didn't read the whole KareKano review just jumped in to your Final thoughts. Agreed with you, I actually have the ambivalent feelings toward the directing, as for the characters I think they are refreshing to see in my case coz maybe of the types of anime i've watched over the past couple of months.

I actually have yet to watch a lot of the stuff you've seen

I liked your Nanoha StrikerS review, but can you extrapolate on how do you think the villains are good, especially Scaglietti since I heard a lot of people saying that he's kind of a cliché unrealistic Scientist who would be at home in High School of the Dead.

From my point of view, although he's a crazy character, even prepared to nuke Midchilda, blaming the Organisation for all of his actions, but yeah he isn't that crazy to casually order million of deaths because so, he only actually killed 4 characters so far in the series and they are all related to the Organisation scandal. He's even milder than real life tyrants like Hitler.

Another most argued part about StrikerS I often hear is the first half which I likely hear to be like slow, boring, but imo I liked it because it helps me acclimate with the old and news also slowly building up for the second half which is really good. Is that really viewers' standards or they just treat slow burn = bad pacing objectively or they're used to the pace of the previous seasons?

And finally, is having too many characters like in StS really a flaw as most people say or they are just overreacting

was thinking of picking up penguindrum, and was linked to here from your review.
squid girl above AOT and having same rating as vinland saga is enough context.
but ngl there are a lot of lowkey names that I've gotten from your list that I need to pick up so thank you for that.

The only one I recall that is kind of similar to Slayers is Maze the mega burst space
Which is not even as good as Slayers but is still fun to watch

Do you know Japanese by any chance?
Feitan_exe Mar 16, 11:09 PM
I was talking about the OVAs and Movies like Slayers the motion picture movie, Slayers Excellent ova, slayers gorgeous movie , slayers the books of spell (ova), slayers movie 1, 2 (this one is so funny), 3. All of them featuring Grace UI Naga. Do u have any more comedy series like this with female protagonist and adventurous setting, I would love to try one

will you review Madoka Rebellion?

Just wanted to say your Neon Genesis was the worst review ever made on that anime.
To compare lacking any substance in Neon's writing, with a satire work like Kill la Kill
is just absurd.

There's no magical "religious" symbols people need to hallucinate to understand Neon Genesis.
There's simply the plot of a human race defending themselves to survive.
Your lack of warranting Neon for any basic credit, is just.....dumb.

Have you read Nanoha Force? I read it and understand why a lot of people say it's bad (as do I, as a casual fan of the franchise), it's basically a fanfiction written by a kid who tries to be edgy and everything about it got absorbed into Reflection and Detonation.Your Elfen Lied's review basically sums up most the major flaws about it which I seriously detest. (there's even a guy named Sansker who was ripping up every Force's chapters day by day back then)

Your reviews are brutal but I respect them

Wally and Mr. A each shared an idea about why American Christianity is the way it is that I found interesting. First, that it was the place believers of wackier and more obscure sects were banished or fled to. I think this is a big part of why Canada and the States are so puritanical about sex and nudity now - a lot of the people who founded these countries were literal puritans! Secondly, the culture of the frontiersman in America meant that a lot of people couldn't regularly attend Church and would just learn whatever version of Christianity their dad made up from reading the Bible, which could also be even wackier than the mainstream faiths, which had spent centuries developing their theology though study and consensus. The Catholic Church isn't exactly a force for progress in my opinion, but this more advanced theology does at least lead to being able to say "yeah, Genesis 1 probably uses the timespan of 1 week metaphorically" instead of having to bend over backwards to deny every single suggestion that the Earth is older than 5,000 years. I would add that American ultra-capitalism is a third factor. The so called "Prosperity Gospel" is popular in America because secular society here already implicitly suggests that people with more money are innately superior and faith healing is popular in part because people are desperate to believe in any other form of medicine than the States' rampantly corrupt profit-driven medical system.

It does sound like BDSP are very lackluster remakes not just compared Platinum, but especially to the Gen 2 and 3 remakes if that's all they add. The whole Dexit issue probably comes into play too, it looks like BDSP have all 493 gen IV Pokémon but it might feel a little less interesting compared to being able to play HeartGold with Lucario or throw around Mega Stones in Omega Ruby. All 3 Mother games on one system would be a dream come true. Although it's getting better lately with remasters like Metroid Prime and TTYD, it would be nice to see Nintendo support their retro games more. Speaking of Pokémon, I'd personally love to see the first two generations and Pokémon Stadium on Switch with integrated support for one another. The first two Smash games with online would be pretty cool too.

I did play Pokémon Moon but don't remember the story too well, the trials were a nice variation on Gyms but do they really change much on the narrative front? I do remember the crazy mommy from Aether Foundation and that a lot of people think Guzma is a charming character. I actually bought Scarlet and have been playing it a bit lately, so far the big thing that stands out narratively for me is Team Star being a lot more nuanced with the members seeming like normal kids who care about each other instead of cartoonish villains like the elites in Team Rocket and Galactic. I just hope to see more of those characters since so far they only have one flashback and quick cutscene each when you beat them. Sword and Shield being on console and Legends: Arceus shaking the series up a little got Youtubers and critics who hadn't played Pokémon in years to try them out which is part of where the controversy came from. There are kind of two different conversations on Pokémon I think. The games are very far from seeming "next gen" even though they belong to the most profitable video game franchise and newcomers are immediately turned off by the frankly embarrassing technical and graphical performances of the games and the very stiff cutscenes, but playing Scarlet as a long-time Pokémon player it's very satisfying in terms of the more in-depth mechanics. All the new convenience features mean that optimizing your Pokémon for nature/ivs/evs without hacking is no longer a task only for the psychotic, being able to pick up items while moving and see Pokémon before you fight them are a huge deal, and the open world gives you a lot of freedom in terms of which Pokémon to build a team from. I don't mind the lack of level scaling because I use lower level areas as an opportunity to train new Pokémon and have like three teams' worth going, but I do wish they would at least signpost what levels a specific area or challenge are for better. The Great Tusk boss is lvl 43 in a level ~20 area! I only beat that because I had an overleveled Quaquaval from rushing for the Amulet Coin. Electric only being weak to ground is one of those things I knew but never really gave much thought, taking down a bulky levitate user in Terra Electric like Cresselia, Bronzong, or Giratina sounds like a nightmare. I suppose that's where the new Terra Stellar comes in, Terra Blast from Stellar would still hit super-effective on those Pokémon. Apparently Serperior is just about the only good user of that though, its hidden ability Contrary lets it boost its Special Attack using Stellar Terra Blast instead of lowering it. It seems like in competitive the high tier Pokémon are mostly power-crept newcomers like Kingambit, Gholdengo, and most Paradox Pokemon (Iron Bundle is banished to "Ubers" alongside the likes of Arceus and Crowned Zacian which is hilarious to me because it's fucking Delibird!) However there are a few cases of older Pokémon like the aforementioned Dragonite and Serperior keeping up because they have new tools, which is nice to see. I'm looking forward to going into the DLC and catching some of the cooler Gen 8 Pokémon like Scorbunny that I haven't had a chance to use before. Saying Scarlet/Violet fell short of being top 3 generations makes me think you have a definite top 2, what would those be? For me personally if we're breaking it down by generation I really like 4, the ability to import Pokémon from Gen 3 just by sticking the cart in your DS makes it so convenient to play with nearly all its options, having different moves be physical/special instead of that being decided by types was for me the last truly crucial mechanic to be added, and it has the remake of G/S which are the best games in a vacuum because of how cool revisiting Kanto is. Am I right in guessing you like 7 as well?

I think it would be possible to implement diversity/inclusion-related themes in a way that's hamfisted, which is a generous way to read a complaint like that toward Lightyear. I've only ever really seen that in webcomics and fanfiction though. Maybe some truly low-quality mainstream stuff like the recent Velma show. It's way more common for (usually terminally online) people to ham-fistedly read media as being somehow ruined by diversity. I think Hell will freeze over before a Disney or Pixar film tries "too hard" to be diverse though. They're deep into the safe corporate mindset and like to include some spoken references to gay people to pander to woke American viewers and then dub them out of the movies in regions where diversity isn't profitable. Lightyear is actually probably one of the better examples of inclusivity from them with the relationship between the commander lady and her wife. Disney's approach usually leads to racist and homophobic viewers complaining about the inclusion of non-white people and LGBT people while gay people also feel left out by surface pandering. I was particularly frustrated with the recent Strange World where the protagonist's son has a boyfriend with about two minutes of screentime and the film repeatedly has other characters remind the audience he likes a boy without ever actually exploring their relationship. It being brushed over so quickly didn't stop a commentator on the site I used to watch it from hilariously describing the film as, and I quote "demonic indoctrination of our children." I can look at that and just laugh at it but I hope that person doesn't have any LGBT relatives.

I was digging some old Nanoha posts back then, then I got this post with the opening words "Nanoha StrikerS has a bad rap": https://myswordisunbelievablydull.wordpress.com/2011/05/25/a-study-of-pantsless-nanoha/ and one commented on that post that they've been assaulted with negative critiques about StrikerS



And then there's NanoFate.us (Nanoha fandom forum back then), a guy literally started the StrikerS thread with a rant about it and then the same thread were followed up with mostly negative responses (even the OP said it): https://web.archive.org/web/20191108153051/http://nanofate.us/content/mahou-shoujo-lyrical-nanoha-strikers



I actually watched StS and liked it without the knowledge about the fandom but when I found it I was very surprised. After that I tend to lose my composure when reading the negative comments about it because StS is also one of the most important series of the franchise but somehow why people including the fans of the series give it a good amount of negative responses about it, some even says that StrikerS is a controversial series, which can contribute to a feeling that you're factually wrong if you liked StrikerS


About the MAL score, Elfen Lied is also rated 7.47 (which means good) but in the review you said the responses are mostly negative so I was wondering about the same thing with StrikerS to find out why people hated it back then.

Sorry if I was overthinking
