Black Clover could be cool if it played with the tropes, subverting them in a funny way like OPM or just using these common tropes as a way to keep the audience always guessing and not knowing what is about to happen with it's story and characters, that way maybe the story could feel like it had some effort put into it and not just a sarcastic piece of literature that most people won't even realize what it actually is.

Hey, no problem ^^ I always admire people who can write a good review because it's something I somehow can't seem to manage. Every time I try it, the review isn't accurate and objective, and more like "I like this anime because the fights are cool" or "I just loooove the characters, so..."
And about Black Clover, honestly, I too have never thought about any background reasons why the anime/manga might be what is is, and that's why I liked your review. By the way, is the manga as boring as the anime? Because I'm still kinda interested in the story and might just switch to the manga instead.

Ahhh, Gintama, yes :D I've missed the lastest couple of episodes, but now I can watch them all at once, hehe. How do you like this last arc so far? Do you know how many episodes it's going to be? At first I thought it'll be another 12 like the last arcs but since the manga still isn't finished, maybe it's going to air even longer? I don't read the manga by the way so I'm just speculating :D

Hi :)
I just read your review of Black Clover and just wanted to tell you that I loved it. Your writing style is really nice and funny, and I like how you stick to your opinion and the 10 rating. It's nice to see someone not just bashing an obviously boring anime but instead trying to see why it might be so bad and if there are maybe other reasons like WSJ politics behind it.
So, thanks for writing and sharing your thoughts, I guess. Have fun watching ^^

true, true. i'm usually always open minded when starting a series and there were a few scenes that i picked up in the manga that hinted at me that this is basically picking fun at all the typical shounen cliches and all that jazz. & haha no worries!

So, you have to watch Kizu in-order to understand Owari Season 2. There is connections and foreshadows that is hinted in the movie that you will see that will line up with the second season. The monogatari series is very confusing at first, but everything starts to connect once you watch all the three part of Kizu then watch Owari 2nd season. The latest season which is the very last season for the series so far aka Owari season 2 has only 3 episodes but it's truly amazing how they end the series with those three episodes. I think its a must watch and you will understand it once you watch it! If you have questions that might confuse you, I can try to answer it for you since the series can be very confusing at first!

Yea, like it's my review and I just write whatever is true to the eyes. Like this guy is making 3 accounts just to argue with me and trying to prove his point. Jesus Christ, people these days gotta give their two cents on everything. and the monogatari series is just simply amazing. Like the whole series itself is thought out so perfectly. Everything is planned out and make sense. It just simply means that the writer really loves writing and actually care about the series as a whole. Easily, my top anime of all time.

Hey, thanks for the add. The review I had for Black Clover wasn't the best but I think it's good enough to explain how poorly that series is! People was arguing how my review was garbage and I was called a hater but oh wells~ I see that you like Shinobu too! Good taste my friend!

Okay thanls, I'll be sure to check those out.

Oh cool, I heard C.K's red was also great.
Haven't listened to Pink Floyd at all, except for the final cut. definitely gonna start with The Dark Side Of The Moon.

Well the problem is definitely not limited to anime, it's hype culture in general. Things get hyped so much, so when new people start watching they usually can't be helped but be disappointed. I mean it's very hard for a show/movie to live up to all that kind of exposure. That's why usually just don't get my hopes up for anything, be it games, movies or anime it's better to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed yet again. I recently watched the iron giant which was my absolute favorite movie when I was a young kid, and I was glad it still was great.
Jeah that's kinda what I was doing with inuyashiki, might pick up Jojolion I mean Jojo is what got me from anime to enjoying manga.

Yeah that's exactly the thing why I can't get into them. But the oldest record I love from of what heard is: King crimson's in the court of king crimson.
I'm still discovering alot of music I enjoy right now.

That's sad to hear, although not that surprising I mean compared to the original this anime had a lot to live up too. But anime and disappointment go hand in hand. Like Inuyashiki which started off pretty strong with an unique MC not much seen in anime, but it quickly developed in the generic edgy plot of "hey how many innocent people can this highschool sociopath kill for literally no apparent reason".
I don't mind older anime, as long as the story and the characters are good. But 90~ episodes is just a bit too much of commitment for me, might pick it up in the future.

I'm probably gonna take a bit of an anime hiatus maybe then I can gain some love back. Which is funny considering I haven't watched fuck all this year. Probably gonna pick up the HunterxHunter bluray, that might do be trick. doubt it.

Jeah Joy division took a couple listens for me too, it was a bit of an aquired taste for me. Tbh never really listened or got into the Beatles/ stones, I tend to stick to the darker side of rock. Last couple of weeks it's kinda been listening to alot of the Cure, Disintegration in particular absolutely love that album.

Shit I hoped for Kino to be good, why is it disapointing?
Jeah I heard black clover is quite the shitfest, the main character scream alone is an instant no for me.
Oh Maison sounds interesting. But I lately haven't been enjoying much except for texhnolyze, even outside of anime. Been trying to complete the final cut of Blade runner which has alot of aspect of things I absolutely love. But I find myself tuning out after 10 minutes ( I'm on the halfway mark now) not because I dislike it or anything. Gonna have to watch it from start again soon. Yeah I've heard alot of good things about Redline, been planning to watch it for while now.
outGazt Nov 23, 2017 2:21 PM
Oh cool, I like Joy division as well recently started listening to them. Really liked unknown pleasures and closer is on my to do list, have you listened to closer?
Btw seen anything good lately?
outGazt Oct 28, 2017 11:28 AM
Yeah I pretty much agree with all the criticisms you have, especially the main human characters they could've been so much more interesting. However I think Sqauler was done perfectly, his resentment against the humans was perfectly justified and how flawed his logic might have been he truly believed that he could change the current situation for his "people" for the better.

CGI and anime just don't mix it didn't bother me as much in ShinYori. I mean I get why it's done as it massively saves time and money.
It's bothering me alot in Genkutsuou don't get me wrong it's "rarely" used but the art style is already rather unique which imo does work most of the time, but when it doesn't it can take me completely out of the experience and it creates some truly jarring moments. Whenever you watch that anime just look at the scenes involving the streets and rows of houses just hideous which is a shame as the rest of the show is quite beautiful. Inuyashiki (pretty interesting but flawed and currently airing) makes alot of use of CGI but here it fits a lot better still jarring tho.
I primarily put Oregairu on my list because the MC looks interesting. Although I'm not the biggest comedy fan I do enjoy it from time to time.

Jeah Christoph waltz is an amazing actor. But most of his movies have fantastic acting despite having a great eye for casting Tarentino seems to be able to get the most out of his performers. Haven't seem Death proof or jackie brown I'm afraid, will get to those eventually.
outGazt Oct 16, 2017 6:21 PM
No love for reservoir dogs? One my favorite movies. I just love Tarantino. He constantly makes so many good/ great movies. I like inglorious bastards a lot too although I do enjoy Django unchained a bit more tho.

I'm definitely planning on watching Bakemonogatari, but right now Gankutsuou and Trapeze are first on my plan to watch list. Another show I enjoyed recently was Mononoke it's pretty slow paced but I love the MC aswell and it has great sorys/arcs. And it's gorgeous. Well that's a valid concern as for SBR the setting(s) was/were vastly different than PB, and part 8 takes part in the same Morioh so there is obviously gonna be a bit more overlap this time around. So I just read chapter 1 of jojolion/jojorion? And it definitely starts of unique I mean the first thing we learn about the new JoJo is that he has 4 balls, so it's of to a good start.
