Yes, I understand that Punchline is an original animation. However, that does not mean it wasn't created to announce a VN. I stand by my statement. It isn't just coincidence that they announce a VN for the show and tell us to play it because it adds an additional 10 episodes worth of content. Not to mention Uchikoshi says it clears up loose ends in the anime. Don't you think any loose ends in the anime should be tied up in the anime alone instead of making me go out and buy a different form of media to get the full story? I had so many questions not answered by the anime.

"For things that weren’t represented or remained mysterious in the anime, see the game."

"What to say? The TV anime ends at episode 12, but the game adds in about 10 episodes’ worth of content."

quoted from Uchikoshi in an interview found http://nichegamer.com/2015/06/first-details-for-punch-line-game-interview-with-kotaro-uchikoshi/.

Anyways, I appreciate your comment.

Thanks for the criticism. I guess I tried to keep 'detail' on a minimum because I don't want to spoil anything for any possible viewers. It might be a moot point, but I really don't want to spoil anyone haha. I thought I did give some good examples for why I think any given area was held down, I also don't think I restated things too much haha. Referring to its acclaim was a good way to start it off in my opinion. Yes, I do think Clannad is held down by its acclaim, just letting any readers know that. Thanks for actually telling me why you had problems with the review, but I think you were knit-picking a little because it seems After Story is one of your favorites. I wonder, why did you give Clannad and After Story a 10? Just want to know, I'm curious as to what makes them 'masterpieces'.

Thx for letting me know. Very much appreciated :)

Yep! You said it much better, that's exactly what I was trying to explain. Concept-wise, Chapman is so good. Building up technical skills, could be better. Ya know what I mean.

And CalArts is the main specialty school I know about. Didn't know they're closing down their 2D department, that's really sad :(. But uh, School of Visual Arts (in New York) also does some great stuff from what I've seen. Idk what their graduate program is like though.
spritefan2 Oct 20, 2013 2:18 AM
Oh what?! It's against the guidelines? They should lock the option to even post a review while it's airing haha. Thanks for letting me know. If that's the case, I guess it'll be taken down. I have the file of it saved somewhere though, and hopefully I'll remember to review it. I spent a while typing it up, and was totally done with working on it once I got to the end. I don't know enough about this community I guess, I'll be sure to condense it in the future. Thanks again for the tip.

And for the school I'm going to, I go to Chapman University (in southern California). I'm not too sure whether or not I'd recommend it, because it really depends what you're looking to get out of it.
If you're looking for teachers to really build up and improve your art/animation skills... Chapman isn't the place for you. The teachers that teach you how to do the actual production of an animation are really average. You do learn a lot though and you become really well-rounded here. But when it comes to the pre-production (the planning of an animation), there is 1 OUTSTANDING professor who teaches here, and that's Bill Kroyer. He has so much knowledge and experience with the industry, he even has directed a film before (Fern Gully). Also he has tons of connections to people and big studios around here, he's friends with everyone.
With Chapman getting to know Bill is definitely the best thing that comes from it. All that story-telling knowledge I went on about in the review is directly from one of his classes. That class taught me so much more than what I was previously aware of. It was completely enlightening to me. Unfortunately, he only teaches a history of animation class, a story-telling class, and three semesters of Senior Thesis. (I'm excited to start doing those Senior Thesis classes next semester so much more to learn!)
So yeah, Chapman isn't too good, when it comes to learning a single skill that will land you a job. But, you do become very well-rounded and really understand every bit of how things work.

For the Otaku Art Club?

I'd love to, but if you look on the club officer roster I was demoted because Sadame didn't like how much people liked my contest compared to hers. She told me I wasn't allowed to start anything without her permission (despite the fact that blue-star asked me to start the contest) and made it so I have access to pretty much nothing in the club. I wish I could say she had a better reason, but that really is it. Despite how many people I brought in and how much enthusiasm I got going for the contests, she couldn't handle the fact that she didn't have 100% control or 100% of the attention. So I'm just not going to do anything there anymore because it isn't worth arguing with a 14 year old girl with confidence issues. =/

I suggest coming over to 'Drawing Contests". http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=25769
Many of the same people from the other club are there and they hold contests as well, as the name would suggest. I'm an admin over there too. =)

Thanks once again and I will definitely be trying to deliver more in the future and refine my reviewing technique as much as I can.

My plan is to try and review every anime I finish watching from now on (and shortly after so I keep it fresh in my head). Of course being a busy college student this might not always be the case, but I can at least try. However, with how much I rely on this site now to manage my ever-expanding backlog it shouldn't be too hard to keep up on this trend.

Just keep on the look out for any new reviews, and I appreciate feedback of any kind! Especially correcting factual errors like that slip-up in my Clannad review.
austin_4e Dec 9, 2012 9:48 AM
Thanks a lot for this and I'll be sure to edit that bit about Key and add KyoAni.

I try my best, but I'm not by any means an expert on animation, I just try my best to be as thorough as possible when I'm reviewing it. Basically it's easy for me to overlook a lot of details because I'm not always 100% sure what I'm going to write about until I'm actually writing the review. I'll try to keep motion in mind for future reviews.

It's great to hear some real constructive feedback, so thanks again!
budaki Sep 10, 2012 9:48 PM
Well looks like your right, sorry about that. Thanks for correcting me I still have a lot to learn about the manga/anime world. I change them to say the stories were created by the same writer. I hope im correct in saying that
budaki Sep 10, 2012 9:34 PM
Im not saying your wrong because your probably right but im pretty sure the when i watch both of them the first thing on screen Key/arts or studios. Ill look into it though. Im not very knowledgeable about the companies and such. I should probably learn though.
Hufflepuff4002 Aug 24, 2012 12:34 PM
Oh god the baseball episode. All the things they could've explored within that anime and they decided to do a baseball episode.
Hufflepuff4002 Aug 23, 2012 10:10 PM
Okay, accepted, but it does seem like the show was pumped full of characters and cliches to make it sell to the 'high school anime' demographic.

The fight scenes seemed like their attempt to make the audience think ''Oh yeah awesome fight scene'' when in reality they were just poor and could've been drastically improved to make them worthwhile or just cut.

Fanart but used a few reference pics"

I've also just read your "About" thing and also checked out your anime list Which Oddly enough
Only Has 10's if my eyes aren't deceiving me. :O

Wow your anime "Time (Days) - 58.5" is nearly 5 times mine
Unfortunately i haven't watched a Massive amount of anime as of this year.
I just can't seem to find the right balance with Life, Hobbies, and Anime yet.
Soo i just chose to take it REALLY slow for the time being until i find a way to make things work out Hopefully soon.

OH WOW you just joined "DeviantArt" TODAY :P
Just wanted to Say " Your an amazing artist" and that you sound like someone that
Acknowledges A LOT of the HARD work and Effort it takes to entertain us viewers. :)

Ah thanks for that. I guess I shouldn't just write off everything as generic. And I'll go ahead and add stuff about the art and sound.
