Some of you knew this was coming, and to those who didn't, it should be no big surprise.
No, I'm not a fan of that moe-moe bullcrap, to which the term "Slice of Life" is usually applied. Having a bunch of underaged girls (half of them with breast sizes that should not correspond to their age) doing random things with no rhyme or reason isn't my idea of a well-done anime... or story, anime or not.
But to be honest, this kind of "stories" doesn't bother me THAT much. I wouldn't mind that crap like K-ON and Lucky Star exist... the problem is, as always, the fanbase. People who find the moe style to be the pinacle of storytelling and animation...
... FUCK OFF!!!
Cute characters are a dime a dozen, and they can be found in animes with better plots and character concepts. For example, Yoko from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Not only she's a babe from head to toe, she's a nicely developped and pretty badass character! And she's a part of an anime that, while it's not THAT original, it's still pretty kickass!
... Nia's an empty plank, though. Would it be so hard to put some personality on that Aeris clone?! Anyway, I digress...
Bottomline: moe crap like Lucky Star and K-On (among others) are plain trash, and bad for your brain. Go watch something with an actual substance.
And don't get me started on the Black Rock Shooter OVA!
Also... who else thinks that K-On has the most retarded-looking smiles EVER?! Seriously! Everytime I look at characters from K-On, I can imagine 'em going "DUUURRRRR!!!"... XD
Anyway, seeya next time!
