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.

Me neither. XD

Indeed. Just a recent example I noticed, the Disney movie Frozen would likely be "childish" compared to a Gundam series, but it's not childish nor immature, just more simplistic. Simplistic is not always bad.

By the way, did you know I'm actually watching a proper Gundam series again? I'm watching Turn A Gundam. I like it more than 00 (the only other Gundam I've tried to watch that isn't Build Fighters) so far!

Wait, that's an H Scene!?!?? All I read was, "In the VN, Yuichi imagines Mai and Sayuri as a yuri couple", but an H scene!?!?!? Fuck me, why!!?!??!?!

And as for HXH, going into spoilers,


ZettaiRyouiki | 07-20-14, 3:25 PM
I wish I knew, especially since even the manga tries to avoid showing Rito's butt by covering it with speech balloons, screams or Lala's ass xD. The worst part about the body swap, besides ruining Haruna's best buttshot, is that the original used it twice between 2 girls in both cases so there was no need to bring it back for such an awful thing, but Darkness is lazy and recycles too many TLR plots because. You might like the chest parts more, maybe, but pretty sure you don't like tentacles or femsub so I doubt that you'd like the manga that much more xD. I do agree the good things the manga had were ruined in the anime, starting by everything Mikan of course! And yet the new OVA will adapt TWO Mikan chapters because Xebec xD.

Right, and the age up thing was then poorly brought back in ViViD AND Einhart had to do the same even tho she's less loli at 13, thanks pals. Vita is love xD.

I agree on Kazumi, tho sadly there are quite a few series such as Onegai Teacher or even Accel World where the rival love interest is literally just there to pretend there is a love triangle, yet the "winner" is more obvious than Bowser being the final boss in a Mario game. Maybe Kazumi should be a butt demon and sit on Mini-Shana xD.

Not they were ever any good at it, but even Tari Tari was better than this. Good point with JC Staff. Speaking of male bashing Akame ga Kill is pretty bad with that too, at least the series is otherwise nice. Also that sounds awesome for both Yanagi and Sachi; too bad the series won't be that epic most likely, a shame xD.

EtherSword | 07-19-14, 5:50 AM
Yes, I love both of them. You know, my first impression of Little Busters in the first season, it didn't really feel like "Key" plot quality but the second season totally made up for that. I never could have imagined the first season was just a pretense to things to come. Now I'm just waiting for the rest of the extra episodes to air.

xm0123 | 07-18-14, 9:17 AM
If it's anything like BTB, then we can look forward to all sorts of derp. >_>

Some plots do work better when darker, but only some.

This animation is very basic, but I suppose it's a step up from most other VNs. XD Setsuna's voice is cute, even if she sounds like a stereotypical KDEG. Makoto doesn't appear to be as generous as a Key lead, though.

Oh yes, forced shipping. I just remembered something I read somewhere. Have you hard about the "Harmonians" or whatever for Harry Potter? And that they tried to sue JK Rowling, unsuccessfully? I suppose that's why you speak up against this sort of thing. XD

I know Yuichi would think Mai and Sayuri are meant to be! XD Otherwise, yeah, the anime handled Rin and Komari well.

I'll keep that in mind for Togashi.

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-18-14, 12:25 AM
I don't think the OVAs had that stupid censorship, but given one added Rito man-ass and another was the awful body swap episode they didn't need censorship to suck xD.

Right, Innocent is trying to be silly unlike ViViD that isn't silly enough and Force that tries to be 2deep4u. In that topic Vivio isn't my fav girl so don't worry about not being her fan, now Vita would be a topic of contention xD. Shana's issues were caused mainly by JC Staff tho, who should've introduced some of the S3 cast in S2 but thought that dragging on endlessly a boring jealousy arc would be better :/. Hey, ViViD is still going on and the movies are fairly recent, Nanoha is doing better than some franchises xD.

I dunno, they look a bit better but at the end you can still tell it's modern KyoAni. Honestly that Bonta-kun thing interests me more xD.

That it was, and figured you'd point out that about Yanagi. The fanservice sucked, big surprise xD. You summed it pretty well, too. That last sentence makes me want another epic time travel series like those three, maybe next year since 2015 was partially involved in BttF 2 and everything xD.

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-17-14, 2:24 PM
I suppose these things help, but none of them are mainstream and being a huge baby sadly is xD.

More like they censored what could have been good buttshots, but alas, who cares about female asses. To be fair Innocent points out how silly the resemblances are xD.

xm0123 | 07-17-14, 9:20 AM
WTF!@!??! That's girl's face is well drawn! Have our complaints finally been answered!? Wait, even if this new show looks better than something like Tamako Market, it could still suck.

I would disagree with you about Key and world building, but then I remembered that Rewrite's world setting contradicts itself on a regular basis, so nevermind. XD But yeah, a large component of LB is the relationship between Riki and Kyousuke. In the ending of the VN (Refrain, at least), Kyousuke even says, "Riki, you are my best friend."

True, a deconstruction isn't necessarily, "Like something older, except dark!" It really just means to take an established genre, take it apart like a clock, and see what makes it tick, hence the term deconstruction. I really ought to watch more DS9 someday, I liked the few episodes I have seen so far.

Wow, now I feel sorry for this new Setsuna, even though I know nothing about her. You think someone will redo the School Days anime, except make it more like its source material, and not have all the stupid "Nice Boat" shit?

I have seen people back on Fanfiction dot net express disapproval of ship wars because of what you just said, that Nanoha in canon just doesn't come across as someone who wants or needs a romantic partner. Also, while I know nothing of Vivio, I don't think Zettai would approve of you saying that about a loli. XD And yes, they mention Yuno, someone Nanoha never expressed interest in either.

The only Madoka pairing I see in canon is one-way Homura -> Madoka. All the others that aren't Yuri are implausible at best.

As for Rin and Komari, they had less yuri vibes in the VN. What you're seeing in the anime was altered slightly. The ribbon exchange was still in the VN, so make of that what you will.

Ah, Gon and Killua, true bros if ever there were some! And no, you won't get flack from me for saying that. XD

Akito_Kinomoto | 07-17-14, 8:01 AM
How's Aldnoah.Zero (mis)treating you so far? I saw a remark somewhere else along the lines of man Urobuchi's characters keep dying earlier and earlier...

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-17-14, 12:20 AM
I blame the influence of Western societies, the ones that aren't Brazil xD.

To be fair Blu-Ray did uncensor most things, the problem is it didn't uncensor everything and thus failed. If Yami went to Nanoha people would confuse her with Fate, both have great asses after all xD.

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-16-14, 1:51 PM
I agree, but not voicing bland traps or traps in general xD.

Fair enough, he does Arararagi from Monogatari. And yes, as I was telling Topaz Gundam-san might be the worst show of the year and that says something xD.

I blame Japan not getting big asses are better. Maybe that's why Nintendo is so terrible at online play, they aren't smart enough xD.

That it was, sadly Darkness was Dorkness. Then again we were warned when the first OVA decided to ADD Rito man-ass; showing his butt because the manga covered it with a speech bubble is a thing, but adding a scene of him alone bathing just to show his butt is plain hating your audience xD.

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-15-14, 7:28 AM
I concur, go the dommy Mahiru xD.

Traps aren't girls anyway, but somehow they are fine. Even if they have no breasts and they only care for breasts otherwise, brilliant logic at work here xD.

I hadn't noticed, but you're right. Poor Katsuyuki Konishi is once again forced to do a character that is the opposite of what he likes, why couldn't he do Yamato xD.

These aren't bad, but the butts are too small! The non-ecchi are fine tho xD.

I'll be fair and say Motto TLR had better fanservice than the original, but then Darkness ruined it. Well, one is busty, but they used minor girls that have big breasts while refusing to give the lolis the show is focused on any fanservice beyond episode 3, it was stupid xD.

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-14-14, 7:28 AM
I agree she does, and of course since Mahiru is awful MAL scores this series really high for SoL standards because MAL is like that xD.

That's pretty much, sadly. Of course liking traps is not gay, genius logic there xD. Miyabi is adorable, she was my fav from that show for a reason <3. That they did, though the DVD version is more To Love Ru Wetness because of the freaking water drops blocking bare assess xD.

I think some people just like complaining. Yeah, I know me saying that is hypocritical, like Miyuki from Mahouka calling Erika a brocom xD. Right, I think people hated Gundam AGE because the characters looked like kids. Now Gundam-san exists mostly so these people think "Hey, ZZ/Destiny/AGE weren't that bad" or something xD. Giant mecha aren't practical because you can blow an arm or a leg off, fantasy is dumb because a wizard can do it, slice of life needs to have a plot, and fanservice is obscene unless it's for fujoshi or manbabies; makes perfect sense. But yes, fuck "experts" indeed xD.

Nice IwASSaki, by the way <3. Eh, fanart shmanart, who cares xD.

I know, one of the things I always bore Topaz with is long shows become much more mamocentric as time goes on, which makes me ask for good fanservice shows NOT to have sequels as they'll just ruin the origina. There are exceptions like Ikkitousen on Queen's Blade, but then you have stuff like Ro-Kyu-Bu that are just awful; even Akamatsu fell on this ruining his eternal loli, but joke's on him as I'm not reading it xD.

ZettaiRyouiki | 07-12-14, 8:09 AM
I guess so xD.

Right, maybe. Yeah, it happens xD.

I know, just look at Working! There IS a meganekko, but indeed traps and older sisters are the thing xD.

Certainly <3. Of course, putting effort on ass is for fucking faggots, but for breasts, nothing is enough xD. Miyabi is from NakaImo, a show with unforgivable censorship in the TV version but otherwise pretty good. Of course it's not popular xD.

I agree with it being better, and "because PA Works" amuses me. Saori Hayami is always awesome xD.

Naturally, cow udders are despicable. If he wants support he should ask Topaz, he'll put Mami second I think xD.

Akito_Kinomoto | 07-11-14, 10:42 PM
Well since I've already got Zettai and xm's take on this, where do you put the Meguca gurls just in terms of appearance?

xm0123 | 07-11-14, 5:57 PM
Oh no! I forgot Shiori and Mai! They were some of the better characters too! And Mitsuki would be alright if BTB had better dialog.

Oh, Darkwish mentioned something like that. Well, uh, I still like The Phantom Troupe and Chimera Ants! And the dodgeball game!

True, you're not repeating racist epithets or thinking you're being clever by saying, "FIRST!" XD Key has annoyed me with Air, Angel Beats, and one aspect of After Story that you kind of brought up mentioning Ushio. (I don't feel like going into spoiler detail, but yeah) I'm not too familiar with DS9, and I haven't seen Tapestry, but the Wikipedia description sounds intriguing!

School Days!? What the flying fuck!?! Haruki might not be the most sensitive young soul, but you can't compare him with the SD anime's version of Makoto!

Oh, see, I haven't watched past A's, so I didn't know that about Nanoha and Fate. As for why their relationship, such as it is, feels artificial? I'm gonna guess bad writing. XD
