Another thought about Marina Inoue: from what’s posted here, I think she might be a better artist than Coharu Sakuraba, MINAMI-KE’s mangaka, though I admit that may not necessarily be fair, since all I’m seeing from her is single pages of manga at most. I dunno if she can churn out so many pages of art a month like a professional mangaka like Coharu Sakuraba can. It’s one thing to make one nice drawing of a girl, it’s another thing entirely to make 50 different drawings of the same girl in different poses and with different expressions for a single manga chapter.

- “Why Are Seiyuu Such Great Artists As Well?”:
So, basically, Marina Inoue, the voice of Kana Minami, should also have done key animation for seasons 2 and 3 of MINAMI-KE. It’d have easily looked better than what Studio Asread’s B team could draw.

- Yuki-chan no Shoshitsu Takes it Easy:
So, I take it, they won’t actually get to the major “Disappearance” arc from volumes 4 and 5 of the manga until the final few episodes? That’s more or less what I expected going in, but, if it ends with the arc, that means we will continue to be deprived of Sasaki ever being animated in any Haruhi-related continuity unless Satelight does a season 2.
- Phantasy Star Online 2 x Fate/Stay Night:
Will this upgrade work on my Dreamcast? Because I still have the Dreamcast version. :lol:
- Spirited Away Recreated in 8-Bit:
Just to be a party pooper, don’t these “8-bit” recreations tend to have a few too many colours on the screen for them to truly pass for 8-bit? It comes across as a hybrid of 8-bit (Chihiro sprite) and 16-bit (a lot of the larger creatures).
- Yuki-chan no Shoshitsu = “100% Haruhi!”:
For people who haven’t read the manga, don’t worry, Yuki x Kyon still remains the main focus even with Haruhi as a strong supporting character.
- Yuki-chan no Shoshitsu Unseasonably Festive:
Oh, I adore Haruhi in the YUKI-CHAN manga (still waiting to watch the anime) even if the excuses for her working with the literature club at another high school are flimsy at best. Haruhi is pretty much the same character in the Yuki-chan universe, just without her reality-altering subconscious. But, even without the powers, her enthusiasm is unabated.
