While Sangatsu no Lion does have some very Shogi-heavy parts that are probably incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't play the game, the show employs visual metaphors to communicate the player's states of mind and their strategic postures on the board. I thought it was a very solid show, among the best of the 2016-2017 offering. Some people may not like the shifts between comedy and drama, a bit similar to Your Lie in April. Quoting Veronin, who wrote a review of the show, "Sangatsu no Lion is at its surface an anime about shogi, but at its core a coming-of-age story of overcoming depression."

Yeah, the site has been having problems, our admin is currently going through a reboot process. If you just go to the default link it goes to an ad instead. For now, this link should work for you http://www.fanoff.com/shows/gen/

Claymation is fantastic, but come to think of it we haven't covered much on the podcast. The most recent claymation film (or at least claymation style) we did was Aardman's Pirates, but I have been meaning to cover Moral Orel, which is one of my all time favorite tv shows.

I've found myself getting more of an appreciation for older cinema over time, and less so for newer films. That's not to say all new cinema is bad. I recently watched Logan which was fantastic, and I was very happy to see that this year's Best Picture winner was quite prominently filmed in my hometown of Miami!

I've been alright I guess. Not doing too great economically, but I have my friends and that's enough to keep me happy.

I've actually got a regular podcast I'm doing on animation as a whole, we cover a different series/movie every week, not just anime. As a result I'm probably watching more anime now than I did in the past. As such I've found some real good stuff over time (Ergo Proxy, Mob Psycho 100, Hunter X Hunter, Baccano) as well as finding a new appreciation for older series and getting around to finishing shows I fell off on.

I've also become more of a cinephile over time. For instance, I recently discovered Tarkovsky's works and Stalker is now one of my favorite films.

It's alright. Why the long absence though? C'mon, you should visit more often. Or are you that busy with real life matters?

Good to hear you've been okay. Man, for me, I've been beasting mangas like pussy yo. I really can't say the same for anime. Are you current with games?
Raging_Berserker Mar 18, 4:56 AM
No problem man, how are you? Sure took your time replying though. Not regular on MAL, are we?

very nice reviews friend.

I really liked your review on school days, haha! you saved me time.
spiderjerusalem Jan 8, 4:42 PM
It's been a while, how have you been my friend? Anything catch your eye lately?
Raging_Berserker Nov 30, 2016 3:46 AM
Yo! You are a funny one my friend. A very funny one indeed. Just read your Street Fighter IV movie review haha. Your imagination sure runs wild.

Completely agree with your review on Grave of the Fireflies. It was a depressing movie but didn't really move me to tears mainly due to the fact that everything could've been avoided if Seita put aside his dumb pride.

Are you from Brazil ?..... OK. let's to the point. Are you that UFC fighter ?

Returning to an earlier discussion about chess and anime, do you think the anime adaptation of Sangatsu no Lion, which is about a professional Shogi player, meets the standard you have for an anime being about a board game?
Akagi Sep 27, 2016 10:40 PM
Okay, now there are translations of the Manga past the point that the Anime covers if you're interested.

I realize that this is 8 years later. Haha!

I see. There's one Ghibli movie that I heard is highly underappreciated by a friend that has similar tastes to me, I might eventually check that one out. It's Ponpoko. Anyway, I think I'm not gonna watch anything else, but just in case, if you happen to watch Porco Rosso and you have a positive opinion of it, if you happen to review it, I'd like to read it.

Excellent Grave of the Fireflies review. It reflected my feelings on the film perfectly.

I think there might be a mistake though in your review. I believe the person you're talking about in the end of the review is Nosaka Akiyuki, rather than Takahaka Isao.

Just wanted to point that out. Other than that, your Grave of the Fireflies review was spot-on and reflects the feelings of a large, but silent minority, or something like that.
