Title: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Nyerp on June 09, 2011, 04:37:07 PM
This seems kind of pointless since we can just check each other's MALs, but I figured we should have one of these threads anyway.

Here you can list whatever you're watching/reading or just finished watching/reading, voice your opinion on it, discuss with others, get recommendations, etc.

Watching:

-Darker than Black (seems pretty meh so far honestly)
-Abenobashi (bad animation and not really funny, sadly)
-Baccano (awesome, it's too bad i'm almost done with it)
-Dragon Ball (lol i just picked it back up last night, i just want to finish it now)
-Ghost in the Shell SAC 2nd GIG (p. cool, might be better than the first season)
-Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera (currently airing)(this show pretty much just sucks)
-Nichijou (currently airing)(moe show, randumb humor that isn't funny most of the time)
-Tiger & Bunny (currently airing)(superhero show except japanese, also yaoi bait apparently)

Reading:

-Gyo (jesus christ this isn't even scary it's just stupid @_@)

Post by: Andria on June 09, 2011, 04:45:23 PM
yea gyo was entertaining i'd say but scary, no way in hell.

at least not when people started turning into stuff |:

i'm watching Ao no Exorcist, reading Let Dai, Amatsuki, and Tomie among others that id on't feel like listing

Watching:
Abenobashi (yeah the humor is pretty hit-and-miss, I agree...but I wouldn't call the animation bad at all)
Darker than Black (sometimes, with you guys...when i actually have time, even though i've seen it before)
Lucky Star (i've started and stopped this series several times, gonna try to actually finish it this time)
Last Exile (pretty awesome, a bit slow moving though)
Nadia and the Secret of Blue Water (classic fun, nothing special or surprising, but good entertainment)
Green Green (sucks really bad lol, my friend gave me the set for free)
Shakugan no Shana (decent enough i guess)
Spice and Wolf (haven't seen enough to say anything)
Haruhi 2009 (i don't know why i haven't finished this yet, i finished endless eight already)
Haruhi-chan (dunno why i haven't watched all of these ONA episodes either)

Reading:
Chobits (love it, always have - way better than the anime if you ask me, which is also still really good)
Azumanga Daioh (i prefer these little 4koma strips over the anime a lot. always funny, never dull)

I finished the Baccano! specials. They're pretty much needed to finish the show, and only make the show better. The wrench guy was pretty pointless and annoying, and Eve's storyline wasn't given much closure (yet again), but it was still great. wrench;

Just finished Shakugan no Shana.

I was a bit sad to end up giving this anime a 7/10 on MAL, because I had honestly hoped it would be better than this and it was actually interesting enough to keep me watching. Plot-wise, it's actually pretty cool. But it's got some major, major flaws that just bog it down like crazy. Mostly, it just had a lot of generic-ness to it and it didn't particularly manage to surprise me...ever.

Still good, but nothing special. Not sure if I'll watch the second one ever.

Yeah I watched it all in last week, unless there is more then 24 episodes? I watched the OVA thing too, I don't know what that means, but I watched it. Also I was impatient, couldn't wait for Cowboy Bebop to finish when Lucky Star has been done for days.


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Nyerp on June 26, 2011, 07:48:25 PM
OVA means Original Video Animation.

And, uh, congratulations? I'm glad you liked it even though it referenced a lot of stuff you've never seen. But yeah, you should still watch Cowboy Bebop. Try looking for a download that works?

I just recently watched all of Full Metal Panic (with Fumoffu and Second Raid) and the first season of K-ON. The latter was better than I expected, but I don't really see why it's mentioned so often in many anime-obsessed parts of the internet.

Looking at MALs, I notice Dragon Ball and Z is listed as finished by like everyone but me. Also, Kaz has like 4 more days of anime watching than I do >_<'

Edit: I watched all of Ika Musume (Squid Girl) tonight after posting this. I liked it quite a bit too happydood;

i finished dororon enma-kun meeramera

it had a good OP and it was funny sometimes and i guess it was nice to see a bunch of references to older anime, but it was all bogged down by unfunny drawn-out segments and annoying fanservice

the best character was harumi, everyone else was annoying as fuck

overall poop/10

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on July 05, 2011, 04:50:44 AM
finally finished Lucky Star

if the series has any major problem, it's that it might be a bit too long. as a result, i feel the comedy is stretched a bit thin. i mean there's a lot of "wow i can totally relate" or just plain hilarious moments, but there are also some that just...drag on. overall though i liked it a lot. sometimes i even loved it. but not enough to give it a 9. almost, but not quite. so it gets an 8.


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on July 06, 2011, 04:56:07 PM
watched the Lucky Star OVA

it was pretty great, perfectly on par with the series...although i have no idea what to make of the last part of it. i have no idea what the pet shop part was attempting to parody, although i have to say it had some really interesting effects that i've certainly seen before, especially in really moody animus like Lain (the close-up effect that looks as if you're seeing the character through a door's peephole, whatever it's called, for example)

i felt they basically ruined it with that 10 minute live action sequence that i didn't even bother watching

oh and i watched the first episode of this new horrible shitty flash cartoon called "nyanpire", which is apparently the return of the animation studio gonzo

they managed to fit in this retarded live action dance number of an ED at the end (which was 1 minute and 30 seconds of course)

the runtime of the whole short was 4:30

so yeah

i finished sayonara zetsubou sensei

it was pretty funny overall, even if it was filled with text jokes i had to pause every 2 seconds for that i didn't even get

also wth in the last episode with the tsundere shoving the stick up the dog's anus and the fma, ttgl, and eva yaoi doujins and yaranaika and oh god what goowan

show could have definitely used more of a budget, though, and i was a little disappointed that the series kind of dipped in joke quality after 4 or 5 episodes

also what was with that "is he dead???" cliffhanger in episode 11? do they ever get back to that? psyduck;


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on July 06, 2011, 08:20:44 PM
yeah i was confused about the end of episode 11 too, i have no idea if they ever go back to it because i haven't seen the other two seasons

although i think season three is actually more like just some specials? or something? idk

Post by: Nyerp on July 06, 2011, 09:28:09 PM
no, the third season (zan) is 13 episodes long, but there are 2 short ova series

There are probably a few more, but they must not of been good/I didn't like them at the time.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on July 11, 2011, 01:17:36 PM
Sign is all right, but it kinda bored me so I never got very far in it.

Legend of the Twilight was an oddity because of when it was on. Friday nights, on Cartoon Network, at like 2:00 AM EST or something like that. It was not part of Adult Swim or Toonami or anything, just something they randomly filled a time slot with in network after-hours.

Chobits is tearing me apart. Initially, I had only seen the first six episodes. I liked them a lot, and I had always meant to get back to watching it. I just never did until I recently started reading the manga, which made me want to try the anime again, so I bought the DVD set.

...if only I had known how off-course this anime would go after about ten episodes. There really is a much deeper story here that the anime just avoids half the time and decides to show us Chi being cute instead. Chi goes shopping, Chi gets a job, how adorable. And then the completely stupid filler episode with the haunted apartment room? Wtf? It's like a completely different show all of the sudden during that episode, and not in a good way.

I mean don't get me wrong, I still like it and it's really cute and fun and all, but the manga is thus far waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better. Kind of disappointed.

okay so i kinda want to start watching bakemonogatari (i got the SHAFT disease)

but i have one question: tv version or blu-ray version?

i heard the bd version fixed a lot of animation errors the series had/added animation where there wasn't any confuseddood;

kaz which one did you watch also where did you download????


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on July 13, 2011, 04:01:30 PM
watch the bd

i didn't know about the later release until after i had already watched it and dealt with the animation cuts. they get really bad in episode 10. interruption after interruption. SHAFT was just undermanned and didn't have the time to finish it on schedule, so they made massive cuts to later episodes, 10 being by far the worst.

i got mine from nihonomaru and i really don't remember if someone uploaded the BD version there or not, sorry. you'd probs be better off searching for torrents.

Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: bluaki on July 14, 2011, 04:51:36 PM
Quite a few sub groups seem to give OP/ED as separate files instead of including it in every episode for reducing overall filesize, but apparently these groups use an obscure video encoding feature for "ordered chapters" that is supposed to load them automatically in the correct locations.
This feature is only available in a couple media players and, even in the ones that support it, it's off by default and the option is buried deep in the settings menu. I believe Media Player Classic and VLC have the option somewhere, but MPlayer requires recompiling to use it.

I think CoalGirls does this confuseddood;

I watched three series in the last couple days:

Higashi no Eden (Eden of the East) - it was very good. I downloaded it because of seeing it listed in the streaming poll. I would suggest it for future streams :3


Sasameki Koto (Whispered Words) - It's a heavily yuri (but non-sexual) school slice-of-life/comedy series and my favorite yuri thing I've seen so far. It was thankfully not set in an all-girls school flooded with a lesbian student body like certain other yuri series I've seen, though they only name one male character and he's a trap at that n_n


Hourou Musuko (Wandering Son) - This is like the only anime series at all that seriously focuses on transgender issues. It's mostly slice-of-life and drama in a middle school setting. Even with my obvious bias toward the subject, I wouldn't particularly call this series great, though it was pretty good.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on July 19, 2011, 06:42:30 AM
okay, so i finished Chobits

i'm sure in the end i'll still like the manga more because of couple lame filler episodes in the series (plus the recap episodes, which i actually just skipped as they're taken out of the main series order on the dvds anyway, now considered "extras"), not to mention the fact that the anime doesn't do as well to stress the whole "persacoms can't love" issue, and it also focuses a bit too much on "aww look at chi do cute stuff" sometimes too, especially in those aforementioned filler episodes

but, i don't know. i couldn't bring myself to give it less than an 8 regardless. like, i was so ready to give it a 7 and be done with it...but when the series got back on track around episode 16 or so, especially in the wonderful last few episodes, i feel like the bad stuff was pretty well made up for.

i don't know. maybe i'll reconsider my score and give it a 7 later. but for now, 8/10. i can't bring myself to be quite as critical of it as some people are, though i do fully recognize its problems.

So I just finished Perfect Blue

Well, first of all, if you know Kon's work (Paprika, Millennium Actress, Paranoia Agent), you know to expect something very surreal. That's definitely there. But this movie is where the surreal element truly becomes frightening. This was honestly one of the creepiest animes that I have ever seen, if not the creepiest. It's also by far Kon's darkest work...if you thought Paranoia Agent was gloomy, well, this is worse by a longshot. There is also a great deal of nudity. So in general, this is by far Kon's most adult piece.

But goddamn it was a great movie. I liked it almost as much as Millennium Actress. I am still debating giving it a 10 instead of a 9. Beautifully animated, gripping and suspenseful, and full of that Kon surrealism that I love him for. This piece is definitely the closest of his movies to Paranoia Agent - I think that maybe he did Paranoia Agent because he wanted to do a story similar to Perfect Blue's...it's a hunch, anyway.

Great, great movie. Can't believe I put it off for so long.

Finished Nadia. It wasn't anything way too special, but it was certainly good. At times, very entertaining actually...basically, once Jean and Nadia were on board the Nautilus more "permanently" and there was a bunch of submarine action, it actually became pretty damn cool...and then the filler episodes came in and ruined things...but once the show got back on track for the last 5 episodes, it became great again.

Overall though, again, nothing special, especially because of the irreparable damage that the filler episodes did to the series.

Breakdown:

Pros
-Genuinely intriguing story, with nothing particularly predictable
-p. intenssse submarine battles n' shit like that with lots of suspense
-For the most part, a good musical score, particularly the action tracks that have a very Eva-esque feel
-It's just plain fun, even when it's more lighthearted

Cons
-Nadia can be a totally unreasonable BITCH sometimes
-Filler episodes are mostly terrible and break the boundaries of the setting and character developments
-It's quite dated, but this might not be all that big of a deal

7/10

i guess i originally had the impression that it would be more music-oriented and less slice-of-life. and less moe. i didn't really like lucky star either.

Blood C was meh up until episode 5, now its good. The slice of life adventure of dojikko singing saya was cool but way too much time was spent on it, but now the drama meter is turned to ten.

Baccano dub is fantastic, every voice was pitch perfect.

at times, i sort of wished they'd play more music together, and there were some times when the scenes just sorta dragged on and "cute" didn't justify it...but for the most part it was good fun and i felt like it was overall a pretty great mix of slice-of-life and music animus

Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on August 14, 2011, 07:58:33 PM
Just finished Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid.

It was fucking great. I really enjoyed the first season a lot back when I watched it like two years ago, but honestly, I like this more. TSR moves somewhat away from the many comedic moments that the first season featured.

After all, the original FMP was like 60% action/political intrigue/drama, 35% comedy, and just 5% romance.

TSR, on the other hand, is more like 80% action/political intrigue/drama, 10% romance, and 10% comedy. And that comedy element is largely the same as it was before...Sousuke being a military nutjob that is totally incompatible with high school life, and Chidori always there to react violently. But the romance is handled infinitely better, with one particularly intimate scene in mind. And the action? Blows the first season's out of the water completely.

This is partially helped by the fact that the animation quality is absolutely top-notch. Everything got a major update. Huge kudos to KyoAni for treating this franchise with care, as it wasn't theirs to begin with.

My only major complaint, I guess, is that while 13 is a good number of episodes for MOST animes, this show in particular feels a little rushed sometimes, especially the combat in that last episode. I was expecting some awesome showdown between Sousuke and the primary antagonist whose name escapes me, but it was just over so quick. I think 16 episodes or something would've been better. Oh well.

I guess one other little issue is that said main primary antagonist is simply not as interesting as Gauron from the first season. I mean, it's cool that he's unpredictable and a complete head case (episode 2 in particular has some real "black comedy" moments due to this), not to mention he's sadistic as fuck, but overall...eh.

There are a couple loose ends. I hope this means that there will be yet even more FMP! to come. But they're not such huge loose ends that it matters a whole lot if there never is more. If there is, I hope it'll be as good as this.

Post by: bluaki on August 14, 2011, 08:18:55 PM
I actually liked FMP:TSR a bit less than the first season.
My main complaint about it is that, near the end, Sousuke temporarily turns into an annoying, useless, unmotivated, and Shinji-like character giggle;
Did you use the AnCo² subs?
Yes
Except for the episode 25/special. I didn't see any AnCo^2 for it, so I got Mazui.

Finished watching Last Exile last night. At some point, I was into the show enough that I could have given it a 9. Some of the show is definitely 9-worthy. But then...that meh last episode, and now that I think of it, the first half of the show did sort of move too slow for its own good sometimes...many shows would take slow pacing as an opportunity to really let the characters grow, but Claus and Lavie aren't really the best examples of "character development" out there, I'm afraid. But they're not static or boring either. Just...the show seems to meander around in their development.

To me, the most interesting character was Dio...which is part of the reason I didn't particularly care for the last episode. Very unsatisfying conclusion to Dio's story.

Still, pretty great show overall. Very reserved art style that fits nicely with the steampunkishness, pretty great use of CG (although the "tentacles" in the last couple episodes of the show stand out far too much...the best use of CG is in the vanships, I think), a mostly intriguing plot, a particularly strong secondary cast that sort of helps make up for Lavie and Claus being nothing spectacular, good soundtrack, and lots of suspenseful action with vanships and warships, with some pretty fascinating tactical brilliance, I'd say.

8/10.

there are these heroes in this city who are mutants called NEXT, they're on this tv show where they compete against each other for points (by rescuing people and catching criminals), this middle-aged hero is forced to team up with this new hero who is looking to avenge his parents' death, product placement out the ass, blah

I've only seen the first few episodes so far myself, but it's pretty much about superheroes as commercialism would use them: in a superhero show where they compete for points granted by saving civilians and arresting villians, with particular focus on a pair who have been forced into a somewhat incompatible duo

Just finished Spice and Wolf. The first season, that is. My only real gripe is with how unfinished it feels. But considering there's a second season, it's not really a relevant gripe anymore.

Art was nothing special but it was nice (there is one part where a horse is so lazily animated though that it's laughable).

Characterization is the main selling point here - the interactions between Lawrence and Horo are really what makes the show so charming. And they both have charm, that's for sure. They seem to understand each other better than we do, but we're always given hints about their real feelings for each other. But the show doesn't stoop to the level of making the romance obvious, which is nice.

It's a very subdued, relaxing story without much action (there is SOME, though), and no real fanservice or anything like that to speak of. Even in the couple instances where Horo is naked, it's not like she has real ladyparts or anything and it's not really presented in a fanservice way. There's a lot of economics lessons that are actually pretty interesting, and it makes Lawrence's trade as a merchant as well as the setting more believable.

Music is decent. There's not much to say about it, really. The OP is absolutely gorgeous though.

8/10.

And now I finished Green Green. It was awful. I mean, Eiken is a lot worse, but Green Green is the same type of super fanservice show, basically. But at least Green Green has more decent art ("decent" used loosely here), and it's not nearly as goddamn ridiculous nor is it as nonsensical. Its attempt at "romance" and "plot" are completely laughable though and the show basically boils down to something that is, at times, completely repulsive.

Imagine a man with "E-cup" moobs. Now imagine a man with a little sister complex who gets off by eating rice while watching an innocent little girl sleep. Now imagine...uhh...that one other lame pervert.

Now imagine them all naked, in a sweaty pile, simulating sex acts on one another, pretending that they are each other's "love interests" (as if love has anything to do with the girls they're after). This is an actual scene in the show. Episode 6 I believe.

At least the main character isn't like that, but goddamn. Gross.

it's a much more subdued film than one might expect from Miyazaki, a much more slice-of-life teenage romance story, but it's still got that magic you'd expect from any of his films, and it's just really beautiful and heartfelt and it was great

Finished Gunslinger Girl.

It's an anime that has a lot of problems but still manages to be good in the end. Good, not great.

For one thing, aside from the titular gunslinging girls, the character design is generally either as bland as can be or genuinely ass-ugly. And animation in general is usually pretty lazy, except in the very well-done action scenes (which are more sparse than they should be).

Pacing is an issue here as well. For a show about cyborg assassins, there isn't exactly a whole lot of action most of the time. There is typically one major action scene per episode, maybe with one or two other little minor ones. Most of the show is very slow, with different episodes largely focusing on different girls and their adult handlers. There is character development, but with a show that is 13 episodes long, compounded with a somewhat episodic nature, you're not really gonna have enough character development to make it excusable for a show to be this slowly paced all the time. Some more variation would have been nice. I feel like this balance was handled much better in the last few episodes.

I don't know. It was too short, too slow (and thus a bit boring sometimes), and too bland to be anything genuinely memorable. But it wasn't bad, and certain moments make it a worthwhile watch. And even if I am complaining, note that my complaints aren't so monumental that it's worth avoiding this show. Just don't expect anything amazing...but there's more good than bad to be had here, and hopefully the second season will help make the show seem less rough around the edges.

7/10

started toaru majutsu no index

so far i can at least say that it is visually very, very nice

i don't know though, it's honestly not interesting me way too much lol, although i can't say it's uninteresting either. i'm getting major shakugan no shana vibes here. that sort of "this is honestly kind of generic but if i just sort of tune out of the critic in my brain then it's mostly enjoyable even if there's nothing memorable happening"

but this is just the sense i'm getting from just two episodes, so maybe that'll change. at least index herself is adorable.

Just watched the Clannad movie. It wasn't as good as the series but it was still pretty great.

Character design was a pretty big step down but they managed to make it work well on its own, the music was totally different but usually worked (except for the dumb poppier songs), and of course since it's a movie the pacing was pretty weird.

Tomoyo and Kyou were hardly there, so someone who hadn't already seen the series or played the VN would probably not remember them at all, since they are totally given the shaft in this film whereas they're totally fleshed-out characters in the series.

However, the film still managed to be as depressing as the series - in a good way, of course. The way the most emotional parts are handled is fantastic and I still get drawn into it very easily, so it tugs at my heartstrings, so to speak.

The core is there - the central relationship and the tragedy - but the extra parts are missing or degraded, and the pacing is weird. But that core is what made After Story better than the first season of the series, and it's what makes this movie still an 8/10 in my book.

Just finished Kamisama no Memochou. Here's the scoop.

The cases: hit or miss. The first one was good, second was meh, third was dumb as all hell, fourth was great, and the final one was great (if only for the very well-executed conclusion).

The characters: Alice is fine, Narumi is fine (I mean, he's the only one who develops anyway), the Fourth is awesome and is by far the most interesting character and it's a shame he was as minor as he was, and Alice's other assistants were largely pretty pointless and boring. Ayaka was like totally pointless until the last case.

The music: What music? Oh, some of it was good. I guess.

The look: Pretty. Modern, HD pretty. But what isn't these days? This is becoming more and more a moot point. No real creativity here, just prettiness.

7/10, broskis. It was good, the last case was a very good conclusion with emotional investment, and the case that involved the Fourth a lot was great as well. But in general the entire show reeks of "good enough," with J.C. Staff not really attempting to do anything with this show other than cover the bare basics. But it was entertaining.

seems like it'd make more sense to finish the manga first then, so you have the complete work to refer back to when watching its prequel

and i can personally tell you that dtb's season 2 is probably even more vague and confusing than the first season and considerably less enjoyable in every way too, especially because of how little Hei action is even in it and the dumb new loli protagonist

You still can't watch 10-bit? How do you manage to have problems with CCCP? doodhuh;

HorribleSubs, Doki, and Shini-Subs are releasing P4 with 8-bit only. Hatsuyuki-CTSS is releasing both 10-bit and 8-bit versions. Only Commie really seems to be releasing only 10-bit, though they're the fastest.

finished Black Lagoon, or at least the first half of it. the second season is essentially just the second half of the series, from what i understand.

it was a fast-paced, high octane action movie of an anime. great, great fun. gritty and over-the-top as hell sometimes. but it wasn't just mindless action - the scenarios were all very interesting, and the two main characters actually have a lot more depth than you'd imagine...and the supporting cast is all good too. production values are very high. this show is animated beautifully. i mean, it's not a unique art style or anything, but it's just very, very well done for what it is. and of course, since its main focus is action, that's where the show shines the most. the action scenes are just cool as fuck, even if sometimes they're ridiculous.

it's not the most intelligent show ever, but it's stylish and fun, and never tries to be something that it isn't. it's just pure badassery.

finished Angel Beats!

it was wonderful. it had some flaws, like a couple character traits changing way too fast with no real gradual "development," which i'm basically attributing to the fact that it's a short series and there just aren't enough episodes to flesh things out with more details

but in general, it was just fucking great. wonderful humor (with excellent timing, i might add), a strong cast, a really interesting concept, great soundtrack, above-average (nothing amazing but still) art and animation, and some very emotionally strong scenes, especially the ending, which was hnnnnggg sad but still happy at the same time

9/10~

wonderful humor (with excellent timing, i might add)
there's a humor-focused full-episode-length special too
also a second and audio-only special, which isn't on MAL. A bit dull at parts but still enjoyable.

Both of them are in the folder I gave you. The latter subbed and in a video that visually indicates the speaker.

Somehow I forgot to add the Another Epilogue to my list when I watched it last year and added it just now upon noticing it in your completion history giggle;

kaz's thoughts on wolf's rain? >.<


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on November 08, 2011, 12:59:24 AM
Okay, so...Wolf's Rain.

On, the outside, it's a beautiful show. High production values from BONES, with pretty great visuals. The characters are well-designed but simple enough to fit the dreary near-apocalyptic world, which by the way is very well-designed itself. The palette is dark and grungy. It's all very moody, but reasonably so. Animation is particularly good, with a lot of great care shown in the animation of the wolves in particular. And of course, the music is phenomenal, and really bring out the emotion in some scenes.

I guess pacing is somewhat of a problem. It's not a big deal, buuuuttt...it is a bit slower than need be, with less being actually explained than I'd like. When a show is paced like this, I sort of expect a bit more plot development, but instead, a lot happens in the first and last episodes and not much happens in the middle. Like I said, it's not a big deal - I've seen much worse-paced shows. On the other hand, its pacing sort of fits the tone and the setting, so there is defense for it.

Obviously the recap episodes are a problem too. Four of them in a row is just unreasonable and it's probably one of the biggest reasons that I'm struggling to give the main series (without the fantastic last four episodes) a score of 9.

One of the things I found most interesting about this show is how, while being about wolves, it manages to treat its human characters with great care. The interactions between Quent and Hubb, for example, are done very well...the episode with them traveling together in the car is a highlight. And the romance/tragedy between Hubb and Cher is just fantastic. I honestly found myself more interested in the humans sometimes than the wolves and their somewhat typical "let's go to paradise" journey. While they're off running around, these humans are dealing with very serious, very relatable issues of heartbreak and an inability to escape the past. There's some serious Cowboy Bebop going on in the human characters, and that's a good thing.

So, all in all, it's a great show. Fantastic characters, great visuals (that first episode is a real eye-popper, btw), amazing soundtrack, pacing's a bit weak and a bit strange but usually fine, the story is maybe a bit confusing but not overly so (I've loved more confusing ones)...in general this is pretty much "9" material, but dem recaps, man. Those wasted four slots makes it hard to give that 9. I'm still kind of on the fence about it.

The series is like 40 episodes, so a 9GB batch is expected I guess. Nyaatorrents has another Utena batch that's even larger at 12GB and dual-audio.

the average episode size is around 250MB, comparing to my 204MB Cowboy Bebop, 232MB Evangelion, 300MB Trigun, and 330MB Outlaw Star episodes.

So, I'm not sure I like Brotherhood as much as the original, much looser adaptation of Fullmetal Alchemist. Certain segments that I really liked in the looser adaptation are much shorter in this one, which sticks to the manga very closely...in fact, one character who I thought was one of the most interesting antagonists in the series is actually killed off very quickly in this version. Kind of a shame, the 2003 adaptation did some very cool things with him, even if he was never a "primary" antagonist...it was like a whole extra substory that is unfortunately absent in the source material.

This show sure looks better but it's a hell of a lot more lighthearted...but in general it's still roughly just as good as the other adaptation. Pros and cons for both.

Opinions may change as I get farther into it. 10 episodes in now.

I watched Armitage III a while back. It was terrible.

I rewatched Cyber City Oedo 808, and it was even better the second time.

I started Toward the Terra, but it's such a kiddy show that I'm bored and somewhat awkward watching it.

I finished Kaiji a couple months ago and it was great. The second season dragged on a little too much, but I was satisfied with the ending.

I also watched a bit of Dennou Coil and it's pretty neat.

also i tried watching tatami galaxy but it was too repetitive and annoying. it's sad, because it has a nice art style, but after seeing two episodes, you've seen it all

Also, Mononoke is wonderful.

penguindrum 8/10 great series


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: bluaki on December 29, 2011, 07:19:45 AM
Just recently finished:
Ika Musume S2: More of the same Squid Girl; it's as good as the first season.

Mawaru Penguindrum: Overall really great series that I considered giving a 10 on MAL, but a few things (especially Ringo) annoy me enough to give it 9 instead

Fate/Zero: Though it's now a +1 completed on MAL for me, it doesn't at all seem completed. The second half starts airing in April and this first season even ended right at the beginning of a battle with absolutely no closure. It's so far pretty good and so much better than Fate/stay Night that they're hardly comparable.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Pretty much what's expected from the premise of a group of odd high school kids who would otherwise have no friends forming a club. I probably like things like this more than I should, but I found it p. amusing at times n_u

The iDOLM@STER: Though I sorta like a couple of the characters, I don't think the series is particularly great. It seems that most people who are strongly praising it played the game it's based on, I guess. It's at least worth pointing out that, despite having a giant cast of girls alongside the male Producer, it thankfully doesn't seem harem-ish at all. It also took something that looked like a bad end to turn into a good one.

C3 Cube x Cursed x Curious: I probably should have dropped this awdood;

so i just finished yosuga no sora recently...meh. it was decent for what it was, at least. however each arc was too short so there wasn't enough time to really develop the stories and as such the romance ended up being a bit shallow. the stories behind each girl were interesting, though.

it looked pretty, although the character designs in general were nothing really special, but they worked i guess.

the music was good...mostly.

i didn't really expect much from an ecchi anyway so it's nice that the show wasn't awful. just decent. i guess. idk.

in other news, still working on continuing the first Lupin III series and FMA: Brotherhood. i have to say i really do not care for these new Xing characters in Brotherhood, they're way too "typical shounen" and sort of stick out because of it. ninjas from the east, of course.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on February 10, 2012, 05:54:54 PM
so, first impressions if Nisemonogatari and Black Rock Shooter

the first episode of Nisemono was hilarious. honestly, this whole episode of Mayoi was better than Mayoi's entire arc in Bakemono. she's funnier, she's more clever, she even breaks the fourth wall. i loved the joke about adding "courage" to any word, and how ridiculous and out of hand it got. i love this show already. of course, it hasn't really even gotten to the story yet. so we'll see if i continue to love it. i'm guessing it's likely.

as for Black Rock Shooter, there are only two episodes out so far and i watched them both last night. i can already say that this show is much more promising than the OVA was. the idea's still a bit shallow though...how the realistic school struggles of a middle school girl translates to her "inner" Black Rock Shooter always fighting in this other world, taking the abuse for her. and the situation the main character finds herself in, what with her friend having this crazy, possessive, psychopathic bitch for her other friend...it's pretty over the top. but i mean, i didn't have super high expectations for this show anyway, so i'm pleased that it's a lot better than the OVA.

my major criticism is actually just that the visuals are a bit weird in a couple of ways. first of all, i have no idea who thought half the hairstyles in this show look good. they're downright strange. secondly, while the animation in the "other world" is very, very fluid and pretty, there are times when it ends up looking a bit...fake-ish? like bad cg? it must be a combination of hand-drawn and cg, because you only notice it now and then, most of the time it looks beautiful. thirdly, that other world does look a bit...cheesier than the dark, checkerboard-and-chain-filled  world that BRS is usually depicted in. it's for some reason bizarrely colorful, while still being gloomy and such...it's weird. i get the feeling they were taking a note from Madoka Magica.

anyway, it's still quite good thus far, so we'll see if it can keep it up. considering there will only be six more episodes, i'll be quite disappointed if they can't keep up this momentum.

Sure. It's the same length as other episodes and a direct sequel rather than spin-off silliness. New content that wasn't in the VN, but it seems consistent with the original story.

Watched Kemono no Souja Erin last week and because Kaz was posting about FMA Brotherhood it reminded me to watch the last bit I had left to finish and I just got done with that.


It always feels a little bit sad when you finish a long anime, especially if you've really gotten into it.


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on February 25, 2012, 04:19:09 PM
yeah, and finishing FMA: Brotherhood sure felt good :3

I guess I never did post my opinions on it here, so here goes. First off, let me say that I did very much enjoy the original 2003 series. But Brotherhood is simply better. The art style and animation is more consistent and more fluid, and of course, more "HD." The music isn't just forgettable background music anymore, although it doesn't have that many standout tracks. Production values are simply higher everywhere you look, even on its English dub, which is excellent and features many of the same voice actors from the 2003 series dub. Probably all of them, actually.

The biggest difference, though, is of course this show's story. This is a direct manga adaptation, while the original series had to come up with its own stuff, as it flew past the incomplete manga pretty quickly. So this is "the real" story, if you care about something like that. I don't, but regardless, the story is simply a lot better than it was in the 2003 one. In particular, the antagonist, Father, is a much more intimidating force behind everything than the lame old lady, Dante, from 2003. The new characters are all fantastic. It took me a while to warm up to the Briggs soldiers and their commander, but I did. Ling and Lan Fan are more or less immediately likable, though.

The homunculi have all been vastly improved story-wise as well, with Lust serving as a plot point that really makes Colonel Mustang stand out more as a character. Because he really needed the help - I felt that Mustang was simply not involved enough in the original series. Anyway, all the homunculi here are done right, although I have to admit that Pride is sort of...eh, whatever. Envy has been improved the most, given much more depth and, of course, given his "true form" that the original series did not use.

By the way, in 64 episodes, there's less filler (none, basically) than there was in the original series's 51 episodes. The pacing is excellent, every episode is pretty much packed with everything you could want, especially later in the series.

Oh, and no shitty movie to conclude the series! An actual ending!

Honestly the ONLY thing in Brotherhood that's "worse" than the original is that it's got some of those chibi comedy moments that weren't really in the old one, but they're few and far between and not particularly out of place. I suppose you could also knock Brotherhood a bit for not being quite as "dark," especially with Ed's character, as the 2003 one. On the other hand, I simply think it's got a better mix of emotions, so you can take your "darker" Ed and stuff it.

Never thought I'd be giving a shounen this score: 9/10.

In a relatd note, a bit less than two weeks ago, I watched a new FMA movie. I'd say it's decent, but not nearly as good as the series was. It basically is about the Elric brothers getting involved in a city's dark past of creating philosophers' stones as well as the rebellion of a small neighboring and exiled slum

Started "Ga-Rei: Zero."

I don't really know what to think of this show yet, after two episodes. I know I sure was misled, though. It starts off seeming pretty formulaic, and then the end of the first episode just...wow, did not see that coming. Happy that I was surprised, and certainly convinced to keep watching.

And then episode 2 continued with more things happening that you just wouldn't expect, especially in the beginning of a show.

Upon doing a little research, apparently episode 1 and 2 are basically the end of this show chronologically, but I didn't look into any more than that, for fear of spoilers. Looking forward to seeing what caused the already depressing events of this series.

Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on March 14, 2012, 07:34:36 PM
Finished Ga-Rei: Zero last night. It was a pretty great little series. My only real complaints are that a couple specific things in it are kind of dumb...namely the bizarre way that some of the characters fight, especially the director. Silly weapons everywhere. And the CG isn't particularly great, in fact it's quite mediocre at times. Thankfully, it's mostly only used on one specific type of beast in the show...which is recurring, yeah, but it's not really important either.

Other than that, pretty great show. I wasn't amazed or anything, but I was never let down either. The first two episodes were pretty damn crazy, and when the show finally circles back to them, explaining the events in more detail and setting up the start of the manga...great stuff.

Of course, one could fault it for being as short as it is for what kind of story it's reaching at, but it is only trying to tell a small portion of it, the rest of which is in the manga, so I don't personally fault it much for that.

Character design's a bit meh, art's good all around though, solid enough animation. Sound design is not super memorable, but is more than satisfactory.

It's a pretty nihilistic series, it kind of hates all its characters, and there is no happy ending, but Kagura and Yomi keep the humanity in it alive, and such humanity (and that which threatens it) is more or less exactly where the strong emotional impact in the series comes from.

8/10. Great. But with flaws that keeps it far from ever approaching 9. If I could give a more precise number, it'd be more like 7.8.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on March 18, 2012, 06:41:50 AM
Finished Nisemonogatari. Overall, only slightly worse than Bakemono. Some things were better, some things were worse, it evens out to being pretty close to the same level of quality.

9/10. I will write more on this when I'm not so tired.

Finished Black Rock Shooter.

Man, I dunno, this show wasn't that good at all. I gave it a 7, and I'm wondering if maybe I'm being too generous there. I mean, the show is animated very, very well (though the "real world" character designs are pretty dumb and sometimes randomly poorly drawn)...the music's...fine? There's nothing wrong really with the concept of the story. And the story itself isn't necessarily bad so much as it's just sort of nonsensical...

But jesus fuck, could these girls be any more emotional? This show has the most overdramatic, permanently PMSing girls I've ever seen in an anime - a medium that very commonly features overdramatic females to begin with. The reasons for their pain are pretty stupid. I can understand throwing a little tantrum over feeling like you're the third wheel to your new best friend and her friend that was there before you...but cutting off your hair and screaming in the middle of class, only to go home and destroy your room?

And don't even get me started on that blonde bitch, serious issues there. Lmao.

The show just has very shitty characterization. You pretty much watch the show for the "other world" fight scenes, which are mostly beautifully done. And when the series gets into its last few episodes, and the connections are actually explained, then the show is better. And it's got a nice, strong ending.

...meh. Maybe I will change it to a 6. That 7 maybe really is too generous. But it certainly did pull itself out of mediocrity in the last two episodes...

Fuck, I can't decide.

4 is where "bad" starts - it can't be that. and 5 is just "average." while it certainly is a 5 in a couple episodes, it's not that overall.

just finished the whole thing including the bonus episode
so yeah overall I just liked season 1 more, although season 2 did have much better character development for birdy and stuff. it was still good, I just prefer season 1.
The ending kind of sucked. I mean it did wrap up a lot of things and answer a lot of questions but there were so many things lefts open and even plot points that just barely started at the very end that were completely ignored. There doesn't seem to be any plans for a season 3, which is really disappointing.

i finally watched solid state society

it was...good? i guess? not too much different from the series, and it provided a better ending than 2nd gig did

i was just kind of expecting more i suppose

especially since the story kind of mirrors the original ghost in the shell movie, same name for the villain and everything

except the major doesn't really change after the whole thing so it really loses its impact...and everything is just left kind of ambiguous...and i wasn't really a fan of the "WOW I WONDER WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS LET'S END THE MOVIE WITH A LONG CONVERSATION" type ending...

eh

everything that made the series so great was still present though, so yeah

Super long post incoming.

Okay, so, I just finished a new series this season called "Another." I did not look into this series at all before starting it. I just saw the title, saw the art style, saw the genres being labeled as "mystery/horror" and such, and just decided to give it a shot.

What I got was a pretty mediocre show that was, while moderately enjoyable and quite well-produced, honestly one of the stupidest things I've seen in a long time.

Let me tell you how it went down.

The first episode had me very interested. I noted immediately that it was a very pretty show. The character designs weren't particularly anything special, but the settings were drawn very well, with dark tones and rust and an overall sense of decay. Rather fitting. More so, I noted that the sound design was pretty goddamn great. The "music" was mostly creepy atmospheric noise, electronic hums and such, I don't really know how to explain it, but the point is that the show was very atmospheric and creepy. It was really well done. Everything had a sense of creepy mystery to it. It was tense.

The mystery itself was very interesting as well. I was still under the impression that it was going to be more of a mystery show, after all. The premise is interesting. Basically, this school's Class 3 is cursed - an unknown calamity causes students to die mysteriously in it every year. I won't go into details, you don't need them. Even after the ridiculous death scene at the end of episode three, I was still under the impression it was going to be a slow-moving, interesting show that keeps you guessing, with an emphasis on atmosphere.

It all goes to shit pretty fast around...oh, episode 8, I guess. Yes, episode 8 is where it suddenly takes a massive drop into schlock. Mind you, it was already getting kind of silly before that, but ep 8 is where it just...wow.

First of all, there's a huge problem with this show's "death scenes." I put that in quotation marks because, like Nyerp mentioned to me in stream chat before (and I didn't really know what he meant by it at the time), this show simply becomes Final Destination in anime form. You know everyone's going to die. And they do. In the last two episodes, literally like 15 kids die. It's excessive as all fuck. And the death scenes mostly range from strangely convenient to downright hilarious. I'm not kidding when I say that this is actually a pretty funny show in the last two episodes. I almost started wondering if it was supposed to be a comedy.

Since none of you are going to watch it, allow me to highlight some of my favorite ones:

(click to show/hide)


The deaths are essentially what ruin this show. That and the terrible ending which basically reveals that the whole thing could have been avoided if one of the main characters wasn't retarded. This could have been a nice, interesting mystery show with good visuals and great sound design if it weren't ruined by the show's demand to have EVERYONE DIE in the STUPIDEST WAYS. There are seriously like 25 or so people that die through the course of this show, around 15 of which are in the last episode. It completely ruins the mood that the first few episodes built up.

Earlier, when talking in stream chat, I wasn't yet done with episode 8, in fact I had only just started it before watching Durarara with you guys instead. So yeah...I had no idea what was in store in those last five episodes. Good god.


Here's the break down:

Art: 8/10. It looks great, character design isn't super special but it's good, the environments are drawn very well and the whole thing is MOSTLY animated quite well.

Sound: 9/10 for when it's actually being ambient and atmospheric like it should be, 7/10 for when it's not.

Plot: Tough to say. Plot became largely irrelevant in the last episodes, but it was important before. But the mystery was only very slowly developed, and once you learn things, the show starts sucking. But it is a very interesting and pretty unique mystery. 7/10, good, could be better.

Enjoyment: 4/10. Fucking...god. What the fuck. Fuck this show's asinine gore-hound pandering. At first, I was enjoying this a lot. It went terribly wrong as the show got into its later stages. Sure, some of the deaths were hilarious, but it was still retarded.

Overall: 6/10, and I feel like this is generous.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on March 27, 2012, 06:28:20 AM
And if any of you are wondering, yes, I am legitimately mad that the show betrayed my expectations. I was intrigued by the unique mystery. If anything, that's why I kept watching it.

Fucking asshole of a show trolled me.

Around the time Another had two released episodes, I watched them both and felt pretty bored the entire time (even for the purpose of building up mystery, it seemed way too slow). Although I was leaning toward dropping it before even finishing the second episode, I decided to give it a bit more of a chance and watch the third. n_u

That silly umbrella death seemed at the time like it'd be indicative of how the rest of the series was likely to be, which was enough for me to feel no doubt about dropping it, but I apparently underestimated how silly and forced the remaining deaths would be.

I don't drop things often at all bassir;


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: bluaki on March 29, 2012, 05:15:46 PM
I recently finished a few things:

Black Rock Shooter: (7, which might be a little generous) I mostly agree with what Kaz said about this series. I don't get why BRS-related merchandise and stuff seems to be so popular; I'd say that, of the original song, OVA, and this TV series, none of them are particularly good. I find it rather dull that most of the fighting in the series is without any purpose and the plot gives a somewhat silly excuse for it in that those characters only exist to fight without any goals or even a care as to whether they win or not.

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou: (9) You guys have a pretty good idea of what this series is like. The humor is sometimes hit-or-miss, but it's overall pretty good.

Rinne no Lagrange: (7) Quite simply, it lives up to its premise of three high school girls piloting robots. Good, but not particularly outstanding. Although it shows focus on themes like apocalypse, poverty, rejection, and death, it remains pretty lighthearted throughout the series and the main character stays very confident. The art is extremely colorful. Second season was already announced to air this summer.
By the way, one of those girls names her robot "Orca" after her favorite animal giggle;

Last Exile Ginyoku no Fam: (8) I'd say it's about as good as the first Last Exile series. Just like in the first series, battles feel a little too drawn-out but the rest of the series is great.


and I'll finish three more series (Persona 4, Shana, and Kill Me Baby) within the next few days

I watched Kyousougiga last night. I had little idea what was going on, but I figure it might just be a preview for a series, as a "sequel" has apparently been announced.

Was animated pretty well, but I've seen better. The art style was more or less the main reason to watch it. Or just to listen to Rie Kugimiya again. She's always a great seiyuu.

Idk whatever it was good for what it was. Just good.

7/10

Oh and I started watching Death Note, I'll actually finish it this time.

oh please, that's nothing compared to later n_u

the much more overt sexual jokes are basically nisemono's flaw when compared to bakemono

its strength is that hachikuji is a much better character

overall i prefer bakemono but i still loved nisemono as well

Finished Death Note this morning. Everything's already been said about this anime, so I won't say too much.

This show is at its best when it's Light vs. L. That's when the show's writing is the strongest, with the moves made by both characters wowing the viewer at every turn. Because this is a series that relies on mind tactics - there's very little physical action. So when, after the time skip, suddenly Light is making more mistakes (out of over-confidence, perhaps) and his new antagonists aren't anywhere near as thorough as L was, the show gets considerably duller.

I also have a problem with Misa, who brings unnecessary, stereotypical comedic moments into the series. Not very often, but still. I don't think it's very helpful. Most of the real humor (of which there is little) comes from some of the very over-the-top animation, if anything (the potato chip scene, and some of the most hardcore writing scenes ever).

This is a series that almost lives up to its hype, but not quite. It's still great, but it's got a legion of fans that are unwilling to admit that the show does have its flaws.

8/10

uh yes

in bakemono, she didn't serve at all as a character that araragi could actually talk to on an equal level, let alone one that could actually give him advice and provide that much comedic relief. in particular, i really love the first episode of nisemono almost entirely because of hachikuji, with all the fourth wall breaking jokes and "cool male protagonist sayings" trope jokes.

yeah, it honestly sort of bothers me how great characters like kanbaru were sort of...gimped and just made into fanservice

granted, the show is supposed to be more about his sisters, but even then, my favorite moments in the show shinobu, hachikuji, and senjougahara ones

i certainly agree that it doesn't live up to bakemono, even if i did enjoy it a lot more than you lol

my only real criticism so far, from just this first episode, is that it sort of overdid how often fujiko has her tits out lmao

but whatever, this was said from the beginning to be a much more adult and much more "sensual," as they put it, lupin series

but i'm glad it still contains the wackiness, too. lupin's character is still great, while being a bit more mature, and his methods are still over-the-top and silly

great first episode, can't wait for more

That's exactly what Another seems to be like from what I've heard (mostly from Kaz) about it

I actually somewhat like this series, though. Maybe I too easily ignore certain silly details, like Yukiteru too easily forgiving his father for killing his mother and otherwise being a terrible person, fail to notice some others, like being decapitated while still moving, and too easily get over undeniably ridiculous details like the twisted personality and actions of that 4-year-old much earlier in the series. n_u

i actually really love baccano's dub because of how energetic it is, not to mention that it actually contains accents, which are of course impossible to do when you have american people speaking japanese instead

ladd's voice in particular i really adore, and isaac and miria are also far superior in english imo

also ennis is my "whyfoo" or whatever you guys call it i guess.

I watched Roujin Z (http://myanimelist.net/anime/2000/Roujin_Z) on Thursday and liked it quite a bit. I liked it very much better than Akira, which shares the director, although apparently general opinion on MAL is the opposite.

It's largely scifi-ish, starting with showing that medical treatment of the elderly is becoming overwhelming and a certain group tries to create a super all-purpose machine to take care of them, which ends up causes some significant issues for the rest of the movie. The machines' capabilities gradually become more ridiculous throughout the movie.

Though I do strongly doubt it'd take that route, they seemed a bit too close at several points in that episode girl;

Well duh lol, I think everyone expected there to be undertones of that. But it's also pretty obvious that our main character likes girls, and I also doubt it will actually become outright shounen-ai at all.

Even if it did though, as long as it continues being this good, then whatever.

Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Nyerp on April 17, 2012, 04:20:55 PM
i just finished UN-GO and gave it a 7/10

it was a weird show...still good, but it seemed like it was two different premises mashed into one conflicted anime

and honestly it was WAAAAAAY too short for all the shit it tried to do and all the statements it tried to make

there was just some stuff that didn't fit in it at all, especially the EPIC ACTION GIANT MONSTERS OMG YOU GUYS scene in the last episode (which apparently no one in the city saw????)

also, a little warning: the first 2 episodes are pretty much the worst in the entire series. maybe it was just me, but they didn't grab me at all, and the ways the mysteries were "solved" was disappointing.

that's another thing; this is a mystery show where the detective can CHEAT. and this cheat is NOT really ever explained within the context of the setting. so...it might be kind of hard to look past that in order to enjoy the show.

however, the series doesn't go with the "there's a mystery -> inga uses magic cheat on the mystery -> it's super effective! -> the mystery fainted!" formula for its whole run and i'm SO GLAD at that

the art and animation are well above average, it is BONES after all, and the music has a nice flair to it, so there's that

a little nitpicking: in the 10th episode, they show you very distinct silhouette of who the real culprit is for the final arc...and that just left me thinking "WHY". why would they do this. let the goddamn mystery be a goddamn mystery, jesus. oh, and the killer's ultimate motive is tooooootal bullshit.

i'm not too sure about this score...a 6/10 seems way too harsh but this definitely isn't an 8/10 in my eyes...so, eh

I may be alone in this, but sometimes I like the episodes that have nothing to do with the source material.

like there was this episode of dbz where goku and piccolo had to get drivers licenses and it didn't make any sense cause they could fly (and I think goku knew the instant transmission then too)

but it was so ridiculous that I enjoyed it.

i got some from torrents ddls that were later dead, some from torrents that were later dead, and unfortunately had to get the rest from minitheatre. the files are a bit lower quality, but i dealt with it. but i just now checked minitheatre, and those links are gone.

it has a huge impact on mustang as a character, actually...and it builds up until it eventually culminates near the very ending

as for what hughes discovered, it actually does have an impact, but ed mostly figures it out on his own

either way i can't say much more because pretty huge spoilers for much later in the series
Yeah, I'm fine... except... it's a terrible day for rain.

what? lol, i never said anything of the sort. it's not "just" a shounen series, it and the original series are both shounen but they're very good shounen series that thankfully do not conform to many of the things that makes generic shounen such a bland style.

i wouldn't have given both series such high scores if i viewed them as "just shounen," and never have i said anything that would imply that i do

goonish

i'm not even opposed to watching shounen in the first place, there are quite a few i'm even watching right now lol, no idea where you get these ideas about me

i agree actually lol

the first series handles a couple characters better, especially tucker imo, because he was a pretty cool pseudo-antagonist later in the first series but of course in the manga and thus in brotherhood he was never like that

does rose even appear after the third episode in brotherhood?

let me guess: no

also this is an incredibly minor complaint but the xingese characters felt like they had been transplanted from a different show at first, they just felt so out of place

and i still don't like may chang that much but eh

AND IT STILL BOTHERS ME THAT THEY SKIPPED OVER YOKI'S INTRODUCTION EPISODE AND JUST SLAPPED HIM IN THERE LATER BECAUSE THEY EXPECTED THE AUDIENCE TO ALREADY KNOW WHO HE WAS

that's not how adaptations work :|

you know, the show kind of loses its edge when the final episode is nothing but a string of "OMG LOOK EVERYTHING IS SO HAPPY LOOK AT IT AREN'T YOU HAPPY TOO" moments

mustang getting his eyesight back just like that is some bullshit. and really, it's kind of difficult to accept that scar got off so easily.

all in all, i don't think this show was any better or worse than the original anime; in fact, i think the main reason why people think it's so much better than the first series (besides the usual "BAWWWW BUT IT'S MORE FAITHFUL TO THE MANGAAAA" bullshit argument that retards make) is that they've been tricked into thinking that a bigger story, one with more characters, more fights, a more "epic" scale, and more plot in general, is necessarily a better story

and that's just not the case bassir;

not to mention the fact that the first 12 episodes were a rushed, barely watchable mess or how the comedic bits completely killed the tone of the show at several key parts

...or how the emotional core that made the original series so appealing had been sacrificed somewhat to make room for the much bigger helpings of everything else...BUT EYE DIE GRESS

8/10

(click to show/hide)

also the main villain was shit, his motives were shit, he was generic as fuck anime villain #56832, his origins still weren't really defined well enough for me to care (hoenheim's blood was USED to create him...but what else? WHY does he exist? WHO made him?), hell even the 2003 anime's silly original villain felt like more of a developed concept i mean christ

This series has so far (17 episodes) had basically (and thankfully) no sexual fanservice, not even an upskirt when all the schoolgirls float around in zero-gravity, and I honestly expected it to not include any romance either until now.

It's pretty good overall

The series largely focuses on character development. For most of the episodes, the episode is largely spent developing one character, showing their past and current interactions/events (with many episodes expanding on a previously-shown event from a different character's perspective) followed by that character challenging Utena to a duel
Although they always show subplots in character development, most episodes actually don't develop the primary plot at all. Except for four very filler-ish episodes (of 39 total), the subplots are all pretty good.

The beginning (first arc of three) starts of a little slow, but the later parts get much more serious

i previewed some manga series at barnes and noble's today because i had a lot of time to kill

two ace attorney series, a certain scientific railgun, rurouni kenshin, madoka magica, and k-on

ended up buying two volumes of k-on, and also all of solanin in a single, very nice book

i see that railgun is very cheap on amazon so i think i'll get some of it there

how is the kenshin manga?

the small amount i read was stuff that was pretty accurately adapted in the anime. i read the chapter that featured the fight between sannosuke and anji, during the shishio/kyoto arc. so i'm guessing that at least that arc, which is like episodes 26 to 66, is more or less the same in the manga. but the art was of course quite a bit cooler.

i can't say a whole lot because they didn't have any volumes that WEREN'T part of the kyoto arc.

kaiba was interesting and all, but i'm not sure i really ever had a grasp of what the hell was going on with its plot...and i'm not sure i really cared after a certain point.

i really hate it when otherwise decent shows try to pull off convoluted faux-DEEP endings.

other than that, the show was just a little too rough around the edges for my tastes...in pretty much all aspects, but most notably its animation. one particularly bad episode (the 5th one i think) was just ugly in every sense of the word. i don't care if they were going for a different way of animating it so that it stood out stylistically, it was fucking GROSS.

ugh...i gave it a 7/10, and sadly i feel like that's being generous. this show seems to be beloved by a small group of people, and i can't really think of a reason why other than "omg its so different and deep u just dont get it!!!!!"

http://fffansubs.org/?p=1182

Apparently this group decided to start re-encoding all currently-airing series (including those they aren't subbing themselves) to the same 8-bit/MP4/hardsubs format I just recently converted Madoka and Gosick to. Thought you guys might be interested.

I wonder why I've never seen other fansub groups release this format, considering the demand for them should be greater than 8-bit MKVs, which I see many groups continue to release alongside 10-bit. Not like I care much, because I prefer 10-bit.

I've been intending to try watching some other magical girl series since then, but that so far only includes Madoka

up until then, she was just a goth loli version of kirino to me.

Again, Im not saying i didnt like kuroneko, and I agree, i do like her and the other characters more, but after a while I only cared about the guy (kyosuke?) and manami (who unfortunatly doesnt have a lot of screen time). I also still liked the show, giving it a solid 7. and the reason i say that kuro is like kirino, is because thats how i felt the show played them out.
kirino likes magical girl, and kuro likes that code geass-lookin show and they both get the exact same when one makes fun of the other, which makes their relationship quite enjoyable, but ultimately made me not care by the end, as i cared more about the main character;
wow sorry, that was long, but im just trying to get my point across, not start any kind of argument.
I respect anyone's opinion, and tyr to make them see that.
and that's my two cents

just finished Howl's Moving Castle

to be honest it was one of the worse Ghibli films i've seen...mostly because the pacing is pretty bad. things just seem to happen with no build-up or anything...and the characters "develop" so fast that it feels cheap. of course, this doesn't keep it from being a fairly great film, still. it's got plenty of other things going for it. but it seems like miyazaki was too busy focusing on all the beautiful minor details and scenes instead of adapting the characters or story to their fullest lol

it's probably mostly just really popular because girls love howl and daydream about making sweet bird love to him

but it was a very enjoyable way to spend two hours regardless happydood;

Just finished both Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.

I love the original soundtracks of both of these Animes, but never watched them before.  So, this Summer, before I go back to school, I wanted to watch them.  And I finally did.  Both were fantastic, in my opinion.  Even if I have a list of things I'd like to criticize on both shows.

Since both of these Animes and their soundtracks have affected me in such a fucking great way, and that I want to respect the people who've made them; I bought all 3 original soundtracks of Samurai Champloo.  Discs, not by downloading.  I'm planning to buy Cowboy Bebop's albums when I have enough funds.  It's just that I find more tracks from Samurai Champloo's albums more appealing. 

Oh, and ever since you introduced Death From Above 1979, I bought all of their albums, too.  I also gave a copy of the 'You're A Woman, I'm A Machine' album to a good professor/friend of mine, because I thought he should be introduced to some "different" music.

Yessssss.

This was the same for me, too.  I mean, I did skip most of the openings on each episode.  But for this particular anime, I don't think I really got annoyed when I ended up having to watch it.

I always watch the opening and ending themes the first time and then depending on how awesome they are, i either skip the rest, or just watch them each time.
examples include, Bebops opening/ending, BAccanos opening, Elfen Lieds opening, and GUrren Laganns opening.

so today i finished Mobile Suit Gundam. the original.

it definitely slowed down a bit around the middle and was a bit formulaic at times, however when it was at its best, i actually really, really enjoyed it. the main characters are great, some of the supporting ones are nothing special but in general both sides of the war are pretty well-developed for this being the first anime of its kind.

music was pretty good, opening and ending are pretty memorable ones, the sound is definitely reflective of its late 70s/early 80s era (in a good way, mostly).

and for this being as old as it is, it actually looks pretty great

if i could give decimal scores on mal, i'd give this something like a 7.6 or 7.7, soo...8 on mal.

they are stretching 3 episodes TOPS worth of material into six or more boring-as-hell episodes

and they're about the one of the most clichéd, done-to-death school anime subjects ever: a fucking cultural festival, with yet another overblown "mystery" that the characters pretend is the most earth-shattering thing the universe has ever witnessed

typical over-indulgent, over-budgeted, otaku-baiting HORSE SHIT from kyoani that everyone will love and spend money on while their actually entertaining shows (COUGH NICHIJOU COUGH FUCK) are overlooked for not being MOE DESU enough

i started watching Rainbow...and so far i don't really like it much lol

it's supposed to be some sort of "adult" show about prison but even just from two episodes so far it just seems like an overly melodramatic Power of Friendship show...with character designs that are all over the place, ranging from acceptable to bizarrely out of place or hideous. also the op and ed are really bad.

we'll see what becomes of this show, i guess. most people seem to really like this show a lot, but i did notice some reviews that seem to fall more in line with my complaints, and one of them did say that the first seven or so episodes are the worst, and that it gets a lot better ultimately saving the show from being too bad. so hopefully he's right.

Finally got around to finishing Dennou Coil, which I started ages ago but for some reason just stopped watching it about 1/3 of the way through. I don't even know why I stopped.

It was a wonderful show. It's original, creative, beautiful to look at, all the characters are likable, and the show is at its absolute best for about the last ten episodes.

Honestly, my only major complaint is that...while the first part of the series is great, and I enjoy its laid-back nature and the Ghibli playfulness of it, there are some times when it really, idk, just sort of gets a bit dull. In particular, there are two episodes I could have more or less done without. So yeah, sometimes the pacing can be a bit weird...which may cause some people to find the last part a bit jarring because it moves a lot faster and it's not the cyberpunk slice-of-life that the show might have seemed to be for a while.

Really though, that's only enough for me to say that it maybe doesn't deserve a 10. It might honestly be pretty close to one, though. I gave it a 9.


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Big Goop on August 21, 2012, 12:19:15 PM
Finished Minami-ke.

It's a "Banchou" show srsly :)
I really enjoyed it, and when i rate it, I will give it a solid 8.
The reason for an 8 and not higher is strictly because it's just another one of those shows that
has no point really, but that's any good comedy, i think. like any slice-of-life/comedy, ther's no real
story progression, so I can never bring myself to score them any higher than 8.
But i really liked it a lot, as Kaz can probably vouch for.

I'd say it was surprisingly better than expected. Not very great (nowhere near the top of the list of things I'd recommend), but it was at least worthwhile and amusing in my opinion.

how about dusk maiden of amnesia?
It was pretty good. Maybe my second favorite series from this spring, behind Fate/Zero, but because of various things with the Fate series, I'd sooner recommend dusk maiden than it.

watched Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence tonight

brilliant film with a few shortcomings that keep it from being a masterpiece, just like the original GITS film. basically, i think the sequel is just as good as the original, but in mostly different ways.

its production values are very high, but the actual 2D animation isn't really as impressive or interesting as the original's highly stylized, hand-drawn animation throughout. this one sort of over-relies on CG sometimes. but it's still very well done.

thematically, it's also very different, and while it still raises classic cyberpunk questions, they are perhaps questions that are not as...weighty or important. it's like the first film raised the big ones, and the sequel, very much a sequelly sequel, simply expands on it a bit thematically. however, again, it does this very, very well.

i found it very interesting to have a film that focused on batou and togusa, since motoko isn't around anymore. it's nice to have their roles and characterizations expanded upon.

the music is actually better than the first film, i think. more than anything, it's simply less depressing - but this fits the mood, as it's simply not as cold of a film as the original was (tying in with the less weighty themes).

9/10

no not really, it was actually a more or less good show all things considered

Finished ef - a tale of memories last night.

Pretty good. The Shaftiness helped keep it interesting, but they also really overdid it sometimes. But this is a visual novel drama along the lines of Key's stuff, so seeing it all Shafty was pretty odd. The show was no Clannad but it was definitely good, at least. Just too disjointed, and nothing particularly stands out I don't think. And the ending was pretty unsatisfactory. Not the ending itself so much as just how Shaft handled it. It's abrupt. But that might be helped by the second season, I really have no idea.

7/10

watched dragon ball z. got to the beginning of the namek saga where vegeta fought dedoria.

uhh well most of the filler episodes were shit, there were only a few that were particularly funny or something if you ask me

but what really ruined the show was that it even went longer than the frieza saga so i guess there's no saving it

i still say the cell saga is good though i lost interest in the buu saga (mostly cause majin buu was a lame character and Gohan was a shitthead. I mean he always was but like even more so in the buu saga)

maybe its nostalgia goggles. yeah it was kind of refreshing that the snake road thing didn't take so long. however it cut out that bit where he fought the snake women and when he fell into hell.

well i like SOME of the filler episodes...goku's snake road/hell episodes were some of the better ones, lol. what i didn't like about snake road though was how often it would just randomly cut to him running on the road for a minute or two every episode. we get it, he's still running.

cell saga is pretty decent, it's better than the android saga that led into it and it's better than everything that comes after it. the cell games have an awful lot of just staring and still shots and talking, though.

the way gohan was handled in the buu saga was retarded. first of all, he was the great saiyaman at first and that's honestly one of the worst moments in the entire series. secondly, he's trained hardcore to become this badass, he was the strongest non-fused saiyan again...only to just get eaten by buu. so what the fuck was the training for? it's like the broadcasters burst into toriyama's studio and suddenly told him "WAIT WHAT IF WE FUSED GOKU AND VEGETA INSTEAD OF USING GOHAN" and then they were like "well fuck idk just kill gohan off these kids won't care"

whatever it was good. I enjoyed it. Not as much as Paprika, or Paranoia Agent.

I got confused in some of the parts and couldn't tell what is a movie and what is her life, which I guess is the point, but was kind of annoying. Like The cop with the scar. Was he the soldier who visited Chiyoko at the studio? Also, what was the deal with the old woman who cursed her? Did that really happen or was that part of a movie? But I guess it could also be said that she was just a crazy old lady who couldn't get her facts straight.

Perfect Blue is next on the list. Was going to watch it the other night but the rental place didn't have it in stock :|

the way EVA ended makes me not want to watch the movies because i thought the ending was really good.

End of Evangelion still incorporates the "what goes on in Shinji's head" aspect of the Third Impact

it's just not as dragged out, because the movie also focuses greatly on what happens outside of his head and what actually leads up to the Third Impact happening

regardless of whether you like the original ending, the movie ending is really more the "real" one. or "expanded" if you will. the way Anno wanted it to end.

yeah, i just finished Lain so i will probably watch it now before starting another series. 
idk,  i like the way it switched what was considered Important
 like from the survival of mankind and the ~mystery of what an EVA actually is~ to  shinji's personal problem of why he should bother existing after he 'fulfilled his role'   and how it is actually Really Important that shinji knows that he is ~a person that matters more than what other's see him accomplish~ idk .

it is extremely important to the series yes, because one needs to remember that eva is a very character-driven story about people with a fuckload of problems (seriously not one character with any decent screen time is NOT an emotional wreck)

but don't worry, end of eva still does this. in a way, i think it does it even better. particularly with regard to the very end of the movie. you'll see.

so i really like what we're seeing with nekomonogatari so far

since it's about hanekawa's original transformation into black hanekawa/meddlecat, it's more reminiscent of bakemono in pretty much every way. a character with an actual problem (the fire sisters didn't really have "problems" to be solved by koyomi at all), with meme explaining what's going on, etc.

as far as fanservice things go, i guess there's slightly more of it than there was in bakemono, but it's nothing like all the stuff that was nisemono. but that's to be expected, as these are straight adaptations, and nisemono was a smutbook compared to the rest of the series.

even bakemono music is brought back, in addition to the writing style that's less comedic and of course the characters

so yeah i like this more than nisemono so far

Nekomonogatari: Kuro (Black) is the first half (4 episodes) and they're already being done

Commie has released 3 episodes so far
UTW (the far better subber) has released 2


no idea when Nekomonogatari: White will come out

although i guess White's not really a sequel - the whole Nekomono story is in Black, but White tells it from Hanekawa's perspective

nyaa.eu, where all new anime episodes are released as they come out

it's a public tracker, no need to worry about ratio issues

also, UTW like just now, within the past few minutes, finished all 4 episodes. they released all four in one video file. probably because that's the way it aired anyway, as an hour and a half of nonstop nekomono. all the raws were done as one file, as well.

I just finished Evangelion 1.11 and 2.22. I think that they were really well done but I think they could have worked on the relationship between Shinji and Asuka a bit more. The ending was far different from what I thought it'd be and not nearly as cool as The End's but was still good.

you know, when you read the liner notes for 1.1, it says that movies 3 and 4 will be released at the same time.
is that not happening? i kinda wish it will, since we'll probably have to wait until 2014 for the american dvd release of 3.0 as it is.

well you don't really know what he's referencing when he says that

in his defense, the very ending of clannad after story does something that doesn't really make any sense because it wasn't elaborated at all in the series. it's something that made more sense in the visual novel.

it's not the same kind of loop being thrown for that eva has going for it goowan

yeah that's the part i was talking about. it just sorta happened and then they spend 10 minutes they could have used to elaborate on it (since its a super critical plot point) having fu-chan argue with her sister for no real reason

Post by: Nyerp on March 11, 2013, 03:48:05 PM
how is it not a harem? all the girls in the show rely on okabe to solve all their problems (sexist), and the narrative moves from girl to girl in typical harem-plot-train fashion until it finally focuses in on the "final girl" who the main character "wins." the girls just sit around in the show, being swayed by the main character and the other men in their lives to do things, never taking action on their own (with the exception of maybe kurisu). the show also uses its time travel gimmick to reduce one of the girls to a pure moe "oh look she's dead again, cry some more" plot device so that the pigs watching the show can insert themselves into okabe and fantasize about protecting mayurii and the other cookie-cutter stereotypes. the woman in steins;gate are punched, shot, run over, and overall dehumanized just so that the viewers (who are intended to be men) can "get off" on this "tragedy porn." im anita sarkeesian and u just got fempunk'd

Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: bluaki on March 12, 2013, 12:22:15 PM
to support nyerp's point, several of the girls do show romantic interest in okabe in at least some world line:
Kurisu: Near the end of the series
Ruka: Loves Okabe regardless of sex. In the game's Ruka end, they even show a picture of Okabe with Ruka and a baby.
Feyris: Mostly omitted in the anime, but in the game's Feyris end they're a couple also participating in competitive card games together
Moeka: I wouldn't call that scene in the anime anything close to romance. Though it's not in either the anime or the game, some side media shows a "gamma world line" (probably canon) where Okabe is working together with her under FB's orders and they seem to be a couple.

but not all of them:
Mayuri: She's always just a friend. Even in the Mayuri end.
Suzuha: Also just a friend.
Nae: Okabe's not a lolicon. Also, in one of the game's endings, she absolutely hates Okabe, goes crazy, and time-leaps back a decade to kill him as her 11-year-old self.

i can't recall very much perversion in nhk. i can recall one very tame joke regarding sexual imagery while interpreting dreams. and of course during much of the show, the main character and his friend are developing an ero game, so every once in a while you get some jokes regarding that.

but perversion is not a focus of the show at all. it's not an ecchi show in any way. it's a somewhat comedic but mostly dramatic show about depression and being a hikkikomori

thanks for the tip but i kept that in mind and i thought it was brown.  anyway, i just think she's well spoken and dedicated.  although im annoyed of sato, regardless of some lies (i only watched 4 episodes) he's made, lacking action, and etc.- i will always come back to my perspective in that: people just want to be loved and to be proud of themselves...for the most part.  i'm willing to see how he tries to attempt at it.  i also see myself a bit in him.

first series: 9/10
second: tentative 8/10 as i liked the first one more, but it is SO tempting to raise it to a 9 even if it is a little bit worse

LOL I BOUGHT ALL THREE CURRENT VOLUMES OF 'It's Not My Fault That I'm Not Popular,' even though I can't read them.  I just wanted to support the author...haha...

About $21.00 (Rounded to the next.) for fucking shipping, though.

I just finished Robotics;Notes.

It was pretty good. Among the Semicolon Science Adventure series, I like Steins;Gate better than it and ChäoS;HEAd is awful and can't compare at all. The first half or so of this series seemed rather slow, but it suddenly picked up around the middle when things started actually happening. Unlike Steins;Gate, there's no urgent need to save the world pushed onto the main characters until near the very end of the series.

Also, despite being a series focused on robots, it took until the very last episode for there to be any sort of giant mecha battle, which is in my opinion a good thing (I don't really like mecha action at all).

The best way ever to answer a love confession and marriage proposal, from haganai:

sena declares love for and desire to marry MC
MC pretends that he didn't hear while everyone else in the room stares at him knowing that he did
sena begins to repeat her declaration
MC suddenly grabs his bag and starts walking out the door, saying "Oh, right! I have to do something!"

so far im at episode 12 with nhk- yeah i've been pretty slow.  i liked umm...episode 5 or 6?  i forgot which one.  and...the episode when sato's mom came.  aww...

but yeah im REALLY anxious about this episode.  im only like 6min in, and they're on the boat.  what the fuck are they going to do im scared

Post by: the MIB the on March 24, 2013, 04:04:58 AM
okay i have to admit, nhk has been a bit shitty to me, especially the 13 and 14.  i have some personal criticisms.

those specific episodes were almost unbearable- though it's not like i'd disagree with somethings done and said, but...ugh I wish i could word my thoughts.

still going to finish it though.  at going to start 16 tomorrow.

Just finished 'Welcome to the N.H.K.'  To be honest, there were only about eight episodes and some little chunks from other episodes that I liked and could relate to.  But other than that...I didn't like it that much. 

Though, there are a few things I'd like to discuss about this anime with someone...but too bad I don't know too many that watched it.  The first like...seven minutes or less of the last episode was really...great.  It made me cry a bit, to be honest.  I relate more to Misaki than I would ever with Sato. 

This show really could have been condensed in thirteen episodes.  It was stretched, in my opinion.

how was it stretched? without basically everything that sato goes through, the conclusion wouldn't make any sense because his growth would seem too sudden.

anyway, almost everyone here who watches anime has seen this show, so yes you do know plenty of people who've seen it

I don't know, I just feel that it was stretched a bit.  Sure, you can say his growth would have been sudden, but I don't know- I just felt as if Misaki's appointments were gradually becoming a bit "empty" or trivial.  I felt that the Anime project game thing was just some project way, way off to the side and something made up to give the audience some sort of thing to look forward to, and the out come of that was empty as Hell.  I guess you can say I didn't feel at all like some things in the anime didn't feel like were contributing to Sato's hikikomori ways.  I mean, the main reason why he got out and working was because of his parents' problems, right?  And just beforehand, he was contemplating about whether he'd be some hikikomori for life.  Though, I liked watching when Sato's mom's debut, the offline meeting, Megumi's, Kashiwa's, and Misaki's problems being looked into, I liked it when everybody just started to "leave" abruptly, too.  It really showed that things just move on.  All of this is just from my perspective, anyway.  

Anyway, although I know people who have watched it from here...it's...just that I don't feel I know you guys enough- just not "fond" of.  Just when going into more personal shit.  God, it feels odd to type out.  And, I guess one of the things I related from Sato playing an MMORPG was that we're both pussy as shit when trying to...reach towards someone online.

i watched this "fanime" and i liked the op so much that i wanted to find where it came from, and i even watched the episode.  almost half of it was the opening.  anyway, i found out it was elfen lied.  

i started watching elfen lied since I've heard it too many times in the past and my curiosity got the best of me.  now whenever i watch an episode i can't stop laughing because of the edginess that was exaggerated before

episode 8, it's been shit so far imo.  i might as well finish to say that i did, i guess

agreed with the bad art style, but i liked the attempt to be "grimdark."

anyway i just finished elfen lied.  i didn't really enjoy or even relate too much with this anime...save for a few episodes and some parts.  imo, it was just so god damn...whiny, bitchy, cheesy, and some parts, can't say specifically, seemed too cliche.

For anything that aired reasonably recently, nyaa is almost always the best place to get it.

i'm sure nyaa has batches still

dunno which group to go with though, as i didn't watch it

ask blu
"still"? A lot of things never get a batch until after BD release. But 12 episodes isn't very much to download separately.

Go with URW. It's a joint between UTW, which is usually reliably good, and some other group.

ouverture is a two-episode special which iirc explains a bit of backstory with suigintou
it was released almost a year after the end of traumend

I watched both seasons and that special in 2010, about 4 years after it all aired.

I think this most recent episode of oreimo is pretty good
but apparently the LN-reading people of the internet absolutely hate it and claim it's the worst episode ever

it shows backstory for one of kirino's friends (the spiral-gasses saori) and reminds me of Otaku no Video, with one character in particular acting like the MC of chuunibyou

watched 3.33

this isn't even evangelion anymore it's a completely different series that just happens to start out the same and have the same characters and the premise of the plot is the same but it's executed so wildly different at this point

seriously if you thought 2.22 changed a lot, you haven't seen anything yet. 3.33 has no content lifted from the series, it's completely original and the story is completely different lol

it's still kickass though, but the series is still a lot better

With all the source material of Railgun that exists, J.C. Staff sure loves opting to instead add extra pointless content like buying a rice cooker or searching for a four-leaf clover instead of actually adapting more interesting scenes.

About half of the actual manga content that made it into this week's episode was in the first two minutes that showed before the opening theme.

i read the railgun manga and i won't watch s2 until i get far enough in the manga where there'd be no spoilers if i watched it

but watching Index S1 already spoiled you for this part of the Railgun manga

Have you read the Sisters arc of the manga? It'll take a long time for this anime series to finish that arc.

yeah, i suppose that's true. but i mean, that was from touma's point of view - there's stuff missing from index that's from misaka's point of view. the beginning of the railgun version of the sisters arc already had more to it than index did.

also, i've read four volumes - the sisters arc just began in the fourth volume. volume 4 ends with misaka charging at accelerator after he attempts to kill the sister that misaka had met already.

The end of volume 4 is the end of episode 5

The most recent episode (7) is at chapter 25, which is the second chapter (of 8 total) in volume 5
Volume 6 features Touma's involvement (pretty much everything you saw in Index)
The Sisters arc ends at the beginning of Volume 7
There's no telling how far beyond that this anime will actually adapt canon material

In two and a half days, I finished Fullmetal Alchemist: Brothergood.  watching that shit reminded me of the days i spent staying up watching fma back like 6-5 years ago.

what i hate about yotsubato is that they changed the name in America to...
Yotsuba and.
They couldn't have thought that that was a good idea.
Its original title is "Yotsuba&!"
I just typed yotsubato because that's how it's pronounced in Japanese, but I don't think I've ever seen the "to" written out as anything but an ampersand the manga itself.

Does any English media actually spell out the "and"?

i still havent watched index 2 for some reason even though i saw index ages ago
Index 2 isn't nearly as good as Index in my opinion

it feels like the plot gets messy and is getting way too many characters who have insufficient explanation
according to people on the internet who read the novels, the problem with Index 2 is that they rushed the adaptation and covered too many novels and that most of the novels it covered were some of the worst in the series

In general with the toaru series, I feel like the science arcs are so much more interesting than the magic arcs, with Index 2 in particular having magic arcs that emphasize that difference even more.

then again, there are a lot of series i haven't seen the sequels or second seasons 2

like code geass goowan
I watch sequels to nearly every anime I watch the first series of. The only exceptions I can think of right now are:
Pokemon, because of length
Symphogear, whose second series actually hasn't aired yet, but I have absolutely no intention of watching it

I guess I've been watching a few from this season, like Gargantia and Valvrave

kind of also Aku no Hana, Attack on Titans, and Yahari Ore whatever romcom of the season, but I've been falling behind on those

I did finish reading the manga for Welcome to the NHK last weekend, though. That was a bit different from the anime.

so way early in the morning i finished Inuyasha: Final Act.  i remember when me and my brother watched ALL 167 episodes of inuyasha together and lol shit that was so long.  and now i have more time, i finally got to finish it. 

i p. much had to force myself through most of the 26 episodes but it was great seeing it end throughout this whole time.  Sesshōmaru gets his arm back <333

then i might finish through ummm oreimo, since that's pretty short and im halfway through.  then after that, not too sure about continuing anything involving anime anymore...unless i wanted to finish yugioh lol

Kanatagatari was really great. Like really great. I'm so glad I didn't have to watch it while it was airing though because waiting a month between episodes would have been killer. Especially the last two.

yeah i saw that you and kaz both gave it a 7
idk
if you look at my list i tent to rate things higher than other people
i feel like its easier for me to enjoy shows because i am very empathetic by nature so its easier for me to invest emotionally in characters and because i'm involved in them i overlook flaws the show might have
i like to just enjoy the show and i don't really criticize them unless there's something glaring or if there's a super overused trope (i'm looking at you, "one of our friends is rich and has a house on the beach" and also "they only kiss at the very end")
also for this show specifically i liked the longer episodes. originally i didn't realize they were almost an hour and thought they were really going to have to rush it to do twelve swords in twelve 22 minute episodes. but the long episodes were nice and you got to know each sword owner pretty well. the characters were all likable in their own way and no one was clear cut good/evil it was all really shades of grey, which i like
i don't know why i rambled

I think I originally gave it an 8 then lowered my score to 7 after a rewatch

Kaz and I actually have a better opinion of the series than the others who watched the stream and several episodes before the end people were tired of the series and wanted to stop watching. Nyerp and Tec both rated it 4/10 and I forget if there was anyone else.

I think complaints were mostly along the lines of excessive dialogue, too many full conversations that have very little plot relevance, ridiculous character personalities, silly scenes about things like togame's "romance" being out-of-place, etc.

even if someone didn't really like it i don't think it deserves a "bad"

the -gatari shows all have ridiculous characters and lots of dialogue so expecting anything different is kind of silly. actually this show had a lot more action to dialogue than say Bakemonogatari. lots of talking can be bad (SNK has been really bad about this the last few episodes) but i think katanagatari did it well personally. even though some conversations are kind of frivolous those usually are to let us see more of the characters which i always think is good even if it isn't central to the plot, as long as things actually happen and it doesn't turn into a bunch of pointlessness broken up by short bursts of plot (valvrave. though admittedly i sort of gave up after episode 6 and haven't watched since)
also i think i liked it because it it was different from a lot of other shows just in the characters and the setting and stuff. it helps that it had nothing to do with a high school because there are way too many shows about high school. seriously.

If you want to see another magical girl anime that's more like what you'd expect them to be like, try Lyrical Nanoha

Although nanoha also strays quite a bit from typical magical girl anime, it's more like a combination of magical girl with shounen. It's the next most-recommended magical girl series and is pretty good.

Other more typical magical girl series I've seen are Precure, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Shugo Chara. They're all too long to easily recommend: about 500, 70, and 100 episodes respectively.

I recently started reading the toaru majutsu no index light novels

The first anime inconsistency I noticed: the book says that from Touma's room's balcony the next dormitory building is less than two meters away (which makes Index's story of jumping across rooftops make more sense), but in the anime the distance is clearly much more with plenty enough space for a street or courtyard.

I like how the LN claims that, although Stiyl is over two meters tall (6'7") and only 14 years old, "His great height was characteristic of foreigners" like that kind of height would be unsurprising in the west.

>still watching commie
Commie is very often the best group doing some particular shows

even if they like to put in the occasional utterly ridiculous detail or overly liberal translation

like with the recently-aired Nyarlko season, their typesetter really overdid it with things like making part of the OP lyrics translation be really fast scrolling (unreadable without pausing), making certain dialogue lines have effects like growing, shrinking, or being moved+rotated in a way as if the line was thrown off-screen in situations where the speaker was interrupted and pushed by another character

although somewhat liberal, their translations are usually fine with much fewer obvious mistranslations than gg
like gg using the line "That's, like, just your opinion" in Valvrave

As of more than a day ago, yes. I already posted about it in the chat thread.
This happened quite a bit earlier than I expected: http://www.nyaa.eu/?page=view&tid=454481
(both of the first two madoka movies)

Despite being flagged as a raw in nyaa, this does indeed have English subtitles. And another track with Chinese subtitles.
but that link you just posted is a newer upload that apparently uses better subtitle styling.

Both of these aren't really "fansubbed" though. The Blu-Ray had English subtitles on it that people just ripped.

Watching the new Rozen Maiden- and the first episode, although more of a recap- there are some major differences between the recap and what actually happened in the other seasons.

MIB, that's because the new series is a continuation of the manga instead of a continuation of the anime, which was different from the anime.

Like it's an adaptation of the second part of the manga basically.

I actually quite like the new Rozen Maiden so far.

I mean, come on.  I can't even believe that he's ditching his classes for this shit.
They show that, even before getting into doll-making, Jun wasn't a particularly great student. Although he's good enough at understanding it to silently call all his classmates idiots, he doesn't care much for it and probably skips often; the classmates' reactions might also imply they don't see him often. He's at least better about attendance than he was in middle school.

i can't think of anything quite as purely surreal per se but i think you would like satoshi kon's films if you haven't seen them (perfect blue, paprika, millennium actress) as well as his serious paranoia agent

they're definitely rather surreal and very cerebral

you also might like serial experiments lain which is somewhat surreal and is all very hypothetical internet-era cyberpunk mumbo jumbo and i love it

and mononoke (not princess mononoke, different thing) you would probably also like

keion is a nice feelgood show. i really liked it but your milage will vary

try out Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou. it's ridiculous and hilarious and bad. or Hataraku Maou-sama! which is less ridiculous but actually good and still funny.

definitely save madoka for later. it gets pretty heavy.

I finished Haibane Renmei just a week ago- forgot to post it then.

But yeah...weirdest feelings I've ever got from an Anime...something didn't seem right to me the whole time.  I don't know why.  It's such an innocent show, too.  I didn't even like it much. 

Also, I watched it because a forty-one-year-old high school physics teacher recently did suicide and this was one of the animes he watched and one of the OST's of this anime was used in his website he edited before he did suicide- which used to be a site he recommended his students to go to when he was teaching.

It kind of went together I guess.

well i mean it's an acclaimed series for a reason lol

almost everything you wrote in your review is honestly really weird things to get mad about or even notice all that much and it's kind of weird and almost obsessive that you hated such minor things to that extreme of a level (i mean, 2/10, that's pretty terrible)

also lol bringing up rozen maiden, a genuinely generic and overly "anime-ish" show, when talking about something like haibane renmei, a breath of fresh air in the world of slice of life animes.

This is similar to that 7 i gave madoka.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on September 30, 2013, 12:17:33 AM
7 is a legitimately "good" score though so there's not really anything weird about that

i wouldn't really be surprised if someone disliked madoka enough to give it a mediocre score

but for a show like haibane renmei it almost seems like.........heresy

holy shiiiiit kill la kill

definitely more or less what i expected from trigger though. i mean sometimes the budget shows, there are some moments where the animation is weirdly stiff and the hyper stylization sometimes gets slightly in the way of being able to tell what exactly is going on BUT it looks fucking awesome regardless and this is going to be a very good show probably. the only thing it's really missing so far is a kickass ost like gurren lagann had. didn't really notice any standout music.

no you didn't

commie has been really retarded with this show and decided to pretend the recaps didn't even exist, and fucked up their numbering as a result

so their episode 11 is actually episode 13, as they skipped both recaps but did not number episodes accordingly to said skip

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on October 08, 2013, 11:13:27 PM
they're better than commie's

commie's monogatari has had some stilted wording, typos, and they're being dickbags about their episode numbering.

pretty much the only major choice differences though in subbing style has been that commie chose to keep black hanekawa's nya-speak, while hs didn't bother. on the other hand, in the same arc, the tiger has a particular way of speaking and commie completely dropped the ball on him.

all in all HS has been doing a better job

did you enjoy it

btw there are three additional episodes, two of which are more or less just like the show (one of these was done much later by shaft with a more modern and worse art style though), and the other of which is about kino's time with her master, who taught her how to shoot and stuff

this, mostly

and the fact that it's fun and doesn't take itself seriously and it's just so over-the-top in a good way

things like this are all also part of what made gurren lagann so great, the show that it resembles most. some shots remind me a lot of panty and stocking, too.

i just got told by someone that kill la kill is gross because it incorporates "self-harm as a prop to shock people" because ryuuko uses that device to effectively slash her wrist or whatever to use blood to fuel the godrobe and also it has "casual rape jokes" (probably referring to the godrobe forcing ryuuko to wear it in ep 1)

i can't tell if they're serious or just mocking the bullshit on tumblr revolving around this show

sometimes i wish tumblr didn't watch anime ever awdood;

lol no way

(plus they're not a sub group, it's more correct to say "crunchyroll is better")

underwater by far and large has way better typesetting and i like their scripts better as well. video quality also seems a tiny bit better.

bear in mind i have watched both. i haven't watched commie's though, but commie's a joke so i'm not going to bother.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on October 14, 2013, 03:08:19 AM
i have no idea who they are

but really, between horriblesubs and commie and underwater, i like underwater the most. stylish typesetting (especially with regard to character introductions), slightly better scripts overall (there are a few places where hs did a bit better though, mostly just in a couple scenes of ep 1 tho, although underwater came back and did better w/fight scene w/boxing dude and a lot better in ep 2), and slightly higher video quality

hs is of course a lot faster though, so if you can't wait, nothing wrong with using them

i mean hs is doing fine but a show like this just begs for underwater's special treatment:

kyoukai no kanata kinda annoys me because it seemed like the kind of show that could've been something totally different for kyoani but it's honestly not

i mean i'll still watch it and hopefully enjoy it but the kyoani formula is starting to get stale even for me

also, horriblesubs said on their twitter twenty hours ago that monogatari 15 "will be delayed" which was already half a week late at that point so i wouldn't bother waiting at this point lol

they'll probably end up a week behind before 15 is even out and then who knows what happens from there

danganronpa is going pretty pretty cool i'm half way through it. it reminds me of phoenix wright sorta.
the similarities with phoenix wright are even more clear in the game that this anime is based on

examining a scene for evidence works exactly the same
the "endless debate" is practically a PW cross-examination with messages that float around and need to be aimed at in order to object (by firing a metaphorical bullet of evidence at it)
and the trials have other gameplay phases too, but those are mostly gimmicky and dull with nearly no relevance to mystery-solving

I'd say I like Ace Attorney's gameplay mechanics much better, but danganronpa features I like include multi-speaker cross-examinations and using a previous statement as evidence to show a contradiction. Super Dangan Ronpa 2 also adds statements for which evidence can be used to support rather than contradict it.

I tried starting:

Trouble Chocolate
The World of Narue
Kanon
The Familiar of Zero
Save Me!  Lollipop

lol none of them are good imo


oh and i did finish rozen maiden 2013

I think i loved the last episode more than any other episode to be honest.  i was legitimately happy for jun

it's probably a sign for me to watch some nhk similar anime or something

it's not great or anything but it's pretty good, and it's a nice bit of nostalgia

i wish they would actually do a full series about red's exploits instead of just this 4 episode ova

i say give it a shot, david. just be aware it's a very short adaptation and thus skips over most things very quickly.

that's unfortunate.  i'm looking it up, wow the episodes could at least be an hour long a piece or something.  smh :(

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on November 03, 2013, 12:55:10 AM
yeah, they could at least be longer. i'm hoping that this is maybe something they're doing to see how interested people would be in a full adaptation, but i kinda doubt they'd go through with it tbh

it may have been little more than something to coincide with x/y's release, since x/y has a serious boner for red/blue (kanto starters, mewtwo, the original legendary birds, etc.). plus i think it has mega charizard x in it. so yeah, x/y advertisement.

it's just got very well-thought-out characters and a lot of tragedy but something is usually gained by the end of an episode as well (with some notable exceptions)

the fact that the directing is absolutely flawless probably helps too

that episode's art direction was very much inspired by the 90s batman cartoon, thus the design of mad pierrot as well as the heavy shading throughout the episode

especially evident in the opening alleyway scene and that first fight between pierrot and spike

i also really like the bizarre mix of Pink Floyd's "On the Run" used in the creepy as fuck backstory montage for the experiments on Pierrot

really it's just one of the best episodes in the series. that show does so many things and so many styles and pulls them off so well

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on November 08, 2013, 09:36:18 PM
why?

to put it lightly, it's not a normal anime lol

more like a construct of various cyberpunk ideas and stream-of-consciousness in anime form, also some commentary on psychological issues (self-identity, self-worth, dissociative identity disorder, net dependence)

and it's very surreal and artsy-fartsy and vague and while there is a story, i wouldn't say that plot is the show's focus

i mean by all means i hope you enjoy it. it's one of my favorites. but it's definitely not for everyone. n_u

Finished Noir. 7/10, good show.

Admittedly a bit dull, and never particularly great, but its flaws aren't quite big enough to keep the show from at least being solid. It's worth noting, though, that for the first six or seven episodes nothing really happens in the overall plot and there's way too many flashback scenes repeated over and over. The series is definitely slow-paced and takes a while to gain any steam. Once it gets going, it's definitely good.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on November 13, 2013, 07:38:43 PM
I need to get into reading more manga. I've been putting off a lot of manga for a long time now. For example, Oyasumi Punpun. I already loved Asano's art and writing styles because of already reading Solanin, so there was no real reason for me to not read Punpun.

I think I'll start reading that tonight maybe.

And then I've been putting off the Jojo manga for aaaaaages. I think I'll start that right now lol.

Really I just don't read enough manga period.

Wandering the packed tunnels of Shinjuku Station, famous author Yosuke Mikura makes a strange discovery: a seemingly homeless drunk woman who can quote French poetry. Her name is Barbara. He takes her home for a bath and a drink, and before long Barbara has made herself into Mikura's shadow, saving him from egotistical delusions and jealous enemies. But just as Mikura is no saint, Barbara is no benevolent guardian angel, and Mikura grows obsessed with discovering her secrets, tangling with thugs, sadists, magical curses and mythical beings - all the while wondering whether he himself is still sane.

I have no preference for subs or dubs really
I don't usually think dubs are all that bad and subs can be just as bad (poor translation, obnoxious voice actors that can be difficult to distinguish due to the language barrier)
so usually I'll watch dubs unless they're especially bad or if the subbed version is especially good, or of course if no dub exists i have zero problem watching subs

finished Lupin III: A Woman Named Mine Fujiko

it's a good series, but ultimately i have to question its existence. firstly, i'm slightly spoiling by saying this, but this series isn't actually an origin story for Fujiko like it claims to be. this has two effects: rendering her backstory in this show pointless, and making it more bearable. because when i thought it really was her origin story, i thought it was stupid.

the show is much better when it's a more episodic thing, though

but hey, it's lupin, and it looks great. it's a well-crafted show. unfortunately, while the art style is consistently awesome, a lot of times there's not actually a whole lot of fluid animation. but that tends to be the case with highly stylized shows a lot of the time so i'm not surprised there.

the show succeeds at being enjoyable to watch overall, and is well-done aside from the completely bizarre attempt at a fujiko origin story, but i wouldn't call it anything special. 7/10

oh, also i don't really like oscar. i sort of like his story and his tragedies and the way his internal strife is represented on screen but as a character in general i don't really like him and he doesn't really fit in with the lupin franchise at all, let alone as zenigata's sidekick.

there is not a single happy person in Oyasumi Punpun

bittersweet moments aside, this manga is pretty much continuous, overwhelming sadness. at least, after the first volume.

i knew it'd be depressing (after all, i've read Asano's work before) but damn

it's a comedy, felt. there is one girl who genuinely wants to get it on with another one of them, but for the rest of the characters, it's just implied (albeit heavily in some cases), and it's always a source of comedy and never anything serious. there's no actual lesbian relationships in the show.

last december a couple of friends and i did something where we went to bakabt and hit random torrent enough times to pick up one series, one ova (or series of ovas) and one movie

and only just today did i remember that i still never watched the movie i ended up with. first squad.

i started watching it like twenty minutes ago. and i already think this movie is really dumb.


Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Rin Hoshizora on December 18, 2013, 08:36:49 PM
First Squad: 4/10

don't even bother

it's completely unfinished and disjointed and things just move from point a to point b with no real explanation and all the characters are flat and lifeless and the whole idea of there being a special operative occult unit taking part in a real war has been done over and over anyway

i mean it is sort of neat how like the climax is a fight between two sides of the dead for the sake of the living happening in what is a mere second in the world of the living, but it's still also dumb. the whole thing is dumb.

the movie looks fairly nice but what doesn't these days

Post by: PLEASEHELP1991 on December 24, 2013, 06:43:06 PM
i just got told by someone that kill la kill is gross because it incorporates "self-harm as a prop to shock people" because ryuuko uses that device to effectively slash her wrist or whatever to use blood to fuel the godrobe and also it has "casual rape jokes" (probably referring to the godrobe forcing ryuuko to wear it in ep 1)

i can't tell if they're serious or just mocking the bullshit on tumblr revolving around this show

sometimes i wish tumblr didn't watch anime ever awdood;

edit: scratch that he was being dead serious awdood; awdood; awdood;
to bump this discussion, what did he have to say about persona 3

i don't know. he actually unfollowed me and blocked me on skype because apparently he hated me for disagreeing with him about kill la kill.

i know this because his girlfriend, who i've been friends with for a long time, told me about it right afterward and she thinks he's being a giant baby about it lol

Corey, you'll notice that about Tezuka books.

He uses many characters over and over, in what people call a star-system. If you become familiar with his other books, you'll begin to understand the characters.

That being said, when you open a new story, it is indeed a new story but with old friends.

Title: Re: Currently/just finished watching/reading anime/manga thread.
Post by: Classic on December 26, 2013, 08:46:32 PM
It depends. The one you're reading is more of a family-friendly book. If you want to continue with that,  the Astro Boy books are good (a series of 23 books), a 2-part series called NextWorld is a good one, and of course the novel version of Metropolis which is much sillier than its movie counterpart.

BlackJack is a little more mature but still has the sci-fi theme going on. It's basically HOUSE before the show was invented.

And of course his adult books are also great, though they can often go into disturbing territory.
I just got done reading Barbara which was a very depressing book. There's also Message to Adolf which features a story of a young Japanese-Jewish Boy accepting his role as Hitler's sidekick. Swallowing the Earth is a good one too...The Book of Human Insects is one of those disturbing ones. Ode To Kirihito and Apolo's Song.

Basically there's a book to satisfy what you want. You can't go wrong.

finished Joshiraku and its OVA

i liked it a lot more than nyerp did at least, but maybe my weebness helps that because i found a lot of the stuff that was overtly japanese to actually be really interesting and fun to watch, like the segments where they tour famous parts of prefectures and stuff

as a gag comedy though some gags were way overdone and some were underdeveloped and it sort of comes off as a show that would've been better handled by a different studio lol

i liked it though, 7/10

finished The Mysterious Underground Men.

What was almost more interesting than the book (which is a very enjoyable read and charmingly illustrated) was the afterword and essay at the end of the manga. Tezuka wrote the afterword himself back in 1982, and briefly addresses some influences, but the essay by Ryan Holmberg delves further into these influences (which include Blondie and Popeye??) and even how Tezuka's positioning  and movemet of his own characters were influenced by Disney ten cent comics that were brought to japan through the american occupation of japan during ww2.

Also brought up is that this manga is one of the first to have a kind of bittersweet ending. Which i guess is a staple for tezuka, but was unheard of in manga up to that point.

i remember reading a short excerpt and it was yotsuba swinging, and she started swinging really high and the other girl was like "dont let go!"
And yotsuba let go, and went flying and landed on her feet.

Then she was like "scary...." and then ran away goin "Scaryyyyyyyy!"

uhh lol

half done with the show, and only one instance of "plot" has occurred so far. otherwise it keeps going back and forth between trying to be a vaguely action-y show and a complete moe moe kyun show

it would be a genuinely good show if it could just pick one or the other. as it stands, especially after the last episode (kyoani flexing its animation budget for an obligatory dancing/singing scene to kill a dreamshade? come on), it's hard to even see it as a complete product

the characters are fine, it's a pretty show, obviously the animation is phenomenal, but other than that there's...nothing

KILL la KILL 15 delayed
Written on 23.01.2014 | Tags: News, Anime, KILL la KILL

It seems that Crunchyroll has delayed the simulcast of KILL la KILL 15 by 12 hours. Under normal circumstances, we would be translating the episode from scratch instead, but today just happens to be the one time when our TL checker / translator-on-demand for the show isn't here (and won't be back until tomorrow). So unless we can find a backup translator from somewhere in the next hour or two, our only option is to just sit tight and wait. Sorry for the inconvenience.

so yeah no they likely won't be getting their version out any earlier than anyone else

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on February 05, 2014, 06:22:02 PM
finally got around to finishing Oyasumi Punpun, since the last volume was finally properly fan-translated a couple weeks ago

i'm somewhat indifferent about the very end of the manga...though i have no idea what could have been changed to make it better anyway.

all in all though, it was something else. having already read solanin before, i knew already that i loved asano's art style, and it's even better here.

as for the subject matter, though, it's honestly a bit hard to say how much i enjoyed what i read for what it was as opposed to how much i enjoyed what i read because i maybe related to it a little too much. after the first volume, it is a crushingly depressing story with seemingly no limit to how bleak things can become.

it really is a very good manga though i think, if maybe a little bit drawn out and there's a substory going on in the plot that i never really understood the purpose of. 

it's kind of hard to collect my thoughts here. it's a manga that made me think a lot, and made me very sad as well. i'm just not sure how to talk about it. it was...a very personal read.

i finally got around to finishing kyoukai no kanata

i remember back when this was due to air in a few weeks. i was pretty hyped. kyoani finally doing something that isn’t slice-of-life or comedy. could this be the return of the kyoani who animated full metal panic: the second raid??

no. no it couldn’t. and to be honest, this is a misstep even for the current cash-grab status of kyoto animation. i would have preferred another samey, but good, slice-of-life like they’ve been mostly doing for ages.

because this show is a mess. the setting is shoved onto us with no feeling of this world being fleshed out or understandable. the only characters that undergo any sort of development are mirai and akihito. the combination of action and slice-of-life is jarring and sloppily put together, and is also one of the causes of the show’s bad pacing issues.

but it is pretty. then again, when was the last time a kyoto animation show wasn’t pretty?

…never?

and let’s not forget about the completely half-assed ending. not the studio’s fault, i imagine it’s in the light novels as well. still sucks though to have an ending like that thrust on us at the last second just for the sake of a happy ending.

also, you can’t just have a “main antagonist” do things at random without the audience getting any clue as to the reasons behind their actions. how are we supposed to root for the heroes if the villain is just some handsome guy doing things that seem to have no effect on our main characters anyway? what was the point of the scythe-gun thing? why did he want to make the shade beyond the horizon stronger? why did he harbor a shade in his body? why was he at odds with nase family? what even IS the spirit hunter association?

while i may sound like i hated the show, that isn’t the case. while it is a complete mess, i did at least vaguely enjoy most of what i watched. it’s a decent show, but it’s probably one of kyoto animation’s worst shows, if not THE worst. unless you really hate slice of life or something, in which case you may like this more by default because you’ll hate their other shows.

i’m thinking a 6/10 for being “decent” and vaguely interesting, if still a huge disappointment. and for being pretty.

Post by: Rin Hoshizora on February 20, 2014, 04:45:24 PM
"jojo" is a character in a beatles song but other than that i don't think there's any particular reference

but the mangaka for jojo's bizarre adventure very commonly applies names of bands or songs to characters for no particular reason so i wouldn't be surprised if that's where he got the idea to make his main characters all named "jojo" (for short)

and trust me there are dozens more music references in later arcs lol, especially with regard to the Stands once they come into the picture

which we'll see the first of pretty soon, as arc 3 Stardust Crusaders anime should start in the upcoming season
