Topic: Off-topic / Tell me why I'm wrong

Jail is basically a bazaar for drug trades, so I never really get off the drugs.

Never really heard of this as a really prevalent problem, especially recently. Got any sources on this?

He somehow mentions that there will also be death in Psycho Pass 2

Also: Aldnoah 2 confirmed to feature giant mechas.

Soo,I just watched the first episode of Rosario Vampire and I must say it’s pretty good.

If you’re interested in the same thing but more plot focused and with less fan service, you should check out the manga too.

The best girl contest is undergoing its finale. So many best girls have fallen, some were tough to beat, others were easy. But this final one is the toughest of all of them. Every time I voted I always chose these 2….every time I thought what would happen if they went to the final round and it happened.

Holo the Wise Wolf vs…. KURIIIIIIIISTINA

The competition can be found here you can view it without voting.

Is this from that one /r/anime thread?

dude, the music is the best part of what has otherwise been a fairly mediocre series

It’s not so much the music itself as it is the way it’s used that slightly irritates me. I’m probably being a little over-critical here, but lately there’s been this trend in certain anime that use Hiroyuki Sawano’s music. His compositions are notable for their HUGE choruses. You’ve probably heard them before:

KLK DON’T LOSE YOUR WAAAAAAY

SnK [GERMAN]

A/Z I SAY CRYYYY (the fuck does this even mean)

As I mentioned before, they’re not bad songs; the problem is how they’re used: minimal buildup and suddenly a chorus for “MAXIMUM EMOTIONAL IMPACT!!”

It’s just handled awkwardly, and while it admittedly makes for the occasional striking moment, at other times it’s just lame. When used correctly OSTs can greatly enhance the execution of the scene, but this just isn’t a particularly smart or subtle way to do it.

Again, this is kind of a stupid and minor gripe overall, but the music still wasn’t one of A/Z’s strengths imo.

Edit: And it’s actually used rather appropriately in KLK and SnK. Just something that stuck out when watching Aldnoah
Edit 2: and it’s overused

HxH is 148 episodes long, just to let you know. It’s going to take some time.

Hell ya, HxH bumped up to #6 on MAL from #10. I still got about five episodes to watch, so I’ll probably be done with the show within the next few days.

Aww yeah. Not like I especially trust MAL rankings or anything, but it’s great that HxH is getting more attention, because it really deserves it.

Originally posted by InfiniteZest:

so like, aldnoah’s ending was shitty, right?

A/Z itself isn’t that good from what I’ve seen. I dropped it halfway because the whole “monster of the week” thing was seriously getting old and because it’s pretty much like TTGL if TTGL was less cool and took itself more seriously.

Edit: and the music’s really not that good :|

Just finished watching Hunter X Hunter (2011). This anime is absolutely incredible, and possibly the best Shonen series out there imo. The only real problems that I had with it were the “pacing issues” in the Chimera Ant arc and the at times almost intrusive narrator, although these are all more personal preferences. Even so, I’d recommend it even if you’re only remotely in this kind of action-y type stuff. Also, I really respect what it’s doing by waiting for more manga material instead of lowering the overall quality with fillers.

No problem.

Just watched Kill la Kill episode 25. (Special Episode)

Love it.

Same here, even though it was kind of weird. I ended for at like the 17th minute or so, which is pretty weird.

Also KingdomHearst, I am pretty sure you were the one who reviewed The World God Only knows, so how did you find it? I currently watched the tenth episode, so I don’t really have an opinion of it yet.

Nah, I’ve never seen TWGOK before. But I’m pretty sure Indy and Cowfriend (and possibly sssdsds) have.

I have read like the first twenty chapters of the manga, though. Too formulaic for my tastes, though I heard it switches things up later on.

Movies/TV Series with such long and complicated names tend to not be popular. :/

But then again a lot of the longer ones get nicknames, like OreGairu for Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabu Kome wa Machigatteiru or OreImo for Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai.

Spoilers

Zombie, Shinobu, Snail, Snake, Kaiki

That’s pretty interesting, but who’s zombie?

anyway, for me: Crab>Vampire=Cat>Bee>Monkey>Snail>Snake

Kaiki with Monkey’s mom or aunt(although he loves crab he doesn’t understand her)

Isn’t she dead?

Snail sadly is alone. Although I want her to be with arragi, he just goes with hanekawa more.

Isn’t she dead?

;__;

Neither. What I said was an exaggeration, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the dialogues are definitely faster than most anime out there.

Anyways, I finished first season of Silver Spoon. It’s such a well-made deconstruction of the agriculture industry. The themes aren’t fairly obscure, but it does bring out multiple interpretations on multiple issues that are more relevant to the real world. I don’t see that a lot in anime.

The animation is average at best and the characters are mostly cardboard cutouts, but that’s not very important in this particular show since it’s not plot-heavy. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a more realistic and mature SoL.

I read part of the manga a long time ago, and it really is pretty good. For so much anime, SOL somehow translates to “No character development + boring things” which it doesn’t have to be. The pizza scene in particular I felt was great because I actually cared about some of the characters at that part of the story. I should probably pick it up again, but I’ve already forgotten most of the story line.

Topic: Off-topic / Mega Gallade confirmed!

As stated earlier, the fact that the large growth on her face is a similar colour to the green coloured parts of her body implies that is not hair, but an extension of her body.
It was never meant to imply hair.
I would accept that the artists had intended for it to be hair if there weren’t heavy implications that it is indeed not hair.

Yes. You can infer that it’s not hair. But it still looks like hair, and that’s the point. Nobody said Gardevoir is actually a human.

Topic: Off-topic / Mega Gallade confirmed!

And I just said that the only thing human about her is the fact that she can stand on two legs, just like dogs can when they’re begging for a hand out when you’re snacking on some potato chips.

“looks like a human” is different from “having actual human features”. And Gardevoir is humanoid, minus the dress if we’re talking pure body structure. The actual function of its “legs” or “hair” is irrelevant because they were clearly intended to look like legs and hair.

Nintendo really needs to step up its MegaEvo game. M Gallade looks like regular Gallade but with a different color scheme and “accessories”. It’s like they’re getting less and less creative with each new release.

Also, has anyone here seen Psycho Pass? Pretty sure that’s my favourite anime. Even better than Deathnote. Makishima is a beautiful man.

YES. I just watched it a month ago and it blew my mind. Really looking forward to the second season. Also Makishima has the best sense of fashion.
