About Archon_Wing
Just another random fan of anime passing the time with some good ones. I enjoy engaging, thoughtful anime, or simple heartwarming series, but I also don't mind well done silly comedies. I'm also approving of fanservice, but am quite the snob in that regard-- only the best may apply. :p

I tend to be a very huge moe fan so if you want to blame the demise of high art anime because of "Type B fan scum" like me you're free to rage, although I really don't care and find tears delicious.

My ratings are not an exact science so don't ask me why my numbers don't add up. They are all relative to each other. If I rate a show 8, it means that I like it better than a show I rated 7. Often times I have severe biases for anime that suit my whims and others against anime that just annoy me. But hey, life is unfair. :)

I am not pretentious enough to consider my reviews to be objective. A show could have perfect animation and a complex story (excel in many objective aspects), but if it bores the shit out of me, I'll still crap on it.

I'm of the strong opinion that any show or movie is more than the sum of the parts. I usually lead towards anime that produces exceptionally memorable moments even if it is lacking in other aspects.

For obvious reasons, movies and single episode OVAs are rated on a different set of standards-- I don't really think it's fair to compare a movie against a series.

I also am very quick to drop series I don't like, so the ratings for completed series will be skewed a bit to the high side. Usually, if I finish a series, there's some value of it to me. :D Shows I really hate I just don't bother adding.

Also don't take everything I say that seriously; I prefer to not have a srs bzness attitude when it comes to things like this. Raging over Japanese cartoons is pointless.

In general:
9-10------ One of a Kind, irreplaceable; They have caused a lasting impact on the way I see anime. May have flaws, but are generally ignorable because the goodness far outshines it. Typically, these are the shows that prevented me from ragequitting anime, because they showed me what great things you could achieve in this medium if you tried. In general, it must contain a very compelling cast so I could actually care about their story.

8------ Extremely good shows that have a presence in my mind but may have major flaws or other aspects that I really didn't like. Also frequently contains anime that I have no glaring criticism of, but didn't get me involved as much as it could. Regardless, I won't be denying they are undeniably fine things to watch.

7------ The baseline for recommendations; I can start calling these "good" as opposed to just having good aspects. These anime usually represent quality as a whole, and may have many flaws; but some of them can be overlooked. In general, represents a solid effort from the makers.

6------ Shows that I enjoyed, but generally have too many critical issues that prevent me from calling it good.Most completed anime will start at this since I have a tendency to drop shows very fast. They frequently have a number of redeeming qualities, but have glaring flaws that often dampen what's good about them. I'll recommend these to people who already have a vested interest in that show's genre.

5------- An average show, if nothing is better, watch it. Generally forgettable, but harmless-- worth a few lulz here and there.

4------- Generic and uninspired stuff; May actually be sometimes entertaining, but it's not worth it.
3------ Stay away. It's like having the screen constantly insult you. Who made this shit?
1-2-------- Avoid at all costs. Whoever responsible for this needs to hook up with a tentacle monster. The very polar opposite of anime-- seeing this makes me never want to watch an anime again.

I watched this show a while ago, but I think you should check out Kimikiss. It's the most soothing romance I've watched in a while, and except for Asuka and Yumi, development is really, really splendid. Storytelling and aesthetics are married here and exercise restraint, because dialog and interaction is the order of the day as the most insignificant things take importance for the cast. There's a few scenes where restraint is lost, but they're eclipsed by the restraint that's there. Don't expect anything new but just something well-done.

And except for two scenes, fanservice is focused on lips. Talk about class~

I'm also taking your...idiosyncrasies into account, which is also why I'm not gonna push Sakurasou any time soon. :P

xm0123 | 04-22-14, 8:54 AM
If boob grabs is their idea of a serious yuri relationship, then yeah, it is worse.

I shall indulge in your Miko spoilers, but that's only because I want people to know the truth. I don't think the part about fans and "pure" characters has any relevance, so I'm skipping that. (Although that annoys me too.)

Strawberry Panic? Okay, I'll avoid that. Himeko (That's the one voiced by Stephanie Sheh) did come across as a moeblob to me. Trashy smut, I like that description for some reason. Yeah, Chikane's impossibly perfect persona, and her behavior feels unnatural to me, so yeah, creepy. As for if she was a guy.....you must be doing your best to block memories of Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey. Some women actually like that; none I know personally, (thank you Mom, for having standards!) but again, I think it would be called out more, since hetero relations are somehow considered more "normal" in society.

And did you say rape? Yeah, I'm not a fan of that, if you couldn't tell. Sexual assault = NOT COOL! Also not a sign of true love.

Not Lelouch? But I already feel like Code Geass is to me what Guilty Crown is for you. Wait, I think I get it now; Chikane is supposed to be "perfect" yet can't even foresee enemy maneuvers like Lulu? I don't get it, but it sounds terrible.

Wait, this group, the one that makes doujins of demeaning women, they're named after those swordsman that finish off men doing seppuku that don't finish their suicide? So like that one scene in The Last Samurai.....except that's actually a good movie, and I'm trying to forget about this. Yeah, not sure if they really are the "creepy internet dweller" guy image, but I wouldn't be surprised if that were true. I've seen a number of creepy internet dweller guys in the Western world, and they never have anything nice to say about women. What a shame. XD

Never heard of TNK, but seeing as how they made the School Days anime, suddenly, everything falls into place! =_= I've heard about School Days the VN not being as trashy, so obviously, I should wary of this TNK. They sound worse than Deen. Oh yeah, I went there.

Speaking of trust and respect, that's what I meant by Touhou fanfics. You actually saw mutual trust and affection between the girls, like you could believe they love each other. You know, like all the healthy "normal" hetero relationships the mainstream has no problem showing off? Yare yare.

Yeah, I noticed Michelle Ruff, Stephanie Sheh, and Kirk Thornton in those clips, who are all too good for this. According to MAL, in Japanese, Ai Nonaka and Mamiko Noto are also in this travesty, again, too good for this shit.

TNK! No wonder I never knew their name! Even JC Staff anime look better than this! Looking back, it does seem Chikane embodies the "Depraved homosexual" trope more thanks to your rant, and now I wish that trope died. And avoid Shattered Angels, even though I've never heard of that as well, okay!

xm0123 | 04-21-14, 7:08 PM
Ah yes, it's like I told Zettai; outside of rare films like Brokeback Mountain, a serious same-sex relationship just does not happen outside of "Radical" literature here in America. So the same is true of Japan, too?

Yeah, I'm caught up alright. Now that I have a premium Crunchyroll account again, I really can watch the newest episode. And I will again tomorrow! XD Also, in that case, forget the titans, I'd rather see humanoid ants.

I don't remember you ranting about whatever Kannuzaki no Miko is, and while I've never seen Sci-Fi Debris, I've definitely heard of him before. So, first two episodes reviewed, huh? I guess Guilty Crown will have to wait another day, seeing as how that might break this mind.

Now, my thoughts. 1: OH MY GOD THIS IS UNBELIEVABLY STUPID! 2: Why is my favorite voice actress playing the "perfect" girl!? She deserves better than this! 3: The art and animation are crap. Granted, this doesn't bother me as much as the RETARDED MOTHERFUCKING CLICHES JESUS CHRIST, but I watched HXH in 1080 not too long ago, so I spoiled myself. XD

Misogyny, huh? Let's see......constant mention of boobs and boob grappling. (Damn you, mamocentricity) No male equivalent of that present. Nice double standard! Let's see, what else, homophobia.....uh, this didn't strike me as blatantly as...wait, the girl Michelle Ruff plays "cleanses" herself and feels guilty. (Seriously ladies, getting high off of romance and/or sex hormones does not automatically make you a slut. Your life will be easier when you know this.) Wait, getting back to boob action, she fondles the other girl....I get it! It's that slippery slope fallacy! "Same sex attraction is already heinous! Gays would more likely do other bad things than 'normal' people!" But in all honesty, I was more bothered by how every negative anime stereotype is at play here than the prejudice. Oh I'm still mad about the double standards, but unless if I missed something, this isn't as bad as a few other works I could mention.

Then again, is it sad that I've read Touhou fanfics that had more convincing yuri than this? 3 out of 10, huh? I don't think I could watch this whole thing.

ZettaiRyouiki | 04-21-14, 9:18 AM
I blame Japan and its many similar names xD.

To be fair the second season did give Yozora some nice moments, not just in fanservice but in general too. But yeah, like most shows that aren't Love Live the moment it tried to cater to fans it went down the crapper xD.

I doubt a doujinshi will come out, but a fanart is plausible. Quality optional xD.

That's Yamato from Kantai Collection, go her big "poop" as in the back of a ship! Hatsuharu would make more sense due to her name, but alas xD.

I meant their Nyarlko and Prisma Illya OVAs, they had good fanservice and were nice otherwise, especially the latter. Best show this season is JoJo part 3 of course xD.

Right, go ask Topaz as he brought it up in his latest blog! Indeed, most people don't even get fanservice can be good or bad xD.

I concur, even her Pretty Cure character is better! And hey, Lala Stalin is cool, just because Darkness hates her doesn't mean she's bad xD.

Akito_Kinomoto | 04-15-14, 12:13 AM

ZettaiRyouiki | 04-10-14, 1:00 AM
I see, my bad as their names are similar xD.

Sena was shown many times to be a less than likable person tho. People are just dense and don't listen because her chest drowns their words to them xD.

I saw that, poor Saya being in a loop within a loop! Right, about time they got their act together, but then again so far 2014 OVAs are good, so good even Silver Link and XEBEC did good ones xD.

Resurrected | 04-01-14, 9:18 PM
What do you get when an unstoppable Gary Stu meets an immovable Mary Sue?


I also think you might like Kimikiss. It's really graceful and all that other happy shit.

ZettaiRyouiki | 04-01-14, 7:20 AM
I mean that as a show that had a fanservice focus and also had a serious well-done plot and characters and stuff, not one that had great fanservice, sorry if it came wrong and unfair towards fanservice shows xD. At least Kazusa isn't exactly flat, but Sora and Akira are rather unforgivable. And yes, you can ask Topaz about my RAGE on how IS official art keeps naysaying Cecilia's English butt when the novel and fans agree it's big and wondrous xD.

Hey, Kozue is cute. Maybe they just really like having even heroines xD.

I agree, but that was partially A-1 being one-ass. And yes, I'm impressed even though Sena has still the worst fanboys xD.

Go awesome challengers! Hey, nopan is still better than no-ass xD.

Resurrected | 03-21-14, 2:33 PM
A singer after my own heart. I wonder if she'll go the Cristina Vee route and take up voice acting.

ZettaiRyouiki | 03-20-14, 4:10 PM
I know, if only more fanservice shows had bouncy butt girls things would be far better for all of us xD.

Right, kinda unfair to blame JUST imouto series when precisely one of the best fanservice shows in recent years was Yosuga no Sora. OreImo wasn't ruined because it was about incest tho, it was ruined because it was poorly written to force a bad couple to win, but that Love Hina does it too and precisely not letting the better imouto win xD. Kirino is kinda tsundere I think, just too heavy on tsun. Kinda like Chitoge this season, can't wait until the yandere-ish girl appears xD.

I agree, go that assy girl <3. And coats xD.

ZettaiRyouiki | 03-20-14, 8:40 AM
I agree xD.

Being there for the service isn't bad as long it's done well. Sadly the bottoms don't detach, but most girls have jiggly asses xD.

I wish, but it still beats most of this shoddy season. Nice avatar xD. Also boo at the Animesuki people acting like harem shows with "imouto" in the title are crap! Harem shows can be crap without involving imoutos, thank you very much xD.

Resurrected | 03-15-14, 10:15 PM
This is clearly the worst picture ever. Homu on bottom is clearly OOC.

ZettaiRyouiki | 03-15-14, 3:31 AM
I don't mind, and she's not short either xD.

They don't really swim tho, is just what they wear on Frantic mode. Oh, and if they lose their school uniform from getting hit often xD.

I know, or worse, bad official series. Seriously, they turned Yami wrongly thinking Rito is a pervert into a plot point, and yes, you really have to think she's right xD.

Definitely. If only the studio sucked less xD.

I meant it more since they were the only ones with a couple buttshots, especially of Sanae my fav girl, and not too many chest scenes. Plus every other fanservice show is awful what with extreme mamocentrism, unfair censorship, manass and so on xD.

Right, that was always rather ridiculous, be it dumb yuri fans or dumb het fans or dumb femsub fans or whatever. Or like watching a fighting shounen show and complaining about the lack of romance, happens to Dragon Ball a lot xD.

xm0123 | 03-09-14, 9:04 AM
Before I respond to your epic rant, I'll cover your other points first. As in identifying a Xebec work is easy. IG at least tries to look good. Xebec almost never bothers. Note Pandora Hearts for instance. The anime was done by Xebec in 2009......and looks more like something made in 2001. I kid you not. >_>

Yeah, those fuckin' Chimera Ants are something else! One of the top reviews for HXH on this site even says their presence is sort of like the Titans in Attack On Titan. (Is AOT at least as good as HXH?) And I definitely agree about Hisoka. Never thought anyone would take the phrase "bloodlust" literally, but he has, and everything that entails with it. XD

Moe? I'd say more like bromance. XD And I shall continue to ignore those debates, for it reminds me too much of the FMA debates.

Hmm, Blue Drop....I'll remind you that I live in a very homophobic community, and as such, I've heard every anti-gay argument imaginable, including that one. Also note, I knew a few gay people in real life, and one of them was a trusted friend of mine in high school, so already, I can tell this author to eat shit and die.

And penis mightier than the sword? Seriously, why is this even a thing? I mean, aside from some great jokes from a favorite sitcom of mine (namely, one of the guys in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia brags about going erect, flaccid, and back like it's an accomplishment) why is being able to "get it up" considered so masculine?

And speaking of sexism, I mentioned this to Zettai, how is it that Japan, as a whole, is not as sexually progressive as America, and yet, most of my favorite fictional female characters are from Japanese authors? Do guys like Nasu and Ryukishi secretly desire more female power and presence, but the only way they can express this is by creating some of the best female characters of recent memory? I still don't know how to reconcile this, but I do know this; when a Japanese work gets sexist, it gets reeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaalllly sexist. Yare yare.

First of all, you can't convert a straight women into a lesbian, and vice versa. Also, all the hetero men I know (not in prison) would not resort to sex with other men, even in this situation. I know I wouldn't. XD Also, I resent the "men are horndogs and must always be fucking!" stereotype.

Your next paragraph describes something that I can't even comprehend, so I'll try not to. Moving on, oh! So it's not just Fox networks that act like bisexuality doesn't exist! >_< Also, I don't wanna address the genderswap issue, that's something I'm not into.

Yeah, I can tell you right now, this isn't amusing like Manos, or a guy trying to kill you with a forklift, or anything like that. It's just hate speech disguised as a comic book series. I hope Blue Drop falls into obscurity, for this is....wait, you mentioned other things to Zettai. "rape" WHAT!? "having breasts as the main way to determine someone's beauty" WHAT!? Okay, fuck this shit. Fuck all this prejudicial hatred.

ZettaiRyouiki | 03-09-14, 3:18 AM
I do agree her glare was awesome, go non-tall TDBs like her xD.

Bunny costumes are swimsuits in the game for some reason. I do like sukumizu, but the better ones are really two pieces as the bottom is detachable xD.

I noticed, unless you're a really good studio fanservice series are better when there isn't nudity than when there is. Like Darkness proves, giving artists more freemdom rarely ends well xD.

To be fair iMocho can be serious and do things decently once in a while, and if nothing else the imouto is actually likable unlike Kirino. Oh yes, the dumb long titles; I don't mind long titles that are meant to sound cool, like "Legend of the Love Angel: Wedding Peach" and similar, but the ones that just have the lead describe the show are bad xD. Except SekaTsuyo. Also that's an awesome image, I guess Project No. 9 is just a really bad studio like Xebec and Silver Link xD.

I do agree with that, that's why even if Wonder Momo was boring I still don't really hate it, unlike Nourin or all the other crappy shows running in this season. Come on, the best fanservice episode this week came from CHUUNIETC, that's pretty sad xD.

Sounds really, really, really bad to put it mildly. Actually I wouldn't mind knowing there is such a terrible manga out there, I could say "Hey, at least Darkness is better, it had that chapter where Rito-Hamster gets trapped between Yami's buttcheeks" or some other dumb joke xD. And yeah, if you haven't noticed my blogs get a bit rant-y when a girl from a dumb show gets covered, like the latest one. The doujinshi thing never made to me much sense, why selling a doujinshi to fans of X if you're going to tell them X is awful and guy-on-charge vaginal heterosexual sex is best, are you trying to get adepts to the School of Genericness or what xD.

I know, though to be fair there are dumb yuri fans too. I'm not sure if I told you but the new Cure season introduced a male childhood friend of the Pink Cure and a guy in the forums had a fit because he didn't want any male friends to get in the middle of the girls and other nonsense; go home pal, you're drunk xD.
