You are the hero that no one knew we needed... you left us too soon, and have left your mark on the world, forever immortalized in the MyAnimeList forums.

I just came across this video and I'm watching it now.
Whenever I come across someone discussing a CGDCT theme I'm reminded of a couple of threads I was active in.
Anyway, I'm not sure where this video will finish with, but the title suggest an explanation to why we can remember
characters from CGDCT shows, while the critics proclaim 'they are all the same anyway in all shows'.

..."RIP"?

I'm unsettled to see you disappear without warning. Let us know you're alive, Okanagan!

No problem, the words are true. A few days ago I referenced that thread twice in one day!

In reading some of your cdgct notes on Classiick's profile, I see that you've used the concepts of continuity and bifurcation; perhaps this implies that the intersection of our interests is nonempty (cgdct aside), in which case you'll understand when I note that a cgdct with n characters has n-choose-2 relationships to explore, giving a larger than linear advantage to shows with fewer characters. (Contrived statement, sorry.) But shows with lots of characters can be nice too. I was pretty shocked with Kari's plethora of characters, and stalled it (not with intent to drop, just because I had other stuff I wanted to watch) after several episodes, but (before reading your posts on it, in fact) realized that it was one of the purest cgdct. Now with you confirming that there remain no main characters, I'm all the more interested to finish it, to see what kind of variety they come up with. (And, of course, to revel in the cuteness.)

On a somewhat related note, the KanColle anime was based on a game with a similar choose-from-the-girls dynamic, and ended up similarly female-screentime-only with a large cast; but they had the audacity to include the player as an (offscreen only (which is pretty interesting, I admit), but somewhat frequently interacted-with) insert-character! ("The Admiral".) I don't want the girls to be talking about a male character so much, nor for the last scene of the anime to be the main character blushing while greeting the admiral in the same special place she met him in the first episode! An interestingly (unforgivably? haha) large difference in "all-female" adaptations.

(Well, I didn't dislike KanColle, and if I were to re-watch it as a not-"all female" anime, I'd probably be fine with it, but what's interesting is that it seemed at first to be heading the way of all-female, but then as it goes on the admiral's existence and the characters' relationships with him become increasingly focal, making it continually shocking. Not that I disagree with Classiick's classification as a three; after all, most people likely wouldn't be as bothered by the Admiral anyhow.)

Whew, sorry for the wandering.

Edit: Line-breaks disappeared? Time to try html...

How did you watch it?

Hi,

Thanks for your messages. It's really great and interesting to receive your view on Yuri Kuma Arashi, and also your other observations, which I will be integrating into my thread soon. I have just finished Yuri Kuma and wanted to share my thoughts with you:

Most of the activities depicted in this show certainly cannot be deemed as cute since killing was one of the predominant themes in this show. Probably the only activities that can be deemed as cute are the loving relationships between the girls and the strong yuri themes.

I personally found the presence of male characters to be rather low although the judges did indeed play a rather important role. The presence of girls was extremely high, which was perhaps due to the setting of an all-girls school. I also found the animation quality and girls' cuteness to be extremely high.

Perhaps something else that is noteworthy is that during episodes 1, 2, 3 and 5, the male judges always appeared at a specific time - near the end of the episode. This reminded me of Lucky Star where there was a male character (Minoru Shiraishi) in the "Lucky Channel" segment at the end of each episode. It thus initially gave me the impression that the show would follow this format, which would make male character presence more predictable and non-random, but this didn't turn out to be the case as the show progressed.

Although I mostly agree with your points, I think that this would actually best fit into the category of being a barely borderline CGDCT - the 5th/blue category - alongside the other dark-themed and relatively uncute shows like Madoka Magica. Perhaps another way to sum up this show is Cute Girls Doing Very Few Cute Things.

It is interesting to see that Teekyuu is getting a 5th season. But this does not seem to be the longest running CGDCT series like you have suggested. The Aria series seems to set this record: season 1 aired in 2005, and there will be another work released later this year (though I don't know if it's a TV series, movie or OVA) in order to celebrate its 10th year anniversary. Note that there is a huge time gap of 7 years between this upcoming work and the last work, which was season 3 that aired in 2008.

However, if you were referring to Teekyuu holding the record for having the highest number of seasons then this seems to be the case. Close runner-ups are Hidamari Sketch and Minami-ke, which both have 4 seasons, although the former also has a lot of OVAs/specials.

I still have not started watching Koufuku Graffiti yet so I still cannot comment on that yet. Nor have I started watching Tesagure (though I might start it soon), but I will quickly mention that I'm really glad to see it being subbed by Crunchyroll, so there is now no need to worry about troll subs or having to wait ages for the next subbed episode. Though I do find it weird how they would sub this series despite not having subbed the original series.

But why not? :D
Yeah, it's indeed a bit different but it seems to be still really good haha
I also looked forward to the 4th teekyuu season :D

Stumbled across you with the 3rd Tesabu installement in the series.

was wondering, why you haven't put up anything on your list.

I'm sorry I couldn't notice your comment.
But if you give me a message with URL or something, I'd go to the page and have a talk.
