The question is, did Verb watch the dub or sub
Quote from: Jester on July 01, 2018, 10:52:53 AMThe question is, did Verb watch the dub or subi exclusively watch subs, specifically to avoid the issue of having to deal with faggots telling me i didn't watch the show right because of what language i chose to view it onso you can't play that card on methat being said, dubs are generally better anyway
You did watch Yu Yu Hakusho dubbed though, right?
Quote from: Lady on July 01, 2018, 11:53:15 AMYou did watch Yu Yu Hakusho dubbed though, right?i don't think so, should i?the only dubs i've been told to watch were the ones for baccano and golden boy, plus anything i wasn't able to find subs for onlinenot trying to ignore your other post btw, there's just quite a few things to unpack
I honestly don't know why you feel as strongly as you do about it, and going over your review of it, don't feel like we watched the same thing at all. The only thing that I can really acknowledge among your complaints was the artstyle (even if I 90% disagree with it). What made no sense about the plot? Part I is very straightforward and simple (negatively so) and Part II is strange and admittedly has so weird retcons and workarounds, but in a template makes perfect sense.Voice acting is a bit subjective; I enjoyed it most of the time.What characters did you find so dull and annoying? Outside of Jonathan being a Kenshiro clone and Speedwagon's power of narration, I can't think of anybody particularly dull.
A 0/10 anime, on the other hand, is not necessarily something that I think everyone should hate—it's merely an expression of personal hatred (albeit to the maximum extent that my heart will allow).
That said, the higher scores I've given are the ones I wish people would take seriously. It's practically an event when I actually enjoy something, and I'd rather have people feel good that I enjoyed something rather than feel bad that I didn't.
Anyway, back to Jojo's before I start rambling. Given the parameters I've laid out, I think my rating of 0/10 is perfectly appropriate and I don't intend on changing my mind—until I see the newer show, but since it looks just as shitty, I may just end up doubling down on that.
Basically, there's nothing about the show that I like, and that's that. The art style really is, without exaggeration, the most hideous thing I've ever seen in all of animation.
When I criticized the plot for not making sense, I was mostly referring to Part II—but admittedly, that probably wasn't the best phrasing on my part. It was one of the earlier "reviews" I wrote up for this thread, and I remember typing it up pretty hastily (as I do often). What I really meant is that the plot was just stupid and bad, and I do seem to recall it being rife with dumbass plotholes that really don't make any sense, the more I think about it. Shining example: Not destroying the red stone thing because of some hand-wavy prophecy bullshit pulled out the ass at random. I know there's more, but they're not coming to me right now.
I realize that "bizarre" is in the title of the show. But you know what word isn't in the title? Obnoxious. I've seen and enjoyed weird shows—I encourage weirdness. What I don't encourage is characters pulling weapons and other random shit out of nowhere like some dumb kid's show.
The voice acting is intolerable—I don't know how to describe it, but the way all the characters intone almost EVERY line of dialogue just makes my stomach churn. And it gets worse than they start speaking English. Joseph is supposed to be an English speaker, yet they can't even get someone who actually knows how to speak English to say the lines. It's pathetic.
As for characters I find dull, there's Jonathan, Caesar, Lisa Lisa, Speedwagon, Kars, the pillar men, and a few others. Nothing interesting about any of them, and even though Lisa Lisa has the least offensive design I've seen so far, the fact that she's only in the show for one goddamn reason pisses me off.As for characters I find annoying, literally everyone else. I hate them all, especially Joseph and Dio. Characters are more or less the last bastion—the very last leg your show can stand on if I hate everything else. If I don't like your characters, it's a death knell.
I guess it seems more queer solely because of the expectations behind a 0/10 score, such as that for things that are unwatchable for reasons beyond the allowable/ "broken" shows. The closest tv show I can think of would probably be that one about that Fred youtuber from like a decade ago. Not just bad looking, not just boring, not just inane, but so revolting at its core that nobody should watch it. But this is your system, and specifically the system for looking at your personal enjoyment of this stuff. It's perfectly valid, but still a bit deceptive.
But there's one thing you didn't mention among the things you disliked: the music. Surely that is the one and only quality that you didn't find horrific?
thinking about making this thread again, but for western animationit will be a lot more positive (especially with regards to disney)but maybe that's boring and no one cares? idkpart of why i hate anime in general is because western animation is just SO MUCH better, and i thought it might be fun to explore that, even if it's redundant

the one true God is Doctor Doom and we should all be worshiping him.

MAL has 121 entries between the years 1917 and 1959—and considering most of these animations have probably been lost over time, we can probably chop that down to about 60 to 90so when i'm done with the '90s, i think i'm actually going to clear up that era next, because it should be easy and quick, and i'll call it the pre-astro boy eraalso if you couldn't tell i'm taking a break from this shit, i haven't watched an anime in weeks
The Wind Rises?
Quote from: Turkey on July 27, 2018, 09:33:09 AMThe Wind Rises?6/10tied with princess mononoke (which i also rewatched and decided i was too harsh with) for my favorite miyazaki
NeatI found that the subdued fantastical elements and themes led me to enjoy it more than other Miyazaki films. You've covered every anime I've seen, so I look forward to trying some that you recommend. I watched Ergo Proxy after you rated it, and I'm planning to give Evangelion a try.
so my dad comes home from a local flea market with 50~ anime vhs tapesthree of them are evangelion tapes with two episodes each
he bought them to his own accord at complete random
