Hahaha I can feel you! I remember that up until 500 animes I hadn´t dropped any. But over the time I started to get tired a bit. By tired I mean... of enduring animes I was not enjoying. Then I started dropping here and then. My drop rate I guess it´s still low, because I still have this "maybe (this anime) might get better", but even so dropping here and then got to be a reaity.

Same here! I have realized that these past seasons my favorites aren´t the hyped nor the high scored ones. People tend to create false expectations on us by 'hypeing' animes, and when I start to watch it´s when I end up thinking: "this is not special/awesome as people are saying it to be". So it´s when I get dissapointed. Sure not all hypes will have the same outcomes of dissapoitment. Even so, usually, I am centered in my own enjoyment and opinion, and so the score I give depends on me alone.

Those rating scales.... and that is not unusual here on MAL. That is a big reason why mean scores aren´t trustful. I am usually strict to my own scores and I usually use all the numbers available. So when I see rating scales like that I go "noooooooo~~" hahahaha
I have seen people rating like this: 1 to all animes I don´t like; 5 to okish animes; and 10 to animes I like. Just using 1, 5 or 10. In other worlds, even a good anime can end up 1 or 5 on the hands of rating scales like that.


Exactly. Recently we lack 'pure' romance. By pure I mean.. focusing on the romace tag.
And now that you mentioned it... the SHOUJO genre has been more common? If I am not mistaken. It was as if romance left and shoujo joined the game xD Usually, we do have romance in shoujo, but you know what I mean. Shoujo gives off lots of cringy/cheesy romance. But what I wanted to see is a "normal" romance if I can put it like that.

I think it´s a trendy. There is this genre trendy, then after a few seasons it´s another genre trendy. The thing is how much certain trendy will last. I just hope the trendy I like most last a long time uhauhauhauhauhuha xD

Exactly! Also by watching less animes every year you start to be more selective in what you are watching. And those that aren´t pleasing you much, you don´t feel like spending much of your time on it (dropping ending haha).

After some time, I realized MAL mean score is not very trustful >.< There are very nice animes with low mean score, and also many high scored animes but that aren´t that good.
Recently (these past seasons), there were lots of animes with low mean score here on MAL that I ended up enjoying more than the high scored ones.
Curiously, I was discussing exactly this same things with someone else 2 days ago xD
People don´t know "how to rate" or many of them don´t take the score seriously. Some times either they will go BOOM score or "down the hill" score xD
I believe hyped animes have high score because many people let the flow guide them: If everybody is hypeing and enjoying, then I will enjoy too and here is my 10/10 score, something like that lol xD

PS.: Not saying all hyped animes are necessarily overrated or not good.

----

Yes... it was as if many animes started to lose their shine after the first half as if author-san started to run out ideas or something xD Or maybe the "exciting" aspect of us watching an anime started to fade away after some episodes.



Exactly! That kind of romance is a reality in 86
Like, it does not happens often, BUT, when you think they won´t do it ever again... it´s when they decide to add a cheesy romance scene like that and you go "nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! Please stop once and for all!!"

Now that you mentioned it, I also don´t remember when it was the last time I watched a true and good romance anime. I have noticed that animes like that aren´t common as they were before >.<
I have never watched Whisper of the Heart, by the way.
Just read your question. Unfornutely I can´t remember any romance animes on the top of my head right now >.< It´s been so long since I watched one >.< But if I remember any one I will drop a quick message here for you. PS.: If you also come across any nice romance, feel free to tell me.

I guess maybe we would have more luck looking for manga romance rather than anime romance nowadays *thinking emoji*

Exactly. I remember when I started in 2014, first anime I watched for real was Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai, right after I create a profile here on MAL. That time was remarkable cause it was when I joined as a rookie the anime world xD I am still here! Nice and good. But now as a veteran and dropping more animes here and then and probably with slighly less time? Hahahaha

Your second paragraph was all I needed to know. Good info I got there ^~^ Now I feel more relaxed and I hope to enjoy Spy x Family.

Oho~ now Summertime Rendering got my attention. I mean, I would probably end up watching it anyways, but after reading your paragraph it picked even more my interest.
I guess it´s one of those bad enjoyable animes? xD I can´t wait to see some pant- I mean, some comedy scenes xD

Hm, if you ever end up finishing Akebi-chan let me know your opinion about the 2nd half - if you remember.
I particularly prefer the pace and how they were doing things in the 1st half, but lately I started to realize how big is the amount of animes I end up prefering the 1st half over the 2nd.... I don´t know wether it´s a coincidence or not.....

Yes, even part 1 over the time started to have that sub-plot romance that makes me go "oh my.... *sigh* " hahaha
For example, there are few scenes where the silver-haired girl (Vladilena) is talking via telephone or something with the Mr. Cool MC (Shinei), then there are very quick times when they focus the camera on the girl´s mouth to show her smiling after hearing Mr.Cool MC voice xD as if deep inside she was saying "kya~~~ I think I am starting to feel in love~~" LoL Then things like that starts to get more evident over the time.
Even though they are quick scenes, cheesy romances like that are enough to bother me >.< hahahaha xD

I guess I got overexcited lol

Vi- Apr 17, 3:15 PM
I doing well, thank you ^-^

Hm, I understand you. I remember the times I used to watch every show I find mildly interesting. Well... I still do that xD but the difference is that nowadays I am dropping more of those shows when compared to the old days >.<

I am yet to know the shows if this current season. I am always 1 season behind - but that is on purpose (bingewatch or to watch a good amount of episodes in a row of that same anime).

However, naturally I noticed that Spy x Family is the hyped anime of the season. I hope there is not cringy/cheesy romance in that anime. I mean, they are a family and it´s natural romance between the couple, but I hope that does not overshadown everything else - I am judging there is more to the anime besides Family (i.e the Spy part).

Summertime Rendering I didn´t know about it.

Akebi-chan was a good anime. I specially enjoyed the 1st half; the second part was not as enjoyable as the 1st - in my opinion. But in general a good anime for what it is. Art and animation specially caught my attention.

Hm, so there might be romance in 86 part 2.
Part 1 had that sub romance between the MC and the silver-haired girl. And it was the type of cheesy romance that usually bothers me hahaha At these times I personaly prefer no romance >.<

Indeed, who knows part 2 isn´t better... I will watch and see how it will turn out to be..... >.<

Vi- Apr 16, 9:06 PM
Tommo01p, and here we are again, as good anime enthusiasts haha

Hope you enjoying this current season (meanwhile I am bingewatching the past season).

I noticed you dropped 86 part2, I know you haven´t watched much, but do you have any idea if there is romance in this 2nd season?
Sincerely, I have watched 86 part 1, and I think it was a meh anime (I really can´t see why people enjoyed it tis much since there are similar -yet low scored- animes out there).
So, I am planing to watch part 2 but I don´t want to have to endure any romance in this anime hahaha
If you could give me a light here...

PS.: I had read your last message, but there was nothing much to add (I would probably end up saying random or repetead things lol).

100% agree. some character arcs were so stunted i wasn't even sure what exactly was going on. probably doesn't help that i haven't seen the 1st season in a few years.
rtil Aug 11, 2021 12:03 PM
wishful thinking but i'd love to see a 2nd season. i think there's still a lot more they could touch on in the industry especially pay but maybe that's a sensitive subject.
rtil Aug 11, 2021 1:41 AM
i just wrote a shirobako review and then read yours and realized you already said everything i wanted to but better haha.
Vi- Aug 9, 2021 10:38 AM
That is good to know! I think nowadays home office became very strong after the COVID-19 pandemic.
I also did start to work home office starting this March (that was the first time I started to work).
You are planning to buy a gamer laptop? I currently have one (it´s an Avell Fox G1713 Fox). I believe Avell can be only find in Brazil, I think.
The moment you bought your laptop you will be very happy.

I see. Did you watch it via Discord or something with your friend?

I really tried to understand what was happening in the movie, but I just got the overall matter... the details I didnt understand much >.<
You know, that sensation you are watching something, trying to understand what is happening, and when you realize the episode is already ending? LoL That was what happened to me. And by not understanding resulted in less enjoyment =(

I agree with you; I prefer the happy-go-lucky. It always makes my kokoro better and happier.

There will be 6 movies in total O_O that will take some time hehe~
Vi- Aug 8, 2021 7:43 PM
Hello, how have you been doing?

I just watched Princess Principal Movie 1 and I did see you have watched as well.

Did you understand what happened in that movie? xD
I don´t have a clue of what happened... >.< just that the old man was a Spy... and that he would die at the end (those last minute were ve~~ry predictable >.< )

I am wondering whether the movie was done that confusing on purpose or if I was the one who didn´t get what was happening...

I know that Key came up with the entire plot ahead of time and just hired Ryu to write the script. I read in Japanese, that's why i can confirm. I actually don't like his prose, it's straight subpar and repetitive. The translation/localization probably fix some of the writing problems but I don't read them anymore. Compared to some of my favorite japanese writers (Maruto, Jackson, Setoguchi), Ryuukishi's prose quality is quite laughable tbh.
*Edit: I thought you're talking about Loopers in those brackets.
Nowadays I've developed a love for the Japanese language itself -which helps and also leads to me exploring contemporary and classic authors in addition to otaku crap-. Unlike English and other languages, a paragraph in Japanese can say so much about the writer's quality. Pretty much the reason why stuff like Umineko and Fatamoru are only big in the west/western fanbase. English readers can't identify the big flaws in those works.
But personally I don't think that prose is quite enough to decide whether a writer is good or not (unless we're talking about Nabokov) which is why I still like Ryuukishi. He has his own strengths too; for one, he may not have a perfectly conjuction and ellipses usage (they are overused to an extent) but his text and vocabulary are regardless of that, very rich.

Sadly 90% of the good eroge that I've read are untranslated. And even the rest 10% got mediocre to shitty translation quality.
I agree that most Japanese writers are pretty garb. But there's also an incredible amount of talent in the industry between writers like the ones I mentioned earlier, all of which I would put on the same level as famous, critically and academically acclaimed novelists.
Edocchi Jun 11, 2021 5:26 AM
Loopers is garbage, honestly. Writing is extremely preachy and repetitive. I can't believe Ryuukishi managed to create something that's worse than Iwaihime.

Ah, that's a shame. I just checked your vn list. You have read quite a lot of titles, but man you say thing like japanese writers are bad yet made no attempt to actually read the good stuff.
Edocchi Jun 9, 2021 5:39 AM
It may be just me not liking Higurashi's cast of characters, I think it gets worse with every chapter. I dropped it at around the middle of question arc, well I had seen the anime (and you know I didn't like it at all). Umineko also had a lot of issues, esp in episode 2 and 4, but there's some good individual moments to make up for the over the place and unnecessary convoluted narration. Still I think the worst Umineko episode is still pretty good. The adult characters in Umineko are very realistic, some of the most well-written I've seen, definitely the aspect where Ryukishi improved the most since Higurashi.
I've been recommending people to just stay away from Higurashi VN as the pacing will easily put them off and it's inconsistent throughout the series. Manga is a fine alternative imo. Compared to the anime, Higurashi manga has a much stronger sense of place, foreshadowing, and thematic approaches.

You might want to check out another Ryuukishi's work, Rose Guns Days. It has the weakness of 07th Expansion with rushed ending that gave off an underwhelming feeling, but looking at it from a bigger picture it's probably the most well-balanced work from Ryuukishi. The mafia unique setting makes it intriguing to read and feels very refreshing at the same time. It dives into some interesting political aspect doubled with an extremely likable cast of characters.
