About Donwun
I am pretty much a media junkie who loves good storytelling across all mediums not just anime.. which i do adore mind you... but maybe not as much as i used to...

I originally ran an anime podcast for about 3 years and since, that has morphed into a no-holds-barred
media commentary project on YouTube called PLANET TYRO


Looking for that infamous podcast i did with one of MAL's most hated reviewers: Roriconfan click below

The 1999 anime had some really good fluid animation during the Yorkshin arc, but it was overall not as smooth as 2011. I like the character designs more as well. They seemed more...mature. You would have to put them side by side to see what I mean. Anime shouldn't have to 100% be like the manga, that's boring. I think the extra hunter exam arc on the battleship added to the story, because they were all working together. In the next exam with the badges, they were now against each other which made things more intense.

LOGH did get a reanimation, but it was only for some scenes, and it look really out of place. Like the Star Wars Special Editions. There actually was going to be a dub but it went nowhere.

Basically every Inuyasha episode is the same so you could just watch season 1, and skip to the end and you would still get the same experience.

I wonder if a new season of Ranma ½ should be done. Would it have the charm and the same voice actors though?

The manga ending is much more satisfying than the anime one. Just look at the cover of the last volume! Doesn't that give away the ending somewhat? The anime has a different ending because the studio I think went bankrupt (kitty films I think?) So there was no studio that wanted to finsh the series, besides some OVAs. The OVAs are actually original stories that did not happen in the manga (besides the newest one from 2008) but they are pretty good anyway.

Inuyasha the anime ended because it caught up with the manga, and I think people were catching on that every episode is pretty much the same, so they get sick of it. Honestly, if someone skipped a few seasons to get to the Final Act I would not really care.

Even though I really enjoyed the 2011 anime, I felt that in many ways it was weaker than the first anime. The 1999 anime had a darker tone, atmosphere and more fleshed out character development. The Yorkshin arc was made better because of this. While I do like the new anime, it just makes me upset that people are now going to ignore the old one...

I am excited for the Dark Continent, but I think it will be a very long time before it becomes an anime, if at all. Let's hope that we don't have to get a third reboot right? :P

If they just release the subs on DVD I'm down for that as well! Same with LOGH.

Thank you very much! :D Did you ever read the Ranma 1/2 manga ending? It is more satisfying than the anime's.

I have a question.

What did you think of the election arc in Hunter x Hunter 2011? When you made your opinion and thoughts video about the series the anime had not reached that point yet.

I'm not quite sure if we will ever see the manga get a proper ending, but do you have any predictions for the Dark Continent arc? You said you are happy where the 2011 anime ended, but I'm just curious.

Alright, thank you dude! I will be sure to check it out!

I have a question you completed both the manga and anime of Kisejuu, are they the same thing as in story wise, any differences, or what, kinda curious, been debating either watching the anime first or read the manga first @~@.

You're welcome! It's always nice to meet others who love series such as Bebop, Berserk and NGE. Some of your reviews made me add some new series to my "Plan to Watch" list. Also, good job on your PLANET TYRO channel on YouTube. Cheers :)

Well thats because 9/10 of those people pretty much say thesame points when they review the show.

Have you noticed that the duckriders were not using their brain cells?

Oh wowie, first comment on my profile. Thanks for dropping by and leaving that!

I think it's actually pretty sad how people keep defending their relationship. There's now a thread that seems to be a direct response towards my review and saying that Kyoya isn't abusive, he's "just a jerk." I think what's unclear to some people is that you can care about someone and still be abusive.

I'll continue to watch the series because I actually really love Erika. I'm just not a fan of the themes of the series itself.

Thanks for the reply, I understand how Ranma is not really a deep series to analysis, with no real story arcs besides the Pantyhose Taro arcs. It's sadly not as well known as Dragonball or Sailor Moon because it never aired on Toonami due to obvious reasons. I was thinking that since you talked about Seinfeld and the Simpsons which are also comedies, with great characters and execution, why not Ranma? But Ranma 1/2 isn't even close to being as famous as those shows.

Anyway, i will keep spreading the word about your videos to others. Keep at it!

Hello, I'm just commenting to say that i really like your Youtube videos, and they deserve more views. I know you talk about things other than anime (TV shows and movies) But i was wondering have you ever done a Ranma 1/2 review or podcast? Its listed in your favorites and its a series i really enjoy as well.

Kosei | Jul 29, 2014 1:38 AM
Honestly, even if it was a long time ago, you was on point about one thin, it maybe a waste of "2 hours" meh.. "6" is being to nice I agree with the "4" and no problem, I will be watching out for your reviews, hopefully you know a better mecha anime with a better plot then zeorymer.

Kosei | Jul 28, 2014 11:04 AM
I think your review on zeorymer was a bit harsh man, just saying.. I just finished watching it, yeah the ending was less then stellar but still a "2" is just bad, I would give it a "6" but a "2" is just meh.
