Well, that might or might not turn into a problem for me - as it stands, shows following the typical shounen (action/adventure) structure are among my least favorite kinds of animes.Scribblenog wrote:First off I'll recommend DxD. It's plot is very typical of a shounen bad guy of the week.
Well, can't say I'm thrilled, but I got through it okay with Monster Musume. I should be able to bear it if the show as a whole intrigues me.Scribblenog wrote:massive mammories are an ever present feature baring a couple of loli exceptions.
Now, that sounds better . I will consider it, but there are no concrete plans yet.Scribblenog wrote:That aside, there are some good elements of romance involved.
Don't worry, no misunderstandings here . I'm perfectly aware of the style (or lack thereof, as some people would undoubtedly put it) KissxSis is shooting for. I figure it'd be a nice anime to throw on when I don't want to think, just have a good laugh and feel a little tingly .Scribblenog wrote:While the former explores a forbidden sibling relationship, and thoughtfully explores the impact of it and the later details a number of highly sexualized, but moderately "real-ish" relationships (including the incest arc), Kissxsis is just comedy smut.
Huh... To be honest, I had completely forgotten about the blade arms in her (true) in-game form. I overall liked the series a little better than Sword Art Online (which it is often compared to), mainly because it spends more time on real-world contact and relationship building of the characters. But Haru - whom, unfortunately, many anime fans cannot stand because he is small and fat - left a lasting impression on me through his personality and development.Scribblenog wrote:I can't speak much to the character in Accel World. I don't think I finished that one. All I can recall was that the black-haired girl had a complex about her blade-arms.
It's neither of those, actually - rather, it's my general dislike of action-heavy shows, a category which I would assume High School of the Dead to belong to. I do know about the infamous matrix boobs, however, I'm not sure whether that's a good (pretty hilarious) or a bad (I believe they're a little oversized) thing to me.Scribblenog wrote:High School of the Dead isn't a bad show either when I think about it. Is it a lack of interest in anime zombies that makes you pause or is it the zombies plus blatant fan service?
That actually leads me nicely into another question: What's your general stance of action in anime? Personally, I tend to steer clear of it when possible. A couple of months ago, I jumped over my shadow and watched Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - a favorite of many, yet I was frankly bored throughout most of its run. I just can't find much appeal in flashy action/battle sequences. My favorite scene of the series was one around the halfway point that played in the aftermath of a battle and hit me straight in the feels.
On the other hand, if I'm drawn into the show by other factors, action scenes can become meaningful to me. An example of that would be A Certain Scientific Railgun, where I simply loved Mikoto and Kuroko going all-out in the finales of both the 1st and the 2nd season. But that's mainly because these characters had already grown so dear to me through other means that I was genuinely rooting for them; unfortunately, I can't say the same thing about FMA and most similar shows that I've seen.
