First MAL reply in a year on your profile just dropping in for memes

The conversation was nearing its end and I just didn’t have the energy to reply anymore (and because of your late replies I figured you felt the same). Forgive me ;_;

Man, you’re living in the old times :P Even in the west (I was using sales numbers for Japan, where Haikyuu and AssClass are really big) the only one of those three that has been really big recently is Naruto. One Piece barely even makes it in the top 10 New York Times sales list, which is dominated by Tokyo Ghoul, One Punch Man and Attack on Titan. Hell, even Monster Girl manages to get higher than One Piece.

I’m assuming you mean Hyo-Hyo when you’re talking about the birdy thing. The birdy thing was his (the MC)’s girlfriend. Well, it contained her original memories at least, from before they were altered by Popo. I thought it was pretty obvious. When we were first introduced to her, she was laying on some chair unconsciously. Next to her was a collection of Hyo-Hyo’s with one of them missing. And after that Hyo-Hyo had some moments where she was behaving like a jealous girlfriend.

I tried to. I wanted to watch a few shows, but after a weeks of procrastinating I wanted to focus all my attention on one show (91 Days). I didn’t even manage to finish that haha. What about you?

That’s mean, how could you just forget about me ;_;

I’m very glad it’s ended. I regret picking the series up and getting so far I’m involved enough to want to see it end. I’m disappointed it didn’t end with a big twist involving Aizen though, that guy was great. Haikyuu is a very big series as well, much bigger than Bleach and also bigger than Naruto. So the Big 3 is an outdated term, even before Haikyuu you had Kuroko no Basket and up till recently Assassination Classroom. hope Hero Academia joins One Piece and Haikyuu as the new Big 3, the anime was really fun.

That’s good to hear. To be honest, I think the show went downhill a bit after episode 7. The show already masterfully dropped a few hints to the bigger story, so the second half of the show didn’t pack many punches. One part I especially didn’t like was the end of episode 11, with all those ridiculous betrayals. Still, it was an interesting show and a masterpiece during the first seven episodes. In fact, I already miss those first seven episodes ;_; I get what you mean though, I always wait at least a day before deciding on a rating and then it’s usually one point lower than I initially had in plan.

Haha, sounds like a good idea.

Damn man, a twelve day increase!

Indeed. Each arc branches out in multiple perspectives and Oda always tries to give each perspective a small moment. It’s like the polar opposite of Bleach, in which Kubo prepared a few battles and then went through them one at a time (which turned out to be bad as well). After the Doflamingo arc I learned my lesson so now I'm just waiting for this Zou arc to be over.

Mhm, that scene was amazing. I wasn’t sure if I understand it correctly though. Obviously the aunt loved her sister and niece. But after her sister died and she had to take care of the niece, she had to work very hard to make a living. Then she had an accident with her arms and her husband died, making the work even more unbearable. So she had to sell the niece’s memories, and eventually the niece’s body as well. That scene was the culmination of her regret, in which she thought back on the good old days. Does that sound about right? I felt so sorry for her during that scene, which felt weird because I also hated her for what she did to Chroniko. Because of that the ending of episode 7 is my favorite moment so far (watched 8 episodes). Vanilla was kind of creepy (though in a barely acceptable, sort of adorable way), but goddamn what a magnificent sacrifice scene. Truly a man amongst men. I’m not sure about giving it a 10, but I can say it’s one of the few shows I watch and am genuinely curious about how things are going to unfold. Well, when you finally do get around watching the other Yuasa shows, don’t expect another Kaiba :P

What is it that you didn’t like about Paranoia Agent? I always thought Satoshi Kon (the director) was supposed to be the second coming of Christ. For the record, I only watched the OP which is amazing, not the show itself. I wish more directors hired Susumu Hirasawa though ;_; Apparently the new Berserk is so bad that it affected his ability to make good music (the new insert song is shit).

Have you done it? By how much did it increase? I always like to see by how much the number goes up when I update my list, it’s silly but fun. One Piece will probably add a day or two haha.

There were some panels with Moria’s bats and I believe even a panel with his ship. But I don’t know the chapters in which those panels appeared, sorry. Indeed, instead they even decided to ruin her noble sacrifice in Gunbuster by reintroducing the aliens.

What’s up with you trying to make me watch all these shows I have always wanted to watch but never did?! I started watching (on episode 4) and it’s really good. Especially the first half of the first episode, which had some of the best direction I have ever seen in anime. The show is unexpectedly brutal, but I like how the drama stays light and has plenty of fun moments to mix it up (Butter’s harem cracked me up). Yuasa (the director) is great, you should check out his other works. I have watched Ping Pong and Tatami Galaxy and they’re both great shows.

Click on edit for a show and it will lead you to the usual input page for status (watching, completed), start date, etc. Click on more details and there’s an option to put in how often you rewatched or reread a series. This increases your days spent watching cartoons and adds to the rewatched/reread count on your profile.

I know. It’s the same with Moria, he was supposedly killed by Doflamingo but I believe his return has been recently hinted at. I kind of get it, but at the same time I thought it was a really warm welcome. Diebuster makes it kind of weird though because entire other planets have been colonized and space travel is very active. Yeah Diebuster is like an entire different anime. All those repercussions of time travel are absent, the new main character suffers from mental retardation, and on the whole it’s way too over the top as opposed to the original being down to earth. It builds up to the ending of Gunbuster and gives insight in how the Welcome Back message is created but it really just ends up ruining everything. It’s been a few weeks since I watched it but I’m still mad >:l

Thanks dude.
Straw Aug 15, 2016 6:35 AM
What, rewatching more than 600 episodes or having a girlfriend? :P

I never noticed Franky and Bon Clay had the same VA. I miss Bon Clay ;_; Yeah it’s best not to think about the technicalities of the ending too much haha. Like, you would think there’s at least some space colonization after 12,000 years right? I cried bitch tears too Phantom. Do you plan on watching the sequel Diebuster?

I just found out the side stories are half the length of the original series, Jesus. Maybe I’ll watch it somewhere near the end of this year. First I want to watch Fate, Gintama’s latest season (it’s so good) and Ghost in the Shell. By then this season should have ended which results in an additional seven shows. And then I really should watch some Gundam again. As you can see, my backlog is insufferable. Why didn’t you watch the side stories? They seem pretty interesting to me.
Straw Aug 11, 2016 2:54 AM
Yeah, you have it so bad, having a girlfriend to do things with :P

Haha, yes, Jung’s especially were great. Smith’s death was a lot sadder than it should have been. He was around for what, maybe half an episode? I see you ended up giving it an eight, were you also blown away by that fantastic finale? I have wanted to watch LotGH since I first started watching anime five years ago. I never got around to it, and at my current pace it would take me almost two months for the main series alone. It’s too damn long.

Definitely is <3
Straw Aug 8, 2016 10:33 AM
I feel sorry for Kappa for being forced to watch so many long shows (inb4 bad joke)

I’ll just avoid it then. The time where I watched things fully well knowing they would turn to shit has passed :P

That’s a shame. I thought episode 1 and 2 were just fine, but I started to really like when they got in space. That time lapse when they travel too far in space resulted in some gut wrenching scenes. I also liked the realism in Noriko’s character, her behavior felt really natural making it easy to relate with and root for her. One of my favorite moment is when she freezes up in her first space fight in episode 3 (see spoiler 1, not a spoiler for you anymore but still). The battles were really fun, well directed (just like the rest of the show, by the master Anno himself), and with high stakes and a killer soundtrack. Episode 5 is kind of shitty with that silly and cheesy subplot but the final episode returns to former quality, surpasses everything else in this show and then finishes with one of my favorite endings. Gunbuster is a simple anime, and a lot of its ideas have been repeated often since its release (perhaps before as well), so I can understand why someone would think it’s average. But I found it very captivating and I was disappointed by how its sequel Diebuster was radically different. By the way, if you’re reading this before watching episode six, make sure to watch the cropped episode and not the fullscreen one (that’s the way it was intended, I’ve read the fullscreen one has unfinished animation).

Spoiler for episode 3 Gunbuster:


This adapts Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 is also adapted by an older movie but just avoid it. Part 3 is adapted in two anime, with this being the first season and this the second. Part 3 also has an alternative, older, and very short adaption that you should also just avoid. Part 4 is currently being adapted as this. In short, all the JoJo anime by David Productions are good and the rest is bad. As for how they are as adaptions, Part 1, 2 and 4 have great adaptions but 3 not so much. I’m already not a fan of Part 3, but the anime has a very tediously slow pacing.
Straw Aug 8, 2016 9:04 AM
I’m the complete opposite, I have already forgotten details from what I watched just a few months ago. What about comedy, do you also not enjoy rewatching that? Pfft, what a terrible joke :P

Haha, then why did you gave it an one as rating? I tried it out back when it started airing but it didn’t really draw me in. Trapped in a fantasy world, female only companions (seems to me), time travel (sort of), edge and gore (so I heard). I’ve seen enough anime to know I’m generally not a fan of those things.

Let me know what you thought of Gunbuster, so that we can talk about how amazing this sound track is.
Straw Aug 7, 2016 8:32 AM
Pffft, first you complain about reading series with dead scanlations and then you say you have no use for it? :P

Not even series you watched years ago? I'm currently rewatching Fate/Zero after four years and it's amazing (depressing) how many details I forgot, which makes it pretty fun. Convincing her to start One Piece must have been difficult considering the size, haha.
