Re: Summer Anime 2009

On paper, I kind of liked Rosia de Campo... mainly because it inverted the whole trope. Of course, it just ended up being another Harem series.

Thankfully, we have Bakemonogatari... although I guess she's not a Vampire after the first arc.

Rosario + Vampire was more interesting for all the crazy amount of fanservice than the fact it had vampires.

Also yeah, Bakemonogatari is a great show, looking forward to Shaft releasing the final 3 episodes.

Yeah Bakemono was great. In many ways the art style reminded me of another shaft production, Ef and its sequel, another great show

Bakemonogatari's 13th episode is now released, just in case somebody hasn't found it yet.

Yeah, I had a similar reaction, though less extreme. The movie did a much better job of telling the story as


I have to say though little Ushio is just adorable.

Clannad is a moe themed comedy/drama, it's what Kyoto Animation did before K-On. It's second season, After Story's ending is somewhat "love-it-or-hate-it".

I'll probably check that out someday. It sounds like a better way to go.

Oh my God, yes!

After Story's ending is somewhat "love-it-or-hate-it".


The point is, not only did it detract from the story, it was kind of unnecessary. If you get right down to it, the whole Clannad arc isn't really about Okazaki and Nagisa but rather Okazaki and Shio, or rather, the parent/guardian, child dyad.

Also, at least recently, it seems as if studios feel obligated to put in some sort of sci-fi element when one isn't needed or even warranted. I think this is one such case.

Re: Summer Anime 2009

Yeah, I agree, it just seems like they finished the story at that certain point and went "wait a minute we still have X number of episodes left, lets make somethin' up." Unfortunately, that was adapted from the game instead so I don't know how to explain it other than bad writing.

The only dowside to watching the movie is that it's animated by TOEI and well it's an obvious decline in quality from Kyoto Animation.
