I was always under the impression that Sentimental Journey was a shounen title since it is based on the characters from the game Sentimental Graffiti as seen here.

I could be wrong, but a "girl-get" game strikes me as being aimed towards boys.

Man, I gotta get Neo Tokyo.
But I'm glad that Gravitation has actually gotten some negative press. I hated it when I saw it on fansub, but it semmed to me that everyone loved the series. Then again I hate alot of series that people seem to love.

Sadly there's people that love anything that comes from Gonzo even if it's bad.

I find most of their stuff is really unoriginal and cliche (which is why Im sure many people like them), and I usually don't like their animation (its often choppy and lacks detail, though there are some gems).

It doesn't matter what genre the original game is. Sentimental Journey, as its own separate entity, is shoujo, because it's a story of girls and their love lives, and aimed towards female viewers.

Which is actually kind of odd, since Sentimental Graffiti was immensely popular among boys. Maybe it's because of this reason, the producers decided to make it shoujo, so it would appeal to female viewers.

I always ignored Sentimental Journey in the past because it seemed like the "same old-same old" harem anime type thing. Oh well, I'll check it out sometime.

What I liked about it was that it wasn't harem at all. Just different chicks talking about their love lives. Not much relation to the game, actually.

No, no, no, Sakechan. The line is, "Once is funny, twice is enough, third time's a spanking." At least, I'm pretty sure that's what Beverly Cleary would say. Smile

...explain why rhyming “Easy Breezy” and “Japanesey” in a song is a Hell-worthy trespass, even for Utada Hikaru.


It's gruesome, sure, but hardly original. It's a paraphrase of the expression "easy-peasy japanesy", which is (I believe) originally British, and probably predates WWII. Since it had become somewhat dated and vaudevillian in sound, it had more or less fallen out of use by the 1980s and early 1990s. However, in recent years, it has been made more common by its incidental use in the film The Shawshank Redemption (1994).

This has been a completely gratuitous factual interlude. We now return you to your regular nattering and grommishing.
