About dbaranyi
I've been watching anime since the mid 90s. I usually try out most of the new anime series that come out in Japan every year. I also usually drop most of the anime that I try after one or two episodes and only follow to the end the ones that I really like.

I normally watch anime in Japanese, and almost never watch English dubs unless there is absolutely no other option (such in a movie theatre). I buy anime and manga directly from Japan with few and infrequent exceptions.

I tend to like comedy, fantasy, romance, action and adventure in anime and manga.

I tend not to like melodrama, angst, violence for the sake of violence, moe for the sake of moe, sports, and “healing” tales in anime and manga.

But there are always exceptions.

When I watch the first episode of an anime I look for:

- Something unique in the story to intrigue me
- Something that I can relate to in the main characters
- Visuals that show that the artists are putting in some effort
- A sound track that appeals to my tastes in jazz and classical music

I don't often find all of the above in an anime, but do often enough to keep on trying new anime every new season.

Gosh... Thanks for notifying me everytime. Well, its finall ycoming to an end!

DisGuyLikesAnime | 07-11-14, 3:50 PM
Thanks for telling me. I'll read it soon.

GodlyKyon | 06-20-14, 10:19 PM
Yeah... Apparently the sales were really low, in the 2-3k range for each volume... NOt too surprised since the show was really no different from the vast majority of the other harem romantic comedy out there, except it was in the manga.... In my opinion, if there were to add the more serious elements into the show, it could have done better. Also, they didn't even add Darlene in the first sereis!! Can you believe that!???

SO yeah... Maybe a 2 cour redo is the best for the series.

GodlyKyon | 06-15-14, 3:53 PM
Thanks for notifying me... Do you think there would bea second season?

dchoy | 06-12-14, 1:09 PM
Thanks, just read it. Only a few more months before the conclusion.

Thanks so much for posting summaries of Sankarea raw chapters! They're great and make waiting for chapters less tedious.

Hyunsuchu | 04-04-14, 2:33 PM
Forsure dude! I just thought I would suggest something! Any good anime that youd recommend?

Hyunsuchu | 04-03-14, 10:24 PM
Hey I was looking at the list of things you said you liked in your about me and I completely suggest watching Baccano!

Sometimes I'm glad I'm a packrat with them. I don't always read all the series in a magazine but sometimes years later I decide I would like to read them. Even if I read them cover to cover, I wouldn't necessarily remember them enough, I like to re-read them before anime adaptations come out and it sometimes takes 4-5 years and by then I've forgotten. I suppose I could just watch the anime in that case...

I also feel a bit silly buying tankobons and not reading them because I've read the magazine already. But I suppose that does keep them in mint condition... except they do sometimes add little extras so I do have to crack them open for the atogaki at least.

hpulley | 03-30-14, 5:42 PM
No, I didn't realize that as I don't buy many magazines anymore, just Earth Star Comics. Just running out of places to put those "Japanese telephone books" and I can't bear to simply recycle them. And I need another series to read like I need another hole in my head so unless I hear really good things I will just try to keep up with my current reading list (which I'm not, behind... behind...).

But thanks for letting me know!

Viz recently tweeted that they had translated their latest volume of Happy Marriage and said, "It's in plastic... you know what _that_ means!" implying sex of course. So I thought this might be a particularly fanservicy volume of SankaRea but not so. There was some of course but there has been much more in the past.

hpulley | 01-16-14, 6:34 PM
Just got my copy of Sankarea 9. It was wrapped in plastic which made me expect epic fanservice or a bonus card or something but... no to both of those, just plastic wrapped for some reason.

I don't read it monthly so if the end of chapter 47 is there, I couldn't tell.

Now the wait for volume 10!
