i know what you mean by saying anime is a passive hobby, it's just watching animation while drinking water or eating some snack in the meantime lol. but when you watch something that glued your eyes to the screen for 24 minutes (or hours if it's a movie, then you know that is something special for you hahaha) jrpg game types, i used to play this alot more with my ps2 back when i was younger. (11-12 years from now i think, i was 10 years old back then) now i just watch people play games on youtube since my laptop like i said, is a potato that can't run any games since it's overheat too much if i open a heavy app. (it's an old laptop i brought it in 2012 lol so understandable for it to act like it is currently) steins gate is great! i rewatched it last year and i enjoyed it alot more than the first time i watched it back in 2014. haven't touched a visual novel since 2017, but i enjoyed my time reading visual novel stuff. (i only ever read two vns to be fair, fate stay night and tsukihime)

monogatari is great too, so i'm sure you are going to have a fantastic time rewatching that. initial d i haven't actually watched this one yet, even though i listen to the meme de ja vu song alot of times haha. (i will watch this one when i'm in the mood for a racing related anime)

nice to read that you haven't been affected that much compared to me. i actually lost my job last year back in may because covid infested the area that my workplace was located at. (the boss can't afford to pay me monthly so he sacked me, and i checked the place i worked at last month and it has been closed down) it wasn't a fantastic job, i was only a storage cleaner but the pay was decent. nowadays i'm searching for another job like that, i have no higher ambitions lol. (i bombed out my test back in high school and never went to any college or university so i have no credentials for anything higher or a better paying job)

i hope your country (czech republic) won't turn out like mine (malaysia) did dan, our situation is a mess lol. from heavy fines to people not following the standard operating procedure and politics members from the government branch using the virus as a weapon to stay in power. only rich people benefit from this situation, a sad state of affairs. india's situation is even worse, with the lack of oxygen ventilators.

anidb is a very detailed anime site, you can see the effort that the creator put on it. having a tons of favourite option in it is fantastic too, you can easily make a nice list without worrying about space worries like in myanimelist with 10 or 20 if you have the supporter membership. but like you also wrote, mal is more user friendly hence why it has a larger community. (and alot more trolls lol)

people like akai and you dan motivated me to watch older shows back in 2015, i wouldn't have watched ashita no joe for example if i wasn't influenced by you two hahaha. my rating system has changed alot from 2014 to now, back then i used to give more variety in my ratings (i have almost 200 1/10s back then lol) now i just give everything a 10/10 because at the end of the day, anime is probably one of the few thing that is entertaining for me to watch. (and eating food + watching youtube of course lol)

yea dan the flood was bad, but the aftermath/cleaning part was even worse. (the part of ridding the dirty water that enters your house and cleaning the tiles haha it was a hard work that was only got done after my mom returned home to help out)
NoobYoi May 12, 5:30 PM
i see, you have been spending more time playing games than watching anime nowadays. (i can't blame you, playing games was much more fun for me too but i stopped playing games since my laptop is a potato lol) with you having almost 4k completed anime, there isn't much that you haven't seen but i bet there is still a gem hidden for you somewhere. (no need to go look for one though, you can just click on the highest rated shows instead and try to see if you can find one that you haven't seen yet) rewatching old favs is good too, i'm also planning to rewatch some old series soon.

working must be rough, with the pandemic going around. my country actually just went into another lockdown, thanks to people not wearing masks and sanitizing themselves. (also thanks to the government for bringing people that has travelled from india and africa back into our country lol the mutant version of covid are terrible)

anidb is so good from what i remembered, there is alot more character details in that site than myanimelist. i can check when a character appears in a series, without asking it on a forum. it's good to see you getting in touch back with old friends, earlier this year i also got in touch with akai. (he's still watching anime too at a regular basis, which is cool even though he's the same like you as in being busy with both gaming and work haha)

sorry for the late reply, my place got flooded and the internet stone infront of my home was shut down for 4 days lol what a mess.

In the word of Satoru Iwata(RIP): “Above all, video games are meant to just be one thing: Fun for everyone.” Hobby are supposed to be fun, not competitive competition.

With anime becoming more mainstream, some are distancing themselve from shows they like(Ex: SAO, AoT, etc).
That meme is one of my favorite xD

Ah, I see. I rarely branch out to other platform. I created a account for AniList., but, I rarely use it <_>
In a nutshell, I like to stick to one thing.
ApacheSnow69 May 8, 1:08 AM
I noticed long-time user on this platform, tend to give out generous score to modern shows. You guy are more laid-back and chill.
Now, anime fans are just flexing off their own ego toward other(*a echo-chamber*).

> I prefer mature anime with a good characters and storytelling but that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate some good comedy or even ecchi show if it is enjoyable.

This what missing in the anime community โ˜. Anime fans are normalized to bash anything related to ecchi and harem. Anituber are quite influential.

For SAO, this shows wasn't bad at all. My 1st watchthrough for this shows didn't ruined my perspective toward anime. Anime fans quickly labeled this shows as "hur dur, thIS sHowS iS tarNisHing ThE wHoLe mediUM".
I'm glad that you enjoyed SAO for what it is.

Since you asked what MAL norm is, here a funny meme xD


Bingo game for those type of weebs lmao


From what I heard, the manga adaptation for Eva is 10x better than the anime version.


How often do you interact with your mutuals ? Your friend, @NoobYoi, mentioned 2016 in your Comments Section(*I wasn't snooping around btw lol*). Also, it nice that you accept friend requests ^^
LunarStarGirl345 May 8, 12:34 AM
Hello :3.
And no problem. ^^
Yeah, same here. It really is a great and an amazing series, tbh. Studio Wit did a really good job with it and I’m glad to see it getting more love and attention from the people that follow and read the manga. ๐Ÿ˜
ApacheSnow69 May 7, 8:45 PM
I'm honestly shocked that you you didn't give SAO lower score. You give off that "elitist" vibe due to your faves xD
Also, what your thought on the SAO Light Novel ?

Very rare to see your type of user on this platform. Going against the stereotypical norm(For example: MAL elitist mindset: "retro > modern").
However, you did give Eva a 4

I know this a stupid question, but, do you accept Friend request ?
Some occasion, MAL user have strict rule on who they accept to their friends list(critique & requirement to be accepted).

*Sorry for my poor English*
NoobYoi May 6, 5:19 PM
dan, it's been nearly 5 since i last commented on your profile hahaha (july 9 2016 judging from the conversation option lol). damn it's been too long man, i'm happy to see that you are also still watching anime despite having over 3k+ on your list. i hope you still found something great to watch (or you might rewatch old favs if you can't find something new to watch), seasonal shows are pretty good. (i'm not a seasonal watcher but it seems like most recent shows do have a high rating here, there is still the odd one or two like ex-arm being ridiculously low rated here haha people hated that show)

that anidb favourite design on your about me is nostalgic for me, i haven't used that site since 2019.

i tip my hat to you sir,you have accomplished something iv'e endeavored to do congrats,may we never stop watching anime.
Akai_Shuichi Aug 30, 2016 7:52 AM
That's a shame. I can't say I'm having or even had health problems. It was a simple surgery meant to correct myopia and astigmatism so that I could stop using glasses. First day was a problem (couldn't really open my eyes and my eyes were constantly crying while I had to be in a dark room), but that was just about half a day, and since then it's quickly become better and better, and right now I'm really glad I don't need glasses anymore... I couldn't even read subs on tv before (and I had a lot of trouble reading them on the computer). Hopefully you're better from your health issues. Luckily, I'm kinda immune to stress, I remember I once did a stress test and the doctor was kinda "damn, stress yourself a little bit, you're way too relaxed!".

Well, they had to have at least SOME decent filler after all that worthless crap. I won't say it's a fantastic filler, but it's a filler that doesn't feel that much like filler (even if it slows down the fight with Kaguya). If I remember correctly, you were going through some really annoying filler right now... I can understand wanting to stall it indefinitely, but if you're almost through that (I don't remember where exactly you're at), I'd recommend against it... I mean, if you went through the worst part already, might as well keep on going.
Can't blame you about thinking the manga ended ages ago... but sadly that wasn't the case. They've been going with an arc where Quincys are the bad guys. They act like Nazi, actually kill a couple of characters (which is pretty ironic, considering they're shinigami and should be dead already), and becomes pretty ridiculous overall. I still need to finish reading that, but I think I'll read that soon... maybe this weekend.
Like I said, I probably agree with Fujitora being the best, I just think he's kinda... like a new generation. So until I talked to you, I never even thought about him when thinking about the admirals, in my mind I always compared the original 3 (where I definitely preferred Aokiji).

Point taken, it might not even be a fair love for the character, but at least that's what they "vote" for (let's say it's like people voting in politics just to follow a trend, without having any idea what they're really voting for... or even worst, knowing is bad, but preferring to follow the trend), and the character wins popularity, to the point it has a big group of followers. And considering how the head works, I'm sure they end up convinced about the idea (at least some of them).

I think I read somewhere that both the manga and the anime were pretty well received (and I don't think you get 99 episodes being just regular). The anime was pretty well done, and from what I understand it was really faithful to the manga, so I haven't lost hope there yet.
About Yowamushi, it seems pretty clear from your comments that I won't be watching that anytime soon. I don't think I even need it for any challenge right now (sports maybe, but considering it's the "others" category, I can probably fill that with other things... I don't have nearly as much watched as you). Shame on that. Like I said, going with such a sport was actually interesting.
I've been dreaming about that Major 2nd adaption since the day I watched Message. I would be glad watching Major at least until the day Goro days as an old man sorrounded by his kids, grandchildren and whatever. I ended up caring about Goro, so I'd love to watch an anime about his kids (and Satoru's, it seems).

Nah, Diamond no Ace is "okayish" at best. I mean, really nice animation as you can expect in a collaboration work by Productions I.G. and Madhouse and the games are not bad at all, but the characters, while they're not necessarily annoying (no cowards or depressive guys), they're not memorable at all. There personalities feel... almost fake, and while in terms of game they're developing a lot (becoming better players), I see very little character development. I initially saw some comparisons with Major, and I can say those are laughable. It's a shounen without much personality... but all of that said, it's not boring... just "okay"... which makes 75+51 episodes a bit too much.

To be honest, Gintama was barely an 8 (I gave it a 7.5 in my MAL tags, and 7.4 would be a 7), but in the end I opted for going with the 8 because the 201 episodes didn't feel like a burden I had to finish or something like that, had some really good moments of comedy, the serious arcs were actually really good shounens and most of all, Gintoki ended up being an even better character I initially thought. Really loved him as a character. He had a great combination of goofiness and seriousness... and while "goofy", he's not stupid at all... I never felt he was retarded or something like that, which I actually appreciated a lot, and even if he's a bit of a kid in the inside, you do feel he's an adult, especially from his relationship with Kagura and Shinpachi. And well, I do think almost the whole cast was likeable, which was no easy feat (pretty big cast of course), so I ended up remembering more the good stuff than the bad stuff. Bad stuff would be the fact that it certainly starts slow (not easy to get hooked into it) and it can be inconsistent. It's not even close to being as good as the MAL ranking suggest, but I honestly felt it was fun. While it's not saying that much, it was better than what I expected. Season 2 (which I'm almost done with) is probably a bit worse for me, though it does have a fantastic arc (which amounts for something like 6 episodes). Will probably be a high 7.

Can't say I liked Chi's Sweet Home... at all. I mean, I guess it did what it tried to do, which is pretty much showing a cute cat doing cute cat things... but I don't really like that. I don't like anime that's just about being cute and I didn't feel Chi's Sweet Home had any other message behind... And I don't even really like that kind of cute. At the very least, it was really, really helpful for the Anime Watching Challenge Club, and with 3 minutes per episodes, it was quick and easy to watch.
I think I did like Trinity Blood... though being neutral to it would be a better statement. I didn't really "liked it" very much, but I didn't "dislike it" either. I did like Abel as a character, but it's not like he's gonna be a memorable character or something like that, and I did like the concept, OST and animation. Sadly, like I said before, the story was complete mess and it ended in pretty much nothing.

Can't say I'm completely surprised. For starters, I think you do enjoy that kind of anime more than me, and I didn't really like Erika either (even if Kyouya was even worse)... I'd much rather have an unusual route where she ends up ditching Kyouya... I probably didn't like Erika probably because of the development of her relationship and feelings more than anything else. As an original concept, I did like the character... which almost ended up playing against the series in the long haul.

Haven't watched Yamada-kun, but I did have a couple of friends who did and ended up enjoying it. At the time I remember I didn't watch it because I thought it was going to be bad, but I was told it was actually fairly good. Maybe one day I end up watching it.

I think I said this before... but I think I'm not brave enough to try the Scum Challenge, I fill it if I happen to watch something for one reason or another, but I don't think I'll ever dedicate myself to it. A bit too much for me.

I think I'll just watch that the day I actually watch the movie. Hopefully we get another good movie. Being One Piece, I do have some expectations.

I did watch Saenai Heroine no Sodattekata, and my opinion is pretty much the same. It was nice, some funny moments, but nothing great. I thought the Sorairo Days (TTGL) at the end was a nice detail.

I didn't watch Shinmai Maou no Testament, but a friend did show me some of the most borderline hentai scenes. His opinion was actually similar to yours... not the kind of things I'd choose to watch... and I don't think I need it for any challenge, so I'll probably just ignore it. Not missing anything really.

While it's been a while since I last wrote you, I actually haven't watch anything new I think... I finished Trinity Blood and Gintama (and almost done with Gintama') while also beginning Diamond no Ace, but I haven't watched any short series recently... Oh wait, I did watch Tenkuu no Shiro Laputa, which I didn't really enjoy and the rest would be those horrible shorts by Keiichi Tanaami and a couple by Kouji Morimoto. Also, stars are alligning for me to watch Tales of Melodies, which I know you love, and I am wary because I didn't really enjoy Memories... but there's a couple of challenges asking me to watch it and it's not long, so I might end up watching it... not sure when though. After finishing Gintama I'll be so close to finishing the Top 100 Challenge that I might just go all-in for it (big reason I'm actually watching Diamond no Ace, which is the biggest remaining stone besides Gintama... right now the single biggest, as I only have about 75 Gintama episodes remaining). Even with 9 points, in terms of points, the Top 100 is strategically horrible if you're aiming for points (even if it's 9 points, it much easier to win 9 points aiming for other easier challenges), it would be a nice badge to have.
riho88riho Aug 25, 2016 8:01 AM
Congratz on achieving 150+ points!
Anime Watching Challenges Club

Job well done! o.o I'ma have to keep coming up with new ideas for higher points if ya keep up this pace hahaha <3
Akai_Shuichi Aug 19, 2016 7:28 PM
Took me some time to reply this time. I went through surgery in the eyes (nothing big, just laser surgery so that I don't need to use glasses anymore) and I couldn't use a pc screen for a while, and reading a big text like this one was particularly difficult.

I also recently updated myself with One Piece, though I'm still a bit behind in the manga, and I also caught up with Naruto and Dragon Ball Super (just before my surgery). Naruto is still filled with filler, but I do admit the recent filler is actually pretty decent. They're actually giving a bit more depth to the older history of Naruto (Kaguya and the Sage of the Six Paths) which I actually felt the manga lacked. It's a filler that doesn't really feel like one because it adds depth to the story. Speaking about Bleach, seems the manga is already over. I'm somehow still following so hopefully I'll put an end to it soon (because of my eyes is kinda bothersome to read it right now).
It's hard to like Akainu, and I do admit Fujitora might also be my favorite admiral, though I kinda consider him a case apart. Akainu is no longer just an admiral, but when I talk about admirals, I can't help but think about Akainu, Aokiji and Kizaru... and among those my favorite is Aokiji.

Well, Shinji also has a lot of favorites, doesn't he? (ok, I'm actually insulting Griffith here). I think Griffith earns his favorites on a different way. He's meant to be hated, but he has a lot of development through the Golden Age, which makes him popular on a different way than Guts. Again, charisma is just one factor. I named Shinji because I don't think even the people who consider him a good character would call him a charismatic character, they'd argue he's one of their favorites because of development (even if I think he doesn't really develop... at all).

I guess your last paragraph is what matters the most here. It doesn't really matter. Both of them are great, there's no real need to name one better than the other. Enjoying both is free. In the end, I'll also probably have Planete a bit higher on my ranking, but just a bit, though it's mainly because, as I feared, Uchuu Kyoudai ended in... basically nothing. I'd love to see a second season there. Hopefully it happens one day.

I'm still slowly working on that collection. I've mostly seen the shorter stuff for now and I can say they're not really good, but yeah, they're not terrible, not even close to other directors.

It's a shame about Yowamushi Pedal. I won't say I was extremely interested, but at least I was curious about it. At the very least, I don't think I'll watch it anytime soon, maybe unless some challenge really forced me to (and I don't see that happening anytime soon).

I only know the obvious about Diamond no Ace: It's about baseball and it's pretty popular, but after reading the synopsis and a couple of reviews, I can't say I'm really looking forward to it... I'm afraid I might not like it that much... and my baseball anime bar is sky high considering I've watched the whole Major franchise and Cross Game this year.
The one and only reason I haven't watched Nana yet is because I'm perfectly aware it doesn't finish and even the manga was left unfinished (I believe the author now dedicates to fashion, which in Japan was a huge selling point for her manga).

What else... I'm picking up the pace with Gintama... which will most likely be something between a high 7 or low 8 (if there were no episodes left right now, I'd give it a high 7), watched Chi's Sweet Home because of various challenges but it's definitely not my kind of thing at all, I watched Hidamari Sketch which was above average for a cute girls doing cute things anime, though that's not saying much from me, watched Antique, which was bad, but I thoight it'd be worse, currently watching Trinity Blood which looks great, I like Abel as a character, but the story is quite a mess... and that'd be a summary of my last couple of days. While I couldn't use a computer, the TV hasn't been a problem, and because I haven't been working, I've actually had a very decent amount of time to watch anime this week.

I once considered the scum challenge, but I think I'll pass from thaat one. I'm not brave enough for that. I suffered enough with some creators, but at least those are 5 minutes long shorts... horrible movies -Super Kid was it?- is a bit too much for me. I need to keep whatever sanity I have left.

As always, I'm not sure what my future plans with anime are... I'll probably decide what to watch next moments after finishing something.
Akai_Shuichi Aug 9, 2016 9:32 AM
No problem at all, as you probably already know. And you just happened to write when I had some time to write back.

Not sure if my opinion on Foxy would change with a rewatch, but yeah, Nebulandia was mediocre as a whole, Foxy is not the only one to blame there.
I still need to update myself with One Piece and pretty much everything I'm following. Between challenges and things I actually want to watch, I've pretty much forgotten about One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball Super and a couple other stuff. Not really looking forward to updating with them, but maybe I will after I'm done with Uchuu Kyoudai.
Norowareta Seiken was really good also... Zoro is fantastic, so having a movie dedicated to him was bound to be good. My favorite is still Dead End no Bouken because, as I told you before, is just great for the adventure feeling which is something so characteristic in One Piece, but Norowareta Seiken was really good. Also, the last movie was really good also (ok, technically second-to-last). I think it's the first time they actually showed how much damage Aokiji sustained in his battle with Akainu, and was pretty cool to see him there and having an ex-admiral as an enemy.

Of course, I do think about the whole package also. There's nothing better than a character that has both things (Reinhard and Yang, for example), but I do tend to think about it a little bit. Griffith is actually a prime example of a character with, ironically, little charisma but great development. Of course, he has all the charisma in the world in terms of the story, but he's a character that's pretty much meant to be hated by the audience, hence, he has little to no charisma in the terms I'm speaking of.

I'll get to Uchuu Kyoudai on more detail when I finish, but I can say I'm absolutely loving it. For me it's actually a hard choice between Uchuu Kyoudai and Planetes, and I definitely love Planetes. And all of that said, they actually have a different feel. Though, while you did tell me it was a nice series to watch weekly, in this later episodes I have to wonder about that. I understand the series was about to catch-up with the manga at the time, so they shortened the episodes quite a bit by adding a small recap every episode and that annoying Hibito rabbit at the end. I don't care much about that because I'm not waiting a week per episode, but I think those things would've been a problem for me had I watched it weekly.

Like I told you, yeah, it doesn't really fit at all. That's an opening that would be great for almost the complete opposite, for a relaxing slice of life, for a thought provoking series... most definitely not something like JoJo.

I've only watched the first one, though I did download the second one. I watched it as I was finishing the OVA-per-Day challenge, and since then I haven't really watched any OVA. I kinda haven't found a chance to watch the sequel, but I eventually will. I probably won't take another OVA difficulty precisely because I don't even know what to watch. I might take another movie difficulty because there's a lot to watch there, but I don't think I'll pick up OVAs or Specials again.

I've barely done anything on the Creator Challenges. I do have a couple that are close to finished (which includes Rapparu and Urobuchi Gen) and I finished Taku Furukawa and Tadanari Okamoto, but I'm still missing a lot. I actually recently watched a couple of shorts of Kouji Morimoto. Most of those are relatively easy to finish (the challenge is usually surviving because of how bad they are, but in terms of length it's quick).

Ah, Sakura Trick, I was really surprised when I saw it. Still love it. I haven't seen anything new I think since we last talk, just some progress with Gintama and Uchuu Kyoudai. I was skiing this weekend so I barely watched anime last week.
It's a shame Yowamushi Pedal is not good so far, even for a sports anime fan like you. Because it was an unusual sports for an anime I was kinda looking forward to it. Haikyuu was also a bit of a disappointment, so I'm kinda having second thoughts with Diamond no Ace, which was a plan of mine as I want to finish the Top 100 Challenge, and Diamond no Ace will be my biggest remaining challenge after I'm done with Gintama (I think the only things I've got left are Gintama things, JoJo Diamond, Nana, Shouwa Genroku, Diamond no Ace S2 and half of Nichijou).
I didn't really like Ookami Shoujo at all, to be honest. Both main characters annoyed me, and while it does happen a lot in shoujos, I think the way the relationship worked was almost insulting to women. Kaichou wa Maid-sama had a bit of that also, for example, but I thought characters in Kaichou wa Maid-sama were far more likeable and it wasn't as extreme as in Ookami Shoujo. I haven't watched Ao Haru Ride, but I did watch Sukitte Ii na Yo and I thought it was a really nice simple romance. I liked the characters and their relationship was nice. I also liked the opening or ending (I don't remember which it was) quite a lot, as it is a theme from a deceased composer and singer I liked.
