Re: Anime Discussion Thread

L is not the villain tho. And the Yotsuba group arc is probably my favourite part.

I've seen a few discussions around the web where L is ranked among "Anime's best villains" of sorts, and currently, now that I'm watching Death Note for the first time, it perplexes me as to why somebody would say that.

I have a feeling that once it's said and done the Yotsuba group arc will be brilliant. I'm just too accustomed to anime cutting away from the story to bring me pointless nonsense, i.e., Naruto.

5 MONTHS ON THAT GOD DAMN BOAT? SERIOUSLY?

BASICALLY AN ENTIRE EFFING SEASON OF FILLER!

And don't even get me started on NewSong and how it doesn't fit in the least to where the anime is heading.

BTW, Tobi VS Naruto is finally about to happen, but dammit I wanna see the conclusion of Madara VS Everyone. Hopefully it doesn't happen off-page like Kakashi's rampage.



I'm the black guy.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Just about done with El Hazard. Read the lastest chapter of Battle Angel Alita: Last Order. Kinda glad the ZOTT tournament is done, it was fun but I think it was time to end it. Hopefully, focuses on Alita more now. Btw, if there's one bad thing I hate about Berserk is the wait for the next chapter. You have to wait at least two-three months for the next chapter.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I watched the new FMA movie yesterday. Expected something shitty, but it was actually pretty darn amazing.
The animation was fluid, but the art was lacking at some points.
Overall a very good watch.

While he is not the villain, he is the antagonist, which serves a similar role.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Finally I'm done watching El Hazard: the Wanderers. First off, let me say that I'm not that enamored with this series as I was with Magnificent World, mostly because it's mostly the stuff I've seen already. But with that said it's one of the best harem series out there. Like I've said the story is the same with a few minor differences. For instance, Jinnai is the primary villain in this series, but I will get back onto him later. The Eye of God is still used as a device to destroy all the inhabitants of El Hazard. The ending is the roughly same with the roles reversed. The romantic relationships are sorta the same, but a little more fleshed out, with the exception of Makoto and Princess Rune Venus's romance being different from the OVA. So overall it's the same when it's comes down to relationship and story aspect.

As I have stated before, its animation isn't as good as Magnificent World, but it is decent for a tv series. It does have the usual animation faults which anime is known for. The usual repeating frames and animations are there. Such as Shayla-Shayla's power up animation. But I didn't mind too much. The character designs are the same, only Ifurita really drastically change in design.

The characters are basically the same with a couple of differences. Princess Rune Venus, who was seemed older and mature in the OVA, is now kind of playful and childish. She is also the primary love interest of Makoto Mizuhara. Ifurita, now no longer the main love interest, is now a complete ditz of a character. She's basically Curly (from Three Stooges) in anime form. She also faithfully follows Jinnai. All other characters are almost the same. Fujisawa is still great. His relationship with Miz Mahal is more emphasized. Jinnai remains to be the best thing about series. Also I like the relationship between Jinnai and Nanami, it's purely hilarious. While Jinnai is like a competent general controlling the Bugrom army in Magnificent World, here he has really became a Looney Tunes villain, which is fucking great and hilarious. Makoto in Wanderers is more or less a scientist. I find him pretty useless still, but I can't say I outright despise the character. His relationship with Rune is decent since he IS interested in her.

One of problem I do have with the series, is the other characters' involvement with Makoto. Specifically, Shayla and Nanami's romantic involvement. To me, it came off as force and out of nowhere. Nanami, who shown no interest in Makoto, is hinted on liking him towards the end of the series. I just don't like how Shayla is interested in Makoto. She is your typical tsundere character. But I mean, it seems like the producer wanted a love triangle for the sake of having one. In some parts, the story kinda drags a bit.

My final thoughts are it's good series and I would recommended to anyone who's looking a good harem show. It is certainly better than most harem shows, but remember it's still a harem show. 8.5/10 (Thinking back on Magnificent World, I probably should have lowered the score a little bit.)

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I wouldn't say it's the best anime of all time, but Yu Yu Hakusho is certainly better than most Shonen Jump anime.
