I would be unconcerned moving from the PM inboxes to general comments section as a form of reply. It actually does its job to navigate quickly or refer to messages immediately without messing up. You could easily track what topic you've left and successively reply to the person on the other end. My only concern is that it may seem easy commenting on profile but what about interference you could get from others as they will be able to read since it is publicly posted on here? I don't really mind but my commentaries usually range from objectively rating based on substance to empirical knowledge based solely on experiences, what I've noticed, believed, felt, hoped, knew, imagined, sensed, remembered etc. and thus somehow represent.

I wasn't surprised that you numerously encountered shounen not because it targeted mainly the demographic, it is also easy to say it is near to youth. But anime doesn't seem to be stuck in just particular age but carried on on all age levels. It's like you cannot easily do away from Hiruma Youichi of Deimon Devil Bats even if you're at 56. I understand my brother being particularly drawn into tokustasu, action loaded and adventure-filled anime in which I could personally relate to him. You have named some conventional classics in your previous message and we're also up to it. Last time I checked on him, he's been watching Magi. Unlikely, I got more diverse set when it comes to anime preference.

I see this conversation is getting into somewhere. If I'm to slack I'd shitpost particularly on tumblr. I wasn't too long on reddit but I shityounot the site's at the very least keeping the internet from its ultimatum...well only with some subbreddits, ofcourse.

The only memes I see of worth are Jojo memes.

I recall you've said in the past that you are busy. So then how do you have the time to binge?

What other stuff do you do besides watch anime?

I've decided to change how I view seasonal anime. I used to watch the 1st ep of everything, and then watch weekly, but that's made me more exhausted and cynical. Starting this season, I've decided to give 1st ep chances to anime whose plot synopsis's sound interesting, and if I like them, I put them on-hold to finish after they've finished airing. Anime like Killing Bites that are easy to consume junk, I watch weekly, though.

I just watched the first ep of Violet Evergarden, and I think you'll really like it. It doesn't seem to be a slice of life, but is instead a much more down-to-Earth episodic story, with elements of drama.
NihilisticLoner Jan 10, 8:07 PM
Why do you have a picture of Ginko on the top of your profile description, even though Ginko isn't your favorite character of all time?
Is the pic supposed to represent you somehow?
NihilisticLoner Jan 3, 12:22 AM
What do you mean?
NihilisticLoner Jan 2, 10:49 PM
Yeah, I'm fine with those day-to-day activities. I just wish those day to day activities just had a TINY spark of conflict. Something minuscule like Kanna being lost for a whole episode.

I didn't mean to imply that you should try to look for the most 10/10 anime.
So you're saying that your scores are based on how successful you feel an anime is by the area they're trying to excel in? And not everything else?

"Like do you think Monster has perfect scene-by-scene writing, story-boarding, editing, composition and animation?"
I don't get much of that stuff no matter how many videos of them I watch.

My rating scores are based literally by how much I like the anime. I gave King's Game a 6/10. Yes, I agree with literally everyone that it is beyond shit...but I like it.
NihilisticLoner Jan 2, 9:48 PM
I mean yeah, she was lonely, but I don't recall it being brought up again, or brought up that often. There aren't big dramatic scenes where characters start crying and screaming.
Yes, the characters do major things at the start, but after that, I don't recall them doing anything else.
Like, with a series like Mushishi, there's a little conflict sprinkled in for every episode. I wish that was the case with Dragon Maid, but on a much lesser scale.

Wasn't Tohru part of something called a, "Chaos" faction, that aimed to destroy the world or something? Several times, she tries to kill people simply because she deems them as annoyances to Kobayashi, so I think that's evidence that she's killed a lot of innocent people.
Fafnir's view on humans seems a little TOO dark for him to have NOT killed innocent people.
I'm a very judgmental person: if I meet an attractive girl, literally, my first thoughts are, "What are the chances of her framing me for sexual harassment?"

I don't think you can give an opinion that gives an anime, "justice" unless you rewatch said anime at least twice, take notes, analyze scene-by-scene for writing, story-boarding, editing, composition, animation. I don't think any anime, "critic" actually does all that.

Praying can only get you so far. Well, I'm atheist, so I don't believe in that stuff anyway. I've decided to take a bet that you'll be dead before you finish your plan to watch list. If that happens, I'm going to treat myself to a sushi buffet, once every week, for an entire month (I have a fucked up sense of humor).
NihilisticLoner Jan 2, 8:42 PM
Yeah, that's what I also meant to say. I don't think any of the characters actually feel lonely. Yeah, I recall a few scenes where they felt a little homesick. But for the most part they're pretty happy.

I wouldn't describe the emotion as, "precious". Maybe cute? Sweet? Well, there's also the fact that Tohru and Fafnir probably killed 1,000s of innocent people. Maybe a word between "weird" and, "sweet"?
I don't really get how Kobayashi is so calm about it.

Now that I think about it, "gimmicky" wasn't the right word. Aside from Tohru worshiping Kobayashi, their personality's are down-to-earth enough. I guess I just wish Tohru was a little less hyper? Kobayashi a little less deadpan?
I'm not entirely sure what my tastes are in characters in anime. I like "cool" or, "charismatic" or, "humble" characters.
Tenma is just the MC of Monster. He's the everyday friendly humble guy, who for some reason I liked.

I precisely began rewatching Dragon Maid, because I felt like it, and thought that I didn't appreciate it as much as I should have.

On another note, how the actual f*ck are you going to finish your plan to watch list? I recall you saying you're usually busy. You rewatch a lot. And from what I've observed of your anime history, you seem to go at a slow pace.
I mean at this rate, I think you'll die from old age before you even complete 1/4 of your plan to watch list.
NihilisticLoner Jan 2, 6:33 PM
What does "lel younger" mean?

I assume that you dislike fan service, because I recall when reading your tag on it, that's what it appeared as. Kill la Kill isn't really heavy on fan service, primarily just having characters in skimpy outfits, which is played more for laughs than anything.

Keijo and Jojo...oh man. If there's another reason you should watch them besides the memes, it's just to say how outrageously stupid they get.

Strange, I couldn't find Devil, Sunday, Lagoon, and Konosuba on your lists, even when I used the search bar.

The first ep of Higurashi should be more than enough to tell you what kind of series it is, and if you'll like it.

"The feeling of being left by yourself, that loniless, the differences in culture and standing out within a crowd and with the ways they go about showing some of these things"
I never felt that. In fact, I felt the complete opposite.
I don't remember the characters having any interactions that I felt were, "meaningful".

I do like how strange and awkward it feels, watching a whimsical cozy slice of life series, where most of the characters could literally cause Armageddon. That's something I've never experienced from any other anime.
And like you said, it never tries to shove an emotion to you. Toru isn't crying in big dramatic scenes, Kanna is just naturally adorable, Kobayashi's pretty chill, and even the comedy feels much more down-to-earth, instead of having characters screaming and overreacting to everything.

I mean I think I have a clear picture of what Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid is and what it's trying to do...which is something that I've never been too fond of in anime.
Quirky characters and archetypes I've never been a real fan of. I like characters that are more down-to-earth (Tenma from Monster), funny (Joseph Joestar), crass (Revy), charismatic (the cast of Baccano!).
What I'm saying is that I like the characters more than say, a typical harem light novel adaptation, but nowhere near as much as, say, the cast of Baccano!.
NihilisticLoner Jan 2, 12:36 PM
Just rewatched ep 2 of Dragon Maid. I don't mean to start and argument, but I don't get why you love this anime so much. Presentation wise, it was the best tv anime of 2017. But I find the tone and characters to be too quirky, as well as characters just...not really doing anything in particular. Like, there seems to be a lack of any activity going on.
NihilisticLoner Jan 2, 1:31 AM
If I was younger, I'd probably be interested in Koi. But now, I'm sick of "realistic romance drama" anime.

Yyyeeaahh...that's my bad. I sometimes misread a detail or two when reading long paragraphs. Okay, I'll rephrase that answer:

Well, I need to know what kind of anime you're looking for for recommendations, but so far I only know that you have a particular love for slice of life, and you seem to have watched the few slice of life I have watched already.

If you like over-the-top, absurd, insane anime, then I recommend:

-Kill la Kill: I know you dropped it. But it is arguably the best tv anime series, in terms of animation, that BURSTS with creativity.
-Space Patrol Luluco
-Shimoneta
-Jojo
-Keijo

Random recommendations:

-Devil is a Part Timer: much more subdued and dry humour then most comedy anime.
-Sunday Without God: I'm actually not sure how I'd feel about it now. I remember it was an incredibly beautiful anime that explored the idea of what would happen if people couldn't die.
-Higurashi
-Berserk: a poetic epic. Not emo and edgy like something like Tokyo Ghoul
-Black Lagoon: rule of cool popcorn, while having a pretty dark undertone.
-Konosuba: a cast of loveable morons and assholes.
-Natsume's Book of Friends: Seriously. Watch this ASAP.
-Neon Genesis Evangelion: it's not confusing like people make it out to be. Just gotta pay attention and think for less than a minute when shit gets trippy.

I've decided to organize this comment with bold words, because it's too damn long.

Tastes
I don't know about your other tastes. I like Iyashikei, but slice of life is a genre I feel hesitant about.

Rewatching
Rewatching Baccano and Kobayashi's Dragon Maid has taught me that rewatching isn't quite as cracked up as it is. Don't get me wrong, I really like both anime, but it feels more...tiring? upon rewatch. Especially Baccano, because I constantly have a hype orgasm while watching it.

Seasonal anime
I still plan to continue watching anime seasonally and weakly, but I need to use a tool to make me remember each episode every week. My method of seasonal anime used to be, "give literally everything a chance"...but it's proven to be an extremely exhausting method. Now, I primarily go by which anime sounds interesting by plot synopsis, and recommendations by Youtubers. As for the anime I plan to watch:

-Death March: I love Isekai junk garbage.

-Fate/Extra Last Encore: I've shit on Fate a lot, but it's a franchise I find very interesting, and one that I want to improve my feelings on. The game's plot seems interesting, from what I've seen of it. Also, Tamamo may become my waifu.

-Beatless: "Girl meets boy" is a plot I'm not tired of. But I'm also intrigued by it being a sci-fi drama. The cover makes it look like it's gonna be one of those, "beautiful but sad" anime, and I love that shit.

-Darling in the FranXX: it's Studio Trigger.

-Skilled Teaser Takagi-san: heard good things about the manga from BestGuyEver.

-Ito Junji Collection: I've started to get into horror lately. I haven't read any of Ito's works, but I've heard they're good. There's a serious lack of actual horror anime, and I have high hopes that this will be an actual good horror anime.

-Kokkoku: plot just sounds interesting. Also, psychological is probably my favorite genre in anything.

-Killing Bites: sexy animal girls fighting bloody battles. Sounds totally rad.

-Yuru Camp: Camping is never explored in anime, so this sounds interesting. It, combined with the cute girl designs, looks as though it's going to be a chill series.

-Ryuuou no Oshigoto: I love cute little girls and comedy.

-Toji no Miko: an original series + cute girls with swords.

-Hakumei to Mikochi: tiny beings...sounds fairy-tale-like.

-Sora yori mo Tooi Basho: sounds absolutely boring. But it's an original series by Madhouse, the studio that has made a lot of the most enjoyable anime I have ever experienced.

-Slow Start: sounds like a harmless, short series, that I can watch without wasting much time.

-Hakyuu Houshin Engi: light novel adaptation + generic art cover...pretty doubtful I'll like it. But it's about someone fighting demons, while being trained by one. Contradictions fascinate me.

Monster, Akagi, Kaiji? Depends on your tastes.

Monster is an insanely long mystery story with a massive web of locations, plot lines, and characters that all tie into one central conflict, and it's kind of a slow burn. It doesn't take itself as seriously as many dark anime like Fate/Zero, instead being much more realistic and nuanced with its tone.

Akagi and Kaiji are by the same creator, and from what I've seen of Akagi, it has the same appeal. However, Akagi is about mahjong, so unless you know how to play it, you'll have no idea what's happening.
Kaiji is 48 episodes of nonstop blood-pumping raw intensity gambling with ridiculously high stakes and tension, as well as constant psychological manipulation, while being nearly impossible to predict. Yet, the slightly goofy art style, and the stage-like narrator, adds a slight edge of comedy to relieve some of the tension.
Don't expect there to be anything more than it is: it doesn't focus on character development (save for Kaiji), subplots, and has a plot that goes beyond what is initially presented.

Calling out scores
Yes, I'm perfectly fine with people disagreeing with my scores. I may be willing to even rewatch those same anime.
NihilisticLoner Jan 1, 9:45 PM
Our tastes seem quite different, but I am always curious of peoples' favorite anime's that I haven't seen, so I've decided to add it to my plan to watch list now.

Do you plan on doing anything new with your anime viewing experience this year?

I've decided to rewatch all anime that I consider to be favorites, so I can, "sort out" my feelings for them, and finally fill that favorites list, starting with Baccano! (and it's still fucking amazing).

Before, my plan was to finish my plan to watch list ASAP, but I realized I was only rushing and limiting my anime viewing experience. So I've decided to just chill, take my time, and watch whatever I want, whenever I want. I've got plenty of time.
NihilisticLoner Dec 31, 2017 8:34 PM
What kind of anime is Non Non Biyori? I've seen it pop up a lot, so I've become really curious.
NihilisticLoner Dec 29, 2017 9:47 PM
It's the awkward and dumb people that are the most sincere. Because their flaws are more out in the open, and their insecurities are apparent, they sympathize more and appreciate people more who pay them attention.
I mean my best friend is autistic.

If I start making threads again, it won't be until a LONG time, until I can get the heat off of me. Recently, I blew up, and made a rant thread about the problems with MAL people...and of course, that didn't solve anything.
