About Cratex
I'm not lost...I'm just not where I think I am.

Anzu: You've got to tell him how you feel. I tell Tsuchi how I feel about him every single day.
Hiiragi: There goes Anzu-chan, straightforward as always. But Anzu-chan may be right.
Koume: Why?
Hiiragi: Well, Yu-kun may move tomorrow...or aliens may come to abduct him...or the Second Impact may happen tomorrow...or the Ishbal War.
Koume: Oooooh.....

I must find the Ethereal Horizon. No matter what.
-- Rikka Takanashi

I refuse to believe this reality.
-- Shinka Nibutani

Mysterious things, when you were a child you used to think "They exist for sure!", but all of a sudden it changes to, "It would be nice if they existed." I wonder when and why you stop believing.
-- Akari Mizunashi

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.
-- Elwood P. Dowd

What the vast majority of people call reality is really just a point of view they choose.

About Rokka no Yuusha,

> where many of the characters have mechanical gadgets and weapons completely out of place in the story's setting, or an odd and disjointed collection of superpowers.

I have not watched those titles which you mentioned. And, I have not felt that something is wrong about it in Rokka no Yuusha. But it is maybe because I don't mind about them.

> and the vaguely "central American" background is cool,

Yeah, my first impression to the show was, "Oh, pyramids are really Teotihuacan-ish!". I guess that it is really rare that design of things in anime is based on Mesoamerican design.

Non Non Biyori Repeat ep. 9 - I think it was a really funny episode. Especially, I really laughed that Natsumi and Hikage led the situation in worse direction even though they struggled with retorting each other.

(FYI:) This conversation was a thing for viewers' laughing.

Hikage: What's this? You wanna hear about Tokyo?
Natsumi: No, not really.
Hikage: So anyway, I went to Yokohama a while ago.
Natsumi: Yeah? What's Yokohama like?
HIkage: It's got the ocean, and buildings, and lots of people. Tokyo really is amazing.

Well I think she is one tool shy of a full tool belt! Although, it would be cool if she was a "slider."

> Hey! That's cheating :D (just teasing)

Haha. I will be glad if two or three lines among my prediction come true.

By the way, only Sella has not worn swimsuits in Fate/KLPI. The following is the reason why she doesn't want to show her appearance in swimsuits.

If you want to know the reason why Hortensia's behavior is so sadistic, click the spoiler button of this page. That is explanation from Type-Moon .
(It is not related to the story of Fate/hollow ataraxia. Also, I am certain that it will not be related to the story of Fate/KLPI).

(FYI) I forgot to mention about Type-Moon visual novels. Probably you have heard that many people say the Fate VN is interesting (or boring). But I think that they really forget to say about the most distinctive part of Type-Moon works. It is the length. All visual novels of Type-Moon are extremely long.

If counting amount of texts by Japanese "bunko" book size,
Tsukihime: 15 volumes
Fate/stay night: 20 volumes
Fate/hollow ataraxia: 10 volumes
An ordinary visual novel: 5 volumes
The Lord of the Rings (J. R. R. Tolkien): 10 volumes

Furthermore, the shared texts of the three routes of Fate/stay night are only the prologue. And after the prologue, the three routes have different story development. (About an ordinary visual novel, the first half has shared texts, and the story is separated into some routes in the second half). So, if you read the Fate/stay night VN, you will have to spend 70 hours or more for reading the texts.

Rokka no Yuusha (I know you has put it to "on-hold") - I thought that it was a simple "Heroes gather and beat a dark lord" type story. But the story development has turned into a kind of detective fiction. And, to me, it is interesting at present.
The synopsis says "However, as the heroes gather, they soon begin to suspect that someone amongst them is an imposter". Yes, seven persons gathered as "The Six Heroes". After the introduction, the main story is about who an imposter is.

Charlotte ep 9 - I just figured out what to think of it...
I'm kind of disappointed, actually.

Cratex | Aug 29, 1:53 PM
Charlotte ep 9 - that was a wild, rough ride. I'm not sure how I'm going to rate this show - it's so uneven.

Cinderella Girls ep. 20 -

> I've noticed for a while now that in each episode opener that, to me, it looks like all the others are fighting Illya, except Miyu. And you can see Miyu, un-transformed, in Illya's eyes at one brief point.

To me, it simply looks that the OP hides who the Eighth Card is. The aura of the enemy whom everyone is fighting against is dark red. On the other hand, the aura of Illya's wings is darkened pink. The following is my personal prediction.

> "started"? You're already on ep 8 ! LOL

haha. Yeah, I have taken holidays this week. And I followed some titles.

Joukamachi no Dandelion ep. 9 - It was the first time that I felt Akane was cute.

Fate/KLPI ep. 6 -

I started to watch Akagami no Shirayuki-hime.

This is not a complaint, but I really wonder why the author of Akagami no Shirayuki-hime gave a name "Mitsuhide" to a trustworthy character. "Mitsuhide" is a common given name but that has almost become a proper noun which means "traitor" (*). haha.

(*) As you know probably, Akechi Mitsuhide betrayed his master, Oda Nobunaga and killed Nobunaga at Honnou-ji in 1582. It is known as the most famous and the most inscrutable incident in all Japanese history. Therefore, Japanese parents tend to avoid giving the name "Mitsuhide" to their children.

On MAL list about the anime industry, there is no actual person who has the name "Mitsuhide".

Almost all of "Mitsuhide" characters in anime are Akechi Mitsuhide himself.

I also enjoyed the story about Komari and her stuff animal. I can relate to the importance of a soothing toy. I had a blanket that I had as a baby that I loved! It's funny but when I look back to my childhood my blanket meant more to me than anyone else.
