    ‘Apocrypha: The Legend of Babymetal’

    Saw this review on JapanTimes today.... seemed interesting for such a project. Anyone see it? https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2018/11/24/books/book-reviews/apocrypha-legend-babymetal-triumphant-artistic-manifestation-babymetal-hits/ Books / Reviews | RECENTLY PUBLISHED BOOKS ABOUT JAPAN...

    Boku no Hero Academia 5th Series

    Finished S3.... this is actually a pretty good anime in this genre.... other than those moments in which the opponents want to talk a bit before their final attacks... Silly, but everyone does that... so it's hard to complain too much... and in this one, those scenes aren't every episode.... so...

    Boku no Hero Academia 5th Series

    If I remember correctly, the All for One 'bad guy' wasn't directly involved in that S1 finale, but his 'trainee'... which I think All for One wants to take over.... up to S3 ep 10 that I saw, All for One wasn't directly involved... on the scene... ep 9 might have had his trainee bad guy group...

    Boku no Hero Academia 5th Series

    S3?... I sort of stopped on ep 10.... after that cliche 'escape' of the 'bad guys'.... and after the previous eps bad guys attack in the forest.... C'mon.... no security? Anyone can follow the kids home... to school... follow their buses out to that forest etc.... But this show is targeted to a...

    Boku no Hero Academia 5th Series

    On ep 5... I can see what everyone means about using every tool of the genre.... Green Lantern parallel just showed up.... but not in a bad way... as it provides background for the situation rather well... and fast, since the viewer already knows it from the others... so far, it works... reminds...

    Boku no Hero Academia 5th Series

    Saw this on someone's watch list.... in 3rd season or whatever.... what is the opinion now? The premise reminds me of so many of course, but mostly of the Disney live action film... Sky High... but in that, the kid has 2 superhero parents.... there are so many of these magical academy projects...

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    Season 30? :huh: So, no use of the 'key' yet? and the milkmaids are kept busy like with Naruto? :ph34r: that must be the plan for everyone though, right? Surely any tv show here in the States dreams of a 10yr run.... and all that money from reruns that follow. So, I can't blame them, but...

    Love Live! Sunshine!! (2016-19)

    Why did you post a quote only? :huh: That said, these always end rather well, though the closing song could've been better... was it just me who thought the original Love Live had better songs? Have I gotten used to this genre so this series seems a little pale in comparison, at least in terms...

    Love Live! Sunshine!! (2016-19)

    Finally caught up with S2 ep 12... one more to go to finish the season... the story got a lot better as I said above after they finally added some drama into the storyline to separate it from the original... and they even used that when explaining the difference in the competition ... how some...

    Love Live! Sunshine!! (2016-19)

    Interesting.. ep, #8 has finally introduced the drama of reality.... getting no votes, how the contest has changed etc.... the pain on which to build stronger, better characters... finally something... setup for quite a while for later affect.... the dubbed VAs are a little screechy at times...

    Love Live! Sunshine!! (2016-19)

    Having trouble with S1 of this... same plotline... high school is the 'principal' or whatever they call it? just cause her family is rich... :wacko: :blink: :rolleyes: Seems a copycat show... from the same production team i suppose, so just an attempt to make easy money off the fans?... sort of...

    Love Live! Sunshine!! (2016-19)

    I'm a little curious, so I'm checking out S1 of this sequel... liked the first set of Love Live... very cute... the odd thing was that the girls didn't continue with it... wasn't that odd? Why write that into the plot? So instead they started from scratch out in a smaller city?.... as an...

    Love Live! Sunshine!! (2016-19)

    I prefer the more real idolmaster over the love live fantasy stuff, but the song and dance shows usually work if the songs aren't too bad. I can see why they keep putting them out.

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    Yeah, just watched that last sub ep #37.... the dub is so far behind... .but the dub is rather good, I'd rather watch it... but I caught up on the sub.... it is well done, but they are definitely 'milking' this thing.. but then all authors who can, do .. in this genre or is it an age thing? a...

    Pixar's "Inside Out"

    Just watched the 2015 Pixar animated film "Inside Out"... surprising very well done... not the animation, nor kid focused storyline, but the way the story is told through the 'emotions' portrayed by characters that interact... I never heard of it before... but the box office was rather good...

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    ep 31? or you referring to the manga chapter count? I just watched the dub up thru 3p 4... yes, I prefer to experience the anime/storytelling in a language I don't have to read... so essentially, the same experience a native Japanese viewer would experience it as.... that said, they are...

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    Just watched ep1 S2 of the eng dub... and I read the Wikipedia entry on this.. which makes the writer's storyline sound stupid... like it's all some gimmick...or stupid.... and they are still not dealing with the key around his neck, if it's still there... C'mon man, this is getting stupid...

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    Ah, you're talking about S2 already.... so more exposition? I think the dubbed version is out tomorrow or soon.... seems a good dub, so I'd rather wait... so much easier to watch in your own language.. unless the dub is bad or a studio that uses a very limited VA group for all their projects, as...

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    Finished S1.... and it ends with a look at that key around his neck... WTH they didn't go there first seems like a writing decision to milk the action at least until S2... overall the writing is rather good, though the usual writing copouts to get characters setup or scenes going in a certain...

    Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season & Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

    Just started watching S1... for this genre, it's rather well done...mostly in terms of story where it counts, as the animation looks normal, and the characters the same, essentially another high school class defending the school/country/people. The Titans are a wee bit over the top, would love...
