Re: Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Personally I do consider flashbacks to be filler. It's just a matter of how excessive they get. In HxH we get a flashback episode every now and then, I'm fine with that. With Naruto(and One Piece was...

Re: Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Meh, I'm not worried about pacing in the new HxH yet.

I am surprised to see that there is such a debate over which anime is better... really? They're telling the same story, with the same...

Re: Campione

That's probably the case, but with a series like this "show, don't tell" makes more sense.especially when you consider that the other fights were dragged out a bit, yet they manage to skip over what...

Re: Campione

Which left me confused as hell since...
why would they have fights off screen? This is a fighting/action show, and they're referencing off-screen events by the 5th episode? Between that and the...

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam AGE

This series just irritates me. The time jumps(just when you finally start to care about characters, nope here's the next set) I got used to. The art style REALLY put me off at first, but I got used...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

I'm not saying 15 years ago there was no school-grade anime. There was still less of it, compared to everything else. Yes, there's also a large number of little kids shows that rarely get fansubbed,...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

I never said there had to be some quantum unified theory of why so many animes revolve around schoolkids. But saying "Umm, schoolkids like anime with schoolkids just because" doesn't answer it....

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

Wow, what is up with you guys and not reading and wanting to just flame instead?

I never claimed all anime series were highschool themed. I thought that was very clear in original post of this...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

Yes, but there are even more PG-13 movies that broadly appeal to viewers in the 13-17 age range, yet don't revolve around 15 year old characters. And a lot of anime would probably easily get lumped...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

Yes, but why is it seemingly impossible to make games that appeal to this same age range without making the characters be in that same age range? Look at movies, at least in the US a movie directed...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

They might not be in school, but they're still schoolkids as far as I'm concerned. After having watched the entire first series, there's at least 1 gradeschooler in the harem, and 2 out of 3 of the...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

That explains the nonstop fanservice in some shows, but it still doesn't explain the constant highschool themes. And yes, obviously the highschool themes must be selling, but again the question is...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

You see, I thought about the whole "but a lot of anime viewers in Japan are schoolkids" and that makes sense to a degree, but at the same time they aren't the ones with the disposable income to buy...

Re: Why so many shows about schoolkids...

Yeah, there are indeed "alternatives" but like I said, it seems that in the past few years they're increasingly few and far between.

Why so many shows about schoolkids...

Did the adult anime audience in Japan just switch to hentai or something?

Highschool of the dead: schoolkid panty shots
Nurarihyon no Mago: schoolkids
Occult academy: schoolkids

Re: Nurarihyon no Mago

This is one of the better schoolkid shows at this point in the season, but man... so sick of schoolkid shows. I want to see demons fighting eachother, not a 12 year old in school.

Re: Shukufuku no Campanella

The art is boring, the character designs are generic, the animation is boring(lots of still scenes with the camera just panning across).

Ugh, and the character design... I saw Carina and the first...

Re: Katanagatari

Re: Katanagatari

Yes, and the simple style of the artwork makes conveying something like that all the better. Like I said before, this series ranks WAY up there on my most favorite shows of all time, and it seems...
