How’s BnHA? I’m curious about the show since everyone seems to praise it to death while I’ve seen some just pass it off as “another one” of the shounen around.

I think the thing here is it shouldn’t be compared as much to S;G, at least from what I think so because they’ve got different forms of execution. S;G0 relies on shocking cliffhanger after shocking cliffhanger like a potboiler, while S;G slowly builds up its cliffhangers before it breaks free on the second half. On the visuals, I guess I’ll have to agree with you, but there’s nothing really much significant enough imo since the VN tends to focus too much on certain scenes while the show does a good job of summarizing it. Seems like VN readers were also liking the direction the show was taking, since the game doesn’t do that well in explaining.

Also Kagari will definitely be important later on, from what I’ve read in spoilers. It’s really hard since the game was one big mess of non-linear interconnecting routes lol.

Welp...it’s been a month dude, how’s it going?

To preserve the continuity of our discussion before it got cut off by MAL I bet S;G is going to get real twisted next episode. (I actually know some spoilers but I’m still excited to see what’s gonna happen)
TeKSMeLater May 25, 2018 1:25 AM
I feel like SoreMachi is as unpredictable as SZS, in that you can't know what happens next because of its nature as a gag manga. I teared up when Hotori "died", it really took me by surprise and the show became lovable (albeit for a few weak episodes, but overall it's the most fun I ever had watching a Shaft show aside from the Monogatari series).

Did you watch the new Steins;Gate 0 episode yet? Better get ready lol

Edit: Watch after-credits!

I’d love to hear more stories about that. It’s one of the reasons I really love Shirobako. I also like that fan-creator interaction is getting wider thanks in part to Twitter, but at the same time it has its flaws with detractors sending stupid death threats like that recent fuss over FranXX.

Yeah, I’ve seen it. Several occasions, actually, because I really appreciate any tribute to Daicon and Daicon itself. My favorite AMV is one big homage to Gainax and their works from their inception: https://youtu.be/Qy8J05uoKTw

Sakura is definitely the most underappreciated FSN heroine so seeing her finally be the focus is much welcome. I don’t know stuff from Heaven’s Feel (aside from a few...MAJOR spoilers) but I’m also excited to see more. I don’t think we have to wait that long though, I assume they’re going to release a film a year.

Saber Alter’s introduction was weird in that I don’t know why does it have to be depicted like Saber has a split personality when it’s just the same person entirely.

Wow, good stuff man! Good luck out there!

I certainly felt the hype. That was an amazing performance, both on their parts. I’ve only seen clips of Yoko Kanno with The Seatbelts on live performances of Cowboy Bebop before, and I didn’t expect her to be this cheery lol. Remind me to watch Escaflowne as well :P

Just took a look, MAL says the series director is Kenjiro Okada—I’m impressed that this is his first real directorial debut and his work has already gained that much attention. I’ve only watched Shaft’s OPs of the show, and I guess I can hope that they are as well-animated as the episode scenes since it’s Shaft.

I love stories of fans who eventually get to be collaborators with their idols. That’s honestly one of the reasons Daicon IV is one of my favorite anime of all time (watch it btw)—to see fulfillments of these people in the industry they once looked up to. Also reminds me of Ai Kayano’s journey to being a seiyuu.

How’d you enjoy Heaven’s Feel I btw? I made a review of it when I watched it in theaters: https://myanimelist.net/reviews.php?id=271016

Hey man, just went through finals, sorry for the late reply.

I’ve listened to that before, I was actually surprised that she’s already been involved with anime at that time. One thing I really respect her for is her stance on not doing character songs.

People seriously do that? I can agree that she may sound really irritating to hear sometimes but lol. Just listened to the song, how is she not well-known enough. I’m glad that she got cast as Manana in the upcoming Chio-chan adaptation though, I’ve been reading the manga and the role suits her down to a T.

Is it also true that 3-gatsu was personally directed by Shinbou himself?

Wow, I never knew that. I should check it sometime—it’s pretty sad that I only knew about them recently and they’ve been on hiatus since 2012. I just listened to Let Me Be With You for the nth time this morning :D

Dude I hope it’s also an anime film about making an anime film lol

Post-hype reply:

Interesting since I didn't really enjoy the song much, but like the OP's visuals. I think it was fitting, but probably I like the ED so much more that I appreciate DOWN TOWN less. Maaya Sakamoto OPs (from the ones I've watched) have been pretty hit-and-miss for me, I think there's always something lacking.

Nothing suits Hotori more than Chiaki Omigawa's voice. I honestly think it's her best role.

Well, that applies to all other Shaft shows though, they're very hard to describe. I don't know how they do it, but they always seem to have a way with blending their style regardless of the source material they're adapting, while emphasizing the strength of the source material too. The Zetsubou and SoreMachi manga seem to not differ from their anime counterparts, but you can recognize it's Shaft.

Wait, Round Table did music for SoreMachi? Where'd you find out? They aren't credited on their MAL pages.

SHIROBAKO IS GETTING A MOVIE
TeKSMeLater Apr 26, 2018 8:40 AM
That video was pretty good. It actually made me consider watching Manabi Straight, and convinced me to finally try out HidaSketch. I’m going to watch that as soon as I get ahold of it.

I feel like it works on the same atmosphere as K-On based on what I see, so I’m interested. I hope Liz and the Blue Bird can improve Hibike. As much as I admire the series for its technical prowess and interesting characters (obviously Kumiko heh), I always felt a sort of disconnect with the show and the second season as a whole was just unenjoyable for me.

Yeah I think that earns a top spot in my favorite OPs too. I just feel sad that the anime ended adapting like that. Seemed like DVD sales were low compared to how much of a breakout hit S1 is so it just stopped like that entirely. I love Ringo Mogire Beam as a song, but I think I still prefer the Kuusou Rumba rap. That gets me jamming everytime lol.

I wanted to keep reading the manga but I felt like the anime was enough of an experience for me to know everything about the franchise so I went ahead and read the last 10 chapters. I got spoiled about it early on but that was a really perfect ending to the series. Feels like Monogatari where everything was already set in place before we even knew it.

On the topic of Shaft, how’re you liking SoreMachi? It’s probably Shaft’s most underappreciated show. No one I know even talks about it.
TeKSMeLater Apr 20, 2018 8:15 AM
Yeah, that’s the primary reason I avoided this show for so long. I remember being young and riding along with the bandwagon expressing undeserved hatred for this show lol. Arrogant ones don’t know what they’re missing, though. It makes me sad how underutilized the CGDCT genre is though after it, since there seems to be a wave of them every season and I don’t think they’re really as regarded as K-On. I could be wrong, but just some outside observations.

I just checked out Digi’s video on the K-On anime being an adaptation—I really gotta commend Naoko Yamada now. I want to see more of her work in the future. Tamako Market should be next for me, I guess.

By the way, after going through all possible Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei content I gotta say this show defines Shaft, not Monogatari. Zan Bangaichi’s second OP is probably the best Shaft OP I have ever seen, too. Three minutes of pure animation wildness. Do you know about the manga ending?
TeKSMeLater Apr 15, 2018 1:38 AM
Episode 20 really hit me that I've become attached to these characters so much without even noticing it. I think after that, I finally understood what makes it an endearing experience. Why do people hate this show? Everything beyond Episode 20 was equally as heartbreaking. I haven't cried this much since Origination lol. The only difference is that it's also making me laugh at the same time.

I'm gonna watch Keikaku and the film shortly after, I'm just taking a break because I'm too struck with how good it is right now and I need some time to stop crying. I think I liked Azusa more after the last couple of episodes. If S2 was already this great then I need to prepare myself for the movie.

Good thing you got around to watching it the time the seventh S2 OVA just got fansubbed. There's more that the franchise would offer all the way up to 2019 lol.
TeKSMeLater Apr 12, 2018 9:07 PM
I really agree about Crybaby’s visual style. It seemed...boring for a Yuasa work. I mean, sure, it does convey Devilman nicely, but there’s something about the way it looks that puts me off, especially coming off of watching Tatami Galaxy before. But yeah Universe looks worse lol.

Mugi is underappreciated I think mostly for the fact that she’s never really given a significant amount of focus compared to other Keions. You have entire episodes about the rest of the K-On’s lives but she never gets one that’s remotely significant to knowing her character. In being replicable, I’d agree about Yui being hard to imitate. Though I feel like I can’t enjoy Yui’s character without the other characters, which is why I can’t take much interest in her.

I just reached Episode 20 and I teared a bit inside. The emotions in that whole episode felt so nostalgic and real. I’m considering an 8 now lol.

It probably has to do with me wanting to watch the stuff I’m watching along with K-On, because I feel like if I binge it I might not be able to balance it out and get behind the other shows. It’s hard to binge the shows I decided to watch along with it.

I’ve got a bit of a love-hate relationship with SYD in general. I prefer reading the 4-koma, but the anime adaptations have some standout moments that make it enjoyable. I do believe S2 of SYD is the best entry in the franchise, but after that (at least in my opinion) it goes downhill. I still have to watch the film though. Watching the anime really makes it fun because of the voice acting, especially when you know who voices who (try to guess who my favorite character is).
TeKSMeLater Apr 11, 2018 7:58 PM
Iirc a lot of VAs are going to be voicing Honey in that show, which is kinda weird. From the OP of Universe alone it feels like just another seasonal anime which kinda sucks, since I was expecting a grand reboot of what Cutie Honey is. Re Cutie Honey’s OP has been stuck in my head ever since hearing it before lol, I got interested in other Go Nagai works after Devilman Crybaby.

Well it would be a minute long if I decided to add in the context of the scenes, but the NANAs sound so seamless that I opted to just include the NANA parts. Hope someone makes a Hahi compilation next time :D

I wonder how I’d feel about it when I rewatch it. From my experience right now though, I think S1 is nice and S2 is a very enjoyable watch. I have to stop myself from wanting to binge it lol.
Even in K-On we have similar tastes lmao. I’m rotating back and forth on who’s my favorite Keion though, I started off with Mio but the gags about her kinda got stale in S1 so I shifted to Mugi (who did nothing wrong with the strawberry incident). Right now though, I still like Mio a lot, but the few moments where Mugi becomes the focus is golden. Have to admit though, I’m not much into Yui (and at times I prefer Ui instead) but all of their character interactions makes every episode impossible to watch without one of them around.

I’m still having a hard time processing that Yoko Hikasa and Satomi Sato are in SYD, plus the fact that Satomi Sato also voices Chitanda
