Watched the entire abridged series. By far the best thing we've watched together.
Watched in part because it became too unbearable to watch alone. 1/10
Watched one ep because it became too unbearable to watch alone. 2/10
We both watched all three seasons so mild nostalgia but unfortunately also shit. 3/10
Boring AF. Went from 5/10 to 2/10. Not even the violins could save this one.
I know a show is painfully boring when I'm gonna remember our side conversations better than the show itself. 2/10.
What we expected:
What we got:
Actually really sweet extra episode. Completely unnecessary to the story but plenty of fun and wholesome ending. 6/10
For a 60 min total runtime, was repetitive in all aspects. (Dialogue, backgrounds and animation) 3/10
Review While watching I could only think about how much worse this was than Disney's Fantasia. Also plant fetish. 3/10
Probably the worst character art I've ever seen. Nice backgrounds, music, and CGI but otherwise pretty lame. Less boring than Place Promised only because of the length, but the 6-min Dareka no Manazashi still seems like a better use of your time. 3/10
The rewatch moved this from a 6/10 to a 2/10. Beautiful to look at but I found the Ghibli-copying trashy.
Fairly well done although standard music movie. Great soundtrack and CG suspiciously difficult to detect. 7/10
Boring and confusing. The first short was at least better than the second, but both were essentially purposeless. 2/10
A Catholic and an atheist watch Saint Young Men... Both find it mildly offensive and insanely unfunny. 1/10
Extremely wacky and some of the humor was too chaotic for me. But it hardly showed that this show was based on a video game, the OVA was still very entertaining without prior knowledge. 6/10
A more drama-centered sequel that made me miss the constant chaotic humor of the first OVA. Solid directing by Simbo and great OST but nothing really amazing overall. 5/10
'This opening scene reminds me of FF X2.' ~Nekus
All around wholesome cute girls, and they actually do the cute thing. 8/10
'Are you still awake?'
Btw I'll be dropping my lo-fi single and AMV soon. 3/10
Nekus rewatched with me after I finished Shirobako. A decent enough watch but mostly for meta reasons.
If it was a real show I give Exodus somewhat of a shot but definitely drop Third Girls Aerial Squad. 5/10
Pretty weird and kinda... still in the animation but decently engaging and one good 80's track. 4/10
After 27 years, this short was finally subbed! The first short was more entertaining than the second, but both had good visuals and told a decent story in 12 minutes. 6/10
Reasons to watch this short:
Reasons not to watch it:
First full show watch attempt! ...and dropped. Very unfunny, I expected much more comedy like a Jahy or Dragon Maid, but much more urban fantasy like Blue Exorcist or Shana.
Highlights of the experience: 1) a gun 2) Mr. Nice Guy 3) butt shot replacing the foot shot in the ED.
Most eps were so uneventful we had nothing to even talk about.
The first show watch!!
Highlights: ~ L E A F ~ a very ill-fitting OST ~ KyoAni failing to make cute boys ~ the show failing to explain archery ~ ghost-sensei is not a ghost but mc's true love ~ simultaneously dramatic and boring ~ actually decent final episode
Bad news, we started talking about what show we'd watch next starting at like episode 3. Good news, I got to know Nekus a lot better from the amount of tangents we got onto. Rating based on how much I was even able to pay attention. 4/10
A waste of time. 2/10
'Fire fairy best girl.' ~Nekus
Smut plot without the sex. 2/10
Not a complete waste of time. 4/10
The second ep of this was decent, plus Kamiya. The other two were trash. 4/10
1) Magnetic Rose - 8/10
- great directing and really awesome music by Yoko Kanno
- fun fact, story is by Satoshi Kon (and I enjoyed it more than his other movies lol)
2) I don't remember the name but boring
3) I don't remember the name but boring
If you're not a completionist please just watch the first one.
Originally watched because it's music themed and from the 80s. Tape walkmans are iconic. 8/10
Just watch the show instead please. 5/10
'Is this payback for my payback for your payback?'
'Stop saying garbage.'
We'll probably forget about this in a month, but at least it was pretty watchable and delivered on the title. 4/10
Some really cool animations, backgrounds, and music but not much else. Completely useless girl mc but sick grandma, so I guess not totally misogynistic... 3/10
1st of the Rumic World Trilogy adaptations. Kinda funny reference to the title (if that was intentional). Pretty entertaining overall, 6/10 Review by Nekus
2nd of the Rumic World Trilogy adaptations. Boring and not funny. 2/10 Review by Nekus
3rd of the Rumic World Trilogy adaptations. Sick atmosphere even though it doesn't quite go anywhere. 4/10 Laughing Target
Nekus: 'DICK POISON 10/10'
Why is the blonde dude important??
"Fucking hardcore," awesome visuals, amazing sound direction. 100% would watch again. 7/10
