What anime do you want a review for ?
aikaflip Feb 5, 2018 5:48 AM
Hey! I've been doing okay. Just busy trying to expand my skill set. My previous line of work isn't as profitable as it used to be. >_< Are you still doing illustration?

If the spoiler is about the story, I should wait until the show is done airing. I literally know nothing about what may or may not happen, and I've really enjoyed being surprised. What I do hope doesn't happen is that Kondou ends up in a serious relationship with Tachibana. Firstly, I don't see how that could be believably pulled off without making Kondou look irresponsible. Secondly, it would make me cringe into a black hole. In a perfect anime world, Tachibana would end up with Kyan, the dark-skinned track runner, but that'll never happen...

Amberleh! It's been awhile. I hope you've been well. I noticed that you're watching Koi wa Ameagari no You ni. What do you think about it so far? Aside from the occasional male gaze, the anime seems to be handling the story with decorum.

Thank you so much for making the feminist club. I want to post on MAL, but usually feel so isolated; for obvious reasons. It was such a nice surprise to see such a group on this site.

Hello one question. I would like to know your opinion. Do you think it's okay that being a feminist, I like the super extreme hentai? As with violations, blood, body modifications etc ..

    "+1 to Jojo's, Nana, and Paradise kiss (keep in mind the latter two are VERY VERY VERY shoujo so if you want action, these do not fit the bill. Jojo does.)
    +100000000000000000000000000000000 to Utena but I'm obviously extremely biased towards my favorite series."

Lol, that's a lot of zeroes :) 10^32 actually. I recently finished my first re-watch of Utena and easily confirmed my 9 score for it. Then, as now, my main complaint is I think it could have been cut down to 30-ish episodes; some of the Nanami episodes were over-the-top; a kitten got drowned <rage>; Anthy's over-the-top backstab; and I can't help being annoyed at anime that are difficult to understand (so much hidden/metaphorical stuff). So all-told a -1 for all of that.

But against those (personal) drawbacks is so much other cool stuff it's impossible to list without missing something: the shadow theater girls, ALL the characters, the art, the music, the writing, the humor. I so wished to give it a 10 and stick it in my top 10 but can't ignore the personal beefs I listed earlier. Even so its face is pressed against the window at 11th.

"Little one, who bears up alone in such deep sorrow, never lose that strength or nobility".

You've prob seen it but this cracks me up:

I think Oniisama e is all hand drawn and hand painted, which makes it even more impressive. Ah, the glory days. *weeps* If you like that director's work, you may also want to check out the Black Jack OVA. It's super nice to look at, too.

Damn, I'm really sorry about your losses. I never know what to say in these situations. >_< The Buddhist in me might say, "letting go is a part of life", but that's kinda cold and unhelpful advice to give to someone still in mourning. I just hope you keep your head up, and that the good eventually overrides the bad.

"WELL SINCE YOU ASKED YA BETTER GET SOME POPCORN".
Hahaha, it's cool.

Trump is trash.

And I've been okay. I'm still feeling lethargic after a surgery I had in April. It's a little frustrating feeling sluggish all the time, but I'll adjust to it, or maybe I'll get my energy back—one or the other. It's not a big deal. Work has picked up, and I'm almost done with anime. Practically everything is trash now, and not even the good kind.
aikaflip Jul 14, 2017 7:22 PM
It's good to hear that you're enjoying it. Oniisama e is one of my favorites. I've seen it twice now, which I hardly ever do with a show, let alone one with 39 episodes. I loved everything: the layered writing, the stylish directing, the enchanting background music. And don't get me started on the art. I mean, look at this. These are wall-worthy.


Another thing that's appreciated is how it challenges gender norms and social hierarchies, which anime sometimes tries to explore, but rarely with the sophistication of this series.

I could go on, but I'll stop myself. But yeah, Oniisama e is pretty good, lol.

How have you been?
aikaflip Jul 13, 2017 9:30 PM
Whoa, you're watching Oniisama e. That's such a gloriously melodramatic series. Very detailed art, too. What do you think of it so far?
