I mostly watch non-airing shows
I was watching the first season of the new space battleship yamato recently
yuki a bijin
I watched Your Name last year when it was five years old.
I only really watch non-airing anime. I prefer to download a whole series at once and watch over a couple days.
I'm bad at keeping up with stuff.
Same but I just hate waiting for stuff. Binge watching is my preferred method.
Waiting is frustrating but it's also nice to have something to look forward to.
More of the first, less the second for me. I'm frustrated to no end when some content is timegated for me I'm interested in
I have automatic downloads so it usually isn't too much effort once the season has started. Binge watching is nice but I feel like I usually don't remember the show as vividly then, which hurts especially when its a show I liked. I like to slowly watch most of the old anime.>>979
It was really nice wasn't it? I loved the mountaintop scene.
I really enjoyed it, nice visuals, cool
story, and a sweet ending. It was great!
Where do my nenly friends download their anime?
>it was so boring.
I think part of the charm is that the story doesn't feel rushed like a lot of anime.
just watched akagi and trigun both endings felt rushed and they ran out of budget
they were still cool
This and also coming to your own conclusions about the topics it touches. I like to think of it as something that only points into a direction, the rest is up to you. Given that you understand what it even brings up. Only with my rewatch 2 years ago I understood the episodes with the robots and the submerged city, before it flew over my head why Kino was surprised at the end.
hmm I guess I have multiple, can't really decide on a single favorite.
I really liked all Aria Ops and EDs, but Euforia was definitely my favorite OP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB1lHQz8P5g
Another one I really liked is utawarerumono's second OP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCFU4f04mug
There's really a lot of them I like, maybe CLANNAD's vn opening is worth mentioning? I don't find any other VN openings as memorable as that one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1ShQMEXHAo
Utawarerumono has great OPs. I think this one is my favorite. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7sfapVybtNg
Oh I also think it is worth noting that Farewell Song is basically perfect. I hope it isn’t cheating to use an ED… https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=k4moOdG6Arc
I think it might be the .hack//sign opening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrhdGOlsSRA
, something about this is just so whimsical. I also really enjoy the openings to welcome to the nhk.
As I said it felt rushed to me, they too quickly concluded many things. Maybe I am just too inattentive to notice the subtleties but I thought it left very little to ambiguity and pretty explicitly told the viewer what to think. Now I wonder if I watched the same anime as everyone else…
I really liked the Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume OP. The song alone is amazing, but when they cut away in the middle of it to the character's internal monologue to build tension and come back in at the tensest point in the song it's so flipping dramatic and cool
it lights my chuuni soul ablaze. It works so well that I'm surprised that gimmick isn't used more often.
>>3513>it felt rushed to me
Did you binge watch the show in only one or a couple sittings? I think if so the pacing can feel really different since your mind tends to wander and pay less attention when you're basically speed running watching something.
>I thought it left very little to ambiguity and pretty explicitly told the viewer what to think.
Scenarios and places were explained but I don't think it really explicitly told the viewer what to think. The story is mostly told from the perspective of Kino who for the most part is very detached and coldly commenting on things, with Hermes occasionally interrogating her thoughts which usually tend to be some form or another of, "such and such was peculiar," or, "I might like to know more, but I'll have to leave so I can see the next country." Often where biases show, it's when people other than Kino are explaining their country or situation to her. Obviously there are messages to extract from the stories, but its no different than what any other parable does. For instance, if we're told in a story that there's a demon king and he's evil, are we being told what to believe, or are these simply details of the story world? I think that's an important distinction to make. You're free to disagree with Kino, or anyone. Not all narrators are reliable or omniscient either. Likewise, not all of the stories necessarily have any meaning.
I only watch non-airing anime! For me to watch seasonal, it has to be super enjoyable for me, and that rarely happens.>>3497
Nothing makes me happier than the Girls Und Panzer opening. Even when I'm sad, it always makes me smile
Also I feel a lot more nostalgic for the art style now than when it aired. Which funnily feels influenced by the early 2000s western cartoon shows which themselves were influenced by anime like Powerpuff Girls, my life as a teenage robot, and others.
I'd continue by watching the Cinderella Girls, then you can make friends with a whole new cast and charge up on Usamin power.
I really liked rebellion i hope you enjoyed it too
Watched this a year or so ago, really enjoyee'd it
Never watched the second episode of the hidamari graduation episodes
i watched Code Geass for the first time recently. i really liked it! i thought it was cool
! the ending made me feel really depressed, though. i hate sad endings.
there are a ton of older well-loved anime i've been meaning to watch, like Cowboy Bebop, (maybe) Gurren Lagann, Sailor Moon, Tokyo Mew Mew, and probably a ton of others that are slipping my mind…>>3497
i have way too many openings that i like for me to only choose one favorite, but Code Geass's second opening quickly became one of them.
Love this anime its my favorite Satoshi Kon film. I got to see it in the movie theater a few years ago for a special event which was nice
, glad you got to experience that
loved every second of Perfect Blue and Millennium Actress, but my favorite Satoshi Kon work has to be Paranoia Agent
that one scene where the detective rejects escapism is one of the most powerful scenes in anime, i findhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMmCGd5ywUU
That's the only thing he's made that I've yet to see, not for any particular reason either it just kinda never happened.
Hi nen the author for netojuu no susume recently released all the chapters on her pixiv a couple months ago and a text ending for the series. Just read it and was happy from the wave of emotions as I finally got closure for the series after it went on hiatus so many years ago. Her health is also better but it sounds like shes not going to draw anymore manga unfortunately…
Someone probably posted a translation somewhere but heres the pixiv link: https://www.pixiv.net/novel/series/10686849
I like May and Rally. What makes me like characters even more is they being nenly friends to each other like they are. Never watched Riding Bean and Bean Bandit though, would be nice to see more of them.
