Re: AP 714 - Eyes

Oooh, a topic I happen to really love. I find that certain modern anime character designs to be extremely aesthetic, particularly due to better computerized tools for Animation that allow for more complex styles. The theme you'll note in my answers is that I prefer as much realism as 2D animation wi...

Re: AP 713 - Summer 2021 Anime

I am going to say Peach Boy Riverside (the topic poster child above) is one new show we're planning to watch through the entire season. It's an interesting take on the Momotaro fable with decent animation and shonen-style action. It doesn't hurt that many of the female characters, especially "S...

Re: AP 712 - Game -> Anime

My all-time favorite would have to be, of course, the Fate series (Fate/Stay Night, Unlimited Bladeworks, Heaven's Feel, etc.). These were based on visual novels that were just _barely_ what one would consider to be games. Still, there are better choices for actual video games that became an anime m...

AlWAYS a fan of the kitsune ears: https://kawaii-mobile.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Spice-and-Wolf.Holo_.640x960-8.jpg https://external-preview.redd.it/d92hOrJLtSCoXC1LZVZnLXA-aQUVGhFWNh_F0swUB0U.jpg?width=640&crop=smart&auto=webp&s=e5b58ba3428b7ebe97ee4f69d83a86e9a4f5320b But I have ...

Re: AP 710 - Fan Encounters

I can't think of any stories off hand, since its been a number of years now since I went to Animazement, or some other convention or any other venue where I would have interacted with other anime fans in person. I will say that I have raised my sons to become bona fide otaku anime fans, such that th...

Re: AP 709 - Top Shotas

I'm drawing a blank on this one. All I can think of is the Elric brothers from FMA when they were younger, but that would mean they're not really shota (younger looking than their real age) -- except maybe Edward later is so short he might be mistaken for a shota, in which case one had better not me...

Re: AP 708 - Top Lolis

I feel like we've asked this before, because it seems like certain names come to mind that I've already mentioned. I will not to mention characters that are not true lollis or are better classified as imoutos. I think a few of my all-time favs come to mind: (1) Illyasviel "Illya" Von Einzb...

Re: AP 707 - Guilty Pleasure

Ah, too many to list... I will give the most recent of examples, some of which always induce "the cringe" in many others: (3) Domestic Girlfriend ( Domesutikku na Kanojo ). This was just sensationalized soap-opera drama, with needless over-reations, misunderstandings, intrigue and scandal-...

Re: AP 706 - uhh...

Yes, I can think of one right away. My eldest son has been trying desparately to get me to watch the new (Spring 2021) series Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song . And though I've watched about three episodes and can concede that, so far, it seems quite good, I just have too many other series I am watching wh...

Re: AP 705 - Demon Lord

I think I'm going to have to go with Mao from Maoyu ( Maoyū Maō Yūsha , or " Demon King and Hero "). She is an adorable twist on what a "demon lord" is supposed to be like, breaking every trope that the titular hero, Yusha, was expecting. She proves rational, intelligent, witty a...
