damn, i was gonna watch Ergo proxy, but it's hard to get into it...it's just somehow very pessimistic, even for an anime.

But i hear it's good.....dev, if not, you should check Shinsekai yori, if you like that one i think....

Recently read Great Teacher Onizuka at Librin's recommendation. I liked it a lot! It's actually the second manga I ever read, the first being The Legend of Koizumi. (I would definitely recommend the Koizumi stuff, it's about political leaders battling it out with games of Mah Jong, and it's pretty intense!)

Just this week, I started watching Food Wars on Crunchyroll. They talk about it a lot on the Cooptional Podcast, so I figured I'd give it a go. So far it's been pretty amazing! I mean, it's cooking, and it's so intense! I love it how anime can take such casual things like Mah Jong or cooking and make them look like some grandiose epic fight. I guess it's kind of a "Gurren Lagann"-ification of casual things?

Also, now that I actually have a smartphone, I've discovered that watching anime in bed at night is pretty great. Kinda wish I had a tablet to just chill with movies and anime. Much comfier than watching them on my PC in a desk chair, even if it is a pretty sweet chair

If you're not comfy on your desk chair, why not replace it with a sofa or a couch or something? Also you can move your PC into your room, so that you can plop on the bed behind you when you watch anime

Maybe because the room doesn't support that? Like my room. Bed is between two walls.

And yeah, tablets are great, though I rarely use it to watch anime, because I prefer watching them in 60fps using SVP. Though for me, I like watching stuff sitting. If I'd be in the bed, I'd fall asleep while watching.

Tablets are good at watching youtube or twitch tho. Whenever I have to go to the toilet while watching the Cooptional Podcast, I just switch to my tablet.

Well, currently my PC is in the same room as my bed but the bed is kind of far from the desk, I'd need a really big screen and also I'd need a lot of pillows to recline against

Also, I didn't say my desk chair isn't comfy, it's very comfy indeed, it's just that chilling in bed / on a couch is even comfier. (This is some first world problem right here...)

I don't think I could watch things on the toilet tho That seems just gross to me

The final 2 episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion and the feature film End Of Evangelion have just entered my list of dumbest shit I have ever watched in my life.

Up until then the show was... mediocre, the story was all over the place, a mess of both editing and storytelling, but I don't want to go into details. I don't see what people found so special about it to be on so many "best anime ever" lists, but it is watchable I guess. I did some research about the show and story, to make things more clear, but I still don't see those "special" things people that praise it saw in it.

But the conclusion, man. It's like the writer had all these ideas, messages and story undertones he wanted to build through the show, but forgot, then he simply shoved it all in the last two episodes. And then he tried to fix it by remaking it all in the film, and made it more "fucked up" than it was originally, if you know what I mean.

I haven't watched the new "rebuild" versions, but while watching this I thought that is exactly what the show needs; reediting the entire show would potentially make it much better, even without adding new scenes, just moving few scenes from the ending to earlier episodes would help the flow of the story and better show the inner struggles of the characters, and you wouldn't be so overwhelmed at the end.

I think the studio ran out of money for the final two episodes, hence.

But yeah, welcome to the club. I watched the thing back then when it was relatively new-ish and the craze was on-going, but even then I thought it was bullshit. As far as I was concerned, I treated the series as a personal insult, and the studio only redeemed themselves to me when they made Gurren-Lagann (though before that FLCL almost made the apology). (And then that group that made GL left the studio and they went and formed their own Studio Trigger, who are saving anime even today.)

Well, i'm kinda the same. I do wonder if it's maybe something to do with the time when you watched it. I only watched it relatively recently, but i wonder if i watched it when it originally aired, would i have different opinion. Maybe in it's time, it was much more original or something. It does indeed feel like author wanted to do all sorts of symbolism and such things into it, but as if he lost it somewhere along the process.
Also....iirc, didn't main author have mental problems at the time which iirc, had big influence on this story? Others can probably fill you in on that.

I did watch the new NGE movie series though and....i honestly have even bigget WTF after end of movie 3.....A lot of people in 3rd movie goes 180 on their character development and just not really making much sense.

So yeah, i dunno, it seems to always have been the anime that you either totally hate it or totally love it.

Also, iirc, ther was anime Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor, where the idea is VERY similar, and i think it actually had much more polished story and development, so if these types of stories interests you, might wanna check it out.

Evangelion was a series that was good for the time in which it aired. It was heavy on the psychology and spirituality and really reached people who were dealing with all of that. But even in its time... people either loved or hated it. It had a very slim target audience. Storytelling has come a long way since then. I haven't watched any of the reboot movies yet. Maybe I should.

Btw, the basic idea of the show is about relationships and individuality. A person can never really understand another person because they are another person. So when you get to the ending it explores the possibility of all people becoming one, in perfect harmony. But at the same time... why would we want that? It would be lonely and boring. So at the risk of being hurt emotionally and psychologically, Shinji decides that he wants people to be separate.

Yup, I'm pretty much skipping this season. At least I now got time to watch the Summer Season, which I barely started.

Oh ffs, I haven't been watching any anime for a year now, just this night, I actually managed to watch 1 episode of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!.

And I fell in love with its setting and humor, I am glad I was finally able to break this curse. *happy sigh*

I need to re-watch that. But this season has a few interesting ones. Ao no Exorcist S2, Granblue Fantasy, Kono Subarashi S2, and Schoolgirl Strikers (not my usual sort).

Since my last post here I've been doing a lot of weebing.

I've read all of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure volumes, up to most of Part 8 (I think I'm behind with 2-4 chapters). It's really amazing and I wish I had found it sooner.

I've read all of the currently released chapters for Berserk... I haven't been reading much manga, but dat artstyle... It's my favorite manga out of the very few that I've read, and I doubt I could find something I'd enjoy more.

I've been collecting the physical Berserk volumes for a few months now, still waiting on some to arrive.

I've also started collecting JoJo's hardcover re-release, because it's bloody JoJo and it's great.


In terms of anime, I dunno if I remember everything I've recently watched... but here goes:

Free! - one of the few slice of life style animes I've watched - it was fun. (Wait, did I watch it last year or the year before?!)
Berserk - At first I thought it was cool, then I read the manga and was like "oh... I see why everyone's hating on it..." It also lead me to discover Susumu Hirasawa's music, so that's cool too.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - I've watched everything that has been released and it's "the best"(tm). It convinced me to read and then buy all of the manga stuff, so yea. Definitely my favorite anime of last year.
Mob Psycho 100 - I wasn't sure what to expect, but it had way more depth than I thought it would and ended up being my 2nd favorite of last year.
Yuri on Ice - Probably my 3rd favorite anime from last year. I can't believe I'm even saying that, it's not my usual kind of anime When I started watching it my thoughts were "man, this is kind of gay... why am I even watching it", but by the end I was like "This was great. I want more and I want it yesterday!"

I'm not sure if it counts as anime, but RWBY has completely blown away my expectations in Season 3 and continues to do so in Season 4.
