Yeah, I thought the live action film overplayed the comedy just a little too much. It got to the point where I could no longer identify with the severity of the crisis at times, which attenuated the tension quite a bit. That, and the cop-out ending really bugged me. But otherwise, it was an alright movie, I guess.

I'm making slow progress on Koe no Katachi, but I'm enjoying it a lot. Liking how most characters in this manga are getting their fair share of developments, instead of just staying as one-dimensional supporting characters all the time. Ueno, in particular, impressed me with her character complexity. At first, I disliked her for being a total bully to Nishimiya, and for hiding her true personality underneath that fake "nice girl" persona. But, just like Ami from Toradora, Ueno undergoes some pretty realistic changes after realizing her wrongdoings. And unlike Ishida, she's not afraid of confronting her problems head-on, and she's very upfront (albeit, arguably too direct) about her feelings. Although I don't necessarily find her very likable, at the very least, I can respect her character for being well-written.

So yeah, looking forward to catching up with it.

Well, I finished Michiru's route now, and it was a good read. All I got left is Yumiko's, hope it delivers well. G-senjou's true route is one-of-a-kind, seriously. It ranks among one of the most entertaining, and satisfying experiences I've ever seen or read in a fiction. It's kinda hard for Grisaia to hold a candle to that.

Hmm, thanks for sharing that. It does sound like they're going to put some thought into making this work. Always nice to see producers actually trying to create a show that steers away from the usual fan-service shenanigans, one that actually has some refreshing ideas. I mean, cliche is fine, if used in moderation. It's not good, however, when a show feels the need to rely on them, for the sole purpose of promoting sales. :/

Indeed, the art was quite the eye candy. I was also pretty invested in the whole time-loop phenomenon going on with the protagonist, personally. And I liked the short, intimate romance between the main duo. The live action version was inferior to the manga for me. Tell me what you think after you get to it.

Oh, and, Koe no Katachi is totally compatible with my taste~ The whole "redemption" deal on the protagonist's end, was done quite well; reminds me of Onanie Master Kurosawa at times. I really shouldn't have left it on-hold for 6 months, in retrospect...

Dashiawia | 08-13-14, 7:13 AM
I stopped reading 'cause at the time, there was only 24 chapters out, and I wanted to wait until more chapters are out before continuing it. Too bad I forgot all about it months later. =[

Yeah, I had that same feeling, though I can't pinpoint where exactly I had seen something similar to it.

I know, I'm slow, okay? Grisaia's very good once you get into it, but it's a matter of motivation for me, since it does require a lot of time investment, which I can't really afford to invest these days. I liked how G-senjou took no more than 24 hours to complete. It was extremely rewarding for the amount of hours I put into it. Grisaia? It's probably worth it in the end, too. But since it's at least twice as long, I'm finding it more challenging to actually marathon it. That being said, I'm almost done with the VN. Currently on my penultimate route [Michiru's; Yumiko's being my final unfinished route].

Just watched that trailer. Visuals are nothing short of breathtaking. Let's just hope that the story and characters will be competent enough to make good use of the spectacular aesthetics. In other words, it just needs to not be a repeat of Guilty Crown.

Also, how did you like All You Need Is Kill? I thought it was decent, considering its length. I also watched the movie adaptation, Edge of Tomorrow, in theater, a couple weeks ago. The film primarily focused on the action scenes, and added more comedy to spice things up. But in doing so, it made light of some of the more powerful, dramatic moments, severely undermining the impact they had. Can't say I was pleased with the modified ending, either; it was a cop-out ending, hardly befitting the bittersweet conclusion the manga, and presumably, the LN, has laid out for us.

Dashiawia | 08-07-14, 10:58 AM
Oh, good luck on your project. :)

I should probably get around to continuing that sometime, too. I remember liking it quite a bit when I read some of it last year. The One-Shot version was pretty decent as well.

> "MC is too good of a guy to forgive him, he fuking killed hoshijiro due to his ego and envy."

The protagonist is unfortunately, far too kind and forgiving. When it comes to assholes like Kunato, you would think that the protagonist should be more angry. Hell, I'd have at least given him a punch to the face before forgiving him, if I were in his shoes. He certainly deserves that much, at least.

I haven't tried AIR either, as I've taken a long break from visual novels. Though I do plan on catching up with Grisaia no Kajitsu in due time. It's one heck of a long novel, I tell you...

Dashiawia | 08-05-14, 9:58 AM
Pretty much the same on my end. Been managing fine otherwise.

Barakamon gives me Usagi Drop feels, which is a great thing since I love the latter show. There's a lot of subtle, heartwarming moments in it that will tug on your heartstrings.

Can't say I liked Kunato either. At least he was shown to be conscious of his wrongdoings later on in the series, though. Presumably, he'll change for the better from that moment on.

Yep. It's almost as if some generous member sent a bunch of club invitations or something... I sure as hell didn't expect so many folks to join my little club. =p

Hey Tom, it's been a while. How have you been recently?

Indeed. Ufotable's remake of UBW should be quite the spectacle, if done right. When factoring in their previous successes with Type-Moon franchises (i.e. Kara no Kyoukai, Fate/Zero), there's a good chance they will get it right this time as well. As to HF, I have no idea what to expect from it, as I have not yet read the source material. All I know is that it will be the most controversial route in F/SN, and that it's the "darkest" one by far. I'd probably enjoy it if it's anything like Urobuchi's standard writing.

I see. I personally watched a bunch of shows from last season, and, despite initially refusing to watch much of this season's stuff, I ended up watching about a dozen of them anyway, out of simple curiosity. From the ones I've checked out, Zankyou no Terror, Barakamon, Aldnoah.Zero, and Ao Haru Ride strike me as the most engaging ones out of them. Sidonia no Kishi was fine for me plot-wise, albeit I didn't particularly like the characters in it.

Dashiawia | 05-26-14, 8:00 AM
Nice. Welcome back, dude. :)

I'm doing fine, thanks. Just finished school and I'm now in the middle of my summer break. Are you watching any airing anime this season? Also, have you heard the news about the new Fate/Stay Night anime coming up this fall season? It should be awesome, as it will be animated by Ufotable. Preferably, I'd hope that the anime will be an adaptation of the Heaven's Feel route, and not a remake of Fate or Unlimited Blade Works.

Then you are at the position as Battler and maybe every other reader.Battler's words to her towards the end of EP5 pretty much mean "I dont fucking understand. Why do you go through all this trouble?"

The end isnt a "This is the culprit" kind of end. The story stops being about what happened on the island at EP7(or EP6 depending how you see it) and EP8 is just a conclusion to the story but not the mystery. Just like the people in Ange's world, you are left with your own theories.

I barely post anything outside Fate/ and Index forums. Where do you see me?

FakePriest | 05-20-14, 10:01 AM
Well the ps3 version has better art thats for sure, although I prefer the troll faces of the old version.
The VA is a problem sometimes. I mean ...there is a problem of OVERACTING there that just make you cringe during fights, cry time, and Beatrice(or anyone) making fun of Battler, etc but aside from that it is good.And a certain character's lines in Chiru are plain stupid with the voice acting.

There is no difference in the story telling.

Hey, not sure if you remember me at all, but just take a look at the com in that case ;)

So i recently started reading some manga because of various reasons, and got around to Break Blade. Nearly up to speed now.

Overall i do not think the changes are that big i'd say. Girge was changed more, especially his death, which was weird in the anime, but with his personality, everythijng he does feels weird anyways..

I hope they will pick his story up again as they didn't answer why he shot the other soldiers during training, which looks pretty important to me, given that we basically only know two events in his past, and he probably spent most of the rest in prison anyways..

As for the rest, Zess being an asshat.. i don't know. His intentions so far are good, though the execution was flawed. I wonder what he will do now though, with his new position, and Hodr etc. no longer directly being threatened - unless Zess himself starts another invasion, which would be kinda contradictory to what he wanted to achieve.

Dashiawia | 01-28-14, 9:33 PM
Yeah. It's a typical harem from what little I have seen/read of it, though it does have its comedic moments. I have yet to meet this Marika girl, which I hear is quite likable.

Indeed. SSY is pretty much a darker version of Nagi no Asukara, in that it's also a coming-of-age story about a group of kids, living in a fantasy world. The main difference would be that SSY is a horror/thriller, while Asukara is a drama/romance. SSY has a unique story and some very interesting themes. I would've given it at least an 8 if I had liked the first half more. I think I told you this before, but I nearly dropped the show after episode 8 at some point [not a fan of dumb yaoi or yuri]; really glad I didn't though, or I would've missed out big time. Can't say I was especially attached to any of the characters, but the plot kept me interested in the second half.

Oh yeah. TTGL is kind of a strange show in that it wants you to think it's a typical shounen, with cliche characters and plot. And in some ways, it is generic. But, it's also very self-aware, and almost plays around with all the common tropes like a parody. In other words, it knows not to be super serious with its themes most of the time, which works well to make it stand out from the other typical shows. I didn't really find it to be that deep per se, but I liked the characters enough to care about what happens to them.

Have fun with Psycho-Pass. It's somewhat similar to SSY in its thriller tendencies. I enjoyed it.

Dashiawia | 01-27-14, 7:35 PM
I see. As a fan of Shaft's unique visuals, I'm actually content with the anime adaptation so far. The directing has been fairly good and the pacing isn't too shabby, either. But to be honest, neither the manga nor the anime are exactly cutting it for me. The whole pretend-to-be-lovers theme has been done before in Oreshura, and I'm not seeing anything creative in Nisekoi at all. It's still enjoyable to some degree though. And yeah, I consider Shinsekai yori to be brilliant in the second half with its dark plot; the thriller aspect was good, too. TTGL was also quite fun in that it was always over-the-top and epic in a good way. Got to love its bittersweet ending as well.

Dashiawia | 01-27-14, 5:55 PM
That's nice, and it's okay. I hate typing long messages with my phone, too; those small keys are a hassle no matter how hard I try to get used to them. >.<
Glad you liked those two shows. I enjoyed them, too, though apparently not to the same extent you did. lol

Also, that's a cute Chitoge picture you got there~ Are you currently following the anime or reading the manga [for Nisekoi]?

Dashiawia | 01-15-14, 2:07 PM
The only anime I watched as a kid were Pokemon, Digimon, Beyblade, DBZ/DB/DBGT, and Yugioh. So yeah, not a lot of variety in those.

He'd do well not to show his ugly side in front of the kids, lol.

Mhm. Can't say I liked Aku no Hana much, either. Admittedly, the manga is visually more appealing than the cringe-worthy anime. But still, I've seen far better coming-of-age stories out there [e.g. Onanie Master Kurosawa, Oyasumi Punpun].

Nice, that actually sounds like something I'd enjoy. Madoka was a pretty fantastic show all around, imo, and I'm looking forward to the third movie to be released and subbed in HD. Anyway, have fun with Mai Hime. :)

Dashiawia | 01-14-14, 11:42 AM
No no, that's not what I meant. Meant to say that Clannad was the anime that got me out of watching mainstream shounen shows, such as Bleach and Naruto. Ever since After Story, I began to look at anime very differently than I used to, and came to actually appreciate non long-running battle shows. In that sense, Clannad would be that one show that permanently changed my perspective on what an excellent anime should be like.

I'd think it's pretty exhausting to pose as a try-hard elitist 24/7, to be honest. Unless, of course, he isn't really acting and that's just how he is in real life. I'm dubious on that idea, personally, as I find it incredulous how anyone can have such an unfounded, inflated ego. But hey, maybe he's really 'sugoi' and 'kakkoii'~

Ahh, that's nice. I should like that kind of realistic drama, then. Will be giving it a try once I get ahead on some my current priority items first.

I dropped Mai-Hime because I did not find the characters very endearing on first impression, and my attention span isn't the greatest when it comes to watching characters I don't really care about. But that sounds kind of interesting. Maybe I'll pick it up again in the future if I'm in the mood. Tell me how it goes when you do decide to pick it up. I have a proclivity to drop shows that don't leave a good first impression, so I may be missing out on some hidden gems every once in a while. Therefore, if you believe I may be mistaken on dropping something prematurely, feel free to let me know. It's appreciated. :)

No worries. It wasn't difficult to make out the meaning of your message.
