I watched Magic-Kyun! Renaissance. Here are my thoughts.

Positive aspects:
>setting and atmosphere
>art style
>decent character insert songs with enjoyable scenes to accompany them
>sometimes romantic

Negative aspects:
>mediocre direction
>bland and somewhat unlikable characters
>bland plot

There are aspects of this anime that I really liked and appreciated, but my average level of enjoyment over time was moderate at best. Overall rating: 6/10

I doubt there has been many good light novels. The only ones on the top of my head that I can think of that are not fanfiction tier are Kino, All you Need Is Kill, Spice and Wolf, and maybe Overlord and Haruhi.

I watched Amaama to Inazuma. Here are my thoughts:

The anime is mainly focused on a single widowed father and his kindergartenish age daughter. Cooking is the primary focus of the show and the bulk of each episode revolves around cooking in some way. This cooking theme is a major component of the anime's appeal, at least from my point of view.

I don't like the daughter character's voice actor. She sounds like she has food in her mouth or something. Really unnatural-sounding voice acting in her case. Otherwise, the show's audio is completely unremarkable.

Don't really like the character designs, although they appear to be accurate depictions of the manga art. Animation quality is okay and the art style is bland.

Emotional aspects of the show feel forced and artificial. The characters are quite bland and lacking in personality. Spuriously sentimental moments are often forcefed to the viewer in a way that feels crude and unnatural.

The main characters are literally imbeciles. To the point that it's both unbelievable and infuriating. Actually, none of the characters are particularly likable.

I did appreciate that there was sometimes considerable detail shown in the cooking processes. At the same time though, the most detailed scenes were often the most frustrating because the incompetence of the characters was illuminated to an even greater degree. For example, there was one otherwise okay episode where the characters randomly are gifted fish which was freshly caught off a pier from a stranger on a hot day. The characters gut the fish and proceed to eat it as sashimi on impulse, and even feed some to the ~6 year old daughter character. No sanitation or deep freezing procedures are used to eliminate parasites, so it's fairly dangerous, particularly for a child. I used to eat freshly caught fish raw too IRL before I learned how stupid it was. Anyway, this is just one of many examples where my enjoyment is compromised by the idiotic behaviour of the characters. Generally speaking I'm quite permissive in this regard when it comes to anime, and I'm not the type to ever complain about 'realism', but still the constant incompetence of the characters was off-putting to me. It was well beyond the realm of endearing and deep into annoyi

I found why the theatrical version of Evangelion isn't so popular in the West.
It's format is based on traditional Japanese arts.

Eva 1: 'the first act as "Love"; the play opens auspiciously, using gentle themes and pleasant music to draw in the attention of the audience'.
Eva 2: 'The second act is described as "Warriors and Battles" (shura). Though it need not contain actual battle, it is generally typified by heightened tempo and intensity of plot'.
Eva 3 Q (kyu): 'The third act, the climax of the entire play, is typified by pathos and tragedy. The plot achieves its dramatic climax'.
Eva 4: 'the fourth act as a michiyuki (journey), which eases out of the intense drama of the climactic act, and often consists primarily of song and dance rather than dialogue and plot'.
Eva 5: 'The fifth act, then, is a rapid conclusion. All loose ends are tied up, and the play returns to an auspicious setting'.

I know what it means; I, however, have no reason to believe you. Do you believe your word is better than mine? Oh my, then, it's almost like you're me, being pretentious, acting superior.
I mean, if we're equal, and I claim I am not pretentious but you claim I am, who is right? Neither of us, right? Because we're equal. Unless somebody is better than the other, unless you are superior to me or I am to you, then neither of us can claim to be correct.

No kidding. I hate it when anime release OVA/Films like episodes in a series but spread them out over years. These could work fine as stand alone movies if the editing wasn't ass backwards. The least they could do is not leave every movie with a poorly placed cliffhanger. BC should have been the soul focus of the first movie/OVA. The run time of that felt too short anyway. This one feels longer while only being ten minutes more because it's like two movies gutted and smashed together. Each movie should really focus on a different team. Start by building up to the new team, introduce them, have the battle, and finish that battle by the end of the episode/movie. You'd think that'd be common sense? Instead it seems what they're doing will just deflate the tension/build up from the previous movie, while giving each movie itself a disappointing and abrupt non-ending. Part 2 seemed like it'd focus on BC, but they're out about a quarter in.

It was nice how in the first movie, BC caught onto Ooarai's intel gathering and used that against them. I thought that was a clever and well done twist. BC acted to be a shitty team full of in-fighting that could very well take themselves out, but we find out it was just a ruse to screw with Ooarai's tactics. We then wait years to find out BC is a shitty team full of in-fighting that could very well take themselves out... Okay.
With part 2 meanwhile it's pretty obvious Ooarai will beat Chi-Ha-Tan by charging at them, and make Chi-Ha-Tan feel like fools for not being true to their charging obsessed nature. But god forbid they put the climax and resolution at the end of the movie!

Girls und Panzer Das Finale part 02, essentially puts the second act first, the third act in the middle, and ends with the first act of what should be a different movie/ep. This can work if you're watching all of these back to back, but no

Regardless of the pacing they aren't actually movies so they aren't going to follow the conventions of movies. I prefer it this way, it will create a better product in the end rather than having to adapt each episode to being a micro-film.

Watch Card Captor Sakura if you haven't already.
It's more serious than the shows you listed but it's one of the best magical girl shows out there.

Also, it's not 100% Mahou Shoujo but, you'd probably like Magical Pokaan.

Like most adaptations of ecchi/porn, it mostly sucks. Animation too budget to be hot or adapt the manga style. Also censored to hell so there's basically no point to watching the tv version. Only good part was the spats shot of the futa loli angel.

As a side note, it's strange anyone's even picked this series up at all. En press did the translation of the manga too, which struck me as odd. Like who looked at this series and said "yeah this looks like a solid investment"? I need to learn moonrunes already, people who pick what gets translated be crazy.

Why is it so important whether I call it pornography or not? It's equivalent to porn for me, whether or not it is technically porn is irrelevant.

By definition it is pornography, if you want to be technical.

I finished the first season of rozen maiden last night. Cried alot watching the last 2 episodes. I felt really bad for Suiginto and cried. It was so sad. And the part where Nori finds Jun in his dream was really sad. Gonna continue with the next season later today. Rozen Maiden thread.

Rozen Maiden is such a neat series, although I have yet to actually read the manga. The anime, though, is definitely a memorable one, and probably one of my favorites. Incredibly engaging characters, a very interesting plot, very good character designs, and animation that's sometimes cheesy and kind of awkward (six finger Suigintou) but works most of the time.
There's also a new season that everybody ignored that's supposed to be based on the new manga. The first episode is a really hasty recap though so it's kind of awkward going into after you just watched/rewatched the original series.
>> No. 34068 [Edit]
I started watching it as well. I have finished the first two and Overture and am now watching the 2013 version. It feels A LOT different than the others, it was written by two people so maybe that's why or it may be that it was the anime making it more serious or the anime of the other making it less serious. It's quite subdued and almost boring at times so far.
>> No. 34072 [Edit]
Okay, so I finished watching the 2013 anime, plus I read the manga up to where the new anime starts and then skimmed through until the new anime ends to see if there were many differences.

The 2013 anime was not great, it didn't get better from when I made the above post. Where as the first had more of the dolls together and had them often in an SoL type setting the new version didn't. It was more drama like and I didn't like the protagonist or the antagonist(the true one, I like Sugintou) much and it got quite silly.

The new anime is not actually an alternative version, the old anime ran out of source material and as is often the case it had to make an ending of it's own. The new anime is based on where the manga picks up again(but then again, overtakes the manga). The Manga up until the point that the new anime starts is actually fairly good, it feels much more like the old season(even the parts from when it diverts), there are some other differences and I didn't mind them, Sugintou is portrayed slight differently. Well I think. There is a side story called Rot Schwarz that apparently goes into the back story of Sugintou and Shinku, if it's like the back story in Overture then it would just mean the manga contradicts itself, it's possible. I can't actually find this anywhere to read, I can only find that it exists.

Actually overtake might be a bit misleading, it just stops when it runs out of material.
