Give mouth to mouth resuscitations to each other every episode? :V

Yaoi fangirls are gonna love that.

Yaoi fangirls already love the damn show and it hasn't even aired yet.  It doesn't take much...

Tamako Market was....like Kevady said, just kinda lost.  It tries to be cutesy like K-on, but still tried to have some plot, but also wanted family-business rivalries and shenangigans, then a fat bird that played videos for no reason.  The conclusion lacked surprise and the lead was weak.

Hyouka was great; but I really, really wish they went along with the final bit of dialogue between Chitanda and Oreki was real and not "in his head".  It would have been a perfect finale, then KyoAni lost their balls, let them shrivel, and carried on.

And as much as I want Haruhi, is Japan and her talent agency gonna let her play off her sex scandal?

^Sex scandal? You mean the one with Aya Hirano? I remember reading that she left the voice actress role after the anime adaptation of Fairy Tail finished, or something like that.

I've not been following much anime news in the last few years so I might be wrong. *shrug*

Yaoi fangirls already love the damn show and it hasn't even aired yet.  It doesn't take much...

Yeah Yaoi fangirls are easily excitable, though I really doubt that this series ends up being anything special.

Story is (and images back it) was she had sex with 3 of 4 members in her band (lol, poor 1 guy).  She took pictures, they leaked, and she was fired from her music agency.

Japan takes that kind of stuff serious x10 -- so her career has sort of simmered from the super star it was before.

I would've never even known about that if I didn't go out of my way to google it just now. Oh no, a grown woman having sex. Stay classy, Japan.

(Also I think this is kind of a weird juxtaposition when you consider how much attention JAV stars tend to get)

Ironic since Kim Kardashian got famous from a sex tape and Paris Hilton got way more than her "fifteen minutes" of fame for the same reason.  C'est la vie?

...did you mean "stay classy" literally or sarcastically??

I do feel bad one sex scandal can ruin careers (of course, in the American case, I don't think it should make them either).

Sarcastically, but like you, I don't see why it should be treated as anything at all. I just find this stuff really bizarre. It's like when Minami Minegishi shaved her head for daring to have a boyfriend.

Man, I don't follow this crap at all.  I didn't even know about it.  God damn why do people care bout this shit so much...

Japan has this weird fixation that all female pop stars need to be 'pure', and fans get incredibly upset if they're not (or rather if it's found out that they're not, because realistically who is...).  It's this giant mass delusion.  I can't believe that anyone is really dumb enough to believe that all idols are virgins, it's just that they need to keep up the act that they are so there's plausible deniability or something.  It's fucked up.

Now from what I've read technically she was only fired from her music label and can still do voice acting, but then there's such a 'stigma' on her now that it's really up in the air whether anyone will hire her...

Hathan: I know what you mean, but "stay classy" would probably be the wrong choice of words speaking she fucked most of her band and took pictures of the "post-event show" (how those pictures got out is another story I'm sure).  If anything, I'm sure part of why she's being crucified is for her lack of class. x)

Kev/Hath: I agree the bed is private, the media shouldn't be in there, but I do think it's sloppy and just plain gross to take pictures with the person you just slept with (especially when it's multiple people? brrr).  But to chastise it and basically throw her career out based on it, especially when she *is* a great talent to be sure, is definitely making it worse by inviting everyone in to weigh in on it.  Once it got out I'm sure no one felt worse than Aya herself.... the shaming must suck serious butt.

But yeah.  It was only her music label that dropped her, but who knows when/if KyoAni will finish up Haruhi (I think she's with another one now...maybe time will heal things or whatever).  If anything, I hope the person who came up with repeating a single episode 8 times in a row should be fired or shot (made worse since a "series" was composed of only 12 episodes, iirc).  It'd be great to see KyoAni finish what was otherwise a pretty great show.

Ah well, here's a funny picture of her in a shirt.

Not to defend the fan's creepiness, but they do 'market' the girls like that.

On a whim I started Rozen Maiden today...interesting show so far. On season 2 of Chihayafuru and I absolutely love this show! Almost done with Hakaba Kitarou which has to have one of the best visual styles I have ever seen. And Little Lady and I are still watching Hanasaku Iroha as our bedtime show, you're right Dice, nice and fluffy, lol.

Yeah and that's when part of the problem starts.
