Re: Dragonball helps with my depression

yeah i've heard story over the years about some drastic stuff. but sometimes anime helps pass the time, put a smile on my face, helps me relax after work, helps to cheer me up after a sad thing that happened, etc. i think the little things matters too, and it adds up over the years.

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2018

I'm kinda acclimating to wotakoi's voices somewhat with the second episode. I also felt Sawashiro's voice there is somewhat mismatched and tired, but Kabakura just bothered me way more. It'd be funny if they got Aya Endo to do Koyanagi so that it would match a seiyuu joke later on where she gets in...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2018

Finally got around to Hisomaso and Magical Girl Site this weekend and they were fine. Was expecting more trash for Site but it turned out to be solid otaku pandering material, lol. Maybe that is exactly the kind of trash that works for me. Hisomaso...i should go photoshop a graphic. It's really good...

Still watching Darling in the Franxx . I've lost any ability to create a coherent opinion about it. just don't shitpost artists about it lol Yeah i don't think i can create a cogent opinion about it either, but at least it's entertaining.

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

the animation style during the fights reminds me of heroman a bit, probably because many similar staff and koyama's mechanical designs. also they kind of animate the mecha a bit like people and less like giant moving things. i don't know, i think the animation looks actually really good if purposefu...

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

wow animation isn't very good...i beg to differ on that.

but fair on the other points. i'm at the place where I miss a good "overpowered girl likes sheepish boy" plot, and 02's animal behaviorisms are the vintage bones take i've been missing lol

SideM is good. I also managed to start: Koiame - it is okay I guess, enough humor and serious, a lot of neither. ryuo no oshigoto - good loli anime because you can ignore the shogi part almost. gonna drop yorimoi because don't like some characters I guess. the new emiya menu is out very soon. toshik...

So far this season... Up: Yurucamp - Probably the kind of kirara slice of cute girls doing cute things the world loves. This time it sticks to the namesake. Overlord S2 - the lizards are great, and the cutest. Darlifra, Frankiss, whatever. I love the designs in the show, and it is like an older styl...

Re: Amazon Shuts Down Anime Strike

Based on hearsay, some of the Amazon guys responsible just didn't know what they were doing. At least everyone on Prime can watch the stuff now, which is what the expectation is. Now they just need to not screw up on subs and such!

Re: What are you watching Q4 2017

And just started to watch Knights of Sidonia. Attack on Titan vibes, but I like the hard sci-fi aspect. I hope you'll like the awkward harem romance vibe later on too. Sidonia is a solid, but I never got around to season 2...not sure if I'm really missing much besides fodder for best girl discussio...

Re: Haibane Renmei on demand

Meh on Lain. Maybe I'm just too old for that chuu2byou nonsense now. Well, I probably was already too old when Lain was new. It was neat and interesting but unlike the framing and issues tackled in Haibane Renmei, Lain gets dated.

Re: Honeyworks?

This is way better than Mekaku City Actors. It's generally short and to the point, as long as you know you are not watching it for the plot. Because these are pretty much the most basic archetype plots? Like, that's not a problem if you are in to enjoy ships or cute characters or music. Or in my cas...
