Yeah, but that's only because his clothes were part of his character design (and also according to legend, his shirt is woven with Gundanium threads and as such was almost as indestructabe as he was.)

Kona-chan actualy do own many different clothes. The fact that she kept wearing the same shirt for four days would have passed unnoticed, except for the fact that everyone else in the same time period updated their clothes daily!

Well, the manga shows all of them (even Kona) wearing quite a lot of different clothes... but Kona clearly has at least one set of "sluffing around the house at the computer" set of favorite fuzzy wear.

As I mentioned, this would be plausable except she weared it out to visit her friend's house! After not washing it for four days...

We can say the same about Ryo Saeba or Kenshiro or any staples from the big classics.
I assume it was a time we did not care so much for our protagonists's fashion sense.

There you go, patience is a virtue people. Just as I thought Kanon also got swapped out too. That's the price to pay, but it also makes sense. When everybody suddenly has the same series avatar you know its time to act. Though I don't know if its popular in the sense that people think its a masterpiece so much in the sense that it has that Kyoto Animation flair for meme's and discussion therof. Kind of like what Nightengale said, you can't fail when you always do exactly what your fans want. It's a good relationship I guess, but like Nightengale also said it has its drawbacks. It works though.

I'd also like to thank Skane for making this so I can put it to good use. No problem with a good self-ribbing. Hopefully he doesn't mind.

Vallen, I'm a lunatic? Is that in the "Crazy" wacky way or the "CRAZY!" psycopath way?

Also in case people are wondering I have 11% of the posts made thus far in this thread or 7 pages worth total and growing exponentially by the episode. What happens if I up and leave? Before people want to go and accuse me of hating on the series and wanting to see it die out of a long dead vendetta against moe, think of how far that went in contributing to the show getting its own board.

I am also glad because now the series has its own image board, where all the goofy pictures and knockoffs of pictures can go. I expect that thread to be larger than the series thread before long and its good that it will remain seperate from the main discussions. So there everybody wins.

Now everybody commence the discussion of Gundam Wing. I mean, Hokuto No Ken....er what was this series called again. City Hunter....no that's not it .

As Devil's advocate here: How dirty could it possibly get? She's sitting in front of a computer for 4 days. Ask any food-service worker how often they wash their work-polo... (I'll tell you now, the average isn't gonna be anything less than 3 days unless they're a neat freak)

It is amazing how he get his clothes back, in a dystopic future, everytime he tears them off when he is pissed.

Speaking of that section, have you noticed that everyone is the same height as Miyuki?

I'm a bit amused by all the debate over how many of the references inside L.S. are referring to other KyoAni productions/industry memes/culturalmemes/nothing at all really. One of the reasons I like their work is that they regularly have tidbits that exist on more than one level at once. Like the song lyric "So much mind on the matter/ The spirit gets forgotten about", or the phrase "fuer grissa ost drauka" ... or that bit from the OP, "seihin sanpi", there's a lot of stuff in here with multiple meanings that are distinct and equally valid.
Miyuki is terribly genki and kawaii. At the same time the show mocks her for causing such mo-e reactions in the viewers, even while she's appreciated for the exact same characteristics. Additionally, she has that anti-stereotype characteristic of being the extra-smart girl, a role usually played by bitter sarcastic pipsqueaks like Ruri from Nadesico. I think that's what I like best about shows like this and AzuDai, the parts where the characters go against the stereotypes they initially seem to fall into. Like Osaka's fascination with morbid topics, heheheh.

One last note: People are increasingly misconstruing the meaning of the word moe. It refers to an excessive fascination with something attractive. Line from a Japanese show: "Basically, I'm very moe about ankles." Limitations of translation apply, but the fact is that moe is a feeling generated in the audience. The character themselves might be terribly genkiand kawaii, but, um, moe is a feeling! It's not a subgenre of anime.

Hmmm.. well her waistline is the only one that isn't visible in that shot,and her knees are higher up. I think the mistake is more that Konata isn't noticeable shorter than the rest of them.

(this should be in the music thread, perhaps?)

Have you seen wind's sub? Theirs seems a slight bit more sensible, though idiot me already tossed the file. Only thing I remember is during the talking bit you left out, there's a mention of "Drum Machine" where afk uses a RPG reference. And there's no "steel beater"/"iron wand" or whatever it is that I really don't understand what it could mean.

I disagree about the sexual connotation of the opening. Seems to me it's just a random absurdly genki parody of a cheer.

Yeah, I just moved my original post to the music forum. One note though, the sexual connotations are just in the first stanza, not the whole opening. A modest rephrasing of the first stanza produces:
Super-short skirt looks really good, doesn't it? Although old-style uniforms are a turn-off. Go for it, give it all you got! Make sure you put it back in after you take it out. Sweat (hoo) sweat (hoo), and shout Darling darling please!

:coughs: That seems pretty obvious to me.

God I love that show. It's more like his clothes actually explode off. I had always wondered that too about them being back in the next episode. Best not to think about it actually.

What I have considered is how marketable a Konata's limited edition used shirt item might be as a piece of merchandise. I think there are just enough creeps and fans with bizarre tastes out there that might purchase such a thing. The question would be how would they make it and who would make it.

Those lyrics now amuse me because these are the things they say before doing there little march on Japan. World Domination perhaps through loli seduction.

I'm hoping that after Clannad, KyoAni decides to do a sci-fi mecha series. They'll call it Mad Nug, it'll have one male lead that is mindlessly exuberant and dedicated to the cause, and one male lead who's a whiny dog of a teenager that hates his father. Most of the plot will revolve around juvenile angst that is inexplicably solved by hopping into the mechs (that these boys have bizarro godlike abilities to pilot), and defeating the invading aliens by using their mech's secret weapons (that require activation by loudly yelling the proper command). They'll be supported by a ship's crew that consists entirely of stock KyoAni lolis.

Then Kaioshi-sama will finally love KyoAni for having made a completely original, non-derivative series.

You'v obviously never seen Armored Trooper Votoms, Escaflowne or Macross Plus have you. Not all Mecha series are like what you've just described. In fact I wouldn't even watch the series you just theorized because I would take it as an insult to the genre to be so uncreative. That's the typical attitude I see though is that mecha series can never be deep or intricate and always feature teenage angst and overpowered units. Mad Nug is also a terrible name for a series. Good god man come up with something better than that.

What brought this on anyway? I don't even remember saying anything relating to mecha in my last posts.

And good lord where the hell is everybody. They all just done gone and buggered off after the series gets its own board.
