The completed to dropped ratio suggests that many didn't even give it a chance. They probably watched the first episode and thought it looked strange. Hopefully the people in Japan were more receptive to it since Ghibli could be on to something great here. Mattis's eyes and Birk's big grin are what come to mind first. I love the way Ronja's relationship with Birk has evolved. With the snow and now the underground passage. Awesome stuff. The voice cast has done very little of note, but I'm really liking all of them a lot. It's easily gonna be one of the best shows I watch this year.

I barely remember anything about Earthsea other than some character designs. So I'm with you on it being one of the least memorable. That really does seem like a difficult first entry. But now he's really come into his own. I'd be confident about seeing his name attached to something in the future. Preferably with this composer since they've got a good thing going. I do tend to prefer the more easy going types for Ghibli. Ones that aren't too action packed and only have normal looking characters. Even though I've given the majority of them at least an 8. Can't go wrong most of the time. Castle in the Sky is my favorite of the action types. That one reminds me a lot of Future Boy Conan. But looking over the list, I guess I like Poppy Hill, Kiki's Delivery Service (the character designs in both of those are too good), Whisper of the Heart, and Arrietty the most. I have a few to hit up still.

It went really well actually! I've been craving this style the most in the last few weeks. Started off by rewatching the Bubblegum Crisis OVA, which I hadn't seen in nearly 13 years. So that was loads of fun. Finally got around to watching Crash which... is a pretty big step down. But still pretty easy to watch. The craving was still there so Gall Force seemed like a logical next step. I don't know if the timing is perfect or what, but I enjoyed the hell out of that first one last night. So I think this is going to go a lot smoother than the last time.

That is a piece of cake for me, Josh ;-)

Ronja gets a huge thumbs up so far. This has been great stuff. It feels so familiar yet so different at the same time. Love the fact that they're robbers and the castle is split between the two factions. I anticipate lots of fun to be had with all that. The CGI was a little weird at first. But I probably adjusted to it by episode 3 when pretty much everything leveled up with her entering the forest. Some of the facial expressions have been extremely good, so I don't even mind. I guess they did it this way for cost purposes since it was their first series and all. Miyazaki's son is pretty damn good between this and From Up on Poppy Hill that I watched the other day. That was probably one of my favorite Ghibli movies. But I have a feeling this series is going to top the list for me.

give me something to watch or I'll rob you blind!
SnugglyWhuggly Feb 5, 3:15 AM
Yeah, that's us. :p
SnugglyWhuggly Feb 4, 10:07 AM
I doubt it, but perhaps, lol.

I'd definitely like to watch it at some point, but I have a feeling it's probably going to be quite a long time before I do finally get around to it.

I can get pretty emotional over people close in my life, but that's about it. I do occasionally get emotional over anime or video games though, and I like it when it happens.

Yeah, I was thinking of watching in production order. I take it ZZ is an "experience" in a sense that it isn't very good? lol.
Akanezora Feb 3, 11:30 AM
Uhm, what new series?

Haha fine, you got me!
Speaking of which, are you currently watching Gintama or did you stop watching it years ago?

Yes it is, I haven't personally read the manga, but some friends told me it's pretty good so I thought I could give it a fair chance.
Same as Sakamoto, it is known to be hilarious just like Prison School so I'm having high expectations on that.

FF4 is awesome, and btw are you interested in the FF Dissidia PS4 game that should come out this year? Just watched the latest gameplays and I'm kinda hyped right now, even though I'm no really a big fan of fighting games but .. this one has a lot of FF characters that I love so I'll give it a thought I guess.

Jolyne is awesome :)

Yeah, It looks like part 7 will be among my favorite parts, next to part 2 - Battle Tendency, part 4 - Diamond is Unbreakable and part 6 - Stone Ocean. Araki's transition from shounen to seinen magazine from part 7 on has brought many good things. Overall way way better art and pacing. He has learned a lot in his 1-6 parts. His writing has improved a lot since the start. This is my kind of Jojo. It's like a combination of every strength Araki has and then some.
galimx Feb 2, 3:35 AM
Yeah. JoJo is love, Jojo is life :D

Business administration mostly, or just anything in the "administration" sector would be nice.

Yeah, it hits home all the more when you remember that it's based around real events. Definitely one of the best series of the 70s for me, so far at least.

That's a shame. I watched the movie before the series, the movie kind of motivated to watch the 50 episode show. It was one of those few moments where I actually felt emotional over something fictional.

He supposedly cares more about Dragon Quest than HxH these days, lol.

There's so many so many series in the Gundam franchise, I'm not really too sure where to start once I'm finished with the original.

I think you got it pretty spot on with the ending. There's something special about Miyazaki's works where he pours his heart out on themes like the greed of men, coexistence between humans and nature, war, etc. (only his love for flying and planes was missing in Mononoke hime). And it's one of those perfect productions you can't really take anything from or add to without changing them for the worse. In terms of perfect execution I think of Satoshi Kon's works first in comparison. When I first watched Perfect Blue I could only think "wow" at the end.

Doesn't sound too difficult, but I can imagine getting sick of it pretty fast. Not that I've watched Chihayafuru but I don't know anything about Karuta either. I doubt any beginner would know anything about that unless you happened to have an interest for it.
I respect fansubs in general because aside from little donations (for some at least) it's entirely voluntarily. The amount of time they devote to just subbing a bunch of shows is

Yeah, it's probably burnout. It's a shame, but when I think about having to keep up with all those shows, weekly, every year, I think I'd eventually hook off too. Indeed, same with Gundam, shame though it happened to be Gundam X that got cut short since that's honestly one of the best series in the franchise, but luckily Gundam is going strong now. Not sure if you've watched Iron-Blooded Orphans yet but it's a really good one.

Hm that sucks :/ Maybe they don't have enough stock or something? I don't really know how Amazon works.

Jyushimatsu definitely has the best voice. His voice actor did a perfect job in that episode when he sort of had a girlfriend, that was pretty emotional now that I think back.

Oh yeah, they'll probably release like 1 or 2 new OP games every year, lol. I also have Unlimited Cruise (1&2) on Wii but never finished either because the bosses are seriously difficult.

Hey Hias.
I just found out there are English subs for Tezuka's Buddha movie 2 here.
If you're interested, better grab them sooner than later.
See ya.

I really hope you'll enjoy the Sound of Music. And the BDs look beautiful. I know, man, my sister loved Grease when she was a teen. She watched it whenever it aired on tv, and obviously I had to watch it too. xD I didn't really liked it at that time, because I followed this "if my sister loves it then I hate it" type of ideology, but after a few years I learned to appreciate it *laughs

Yeah, it is a really emotionally wreacking story. Damn.
Yeah, the great aunt represents somewhat the religious aspects of the story which turned out quite awkwardly most of the time. I remember one time when she says something about the Lord to Annette, who looks at her aunt with a deadpan expression on her face and leaves. That cracked me up a bit :D

I hope things will work out for you too and you can make up with that girl eventually :)

Oh, nice! I wish I could buy those 0079 BDs too. They look and sound soooo good. I'm planning to rewatch the franchise this year as well. I feel like 2016 is going to be the year when I finally return to some of my old favurites and watch them again. I really need to give them more love. :D

I can't wait to see Gundam Thunderbolt myself. It doesn't seem to be about angsty teenagers finally and it's UC!

I get what you mean, I'm not the dub hater myself but I usually want to watch movies and such in their original audio, just because it feels more realistic to me. Same goes for games, I'm playing AC: Syndicate as you may know already and the dub for the main characters is quite good but since it takes place in the victorian London around 1840 it feels a bit .. unrealistic hearing the characters speaking in Italian. So I switched to English and I'm fairly satisfied, also because I think old classic British goes from being classy af to hilarious and exaggerated most of the times.

Yup, the setting was something hooked me up from the beginning. A lot of different elements mixed together which resulted a very engaging movie.

I see, so is it like a Gintama for example? Alternating funny and touching moments in the same episode?

Spring looks quite promising, other than JoJo (obviously) there are quite the few titles I want to watch like: Boku no Hero Academia, Joker Game, Bungou Stray Dogs, Sakamoto Desu ga? and Ushio to Tora 2.

I had and read the first little chapter of the comic based on The Last of Us, since they gave it with the D1 edition of the game. Very very nice one. Anyway yeah, I agree, I personally can't wait for the next game of Naughty Dogs, they certainly know what they're doing.
