my cup of tea.
