tiboreau: Last week We Remember Love aniblogger Ghostlightning challenged his readers with an ultimatum. Don’t like some of the anime that airs each season? Well, what type of anime would you like to see—and be creative! Inspired by both the challenge and Ghostlightning’s own creative anime concoction, a few of Altair & Vega‘s writers were motivated to share their own anime concepts. We hope you enjoy!

“Endymion the shepherd,
as his flock he guarded,
She, the Moon, Selene,

Evermore he slumbers,
tossing not nor turning,
Endymion the shepherd.”

“You would put yourself through more anguish in your quest for answers? Your choice is incomprehensible.”

The sweat, the tears, the possibility of blood and other injury, burgeoning romances between players (okay, so maybe that’s simply wishful thinking on my part); baseball provides an easy setting for drama, especially in Japanese cartoons, comics, live-action television and movies. One of the more interesting baseball concepts in Japan, and one that isn’t applied to baseball in the same way in the United States, is the idea of the battery.

Nine times out of ten, when I discuss Honey and Clover with someone, their response is always something along the lines of, “Ah! That made me so sad! I wanted Shinobu and Hagu to end up together!” When I disagree, their reaction typically trends to one of extreme disgust. In the series’ defense, here’s a bit more insight into why Hagu chooses who she does, and why it’s actually the best, and most realistic, choice.
