Death Note is not supposed to have a huge scale though, it was focused on Light and some other characters but that is about it. Code Geass has an ongoing war between nations so that is why the scale is going to be larger. Death Note did not have any plot holes through it's entire run, Ohba explained every rule the Death Note had during the whole run of the show. Code Geass had a lot of plot holes, one I remember is how the geass conveniently worked when he told princess Euphemia "To kill everyone" for some reason, this is one that I do remember honestly. Suzaku's character imo. I haven't seen the series since 2016 though.

What do you mean? Code Geass was so stupid compared to Death Note, read Polyphemus' review on the series and you will see why I think it is also stupid.

I did not enjoy the second half, I did not like Near at all. The way Light lost was ridiculously stupid. I enjoyed all 25 episodes of the first half, and did not mind Light losing his memory, it was a breath of fresh air to see Light become innocent again, and the scene where he regains his memories is epic.

No problem. If you can recommend me some things then I would be content, and why exactly is Death Note dumb?

You're welcome! I guess you're gonna like the whole show if you like the first 10 episodes or so. From what I remember it only got better and never git worse. (It has a rather mundane premise but the character dynamics slowly become more interesting.) In many ways it really does stand out from a lot of typical romcom anime about high school teenagers. The heroine is much more complex and well-rounded and much less a product of male fantasy. Please feel free to come back to me later if you would like to discuss anything about the show!

I think the production of the anime is pretty good. It got very nice animation and a very pleasant art style. The problem is I read the manga like 12 years ago. So basically the person who is making the judgment is not pretty much the same any more. The rom-com looks less original and more trite to me now. I've also grown tired of the kind of personality that the hero has. But from what I remember the manga really took off in the later half where the romance got more serious and more engaging and the emotion got more profound. Though I don't know what I would think about that more serious part now. I was an inexperienced 16 year old by then.

My opinion is that you could try for yourself a couple of episodes and see if the rom-com works for you. I think plot-wise the anime actually follow the manga quite closely, but maybe the manga is able to deliver its jokes better, so you may want to try it out too and compare for yourself.

Hey. Thanks for recommending HNI. It's a bit too stereotypical at times but it's quite interesting nonetheless. I've watched 20 eps so far. Your review was very in-depth :)

Hi, thanks for your appreciation! You're definitely welcomed to share your thoughts here.

I think what you said actually expresses the tragic sense of life expressed in The Wind Rises. A tragedy is a tragedy when happiness is doomed to be an impossibility because of different values, ideals or desires within a character have irresolvable conflict with each other. Jirou wouldn't have fulfilled his dream if he had chosen to commit into a normal life, nor could he have lived a happy with the one he loved, kept his hand clean from war atrocity, had he chosen to channel all his energy into his craft. Nietzsche himself even recommends a stoic, solitary life to those who wants to achieve something great. He is well aware that suffering (to others or the yourself) and solitude is what you have to pay for greatness. He himself lived a lonely, unhappy life which eventually has led to his mental breakdown at the age of 44. Human excellence and conventional values do very often have conflict with each other, and one of the most challenging aspect of Nietzschean philosophy is that its advise us (or those who have the potential to be great) to sacrifice conventional values for excellence whenever the former becomes an obstacle to the latter. He even advices us to look beyond mere humanity, in order to achieve something greater than humanity. So you're quite right that he is indeed encouraging us to break up with our natural human sentimentality (the need for love, recognition, security, empathy, etc.) if it becomes an obstacle to greatness.

I love K-ON because it's a perfectly executed entertainment show on TV anime standard. I think it's equally hard to create truly entertaining show as it's hard to create truly philosophical show. But I'm interested in why you think it's a Marxist Leninist Maoist show. (Is it a meme? haha) To me the show is great not because it has great philosophical depth, but in a way I would also say it embodies an idea of what a happy and fulfilling life should look like, and as an embodiment of a utopian vision, perhaps K-ON is more than what most people think it is.
