Speaking of manga, I have recently read trail of blood(up to latest chapter), the flowers of evil, and happiness. Both the writing and art are really good stuff. They're all created by the same author.

Yesterday started my home hero and I love it! Salaryman and amateur writer ends up killing his daughter's boyfriend to protect her and things start taking a really bad turn since he happens to be yakuza. Surveilance, deception, body disposal and mind games ^^

I only read the "regular" Jump manga like One Piece. I sometimes browse through a manga if I'm interested in its anime adaptation (like it was the case with Redo of Healer) to get a feel of it but that's all. There are cases when I read a totally random manga because I found it's premise or "cover" interesting. Back when I was younger I collected a lot of tankobon, but not anymore.

Recently my friend, knowing that I have some interest in it, asked me what manga I would recommend for an adolescent youth, but I actually had hard time with it (you know, not wanting to demoralize the youth too much). One of the suggestions was Mairimashi-ta! Iruma-kun and the other was Bakuman...

Well, I was pretty young when I watched "The Eclipse". The first adaptation (although actually manga is even more graphic as it turned out later on, borderline hentai even). You can say for a teenager this was a pretty "memorable" experience. Nowadays, after seeing this much s*it in anime, I'm not even fazed

I followed the whole series although skipped the Manga. Can't wait to watch the final season on Netflix.


Manga has hideous graphics.


Only in the beginning, then it gets better.

Berserk would be pretty hard to handle without Puck's comic relief.

Re Zero

$%!!&*

Well this episode was boring and ends up with quite a cliffhanger. Ofc, the highlight of the episode was seeing a familiar person in quite a different light... I feel like it's a build up to some interesting reveals.

If Subaru saw her he probably would loose his mind... not in a perverted sense, from sheer cuteness I mean.

But those tights on dat Mother Fortuna... mrawr!

EDIT: I swear newest episode of Redo of Healer has reached new standards... drug induced self-fellatio? Next stop - furry sex.

It actually doesn't surprise me cus I browsed through the manga...

Meanwhile higurashi is finally getting somewhere even if it still feels like bs. I kinda liked how there had been suspicious things sprinkled in the previous episodes but that only makes the series worth it when you know the previous and are scanning for inconsistencies and little changes. And now they even reveal Takano's background and proceed to sweep it under the rug and move on. The author should be shot for recommending this series to be watched first. He should have said it's a remake/sequel and leave it at that.

That said, kudos to the people who had seen the reveal coming almost from the very beginning, I mostly stayed at 'huh, weird'. Though given the conclusions they came to with such limited information makes me suspect that they had read material I hadn't. I also see a lot of mentions to umineko but don't know if the reported ties are speculation or officially confirmed. I never played the VN but hear that it has a good manga adaptation so I might check it out.

Yep, I didn't watch the first anime and I'm totally confused. I mean I have a brain (I think so at least) so I can pick up bits and pieces here and there based on what I've read/heard/deduced (I know what is the "nature" of the virus for example and how it works), but this totally looks like something made for people who actually know what was going on in the first anime/original story. And the whole anime is like that, some past events are only flashbacked in such a way that only those who've seen it before will know what it is...

It's a total mess of storytelling because it's common courtesy to add at least some kind of summary/catch-up episodes/scenes. The original adaptation is 13 year old ffs... so if you say the author is like that then he is simply misinforming people.

I can't seem to find something, wonder if I've mixed up my sources. What he did say is that this is a newcomer friendly series and that it would have sprinkled in bits and pieces that only original fans would be aware of. It is not a direct sequel like kai or rei if that makes it newcomer friendly but compared to the original it messes with explosition and timing significantly and even skips crucial parts. I'm sure every old fan would agree that it's not a good place to start.



[SPOILERS]

Take last episode, throwing in Takano with a beret, agents and Satoshi. What the hell was that? As an original viewer, what did this mean to you? And Rika makes a big deal out of Satoko remembering a previous loop. What are you smoking, there have already been instances of that happening to others. Asdf.

Excuse me guys, I haven't been around much. I had to put on hold everything here. Just way too busy bringing Wall Street down on its knees, but hopefully I'll be able to join you guys soon. For now though, duty calls.

Hope you're still enjoying anime and manga!

Haha, I knew it would be your kind of thing

I wonder if there ever was an anime about straight on fighting evil corpos... can't recall. Well they like to reference to the themes of overwork and being a corpo slave, but maybe they aren't allowed to show them in too much of a bad light...

Cool, just be careful not to create too big of a backlog after this season, cus there are quite a few interesting animes.

In the end I started the umineko visual novel after some tinkering. Thank goodness the visuals were updated, the original art was pretty bad.

I thought I'd check its length and.. The LOTR trilogy plus the hobbit combined have almost half of its word count. I'm doomed.

Yeah that was actually an interesting twist, and some quick wits from Rudy... although it did answer my one question: how is it that Spoiler a hot babe maid lives under the same roof with a horny dude an there are no "incidents"? Spoiler end. But the series got it covered

I would rather see some action As in, less politics more infighting (yeah I know one of the series qualities is its approach to the Player vs NPC interactions, but some "field" action would be welcome).
