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.

Hello!

 

You displayed some interest in watching two shows that I suggested in the FYAB thread. A few others seem to be interested in Haibane Renmei, so perhaps we should begin with that? Afterwards, if you're still interested, I'd personally be glad to see 'Rainbow'.

Both of us seem to be somewhat busy, but at the moment I think I could manage 1 episode per day. Would that work out for you? I'll contact the others as well and see what they think.

Hello.I've read  your comment only after I've finished submitting the pics so I apologize if I've submitted anything after you've told me to stop.

I've read the rules regarding image submissions and there isn't anywere specfied that close-up aren't allowed or at least I didn't notice the mention.

Regarding the size of the images the only one that wasn't respecting the size requirements was the one depicting Attenborough.It's height was indeed to small but I've submitted it because as you've mentioned  the old one wasn't respecting this requirement either.

My only intention was to improve the quality of the images,as most of the existing ones we're very pixelated.I apologize for any inconveniences.

Sorry for the belated response. I’m attending BSA NCS in the middle of Nowhere, North Carolina, so internet access is a little limited.

I really made that list for titles that I constantly get asked about (online and in person), and you're the first person to ask about Beserk. Honestly, my problem with Beserk was entirely on my end. I've never really cared for high fantasy as a whole (with a few very scarce exceptions), and I really didn’t care for the character designs as a whole. As for its status as a Manga adaptation; I'm of the mind that yes, an anime’s source manga can be used to gauge certain aspects, but I get angrier at anime that rely on the audience having read the associated manga or that simply make straight adaptations even when certain elements don’t translate well from one media to another. I prefer adaptations that can stand on their own as a separate work and benefit from the presence of the source material rather than relying on it.

Final FantasyVII is also is partially on my end; I simply never enjoyed the games (I prefer games where the player directly controls characters rather than commanding them, hence why I’ve never really enjoyed strategy games). However, another part of my distaste goes back to what I said earlier about source material; I’ve never played the game, so it was nearly impossible for me to follow what was going on, and the crash course at the beginning just kind of made things worse. If a movie is adapted from a game/movie/comic/etc, I belive that it should (a) be entertaining on its own merits, and (b) make the viewer want to try out the related media afterwards. FFVII did neither for me.

 

 

PS: I seem to have been banned from even viewing the forums at some point over the past five days. Any idea when and/or why this happened?

Thanks a lot for the criticism, I found it very helpful!

As for the Anme itself, I don't see the point of debating it either; I doubt we'd ever reach a conclusion. Shows like Shigurui can be discussed for all eternity, it still comes down to a matter of taste. I'm considering picking up the manga though. I've heard it's a lot better, and if it can be disturbing without ultraviolence, all the better!
