Well Katanagatari and Tatami Galaxy they have excellent artwork indeed. You could use pictures from 5 cm/s/Voices from a Distant Star or AnoHana/AnoNatsu instead, since they are all exceptionals Slice of Life anime with especially really good animation and artwork. I think you got my point, and I got yours so let it be.
I think AnoHana was all about friendship and the supernatural fact of a ghost girl was a nice touch in a typical slice of life anime story, so I found it an inappropriate example in a horror anime review. You could use the new anime Tasogare Otome x Amnesia or any other horror anime with ghosts. Just my opinion. I may have watched the half anime than you, but remember we have 10 years difference. Also I watched most of the anime on my list during 1 year, so I am in a good way to keep up with you. And one more thing: When I'm looking for a new anime, I focus in every aspect, animation, story, soundtrack, character designs etc, so I avoid crappy and uninteresting anime as much as I can. That's the reason my list is still low.
I noticed you've left a few profile comments about 'going to war' on someone else's review. It could be that I misunderstood the meaning of this, and if so, I apologize for the assumption.
If in fact the purpose is to organize harassment on someone else's review, I have to ask that you stop, immediately. That's not the kind of environment Anime-Planet is about - everyone is entitled to their opinion and this is a safe, friendly place to post those opinions. Healthy, respectful discussion is fine too, of course. If you dislike someone's review that much, you can post your own review.
“And you don't "feel" it was generic and predictable? That was my comment.”
No, I don’t. I ENJOYED the show, the characters, and the story itself.
“Nothing that is made for the masses is wonderful.”
That’s some twisted logic, in that you are twisting my words. When I said that you seem to "look down on people that have put their essence into creating wonderful pieces of entertainment for the masses" I was talking about all makers of anime as a whole. I was comparing you to a critic- not a reviewer. There’s a massive difference between the two. Just in case you don’t know the difference, let me explain. A critic, by definition can say anything they want to about their subject matter and it doesn’t have to be backed by any kind of logical explanation. A reviewer, on the other hand, MUST use logical explanations to back up their comments.
“Unless you can enjoy any shit they offer on your plate then yes, I have a few don'ts when watching a show.”
And that is YOUR opinion that you should be posting on YOUR review. We are here to review anime, search for anime we might like, recommend anime that we like based on similarities, and ultimately to give props to the anime that we like. Oh, and I believe it says on my profile: “I love almost ALL anime.”
“Too bad because people are free to comment on them.”
I am painfully aware of this fact. You make the assholes out there proud.
"I am not the one who uses words incorrectly and misinforms the rest of the readers…So when I said MEH is literally meant USE THE WORDS CORRECTLY AND STOP ELEVATING CRAP!“
IT'S MY OPINION! I feel that the story is EPIC because it spans ONE THOUSAND years. No, they don't go into a lot of detail on those thousand years. Yes, the show has a similar story-line to several other anime. HEY, GUESS WHAT? SO DO ALL ANIME. Idiot. Just to show you that I am not the one misusing words here, I copied the definition of epic. See for yourself: "noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style."
“…you say you don't like me busting your bubble of tasteless evaluation?” Tasteless evaluation? Here, again, I shall remind you that “taste” is a matter of opinion. Mine, yours, and everyone else’s individual preferences. I like an anime you don’t like. SO MAKE YOUR OWN REVIEW. I’ll come over to your review of this anime and I’ll “Meh” you right back.
“You are the death of quality anime…while real masterpieces are extinct because casuals like you prefer shit!"
Well, I am so sorry that 99% of people interested in anime around the world DON’T AGREE with YOU. I am sorry that the makers of anime don’t agree with you. I guess you might say that we see it differently. Perhaps we think that if you have YOUR way, it will be the death of quality anime. Oh by the way…extinct isn’t a word you should use here…I guess you have all your words mixed up. Let me school you once more. “Extinct: 1. no longer in existence; that has ended or died out. 2. no longer in use; obsolete.” As I recall, your “epic” Tatmi Galaxy was made just under 2 years ago. 2 years doesn’t exactly sound very “extinct” to me, let alone the fact that people still watch anime from as far back as 1928 (or further)…such as Momotaro the Undefeated or Mighty Taro’s Reckless Training.
No longer in existence? No. No longer in use? No. Obsolete? No.
You are wrong on all counts.
“And all that because you didn’t like my MEH!”
Of course I didn’t like your “Meh” comment. How about giving a decent, intelligent, and courteous response? Ever seen Bambi? “If you don’t have anything nice to say,” then shut the f*** up!
When we're talking about an anime artwork will be from the character designs till the animation. But the exaples of artwork you used just are not the right ones, am I clear? You just can't use this kind of art in an animation, 'cos if you could, wouldn't be possible to make a 13+ episodes series. I agree with your review about Another in general, but you mixed some things together that just can't fit. I just couldn't keep myself from criticising, probably because these kind of stuff are actually my work, sorry.
About AnoHana, I just saw a really bad critique in only a couple of sentences, in a review that couldn't fit.
Hey man, just wanted to say you have some pretty awesome and detailed reviews which I find rare for this site. Think you might be being a little too harsh sometimes especially on some of the older 80's and 90's stuff. Your forgetting that animes made in 2010+ can draw inspiration from almost 40 years of other animes. I just don't feel like older animes should be rated using the same standard. Anyway keep doing what your doing.
