Re: What anime are you watching?

The most recent entry on my watchlist was Hanebado! . I remember that our podcast hosts weren't very fond of the series, but for some reason, I was interested enough to check it out, regardless. The overall experience was somewhat mediocre. No doubt about it, the animation of the badminton scenes wa...

Re: 505) Best Anime of 2019 Deliberations Part 4

I don't have any comments worth mentioning on your deliberations, but I wanted to drop a post to show you that I appreciated them, regardless. Some highly entertaining banter between the two of you :). Now I'm looking forward to the rest of the fall reviews. I've already got quite a list of shows I'...

Re: Me :)

It's actually because I have had so many issues with gropers during middle school-highschool when I was in big crowds. I can't seem to relax and find my self getting exhausted from my own paranoia. That sounds bad :(. Ironically, I've never heard any of my family, friends, or other real-life acquai...

Re: Me :)

Right, I did mention Daimidaler before. Really, though, I'm not trying to hype it up as an amazing anime by any stretch. It's just a silly show full of ecchi humor and an English dub that's quite remarkable in its own way. Alright, next up: You just mentioned in another thread that you don't do part...

Re: What anime are you watching?

I watched the final episode of Assassination Classroom yesterday. It was quite a ride. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Koro-sensei was an entertaining and inspiring character to behold, and class 3-E as a whole quickly grew on me. The show didn't manage to give all of the students a distinct prof...

Re: Time to Crank Up the Drama

When did you switch to English dub over Germen? Well, with anime, there were only 3 series that watched semi-regularly on German TV: DragonBall Z , Case Closed , and Ranma 1/2 . Ranma was the show that eventually propelled me into the anime fandom. Given that only 3 (out of a total of 7) seasons ha...

Re: What Music Do You Listen To?

I liked Eminem when I was in early high school but I feel like my tastes have changed a lot since then. His older music has a nostalgic element that lets me enjoy listening to it occasionally, but his new songs don't really do anything for me. I get that. There are a couple of artists who are like ...

Re: 501) Fall 2019 Anime Season Review Part 2

Opps - I got that totally mixed up. You merely said it had Mari-Okada levels of melodrama. Thanks for correcting me. I'll say that I don't subscribe to Glass Reflection / Arcada's law ("The ending is paramount") as much as many other anime fans do, so I'll see if I can get some enjoyment o...

Re: 501) Fall 2019 Anime Season Review Part 2

I get what you're saying - it might get pretty boring if the anime serves you the same dish several times, only with slightly different seasoning. But I think I'll give the series the benefit of the doubt. At this point, "written by Mari Okada" is a credit I'm ready to take big chances on....

Re: 501) Fall 2019 Anime Season Review Part 2

I heard that Stars Align was pretty high in coming-of-age drama. Since you're dropping Mari Okada's name, I should assume this is right up my alley. Sucks to hear about the abrupt ending, though :/. I guess I'll give it a go regardless and brace myself. I've gotten better at accepting open endings i...
