Hmm, I can definitely see where you're coming from with everything you've said, but I don't know if you can agree with your own statement when you said that the director didn't have the talent. In fact, Seiji Kishi has directed some pretty darn good stuff in the past. Some of these include Tentai Senshi Sunred, Yuugo the Negotiator, Carnival Phantasm and more impressively Jinrui Suitai Shimashita (also Yuuki Yuuna but you gave it only a 6/10, still not bad) which you gave all 7s and above. Then again, a director can always mess up here and there but I still can't bring myself to agree with you on that point in particular.

Also, I don't really think that the CGI of TgK really matters at all, nor do I feel that it makes it any worse in terms of what it was trying to do. In addition to this, the CGI would most likely be fixed in the Blu-ray when it comes out, so I think that removes that issue entirely. I disagree about the backgrounds in Tsuki Ga kirei not being detailed. I understand and agree that Musuko had better backgrounds but I wouldn't say that TgK lacked in that department. Go check out any episode, if you'd like. I think there's plenty depth there. But then again, why should background depth matter?

What do you mean that Musuko's cast had more life to them? Personally I think that these characters were acting far too mature for their ages. Remember in TgK these are Middleschool kids, not Highschoolers. I think that the choices made by the kids in TgK were less exaggerated and had more nuance than in Hourou Musuko. Also, in Musuko characters would constantly blurt out what they felt about a situation which I tend to dislike as I prefer to figure things out myself, rather than be told what to think. Musuko, in a way, was perhaps too emotionally manipulative as well at times, relying like I said a tad too much on melodrama to make a scene more poignant. I mean, I completely emphathised with the characters, but I still would have preferred a better balance of comedy and drama. Someone like Maho, for example, was far too much like your typical Tsundere for me to take her seriously; characters like Chizuru were also out of place as she simply acted as silly comedy relief. Tsuki had absolutely none of this banter. All characters acted like -even if you feel it may be an impersonation- middle schoolers for me. I was a middle schooler myself 3 years back, which is not too long ago, but I saw myself accurately in these characters' personalities and motives. Maybe you've just grown out of the middle schooler mentality so you can't relate with these characters as well?

It is all fine and dandy if you objectively state that Kirei's characters had no humanity, but I have no clue how you see them that way. As I described in my review of the show, I cannot agree with that statement.

Please remember that I completely respect your opinion, just curious about some of these topics. :)

Thanks for the add, pretty impressive stats :D

BTW, if your curious to see it, I'm in the process of adding images of my favorite movies to my profile

You, with all those anime watched.

I'd guess that asking you about a show you have watched a while ago is probably kind of a brain test, but you are the first person I met who fiercely HATES K. Thoughts? I think a rewatch on your side is due. :^)

I honestly say that's good but overrated. I'd probably say The Matrix for my choice, though Independence Day and 300 are definitely high on my list

Definitely, though I'm not sure when I'll be able to go the the movies next since my family can't really go to the theaters when we're raising my 2 baby brothers (2 years and nearly 6 months respectively) and from July 27 to August 3, I'll be out of town to head to Massachusetts.

While I haven't seen many of Nolan's movies, I loved the Dark Knight trilogy and a good war story is right up my alley. Guess we'll have to find out the quality of this movie for ourselves.

Interested in seeing the movie Dunkirk? I've heard great things about this one and given that it's WWII, my interest was piqued the moment I saw a trailer for it.

Thaaaaaaaaaaat's better! ^_^

Indeed. Aside from how great the production design was for fitting the time, and the balance between mundane conversation and the impending doom, I'm glad that it did not feel bias in either direction, you got to see things how they were, and how Hitler's state of mind was slowly deteriorating with how much was stacked against the Nazis at the end of the war. Considering I'm Jewish and have grown up to despise that, call me impressed. Looking at your Letterboxd, I've noticed you had a lot of unfamiliar or foreign films with high-ish scores, what are some of your favorites? I've heard City of God is a pretty good one.

That something's given quality comes down to how much anyone can like, as opposed to how much you personally like or dislike it/whether the positive or negative qualities tip the scales and by how much.

Yes, that film. The one that inspired all the meme videos.
animeiscool561 Jul 21, 7:08 AM
I'm curious, is that how you generally see quality?
Anyone can find anything to like in almost anything whether the reason be detailed or broad or even come down to just a scene or two. With a show like SAO, saying "there was too much that I couldn't like/ that prevented me from liking it" seems more fitting and less arguable, and things people could like about it might not phase you. I think it comes down to "how much of what you can like matters to you and your judgement versus the inverse". It's especially notable when seeing popular shows and movies how lots of people could appreciate them despite their flaws which could be big or small depending on the example.

Also, just saw Downfall. It was incredible.
