When the pacing really is rushed, anyone can catch on. So I expect you to do so as well. I hope so too. I do think that it's just a small blip to further the plot. Hopefully, that's what it was. More than the pacing, I was bothered by the overblown drama. Assuming that it was a faithful adaptation from the manga, that would be a source material issue too.
ABHISHEKV Feb 9, 7:51 AM
KonoSuba is fun and all but that's it. It's by no means, a good show. The coming episodes will tell you as much. It's just a series to be enjoyed while watching. Nothing more. It's not even like OPM I don't think where there was some overarching plot of sorts. Ajin's enjoyable alright. I just wish it wasn't Polygon Pictures....but hey, at least the music's good. As for ratings, that's right. I probably need until the end of the season to decide. The only one that I have absolute unconditional confidence in is Shouwa Genroku. I do think that that series will be incredibly consistent.

Thank You :D

Lol, I see. I don't use English names at all these days in whatever conversation. It just seems odd to me if you get what I mean. Guess that's understandable since you type a lot in general. Yeah, that's how I felt when I watched episode 1. You're right there. That's exactly what I meant in my previous comment. I agree with you there. I wouldn't want it to be rushed as well therefore, every little detail matters. I would be happy if episode 5 was the worst episode in the series (in relative terms). Absolutely. It's no mean feat but I believe. I do hope they pull it off.

Yeah, it's already done so there's no point in crying over spilt milk. Well, yeah.....the only reason that I would ever read a manga of an anime adaptation would be if the anime was incomplete or a different version from the manga or if the anime is really really old (poor production) or if the manga has godly art. If not, then I see absolutely no reason to read the manga of a faithful and complete anime adaptation. There's no way that the manga can be better (99.99% of the time). We have interesting discussions regardless :D
ABHISHEKV Feb 9, 7:50 AM
Oh! yeah. It's really a rarity these days. Well, yeah, same here. Law College has been kind to me in general for the most part. Apart from 2 teachers in the I Semester, I've had good teachers so far. I had that feeling when I did my first degree. Attending College itself was useless then so I just studied on my own. Even if they're uninteresting, if they at least teach relevant material, it would have been worthwhile but some of them don't even do that.

Yeah. That's fair enough. I never asked you to go read it right now anyway. I have other works that I'd rather have you read.
kenshin_sama Feb 7, 11:01 PM
Oh, really? And here I thought college would be the bulk of it, lol. It's too bad you're still busy, but good to hear that you're settling into a career now. I'll be hearing back from my interviewer next Friday about whether I get a job or not. It's simple kitchen and line work for Panda Express, but they pay surprisingly well for fast food. Granted, it's still only $10 per hour, but it's a step forward for me at least. My therapist suggests that I take things slow when it comes to life changes. I'm hoping to be ready for college within a year.

You know, after you started talking about your work, I realized it's been almost 3 years since we first met, lol. Where does the time go? :P

It's a shame. It's not like pre-2008 where Japan was ripe with touching rom-coms for a range of tastes. But I guess that's to be expected, anime is always taking on a new form with every new generation. And I guess the age of rom-coms kinda ended in 2008. Although Engaged to the Unidentified was a rare exception to the rule. It felt rather reminiscent of a 2008 anime, but with a 2014 budget. And what gets me is that I never would have discovered it had I not picked it up randomly. Monologues actually don't bother me that much. It's only when they feel really out of place that I take issue with them. I probably won't have any problems enjoying Your Lie in April.

I'm with you on Hishiro, she's my favorite too. :3 It's likely to do with my bias for odd girls, and she plays the role rather well. I like how the manga portrays these characters in believable ways, while still keeping them interesting and affable. I find Hishiro's use of emoji to be absolutely adorable. :D I actually don't have a very strong opinion of An yet, but I do like her. I'm leaning a little more towards Kariu for her strong attitude towards her goals and competitiveness. It was interesting to see how she handled her emotional complexity during her bouts with Hishiro too. There was a nice, happy resolution between them that put a smile on face also (and gave me a few laughs from how awkward the whole thing was in general, lol). I think you're right, it does seem like Hishiro x Kaizaki will be canon. Kariu has a thing for Ohga, so it might be safe to assume she'll get paired with him. I wonder about An though. Well, we'll find out eventually. The premise of the story still has me kinda anxious to see how it ends.

Glad to know you're doing fine enough, despite the challenging conditions. It sounds tough, but I guess you'll just have to hang in there.

Oh, it's been quite enjoyable, really. Having up to 10 hours of film class a week is awesome, I must say. I've even been performing quite well so far in this semester. I'd say I have indeed been able to balance my work with leisure, as I've seen more than 80 films since 2016 began. : )
Soge_king999 Feb 6, 8:18 PM
I hope based Dashi-chan is surviving work. : )
mdz Feb 6, 6:28 PM
Yeah, I agree.
ryouko-san245 Feb 5, 4:35 PM
Thanks, I actually got interested in it ,because I was looking for an anime similar to K-On! and it also happened to be made by the same studio.
mdz Feb 5, 3:42 PM
Yeah, hopefully it turns out well.

On a tangent, in a previous message, I mentioned how the anime felt like a movie -- this is effective, in that it allows the audience to 'jump straight' into the world. But on the same note, I can't really see it maintaining that cinematic feel for long without it feeling tiresome. So, I don't know if 24 episodes is the best choice either (movies tend to be more emotionally-exhausting; the same goes for an anime like a movie).
mdz Feb 5, 2:49 PM
I see. I don't mind the name difference too much either; it's a marginal preference.

I do hope that the show ends up getting adapted well though.
ryouko-san245 Feb 5, 1:01 PM
Hey there, I was wondering if I can get your opinion on this anime since you've watched it and I'm interested in it: http://myanimelist.net/anime/27989/Hibike_Euphonium
ABHISHEKV Feb 5, 7:29 AM
Okay, back to the point about Boku Dake, episode 5 was slightly bad in relative terms. It did feel a bit rushed and the drama did feel a little overblown. It was so heavily plot based though. But yeah, I still believe that this was just a blip and it can maintain its high quality. It's impossible to maintain skyhigh standards every episode so this was kinda expected.
ABHISHEKV Feb 5, 6:56 AM
Nice. It's similar to my top 5, only difference being that Ajin makes it in place of KonoSuba. Obviously, the order can change and will only be finalized at the end of the season.

It's MILES ahead of the last season.

Btw, I'm blessed with good teachers this semester so I'm enjoying classes for a change (Both College and evening classes).
ABHISHEKV Feb 5, 6:55 AM
Yeah. Us people who like the sound of Japanese are just that way. ERASED is really a name that I don't like using but I get your point about it being easier to type. Of course it was. It was an excellent first episode imo. See, this is why I didn't want you to read the manga. I found the pacing to be absolutely on point. And it was that way for all 4 episodes. I don't think that there was a single misstep with regards to the pacing. The way this series is, I don't think that the pacing of the manga would suit the anime. It does slow down when it needs to and speed up when it needs to. The atmosphere, directing and music makes it all the more effective. Also, it WILL be a complete adaptation in one cour. As I already stated earlier, the manga will end in March and so will the anime. I can't speak for what they still haven't adapted but so far, it's done very little wrong. I wouldn't want to actually wait for a second season of this. I'm fine with the way it's going. If they keep up the good work, it's definitely going to succeed.

I just feel that how much ever you say that reading the manga won't affect you, it invariably will.
