Remember11 was just something i haven't got around to yet. I'm like 90% of the way through I/O and its... something. I'm not sure if you've read it, and i don't want to say much but its probably one of the more ambitious VNs i've read in its execution. Its fairly polarizing though, there are certain developments you're either going to like or you're not, not to mention several nitpicky things that i don't really want to point out at this time. I currently have it a 9/10. I/O is written by the same person that did Remember 11, as well as Co-directed by Romeo Tanaka so, yee. Never 7 wasn't bad though, I found the majority of the heroines eventually likable, although its not nearly as good as Ever17 in execution. I probably wont read Rmember 11 for a little bit though, I/O is pretty mindfucky as it is so i think the next few VNs i pick up are going to be some easy to digest ones.

Summer is looking like one of the best seasons in the last few years. You have Rewrite, Planatarian, Orange, ReLIFE, Mob Psycho 100, Handa-kun, as well as several sequels. Rewrite looks alright, and i'm not really holding my breath that we're going to get a "VN" experience, rather i just hope we get something that doesn't spit on the source materials integrity. Here's to hoping we get an "Inoue" anime orginal route or something, if they only plan on doing a cour or something.

Right now i'm kind of just browsing around at the few options i have left for english translated VNs, lamenting that i don't know enough moon to go through anything raw.
FontSize72LOL Apr 23, 1:33 AM
So yeah, i just finished Tokyo Babel. It was pretty good if you're looking for a decent non-ero chuuni/action genre'd VN. At the very least, it was pretty interesting. It has an A+ voice cast for it being a VN, something i either forgot or didn't realize when i first looked at it. I'd say overall i'd give it an 8/10, maybe an 8.5 if i'm generous.

I mean i have a few gripes but i don't want to get into it too deeply just in case you get around to reading it but yeah, if you're still interested in VNs i thought i'd let you know that its atleast worth checking out.
FontSize72LOL Apr 15, 6:23 PM
Concrete Revolutio is something i still need to get around to finishing. It wasn't very well recieved on MAL but i honestly i think its VERY underrated. I guess people just cant be bothered watching anything unless the plot is spoon-fed to you anymore. If i can get the first season finished sometime comming up, I'll probably pick up season 2.

This season is pretty good, and next season looks even better. Its certainly a far cry from the last few seasons where we only got a few good shows, a couple decent ones, and the rest was garbage.

Hero Academia does look great, and is well animated but its on the bottom of my list because i'm not sold on the premise yet. Its possible that i'll grow to enjoy it, but my expectations for the show haven't climbed out of the 7 territory yet.
FontSize72LOL Apr 10, 10:56 PM
Well, after finally getting around to trying out a few of this seasons anime, i have a feeling Re:Zero will be AoTS for me (if it keeps doing what its doing that is). Don't get me wrong, i enjoy the JoJo franchise and all but pretty much anything with time travel components in it is going to get more of my attention. Plus not to mention Re:Zero breaks the current trend of most shows being 1 cour. But of the stuff i'm watching so far this is where i'd rank things:

Re:Zero > JoJo pt 4 > Sakamoto = Kiznaiver >> Kabaneri > Hero Academia

Is there anything in particular that you're really enjoying this season?
Teyuga Apr 2, 7:07 PM
Oh! I forgot to mention, did you hear they're making a 5th Natsume Yuujinchou season? I'm SOO excited. The fourth season was amazing (we finally got some backstory on Natsume. I cried a lot, especially during the last few episodes.) Oh and I just noticed my previous comment said Mahout, not Mahouka. Thanks autocorrect. Oh, and I also forgot to ask, what are you favorite VN? I don't know where to start :p
Teyuga Mar 31, 6:18 PM
MAHOUT MOVIE?! WHAT?! WHAT?! THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT THIS!! I LOVE Mahouka. I'm super excited about it. I can't wait till it comes out - I didn't think they'd release anything Mahouka - at least not for a long time. MADHOUSE is making a sequel? Aren't they notorious for never making sequels? I looked on Amazon but I couldn't even find the Japanese editions of Kingdom :/ weird. Gotta love Batoto.

Really? I only recently realized that there was licensed manga in English so I'm kinda new to that scene. But almost all the manga I've checked out are WAY behind the scanlations. One of the series I own, Noragami, is still like 15-20 chapters behind (each volume has 4 chapters), but once it catches up to the scanlations it'll get way ahead since they release monthly which I'm really happy about. I started reading some of the scanlations to around when Staz's dad came back into the story. By latest do you mean the one that came out in February?

Nope, I haven't seen it yet. I don't really know if it aired in my location. I prefer to watch movies once they come out on DVD since it gets so expensive. I'm probably going to watch Season 2 just to finish Psycho Pass. The first season was soooo good. It won't be the same without Shinya & the red-haired guy. They were my favorite characters -___-

That's probably a good idea. It airs in an anime season or two or three. Though I'm a bit nervous because Favaro isn't on the cover. I really hope he's in it. Mappa? I should really pay more attention to studios - I have no idea who does what (other than Production I.G. because they made a lot of my favorites) I heard that season 2 won't follow the manga at all...I'm really disappointed. And they won't make a season 3 since it costs so much to animate :( guess I'll start reading the manga soon after all.

Oh yeah! I heard about D.Gray-man getting a continuation. I'm planning on watching the first season before the new one airs (hopefully, if I have time) Really? Isn't FMA in the top 5 or something? I still have to watch FMA. Tbh, I still have to watch all the really popular stuff. I haven't seen Bleach, One Piece, FMA, Gintama (currently watching it though), Hunter x Hunter, etc. I have seen Naruto though. Yay Gil XD I'm glad there's character development cause he's my favorite. I also really like Break and Elliot.

Aww...it's really nice to see it animated and in color though. Guess I'll try to really enjoy the 2 seasons that are out. Didn't Madhouse do One Punch Man? For something so popular, I really hope they do a season 2. I love that series so much.

You're part of MAL Rewrite? Nice! Do you have to complete rewrite the synopsis (and know the plot to rewrite it) or do you make smaller adjustments to it to make it sound better? So the VN is good but you think the anime will suck? How come? Oh, I meant the website. I never really know a good place to find them. I've been wanting to read some of the popular VN lately. I'm also trying my first LN (Hai to Gensou no Grimgar. I REALLY liked the anime.)

The second season just ended and there's no third season in the nearby future q_q I've been spoiled with Daiya anime. Really? I like Furuya but definitely not my favorite. Miyuki's such a turd but I love the guy. I like the competition between Sawamura and Furuya. Furuya's pitching style reminds me of Shigeno Goro from Major, one of my favorite sports anime.

Defintley. I read some of Handa-kun. It was pretty good, but Barakamon is much better. I totally forget if you answered this, but have you seen Barakamon? I love that anime so much :D AND YES!! I DID!! The other day I was looking at all the upcoming anime and when I saw Haikyuu I freaked out. I'm SOOOOO excited for Ushiwaka (is that is name)? He's had little cameos but they've still never played. I can't wait to see his spikes. Mad-Dog had some crazy spikes but Ushiwaka's are going to be insane.

I really want to play F/SN, but I need to finish other things first. I started Grisaia and never continued, and I still haven't played IMHHW. I also backed the Muv-luv kickstarter, so I'm really looking forward to that once it's available. Isn't Melty Blood Type-Moon? I saw that that is getting a release on Steam, so maybe there's hope for Fate and Tsukihime in the future.

What did you think of Erased's ending? I thought it was anti-climatic, but the series as a whole was very good. It's right behind Shouwa Genroku for favorite series of winter 2016, with KonoSuba right behind it. I really need to watch Ajin, I probably will watch it before it ends up on Netflix lmao.

I'm so hyped for Ushio & Tora, I hope its highly rated as well. Are you gonna check out the new Macross? All of the series are canon (for the most part), so it needs no prior viewings. People just say to watch the original series or Do You Remember Love movie to get a grasp on the universe, and I plan on watching them eventually. I think it'll be a lot of fun, unless it ends up being disappointing.

No I haven't watched it yet, I really need to. I'm hoping Kizu gets subs soon cause I NEED to watch it. I just bought the novel, so I'll read that until then. It was good, just a little weak. Still worth the watch :) I guess Empire of Corpses is next, one of those Project Itoh movies. April 19th and 20th!
FontSize72LOL Mar 27, 8:43 AM
Well i finished it, was pretty much what i expected it to be. Honestly if the show had a double-length first episode with some of the cut early chapters and actually fleshed out the conclusion with another episode, it might have went a bit better. I think a gripe i have is with the overuse of the cliffhanger. I mean i like cliffhangers, but there isn't a need to have one practically every episode. Its a good way to string along your audience but at the same time, it loses its appeal when it gets overused.
FontSize72LOL Mar 25, 11:42 AM


So how about that Erased, mmmmmmmmmmmm.

I need to actually finish watching it but i've basically read the manga, and then read they deviated from it in the last few episodes, and kind of shit the bed in the execution. I might finish it up sometime today though. Depending on how much they shit the bed, I might drop it to an 8, but i still liked the series well enough.
akisame__ Mar 12, 7:11 AM
Oh I see. I might delve into that then because I was only reading fan translations because BL hadn't been licensed yet. If it's ahead of the fan translations, I might as well buy the official English version. Thanks for the heads up!
akisame__ Mar 10, 7:26 AM
Where are you reading Blood Lad? You're about 6 chapters ahead of all of the fan translations.
r0ykun Mar 5, 11:00 AM
I see, I probably won't end up playing it haha. I haven't played Grisaia in so long so I need to get back to that ASAP.

Apparently the anime is supposed to adapt the entire manga, so it will most likely be rushed (even though its still been pretty good, despite obvious rushing). Same! I think ERASED has the most cliffhangers I've seen in a series in a while. Nice, I've never heard of those so tell me how they are :) I miss watching Ajin but I think its definitely worth waiting for. I think it's getting the adaption I wish Tokyo Ghoul got.

I agree, and I just finished Ushio &Tora so I'm very excited about its return. Academia and Bungo Stray Dogs look very good, and I'm excited for Sakamoto desu ga? and Joker Game as well. All the anime originals look interesting, including Kiznaiver. I'm more wary of PA Work's original, since they've been disappointing me lately.

You've seen it twice already?? Damn, I'm so excited to see it now! I saw the Boy and the Beast yesterday and it was really cute, although I was expecting a little... more. I'm very happy Funi is bringing so many movies to us on the big screen :')
Teyuga Feb 26, 8:29 PM
When Haikyuu aired, I hadn't even heard of anime. I didn't start watching anime until the last 2 episodes of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, and I've been hooked ever since. I scoured Amazon (where I buy everything) and found Kingdom Season 1 and 2 but no manga :( Yeah that's what kills me. If it's been licensed, I'll buy the manga, but if it's not what can you do other than go the scanlation route...

I really loved the colors and the voices. I really love Osaka Ryouta's voice. Yeah I couldn't believe the anime ended where it did (and with only 10 episodes). The manga's only been released up till I think volume 7 or 9 and it's not on a regular releasing schedule unfortunately, probably because it's monthly. I noticed the price was really high then I realized the amount of pages each volume had. i wish more manga did that - I read through a volume in a couple of hours. I have to finish all the other series I have on my list before I start buying Blood Lad. I want to get Btooom, the rest of Shokugeki no Soma (I have up to volume 4 currently), finish Pandora Hearts, and Barakamon.

Nope, I haven't seen Psycho-Pass 2 yet. Kogami was my favorite but now he's gone q_q and the guy with the red hair but now he's dead -____- so i've been waiting to watch it but I'll probably watch it soon since the movie is coming out this month (and Kogami's in it!!)

The ending of SnB KILLED me. I felt better when they said "to be continued" but still. It's been a while. You a fan of Shingeki no Kyojin? The second season comes out soon XD The art in Pandora Heart in paperback looks cleaner than the anime but maybe that's just me. And geez Gil really changed. He looked like a sleepy little dork as a kid then turned into a badass. Love his hat by the way.

I'm willing to give it another try because of Hosoya Yoshimasa. I am in love with his voice. Why is there no chance for season 3? Did the anime not do well or something?

They're turning it into an anime? Maybe I'll check it out. Oh, where the heck do you read Visual Novels (I'm assuming VN stands for that) It's been really good lately. Shit's going down. And Sawamura is finally getting some action XD I really miss the third years though...a lot of my favorites were third years (Yuki (Hosoya Yoshimasa XD), Issashiki Jun (aka Spitz-senpai), Chris). Oh well. I still got Kuramochi. He's my favorite.

I haven't read the manga yet, but I've seen the anime. I would try the anime first then go back and read the manga. It's one of my absolute favorite anime. It's SO good. Ono Daisuke did a really good job (well, when doesn't he. Plus he's got a really sexy voice). So if the manga is like the anime, I'd give it a 10/10 (I've heard the anime is loyal to the manga, but I haven't been able to check yet)
r0ykun Feb 21, 8:25 PM
I still haven't heard of it, but that was a pretty good song. I'll have to get around to playing it some day :) I agree, and the direction itself is a 10/10. I still hope it's a tv series, a movie would be awesome but two cours like ef would be a gift from the gods!

At this rate, it'll end up being in the top 5 on the top anime list. Still don't think it'll dethrone Brotherhood, but it'll get close to it. God, it sure loves to end on a cliffhanger and leave me hanging every week, I love it. That's probably what I should've done but it's too late now. I put Utawarerumono on hold until I watch the first series cause I felt like that, so let's hope I actually end up watching it one day lol. I can't wait to play the Muv-Luv novels, the official English release needs to come faster! I feel the same way towards Ajin, but I put it on hole until I get good subs from Netflix, plus I wanna watch it in HD. Spring looks like th season of God-tier original works, I hope they actually end up being good.

On another note, is the Psycho-Pass movie showing near you? Cause it's showing in my town the day after my birthday and I'm pretty fucking stoked :')

Yeah I kinda got bored the fist few episodes and got sidetracked by other anime. And I recently started rewatching Doctor Who so I haven't watched much anime other than what's currently airing. That happened with me for some other anime. I watch a couple pilots then watch the series that my favorite pilot was from. I picked one over Haikyuu and now Haikyuu is tied with my favorite anime. If I like the anime, I usually love the manga (Tokyo Ghoul. Both are good on their own but the manga is much better) Do you know if Kingdom has been licensed in English? I love reading things in paperback.

Your favorite lists are great. I recently just watched Blood Lad, and I love it to death. Pyscho Pass blew me away and ever since I've been hooked on Psychological/Seinen anime. A Shingeki no Bahamut fan! Yes! I can't wait for the next season. I really loved the 2 main characters (Amira and Favaro) and the plot was great. I also just watched Pandora Hearts and it was great. I'm now buying the manga XD Does Chihayafuru get better? I wasn't really impressed with the 1st episode so I watched something else.

Who's the character in your profile picture by the way?
