  2. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    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
  3. 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.

  7. 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
  8. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    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.
  10. Oculus Quest + S Release tommorow

    Really? The Vive and Vive Pro is probably the worst value product line at the moment in VR. The only thing it has going for it is upgradability in regards to Lighthouse tracking. In regards to the Valve Index, at £919 and not not having any exclusive games to take advantage of knuckles, using LCD panels despite being close to 1k, with a very limited FOV increase and an increase in refresh rate no one in VR asked for...
  11. Hi

  12. Oculus Quest + S Release tommorow

    No. prob gonna sell my original rift and replace it with vive tech down the line
  13. Anyone buying an Oculus Quest or S tommorow? I'm getting both and returning my CV1 Rift for 399 (thank god for amazon). Quest looks incredible for portable VR. The S looks like an incremental upgrade where I can get rid of my sensors.
  14. Last week
  15. Say something to someone that will never hear it

    I'm not sure if I can forgive what you did to me. Even though it's been eight or so months the night you came home like nothing was wrong, got into bed with me, and dumped me still hurts like it was yesterday and it feels like our entire relationship meant nothing. I was in love with you. I wanted to marry you. I thought you were my forever person. You can't just date someone for a year and a half, make them the happiest that they have ever been, and then tell them one normal night that you're unhappy and that you've been keeping it to yourself and dump them out of nowhere. I'm not just sad that our relationship ended but I feel wronged somehow. I don't understand what happened and I guess I never will. I thought everything I did was exactly what you wanted. We got a house and re-modeled it because that's what you wanted, because you said living with your parents was fueling your anxiety. We bought a dog because you wanted one for the house and now you've left me and him alone in a house that I can't fully erase you from. I did everything that I could to make you the happiest person. You said we had plateaued and idk how that's possible when we had just bought a house and moved in and lived in it for less than six months. You told me you the night you ended it that were unhappy and that you wanted to be alone, which was the first time you had ever implied anything of the sort, but it didn't take you very long to find someone else to date. You said that you needed to work on yourself and that I should probably do the same. I just don't understand you anymore. You told me this was all about you and that I did nothing wrong and that I was a great boyfriend but how can that mean anything if it ended the way you ended it? That implies that even if I put everything I had into a relationship that it won't be enough so why should I try again? I feel permanently damaged. I don't understand how I'm not supposed to carry all of this into my next relationship if I ever have one again. I know that I'm going to be anxious and over-cautious about the next person that I date that they aren't doing the same thing. And you are the one person I want to talk to about all of this because despite hurting me, I still feel fondly about you. You were my best friend and my favorite human.
  16. The Flash

    prediction: unless flash has a massive revival next season, it's going to be it's last full season like this was arrow's last full season. With stuff like black lightning already doing well, and batwoman coming in, there's no real reason to keep it around.

  23. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    THIS SEASON IS SOOOOOOO BAD. Finding things to catch up on has been my only salvation (which has made me realize how good 2018 was a whole).
  24. The Flash

    Gemstone Mine - The Harbinger of Death - Float = scum Agreed.
  25. The Flash

    just cast gustin as the new movie flash
  26. The Flash

    might be time to mercy kill flash along with arrow. It's like they were in a dick measuring contest of who could have the worst season, except flash didn't realize that arrow always wins that fight. even legends has been pretty sub-par for a lot of this season, i appreciate them taking a chance on the joke characters being relevant but it's time to end that experiment and bring in some real characters. supergirl has been fantastic though, easily it's best season and the best of the 4. Lockwood is a fantastic character all around imo and really sells the season.
