I thinks so, yes. That would explain a lot. ^^
You can't say that without watching it.
Have any of you seen these 2 anime?I watched them with a few of my friends and would be curious to know what you though about them.
They even chose them over watching Cowboy Bebop or Paranoia Agent, probably because they were the EXACT target audience of the 2 shows.
You realize that moe isn't about "playing up the hotness" of the characters most of the time, right? For most moe shows, the girls aren't necessarily hot, but instead they are cute. Yes, as in little puppy or kitten cute. That look is supposed to engender a feeling of "ahhhhhh, she's so adorable! I must protect her and cuddle her andtouch her cute, pink pantiestreat her like a little sister!" The word "moe" itself just means "to burn with passion," and that can be entirely devoid of sexual connotations (or so moe fanboys will tell you). I would argue that the less overtly sexualized and more subtly a show objectifies and dumbs down its young female characters, the more a moe show it is. True Tears and Clannad both fit this to a T.
Though I agree with most of you I totally agree with gedavids. It seemed that the shows cater to teenage girls or maybe even boys, meaning that most of you aren't really their target audience.Though these anime are by no means the best or even above average, my non anime watching friends found them really entertaining. They even chose them over watching Cowboy Bebop or Paranoia Agent, probably because they were the EXACT target audience of the 2 shows.
