Nana is missing a couple of episodes (ep 9 and probably another one, yt says that two videos are unavailable), not sure if you can find them somewhere else on youtube. Feel free to skip ep 6 since it is basically a repetition of ep 1 (it made sense when it was airing, not anymore)
Nirinbo Feb 20, 2:19 AM
It does work, thanks for letting me know even though if I were to rewatch Nana I think I'd look for the highest quality I can find (blurays)

Yeah the fan service though infrequent is still immature.

Oh if you read those threads let me know if you have any thoughts, especially since we never concluded our SEL discussion. I actually rewatched SEL for that debate. As for Texhnolyze I'm in the middle of rewatching it and I think it's even worse than I remember.
Recynon Feb 18, 5:28 PM
Hey man, I'm truly sorry for responding two months late lol. Stuff kept getting in the way and I also kept putting it off.

Gurren Lagann is probably the best embodiment of the shounen spirit, wherein the shounen spirit is the "try harder/just do it/overcome all obstacles in your way using pure willpower" energy. I usually don't like this kind of thing in shounens because it allows protagonists to brute force their way to victory when in reality victory in anything usually takes a lot of skill. However, here it's excused and fits because the context is that the protagonist and the rest of humanity don't believe in themselves, so the shounen message being shoved down your throat makes sense because people who don't believe in themselves really do just need to go out there and do it.

It's got nice character development for Simon in the first half, while the second half is arguably just a repeat of the message with amped up stakes. Kamina's death is put to good use rather than done just for melodramatics since it forces everyone else to carry on his legacy. However, none of the other characters stand out. Towards the end when people were dying in battle I didn't care for any of them or know their names.

It's got the trademark Trigger humor but unfortunately I didn't find it that funny after a while. So in the end, while I can't really knock Gurren Lagann for anything major and I respect what it does, my personal apathy for the characters and tone keeps this series from being a favorite for me.

I just mean they're one notch above the rest. If I rated anime differently, those 9 anime might have been my only 10/10 and the others would be 9/10.
Nirinbo Feb 17, 2:09 AM
yeah Belladonna, which was already at the bottom of my top 10. When I rewatched it last year, I didn't feel it was an 11/10 like my top 7 anime (now top 9 after including the recently rewatched Dennou Coil and Odd Taxi), but I still confirm its 10/10 according to the way I'm rating anime. Another 10/10 anime I recently rewatched is Hellsing Ultimate, still amazing but not an 11/10.
Nirinbo Jan 17, 5:05 AM
I don't remember exactly when I added it to my PTW, I probably read someone talking about it on AD. Not the kind of anime I expected to like, but it's working so far
Nirinbo Jan 17, 2:07 AM
I haven't rewatched either of them recently, I just felt like doing that since the last 2 spots in my favorites aren't exactly fixed. I definitely want to rewatch Odd Taxi since it's my only current favorite I've watched just once (the movie recap can't replace a rewatch), after that I'll make my final decision.

He didn't direct the opm one (at least according to mal), but yeah this guy's resume is stacked. and apparently he is pretty famous in the sakuga community.

Ryuu no Haisha has been sitting in my plan to watch list for a good while now, I think I had heard that it was meant to be a pilot for a show that was never made, and that was why I hadn't seen it... but I may be thinking of something else.

It's only 40 minutes, so I might watch it tomorrow!
APolygons2 Jan 14, 10:06 AM
so.... you know how some time ago we talked about episode 17 of jjk season 2, and how I compared it to mob s2 ep5 in terms of scale, visuals and directing, but then you said they are similar but that one is better because you said it was directed better....

so... I just found out something, that.... honestly I would have never expected in a million years lol:

but also... am kinda proud of myself for noticing without knowing it beforehand.

Credits to MAL user Deathko for discovering the hiddem gem Chikyuu Bouei Kazoku and talking about it on AD. What makes it so good to be the non-seasonal anime I liked the most in the last 12 months? First of all, I'm not surprised that those who loved both NGE and Kill la Kill (like Deathko and I) also loved this, even though I wouldn't say there's a certain direct correlation. To summarize: Tonal whiplash between the comedy and the seriousness of the issues of a dysfunctional family (divorce paper in the very first scene) + good old style animation (I hate the early 2000s aesthetics and this is from 2001, but somehow it looks like a show from the early 90s which is a very good thing) + very good and memorable soundtrack. The biggest issue is that it probably needed more than 13 episodes to fully develop the story and give a proper conclusion, one more cour would have been enough.

Aight, so, Last time I tried to explain this to someone It was a disaster, but I'll give it a chance lol

I actually removed you a very long time ago, probably a week after I added you, but it wasn't because you said or did anything wrong, nor was it because I didn't want to talk. we have had like 10 conversations since.

so what is the issue?

well.... uhhhh, my friends list.... is also my recommendation system....

now, the last guy who noticed this thought I was lying, but I promise this is actually it. I have an extension that let's me see the average score of the people in my friends list, when it comes to any entry on mal. so by only friending the people who have close taste to me, I can get a score that I am likely to mostly agree with.... now, It doesn't always work, but it is a thing I take into consideration to some degree when it comes to picking what to watch and what not to watch....

All that said, If you really want I will add you back, specially if you have a harder time finding me without it or any other issue like that. It's not really THAT important.

The most useful type of data like this that I had was ruined when mal changed the review system. I had a thing that showed me the average score of the different stats in reviews, so It showed me the average score of what the users gave to "sound" "Story" "animation" "enjoyment" and "characters". which was REALLY useful in seeing what aspects people like or dislike about each given entry, but alas, it's gone now....

I'm just rambling now lol

if you want me to add you back, I will.

Same old I suppose. Not much to say. How are you?
Nirinbo Dec 28, 2023 12:14 AM
Horror in anime will never be scary, but Dark Gathering does get way more creepy after the first few episodes. It was an ok watch for me, not amazing but I liked it; the scenarios always play out fairly differently, even though the basic formula remains the same (go to a place, find the ghost and deal with it).
Recynon Dec 24, 2023 4:09 PM
I actually only watched 1 ep. It seems very educational focused, with the characters and plot serving that purpose. The characters and humor style weren't great to me, so I didn't see myself enjoying it too much going forward.
It’s time to ditch the text file.
