So, I just finished off the series Viper's Creed. It's a mecha series focused on a group of mercenaries who are tasked with protecting the floating city, Fort Diversity, from left-over automaton weapons that are still active after WWIII has come to a close. Where they combat these mindless drones is across the highways that connect the city together because the water is too polluted for any vessels to traverse. However, this is just the setup for the series, as the anime has two "main stories" across its 12 episodes. The first half is about each of the individual members of the team and their backstories with each episode giving a specific character attention. The second half of the series is where things takes a twist as a radical group of nationalists plot a coup with the city's police make the mercenaries the "Bad guys", take control of the city, and drive out all foreign presence. Despite how potentially complex that may sound, the series is actually quite simple in it's storytelling and is focused more on entertaining the audience. That's not saying that the series "wastes" it's potential. Everything moves along pretty straight forward with some predictable moves and a easily established mindset as to who the characters are, and the story it wants to tell.

Overall, I'd recommend watching the series.

Just finished Speed Grapher. It's about a war photographer who gains the power to cause explosions at whatever he focuses his lens on when he takes pictures after kissing a girl who was born with a virus that mutates his own DNA upon fluid contact. The girl is then kidnapped several times and you get to meet her family and the degenerates who have also been mutated by her while the photographer tries to rescue her and fights aforementioned mutants. As a whole, the show deals with the soulless nature of society and how much more we value money than people. The bad guy's motivation was solely revenge which made some of his later actions really unjustified.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend it; it would've been better as 13 episodes but instead they made it 24 with 1 recap episode.

Just finished off Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. Overall, it's alright series, but it didn't really click for me. With the way the series unfolded, it felt like events and characters were far overdramatic, and it lost much of it's sense of flow and tone when the space-time police shows up half-way through.

It's okay, but could have been handled better

Watched Dai Mahou Touge over the weekend. Surprisingly good OVA mahou shoujo parody starring a cute yet hilariously vile, vengeful protagonist who spends more time assaulting her enemies physically than casting spells at them (apparently her magic is allergic to Gundam). Bonus points for not even bothering to keep a masquerade up; she makes sure everyone knows she's a transfer student from Magic Land from the getgo. Also for status quo letting students be repeatedly injured or killed and the school repeatedly destroyed, only for everything to be fine again by the next half-episode.

As an aside, I now know where that oldass (as far as first seeing it posted on imageboads; 2006 feels like a long time ago now) gif of a potato peeling itself is from.

I just finished Gakusen Toshi Asterisk. The show's plot was fairly paint by numbers, but it sets itself apart from other series by having lots of action and properly using character archetypes as a skeleton to flesh out rather than as a mold (wish they had made the MC less generic while they were at it). The quality of the girls in general was much higher than other harems. Usually, there's a single girl that's light years beyond the competition to the point that I can't fathom why the MC would choose any of the others. Asterisk's girls, on the other hand, are good enough that the best girl won by a country mile rather than the distance between any two given galaxies, and I could see why the MC would choose any of them. The result is a show that was entertaining enough even if you can't call it good.

Pics related. Best girl.

I just watched that a couple weeks ago myself. You're right, it's actually pretty good all things considered, and some of the fights were nicely done. Shortstack samurai was great. Team Loli should have won the festa.

I'm a bit biased though because I actually enjoy battle harems. I think they're fun shows and they make normalfags fuck off from anime.

I thought it was dumb. And it didn't need to do much to not be dumb, but it still fell short. They laid out such an expansive world and are taking the most convoluted route to power. I just cant relate to any of the characters at all anymore so it's just a strange show to observe.


 No.25991

I couldn't even finish the first season because all the characters started becoming boring and generic for me in some kind of way.

The one dimensional characters and boring plot lines of each episode drained the fun out of the entire show for me, I was almost able to finish the first season but I lost interest by then and couldnt even bother with the show anymore.

I read a bit of the manga and saw instant improvement compared to the anime I read a few paged of the giant hamster fight, stuff that the anime never bothered to animate, I guess it turns out that it was a low budget shitshow kinda like Golden Kamui.

The Gokicha manga is finished. It is a story about a moe roach who goes to Hokkaido wanting to befriend humans. Unlike her fellow roaches, she is a neat freak.

https://mangadex.org/manga/4770/gokicha

It has a lot of cute and moe, seasoned with bits of sadness, still, the manga has a hopeful tone. Since it is episodic, it is good for rereading random chapters. Also good if you like to bully lolis.

I think the big main weakeness of season 2 was how disconnected Momonga was from the events of the series. It wasn't until the third episodes that they established that he was the "great one" attacking the lizard people. I assumed it was, but it still didn't confirm it until that late. You barely see any of the main character in the entire season. And after his creative plan of, "kill the shit out of the Lizards to subjugate them" the show continues to not loop us in on anything that he has planned or is going on.

I just finished Kaiji season 2. Sure, it wasn't as good as the first, but I still enjoyed it a lot. The issue is that they only had two fucking story arcs. The first one was basically paced like the first season, but the Man-Eating Bog lasted way too long. You could have cut out maybe 4 episodes and still covered all the same amount of content with the dramatic timing needed. The really needed to have at least one more story arc.

Just finished watching Martian Successor Nadesico, and it isn't all that good. It has some stuff that works, but all the series' ideas end up being half-baked in execution. There moments spread throughout about the questions of losing people in war, what they're really fighting for, how wars are purposely manipulated to happen, and people just seeking blood and don't want peace, but all of that is never resolved. At the finale of the series, there are only three things that are wrapped which is the protagonist getting over a past trauma, him finally getting together with his waifu, and some line paraphrased as "It's just a show, don't take it so seriously" (Which sort-of upsets me cause it makes wonder if it's the creators' shitty way of negating not only the series but also the fact that the it ends on a terribly where nothing is resolved and it feels like nothing was actually learned). On top of that, the show has a hard time of deciding if it wants to be an action show, a comedy, a drama, or just waifu-bait. The action scenes are the best parts of it, but it's hard to get invested in any other part when feels like events and reactions are randomly placed about half the time. One episode can end with a character going through a mental breakdown, and then proceed to be joking around at the very start of the next. Also, there's the aspect that all of the main characters', as well as the enemies', motivations are all tied to a TV show, and not in a humorous way like Galaxy Quest. Lastly, to finish it all off, it doesn't feel like any of the characters actually mature, in any way.

Overall, Nadesico feels like a trainwreck, that, once you start watching, you have to see it through all the way to the end just to see how bad it could get. And, at the moment I'm debating if it will be worth it to continue by playing The blank of 3years and watching The Prince of Darkness. If you have interest in watching this, I'd advise that you watching something else. Perhaps something like The Irresponsible Captain Tylor.

I remember buying the dvd set, because SPACESHIPS! MECHS! when i was a wee little lad and liked it, but hated the princess of darkness story, they went full serious business and lets fuck up MC/waifu lives up.

>One episode can end with a character going through a mental breakdown, and then proceed to be joking around at the very start of the next

remember when the main buddy of the MC died and the MC was pretty sad about it, but everyone else was like "eh! to bad i guess", then some faggot from the invading mars fleet died leaving a girl of the crew without a bf and EVERYONE cried for him THE FUCKING TRADEGY! And i think nobody still knows who really killed him and the person that ordered the hit, hell I think they even praises the damn faggot in the movie saying "assassins cant kill him because he just that good"

Didnt play blank of 3 years, but you could just watch the main show and ignore everything else they did after that.

There's also the fact that, when arriving on Mars, they wiped out the entire surviving colony (The very same people the ship was suppose to fucking save because that was the entire point of their mission), and then everyone felt sad for an episode. Then, there was also where the admiral sacrificed his life valiantly to cover for the Nadesico while they escaped, and all Yurika cares about immediately after is why Akito was holding Inez's hand. And, then, the fucker shows up in the last episode, out of nowhere, and it turns out that her survived and has been bumming around Mars for the past year.

It is no exaggeration to say that Ruri, Omoikane, Howmei, and Howmei's crew are the only reason to watch it.

I think you missed the point of the show but it is not your fault. Like many before and since it was meant to parody of giant space robot fighting mecha anime. Being poorly translated and localized does not help since the jokes were localized rather than translated and taken as meaning lighten the mood in a silly show rather than reference a past common trope from the genre that just came up in the show. Knowing that it really becomes even more of a trainwreck translated the way it was. It is such a mess the joke that the cook being the hero and the cool character getting killed right away rather than mid show do not even register.

I'd be willing to understand what you're saying, but the execution of everything else in the show is just such bullshit that the "translation" cannot be the only factor as to why this series isn't any good.

I finally finished Haruhi Suzumiya. It was underwhelming, even the movie. It felt like they were building towards a number of things throughout the series and nothing ever really came of it. It seemed like by the movie Haruhi would come into contact with the Space Entity, the time travelers would go to war with the epsers and Haruhi would find out about her powers use them to either completely alter the world or not change it at all because she's grown to love the world just as it is or something like that, but instead it's just about Yuki wanting to be a normal girl mixed with Back to the Future and that one Twilight Zone episode about the guy who wakes up in a different dimension. And to top it all off, it ends with everything returning to normal, mostly. That's not a bad idea, but it didn't need to be a movie and they certainly didn't need almost three hours full of unnecessary twists and turns to tell that story. It could have been a two part episode in the series. I still liked it, though.

Usagi Drop

Basic plot is: MC's grandad passed away at 80ish years of age. Turns out her had been fooling around with his maid and had an illegitimate child. Oops. MC is single and in his thirties and takes the kid home, at first temporarily, but it soon becomes a more permanent situation as he gets more attached to her and invests himself more into being a parent.

The TRUE plot is about sacrifices of raising a child. Mainly conciliation between work and family life. MC is a single parent, but the supporting cast is full of different kinds of families. Including the girls mother, who abandoned her child to focus on work.

It's s series both heavy and comfortable to watch. And I'll be heading to read the manga right away.

yeah it's a very sweet show in the classical sense (heartwarming)

>>32718

if you think about it, it's really the best outcome possible for both parties. most girls have a longing for a (good) father figure; /ourguy/ was essentially a male cake, didn't have any prospects and having a girl around would likely scare away any women that would show up anyways. also worth noting: written by a woman.

>written by a woman.

A lot of the people who hate it just dropped it somewhere around the first 4 episodes and never gave it a second chance.

Just finished Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu just yesterday. It was pretty good but I get the feeling that some of the story went over my head as its very Japanese. Also finished Sakamoto Desu Ga but was unsatisfied with the ending.

>many hate it

who?

only people who hate sol moeshit hate it, and they do so because it is sol moeshit

but I haven't found an individual who likes the genre that thinks lucky star is bad

might not be their favorite, but far from bad

Just finished off Noir.

It's an okay series, but it feels like the creators were trying to put as much of a "deep" and action-based series together as they could with the lowest budget possible. The premise is that an amnesiac contacts an assassin asking is she would like to go on a "pilgrimage to the past" on order to find out about both of the girl's childhoods and why it is they live the life they live. First two-thirds of the series is one long slog where the writers cannot decide if they want to flesh out the story's unique premise or make Japanese La Femme Nikita, with instances where the story wants to act like it's smart but just results in filler. However, with the final third, it starts gaining a hold of itself and keeping a consistent tone. And, by that time, the story is more about dealing with ancient rituals and prophecies, the girls finding out that they're involved with the Illuminati, and answering questions that the first episode established. As for as the actual quality of the production, you'll be hearing the same three songs repeated in every single episode; and the visuals feel much more like they're establishing shots, keeping the action at much too slow of a pace when it isn't happening off-screen, and leaving too much to the viewers imagination as to how each scene flows together.

As I said, it's an okay series that comes together in the end, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Finished the SAO movie yesterday. I watched it in about 20 minute installments over 3 days since I'm a busy guy just kidding I have a short attention span

The villain's motives were believable as were his henchman's which made it kind of alright; the main fight between kirito and the henchman was kind of dumb because they aren't in full VR - rather they are playing an augmented reality game (like pokemon go for example) and they are wall running and dashing around and strangling people twice their size. If it weren't for the ridiculous powers I might've been able to actually recommend it. There was a lot of singing and idols, most of the boss fights were cgi but some were also hand drawn. Kirito was only sort of insufferable with a bonus of Asuna "two years of semen" bath scene.

Completed Ghost Hound recently. The atmosphere, especially the sound design, was top notch but the plot was really underwhelming and the ending just felt too wrapped up.
