Since everyone's talking about Amagami in the Seiren threads anyway, why not.
Figured if I was gonna blogpost I would do it in a reply rather than the OP.
This stupid shit right here that I avoided for so long until I was recently talked into watching it, this is the series that's gonna send me over the edge to buy a dakimakura, obsessively seeking out and saving all images and media of my favorite girl, setting my computer and phone backgrounds to a wallpaper of her, putting her theme song on my phone, rewatching scenes of her I liked best to keep her alive in my mind, listening to clips of her voice and looking at pictures of her in bed at night to help me get to sleep, hoping to dream about her, unable to sleep because I can't stop thinking about her.
I shouldn't have ignored this show for so long because I need a support group for this but everyone's gone now. I only witnessed the tail end of the Amagami Challenge threads which were dying out by that point. It seriously took this show to completely set off in my mind just how unhappy I am with my life, and I'm scared it's going to turn me full weeaboo.
Shameless bump before I go sob by myself for a bit.
>read Kimikiss way back when it first got localized

So which is Amagami closer to?
Tsukasa is love.
I appreciated Junichi's cameo in Seiren. (Keanu not included).
How can you slip into full weeaboo for fictional characters? I don't get it I watched this anime and all I felt was frustration on how they do not act like normal people.
>How can the girls look so generic but perfect at the same time?
I think that part of what makes the show so great is that the girls are designed to look as ideal as believable and realistic as possible while still being ideal, e.g. no candy-colored hair or kawaii uguu~ faces. I really like the style of the show for that reason.
Which one(s) did you find yourself falling for in particular?
>How can you slip into full weeaboo for fictional characters?
Where do you think you are?
>I don't get it I watched this anime and all I felt was frustration on how they do not act like normal people.
I mean, this is literally nearly all anime, isn't it? Really, it's just about these honed ideals that can hardly exist in real life. What makes this show different in my opinion is that these ideals are made to be just barely believable enough that you can get immersed in it and imagine the sorts of romances in the show in your own life.
This is why the Amagami Challenge threads started in the first place, it made people feel like they could improve themselves and find these sorts of romances in their own lives. For me and maybe some others however it's just created even greater despair because these romances are tantalizingly close to reality, but I know that something so pure and great could never happen to me. I could never find such a special girl and have such a pure and special relationship and have all those fantastical and emotional things happen along the way. It's all plausible enough to imagine happening but too perfect to be likely to happen at all. So, it's easy to just get hung up on thinking about and obsessing over it.
Why did I write that much, what the fuck.
amagami SS plus is better than amagami SS
