Hi,

I'm actually more of a tea person. I like to take photos of birds among other things. I live a modest life, happily getting by on a day-to-day basis. I've spent hundreds of hours travelling on trains. I am a music fan before anything and I also enjoy classic literature and foreign cinema. Food is also one of the best things in life.

I volunteer as a character and people moderator here on Anime-Planet so it's possible you're reading this because I left you a comment in regards to a submission.

I'm hoping to use the blog feature here more frequently in the future. I like to submit reviews when I can though I don't expect many to read them as they can be very long. I could make typing an Olympic sport.

My star ratings are based on a system of absolute jack shit.

Hi dere. Don't mind me, just in ur list and reading ur recs. :3

So in terms of enjoying the drama, you would feel that Kokoro Connect (so far) falls below, for instance, Kimi ni Todoke? (I wasn't kidding when I said I hadn't seen a lot of drama anime in these settings, it'll have to do for a comparison point. Or screw comparisons and just pick your favourites if you prefer; you have more watched than I do, after all.)

While I'd certainly call Todoke the more realistic of the two and I definitely enjoyed the interesting focus on the gossip in both seasons, I honestly found the pacing to be glacial. I felt like it almost fell apart at several points, the biggest being season one's ending. For me Kokoro Connect is much more enjoyable in this fashion.

You specifically mentioned being disatisfied with the way the dialogues are written there; personally I find the much more engaging than the absolute utter lack of introspection Sawako is capable of. (Granted, my own high school expeirence probably took from the worse of both extremes, and I found myself perhaps less moved by her mistakes and experiences than I perhaps could be objectively - whereas the way Kokoro's protagonists go straight for what they want struck me as rather refreshing.)

Sorry for the late reply.

It was indeed obvious that there were demons involved because it was shown in the first episode. What does fail though, is the transition from the main storyline to the demon ending.

Griffith is in a prison, he's torchered so hard that he's cripple and weak, they recue him aaaaand theres demons. Well that escalated quickly!

Hey

I just caught a nice cold, so I think I'll be watching on the weekend anyway since that's about the only thing I can do :P Feel free to join in on the conversation if you like, and ask if Funkgun would be willing to watch it with you later.

Cheers,

Menchi

Hello!

Sorry about the delay. How'd you feel about marathoning Silver Fang this weekend, from friday to sunday? There's another catch up-marathon coming up next weekend, so I'd like to try and finish this before that :)

I'll ask Funkgun as well if he'd be up for it.
