Your Welcome, what you were saying about Gantz being about the ugly parts of human nature, with the bells and whistles being a sci fi story framed it really wel.

Lol I just had to look at your list and it's like I've found all the anime I need to watch without even searching

icanhazqnime | 07-15-14, 4:55 PM
Hey I just wanted to say: Love reading your comments as I finish the later Chapters of Gantz!

What do you think about the ending to Cowboy Bepop? It's nice that he has a past that haunts him, but did you really feel for the characters you didn't really get to know (Spike's girlfriend and Vicious). I did not and I felt "betrayed" that his past actually changed the ending of the anime. I know there was a main story and a side one, but the latter actually overtook the "reins" of the anime when I think it shouldn't. The past is the past and it should stay there. I really don't understand why Spike died and I can't accept it. I hope I have explained this adequately.

That was the most thoroughly dissected review of Samurai Champloo I've ever read. I thank you for giving me and everyone else the honor of reading it.

Yo nice MAL profile ^^

I just wanna tell you that I hate reading. In my opinion it's one of the most boring things ever. I can't express that enough. But your Legend of the Galactic Heroes review is probably one of the longest on the site and I really enjoyed it. It was really insightful and gave me enough info for the show. I don't know when I'll watch it, since a part of the story was spoiled for me, but your review was excellent. Two thumbs up.

Oh,i have already recommended It to three people and Will spread It in the future. Do the good work! I mean,your reviews.

donssama | 05-21-14, 3:22 AM
i seriously see u all over mal
but thanks for your neat reviews

afaquemusthafa | 05-21-14, 3:13 AM
hey,read your review of REAL(manga),i just had to say thank you. i came to agree with your opinion.it is inehikos best work. i am gonna ditch slam dunk from my favorites for real now. thank you for making me understand the matureness and seriousness of the manga. it is currently at on-hold at 3rd chapter. but i have high hopes of it getting my favorites after i read more of it.and real was what got me into basketball.also it made me understand the one needed the most is not physical but mental strength. once again,great review.

I think the humor stands out for two reasons:

*It is really crude and there's nothing I can say to defend it!

* Eden is mega serious, like 95% of the time. It makes the light hearted moments stand out even more. We wouldn't have been criticising so much if we saw the same thing in a romcom manga.

I do understand that Elijah at that age (he was just 17 at the time, I think) would probably be indulged in sexual jokes and perhaps Endo wanted to show that even in all doom and gloom, these people can still find petty ways to smile. It makes them look more human and makes us feel for them more during the bad times (which they face, a lot).
We shouldn't forget that this boy saw his mother almost brutally killed and his sister's head chopped off. These pointless humor moments just might be an attempt to shield his mind from those horrible memories.

So, yeah, Endo probably had the right thoughts but may just have wrongly executed them.

Definitely. Some shows, I realize that I love them far more then I did in my early 20's. Of course there's the odd one which isn't as good as I remember it being. Still, I think I'm going to start going through my list again and seeing how other shows fare.
I'll maybe see more of your reviews as I go, too.

Sangaz | 05-06-14, 12:34 PM
I have just re-watched Champloo for the first time since it original air date, and consequently read your review.

Just wanted to say that I found it brilliant. I am not very eloquent and found your review to describe everything I love about the show and more. I take my hat off to you sir.

I have another question to ask, do you think the drop of seinen manga quality perhaps may be due to the increasing focus and influx of the rapidly growing influence of the female audience? Ranging from fangirls to the insane fujioshi fanatic who seems to be the targeted audiences even in a lot of shonen anime/manga/video games alike which seem to abuse the bishonen and female eye candy sexual factor like a broken record.
