    I'm not ready for "suck" just yet. But I was hoping Hisaya would stick with his usual level of moe, which was amped for 2006 but would be pretty mainstream today.

    Shirabako is definitely a step up from Glasslip but I'm still not that into it. I'm just not feeling that invested in the characters or they're story so far. And IMO PA Works shows only really work when there's some emotional investment - they aren't like Gochusa or Hanayamata that can get by on warm fuzzies alone (and even those shows sometimes resort to a broader emotional palette).

    It's hard for me to pick a studio to "bet" on these days. While unlike you I actually liked Nagi no Asukara in the end, the combination of PAW screwing up the kind of show I would have thought they'd nail in Glasslip and Shirabako feeling relatively uninspiring makes me worry they've hit a rut. Brains Base seems to be hibernating. Shaft's produced more of my favourite anime than anyone else, but I feel like their "A Game" is tied up in their megafranchises - Bakemonogatari and Madoka - for the moment. It's hard to imagine them hitting it out of the ballpark for me again. Actually I find myself once again placing dark horse bets on Kyoto. I don't think anyone has matched what they pulled off in Hyouka and even when watching lesser shows like Amagi, K-On, and Kyoukai no Kanata I still feel like I enjoyed them more than I would have if someone else had animated them. Need Tamako Love Story subs so I can decide whether it has the magic KyoAni touch plz k thx.

    BTW I also decided to check out Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji because I'm not so much offended by the tendency of some women to like douchebag love interests as fascinated by it. And erm... wow. Two observations:

    1) Aside from the cell phone thing, the main character all like "I'm not going to take advantage of you... that much". He's like the cheap non-alcoholic beer of abusers - no buzz, all bad taste. (I'm not really fond of beer to begin with - I go for rum and coke at school socials when available)
    2) You know what gets to me about this show? It's not that the main romantic interest is a douchebag. It's that every single fucking consequential character I can recall her interacting with so far is a douchebag. And if they acted nice at some point, that's only to emphasize how much of a douchebag they are when they eventually turn douchebag. Ugh. I could take some "bad romance" - like I said, I actually find that kind of fascinating - but not this over the top crapsack world approach.

    I did make it through the first two episodes in a "can't look away from the trainwreck" kind of way. I'm hoping I don't head back for more. At least it's crap that makes me feel something though, which means it's still better than crap that doesn't.

    (Also, looking back at that, my view of the show are kind of weirdly meta, aren't they?)

    I unfortunately didn't finish it, simply because it was quite taxing on my brain due to the prose and vocabulary in Japanese. Suffice to say, since there is only a patch for the first chapter (rabbit hole), I think it is best to try it out yourself since... it is perhaps one of the most difficult VN to rate, considering it is a clusterfuck (for both good and not so good reasons).

    I wouldn't recommend reading it without actual japanese knowledge or proper translation at your disposal.

    In general, I would say the medium is far less limited than LN by a long shot, even if people will argue that there are a lot of forced stuff/pandering content due to the eroge tag being present 90% of the time.
    If you put that kind of stuff aside, you have a lot of interesting stories, be it classic and other obscures titles.

    It is always a good source of reading entertainment throughout the season.

    It never gets old for me. That, and throwing random shit at a unhappy raging Pocari is more fun than a satisfied Pocari.

    So Shirobako being much better than expected so far. It looks chance of chickens being in the show, but we get doughnuts galore? Acceptable replacement I suppose. Feels like you won't rage on this show, so next PAW show you should, right?

    I'm sure staff from studios wish they could go around and drift in the streets to fetch key frames and whatever else.

    This coming wednesday a series called Yuuki Yuna will air it's first ep. It is a series that has been on my radar as a possibility since before the season began and curiously was the first new series officially picked up by CR before the season began. Maybe that will work out for you?

    Yeah I saw the first episode when it aired and honestly it looked like the kind of show that doesn't sit well with me. Plus I'm tired of having Sakurai Takahiro voicing those kinds of protagonists, sure he's perfect for the role, but since these characters are all alike, at least switch the voice.

    Will watch episode 2 to see how low it goes. It's main salvation so far is Itou Kanae, who's nearly (undeservedly) disappeared from the scenes.
