Yeah, I'll be very busy until the 7th of December, but until then, I'll have some pretty great animes to watch, right ? Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, FSN: UBW, Psycho-Pass 2, Parasyte, Gundam G Reconguista, Log Horizon 2... not so bad a season !

Work is toxic indeed ;)

Yo o/
It's a fairly strange season, if nothing else. A lot of shows with kind of the same weird premise but with different presentations.
And I guess my top 5 so far would have to be
  1. Log Horizon S2 - Despite DEEN
  2. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - I don't even know if I like it or not, I just look forward to each week's episode
  3. FSN - Because, hey, if nothing else at least it looks fabulous and gaudy

Yes, those are my top 5. They're only 3. If I had to name 2 more, I suppose I would have to say Madan no Ou to Vanadis, despite being the penultimate generic show ever, and then perhaps Shirobako, the first P.A. Works show in a long while that isn't crap.

Sorry for the late reply, I'm studying every day for my big Japanese test in December right now on top of my (busy) work, so I don't have much time, even for anime.

Reconguista is AWESOME so far. The best thing coming out of the Gundam franchise since Turn A, so 15 years now. Tomino's direction is PHENOMENAL, the art and music are breathtaking - very reminiscing of the 90's as you said, it wil just be a pleasure and treat to the eyes and ears every week to watch this series, even if there will be some less than stellar episodes at times, obviously. I'm so glad Tomino's having a final shot at his franchise !

Apart from that, I've been watching bits and pieces of first episodes of new animes this season when I had some time and we have some good stuff, mainly sequels and adaptations like Unlimited Blade Works, Build Fighters Try, Psycho Pass 2, Log Horizon 2, Kiseijuu... Among the "smaller" or less expected series, I really liked Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, and I guess I'll watch more of Akatsuki no Yona also. How about your findings ?
Oosran Sep 27, 2014 3:11 PM
Twelve got shot so I'm happy. Would've preferred if Lisa was shot first. Well, it definitely was not a bad show.

Yeah. But then I compare to other shows and for some reason it's often the case that the military comes across as a bunch of idiots who have nothing to do in the military. Of course, there would be exceptions where the military is portrayed as a rather competent group of people, but those are really in the minority.

Avoiding bullets is something pretty much anyone in any show (of course, only those that actually involve gunfights and stuff) can do these days though, so I don't think it's something that dooms the show. As for the armoured vehicle that can withstand a direct hit from an RPG, what I was thinking at that scene was actually not about the car, but more that "whoa, why do the Martians still have regular RPGs?" ( ¬‿¬)

And the negatives that you point out about the characters are actually the only negatives if you ask me, the rest being positive. (⌐‿⌐ ) But yeah, opinions. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

And in the end, Five (before she blew herself up T_T), Nine and Shibazaki were the only characters I even remotely liked in ZnT. Goes without saying that I thoroughly disliked Lisa all along and started disliking Twelve more and more the more he seemed to care for Lisa. Other than that, it's the OST that keeps me in the show.

But uh, let's see. My best shows thus far 2014 would be... I guess Silver Spoon S2 from Winter, No Game No Life, Mahouka (don't mind the LN-reader bias) and Knights of Sidonia from Spring and from Summer it'd be Aldnoah and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. I thought Barakamon might've ended up higher as it was really charming at first, but somewhere halfway through it didn't feel quite as good anymore.
Jacut Sep 23, 2014 6:56 PM
Hey, how are you ?

Why do you think Aldnoah turned into a ridiculous anime ? For me, it was not only the best/second best anime of the season, but also better than Zankyou no Terror overall, which didn't really "rise" above expectations (and don't get me wrong, I love it, but it's still far from what we could have expected from such a talented team).

Aldoah was similar in terms of characters and development to Gargantia or Fate/Zero (by the same director), and despite having some weird parts, remained consistent as far as the script and characters go, with some awesome developments at times. The ending to this first season was great too, as were the music and OP/ED.
Soulsfear Sep 21, 2014 12:14 PM
Np...hope you had nice one.
Oosran Sep 20, 2014 10:44 PM
And I didn't really feel there were many of those moments at all. Might've been a couple, but I think most of it felt quite legit in terms of plausibility. The only thing really would be how Inaho seems to have a bit too bright strategic mind. ( ¬‿¬)
But hey, that won't be a problem in the second half now that Slaine has slaine him. ( ¬‿¬) Seriously, I was not quite expecting the first cour to end like this, which is quite a feat. Usually it would be an either expected ending or something so random that it's just dumb, but this kind of left me with a wow-kind of feeling.
Oosran Sep 20, 2014 2:16 PM
I have 3 episodes of Tokyo Ghoul to watch before I'm done with it.

And I still genuinely enjoyed Aldnoah. ( ¬‿¬)
Soulsfear Sep 17, 2014 10:28 AM
Happy Birthday
Oosran Sep 15, 2014 4:25 AM
I personally really like Aldnoah. :<
And I haven't seen anything later than ep.7 of Zankyou no Terror. Too much to watch, too little time. щ(゚Д゚щ) I'm like, 40 episodes behind this season. orz
Oosran Aug 3, 2014 6:25 AM
Nope, none. Once the rain and wind died down around 9 I decided it wasn't worth going back to sleep since I'd ruin my sleep cycle. And if I'm not mistaken, you have more of these typhoons and stuff over there, don't you? We don't really get weather like this that often here, so it's always quite unexpected when a storm like this hits. :|

Oooh yeah, she scored Darker than Black as well. I'd kind of forgotten. Though I've also kind of forgotten what that OST sounded like. Oh well.
I think I've said this before, but I really don't mind that Sawano's works sound rather similar. My opinion is that more or less all the songs on his soundtracks are to some degree good, and then there's always like one or two real gems on each soundtrack which stand out. But uh, yeah, I guess stuff like this is very much up to personal preferences. ( ¬‿¬)

Yeah, I know what you mean. And I just did the math, so on average it would take around 14 minutes for information to travel from Earth to Mars and vice versa, assuming that it can be sent with the speed of light. I guess wormholes is a possibility though. But if we go back to the assumption that Slaine's consciousness was sent as information to Mars, which in the future will be at least theoretically possible (according to some scientists, Michio Kaku among others), then it is entirely possible to have a real-time conversation. That is, if that same consciousness could then be sent back. But uh, yeah. Maybe it'll get explained later. Or maybe not. It isn't really something that will break the show unless they exploit this unexplained phenomenon by using it for more plot advancement.
Anyway, yeah, Inaho's cool and all, but if he's just going to keep winning without breaking a sweat, it is going to get a bit annoying.
