Nooooooo, I should be the one apologizing for I have yet to reply to your previous comment. Rest assured though, I will reply to both your comments tomorrow or the day after. I've been busy myself.
PS:- Glad that you loved White Album 2 so much.
SalvatoreDoni | 02-15-14, 3:55 PM
Hahaha~ it's fine :-D
I haven't had much time with school, either~
Ah, I couldn't figure out how to get it to work XD
Hahaha~ I see :-D
I probably know what you mean~
Yeah, I agree~ With school, I only really watch the ongoing series~
I see~ I'll definitely check it out, then~!

Golden time is definitely one of the highlights of this last fall season, too bad it's being too much forgettable for me, I always need to sneak a peak in the last episode because I can't remember what happened. The Nana in Golden Time is probably the Nana from the series, although her personality is a bit rough, they are very similar.
What exactly let you bothered in episode 12? What happened in the first half or the second half of the episode?
Yeah, that's a really good point, but even though I think she should at least try to change her personality in that regard, which I think will be hard because she really is mentally unstable.
KLK finally is showing some focus, the wilderness is still present, but for me at least it looks like they're starting to get somewhere and moving the plot forward. I'm just really disappointed with KLK, I hope it gets a bit better from now on because for me it's just, I'd say good. Now, about that picture, it's like you said, even though we aren't so sure if the creator really mean that, it does make sense in a way, at last it's also a good explanation for all that ridiculous amount of fanservice in KLK.
Even if they said, "there are infinite possibilities" I'm not sure if they're talking about this kind of thing, but instead they're referring to the outcomes that different world lines can have. Also, I don't remember when they said this phrase and I don't know in which context this phrase was said, then, that's my conclusion on that.
I'm not that sure if it's a good idea to expect Makise to go through the same things Okabe did, we have one character that's traumatized in the series, we don't want another xD. However, Makise faced tough moments, but I think it wasn't even 1/10 of what Okabe had to go through.
I haven't thought about that perspective, but I can't say I agree with you because losing a real friend is one thing, another thing is when your friend is a ghost. I don't mean to say that just because she's a ghost she has less importance than a normal human friend, but the thing is that Araragi knew she was a ghost (or whatever they called her) and thus he must have known that she could disappear any day. Hachikuji was already supposed to be gone in the first season, so he should have taken that in mind, at least he would be more prepared if something of that sort happened.
I also thought of giving Monogatari a 10 at some point, but it needed something more for me to end up giving it a 10.
I also consider Kaiki as one of my favorite characters, even though he's not on my top 10. Moreover, there's one thing I didn't get that well, so, Kaiki was actually trying to save Hitagi back in those days and not screwing up with her family (because that was the only way to save her)? And also, did he just die at the end?
Episode 10 was almost entirely flashback indeed, which I don't complain because that sort of thing was needed and they actually did a pretty good job on that, first time I've ever seen something of that sort. The final episode, I actually thought they all died right after the accident and not because of the fire, except for Rin and Riki. I complained that much because I thought they would simply revive with some supernatural force or something like that. However, that doesn't exclude the fact that I'd prefer a lot more the ending with only Riki and Rin alive. By the way, I just remembered that I didn't see the driver of the bus being saved at that moment.
I didn't even reach the level of giving Refrain a 9, there were just a lot of moments and scenes that were just too much strange. One I recall is when Masato was going berserk in the school campus and then Riki and Rin somehow get Masato glued in that statue, you know, it was glued in his coat. That thing weighs easily 500kg, even if he can lift that, that statue would tear his coat off or something like that. Other than that is just the ending that I think could have been different, but I really don't blame Key for that.
Are you picking up any animes from this winter season? If you are, and there are some that you feel is really worth watching, please tell me because I pick the animes I feel worth watching before the season and I watch them based on the synopsis of the series, so there may be one I left behind because of that that is good.
Flume | 01-19-14, 1:59 AM
Ugh, yeah. Already picked up everything that looked interesting to me. Not sure if I'm going to be able to finish it all. When I first created this list I vowed to keep my dropped list clean. Too difficult now that I'm picking up heaps of shows every season and not finishing the ones from the last season. ;_;
It does look a lot like Saber and Gilgamesh haha. Definitely give Noragami a try. Pupa was laughably bad haha. I remember it was meant to air a few seasons back but got pushed back due to it being 'too gory'. Super Sonico had a bit of fanservice but no where near as much as I thought it would have (judging from the promotional art for the anime). I'll try to finish it but I wouldn't waste my time with it. You can definitely seen the same style and influence from Monogatari in Nisekoi except they toned it down a bit. Shaft and Shinbou are doing a great job so far with the first 2 episodes.
I'm looking for JJBA: Stardust Crusaders as well. I watched JJBA (2012) after it finished airing and before then I had absolutely no clue what Jojo's Bizarre Adventure was. I really should have watched it while it was airing, it's crazy how this was from the late 80's. I really need to watch the original fate/stay night before I watch the Ufotable remake. I went ahead and watched Fate/Zero before the prequel which I don't think I should have done. Nevertheless I'm excited for it.
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei looks good too, it looks well received here on MAL though I'm hearing mixed reception from elsewhere. It's going to be animated by Madhouse so even if it isn't too good at least the animation and art is nice to look at and it'll be entertaining in some way. I'm not sure why Psycho Pass got a sequel but I'm excited nonetheless. Also looking forward to Hitsugi no Chaika since it'll be handled by Bones and Soul Eater Not! since it's by Bones as well and plus I enjoyed the Soul Eater anime and manga. There's also a new Black Butler anime that was just announced. The first season was alright but I don't have the heart to watch the second season because it's non-canon and also since others say it's terrible.
I was going to read Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to sooner or later so I'm stoked to see it getting an adaption. I'd much rather see a thing animated rather than reading it imo. I just caught up to Akame ga Kill and it's now speculated to get an adaption which is exciting news. Hope a decent studio gets their hands on it like Madhouse or Bones or even I.G. It's not confirmed yet but the official announcement is in 3 days, so fingers crossed for an adaption.
ABHISHEKV | 01-17-14, 6:52 AM
Completed One Outs Manga.
NomenHicInserto | 01-15-14, 9:41 AM
Oh, that's awesome. I never get breaks like that. Since I'm home-schooled, my dad organizes all my studies and I supposed it's because it's too much of a pain for him to include winter (or any other) breaks. So, I normally just study without any breaks. Every now and then there's a public holiday, so my dad may give me the day off. But that's all. This is one reason why I always look forward to summer – I finally get a break from school (since I'll be finished with my grade by then).
Indeed. Laws are an important part of our society. People can be so nearsighted sometimes and only see things from their point of view. I know someone who bears a strong hatred for governments and pretty much everything they stand for. He makes it out like everything they do is evil and selfish, and he isn't willing to see it any other way. Though it's true that all governments are (most likely) corrupted, they have a very important role in this world.
I checked, and apparently I was just confused. It's probably because a friend of mine talked about Golden Time as if she completed it.
I normally don't mind series directed to (younger) males – in fact, many times, I prefer them over series directed to younger females. I just dislike fanservice – whether it's directed to males or females. Well, since you've convinced me, I'll be sure to check out TWGOK in the future.
I hope so, too. Another friend of mine also spoke highly of JoJo, so I probably will – at least to some extent.
Indeed. Although SSY's plot was good, I can't say the characters were. They weren't really noteworthy or anything, but being that the anime is plot-driven instead of character-driven, it's not a big deal.
Glad to hear S2 of the Monogatari series has a lot to offer. I look forward to it. ^^
Well, that's true, but the main reason it wasn't accepted was because of female-targeted fanservice. I was actually surprised at the reaction. I thought since erotic anime girls are so widely accepted, anime guys would be, too. I feel Free is a catalyst, though. I think in the future, they'll be more series like Free and it will be "normal" then.
Perhaps. I'm not that big a fan of comedy, so they may play a role. The emotional parts will probably suit my tastes more.
I do. Kubera is one of the best reads I've discovered. And although it's the first series I've given a 10 to, that was after a long time of reading, and it's mainly because of the plot and my enjoyment of the series. The beginning of Kubera really doesn't seem like much, but it really has a lot to offer if you're patient.
Oh, I see. That sounds nice. My family celebrates neither Christmas nor New Year's, so mine was pretty uneventful. On top of that, since I'm living in a Muslim country, I didn't even know I entered the new year. I was like, "Wait. It's past 12, so it's already 2014?" Hearing people counting down to the new year and shooting off fireworks is something I quite enjoy, so it's shame I can't experience that here. Obviously Christmas isn't celebrated here, but I saw a Santa doll and a Christmas tree in the mall, to my surprise. I really like December because of Christmas (my favorite holiday despite the fact that I can't celebrate it) and because it's the last month of the year. Two of my family members' birthdays are also in December, but that doesn't have anything to with my like for it.
By the way, I finished Higurashi Kai the other day. Once I started the second arc, I got hooked. Though the plot was good, I liked the first season more. I probably would've enjoyed Kai more if I didn't take such a long break between S1 and Kai, and between the first arc and the second. But despite that, I didn't really like how the series ended. The final arc didn't feel like Higurashi anymore to me. And how it had such a "good" ending left a bad taste it my mouth. (I wanted to see people dying and lots of bloodshed.)
Burakkumanba | 01-14-14, 3:33 AM
Chuunibyou Ren looks as awesome as the first season, KyoAni always delivers. For Shingeki, a sequel will probably happen eventually but I don't know if it's gonna be a "season 2". It might be a movie or OVAs. I'm dying to see what happens next but I have an issue with mangas, I don't read them, therefore I'm hesitating to start the Shingeki manga. It's not that I find them boring, it's just that I have this big anime schedule and I watch airing anime and at the same time finished anime, so if I add manga to my program my social and university life will die T_T... I have uni exams from Feb 7 - 28 so I try to study as much as I can but I try to keep up with anime.
But I see you have no trouble with manga, as you've read quite a lot. I also see you're reading the Shingeki manga. Is it good?Like, if a season 2 is made based on the continuation of the manga, would you say it could live up to the first season, or is it anti-climax?
ABHISHEKV | 01-13-14, 9:20 PM
Sorry. I've been so busy lately. Hardly found time for MAL. I'll reply to your comment in a few days for sure.
KerosCuriousity | 01-12-14, 11:58 AM
Well I don't mind long fights, I think growing up on DBZ does that but it was nice to not have fights dragging on tho yeah little repetitive. You had like random chapters where she's back in her time for like a weekend which were a little pointless I think.
I can't remember if there was Mankey around, but yeah nothing really that helpful laying around. Idk on this game app people post about shiny number 6 they've caught and it's like, damn they're not even special anymore great.
Idk half these otakus wouldn't know what a light or visual novel is. I mean at the same time I've always found 'oh if you haven't/only watched Naruto you're not and otaku' people annoying, but I'd rather not be lecture by fans when I genuinely know more. I'm also not going to give reems of abuse to people who call them japanese cartoons like a good amount seem to be okay with giving.
Idk compared to an actual game it seems it would be relatively easy but an analog stick of course will be a lot easier than a mouse or sensor pad.
I've heard the other 2 vn anime adaptation arent as good yet Steins:Gate seemed to be pretty damn good if you ask me. Obviously 3 route endings aren't going to be shown, and I did feel that Okabe wasn't warped enough (because in the Suza route he honestly becomes pretty warped). I'm not sure if it's Nakige or not, there's a word about one vowel difference which is the term for a vn that is basically about sexual gratification of the player. Either way tissues may be needed with some guys it seems.
animesthabomb | 01-12-14, 5:26 AM
The movie was good, but didn't match up to the series. It was a nice little add-on though :)
SalvatoreDoni | 01-12-14, 1:36 AM
Thanks, I'll tell you if I get it to work :-D
Really? I thought Katawa Shoujo was fairly long, I've played it for almost as long as I played Search ResultsOsananajimi wa Daitouryou :-)
Hahaha~ sounds good :-D
It's pure comedy
Hahaha~ I know what you mean :-D
_Okumura-Rin | 01-11-14, 9:22 PM
I've played 1-4 so far, and yeah it was pretty fun considering the fact I suck at that kind of genre, well basically because I play most likely rpg's.
Yeah I'll give the KHR manga a try after i'm done with the anime.
the varia arc is my fav arc, I mean the future arc is okay, but those sub arcs are a little annoying I mean I still enjoy it but I hope you get what I mean haha.
Well to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure I don't really know how to feel about it since I don't really like the Animation, I mean I saw quite a lot from it on tumblr so I really don't know even though it sounds good from what you said but yeah.
Yeah most animes cut off and don't continue even though there's quite a lot new material. I mean i'm still waiting for the Deadman Wonderland anime to continue since I finished the manga and it has been really good.
And back to Bleach, I heard a lot different opinions about how bad or good it is, the only thing that bothers me are the filler in the anime, because since Naruto I hate those, like yeah haha.
And I never heard of Yu Yu Hakusho till now but it does sound interessting so I'll give it a try.
Oh nice my friends and me once thought about watching he Girl Who Leapt Through Time but we switched to another movie since there were 2 of our favorite seiyuu's oh well I'm still curious for he Girl Who Leapt Through Time though.
Yeah you once suggest me the Fate series but I really haven't gotten along it since I always watch quite a lot when a new anime season begins so I barely watch stuff on my plan to watch list which bothers me from time to time but well someday. I didn't know it got a Visual novel tho' and it sounds like it's good.
I just played Dangan Ronpa and right now i'm playing DRAMAtical Murder which is a BL so yeah haha
I saw the first episode of the Second season from Chuunibyou too and it was nice, to be honest I started to watch the first season because of Jun and I was quite surprised how good the show actually is so I couldn't wait for S2 after I finished the first one!
Ah it must be terrible to have so much to do for school and having barely time to watch anime or read manga.
But you'll manage it somehow.:)
Supermacaquecool | 01-11-14, 9:05 PM
Hum…Your winter break sounds somewhat longer than I thought it was xd Aha, Fate is another one you've mentioned being quite good. I remember we already talked about that one XD Hadn't got my hands on the VN nor the anime(s) lol. Anyway, seems like you're having a nice time with it!
Yep, doodling is awesome. When I'm troubled or just too pissed off (bordering anxiety, anger block and whatnot), doodling is an awesome option to relax! If you're in a situation in which is absurd to be that upset, you can draw a ridiculous or grotesque face with such feeling and the ballon with the cause. The realization of how dumb that looks makes one come into senses.
On the other hand, when it's about something hurtful or akin (we're too sensitive about it as to laugh), you can always make a doodle of the current situation and some more of what you think would be good courses of action (the doodle don't need to be beautiful, even stick figures work as long as the action and emotion are clear). The power of clear and explicit visualization is great. One could also just get distracting with doodling, why not? And some options, depending on your imagination :p
About One piece:
Wow! That's awesome! In my case, my pockets are always full of stuff (including the iPod). For instance, if I'm going to draw, I put the pencil sharpener and the eraser in my jean's pockets and the pencils and cutter in the jacket's xD There are also my keys, some random sheets of paper and god knows what else XD
Oh, dear lord. I hate that kind of procedures. They're consume so much time! And it's so boring and tedious to do 'em. There's no way to avoid them tho U_U. I know the schedules the first semester at the university I want to go are horrible…better not to think about it. I guess my biggest problem is that I often feel demotivated and even indifferent regarding my goals. Such conditions don't help at all.
About Christmas: Meh, I actually would prefer to spend them normally. There's always so much dishes to wash at the end. Admittedly the food is delicious, but there isn't anyone that wasn't there in the year, so it's always the same ppl. I don't really get into the so called x-mas spirit xd Oh well. And nice, probably I'll get a job next summer as well.
Let me know if you find a hackers thingy! xD Farris mentioned the cyberpunk genre, but that's now what I'm looking for. I want to see Hackers like they are irl right now, nothing too futuristic. Did you know that there are a new kind of organized criminals? Hackers work as organizations now. They're extremely difficult to trace. They can send you an algorithm that make some encryption on your files! And they request a ransom to give you the password and have access to your files again. They kind of abduct your own computer, in a virtual sense. But that's not all they can do. There's this issue of the NSA spying as well. And not all hackers work in illegal stuff. I think there's a lot of potential for this stuff!!I remember I liked the first season of Digimon because of Koshiro. He was very knowledgeable on that field. And the movie Digimon: Our War Game! was great because it portrayed well just how much we depend on the right programming of our softwares and electronic stuff.
Oh, man! Exactly that (" I easily convince myself that it's better to keep expectations low to avoid disappointment than to look forward to something only for it not to be quite up to par"). I do have some goals regarding my routine of exercise, in the yoga I want to keep this current set of asanas till the end of the month, so I'm ready for the extended set. And with the the jogging, I'd like to reach 15 laps without dying xD
Right now I'm doing only 5, and it's being quite difficult. Can't wait to get used to the current amount of exercise… xD I've never done any of the sort. I was somewhat slim for the most of my life, and it wasn't until two years ago I started to have a more sedentary routine and thus started to gain some weight. It always amazes me what ppl is able to do motivated by the hormones produced by the being-in-love state or akin. I can't say I have ever been in love with anyone lol. Partly because such feeling has never come, and also because it wasn't until high school that I felt real close to my friends (it was just that before we never shared too much. I was pretty chill on that regard, since I enjoy a bit solitude. It's so calm and relaxing). If I think on the looks aspect…hm…well…it often draws me more the poses than the face or body itself hahaha
Well, I tried the stairs approach a little not too long ago, but I had the problem of having to walk 20 minutes before finding stairs to climb, so I prefer to do some jogging. But in that little while, I'd set an amount of time I had to walk up and down the stairs. One doesn't necessarily need to do the set in one row, just to make sure to complete it everyday. The set depends on how high or tiring the stairs are, plus our physical condition. Once we overcome the first pre-stablished number, we can increase the number or try doing a certain amount in a row, just to name a few alternatives.
About Tsuritama…I finished a couple of days ago. It was nice…I'm feeling a tad lazy since I plan to write you about Annarasumanara, I am a Hero and a few more words about Dorohedoro…why don't you point some things about it and then I reply? xD
Anyway, regarding my anime issue, I think is due this belief I spend more time watching it, when manga takes a lot less. I'm preoccupied by some matters I haven't attended, and the thought of using so much time on leisure freaks me out. Gotta confess, in the end I spend a lot of time on manga as well. The solution is simply to put myself a limit of time to anime/manga and respect it (thing that didn't happen today U_U Oh, well. I must persist…x_X)
Ok. Now a few words on Annarasumanara.
Hum. Don't know. I've seen a few gifs of FLCL and it seems like my cup of tea. Ridiculously hilarious! With Hoshi no samidare is important to let one's self be flow with it. You shouldn't expect nothing mind-blowing or too intense at the beginning, such expectations can ruin the experience (which almost happened to me! I was comparing it to the first volume of Sengoku Youko, which is one of my fav shonen and was made by the same author. Big mistake. Just enjoy the thing). And yep, while the plot might look simplistic (it actually kind of is), the author gave Hoshi no Samidare really great plot-twists.
And yay! Time for some more words on Dorohedoro ^_^
About I am a Hero: it reminds more the vibes of Himizu, a very grotesque, morbid and awfully hilarious seinen manga. But I remembered Himizu too while reading Punpun, so there might be some true behind that feeling xD I'm about to finish the second volume. Very good so far. Here a little summary I was writing (didn't finish it yet tho):
Hm. I wish I knew what else was about to be written.
Will check out your blog soon enough xd
ADsfdsgas This message is getting too long. After I resume my Jojo watching or reading, whatever coms first, I'll go into detail about it xD
Hum. My sister is quite curious about Steins Gate, so if we ever manage to finish psycho-pass (shame on me), we might check that one out next.
Ah…No. I do check OST before the anime itself xD That's how I found Mononoke in the first place (btw, Mononoke is a great watch).
I have heard quite a bit about Madoka, it being dark and such. Gotta see by myself.
Gah…dying. Another anime I'm curious about (KLK). Really, need to clear that anime list to watch anything else.
Maybe I can learn from you…how do you keep up with the hard work? I have such troubles even starting.
FMA still waits XD The list of manga I'll check this week is the following:
Dorohedoro (I'm re-reading this. I god, I'm liking it even more than the first time. The re-read value of this thing is even higher than the first-time experience).
Cheese in the trap (Finally. I'm on chapter 26)
One Piece (Who knows in which chapter I left, it was after Alabasta…xD)
Gintama (chapter 10)
Nineteen, Twenty-One (chapter 3)
Will tell you about YYH once I touch any of its formats Lol
Whew…such a large reply @_@ I'm really "talkative".
As usual, there must be some spelling errors along the way, hope you can still understand lol
animesthabomb | 01-10-14, 11:38 AM
Same here. Yup, the disks were worth the money. :)
Talk to you soon.
SalvatoreDoni | 01-10-14, 3:31 AM
I see, thanks :-)
Hahaha~ I agree :-D
I'll check those out ;-)
Hmm...In that case, I recommend you watch PaniPoni Dash :-D
It's a very funny parody anime :-D
Flume | 01-10-14, 2:05 AM
Not much, just went to a few places like Gisborne, Auckland and Hamilton
That's great to hear, I prefer shows that are short now a days. Even though I found the first series a bit average a 7/10 for me isn't bad at all. In fact, I really enjoyed it and if this is just as good or if not even better that would be fantastic. I'll definitely give it a try since I started clearing my currently watching list, now the only show that is has finished airing on there is Monogatari S2 so after I finish it that will be the next show.
2013 wasn't a very good year to be honest, you didn't really miss out on much. I didn't really enjoy Danganronpa, I thought it was a lazy game to anime adaption but it did get interesting in the last few episodes. Fate/kaleid was a surprise. I was skeptical about it since it was essentially a Magical Girl show with Ilya but despite having a slow start I found the 2nd half great. First season of Chuunibyou was great, I'm definitely going to watch the second season also.
So far I've picked up a few shows from this season. D-Frag had a good first episode, I'm a huge fan of comedies like this. Hamatora The Animation was interesting, it felt like a combination between K (K Project), Durarara and Darker than Black. Mahou Sensou seems like a typical high school boy meets girl = gets magical powers anime. Noragami is my favorite so far, reminds me of other BONES works like FMA and Soul Eater. Pupa and Super Sonico are offensively bad. ImoCho is terrible as well but this and Sakura Trick are my guilty pleasures of the season
There's still a few that haven't aired yet that I'm looking forward to. Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda seems interesting and Nisekoi because it would be a felony not to watch it since I have read the manga. It was pretty shocking to see that studios like JC Staff or maybe even KyoAni weren't in charge of Nisekoi but it was actually SHAFT. I'm excited to see SHAFT's rendition of Nisekoi since they have a pretty decent lineup.
ANITambulleta | 01-09-14, 11:10 PM
Yeah, so far I'm enjoying my Violin classes, and it's getting harder by the day...
I've never played visual novels, are they really good?
