I don't think they had bad intentions with this OVA, it was just a misguided effort. It would probably work fine as an ending to another story that builds up to such an end, but the fact that this is a Rurouni Kenshin OVA meant to end the anime storyline left a sour taste in my mouth.

Thanks, though, glad you enjoyed the review.

Ah... I see.
Thanks for replying. I think I will keep it as "On-Hold" for a long time then.

Aw, much appreciated! :)

I'm sure I will make more reviews with time, just hasn't been much time for enjoying anime in my own time lately.

Hmm, So according to your "Full Moon wo Sagashite" review, it it totally fine if I started watching it from episode 30 as they are worthless ? :o
I had watched the first two episodes, and thought it was OK. But damn, it's too long for me.

It was Obvious when on 2nd attack agains the King, he said "I can't go back anymore". He totally meant, that even sacrificing Himself, he was going to use everything he had just to beat the King.

This is totally the best fight i've ever seen. A fight with full of Meaning that we mostly don't realize in our Life.

Togashi did a perfect Job creating such a MASTERPIECE.

If it wasn't for Komugi and the game Played with her, Meruem would Have win easy agains Netero or Lose very fast agains him. It all depended to take The King away from 3 Guards. Sure Netero would have killed all 3 guards easily, but it would have cost a lot of time doing such so it was more easy to take down the King alone. I think Netero already knew he was gonna use the ROSE so he ended up in a desert Place.

Thank you so much it really means a lot to me that people seem to like my style of reviewing. And yeah you're right,i guess old habits die hard unlike the endless void that lives within us until the day we die and inevitably all our ex's will come to see if we really bought the farm and spit on us..You know,positive thinking.

You are right about the way we are compensated in the US. I won't share any precise figures, but I will put it this way: this is my first job straight out of university/graduation, meaning I have little experience besides internships during school. I am already making 100k+ a year, which is not including things like sign-on bonuses or perks. I am not exactly sure why we are compensated so nicely in the states, but that's how the market is. Granted, I think the development work that I do is quite challenging, so I definitely don't feel bad about the extra money. At some companies here, it is even more money. Honestly, sometimes I think it is kind of surreal! Regardless though, I'm pretty 'cheap' and I don't ask much from life. I think I'd be comfortable with a significantly lower pay too, so it never concerns me much.

I agree with the sentiment about freedom and disposable income. I very much prefer adult life, but of course, my circumstances are pretty fortunate. I don't have to worry about paying bills I barely afford or living paycheck-to-paycheck, I don't have children and I'm young. In either case, I have done something similar with regards to picking up hobbies/interests/etc. For me, it has been cooking. It is much easier for me to learn more about cooking when I can be alone and at peace in my own kitchen.

I am okay with you giving it an 8. Generally, speaking I tend to think scores within +/- 1 of my own score are things I can get behind and understand pretty easily. I do think however that when a movie does not 'have time to tell its story in full' then that is a fault in the writing of the movie. There are movies out there with even shorter runtimes that have told deep and purposeful stories. That's effectively a reason to dock points in my eyes.

That is some good news to hear about Violet Evergarden. I am stoked to watch it, but haven't made much progress. Whenever I do watch things I tend to watch them in the background when I do things like dishes, which means shows like Violet Evergarden which has shown promise to me isn't a good candidate (since I can't pay attention to the details if I watch it in the background). Instead, I've been watching some pretty low quality shows and anime, heh.

About your recent marriage: what's the story? This is a random question of course, but I suppose I'm a bit of a sucker for hearing people's stories. How did you two meet, what made you decide to get married? etc, etc.

That's precisely the proper motivation for continuing writing. I think that value is personal, but it is valuable nonetheless and worth doing.

I do work in the US. I'm a software engineer based in NYC now. I actually recently graduated from university, so this is my first time being an 'adult' with a place and an income, bills and taxes and whatnot.

I've watched A Silent Voice. I think it is definitely a graduation from what KyoAni may be known for. It is a step in the more mature direction. I think it was a good movie overall, but I felt that a lot of its 'substance' came from unneeded/unjustified melodrama. I think animes that have a lot of that tend to get score-inflation on this site and elsewhere, because the ramped up emotions probably hamper our ability to think clearly about the meaning and purpose of those emotions that the writing attempts to invoke. I say this because I think this movie is on the list of anime that had me put a high rating upon finishing the movie, and then upon revisiting and reflecting on that rating later on when I've 'calmed down', I changed the score to a lower one (currently I have it sitting at a 7/10). :)

I actually watched episode 1 of Violet Evergarden on Netflix. It is absolutely stunning and gorgeous. It just makes me feel as if KyoAni has never shown weakness in the visual department. It also feels much more mature than what they are probably known for, so you may just be right about KyoAni growing up. If they keep up with this pattern of putting out more mature and meaningful works, I would definitely not be complaining whatsoever!

Regardless, Violet Evergarden seems promising to say the least. I can't wait to continue watching it, I'm excited to see where they take it. Hopefully they keep up the quality I noticed in the first episode or two.

Holy crap! Congrats on tying the knot! A laid back job sounds amazing for the free time. I think you should continue to pursue your interests in writing and see where it takes you. I think writing is a great and deep thing to explore and engage in, with lots of fruits to bear if you are persistent and have discipline.

My new job is pretty great. We moved to a nice new office. I'm still getting the hang of things since I'm new, but I'm hoping things will get a lot easier as time goes on and I become more familiarize with my work environment and such. It'll have a bit of a ramp-up period, as it usually does, at least in my field (software), but I think it'll be alright as long as I keep at it.

Haha, what is it that you are watching? I am not sure if I've watched any KyoAni for a long time now, I wonder if they are still rolling with that moe-blob aesthetic.

I remember a Kaj. I could be misremembering, but I think you wrote a review for Elfen Lied that I enjoyed. I remember a line about the torn apart limbs reminding you of Barbie dolls. At least I think that was you. If someone else wrote a review for a series and I share the same opinion (and the review is well written), I won't feel the need to post my own. There's also an issue with quality. It's embarrassing to post a review that isn't very good. At least to me it is.

I still have copies of my old animenfo reviews. I don't think I have ALL of them, but I have most of them. I've been tweaking them over the years. Or, in a least two cases, completely re-writing them.
