Anime - the emotional rolercoaster.


Recommended Posts

They're not trying to save the world. They're fighting for survival in a world where human's are forced into extinction. 

 

Anyway. Give the first episode a try. If its not up to your taste, then so be it. But the show's popular for a reason because its not the typical shounen anime found elsewhere.

I just can't shake the irrational fear that if I start watching anime I will inevitably wind up on 4chan.

Cathing up a bit:

Bakemonogatari is awesome. Is Nisemonogatari any good? I've only heard about the toothbrush scene.

Attack on Titan I really like, at least the manga. The protagonists are young because they are fresh recruits into the military, and the writer makes good use of slowly unveiling how the world works through their experiences.

 

In fact most of the raw meat gets massacred quickly.

The protagonists aren't some mecha-wielding thrump cards, despite appearances. They are part of a woefully ineffective military trying to catch up to the giants.

 

Who aren't actually all retarded, only the base grunts, and even they are nigh indestructible. Kinda easy to win a war that way.

 

 

Anyway, random AMVs:

It has a LOT more fanservice. It's plot is overall weaker.

 

Bakemonogatari is definately better, but Nisemonogatari still has it's funny moments. The Toothbrush scene living in infamy forver. But there's more.

My right eyebrow went so high up my forehead that I may need to pull it back down with a block and tackle.

 

What the _****_ have I just seen? Why would you want to watch that show? Throne of Terra! Why do I never have a targeting link to a gothic class battleship when I need one?

@ Walsingham

- because it's still fun despite the redicolous amount of fanservice. It's so wrong that it's at times right.

But if that offends you, you better stick with Bakemonogatari, as it doesn't have nearly as much fanservice.

 

Here, another memorable scene

Just finished watching Mushihi.

It's a strange and surreal anime. Kinda sad and disturbing (in a horror kind of way) at times.

Been a long time since I watched anime, I have some personal favorites like:
- Monster
- Master Keaton
- Cowboy Bebop

I tried to watch the recent ones and boy they are painful to watch, because:
- High pitched moonspeak chatters from female characters, especially moe characters, boy I hate them.
- Overused scenes like female characters denying their love to the protagonist while abusing them physically ("What did you hit me fooooor?!")
- Over-the-top gestures and voice acting, I mean, they speak in shouting voice all the time, it's weird.
- Weird and usually contrived world-building. I was forced to see this anime about cat-like creature turning school girls into magical girl to reverse entropy in the universe with magical contracts.
- Too much exposition chat before fighting in action animes.

That being said, I still tolerate some of recent animes like:
- Full Metal Alchemist, I don't like Ed since he's kinda loud, but the story and world is pretty cool.
- Bunny and Tiger, I dig the deconstruction of American superheroes. I especially like the sponsor logos stamped on the armors, an example of unintrusive-yet-blatant advertising because those logos fit the capitalistic world.
- Ixion Saga DT, a random anime I picked up, a total deconstruction of JRPGs. I hate the main character, but the humor is very low brow and shameless (it has forced vasectomy, erectile dysfunction, transsexual stubble, hopeless man-virgin, sexual debt, and psychotic pedophile manchild D:) , which, translates to fun on lonely nights.

On the other hand, it sounds like a run-off-the-mill hentai RPG.

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.
