What Anime are you watching now?

Recommended Posts

I'm now starting Code Geass because I finished watching Code MENT and I was bored.  Yes, I watched a parody series about Code Geass before I watched Code Geass.

Honestly, I don't see how PurpleEyes could really spoil anything about the show aside from a few points.

Watching and waiting fate unlimited bladeworks every week, and sometimes take a sneak peek at love live! school idol project episodes. Been very busy this month so I can't watch a lot of anime like I usually do.

I know that Suzaku hates Madonna and loves soup.  I might as well just stop watching CG now, since the main plot points are already laid bare :P

Finished AnoHana in one sitting.

 

Sure, the setting was kind of good. I don't get why people always recommend it so much though. That last scene pierces through the viewers strongly, yeah. But I feel like it was kind of overrated. Heck, I would recommend a lot more other stuff besides AnoHana. It was kinda feelsy, but it wasn't its strong point, imo. I feel like the thing I enjoyed the most in that show was the issues revolving around those five characters, and how they adapted to it as time passed. But it was nice, I guess.

 

Also, I still think that Anaru was the best part of the show.

It's weird. It sounds like you liked the same things I liked about it, but got an order of magnitude less appreciation out of those same things. If I ever want to cry, I just turn this on and wait for 0:54:

 

Feels are about as subjective as it gets, I suppose. Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it as much as I did.

This is exactly how I feel. Last moments packed a punch but everything else is not that amazing. Not bad but not "dear lord this is the best animu". I still liked the show in the end but i can think of many other better shows and AnoHana didn't even make me shed a tear.

Anaru best grill.

Because you finished it in one sitting / fell victim to the typical overhyped 'it wasn't THAT good' trend   :makina:

I did too and i love this type of feelsy stuff. I cried from Love Live more than I did with this.

Just look back on it, are there that many amazing scenes in AnoHana? Certainly the characters evolving is nice, but there's not really that many interesting things going on besides that, it's just a story about a group of friends coping with death and grieving. Certainly it does a better job at it than most, but overall it's not really THAT amazing. It's good but not 10/10 good.

I feel like it's over glorified.

I actually forever stalled it on Ep 2 for unknown reasons :sachi:

I think a lot of it has to do with how predictable the whole show is.

The ending didn't surprise me at all. It was sad, sure, but could have been spotted from miles away. And the formula of "all friends blamed themselves" is also really overused and not particularly inspiring.

So while the anime did use the tropes to its best abilities and succeeded for the most part, anyone that's seen enough anime will probably not find AnoHana to be the most amazing thing eve as anyone with a brain can probably predict how the events will unfold from the get go.

Just watched K: Missing Kings.

 

I liked it a lot. It was as good as the anime and I for one did like the anime. 

The animation was gold, it was pretty refreshing to see some Unlimited Budgets for something other than Ufotable.

 

The movie sets up perfectly for what would be the final arc. Can't wait for the next season.

I just picked something at random from my anime collection to go with my dinner and ended up with Sakamichi no Apollon. And oh damn it is good, it's been a while since I had such fun watching something.

 

The characters are great, the drama is simple but enjoyable and the music is just amazing. I almost wanted to close my eyes and go with groove.

I mean, just listen to this...

I enjoyed it, no worries. The OP and ED are great, but it didn't exceed my expectations. It was a cute story, nonetheless, and I have no regrets watching it. I just wanted to shout at Menma to eat something while they were all together though, since they were bashing Jintan. Don't get me wrong though. While the ending was, indeed, predictable, I still think it was a very powerful scene. Only that it was more of sweet than feelsy for me. I still shed some tears though.

This probably ain't the reason, since I watched Jojo in one sitting and I was 'dear God this must be the manliest show on Earth' and I really liked it. You get my point. Now, watch Jojo as well.

My case doesn't seem to be with predictability. More like I had a problem with that scene in the temple near the end. I thought that things went too fast that it actually ended on Episode 11, right after that very scene. I would've liked it if they fleshed out those motives of theirs a little more, just to see how deep the scars really run in them.

 

Anyway, moving on.

 

I recently started Denpa Onna to Seishun no Otoko, or whatever the title is. I've been thinking that Erio is one of the cutest girls I've ever seen in the time I've been living, and I am not disappointed. The first episode left me wondering what the heck's happening. Not 'till Episode 3 do I start liking the show. It feels as if it just started on that episode, really.

 

I like what Makoto did with Erio. Snapping her out of her delusional alien theory regarding her loss of memory was a really nice thing to do. The scene where Erio introduces herself once again to Makoto was something that was really beautiful. Like, really. It's a beautiful scene. I cannot explain why, but it's simply beautiful. I love that scene. Anyway, I'm still in Episode 5, so opinions about the show may change. But for now, I'm loving the concept of the story. The only thing I'm wondering right now is what happened in those six months that Erio disappeared? Were the aliens really fake?

 

I like the OP and ED of this one too.

Since I have started watching anime there's been quite a few animes that ive had a hard time finishing, I have even dropped some. But than the one comes up, over and over again, it always does, and it makes it all worth it, your life worth it, everything worth it. The one for me at the moment is Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso, aka Your Lie in April. I had heard it was good but god i'm enjoying it.

Anyone here besides me that is getting irritated with how Code Geass: Akito the Exiled takes a long to come out? I don't know the reason tbh but.. Come on. I myself think that it has a good all around development.

Man this was one show I couldn't enjoy.

The pacing was meh, the events weren't all that interesting and it was just overall bland.

I think Erio is freaking adorable, but the show as a whole left me yawning, which is a shame because I really wanted to enjoy it.

I might pick it up again now that I'm more of a Shaft fanboy than I was when I first saw it.

Let's see how it'll go for me.

I haven't watched the whole thing, so opinions may change by the end of my watching.

It may not though, since my tolerance is pretty high.

I almost forgot about this, actually. I waited quite a while for K: Missing Kings, so I'm not really bothered by how long stuff takes to get subbed nowadays.
