Good Jojo reviews, also like how at the end of your reviews, you put other anime/manga recommendations
Jatz May 24, 3:54 AM
That's not a problem. I only just finished my temp contract, so I know all about working giving it to you hard. (tears for 14 hour work days) Good luck with work and hopefully you get some lube!

Oh no! You're full of assorted chocolate bars?! You're living the dream, my man!

I guessed as much. JoJo isn't the best series I've seen either (not until Part 7 is animated anyway).

haha I guess that shows how much you liked it. Sounds like The Cat Returns will have moved up on your watchlist.

I don't believe that. You started Joe 2!

So you say, but I've seen enough pokemon to know about your nefarious plot to have Camerupt win in the polls.

Ah cool. How soon do you think it'll take for you to move out? lol I guess the anime is more important than clothes, so it makes sense.

I've ended up buying complete manga sets for a ton of series since I got my first paycheck (Parasyte, Honey and Clover, 20th Century Boys, Sailor Moon, Lone Wolf and Cub, Samurai Executioner, NANA, Lady Snowblood, Akira) as well as catching up with other stuff like Vagabond and Hero Academia. Storage is a problem for me too. XD

I love how you've posed Killer Queen and Za Warudo. I see you totally ship them.

Ye, I'm probably about to drop some shit myself. Nice, you started Joe 2. Bask in the high-definition.

The only argument I've really heard for Grave of the Fireflies being bad is the director's intention being morally repulsive, using an author's story to guilt trip the younger generation in Japan, and it's drive to make the audience sad (even attributing some glances from Sato towards the "camera" as accusatory towards it). I found it to be a misinterpretation and dumb. Why didn't you like it?

Yep, that was bad. Maybe I already knew something like that was in store, but just to mention it outright like that takes you of the story. Let's see how episode 8 delivers.
Jatz May 22, 1:59 AM
that's a niceu mango collection Lind. Anime collection soon? ;)
TonyTheme May 21, 8:14 PM
I feel like you shouldn't suffer through a show just cause unless you're doing it for a different reason like how you're watching SEED. Even the really bad shows entertain me with their ineptness, but some just didn't sit right - Sword Art Online II after GGO, BlazBlue: Alter Memory (love the games), Heroic Age, and so on. It's those middle of the road shows that are so meddling and seems to vacuum any kind of fun that could be had.

Didn't really have a problem with that. I watched 6 episodes in one sitting once. I did, however, take a break from it for about a month. Hate when a supposed masterpiece happens to just be good to you, though. It's pretty frequent with me, but Only Yesterday and Princess Kaguya surprised me.

One thing I can't fault is the overall direction, although it does succumb to mawkishness and repetition with things like flashbacks. Does the manga also feature the narration of Midori becoming the greatest hero ever? Thought that was unnecessary. Joe does it with so much flair, it should be nearly impossible to not enjoy those moments.
TonyTheme May 21, 6:16 PM
I'll pick that back up eventually. I just don't like watching too much 3-cour shows at once. Luckily, I got a roulette entry, Otaku no Video, that was both short and something I was planning to watch. I'm surprised you're still considering watching Shion no Ou. I erred on that, too, so I'm picking up Ima Soko. Already had it, anyway.

Anne is great, but I'm not sure how much you'll end up liking it. Probably more of the same based on how you like his other work, which is still good. I could never watch so many currently airing shows at once.

While I find Academia's narrative predictable and its characters cliche, something about it feels earnest and it can pull off dramatic moments well enough. Maybe it's a good thing I didn't read the manga after chapter 1. Reminds me of why I loved battle shounen.
TonyTheme May 21, 5:44 PM
Nice, thanks. I just got to the completely new content in Joe 2 and it's better than what came before. Joe is a monster and such an entertaining character to watch.

Damn, I figured you already doing a bit of that with the amount of shows on your currently watching list. You're at least enjoying Hero Academia's anime? Get on that backlog, though, that thing's a mile long. Mine's twisted with rewatches at the moment.
TonyTheme May 21, 5:00 PM
How did you make that chart image? Joe 2 is hype.
Suna_Kujira May 21, 1:33 PM
That's an awfully deep and meaningful thing to read from a vending machine.
dioshio May 16, 6:08 AM
Totally.
Tell me, anything worth watching this season that isn't JJBA? You know I blindly trust your taste in animu.
Jatz May 14, 4:52 AM
Hiya Lindle! How've you been?

Pretty nice top 50 image. Cool to see a few series I really like too (tears for JoJo at 31). Would be interesting to see how our top 50s would compare. :P

Read your Whisper of the Heart review too. It's such an excellent movie!

You been reading/watching anything cool recently? Have you seen the Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set news? :O

I shake my head at your David Camerupt plug
Suna_Kujira May 12, 2:00 PM
Good luck.
Suna_Kujira May 12, 12:28 AM
You didn't want to talk JoJo's with me. I'm worried about you, Lindle.
Suna_Kujira May 10, 10:26 PM
I did that yesterday on skype, so I'll just copy some of my comments on SC.
Did I enjoy Jojo? Yes. But I feel like I might've enjoyed part 1 more than part 2. Maybe this is due to part 2 being fresh in my mind and being able to remember all its flaws. The main reason part 2 might be worse than part 1 is that even if the good fights are better than more of part 1's good fights, the bad fights are way, way worse. A short overview of the fights in part 2 going by the stand names:
Geb was ok, Khnum and Toth were some of the most unfunny moments in all of Jojo and I sighed hard when you know what happens later on, Anubis was pretty cool, Bastet was stupid eventhough the way they dealt the final blow was well thought out, Sethan was so bad... just so bad, Osiris was pretty cool, very tense moments, but then the ending happened and it was just a bit too silly, Horus was ok but animals fighting doesn't really do it for me, Atum was simply retarded (playing videogames... is Araki going to create a ramen stand if he's hungry while thinking of new stands?), Tenore Sax was killed without really being introduced and the non-fight was much funnier when they did one in the first part of SC, Cream was pretty good but the way he let himself get damaged was very convenient (because even if they could somehow see him, this stand was way too op), and the final dio fight wasn't that impressive, again way too much convenience just so the predictable outcome can happen

I can elaborate on certain fights if you want. Oh, and Shadow has already sent me this image when he read about my opinion on the Khnum and Toth moment(s). Overall, I think people like part 2 more for the last fights which stand-out and a conclusion to the story is more exciting to watch than the beginning. To me, the Egyptian god card stands just seem to be very uneven, either the stands are weak to the point of almost being useless or they're way too powerful.
Now for some favourites from the first three parts:
Favourite part: SC, mostly because the stands add some rules and are undoubtedly better than hamon, making for better fights. It was also more consistently funny, even if there were still a lot of moments that weren't. And no, Joseph on his own doesn't immediately make BT great.
Favourite character: Speedwagon Polnareff because the third part is still fresh in my mind.
Favourite fights: osiris, hanged man, anubis, cream, strength.
Favourite stand: Hermit Purple of course
look: star platinum or the world
power: death thirteen
and I'd choose death thirteen if I could have one of the stands.
Now you can tell me your favourites and why I'm wrong. ;)

Because she's a bitch, she's also pretty useless, think of her as something like Shinji, but with no personality.
