Let my try my luck ;)

Eventually she'll fall for the MC like any girl should and show her love by still hitting him a lot? Mild importance for the plot, but nothing that couldn't have been done by a substitute, probably intelligence related because she's part of that organization. I also think some pretty tragic backstory that made her so obsessed is in order at some point. Might just be wrong, but the main point is that those 3 aspects you named will probably define more than 80% of her scenes. What we see in the first 5 minutes of her appearance is what we got, is more or less the 'full extent of her role', I'm afraid, which is why I don't like her. I'm totally up for being proven wrong though, it's just my impression.
But enough predictions :P
Actually I also think she would fall for the MC. I mean, it is the development that would generate the most interesting interactions between the characters. And besides, from the OP etc we can tell she is part of the MC's harem (and I think everyone should know by now it is indeed a harem anime even though the harem part is not stressed so much compared to say Campione, which is an anime that fans often compare StB with).

I am not sure about the backstory. You think she must have lost a sister or something which is why she was so attached to Yukina? Perhaps, but then I think that school from which Yukina and Sayaka came from is something like an orphanage so I guess sad stories abound there.

Actually I was thinking about the technical role she would play in the story and plot as well when I asked about "full extent of role", not just character and personality and not just with the MC (she will interact with other characters, right?). And to be honest, I never expect characters come with too complex characters (or relationship with the hero/heroine) for this kind of anime. In fact it may perhaps be better to keep it simple.

Hmmmm, after reading the posts about this "lesbian char", I cant seem the remember the last time I've seen an anime with a lesbian char that doesnt abuse the MC and sexually abuse/tease the girl she likes who actually likes the MC, which in turn gives the lesbian a reason (no matter how stupid it is) to abuse the MC.

Characters like this tend to either harbor crushes on the male MC in the end or end up being "just friends" with the main girl, and are not treated seriously as romantic options by the story.

I'd say they're outnumbered by characters in shows with all or mostly female casts, which skirt around the issue to various degrees (nearly screaming out "Yes I'm gay!!" but stopping ever so short), like Yuyushiki, Kin-iro Mosaic, Non Non Biyori, Yuru Yuri, etc. Very different sorts of characters.

If we're talking straight up canon lesbian characters who are openly treated as such in the show, then honestly the list is very small (Sasameki Koto and Aoi Hana of course, plus side characters in Horizon, Mouretsu, Kanamemo, and Yozakura making up some of the commonly cited examples of the past few years). Hopefully Sakura Trick can turn that around and increase the numbers but... we'll see. Anyway the archetype you mention is definitely not the entirety of lesbian or lesbian-leaning characters in anime.

Yah, I know that they usually go down that route but I was more curious about their tendancy to over-abuse the MC majority of the time.

And I was referring to animes with male MCs. I dont often watch all female cast or only female main chars, so I'm not sure whether or not such lesbian chars physically abuse the other main female char at the same level of the ones who physically abuse male MCs. Hell, I cant even imagine it lol.

My bad, I should have been more clear. I know that lesbian chars in romance or comedy animes with male MCs tend to be rare compared to lesbian chars as a whole, but its like everytime there is a lesbian char in such animes, they always tend to physically abuse the MC and sexually abuse the female MC/more important female char. Basically, the type of lesbian char that Higashi and symbv were talking about above.

So yah, its the lesbian (either main or side) to male ( usually main) interactions that I was talking about. The sexual teasing/fanservice with other female chars (whether with consent or not of the other parties involved) I'm guessing is there in most shows that can show such scenes.

O and Horizon I guess is a rare case? The lesbians are already a couple rather than 1 lesbian being in love with a straight female, and they didnt get/need to abuse the MC for w.e reason, even though they were side chars who barely had much interaction with the MC.

Ofc, I'm talking about comedy animes because non-comedy animes dont usually have MCs who tend to get abused for the tiniest or absolutely no reasons at all.

Is there a reason for most lesbian chars to be portrayed as such a type of char?

Okay, I'll give you that so far we've only seen the side of her that gets crazy and in the face of the male MC. So maybe the being-treated-like-shit thing is more attractive than the groping (see: the appeal of tsunderes). Even without any interest in the MC or any kind of a dere side (towards him) it still seems to work. It wouldn't surprise me at all if some more fanservice scenes with the two girls follow though, so until that hasn't happened for a couple of more episodes I won't call it an anti-trope. Even now it's more like a half-trope than really 'anti'.
I might've been a bit quick to judge, but she's the kind of character where I can already picture the full extent of her role and most of her scenes for the whole show after her first appearance. Maybe I'm wrong, but usually I don't judge quickly and when I do I'm correct more often than I'm not.
So what is the "full extent of her role" you could tell? Some of the parts we already know: MC being treated like shit, yuri obsession with the heroine, fanservice of course. These could be told by everyone paying attention. So what is your additional insight about her "full extent of her role" on top of this?

By the way, thanks your kind words too Higashi_no_Kaze. ;-)

Not talking about lesbian-focused anime, but the kind of fanservice only lesbian, who probably isn't lesbian, but behaves like it as to allow for some groping action that supposedly shouldn't feel forced as well as as to have a 'good' reason to be another (hot) character that has reasons for treating male MCs like shit. .
But the odd thing is this new psycho-lesbian character (in 2ch parlance) is not even doing any groping or close body contact at all (except a big hug which you would expect for friends not seen each other for a long time). So if there is any trope, it is more like the character is doing some anti-trope of what your generic "fanservice only lesbian" (in your words) is doing. And if such anti-trope indeed is ALL the reason for the big boost it got, I would be very interested to find out why because it is precisely the opposite of what you were saying here: that some generic groping lesbian tropes are doing wonders.

Anyway, I'll just hang on and hope Kaoishin is right and it's mostly some kind of book 2 slump.

people have voted KnB as the best Shounen Jump adaptation of all time for good reasons.
When did the vote take place? I am interested in checking the source. There are a lot of strong claimants, both present and past, for such title, and I would like to see how other titles fared compared to KnB.


http://ani.me/zine/anime/article/3616/


For some reason I can't really take this serious. Seems more like a popularity contest among the western fanbase. Otherwise I'm fairly sure Bleach would NOT be above One Piece, definitely not in the top 5 and a lot of other stuff would be different too. I guess most people just voted for their favorite anime no matter if they even know the manga or not.



e: Also sadface because of symbv leaving the News Team. You'll be missed. I hope you still lurk around the news forums sometimes :).

^ True, it's more of time constraints and resources management. However, it's also the fact that producers did not predict the show would have received so much negativity. This was supposed to be the successor of Code Geass in term of style and story telling, and Sunrise's next franchise judging by how much material released accompanying the anime. My guess is that they were thinking it would be the same as the first season of Geass episode 24, 25.


If there's one thing that I've always found is a safe bet it's Sunrise shows receiving tons of negativity from the internet. At least where the West is concerned, but seemingly now Japan too. Holy shit does the West just have absolutely no love for this studio, especially on blogs where their shows are regularly among the most frequent trashed and ranted about. I remember particularly when I blogged for a few years it almost seemed like a hobby for some of my peers to take the utmost glee in proclaiming the awfulness of Sunrise anime and how they and the staff involved could do absolutely no right, particularly Gundam 00 and Code Geass which were the two big ones at the time. In general though I find when you hear their name or a shows name dropped it's almost always as a negative example or with a "trainwreck" suffix attached on the end.

As for Valvrave yeah I'm watching it but still consider it a continuation of a Spring season so I didn't mention it.


By now most people are bloody sick and tired of badly written, over the top Mecha series and will bash them without fail. Suisei no Gargantia didn't receive anywhere near as much hate as Valvrave because it at least has some proper writing in it, although the overly slow paced until the last few episodes brought its share of hate.

Nov 12, 2013 3:23 AM by scytheavatar

Glad to see Non Non Biyori getting some love. That episode 4 is just classic. Classic I tell you.

Too bad NouCome and Outbreak Company aren't getting enough attention. Those two shows are hilarious.

Other than Love Live symbv said just now, Aikatsu! gets positive feedback as well, if Japanese blogs that I read is an indication. It is "the biggest threat to the PreCure franchise" for a reason.

But the crucial difference is that I seldom hear feedback from Japan booing Sunrise just because it is a Sunrise show. Those who dislike Valvrave dislike it only because of what they see in it, not because of any negative impression about Sunrise. If anything Sunrise still commands quite much respect in Japan and since it is so big with so many studios inside, fans do not really set a particular expectation (except that the budget should be good) when they hear it is from Sunrise. Besides, I surely heard way more positive than negative feedback on Love Live! (yes, even taking the Kotori's arc before the ending into account).


Well hear it's just par for the course really. Even if it didn't have those things Japan doesn't like it'd probably still get that kind of a reception hear because they have a rather poor reputation for being the "trainwreck" studio, which I happen to not think is true at all and at best an ill-defined description but I guess through repetition and enough band-wagoners has become the status quo. These days I get the sense that their name is often looked at as a thing to be wary of rather than to expect anything good though perhaps it's not as much of a given lately, though this might just be that I no longer follow the blog scene and possibly just don't see the pretty much universal negativity I saw for the likes of Gundam 00 for example.

They also rarely enter the conversation when it comes to shows with large budgets and top quality animation in spite of the results IMO kind of speaking for themselves a lot of the time like with this weeks Gundam Build Fighter episode. Also I don't think Love Live was anywhere near as popular or talked about here as it was in Japan where it was apparently one of the biggest hits of the year.

Kind of silly that you get bashed by people for abuse of mod position which I somehow find highly unlikely. Your kind of like the Ned Flanders of forum moderators from where I'm sitting.

Thanks for this week's numbers and all your work here, symbv. Hope the next person in the relay is as quick to post results!

Symphogear v1 had a big event ticket boost, too bad. Was hoping it was smaller.

Had hoped for better sales on WA2 OP/ED.

People do that? Sheesh maybe some people should get over it and not be so quick to feel victimized. Anyways, I hope whoever is taking over has a similar "finger on the pulse" of the Japanese viewer. I appreciated that kind of "insider" perspective you seemed to have.
You will be surprised at how many people (and the length they went to) do that kind of thing. Anyway, it is not as if I am leaving MAL. I will still provide insights and information on Japanese viewer, market and industry by making the standard posts. And I will keep fighting prejudice and correcting misunderstanding in this forum, which is one big reason why I came here in the first place - in fact, not being a news mods makes this endeavor much easier to proceed.

And thanks for your kind words, Hahalollawl and VioLink. I appreciate it. :-)

Well, my schedule may get more eccentric in future, and may not be able provide the right timing and needed effort to write up an informative news post. Now that there are new news mods, it is a good timing to hand baton to the new generation. And one very good benefit of stepping down from the News Mods position is that those who are immature and overly sensitive enough to bash me and accuse me of abusive of my position just because I am a news mods with no special power (except starting a news thread) now lose their excuse to hide behind the veil of mods abuse victimhood.

Ah, I see. That's a shame the news team is losing the most knowledgable person on the anime industry on this site. But at least you'll still be here. Thanks for your hard work!

People do that? Sheesh maybe some people should get over it and not be so quick to feel victimized. Anyways, I hope whoever is taking over has a similar "finger on the pulse" of the Japanese viewer. I appreciated that kind of "insider" perspective you seemed to have.
