Re: Anime Fandom Has Changed

To be clear, I more meant NEW series claiming 'Flagship' status. I think a lot of the 'Classic' series keep that status in the fandom, though probably more with older demographics, but for sure people can still go 'Oh guys... EVANGELION. :O'. But I feel like there's no space for NEW series to be ve...

Re: Anime Fandom Has Changed

I got into anime from TV broadcasts. Being in Malaysia, we didn't have many options and as a kid, buying stuff online was definitely not accessible. So dodgy bootleg VCDs or DVDs and when internet got better - fansubs alongside any TV broadcasts was the way to get into the hobby. I try not to let ot...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2018

Well I've finally picked up Juushinki Pandora. For something coming from Kawamori it is pretty bland. His mechs nowadays are also all super samey looking.

Re: Mobile Games?

Well here I am having started Girl's Frontline and now it is dominating my life. Before that I was fairly enamored with Honkai Impact 3rd. It has actual action gameplay and isn't too money grubbing. But there was way too much daily grind that I couldn't ignore and it took too much effort to keep up ...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2018

I think Kaguya is fairly popular. I'm enjoying it. While it mostly makes me laugh, it can catch you off guard and hit you right in the feels every now and then. I do like how the core rivalry has slowly developed as the series progressed.

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2018

I used to read mahou shoujo site, but ended up reading it alongside mahou shoujo of the end and kinda got burned out from the author's style. I can't help but compare it to Attack on Titan since it kinda relies on shock and hooks to keep pulling you along but at the same time - doesn't really go any...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2018

Guess I'll just pasta my thoughts with some alterations. Watching Hinamatsuri - It looks nice and is well animated, but the comedic timing feels somewhat off. It is still fun to watch, but not like laugh out funny. Maybe it is because I've already done the manga but the pace and certain facial expre...

Re: First Thoughts, Spring 2018

Hisone to Masotan - Pleasant surprise. Decided to give it a shot after seeing a regurgitating gif. Hero Academia - More of the same old, a comforting way to end a Sunday. Golden Kamuy - I like the concept but by god it looks so cheap and bad. Those bears jesus. Maybe I should read the manga instead,...

Re: Anime Toys 2018

The figures themselves have increased in price. I'm also from Malaysia and our currency is in a bit of a shit spot. It's kinda a gradual over time thing too, not so much sudden. Though it does feel sudden to me since I haven't been buying figmas recently, though I find myself wanting some now. But j...

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

So, new season. Hinamatsuri - It looks nice and is well animated, but the timing and pacing just feels kinda off. So it ain't quite as hilarious as the manga, and instead feels a more iyashikei sorta laid back. Not sure what to think, gonna keep watching for now. Amanchu Advance! - Nice to see Minor...

Anime Toys 2018

https://i.imgur.com/caUnALv.png Got me this not too long ago. Kinda disappointed - quality is pretty poor for a 12k yen buy(mandarake unopened). Retail price is like 14k? Kinda cheap paintjob that doesn't hold up to close scrutiny. Nasty scuff on the arm, one leg was kinda loose and rattling about....

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

Season's ending. I kept up with everything except for Mitsuboshi Colors and Mahoutsukaii no Yome. Nothing wrong with those shows, but having read the manga just took the fire out of them. They weren't quite good enough for me to want to go for a round 2 and I found myself mostly getting distracted o...

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

To me, the character designs are part of the whole animation package; in Franxx, I simply don't like them, for the most part. I did like the ducks, though.... :) You can paint everything in broad strokes if you wish, but I prefer to be more selective about my terms. I have no qualms with the motion...

Not liking the character designs is not quite the same as the animation being bad.

Yuru Camp - I didn't think comfy levels could be this high but here we are. I've rewatched the first episode a few times. Darling in the FranXX - If someone told me this was made by Bones, I'd believe them. It's not just the Star Driver mechs, there's like a certain feel that makes me think of Capt...

Re: Doki Doki Literature Club

The first ending gave me a laugh. Definitely an interesting piece and it is free and short.

Hard to discuss without spoiling anything however.

Re: Honeyworks?

Are they even connected? I'm pretty sure the only connection is that they are all based off songs done by the Honeyworks band. I've watched the first one and thought it was the blandest piece of shit ever and never really paid the others much heed. The third title should be based off the song "Hatsu...

Re: What are you watching Q4 2017

While the BoC OP was great, I still associate the art with H&C which had YUKI OPs. Feels fitting that she came back for another of Chica's adaptations.

Too bad BoC didn't make a return on Kekkai Sensen.

IM@S Side M - Does the M stand for mid life crisis? I wonder how they are going to share the screentime around. I think there's more characters than 765. One of the Dramatic Stars looks way too much like one of the Free! dudes and I can't stop making the connection. I enjoyed episode 0 a lot but no...

Re: Multiplayer Games

After beating DS3, I did go back to it a while just for PvP dueling. I'd go to designated spots and put down my sign. Getting summoned to a fight club is always fun. I'd also invade random people but be as uninvader like as possible - attempting to communicate solely through gestures and shit. I onc...

Isekai Shokudou's level of food porn is pretty low imo so I'm not too hungry from it. I do enjoy the whole fantasy hicks reactions to tasting our cuisine and flipping balls over what we consider mundane. Makes you appreciate how far food has come since the middle ages. This was a while ago but Koufu...
