Just saw "Children Who Chase Lost Voices" on crunchy
Oh you watched the OVA? Ever since I watched Arakawa Under the Bridge I'm still undecided whether to read the other work of the author...well I'm quite lazy with manga that the only one I really read now is Kuroko no Basket lol
Just recently watched all of Darker than Black season 1. Really cool stuff!
Season 2 is a bit slow and odd in comparison. I highly recommend season 1 boxset though if you are into antiheros and dark/mysterious plots.
finished code geass
Been a long while since I posted here, but Heres what Im currently watching...
Psycho-Pass (Its alright, Could have been a great ghost in the shell'esk anime but Im guessing they went with the less complex storyline which inevitably fucked it sideways. The anime does bring up some good points about life/civilisation and society though)
Seitokai no Ichizon lvl.2 (cuz im bored enough)
Jormungand (great anime if you love guns and shit)
Anime i just finished watching:
Zetsuen No Tempest (a total mess in terms of story structure)
'K' (pretty awesome, kind of wish it wasnt so short)
stuff i downloaded and still need to watch:
Stuff I didnt finish because they bored me to death
last Exile - Silver Wings
I know that some in the list are pretty bad animes but theres nothing appealing to watch. on a more positive note - Im 20% through downloading unicorn. Gonna poor myself some JD and watch me some mecha porn.
magi is really good. strong story, stands out from the crowd.
oh and i read fairy tail was cancelled
Shame that with the new season anime it's still mostly pre-airs and low-quality NicoNicoDouga streams LOL
I think over the last 10 years the anime scene has predominantly getting a lot worse and I dont think there are that many writers/animators etc etc who are actively pushing the ball forward on what makes a great anime.
Of course you will come across a few that are good. but used to watch a lot more anime 5-10years ago then i did now and thats not because Ive aged/grown older.
the last awesome series I probably watched was G.I.Ts or black lagoon or early Macross. there are a few Gundam series's which are great too.
at the moment, Gundam Unicorn strikes a real strong note for me and not because Im a hardcore gundam fan. Its got a great storyline, Great animation/character design, and the audio especially when it comes to the soundtracks are very well composed, thought of and chosen especially when it comes to the OP and ED songs. When its over I will probably even cry a tear or two, but there hasnt been anything in a while thats really gotten me balls deep in it.
Its sad such an awesome series is so short but yet has episodes that twice as long as normal anime episodes and i think thats partly why its so awesome as it has time to add more detail and tell more of the story then a regular 30min ep.
I will most likely import a perfect grade model kit of the unicorn when the final episode is out in the summer.
My MG 1/100 Unicorn Gundam is still untouched in its box.
I have 2 MG models and armoured core one that hasnt been touched for at least 5 years....
I also have an untouched Armored Core one, Aaliyah. Then a 1/144 Strike Freedom...
thats the exact same armored core I have lol
I have a Destiny Gundam - Extreme Blast Mode and a Lukas's Strike E + IWSP which is like a customised strike with a shit ton of addons
Watamote is getting an anime
Watching Koutora-San atm, didn't like the animation style at first but the story is really good which made me get used to it.
Recently finished Oreshura as well, good ol comedy romance with awesome animation.
Did you know that it's based on a 4-panel 'gag' manga?
lol nope, that's quite surprising considering the first episode was pretty sad and dark I hope the rest of the anime will steer that way with comedy on the side.
EDIT: Just finished the show, twas good but I didn't like the detective arc.. I was hoping there'd be an arc about Manabe instead since there wasn't much we knew about him.
There's actually not much uh...source material to begin with. The anime has more or less covered 75% of the manga chapters published.
And I've just watched a lot of episode 1s now, there was at least a bad one, a few meh ones, and a few good ones. Still have 4 to watch (and 2 to download).
Ok, I can't give a pass to this:
Seriously? No shading? I mean, rotoscoping isn't exactly the best animation technique for anime but if you half-ass it is worse.
my god that's horrible its creepy looking
Reminds me of "Event Horizon"
on an anime spree!
WATCH ALL THE ANIMES!
Apparently the director is doing it on purpose because he didn't want to direct the adaptation in the first place. If it was done right I wouldn't mind it but none of the lead characters resemble their manga counterpart (well Saiko looks ok, but Nakamura and Kasuga... ) The supporting cast is fine.
I hope they get it properly done in the next episodes. Changing leads might be hard at this point, I just hope they add some shading and improve the frame rates. Currently it looks like they filmed, took every 6th frame and traced it.
edit: After forcing me to watch it a couple times more I think I've warmed a little to the "style" (if rotoscoping can have that). I guess that the shock worn off.
Won't drop it since I'm curious as to how are they going to handle some of the risque scenes present in the manga.
meh, i didnt mind Aku no Hana's visuals, ill watch it regardless.
But Shingeki no Kyojin is my top watch for this season
It mine too seems its going to be a nice interesting one
