Funny, I'm actually really interested in your opinions even though they are so different than mine. You have really high standards and are very critical in your reviews but always objective and fair. I think I'll be keeping up with your profile from now on :).

I'm also really interested in your opinion on HXH being that it's my favorite anime haha.

I loved your FMA review! I really don't see why we can't like the original and Brotherhood. I found both of them enjoyable! Anyway, great review!

So I just read your review on the original FMA anime.
I thought it was wonderful.

When I finished FMAB, I thought to myself, "Wow, this is so much better than FMA and that bs ending."
The fact of the matter is I was absolutely not satisfied with the ending in the original, because really, it was beyond ridiculous. The door being our dimension in the past? Wtf?
FMAB is wholly a lot more satisfying.

But now that I think back at it, FMA original was pretty damn good. It kept me hooked the entire time and I really only wanted to keep continuing it. I wouldn't have even bothered with watching FMAB if I hadn't found out it was purely based on manga and had more material than the original anime...

That said, I don't know why I'm writing all of this here. Maybe to show you: You have one more comrade in this regard.
FMA original was AMAZING and definitely a great watch.

I'm on episode 26 of hunter x hunter. Should I keep going? Or does it get boring and/or slow?
Deliriant Nov 16, 2013 2:35 PM
Looks like I need to pay more attention when I'm writing...

Thanks for the advice. I'll keep them in mind.
Yeah it was helpful.
Anyways, are working on any review now?
Zarashy Jul 13, 2013 6:38 PM
Haha thanks, appreciate it.
Btw I have submitted a Review for Girls und Panzer. Would you mind giving it a read and suggest me some tips to improve. That would be helpful.

Cyberpunk epic aka just my thing. I really liked how there was just so much going on, thematically and plot-wise. There was a military coup, an oppressive government, a cult, left-wing revolutionaries, outside governments taking advantage of the situation, terrorists, biker gangs, espers, scientists, etc. It's very difficult to connect all of that into one engaging and cohesive plot, but I was really impressed with how everything was built up to and the plot was told superbly in general.

Plus a large cast of characters that were all three dimensional with their own motives and desires, and all experienced some amount of development. I usually don't like when a character is reduced to a plot-device, but I think it was really interesting how Akira, the supposed main antagonist, did barely anything himself and was just dragged around and made to do things by the people around him. I wish Tetsuo was more developed, as in I wish we saw more interactions between him and Kaneda before he snapped, but he was still a very good character. The manga did a good job of letting us know what he was like before the main plot began, without actually showing us and his development from there into a complete, yet insecure, megalomaniac was very well done. I also thought Kei's relationship with Kaneda could have been better developed, but she was a pretty entertaining and multifaceted character regardless.

The art also scores it some pretty big points, not due to photorealism or anything like that, but because it really contributes to the atmosphere and accomplishes its purpose well. It never does any cop-outs and there's a lot of easy-to-follow action going on in every panel. The character designs often leave a bit to be desired, but they are also pretty expressive and everything else about the art is pretty much perfect. Also the way the characters' deaths are drawn and the way the characters are developed make up for any lack of variety in the designs, which are generally distinct from each other and get the job done anyhow.

I have very little truly negative to say about it, and it wasn't really lacking in depth either. I really liked the commentary on post-ww2 Japan, which is always an interesting topic when done well.

PS: Your CG review was well-written, but I would have thought you'd rate it much lower based on the majority of the text. Maybe I'm biased against it though.

Also: where do American Beauty and Requiem for a Dream rank on your movie list? I'm not a film connoisseur, but those are two of my favorites. Just curious, because some people with generally good taste have told me they hate those movies.

Read your review for Code Geass. Interesting it was.
You mentioned a few aspects which I didn't notice. Had a fun time reading it.

So far its very interesting since ive loved sci fi my entire life. The story is very mature and exciting even if it can be a bit slow at times. Reinhard is starting to become one of my favorite characters. My main problem with the show is the really bad animation and the fact it does not have a dub even though its old and is fairly popular. But overall those are small problems.

Indeed, it can't come back soon enough.

BB is filled with red herrings so it's hard to determine which way the story will end. Still, I think Walt will most likely die, maybe by Jessie's hand since he's just done so much terrible things to him that he kind of deserves to be the one to kill him. Also I kind of want some closure to all that mineral stuff Hank was doing haha.

To me highschool of the dead was just mindless fun. When you watch an action ecchi you watch it for the action and the ecchiness of the show. The characters complemented this well . The action scenes were very well animated and just plain entertaining. Yeah the fan service was a little too much. i kind of just became immune to the fanservice after awhile. I try to reserve a 2/10 for shows that feel like a chore to watch and so utterly crap to the point where they have close to zero redeemable qualities. Its not a great show at all but at least it was fun to watch. i cant say that for shows i give a 3-1 like school days , kiss x sis , kanokon and master of martial hearts.
