i just read your review on "Grave of the Fireflies"...
I wont say much but only this:
It was Accurate AF... I can't agree with your statements anymore.. LOL
Seita was a bloody useless piece of crap who instead of doing something to save his and her sister's life, he went on playing together and stealing stuff...
there was no event in the whole movie where he ask someone to give him some work so he can get some food as a return but no... he was determined to starve and make her sister starve too..
the alternate ending could have been that when the farmer takes him to the police station, the police guy put him into jail forever and they both die afterwards... that could have been better to accept this bull shit that way

sorry i said so much xD

“Except they don't really struggle. Not at first, anyways”
I know right development is gross.

“However, Seita, despite supposedly caring for his sister, can't take this horrible verbal insult to his pride”
Well done you’ve discovered the overarching theme: Japanese pride.

“Thus, Seita is a completely callous, idiotic monster, responsible not only for his own death, but the death of his sister as well.”
Yes, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki happened because japan was a “completely callous, idiotic monster”. We link this back to pride.

“That's my first problem with "Grave of the Fireflies" That the main character is responsible for the entire tragedy that ensues. “
Wow, who would of thought something a main character does in a movie is focused on.
Hello my name is Mike and I dropped out of highschool in year 8 and my favourite hobby is watching paint dry! ­čśŐ

“You're telling me that when Seita sees his dead mother, her skin burned off her very flesh, he doesn't cry?”
Wow it’s almost like shock after receiving horrible news is incomprehensible. Lol I studied psyschology in university so trust me, he definitely should have been crying.

“The aunt's own temperament is equally contrived. You're telling me that she shows no emotion upon hearing that her own sister has died?”
Again guys I studied psychology, with the threat of getting bombed any day and the shortage of food, she should have been nice to her niece and nephew. Also because in real life families are always nice to each other trust me I’ve seen the Fast & furious series.

“She's clearly no monster, and treats her nephews quite well, so why the utter lack of emotion?”
I know right. Even in Harry Potter his uncle (for some reason) treats him like shit like he’s some unnecessary bother or something. However, with my clever deduction, I was able to deduce that he treats his son fantastically. BIG inconsistences, someone tweet JK Rowling that she’s a stupid skank please.

“Yet, the anime has an even greater flaw; it fails to make a statement. There is no point to the story.”
When you think about it man, what’s the point of anything

“What's the director's message about life and the human condition? There is none.”
Okay you just spent the first half of the review talking about pride and the consequences of it and I’m now 99% sure this review is a meme.


“Hell, I didn't even feel any particular pity for the two fictional characters. The director even failed to do that”
Hey guys I’m so manly. I’m incapable of feeling because I’m C R A Z Y. DO NOT MESS WITH ME, MY MUM TRIED TO ONCE AND LETS JUST SAY SHE WON’T BE DOING IT AGaiN

I understand you’re trying to be edgy and different, but your comprehension abilities are honestly worse than a 13 year old’s. I get that this review was posted in 2008 and sure your current reviews might have a tad more merit, but I’m honestly disgusted by your inability to comprehend (or willingness to). Whether consciously or not, you made a decision before you watched this movie that you weren’t going to like it; just because something is popular doesn’t mean you have to fight it. The only reason your review is the top of myanimelist for the movie is because you’re the cancer of the anime world; you ride the wave of pathetic hipsters that are self-diagnosed with depression and get hard-ons from the very thought of going against popular opinion.

Kill yourself.

Sincerely,
Coolguyandhotguy.

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?
Tehqo Feb 21, 3:18 PM
very nice reviews friend.
diima Feb 6, 9:29 AM
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.
Karma-Senpai Nov 15, 2016 1:50 PM
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.
Rievlyne Oct 23, 2016 3:43 AM
Are you from Brazil ?..... OK. let's to the point. Are you that UFC fighter ?
TheKillerAngel Oct 22, 2016 2:41 PM
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?
