Critics and Connoisseurs

Club Description:

First and foremost, I would like to make it clear that this is not an elitist club. Our goal is to come up a list of highly recommended quality shows that are exemplary either within genre or universally. However, everyone has different standards when it comes to this, so I have made up a short list of basic requirements with the goal of ensuring maximum participation from our members.

The good part about Midori (I suppose I'm the single yes vote :p ) is that a ton of people ended up watching it :)

DerMond | Jul 21, 1:55 PM
Well, I finally finished the Kara no Kyoukai novels, and as I thought, they are infinitely superior to the movies; however good (or bad, your choice) they are, the films can only convey that much. Moreover, the true strenght of KnK lies in its verbose experimentations, taking concepts and developing them until they break, gathering what is left of them thereafter; the adaptation trims those and never lets the systems expand until the breaking point.

And the sixth movie is definitely a botch-up of the original chapter.

I was ready to make a comment about how Opus is Blue N again, then I noticed the number is green. Finally.

As with most of the cases, BakaBT.
