•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸こんにちは! ¸.•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•

I haven't been as timely with replies lately. I'm so sorry! I've just been busy!

Ratings are hard! I have rated so many things 3, and now I'm thinking that I need to sort them out. I need to either move more things up to 3.5 or lower more to 2.5. Whenever I get some time I will probably go through my ratings. Blah.

Larkawolfgirl's 2016 Anime Challenge- Open to everyone

About: You must watch all seasons of all listed anime in 2016 to complete the challenge. I chose some of my personal favorites as well as some I have not watched yet. Series are from various genres for diversity. Just tell me if you want to participate in the challenge and I will add you to the list of participants.

Rules:

  1. You must watch all 40 series listed here.
  2. If you don't mind, please mention my challenge on your profile to help spread the word (as well as fun!) 
  3. You don`t have to rewatch anything you already completed.
  4. A good way to keep track of the series is to create a custom list like the one I did.
  5. Feel free to discuss any of the anime listed with me, since as I said, these are some of my favorites.
  6. When you finish let me know. I will check to make sure you did finish everything, and then your name will be listed as a winner forever on my profile ^.^

Participants: Sianeka, Majishan, KareemBadawyIzayoiSAKAMAKIanimelover571casandra29BoochanChurri

People who completed the challenge:

This challenge was inspired by ScarletRain's. Please check her's out as well! (I am participating in her's as well).

I'm a college student who wastes most of her life thinking about fictional characters. I like all genres, but my favorites tend to be action, romance, fantasy, sci fi, and yaoi.

Basically my life--as well as this page--is full of inconsistencies. I don't really have any defined standards by which I rate things (mostly it is based on the plot and my overall level of enjoyment).

Dria-chan, you must forgive me because i'm an idiot sometimes :-) when you said ayakashi, i went here. So, you can understand the sentence on eroge :-)

Finished the challenge, I will watch your ayakashi :-) I guess there are also at least 2 anime similar to mononoke. XXXholic and Jikoku shoujo. I dropped them, even if i'm interested in how they tell about human behavior and fears. A little bit repetitive.

I see your review about the movie of beyond the boundary. I not read it. But I'm curious. However, the guy with scarf and sister complex is awesome :-) The other movie of beyond the boundary? How is it?

Ayakashi? Never heard, but if only the anime based on eroge are an half of EF ... How is it?

I continue with Beyond the Boundary :-) Better than expectation :-) But i can't yet to define it a real drama (only a 6/12)

Larkawolfgirl says...  Oh, I'm not actually taking them all at once. Udemy lets you watch lectures at your own pace. Plus, aside from a few quizzes and bonus material that the instructors can choose to include, the courses are just videos and short bits of text. I was actually feeling very positive about my development and direction until yesterday. In one of my actual college classes we had to look up book publishing jobs, and I saw that Penguin is hiring a manga editor. Plus, I meet all the job requirements. But I don't want to move to New York T.T. The job description mentioned something about freelance manga editors, so I may email them to ask if I could apply to do that :). Though, my career coach at school said that there actually is a publishing company I could apply for where I do plan on moving. However, it is Catholic and I'm not. But, from the sound of it, not all the books are religious, more self-improvement books.

You should definitely check out the company where you plan to live, regardless of the religious affiliation.  As you said, it is likely that not all of the books are religious in nature. (However, a big metropolis like NYC will often have the most jobs available as a lot of the big publishing houses are located there.)

Just curious, why did you let the location of the Penguin job sour you on feeling positive about your career development and direction?

Larkawolfgirl says...  That is true. Kurapika is barely shown at all after the Yorknew arc. On the final episode it just shows him sitting in a suit with a cellphone without any context. It gave me a strange feeling, and I was very intrigued thinking the manga would explain that that scene had some importance, but it didn't. I feel like Kurapika started out being a good friend but then tumbled further and further away. He is finally part of the main story again, but his personality seems to have shifted a lot from the beginning.

Does the 2011 version show much of why Kurapika drifts in his own direction?  I mean, the original showed that he was focused on getting his revenge and thus moves away from his former pals, but he's still a part of Gon's friendship team even after.  I'm really interested in seeing more and comparing the two versions.

Larkawolfgirl says...  Oh god. One Piece is the one thing I could never handle watching everything of. We finally sat down to watch some again yesterday, and ended up skipping ten episodes. We just skimmed through two of the episodes to see Chopper. We both agreed last night that though we like aspects of the show, Chopper is the only thing really keeping us going XD. One Piece makes me sad, because I really like bits of it. I was literally addicted during the Nami, Alabasta, and Robin arcs. Aside from those, the Chopper arc, the Summit War arc, and select few episodes, I have found it quite boring and ridiculous. We only have a little bit over a hundred episodes to catch up now, though :D Where are you in the manga?

I'm still early in the story, haven't gotten very far.  (For instance, I know which character is Chopper, but haven't met him/seen him yet, and can hardly believe he is a character that can make an episode worth watching!  To an outsider, who hasn't yet encountered him and isn't famliar with the character, he seems like a throwaway non-essential sidekick type of character. (I'm only up to Chapter 100 (Vol. 12) in the manga so far.)
