This was the first Summer series I decided to catch up on and it was primarily due to the community heat surrounding the first three episodes. Oddly enough, I find said heat had more to do with personae within the anisphere rather than the subject material.w Anyhow, here’s some little excerpts from a subset of read items:
God, listening to Itou Shizuka doing that is pure aural sex in many ways.
Cut back on the sugar if you have diabetes, iykwim.
Omo’s food imagery:
…why doesn’t anyone talk about the roleplay segment? That is by far way more hardcore. In fact the whole hostage thing is simply bizarre, and really eyebrow raising if you view it in the “right” context. Then you got that soup dripping out of Haruka’s mouth like some kind of proverbial icing on some kind of foreplay cake, if you can compare that to baked goods.
lolikit (bolding is mine):
And here I am now, certain that Amagami SS will be my favorite this season if not this year. And why? Because I am projecting humanity upon the characters.
XD I loved that.
it fearlessly panders to the more sensual side of a relationship, and the more sensual side of viewers.
And so it cannot be helped, but simultaneously it is somewhat reserved and moderated. Just think: “You escaped alone and unseen, off-campus, to an abandoned shed with the most idolized girl in the school, and she’s also an older woman.” … that could have played out so nasty, but it didn’t.
Disliking the show does not make one a hater. However, mindless bashing and bashing of people who like the show is hating.
Mentar, get a blog already.
ask yourself if you haven’t done or witnessed comparable stuff in high school – I have
Yes, this is what high school was about. Doing maximally stupid-silly stuff with girls to win their attention, and sometimes vice-versa. Hopefully the trend is noticeable; somewhere in the midst of Amagami we stopped talking about the series, and started talking around the series incorporating various sides of the viewer equation.
Is Amagami SS a good series? Who cares. Should everyone in the anisphere follow this series? Consider it more-so than any other Summer series including Highschool of the Dead. IMO, this is just the topic to offer enough diverse reactions, flames, and passionate comment-battles to put cohesive energy back into the community. Even if we assume we’re above Amagami SS, I feel we’re never above the community.
