    Hello who are those 2 in your avatars from?

    I sure some of it must be the case, but is it really hard to type an extra word or even just a "IMO"?

    And like you said if they really have backing for it they can easily defend themselves and not just disappear out of sight.

    Really, like I said in the my post I'm not even a Yuuki fan and staff really don't really interest me too much other then been use as a tool for me judge how long I'll stay with a series before I drop.

    On offense, the trend I've seen is more that if they have tendency to offer solid backing they will usually talk back, or at worse leaving a short message that this is not their thing and be done with it and don't check back and they usually won't condamn a series when the only info we have is the staff and a 1-min prototype test footage.

    Heck you PM me and we are have a civil discussion, (sort of, since now it seem like I'm just venting off. )

    AW stated his case, and I agree with him somewhat and there are plenty of other posters who can't stop raving about Denpa Kanojo which I actually didn't like as adaption. (but loved it as LN)

    Granted, my personality is the type that if you rub me the wrong way and I'm gonna defend myself, and I'm tend to be more of a stats person where sales and polls/popularity means more to me than personal opinion, but I'm perfectly willing to accept or at least agree to disagree if they can back it up with "some" reason.

    But somehow I just feel there are not very many people like us who's fully willing to debate and defend and not just spit some shit out and call it a day.

    Hell, I got negative reputation points for that post of mine that we are discussing right now on my reason for defend Yoshino and Yuuki.

    The dude didn't even got the gut to leave his ID in the reason column and his only reason was "this is the dumbest possible answer with the dumbest possible reasons".

    And that's not even mentioning that there was no follow up posts on that, nor the PM conversation that we are having right now and it happens way more often than I can count.

    Last time I checked this is still a free country and just as people like him has freedom of speech to diss people, so do I.

    And that is really where I have a problem. The freaking Chunibyo crowd that is all over the freaking place who assume they know ACG and has the experience but they really don't.

    BTW, I woke up this morning and someone slapped in a red mark. Ah, well... for some, the biggest fear about 0048 is that it could go the way of IM@S: Xenoglossia.

    In that case, I'll have to start wearing a fireproof suit should 0048 comes out.

    Agree on Jeter. Let's get this out first.

    As for popularity, some poster already posted before on how Yuuki is one of the most followed male VA and constantly rank in front on poll, which is evident enough.

    and while popularity and be interpreted by sales along. The fact most of Yoshino's projects sold well showed that he's work is at least popular.

    Winning award is also undeniable fact. You have various works/people compete for that award, yet they are the ones that win. And it the only way those working in entertainment field can get acknowledged for quality and not popularity (sales).

    It one thing if you are saying that awards are not valid because they are still based on 3rd party factors. Which is fine, but it is still the best way for acknowledge quality in those fields.

    Put it this way, winning titles in sports can still be argued about it legitimacy. There are enough incident where a change of call can impact the outcome and the team/player that won titles are not really the best player/team that year.

    In Yankee's case it can be argued that Yankee's success are mainly because of their market they are in and money they are willing to spend and and other outside factors as well and not really the team or the franchise but more of the market and structure of the Major League.

    Really, what is the most important thing on making anime? or any ACG for that matter? It's making the project appeal to others (popularity) so it can make money(sales).

    To that point, the few people that keep dissing Yoshino has yet to offer any reason why Yoshino sucks.

    I don't know if you've been follow the entire thread, but there is a small crowd where all they keep bring up was Guilty Crown yet refuse to give him credit on his work in Macross Frontier, Codes Geass, Mai-franchises, Kuroshitsuji, or Denpa-Kanojo. They even bring SEED Destiny into it when he was only responsible for a the screenplay in a handful of episodes. When other bring up those aforementioned series then they push it aside to marketing or other members of the staff for the success of those series. How does that making any sense or even fair?

    Going back to Jeter, the only reason we can back up that he suck defensively is because there are stats like (Ultimate) Zone Ratings and Range Factors that are in contrast to the players and coaches' eye tests. Otherwise that is still just personal opinion and that is really my point here.

    I don't have issue on bashing Yoshino and Yuuki, but at least offer some backing to it or say it out front that it's just their personal opinion. Not just sprung one-liners and call it a fact.

    What a coincidence, I wound up recalling that trailer again with this one:
    In her HMV interview, Ao-chan was asked to suggest what people might buy from the HMV store, besides this CD. Here are her answers:

    CD -- "Fairy Encyclopedia," Kanno Youko's sound track for the game Napple Tale. (clip)
    DVD -- Inception; also, Transformers

    Yeah ... let's see ... UTW, Doki, Evetaku, Licca and Oyatsu are a few of the groups I know of off the top of my head that still do their own translation.

    There DO exist a few versions out there of the DVD version with Hitode subs ... but most of the torrents are deader than a coffin nail (to quote the venerable Mr. Dickens).

    Yeah I don't tend to pay much mind to pre-airing reception. There's little to get out of it aside from what everyone's expectations of the show are.

    After it airs is when I pay attention, because there's always the possibility of something that ends up being more interesting than it appears to be.

    But I guess I'll admit when you have SHAFT of all studios making an apparent magical girl series, I guess expectations may be different considering the surreality of their works.

    Hmm ... you are right - I have not heard of the show your avy is from.

    BTW - as regards Erin ... a whole boatload of things are going to happen to her from ep 5 till the end (as you no doubt expect).

    FTR it is true I am not really into psychological sci fi stuff any more ... although I had more of a taste for those things some years back. Ah well. We grow into new tastes and grow out of old ones from time to time, while some things bizarrely remain the same. :\

    Re-watched sketchbook full colors the other day ... it is a pity that the subs I enjoy the most (hitode-doremi-toki combo) are difficult to find nowadays, and the ones I enjoyed the least (spoonsubs) are the main version out there that have been used for the dvd releases. Hmph. Ah well - just pickiness on my part no doubt....

    To be honest I am grateful for most anyone's efforts who does sub/translation work. (Yes, anyone - even if we do not like the result the work that goes into it is extremely difficult.)

    I think the biggest surprise about the video for me was how smoothly she transitioned into character. Probably won't get around to watching Moretsu Pirates until next time my group meets because of upcoming assignments (exception: Nisemongoatari, Another, and Ano Natsu because I watch those when I have my girlfriend over) but I'll keep an eye out.

    No Zessica cosplay on the blogs I read but 3dbooru has one Zessica cosplayer:

    I think Inori's outfit is more outrageous than Zessica's though. Zessica's outfit doesn't look ready to fall off any second.

    KanaHana at a recent event in Hong Kong:!

    Also, I recently found a Kurata/Kage duo on a cosplay blog I read:
    Though at time I wonder if it crosses the line between cosplay and roleplay.
