    What was so bad about it?

    The 2nd arc could have been better but I give it credit for trying something new.

    No, the video was clearly a rant about how shitty SAO is. The part about death was only one of his issues.

    Death was the focal point of the video. It was even titled "What's in a scene". It was barely even talking about the entire anime as a whole, but instead that one scene.

    Actually it's titled "What's in a scene - How SAO became the worst anime ever" (fucking lol)

    And the scene was the focal point of the video. The fake-out regarding the death was only one of the reasons he disliked the scene.

    I mean half the video is bitching about Kirito in particular. It's trash not even worth talking about. Might as well make a video called "how twilight became the worst movie ever" or "how justin bieber became the worst musician ever" to appease the legion of twelve year olds who will agree with his stupid opinion.

    I just skimmed the Re:Zero manga for a bit and I noticed that the characters, despite not looking that much different, have a really different vibe to them, especially Subaru. I can't really put my finger on what it is, but he just looks more mature, I guess?

    91 Days 02 - Man I did not expect that ending. This show is going to be amazing if it continues with this level of quality.

    Goddammit. I thought you guys were being ironic, but fuck. I'm watching a puppet show and it might be the best "anime" I've seen this year.

    Thunderbolt Fantasy 02 - It looks like Saber, Lancer, and Archer have gathered.
    Also just realized the princess-esque girl is voiced by Mai Nakahara. So based.

    Like I said, if I was told I could get CD in only this form, I'd beg for it.

    Well, I'm sure the excellent prop quality has something to do with how well this works. ^.^

    That and the excellent music. And the effects. And the camerawork. This is amazing. @o

    Oh, Thunderbolt Fantasy music is done by Hiroyuki Sawano. Now I know why it reminded me of Aldnoah so much.

    Don't forget to watch your Spice & Wolf episodes this week!

    Clannad through episode 4 - Art style isn't bugging me as bad this time around like it did the last couple of times I've tried watching. The animation is solid and the show's very pretty despite the eyes still bothering me. The story's still not grabbing me but I'm going to power through it because I've been putting it off for so long. I'm enjoying it for the most part, at least.

    I've watched this one so many times. Even if I don't like a show of theirs, they do such a great job at making a show theirs.

    I figured you would either really like or really dislike this one, definitely didn't see it as your favorite/highest rated.

I agree with you about where the manga needed to end, and the movie arc definitely took away from the overall feel and message. I didn't knock points for the friendship part though, even though it was unnecessary.

    - A show like this actually could have been interesting. The premise certainly has potential. Though I guess you could say that about most things. Regardless, other issues aside, the trial was ridiculously stupid and over the top. Shit. Dropped.
    I truly do not understand why they decided to make it Super Saiyan Lawyers Court, because the Ace Attorney games are some of my favorites, and while the trials can get quite over the top and crazy, there's never any stupid auras, although some people do lose their hair suddenly and drastically, just without explanation though.

    I need to write worse reviews: nobody ever has anything to add.

    ...

    ...

    That's it! Be right back guys, gonna write a review titled, "How Attack On Titan Ruined Anime (And Has the Worst Opening Too)."

    You usually have very reasonable and comprehensible opinions and you tend to formulate them in a thoughtful and inoffensive way, which is a very good thing, in my opinion, but doesn't leave a lot of ground for discussion.

    I also often just haven't spent as much time as you analyzing the shows you review that I watched as well and you mostly just put what I would have come up with anyway into a structured form.

    Maybe if you rewatch Lain and write a review about it we might have something to talk about

    Just type out CLICK FOR EVERY REASON I CAN THINK OF and link to its page on Netflix or something. We still would have nothing to add.

    edit: In all seriousness, though, when I was reviewing professionally, I went off what one of my professors taught me about critiquing my own work. Read your work with the intention of enjoying it as much as possible, then break it down and find as many things that you think are wrong with it as you can, then list reasons why your assessments are right and wrong. It was a really helpful lesson and it came in handy when reviewing games and books.

    False. They're all best girl, the real question here is who is the bestest.

    True indeed.

    Just watched the first episode of Thunderbolt Fantasy and I'm not quite sure what I think. I feel like I've been treated to "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" if it were done by Jim Henson in the 80s.

    And as for the reviews, I know there isn't much to say often. It was just me musing on how odd it is that the higher the quality of review the less discussion it sparks.

    That's more or less what I do. I re-read my reviews multiple times before posting and then a few times after. I was fairly happy with this review, although I don't think my middle-Good transition worked as well as I'd have liked. It was hard to touch on everything I wanted to without becoming completely overburdened.
