Happy Birthday!

on the bright side, they were smart enough to understand their situation
pluvia33 Mar 22, 10:03 AM
Hmmm, I never got into Japanese pro-wrestling (or pro-wrestling in general), but that New Japan Cup sounds interesting. And yeah, if you feel like you have to force yourself through it, it probably would be best to just drop the AWC. Nothing wrong with getting burnt out or just not feeling like watching anime. It happens to everyone.

Man, I had a pretty hard cry to A Silent Voice when I watched it in theaters. I'm so glad that I went to see it by myself and there were few enough people that I wasn't sitting too close to anyone. XD I'm really annoyed though that there's still been no news about a US Blu-ray release for the movie yet. I've been able to buy your name. and In This Corner of the World, but still no one has released A Silent Voice. :(

Although I haven't read it myself, I've heard very positive things about the Golden Kamuy manga, so I'm looking forward to the anime. Hopefully I like it! Steins;Gate 0 isn't really a sequel from what I've heard, it's a side story, following the events of the "bad end" future, the side that the people in the events of the first anime get messages from or something. I'm interested to see how it turns out, but I was a little surprised to find out that it's going to have a 2-cour run. I would have thought such a side-story could have been told in 13 episodes, but I guess I'll have to wait and see. Hopefully it doesn't move too slowly. I personally thought that a lot of the first half of the first Steins;Gate series dragged quite a bit, but it made up for it later.

Oh, I checked out that translation project for the Doremi sequel light novels and looks like the ran into a lot of issues with keeping translators dedicated to the project. They got the entire first Doremi 16 volume finished and most of the second, but that's it. I started reading the first few pages of the first volume, but soon realized that I should probably wait until after I watch all of the anime stuff first instead of just the first season. Got hit with some spoilers. =P

Anyway, glad you're feeling a bit better and stuff! Talk to you later, dude! ^_^
CodeBlazeFate Mar 22, 8:07 AM
Ouch. That sucks. I hope you feel better.

I've been doing well. Watched Evangelion and loved it, as well as a few movies from last year, and now I'm catching up with the Winter anime season with Mahoutsukai, and then a few other shows.

haha that pun was pure Trash
pluvia33 Mar 15, 1:21 PM
Man, that sucks that you've been so sick. Glad you're starting to feel better, though. I got a pretty nasty sickness myself back around XMas time. I even put a medical mask on around my friends Japan-style while gaming so I would reduce the chances of getting them sick. It was a full month before I was completely over it. Bad times.

Yeah, I finished the first season of Ojamajo Doremi this morning before going to work. I really enjoyed it. It was really funny and touching; I cried at parts, but I'm a bit of a softie. =P And it looks like there's a translation project for the Doremi sequel light novels. Wordpress is blocked at my job so I haven't been able to check it out yet so I don't know how much they've translated or how good the translations are. If the translations are decent though I'll definitely try to read them after I've watched all of the Doremi anime. I'll most likely continue to watch the series a few episodes at a time after I've finished my Anime Watching Challenge.

Oh, and my turn for some shameless shilling, I wrote a blog post last week talking about how this year's AWC will likely be my last. TL;DR: I don't think I need it anymore to keep me on track with watching anime. I think I'm back in enough of a anime-watching groove that I don't need the AWC to push me forward. I am considering trying the Manga Reading Challenge next year, though, because I've really been slacking in that department.

Yes, as I said, Killing Bites is a pretty dumb, trashy show. But for the most part it isn't really furry. The men are usually the only ones that go full-anthro. The girls are mostly along the lines of nekomimi (or kemonomimi to be more accurate) with just animal ears and tail and a few patches of fur here and there. I'm definitely not trying to convince you to give it a try, though. Again, it is trash, totally anime-junk-food. If pictures/previews don't do anything to pique your interest, you're most likely best off passing on it as it's pretty much what it looks like: an empty, silly, bloody, fan service fighting show with an animal theme.

I'm excited that this season is going to be ending soon. It's been pretty enjoyable so far and it will be cool to be able to finish off 5 different shows on my AWC. I'm also looking forward to a number of shows like Steins;Gate 0, Amanchu! Advance, My Hero Academia 3, Golden Kamuy, and Mahou Shoujo Site. Hopefully they turn out well, not that I'm very hard to please. =P

Hey, it's been a while; how've you been.

pluvia33 Mar 7, 12:11 PM
Yeah, like I said, I wasn't expecting to enjoy Ojamajo Doremi as much as I am. Although I never got anywhere near finishing it at the time, I did watch a few episodes back in my late-teens/early-20s, a few of them fansubs and a few the 4Kids TV English version (Magical DoReMi). I remembered being amused by it, but I never got into it anywhere near as much as I am now. I'm really glad that I decided to get back into it for the Challenge (watching it from the beginning, of course). It was mostly between this or Tokyo Mew Mew to fill the 50+ episode item for my list. It's funny that I had almost the exact same prior-viewing history with Tokyo Mew Mew as I did with Ojamajo Doremi: one or two fansub episodes watched and a few random 4Kids TV episodes (Mew Mew Power). I'll probably still watch Tokyo Mew Mew eventually, but I'll have a lot of Ojamajo Doremi to keep me busy for a while. Traditional magical girl shows are starting to feel like an anime comfort food genre for me at this point, just light and happy fun goodness. I wish they would have made an anime adaptation of the light novel sequel series that they made where the girls are teenagers. Apparently they were considering it at one point and said it'd depend on how well the books sold, but since it's been a number of years since that statement was made (back in 2015, I think) chances aren't looking good anymore. I might have to look to see if anyone has done any translations of the novels. Otherwise I guess it would be added to my list of things to read whenever I actually buckle down and get fluent in Japanese. =P

Killing Bites episode 8 finally hit Amazon, but it was probably the most boring episode in the series so far, in my opinion. It's a really dumb show, but it's usually pretty good dumb fun. Hopefully it will pick back up next week because most of this week's episode just felt like set-up.

And man, hope you feel better soon, dude! It's really early in the year to already be on sickness #4.
pluvia33 Mar 5, 2:57 PM
Haha! Thanks for the "shameless shilling"; I just read the Cutey Honey review and it was pretty amusing. "Am I supposed to fap to them or not?" was probably my favorite line. XD It is kind of weird that they made a 25 episode anime out of a 2-volume manga. I think that might have been a product of the time, though. I don't think they had very many 12-episode anime back then and it was before there were all kinds of OVAs like they did in the 1980s and 1990s. I might still give the old Cutey Honey a watch eventually just as a curiosity, but if it's as bad as you said I'll probably end up dropping it after a few episodes. I don't have time to watch shit that I'm not enjoying. =P

Right now I'm actually enjoying the crap out of Ojamajo Doremi! I really didn't expect to like it as much as I have, but man, it's been really funny to me, and touching at time, and just generally good magical girl hijinks. I see that you have actually seen it and scored it a 6, but I guess that's not a completely horrible score coming from you. I'm already half-way through the series after just a week, which I'd say is a pretty impressive feat for someone who works full time, does a lot of tabletop gaming, and is keeping up with 7 currently airing anime. However, this week's Killing Bites hasn't popped up on Amazon yet which has really annoyed me and my roommate. We've really been enjoying that trash so far. =P

Other than that, I don't really have much else going on and it's almost time for me to leave work. Talk to you later! ^_^

I think music artists in the US still get pretty rich if they chart in the top 10. Although normal music sales to regular consumers probably doesn't make that much money anymore, really popular acts still make a ton of money on licensing they're music out for commercials and movies and from touring. The more popular acts don't need to tour as much throughout the year because they do bigger venues at higher ticket prices, but smaller bands and such pretty much have to tour constantly if they want their music to be their only job. But others can get lucky on a smaller scale, such as building a loyal following online and self-publishing their music or primarily being a YouTube act with over a million subscribers. It's definitely an interesting time to be a creative, not only for music artists, but all kinds of creators (writers, visual art, game design, etc.).

I'll definitely give Non Non Biyori a watch at some point, after I'm not hyper-focused on my Anime Watching Challenge. I have it waiting for me in my Crunchyroll queue. It didn't really interest me at all when it first came out, but considering your constant recommendations and the fact that I still see it talked about/referenced online despite it being a 4-year-old show does make me much more interested in checking it out. ^_^

I had to check your list to see which Cutey Honey you were talking about since there is so much out for that franchise. So the first, super old anime, huh? I've been meaning to watch the Re: Cutey Honey OVA, but I haven't gotten around to it. I was originally going to watch that as part of my Challenge for the Shoujo Ai item, but since I was already watching Citrus this season, I just swapped that in its place. I technically added the old Cutey Honey to my Plan to Watch, but I don't know if I'll ever get around to actually watching it, especially since there is a brand new adaptation coming out for it next season.

I still need to get around to watching Girls' Last Tour; again, something on my list for after I finish with my Challenge. But even though I haven't seen it yet, based on what I've heard about it, I don't think it's anything like Yuru Camp other than them both being slice-of-life shows. The settings are completely different. I guess "camping" might happen in Girls' Last Tour? But I wouldn't really call that the same thing as what goes on in Yuru Camp. But yeah, I'd be a bit iffy on recommending that to you anyway considering you weren't a fan of K-ON! as Yuru Camp has a whole lot of nothing going on. =P

As far as ERASED ending goes, it really didn't bother me that much. It was definitely jarring, but I didn't think it was all that bad. But personally I tend to go into story-based entertainment with more of a character focus instead of a plot-focus. Thinking about it from the other side, people who may have been watching it for the sake of the plot, to see how the story unfolds, I can see how the ending could have been disappointing for them. But also, in general, having watched anime for about 20 years now, I've come to terms with the fact that I shouldn't expect from anime what most people would consider a traditionally "good" (well executed) ending.

And yes, Pop Team Epic is complete trash and I would never attempt to make a case for why anyone should ever give it a chance. I watch it out of pure fascination of how stupid it is more than anything else. I honestly have to wonder why I'm entertained by the show sometimes.

I typically don't have much confidence in my tastes when it comes to trying to recommend things since everyone has different tastes and my tastes seem to be kind of abnormally broad. Whenever I put together a "Top" list, I tend to emphasize that it is MY Top List, that these are my FAVORITES and that I'm not trying to claim in any way that they are the BEST things around. If I do recommend something to friends, it usually includes me saying things like, "You should maybe check this out if you have a chance." And then trying to just describe the show and why I like it. Like with you, I have no idea what kind of slice-of-life shows I can recommend because you hated K-ON! but loved other similar shows. I can say that you'll maybe, possibly enjoy New Game! for example, especially if you have any interest in video game production, but I can't really make that recommendation with any kind of certainty. This is why I still haven't done a single Recommendation or Review on MAL even though I've been on this website for nearly 9 years.

Man, thanks for commenting back when you did. It's a really slow day at work and I need to do something to get the time to pass a little faster. =P

Yeah, when I mention feeling bad about the music industry, I'm really more concerned about the smaller artists who go through small independent music labels or self-publish their music. There is some really great music out there, but it's a lot harder to actually sell it these days since pirating is so easy and most people who legally listen to music just use Pandora or Spotify which don't pay much in royalties. It sucks, but artists are really forced to get creative and working harder than they used to (touring a lot more and such) to actually make a living. Some people may say, "Whatever, so they have to actually work; poor them." But really, I feel like people who make great art should be rewarded for the art alone and not have to be on the road away from their families 300 days out of the year.

Oh, so I finished Flying Witch last week! I enjoyed it pretty thoroughly. It ended up just barely getting a 10 from me and ranks at #54 on my list (although I might end up downgrading it to a 9 at some point along with some other stuff since having more than 50 franchises scored as a 10 seems a little high to me). A few of the episodes felt a little more empty than I would have liked, but other episodes more than made up for it and pretty much every character was likeable. And it's always fun to actually see an anime family that has both parents regularly at home! It's like seeing a fucking unicorn at your doorstep! It's also rather awesome how chill and cool with everything the parents are. "Oh, our daughter wants to train to become a witch? Have fun, dear!" Some of the episodes I especially liked were the whale, the robe-making, and their first trip to the cafe.

I kind of feel like I've been slacking on my anime watching lately, but looking back yesterday was the first day that I didn't watch any anime at all since 2 Feb. And I kind of have an excuse since I spent the entire day after work playtesting a card game that I've been working on with a friend. Sometimes hobbies get in the way of other hobbies. I should at least be watching the latest episode of Yuru Camp tonight and I might be finishing Date A Live II as well. Yuru Camp is a fun, chill slice-of-life show; one of my favorites of the season. And I watched the first Date A Live anime for last year's Challenge; it was kind of dumb, but still pretty fun, a lot funnier than I was expecting, and genuinely touching at moments. I am watching a lot of stuff right now, but for the most part I don't feel like I'm watching anime just for the sake of watching anime, so that's good. The only things that are kind of coming close to giving me that feeling are the new Cardcaptor Sakura (although I've enjoyed the two most recent episodes more than I'd been before) and sometimes when I'm watching the second half of Pop Team Epic. XD (yes, I'm actually enjoying that trash for the most part)

There were a few moments during last year's Challenge that I kind of started feeling like watching anime was becoming a drag, but then I'd switch shows and love the hell out of it and realize that it was just the show's fault for being boring/not my thing. Blood Blockade Battlefront was a pretty big disappointment for me last year because I'd heard a lot of good things about it, but then was just bored out of my mind most of the time. Trigun dragged for me pretty bad, too, in the early episodes; that was one of the things that contributed to my 5-month gap of not watching anime. But then even when I was rushing to the finish line I was still able to love things like New Game!, Death Parade, and ERASED.

Well, I probably shouldn't write too ridiculously long of a reply and I can't really think of anything else of relevance to talk about, so I'll just end it here and find something else to do to occupy the last two hours of my boring work day. Have a good one, dude!
