Sure I don't mind continuing the discussion here, that's fine.

1. I think the story was decent, and the 7 score reflects that I don't think it's bad, as 7 means good. I'm not saying it's a 5 or lower. I think it's like not enough butter spread over too much bread, to quote Bilbo Baggins. I also was not a fan of a lot of the supporting casts side characters. I don't think the first half of the show was amazing, there was a lot of boring interactions, it was honestly not that gripping and took ages to get going.

2. This point is fair, it's not right to compare an episodic show to a continous story in terms of freshness and staying interesting. I will retract that point and concede your point, you're right.

3. My focus of the point wasn't really on the fans, but the fans of Monster seem to not concede that it can be very boring at times, but maybe they aren't bored, you have to concede though that it's not an uncommon complaint about Monster, I am not the only person who found the first half of Monster to be quite boring and dull.

4. This is where I disagree most, and have the biggest problem, since Johan is the most interesting character in the show, I personally would have liked him to have a lot more screen time. I understand that it can add mystique and mysterious aires to the character, but to be honest I just wanted to see him function and exist on screen more. Johan is by far the most compelling character in Monster, not by a short margin either, the other characters just aren't interesting compared to him.
The MC didn't carry the show, I could make a comparison to Jojo's Part 4, where I personally did not like Josuke as the MC, I found him boring, and if it continued the entire way through like it did the first half, I would of hated it. Then Kira appeared, and Kira carried the show single handed and saved it.
I get the same feeling from Monster, and Johan could of saved it if only he had more screen time. I think the show could have been condensed and shave 20 episodes off and you would lose hardly anything, and gain more gripping tension and suspense.
I did not honestly care for most of the character interactions and establishment of the side characters, because honestly one of them were all that compelling or interesting.

Awesome. I've always loved football. Sometimes I find time to play here and there.

Recently, I've been revisiting some of the old games for retro feels, reading a bit and neck-deep in studying. It'll be like that for another year or so, the study part.

That is why I said that the show maintained its good qualities from start to finish lol
Gween_Gween Jan 21, 4:01 PM
You can read my review. The show maintained its good qualities from start to finish. I would say it gets even better by the fact that as you get attached to the story the actions of the characters start to get more weight and become even emotional
-fevered_being- Jan 20, 5:51 AM
It won't be finished much likely BUT that should not stop anybody to read it. It's short and, as they say, an absolute trip.

I'm sorry to hear that. Nobody should have went through it. On a positive side, you've improved and will surely get past this as well, my man. How are other things? Started anything new? Another hobby?

Hahahah yeah I love my about me, it talks a lot about me ;)

World Trigger has a rough start (generic premise, s1 with bad animation and fillers), but its good writing becomes more evident in the long run and it has some of the best strategic battles among battle shounen, with a well defined power system.
Nirinbo Jan 19, 2:55 AM
Praising BtR's creative visuals and musical performances is obvious, but there's another key aspect: a pacing that leaves no room to breathe, because there's always someone doing or saying some dumb shit in every single scene (I agree with MAL, this is a comedy and not a slice of life). I love quirky characters and that's why I was mesmerized even if I don't think it's one of the funniest anime.

Ha, I was just done uploading a review when I saw your comment. How have you been?

Happy new yeehaw! Only reaching out matters. I don't like too much of any festivities.

What's up?

Gundam The Origin is much more similar to Legend of the Galactic Heroes than Gundam 0079.

Stone Ocean as a whole might be one the weakest JoJo parts and sadly also the worst animated, but it has an amazing ending (that's why the score of part 3 skyrocketed to 9.00, it's not entirely because of recency and sequel biases) and it's always JoJo, the bizarreness and the strategic battles will never bore me.

First of all, long time no talk. Really sorry for not always getting back to you, it's been rough. Second of all, thank you for sharing this interesting thread, and here's my take. It used to bother me in the past how exaggerated the sexualization of female characters is. It still does sometimes, especially when I'm into the anime, but then I realized that that's how the industry works and how it thrives. The majority of the viewers are males, they're the target audience for many shows and the biggest demographic so it makes sense for the studios and the authors to tailor their works for them and make more profit. However, it can suck. Because of this, female characters are nothing but a tool or decor. Nowadays, it's so hard to find solid female characters that bring so much to the table and that are involved in the plot. As a female consuming anime, I would definitely appreciate seeing more females that aren't just there to please the male viewers. Like the person in the video said, females are not being heard and maybe they're not even voicing their opinions which is why things will remain the way they are. Generally speaking, I think the fact that the production of anime has skyrocketed compared to 10 and 20 years ago has contributed to the mediocrity of so many shows. I also believe that this has to do with the fact that anime became more mainstream in recent years to the point where the attention lies on attracting more people by means of fanservice.

What are your thoughts on the topic?
Nirinbo Oct 27, 2022 3:33 AM
They're very, very close. I like how DNT fixed the "same face syndrome" of many secondary characters (just look at old vs new Alex Cazelne), but on the other hand I prefer Kircheis and Reinhard's old character designs.
Nirinbo Oct 26, 2022 1:49 AM
When I rate anime I don't think about decimals, but at how close they get to the ideal level of enjoyment/quality I assign to each score. Adjusting the rating system meant redefining these levels (e.g. "somewhat enjoyable, I'll never drop it but I'm having a hard time keeping my attention" used to be a 5, now it's a 3).

You can export your list from your anime list page, which lets you download the xml file (it might be useful as a back up); you can open and edit it as a text file.
