    Yup the journey to the end point made no sense. Every character's IQ darastically dropped this season. Arya "I know a murderer when I see one" after Danny has just burned 1000s of innocent people no shit.

  6. Game of Thrones TV Show

    i actually thought ep 5 was pretty awesome and made a lot of sense but then we have the finale which was absolutely garbage. even the cinematography felt cheap. the camera, the effects, everything felt so awkward like they had no fucking idea what they were doing. the plot itself makes sense, but it could've been told better

    girl who longs for a home finds a home filled with people craving personal connections. sprinkle in some supernatural lore and you got Fruits Basket. I think the characters are pretty interesting and so far it's been progressing along nicely. Would recommend.

  13. yeah lol. the sunday there's a btbam show in town for like ten bucks too i might do instead
  14. Game of Thrones TV Show

    yeah i didnt buy that i'm very angry that HBO asked D&D to make the last two seasons ten episodes and they flat said no That said i don't mind the final episode / where people ended up (except maybe Arya, but she did ask what's west of westeros in S3) - it's more how fast and abrupt it was. And i def liked it more before rewatching some old Dany scenes like her buying the unsullied.
  15. Sky Striker - Deck Discussion

    Haven't been on here in a while. So sad to see these threads aren't as active as what they used to be :/
  16. Game of Thrones TV Show

    I agree but the general defense for that was they were making concessions in realism to set up an epic final season. Sadly that was just wrong.

  18. Oculus Quest + S Release tommorow

    I literally own a rift. I am complaining about my experiences in calendar year 2019 with product that was purchased new in December 2018.
  19. Oculus Quest + S Release tommorow

    rei I’m sorry but you are so misinformed on vr. im very active in regards to vr gaming and probably a lot more experienced than you. A 3 sensor rift cv1 setup is near perfect. The rift s and quest have the best inside out tracking possible at present. I rmemeber talking to you about vr before and you seemed like 2 years out of date on everything you were saying haha.

    Ye from here KnY only picks up. I'm certainly excited for the upcoming weeks. I think we can just agree to disagree on Sarazanmai. haha
  22. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    KnY you're giving credit for something it hasn't done yet. I'm not saying it can't be better. I am saying that what we have seen so far has been far from impressive. The only thing I like about it is we are getting significant plot progression earlier on, but I doubt that will keep up. (inb4 just read the manga bro). Forced drama is just drama for drama's sake i.e. nothing/not enough is happening so lets just jam in some needless drama The girl you mentioned is one example. I'd argue a certain character's home life is also borderline irrelevant. Your Lie in April is an example of organic drama and excellent character development. Almost every event has to deal with Kousei overcoming his mental barriers in some way. It's an unfair comparison. I enjoyed Penguindrum. Sarazanmai is just not my cup of tea. I agree its about making a point and an overarching story with a plot that progresses may not be necessary to get that point across. I personally think that robs it of any staying power because it becomes really hard to be invested in a story like that. I will eventually watch the fruits basket remake, but until then I can't comment.

    nose dive in quality has bween happening for like two seasons tbh

    the tracking on the rift is a fucking embarassment and their personal app is a badly coded trainwreck
  25. Last week
  26. Game of Thrones TV Show

    so sad to see one of the best shows of all time end like this. i can't rank this as the best tv show of all time following the last couple of episodes. This was a HUGE nose dive in quality. the whole night king lore and saga was just shit on. the characters of danny and john and tyrion and everyone were shit on. u know what i cba to even type how shit it was fuck it

    One of my friends i talk anime with told me a month ago that he couldn't wait for new eps of kny and ended up binging the whole manga. I told him that he was dumb for doing that, but he told me that he believed kny would end up being one of the best shounen ever, like fma tier and this was coming from someone who loves shounen manga. I told him he was full of shit and went on my merry way. Flash forward to the completion of ep 5 and I'm a little curious about Tanjirou's first mission, and ask my friend if Nezuko gets any play in the upcoming arc. He gives me this shit eating grin and goes just read the manga bro. I let curiosity get the best of me and say I'll just read the 2 chapters that are gonna be made into ep 6. Then I tell myself just the end of this arc. And then I tell myself just the end of the next arc. Until it was 3 am in the morning and I'd plowed through the entire thing. Kny has some of the best writing for a shounen manga that I've ever read, although I can't say I'm a big fan of the genre. I'm unsure whether Kny will be fma:b tier, but the source is superb and it's fucking Ufotable. Although I'm not holding my breath considering the assload of cgi they're shoving into this series, but god damn if Ufotable can capture Gotouge's writing, I'm convinced this will go down as one of the better shows of its genre. Personally I never really understood "forced drama." Is there a lot of things happening in the show currently yea. I assume you mean the addition of the girl that's trying to break the bonds of the koto club, but I'll give her a few eps. I assume she turns rather quickly, but I think there's no big deal in using this char to give growth to the og chars. Hozuki needs to get drawn into the club more, flesh out of Hozuki/Kudo dynamic, force the president to grow, etc. I accept that this isn't k-on, we don't just get to observe the chars in their clubroom doing shenanigans. I've noticed shows like this and Shigatsu get this criticism a lot, but the author shows us this period within the show for a reason. Showing shigatsu one year before the events of the show would be boring. It's way more interesting to see Kaori be assertive and get what she wants, to see Kousei deal with his mother's death, to see the dynamics btwn Kaori and Tsubaki in their relationship w/ Kousei. Because of the "drama" we get to see the growth of these characters and in a show like this I feel like that's what we want to see anyway. I think Sarazanmai is hitting all the right notes really. It feels much better than previous Ikuhara shows that I've felt have fallen a little flat. It really seems to be going the way of Penguindrum which I think is a great thing. I can definitely understand this one not being everyone's cup of tea. I constantly question how this show is even allowed to air in Japan rn. There are some legitimately uncomfortable scenes and some are even repeated constantly. The show is out of its monster of the week and Ikuhara is driving this show towards his larger point. Whether this be about connections, taboo, our lives in a digital age I think I'm aboard for this ride, but I can definitely understand that because I enjoyed Penguindrum I can give Ikuhara the benefit of the doubt and let him take me where he wants to take me as a viewer. Personally not a big fan of shoujo romance shows, so I can def understand how something like Fruits Basket would be a no go, but I think the show consistently is able to win me over. It really is sort of amazing how much of a character that the mc is given, because in similar shows targeted towards a male audience the mc is an absolute nothing most of the time. I think that is a big part of what is appealing about FB, that the mc is an actual character, and that even the characters that essentially are just part of the harem are allowed to orbit outside of just being the love interest for the mc. As someone who loves shows like Amagami SS, I can also understand that the chars are blatant tropes made to appeal to certain subsets of the male audience with no agency of their own, but the male characters of FB def are their own people. Adding the zodiac legend aspect to this show really aids this I feel, giving these characters things to do that don't revolve around the mc.

    Yaiba I am reserving judgment on because it just heated up (but tbh I don't see this as any different than Dororo). Kono oto's drama is becoming way too forced. Part of what makes this genre good is that the drama seems to develop organically. Sarazanmai - I feel like you are rating this based on what you hope it will do as opposed to what its actually done. Fruits basket - Can't comment on this as I havent seen either variant of it. I think C&T is a class above all of these especially in the storytelling department.
