Thank you for your list "50 Great Anime of the Decade 2000-2009", it introduced me to Koi Kaze and it's pretty amazing.

Greetings

Hi there! I'd just like to say that I enjoyed reading your reviews on Nihon and I hope that you will continue to write them in the future. :)

I know you really enjoyed Tempest and I see that you have seen Spiral (which was by the same author).

I really didn't know like Spiral the anime (I gave a 4/10 to it because it introduced so many plot devices but didn't follow up on them). The adaptation was insanely terrible and was years before the manga finished serialising. I knew that the ending couldn't have been conclusive, but I wasn't interested in finding out what happens anyway.

Recently I finished Tempest and enjoyed it so much. Knowing that Tempest actually adapted the manga faithfully until the end, I thought the author must have a notch for writing up an entertaining story. I decided to give Spiral another chance and read the manga and see what they missed out in the anime.

I finished reading the whole manga over the last 3 hours, and I was really happy with it. I highly recommend the manga for Spiral. It's very similar to the style of Tempest and everything comes together at the end. I see that you have given Spiral 5/10 and I imagine your complaints with it will be very similar to mine. But we both enjoyed Tempest so we know what the author is capable of. That's why I highly recommend the manga.

I've always wondered, what episode from Minami-ke is your avatar from? I don't recall seeing it.

I recently finished Beck, and as I usually do, I thought I'd share my... thoughts. I thought at the very beginning I might not like it, but I ended up really enjoying it though I thought it left one or two things unresolved, and the ending was rushed as it tried to tie up several loose ends. I thought the characters were likable (apart from a certain few episodes). I think the romance side could have had more time given to it. I gave it and 8. Thanks for that one.

You, sir, are quite inspiring.
Great reviews!

Deciding upon an anime to watch, I decided on One Outs, and have started watching it, and have only realized just now that you mentioned it in one of your earlier messages. Clearly your words have managed to ingrain themselves in my subconscious.

Anyway, I'd like to request another recommendation if that's alright, I've recently finished the recommendations of Mai-HIME and Sora no Woto from ImperialX, both of which turned out to be very enjoyable for me, I rated them higher than you did, possibly because in the case of Mai-HIME because I didn't hate the ending as much. As I said to ImperialX, although it ruined the tension and took away from the spectacular last third, I was relieved slightly because I liked the characters a lot, and so I was more forgiving of the "happy" ending.

In the case of Sora no Woto, I happily took the advice of ImperialX and read the charts found on the Wiki, which proved beneficial to the viewing experience. Also, the soundtrack was lovely, I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned in the review. It's certainly one of the few moe shows I actually think are pretty good.

Anyway, getting back on topic, if you wouldn't mind giving a recommendation, that'd be great, thanks.

I just finished Taishou Yakyuu Musume, and if I were to sum it up, it's good light hearted fun. The cast was likable, and for the most part I thought it was paced very well, apart from a couple of episodes that I thought were unnecessary. Of course the issue of women in society was an issue throughout, but it was never dealt with seriously, not that I mind too much, I felt it all rather unrealistic to begin with, in that there was less of the "women stay at home and cook" attitude than I would have expected there to be. Anyway, I ended up giving it a 7.

Taking a look through your list, I noticed your watching list, and I wondered about how exactly you go about watching previously aired series, because you seem to have 28 of them on the go, which is a massive number in my mind. Are you really watching all those series simultaneously? I would have thought it detracted from the viewing experience of the individual anime watching so many.

I just started watching Taishou Yakyuu Musume, and for a moment I thought that it was a musical, in a way I'm slightly disappointed it's not. It's quite a cheery anime, I'll think I'll have fun with this one.

Also, I've been meaning to ask since I started on the Nihon Review forums over a year ago, who is the person in your avatar?
Infinite Jan 5, 2012 2:36 PM
Though you didn't strictly recommend it, I just thought I'd mention I'd finished Moshidora. I have to say I'm in agreement with you about the show,it was a very good show, though unfortunately I was spoiled, so the dramatic punch lost a lot of it's impact, it's just as well the follow up was so well done.

One thing I'd disagree about is that although the male characters are quite bland, I think that they weren't too bad given the time spent on them. They were all very genuine at the very least. The only real issues I had were some of the Seiyuu weren't that good, also it was a bit too short.

It's coincidental that I'm now about to start another baseball anime, which will make three baseball animes with Cross Game. I'm surprised at how many baseball anime there are actually.

I think I'll stick to the Daioh one... hope you don't mind.

Right, I've finished Akagi, which was good, but ended before it should have, which was a pity.

Anyway, I was hoping for another recommendation if you'd be so kind. Thanks again (again).
