Gender doesn’t matter; the burning heart is what really matters. CLANNAD (TV), Episode 4.

Japanese entertainment media, from light novels to manga to anime, has always had a tradition of characters sporting all sorts of hair colours, most of it an impossibility for the real-life Japanese, or even for any race of humankind in particular. However, never before have I seen that particular dichotomy actually pointed out by the characters themselves. I don’t know whether this line of dialogue is a KEY original or a KyoAni addition, but this scene is great for that very reason.

I started learning Japanese when I was 13. I was a mere casual anime fan before that, viewing what was available on TV solely, as dubs, either in English or Mandarin. Technology back then was not capable of providing dual-language options, and there was not much audience demand for Japanese audio either. So it came as a surprise for me when I first saw anime with raw audio and subs, in the form of VCDs of Detective Conan. I heard Haibara Ai beautifully voiced by Hayashibara Megumi, and Conan’s edgy feminine voice provided by Takayama Minami, the TWO MIX singer. Of course I didn’t know these names back then. But Conan used to have all these words I learnt in Japanese class, such as "Naruhodo", "shinjitsu wa itsumo hitotsu" etc so it wasn’t exactly gibberish.
