Hello, I just started out here,but I've noticed we seem to have similar taste in anime. Maybe we can help each other out in the future.

Don't worry, I'm guilty of replying late as well. School hit me hard (plus, I pulled a rare anime-all-nighter).
I liked it, the only thing I didn't like was the switcheroo he pulled on his first love interest. To me, it seemed really mean. Besides that one complaint, it was really good.

Ah... Don't stress it. If I was as busy as you, I would try to relax every moment I could. Don't feel rushed or anything about replying (though I don't think you are).
Yeah, it's tiresome. But since I have no teachers or anything, I pretty much handle my own schoolwork. I pretty much don't give myself any homework. ^^; Still, home-schooling can be really annoying when I have to put in extra time to try to figure out some things on my own, since I have no teacher. I'm no longer in a grade where I can just teach myself using only the book. Unfortunately, my parents aren't doing anything about this and are still expecting good scores from me.
Well, politicians are top of the pyramid and hold great power. I find it extremely likely that most, if not all, governments are corrupted to some extent. Power corrupts, after all.
Do tell me your thoughts on Golden Time when you've completely watched it.
TWOGK has up to three seasons? Whoa. I won't be getting around to any time soon. I'm having internet problems, first of all, so I can pretty much download nothing. Secondly, I plan to first watch all the anime I haven't finished yet/put on hold before picking up new anime. (I'm not counting the unfinished anime I don't have on my computer, however.)
I see... I wonder how I'll like JoJo. It doesn't sound like my type of anime, but I may unexpectedly really enjoy it. That would be pleasantly surprising.
I tend to put plot above characters when it comes to series, but I really like it when both plot and characters are well written.
Free! is definitely not the worst anime out there. Its characters and plot may have not been great, but there are many anime out there like that.
Yes, the second half of Chuunibyou was worthwhile. It had a pretty predictable ending, in my opinion, but, overall, it wasn't a bad series. I came to enjoy quite a bit.
Glad to hear that. A friend of mine recently read up to the latest chapter of Kubera and was not disappointed. I hope that's the case with you as well.
Well, I didn't have any winter holidays, so I spent the days like I always did.
The Shion and Rena arcs were also my favorites. Anyway, in the future, I plan to rewatch Higurashi and I won't take such long breaks like I did this time. Speaking of Kai, I was also curious about the character list on Kai's MAL page, so I had a look at it. I was expecting to see Takano listed as a main character, therefore possibly spoiling the series a bit, but instead I saw Hanyuu, so I don't understand why you told me not to look at it. I was already aware of her existence since episode 1 (thanks to the preview of the next episode), but it's not like I would take a look at her character page because I know it'd hold spoilers. Naturally, I looked forward to the episode she'd make an appearance in. I actually thought she'd be Oyashiro-sama. ^^;
White Album 2? I have, actually. According to what to some friends tell me, I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I hear the romance is very well done, which is what I really like to see in romance stories. Now that even you give good feedback, I hope to watch it soon.
_Okumura-Rin | 02-18-14, 4:27 AM
And again you don't have to be sorry at all it's fine
As of today I beat Peace Walker so I basically played all Main ones now :3
I must say 4 was pretty nice but I actually really like 3
and dude I must say I am kinda obsessed with MGS now like wow haha.
Yeah the future arc was sometimes a little meh.
yep there were a few sub arcs but it wasn't that bad at all you saw how they grew stronger and such I actually kind of enjoyed it and I don't enjoy much filler haha
that which Bleach kinds of reminds me of Naruto?
Like the anime is in the middle of the war arc (I guess I am not familar with the manga) and I actually was kind of excited to see more fights and such but no a freaking filler again like ugh this is pretty terrible lol.
I basically will watch The Girl Who Leapt Through if I get the chance since I enjoy time travel as well,
and yeah I feel you, sometimes I want to watch a lot stuff but I don't really find the time for it on some days ugh
Sounds nice and yeah the Danganronpa game is way better than the anime and the character development is even better too, tbh I enjoyed the anime but most of the time it was pretty rushed which left me with a little disappointment :p
DRAMAtical Murder is good (Rated 18+ tho') and pretty interesting, I mean I just finished 2 character routes from like 5 but I gotta admit i'm lazy most of the time to play further haha oh yes No.6 is good, I remember when I started to watch it and was kind of bored but It got pretty interessting and I couldn't stop watching then. the ending actually left me in tears??? I dunno I get pretty emotional sometimes haha
Well Chuunibyou Ren is pretty good so far and I am kind of surprised we don't have a complete Episode's list so far, so I hope it will be longer than 12 Ep's, because that would be nice as fuck.
Yeah Yuuta's dark flame master moments are awesome and I Often think about Zero then, and Jun is a great voice actor actually like I am surprised how well he can voice female characters as Man lmao.
Yeah school is always quite terrible especially in the last year of it like a lot learning and such. Well a guy I know goes to college and he's got quite a lot freetime on his hands so I hope the best for you.!
Yeah I once heard of it but never really looked it up since I was just scrolling pass it, what exactly is it about? :P
Oh and did you ever watch Soul Eater?
I recently started to Rewatch it since I missed most episodes of it when I wasn't really into watching animes in Japanese and just watched it when it came on tv.
But yeah I'm actually pretty amazed by it.
KerosCuriousity | 02-17-14, 10:50 AM
To be honest I think I'd get writers block a lot and when you're weekly or fortnightly you may need that one week 'off'.
I don't feel they're special anymore, it's why I don't think I'd want to move my shinies from Pokemon White2 over. Pointless.
It amuses me. I mean I will get that it's just easier to say it's a Japanese cartoon or animation to people not in 'our world', unlike half the idiots who are probably proclaiming to be otakus. Weeboos are just annoying in general if we're being honest.
Well with DR I think I'd want the stick, something like Steins;Gate a stick would be pointless.
When I watch anything based on a VN or a game I do keep that in mind, and unless it's OVAs etc I'd expect one or two routes max to be shown. It's why games like Amnesia based on otome games tend to suck (because they try to show multiple routes and no conclusions). Well people who don't know the VN think it's great and VN players think it's great so it's certainly done well. I haven't watched the movie yet I know ahah. I need to get round to it at some point. I did a review on my app and to get the genres I came on here and looked at the score and I'll say I was impressed because although other exist it's the first 9 average I've seen.
It's crying in some form I guess...
I've heard of it, it's on Crunchyroll I think, but I don't really know much about it, I usually go through of the airing lists and I can't remember it grabbing me. It'll be one I'll see way into the future. I think I've only got like 2/3 '10's, one being Sprited Away and the other being Psycho Pass (but that's also probably because it's good and I loved it so much I ignored the flaws).
ABHISHEKV | 02-17-14, 6:26 AM
There....reply mission complete. Again, I apologize for the late reply.
ABHISHEKV | 02-17-14, 6:24 AM
Reply to Yesterday's Comment:-
The One Outs manga was definitely thrilling. It was good stuff. I wish that even that was adapted. I read everything that was translated including the introductory chapters. It was pretty much the same as the anime barring the missing arcs of course. I definitely suggest that you watch the anime. It's definitely not a bad thing. Ah! Kaiji, that's very different from One Outs. It starts slow for a couple of episodes but after that, it's one hell of a ride. Damn nice. I'm sure that you'll like it. It's different from Liar Game too in many ways. Your Birthday? When was that? I must have missed it. Wish You a Very Happy Birthday and Have a Fantastic Year Ahead. All the Best. Hope you complete Kaiji.
YOU'RE VERY WELCOME :D I am so glad that you enjoyed it as much as you did. Now that you've completed it, I'll post my thoughts on it:-
First off, check out this review written by one of my best friends:-
It basically covers all grounds.
These were my immediate thoughts after I completed it.
White Album 2:-
As for my favorite character, I really liked the trio but my favorite is without doubt Touma Kazusa and here's why:-
My Friend posted this and it was beautiful....he really did feel the exact same way that I did.
The music was simply beautiful of course. I loved all the insert songs too. My favorite song was "Twinkle Snow". It was used in episode 12. Episodes 10-13 were simply beautiful.
So great that you found another 10/10 after such a log time. It was my favorite from 2013 too followed by Chihayafuru 2.
There's no gripe because the directing was exquisite.
YOU'RE WELCOME MAN. :3 MAN
We definitely have the responsibility of spreading the word. I agree with more or less everything that you said. Now that's how you adapt a VN.
I responded to your F/SN post in the previous comment itself. Great to know that it was brilliant and I do hope that the anime follows suit. There's no reason why it shouldn't.
ABHISHEKV | 02-17-14, 4:33 AM
Well, first off, I'm extremely sorry for the really really really late reply that I'm giving you. I was busy but still, this is utterly inexcusable. First time that I've ever done something like this. I sincerely apologize.
Reply to your comment on 01-11-14:-
Well, I don't know how relevant all this is now that I'm replying so late....my break has also ended. So has yours so we're both back to studying while trying desperately to find some time for anime and manga.
Looks like you completed the entire VN and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope that the anime adaptation does indeed do something special because it'd be a shame if it doesn't live upto the source material or even Fate Zero for that matter. Lancer was hardly done any justice in the anime unfortunately. Rin is awesome and so is Archer. Agreed, the anime didn't really show anything else which was actually a shame. Great to know that UBW had so much more in the VN. Yeah, from your most recent comment, you seemed to have loved HF.
Absolutely. She really is endearing. Ah! well, Okarin, Kurisu and Mayuri were the standout characters though. That is true.
You really did change up your favorites quite a bit and so did I in fact. I did so just earlier today...a few hours ago. I know that feeling man. I have so much to choose from. I wanted to add Kenshin to my top 10 but I just couldn't remove anyone. I just couldn't. Well, he didn't really play a part in any of the great moments in my opinion barring maybe the Hachikuji one. That final scene with Kaiki definitely had meaning like you said but I wouldn't label that as a great moment. Well, that's sorta the same thing but different at the same time. Yeah, Kaiki more than Senjougahara because her screen time was awfully limited and she wasn't in full flow like her usual self or rather, she couldn't be. I can't see that being topped. THAT'S MY BIGGEST GRIPE. I DESPERATELY want another episode like Episode 12. Maybe....fingers crossed.
Yeah. I can't wait for it. I'm sure that it'll be brilliant. So much to look forward to this year.
That's my point exactly. Yeah....that's right. I want more Liar Game. DAMN.
Well, now you know EXACTLY WHY I have such high praise for it. Yeah, Closing Chapter and Coda True Kazusa have yet to be adapted. Only the Introductory Chapter got an adaptation so we can expect another season real soon. The BD sales have been doing well. YOU ENJOYED IT TO HELL :D I downloaded Zatch Bell. I'll consider reading it sometime in the future. Nope, I haven't heard about it. Well, I won't go near the anime. I'll only read the manga.
Yeah. That's totally understandable. Well, if there is, I'm watching it. I need to watch that whole series.
I assure you, although the material is the same, the experience is totally different. It's a brilliant adaptation by Madhouse and the directing is spectacular. Do watch it. You definitely should at least. Yeah, well, I'm sure that you'll like it. Really really sure. I read Pluto as well btw. Check my tag out. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is different but you know it's Urasawa at work. That's all I need. Yeah, that game was fantastic indeed. She sure got everyone on her side there. Yeah, ongoings are really painful. Even some completed ones lack translations. I'll read Billy Bat later.
Inconsistencies in pacing and sudden mood shifts....that's what I meant. Some events were not done justice. Like that episode with Rin and Riki running away together and such. Well, after witnessing WA2 for yourself, I hope you get what I was eluding to all along. Just a mere comparison should answer all your questions. Yeah, the Refrain VN most definitely would be better. But for WA2 IC, the anime was actually better. They don't lol. I love three of them a lot though. Steins; Gate, Higurashi and WA2. Yeah, the time factor is why I would never play VNs. That's correct. They're not for me. Agreed.
Well, you found yourself another 10/10. That's pretty good. 9s are great too. Well. Chuunibyou's latest episode was cute. :3
I'll reply to the other one in a bit.
ABHISHEKV | 02-16-14, 4:49 AM
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~!
yoshi9871 | 02-14-14, 6:09 AM
How goes it Miles?
sorry, I was stalking your profile again and saw those posts,all I wanted was to fit in.

How goes it Miles?
werewolfofusa | 01-20-14, 6:30 PM
I make it a rule to not drive near cars with southern license plates in the snow and ice. That's right I'm statesist!
felipekorbes | 01-20-14, 1:40 PM
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.
