Serious Shojou Discussion Thread

It's time again for a monthly shojou anime discussion. Let's try and keep it civil this time. I'll start.

Nanoha: diabetes or AWESOME diabetes?

Go!

Sakuraaaaaaaa~ <3

God, I wish I could post some of my really high-res CLAMP art in here. Unfortunately, they're absurdly highres. Like, I have 550 MB of that stuff.

See this? This is classic. Sailor Moon was a trailblazer, CCS can't even compare.

Oh please. What Sailor Moon pioneered, Cardcaptor Sakura perfected, and nothing since CCS is even able to come close in comparison.

Oh, please. CCS' only triumphs over Sailor Moon came because they had better technology available at the time. Sailor Moon is definitely old-school-- and yet they don't rely on newfangled technology the way CCS did.



'sides, there's some things you just can't improve on. Sailor Moon was groundbreaking with one of the first popular lesbian couples, Haruka and Michiru. Sakura and Tomoyo's relationship, in comparison, doesn't even come close to being as warm and loving as theirs.

And the amount of care Takeuchi put into her cast of characters is nothing short of fantastic. Great supporting cast, interesting and dynamic characters, and some actual character development. Sakura doesn't even come close.

Here, have one of my reinforced material brooms. They don't break as easily.

Oh please, CCS was full of forbidden love relationships, and SakuraxTomoyo is just one of them, albeit one of the best ones. And there was plenty of character development, too! You clearly never watched past the Clow arc. And don't give me any of this technology bullshit either, it's completely irrelevant.

Matsuri's just jealous because he can't handle a real manly anime

Mecha isn't manly for the record.  It's all an outlet for teenage angst :smug:

I don't care about manly anime.

Go back to Naruto or Bleach or whatever the hell it is you 'manly' folk watch. :smug:

Yeah, for eight-year-olds. Sailor Moon, on the other hand, was for people who wanted characters with depth and character to look up to. If I were to show either CCS or SM in public, which should I pick? The anime where everyone dressed in OHSOKAWAII *_* outfits, or the anime where shit got done and people sacrificed themselves for love and justice?



Yeah, that's right, tsukini kawatte oshiyoki yo and all that. Bitches.

Incidentally, I bet Matsy gropes his Asuka Langley Sohryu figure every night before going to bed. :smug:

Those are for children ::)

Real men are in touch with their feelings and only watch heart-wrenching dramas that ensure tears.  Let's see a transformation sequence do that :smug:

I would talk about the Tsukihime anime being better than CCS, but no. CCS isn't that bad. >_>

Candy Candy trumps all. It is the alpha and the omega. All shojou springs forth from Candy Candy like a beautiful rainbow of love.

I don't have an Asuka figure, unfortunately.

I do have a Matsuri figure though! She keeps a close watch over my desk for me.
