A belated hello back at you. I don't use MAL much anymore, and when I do list tag mini-reviews torture me. Will-not-fucking-fit.

I remember our Maoyuu thing regarding my S&W rec, very vaguely. And weren't you the guy that made the MAL review system critique thread? Feels so long ago now. 4years ago... man, age has caught up with me. Feel old.

I'm surprised you or anyone found that review on Amazon. I'd forgot it was on there. Whereabouts do you live if it cost you THAT much for shipping? Pity you don't live in the UK: some poor sod was trying to sell a complete set for months for next to nothing. Hurt to see knowing it's OOP and such a wonderful series.

I've done that blind buy thing many-a-time, ending up with around 1000 volumes of manga. End result? Recently sold 220-300+ volumes on eBay. But, like you, Chrno Crusade was one I lucked out on, having liked the anime. Even now, close to a decade later, it still moves me thinking about how painful it was for Chrno to fight, knowing he was slowly killing the woman he loved by doing so. No other series has ever had a similar 'love/life-depleting' premise, that I know of. Truly unique and special to me.

NTR rapey Aion was always... bizarre. Usually anime adaptations try to cut stuff like that; not randomly add it! My memories are hazy now, so you'll have to remind me, but didn't Chrno and Aion have a heart-to-heart at the very end? I distinctly recall Aion referring to Chrno as his brother... been too long.

ANYWAY, happy someone out there listened to me and ended up going even higher than me with their rating. Will send you a friend request.

PS: Is that Kyouko from Maison Ikkoku? And "fakemorisummer": recently watched S2 of Chuunobu; around time you messaged me.

I havent looked whats coming out next year, besides FMP sequel which is the only thing i am really looking forward too.

I dont watch alot of 24 episode series either, though I did watch 7 deadly sins recently which I surprisingly enjoyed alot.

I was looking at the reviews for True Tears in hope to get a better understanding of it and yours helped me a lot. I'm grateful for that!

Yeah. I've seen it btw and agree. I brought it up because True Tears kinda reminded me of KimiNozomu ... but overall felt much more rewarding, organic and better, even if it didn't go all out like KimiNozomu did.

The melodrama in KimiNozomu is what killed it for me. It was still decent in how it had the balls to actually go all out with the characters and story ... and the fact they made two separate alternative endings for the girls (something I wish True Tears had too haha) was an interesting idea you rarely see done in romance anime. Still it just lacked something for me, the characters acted way too stupid in situations which could have been resolved easily with a proper dialog and the mc's relationship with Haruka was way too forced and ridiculous at the end of the day.

Ef: tales I haven't seen tho, thanks for the recommendation. I was just looking for another romance so I'll be sure to watch it! Sorry if I typed too much and thanks for the fast reply!

"True Tears, for me, was a masterpiece.
But, c'mon. They could've picked a better name. "

Damnn straight man! True Tears was a masterful romance!

Have you seen Rumbling Hearts btw? What do you think of it if you have seen it?
Ikusagami Sep 11, 11:49 AM
That actually like my kind of anime. I guess the global popularity of Game of Thrones is the reason we're finally getting some decent fantasy entries.

I'll have to remember to die AFTER finishing my trilogy, and not sooner. Gotta make the most of it.


Haha, didn't you say that with horror movies you just suspend disbelief? Now you sound like me. :P
But yeah, it really annoyed me both of them travelled so far looking for each other, but didn't even think to look up phone numbers or anything. I see why it was required for the plot, but it was implausible enough to facepalm at. Didn't kill the enjoyment, though.

Hm, I think I might have seen Beyond the Clouds, but I have no recollection of it. Probably would have soiled my enjoyment--a lot of my appreciation was that the concept seemed fresh to me.
I'll try to check out your analysis tomorrow.

Haha, congratulations on having more insight into media trends than pretentious weebs. Maybe you should seek employ in the anime media industry, so you get the recognition to influence a medium slowly dying from mediocrity.
Skadi Sep 8, 2:20 PM
I'll have to look into it. I havent been watching anything from the new season yet. As of now only New Game is on my list to watch for sure. Been catching up on old things or movies that came out recently. It does look like my kind of thing though.

Finally saw Kimi no Na wa. Finally really enjoyed a Shinkai film.
Who ever knew a transtemporal transmigrational transgender love story could be so moving?

First thing's first:
Neon Holocaust Evangelion

How was Kimi no Na wa? I've heard nothing but praise, but still haven't gotten around to it.

lol. What a bastard, keeps churning out shit you like. Why can't more creators just have the decency to die in their prime, anyway?
And if it's just cashgrab material, just tell yourself it doesn't count, isn't part of the legacy, and so your collection IS complete.
And then send death threats for fucking up the ending, like people did to Hideaki Anno.

No, missed me again. :P I started The Office years ago, but it just didn't keep my interest. I'm really out of the loop when it comes to television.

"Pfff, you're such a Bob."
I just watched The Matrix trilogy the other night, so I immediately thought of this:

Haiii, no need to apologize.
I realize you must be busy and hence you cant be around here much. It happens, life is like that. """LIFE""" stuff
Lmao, trying to put everything you can in your CV. I know that feel. Its like make up. Gotta put up everything you can find, anything that adds goes lol.

And oh wow, will do then. Heard interesting things about both versions and have all of the manga to read. Id love to dig into it. Will watch for sure. Fantasy stuff is my thing man. I love adventure fantasy in particular so it really seems like something I'll love. Its priority one. I have some seasonal stuff that I gotta get on as well but not much beyond that so.

And lol, I mostly been watching One Piece with my girlfriend and not much else other than animated movies. Kon's stuff is great. Tokyo Godfathers was a delight of a movie. Watched all his stuff and just missing Children who chase lost voices for Shinkai. And the Ghibli ones Im missing as well. Lots of great stuff honestly.

And lol, they mentioned it for me heheh. I actually picked it because of Wolfsbane the mutant from the New Mutants, from the X-men. Lmao, still a cool username I think. Might change again tho. Too many ones that I like a lot aaaaaaaa. The Wolfsbane flower is cute af.

Português né? Mentira, eu já sabia disso por que dei uma olhada no seu blog. Mas achei que você sabia coreano já que no review você escreve "I'm pretty sure volume 11 is already complete and I remember seeing a Korean scan of it somewhere. Unfortunately it seems all scanlating groups dropped the series and unless one of you guys know how to read Korean and is willing to translate, we're out of luck" (immediately realizes fuck up, you said "we're" not "you're," so yea, my bad, I shouldn't have assumed you knew Korean).

Boa sorte com o japonês, e que você consiga ler o final do Kannagi eventualmente (eu tenho os raws caso você queira).
Abajur Jul 31, 12:58 PM
Just out of curiosity, how many languages do you speak? Asking because I happened to stumble upon another one of your reviews (Kannagi manga review) where you mention Korean.
Abajur Jul 31, 9:44 AM
Nice Getsuyoubi no Tawawa review, and that is coming from someone who usually doesn't read reviews (to be honest I didn't fucking finish reading it, but it was nice anyways). I mainly liked one of your ending remarks "yes, this wasn't exactly a review," keep doing that, actual reviews fucking suck.

Aside from the length (I'd explain why there's a length requirement, but I can't remember what congress told me), everything about the article is up to the writer's discretion. I personally took the pictures and placed them in the spots I saw fit. While I didn't code it, I made the choice to have the routes in a listed manner, like 11,10, etc. While I agree with what your saying about the qualities of each route being subjective, I do write the article from the first person, implying that they are my opinions. I didn't really want a disclaimer saying, "these are only my opinions". And how analytical articles get are up to the writer's discretion. There's this article I helped along in the editing process that is SUPER analytical of Psycho-Pass. Like, you'd think it's a college thesis. I also have another article that's done and waiting to get uploaded that is an analysis of Air. Unlike my Clannad article, it's written in the third person. Basically, the only things that aren't up to the writer's discretion are the word limit and whether their topic gets accepted, and the admins are pretty good with approving decent topics. However the write is up to them.

And yeah, you too. Thanks for approaching me in a civil manor. ;)
