We still cannot quite feel that I could end up being one of those studying the important guidelines found on this blog. My family and I are truly thankful on your generosity and for presenting me the advantage|opportunity|possibility|potentialthe chance to pursue my own chosen profession path. Thanks for the important information I obtained from your web site. male enhancement Wow! This could be one particular of the most useful blogs We've ever arrive across on this subject. Actually Wonderful. I'm also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your hard work.
I have the anime,manga,and light novels which is a pretty good series and can see why it has that much fans,one thing I'll regret is buying season 2.
Actualy, the anime is based on novels. It isn't odd that there were more seasons and a movie that came out. Having said that, I only liked the first season. Being a huge geek for seiyu, the japanese equilavant of voice actors, I feel that Aya Hirano, the voice of Haruhi, has ruined the character and the series for me with her escapades. Her rise to popularity thanks to this series has really given her an ugly personality, which worked against her and she was dropped like a rock by her agent and studio's. The Moe also didn't stop in season 2. It was there, and even to this day is here. Overall a decent analasys, but I do see some room for improvement. Keep going.
"...Wake up call that signaled the end of moe..."
Ha. Ha ha. Yeah, sure.
I wouldn't use the word end. But at least more shows are coming out that seriously aren't moe.
You know, 'moe' isn't a genre. It's a character trait. A show itself can't be 'moe'. It's the characters that express 'moe'.
And to say that there are shows that don't have 'moe'... that's most likely false. I keep seeing people misuse the word or smudge the meaning. It sort of gets on my nerves.
I don't know. Personally, I don't know too many details on what Moe is, but I can say that I am happy that there are more shows coming out where Moe isn't shoved straight into your face ala Lucky Star. I guess if someone wanted to define it as a genre, it would probably consist of shows like that, where moe is heavily expressed and where it can be almost borderline excessive.
To be fair, there actually are shows without moe. Just takes a little searching.
I'm not trying to pick a fight here, but I'll regurgitate.
Moe is not a genre. It's a character trait.
For instance, let's say that there's a show where most of the characters are acting like complete morons. The character trait: idiocy. Because all the characters are idiots, does that make it part of the 'idiot genre'? Not really. A story's genre isn't determined by its characters. A story's genre is determined by the how the storyteller tells a story and uses the said characters. A group of idiots can naturally be used in comedy; But a similar group with the same characteristics can be used in a thriller as well ( think about all those teen horror movies ). That said, characters do contribute to 'how well' a story can be told. You can try to do drama with a cast of idiots, but most likely, it will come off as terrible script-writing. Nonetheless, characters don't and shouldn't impact the genre.
Also, as a side note, I'd like to mention that Lucky Star isn't really that 'moe'. Character designs aside, the show plays out more like Japanese Otaku Seinfeld. And by the way, Seinfeld is very good show.
I see. I was also just speaking from the standpoint of those who may have this view that it is a genre. Sure, a genre is and never was made based on the characters. It's why we have characters who are pretty similar in motivations and personality do different things in stories that are from different genres. Because while two stories may have characters who are, for the most part, identical, these characters are highly likely to make decisions and develop differently if these two stories would be from different genres, which may possibly influence on how the story is going to handle the development of these characters.
I'm just guessing that, based on my experience, a lot of moe characters I've seen tend to behave and develop too similarly, regardless of the genre they're in or the story they're part of.
That aside, I do enjoy Lucky Star. It is a very FUN show. And fun is good. :)
I'm a fan of this show myself, but I can see how it can rub people the wrong way. I see Haruhi as an example of how she wishes to go against the ordinary nature around her, and I can relate to both her and Kyon in so many ways seeing that I live a life of extreme stability. People are simple-minded, they want the same things, they are followers instead of trend setters...to me, everything around me is boring, which is why I try hard to have a different point of view from everyone, every day.
BTW, there's more to this story than meets the eye. We've still got about 6 more light novels that has been BARELY touched on, all of which flesh out the character's relationship to Haruhi and even Kyon's past. Hell, there's a story arc about a counter group for the SOS Brigade! So yeah, I can't see why they didn't make more seasons for Haruhi Suzumiya, but I bet Aya Hirano's kinda-recent scandal (hint: she...doesn't know how to close her legs) may be a possibility of why it's taking so long.
Oh yeah, looking forward to that next episode. Lucky Star, eh? Funny stuff. Heard it started as a 4koma series.
