  1. Spring Anime of 2018

    Other than Amanchu!, this season is looking incredibly weak. There's barely anything I want to watch, and the things I do plan on watching aren't ones I'm all that excited for and am just picking them up because I lowered my standards to try watching more anime.

    Slow Start continues being the best anime of the season week after week and it's score on MAL is criminal. Tama is life.

    Ah, so you've succumbed to the comfy too.

    I don't really think it's her teasing that's the problem, but it's just that the show drags each moment she teases him on forever to the point that it's annoying on a "Get on with it" level. And when every single scenario of the show plays out like this, it's a recipe for disaster.

    Youngsters and Yuri are both pure. By your name I expected you to understand this better than anyone else. Yuri shows are meant to be masturbated to. Tainting the innocent and pure lesbian lovers with your own lewd thoughts is what all men of culture strive to do.

    Yuri itself is pure and wholesome by nature. Seeing an ounce of non yuri kills all that wholesomeness.

    But it ruins the pure and wholesome yuri image I had of it going in. If it's not pure yuri, then I don't have any intention of dealing with this show's brand of bullshit.

    Here's my very brief thoughts on everything I've watched at least a little of. Mitsuboshi Colors - Great source material with a decent adaptation that is sadly let down by poor production values. Violet Evergarden - Great first episode with very average second and third ones. A Place Further Than The Universe - Amazing. Great characters, nice direction, spot on comedy, all tied together by a well delivered central theme. Slow Start - Anime of The Season. Hakumei to Mikochi - Okay. Sometimes boring, other times relaxing. Yuru Camp - Cozy as all hell Death March - Hate it. Nothing interesting at all. Isekai Smartphone was better. After The Rain - Has it's hiccups here and there, but it's shaping up nicely. Ryuuou no Oshigoto - Proud pleasure of the season. Beatless - Couldn't make it past the first episode. Citrus - Saw a non yuri kiss and noped out of there. Junji Ito Collection - Second episode was creepy, but it's very clear that Junji Ito is just a bad writer. Takagi-san - It's worth watching for one episode. Loses all it's steam after that Pop Team Epic - Absolute shit. Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san - Eh Toji no Miko - Crap

    Here's what I'm watching next season. Quite excited for some of them, but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of them are crap. This has pretty much been the case for the last 3 seasons.

    Mitsuboshi Colors is going to win the hearts of the anime community and nothing you people do can stop it
  11. Santa Hats for your Uncultured Avatars

    Thanks. I just wanted to see how you'd do it, especially since it's a reflection, but you did good.

    I want to see my avatar in Santa Hat 4.
  13. Does anyone here watch (modern) anime English dubs?

    I try to avoid it, but sometimes I do. If it's something that seems like it'd be better dubbed like Kekkai Sensen, I'd watch it dubbed, but otherwise it's subbed all the way for me. Subs are almost guaranteed quality and are available sooner. It's also closer to how the original script and intentions behind the anime were. Dubs tend to try to stay close to the original script, but they can never be as exact as the subbed release.

    Here's my thoughts on everything I'm watching. Shoujo Shuumatsu - Unlike Ittaku, I have the exact opposite problem with this show. Shoujo Shuumatsu is not boring enough. This is mainly due to my comparing it to the manga, but it feels like they're trying to give so much more energy and pep to a manga, which is is a lot more subdued in it's approach. It's the same exact story, but there's so many changes to the tone of it that it loses the spirit of the original. This also means that the the manga and the anime are constantly clashing. We have a story that relies on it's more casual and reflective nature going against a direction that is trying to make it something it isn't. The art is also a lot worse than the manga. It's more detailed and colored, but the roughness of the manga gave it a wasteland feeling, while the anime has a destroyed city type of thing going on. This makes the strange structures stand out as even more jarring and distracting than the manga. It's still a decent enough show, but it could have been so much more. Anime-Gataris - It's okay. The in depth anime talk is pretty amusing, but past that there's not much interesting going on with the story. Ballroom e Youkoso - I hate this show so much. It's like every single bad sports manga cliche put into a sport that I could not give any less of a shit about. I've been watching it at 2x speed for the past two episodes because of how little I like it. Blend S - the main appeal of it for me was the sadist faces, but the past few episodes have been lacking them, so since then I can only think of it as a very average show. Shobitch - Don't know why I'm still watching this shit. It's not funny at all. Sex jokes and japanese humor don't go together at all. Imouto Sae Ireba Ii - This is actually pretty alright, almost good even. People have only reacted to the amazing opening scene, but past that what you have is a competently written show about people and their passions or lack of passion for what they do. It's sad that it's probably being labeled as an incest show by people despite the complete lack of it. Just Because! - It's good. The interpersonal drama between all the characters is very well handled and it doesn't fall into any of the cliches that most other shows of this genre do. Kekkai Sensen & Beyond - It's very similar to the first season. That isn't bad at all, as it's still a fun show to watch, but there doesn't appear to be an overarching plot this season, which is a big disappointment. Kino's Journey - Not nearly as good as the first season, but it still has some fantastic episodes. They're really hit and miss episodes, but the good episodes have all the great writing of the original series. I just wish that the selection of stories here was better, since it could be just as good as the original if it tried enough. Konohana Kitan - Probably the best show this season. It had a few missteps in the beginning, but it's finally found it's footing as is now consistently on point. It uses it's supernatural world with japanese folklore really well to tell interesting lessons. It also has a fun cast of characters and some really strong yuri ships. Oh, and the characters are fox girls, so that also adds a lot to the show's charm. Children of The Whales - It's okay. The art is fantastic, but nothing past that is all that great. The story as a whole feels messy and rushed. The characters are incredibly basic in their personalities and frequently act out of character. It also pushes it's ideas way too much to the point that it's almost insulting. Love Live! Sunshine!! S2 - It's kind of eh. Never really liked the Aquors girls as characters, so seeing more of them leaves me more annoyed than happy to see them again. I also don't really like any of their music, and I think this season turned up the cheesiness levels too much, even for Love Live! Mahoujin Guruguru - still really liking this show. The half this season isn't as strong as the first half and it has slowed down it's pace, but it's still a really fun show to watch.
  15. If my mom asked me for a movie recommendation, I'd recommend Wolf Children, but that's it. She's clearly not an anime person, and my dad doesn't look like one to appreciate anime either.
