Re: What are you watching/reading Q2 2020?

I went through the three Project Itoh films. Genocidal Organ, Harmony and The Empire of Corpses. I'm not sure if I particularly enjoyed Genocidal Organ. There were some neat ideas in and about it I suppose. Harmony I'm also a bit eh on, though I quite liked the setting. I think I enjoyed The Empire ...

Re: What are you watching/reading Q1 2020?

Lockdown led me to binge some random stuff of previous seasons and watch movies I forgot about. ID Invaded - Interesting while it lasted I suppose but I don't think it'll leave much of a mark on my memory. Pet - Found this rather entertaining, even the amount of awfully spoken Mandarin was somewhat ...

Re: vtubers

I only had some casual exposure so here's my thoughts and experiences. The only one I really watch is Kizuna Ai, and it's kinda an on and off affair rather than following her religiously. I like her cause she's a complete spaztic and fairly unrestrained in her reactions to games. I did watch a bit o...

Re: What are you watching/reading Q1 2020?

Ishuzoku Reviewers - It is so unabashedly shameless that it ends up being rather fun. Definitely not everybody's cup of tea granted. Dorohedoro - I'm quite enjoying this. Kyokou Suiri - Feels like the latest attempt at a -monogatari type show. Probably would've enjoyed it a lot more 5 years ago. Too...

Re: What Are You Watching!/Reading! Q4 '19

I never delved too deeply into the Food Wars anime, but the manga was more or less downhill after a while. And it didn't even bother to completely shit the bed like Yakitate Japan did, which would've at least been entertaining. Kinda just went out with a half arsed whimper. Kabukicho Sherlock is pre...

Re: What Are You Watching!/Reading! Q4 '19

Gave Babylon a shot. I thought it was pretty interesting. Though being the mystery/thriller type of show, how I feel about the whole thing is really going to hinge on how it all concludes. I'm not too sure what to think of Houkago Saikoro Club. Might be a fun way to find out about obscure board game...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

Kanata no Astra was a fun little ride. It was also oddly more complicated than what I was expecting. But it ties up neatly at the end, and that's more than I can say for a lot of anime nowadays.

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

I recently finished Yamato 2202. After of course my second go at 2199 and also checked out the movie. Which I thought would bridge the two seasons together, but was really just an additional story taking place close to the end of 2199. Though it did introduce the Gatlanteans(though albeit inaccurate...

Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition

So I started playing this. It's my second attempt I suppose, but I never finished it that one time I tried quite some years ago. I don't really remember shit, and I kinda got lost, stuck and sidetracked and never finished it. After searching for some internet advice, my starting build had 18 WIS, 16...

Re: Idolmaster

I think there's a major issue with Cinderella Girls crossing over with the rest of im@s. But this is just my speculation and analysis. The thing about Cinderella Girls is that it is co-developed by Bandai Namco AND Cygames. And I hear Cygames does most of the heavy lifting really and Bamco is mostly...

Rewatched Soukyuu no Fafner. I was hankering for some mecha and absolutely did not remember what it was about, so I revisited it so I could watch the Heaven and Earth Movie and Exodus as well. Now that I'm done with it all, I feel horrible just from how much of a trauma conga line the entire show is...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

Fire Force is looking quite nice. Lord El-Melloi will either be good or really pretentiously cringey. I think I will enjoy Cop Craft. Sounan desu ka is kinda amusing but the character designs are so reminiscent of some hentai I've watched before... Symphogear XV is the only reason I haven't flung my...

Spy X Family is probably like my favourite manga now. And you can read it for free, legally on Shueisha's Manga Plus website. I dropped Fairy Gone at some point, decided to binge the rest of it and my life was not at all enriched by the experience. I also dropped Bocchi at some point. Maybe I'll wat...

Re: Anime Toys 2019

Prize figures tend to be el cheapo, but their price is proportional to their quality. They typically don't compare to proper stuff and might as well be molten wax in the face of high end brands like Alter. There is a nice variety though, I actually like the concept of a number of them, like the Taka...

OPM was never really my thing but I noticed a lot of discussion on how the next season would be poo after it was revealed that JC Staff would be doing it instead of Madhouse. I did some backlogging.

I find it so hard to think of a year as a year. Since I mostly think of seasons and barely remember seasons beyond the previous one. I thought S;G0 was utter arse though and wish I never gave it the time of day. Yuru Camp was definitely the bee's knees. Didn't actually like DarliFranxx that much but...

Re: Whatcha watchin' / readin' Q1 2019

Kakegurui XX - More funny faces. Asuka - I kinda like the premise but it feels so early 2000s low budget pulp. Endro - I started it because of an amusing photoshop which redid some of the lines to be about MtG. But the show itself is a bit nyeh. Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai - I kinda like the premise ...

Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara - Yeah well, it's pretty but kinda lacking any hook at the moment. Just gonna roll with it with expectations in check.

JoJo Golden Wind - Well it's more JoJo and I shall gladly partake.

Thunderbolt Fantasy S2 - This is all I need to call this season good.

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2018

My experience with josei stuff is that they do enjoy their more 'forbidden/taboo' relationships. Though Usagi Drop went out its way to do this convoluted explanation on how they ultimately weren't blood related. Which makes Daikichi's grandpa even more of an oddball. I wouldn't have minded nearly as...
