I'm gonna get back into an anime watching rampage one of these days. Since with all these strikes, I don't see them shipping Heroes 6 any time soon here.

Gotta finish Legend of the Galactic Heroes and Golgo 13. Wanna watch the second season of Kaiji and start City Hunter too.

But I think what's gonna give an anime relapse again, will be the first Berserk movie this january.

Talk to the hand
posted October 21, 2011 07:25 PM
Edited by Keksimaton at 19:27, 21 Oct 2011.

On a whim I decided to check out this anime by the name of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, or "I Don't Have Many Friends" as I'd call it in English.

It's a highschool comedy anime, where the male lead Hasegawa Kodaka transfers to a catholic highschool where he unfortunately is mistaken for a dangerous delinquent and everyone is too afraid of him to get to know him. One day by chance he runs into a classmate of his, Mikazuki Yozora, talking to her imaginary friend in an empty classroom. Turns out that Mikazuki and Hasegawa both are in dire need of friends so they end up forming "The Neighbour's Club" where their ultimate goal is to master the art of making friends. Fanservice included.

Seen only two episodes thus far, but I like it: Both ironically and because I laughed my ass off. The animation doesn't seem bad either as there seems to be a lot of production value. Loneliness propably isn't very fun, but here, through the oddball personalities of the socially secluded main cast and the down to earth regular person male lead, we can laugh and enjoy the comedy hijinks brought by the desperate quest to make friends.


Also, in Fate/Hollow Ataraxia news:

I think F/HA would be quite an opinion splitter should it make it to the English language audiences. For one, it does present an interesting, fantasy mystery sort of story and an interesting use of game overs to actually advance the game. On the other hand it also is sort of removed from the canon of the original with the freedoms it takes with the already existing characters, a few new ones and generally not adhering to any particular path of the original game.

Basically, even after half a year since the Holy Grail War, all the servants from the last war still exist and though they've attempted to sort of blend in to society, they've began to feel a strange tension that they suspect to be a sign of the war restarting. So, of course Emiya Shirou, the lead character from Fate/Stay Night goes off to investigate what is going on.

At the same time they also tell a story about a magus working for the Magic Association, Bazett Fraga Makremic (that's pretty much how I'd transliterate it. I'll just assume she's Polish or something) who with a thus far unseen servant fights in what would seem to be a bizzare alternate reality version of the 5th Holy Grail War that was the central event of Fate/Stay Night.

Seems like a billion Chekov's Guns are being set up, so I expect them to pay off.

Yeah, BokuTomo is unexpectedly good. It looks like a terrible generic crude comedy slice-of-life, but manages to be something more.

Also watching Mirai Nikki. It's great, except for the animation, which is of the finest QUALITY.

Just finished watching Texhnolyze.

Couldn't have ended in a better way. Heartbreaking but fitting. It just devastated me emotionally.

This anime was so damn good.

EDIT:

Reading Hokuto No Ken.

I love 80's artstyle.

EDIT2:

"YOU CAN DIE ALONG WITH YOUR LOVE!"
"LOVE NEVER DIES." *ultra cool expression*

This is so epic. I don't know why.

Oh wow! That made my day!

New screenshots from the upcoming Berserk movie!

http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2011/10/19-1/berserk-anime-movie-screen-shots

The artwork is just amazing, especially the background arts, landscapes and all that. Very beautiful!

Well, good. Now... What about the raw violence, bloodshed and slaughter? And more importantly, how far are they taking the first movie? Will it be up to the Eclipse and will they show us Wyald, Silat and the Baakiraka this time? Well, at least the Skull Knight is in!

Well, the artwork has always been stunningly beautiful in berserk adaptations. the only problem was the animation.

Also, I see a deviation from the standard style, like Gutts' face and Judeau's. The rendition of Casca was amazing, though.

(and judging from the title, they'll be pushing it to the eclipse)

The character artwork just tries to match the manga style. I think it did well on that.

Going up to the Eclipse is one long road. The introductory arcs with the Baron and the Count will be most likely omitted and that I don't like. I would love to see the Guardian Angels of Desire Arc animated.

I don't see how they could include everything unless the movie will last about four hours or so. I will be very disappointed if they do it like the first anime and miss on important or otherwise awesome events of the story.

Well, only time will tell. I'll be going for it regardless.

Nuh-uh, the lips are too full, except those of Casca. And Judeau has a HUGE nose.

EDIT: The anime did a near-perfect adaptation of the manga art style. But then again, a lot of the anime was just cut from the manga with a few repetitive animations in between.

Maybe it's the color? Casca's lips are not so full. Judeau's nose is big, I noticed that too, but it does look nice on him. Anyway, details, details.

The first anime sucked! It was just a promo for the manga. Many people I know disagree with me because they got into anime through Berserk, so they came to love it. But I started reading the manga before watching the anime so I was none too happy with the way it turned out to be.

Oh god it looks so good!

Not sure I agree about the lips being too full... looking at some Berserk pages it looks pretty accurate.

The enviromental shots are downright amazing.  I can't fricking wait...!

What? Shirou's pro-stance to rape was something I noticed immediately (and gawked at with keksi).
Also, I just finished F/SN and am on to Unlimited Blade works, which will probably take me another two months.

Also, F/SN did something I never expected at the end: it made me like Shirou, despite his pro-rape policy. Also, how could you ever pick up F/SN AGAIN? It's fun and all, but a gigantic time sink.

You mean you finished the Fate route. The whole thing is called F/SN. Fate, UBW, and HF are the three routes.
And if you think Shirou has a pro-rape policy, just wait 'till you get to Heaven's Feel. Shirou will look like a paragon of gender equality.

Yes, UBW and Heaven's feel are still ahead of me (estimated time of both being done is like march or something.)
And it's not as funny as it is when it's probably just sloppy writing that made Shirou look like a man that condones some good rape (like Glenn Beck). If some one like a certain Sumerian king is all over that stuff and not even shying away about it, it's less funny or not at all.

You may totally mean something else. I'm just at the start of UBW now, where a certain red coat and her red coat friend are proving to be awesome.

Finally gonna be watching Macross Plus as soon as I get the bandwidth to acquire it... generally considered the best in the series so... yeah...

EDIT:

Yup, one of the best. Flawless animation, hear it was the most expensive anime project ever when it was released, which says quite a bit about the quality considering that it's just a 4 episode OVA. It keeps the Macross theme of love and song in struggle, yet it's quite different in scale... focusing on two rival test-pilots and their mutual love for a girl rather than on a full-scale alien conflict.

Definitely worth a watch.

Fate/Zero is getting really good. Kiritsugu's duel with Kayneth in Einzbern Castle was all the rage. Something like that was missing from F/SN, a good fight between two Masters.

It ranks number two in the Type Moon Universe for me. The first being Araya Souren's fight against Aozaki Touko in the Paradox Spiral. Now that was some serious badassery.
