So you´ve been starting Gintama.
That´s great

Episode 6 was filler. I understand filler for Shonens and 26+ episode series but in a 13 episode series? Wasting time that could've been development worthy. Plus it has so little to do with the majority of the series. The fight scenes are pretty good, but I wonder if Kyo Ani was the best studio for this? It seems to want to be two separate shows. One trying to be something like say, Madoka Magica or Noragami (though the anime adaptation predates it) and one trying to be everything Kyo Ani like Clannad, Haruhi and Hyouka. I don't think it worked the best.

The movie makes the ending feel way less cheap, adds to some unexplained plot points and the main characters.

How was Ergo Proxy? I'm sure it was confusing but hopefully thinking about it, the show was worth it in the end.

You must've seen the dance now.

Also, New poll! Vote if you want to

Yep! Totally justified! Combined with Shirobako it was my 5th favorite anime of the year last year.

Kyoukai no Kanata is very unfortunate mediocrity. Kyo Ani brings the CUTE with the visuals but fails to grasp a consistent tone. Is it a dark fantasy with conspiracies and overcoming the thought of having killed someone? A light fantasy where killing colorful monsters nets you money bonuses? Or a typical school rom com with all the cliches you'd expect? Problem is that Kyo Ani isn't exactly an action based studio, as while the fight scenes that exist look pretty good, the show does all of the Kyo Ani cliches relying on over cuteness, high school clubs, four people ensemble, etc. Normally this is fine but doesn't work when considering the serious plot it wants to tell and how flat and dry the characters are. Most memorable scene from the show is a scene at the end of episode 6. You'll know the one.

The last few seconds are really dumb on their own, but I'd recommend following it up with the film.

Best cast in FE history. They really stepped up on the writing and character design after the last entry which was 6 years ago. Too bad Fates couldn't capture the same magic. Think of it this way: at least 95% of all the support conversations are great to watch and read in Awakening. In Fates, it's not even 10% because the characters are not as three-dimensional or developed. Doesn't help that no voices play during the conversations, really takes you out of the immersion. Admit the strategy elements and some of the story did get improved, but that's about it. Who are some of your waifus/husbandos from Awakening :D


Yeah, K-on was great in how it focused less on plot and more on just cute high school girls being moe and shit without being a one-trick pony. Probably one of the most fun series I'll ever watch, but nothing will be as fun as Baccano!. Wonder how Hibike will compare.

Happy New Year, Katzuki! I'll do my best for 2017. You be sure to do the same, and I'll root for ya with uni!

Take your time. I understand with college and all that.

2017 could not come soon enough. This year was pretty tough for a lot of people, what with politics and world events involved, and I've had my fair share of problems as well. What's your New Year's Resolution if you make any? Mine is to get back into society any way possible, whether by job or going outside more lol

Happy Holidays, Katzuki!

The final episode can be pretty hard to understand, but it provides a great conclusion for the series through Vincent's final line of accepting who he is, because the show as a whole was about searching for that part of yourself to see your "reason for living".

Planetes reminds me a lot of Shirobako in a sense, a good sense

Yes, the goals of cleaning up space garbage (reminds me of my least favorite Mario Galaxy mission) and creating an anime are totally different, but both shows are nice and something more in regards to showing attitudes in the workplace. The space setting gives the show a standout feature for other shows like it as far as mature plot ideas, and in regards to the animation it shows really well. Much like Hyouka, because the show doesn't have to conserve budget for flashy action scenes, they can have a lot of movement even at the more casual times, which helps not only to make the show look better but replicate the zero gravity feeling of being up in space. Holds up really well thirteen years later. Thanks Studio Sunrise! The characters are alright, but I'm sure they'll grow on me. Favorite so far is probably Fee. It's a show about dreams of many different kinds at the moment, a slice of life set in a space station that's pretty enjoyable so far. It was also directed by the guy who would later direct Code Geass.

When did you start with Fire Emblem? I started in 2005, when Sacred Stones and Path of Radiance came out. First playthrough on SS, all of my characters died before the final chapter, so I learned the hard way how to be a capable strategist XD

Haven't been watching too much anime lately, but have been slowly catching up on my episode intake everyday, so I've been stuck on LL for a while. Will finish tomorrow with the movie. Pretty good for a musical series led by women characters, though K-on has a good edge above it with animation, songs, the cast itself and a broader sense of fun. Also heard Hibike Euphonium is good as well, and also by KyoAni.

I see you've started Bebop. What do you think of the episodic escapades and of the crew? Also, what did you think of Ep. 5 and its complete tonal shift from what was usually going on?
Syadona Dec 4, 2016 1:32 PM
Very good stuff. Personally love the Rose pics with the assorted writing in the background the best. Any other originals you've done besides Zestiria?

Mostly bought Nintendo stuff until 2010. Played all the main Zelda games on console (Wind Waker is, without a doubt, my #1 game of all time. What's your fave Zelda game?), love Metroid Prime and Fusion as well as Zero Mission, the Mario Kart series, Fire Emblem, among other series I've played. Also, that's cool.

Exactly on all the points you made for Iggy. Definitely added more foundation to Re-l, Iggy, their relationship, as well as putting a nice touch on his final moments. Also loved her final goodbye to him; "Iggy. Even now, I still don't know who you really were. But I promise, I will someday."

Dubs for comfort and gauging the performances better, though I was a dub elitist before I opened up to amazing sub-only series like Anohana and Monogatari, so now if I can't stand the dub due to laziness on the ADR's fault or for cultural reasons, I'll switch without a problem now. Thankfully, I've only watched a few bad or lazy dubs compared to the rest, which range from fine to outstanding, so the Americans are doing a good job on that front, for the most part.

I didn't like Charlotte in hindsight all that much to be honest. Felt betrayed by it, the creator saying he'll fix some of Angel Beats's flaws but ends up making them worse, turning half the show into filler and the other half into rushed ideas.
Pacing is off...

Hope you enjoy Proxy though, that one's great
SunlitSonata Dec 4, 2016 1:03 PM
Pretty good. Starting NHK right now. Seems Planetes will win the poll

Hey :) glad you liked it. I recommend to watch the movie too!
Syadona Nov 26, 2016 11:50 AM
Ooh. Can't wait for those sweet pics!!!

Actually forgot to ask, but what games and other systems do you own as well? Also, to stop myself from beating around the bush, and excuse me for being blunt, what's your PSN account username? Always happy to make more friends on other media and share experiences. P.S. If you wanna share it secretly or not at all, I'm cool with that as well.

Even after watching it the 2nd time around, definitely Pino. It's a difficult task for anime developers to write strong or memorable child characters without falling hard on certain tropes or stereotypes, but with few exceptions like Pino, they can succeed. I love the wonder and curiosity she retains and obtains throughout the series as both a robot who obtained a soul and the girl birthed from gaining that soul, and she's a valuable companion to Vincent and later on another character. Also, the Tanooki suit. Something tells me it's more of a security blanket than just making a cute character more cute, but dangit, she's super adorbs either way! Also love Re-l, Vincent, Iggy (You'll see why on Ep. 13), gained more respect for Raul on 2nd viewing, and Daedalus is good too.

Btw, which do you prefer: Dub, sub, or depends on the series itself?
