Nice reviews, man.

Haha, thanks, you too, your profile picture is... unique? I guess. :P

Nice Nazo No Kanojo X review!
Fall Jun 24, 2016 1:55 PM
I believe I have a somewhat unorthodox way of reviewing things; rather than focusing on aspects such as story, characters, art and sound, I talk predominately about themes, how they relate to the narrative, characters, and atmosphere because they're more important to me. I don't tend to write reviews for 'unimpressive' shows or manga (that don't have particularly deep themes or characters), so I end up talking at length about the themes and how they relate to the narrative without spoilers. My reviews are essentially a collection of thoughts that aim to justify why I liked or disliked a certain series with my recommendation (or lack thereof) for said series tacked onto it -- they're a way for me to reflect on any given series and feel justified in my fondness or distaste for it; it just so happens that they're very suitable for review format. It might sound bad to say this, but the public is an afterthought -- I write my reviews for me. I hope you enjoy them if you do end up reading them (they still need some editing here and there (both to update my opinions and my writing), but they're 95% perfectly readable if they aren't already fluid).

Ahh, I see. Here's hope for BBCode in the future!

Hana to Alice: Satsujin Jiken is an animated prequel to a live-action coming-of-age film that came out back in 2004, so I'm not sure if that fits your criteria. I'm a bigger fan of the anime, personally (I'm an hour through the live-action film atm, but I paused it and haven't gotten back to it for the past two months). You don't need the knowledge of the live-action film to watch the sequel, and you won't be spoiled on the prequel if you watch the sequel, so any order is fine. If that's not suitable to your criteria, then I suggest Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, an anime that came out in 2012. It's my second favourite anime ever and I have yet to find anything really like it. The synopsis:

For years, declining birth rates have forced what's left of the human race to cede more and more territory to other beings who have appeared to take advantage of the emptying ecological niche. Now, only a handful of humans remain among the remnants of civilization and Earth is dominated by faeries —tiny, ten-inch tall creatures of surprising intelligence. But humanity's importance isn't over quite yet, as young Watashi learns as she makes the decision to return to her hometown and assume her grandfather's position as an arbitrator between the races. Unfortunately, the job isn't going to be anywhere near as simple as she expected, and it's going to take a wisdom far beyond her years to achieve her most important mission.


To quote myself in the past:

Sounds a bit like a somewhat heavy drama, right? It's not. At least, not most of the time. When it wants to do drama, it does it extremely well. Jintai is chock-full of cynicism, satire, and witty humour. The protagonist, in particular, is one of the most unique, interesting, fleshed-out and well-developed characters I've seen in any form of media. And her name? Watashi. Her real name is never mentioned; this is something that remains true for most of the cast. Her grandfather is called 'grandfather'. Her assistant is called 'assistant'. The village chief? 'Village chief'.

Jintai is peculiar, but this is a good thing. Its humour breaks free from the blob of repetitive, lost-in-translation comedy seen in most anime. It's also surreal, though it's not off-putting. Jintai has a lot of depth to it, with a bunch of non-preachy social commentary. But if you don't care for social commentary, the comedy aspect is just as entertaining. There's an abundance of deadpan humour lined with a healthy amount of cynicism, and the majority of the comedy comes from one of the greatest characters in anime: Watashi. Whether it's a surreal comedy or a creative social comedy you want, each one is peppered with just the right amount of cynicism to entertain you without feeling negative or pessimistic.

Jintai is an intelligent series with plenty of creativity and enjoyment to be found. If you haven't seen Jintai yet, I strongly urge that you do so as soon as possible. I can't recommend Jintai highly enough.


I'm something of a big fan of Jintai, though I don't want to hype it up too much.

Thanks for the recommendation but it will be difficult to even start reading manga as i want to start but never end up starting with my first, the only thing i can get myself to read from time to time are Marvel/DC/StarWarsEU/TWD comics, i even have manga sites bookmarked but as i mentioned, never end up starting for some reason.


If you're into novels, then you should be fine with Kamisu Reina, because it reads, for all intents and purposes, exactly the same way. There aren't any illustrations either; just words. I'm not a particularly big fan of manga myself (I simply don't like reading stuff in comic format), though I will stick my neck out for a particularly unique series.

Thank you very much!

I abuse BBCode whenever I can; a few italics here, bold some stuff over there, underline this comment, make this phrase a bit bigger, etc. That's fair enough, though I'm sure I can be somewhat of a condescending prick at times. I did check the first few comments on your profile to see if I was being redundant, but I'll dig a bit deeper next time!

Recently, I brought some of my MAL reviews over to Goodreads (they're a bit more critical over there; some of my favourite light novels didn't get a single 5-star rating!) because they do allow you to use BBCode (or the HTML equivalent), and it actually looks really nice! It's a shame that I've never seen any reviewers on Goodreads use the function as of yet, though. My reviews tend to be as lengthy as or even lengthier than Archaeon's reviews; for stuff I really like, I typically end up with a 1,400-2,400-word write-up.

It is a lot of effort to edit 100 reviews, especially if there's no ETA as to when BBCode will be brought back (if ever). I didn't know they had any intention of bringing it back at the time I wrote the comment, but I'm glad it's not off the table.

Also, while I'm at it, I'd like to recommend my personal favourite anime (and favourite anime film), Hana to Alice: Satsujin Jiken. I wrote a 2,000-word review for it if you want to get a feel for the film first (though my opinions are somewhat outdated). The film's an hour and a half long and something you can sit down and unwind to on a late afternoon -- that's how I watched it.

Oh, and if you're willing to get into the light novel scene, one of my favourites is the Kamisu Reina Series...which I've also written a shorter review for. It's quite different from the norm, and it probably wouldn't even be considered a light novel if it wasn't published under the Degenki Bunko label. If Oreimo, Haruhi Suzumiya, Hundred and all the other 'meh' light novels put you off the medium, I can assure you that it is absolutely nothing like them.

I was speaking from a similar (?) perspective, wherein I used BBCode in my reviews thinking that it was actually working for the week it was up, only to later realise that this wasn't the case at all. I didn't intend for it to come off as pretentious or condescending; a bit of my own humility bled into my comment, I suppose.

I wasn't aware that BBCode actually worked in the past, because you are the first reviewer i've come across who has surrounded their writing in BBCode, even fairly recently -- the more you know. It's interesting to hear about MAL's history that I wasn't around for, and I for one hope that BBCode is brought back one day.

I was simply notifying you that your BBCode wasn't functional, as I was unsure if you were aware of this. If I did come off as condescending and confrontational, I apologise.

BBCode doesn't work with reviews; you might want to get rid of it, because it doesn't actually bold or underline anything.

It would be my pleasure to recommend you some anime but you have watched a considerable amount more than I, so you see it would be somewhat difficult for me to recommend anything you haven't already watched if not at least heard of.
WrathIsThySin May 16, 2016 3:07 AM
Yeah I agree with the bob helicopter shit being stupid. I do wish he'd gone with Mika off into the sunset that ending was a bit... meh but I am sucker for the whole "I'll do anything for my friend" bullshit. I can't help it. It would have been a perfect show to me if it weren't for some of the over the top sci-fi stuff and the end (kind of). It would have been cool if the sci-fi was still there but toned down. Anyhow thanks for the anime suggestions man appreciate it definitely gonna check them out. I think I'm gonna have to check out the game. I kept thinking all throughout the anime how crazy it was that its based on a game.
WrathIsThySin May 11, 2016 6:09 AM
Thanks :) I am really into shows that question our humanity or that tend to go for that psychological side of things and that show how we can easily discard our humanity for the sake of another human, goal, dream or even a desire dark or pure.

Thanks, man. *Goku thumbs up*

your review of Momo Kyun Sword is all fucked up, might want to take a look at it
