I learned the hard way over the years you can never change someone's opinion. You can however learn to understand that nothing is perfect, everything is flawed and internet arguments are dick measuring comments. Like with taste changing as you get older and perhaps gradually realising you dislike what you once liked, it gets to a point where it's wiser to concede what you see as flaws, someone else might see as positives.

Tltr: I'm too lazy to argue. Most people link how they feel about something to define them, and get defensive. And tbf, on an anime website it's mostly teens.

In the case of Maison Ikkoku, I've always felt it's something that'd piss you off or make you care, for much the same reason, so your review was especially intriguing given we both cite the same character flaws. Takahashi is good at investing real female traits into her heroines: namely, hypocrisy and jealous bitchiness. Would a real woman pick Godai over Mitaka without hesitation or be indecisive; I find human failings like that in characters interesting. Others might get angry that characters are acting in unlikable ways. I certainly got angry at the MI characters. It all depends on what you want and expect.

Anyways, that's enough faux-philosophy on anime/manga ratings. I enjoy reading your reviews as they get to the point and have enough emotion to be entertained. Your Scummy Wishes review was interesting to me, kinda like your MI one: you ended saying 1/10 enjoyment because there was no attempt at making anyone happy; indulging itself in unhappiness. I was drawn to it because it lived up to its name. The sociopath teacher getting married/saved by nice gai was bullshit, tho.

I don't use MAL much anymore, so I probably won't respond if you do. Twas nice encountered someone that can discuss things.

Your Maison Ikkoku review reminded me of how I felt typing about it; the anger and frustration. I could've rated it low or high, yet I went high because of how passionately I typed about it. Despite wanting to twat both Godai and Kyoko. Our reviews are two sides of the same coin.

Anyway, it was a fun read. There's a quote from near the end of the series; something like "she burns with jealousy, yet when she smiles, the world is mine". It's that emotional flip-flopping that made the series, and Takahashi's accurate portrayal of an indecisive woman, so entertaining and infuriating. Love and hate are always closer than you'd like to think.

good/very good reviews and good taste makes no sense LOL

No problem, also my theory is that its not necessarily time travel, but memory travel, the grisha in that current memory only senses Eren is there, but the outcomes barely change due to his presence if at all.

Hey, don't bother with the AOT Manga fans, they are the biggest fanboys who defend their show to the death. Which is a natural reaction to do for a series they like, but they handle it in such a immature way it makes me ashamed to be apart ot the AOT community. However, I do think the whole "they dont know good writing part because they probably haven't read books" was a bit uneccessary, there was no need to go that far to get your point across, but that's just me. I personally, while am a huge fan of the anime and manga, owning all the recent volumes and anime blu rays, am getting a bit worried about Eren as a character. I loved his timeskip self but the moment he instantly convinced a goddess to his side because plot wills it lowkey leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Im just sticking through to see the rumbling cause I've been waiting for that shit for years.
Play2X Jul 31, 2019 9:45 AM
Hey there, like we both agreed on, our discussion isn't really part of that forums original idea, so I thought I write this here instead.

In terms of insults, I actually read through our whole discussion again, and I didn't find a single insult on my part. The one thing which came the closest to an insult would be me laughing at the youtube and steam examples, which, while not an insult, might come across as insulting, for which I'm sorry.
However, I disagree that I started. You called me ignorant, dismissed everything I said without giving it a second thought, implied that I'm an idiot. That list goes on. But don't worry, like I said, this isn't the first time I got insulted, and hell, it won't be the last time for sure. The next troll will arrive for sure and do that anyways ^^ I'm not that much of a snowflake, I merely would like to keep the argument insultfree, so that we both can rest assured that we have some level of maturity. It isn't that long ago that I DID insult more than I should in reviews, and afterwards I feel bad about it because it lets me look like a child who had to insult because his reasoning couldn't stand on its own.

Well then, back to those working systems. The site admins did describe why they changed the system. And at first I had the same stance at you, I think I told you that already. However, speaking of my personal experiences I don't really think that the active system right now is neutered. Well, not completely, I see the problems myself of course, however, I simply don't have a better idea to how to solve this dilemma myself. I think the system right now is better than the old one, but not perfect, not at all.
The YT one, well, like I said, the system there is flawed in itself, because the mayority of votes comes from an influenced mass of people. But quite honestly, I don't really care about the YT system at all. Usually I can tell from the channel, as well as the title of the video if it is something I want to watch. The like/dislike ratio is for me at least completely irrelevant on YT videos.
Steam: I leave it to you to inform yourself on this, but two companies you might've heard of in that regard are Bethesta (back at Fallout 76 times, when a HUGE chunk of downvotes suddenly vanished) and Creative Assembly (who did some pretty shitty things on Rome 2, which led to outrage in the reviews, which ALL got censored). So, no. This isn't a lie. This actually happened. I would be careful with companies, where money is involved. I would like humanity to be just and kind, but when money and companies are involved, you better prepare to see the ugly side of humanity...

Since you brought up good ol' Socrates before: 'The only thing that I know, is that I know nothing'. His quote went something like this, right? I've had enough of mathlessons even on higher level (during computer science lecture in university) that I don't see yet, how this should be possible. However, I know that humanity still has a lot of work ahead of themselves. The next relativity theory will surely arise, and at some point we might find groundbreaking new discoveries, that let us even question something universally accepted, such as 1+1=2. Is this likely? No. At least from our standpoint, it isn't. But assuming that everything we think to know is absolutely untouchable is the same ignorance people had regarding geocentric and heliocentric theories.

First, I merely don't want to call people out on the more official forums, in contrast to, say, the comment sections on our sites. I assumed you meant Karhu. I read his review, and actually remember having read one or two of his reviews before. His Dororo review for example, on which all three of us, scorewise, seem to agree somewhat. This is just me merely making sure that we both talk about the same person. But I argued not for him in particular, I wanted to make a point that there are simply a lot of people with differing opinions, and that it is kinda wrong to assume they are trolling, just because they have those differing opinions. Something which happens, as I hopefully stated, all too often.

I think you are trying to take the simple way out with that little grammer example. The problem I have with it is that it is simply mandatory to have correct spelling and grammer, in the same way I expect my anime to not have the mouth suddenly for a few frames fly off the face of a character. There was that one Imouto anime one or two seasons ago, where that happened. However, this does not impact writing in itself. Let me put it this way, Language is only something humanity developed as a means to transfer ideas. In that case writing gramatically sound and without spelling errors and the like only is necesary because if you miss those points you merely can't bring your story across.

"New terms, poor grammar and the like have always been used in literature. Interestingly enough, I mentioned 1984, which has that and Shakespeare who was famous for inventing new words and terms." Yes, I know. That is exactly the point I'm trying to make. By people using words in new ways, they redefine what people thought as right.

First of all, no, I am not plagiarizing him, I am indirectly quoting him, and pointing out what of his statements I find to be correct, and where I think he has some holes in his logic. Also, it appears you yourself did not fully comprehend what this author wrote. What you describe as good writing is something he explicitly stated as 'the craft of writing'. But yes, I agree that it gets a bit confusing with the craft of writing and good writing being, well, not different things, but the craft is a part of good writing, without being exactly the same. Also, like I already stated, I know that good writing can't be either and has to be both. If it can be either that would merely open up the possibility of arguing that a really badly written story still is 'well written' because you could just exclude the craft of writing from your priorities. Which would be pretty dumb.

Unfortunately, your examples all more or less proove my point. Is a bike better as a means of transportation? Yes, without question, but the unicycle has other qualities, which seperates it from the bicycle in which the unicycle excels. For example, being way cheaper because of less material. Or being a bigger asset at learning balancing. Or I dunno, I never rode a unicylce xD. I don't know if you did Karate or Jiu-Jitsu, but I don't think your fight ends that clear cut. First of all it would be fairly hard to find a fair ground as a basis to compare the two. If we talk about self-defense, I think you are right. However, a mixed MMA style fight encompasses more than just self-defense. Once again, both have different values which lets the excell over the other, while also having flaws.
Which once again gives credit to the point I made, that there are different styles of writing which all have their own values, but none are objectively better, because they have different uses.

No, it doesn't. The job of the chef isn't to make food which looks amazing, but to make food which the customers like. In that example he clearly failed at his job, therefore his product is useless, ergo bad.

I know a bit about publishers and publishing from the experiences of other authors, but had not yet the chance to deal with a publisher, or more exactly, an editor, myself. However, publishers do not care about quality (inderectly). It is their job to sell stuff. Which means they promote, they iron out things they might consider a problem in earning money. But they don't directly care for quality. The only reason they look at the quality of the writing is because it influences how good it sells. But they don't care for the story, nor do they care for the way you write as long as it is sellable. Also, about your author, I looked at his 'About' page yesterday, and I wouldn't take anything he says as gospel. This isn't to shit on him, I have never heard of him before though, but it never is a good sign if people go to independent releasing. This isn't unheard of, and there are of course good indy authors as well, but what wonders me is that he started with a two book deal in traditional, and afterwards switched to independent. This is just stating possibilities, but the main reasons why people choose indy over trad is higher risk/reward window, and no influence by editiors, who wouldn't greenlight your project if they don't believe in its success. Perhaps there are other reasons, but I unfortunately can't tell anymore from just his About and Book pages. A wikipedia sites is strangely missing as well, which would be the norm for bigger authors. But like I said, I haven't read his books, perhaps he is a good writer, perhaps he is not, but he contradicts more well known writers, such as Brandon Sanderson or Brandan Mull, so, well.

Do they? I don't think so. Both the Bach and the Shakespear examples show that things which used to be popular can fall out of grace, come back, or vanish forever depending on the way the tastes of people develop. If I remember, Shakespear wasn't met with only praise during his time, quite the contrary. But excuse me if I don't read up un Shakespear right now, this is just what I remember from my english lessons 10 years ago.

Well, too bad if you think that. Unfortunately I did have that in mind though. However, for my point, that there is no such thing as a completely objective good anime, or someone who decides what is, it is kinda important that I also point out that mayority or critics are just as fallible as the two of us are. If you don't want to believe me, okay. Thats your thing.

I don't intend to redcon anything, and also see no reason for it. Like I said, even experts like Hawking or Shakesper aren't perfect and make mistakes.
However, if I am completely honest, I chose the wrong word in expert, because my intent was more in line with critic. But well.

Like I said, we can continue spinning in circles, if you like. I told you that Pure objectivity can't be subjective, however, that what people call objective ratings aren't objective, because they are stained by the people who rate, and are therefore subjective. Even when people try to be as objective as they can, they are still impacted by Psychology. There are principles in place, such as mere exposure, or recency effects, to name just two, which skewer with our objectivity. Of course, things like experience, preference and similar things also do. I mean, we can continue to argue that, but well. By the way, Hi Pot, this is Kettle, how are you? :P

Didn't I already somewhere in ths post say that the perception of those changes? Sure, I love Bach and am interested in Shakespear, even though I didn't have the chance to read much of him. And, given you bring them up so often and how our tastes are surprisingly often similar, maybe you do, too. But we are unfortunately 2 out of what, 8 billion people? There are tons of people who find Shakespear grating, and to be fair, his writing doesn't mesh good with modern times. Same for those buildings, I like old buildings like the Elizabeth tower, the Parthenon or Dover Castle (the Eiffel Tower, not so much. Basically just a big chunk of steel). However, there are architecture professors (one of my friends studies architecture and told me about that), who dislike classical buildings, and are all about those modern shapes with lot of glass, which are just ugly af.
I agree, something being liked universally by everyone is an attempt of my part, to visualize what an objectively good thing is. But that is because I can't see something as objectively good or bad. Which nobody can. There just isn't a formula which outright prooves that something is objectively right.
Therefore I imagine the objectively best thing as something where everyone who sees is is just like 'Yes. This is it.'

I don't see why exactly I am dishonest. I merely point out my arguments, clarify them if needed or if you use them in ways I simply didn't use them. Quite the contrary, I am usually known to being honest to a fault. And yeah, I acutally get the feeling that you are a nice guy, and smart enough to not call yourself smarter than other people, which is usually the sign of smart, good-hearted people. However, I can tell you that I understand what you're saying for the simple reason that I used to share your ideology. In fact you are pretty much argumenting in the same way I did with my best friend two years ago. And I know from experience that I didn't believe him at first. Just like you do now. But reflecting on such discussions usually leads to a changed attitude.
Don't get me wrong, I am still arguing with you, but I am sure that over the next weeks or months I will have this discussion nagging at the back of my head, and I will reevaluate my opinion. This is by the way also a physiological principle. Nobody ever agrees they are wrong, they either shut up and think there is no point arguing, or start insulting each other, or whatever, but it takes a while to fully comprehent the outcome - for both sides.

But hey, at least you think I'm a nice person ^^ most people call me an total asshole usually xD
Well, feel free to discuss with me again if you want. Perhaps we'll meet again in some of the forums, until then!

your Kuzu no Honkai review is really spotted on, love it
wgbho23 Oct 11, 2018 12:01 AM
I'm just curious to hear, what are your favorite isekai manga/LN? (Could also just name fantasy in general.) What brought this on was seeing your review for Kenja no Mago and wondering what you'd think of TenseiSlime. As someone who recently caught up with TenseiSlime's manga, I absolutely love it, putting it as one of my favorite ongoing manga and isekai stories. I actually own Shield Hero and "So What Im a Spider" LN's and wondering what you think of those/if any of these isekai LN's have a good manga. (So far i've heard Tensei's manga is as good as its LN and I quite like it).
Instinto Aug 25, 2018 6:20 PM
I really liked your review on Kuzu no Honkai. When I started the manga, I liked the "premise" of loving someone that doesn't love you back, but at the end the character development and the story itself felt so childish and without sense.
LeonhartAugust Jul 22, 2018 10:14 AM
Until death do us part is a seinen because its published in a seinen magazine.
Shounen, shoujo, josei, and seinen are demgraphics, not genres.
BonerInc Mar 26, 2018 12:19 PM
I understand the point of OPM, it just got a bit old to me, so oh well.
Also I watched SAO as like my second anime which is perhaps why I liked it so much.
Thanks for the comment :)
Shiranuma Dec 5, 2017 11:10 PM
>what brought this on?

Shiranuma Dec 4, 2017 11:20 PM
