Same bro. I was horny kid who thought he was the "King of Anime" lmao. I was going through my old comments trying to find an anime quote and saw people dislike my reviews. Hell apparently I also did hentai reviews lmao. If that not cringe worthy I don't know what is lol. Thank you for replying. Hope you doing well and in good health.

Hey, um... been awhile. How have you been? How the kids, quick question. What review did I write to make you get into your feelings? What anime was it? I can't remember and I don't have any reviews on my page. If you don't remember I completely understand lol.

Hey mate I couldn't help but notice you're a coder, ever heard of Pleroma?

Oh man do I agree with you about F/GO. I remember when Zero came out, even though there were a bunch of secondary's at least people were thinking up new creative shows and servant types etc. Stuff like Fate/Apocrypha was a great example of something I'd like to see more of, even if it was extremely rushed and had easily the blandest mc I've ever seen. Unfortunately, Japan saw a milking cow with the Fate franchise, and now so many servants and ideas are put to the side for the sake of making every historical waifu as is possible. Why? Simple, money.

Reading your extra analysis of Holyland has made me appreciate it even more, and I kinda get why characters are made simply a lot of the time. Plus, the usage of those tropes is pretty realistic all things considered, I guess because I've seen the same things done so many times in other series, I've began to lose my appreciation of well done stories just because I've seen the same tropes before. The repetition that goes on through Holyland is realistic and portrayed well from a fighters perspective, and the all of the side characters were, at the least, fun and not annoying (Aside from the female MC, Holyland's mangaka does not know how to write a good female protag.)

If your looking for some underappreciated manga like Holyland, I reccomend Yomawari Sensei and Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa, as both cover topics similarly to Holyland like finding a place of belonging and living in the moment (Though Yomawari Sensei is a lot more pessimistic about the hole topic.) Also, sorry I responded so late, I have been really busy lately and only have spare time on the weekends. I really do enjoy writing like this and meeting people of similar tastes in the anime community.

I will always be mad that people rushed the release of the original VN when it was supposed to have not only an Ilya route, but a goddamn Shinji route. And it doesn't help Hollow Ataraxia's case when the 2nd best character in the Fate universe (Kirei) is dead.

And I think simply for this alone it breaks out on my top 10 manga list. Only a few things that I have read have realistically depicted the world in which our characters live. The entire cast feels fleshed out, aside from a few exceptions, and the interactions they have with the MC are even better. In a typical shounen manga (I'm using the term "shounen" broadly here, it could easily be argued to be seinen as well) our MC would find a mentor who would train him out of nowhere, then become stronger and take down weaker opponents. In Holyland, however, a lot of the time the MC is given no advice or ways to beat his opponent, and with every lost battle he doesn't always try to figure out how to win next time. He gives up, he loses his rhythm, and usually the way he gets out isn't by fighting but because the only thing he strives for is to fight. It depicts the sense of not fitting in anywhere else, so he picks himself up not because he wants to, but because without it he will lose the one thing that made him feel human.

But to be fair, there is a lot of mentoring and typical shounen tropes in Holyland. For example, the girl that likes the MC for no apparent reason only existing so she can lift the MC out of a depression. As well as the extremely strong fighter who helps the MC occasionally because he sees talent in him. No series is perfect however, and I feel the mangaka had a good balance of shounen junk to keep the readers who just wanted to read a traditional shounen engaged, while also contributing with a realistic coming of age story about a young boy who desperately clings to find a place where he belongs in the world.

Nice profile page

I have read Hollow Ataraxia but my opinions on it are mixed, sure Slice Of Life stuff with my favorite characters is cool but I wish that the original cast had more to do with the side plot of Angra Mainyu, but I might just be salty because the only thing close to an Illya route that were ever gonna get is Prisma Illya. And early on in Holyland I wanted to drop it badly because of how an untrained lengthy kid took down almost everything in his path, but seeing him repeatedly get beat later on made up for that. I especially liked how it showed his good and bad days, just because your a good fighter does not mean your head is in the game. A lot of the time in shounen fighting manga the characters become stronger with their emotions becoming stronger, and to be fair Holyland does this as well. A lot of the time though, MC had lost against easy opponents because he was under some kind of stress, leading to further doubt and a spiral away from his original goal and into desperation to become good again. As an athlete this was a really accurate representation of the fluctuation you go through while practicing your craft. It really pissed me off when in the comment sections of the manga site I was reading on people would call MC a pussy and threaten to drop it unless it started to get good, but I guess that's why most people read shounen battle manga in the first place. /:

Same can be said for you good sir, Rin is the reason why I ever explored anime as a medium after I read the VN 7 years ago. I owe a lot to her. which is why she's 3/10 of my top characters. And Holyland is up there not only because it's a brilliant piece of literature, but because the author really knew his stuff when he would touch upon street fighting. It's unfortunate that the Author's other works were not up to par with it...
