Replied to your post in the Japan's weekly sales thread

I am just puzzled how so many Japanese people and anime fans in general do not care about quality at all.

You should give up on argue with a few people in the news now it is clear a lot of anime fans do not care for quality at all.

Oh yeah, Roy! He's cool. It's kind of a shame that he spends so much of the middle of the series on the sidelines. One thing that bothered me about the show was his fight scenes though; I thought that was handled better in the 2003 anime. His power just doesn't allow for very exciting or creative fight scenes, I guess; the stellar animation basically made those fights.

I can't really say which I preferred, tbh. I watched the original about 7 years ago? Something like that? I do remember disliking the ending as well! Especially the horrid movie.

From what I remember though, I very much liked the 2003 version's beginning more than Brotherhood's. When they covered the same material, I thought the 2003 version was better-directed. Especially during the more poignant and affecting scenes, i.e.
I was kinda iffy towards Brotherhood's pacing, actually? Something important happened each episode, which is good, but too often, I thought it was too slow and plodding sometimes. :

The emo kid inside me will never let me get over those silly feely animu tear jerkers. :( I'll never grow old.
I've definitely been super lax with ratings since I returned to cartoons so p much everything I finished in the last year or two has been 7+. (I know, i'm such a pleb)

first thing off the top of my head to rec is Angel's Egg. It's pretty awesome seeing where mamoru oshii got his start and I'd love to hear your thoughts on it whether you like it or not. I'd tell you about it but that would ruin errthing

That's a relief. I was always planning on reading the manga after the anime, but I just didn't know if I was getting basically the same thing. Seems like I got a lot to look forward to. Also, looks like the real meat of the anime is in the second half. More reason to finish it soon then. Thanks man!

compat <80. :sadface:

It had some good points to it though, I thought. So I'd say that yeah it's one of the better shounens out there, especially amongst the modern ones. The characters were pretty great; I kinda liked everyone. Who were your favorites? I was pretty fond of Alphonse, May, Scar, and OLIVIER (she's so awesome)

Hey BigSimo! I gotta ask, how much does Planetes manga differ from the anime? I'm still watching the anime (eight episodes in) and need to know if there's something I'll get with reading the manga. I'd kinda hate if I read the manga and basically get everything I watched (recently happened with me and Honey & Clover.)

Excelsior | 07-13-14, 3:31 PM
I didn't really like Fullmetal Alchemist :(

lpf | 07-10-14, 6:21 AM
No problem, the writing ended up being from my hand but the ideas for the character section were really yours. I'm also very satisfied with the review!

lpf | 07-03-14, 7:55 PM
Look at the mopad and tell me if you're ok with what I went ahead and wrote and what you would add or change

Thanks man!!

Excelsior | 06-30-14, 3:10 PM
Hey man, thanks. I'll keep that in mind; I wasn't too impressed with the first 10 episodes, but I'll keep at it. I moved this from my dropped list so I really want to like it. I want to know more about these characters and I want to see some great, fun fight scenes, and so on.

By the way, I saw your post on RYM about Konnichiwa Anne-- obviously I'm not qualified to talk about it because I haven't seen the prequel, but you could ask RMNDolphy about it since he's seen some of the prequel and he loves Anne. From what I've seen of the 1979 anime, I think Anne's actions and motivations make perfect sense without knowledge of the prequel (she also briefly describes her past experiences in a 5-10 minute scene around episode 4 or 5). Also, the prequel anime was adapted by a novel not written by Anne of Green Gable's actual author and it was written after the Anne series was finished, I think.

Saw your post in the Mushishi section and thought I'd share my thoughts here.

I think the reason why people feel as though something's missing is due to expectations. I finished Mushishi fairly recently and not while it was airing so many years ago. Watching this season made everything feel continuous and therein lies the problem.

It's the SAME Mushishi with minor improvements here and there as far as production values go. Let me ask you this, how many episodes of Mushishi would it take until you start craving a coherent plot or want to see Ginko develop as a character or until the novelty it had begins to fade?

Don't get me wrong though, I think Mushishi is great but I could understand why some people find it lacking even though it's the same formula and content. I don't think it could ever outdo the first season but it certainly can't be worse than it. Hype and expectations probably killed it for some.
