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...

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.

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...

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.

Re: What are you watching/reading 2023?

Cane across a very obscure 1994 movie called Raiyantsuuri no Uta. The story is simple, the pacing is laid back, the animation is fine for the era. However, the subject matter and theme is what's most interesting, as it depicted Japanese atrocities during WW2, and the Japanese indifference to those a...
