Been a long time reader of Ani-nouto so was a bit surprised to see Author with some strong bias towards loving Amagami, and the consequent strong objection to “the haters” . He makes it sound (a bit on irc too) that it’s common decency to like it… no thanks!
Amagami reminded me a bit of how K-ON played out — cute girls doing cute things, but this time the romance aspect gets thrown in. Add the seiyuu fanboys and I can see why there’s so much love but I’m not surprised people hate it too. It feels like there’s some correlation (re: my small sample set has a near perfect correlation) in fans and detractors between the two, but that’s for the indoor cats to pursue .
Looking at one Zait’s posts itself, I couldn’t say Omo was so fervent, but few can match Kurogane. The subsequent post is a bit more touchy, Chaos Tangent goes a bit too far but it’s fun to see people come out with stronger conviction as a reaction. Anyway, speaking of the ratings improving for the 3rd episode, perhaps fans of the game had an inkling of coming events — a cursory google search tells me the “dog scene” was not an anime original.
Well, I just hope he wasn’t admiring a reflection in a pond.
 He could at least watch it first.
 Of which I am one (the hypocrisy does not burn as much as it should).
