yeah, because it makes it that much easier to consume as much shit as humanly possible

all at the expense of the art itself, but they don't care because their time is valuable

I honestly can't picture the person who would do this.

1999 looks like it's gonna be a slog

i have a plan for catching up with 2018, though—if it's a light novel adaptation, i'm gonna skip it

i might have said this already, but after 1999, i'm not gonna move forward to 2000—instead, i'll go backwards and do 1994, just so i can clear out all of the '90s

how many people can say they've tried every single '90s anime

ajin was one of the most popular when it came out so you'll probably watch it anyway if you're going for the biggest of each year

maybe watch it right after tokyo ghoul because it's often said to be the latter done correctly

What is 1984 about?
Power of propaganda? Communism? Mass surveillance?

WRONG
If you read the book it's about nothing but a fat middle aged man repeatedly having sex with a 16 year old girl. The book goes into great detail into how and how often they conduct their sex life.
Like shameless anime porn, but instead of scorn it's considered art

Weird how they always forget to adapt that part into the movies...

If you swing the way of ongoing manga, Houseki no Kuni is fantastic.

I don't think the anime would be for you; the adaptation is chock full of annoying "anime-isms" in terms of style and is CG animated too [though the last bit isn't a problem IMO]. The universe is fascinating though. The mechanics of the world deliver a coming of age plot so creatively it's jealousy inducing if you've ever tried to write a COA story.

can't say i care to start reading manga, much less ongoing ones—i enjoy the security of knowing that i'm about to jump into a completed story, and that i won't be sitting on a boat for 7 years with a bunch of other fans waiting for the next volume, and on top of that, i have enough "real" literature to catch up on before i start reading some random japanese comics

i appreciate the recommendation, though

are you recommending this because you think I in particular would like it, or are you recommending it just because you like it

Mainly the latter, but I recommended it specifically because the manga doesn't really adhere to the medium's tropes. And yeah, I can sympathize with your issues about ongoing series.

i have some score updates

i wanted to wait until i had at least five of these, but i'll just do it now because i came close enough

evangelion: 6 -> 7, possible new AOTY for 1995 (in competition with magnetic rose)
perfect blue: 6 -> 7
princess mononoke: 4 -> 6
golden boy: 7 -> 6

evangelion is one of those shows that i want to love, but i still feel it gets bogged down by a couple bothersome anime-isms that i can't easily forgive—it's a show that gets better the more i think about it, though, and i can't say the same for pretty much anything else

perfect blue is similar in that it gets better the more i watch it

i was being pretty unfair with princess mononoke, it's probably my new favorite ghibli film now to be honest

in retrospect, my high rating for golden boy was probably a little overzealous—i feel like i should completely rearrange my 1995 list, it still has the same everything but in a completely different order (#3. GB, #2-1. MR or NGE, not sure yet)

i rewatched crybaby for the third time, and though i really really wanted to give it my first ever 9, i did wind up noticing a couple things about it that bog it down just slightly—not big enough to mention, but big enough to keep it at a higher 8 for the time being

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
you liked perfect blue? that was legitimately hard to watch due to being so fucked up

can (or should) a bad OP and/or ED affect the quality of a show, or at least your opinion of it

would you say a good OP/ED boosts a show, or are they of any consequence at all

Well, I didn`t see good show with bad OP, so that tells me a lot.

I remember you already answered that question for yourself, so why you wonder about opinions of others?
