    The whole fractale production was a huge mess,Okada is credited as scriptwriter (and indeed some of her trademarks made it in) but a lot of it is in fact Yamakan and the ending is 100% Yamakan.
    Really? I didn't realize the ending was Yamakan's idea - that's the part where the anime really lost it for me. I'm still not sure what he was attempting to do... the priest character worked better when he was just a blatant stand in for the lunatic fringe of the Kannagi fanbase.

    Can't say that I was totally impressed with Okada's performance either - Enri's ecchi flopped with me - although I actually hold that Clain in a dress is the most moe thing in the entire show - I like KanaHana but Nessa was just too much of a moeblob. Actually in light of Yamakan's stance on how the industry is too heavily invested in moe, I felt a little bit insulted, if you're going to include it anyway after a statement like that put in a bit of effort. Course, I come from the crowd that wants moe to get more sophisticated rather than go away, which is part of the reason why I'm such a huge Ohana fan.

    (Course, people might interpret the increased sophistication as "less moe" anyway - I recently observed Ohana reminds me more of Lavie in Last Exile than the major characters in the new Last Exile do and I think we know which one is considered "stereotypically" moe.)

    She weirds me out though. I stopped watching Hana-Saku Iroha because of that stupid bondage think she pulled in Ep3. I think there's hints towards her hatred of Yamakan in it too. AnoHana, way too much to rant about in the 10 minutes I've reached before rage quitting every time.

    I did understand Liar Game was rather altered in parts in the adaptation. I'm well aware of Yokoya's role/persona being altered. I did get the feeling Fukunaga was more twisted in the manga. I did feel Nao's development is somewhat underdone in the adaptation.

    That said...I love this show. Akiyama is freaking FABULOUS, smart as heck and acted with precision and grace. Nao is another good acting choice. Fukunaga - he may seem comical to you. Not to me - he is amusing but I have always thought of him and sinister and quite a devil. And let's be frank - cross-dressing may work in anime but in live action? Not going to happen. Japan is still a conservative society and then some. Katsuragi was very good at being the kniving, twisted, tyrannical bitch. Goldtooth was an amusing sideshow. Black Cat was very good at being the silent helper. I loved the music and how it mixed with the use of neon lights, distorted colours, repetition of certain moments - how the locations were somewhat stylish yet chaotic and foreboding. The manga may be better - but as far as live-action goes, this is one of the better ones going around by a long shot.

    On a final note, I think they went live-action due to One Outs not succeeding as an anime. I liked One Outs but most people I know - who happen to dig Kaiji and Akagi - just didn't get into One Outs. Baseball seems to polarise people very quickly.

    Sorry, I knew you were watching MP, we've discussed it. Brain freeze.

    Yes, fight the urge. Don't want spoilers. As for Haruka, I just finished watching Ano Natsu and damn, she's good - amazing is a better word. She's as good at disappearing into a character as anyone in the business.

    Couple more cosplay photos:
    It's hard to see, but she actually is wearing two colours of contactshere.
    UNLIMITED CUTENESS WORKS. (Probably should have blurred the background so you can't see the other cosplayers but I'm not really adept with manual focus and my camera camera isn't really well suited to those sort of effects either.)

    Okada writing BRS....if one of the main chars turns out to be a trap, I riot. I like traps to a point but Okada's fetishes/tendencies are extreme even amongst anime fandom.

    Are you watching Mouretsu? I'm semi-ambivalent about the show and the character, but I was shocked when I found out Tomatsu-san was the 12 year-old Princess. What an amazing chameleon she is...

    Whilst on the topic of HanaKana VAing, my favourite role of her was Amano Touko in the Bungaku Shojo movie and OVAs. Lovely character Touko was, and Bungaku Shojo was one of the few highlights of 2010 as well.

    New cosplay photo. I'll actually admit to darkening the shadows on this one, the original didn't have as much contrast as I'd like:

    I still haven't made it into ten minutes into Ep1 of AnoHana...More's the pity I told the pres we might as well finally freaking play it at the local club so that the new gens stop whining about why we haven't.

    Mari Okada sounds like Cypress Hill - Insane in the Brain on hypermode.

    BRS OVA was one of the worst things I saw last year. This TV series...any improvements?

    Yes, I am admitting I haven't watched a single thing from 2012 yet except for new Chihayafuru eps.
