Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q4 2018

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...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2018

Basically why I didn't buy all the volumes of Usagi Drop. I was actually reading it by the volume purchased, but then I decided to read ahead online after hearing a bit of a shitstorm about the conclusion. How the second half turned out is kinda....

Monster Hunter World

Anybody in on this? I was never into the MH franchise due to just not owning the relevant platforms. The little I played on a friend's PSP kinda turned me off a bit due to the single stick and lack of buttons resulting in awkward controls. But I have played God Eater Resurrection/2 Rageburst and Tou...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2018

Haven't been able to keep up with some shows. I've kinda just completely lost interest in Planet With and Banana Fish after 2 episodes. Can't even muster the effort to leave Free! on. I think all I'm watching is Chio, Asobi, Hataraku Saibou and Yama. Well I am watching S;G0 but I kinda forget that I...

Re: Anime vs Drama

I'm overall not that big on Japanese acting, it just seems exaggerated and kinda fake. But then my experience with that is mostly tokusatsu. The only J-dramas I've watched are Bartender and Densha Otoko. I've watched a few random movies on planes and stuff that I largely I don't remember. So I might...

Planet With - I'm kinda okay with it but at the same time not exactly impressed. Was kinda falling asleep at the end of the first episode but I was kinda tired after coming back from a wedding. Satsuriku no Tenshi - Hahaha no. Asobi Asobase - I thought this was going to just be some typical unremark...

Re: Pokemon

I haven't played a Pokemon since BW2. I quite enjoyed Ultra Sun. The Totem Pokemon challenges put a twist on the usual gym leaders and I found those entertaining. I actually found them challenging at first. The Island Kahunas though were kinda more of the usual. After a certain point in the game tho...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2018

Can't say I'm all too impressed by next season's lineup. Yama no Susume 3 - Glad to see this back. Grand Blue - Checking it out based on the fact I liked the manga. Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger - Sounds way too chuu2 but it's a PA Works original so I'll give it a look at least. Free! Dive to the Future...

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...

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...

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...

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

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