kenzo wrote:As for hating/not hating on Studio DEEN... I didn't red-list any show for being DEEN iirc. It's just something that gives me pause. The other show however that "I didn't hate on for being DEEN" - watch this season's Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. It's by DEEN. And if the rest of this show is reflective of this first episode, we might have an AOTY on our hands. I don't want to potentially oversell it by lavishing too much praise because that tends to get ppl irrationally upset and turned off of a show. But that first episode was riveting and enthralling in ways that's rare in anime. This is the one, single show I want people to watch this season. If I could, I'd make everyone. I'd trade hostages or buy u dota hats or whatever. I just want ppl to talk to about this because it's so gud.
Did you actually watch the first episode? I can't really tell based on what you wrote here. If you did and didn't like the first episode, then that's really all I can ask of you and we just have different tastes. If you didn't watch it, then I dunno man, it kinda sounds to me like you're inventing excuses to hate it before you watch it.dakazu wrote:This show's problem is that it's Rakugo and Rakugo is boring and unfunny. It's not funny, like, at all. They have some good voice actors on this show but they're wasted because they're doing Rakugo.
BTW- It's INCREDIBLY unbelievable that the main character would be allowed to perform on stage in episode 1 because Rakugoka have super strict rules about moving up ranks and studying and working as underlings for senior members. You shouldn't even be allowed to perform unless you earn your stage name.
You listed four shows that I didn't like/don't care for. Meanwhile other shows of theirs like Hanasaku Iroha, Tari Tari, Glasslip, Charlotte, and this season's Haruchika are all KyoAni shows with the serial numbers filed off. If you like the studio, good for you, but I've found through my own experience that by and large they make shows that I don't like. I obviously wouldn't blindly turn down anything made by them, because if I did, I wouldn't have watched the Eccentric Family (which was easily a top3; maybe best show of 2013) but knowing something is made by them sends up huge red flags that usually get validated.Konanda wrote:I mean shows like Cannan, Another, Red Data Girl and Angel Beats aren't really like KyoAni and that's about 1/3rd of the shows they've produced.
Nobody ever counts 'partial credits' for a studio. That just means they got some shitty and/or small part of production outsourced to some of their freelancers, while having zero input on the creative or managerial side of things where it matters.Konanda wrote:Or are you including stuff that PA Works has partial credits on like Darker Than Black, Mushishi or Eureka Seven.
Agree about IBO. Disagree about Gundam in general, but agree if you apply it generally to AU Gundams. Agree about TV in general. Disagree about the implications that has on anime. The two best shows of this season you refuse to watch b/c you read the comics already.dakazu wrote:Blood orphans has been real bad but what should I have expected from a Gundam show?
TV in general is kinda shit on all fronts right now
I'm curious which one you read? If I'm reading things right, he made an original Tetsuwan Birdy comic, and then a remake comic like a decade later?dakazu wrote:Tetsuwan Birdy was Masami Yuki's take on Green Lantern Corps and it got WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too political(like most of his manga).
PSO2 started out as a guilty pleasure, and I've grown to legitimately like it. It's generic as fuck, and the story is stupid. But the way its tying into the game is neat, and it's a better 'game adaption' than the vast majority of those out there. Characters are a lot of fun too, even if they're rather cliched. I think liking Phantasy Star helps the enjoyment a lot. If this show was for Elder Scrolls Online I would have probably quit it weeks ago. Also, PREZ IS A CUTE.Jenn04 wrote:Marathoned PSO2: The Animation tonight from episodes 2 to 9, so I'm all caught up. Thanks kenzo for watching the last few at the same time and writing hilarious posts in Discord! Man, Itsuki's such a knob. I just want my PSO2 character to punch him in the mouth. I love this show though - and all the characters - even though it's goofy and dumb. Then again, through thick and thin (looking at you, Universe), I've always loved Phantasy Star.
I think a younger me, who was obsessed with 'Serious Gundam' like Zeta, CCA, and 0083 would have preferred the back-end of ZZ. But the older me has enjoyed the more lighthearted pace of the first half. It really feels like a good trial run for G, Turn-A, and G-Reco, and I think I lean more towards those now. As for you at episode 28CrossXhunteR wrote:I hear it's a good show. I'll probably end up watching it when it's finished and I complete ZZ.
28 episodes of ZZ down. I like the show much more now than the early bits of it.
