Is anybody watching this? It's a revenge, fantasy, time travel anime. Looks kind of fun.

Well, it's finished. That was fun, but I guess I'm the only one who watched it all the way through here. Hope there's a season 2.

By that I meant they could have come up with something a lot better and more natural than what they did. I'm watching Brotherhood now and I have some problems with it too. I kind of wish the 2003 anime wasn't made at all and they just waited until the manga was finished to make a 100 episode adaptation which does the whole story justice.

Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood is the 2009, 64 episode, direct adaptation of the manga of same name. After giving both a watch, I would call Brotherhood the better(more enjoyable) show overall, but it does do a few things worse than the 2003 anime, which I will point out with no regard for closeness to the source material.

Things Brotherhood does worse: The parts both adapt are far better in the 2003 version(for the most part). Brotherhood rushes through them and inserts far too many comedic moments for my taste, to the point where it feels like self-parody. Some of my favorite scenes in the 2003 version were butchered either by the script or directorial decisions like an over reliance of dramatic music and their placement in scenes which I'd prefer to be somber and contemplative. Over-reliance on loud music and under-utilization of silence is actually a problem present throughout the entirety of Brotherhood. 2003 had a different director and it's extremely apparent early on. Even the use of color is arguably worse. I did get used to the more simplistically shaded art style, but it was jarring at first.

The brotherly relationship between Edward and Al is given more focus in 2003 and Ishibal as an actual place and culture is more interesting too, while it's pretty much just a plot device in Brotherhood. 2003 is more focused in a way, which allows it to dive a bit deeper in certain areas. Is this a worth while trade off for enjoyableness? In my opinion, no.

Things Brotherhood does better: Pretty much everything else. As soon as the break off point in plot overlap, around episode 13 of Brotherhood and 30 of 2003, Brotherhood's plot makes far more sense. There wasn't any feeling of incongruity and there was thankfully no dumb, reverse-isekai shit. Brotherhood properly introduces characters like King Bradley(unlike in 2003) and has a far better sense of adventure and conspiratorial atmosphere in the military. The fight scenes(of which there are many) are also miles ahead of 2003's, especially when Bradley is involved.

Character development is a mixed bag in Brotherhood. Some like Winry, Mustang, Bradley, Envy, Greed and so on are given more than in 2003, while others like Lust and perhaps even Edward and Alphonse are diminished in fleshing out and development. Some characters w

My thoughts on the Berserk adaptations are provided below.

Aside from reading a small amount of the manga a very long time ago, my first encounter with Berserk was via the Ougon Jidai-hen movies sometime around 6 years ago. My memory of the movies is fading, which is what triggered my watching the original 1997 TV adaptation. I enjoyed the movies and rated them 7/10. I liked the story above all else.

Anyway, I watched the 1997 TV adaptation of Berserk much more recently, and here's what I have to say about that:

The original adaptation is better in terms of visuals and overall production quality, especially with consideration to production year. I much prefer the art style of the original adaptation. It also has a longer total runtime which is used effectively for greater character development and more plot detail. I would say it is better directed as well.

The story itself is very good, and the adaptation is well executed and well directed. Berserk's strongest characteristic is the writing, but in one respect it is also its greatest flaw from my perspective. My biggest issue with Berserk is the main character — Guts. He is poorly characterized and simply boring as a main character. The series would be much better if Griffith were the main character and Guts were a side character. Griffith is a far more compelling and interesting character than Guts. The same could even be said for Casca, albeit to a lesser degree. Although the 1997 adaptation does a much better job of exploring Casca's character arc than the movies. In any case, I wish that Guts hadn't soaked up so much screentime.

The setting is classic dark medieval fantasy. It is fairly immersive. It is complemented by the high level of visual detail, most notably in landscape frames and backgrounds.

The OST is suitable and pretty good overall (aside from the grating OP and ED songs). However, it would have been nice if there was more variety in the OST, considering the length of this series. Some songs, although they are good, are repeated quite frequently. Voice acting is good as well; the VAs are quite well matched for their character roles, and there's a wide range of voices among the cast.

My overall rating for the 1997 TV adaptation: 8/10

Gekidol was an interesting (in the negative sense) show.

It seems like they tried to copy the "plot-twist-reveal" trick but forgot to actually make the two halfs of the show connect to each other in any meaningful sense. Up until about 8 episodes in, it's actually not terribly bad of a show, and substituting the usual idol tropes with some acting made it a bit more palatable. Of course it's still quite cookie-cutter with the usual "realize your dream" trope – and the character chemistry isn't quite good enough to where you can just watch it as a SoL – but if they had just scoped the anime on the "theatrical hijinks of Alice In," it might have been something at least mildly good; outside of Hinako Note which doesn't really focus on theater anyway, I don't recall too many fully-fledges shows focusing on "cute girls doing acting".

Yet for some reason they decided to shoehorn a multi-timeline time-travel plot in the last three episodes. And the payoff isn't satisfying since this plot doesn't have much to do with the members of Alice In that the viewer had (sort of) gotten to know over the course of the season.

Artwork from cocotama animator Akiko Nagashima, being one of many childrens shows she has worked on apparently. Might be a bit old now but finding this was nice to see that some people working on things like this have real passion for it and keep it close to them.

Not exactly a sport and it will probably be an extension of anime like Yuru Camp or Yama no Susume but I'd like an SoL anime dedicated to walking or お散歩. There are already manga in these forms but I thought a cgdct SoL would probably be nice. I enjoy walking and used to take really long walks exploring new terrains and places but haven't done so in years since I've moved.

Looks like they failed, for now, since this happened in September. If this were to happen, however, then pantsu or similar will probably be used at least on a provisional basis. I think they've been mirroring nyaa.si's database.
