I appreciate the kind words. LotGH requires a substantial investment and it isn't for everyone, but I found it to be a rare example of something being exactly as great as everyone says it is, so I believe it's worth it.

Life happened, huh. Same. I hope you managed to get into a field you find worth investing your time in. I agree with your no-anime-on-phone policy. I personally couldn't watch it there even if I wanted to. I'm very blind. I find myself strictly watching anime on my PC. Downloading anime became all too convenient for me. The same goes goes for manga.

I, too, believe that Sangatsu is one of the best anime to come out this decade. I feel the same for the mangal.
I highly suggest watching or reading Honey and Clover. It is done by the same author as Sangatsu, and one of my favorite josei manga to date.

The ecchi scenes in Sundome were some of my favorite parts, too. So many other ecchi follow the safe tropes all too often so, yeah, Sundome is definitely a breath of fresh air. One of my gripes with Sundome, though, is the art. More specifically, the character designs of all the male secondary characters. I believe the author does this on purpose, which I don't find bad in itself, it just doesn't resonate with my eye balls. But, I wouldn't have it any other way, either. The expressions were killer, and had me laughing more than I expected going into it.
(Glad to know we share the same taste in a woman's proportions, lol.)

Changing the subject here, are you into books, or any other type of media?

Hey dude. I fell off anime too, I understand the late replies haha. Simply slow-reading manga and focusing on the studies.
Not much else has happened in my life other than that.
How about you?

Yeah, finally got around to finishing it. I went WAY beyond my expectations.
I thought I'd love it before i went in since the manga had blown me away, but, my god, SHAFT.
Really looking forward to that season 3.

And I see you finished Sundome. Weird read, huh?
What did you think of it?

Aw that's okay! That's completely understandable. I'm sure it gets busy with college, hehe. Getting a part-time job is always good for experience and stepping forth into a new direction. Getting some money along the way is important of course, especially with the world revolving around money nowadays. Getting a job also built my confidence as a person.

I was planning to watch Bloom into you and After the Rain, as both of the plots are something that intrigue me. Glad to see that you enjoy those series, I'll be watching maybe some time over the next term, since I'll have some more free time this time around. I managed to set my schedule to have free days on Tuesdays and Thursdays solely, so I can take a break here and there, haha! Term's looking good, and I just recently applied to plenty of internships.

Everything's gotten better as the times have passed, honestly. In having a ridiculous(ly low!) amount of time from september - november, I was trying to write a 60+ page paper for my finance course. In that time, it opened my eyes how little think of my personal time.

Have you ever met those people that complain about not being invited, but even when you invited them multiple times, they don't do anything with you? It's a toxic experience! I've opened my schedule a bit more even with the part time jobs so I can have some time for myself. I was expanding my horizons and seeing what the people I constantly made effort in seeing would do for me. A lot of them just walked out of my life when it was inconvenient for them, so there's an obvious answer there.

I work two part-time jobs, both are waiters at two different restaurants. Taking the usual three courses per term like I did before. Everything is honestly going very well this term, compared to last term! (December-February compared to september-november)

I've been watching the latest season without catching up to other anime, honestly. This season has a lot of interesting picks for the start of 2019, and it's only the first month. Neverland, Kaguya-sama, boogiepop, and other shows.

No problem! Whenever you feel like it, just give it a shot. It's really a short read, I finished it in less than a week. The art is quite amazing and immersive you'll lose yourself in it and the chapters will flow very fast. That was the case for me at least, and I see no reason why it doesn't apply to you too. But in any case, read it when you really want to, so you can appreciate it better.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm not really into publishing manga lately because I prefer to tackle finished stuff on my plan to read list. But I'll definitely give it a try later on, maybe at the same time I start Bloom Into You (somewhere after the season finish).But yuri is a genre that relies much on clichés, but from what you've said both this rec and Bloom seem to escape that and actually focus more on developing a more organic romance.

Well, I don't consider Nausicaä a long read to be honest, is barely seven volumes long. Other highly acclaimed manga like Monster and Punpun have double the volumes for example. And honestly I don't think I can give you an advice on that matter. When I'm into a manga I read it quite fast regardless of the length; I don't even look at how much I have left or how much I have read, I just enjoy it as I go. If you feel like completing long manga is a drag, then maybe you're not that into it. I suggest you to not force yourself or find a story that really grabs you.

Aye bro! All is good. I also fell out of anime for a bit. Only truly saw hataraku saibou, rewatched lain, and just started irozuku right now.

And aye, good luck on your studies bro, what Uni did you enter to? And what anime you on?
Valkeiser Oct 17, 2018 9:22 PM
Oh, I can really relate to that to be honest. With how complicated my working scheduled turned out to be until recently, I barely had time to sit and watch many episodes, let alone be up to date with seasonals. That's why I decided to put on hold to all my completed anime watching, limit myself with the amount of seasonals I plan to watch, and use the small free times I have during the day to read instead. I find it very easy now to find a time to read a few chapters or even a full volume on my tablet than watching an episode or two of something. And as I said, there's a lot of great stories out there that might never be adapted, so I want to read most of them while I still have interest in the medium.

As for a recommendation... the most obvious one would be my top favorite Nausicaa. Is easily the most similar work to Shinsekai when it comes to build a world and use it along with its story to explore different ideas, theories and philosophies and comment on them. However, something I can strongly recommend you is a short one called Children of the Sea. The main reason is because of how it builds towards and utilizes the supernatural element of its mystery to create a setting where both science and mysticism coexist and overlap to the point of becoming one and the same. It's also a visual delight and portrays mesmerizing underwater scenarios. Anyway, this would be my honest recommendation. Hope you can find the time to read it and share me your thoughts.

Ah, and I did notice the contradiction in Yuu's character but was waiting for the story to develop more before making any conclusion. Glad to hear from you that I was partially correct about it. And don't worry, is very likely that I will end up reading the manga. I'm just waiting for the season to end and let some more chapters come out.

Hey there!

Good to know you still visit this place, even if it's every now and then. Since last time we talked I've been quite lazy with my anime watching, just some seasonals I'm interested, and trying not to pick more than ten to follow. I'm focusing more on my dusty manga list that I had abandoned for such a long time. I'm really glad I did that, because I have discovered some very good titles, hence the recent additions on my favorites.

By the way, noticed that big nine on Flip Flappers, glad you enjoyed it that much. Maybe you will end up liking Revue Starlight that much, given it has some similarities (but more so with Ikuhara's works). I certainly enjoyed it enough to temporarily add it to my favs, but in the end I love Lain more so she returned to her rightful place.

Oh, and given you're a big fan, I wanted to know your opinion of the Bloom adaptation. So far it's been it's ok as an anime, just wished they were more bold visually like in the scene of the train kiss for example. Nonetheless is not the standard yuri cheerful story, it takes itself a bit serious and I appreciate that. If all ends well, I will pick up the manga aftet the season is done.

And how have you been lately? Been months since we last talked.

Hi! I loved the TV series, but I felt like Rebellion was more creative? The changes in the art style and the use of real life objects stood out to me alot. Many I know have called it "The movie on drugs" and honestly that kinda fits :D
The OST was beautiful and powerful. The use of Motif was brilliant and it made the OST stand out alot more. I'd even consider Rebellion one of Kajiura's best works.
One of the things I also love about Rebellion is the rewatchability it offers. I think that I have seen Rebellion about 8 times now and each time I notice something new. The thought and care that went into the movie is just amazing. The ending is controversial and came off as an confusing plottwist just meant for shock factor, but after rewatching it, I started to notice all the foreshadowing and symbolism for it.
I personally love the ending now. I can even think of it as a perfect ending for the series.
After first watching it, I couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks. That was the first time an anime had managed to move me that much and just for that I can say that it's my favourite anime.
