"Even if there is no God or Buddha... There is Kamen Rider."
Thanks. I'll have to check Katsu out some time soon. Maybe this weekend?
The Touch ending was great, although some people got a bit pissed off about it since Tatsuya's stubbornness nearly ended it on a sour note. I think the issue is that everyone expects perfection from the protagonist, when Adachi made it clear that Tatsuya is a very flawed human being. He's a lot different from Kitamura or Hiro in that regard. He also starts out as a terrible pitcher unlike the others.
Major is pretty fun so far. I'm not really sure what to expect right now since the series is so massive (like... 150 episodes) but it's off to a good start considering I almost never watch six episodes back-to-back. The scenes with his father are also great, although
I was kind of expecting him to get beaned in that episode. There was a lot of foreshadowing (like the broken helmet in the OP) and it had all the traits of a prologue arc. Still, I'm really interested in seeing where things will go from here.
Not sure if you've said that to me before either. Oh well. That's pretty much my fear, and it's going to bug me until they get closer to the end since I imagine it's really just going to be the ending that'll be anime-only.
Yeah, I saw that just wondered what in the actual fuck. It's pretty rare for a single to be released that late. And Valvrave 1 = 6 > 4 > rest. 2 fucking where?
I was prepared for that going in. I've pretty much heard every good and "bad" thing about Turn A over the years. I did plan to put it off till I rewatched a few other Gundams as well as finished Unicorn, but just said fuck it after you completed it. I am finding it easier to watch than pretty much anything else I've started recently. I suppose Gundam is just burned into me after my childhood and I can't really hate it, even if it turns out to be garbage. Except SEED Destiny. Fuck that shit. I already prefer the 1st OP for Turn A though ( ¬‿¬) And I'm not really one to care about slow pace, really. Aria is still one of my top favorites, Mushishi is just about equally amazing and Natsume Yuujinchou is damn good too. All with paces slower than a fire ant pushing a brick across Antarctica.
Anyways, I think doing shit like that with OPs is pretty much a waste, but I guess that's what the single is always for. Even so, I can't recall offhand, but I've seen a few series do that too and it's annoying. So tl;dr fuck yeah Obari SRW OG2 adaption and I should play the games.
Getting into Victory is hard as it is, I don't blame you for that. Speaking of video games, I've been the same with those as well. Although recently I played the PC version of RE6. WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT SHIT. Other than that, it may just be because I don't care for buying games (read: no money, although I should be getting a job soon-ish), but I find myself staring at walls more often nowadays. I'd gladly watch you stream and call you a faggot at every turn, if you'd like. Better than staring at walls, at least.
The only problem I see with Turn A is that I've practically been hyped to the moon for a good few years. I'm pretty good about putting hype aside, but even so, I'm still expecting it to be really fucking good.
Akumetsu feels like the author is just masturbating to the fact that he can understand politics better than the average person, and it becomes asinine at times. He knows how to write, but I don't care for almost a full volume of political build-up for Shou (MC) to do something pretty awesome (being an "evil" Batman) that ends in a few chapters. It's starting to shift a bit more from politics though into a general "What really is good/evil?" type of story, similar to Death Note, but using politics/Batman as its base instead of detective/the death note. The art is fuckinggreat and just getsbetter as time goes on. inb4 this is Sparta, but it seems like it'll just get better from here on out, so we'll see. I plan on finishing it after this anyways.
tl;dr it's really good, but also annoying at times.
Episode 2 had anime-only content, which wasn't bad, surprisingly. Actually added a little bit of depth since it didn't cut straight from Eren on the boat to after their training. Although I still would've liked to get into everything already since they're also adapting the training flashback from volume 4 starting next episode.
Sadly, SAO went down the same route and did everything chronologically. I'm scared. Also, what the fuck, muh Mikasa design.
I don't think there'll ever be a monthly manga that doesn't leave off on cliffhangers and that saddens me. Did I mention how much I hate monthly publications? Can't say I really noticed a difference in scan quality, but I won't really remember what last months scans look like anyways unless I check. Either way, yeah, that was better than the last chapter. As for SAO, well, yeah, I guess, but this isn't A-1. At least I hope they won't be fucking retarded like A-1, even though an anime-only end might as well just be confirmed. At least the OP is pretty bitchin if all else fails. Still can't wait to see the massive shitstorm that'll be had when Eren is revealed to be a titan. The hype train will then turn to the hate train, much like SAO and GC I imagine.
Speaking of OPs, the Valvrave OP is literally fucking perfect. Nana Mizuki x T.M. Revolution are nothing less than perfection incarnate. Or maybe it's just me fanboying my favorite male and female artists doing a collab, but either way, shit is all kinds of amazing.
No, not yet. I'm honestly pretty burnt out on anything that isn't airing, really. As if it wasn't obvious by me picking up multiple shows and never getting past ep 1 (Birdy, Dai-Guard, Iriya no Sora). Me rewatching Major was in hopes of getting un-burnt out, but it didn't really do much for me in terms of that anyways. S1 was still fucking great though.
First episode of Shingeki no Kyojin was even better than the manga. Seeing as, unlike another show being adapted from a manga that's published in the same magazine as SnK this season, it actually adapts the work properly and is only enhanced by the production values.
tl;dr - Fucking wait to marathon the series because waiting week by week is going to be horribly, horribly painful. And we still might get that anime only end, but even then, at least it'll have been an amazing however many episodes.
I'm just not even going to bother with Aku no Hana. There are no words. A big problem everyone, myself included, is with the rotoscoping (which is funny hearing people spouting about it when they probably never heard of it before) totally not being an animation hipster, but even as an adaption it's pretty shit. Just fuck it. If they include the
I'll just watch that episode for shits and giggles.
I think people only compared it to Madoka because it came out shortly after it, but I doubt it would really be compared to it nowadays. I liked Sympho too, obviously because of the music and tech, but they just liked to be ridiculous with the story, which made for a clusterfuck later on. I can't find the .gif either, my folders are pretty clusterfucked it seems. I think the series can only get better though.
Should probably watch the movies once you finish A's. The first movie I think improves upon everything S1 did and would say it could easily replace it. The A's movie has some amazing battle choreography and looks better than the first movie even, but I don't think it can really replace the TV season counterpart, so it's good that you're starting with the TV series first.
Symphogear S2 confirmed for name Symphogear G. And we all know that G is the letter of hotblood and courage.
It's kind of sad that these past seasons have been bad enough to make me hyped for Symphogear of all things. Oh well, as long as it has more good music I'll be happy. Still expecting more ridiculousness than the first season though.
If you do actually plan on watching GJ-bu, it's a legit entertaining/good SoL that's pretty relaxing. I also hope you like spiders.
3-4 is probably about where Magi will end for me, most likely. A-1 also seems to love their anime only content in just about everything they do. The only reason iM@S worked was because 80% of the staff was ex-Gainax, who a) already were fans of the game and b) got assloads of money from Scamco to begin with. And I was just debating on watching Birdy yesterday, since I've had it forever. Might just get around to it. Also have all of the Magi manga DL'd up to like 174 or something, should probably read that sometime soon as well.
Akiho is as awesome as ever, thankfully.
Also, now that the second, and possibly final, Nanoha movie is out (although I'm hoping for 2 movies to remake the third season), I suggest watching them, because they're fucking awesome. Not sure how open you are to a mahou shoujo, but it's hardly one considering everyone is a mecha reference and it completely ditches any little bit of mahou shoujo it had left in the third season. It's not like it wasn't already hot-blooded with nice tech porn to begin with either, but it then goes on to be full out Gendams later on. And Nanoha herself also puts the Strike Freedom to shame in terms of beam spam (both in volume and sheer amount of beams), especially in the movies. And in case you do care enough to watch them and wonder why the movies, it's pretty damn clear why.
