Pic related is kinda trashy because her show is haremshit, but she's the most mainstream example I can think of. Note that I consider autistic girls to be distinct from the silent/emotionless type like Rei or Nagato Yuki.

Haven't played Swan Song so I'm not sure

Nah, I glanced at the first episode, and if anything it would be more like the blue/black haired girl. The one with deadpan replies.

Pic related is another example, or perhaps Bocchi from last season. Basically, characters that don't pick up on social cues and that have a dorky and awkward way of expressing themselves. I think it's a more realistic way of writing shy girls, because most "shy" girls in anime feel forced, like they're just trying to act cute.

A half length show starring Hotaru as a distinctly unmagical girl and ditzy senpai. Seems like it might be based on a 4-koma type comic, first ep was pretty entertaining. Every time she pulls a trick, it gets botched resulting in unintended fanserivce instead of magic

Cromartie High School was one of the first anime I watched and dubbed happened to be the thing most readily available at the time. I enjoyed it a lot. Soon after that I started avoiding dubs altogether for pretty much the same reasons as everybody else, but over the years I always rewatched Cromartie dubbed. I'm not here to debate or anything, and I apologize if this is inappropriate, but is it possible that there's something special about Chromartie's dub?

When it comes to comedy, I'm tempted to say dubs are least bad, but I wouldn't really know for sure and I imagine they have a lot of the same problems as others like added vulgarity to emulate American "adult cartoons". Crayon Shin Chan is another show I watched dubbed and I know they changed cultural references so as to not confuse American audiences, so if I ever rewatch that, i'd like to see it subbed. Then there's the case of Ghost Stories, which was too vulgar for my taste and pretty much the same as "abridged" shit. What do you think about these outliers?

I'm not quite sure what question you are asking. Are you asking about our thoughts on dubs?
Anyways, as far Cromartie High School, I would say give the subs a shot. Since I am not familiar with the series, I'm not sure how much they left out (if anything) but I can say I have seen quite a few anime series that left out certain themes in the dubs (Cardcaptor Sakura comes to mind).
Also, thanks to you I know what series to watch after I finish the one I'm watching now. Many thanks!

Well, i'm asking more about these specific dubs and others which might break from the mold a bit.

>If I were that guy I wouldn't be able to enjoy myself.
The latest episode did in fact touch on this. The way MC just dismisses the issue that Senko is probably projecting her feelings/guilt over his ancestor onto him quite unsatisfying emotionally.

But on the other hand the reason he gave is ultimately practical and I don't fault him for just being content with Senko's company. Even though it may only be a facade, having Senko around is probably more comforting for him than not having anyone at all, much in the same way watching the show provides the viewer with comforting escapism.

I noticed that, and it seems they doubled down on it for ep8. I guess they must have figured many viewers were thinking the same thing. So it's nice to see them address it. Like they say it doesn't really help things to worry about good times coming to an end and you shouldn't let that stop you from enjoying the moment.

Breasts have to act according to gravity, the rear doesn't, for the rear all you would need to do is draw it larger.
>> No. 33073 [Edit]
Well there's bras, and it's not like boob physics are realistic in anime. It's unnecessary work. Plus the walk cycle is probably tricker with a large ass.

Bras still act on gravity, there is the matter of construction of the character as well. Generally to draw a character you will start with a sketch of the framework of it including a circle for the head, a block for the torso and a block for the hips. To make the rear larger all you do is enlarge the block you drew for the hips. To add breasts you then are adding two completely new entities that act in their own way, have there own shadows and effect on the cloths and must be symmetrical to each other. Enlarging the rear is just a matter of scale. Breast are much harder to draw than many people realise and the larger and more detailed they get the harder this becomes.

Well, I suppose you're right that doing large breasts well is more difficult. If we're talking about something mediocre to completely horrible, breasts take less effort, in my opinion. I think large breasts are more common on the completely horrible side of the scale. Pic is my counterpoint.

Very unpopular opinion, but I've wanted to get it off my chest for a while: I don't like Haruhi. At least, I don't anymore. When I first watched it, it was fine. My tastes weren't really developed and I just watched whatever. Looking back on it though, it was a disappointing experience, and I don't just mean season 2. I watched it in chronological order. The first few episodes got me really excited. I loved the premise and thought a lot of crazy, mind fuckey things were going to happen. The possibilities were endless. I was excited to see all sorts of people ask the SOS Brigade for help with supernatural problems. I was excited to see more of the "radical alien faction" or something. I thought Kyon was going to go through a lot of traumatic shit. Haruhi's kind of a cunt, but if she gets better or if there's some repercussions for it, it's fine. Then the baseball episode happened, and most of the show ended up being like that. I get this is a consequence of the source material. I get this is why they aired the episodes out-of-order. I still don't like it.

It's not that I don't like slice of life. I liked Azumanga Daioh. I liked Lucky Star. Konata wasn't a magical girl though, and she wasn't possessed by a demon. If the show is going to be high schoolers doing high school things, why can't they just be normal high schoolers? Why waste an interesting premise? It's not even a comedy. There's jokes and gags and references, but it's not funny funny like Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou. Same thing with Hyouka. After the first arc, I thought he was going to solve a murder case or something. Nope. With his genius level mystery solving powers he just hangs around school. There was a cultural festival, last-minute romance sub-plot, and that's it. I just checked, and other "stuff" did happen, but all of it was wiped from my memory. Both of these were adapted from light novels and I think that's a big part of it.

I don't know for sure, but I would guess the main reason Despera isn't being made is because of difficulties finding staff to work on it. An anime I was looking forward to was even cancelled because of this. There are more anime productions per year resulting in there being less staff available for a project like this.

Most of the time it's more interesting to see characters fail than succeed. This is definitely the case with Haruhi. I think a golden rule of story telling is that whenever characters have a goal, something has to go wrong in a way that has lasting consequences. That takes a hell of a lot more effort to write though. Maybe the premise of Haruhi had too many possibilities, but i'd pay a million dollars to see an Urobuchi version.
The official statment is here.

Sure, but I also don't think most people who like Girls und Panzer build tank models. There's lots of other reasons one might like one of those series.
