ah, really glad to hear it ^_^. sorry if was a bit here-and-there.

and don't want to sound patronising or whatever, but
well, if you have any "questions", should totally ask. it's less a "being smart enough" and more a "has experienced certain non-typical things" is why

Why are you watching all these seasonal shows you don't like?
TheKillerAngel Jun 19, 11:22 AM
Texhnolyze was a struggle for me to watch. I can see why some people might like the slow, oppressively dark atmosphere but it I was expecting a deeper plot related to the transhumanist elements.
TheKillerAngel May 8, 7:19 PM
What do you think of Tsuki ga Kirei? I have't watched any of it.

Anything of interest you're reading at the moment? I'm not really reading much besides weekly shounen and monthly josei stuff, and I'm kinda in the mood to pick up something new. Alien 9 looks pretty interesting, I think I'll read it this weekend.

Oh hey, what's up?

I thought I was the only one thought that Your Name was overrated. It had some of the most gorgeous visuals I've seen in anime. The soundtract was nice even though I'm not really a fan of J-Pop (or Modern Pop). The directing was what propelled the film imo, it's indeed first class. The plot felt kind of weak and story wasn't anything special imo. I think the hype might have contributed to my disappointment. Btw you should read Palepoli. It's the kind of obscure manga that few connoisseurs appreciate but this is right up your alley.

You've read a decent amount of Manga but I'm surprised you haven't read Koe no Katachi.
TheKillerAngel Apr 3, 12:55 AM
If you read aikaflip's review of the show it pretty much summarizes my thoughts. A lot of people compare it to Ergo Proxy, which I thought was very good. While I'd perhaps gain something I missed if I rewatched Texhnolyze, I really don't want to.

Your opinion of Tatami Galaxy is one of the more unusual ones I've seen; it's often held up as some sort of holy grail of anime that is beyond reproach.

I'm really curious what you'd think of Texhnolyze.

Evangelion has perpetually sat on my watch list, eventually I'll get to it. I know it's more than just another mecha show, but it's a genre I'm usually indifferent towards. I'm not really enthusiastic about stuff like Kill la Kill or TTGL because their over the top nature makes it difficult for me to take the stories or characters seriously. They're moderately entertaining at best, but would never end up among my personal favorites.
TheKillerAngel Mar 29, 8:18 PM
Thoughts on Gainax? Evangelion seems to be their only title you really like.

LOGH is a strange one. It's very clearly adapted from novels, with the way the story is told. I think it's two biggest weaknesses are its visual presentation and pace. It doesn't employ any unique strengths or capabilities of animation to distinguish itself, compared to other old titles. The big ideas of imperfect democracy vs enlightened autocracy could be expressed in a shorter length, and some of the conflicts that arise within the democracy stretch plausibility for a show that tries to retain its gravitas.

I thought Mawaru Penguindrum's main flaw was how it used overly complex presentation and metaphors to convey simple ideas relating to family and belonging. I think a lot of Ikuhara's work is characterized by this overwrought symbolism which is why I'm reluctant to watch pieces like Revolutionary Girl Utena, even though many hail it as a masterpiece.

Do you see yourself finishing Legend of the Galactic Heroes?
TheKillerAngel Mar 25, 10:25 PM
Many people tend to associate her with melodrama. Is that your biggest problem with her writing? I noticed you haven't seen what a lot of people consider her magnum opus, AnoHana.
