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...

Re: AP 711 - Ears

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...

Re: AP 704 - AMV's

I got nothin'. I do love a boatload of OP's and ED's for Anime series. I have purchased multitudes of Anime soundtracks as well. But I can't think of any AMV's in particular, especially third-party produced content, that have yet to get me to remember them. Not really my thing. Perhaps one day somet...

Re: AP 703 - Spring 2021

Of the new shows that we are watching and enjoying eagerly, I think Ijiranaide, Nagatoro-san is the primary series this season. It's pretty much a cringe-fest and often quite painful to watch, but it has its moments. And yes, we do find ourselves laughing. https://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/anime/19...
