Here is another example of bad anime, GODLIKE OP
literaturenerd Yesterday, 10:22 PM
I love to talk about OPs and EDs, but so many people don't care and just skip them! Sadly, great anime can get stuck with awful OPs and horrible anime can wind up with great ones.

Consider this opening for the HORRENDOES Ikki Tousen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAZ9flutkBU

The band created the song for the 2nd season of Initial D, but just missed out on making that soundtrack. So this super catchy Europop/Jpop/rap fusion ended up on a terrible echii show.

EDIT: I made that 3x3 like four years ago. Honestly, it's still accurate but I chose Maison Ikkoku over InuYasha primarily because Maison Ikkoku was just fresh in my mind at that stage considering how I was watching it for the first time back then. The fact of the matter is that I have WAY more than just the 9 shows I hold near and dear to my heart, so I'm not lying when I say I love them both. It just so happens that I have a LOT more to say about InuYasha because I've been a fan for the last... 16 years?

Urusei Yatsura - I've only seen like four fansubbed episodes, but I definitely do like the series. Still, if I had to pick a show that forced a young man to live with an attractive woman from another world, I'd pick Ah! My Goddess because Belldandy is always best girl. Also do be warned that Urusei Yatsura isn't exactly popular so most of the streams are gonna be shitty VHS rips (that is to say, unless the series received a remastered DVD release recently). I think there was a dub that either Manga Entertainment or Central Park Media did for the show, but it was during the late 80s when dubbing wasn't exactly a refined skill.

Ranma 1/2 - Really liked it when I was in high school, but the joke wore thin after a while. I've never read the manga, but the anime was actually really funny. I'd only recommend the dub though if you're following it from Season 4-onward because that's when Richard Ian Cox takes over and makes so many repetitive plots that much more enjoyable. I haven't watched anything later than Episode 125(?) because that's where my old torrent ended and I didn't feel like downloading the rest. Oh and I also found out about Ranma when I was like 13 and I was watching a Robot Chicken sketch that parodied it.

InuYasha - I. FUCKING. LOVE. INUYASHA. I grew up watching this show when I was in 3rd grade and I still fucking love it now. It's ridiculous, it's stupid, it's fucking annoying to watch Inuyasha and Kagome or Miroku and Sango fight for the umpteenth time in a row, but I'll be damned if I could find another anime I love more than this one. It can be so outlandishly stupid that I'm suffering from secondhand embarrassment one minute and then completely bawling my eyes out the next and vice-versa. I don't give a shit what anyone says, my eyes start watering the moment that Kikyo's theme is playing and the sad flute starts. I remember when I saw the final episode of InuYasha when I was a kid and I was so fucking upset that I didn't know what happened everyone. I couldn't even finish the manga because my local library only had scattered volumes of the original flipped run of the manga (yeah, I'm REALLY going so far back). But then, a miracle happened when I was a junior in high school! Viz Media actually licensed the rights to The Final Act and I actually sat down and watched it from start to finish on their (now-discontinued) Neon Alley streaming service which turned out to be a shitty front-end for Hulu. At the very end of The Final Act when Sango and Miroku thought they were gonna die and they were holding onto each other for dear life, I was going full-on zetsuboushita. It was intense, it was inconsistent, and it was fucking tiring to get through, but the fucking payoff was worth it. To put into prespective just HOW much I love the show, I fucking hate Inuyasha's Japanese VA because his voice grates on my fucking ears considering how often he snarls. I was so engrossed with TFA that I didn't even care about Inuyasha's VA.

I liked it. Very beautiful imagery and sweet romance. Also Utena turns into a car!
literaturenerd Yesterday, 8:42 PM
I actually just watched the Utena movie earlier this week! Talk about a wild coincidence! I still need to watch the series.

About 3/4 of the way done at this point and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I don't find the chapter length to be off putting or detrimental to the experience at all. It doesn't feel like it's meandering towards the climax of each chapter, and is able to take a much more direct approach to its writing as a result. If I had one complaint, it would be with Shun as a whole. That character is forgettable as hell, and I have no reason to care for him as part of the main love triangle. That's pretty much it though, everything else is great and the scans I'm currently using are serviceable.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been reading Maison Ikkoku (and trying to study) the past few days lol
That's all fair. I was interested to see if you'd make any normative statements or if it just doesn't align with your preferences, it seems like the latter was the case. Cool though, that gives me a good idea of what you like from anime, especially considering UY is such a good benchmark for trope-checking.
literaturenerd Sep 10, 12:00 PM
I want to watch ACCA and then Vinland Saga.
tingoo Sep 9, 8:36 PM
Fair enough. I'm not really concerned with your rating at all, that's your thing. I would be interested to hear some of your issues though, so don't hesitate to rhyme some off if you feel like it.

Yeah, it's my first Rumiko Takahashi work. I'm thinking of checking out Maison Ikkoku's manga in the coming weeks, so I'll let you know what I think at that point.
tingoo Sep 9, 3:25 PM
So far I think it's pretty good. Although the episodes thus far have been fairly formulaic, I wouldn't say it's "repetitive". I see it in the same vein as series like Gintama, where the punch line is going to be similar most of the time, but how they get there is the interesting part. I would argue that that very structure is what gives it its charm, and makes it "good".
literaturenerd Sep 7, 9:27 PM
I like your taste. Although I haven't seen a few of your favorites. Of the ones I've seen, they're all solid picks!
Craftyslr Sep 6, 9:23 PM
Why thank you :)
literaturenerd Sep 6, 2:55 PM
I really like it so far!
-Nyammy- Sep 4, 5:10 PM
Yeah, Kare Kano's great
PrimeYona7 Sep 3, 6:19 PM
That's a shame. I would recommend the manga over the anime just cuz its tighter and the art is exceptional. I do have issues with the anime but nothing substantial. What didn't you like about?

Kare Kano is a respectable choice. Probably the best romance anime if we're exclusively talking about the first 18 episodes. I can't agree with it being better directed as there are more evocative shots in Eva that stayed with me more than Kare Kano. But hey, that's my opinion.

Sure, what's your user, I'll add you as soon as I can.
