New series actually follows the rules though. I think it is harder anymore for me to go back to the old one because I just go "omg stop" on the duels. Duels are very unenjoyable. Relationships are better in the old series. But that is coming from someone who actually plays the game.
Rotton-Girl Jun 27, 12:54 PM
Well yeah, they follow the rules now. Part if it for sure.

Watching Yugioh? What you think?

"Even my ultimate nemesis Sword Art Online (which I still think was a worse experience than this one) does not throw as much shit into its story."

Hahahahahhaa. Your Mirai Nikki review was fun to read. And I agree with pretty much everything you wrote in it.
Ataccot Mar 14, 8:13 AM
Ah, another joint review. Regardless I would look forward to reading it. Thinking about starting S2 very soon since I caught up on most of the other seasonals faster than I thought I would. Good to hear that Baby Steps S2 is an improvement. Seems like things will be on a larger scale, so that should be fun to see. That's nice, tennis looks pretty fun though I've never tried it. I've never played sports or been on a team, so the limited knowledge I have comes from seeing them on TV in passing and I guess the time I spent in gym class. Imo most of the characters in sports anime look rather dull at a glance (Maruo is interesting though), but then again I haven't seen much. Can you recommend any sports anime with great characters? Also, what are your favorites? I've seen a lot of people hyped over shows like Haikyuu and Kuroko no Basket, but I never saw the appeal of them. That could be true in some cases, but it still feels like it's easier even when I have multiple episodes to watch to catch up on them. Maybe because they're new and fresh I'm subconsciously more motivated to watch them. Idk lol.

I'm not really sure whether it was a good idea. While Heaven's Feel in movie format will no doubt have better production values than the TV adaptations, each movie would have to be 3+ hours long to come close to the duration of the TV series. The bad thing is that it's the longest route of the three. I'm just going to be optimistic and hope they're perfectly optimized without missing too many important aspects, but I already know a lot of important inner monologues are going to be cut out just like in UBW. If nothing else, at least the animation and soundtrack will be great.

Oh, so you do make exceptions sometimes. Lol Mirai Nikki, I watched that so long ago that I can't remember if I actually finished it or even how I felt about it. I may have actually liked it since I was much more of a "casual" back then...Might rewatch it some time in the near future and see how my mindset has changed. I want to have eventually watched all of the top 100 most popular anime anyway. Nice review btw haha.

I see, so you're more flexible when it comes to TV shows. I can't recall the last time I actually sat down and watched a TV show all the way through. Most of the stuff on TV nowadays doesn't seem all that interesting to me, and then there are those shows that have hour long episodes that look like they would be a chore to go through. Yeah, I don't think I would ever stop watching a movie I wanted to see, even if it's terrible. As for video games, I may try to be a completionist for games that I really like, but other than that I'll just play the content I want to and be fine with that. I don't play very many games anymore though. (Yeah, the second season of Iron-Blooded Orphans. Looks like people are really liking it given the rating, but that could just be the fans of the first season. I personally couldn't get into it at all.)

Whatever is most comfortable for you. Heh, that's understandable. I would probably try to do that if I had a #1 favorite anime and could reference it. It looks like there are a lot of designs to choose from, but most of them are based on the most popular anime.

Greetings Tpfang56, I saw that you watched a few Winter 2017 shows.
At the Anime Guild our main specialization is being a Seasonal Club. We are getting close on making that final turn this season.
We do choose the best Opening, Ending, Character and of course Anime of the Season with also a Discord Channel and a Power Ranking Group.
If that seems appealing to you, make sure you participate in our activities for the rest of Winter 2017 by joining our club.
I have already sent an invite as well as provide a link to our club ^.^ - http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=63899

Well, I'd love to read a review of Rakugo S2 from you. I just read your Baby Steps review and I must say it was pretty well-written. Funnily enough Baby Steps was one of those shows I recently finished after dropping a while ago with only a couple episodes left. So it was nice being able to relate all the positive and negative points you mentioned in your review. Maybe I'll watch S2 at some point, since I remember being interested in the tennis aspects, which is rare since I'm not really into sports anime. I guess it depends on the kinds of anime you look for within the demographic, since they can be quite broad. Don't forget the same demographic that contains dark thrillers also contains CGDCT shows and similar things. I've found that most seasonals are even easier for me to get through than some good or potentially great finished shows are, regardless of quality. Not sure why exactly.

Thinking about it more, I kind of know what you mean. I like so many characters that making an extended list of favorites might become too excessive, but at the same time I'm not attached enough to most of them anyway; so it makes me wonder if it's really necessary. Well, it's your profile, so it's up to you what you want to put on it. If you think a favorite characters section would be worth making, go for it. Yeah, it would be Heaven's Feel spoilers. So I'll just say that, while I like Kirei in all of his appearances, his ideology and the role he plays in HF is what made him one of my favorite characters. It's one of the reasons I'm really looking forward to the upcoming movies. I just hope ufotable does the route justice.

I figured this method would have problems like that. Although it helps me to remember that, even if I do delete or drop an anime, nothing is set in stone. I can always pick it back up if I'm ever in the mood for it, and that actually may be the best time to watch it. Not sure how much that way of thinking would help you, since you're rather dedicated and dislike dropping anime. Making a separate pending list sounds like a great idea though.

I can and can't understand that at the same time lol. While I do have some OCD habits myself, I've never particularly cared about being a perfectionist in regards to watching series. I see where you're coming from though. But yeah, the best thing would be to just pace yourself if you ever feel like it gets to be to overwhelming. And yes, being selective for Gundam would be a very good idea.

Ah, Yuu Yuu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin. They seem to be rather highly regarded, so it probably won't be too difficult for you. Nah, that isn't petty. That would actually be kind of neat haha. Only do what you can handle though. At least by watching one at a time you can be more focused and less likely to overwhelm yourself.

Hello just a passerby-er on your friends list to wish you a happy birthday, I hope you have a lovely day!
Ataccot Feb 25, 9:11 AM
Oh cool. I'll give it a shot then.

I was originally waiting for it to get well into the season so that I wouldn't have to watch every episode week by week, but I put it off longer than I had planned. I may just wait for it to finish airing at this point, since I still have a lot of other things to watch too. Although I am a little more inclined to watch it soon now that you mentioned that perspective-changing reveal. I haven't seen any of those Josei (besides a little of Shirokuma), but I've heard mostly good things about them. I might explore the demographic more sometime in the future so I can get a better understanding of it, but so far nothing has truly disappointed me. Even if the variety and selection is limited they all seem to be handled with a certain degree of care, which is very nice to see. I personally think every demographic (as well as genre) equally has the potential for good anime, which is why I don't have a favorite.

Same here. I have a lot of characters that I like, and it was very difficult for me to decide who goes in the favorites section. But like you I also don't stay too attached to characters for very long, save for a handful of them. I'm thinking about making a favorite characters section in "About Me" since a lot of people seem to do it. Maybe you could consider doing that too? Heck yeah! Kirei is an awesome character, and is actually quite unique among antagonists. He's in my top 3 out of Fate/Type-Moon, if not my #1. I would go into more detail about why I like him so much, but it might be spoilers.

Lol, I'm rarely dedicated when it comes to my watching habits. I'll probably just whittle down my PTW to anime that I REALLY want to watch, and then not add anything else until I've completed it, barring seasonals. Yes, and my dropped list will most likely become even longer in the future :p. Is there a particular reason as to why dropping anime annoys you? It must be nice to finish longer anime though, almost like an accomplishment; I'm so bad with most long anime haha. I was just recently re-motivated by seasonals after not wanting to watch anime for a little while, since everywhere I frequent people don't stop talking about them. Man, wow, Lupin III has so many side stories, and the sequels seem rather long. MSG is a pretty big franchise too, but I think certain series can be watched standalone without missing much.

That's nice that there are different difficulties and the choice of restriction or no restriction, makes it more accessible at least. Still not sure if I could handle it, since my interest fluctuates so much. Sometimes I wish I could more often focus on one series at a time, complete it, and then move on, but most of the time it just doesn't work that way for me.
Ataccot Feb 21, 5:40 PM
Kaiji is that good huh? I might have to add it to my PTW. Which season did you enjoy more?

Yeah same. It could use some improvements, but it's getting there. Still pretty nice as it is though.

That makes sense. I also thought the stories were a little on the boring side at first. Well, mainly Kikuhiko's. I kind of enjoyed the ones Sukeroku and Yotaro told, given their more comedic approach. But as the series progressed the Rakugo performances as a whole grew on me when I honestly didn't think they would. I began to really appreciate them, especially Kikuhiko's last performance of "Shinigami"; just great stuff. Honestly, my feelings about Josei anime are somewhat mixed. I loved Rakugo of course, and also Usagi Drop, but as for the others I've had experience with, while I could appreciate their quality they just didn't seem like my kind of thing for the most part. It also seems harder to judge the demographic when it isn't as prolific as the others. I do agree that it could use more variety though. The only action Josei I've seen (part of) is 07-Ghost, but imo it's pretty average sadly.

Yeah, you're right in that good characters are more important in certain genres. Anime with lots of action can usually get away with poor characters if at least the MC or another prominent character is good, or if it makes up for it in aspects like animation, soundtrack, enjoyment, etc. Meanwhile genres where characters are the main focus have to be a lot more careful with how they're handled. Lol same in regards to attractive characters, as long as they don't have completely terrible or nonexistent personalities anyway.

I honestly don't know. My PTW list changes often since I tend to add and remove anime on a whim. Even as it is now I don't think I'll end up completing everything on there. I have quite a few anime I started that I still need to finish, and I also have seasonals to catch up on. Plus I usually have to be in the mood to watch things or else I just feel like I'm forcing myself, which is also the reason I don't hesitate to drop an anime if I don't feel motivated enough to get through it. I also feel like this may be less of an anime year for me. The Anime Challenge looks rather overwhelming in itself, good luck!


snafu_ Feb 13, 7:51 PM
Such a late response despite me being the one asking, I'm sorry!

Thank you, that's actually a really helpful answer. That sounds like something I could probably handle. I usually try to stick to the cleaner, "newer" animations but Mononoke has always felt interesting to me. But the art was really throwing me off. Honestly, I'm currently watching NGE and it's taking everything in me to get through it, I don't want to drop it if I can help it. It's actually really exciting to hear that there's none of those tropes though, especially any tsunderes. Sometimes the classic stuff is what's best.
I've never heard of "Unmoving Plaid", I knew of the style but never knew it had a term. Interesting. Also never heard of Gankutsuou, maybe I'll look into that as well in the future!
Based on what you've told me, I imagine I'll like it just fine. At the very least, I likely won't drop it.
Ataccot Feb 11, 4:31 PM
Ah, I see. Depression is no fun. Hope you feel better soon.

That's good to know, and the variety probably keeps things fresh. The main problem I had with Akagi was that it didn't offer much in the way of an explanation about the rules of mahjong. Although I didn't watch much of it, and apparently it explains more about it as the series progresses, but I wasn't interested enough to continue watching. Maybe your opinion on it will be different.

They most likely will. Even if the updates are just minor things, I'd been fine with that. IIRC the last big update was the modern layout, which happened shortly after I started using this site. It didn't go over well at first, but eventually people adapted to the change. Anilist looks like it has a lot of neat features, but from a practicality standpoint I feel like a lot of people (myself included) wouldn't find much use for most of them.

Oh that's nice, especially the part about Kikuhiko still having a lot of screentime. When I first started watching Rakugo I wasn't initially sold on the performances. Only when I got to know and care about the characters did I begin to enjoy the performances much more. So hopefully I'll start liking Yotaro and Konatsu more and more, as I did with Kikuhiko and Sukeroku in the first season; from what you've said I have a feeling I will. Yeah, I agree that anime like Rakugo are quite a rarity nowadays.

Well I'd prefer getting into the characters over liking the animation, but if I end up liking both that would be great. I'm fairly open when it comes to genres and demographics, but I am guilty of looking at reviews to see whether something is really worth watching. Studio and voice actors too occasionally, staff not so much as of now. I've been gradually removing shows from my PTW list because it gets to be so overwhelming at times lol.

Hmm I'll do that then, if only so I'm not just retweeting stuff all the time. Maybe it will also help with putting myself out there.
snafu_ Feb 8, 1:00 PM
Hey~! Thank you for accepting!

I see you thoroughly enjoyed Mononoke, do you mind if I ask what you liked so much about it?
I've been thinking about starting it once I've caught up on my older stuff, unfortunately I'm one who tends to judge whether or not I'll watch something based on the art style, and Mononoke seems a bit different than my usual. I've also heard that it doesn't fall under the expectations of Horror.
Ataccot Feb 2, 2:09 PM
Personal stuff?

Is Kaiji good from what you've seen? I tried watching its predecessor, Akagi, but just couldn't get into it (I know nothing about mahjong lol). As far as I know Kaiji has more variety in gambling.

I took a quick look at Anilist and Kitsu, and while they definitely seem more aesthetically appealing, they seem to have too much going on for my taste (especially Anilist). MAL is most likely so much more popular because of its simplicity, consistency in scores, and larger library in comparison to everything else. Plus it's been around for quite some time and is established, forums aren't dead, etc. At least you can customize your profile and lists a decent amount depending on your knowledge and skill level.

Yeah, I also like Kikuhiko and Sukeroku more. Disregarding the relatively small amount of screen time Yotaro got in S1, I didn't think he was that good of a character. So I'm afraid S2 might be a drag if it focuses on him too much. Although I haven't started S2 yet, so it might surprise me. Hmm, I might try OPM first because of its greater popularity, and save what may be the better show for later. What kept me from watching MP100 as it was airing is that it just didn't seem like it would be all that appealing, and its score was fluctuating so much. Although now it has a score of 8.55 so it will probably be a good watch. I know it's probably a bad thing, but scores tend to influence what I watch a great deal. Like if an anime has a score of 7.9ish or higher I think it will be worth my time and will be more inclined to watch it, and to a greater degree the higher the score. Sometimes I also look at how many favorites characters in a certain show have, since likable/quality characters is very important to me. I'll give stuff with lower ratings a chance if the synopsis is interesting enough though, with mixed results. I'm not sure when I developed this habit, but for the most part it works for me, with some exceptions of course. Pardon my rambling.

Haha, good to know someone appreciates the stuff I retweet. Still not sure what I'll post in regards to my own content, but I'll probably continue RTing stuff that looks nice. Politics is a mess. Who isn't distressed at this point?
