I hope that, for the first time in forever, like, ever, we get a good live action adaptation, but can't imagine how. For me, Tanya being the midget she is is one of her major physical characteristics as a loli, which makes it even funnier when we recall that she inside she is a dirty, perverted, selfish 40-year-old bastard, so just casting (as I'm sure they will) a normal Japanese kid with an obviously fake blond wig (sorry, but I've never seen a live action of any anime that rose above these levels) will totally destroy it for me. Not counting that they're all meant to be European, not Japanese.

Care to cite an example of what made you think this? My impression was that he was closer to be asexual.

He definitely comes across that way in the anime. The first novel implies that he had normal sexual urges in his former life, but nothing has yet indicated that he's explored anything like that as Tanya. (Admittedly, though, I'm not quite done with the first novel as I write this.)

Well, he says right before he is thrown in front of the train that he has all possible complexes. I took that to mean things like shiscon, lolicon, etc.

How and Why!? It means he has things like an inferiority complex or superiority complex, egotistical, hypocritical, or maybe he's a liar or arrogant, etc. These are the complexes he was talking about, not his fetishes.

Anime has corrupted his view of the world. Sad

I should really get back to the show. Was rather enjoying it but just kind of fell out of watching it halfway through the season.

According to a report on another reputable site, apparently this is going to be a movie (and apparently one recapping the events of the series).
