You're missing the point. Everyone can tell the difference between a visual novel and an anime.

But what's the point in memorizing the season and year of every anime? Seems like a really confusing way to organize anime threads, especially for someone who doesn't watch every anime the moment it airs. I'm guessing it's some /a/ thing.

Whatever, I'm going back to /photos/.
>> No.48372  
>>48371
Anime is discussed on /general/ as it airs, especially early in the season. It allows talk of 'the new anime' to be concentrated in a single thread, which is useful for example when deciding which of the new series to follow.

The seasonal threads are rarely revived for later discussion; there's an out-of-season general anime thread at >>44602 where anime from old seasons (that do have threads) are also discussed.

Am I the only one bothered by the character designs in Blade and Soul? I'm not quite sure what it is, but something feels off about them.


Initial impressions:

Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou: Looks like a rather generic and badly written romantic comedy to me. Main character is an idiot and his actions are clearly in 'creepy stalker' territory, not to mention it gets a lot more retarded if you consider he knows absolutely nothing about her and is only going by her looks. But what bothered me most is that the show consistently tries way, WAY too hard to be funny. I'm talking about five to ten-second tsukkomi responses you can see from miles away, repeatedly. I think I got to 60% or so before I got so tired of it I dropped it halfway through the first episode, a treatment reserved only for shows with the very worst first impressions. (As far as I can remember, the only other shows I did this with were Mayoi Neko Overrun and Tokyo Ravens.)

Blade & Soul: The opening scene is great, but after that it goes downhill very rapidly. The writing is terrible and it rushes through everything without ever giving you a reason to care about the things going on or giving logical reasons for the characters' actions when needed. The animation is not terrible throughout the entire episode, but most of the episode is animated as lazily as possible, with as many cuts to stills as they can manage and a lack of animation that just looks off during things like close-ups of people talking. Think Bee Train, except using stills instead of panning, and there's no meaning to the stills/pans (Bee Train has continuous staredowns, this series just does that shit for no reason).

A little bird told me that Captain Ass is Star Driver all over again. I'm somewhat excited.

Kawaisou looks really pretty and the older girl with no dating luck is cute. That's about it.

As for B&S... It's Gonzo, and it's an adaptation of a Korean MMORPG. I liked the MC before she gave herself that terrible haircut as mentioned a few posts above.

Okay, so I've been holding off trying Akuma no Riddle because all of the subs are of questionable quality. Funi's done their official stream now, but Funi also tends to be questionable quality and it seems they at least fucked up other stuff bad on this show so it doesn't seem like they're trying.

Assuming I don't care about encoding problems, low resolution, lack of karaoke or translated signs or conversations in the background, judging solely on translation quality (accuracy and editing), which is the least bad translation that's currently out?

Akuma no Riddle ep2 was a lot more interesting than ep1. I was strongly considering dropping it after ep1, but after ep2 I'm convinced I should watch some more to see where this is going. Minor spoilers on how it improves the premise introduced in ep1: Haru is not exactly an ordinary person and is aware everyone's trying to kill her, but details on her exact backstory are a mystery. The assassination attempts are formalized as a game: each assassin should at some point send an advance warning to Haru, then kill her within 48 hours from the warning or be expelled. It's still ridiculous, of course, but it might get exciting.

I feel that both Akuma no Riddle and Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii would've been better off dropping ep1 entirely. In both cases, ep2 is perfectly watchable even without ep1, ep2 is the actual start of the story, and ep2 actually tells what the story is really about. (Plus, in both cases, ep2 is a lot better than ep1.)

Actually, from the very start she was never motivated to kill her in the first place. She got friendly with her despite knowing full well she was going to be the target because she didn't really care about the mission. She just switched from passively watching to actively defending her.

There was nothing redeeming about that show other than wonderful Felli and the terrible English segments that didn't make any sense in context because the story didn't make it far enough to when the two stories come together.
Though I'm also a sucker for the fantasy shows where the MC is the god of victory but is generally lazy and doesn't want to effortlessly slaughter anything that stands against him if at all possible, so I enjoyed that aspect as well.

I think Chino was pretending to do ventriloquism again. She had the tray in front of her mouth while Tippy was reading fortunes, and Tippy didn't do Chino's fortune (since that would be like Chino doing her own fortune from the other girls' perspective).

Did they mess up the cards in the ED this week, or was that intentional? They were almost all Cocoa jokers, and the expected 5 of Tippies didn't appear.

>Love Live! Vol.1 sets the record of the highest selling TV Anime BD (in the first week), and also the highest selling TV Anime BD+DVD (in the first week) in the 21st century. Previous record holders was Madoka Vol.2 BD at 53,715 in the 1st week, and Bakemonogatari Vol.6 at 72,207 BD+DVD in the 1st week. The highest selling BD+DVD volume (in total sales via Oricon) is Bakemonogatari Vol.4 at 83,967, so Love Live Vol.1 should beat that next week.

While I don't disagree with your general opinion, I have to point out you're comparing a casual example to a hardcore example here. The equivalent of the 'buys dozens of CDs' person for sales rankings are the people neatly listing the sales rankings, tallying them up, comparing them to historical data and posting extensive write-ups about the state of things.

The idol equivalent of just chatting about sales figures a bit is setting your wallpapers and/or screensavers to idols, listening to their music and maybe buying a CD or two.

That's not the point. The point is that they do, and there is a huge demand for that sort of thing. Just like the K-on concerts.
And there is a lot of money to be made there, so you can most likely expect much more stuff like this happening in the future or with other BD boxsets.

I dislike idol anime and I dislike how with each season a greater percentage of series are idol anime. I've disliked the 'cute girls doing cute things' genre as a whole since K-On! set the standard due to them not having plot, comedy or any other redeeming elements, but at least the genre as a whole has the decency to throw in a new gimmick every series (cute girls making music, cute girls doing tennis, cute girls living in a small village, cute girls running a cafe, etc), but the idol anime throws even that out and fits the 'cute girls doing cute things' in a never-changing mold where you can just replace some names and have a script.

Up to that point, it's still fine. You guys can have your shows, and I can have mine. But when easy shows can easily outsell even the biggest hits among the more risky shows due to marketing bullshit, I know anime is in for a world of hurt. This is like gaming's freemium social gaming model all over again; you can claim it won't affect people not interested but the ridiculous amount of money involved will slowly corrupt everything, just like it's doing with gaming.

That is true, and I completely overlooked that aspect. It does set a rather nasty precedent for the industry. Sell 3-D idol live tickets via anime volumes as a sole means to boost sales will in no way help the anime-only community, but it will show a surefire method to artificially inflate sales and misrepresent the customer base to the shareholders that actually have a say in what anime project gets funded in the future.
Not that I won't look forward to the large influx of idol anime, but a lot of them are going to fail horribly as the anime-idol community probably won't live up to the producer's expectations once it is uncoupled from the 3D live shows.
