Tysm man, anything good that you've watched lately?
Bocchi is awesome. I highly recommend that you check it out as it is a very easy watch. The show is probably one of the best comedic focused series I have seen in a while. Almost every joke hits hard. It is animated by very passionate people, the number of artstyles they use per episode is very unusual, but highly appreciated from my behalf. The comedy is better than the drama, but even the drama is above par. There is a subtle character develop for the main character bocchi, which is really naturally done. It's a tight package, especially since the music in the show is very well done, and detailed to an impressive degree. I am torn to given it a 7 or an 8, but I'll see when I finish it whether it's worth an 8 or not! The real star of this show lies in the main character and if you relate to her in some way, it's even better! I personally don't relate as I'm not such an introvert like her, but I can understand her struggles nonetheless!
All the best
I would say Rei was my favourite, especially because of how he changes over the course of the series from a 'lone wolf' to a true, supportive friend. However, I loved so many characters from that show. Shimada, especially in the first season, was an absolute star. I LOVE his backstory from the rural side of Japan. Those episodes had such an intense atmosphere about them that even the first time I watched it I remember loving it! I also really loved Rei's teacher, Takashi. His banter with Rei was so lovely to watch, and I love how he supported indirectly the Kawamoto's. That aspect was handled so beautifully!!! And finally, the entire cast of the Kawamoto's.... How can you pick just one! Hina was a standout character, but Akari and Momo had their own charms. Honestly, everytime I think of them I just get reminded of this warm, comforting atmosphere that was present in their home. The soothing colours of orange hues, the delicious meals, the cats making a mess of things... Just such a serene environment that always felt like a treat.
Nothing else to add to it! The longer I let it sit, the more I love sangatsu! Truly the best show to come out in a very long time!!
Anyway sorry for the ramble, it was an absolute joy!
I thought you had watched Kaleido Star.
Nah, Symphonia was my favorite overall video game for the longest time lol. And yeah I can definitely see someone saying that tbh, I definitely feel that way about Replicant and Automata and my top favorite games in general.
Honestly, a lot of Tales games have amazing stories, like Abyss, Symphonia, Berseria, Vesperia, list goes on really. Tales games are mostly character-driven so it depends on how attached you are to the characters overall.
Oh nice, hopefully you'll get your full motivation back and maybe even do commissions! Excited for you! Glad that you're back to manga, any good manga you read lately?
As for me, i mostly lost my motivation for everything really, i've only been keeping up with my on-going favorite works(Jojolion, OPM) and barely reading or rereading stuff from time to time. I haven't watched anime in a long long time, read and reread some comics about 2 or 3 weeks ago, which was fun, and i haven't read any new manga for quite some time now, and even fell behind some of the works i've been following. As for gaming, as you can tell that the entire industry has been affected by covid and the release of games i'm waiting for got delayed unfortunately(Elden Ring, Hollow knight Silksong and Hellblade 2). And i haven't been playing much lately, i should get around to playing Nier remake which i have been waiting for, and RE8. But the standout of these last two years for me is definitely Hades, knowing Supergiant i was expecting it to be a great game, but it completely blew me away and immediately got into my top 10, it's one of the best fictional works i've ever experienced and a true definition and representation of the gaming medium that uses the medium to its fullest potential. It doesn't stop or get stale for even a second, and keeps on renovating and reshaping itself, with a narrative that is full of heart and passion, i absolutely love it. Highly recommended.
Some other games i played, Doom Eternal which was good and fun, Streets of Rage 4 which brought me back the good oldschool vibes of the series, enjoyed it alot, Crusader Kings 3 which is a masterpiece. RE3 remake wasn't as good RE2R unfortunately, it felt too short and less focused for its own good. I also watched TLOU2 on youtube and it was terrible. I played more but these come to mind right now.
Life has been kinda rough for me the last 6 or 7 months, but hopefully i'll finally be able to take a breather in the next 2 months. What about you? Have have you been lately? I hope you're doing great. Doing anything interesting lately?
Yeah, the game and cast are full of charm despite the shortcomings. Yeah it's mainly FPS and other technical issues, I didn't come across issues when I played it but then again my laptop can't handle 60 fps games: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/SpecialK_Mods/discussions/5/2741975115064741602/
So far the only game I'm getting day one this year is Arise. Abyss was literally the game that got me back into gaming and made JRPGs my favorite genre. I had watched the Symphonia OVAs and wanted to play the game, but had to wait till I got a better laptop to emulate it, so I played Abyss on my PS2 instead, and I fucking loved it. Its story and cast are amazing, and it's fun af to play, I'd say it aged pretty well, apart from the world map, I kept getting lost there a lot. xD
Honestly they simply feel more fleshed out, especially if you do all side quests and listen to their banter and interactions, sth that was sorely missing from Automata, even if it makes sense narratively. The thing with Replicant is that it focuses more on its characters, while Automata focuses more on its story, so they're essentially foils to each other. Though I'd rather we keep the discussion till you beat all of Replicant since you should get the full experience first.
Oh it does. It absolutely does. Let me just tell you how to get ending E in Replicant though, after you get ending D, start a new game with a new name and keep playing up until a new scene and then just keep going.
