In my mind, yes it is still worth the hassle. Particulary for rewatches, it gives you a new perspective on things, you may pick up on little mentions or hints that you wouldn't have noticed first time around etc. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Kara no Kyoukai in chronological order because of little things like that. It helps keep it fresh on rewatches, plus i am a bit obsessed with things like that, I can't help it, it's just one way that I personally enjoy a series, especially longer ones like that.

Edit: I have just realised it is far simpler for me than I thought. The DVD and bluray releases have each arc as seperate seasons. All I need to do is mix up the order I watch those in. I do agree that the release order is the way its meant to be seen, and its the only way I would recommend anyone else new to watch it in. But I really want to watch it chronologically for myself, at least once.

I haven't really heard anything good about Island, most people I've spoken to have hated it. But I knew you were looking forward to it, so I'm glad you've found something to like :)

I had a bit of a look into the chronological order of monogatari,and I'm not sure if I want to try it now...
First season is fine with just Kizu>Neko>Bake>Nise, but 2nd onwards is really messy. A lot of owari, the last season is set during and around the same time as 2nd. With these 2 eps between these arcs, those two there etc...it just looks confusing..... :/

I spotted that you're online, thought I'd say a quick hello.

Thanks for the reminder, I've just been crazy busy the last few days and I'm going to be for the next few too. My sister had a baby, I won't be able to catch the group watch. I'll watch it at my own pace soon and maybe leave some posts at the club discussing it, cheers anyway mate.

Okay I just finished Tada-kun - like, actually completed it - and WHAT ON EARTH?!!! That was, I think it safe to say, most definitely not the ending I was expecting. The relationship actually progressed so much through the last few eps, and there was great character development too. Now I can agree that the romance element was good.
Feels bad for Charles though, he gave up the person he loved most because he thought it would make them happy. So much respect...whoever ends up with him eventually (hopefully Alec) is the real lucky person in the anime.
Teresa leaving him to go to Mitsuyoshi is totally the sort of thing that would only ever happen in anime, so I'll just say 'it's anime' and not go into the details of how it would never work between them.
Ijuin was an awesome best friend.
And there, those are my thoughts on it :)

You're right, I still didn't like it as much as Nozaki-kun, but I have a soft spot for parodies and that was part of the reason I liked Nozaki-kun so much. I'll admit Nozaki could've done with some of the development Tada had at the end though.

If you come across anything else you think I'd like, please do recommend :D

Okay no worries, won't be able to watch it with you guys tonight I'll have to catch up later tonight, watch the four eps and catch you guys on the next one. No worries mate.
XavierMarciano Sep 4, 10:04 AM
Wood have you guys started Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and if so where's the thread to discuss it?
XavierMarciano Sep 3, 3:51 PM
You're at a point where it really starts to pick up, keep with it mate ­čśä
XavierMarciano Aug 31, 4:31 PM
Hey there mate thought I'd drop you a message before I leave for the night. I noticed you started Versailles no Bara, glad I helped give you the push on that one. How are you getting on with it? I know those early eps can be a little slow but stick with it mate.
AmishaelMA Aug 30, 2:57 PM
I finished Tasogare (!!), and tbh I'm not sure what to think of it. (I get that a lot with these types of manga.) It definitely did explore all those topics in a mature way, and the wedding was adorable, but a lot of the characters felt very one dimensional. I think the main problem was that the manga was too short to explore some things properly, and some issues never got resolved.
I'd have really liked to have learnt more about Anonymous for one, she was awesome.
That said, I can definitely see why you like it.

I think I'd recommend Kanojo ni Naru Hi for you next, it's a fantastic manga that covers some of the same issues but in a very different way. I loved it and think you will too. Plus, it's only 20 chapters :)

Oh, and here's your card XD

Didn't know they were giving Touch a breath of new life. I might give it a go.

Dezaki has pretty much made most of my all time favourite anime. He did Ashita no Joe (masterful), Versailles no Bara (masterful), Takarajima (masterful)... Three of my all time favourites. He also did Ie Naki Ko (great) and Space Adventure Cobra (really enjoyable). A lot of directors are hit and miss but Dezaki has so many hits. Including the first three which are as good as anything I've seen. If you're looking at old school great anime, Dezaki is a good port of call.
XavierMarciano Aug 27, 11:12 AM
You didn't miss much with Touch, I've watched that all the way through and it is very average. I gave Maison Ikkoku a 10(and I don't hand out too many 10's) and Touch only a 5/6 out of 10. Versailles no Bara is a drama/romance, I nearly dropped during the early episodes as I'd thought it might be too slow or girly but I have to say, as it went on, the fleshing out of the characters, the pacing, the plot, conclusion were all masterfully done. It's by Osamu Dezaki so you won't go far wrong with him helming a ship. Ya let me know how you get on with it, just stick with it during those early episodes, you won't regret it :)

Curious to know what prompted you to take the plunge with Maison Ikkoku or what brought you to it, considering you normally don't go for old school anime. I actually have a list online of top 100 anime ever and why I picked them. So I'll quote myself on why I put Maison Ikkoku at 4 on my top 100.

"Maison Ikkoku is the finest romance anime ever made, in terms of story structure, character development and emotional depth. If you look over this because it's of older animation then you really don't know what an incredible experience you've missed out on. Yes at 96 episodes it is long for the genre. However the story spans several years and this allows for real character and relationship progression.
It is one of the funniest and most charming anime I've ever seen. It managed to turn a big time action and science fiction fan like me into a believer that there is great romance series out there. This remains the finest example of a believable romance story in anime. Do not miss it.
P.S. This anime continually gets better as it progresses, the final 15 episodes of this anime are greater than any other romantic/comedy ever made. It delivers the most spectacular ending that you could possibly want in a rom/com. See this one out, enjoy the ride and I guarantee this will become a firm favourite of yours."

That's the advice I've given to people who've never seen it, but if you loved Maison Ikkoku you really should watch Versailles no Bara, or aka Rose of Versailles. It's utterly brilliant, fantastic characters, fantastic romance, it builds brilliantly and the payoff/ending is incredible for different reasons, still bloody cracking.
