Currently at a "hope for the best, expect the worst" kinda status for it. I like the idea enough and think it could be really good if executed properly, but it's pretty uninspired, so it figures these kinds of shows normally turn into cash grabs and/or cluttered messes. I've got a love/hate relationship with idol shows, and Strike Witches was pretty great (especially S2), but yeah Brave Witches was super underwhelming.

I'll definitely check it out when it airs, but with significantly lower expectations than what I have for Strike Witches S3 and World Witches.

Oh trust me, I completely understand those grievances towards the Precure series. I'd never say the Precure franchise is one of quality. However, there's something to be said of the structural simplicity of it all. I just find it comforting and reminiscent of a better time when I wasn't constantly critically analyzing everything around me. Of course, I probably still think way too much while watching a majority of the time, but I don't feel like I need to y'know? There are much better magical girl shows out there, and I doubt I'll ever give one of the Precure seasons higher than an 8, but I feel like emerging myself in the show is good for me emotionally and gives a sort of context for magical girl shows and shows for little girls in general.

Been eyeing Gegege no Kitarou and will probably pick it up once it finishes airing. The shonen tag worries me a bit, but I'll reserve judgment for now. I swear by the end of the year, I'll probably be watching exclusively kids shows xD.

April 2019? Yeah, I should be able to catch up by then. Oh, that sort of stagnancy is what I fear the most in franchises I like. :///

People who attack whole genres and trends like that really are the worst tbh. I'm a firm believer that anything can be done well with the right amount of passion and care. If you've gotta attack things that you don't like at the very least, go after individual shows where you can make concise points rather than vague generalizations, right? In terms of Shonen Ai, I understand the frustration that many feel with the genre, and I'd be the first to admit that there are a disproportionate amount of 'fujoshit' (hell, I just dropped one today, lol), but the kind of railing against fujoshi isn't constructive and just comes off as stupid, ya feel me?

Gotta admit I tend to like KyoAni shows or at least feel neutral about them. Hard to really pinpoint a studio down and compare shows to each other when you've got so many different people and ideas flowing in and out. I was mostly just saying Nichijou is awesome; it's like my 2nd fav show, lol.

Yes, that's exactly what I think Toohru is. And yeah, I feel the other characters can all be slotted against that typical format as well. I don't think Dragon Maid was an original show. It's steeped in clichés and follows a pretty standard format. But personally, I don't care about originality, I care about execution. Why I love the show comes down primarily to nuances and an overall heart the show has. Admittedly, I'm having a hard time understand what your point is regarding Toohru's connection to the real world. I didn't really focus on that aspect, so I can't really come up with a good defense, but if that was a main problem you had, I guess I can understand.

I couldn't finish Euphonium myself, but that was admittedly just because I hated Kumiko with a passion, so Liz and the Blue Bird might work well for me. I'll keep my eye out for it.

Watching all Precure is a fools errand I know, but I gotta try xD. Love the episodic airiness of most seasons, though I imagine I'll end up dropping some of them, cause yeah they can get stale depending on the staff behind it and the characters presented. Added Symphogear to PTW now. For some reason, I was under the impression it had 50+ episode seasons, don't know where that idea came from...

Aight, that's fair. Really though it's good to be open to genres outside your wheelhouse, but you don't have to go out of your way to get that exposure. Personally, that's what I like about anime. There's so much variety and so many different kinds of shows readily available that you can easily just avoid what you don't care for.

I had forgotten about Mahoromantic, I should watch that one. Fair opinion on Dragon Maid. I personally didn't find the juxtaposition of comedy and drama too jarring due to many subtle scenes where characters show vulnerabilities. And while Kobayashi is "normal", I feel like if you look at the show from the perspective that she's the main character and not Tohru, you can draw out a lot of themes addressing complacency, introversion, and the modern condition. But yeah, every KyoAni show pales in comparison to Nichijou, lol.

Symphogear is really one of those franchises I've been saying I'm going to start for years now, lol. Was thinking I'd try soon, but now I've decided I'm gonna try all the Precure seasons which is probably gonna take a looooong time.

I'm also all about that gay shit xD. Would send recommendations but I wanna check your list first to see what you've already seen and get a better idea of what your taste is. But that function isn't up yet either. ://// First recommendation to come to mind is No.6, but from what I can see just in your profile, I'm pretty sure you're not interested in 'shonen ai' type stuff, lol. You watch Kobayashi's Dragon Maid?

Also, I know you reached out specifically from the comment I left on Reprise's profile, but Yama no Susume Season 3 hype <3
I'd send a friend request, but that MAL function still ain't back up yet, lol

While I haven't played Wild Arms, I'd guess Cazador's setting and overall style are similar but not as thoroughly fleshed out. For the most part is has that wild west feel you are looking for, but it's heavily implied this takes place in present day or possibly the future, considering some of the minor characters are monitoring the events of the plot from this big office building. Whereas Wild Arms incorporates some medieval and steampunk-ish sensibilities, Cazador tries to blend in tribal and modern themes, which sometimes work well and sometimes are just plain laughable.

Definitely think its worth checking out if you are intrigued by the setting though. Hope this helps!

Ripperoni images right now, though xP. Can't see what you posted!

But everybody loves memes. That's why Darling in the Franx will win AotY because Trigger...

Unfortunately for me, I have not seen any of Adachi's works yet. I know Cross Game is a big one but I have yet to see it. Hopefully I get the time to come around them one day...

Well...you didn't pick up Wakaokami wa Shougakusei...because nobody was talking about it! Heck, the YouTube trailer has less than 1000 views! The subs are later than the other anime airing this season, and I'm still waiting for the subs of the next episodes! Also, it looks like a kid's anime, but I was interested in it because of Madhouse, Nana Mizuki, and also the amazing trailer...which was FALSE ADVERTISING BECAUSE A DIFFERENT STUDIO WAS CONTRACTED TO MAKE THE TRAILER! I mean the anime is still good, but if it was made like its original trailer, that would have bumped it up WAY higher than what it originally was. But there is a movie of it coming out, and if it looks like the trailer, I'm all aboard the hype train for that!

Eh, accidents happen. Besides, MAL is not the only website that shuts down without warning. *coughkissanimecough*

Yep, Yama no Susume 3 is my most anticipated anime of the year. It's using the same episode duration as season 2, which is good. I haven't really found an anime this year that has that "spark" to make it my AotY. The two leading the charge are A Place Further than the Universe and Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens. I skipped Darling in the Franx, but I should get to it since it's apparently the next Re:Zero. I skipped Megalo Box since I want to watch Ashita no Joe first. I skipped Steins;Gate 0 because I wasn't feeling up for it. I want to watch BnHA 3, but I was backed up with a lot of stuff. Hinamatsuri is considered as the best new anime of the season, but I missed it so too bad for me. The only anime I am currently watching this year that can potentially give me that spark and become my AotY is Juushinki Pandora, but that's just me being biased because Satelight and Kawamori being weird and cheesy as usual.

Oh, there's also Wakaokami wa Shougakusei that was airing this Spring, but nobody picked up on it. I personally find it cute and charming, and it's pretty fun to watch. Also, it's not very often that you hear Nana Mizuki voicing a snobby (but so cute!) character...

I see, I see. Well, I don't talk much about Symphogear with anyone else, anyway xD. I'm the same as you; if someone asks about it, I'll let them know about it. Otherwise, there ISN'T actually much to talk about Symphogear, as the story is rather lacking. So no worries here. I tend to talk to other people about more anime that really got me thinking, such as Madoka Magica, Mekakucity Actors, Stella Jogakuin Koutou-Ka C3-bu, WIXOSS, etc.,


Anyways, so with that said: I see you apparently hate Love Live! xD LOL.


Mahou Shoujo Taisen: Dude, you're almost there! 2 more episodes! The episode 7-12 arc is so worth it! :D. I kept those episodes in my download file after I finished the show because it's just THAT good. Not only for the entertainment, but the thoughtful side of it as well. Oh, and don't worry:
.


Valkyrie Drive Mermaid... shouldn't that be in your dropped list? I couldn't get past the first episode either. People think Symphogear's premise is awful? Yeah right. Just look at Valkyrie Drive LOL.


You dropped Higurashi, eh? Interesting, as I've heard quite a lot of things about it xP. It is definitely on my PTW when I'm feeling ready and in the mood to watch it.


Lastly, it's so fantastic I can stare at Yukine as I scroll through your anime list lol <3! Awesome custom profile :D
RepentInReprise Apr 17, 9:11 AM
CHRIS-CHAN! DAISUKI DESU! I- I mean, DAISUKI DES! I l-let my Kirika out a little, there xD.

So, based on these comments on your profile... I see you are well on your way on leading people towards the path? :D
TheIronQwaser Apr 13, 9:34 PM
First Symphogear = best symphogear. You get it!
SilkDegrees Apr 13, 10:34 AM
''...wait people watch Symphogear for the story???''
You're right, damn. what was I thinking?

Anyways, I'll probably do a full playthrough of WA2 once I get the liberty to do so.
