I know Ducat disliked the end of the middle arc with Tsubasa, but I believe that might be because he read the manga; that part ends with a hint at another part of the manga that he didn't like, but I never noticed it myself, which I think is because I didn't read the manga. You'll have to let me know what you think, but I think you'll like it if you like it so far.

It slows down to a snail's pace after Anno leaves and Tsurumaki takes over, but that never really bothered me either, partly because I have no sense of pacing and partly because I still found Yukino interesting as a character. The real problem with that part of the show is that they start setting up some stuff Arima, but don't take it anywhere because it moves so slowly that the show ends before they can (though it's possible to infer what might happen).

Also, the final episode is literally photographs of storyboards with voice-over, and nothing happens in it. That's probably the worst thing, but again, it doesn't really bother me that the show kind of just trails off; after the first few arcs there isn't much left in the way of plot or specific, looming conflict, but I just like watching the characters and the show's more visually interesting parts. For me, the appeal of the later parts of the show is almost similar to Ojamajo Doremi, actually.

I liked the first parts of Kare Kano and it never lost me, so I want to say that you'll like the rest of it if you like it so far, but I have seen people say they felt "cheated" (which to me seems quite excessive). I understand that anyone who wants some kind of conclusion or climax will probably be dissatisfied, and all the clear lines of development end well before the show itself does.

More power to you i say glad you liked it, i would be lying if i said i recall alot of the specifics about the movie and i did feel the need to rewatch it when i was near the end of exodus cause the events of that movie became super relavant(the ova, dead aggressor, and heaven and earth all play massive roles in exodus) but i just wound up never finding the time before the series ended. I remember thinking the action was cool but for some reason the film didnt leave much an impression on me, I got a couple people into fafner and one of their reactions was more like your while the other was like mine. There are things i definetly thought were cool like how all the new pilots were all in dead aggressor even one of them (akira) was just a background character without a voice but was still in it, the mech fights were really cool especially after the no budget fights of the original, and the insert song by angela was pretty fucking great. That and im a sucker for shows that let me see character grow up with the show itselves which exodus lends itself well to since all of the original cast are adults and you see a pretty massive difference in maturity between how they used to be when they were 13 in the original.

I hope exodus works out well for you, I have 1 very specific issue with something that happens near the end that almost cost it the 9/10 i gave it but i ultimately decided that i loved everything else about it so much that i sort of let that one moment slide, as for that fanfer event thing, its probably best you do finish exodus before hearing it cause im almost certain as to it being a sequel and what that sequel will entrail and its unfortunately gonna be one of those sequels thats existence spoils the events of the prequels, of course this is all just inference over how the series ends but youll probably see what i mean when you get to the end. Also i should warn that fafner exodus really relies on a slow build up for a pay off type of pacing which personally i loved but its not till about 6 episodes in where the show diverges into 2 seperate casts that things really start picking up alot, the 2nd half is pretty much a rollercoaster from start to finish


also oh shit i never responded to you on dougram, i though i responded but i guess i didnt, dougram is definetly a very good series with some of the best uses of politics in a story ive seen, when its good its some phenomenal stuff but unfortunately there were a few big details that really brought it down mainly in terms of its action and serious pacing issues/filler in the 2nd act, basically it kind of winds up feeling aimless for a while in the middle section and the fights are REALLY boring, like there is pretty much only 1 type of mech they fight in the show and its almost always using ranged weaponry and it caused the fights to sort of blend together though the final act really kicks everything into full gear even the fights, the other big issue is the characters have some serious strong points especially the main character and especially the villain who is god tier, but unfortunately the actual cast you follow is either ok or annoying as hell which led to a midpoint snag. I might be complaining alot her but believe me while i have some faults that unfortunately robbed it of a 8/10 rating i do highly recommend it and see it as nothing short of underrated for what it attmepts and mostly achieves with some kinks here and there that hold it back.

Most Brain Powerd complains I've read were the basic Tomino complains, and for some reasons it's labeled as an EVA ripoff which only makes people dislike it more lol. Kind of makes no sense, considering that Evangelion was "inspired" by a lot of Tomino shows. Most similarities with Evangelion were kind of standard stuff in Tomino shows. I'd probably give it a 7, but gave it a higher score because of the good Yoko Kano OST.

Mazinger Z might be the first super robot show (with a pilot), but for a show like that, it really was ambitious and well written. Well, well written as never getting stale and repetitive, and villains always having interesting plans and tactics. Out of all episodes, maybe 5-6 were bad. Most other 70s mecha shows feel really dull and soulless compared to Mazinger for some reasons. It really knew how to keep things fresh during the entire run. It's a shame that Great Mazinger really dropped in quality compared to Mazinger Z. It lacks everything that made Mazinger great, and feels much more down to earth and plays it safe. Even Getter Robo was disappointing like that. I'm hoping that the Nagahama Robot Romance Trilogy doesn't disappoint, as I really want to see Combattler V and Voltes V (Daimos subs never ;_;). There must be other ambitious mecha shows between Mazinger and Gundam. Zambot 3 is the only show I can think of.

Reconguista in G is fucking bonkers

lmaaaao
i always thought the one on the cover was a girl

twas a damn guy

how bad is it compared to AGE though lol
zetsu_shoren Mar 15, 7:56 AM
damn fuckin hell son that is a big wall of text

Kamille is seriously annoying
I badly miss Amuro

Yeah that's the feel I get from ZZ; the main character is a fun guy. That's what I actually can't wait for.
So far, I still feel like I'd prefer the OG MS Gundam over it's sequel which is hailed as Tomino's masterpiece.

Wait, what do you mean by 0079? I know there's 0083 which is Stardust Memory. I'm watching Gundam according to the release dates rather than by storyline to simulate what it was like to have been someone who's been watching Gundam since the 70s.
zetsu_shoren Mar 13, 10:00 AM
yo nig

u liek ZZ more than Zeta?
how do you back that up, considering all i hear is hate for ZZ (haven't watched it yet, that's why)

Grisaia S1 and S2 + the S1 OVA. And then, my personal favorite, Platonic Hearts.

Hey man. Okay, to be completely honest, my score for GE is partially influenced by spite. See, that was supposed to be a manga that I read alongside Nid and Zeru but both of them quit at a certain point (Zeru got close to finishing it though.) But the frustration of finishing it on my own dragged it down a point. It's realistically a 4/10. It's mired with the traditional romance drama shounen cliches such as misunderstandings and harems. Truthfully, a lot of the manga is just painfully mediocre. But what really drags it down are the devices used to force drama in it. The backstories lead to ridiculous arcs like an ex kidnapping a girl. Also a rejection that almost leads to prostitution. These kids are like 16. Not even Asano's characters are that insane. The plot meanders and gets lost in the avalanche of frankly stupid circumstances that the manga piles on itself. It's kinda like if Nozoki Ana was tame and didn't have sex and was set in high school.

Pandora is a whole different matter tho. I swear, it's a roller coaster. It starts as a 5 because of the bad pacing and the overwrought dialogue but then comfortably settles as a 7 once some of the intrigue happens midway through the manga but then again it trips all over itself and lands smack back into 5 when all the intrigue mutates into an incredibly convoluted and mind-numbing mess. The ending had me wishing I never read it. It's just awful. However, there are things that it does right like some character drama and a couple good death scenes but all of that is dragged down by the unfathomable weight of the ending.

IM SORRY
I TOTALLY DIDNT SAW YOUR DATE OF BIRTHDAY LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO
Happy Very Late Birthday !
Esaur Jan 25, 8:34 PM
Thanks man, you also have a great taste in anime! Wew, School Days, I need to watch that too.

Alright, searching for pics were a very tough job for me cause you have to scroll all the way down to get the good one. Most of the pictures come from google image jfyi. I always wrote "insert anime" deviantart but you don't need to go through all the web, just go to the IMG then scroll down and pick the pictures you like.

If you want the same pics as me, I'll give the link right now
Akage no Anne, Aria, FMAB, Monogatari, Digimon Tamers.

The above is somewhat hard to find, the rest was quite easy exception for Ashita no Joe (really took me long enough). Hope that helps and happy belated birthday. ^^
Hias Jan 20, 6:42 PM
Happy birthday! You should get on skype sometime, I added you a while back haha. I'm shit with replying to comments so skype works better for me.
