Oh my… I actually got an email notification and got on top of my game in timing response for once now xD

Sorry I didn’t want to make you feel like I was making excuse, though in all reality, I probably was. I just didn’t feel like telling others “I was busy” …it just never seems to sit well with me when it’s used on me so…

Some Korean manhwa/webtoon I would recommend is Dohgo. It’s about these this brother whose twin got bullied and died. He then duped himself as the twin (whose classmates thought was only being hospitalized) to come to this school and tried to figure out/revenge the death of his brother. It isn’t a particularly phenomenal read, if you have been reading other works on bullies, but I like the crisp and realistic nature of the story. The main character isn’t a hero for sure, but he isn’t exactly an anti-hero either, he is more of an “accomplisher” that will *utilize* (m)any means possible for his goal. This is completed so if you want to try out, it might be a good start.

The other I would say is Wind Breaker. This series is more “sporty” – it’s about bikers. I imagine you wouldn’t be terribly excited about this, and neither was I, but I enjoyed it much more than I thought. This one is still ongoing though.

About Kuroko – that was 4 years ago when I first watched a sport series (not counting HNG a decade ago, which I should have considered as “sport” as well)…. I think I enjoyed certain matches, but at some points, even knowing that it was “miracle play”, it was still too much for me. I didn’t mind the “supernatural” aspect of it, but I honestly couldn’t like the “forced” victory that Seirin was winning. It just seems unbelievably unconvincing and it tired me out.

Hahah I sensed a bit of sarcasm in that comment regard YOI…. Well, I don’t know about others, but it’s definitely nowhere near a “masterpiece” for me… I think it does have quite a “mature” theme, considering the main character is an athlete in his later path of his career (being mid-20 in figure skating isn’t terribly young). This might surprise the majority YOI fandom, but I did not watch it for the yaoi bait. In fact, I was very skeptical that it was just another… Free!... (season 2 was better but still…). But I did enjoy the skating performance. I think the character development seems abrupt at times (with certain characters), but overall, I still consider it to be generally decently-written. I would suggest not going into this series ready to be mind-blown though. I think the fact that I have very low expectation for this series allows me to enjoy it a great more deal :-)

Actually the one fandom I was having problem with is Diamond no Ace (or Ace of Diamond), which I wouldn’t be surprised if you have not heard of it. I think it’s one of those long-running series that is actually about sport and is good. I really do like Haikyuu a lot, for the humor, characters and all, but I think overall, DnA is a better sport title. The problem with DnA is it is a bit “generational” – meaning, unlike most other series where the main team lost a few matches (the inter-high) then won the Winter/Spring cup, DnA’s main team (Seidou) loses… a lot. And so we see generation of seniors graduating and this team is still… growing. But all in all, I think it’s very realistic considering the extremely competitive nature of baseball in highschool in Japan. Now the problem that fan has is… DnA’s “protagonist” is Sawamura, who dreams of becoming a pitcher. Since he joined Seidou, a nationally competitive team, he has met and faced great competition from his rival and supposedly *genius* pitcher Furuya. Through hard work, Sawamura managed to be on the 1st string, but the starting pitcher (after roughly 100 episodes) is Furuya (it was actually a third year for the first season which spanned 60 something episodes). So the problem fans have is Sawamura – despite being the “protagonist” – is still a relieve pitched, and “not appreciated” unlike Furuya who “only has the fastball pitches and makes lots of mistakes.” I honestly don’t want to go into extreme details, but I can say one of the reasons I really enjoy this series is because it is realistic, and I enjoy the fact that the MC is pretty well-developed despite not hogging all the screen time. I don’t particularly love Furuya, but I think it’s a bit antagonizing to penalize him over his obsession to “monopolize” the mound (which is shared by any pitchers, including Sawamura tbh).
Sorry I know you’re not very into sport anime, so that wasn’t terribly exciting I supposed ^ ^”

As for Magi… I actually never watched the anime. I started reading the manga when it was out for probably 10 chapters lol. So I guess I had a bit of an attachment issue. I enjoyed certain arcs, and I liked Morgianna as a character. But at this point – it just seems really ridiculous and over ambitious – like it tries to accomplish a lot but without a more natural build-up process. I guess this doesn’t make much sense for you though ^ ^”.

For Durarara - I don’t know, I think for me this season, the new cast didn’t seem to intrigue me a lot…. maybe I just need a more non-stressful time to re-watch the season.

Waaaahhhhhh thank you so much for the detailed suggestion xD I know this can sound really lame but right after that post, I got flooded with work because a couple of my colleagues went on maternity leaves x"P good for them though....

Oh you are? May I ask what kind of comics? Is that like the Marvel/DC ones? My best friend is the biggest nerd there is for the star wars comics... maybe I should try them out sometimes ^ ^ and actually, I have not been keeping up with manga lately, except for the few titles I'm still following like Gintama and Magi (this one really gets on my nerve now though...). Instead, I have been really into Korean manhwa recently xD I think they are pretty good, and they don't drag on... they get good, great and end :D

Oh and yes... actually before I was having this ehm... discrimination (?!) or prejudice I would say ....for romance/shoujo titles. I think when I was in junior high, my cousin really over-"fed" me with extremely cheesy shoujo romance series, hence my extreme avoidance of it. The last "shoujo" title I read was Natsume Yuujinchou, which I guess isn't really a typical "shoujo" except for the fact that it was serialized in a shoujo magazine. I did watch Nozaki-kun and quite enjoyed it (if you haven't already, and are in a mood for something light, that's pretty fun to check out as well ^ ^).

Sports titles are something I have always ...not crossed path until very recently (I mean like 4 years ago but that still counts as recent, can it? xD). I guess the first "sport" series I read was Hikaru no go, because a close friend was the biggest fan for that series. I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would, but I actually picked up Go and enjoyed it as a game hahah. I think for me now - I like the thrill and excitement of a sport show, sometimes I'm a bit bothered by the pace or the over-dramatic factor of it... but overall, I still quite enjoy it. The biggest "negative" factor for me though - is the fanbase... although this really doesn't have to do with the titles themselves.

About your awesome details list xD.... I actually bought Another last Thanksgiving, but never really touched it for some reasons lol... maybe I wasn't ready for all the gore and angst hahah
I did watch Hellsing a few years ago.... it was a "neutral" experience for me to be honest. Maybe it's because I really cannot handle gory stuff, so I didn't really feel the excitement of the fandom. Of course there are other factors in the show, but I guess being intolerant of the gore kinda takes out a huge portion of enjoyment from this series for me. I like Alucard though... not as a character but as a vampire, if that makes sense hahah. And I don't know if you're aware... but it seems the author and same production house released a new series recently called "Drifters." I didn't have much expectation for it, but surprisingly, I'm kind of enjoying it more than Hellsing. Although I do find the inconsistency and "forced" humors of it to be a bit problematic...

Baccano and Monsters have been on my forever list for the longest definition of time I could think of x"D I watched a bit of Monsters, then I felt like I wasn't ready to have my mind wrecked lol ... you know... like the mood the "phase" you mentioned. But yeah, I would really love to finish this series over the holidays.

Did you watch Durarara season 2? I heard they have the Shou and Shou x2 or something like that. I watched the first season (Shou is what it's called I think), but didn't like it as much as I like the first season. But then again.... I didn't like Durarara the first time I watched it either lol

And thanks again ^ ^

well hello there ~ xD ~ guess it's been the longest time... or not? I hope life has been treating you kindly ^ ^

I recently have some more time than I thought lol, so I decided to marathon some series... but somehow I can't seem to get into the more recent ones (as in the recently released series like Bungouku stray dogs, if that's how it's spelled), is there anything catching your eyes? I'm okay with most but not typically a romance fan, though if it's really very good, I will pick up :)

On that topic I just realized I never asked what you liked hahah I saw your favorite list but I'm unfamiliar with half of them and they also seem to vary in genres too, so is there anything you tend to stick with more than any others?

>feminine gays aren't the only depiction of gays in Japanese products.

I'd love to see an example if you have one. I can't find what I was reading because it was a few years ago, but it said all men in japan are considered gay or in their term are referred to as 'sister'. Another excerpt from a page in a book I just found said it's only for men who wish to play a feminine role so maybe it changed. Hard for either of us to truly know for sure unless we lived in Japan.

>Now, you have to keep in mind that most of these are created by females for females

Was No.6? I didn't even look up to see if it was meant for the Josei audience.

>Lastly, I would point out that having love as a theme or a relationship involved doesn't push an anime in the romance genre

That wasn't my point. From what I've been able to find, most of the anime that has ai is based completely around a relationship and that's all the anime is about just like a western romance drama movie.

Lastly, I was kind of already tempted to leave out the last part of the review because sexuality wasn't something I wanted to base my review on, it was just meant to be a side note, something hanging in the back of my mind. I don't think any anime should revolve around sexuality which is why I said I just wish there was an anime that had a gay main, but their relationship wasn't important, it's just something that's there. No.6 highlighted sexuality a lot and made it an important part of it which I wasn't overly fond of. But I mean hell, for all I know there is an anime that's like that I know I've only scratched a tiny fraction of all the anime out there. At the same time I'm very picky about what I watch too. No.6 was a random shot in the dark for me because I saw it in the recommended tab on Wolf's Rain

Oh can Congratulation, you successfully made me a Within Temptation fan xd.
KlapKlap Mar 12, 2016 7:35 AM
Not certain where, perhaps Chatango or something.. I believe i made accounts all over the place in 2010 for whatever reason my 15 year old brain decided to do.. I don't think i will find anything but embarrassing stuff from my early teenage years online so i will leave it at that :P

Admittingly a had enough curious to find This AMV so perhaps your name is hard nostalgia because of all the AMV's with your name or something. ^^ I watched/downloaded lot back then.

Well Higurashi was awesome back when i first started :D
KlapKlap Mar 12, 2016 6:02 AM
Your favorite is full of Nostalgia (╥﹏╥)

I seriously need to re-watch Angel beats, Death note, Higurashi and Jigoku Shoujo..

I don't know where, but i feel like i met you on another anime site in 2010 when i first started anime. You gives of some good feeling. Wherever we met, thank you for everything Onee-sama xD.

hahah I'm sorry it seemed like I made it sound a bit negative. I meant to say you have to compromise, but it's not that bad though... it's good to have some drive in life and expectation of you ...maybe ^ ^"
And sorry again this response seems like ages ago...... I hope your brother situation has gotten better!
