also, you NEED to watch the English dub, if that wasn't clear enough. The weirdest thing is that unlike Garzey's Wing, the dub cast for Genma Wars has normally solid voice actors that just give zero shits because it's Genma Wars, and who can blame 'em?

Pretty recently, I think some rec forum linked to it and I was like "I'm at home here"

Now I just need more people to watch Genma Wars! And to have it added to their club relations! It's a truly special kind of awful



I'd say the review spoils the entire thing, but the plot is also such a convoluted mess... It does rather spoil the best scene though (right at the start), but it's equally funny and weird in context as out of context.

Hey! I appreciate to see you initiate a little talk in my profile page =)
It is likely that you will see me intervene in the Unusual Club for Critics with bizarre taste. We all complement each others with our singular watching patterns.
I am part of a very few clubs as a whole, so that I can afford to be active in them whenever it shakes.
The garbage connoisseurs is an outstanding place. As I often say, one also needs to watch the very bad, in order to get a sense of what is great quality.

Cacofonix the bard? Do you mean it about my speechcraft? Don't mind my odd syntax, people often say I type as if I come from straight out of Medieval times. I own up to it, it is my hallmark

I'm making my way through trade school at the moment. When I'm not studying, I try finding something to do around campus. To be honest, there aren't a lot of options but I think I'm making the most of it.

For one, I'm getting better at cooking. Most days, the food that's served on campus isn't that great so I'm left with making my own meals. At first, I'd settle for ramen cups and TV dinners but then I grew tired of eating the same thing over and over. Yesterday, I fixed myself chicken chow main with stir fry vegetables and it actually turned out pretty well. Right now, that's pretty much the only thing I know how to make but I'll learn more recipes in the near future.

So what about yourself? How's life treating you?

I see.
After experiencing several Tomino shows (Gundam & co.), I kind of accepted this as a given but also learned to see the originalities past it. (for example, I thought that the initial three piloting heroes were quite different despite the identical "accidently becoming pilot" element)
For F91, the stronger recycling (of 0079) was something I highly welcomed after my disappointment for Zeta: the war drama was again at the story's center, while the soap-opera part didn't seem to go out of hand like Zeta and was trying to bring out the "new theme" (family) with less teenagers antics (just like 0079).

Anyway, glad someone else appreciated the visual magnificence of F91. ^^

Finally got around to watching the Gundam films and I'm impressed so far.

As of right now, I've only seen the first one. Early on, I was concerned that the film would spend too much time on the fight scenes and not enough on establishing the characters involved. Fortunately, the film improved on that as it went along. If there was one thing about Gundam that resonated with me, it had to be the political intrigue. I'm always a sucker for shows that give a nuanced perspective to both sides and Gundam meets the mark. At this point, I'm exhausted with stories that are absorbed into the idea of "good vs evil" and I'm glad Gundam doesn't fall into that trap. I'll update you with further thoughts after I watch the other two films. Thanks for recommending this franchise to me, man.

Also, Happy New Year's!

Hello, MisterGibbon!

Thanks for reading my Crest and Banner reviews! I understand where you're coming from - some shows have elements that make it hard to see the good parts of it. I can understand some taking fault with the skewed views in Crest, but the show has more to it than a few flaws when it comes to balancing sides. The inverse also applies, as some shows seem really good in the moment or during the viewing that it's hard to notice the flaws. In the case of Crest, I got a few messages that were upset that I gave it such a low score (I thought it was slightly above average, so I gave it a 5.5 akin to MAL's rating system), even talking with someone that said it was their favorite anime! It's great to see people passionate about a show because it shows that people are digging deep as to what the makes the show succeed or fail. It's when people get caustic that I start to worry about anime discussion - everyone's friends until you learn what their favorites are!

In the case of Banner, I was honestly shocked upon learning the community's reaction to it. To see Crest praised so much yet Banner downplayed as inferior made me think - what was it about Banner that makes it "worse" than Crest? I can only think of the removal of the "teenage runaway" theme that would make a fan disappointed. I still think that if you liked the characters of Crest, Banner would be the obvious next watch. Despite this, I did also talk with someone who was a fan of all the entries of the series, so I'm glad to see Banner get some love (even if I don't love it myself).

In any case, I'm glad you liked both of those reviews. Thank you for visiting! Have a nice night!

Yeah.. it took me ages to finish the interview but I think it was worth it. Glad to hear from you!

Things are going pretty well on my end. I've been holding down a job with Amazon since April and I'm looking to get a promotion. Also, thanks to a few, um, interesting discussions I've had with other users recently, I've been inspired to give Bakemonogatari a second chance. I recall you advising I watch more episodes of the show and, from what I've seen, it appears to be worth it.

As for Gundam, I'm probably going to watch the trilogy over the original because, based on what I've gathered, it tells the same story but it's not as drawn-out as the original.

Ah, Master Keaton. That brings back memories. I watched a few episodes of it about 5 years ago and didn't have a favorable impression because I was expecting it to be something it wasn't (in this case, with Master Keaton being made by Naoki Urasawa, I was expecting an intense mystery and that wasn't the case).

Looking back on it, it was a terrible decision to dismiss what Master Keaton had to offer based on my flawed perspective. I plan on picking the show back up in the near future so I'm really interested in seeing what your thoughts are on it once you've finished it.

I'm always up for recommendations.

Thank you so much. That's the most personal review I've written, I'm glad you liked it!
Nervin May 23, 2018 11:59 AM
Why thank you kindly, sir!

Happy Birthday, buddy!

Well, you've definitely interested me in Humanity Has Declined, so thanks for that!

Perhaps Kiromaru decided to side with humanity simply because he didn't see a future with Squealer, and was mad at him killing all his allies and stuff... I wouldn't blame him. My friend also noted that it might just be pure loyalty to the humans, that it's practically embedded in his genetic code or something; that he feels it's "natural" for the queerats to be below the humans or something like that.

But yeah, it's some interesting stuff. Really leaves you with a lot to think about.
bmoore07 Apr 5, 2018 8:59 AM
Don't worry; there are definitely revelations involving Haibane Renmei that happen later on. Don't want to spoil anything but it really causes you to look at Old Home and the world of Haibane Renmei at large in a different light.

So far, I'm really impressed with what I've seen from LOGH. For one, its social commentary is much more detailed than most shows that tackle similar concepts. LOGH doesn't just offer its opinion on topics like nationalism, classism, and sexism, but it also provides an elaborate perspective from the opposing side of its opinion. The opposition isn't just a straw man; they're people with actual feelings and thoughts. All in all, I'm interested in seeing the effect a "leap" will have on LOGH, as it's already an excellent show 8 episodes in.

Nice to see that you're embracing the MAL Documentary meme. Btw, what's your overall impression of Haibane Renmei so far?
