Clannad – Kotomi Arc – Before Yesterday, I Saw A Rabbit, Yesterday, A Deer, And Today, the Interior of Digiboy's Anus

If there’s one thing that can absolutely be said about Ichinose Kotomi, it’s that she has amazing feet. Her feet (as well as her knees) are plastered all over the arc, even in the parts where she is a little kid. Damn, those lolicons at Kyoto Animation know how to get my jeans tight. (protip: I never wear jeans.)

Clannad – Fuuko Arc – The Hardest I've Ever Cried During an Anime (AND Anime Moments That Briefly Made Me a Woman)

(PLEASE NOTE: The first person who says anything along the lines of ‘wait till x episode, it’s x’ will be fucked in the lung by a tentacle monster. I already know all of the spoilers for this show, I already know where I’m gong to cry, shut the fuck up. I fucking hate those comments. Incidentally, if you haven’t seen Clannad, don’t fear spoilers. They’ll just make you want to watch the show more.)

K-On Episode 1 = (Hyakko – Negatives) + (Manabi x (Lucky Star)^2) [RAW]

Disclaimer: I don’t do screen caps. Be glad I’m blogging episodically at all.

K-On episode 1 fully lives up to my expectations, and those expectations were pretty high, so I’m already loving this show. Which is saying a lot since I watched it raw and therefor understood the bare minimum of the dialog. However, I’ve seen more than enough anime and KyoAni shows to know how things work in a slice-of-life comedy, and thankfully KyonAni’s highly animated characters emote more than enough to tell the story with their hands. Indeed, this may be KyoAni’s most hyper-actively animated show yet, with clothes and hair ruffling all over, but it never gets to the point of retardation like Kannagi did (constantly).

Unrepresentative Studio Screw-ups

I am of the mindset that an opinion should be made based on research in any situation. I hate to hear people bitch that ‘all mecha sucks’ when they’ve seen exactly two shows from the genre (this seems to be the case for many.) I am sick of people calling a show ‘cliche’ when the show is intended to be homage or parody. These are all things that a little research would show to anyone. Whether or not you like the show is based all on you, but before you open your mouth to the world, you’d best know what you’re talking about. That’s why I’ve gotten rather tired of people making uneducated remarks about studios, especially those that supposedly ‘suck.’
