What are you watching?
What are you enjoying?
What have you dropped?
What are you looking forward to next season?
Just be warned if you decide to watch the rebuilds as they are pretty awful. 1.0 is more or less a retread if the first half of the series, but the others really just shit all over everything so watch them at your own peril.

Heard the manga was really good but never got around to reading it.
Might give the show a shot since I bearably read manga these days.
Why do you watch things you know you won't like?
Where's the fun in that?
If you want an actual reason; it's because synopses are terrible for anime. They're all dumb - it's all about the execution.

They either spoil everything or are too vague. In which case you can check the studio, the art style, and the voice actors to know more. Trailers too.
>They're all dumb - it's all about the execution.
Where's the logic in this? If they are dumb why do you watch it? Just to say you saw it and be "in" with the cool anime hipsters?
I want to watch the show and form my own opinion, how is this bad?
What I meant is that there's lots of stuff that I enjoyed watching that I wouldn't have even tried if I had paid attention to things like the synoposes, studio, art style, voice actors etc. I literally just download everything with a '01' in it every season and watch it without knowing anything but the title. I don't even translate the title.
I would say it's a pretty bad way to go about watching anime because you essentially are leaving it up to how you feel at the time. Plus the more anime you watch in a row, the more tiresome it will become and you will probably come to like the first few shows that you watch after you wake up while your mind is still fresh, and then begin to dislike the ones you watch later on either due to annoyance or tiredness - which is what your "reviews" seem like every season.
So if your goal is being the "anime review guy" on wizchan you are doing a terrible job, because there's no way all of these reviews are viewed proffesionnally with an objective view. Your final verdict ends up landing on which anime you watch first before you get tired. Not a single person will take you seriously because of this, and would rather form their own opinions on what to watch or not.
>>30775>there's no way all of these reviews are viewed proffesionnally with an objective view.
Not even him but why the fuck do you think people would care about this here? They're short review blurbs on an obscure image board for virgins, I'm guessing the guy just takes several minutes to write them for fun and maybe a couple other wizards will check them out based on the descriptions.
so what you're saying is that you want to be the "anime review guy" and review "proffesionnally with an objective view" but you're mad this other guy beat you to the punch?
Please no bully. He has legitimate criticisms, even if I think they don't really matter.
His criticism is as legitimate as if you were to go to the drawing or photo thread and saying they're wasting their time because there is no way their work will ever have as much artistic or entertainment value as a professional. It is legitimate insofar as it's not wrong but it completely misses the point and is destructive to the content creation in this website. I don't know what the anime review guy is making reviews for but I've always enjoyed it because it's shorter, more sincere, cover almost all airing anime and comes from a fellow wizchan poster. Being objective or professional is not why I read his posts and I assume not why he is writing them for. Regardless of his motives, his anime watching habit is none of anybody's business and his review is very welcome in this site, much more than a pointless criticism that benefits no one.
Agreed. That kind of criticism would make sense if the guy was trying to brand some new anime review blog or something. However in the context of this kind of anonymous posting on an obscure chan it seems counter productive to the point of the site and somewhat discourages the posting interesting content. If you disagree with him about his opinions it would probably be better to argue on a point by point and show by show basis instead.
Vikings, longboats, kind of weird rotoscoped action scenes. The source material suffered from people being way too strong, and it carries over here. I've read the manga so I know what's coming, and this adaptation is pretty good.
Idol school. Except that it's male idols, and the self-insert female character is the producer for them. This wouldn't pass the genderbend test as at the moment it's instant reverse harem of attractive males.
Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou:
Production is wonky at parts, but never makes any storytelling blunders. Some kind of fantasy. Japanese fantasy, which means magic, swords, RPG elements, and characters who can see their own stats. Manages to be actually pretty interesting. Main character, through some luck, suffering and ingenuity gains some pretty dumb powers, and power levels a bit. I think my standards are really low. Likely to be dropped within a few episodes.
are they rotoscoped? a lot of it looks like CGI
Not entirely sure but it does look weird either way
>>30806>Also sofas do not stop bullets
At some point I just give most things a pass when it comes to stuff like that. It is only when they do something really retarded that it takes me out of it. It takes a pretty hardcore attention to detail to get gun stuff 100% right in media. Effort that if spend well elsewhere that I appreciate I am willing to give it a pass.
Worth noting is that Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e, for all its flaws, had a scene where a guy kicked up a table to stop himself getting shot and the bullet just went through the table.
>>30819>It is only when they do something really retarded that it takes me out of it
Yeah, I stopped Jormungand watching because of that.
>>30877>has any other wizard here watched Ranma?
Show was ok but the movie was totally shit.
I watched the first 140 or so episodes and I have yet to watch the rest. I never liked the gender bending but overall, the show is pretty well done and it works well. The genre mix came bretty gud
Yes. I believe I've watched all of the episodes and the movie. The movie seems to cut some loose ends, and it's how I finished the series.
I can't remember much, and that's probably a good indication that the show was forgettable. Overall, I remember watching it and not liking it since things went back to the way they were, IIRC, and the time skip where Ranma is now 18 years old
I don't remember much, and I don't care to re-visit it.
The way I like to think of it is proto-inuyasha, especially if you watch the dub.
Argentina, it used to be huge here in the 90's
Blame is ultra boring and ugly, don't watch.
>>29212>What are you watching?
Shin Mazinger Z Shōgeki! Zetto Hen
Tetsujin 28 (2004)
so far i'm enjoying them
Dororo and Isekai Quartet.
Dororo is nice, but a bit too gruesome.
Iseakai quartet is interesting. I only actually finished Tanya's anime while giving up on the rest at varying stages for various reasons, but it is intresting to see these characters in the same anime how and how they interacts and such. The Cast of the demon lord anime are lacking, it would have been better to replace them with something else.
Mexico here,it used to be popular here too,along with DBZ (that shit is like a religion here pretty much everyone under 25 saw it)
I think evangelion on netflix is censored…
You made the right decision. It's wildly overrated.
oh yeah I remember seeing that the final episode of DB Super was aired on a public square over there. Here in Argentina is also probably the most popular anime ever along with Saint Seiya, the Broly movie was the most watched one in cinemas for two weeks straight.
I'm watching sounan desu ka now and it's great,I was expecting some kind of stupid ecchi shit but it's actually quite good,you actually learn a lot about survival and the comedy is pretty good.
Most 20th century another tried to copy american sitcom. Japan had a weird hysteria with american culture back then, so did america
Chio-chan was great. I wish they would make another season.
I recently also really enjoyed Asobi Asobase, you should try that one out too if you haven't.
those two were practically my staple food during the season they were airing, really enjoyed them
looks wizardly, thank you
downloading right now
Just caught up with Attack on Titan, currently watching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood for the first time. Watched the 2003 version years ago, so it was painful to see Shou Tucker's treachery towards his daughter again. he deserved to die after turning his daughter into a chimera, so it was sweet seeing he did not live like in the 2003 show.
I am only partway through season 1, so I am still waiting to see more differences between the 2003 show and the 2010 show.
The show should start differing massively for you pretty soon. Some people like one or the other more but I think both were good for different reasons.
give it a few episodes more and you'll see an entirely new series
I look forward to it! I have heard nothing but good about it
