Fun but not the greatest no. That probably goes to natsuyuki rendezvous, angel beats or kokoro connect in my view. Im just hopping through little busters which seems really nice so far too

Souta needs to shut up sometimes, or calm down. Well, both. Put a muzzle on him so he doesn't just to conclusions and burst out whatever on his mind without thinking about it first. Also, if Shiina can't even do the basic things in life needed to you know, live, how does she know all these things like operating a computer, drawing, etc.?

It became a favorite of mine but a few complaints hold it from being the best.

I liked it. A bit heavy on the fan-service (Emphasis on "A bit"), but the characters were well done and the story, while boring at times, kept me interested enough to watch it all the way through, which is more than I can say for most of last season's shows.

However,


is pet girl of sakuraso the best slice of life, romance, drama anime series made thus far?


Hell Freaking No!

I'm sorry but you have a major no-no in that question.



To be honest, I didn't think it was the best slice of life, romance or drama. Maybe the best romance of the season, but not of all time. (I am still trying to decide if Toradora, White Album or Clannad/Clannad: After Story is the best, and Pet Girl isn't anywhere close to any of those)

Honey and Clover
Ouran High
Kimi ni Todoke
School Rumble
All of the above mentioned anime fall under the same genre and are way better than Sakurasou..

Supremely well written fairly mature anime that doesnt rely on stupid gimmicks like fanservice to tell a really interesting and original story. Rather than hurr 'high school kids got it tough you know, girls and tiny skirts and shit'. Natsuyuki is one of the few anime thats ever managed to tug at my heartstrings

It was already stated in the show that Rita showed her how to draw on the computer.

Drawing is a natural ability for Shiina. She actually shows some symptoms that are similar to Autism, which also explains why she has a hard time doing anything for herself, and also her innate artistic ability.

Have you ever been stressed out like crazy over something? You tend to snap very easily when your stressed out over everything. That's my explanation for Sorata's outbursts. It happens to me too. I think everybody at one point has had an outburst like Sorata where they just go off on someone even when it wasn't really anything they did that caused the outburst.


The only character that ever got on my nerves a bit was Aoyama. I'm not really sure why, I think it was her nervousness or whatever...but by the end of the series I got over that and liked her a bit more.

In the future, Aoyama Nanami will succeed in capturing the heart of Kanda Sorata. She is pretty close already even though Shiina Mashiro appears to have a lock on Kanda-kun's heart instead.

The relationship between Mashiro & Sorata appears to be one of blooming love between the two. However, it will not become that type of relationship. Sad to say, but Mashiro & Sorata truly have a relationship very similar to cat & cat-owned person. Sorata has to tend to Mashiro as though she were his pet - seeing that she is fed, clothed (with panties), taken to appointments, and tucked into bed. He cares deeply for Mashiro but he also cares deeply for his cats.

Mashiro is attached to Sorata because he cares enough about her to tend to her needs to the extent of neglecting his own often times. She feels a growing affection for him but I don't see how it could actually be romantic love. It is more akin to the love of a beloved pet for its master. As Mashiro learns to accept responsibility for her own "care & feeding" which she has demonstrated somewhat in the closing episodes, she will begin to understand the nature of her feelings for Sorata.

In like manner, Sorata will see Mashiro maturing as a full, independent person. As she grows to depend upon him less and less, there will be a growing conflict between them as she seeks her own path away from Sorata's care.

Meanwhile, Nanami will be there as she always has been, supporting Sorata as he moves through his senior year, develops his games, and struggles with his changing relationship with Mashiro. He will go through a lot of heartbreak until he realizes he never did truly “love” Mashiro and, shortly thereafter, it will sink into his very thick skull that Nanami has always been there for him not just because she is a good friend but because of her love for him.

Sorata will then understand what his real feelings for Nanami represent – his deepening love for her.

Another person commented, "so you just going to ignore that every time Mashiro was in trouble he would ignore Nanami and go after her......and the healthy thing would be for Nanami to move on and be friends"

No, I don't ignore that. I just think Kanda is not yet mature enough to realize what he is doing. Of course, it hurts Aoyama when he ignores her but she is further along on the maturity road so she does "strike back" when hurt. She could move on without Kanda but then the author would have lost the tension of the triangular struggle of titanic proportions resulting from her doing so.

Shiina is almost a case study of the idiot savant -- a magnificent artist who can not dress herself. However, she has shown the ability to accept more responsibility for herself and, on that basis, I think she will continue advancing and will achieve more independence.
