Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

The varied response to Scum's Wish has got me interested in giving it a try. Does the anime actually have an ending or is it one of those ongoing series? My life is so busy at the moment that when it comes to anime - short of Little Witch Academia which continues to be an absolute pleasure - I'll o...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Anyone else watching Kuzu no Honkai ? I've never really gotten into "shoujo" stuff before (I guess Ikuhara's stuff is kind of derived from that general aesthetic), but Kuzo no Honkai is something else. The direction is really pleasant, and the characters are fascinating and horrifying beca...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Glad to see more Flip Flapper fans on the board. I see a lot of Kunihiko Ikuhara in FLFL too. Can't wait to see what the final episode will look like, hoping that maybe they'll pull something totally crazy out of their ass.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Xavier Wulf destroys anything else having to do with "anime rap." All the Bleach samples in his music work perfectly, to say nothing of the Attack on Titan sample on his song "Psycho-Pass." There are a LOT of anime references and sampling in underground rap today, but Wulf defini...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Dead Leaves is really cringey and does nothing for me. His other three main shows are much, much better.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Watching Flip Flappers . Man, this is the same feeling I got watching Kill la Kill all those years ago. This is a really special show, maybe not too brainy, but they keep a lot of things vague, and somehow this adds to the intrigue of the plot. Compare this to your average anime, where every attack ...

Re: Berserk

The Rosine arc was one of the high points of the manga for me. After that it was a bit more hit-and-miss.

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Funny you posted that. I just worked my way through all of Berserk, starting Saturday night and finishing yesterday. The first 150 chapters or so were perfection, the series goes down from 5/5 to 4/5 for the next 175, but still great

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Inside Mari just dragged on for too long. The best parts were around 30-40 where Mari was "experimenting" and Yori was freaking out and being weirdly possessive . After that, it spiraled down, got too sentimental, and lost momentum. The same thing happened with Aku No Hana in my opinion, ...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Watched Kino's Journey about a week ago. Loved the tone and atmosphere, loved stories in it. It really made me wonder what life would be like as a traveler. The closest thing I would compare it to is Mushishi, but with cheaper animation and a slight misanthropic streak. The director also did Serial ...

Posting to say that Hell Girl totally underwhelmed me. It's basically the same boring premise and stock footage in every episode.

Re: [Convention] Otakon

Anyone going to Otakon this year, be sure to check out the panel on Japanese hardcore (I think it's Saturday, but I'm not sure). My friend Dan McGregor is speaking on it and not only is the man gonna teach you a thing or two about some of the best music ever (and I heard there might be giveaways), h...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Watched the first Kizumonogatari movie. Loved it, no regrets watching it before the other two come out.

I've been thinking about watching Re:Zero. Is it really a good show or have the internet masses just been hyping it up on account of the girls' hairstyles?

The new chapter of Dead Dead Demons Dededededestruction just came out and it is glorious. I feel like this is even better than Oyasumi Punpun now.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

All Monogataris are good. Even Katanagatari.

(Especially Katanagatari.)

But seriously, even the weaker cycles have something to offer to the larger plot that Nisio Isin is weaving with the series.

Re: Official "What should I watch next?" thread

So I haven't really kept up with seasonal anime for about two years now and I was wondering if someone could be a dear and list a few that come highly touted. Or you could just link to THAT BOARD recs I don't really have a preference for genre so don't worry about that. If you haven't caught up wit...

Re: [Music] The Grand Music Discussion Thread [3]

Prurient has put out a lot of stuff, some of it very good. I think Frozen Niagara Falls smokes the rest of his discography. Good thing it came out on Profound Lore instead of on some 3XCS box set on Hospital.
