Anime Club - Heaven Society

I said to watch it right after i forgot about the first few but brother hood is my favorite of all time. Brotherhood follows the manga since was slower than the anime and they released brotherhood to follow the manga. I think it is a much better story.

Nah. Less experienced viewers consider it amazing, because it's full of Shaft-isms, children in dramatic situations, and the kind of faux-depth that most viewers like. Just don't fall for all the hype about it, and you'll be fine. It's not bad, it's just a bit weird, with stuff that evokes Pink Floyd's The Wall, and those fat-faced anime characters that not everyone likes. Don't expect to like the movies if you like the series, and vice-versa - most people who enjoy one a lot dislike the other, for some reason.

 

I had fun with that one, just because I saw the 3rd movie before anything else and was like "what the fuck is happening anymore?".

 

@IAmLamp, its been a while since I've seen it, but it was entertaining. Nothing awful about it or anything, the only problem people really seem to have with it really is just the hype behind it.

 

speaking of the hype behind it, at an anime convention I went to (more like my sister dragged me to), I went to a panel about madoka. the dude who ran it is pretty much the reason I don't like a lot of over analyzers. he was going on and on and on about this irrelevant stuff and about how its so deep and then ended up at nihilism or something. Bitch, its just an anime. fuck off.

Old shit no one cares about but me.

This. People just wouldn't shut up about how original, creative and thought-provoking it is when it's really not; it's just a decent repackaging of classic junk into a fairly solid popcorn anime. The way some people talk about the thing made me feel sad. It was like listening to people who had never sought anything stimulating in their preferred medium of entertainment before. Basically the same thing as with those people who saw the Matrix and thought it was deep.

I'm not smart enough to really identify when something is deep or not. I only know when something is shit or not ('s why my best rating for something is typically "alright"). But I also know when someone is talking complete shit.

Well yeah, you don't need to be "smart" to know when your inner bullshit detector is going off, do you?

 

That's one of the clearest signs to me whether a show is actually trying to entertain you, or is just trying to distract you enough to let you entertain yourself. If the show knows its limits and tries to not set off your BS detector, or at least revels in the BS for the sake of entertaining you, then I'm a lot kinder to it. When my BS detector is going off and it feels unearned (or worse: like I'm being asked to make my own entertainment) then I get harsh.

I think I've told you this before, but you are extremely pretentious, you know that right?

 

"Less experienced viewers consider it amazing".

"faux-depth"

Dial it down dude. You sound like a 14 year old trying to judge modern art. It's making me cringe.

I assume that was directed at me.

I am not arguing over anime. I am telling someone who calls others "less experienced" for liking something to turn it down a notch.

He likes to talk about "faux depth" and "try-hard", but his posts seems as shallow and try-hard as the shows he criticize.

Really? How so? I just don't want to waste my time. 

Iirc, the change is after episode 6/7, and after that they are worlds apart, both are worth watching but Brotherhood is better. Isn't even ep. 1 different where they chase that guy who escaped prison or something?

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

The word you're looking for is more along the lines of "asshole", not "pretentious". Yes, I am an asshole. No, I'm not doing this because I'm trying to impress anyone with my pointless opinions about our silly cartoons.

Frankly my posts *should* annoy you if you want a more detailed analysis or full-blown review or something, because they're only intended to be my basic impressions. They're far too short for anything more than a shallow criticism. But if people want something more rigorous, I'm open to it.

Just saw that they are going to make another season of New Game. I rarely enjoy these kinds of anime, but i really enjoyed it. Anybody else enjoy this series. I know i really enjoyed it because it came out the same time i started my first full time job in tech.

Yea tell me about it... watxhin youtube hear a zzzpoof... screen goes black, look down and small fire in case... 

Anyway after about 12 hours of trouble shooting and another 5 rebuilding i got a gimped pc up and running. The fire only killed 1 of my 980tis not both and the mobo. Had another x99 mobo layin around that i was tryin to sell and thank god it didnt. Had to take all waterblocks off gpus and such. Runnin on air cooled and such. Kinda sad tho. Lost some decently expensive hardware.

 

Also havent comfirmed ram. Seems to work but havent memtested. Git some random crashing at first but may have been due to curropted bios on other mobo

So I watched Akame ga Kill and it was shit. 

What didn't you like about it? After watching it, it felt somewhat generic to me, knew what was coming without much thinking but, I personally somewhat enjoyed it, if just for the entertainment factor. Not like there was anything better to watch(hard to find new stuff after having seen nearly 600 different anime).

Overall it wasn't great(like Erased/Hyouka, etc..), but certainly better than "shit".

"Shit" to me is something like Soul Link.

Well for starters, dumb shit like Susanoo's "house keeping abilities". 

 

Like..... It just felt so poorly made and like a bunch of childish pointless garbage. Like there was so much potential to bring something better, but that's what happened instead. 

 

One thing in particular is, what's her face? Akame? When she says "eliminate" or whatever right before they kill someone drove me fucking nuts. It was enough to just turn it off all together. 

 

Is there something that you could recommend that would be better? I really regret wasting time on it.
