Reading your piece on Orguss 2 reminded me of my own first encounter with retro-mecha anime with a surprisingly insightful degree of clarity, as well as captured the charm of the original Orguss anime (haven't watched 02 myself). Kudos

My Constructive criticism for your reviews is that it is too technical and far too in depth for the average viewer. I think there really needs to be two main types of reviews on MAL one for the average anime watcher and one for veterans/ hardcore in depth analysis. It just might be me though.

Woah.

Your review of Noir really did justice to the series. I'm seriously considering writing a review for it but it won't be as good as yours.

Yeah, the characters in Pumpkin Scissors may seem one dimensional, but the context of it in a post-war bureaucratic world makes it pretty entertaining especially for newcomers. Live action TV does this all the time: take complex settings ( cops, law,doctors) and add easy to follow characters. Popular shows like Law and Order or House has some dark issues, but simplifies it and the good guys win. It's fantasy and naive to think homocide and rape cases would close in a week. You get the same effect watching Punpkin Scissors.

Of course by anime standards, I could see it being average. Then again, people who are raised by anime have a different viewpoint than those not raised by anime. But, your review and rating is still good. I rate things like 5 if they are worth mentioning ,but not something I really like. So, I'm glad you mentioned it.

Man, I don't mind if you didn't like Simoun, it's just a matter of taste (i.e. subjective experience, context and perception). But your bland comparison of Sahashi's musical score with Kajiura’s music is killed me in an instant. They are absolutely different and have less than 5% in common. First, Sahashi's orchestration style is much more pompous and loud. His OST for Full Metal Panic! and Gundam Seed often feature huge loads of fully fledged symphonic orchestra, accompanied by BAWLING brass section (they are not ‘electronic pipes’ in any way! -___- ). It's not so obvious for Simoun music, because of its expanded lyricism, but it's totally there. Furthermore, his writing technique is obviously different. His use of dynamic and register range, tempo change, harmony shifting and counterpoint within a single musical piece is usually way more complicated and kinda 'academical' (I mean, he has that conventional approach that you'd expect from a classically-trained musical composer) - just listen to the Konton, Kanashimi no Simoun Sibylla, Rekishi Ha Kataru tracks, you'll immediately understand. Kajiura's writing style is much more 'contemporary' and often more pop oriented (not always, of course, and I don't assume that 'going pop' is a bad thing). She heavily relies on vocal/choral arrangements, which is nowhere to be found in Sahashi's scores. Her use of electronics and modern instruments (electric guitar especially) is noticeably more deliberate, skilled and consistent, while for Sahashi it's just another way to add some sounds here and there. Also, Kajiura rarely works with real orchestra (big or small), and when she does, she almost never uses its extended capabilities and goes all for ‘strings + choir + electronics (normally it's electronic percussion)’ mixture as the main ingredient.


I can go on and on, but I should just stop, because, as you already may know, I can go on and on.

Hey dude, nice review on Only Yesterday, but I have one thing to tell you. That isn't Hungarian music. It's Bulgarian.

I was going to comment "Brilliant Bubblegum Crisis review" but I found those exact words posted already! Well, then, I concur: it's marvelous and an excellent example of a helpful review. Thank you! It's now on my Plan to Watch list.

I also found your profile About Me section really amusing, with much of what you said being strikingly similar to myself.

Anyway, thanks, and take care.

Six years later and I've just read your Cowboy Bebop film review. It's an excellent read, and I share your thoughts on practically everything. Hope ya stay internet-alive to continue writing reviews.

Brilliant BGC review.
Babby-Princess May 17, 2012 3:07 PM
Oh I've seen it already actually, I just haven't gotten around to adding most anime I've seen to my list yet. I just kind of casually update it with things I've been watching recently. I've been meaning to get around to watching Rebuild for forever too.

dude I loved your simoun review, A++

Ah, I think differently. What I mean is, it's so original that it becomes Marketable. And I don't mean Marketable in the sense of selling loads of dakimakura or figures. I mean as in selling the character's to the audience.

And yeah, the humour is all about taste. Which is why I get annoyed by people who go; "I didn't find this funny. It MUST be the worst Aime in history". I didn't much like Hayate no Gotoku nor Gintama but I respect the fact that a lot of people do find it funny; so I don't bash them. I haven't seen Hetalia yet but I would like to. The fanbase is kinda scary though so it's a bit of a turn-off.
