    I quite like it. I think they have a couple different "flavors" at this point, but I just use the original peppermint.

    Yes. I need to catch up though, I have a couple episodes sitting in my Hulu queue.

Still, probably 95% of what I'm hating about it stems from Nagisa. They did the impossible and made her worse, changing her personality from awful to non-existent (unless Mary-Sue-following-the-main-character-around-everywhere is a personality, but I don't think so). And they gutted the characters of Tomoya and Kyou, cut Tomoyo's story and development in half, did God-knows-what with Kotomi's personality, and gave Ryou a smaller dose of the Nagisa treatment. It's really annoying just because it would probably be a really great show (and better game) if Nagisa wasn't in it at all. And also I don't understand all the reviews I read saying that it's a great romance story, but I guess that's exactly why Twilight is a bestseller. That's probably why they had to deliberately make all the characters worse, too: it wouldn't even be conceivable that Nagisa could be anybody's choice if all the other options weren't reduced to shells of what they should be (or just removed from the picture entirely, as they were in the game).

    I should really find a better place to ***** about being angry at animes, but eh, effort. And I don't want to risk getting involved with real weeaboos.
    Gutting the characters is given for adaptations. To costly to replicate the VN completely most of the time. Most people find Nagisa to be the blandest character overall because she's just not as interesting as the other characters. Kyou or Tomoyo would have been a better choice tbh. Also don't forget to watch the Tomoyo and Kyou OVA's. They're not the greatest but if you hate Nagisa they are more than a satisfiable ending replacement.

    That's not a great parody.

    Yes. Yes it is.

    A parody in current use, is an imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialise an original work.

    Mocking the superbowl

    therefore parody.

    A parody is more than just a picture. A parody makes fun of a plot/thing by twisting around it's elements to add humor.
    The picture you posted was not funny in any way. All it was, was an allusion to Raven from Teen Titans.

    Different people have different taste in humor.

    Parody can be as small as a picture or as big as a movie. Demotivational posters are parodies, yet they are pictures.

    Yeah. And those things are parodying certain things. De-motivational posters are parodies of motivational posters. It's a parody because it's mocking/sattirizing motivational posters.


    An image of a cartoon character saying "Guys, guess who won the superbowl lol" isn't parodying the superbowl or the team that won the superbowl.

    Yeah the words in conjunction with the photo show no satirical effect at all.
    Why must people diss Spaceballs. It is amazing.
