Berserk really blazed past Farnese and Serpico's backstories. The one thing which confused me was why it was not mentioned that Farnese's mother was burned as a heretic. It's a really important part of Farnese's history and goes a long way to explain why she is such a psychopath. But I guess they wanted to get the band together quickly. There's a long boat ride in their future.
Wait, it was Farnese's mother who got burned at the stake? How did I miss that? Thought it was just a random woman and that Farni just joined the burning or something.Why was she burned anyways?
Must saying I'm enjoying Love Live more than I expected. Catchy music, likable characters, cute girls doing cute things, pretty much what I was hoping for. Definitely has that uplifting tone I was looking for, too.Also, as much as I'm absolutely loving Nozomi, Umi's shy & serious personality is just winning out for me. The difference between them in the Best Girl contest is extremely slim as it stands but Nozomi is only falling further and further behind.My only complaint as it stands is it's slightly jarring when it jumps to CG for the music scenes. That said, as far as CGI goes, it's actually pretty palatable. Frame rate doesn't drop Berserk style and the movement is fluid enough that it's only jarring on principle.
I didn't really find much to interest me in Umi, or any of the other girls beyond Nozomi, Nico, and Maki. And Honoka, I suppose. This is in direct contract to The Idolmaster where, despite a larger roster of characters, every one was unique and interesting and there was something to like about them all - except the Futami twins, perhaps, who are just annoying but at least still unique among the group.Though I shouldn't complain about Love Live too much since I do actually quite enjoy it, I don't want to give the impression that I dislike the show.
Nico I was expecting to really like but I just find her personality unlikable, funnily enough. Not to say I dislike seeing her on screen, that's another matter, personally think she's a fantastic character, just a tastes thing.
I wonder how much thought was given to the individual titan designs on AoT. This is something I pondered the first time I watched the series. There are titans that seem purposefully designed as though they were modeled after real people. Imagine if some of the 'hero' models, that is to say the ones shown in detail up close, were based on members of the studio, friends of the developers, etc.
Considering they're going for the uncanny valley effect, I'd be surprised if every single titan model wasn't drawn with a model (or caricature, such as Titan-chan) in mind.
I started watching the first few episodes of Urara Meirochou with Tia a few days ago. It is fun so far, with great characters and an interesting setting. I don't know when we'll get the chance to continue it, though.
Lemme know how that goes, that's a show that is in my "I'd watch it but I don't know enough about it to put it in my list" list.
First season of Love Live done, and two episodes into Season 2. I think I have something negative to say about it now though. It is VERY on the nose with its enthusiasm. I get it Honoka, you can do it, you can do everything you put your mind to, stop screaming it at your friends 5 feet away please. Aside from that, I'm liking this more and more as I continue. Hopefully the "Honoka can't stop quitting" thing is over, you have my interest show, don't lose it by pulling the same thing a third time.
In more important news, Sagiri from Eromanga-sensei is Best Girl of the season hands down no questions asked anybody who disagreed is gaijin trash. I'd post a cute gif of her but the Internet isn't in on this quality imouto just yet.
Lastly, adding something to my Watch List. -Ahem-WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?No that's not three different shows. Freaking LNs need to calm down with their names... Anyways, I'm seeing this show thrown around a lot, and from what I've read of what its about it seems really interesting. But because "LN" a lot of people are passing it up this season. I'll get to starting it tomorrow probs.
I am looking forward to that. I've still got quite a bit of K-On!! left though, and the movie afterwards, so it might be a few weeks yet until I start it. Maybe I should just begin on the new shows anyway, I'm sure I'll still have a few episodes a week of K-On!! anyway.
Yeah, I am intrigued by this show. I came across it a week or two ago and I've added it to my watch list as well. I don't know why some people get snobby about anime that's based on a light novel, many of my favourite shows began as light novels.
I'd forgotten that AoT is such a misery fest. It's a series that truly pushes the boundaries in animated depictions of failure.
Yeah, but did it's protagonist get raped
never met his mother, his step-mother died of plague and he was accused of it
was betrayed by what he once considered a friend
and lost an arm?
