  1. I hope that's 101F and not 101C. Although I guess if it was 101C you wouldn't be around to post any messages.
  2. I've now finished rewatching Little Busters and Little Busters Refrain. When I first watched this series I wasn't all that impressed with it, but I didn't totally dislike it so I gave it a second chance and now I quite like it and enjoy watching it. But, and it's a big but, my initial problem with the series remains. From the time Rin receives the first note telling her that there is a "secret to this world" we are aware that all is not what it seems and there is something "off" about the events in the story. However, even though I know what the "secret of this world" is I'm always left with the feeling that what is "off" is not the storyline but the pacing and directing of the series which somehow just seems to miss the mark. Little Busters Refrain is, in my view, much better in this respect and if the whole series had been directed in the same way it would have been much better overall. I believe that if Kyoto Animation had made the series it would have been a VN adaption to stand along side Kanon and Clannad/Clannad After Story, not that I'm saying that JC Staff made a bad job of it, but I think they just missed the mark.
  3. If you're referring to the synopsis at the top of the 'details' page then yes I agree they could be often be better.
  4. I find MAL to be a useful resource about an anime that I've heard about and am interested in finding out if it would be one I'd like. The reviews are often informative, but like all reviews you have to read between the lines a bit to try and decide if the series under review is of a genre that the reviewer either likes or dislikes. I also find that some of the synopsis they give can be misleading or even a bit inaccurate.
  5. As in, licensing anime series and releasing them on DVD/Blu-ray in the US/Europe or forming your own studio and creating original anime series? Both are possible, with a good deal of work, effort and a lot of money.
  6. Welcome aboard. Pull up a cushion, or a chair if sitting on the floor isn't your thing, and make yourself at home.
  7. I prefer the heroic save as many people as you can type. They don't even have to be particularly heroic, they just need to be the sort of character who cares for their friends and looks out for them. As for the villainous type, I've known a few people in my life who would stab me in the back given half a chance, a couple even tried it, and you've only got to read the papers or watch the TV news to find the type who would like to bring the world to its knees so I don't really need them in my anime.
