About mecharobot
An active watcher since around 2005. Lately I started reading some manga too.

I like most genres, but prefer them to be set in fantasy, scifi or historic settings. Not so big on schools and romcoms.

I also like games. Mostly (J)RPGs but I do play all sorts of things. A list of those can be found here:

Some favorite games:

That he was, forgot about that haha.

Especially with technology nowadays, it'd be cool to see pre-rendered backdrops make a comeback or something. I guess they are with some PC games and the Kickstarter throwbacks, but yeah. Imagine at the resolutions we've got nowadays how rich stuff like that could look. I guess they'd have to be extra creative though since things are so open and 3D nowadays, but yeah. Definitely something I always like seeing in older stuff.

Echelon | 07-06-14, 9:16 AM
Agreed. There's a lot of JPRG's on the PS2 that I hear are great, but it's always been easier for me to go back to the PSX or SNES for more instead. I'd say the PSX has aged 10x better than the N64 to me over the years, since a lot of the games have pre rendered backdrops and such, they still look pretty good to me. But the N64 went the full 3D route and yeah... that framerate, the fog, etc haha.

There was a lot that could have gone wrong with Xenoblade for sure. Definitely has some MMO-isms about it, but the scope, the characters and plot, the music, etc all took it to another level. They definitely hit the right balance and X looks even better with the mech's coming back, the one thing Xenoblade lacked. Plus I just keep hearing Takahashi is taking this one more seriously... which I think is hilarious, because as simple as Xenoblade's story was, the execution and all was still miles better than most, so it was just fantastic. That stuff near the very end was out of this world. Did you play it in Japanese? Pretty cool Vegeta/Reinhard was Dunban.

Glad to see you appreciate all the Xeno's, since that's so rare haha. Yeah, I would say Xenosaga III is probably my favorite PS2 JRPG. I actually like II a lot now too, it took me a few tries and over the course of about 10 years to finally appreciate it, but I dig it now once a friend showed me how to handle the battle system. Kind of funny the game does a terrible job at that... when you really dig into it the battle system is actually fun and unique I thought. The plot focusing on Jr and Albedo was a highlight for me. Albedo not being much in III was a bit of a disappointment, but it had Dimitri instead who's nearly just as good.

The games aren't perfect (same with Xenogears), but damn the scope and depth is just nuts.

Echelon | 07-05-14, 9:00 PM
Haha, yeah the Korean names have been kind of tough too. A lot of them are 2-3 separate parts usually. Sometimes the subs don't help either... Jumong, Ju Mong, Ju-Mong, haha...

I still don't mind long JRPG's here and there, but I've never been into MMO's. So yeah I also like to keep moving and trying out other stuff, instead of just playing one game for months on end.

Suikoden 1-2 are the best in my book anyways. 3 I hear great things about, but the combat was really slow paced and got to me so I never got far. I'd like to give it another shot. Always heard bad things about 4, but I'd like to check it out myself. 5 is the one I'd recommend on the PS2 if you ever get to it. It had a lot of ties to the first two games, lots of recurring characters again, a cool castle, and yeah it was great.

Xenogears is my favorite though, saw you had that listed. I'm a rare fan of all the Xeno's though. I'd argue Xenosaga Ep3's second disc is quite possibly better than most of Xenogears. The chain reaction of final dungeons and every major rivalry coming to an end, it was insane and the scope of the story was even bigger than Xenogears hehe. Love Tetsuya Takahashi, can't wait for the new X game coming. Sounds a bit more ambitious than Xenoblade story wise, so that should be exciting. Still loved Xenoblade though, damn that OST was insane.

Yo! I think I've stumbled upon your profile a lot and always assumed you were on my list or something, see your posts in the classic club and whatnot. Awesome tastes.

Three Kingdoms 2010, is that Chinese?

I'm finally taking the plunge lately myself. Gu Family Book was really cool with some fantasy elements and a stronger emphasis on romance, it was like live action Fushigi Yuugi, if you've heard of it (shoujo that feels like shounen haha, amazing villain too).

But this Jumong... is on another level. I feel like I'm spoiling myself and already hitting up the LOGH of KDrama or something. This is like the closest thing to Suikoden I've ever seen, it's just crazy. Awesome video-gameish music too at times.

Well I'm new to all this so hardly the expert lol, but this KDrama stuff to me feels a lot bigger budget than the Japanese stuff I've seen. Also Gu and Jumong especially, are actually not episodic in the least. No way could someone just jump into the middle of this, so it's got a monstrous amount of plot/character development and continuous storytelling which is usually more my thing. I never would have guessed this months ago, but I might be more into KDrama than the Japanese stuff if this keeps up haha. I hear most of the historical KDrama are pretty high quality and there's a ton, so I've got a lot of options.

I tried searching their database for some sci-fi stuff, but yeah didn't really come up with anything noteworthy. But I already watch enough anime as is so I've got all that, I guess I can look forward to JDrama for some romance/comedy or something and the KDrama for this epic historical stuff.

Back on the Chinese, those languages are a bit harder to approach for me haha. I've seen some John Woo films and that's fine, but yeah. Jumping into Korean though was a very easy transition to make, it seems to be a pretty smooth language like Japanese to me. I dig it.

Do I like it? Obviously yes, I'll be re-watching the series with an arc per day pace. Watching the anime is like a pure psychedelic experience, the colorful and lively backgrounds, the use of camera angles, the eerie yet beautiful music, the story shrouded in mystery, thematically surrounded around human nature, is explored through the characters' perspective with the effective use of imagery and the enigmatic main character who further adds to the atmosphere itself. Hopefully the arcs remain as consistently impressive as I remember them to be, in terms of the pitch-perfect direction.

It took me a long time to beat the third one, too. Several years of me setting it down after playing for a small amount of time. I'm looking forward to the fourth one, though. I'll buy it at the end of the year.

AlabastreAizo | 06-16-14, 7:35 AM
Was Harlock 2013 no good? I loved Ace Attorney 1-3, but haven't picked up Dual Destinies yet. I've got other games I need to beat first.

Yeah, there are always other good things to do, though. I've hardly been watching anything because my schedule doesn't leave me with much time to myself; the time I do have, I spend on guitar and studies, or in my true "free time," video games, lately.

What do you do up North in the Summer for fun? You know what I do in Japan? Sweat. It's Hell here. I wish I didn't have be outside as much as I am.

AlabastreAizo | 06-16-14, 6:12 AM
Have you watched anything good lately?

>> My voting system sucks, but I'm too lazy to rework it.
My votes are far from ideal too, and I can forget why I rated some series so high.

>> I do like other things, but this kind of tranquil/spiritual/relaxing/slow genre of storytelling is probably my favorite one.
I completely agree with you in this way. I haven't watched MariMite or Emma but now I'm sure they are worth seeing. About Kaleido: one can't exactly say that it belongs to some definite genre, but it makes the series way better. (and Aria-like ending too).

>>How's Happiness Charge?
I can hardly say anything certainly about series without watching even third of them. But there are some interesting points in it: Cure Fortune who totally hates the main characters and can't forgive their cowardness (and we don't know anything else about her, it's just more intriguing), Precures of elder seasons introducing themselves and congratulating us, an interesting idea about International Precures, Honey's transformation and ending are very nice too.

And well, I don't know much about yor favorite games but Shadow of the Colossus soundtrack is really awesome.

Oh my, your tastes are amazingly similar to mines!
It seems I've met yousometimes already. Did we have a conversation, or do I invite you to the club, or something else?

But why?

Romario3210 | 05-17-14, 11:24 AM
Thanks for the comment.

I'm enjoying Marimite, it's a very interesting character study in a peculiar setting. The sisterly bonds have a sense of intimacy I've hardly seen in anime but without going overboard and remaining extremely subtle. I particularly love the slow and relaxing atmosphere, the graceful music and how the differences in etiquette as reflected by the characters provide such a unique experience compared to other anime. I can't say I'm a fan of how we get the backgrounds for the characters like Sachiko so quickly leading to a somewhat melodramatic resolution with her cousin. I think the viewer should have gotten more time to be familiarized with the characters before tackling any huge drama. I really liked the dating episodes in the first season though, we see the differences between Yumi and Sachiko's upbringing explored now with Sachiko being so oblivious to minor things like shopping and ordering food. It's hilarious. It's still a bit hard to remember all the character names right now but I suppose it won't be a problem by the time I'm done with the series. Can't say much about the second season right now.

What do you think of the GTM retcon in FSS?

heittomerkki...mitähän mä ajattelin, lainausmerkit siis xD

Zaiba | 05-03-14, 7:55 AM
Joo, onhan tämä anime ollut jo silleen pidempäänkin harrastus, tosin pääsi moneksi vuodeksi jäämään vähemmälle ihmissuhteiden yms. takia, mutta nyt on taas kuulunut isompana osana omaa elämää ja tyytyväinen siitä olen. :)

Tuo vanha onkin hyvä laittaa heittomerkkeihin, itse en niin kovin vanhaksi itseäni vielä tunne :) Mutta mukava toki että muitakin kasarilapsia täältä löytyy ;D
