Yo. I've actually rewritten an old ass review of mine. I'm 90% certain you didn't like Black Butler, and now I agree with you... somewhat.

I'd really appreciate some feedback bro.

Yeah, but new chapters are being constantly released and given that out of 426 chapters 307 is translated (the newest one came out two days ago) I think that It'll be done before I catch up.

Fine,not much has had changed since we last talked, hbu?
I think that the premise of the show is really interesting, especially the concept of the dolls, I even enjoyed the chessy monologues given by Narumi, it had few weaker moments (such as second part of second episode which was rather boring and predictable) but overall I wouldn't drop the series if not for the fact that apparently is a complete adaptation of the manga, and I'd rather just read it, especially when it's consider to be way superior to the anime.

Any creative writing is a handful especially reviews that have to be personal but also judged based on certain standards. As someone who writes anime reviews on my native tongue I can definitely feel your struggle, so just keep giving it your best shot each and every time

Yes, she really is a weird case, usually I like characters with more depth but her design combined with her attitude and ideals make my critic brain melt for her. I'm holding on to the Innocent franchise for as long as I can cause I really enjoyed it but I have to finish it sometime.
Thanks, I'm very particular with what I like tbh.
That's good to know, my country had it considerably easy too.
Your review was pretty accurate still, it gave a pretty realistic take on what to expect from the anime but I assume no one is that proud of their early anime phase, it takes quite some time to cultivate representative taste.

Makes sense!
My life follows in true 2020 fashion, aka it's a mess but I'm pulling through. Hope you are safe during those trying times.
I found you through your Ie Naki ko Remy review. It seemed fairly compatible with what I look for from a review so I decided to check your profile. You seemed to have a plethora of interesting anime for someone to check on your lists and your profile picture is Marie so I thought I should just add you in order to check the lists more thoroughly!

Hello! Surprised to see you talked to me :p

That's the thing that was kinda holding me off from Vinland Saga., Precedent shows when previously unadapted manga gets a show in the current year, the production values tend to be dogshit. Glad to know that it's the opposite this time around.
phs_togusa May 28, 1:27 PM
Is the Vinland Saga adaptation any better than the Berserk adaptations at all?

The first half of BoJack S1 is the hardest to get through since it's so cookie-cutter in terms of animated sitcom stuff but it rewards you for your patience as the latter half of the season and then the rest of the show going forward is dedicated to showing that BoJack's actions aren't easily forgiven and that whoever gets hurt or whatever gets damaged stays hurt/damaged. If you want a contrast as for how the atmosphere in the show changes over time, look no further than the treatment that BoJack's childhood gets in S1 and compare that to S5.

Honestly, I have been wondering if I was watching the wrong shows since I was going off of workplace hype more than anything else. IRL word-of-mouth is much more potent than hype from a website I barely use as much as I once did. Of course even when I /did/ follow seasonal shows closely on social media, the end result was still the same.

I actually finished the first season of the Fruits Basket reboot, which I was honestly really surprised by. Call me Mr. Pessimist but I've lost all the trust I once had in Funimation once they started shoehorning social commentary and dated references in their dubs starting with when Prison School came out. It does my heart good to know that Laura Bailey, Jerry Jewell, et al are all still normal people and that they didn't fuck up the dub. Here's to hoping they continue that momentum with S2. As far as the reboot itself is concerned, it retreads the same path that the first series did but it's nowhere near as painfully slow as the original was. Plus, the foreshadowing to later parts of the manga was a really nice touch. Not too heavy-handed, not too subtle. Insert perfectly balanced Thanos meme here.

Other than that, there hasn't been much anime aside from Fruits Basket and finishing up shows I've started years ago like Maison Ikkoku and KareKano. Lately, my interests have been geared toward shows like BoJack Horseman because it's actually able to tell a serious story without devolving into theatrics or melodrama. I've pretty much gotten to the point where I just don't get joy out of watching most anime because I'm just so burnt out on the cliches, trends, and padding that seem to permeate the industry at large. Before the quarantine, I had a lot of coworkers who kept up with seasonal shit so I'd watch an episode or two of something like Goblin Slayer and Railgun whenever I was on lunch. But of course, no joy, no mild amusement, just sheer boredom for the 22-24 minutes of each series I watched. Not even for snark bait material.

Idk I'd like to think that I'm not a difficult person to entertain and that it's the industry's fault for putting out year after year of rubbish but sometimes I just wish I could actually get into the shows everyone else is in an uproar about. It would be nice to be a part of the discussion again, but what else is there to say that hasn't already been said before?

Eh, I've been hanging on. Got furloughed, which sucks but at least my unemployment application got pushed through (after like... a month and a half of waiting). I've been slowly knocking out more of my watch list.
phs_togusa May 23, 2:13 PM
Yo Hatul, long time no talkie bro. You holding up alright in these trying times?
bmoore07 May 6, 5:25 AM
It's just for fun, but I think it might be useful to have someday.

I've been pretty well lately. I wanted to find something to occupy myself with during quarantine so I figured "why not pick up a new hobby?". I'm learning about sign language at the moment and I feel as though I'm doing a pretty decent job at it.
