When will you put Aikatsu in your top 10 on here? This is just MAL anyway, most people here are a PoS. Us included. Show your moe pride, recently converted moefag.

Thank you for the reply!

Heh, I'm pretty tsun towards KyoAni.
Loved them for FMP but then started to lose interest and now Euphonium got me again. I have a soft spot for music-oriented narratives so there's some bias included but it was really a great show. Could live without the yuri crap, though.
But good to know it's not just me over-analyzing P.A.Works stuff!
Who knows, maybe with their anniversary project they make up for it.

Yeah, maybe I'm being too harsh with Shinkai.
I guess the best way to put it is not that the overall "quality" of his work dropped, but instead that he deviated from his original path of bittersweet romance/drama, which was exactly why I loved his work.
Still, I hope he "returns home" with his next narrative. At least seems he's walking that way from Dareka and Cross Road. For family-like movies, as you mentioned, Mamoru is way better than him. I felt he could do more with Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo and that the story wasn't really fully explored but Ookami Kodomo touched my heart and Summer Wars was outstandingly funny.
Didn't know about The Boy and the Beast. Thanks for mentioning it!

Maeda-sensei writes good stuff sometimes! Don't bully him! :P
Turns out much of his talent isn't well-fit for the anime style of storytelling... only with VNs you get to experience his whole glory! lol
Rewrite and Planetarium were gorgeous but are extremely difficult to adapt for TV. Same for Air.
The other stuff are okay. Kanon and Clannad turned out great but that's KyoAni's scriptwriters credit.
[...] Charlotte flopped.

Great taste on animu, mango, characters, seiyuu, studios and directors.
Godly taste on best girls.
I salute you, friend.

Also, kudos for the creation and continued support of a P.A.Works-dedicated thread in Animesuki. I'd PM you through there but it's being a damn while since I last logged in and I'm not even sure if I remember my password correctly. I wonder when/why I stopped lurking that cute place and switched to the toxic sewers known as MAL...
Anyway, the (one of the) reason(s) I'm sending this is because of the bump on that thread regarding the 15th anniversary news.
I'd agree with the neko-mimi user that the "big" anniversary project will probably come out a bit delayed in mid-2016. Haruchika doesn't quite sounds like it as it's a novel adaptation, not quite the big project you'd announce being a studio that focus on original works.
PAX/PARUS indeed looks like just logistic/branding changes. They were already experimenting on CGI with a couple of shows and openings (Tari Tari being a good example) and probably are moving the work to a new name in case something flops REALLY hard so it won't affect directly the image of the main brand.
PARUS also makes sense. They've done a bunch of city/tourism-promoting ads and commercials already, -Koitabi was so short yet so sweet- I'm really looking forward to see if something bigger will come out of it.

Now for the (actual) other reason I'm sending this message, is that I'd like to ask a fellow fan something.
I love this studio and all most of the people who worked/are working on it ever since True Tears aired. Have followed all of their projects and favorite'd a bunch of them. However I feel like they're losing their magic with the most recent releases. Sure there were flops in the past (RDG, Another) but never in a streak. At least for me, Glasslip was a completely uninspired poorly-written catastrophe, Shirobako was kinda interesting but definitely one of their weakest projects and now Charlotte is "meh" at its best. I'm still half-way on it and if we remember it's Maeda who's behind it, it's definitely bellow his average.
This is something that's been bothering me for a while. Maybe it's me? I tried getting some opinions here on MAL but seems the average user can't even tell who Mari Okada is.
Sadly, I'm also feeling the same way when it comes to Shinkai stuff. Hoshi wo ou Kodomo was Miyazaki/Disney family adventure and Kotonoha no Niwa scenery-porn with a poor storyline and cardboard characters. If only Cross Roads and Dareka no Manazashi were theatrical productions...

Anyway², this is just fanboy grumble. You don't need to reply if you feel like what I'm saying is nonsense :P

It's okay. I'm pretty content with my shit taste. I don't think you are accepting of your own shit taste though feg.
