QUOTE (Klyern @ Oct 06 2014, 12:01 PM)Honestly i get what you are saying, about 96% of the episode was pukeworthy. I don't think the idea of showing scenes from where it all culminates to build up hype is a bad concept, but the execution and planning was awful to say the least. I'd give it 230 yen
QUOTE (Norren @ Oct 05 2014, 02:05 AM)Ah, Studio DEEN, why do you never cease to make doujin circles look AMAZING in comparison?

I shouldn't be rude to Doujin studios, Maikaze's done leagues betterlol don't forget Manpuku Jinja's MoP OVAs are even better, ok I don't mind new character design which is more detailed... but S1 has its own charm animated by Satelight, still ep.2 was hilarious with Tetra's debut and Delicious' return

Because none of the body language is sincere, all of the interactions are forced, and the pacing is subtly worse. Also, none of the scene composition is handled very well, there's too much high speed camera panning where it was never needed before.

Or, more simply: Because it's Studio DEEN.

As for this episode... During the Ready-check later on, William really should have said "Okay, AFK check, everyone that's here jump up and down.", only to be met with laughter and a bouncing Tetra.

Why did they change studios from Satelight to Studio DEEN (one of the most hated anime studios....personally, I don't mind them) for the second season?

Satelight is doing Madan no Ou to Vanadis this season...so that I know for sure if it has anything to do with the switching of studio...cause such examples switch studio for new series for anime title is nothing new, such as Full Metal Panic, Sentokai no Ichizon, Minami-ke etc...

May be it's due to studios production schedules etc?

I got nothing against Studio DEEN neither, but they haven't really delivered anything amazing for the recent years. The only anime that's close to a masterpiece by them that which I can recall is Rurouni Kenshin Tsuiokuhen (which from years ago)...and that's about it.

This Ep was better, but I had to sit there and keep from skipping past the basic raid mechanics tutorial.
(I know, I know, it's not actually common knowledge, it just feels like it from being immersed in raiding for too long.) We might get back to warm and fuzzies as soon as the plot development starts to happen now that we're starting to get into the subject of Overskills. (In print it was more clear by this point, but Nureha's "Overlay" is an Overskill.)

It's been kind of weird since they're intermixing Stray Child of Daybreak and Gold of the Kunie in pseudo-chronological order instead of book printing order.

As for the Studio DEEN hate... Studio DEEN is the variable price studio. They do have quality staff when you foot the bill for it, but usually you don't go to them for their A-team. Honestly, whoever made the poor decision to go with the Budget team instead of the A-team should be fired. This series is more than worth the money and has the international appeal to go with.

For that matter, someone's seriously asleep at the helm on merchandizing for LogHora, too. Did you notice how long it took for the OST?

Or when Crunchyroll releases it, which is every Saturday morning.

okay now im raging

did our Akatsuki get taller?

please tell me im imagining things and one of the show's lolis did not just turn into a jk xD



joke aside, the tension went up a bit in last episode, before this episode i was thinking demi would try something like knocking william's arrows just when he was interrupting the bird's instant kill move or whatever xD, but i guess its not going to be that simple given how they respawn in the entrance of the raid area.

the only thing i still cant figure out is why they would go with the same opening song for the new season, i barely know any previous examples of that happening...

Re-Gan? (sounds like a He-Man character) ;/... I watched #4 too but i didn't notice who else fell for Naotsugu, about the OP just blame Deen! let's keep hating

Of course Souji reminds you of Ruroken. He's named after Soujiro Seta of the Juppongatana.


A good chunk of the cast is named in an emulation of the way people name their MMO characters after their favorite characters from shows. Even Krusty the ClownBerserker.

We're in for a pure treat next week as the characters begin to piece together the mystery behind the Samurai and the Roderick Guild reports a VERY important discovery about the world.

True, its easy to spot when you are such a person yourself. My very first swordsman in ragnarok online was named Kenshin Klyern, so i kind of see the small similarities when i see Klein from SAO being a red headed samurai whose's name starts with K.

And Kenshin was such a popular character both outside of japan and inside when morpgs started becoming a big thing outside japan, so there are lots of people who used that name among others (there were 2 more Kenshins in the same ragnarok server im talking about too, the one were i used that name first), a lot of people using Aragorn, Frodo, Tinuviel etc at that time, im sure the first thing that comes to mind when people see William must be "LEGOLAS!! *GASP*" xD (pls tell me im not the only one).

Coincidentally there was a user in my server called Sword Arts, but he wasnt japanese... i think


There are a lot of coincidences in life, if you check "kenshin klyern" and "kamachi kazuma" have the same number of letters and initials
, its a silly coincidence but its jolly for me who is a great Kamachi-sensei fan. My favorite "authors" are (if u care); beware tldr excerpt from my profile (HnG) Kenjiro Hata, (bakemonogatari etc) NisiOisiN, (To Aru etc) Kamachi Kazuma, (JoJo) Hirohiko Akari, (Sao etc) Reki Kawahara, (Slayers etc) Hajime Kanzaka, (Shakugan no Shana) Yashichiro Takahashi, (Gundam) Yoshiyuki Tomino, (kenshin) Nobuhiro Watsuki, (YuYu Hakusho, Hunter x Hunter, Level E, seriously get better
) Yoshihiro Togashi, (FMA, Silver Spoon) Arakawa Hiromu, (Gantz, Inu Yashiki etc) Hiroya Oku, (akuma to dolce, karakuri odete, kamisama hajimemashita) Suzuki Julietta, (Akira) Katsuhiro Otomo, (Inuyasha, Ranma 1/2) Takahashi Rumiko, (freezing, kurokami) Lim Dall-young, (dbz) Akira Toriyama, and (girl saurus, bitter virgin, etc) Kusunoki Kei
in that order more or less, and will probably have to nudge Yuu Sasuga in there soon enough, only a couple of chapters in and gotta say he's godlike lol

I also said that Klein and Kenshin start with the same letter, but they also end with the same letter, same goes for my username.

On Sao topic again, i will forever keep believing that Legolas = Williams...........


ps: i tend to put whatever seems offtopic in spoiler tags, so as to not lengthen a topic too much for my ramblings, sorry for that
