>Ahiru no Sora drama over anime adaption of the basketball anime
The 'eye tracings' greatly annoyed me, but I read the (TL'd, of course) manga up to a point, and the adaption doesn't seem all that different. The biggest thing that changed, for me, is that the hoodlums were more brutal to the MC in the beginning. The fact that this anime can be a glorified powerpoint presentation for a good chunk of a game is more irritating. But then again, perhaps I haven't read enough of the source material.

List your top 5 anime. They can include movies and ova's.

Mine are:

5)Kaze to Ki no Uta SANCTUS
4)Revolutionary Girl Utena
3)Fullmetal Alchemist (2003)
2)The Rose of Versailles
1) Berserk (1997)

Btw, no need to mention Cory in the House, It's such a good anime that there is just no need to state the obvious.

from what I can recall, the only character a voice actor would have even made sense for outside of sonic and eggman is maybe lala. the rest never speak, even in their own games, outside of stock audio clips. I actually thought it added to the humor when jeffrey showed up and *still* only said "I win" all the time.

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

>the focus on love as a central driving theme seems very 70's.
I mean, it should. I really liked that theme, it felt really justified in having it because they really displayed how much they did or would sacrifice for love.
That was a really funny series. The ED is catchy as hell.

How much do you care about encode quality of the anime you watch?

For newer shows there's not really much choice since you're essentially limited to downloading stream rips from HS/Erai (or re-encodes thereof) or waiting until a blu-ray release. But even then, do you go back and re-watch/re-download shows for archival purposes, and if so how much care do you put into select the "best" encode (bitrate, compression format, etc.). Do you use a local upscaler (e.g. Anime4K as discussed in a previous thread on here)?

For older shows you can usually find a plethora of different releases from different groups – especially during the infamous push for 10-bit – and amusingly I used to find myself spending more time sorting through them trying to pick out the "best" than it took to watch several episodes.

I pick some lower quality compromise usually, for older shows usually 480p for newer 720, mostly to save disk space. For shows I really like I'll get some BD release. If there's a fansub I'll usually pick that over dual audio releases also.
>> No. 34328 [Edit]

I often go back to download and archive BD releases of shows I enjoyed.

Care a lot for personal favorites. Preferably 1080p x264 FLAC BDrip with scans of the packaging and audio CDs. Also the BDMV.
For shows I enjoyed, HEVC Hi10P, preferrably OPUS.
In both cases I look for encoders and groups I trust/have downloaded from previously and just watch some parts to check for inconsistencies. Sometimes I download an episode or 2 to compare.

For shows I didn't like much, I go for a smaller 720p release, HEVC if available, and just check that it wasn't a 16yo hackerman encode.

Usually raws.
Quality and completion over size.

Because I like to reminisce about shows I've watched; Admire the cover art and character design of the characters I like; Do not trust companies to keep them; Like to think that some day, may be able help someone who is looking for the files of a show they'd like to watch/archive in the future.

These shows and characters are my little treasures.

For older anime I don't mind if it's a DVD rip (it just has to be a good one). I find most of my stuff in high-quality anyway. But for recent anime I try to get the best release available since I've a lot of space with my 2x3TB HDD.

3/10 seems harsh given your description. I don't like numerical ratings because what they're based on isn't clear. Personal enjoyment, production values, some abstract relative quality? A "mathematical" formula for scoring would be contrived too. I don't think I ever finished an anime I really hated or would give a 3/10 for. Maybe it's because I only watch stuff I'm confident I'll be interested in.
>> No. 34440 [Edit]
For me, it's basically just an intuitive measure of overall satisfaction or enjoyment.

For the past year I've been taking chances on things I wouldn't ordinarily seek out, so there have been a lot of pessimistic scores. If that movie were a TV show, I would have dropped it after a few episodes and never written anything about it.
>> No. 34441 [Edit]
I feel like I should elaborate a little. In addition to the crippling direction problems, I felt very frustrated by the behaviour of the characters.

I literally would have been much better off just spending those two hours by watching an actual documentary about WW2 Japan civilian life.

Gallery Fake is a 2004, 37 episode anime about a suave, but shifty art dealer with a heart of gold getting into various exploits along with his cute assistant. It follows an episodic format with some continuity, but no actual overarching story. From the beginning of Gallery Fake to the end, nothing substantial changes.

The art style and animation is simple, standard and bland. Nothing about it stands out. The ost is fine, but repetitive to the point of being a bit obnoxious. There might have been one scene which gets its own track.

Some episodes are more grounded and realistic, while others are more adventure and action based. A few episodes veer off into completely ridiculous plots. There's magic and psychics in this show. Not as a regular part, but just casually in a few episodes and played completely straight. It's bizarre. Gallery Fake is neither grounded nor fantastical, it's different depending on the episode. There's also a whole lot of sappy little plot lines reminiscent of a soap opera.

I kind of don't like episodic anime anymore, especially longer ones. I was hoping the romance subplot would at least go somewhere, but it doesn't. It's hinted at, poked at, but it hardly progresses and has no conclusion, which I feel is juvenile. There's also a character introduced which you'd really, really expect to become a regular cast member, but never appears again. Gallery Fake is adapted from a manga which continued to run after the anime, so that may explain it. I tried looking for a scanlation to see if there's some kind of proper conclusion, but couldn't find one.

Gallery Fake is also somewhat educational about art. The subject matters are all based on things in real life and widely vary from different cultures and time periods. It could be considered a "cosmopolitan" anime.

I would recommend Gallery Fake if you're really interested in art or love the suave, highly competent, slightly unscrupulous character archetype.

For anyone who might be curious. Rather than having dead air during the usual time precure would air, They've been filling the time slots by reairing the season again from the start. Question is at the moment if they're going to pick back up once they get to ep 12, or if they'll delay this again due to the second outbreak in japan, and if so if they'd repeat this season a third time.
