    Starting a new job next week. Been spending a lot of time preparing, though I've also attended several conventions (photographed some interesting Monogatari and Love Live shoots, got excited over the fact I can still find Hanasaku Iroha and Nagi no Asukara cosplays on occassion) and hosted a LAN party recently (fired up Battlefield 1942 for the first time in years on the weekend, still my favourite game in the franchise though I suspect if I went on real servers rather than playing four players + bots it would become obvious I'm out of practice damn quick).

    I haven't had a ton of thoughts about moe to post recently, despite the fact that my favourite show of 2015 fit the moe category (Koufuku Graffiti) and I've been totally digging shows like Sansha Sanyou, This Art Club has a Problem, Amanchu and Flying Witch.

    BTW, I was reading your conversation with Tempester re: GuP and I have to ask - is that scene actually in Russian in the anime? If so, I'm tempted to show it to a friend who is a native speaker (lived in Moscow until age 17 or so) to get his reaction to it.

    Episode 19 so far. I'm trying to watch at least one episode of Aikatsu every day. Don't feel like rushing the show but I want to stay consistent with it.

    I wasn't that impressed with Aikatsu at first but it's starting to grow on me lately. It really takes advantage of its massive length and delivers a lot of fun slice-of-life moments and gradual character development, which gives it a certain advantage over Love Live which overly limits its potential with 1-cour seasons (I'd be delighted over a 39 or 50-episode LL show), and The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls which ruined all the fun by drowning it out with constant melodrama.

    The massive jump in 3DCG model quality that came with episode 9 helped a lot, now instead of dreading those obligatory dance sequences I'm actually looking forward to them. Still not fond of special appeals though, they seem to take away from the dance and are just a bunch of flashing colors to me.

    I'm very glad to see you enjoyed it! GuP is a total gem of an anime.

    I agree that Hana's family drama was one of the worst aspects of the show. Fortunately the staff knew their priorities and didn't give it any more than 1/3 of an episode of focus. On a rewatch though I appreciated the Nishizumi family drama a lot more because of Maho's subdued sisterly love and support she displayed for Miho throughout the tournament. It made the resolution of the last episode very satisfying.

    Don't forget to watch the Anzio OVA (Kore ga Hontou no Anzio-sen Desu!) before the movie. It's an essential part of the anime.

    P.S. Aikatsu's Yurika is a total cutie.

    I much prefer AK's no-nonsense subs to Commie's distracting wehraboo subs, but whatever floats your boat (or your aircraft carrier).

    After years of playing WoT I don't even mind seeing TDs or SPGs like the StuG colloquially being called tanks, it's basically the armored vehicle equivalent of calling an orchestral piece a "song".

    Wow, that's a beautiful version of Panzerlied! Just listening to it makes me feel like invading France.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on GuP.

    Edit: Yeah, the T-34 was so cool that the Germans ripped off its design to make the Panther.

    Is Girls Unz Panzer that good?
    Yes, it's really that good. Although it might not be immediately obvious at first since the first episode isn't a great opener, the anime pretty much snowballs in awesomeness over the course of the show from a cute and novel idea into mind-blowingly cool and heavily detailed and strategic tank fights culminating into what I believe is one of the most solid and well-made endings for a TV anime ever. And that's not even counting the Anzio OVA and the movie sequel which ramp up the awesome tankservice and action to insane levels (the movie has the best action in any anime this year, period).

    I'm kind of a WW2 geek (having read a lot of books, watched a movies and ton of video games from Medal of Honour/Call of Duty (but when it was good) to Hearts of Iron franchise (Super detailed grand strategy), so I'm just worried moeified cute girls doing cute WW2 things would just piss me off instead
    I doubt this anime will turn you off, the combination of cute girls and military action is perfectly done. If you like WW2, then you're absolutely good to go on this. This anime REWARDS history nerds, the director is a perfectionist and it shows in the sheer attention to small details and myriad historical nods and references. GuP isn't just a cash cow (it is that too), it is a remarkable work of love and effort and excellent directing that most anime productions cannot hold a candle to.

    Hello everyone. Fourth anime convention writeup for this year. ^^
    Just finished uploading pics that I got from Otaku Expo 2016 (august).
    Please click the link if you want to see.

    Oh, and there's a Rem and Ram news at the bottom of the writeup.

    Yeah it's very slow so far but I don't mind it. And I'm aware that the CG animation improves a lot over the anime's length so I can tolerate the eyecancer of the early CG dances. Also the first ED is awesome!

    In all seriousness though, I am interested to see what you have to say about the RRR group romance thread when you are able to get around to it.

    1. Praise Jun Maeda as an excellent writer.

    2. Hold up Glasslip as the greatest work PAW ever did.

    3. Laud the adaptation choices of KyoAni in the past few years.
