/r/anime's reaction to criticism is...frustrating, to say the least. Apparently I "spout ridiculou hot takes all over the sub to draw attention to myself" since I sometimes criticize a show that the sub froths at the mouth over. I'm sure you understand. People reeeeeeally love Bunny Girl Senpai over there.

That's a fine idea, although at that point the 1997 anime is a bit redundant, and not as much worth watching. I loved it when I first watched it, but it doesn't hold up if you read the manga first; some things are skipped that are crucial to the main character's character background. There isn't much animation to speak of, just a lot of well utilized beautiful still frames. Also I'm not sure where you are on the sub vs dub debate (I'm guessing you're a sub only guy), but if you're open to it the English voices fit the characters better and really bring them to life.

Really the only thing that the anime doesn't have that the manga doesn't is the fantastic soundtrack. Here is an example of the best piece from it:

On a first listen it may sound like it doesn't fit a medieval dark action-fantasy-military drama, but the soundtrack bizarrely fits the anime incredibly well and elevates it. I like listening to it to read the manga as well.

I admit, I'm a bit disappointed that you tried the universally panned 2016 Berserk anime but not the amazing manga or 1997 anime...might still not be your thing, but I hope you give either one a shot in the future, and the 2016 anime didn't sour you to the franchise forever.

As someone who is 10 episodes into Steins;Gate 0 and whom gave the original the same score as you, what made you drop 0? Thus far, it's just kind of average with nothing too terrible as far as I'm concerned.

Hey, is it alright if I make a couple recommendations to you based on what I think you'd like?

Definitely check out Texhnolyze. I think you might like that one quite a bit.

Also if I may butt in on a conversation, Steins;Gate 0's suckiness was a little predictable unfortunately if you look at the director of 0 and compare them to the director of the original :/

One has a far better track record than the other. As an interesting coincidence, Steins;Gate director also directed Texhnolyze.

Man good thing dropping Steing;Gate 0. It was trash. Btw you've repeatedly been picking bad shows to watch. Why not watch something good next?

Well said man! I've met Fleure before. I'll sometimes ask her for book advice because she's read easily 10 times as much as I have. She's like the great Jedi master of MAL's bibliophiles. I am among her more obnoxious young padawans.

So I see. My fault for putting my nose into conversations I wasn't invited in. My apologies. Which pseudo critics attack Ebert though? I've honestly heard little else than praise for the man. Sure he goofed up every once and while and he once gave a higher rating to Spawn than A Clockwork Orange, but we're all human. He generally did a wonderful job of backing up his opinions. I don't have your film school experience, so to me film is even more subjective. I honestly lack the criteria and tools to measure film in any kind of objective sense. For example, I couldn't write an essay on why Tarkovsky's cinematography is better than Kurosawa's or vice versa. I'm just an amateur admirer of film.

Also, solid Letterbox choices! My own Letterbox is horribly neglected. I FINALLY got one last month, but I've been very lazy about updating all the movies I've seen. I'm 30 so naturally I've seen a lot of movies.
literaturenerd Oct 20, 1:11 PM
So what exactly do you mean by Ebert's visual illiteracy? How do your film aesthetics differ? Not that I'm offended or anything. I've always felt Ebert was a bit overrated as a critic here in America.
