I'm not talking about how much heart they put into it , I talking about delivery a well established narrative , with cohesive progression and an understandable conclusion which it did.
Now I granted that you don't like it obviously and that's fine but for me there is a difference between not liking something and assessing it to be good or bad, like I hate flcl, kill la kill and natsume do I think their bad hell no they think all the boxes a piece of work that can be appreciated and acknowledged for their solid story telling that's what I mean when I say "being unfair to the author" to put aside personal enjoyment and resonance. And there are some that I love that are quite frankly shit.

Well you're wrong , wolf children is great from a production standpoint and from a narrative standpoint it has a solid and dynamic cast and delivers some heartfelt themes along with it. So overall it deserves a possible 3.75- 4 stars out of 5 anything less or more would unfair to the creators and material.

Your review of wolf children is brash and unreasonable. But still an interesting read.

Nice Haibane review.
This show is really one of the most overrated anime ever, even with nice music and ABe design

Great review of Jin-Rou. I thought i was the only one who felt like this about the movie.
interception Oct 28, 2018 2:23 PM
Agreed.

Splendid Wolf children review man, couldn't say it better myself.

I agree, discussing a work down to the smallest details can probably be great. I haven't had much of a chance to do it myself, but I'd imagine it's similar to when I'm watching an analysis video or something of that sort on YouTube, and I'm like: "That's exactly what I was thinking!".

I've since last month, bought the box set, and am now 5 volumes deep and I think you hit the nail on the head with "comfortably tolerable". If it keeps getting better at the pace I feel it has so far, I'm not too worried about giving it the time of day.

Also, I was gifted the first volume of Berserk for Christmas and read through it over the holidays. I am a little skeptical on it to be quite honest. Writing's somewhat dull in my opinion and there isn't much of a hook. I've heard that it picks up by the 4th volume so I do want to give it a chance (If I can find the volumes for an ok price. Those things are not cheap).

I don't know if I could tell if I like what would be considered shounen about Claymore. As far as I know, the only bit of shounen I've read is the first 2 volumes of Naruto I had from when I was younger. I didn't hate it. I actually find the world really fascinating. Unfortunately it has a tendency to overexplain things to the point where it just feels like the characters are narrating the whole thing which leaves some panels feeling totally pointless.

P.S.:
Sorry it took so long to respond. Christmas and just life in general got in the way a little bit.

I got Dragon Age Inquisition for 10 dollars on PS store because why not, and I got completely addicted. I immediately bought the first two games as well and I'm nearing the end of the first one. These games are my life I swear.

You're welcome! I'm not very active anymore, either.

Hm, not really. Everything seems to be getting worse and worse. However, I am more than grateful for the 2nd season of Hoozuki no Reitetsu.
But, as you can see boldly displayed on my profile, I got back into video games, meaning that I'm not really watching anime anymore, at least until I'm finishing these games. I do, however, have to finish at least the 2nd season of Hoozuki.

How about you? How have you been?

After our last discussion my drive to watch anime is still going strong, so I might still be staying in this phase for long lol. I do want to get back to watching films sometime. There's a lot of stuff I haven't begun yet.

Trying to watch anime legally is pretty difficult around our area, so at the most I can do I have no option but to "questionably acquire" some stuff lol. Hope you enjoy Aria when you finally get around to it!

I'll admit that when I wrote that first reply I tried to sum everything up very quickly in case you were just looking for a 'yeah it was cool whatever' and I ended up looking a tad bit too excited.

Also very good observations, honestly I would have never associated his lack of motivation but stubbornness to remain in Lux being driven by the fact that he feels that he needs it whilst not exactly seeking it out.
I'm not good with trying to express my views and this might come off as me just not getting the show at all, however, I feel that they tried to portray the protagonist as so emotionally empty in the beginning that the idea of him caring for anyone else, especially Ran, just seemed a bit off.
That he cared so much about being the cause of ruin, when all he sought was revenge against his father in the end, or almost having beaten Doc when it was revealed it wasn't actually his mother cells on his new acquired limbs. It was constantly brought up that he remained the same through everything, that he was indecisive regarding what he wanted to do but at the same time him having changed so much.
It just seemed to have a bit of a discrepancy when it came to the protagonist, that he was the same whilst actually having things he felt strong emotions about.

I have a problem when it comes to rewatching anything, especially this type of mystery-ish atmosphere kind of anime, it is that the eagerness to know what's coming next just isn't there, because I can remember what is actually going on behind the supposed motives certain characters show, or what that line of dialogue that didn't come into the plot until later was actually about.

You made so many good observations and points that I have nothing to add really. I just agree with you, on everything. It was a kind of show that I would use to compare with other series, the contrast between the positive outlook and the bad. It made a very interesting point, even just the valiantness and determination needed to try to survive in such a broken down system/city even when they know they can't escape it.

Or just a big mess of my thoughts that i failed to try to organize coherently, hope I got my point across even if just a lil bit

Ah, thanks
