I love a ton of things about it. I'm a huge fan of retro throwbacks, and this show has sort of a modern interpretation of say, an Ishinomori art style. The visuals are fantastic in general. Great action scenes, solid directing. I love how the show jumps from multiple different points in time and utilizes its time jumps to form a thematically coherent narrative each episode. It's like every episode adds another piece to the puzzle in terms of solving the greater whole. Some say a more straight forward narrative would have been better, but I completely disagree. It feels like you are jumping around the timeline and crafting individual stories from these jumps, no different than say what a history book does. I absolutely love the show's themes on morality, and many of its ideas have influenced what I think on right, wrong, nostalgia, the future, history, fiction, etc. The show takes place in an alternate version of 1940s-1970s Japan, and the events in the series are based off of actual historical events. So essentially what the show is doing is it's using characters from that era's fiction in order to commentate on that era's history.

I really like the show's cast too, and seeing them each become faced with their own moral conflicts, though admittedly some characters are a bit underwritten in comparison to others. In spite of that, there's so many interesting characters in it. Every time I watch it, I notice something new I didn't notice before, or another conflict becomes a lot more emphasized to me, which more than makes up for it. A lot of people criticize it for being messy or for being too convoluted, but I don't see that at all. There hasn't really been an anime since that has quite spoken to me on the level Concrete Revolutio has. Though admittedly there's a ton of shows I have really liked and enjoyed since then, just not in the same way ConRevo and the rest of my top 5 or so have.

well i wouldn`t know, all i can see is SFX XD
The_Shinjinator Jan 20, 7:48 AM
yeah, its especially bad with horror series :3
The_Shinjinator Jan 19, 10:59 AM
nah i meant you started rewatching it XD, though i should finish the second scenario :3
The_Shinjinator Jan 19, 10:23 AM
oh boy, next comes Higurashi :3
RogerSmith2004 Jan 17, 8:40 PM
The Higurashi VN, to my knowledge, has a lot of SoL scenes and is quite different from the anime. I haven't read much of it myself.
RogerSmith2004 Jan 17, 8:36 PM
Fate/Stay Night VN is really really boring. I've read through a good amount of the Fate route.
RogerSmith2004 Jan 17, 7:59 PM
Yea, the visual novels are pretty slow, lol
RogerSmith2004 Jan 17, 7:17 PM
Yea, I remember watching Higurashi a few years ago and really enjoying it. The first episode is pretty slow, tho.

cntr + f works everywhere

I don't have "all anime" category because it mess up with my layout. Watching is default one and if you change it to completed (buttons are at the top) it should work.

Not likeable??? Now thats something. I get you don't really like her, but there are countless fans who'd sell their soul so that she could be real.
Vasilivros Jan 16, 9:39 PM
I see your point, but calling her a Hitler and a bitch is quite the overstatement. She does yell a lot and uses propaganda like a pro, but I think its presented more as her being really smart about how she achieves her goals.

it's a relaxing travel anime about girls who make friends on the common interest of wanting to go to Antarctica and their struggles along the journey to their destination.
Vasilivros Jan 16, 12:39 PM
You very often say you love femdom, so how come isn't Satsuki your favourite character of all time, waifu for life etc etc? I don't know any character that would fit the "femdom" type more.
The_Shinjinator Jan 15, 3:38 AM
already did :D, also watched Fate/Zero and the Fate/Kaleids X3
