About kanon-chan
Welcome to my page, I welcome friend requests made if you feel we may have anything in common, but if I feel we may not, I won't accept the request.

Below is my top favorites in anime titles and characters. My top favorites in regards to my favorite anime based on enjoyability and for characters and seiyuu are those that I have a fondness for. I enjoy mainly the classic anime of the 80's and 90's because of the variety of anime that came out during that time, accompanied by the talented seiyuu, artists, and writers that brought these titles to life. When it comes to the modern anime shows, there's a handful of them I do like. However, when it comes to some anime series that are highly regarded by others, there will be some where I won't share the same opinion.

When it comes to the anime I watch/would like to watch, the criteria I look for is a good story/plot, likeable characters, and a talented cast of seiyuu. I also look for well-established character development when watching the anime. How I rate anime is by looking at the whole picture and not give something a good score just because it has a handful of good episodes. Enjoyment is key when I rate anime, most of those I rate 8-10 are those I like to re-watch. At times I'll watch a light-hearted/guilty pleasure anime that seems like it will be a fun watch and with those, I rate it differently than I would a serious anime.

I dislike loli/shota anime, shows with "imouto" and "onii-chan" in the title, harem ecchi series with stupid and perverted male leads, and those long running shounen anime that goes on for 200+ episodes, they become a chore to watch and often run into predictable territory.

I feel in today's anime, it is lacking in having certain great female seiyuu that made their mark in the 80's and early 90's (like Megumi Hayashibara) in voicing main characters and are cast aside to supporting roles, which is sad. I'm mainly a fan of the female seiyuu that were active in the 80's and the 90's because I love their voices and those that I favor are excellent in terms of their acting and singing talent. I feel they deserve more respect, love, and fans than the currently popular ones. So I ask and encourage everyone to support veteran female seiyuu for their amazing talent in both voice acting and for some, their singing talent.

As a fan of older anime, I disagree with those who base their superficial arguments on disliking/not watching older anime because of the animation. When it comes to anime; the story-plot, characters, and how both progress is what counts, not what the series looks like or how pretty it is. I encourage everyone to watch older anime from the 80's and the 90's, there's plenty of awesome titles to choose from and you'd be surprised on how entertaining the classic anime titles are.

MY CHARACTER OF THE MONTH-NORIKO TAKAYA




For July’s Character of the Month feature, my page will focus on the series’ reluctant heroine who ascends to the level of a hot-blooded badass, Noriko Takaya. In the second half of the OVA, Noriko takes a complete 180 degree turn on herself to come out of her shell and fight valiantly in humanity’s ultimate weapon; the Gunbuster and she is rewarded greatly in her bond with Kazumi Amano and the positive reception she receives soon after. I always find character development such as Noriko’s is quite an enjoyable experience to see as she rises up to the top through her trials she undergoes in the first half of the OVA and continuing to grow as a character and a heroine in the second half as she inspires those around her, including her own partner Kazumi when she is faced with a conflict of her own. Another thing that I feel makes Noriko a well-rounded heroine is that she has flaws and imperfections in her and that she has to take on her weaknesses head on to grow stronger and when she becomes confident in herself and shines luminously on the battlefield. Noriko Takaya, to me at least, is a fine example of who I see as a role model. She’s not perfect and stumbles into roadblocks along the way, but hey doesn’t everyone at some point in their lives do? When Noriko finds herself in place she has no desire to be in, she motivates herself to never surrender to anything or anyone. From that point forward in Noriko’s development; she becomes someone who never gives in and gives up, fights on with her head held high, becomes an inspiration to others, and takes her destiny into her own hands.

Noriko in the beginning of the OVA was a young schoolgirl in a space training academy in Okinawa whom was looked down upon by her peers because they saw her as someone with no talent and not worthy of praise as she was a below average student in terms of her abilities as a pilot. She is the only daughter of a famous admiral in the space navy whom was killed in battle when she was a little girl. Her only friend is a girl named Kimiko Higuchi, who often looks out for her and gives Noriko support. Noriko has an encounter with the beautiful Kazumi Amano, a girl respected by many in the academy as she was everything Noriko isn’t. Noriko from then on calls Kazumi “Onee-sama” out of respect for her. The academy soon has a new drill instructor in the sole survivor of the Luxion, Kouichiro Ohta who is charged with selecting two candidates from the academy to pilot the titular weapon for humanity’s hard battle, the Gunbuster. Kazumi is ultimately chosen for this mission as she possesses the necessary skills and talents required. However, the second candidate chosen is none other than Noriko, whom the majority of the student body ultimately opposed against. Kazumi’s fellow senior classmate, Reiko Kashiwara is one of those students and is angered by Coach Ohta’s decision; even Kazumi herself feels Kashiwara is a better choice to accompany her. Coach Ohta is insistent on his decision on choosing Noriko and his reasons become apparent in future episodes. Regardless, things for Noriko get worse with the relentless bullying by Kashiwara and other girls who despise her. Through Coach Ohta’s tutelage and training regiment, Noriko is able to best Kashiwara in the older girl’s challenge against her. When she and Kazumi go into space, they meet Soviet pilot Jung Freud; a fiery and voluptuous red-head who shares a rivalry with Kazumi as both are top ace pilots. Also, Noriko breaks down during a mission that she and Kazumi go on out in deep space where the wreckage of the Luxion is and sees for herself the cruel fate of what happened to her father when he stayed behind with his vessel. On the return back to the base, the new interstellar vessel, Excelion has been completed and a launching ceremony is taking place along with the warm reception by everyone. Noriko’s heartbreaking mission leaves her unable to celebrate the occasion. On her time in the Excelion during a warp, she meets a young man named Smith Toren who is shown to be a warm, humorous, and friendly person towards Noriko that she becomes smitten by. It is also during this episode that she finds out about her onee-sama’s doubts and desire to dissolve their partnership, which affects Noriko greatly in her confidence levels. Smith is without a partner of his own and asks Noriko to partner up with him. In an intense battle against their alien foes and Noriko sits in her machine unable to fire a single shot to back Smith up in combat; frozen in anxiety, lack of confidence in her abilities, and fear…and the battle ends with a severe consequence in Noriko’s inaction and it only serves to confirm Kazumi’s doubts.

The 4th episode shows Noriko at her lowest she has ever been in the series so far as she puts herself in a shell and a state of self-pity. Things look grim for Noriko and I’m certain to a viewer, she is beginning to look like a useless character and why did Coach Ohta select this unworthy girl for this crucial mission in the first place who does nothing but feel sorry for herself, qualities that don’t make for a “leading heroine”. Noriko has dug herself into a hole and the only one who can get her out is Noriko herself. She has had enough of herself as she is and essentially renounces that part of her. She casts aside her old self like an exorcism of removing the demons that have been plaguing her for so long. With a look of determined confidence, akin to being re-born anew as a person different than who she was, Noriko makes a shocking entrance on the battlefield on the titular Gunbuster, to everyone’s complete surprise. Noriko gives it her all in this crucial battle and even though it looked like she was over her head in this fierce battle; Noriko defeats the enemy which causes those on board the damaged Excelion to rejoice and Kazumi to feel overwhelming joy, the latter of which gives Noriko great pride. In the return to Earth and due to the time dilation during their duration in space, both Noriko and Kazumi’s classmates like Kimiko and Kashiwara are adults, the former now a married woman with a young daughter named Takami and the latter is an instructor at the academy. Times had changed and the people have changed, namely Noriko’s onee-sama who is in love with Coach Ohta and he himself is dying of space radiation sickness. Kazumi’s anxiety over the situation going on with the man she loved is made worse when both she and Noriko are chosen to for a new mission when news that a new fleet of space monsters are heading towards Earth. It will be the first time that they will fight in Gunbuster together for this mission accompanying the old Excelion as an unmanned black hole bomb. With the mission in space lasting a little more than an hour, six months will pass by on Earth, and Kazumi breaks down in despair of not being by her beloved’s side, and Noriko convinces her to see through this mission to completion. It is a scene that sees the pair’s development as characters from the way they were in the beginning of the OVA.



Final Thoughts on the Ending



Noriko Takaya is voiced by the well-known, versatile, and fairly prolific Noriko Hidaka, whom made her debut in Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross as Musica and made her mark in the 80’s as the leading female roles in the rom-com’s Touch as the girl-next-door, Minami Asakura and the fiery Akane Tendo in Ranma ½. Hidaka also lent her voice to the tragic shrine maiden Kikyo in Inuyasha, a role that showed her range very well, the role was her second Rumiko Takahashi series she worked on after Ranma ½. She also took on the roles of boy characters as well in her career that include Jean Roque Raltique in GAINAX’s first TV anime, Nadia, Soujiro Seta in Rurouni Kenshin, and Near in Death Note. Other prominent roles include; Kotori Minami’s mother in Love Live! School Idol Project, Erica Fontaine of the Sakura Wars OVA’s/game series, and Junko Tange of this year’s Wake Up, Girls! TV anime and prequel movie with plenty more in various other anime. I admire Noriko Hidaka for her tremendous talent she has and how she is able to portray any kind of role. She’s been in quite a few projects alongside her fellow Ranma ½ alumni, before and afterwards including Rei Sakuma (Kazumi Amano) who portrayed her romantic rival Shampoo. Noriko Takaya stands among my top favorite roles for Hidaka that also include Akane Tendo, Soujiro Seta, Erica Fontaine, and Kikyo.

Below is the Noriko & Kazumi duet song, “FLY HIGH” sung by their seiyuu, Noriko Hidaka & Rei Sakuma, it shows fine action scenes between the two of them (mostly Noriko though).



Twenty years ago, the emotional finale of the phenomenal Top Wo Nerae! Gunbuster OVA series drew to a close. It was produced by the fledgling company GAINAX whom earlier made their debut with the visual tour de-force film Royal Space Force-The Wings of Honneamise, but came together with their production of the two Daicon shorts made earlier. GAINAX would later produce the critically acclaimed Neon Genesis Evangelion in association with Tatsunoko. To me, Gunbuster is a phenomenal anime for me as I see it as one of the best titles ever made; from the powerful and engaging story it has with fantastically written characters, the performances done by the voice cast who I feel are the finest in the industry as a whole, Kouhei Tanaka’s brilliant music score, the gorgeous design work by the many artists who brought the vivid world of this series to life and by today’s standards, I feel Gunbuster has aged well, and the powerful and positive message it brings in believing in yourself, that through will-power and effort, you can accomplish anything if you set your mind and heart to it and that giving up is never an option. The character of Coach Ohta represents those qualities and imparts them to both Noriko and Kazumi in his relationship to them as their mentor, despite his coarse methods. Gunbuster also is the directorial debut of Hideaki Anno and he used certain concepts from Gunbuster would be used in NGE years later. The series also throws in quite a few shout-outs from other anime and movies, such as a poster of Space Battleship Yamato in Noriko’s room for example. As the creative team were otaku themselves and knew the concepts fans loved in the type of series Gunbuster was, it became a fan favorite, especially in the old-school anime otaku community. Gunbuster has shorts in which chibi versions of Noriko, Kazumi, and Coach Ohta explain the science behind the series and other tidbits of information to help the viewer better understand what goes on. The series is also noted for revolutionizing fanservice at the time with incorporating jiggling breasts that would become a staple trait in fanservice-oriented anime shows in the years ahead. The fanservice content is done tastefully in Gunbuster, as it doesn’t detract from the main story and the female characters themselves have proportions that compliment them. At any rate, this is one series I highly recommend to everyone to see, especially when it comes to exploring the vast world of old-school anime titles or as an introductory piece if one is new to the anime world. Gunbuster is one of those series that will be one that I will always remember and be fond of in the years to come as it’s fun, exciting, and enjoyable.

Below is the OP Theme for the Gunbuster OVA, “Active Heart” by Noriko Sakai.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Kamina too. He died far too fast to leave a bigger impact on me. But given that people change their favourite characters every season, I guess Char will have a very hard time catching up, he lacks plot armor at his site, this factor seems to be a guaranteed "character of the year" material.

To be honest, I don't really think about it, I've had enough of Fate milking. It's not like Type-MOON has other novels they could adapt or anything. If they're going for UBW route, good for them, but I'll still look forward to seeing other, original shows. You're right about Heaven's Feel though, it's probably the longest route of F/SN and maybe even the best.

Yeah, I barely type nowadays. The temperature reaches 31 degrees during the daytime and 27 at night, with no cold wind or rain to at least make it easier to breathe. This is the reason why I'm not going to the beaches - I hate hot temperature, it drains all strength out of me. I wish it would get colder soon, this month is unbearable.

InazumaBuster | 07-27-14, 3:05 AM
No problem! Its nice to meet you too! ^_^

VincentArisato | 07-12-14, 1:36 PM
You're welcomed, it's such a shame that Noriko is so underrated, with everyone praising TTGL's Simon left and right. If Domon from G Gundam would be a girl, he'd probably look and act like Noriko. *laughs*

Nah, no need to apologize, I was slow with replying to my friends lately too, I blame the 30 degree heat here, it's impossible to collect your thoughts in such temperature.

You're probably right, I need to get used to these new Mobile Suits, even if Unicorn spoiled me. :D But I'm expecting a good old Gundam to return with this show, free of 00's stupidity like the character who changes his personality depending on which eye he covers with his hair.

It's Princess Devilotte de DeathSatan IX from Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness, a fighting game with giant robots made by Capcom in the '90s. She was basically a humorous villain, a spoiled daughter of a fierce space pirate who travelled the galaxy with her two not too intelligent servants to steal parts of the giant robots. I mostly like her because of the name, it's so cheesy it might as well be something made by Go Nagai, but I still find it cool because of that :D I also find it funny that with her design, she might as well be Dorothy few years before Wing began. *wheezing laughter* It's rare to find enjoyable characters like Devilotte nowadays, most of these "evil lolis" currently are pretty damn bland. Also, she shares the same voice actress with Coquelicot from Sakura Wars :)

VincentArisato | 07-02-14, 4:54 PM
Great choice for a heroine of the month, her development as a character is what really stood up for me the most in her case. It's like a reverse Simon from TTGL, who went from likeable kid to Shinji-esque depressed individual and finally a forced "badass". Then again, given how both of them were Gainax titles, I can see how TTGL could be considered a spiritual successor of Gunbuster, as a Mecha show with huge emphasis on character development.

Also, new Gundam. Looks okay, I'm not a fan of this new Mobile Suit's designs, but at least it doesn't seem to be another kiddy show like AGE and Build Fighters.

VincentArisato | 06-17-14, 6:36 AM
No problem, to be fair, MAL is quite annoying to me right now, with how they blocked special characters just to add the pointless images to the forum posts. Nope, it doesn't cripple anyone who is writing in his own language while chatting with friends at all./sarcasm

Yeah, that was the main reason why I didn't like Riddhe in the first place aside of him annoying me with other things as well. I agree about Jerid, I honestly wasn't expecting him to stay alive for so long. But apparently he does seem to have fangirls himself, that may be a reason. Regarding The Origin, yeah, I'd prefer something longer in length as well, but honestly, I'd rather see an OVA based on Char's Deleted Affair, just because teenage Haman was Quess done right as a character. I do hope that we will get another serious Gundam title, because 00, AGE and Build Fighters are completely in a different league than Turn A. I think they already aired enough Gundam titles for younger audience, so now's the time to return to the real Gundam :D

VincentArisato | 06-06-14, 5:17 PM
Like new flashback scenes showing some incest between her and her brother, back when she wasn't as tough? Yeah, I can see that happening. Also, some tentacle groping here and there and Zeiram remade with shoddy CG. Things like that make me quite optimistic about new Sailor Moon, especially after seeing the trailer.

Pretty amazing, as we could expect :D Marida's death was downright heartbreaking and well adapted (even if I wouldn't mind if they would swap things a little and sacrifice Riddhe instead), Frontal's character received even more depth than in the novel and from what I've seen on forums, Banagher ascending Newtype sparked quite a discussion. I personally got used to the novel explanation, where he basically gets absorbed by Unicorn and departs as a new beast of possibility. They've definitely nailed it on the head with putting in the clips from the older shows. Now I hope that they will move on to Origin movie though.

Oh, they've made Nyaruko-san W OVA? I completely overlooked it. *sees plot synopsis and the picture* I give up. They couldn't possibly ruin Lovecraft's works more than that. And they even had to use the most overused theme of a Special - hot springs. Ecchi sells, I guess. At least Cthuko was still the only bearable character there. *laughs* I'm sorry, I just find it ironic how this whole show is supposed to be a "parody" of Lovecraft's works, yet it consatantly clings to this one gag about Cthuko's lesbian fanatasies, which is a parody of Derleth's works, in fact. I've never thought that the one short story about a group of teenagers summoning Cthugha to chase Nyarlathothep away could leave such a rich legacy. At this point, I'm only baffled that they've even made up Cthuko's older cousin, yet never made an anime girl based on Cthylla, Cthulhu's actual daughter which would actually fit to be portrayed as a young girl. At least a game called Chaos Code did that for them with a pleasant result, so there's that.

Hello!

Yeah, I also have to Iria.

I'm fine, but I feel a little tired. Now I'm rewatching Rose of Versailles.


Greetings.

Zarmyn | 06-05-14, 9:33 AM
So what do you think of Gundam Unicorn's final episode? I really liked it and thought it provided a final satisfying resolution to the Federation/Zeon conflict that Char's Counterattack lacked.

The only problem I had with it was that unlike the AU Gundam series like Wing, X and Turn A where the peace achieved by the characters at the end felt real and lasting, we know that in the long run, that things really won't change for the better in the Universal Century because of the looming specters of the future wars of F91 and Victory.

Kamibakamo | 06-03-14, 5:04 PM
i'm doing rather well thanks:)

VincentArisato | 06-01-14, 9:56 AM
Heh, that's some nostalgia evoking choice for this month. Iria was the very first OVA I've seen in my life, after they aired it here on obscure TV channel focusing on video games as their first anime, back in 1999. I definitely agree with what you wrote about the eyes, nowadays they would've been at least three times bigger, or, as the creators would probably try to tell us, "more expressive to make you want to marry her". *laughs*

SunWukung | 05-31-14, 4:32 PM
Hi there my dear friend.

I always liked reading what you write about your characters Month.
I'm still haven't seen Kanon.

Btw, how are you?

See ya.

Kamibakamo | 05-30-14, 11:02 PM
hello Kanon! just dropping by, like to say I very much enjoyed reading your writing on Akiko Minase, and on Kanon in general. It makes me really want to go re-watch and study every aspect of it. It was and still is honestly definitely among my favorite anime and was the 2nd "real" anime I ever watched(Kanon 2006 version).

I hope you are doing well and have a wonderful day:)

Gonzo-nyan | 05-25-14, 6:21 PM
Hello, I found you in the Tomboy/Feminist club and you seem like a pretty nice person to talk to. How are you?

Himikoi | 05-21-14, 4:37 AM
Oh sorry Kanon, I thought I had already replied to our chat but I had not. This is literally the third time this happens to me ^^" but I always check so make sure I have all the convos properly answered. Good thing I noticed.

Thank you! I will try to pass everything hehe Are you working?

Oh that's nice! Sounds like a good neighbourhood :) My neighbours tend to be less quite than that, they like music a lot so they usually listen to it late at night and put it so loud that everyone can hear it, even when you're trying to sleep. They are good people anyway, we have no major problems with them apart from that tiny thing that they cannot yet control lol

VincentArisato | 05-19-14, 12:32 PM
While I do admit that Rider in Fate/Zero was great, especially given how he was also a mentor to Waver, to some extend, I always found Assassin my favourite. It's this conception of him never getting his own personality back anymore because he was hiding his identity throughout his life that makes him really unique. That and the fact that the actual Hassan was a historical character simply made to be placed in fiction, with his ways of recruiting his followers, for example. You know, when he sent other assassins to forcefully abduct the target, so the attacked person would think they've died, and then Hassan himself showed himself to said person surrounded by women and wealth and made them believe he's a god. That's downright amazing. Aside of Assassin, I always like Lancers, both in F/Z and F/SN, because of this tragic hero portrayal. While it was tiring in terms of F/SN's Lancer, with all of these Specials and jokes in Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, the actual role they've played in the main stories made me feel bad for both of them. I was rather indifferent about Caster in Fate/Zero, but I felt that Lancelot could use more character development, especially given that he was so important to Saber once. I also never was fond of Gilgamesh, he's not a bad character, but I found him unlikeable. But given that he was supposed to be a villain, that's a plus - it makes you root for the heroes to beat him at the end.

As for Luviagelita, I have a soft spot for stereotypical rich girls who aren't delicate damsels in distress. It's hard for me to recall what other anime character Luvia reminds me of, aside of the fact that she's really similar to Karin Kanzuki from Street Fighter and Lili Rochefort from Tekken. Just swap the street fighting style for professional wrestling and there. *laughs* Also, she had this dumb ojou laugh which I both love and hate. You know, it's horribly stereotypical and overused, let alone annoying, but at the same time it's so dumb that it's quite funny. But mostly, I like the mix of elegant design and her knowledge of manly martial arts. Something trully hard to find in anime. And that's why I'd love to see her getting her own show, given that in Prisma Illya, she's mostly there to piss Rin off and that's honestly it. She still would make a nice humorous protagonist though, similar to the titular character of Ghost Sweeper Mikami.

It's not bad, you can give it a go. :) It may be far from perfect, but it does convey the necessary minimum of the story and the romance between Shiki and Arcueid is still there, even if it fails to explain many character backstories and other things from the original work.

I think I'll get to it tomorrow myself, I'll let you know how was it.
