The fourth option, and I feel the most likely one, is that lady anime fans tend to be very private online for fear of harassment, as is usually the case in every other fandom out there.
That has certainly been my experience playing various mmos with different guilds over the years. You would never guess a lot of players were female, until you heard them on vent, teamspeak, or whatever else com was being used.

I'm not well-versed in obsession with Japanese culture, or Japanese culture itself, really. Frankly, I've never understood that obsession. You never run into people who have crazy infatuations with Russian, or Brazillian culture. At least, not nearly as much. What is it about Japanese culture/media that makes it so alluring to so many westerners?
On that note: Is a western otaku the same thing as a weeaboo?
Weaboo is A derogatory term that has pretty much lost its meaning over the years, and is mostly A flame bait term to try and trigger fans of anime and other Japanese media over the internet.
A weaboo  thinks the Japanese people are the greatest people on earth and can do no wrong. Some of these people will go as far as to try to trash there own race and citizenship with their pro Japanese attitude. These people almost always have no knowledge of actual Japanese culture, and pickup almost everything they know from anime or some other form of Japanese media.

All I can tell you is that I own 4 (FOUR!) Atelier games for the PS3 and have played none of them.


But whenever I get through them, and then Escha & Logy, I'll look into Shallie and see what I think of it. :P

I heartily laugh at how many people I know who this is true for, myself included (I own all six and have played a small amount of Rorona, Totori, and Ayesha)

I personally just get anxiety over the time mechanic and end up moving on to something more relaxing. And it's not the time mechanic itself that intimidates me, but the scale of it. With a game like Persona 3/4, 1 time slot = 1 activity and you can plan accordingly. But in the Atelier games one bad decision can lead to the loss of a week or more and it's REALLY intimidating.
If you  are going for A get all endings playthrough it can become very stressing. Still haven't started Meruru after I finished Totori. Some of the character events have A very small window and if you miss them you better hope you have another save comparably near where you messed up.

I am kinda interested in  Princess Maker. I have been hearing that the translation quality is like really bad.  I know Mesh kinda alluded to it, but is it really machine translated level of bad?

Man... the Fall season is looking really weak. Only new series that I want to see barring surprises  are sequels, Working and Gundam.

I greatly prefer Ys music to The Legend of Zelda series. I am not the biggest Koji Kondo fan. The original Zelda and A Link to the Past do however have some of my all time favorite VGM tracks, the rest not so much.

Kubo and his love for writing himself into A corner with God mode sue villains. Bleach was fine until he went full on ham with Aizen, and then had to resort to asspull after after asspull to finally take him down. Series should have mercifully ended after Aizen's defeat.

I've been in a Berserk mood lately, playing Berserk the Game 3 Dark Souls 3 and just feeling generally pissed off at life (another topic/story entirely), so I checked the new episodes that seem to be getting absolutely horrendous reception.

Now, it is totally worth noting that I AM a huge Berserk fan to begin with. Love the original series, the movies and read the Manga up to volume 50 something years ago. I don't know whether it is simply a matter of my fandom or not, but I think the new eps are fantastic.

Maybe I am bringing my sensibility into question here but I thought it worth posting about anyhow.

NOTE: I have only watched 1 so far.
Large portion of the fandom is crapping on the new anime because of the bad cg and spotty animation that can be jarring in some scenes. The first 2 episodes really pissed off A lot of the fandom.   If you are fine with the 1st episode then you will be golden with the rest. The quality is  steadily getting better as the series go on. I am bummed they skipped an arc, but there is no way  that was getting passed the censor radar

edit: One thing I am really dissapointed in is that they could not get Susumu Hirasawa for the the whole soundtrack. What is in  Berserk (2016)  is mostly recycled from the Golden Age  and what is new is mostly remixed versions of said soundtrack.

I like Re:Zero,  but I am hoping animating WN that have been converted into LN isn't the next big thing for anime.

Next big thing?  Do you mean the last big thing?  They've been doing it for years...
What I mean are the transported into another world, and reincarnation WN stories.

I like Re:Zero,  but I am hoping animating WN that have been converted into LN isn't the next big thing for anime.  In the beginning they start out decent but they just devolve into overpowered main character wankery. The ones that do not go the blatantly op route tend to be Gary Stu author inserts.

1st one that I can actually  remember was Dragon Quest: Legend of the Hero Abel.

Ah, Bot&Soul. Good game ran by a crappy company. The game is overrun by bots. It is like Russian roulette trying to pug blue end game dungeons right now due to getting afk destroyer bots.  Arena has  bots at the moment to such an extent that you can get to plat rating without ever fighting a real player along the way just different variations of destroyer bots. Once you get past the wall of destroyer bots then you have speed/stealth hacking summoner bots to deal with.
