Same character designs. No, I meant the same designer. I wonder why I made that mistake, obviously they wouldn't just recycle the same fucking designs for another series... The chick with the hat in the poster probably just stole Kotori's wardrobe and is her twin sister. Yes, that must be it.

In related news, this is from the writer of the literary masterpiece that was Kanon. I'm sure you'd love this one too, sothis. I for one expect great things to come. Maybe a something really original like a love interest who's the main character's little sister (adopted of course, we're not perverted or anything) who's really a ghost of a fox and likes bananas and who magically has the body of a ten-year-old but is actually just over the age of consent and who likes to play around in snow while sakuras bloom (magic again). Oh yeah, and she'll have a sword which she wields like an expert when she's killing invisible monsters, rivals in love, and that weird cat-dude that keeps following everyone. This is all deeply symbolical, of course, and only a complete illiterate brute who has no concept of Art could fail to see through the surface into what the Artists actually meant to say. Yes.

Sola? => Sora == Sky?

I'll pass on this one from the premise.

Well, so far as I can tell this one doesn't have a game that it's based off of, or at least I haven't heard any mention of one. This means that the writers aren't going to be restricted by the events of the game (hi Kanon); I for one am very interested in seeing how that turns out.

Oh, and clearly [sarcasm] once a character designer makes a girl with long hair and a hat they must be banned from ever doing so again. [/sarcasm] Come now, that's a little superficial...

Kanon didn't fail because of platform incompatability; it sucked as a game too. Well, maybe now there won't be a reason to have half a dozen harem characters each more annoying than the previous.

How about this "once a character designer makes a girl with long hair and a hat they really shouldn't do so again in the very next, and currently only other, anime they've ever been involved with." See, my version doesn't even need the sarcasm tags.

Though I must admit I see another side to this argument: there is nothing fundamentally wrong with more animes having a Kotori. In fact it's quite the opposite. I think every anime ever made would benefit from having one.

hmm... only other would make a differnce, wouldn't it... but all the same, it's not too big of a deal. Having Gundam Seed clones didn't make Fafner bad, I guess.

Oh puh-leeea-se.

Spare us the nonsesical fanboy-bashing. As Answerman wrote, "Anime is a hobby, not a religious crusade to take back the holy land." No matter how much you bash an spew your hate, "Kanon staff" or "Kanon-like" are a recommendation for most, and your trolling won't change that.

Just like Kanon, this series is about *MOE*. If you want somewhat more realistic show/characters/designs, go watch Hataraki Man, Yomigaeru Sora, or switch your TV to CNN and indulge in realism.

And if someone is looking for moe, they need to look no further...

Nice strawman there. Where did I say I want realism again? You accuse me of taking anime too seriously, yet in the next sentence I'm suddenly trolling. You don't see this as contradictory in any way?

And wtf, since when does moe even mean that any kind of shit with a couple of lolis thrown in is good? I mean are there no additional requirements for a series, particularly as regards the plot, as long as it's moe? How about *you* go and watch Ayu Ayu twirl around endlessly, then. If I wrote an anime like that, you would undoubtedly go after anyone who dares criticise my skills as a writer, yes?

The only "Kanon staff" I've mentioned is the writer of the game, and him because his writing is nonsensical gibberish. Do you disagree? It doesn't seem that way since your only retort was "but this is moe." I also accused Da Capo's character designer of recycling their work. Is that bashing? Hate? I even admitted that I have absolutely nothing against Kotori's physical appearance.
