care to accept my friend ?

i would love to watch those movies, especially Haibane Renmei

Haha indeed, i found your comment about a review of Umineko (anime) from a guy who said it was amazing and i rofl'ed.

I love umineko, is probably one of the best stories ever written, and we definitely have high compatibility (i found some interesting things to watch from your list btw, thank you for that) :).

I'm really happy to find people who actually cares about what they're watching, and trying to understand the meaning behind the images they're shown.
Anyway, i'm glad you accepted the request, and i'll be glad to read your opinions on anime/VN's, etc anytime :).

Well, Garo might not be the Best-Action-Anime ever, but it has its shining moments. Especially character-wise (mmm, Emma). It definitely has its shortcomings -- its well far from perfect, but nevertheless it is one of the better shows of this season.

It’s not that I hate Nasuverse or something… It just isn’t clicking for me, isn’t resonating with my tastes. For example -- it often catches my attention that the world in these works is kind of empty. Well yeah, there is a school, there are some happenings in the streets, but when some action arises, everything becomes empty. And purple. But that’s the style, I get it, but what’s with that emptiness? There are no witnesses, no random people… duh, I just don't get it. And can’t comprehend why is this done this way. And this is just a mere example of what misses the mark for me.
Yeah, I know what you mean when you say about subpar shows that you like. I have a whole bunch of such shows. (and that’s the reason why I -always- differentiate the shows that I subjectively like and the shows that -I think- are objectively good).
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, for example. I am well aware that it uses quite a cheap tricks to build up drama, but I can do nothing but fall for it, empathize with it and let it play on my emotional strings.

I feel like you are the kind of person that will thoroughly enjoy Mushishi. And I have a feeling it will not quite be the experience you are expecting it to be. Not in a bad or a good way. It is always unexpectedly different from what people await -- all of my friends think so, I think that way myself.

Well, I hope your words will be true -- Kara no Shoujo 2 is one of my most awaited titles across all mediums, be it games, anime, films, books or anything else.
By the way, yesterday I got the info that Sekai Project’s Kickstarter has been successfully funded and there are still 40 days to go. Yay, I guess!

I can wait, I will wait for WA2, even if it takes infinity. I also strongly hope for an anime adaptation of ~closing chapter~. White Album 2 just stole my heart away, dude, I don’t even know if I love something more than I love WA2.

Yes, the Winter season shows little to no promise at all. Summer and Fall at least offered me a decent amount of shows to pick from. I did pick like 20-ish or so, and then cut it down to a reasonable number of watchable titles. The upcoming season lacks even that. But that has a good side on it too, as I will be able to watch some non-ongoing anime. Haven’t been able to do that for a pretty long time.

Well, it seems like you are somehow deeply mistaken about Garo. It is by no means cheap. This anime is a part of a huge series which spreads to a different mediums - live-action TV-series, films, audio-dramas, stage plays and now anime. Creators of Garo had a good amount of money to work with, and from what I’ve heard the style which Garo is made in is there on purpose, it is deliberate. As for writing, I all I can say that it gets significantly better. The first two episodes made me cringe as well, but now it is quite pleasing to watch Garo.
Nanatsu no Taizai may indeed seem like your average shounen show. And the fact is that assumption is not far from truth. But what I like about it is its execution. The sheer overpower-ness of everything makes things interesting to a degree. I am quite a shounen-hater, but this show pleases me.
Nah, I’ll finish UBW. Even if it is just for an amazing art and direction of battles. But the story itself and the character motivations and their behavior make me cry oftentimes.
The second season of Mushishi doesn’t simply fare well, it offers upgrades in production values and screen-time management, which are more than welcome. There can be no predestination for it to be subpar just because it follows manga very tightly and is made entirely by a team that brought us the first season.

I can’t say I am all that familiar with the target audience of the western visual novel market, so I kind of have my doubts about that Grisaia Kickstarter. I wish them luck anyways.

Oh, Mangagamer. I don’t want anything from them, I just wish they finish Kara no Shoujo 2 already.

I definitely will let you know if I stumble upon anything worth checking out!

Cheers!

Can’t actually say that I have been amazed by the quality of shows this year. Truth to be said -- it is quite the opposite. This is the year when I started to watch ongoings, so many of them seemed so promising, but the majority ended up as a disappointments. That is pretty sad.
Spring’s name was mediocrity, Summer was just straight up shit, but Fall seems to be better than both of them despite it having an excessive amount of bad shows too.
On a good side - there are some titles that managed stand out from all the mediocrity.
If you like anime about sports, there is a Spring-Summer title -- Baby Steps. It is highly realistic in terms of portraying everything about tennis, characters are likeable and pacing of the show is spot on.

Summer, despite being so meh, had two excellent shows - Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Barakamon. Nozaki is the best comedy I have seen in quite a while. And Barakamon is just a heartwarming piece of countryside slice-of-life.
You already mentioned an anime I like from this season - Bahamut. But fortunately there are even more good shows.
Nanatsu no Taizai - an action-adventure road-movie-like something loosely based on the Arthurian Mythos.
Garo: Honoo no Kakuin - this is an action too. It resembles Bahamut in many ways. I’d say it is a little worse, but quite decent nevertheless.
Shirobako - an interesting little piece of work. An anime about an anime and its industry in general. It is realistic in some ways, it has a lot of references towards the real people in the industry, but is somewhat softened by an all-girl main cast.
I have yet to watch Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, but I already expect good things from it.
As for F/sn… How can I put this… Well, I am not a typemoon type of person, hehe. I never enjoyed KnK (watched 5 movies), found it tedious to finish F/Z, and now F/sn seems to be a drag too. I dunno.
And of course there is Mushishi, the only 10/10 show of the season.

What I like about Grisaia the most are the characters. They seem like your typical harem crew, but there always is more than meets the eye.
I know that the first VN is just a premise, but the other two, sadly, are not translated. I heard that some company wants to start a Kickstarter campaign to try to fund its localization, but i dunno.

Yes, the silence about WA2’s translation worries me too, that’s why I decided not to wait and downloaded that rough patch.

These are some good recommendations, I will most definitely give them a shot sooner rather than later, thank you.

Never worry about the length of your replies, I love to read good long posts, and especially when someone knows what he is talking about!

Hi there. It’s been a long time. I have to apologize for a big delay yet again. Had so much writing to do it almost drove me insane. But right now I am relatively free so I can write a reply.

First of all - how is your anime year faring? Any particular show that you like from the Summer and Fall seasons?

I am steadily getting deeper into the world of visual novels -- right now I am going through Grisaia no Kajitsu, and I like it quite a lot. (I am also watching its anime adaptation, but it is so meh I don’t want to even talk about it).
And also, I am playing White Album 2! They have translated an introductory chapter and released a rough patch. I don’t care if it is unpolished and full of typos and errors, -it is a translated White Album 2-!!! I almost feel like my life is complete now.
I’m also planning to start G-Senjou no Maou and If My Heart Had Wings, but a little bit later.

It’s a little funny considering the things I wrote a while ago on your wall, but I started to read manga. Actually, my friend got me to start it. She recommended me almost all the good manga titles she knew, so I knew I would be reading something good (she is never mistaken in her advices and suggestions to me, she is like my guide in an anime and manga world), so I gave it a shot. My first title was Shirahime-syo, a little plain manga which I like nevertheless. But the next title I started was Emma by Kaoru Mori. And maaaan, it blew me away in an instant. I literally fell in love with everything in that manga and consumed it in a day or so. Its main character - Emma - is the first character from manga in my Top 10 characters list.
Right now I started to read Kaoru Mori’s next manga, an ongoing called Otoyomegatari. I like it too, but not as much as Emma.
I am fully willing to continue reading manga (good manga), and I would love to get some good suggestions from you, if you would.

Cheers.

I hate the fact that even the suspension of disbelief doesn’t work in this case. I simply can not believe that the whole city may me filled with traps and mazes. I can’t believe that 13th district could remain undiscovered for 75 years. I can’t believe so many things…

Woah I sure am happy about the WA2 translation. It doesn’t matter that the whole thing takes a lot of time, people who are interested will wait, that’s for sure.

By the way, I have completed several visual novels.
The first one is Katawa Shoujo. I remember we have already talked about it. I liked it quite a bit. It is not the best one, for sure, but it sure has its own atmosphere. And it is inconsistent. Some of the routes are just plain boring – like the Emi’s or Shizune’s. On the other hand, I just loved the Lilly’s and Hanako’s. Lilly is almost an ‘Ideal Girl’ for me, save the blindness.
The second one is Deardrops. This is a mixed bag. The whole story is completely naïve and unbelievable, I just couldn’t empathize with those characters. The only character I liked is the main girl (well, I am judging by the lengths of the routes) – Riho. Just because of her design and and her sheer skepticism of every thing that happens there.
Whilst I think it is hugely flawed, I somehow managed to enjoy it.
The third is Kara no Shoujo, which we also talked about earlier. This is just the best VN I have encountered so far (I know that I have a huge ways to go). This VN is just plain awesome,

I just re-read my previous comment and saw a stupid mistake:
These are Uchouten Kazoku and Kimi no Iru Machi. The first one is a comedy-drama about a supernatural beings, the second one is a post-apocalyptic story about a little girl who has a power to change the demised world. It was an absolute gem, I gave it one of the strongest 9s I have ever given.
I wrote Kimi no Iru Machi but in reality I wanted to write Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi. I was just watching one of Kimi no Iru Machi’s episodes and my mind got messed up. Sorry.

Yeah, it is indeed so. Kaczynski was a hugely respected person here. He once said that he deemed himself a big friend of Georgian people and was honored by the fact. It won people’s hearts right away. People here generally tend to like Poland. Well, everyone but an MMO players, who seem to hate Polish players for some reason.
I also agree with you that this assas…plane crash was veeery suspicious. In fact I am very interested, does anyone in Poland believe an official version made up published by Russians?
Saakashvili is… well how can I say… Well, I think he is a great politician. But people here seem to disagree. I hate the fact that people only saw what he could, while completely disregarding every damn thing that he did. Before the revolution we lived in a slumphole. Literally. We had only 12 hours of electricity per day, 7 hours of water, pension was ~14 lari (6 Euros), police was corrupted thoroughly, medicine was on a medieval level… He changed all of these. Electricity and water were no longer an issue, he made them 24/7, pension rose to 150 lari (60 euro), he fired each and every person from the police and hired new young and enthusiastic staff. Crime rate dropped drastically. Nowadays 89% of people say that they believe in our police. These are the highest numbers in Europe if I am not mistaken. Medicine also rose. Each and every person now has an insurance financed by the government.
He made the mistakes too (like a cancellation of a Food Quality Control Bureau).
But his biggest mistake in the people’s minds was a war with Russia. This war was inevitable (it is Russia ffs), but people blame him.
And also, people just want more. So the chose the new, Russia-oriented parliament and president in hopes of… frankly, I don’t know what they hope for. Although, I already see their mistakes. Alas.

Sorry about this babble about the politics. Cheers!
Also, sorry about the typos and mistakes, haven't slept for 36 hours, mind is mixed up. Damn work. Cheers again!

Oh yeah, I think I forgot to mention how Masato was a squeaky skinny fuck in the anime.
Improving and straying from the Key formula would be cool.
Idk, my hope is that AB can reach AS/Refrain level early on, before I finish 19 routes and approach the end of the VN...
Lightfellow Apr 12, 2014 4:31 AM
Well, I can not agree. I think each and every character theme in this OST is just plain awesome. Also, aren’t those guest performances also composed by Sawano? I’m sure that at least Blumenkranz is his work. So I can not call KlK’s OST mediocre by any means.

I have finished reading the Hunger Games some time ago. It might be a year, actually, since I finished it. And I just can not express how hugely disappointed I am with that piece of work.
It started almost perfectly. I was in love with its setting, characters, pace of the storytelling. I liked almost everything. The actual downfall started when Katniss’ sister got selected for the Games against all odds. The Games themselves were good, but, near the end of it the interactions between Kat and Peeta got too cheesy, also the ending of the first book made little to no sense. There are no benefits for a country to change its almost century-old rules because of a little girl’s demands.
From the second book and on is where these Games fail completely. Kat, once a free-spirited, open-minded brave girl slowly but steadily becomes a dimwitted drama queen. Her decisions make less and less sense (book 3’s grand finale, for example, is the most miserable ending that I have ever seen).
Plot-twits are not believable, characters are degrading over time, deaths are not reasonable at all, ending sucks big time.
I wanted to like this book, I really did. The first one was good, but #2 and 3 are a HUGE step backwards. And a huge step towards a Twilight-tier fiction.
I have Divergent in my plans too. And I fear it may have the same flaws.

The difference between the 1-2 and 3-7 novels of Witcher is that the first two are a masterpiece, not just in the fantasy genre, and the 3-7 books are merely good fantasy titles, albeit a bit clichéd. In the first two novels Pan Andrzej has achieved something that I have yet to see in other works of fiction. Those fairy-tale references, those seemingly old fantasy tropes that are gracefully played with, that amazing world- and setting-building… These are simply unrivaled.

Yeah, Disgaea is huge. But Disgaea 2 is even bigger! It has a lot worse plotline, but the gameplay shifts are spot on and additional content just adds the replay value.
Those games have killed a tRPG genre for me. I just can’t play anything else. Not even a masterpiece titles such as FFT, Fire Emblem and Tactics Ogre, let alone the more mediocre titles – Stela Deus, Eternal Poison, FFTA, etc.

Yes, White Album 2 struck me as hard as a bullet-train. I can’t even describe my feelings, I just sensed a deep connection with it. Almost exactly like KimiNozo, but on a more emotional level. I instantly loved Kazusa (even though she is a Tsundere). She too got a place in my favs list, just below my trinity of goddesses.
I am sure that the VN is a lot better, but as far as I know it is not translated into English. It is a shame, because I would love to play it.
I also hope that an anime will get a second season. I just want MOAR Kazusa, ha-ha.

I missed almost the whole entirety of the Winter season, so I can’t mention any show from there. The Fall season was okay, I think. Gingitsune reminded me of Natsume Yuujinchou, it was enjoyable and easy to watch. Outbreak Company was lacking, but still pretty hilarious. I absorbed it in no time. I already wrote about the WA2. There also were a longer titles. Kill la Kill, for example. I loved it because it gave me exactly what I wanted from it. Mind-blowing common-sense-defying lightning-fast action-comedy-ecchi-drama title.
I also like Log Horizon, which I am trying to finish right now. It contains almost everything that I wanted from SAO dropping its bad sides.
I am also planning to watch Golden Time and Nagi no Asukara.
The two titles from a Summer season are also worth to mention. These are Uchouten Kazoku and Kimi no Iru Machi. The first one is a comedy-drama about a supernatural beings, the second one is a post-apocalyptic story about a little girl who has a power to change the demised world. It was an absolute gem, I gave it one of the strongest 9s I have ever given.

2013 had also one more great series. Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199. It is a remake of a classic, it retouches it, covers its weaknesses and plot-holes, adds the new shiny graphics, new characters and plot-twists, but retains an oldschool feel to it. The best space-opera I have seen on any medium so far.

In 2013 I came across a fairly old, but very solid anime: GitS: SAC. But you probably know how good it is.

In the Spring season I went crazy and picked up ~15 ongoings. The best so far imo are Mushishi 2, Sidonia no Kishi, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou and Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii.
WIXOSS tries to be Madoka, Brynhildr tries to be Another x Elfen Lied, Blade & Soul tries to be Queen’s Blade, Black Bullet tries to be SnK and Mahouka tries to be -every Marty Stu title ever-. This is miserable.
I also have a relatively high hopes for Akuma no Riddle, One Week Friends and No Game No Life.

Also, I have tidied up my PTW, updated profile and changed my long lasting avatar.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention. Now I live on a Lech Kaczynski street in Tbilisi :)

This is probably my fastest answer yet, haha.
