What are you up to these days? Haven't talked in a while. Wanted to know if there were any shows you were looking forward to this year or anything new you've gotten into.

@VampiricScollion Lain isn't subtle in terms of its visuals, no, but it still manages to be subtle in its conveyance of the plot and themes; there's a reason people are still arguing about the show to this day, and it's not simply because the show is trippy. I'd argue Haibane Renmei is even more subtle in that respect.

I admit I found the comp-sci infodump off-putting at first but all of that information ended up being necessary to get a better grasp of the story, Eiri's motivations, and so on.
VampiricScollion Aug 18, 8:06 PM
@Dendritik I concur that Lain and Haibane were about connecting the dots, but the amount of subtlety is very lackluster, especially in Lain. During some episodes, they give us a bunch of jargon about computer scientists and while I didn't mind it, it felt a lot like infodumping.
Dendritik Aug 17, 1:21 AM
@VampiricScollion Lain is *exactly* the show it's meant to be. The beauty of Lain and Haibane is that they present you with fascinating worlds but refuse to spoonfeed them to you. You have to piece certain things together on your own, which is a far more rewarding experience for series like Lain and Haibane; they can be interpreted in so many ways, which might seem daunting, but it's because they're so damn chock-full of meaning.

Also plz come back Zeph we miss you

@Pathanimran Idk, I watched Lain and it's not really the show it's meant to be. A lot of things are left unanswered with little to no reason as to why they happened. Haibane Renmei, while arguable as a 6, is better off as a 7 in my book. Texhnolyze, while also not my favorite, is the better of the two.

nigga gave shit like john wick a 7 on imdb, gave serial experiments Lain n haibane renmei a 6 wtf?

My dude, I have no idea if you are just taking some time away from this stuff because you want to to other stuff/have shit to do etc. or if you are actually going through something. But if it is the later... Well just want to make sure your ok, not that there is likely very much I could do if you weren't...

I just want to say I love your reviews.
A lot of them are huge contrasts of the more popular said reviews and it is really interesting to see something different. People Have been complaining that your reviews are too long and unnecessary but I beg to differ! I enjoy looking into your mind because in the end, I always
Please write more reviews on more animes!
AlexNecPo Aug 12, 3:37 PM
There are many kinds of reviews and reviewers out there. Some reviewers use a structure of describing the show meaninglessly and then talking about the pos and neg, some have their writing all over the place. Others use a quick set up before diving in. ZephSilver is definitely one of them. He writes reviews in a style.

But what if you don't like styled reviews? Then this is not the reviewer for you. His reviews are laced with jokes and constructive criticism.

His taste is mediocre at best and he should watch more anime before giving his opinion in my opinion, but that is irrelevant to the review. Like his taste ex dee.

Over all I think his reviews might be helpful if you know how to skeem through them. If you actually sit through reading all of them you might be wasting a bit of time on needless reiteration and jokes that sometimes are hilarious but usually miss the mark. 6/10
