Haha thanks for telling me that it's the second season. I would've been lost watching second season first. Anyway, hearing from you that it's the best drama anime got me hype as hell lol.

Ah, its super macho animation style threw me off. It indeed is pretty recent. I've added it to my PTW.

I see you're watching Quan Zhi and SNK. Haha.
tbh the second season of SNK was a disappointment to me, plot wise. But I absolutely loved Quan Zhi, even tho I'm a complete dunce when it comes to gaming. I really liked God Xiu's character - so very real. Doesn't adhere to any typical anime character archetypes. That was a breath of fresh air for me. I can go on and on about that dude :p

I've heard that, but I'm not particularly fond of old animation styles, so it'll be a while till I watch it, to be honest.
Sonal1988 Jun 4, 9:27 PM
I have yet to watch JoJo, but yeah, I get what you're saying.
Sonal1988 Jun 3, 12:00 PM
I don't like her dependence on Eren> Me too!

I think it's just bad writing> For me, it's just who she is and her background sort of justifies that obsession. I wouldn't call it bad writing, but to each their own!

it is short for Alexander.> Ah, now here's a name that I've heard before. Haha. Should have started your sentence with that :p

true that people who watch anime get a bit of a bad rep> Don't I know it! At least you people are young and your interest in anime is justified. Think of oldies like us and what we go through :p

I went through your profile description. Ahahahahahahaha it's hilarious!! 😂😂😂😂
Is your name really Xander? What does it mean?
And you're wrong when you say chicks don't dig anime. 70% of my friend list consists of girls, all of them obsessed with one anime or the other. And I do mean obsessed, in that truest meaning of the word

Nah man, I'm with you 100%. Plus, for a college girl (I dunno how old that woman is) she sure has the voice of a 14 year old. Which annoys the fuck outta me. Why do these people need to make women have the voices of prepubescent girls? Gotta admit tho - when I read your review, I was 95% expecting you to be a girl. Guys aren't this sensitive towards sexism, as you very well know. Plus, sexism has become to acceptable today that such poor portrayals of women is considered standard, which is why not many people bat an eyelid when they come across such characters.
Haha. Needless to say, it was a very pleasant surprise to see a young male have such strong views. Kudos!

And out of curiosity - what are your views on the portrayal of women in SNK? Especially Mikasa.
Sonal1988 May 31, 8:05 AM
I liked your Haikyuu review's inclusion of severe sexism in the anime. I'm 11 eps in and even I could tell how skewed the portrayal of women was.

Suuuuuuure! I love reading reviews. Especially awesome ones. ^_^

Ah... sorry for the late reply, it's been months since the last time i logged in.
I've read your whole review, i understood what you're saying, and i don't hate you, i think you should read my comment one more time... i just hate your review on the 1st and 2nd season. For the third season we pretty much had the same opinion.
I realized that Haikyuu!! has flaws, but i got triggered by reading your review about the 1st and 2nd season, maybe it's because i'm a die hard fan of Haikyuu!!

Oh, thanks! I watched it quite a long time ago and did not remember this scene! I'll probably watch it again.

Nice Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu review.
AyameTenshi Mar 24, 1:17 AM
Hey! Just wanted to say I loved your review for Shouwa Genroku Rakugou Shinjuu!
Also where's the gif with the girl/doll from? Looks familiar but I've no clue what it might be.

Thanks for your reply.

I just thought I'd provide what people with no volleyball experience like me would probably think when watching the show since you were providing your viewpoints as an expert, some of which I thought were a bit too critical, but I understand now.

I was actually also around 15-16 when I watched the first season, but it wasn't too bad since I didn't know much about the sport. It certainly was amazing at creating the hype and atmosphere in my opinion. I think I might be too used to the usual anime amount of talking that as long as they weren't really intolerable, I wouldn't notice. Though recently, I noticed I've been skipping some of the talking-during-battles-and-repeated-flashbacks that state the obvious of quite a few new anime.

I've seen some episodes of Ping Pong, but I really couldn't bear some characters' personalities so I dropped it. (I forgot who)

I guess Kageyama's spinning setting was too exaggerated after all then...

I sort of based what I think was the level of high school volleyball on the volleyball team of my school, even though it was only mid prefecture level, through my friend, who was the captain of the girl's team.
Question: Are girl's and boy's volleyball levels really different? I never thought about that. Stupid me.

I still have doubts about the heights. I think 180-190 would already be exceptionally tall in Japan, as I've almost never seen a guy over 175 on the streets, but in the show, many teams have more than 3 members over 190.

Really enjoyed having this little opinion exchange.
