Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

MAL has a "Must read manga list" promotion going; at first glance, I'm going to pick up two; one is Tongari Boushi no Atelier. I've heard multiple sources rave about it, and the premise sounds interesting, so I'm going to give it a go. However, I thought I had read at least a few chapters of Smoking...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Both genres are fantasy : That's kinda the whole point, don't you think? I believe shonen and shoujo are largely marketed to the intended demographic in a way where the buyers of the manga can self-insert themselves in the story a bit, since the MCs are relatable to a lot of the readers. I think Ri...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Now that I'm caught up on the current season(which is pretty weak, IMO), I started to catch up on some classics. First up was Golden Time. The premise was great, and I liked the characters(Nana the punk rocker was by far my fave), but there were a lot of scenes in this that left me scratching my hea...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Speaking of shonen, I dropped Undead Unluck. The current arc had potential, but the details of the plot just went off the rails in a big way, making it unwatchable.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Now that I think about it, the ML being a bit aggressive and the FL being innocent is a hallmark of shoujo, isn't it? A milquetoast ML is more of a shonen trope......

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

A Sign of Affection is a pretty nicely done shoujo anime. ML is a little too pushy and aggressive, FL is a bit one dimensional(which kinda makes sense given the circumstances), but they have good chemistry together, and the supporting cast isn't a bunch of tropes.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

I rarely get hyped over the first episode of an anime, but holy cow, the first episode of Ninja Kamui was amazing! True, the plot was mostly a well worn one, but the action sequences were extremely well choreographed and fluid!!

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Metallic Rouge looks good, but the story and characters are just so-so. I have a feeling this one will rush to tie up a dozen plot threads in the last couple of eps.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

I became a big fan of Bottom Tier Character Tomozaki when the first season came out a couple of years ago; I even read ahead on the LNs, so when they announced season 2, I was really excited, since at least in the LNs, the material was better. However, the anime has dropped the ball somewhat; for la...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Finally caught up on last season's anime, and the double cour ones into this season. In retrospect, if I didn't watch S Ranked Daughter, Inexperienced Me, and Shield Hero S3 , I wouldn't have missed much. They were just something to watch for the sake of watching, I guess. Magus' Bride S2-2 was pret...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Something a little different this time; instead of anime/manga found, three manga that I decided to drop. Gachiakuta had a unique premise and world and highly stylistic art, which drew me in. However, the story turned into a slog, and it became difficult to keep up with the characters. Kaiju No. 8 s...

The latest MV from Ado(and Lotte) has the animation done by Trigger! I think this is to commemorate Lotte's 60th anniversary.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

I watched the Snow White With the Red Hair anime(there was two seasons) a long time ago; I don't remember most of it, but I do remember it being pretty wholesome(and Shirayuki exclaiming "Zen!!!" a lot, lol). I lost count on how many manga I had to catch up on(at least 20), but I finally did. Hiraya...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2024?

Catching up on the manga first; finished The Summer You Were There. It was good, but not great. Copied a LOT of feels from Your Lie in April, IMO.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2023?

Mitsumi(FL of Skip to Loafer) is one of my favorite characters; her positive attitude is infectious, and I like that her friends have accepted her on her terms. Shima(the ML) has a LOT of issues, and it's going to be awhile(I think) before his issues get sorted out. I'm having knee surgery tomorrow,...

HLS= Honey Lemon Soda. I tend to use acronyms too much, lol!

I did pick up a new manga(to me); Yotsuba to! It's a really cute and funny SOL that's right up my alley. I guess it's still going, even though it started 20 years ago. It's done by the same mangaka that did Azumanga Daioh.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2023?

Ashihara was ill to the point that no manga chapters were published for years, and I wondered if he would ever come back. I was thrilled when he started publishing again, but apparently a monthly schedule was too much, so now it's every other month. Makes it hard to remember what's actually going on...

Found this YT stream of anisongs; looks like it's been going for about a year and a half, They give some titles and artists' names in English, but doesn't say what anime it came from.

Re: Random J-Pop, K-Pop, and other SEA musics.........

I was watching this Premier Two video on YT where Pete was doing a livestream in Nakano. At a bar, he met some Metal guys, and struck up a conversation. One of the guys gave him a pick, and it said Atsushi Yokozeki - "Jet Finger". Checked him out on YT, and he's pretty much a badass. Atsushi Yokozek...

Re: What are you watching/reading 2023?

Dandadan is getting an anime, done by Science Saru! A lot of people online are hesitant about this, but I think the manga and the studio have a good synergy.
