I think I've finally been outdone as a connoisseur of little girl cartoons and possibly even mahou shoujo (but you'll never defeat me in Precure/Sailor Moon gwahahaha)!

Masserati_ | 09-09-14, 4:25 AM

Thanks for the birthday wishes Parial! Means a lot, really :3

And yeah, Ruri is pretty awesome for sure.

Honestly I'm kind of on the fence about this JoJo adaptation, on the one hand, this is exactly the kind of adaptation that the first two parts should have had. However, Stardust Crusaders is my least favourite JoJo arc next to Phantom Blood, and seeing it dragged out over four cours is something that does make me sad, I just want my Part 4 adaptation ;_;

Yeah, I agree with a lot of what you're saying there. One complaint that I do have however is that it feels at times that SC is suffering from being overdirected. I noticed it back in episode 8 during the Devil fight, the episode was incredibly intense and felt more like a really terrifying horror film than a JoJo episode. The sudden increase in intensity was somewhat jarring and from that point onwards it seems like it's never really gone down. Each fight seems to be trying to outdo the last one with how intense everything gets and I honestly don't think it suits JoJo at all. The one thing that I loved about the first season more than anything else was that it was a huge barrel of fun. Everything about it was incredibly silly and over the top and it was great, here however, a lot of the fun seems to have been lost and it seems as if it's trying to be far more serious than it needs to be.

Hopefully things will improve when they get to Egypt and all of the really good fights start to happen, I'm really looking forward to seeing D'arby the Gamer animated.

Yeah, I felt that Zoku Shou wasn't as good as the first season, although I was never quite able to put my finger on the reason why. I think that is in part due to the fact that it's been a while since I've watched the first season so perhaps a rewatch is in order. One thing that I did notice about it is that not all of the stories were as memorable, although I do think that episode 10 was a rather interesting episode. Seeing Ginko not actually being able to do anything for the first time was very reminiscent of the time when he was stabbed in the first season and it made for a rather interesting change from the established formula. Episode 4 was rather good and episode 8 was really good as well. One thing that definitely surprised me was that this season of Mushishi felt darker, episode 5 especially. The tonal shift definitely surprised me and I was most definitely not prepared for the end result, calling it different is a bit of an understatement, it felt like I wasn't watching Mushishi anymore.

Happiness Charge Precure is amazing and I love it and it's just such a fun show. I'm watching it with my girlfriend and it's great because almost every episode so far has been consistently good (the episode involving Dark Cure Lovely especially was one of the highlights of the series). It makes me really happy that I got into Precure now. Hime is adorable and is easily my favourite character of the series, she's such a sweetheart and her interactions with the girls are great, Hime reaction faces are amazing, yo.

Yeah, that sounds like Kuroko alright, heh. The last match is even worse however, Murasakibarararararara was bad ennough, but Akashi is arguably even more broken. The last match in general was a very frustrating read. Without specifying why it happens, there's one huge Deus ex Machina regarding Kuroko later on in the match that again seems to defy the manga's own rules. The end result is a very predictable and incredibly dragged out final match, far unlike the more interesting matches of the beginning of the series. I'm actually glad that it finished at 275 chapters, there really wasn't anything else it could do with the story and I'd hate to see it get even more ridiculous.

As for Ippo, the last few episodes were a significant step-up. The way that the director of the original treated Kamogawa's backstory with such respect and didn't skim over chapters of the source material to just get to the fights was a refreshing change of pace. Considering that the director of the original is a huge fan of the manga itself though, that isn't too surprising. Even so, Kamogawa's backstory was definitely the highlight of the season and actually improved how I viewed the fight in my eyes.

If you didn't check it out during the Spring season, I'd definitely recommend watching Haikyuu!!. It's easily one of the best shows of the whole year, not just that season. The animation is superb, the character interactions are great (there's a sense of camaraderie amongst the team members not often found in sports shows) and it's an all around fantastic adaptation that manages to surpass the source material in several places. I love it, Rido even bought me a wall scroll poster of it for my birthday :3

As for this particular season well, with the exception of Barakamon and Space Dandy, probably not (considering how you gave Free! a 2, I'm not even gonna try and recommend the second season). The majority of shows I'm watching aren't very good. Aldnoah.Zero is yet another uninspired show from Urobutcher, with sloppy direction and an incredibly dull male lead. The music is quite good however. It's a similar deal for Zankyou no Terror, great music (unsurprising considering that it's Yoko Kanno), but the show itself is quite poor. I didn't check out Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun but I know that DDK loves it, how're you finding it?

Don_Don_Kun | 09-02-14, 5:26 PM
Yeah, I need to resume Doremi or else the little girl-show connoisseur, Parial-friend, will complete it first with his super-speed. Not sure why I keep pausing it given the down-to-earth quality of writing, apt portrayal of the children characters and lighthearted humour. It's a really enjoyable show!

Also, Hazuki > Aiko, but all Doremies are great so I forgive you because you also have Mai on your favourites now.

Also also, Lilpri looks like a ton of fun and I need to watch it eventually with Yumeiro when I'm done with womens' wrasslin'.

Don_Don_Kun | 08-25-14, 5:24 PM
Never thought I'd see the day where Parial would have a Precure season on his favs (even if it's probably just to go with the little girl show theme).

Can you rec me a 90s anime that isn't episodic?

Dar_Klink | 08-18-14, 1:02 AM
Yeah, I didn't follow it from the very beginning but I still watched at least 2 years worth as it came out. Gonna miss it ;_;. I hope Togashi keeps up the pace and we can have the anime back in not tooo long.

I actually did marathon Ippo about 6 months ago or so. Almost caught up on the manga too but got a bit burnt out. Major I really need to watch. I was thinking lately that Sakura might be good marathon material...

Hias | 08-17-14, 10:36 PM
Also, do you have skype?

Hias | 08-17-14, 10:35 PM
It was a spur of the moment thing for me, skimmed some pages and several volumes later...

I plan on it, not sure when but it will happen. Easily one of the best things I've ever read though. I feel like I accomplished something even.

Dar_Klink | 08-17-14, 5:52 AM
At least there's JoJo and HxH! I'm lucky to still have tons of stuff I wanna watch out there. I would like to find one of those easy-to-marathon shows though.

RIP HxH though! It's gonna end in 5 episodes. Gonna feel weird since it's one of the few long-running shows I watched as it was released.

Hias | 08-16-14, 9:12 PM
I just finished reading Ashita no Joe, I feel like I accomplished something by experiencing one of the most timeless stories out there.

Dar_Klink | 08-08-14, 11:53 PM
Thank you Parial-friend! You are also a cu-

Don_Don_Kun | 08-02-14, 11:35 AM
Parial PLS. I just like petite girls. That's the last time I link one of Freedom's images

CharvonLiebert | 07-31-14, 10:19 PM
The New JoJo anime, has been good fun dus far and is more superior to manga, watching one episode once a week, is perfect for me as it doesn't get stale and boring, when I was reading the manga. Jotaro to me anyway is certainly is a downgrade from Joesph Joestar, he just for me isn't as entertaining as Joesph with all his odd quirks and his charismatic upbeat nature also his trollish personality too boot.

The fights still have been great doe the animation has been on point in all the episodes thus far, the fights are very clever and require strategy to beat your opponent, instead of powering up and overwhelming them like in most shounen nowadays, of course it has its flaws but Stardust crusaders has been good fun.

What do you think of the new JoJo Anime??
