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?

I finished watching all of Kyoukai no Kanata some hours ago and I feel divided about it. On one hand, it's beautifully animated, the art is great, it's super fun and there's moe to be spared and shared (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx6ftgVj_y0), but on the other hand I feel like it was a bit of a wasted opportunity, specially because they couldn't find a way to balance the series didn't taking itself too seriously while simultaneously trying to get serious when needed, specially in the movie (Mirai-hen) which started great and then fell down. I really enjoy watching anime about supernatural creatures and/or occult, yet in this case it always felt like it was secondary to the fun and moe, and the romance plot-line. I was thoroughly entertained though, so in the end I guess that's all that counts.

I thought the crow was a metaphor for a person who was with her during her last moments and tried to save her? At least I personally felt that it hinted at her possibly killing herself but perhaps a parent seeing this and her feeling ashamed because of the pain she caused that person.

That crossed my mind as well, but then I realized that not only nobody else had something similar about them, but they were generally dismissive of crows, with the exception of Kuu, who saw them in a specific light because of her "enlightment". Additionally, the crow dies in this world as well, you can see its bones being buried by Rakka. I felt it played into the concept that unborn children have no place in the afterlife or are stuck in Limbo forever. But the most important clue is that she needed to bury the crow; the act was her redemption. If she committed suicide while being pregnant, she had committed two capital sins, so atoning with time (period in which a Haibane lasts before either the Day of Flight or the losing of their wings) wasn't enough absolution; this also makes sense once you consider her anguish: She knows she has sinned but doesn't understand how. The crows remind her that there's something missing, and that she needs to follow that clue, i.e. Rakka didn't think that committing suicide with a baby inside was double the sin.

A while back I watched "Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita" or as it's known in English; "Really fucking long tittles are hip and cool in the industry for some stupid reason right now so lets go with that!"

The idea of the story is it takes place in a fantasy world (without real world otaku) but takes place after the deamonlord has been defeated. With peace having been restored to this world heroes and adventures have found themselves forced to integrate themselves into the rest of society. Society as a whole meanwhile has advanced and become similar to our own world's society. It's kind of like that movie Bright without lazy and half assed world building. One of the neat things is you see how the presence of magic changed and effected their technology. Basically in their world, they use magic instead of electricity to power everything. If nothing else, this anime did a good job of world building. It didn't just take the real world and make jews = elves and orcs = blacks or something stupid like that.

The interrogation of heros into this society feels a lot like it parallels with issues solders deal with after returning from war. Throughout the anime you see how they struggle with finding their place, and getting used to a life without having to constantly fight off monsters. This is of course a big part of the over all story and it's the motivation for the antagonists, who are former heroes looking to restore the world to chaos and give themselves their jobs back.
Our main character here also finds himself working along side a former enemy in the form of the daemon lord's daughter, although as it turns out she wasin't a big supporter of her father's quest to take over the world and prefers to bridge the gap between demons and everyone else, to try and bring peace and coexistence to the two sides.

The anime looked like a cute and fun work place anime much like Working! or SxS, and I was surprised by how sleazy and smutty it was. I honestly can't say I expected to see so much nudity, and the female hero (rival to the main character) had a costume design which I could only describe as ugly, stupid,

Whelp, I think it's about time I drop this. Not sure why or how I've stuck with it this long. I was mildly curious about the mystery/story behind the anime, but not only are they probably not going to answer anything anytime soon, but in retrospect it doesn't feel that interesting anymore. It might all be a dream, or maybe the game devs accidentally created a portal to another universe, who knows. I don't much care anymore to be honest and it doesn't feel like it maters much to the story anyway.

The further on this goes the more pointless it feels to have the main character be a human in an mmo when they can just have the anime be centered around some antihero demon lord in a fantasy world from the start. I wish fantasy anime could just be fantasy anime again without any of this VR otaku's after life bullshit tacked on as if they need to justify taking part in the genre. Yes there are themes here of the main character loosing his humanity, but that could easily be replicated by having the main character be a former human in this fantasy world. The real world tie in stuff is just so unnecessary, as proven by the second season which makes very little reference to it.

Gotta say, I'm not usually much for dark themes. In anime dark/violent tends to mean immature with cheesy levels of gore. It's a bit on the tame side for the most part, but I draw the line at torture girls and this is the second time such a thing comes up. At least in the first season they got it over with without dragging it out too much. From what I hear, it seems things only get worse. Season two opens with the main character nearly committing genocide just to evaluate one of his underlings. That ain't my cup of tea yo.

Personal preference aside, the show crawls at a snail's pace. Season 1 was a whole of "...do something already!!!" followed by some "...That was it?!" with not much in between. It was like watching someone take an hour to set up a chess board, take two turns, then tell you to wait a few years to see the next couple turns. It was obvious they were trying to stretch out the content they had to work with as much as they could and it was a snore fest because of it. Then you sprinkle in some fights that feel pointless due to how over powered all the characters are. No challeng

Lol, have you read Akagi?
>> No. 31040 [Edit]
>>31026
Yes, and it's a bit different. In Akagi they do indeed drag out matches and will at times make you wait for the next episode to see the rest of the match. The thing is though, you knew you were going to see the end of the match in the next ep, even if they drag it out to the end. Akagi (at least the animated version) had a had a decent conclusion at the end. The story was wrapped up in a nice little package, and it's a shame they don't do anime like that too often anymore. There's very little to suggest they'll -ever- animate the end of this anime. Much like many other anime out there that never had their endings animated, let alone anything past the first couple chapters. Now it's all about having IPs companies can milk installments out of every few years. Anime producers have been clear cutting the manga and LN fields for decades knowing full well it's an unsustainable practice, and it's catching up to them. Now dang near every anime is just a segment of a story, that combined with stretched out small amounts of content is makes this anime and others like it feel like a waste of time in it's current state.

let me rephrase. Akagi was like watching people play a complete chess match and take 15-30 minutes between moves. Overlord is watching people set up the board for an hour, make a move, then stop and tell all the people watching to go home and come back in two years. Then when you come back you find them playing dungeons and dragons and have to force them to get back to the chess match. They then make a couple moves after taking hours between each one, then tell you to come back in a few years. Mind you at this point they're still just moving pawns out of the way and don't seem to have much of a game plan.

Nice way to explain it. Sounds annoyingly boring then. I was thinking the same a few weeks ago, sooner or later the well of LNs and Manga will dry. They're already making sequels, offshoots, remakes and such of anime. The future is slightly grim.

It's not that bad. Things get a touch on the dark/serious side but it's always still light hearted in the end. I can't see any of the villains doing anything truly evil here.

Here is anichart disorganized shitball for the upcoming 2017 autumn anime season. I fell in love with this shitball when it confirmed the 2nd season of Hoozuki no Reitsu and god damn its got a lot of other good news tucked away in seemingly random locations. That foxgirl SoL at an onsen looks very promising and so does the Nekopara OVA which will probably never be subbed.

I finished watching Inuyashiki yesterday and it was quite something. The best thing about this anime is the OP (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFnF2E6nJDw) and the overall theme, but the execution can feel lacking at some points.

There is never explanation why Inuyashiki looks like 80 despite being only 58. A lot of the plot points are exalted and then wane on their own without much further exposition to make room for the plot to progress, which I think works very well for an anime that airs weekly, but becomes painfully obvious when you watch it in quick succession or with no other anime in-between. The one thing that really surprised me [SPOILERS] is how fast I went from absolutely hating the villain (i.e. "He needs to be put down, NOW") to feeling sympathy and pity for him and his surroundings, specially by the time Pubehead came along. By the end he goes down the path of evil again and the pity becomes sour when you realize he didn't try to redeem himself, he only tried to feel validated. Eventually he sacrifices himself to stop a cataclysm, by then I couldn't care less for the guy. Apart, I found the epilogue extremely sour, when Inuyashiki's daughter wins the WSJ maanga spot by adapting the villian's story, over the story adapted by the villian's friend about Inuyashiki's heroic acts. At some point I felt it having more episodes would be ideal, but also feel it wouldn't have solved the issues with how the series is written.

I wouldn't say it's an amazing anime nor the AotS, and I think it can be skipped in favour of finishing a backlog, but it's very decent nevertheless and worth a watch if you liked the OP or the Gantz manga (less so the anime, for obvious reasons).

Mine are:

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.

No, that's alright, I thought you were reffering to some other show. I did watch it but I didn't like it at all, the CG at the start already made me sick of it because I can't stand it when that is used in anime regardless of the reason for it or how it used.
