This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Verb, if I may suggest some movies that you might like, Kotonoha no Niwa (The Garden of Words) which is only about three fourths of an hour long, if I recall right, was an amazing example of interpretive story telling and leaves a lot of questions to the viewer in a good way.
Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice) was an interesting, heartfelt, and for me somewhat relatable story about a cunt kid who grows up and realizes he was wrong and tries to reconcile his past with a girl he used to bully. It had it's flaws, and I'm pretty sure I'd agree with you on what the weak scenes (cinematographily speaking) would be, but I feel like you could at least give this one a 5/10.

Spice and Wolf was still great. Idk what trope you're on about. I assume you saw Holo naked and immediately cringed and thought "UGH FANSERVICE" or something
that's certainly a big part of it, there's virtually no way to make that sort of thing tolerable, especially when it's always a young attractive female and never anything else, because that wouldn't be pleasing to the assumed male audience

most of my problems with the show revolve almost entirely around holo who is one of my least favorite female characters ever

but also

>shitty, generic, unadventurous artsyle

>draw an underage girl for sex appeal
>call it a several hundred year old god so it's perfectly acceptable to jerk off and sexually exploit her

>trite "will they or won't they" type romance story with two "opposites attract" type characters

>female character does annoying shit that's supposed to be cute but it's actually just really annoying

fucking garbage

artstyle in the novels are easily better, yeah

but i'm not gonna argue about the characters personality if you're so hung up on nudity as the only defining trait. She easily has more depth than what you're making it out to be, though it's not really just her that makes the show shine. It's the interaction between the two of them that makes it great.

also the romance attraction thing isn't what you're drawing it up to be. It's not at all a generic way of two people falling in love. By the time they even admit anything, they're already accepted they love one another, it's not some bold declaration or whatever like a lot of animus do.

I already know you'll hate it because the boob grabbing

you tend to get caught up on one thing with an entire show/game and make that influence everything else even when it's not related, which is pretty flawed

Excuse me, I'm full of dog poison
I would say yu yu hakusho is just dbz with better characters with more diverse animations. So you prob wont like it at all. I must also say, while cowboy bebop is good(and the dub is fantastic)... it's overrated. If you ever get through your list (which theres a lot of shitty ones in there) i say give trigun a shot(pun intended). The first 5 episodes are kinda slow with a lot humor but things really do pick up at the end of ep 5.

imo

trigun > cowboy bebop



Outlaw star though

never seen it

I have a thing for space cowboys. It's worth the watch.

I'm calling this week "Attack of the Boring as Fuck Anime."

These reviews are probably going to seem very repetitive, because I have relatively similar takes for all of them.



Cowboy Bebop (Sunrise, 1908, thirteen-and-a-half episodes) "Overrated" is a word that I'd like to keep myself from using too often in these, but I'm struggling to find another word that oh-so-perfectly defines this show. However, my little reactionary weebs—that doesn't mean there was nothing about the show that I enjoyed. The coolly distinct atmosphere and lowkey tone of the series was what kept me going for as long as I did, and though I'm not terribly into jazz, I felt like it was a pretty good fit for this series. It gave a lot of scenes an "oddly satisfying" feel. That said, the characters are all annoying as fuck (especially—surprise, surprise—our female leads, Faye and Edward) and I don't give a fuck about any of them. The story isn't very engaging, and I couldn't help but ask myself, "What's the point?" after every "session" (the show's little pretentious way of saying "episode"). That said, it's still probably one of the better shows I've partially trudged through. I think it's rather telling how the best-of-the-best anime always seem to be inspired by Western styles, ideas, or sensibilities. I still don't have the heart to finish it, though. Sorry. 5/10

Your Name (CoMix Wave Films, 2016) You'd think the film's roaring international success in the West would give me high hopes, but I tend to be very cautious whenever I hear that people like something, because I find that most people are very easily impressed. A film that the average person would rate an 8/10, I would probably give that film a 6/10. Not always, but that does tend to be the case. Likewise, whereas most people found Your Name to be beautiful and original, I found it incredibly insipid, predictable, and anything BUT original. This movie is every boy-meets-girl story ever made, but with a silly Freaky Friday premise. OH BOY, MY FAVORITE. Our two subject characters are so cookie-cutter—having relatable characters is absolutely fine, especially in stories like these, but not when they're so fucking drab to the point where you can't NOT relate with them. And while the plot itself didn't really have any glaring issues that I could see, its biggest issue is that it doesn't actually take any risks. The risks it does take are of the safest and most predictable variety. I'm not gonna spoil anything, but I genuinely don't understand why so many people are claiming that the twists are "unexpected." I guess you just need to watch more movies, or something, because I was about twenty minutes ahead the entire time. At least one of you was suspecting that I'd rate this film low strictly because of the scene where the boy, in the girl's body, starts feeling her breasts—and don't get me wrong, it was annoying and cringeworthy to watch, and extremely unnecessary. But I don't actually have a huge problem with it, given the circumstances. If a guy and a girl swapped bodies, it's very realistic to assume that the guy would start groping himself. It's still gross to show it in a movie, but the film had far more pressing issues than that. Overall, it's a very dull and unadventurous flick that commits many-a-sin, falling apart especially during the third act. Even the music was sucky and unmemorable. That being said, I'm about to do something I haven't done before, but I'm being absolutely genuine: I'm actually going to recommend this film to pretty much everybody—because, despite my own criticisms, I still expect most of you idiots to eat it up anyway, since most people have. So go ahead, watch it if you haven't already. Knowing how you people are, you'll all love it. I practically guarantee it. 4/10

Yu Yu Hakusho (Pierrot, 1992, six episodes) Perhaps this show invokes the Seinfeld Effect, but this is the most boring anime I've ever seen, and I certainly don't see myself sitting through 100 episodes of it. Indeed, I decided to drop it relatively early upon realizing just how long it was. I was told by many people that I'd like it based solely on the fact that it contains "no fanservice," which, 1.) that's almost always complete and utter bullshit, and 2.) I need WAY more reasons than that to enjoy a show, guys. Like an interesting plot, for starters. I know it's a shonen—and a particularly old one at that—and I know that there's an appeal for things like simplicity and "doing what works," but that's no excuse for the story being so bland. These days, it has nothing to set it apart from modern shonen, and I don't think that's an unfair comparison when it had DBZ to compete with back in its day. It resultantly suffers from its poor aging, and unfortunately, there's absolutely nothing about it that grips me enough to keep watching. 3/10



Trying Baccano! next + a couple more films.

I only recommend Your Name because it's not shit, which is kind of a sad standard to set for anime. It could've been an hour shorter and nothing would have been lost. The last act dragged on for way too long.

Hey neat

Out of all these, I think I'll be most disappointed if Baccano! doesn't work for you. It's what made me think I could actually enjoy anime. Are you planning on dub, sub, or a mix of both?

hmm

everything i've watched thus far has been subbed

i normally prefer dubs, but sometimes they're not available, and i get to avoid people saying shit like, "you only hated it because you watched the shitty dub!!!" so now they can't say shit like that

Baccano! has a solid dub. Maybe try one episode of both? I haven't tried the subs, but I imagine they're just fine.

Seconded, but be warned that the first half is very episodic and things centralize after that.

Try the dub. They go for the Italian Gangster kinda look with everything and the dubs nail the accents perfectly. You'll lose all that with the subs.
