    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    SAO isn't about the leveling aspect, don't even think about it being so. From now on it will be side-stories until floor
    Spoiler: placement of ending show

    It lacks compared to the LN, so give it a try if you have some free time and to much interest into the series. The third episode was bad compared to what I've read.

    Watched the third Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA, which was full of perverted misconceptions as before. This one need a second season!

    I love how open the hero is with his lewdness in Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai, it has action, flat and non-flat chested characters and can even be funny at times.

    Leveling aspect? I don't quite understand what you mean.

    I was referring to character story pacing for example....

    Spoiler: Sword Art Online Episodes 2 & 3 spoilers show


    And unfortunately I can't click your spoiler tag because I do NOT want to know "when it ends", "how it ends", or "how it relates to the novel". I am anti-spoiler. My thoughts and opinions are going to be based on the anime, and the anime alone, because that's what I'm watching.

    In the main story there is literally nearly no character development aside from Kirito and Asuna and that's marginal at best too. All that was there is the flashback of the contents of episode 3. So I don't really expect much from the side stories, will watch it anyway.

    Much is told from his perspective[descriptions etc], this is where the anime will lack Imo. You could at least try and only so far that it wont get into the way of the Anime content.

    I'm very much aware that the light novels are out there if I wished to read them, and I read very fast so it wouldn't even take me long, but I do not want to do that. The only thing that interests me is the anime.

    I'm not watching the anime adaptation as a compliment to another telling of the story I'm watching it so that IT can tell me the story. If I feel interested enough I may read the novels after the series completely finished but I certainly won't be reading it before.

    Which is why any information from, or about, the novels is something I do not want. I feel the same way about the Monogatari series and Toaru Majutsu no Index.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Currently watching Mushishi and I'm really enjoying. Wasn't so sure because of the episodic concept but everyone new case is able to totally capture me and feel with the characters. Ginko is an awesome main character as well, probably one of the best shows I've watched in a while.

    Pretty sure you will enjoy it I'm watching it and to me it feels like it could be one of the best shows of the season. Arcana Famiglia on the other hand was a huge disappointment, not sure if it's worth your time

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Mushishi is on my to-watch list as well.


    I finished Serial Experiments Lain a few days ago. Before I start a new series, however, I'm going to finish Nurarihyon: Sennen Makyou and the first season of Sket Dance- both of which I've put on hold for months.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I have returned! ... More or less. I need to catch up with series I'm following: SAO and Hyouka. Also finished downloading Higurashi no Naku Koro ni during my absence, so I'll check that out soon.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Recently watched Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika which I enjoyed a lot, way more than I thought I would. Both have this very interesting strangeness to it but they're really well-done and always have a nice mix of romance, action and eyecatchers.

    Mushishi is really good, I'm sure you will enjoy it

    On another note you should really catch up with the Sket Dance anime, I'm really loving it. If they continue like this it won't take long until they reach the last scanlated chapters.

    You need some real patience for Higurashi but keep going, I assure you it will turn out really awesome!

    I can't wait to watch it then! Apparently the manga is really good as well.

    I really should. I thought the Sket Dance anime would only be a season long so I'm glad they're covering more chapters in the second season.

    ---------- Post added August 15, 2012 at 08:24 PM ---------- Previous post was August 09, 2012 at 07:52 PM ----------

    I watched the first episodes of Mushishi, Polar Bear Cafe and Samurai Champloo.

    I chose Mushishi because Niichan recommended it (as you can see above), Polar Bear Cafe because of Sakurai Takahiro it has animals in it, and Samurai Champloo because it was produced by Manglobe- a studio I've become interested in after watching and loving Ergo Proxy.

    I'm also planning on watching Last Exile and Witch Hunter Robin.

    Indeed, now I see what you meant there. I'm already halfway through it, 13 more episodes to go. It feels even a bit slower and vague compared to Umineko, but I'm still curious. I'm hoping to finish it soon. XD

    After Higurashi, besides my regular anime, I'm planning to try Fate/Zero series and Elfen Lied. What is this Mushishi about, by the way?

    I've read the manga too, the anime leaves out quite a few cases but in the end it doesn't matter too much because the whole thing is episodic. Both are great.

    It's not that far from the scanlations anymore.

    What's your impression on the three series?

    LOL sorry vio but do you know that there is a second season (called Higurashi no naku koro ni kai)? The second season is actually the one that will give you all the answers and close the case. Season 1 clears quite a few things at the end but it still leaves you with a loooot of questions. Second season is great though so don't worry.

    Mushishi is something without action and/or great plot twists but explores (human) life and it's themes in an excellent way.

    Read the description here for the basic plot: http://myanimelist.net/anime/457/Mushishi

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Mushishi sounds interesting! I'm in the mood of slice-of-life series at the moment, be it manga or anime, so I'll add that to my to-watch list.

    Asa-chan, I don't know which Last Exile you are referring to. A while ago I tried to watch Last Exile The Silver Wing and ended up dropping it since I found it somehow boring. Not sure if there is another Last Exile before that one.

    that's the one we both didn't enjoy right? there's actually a prequel called just "Last Exile" but I heard it's not really that great too. Can't judge but from my experience with Fam the silver Wing I actually believe it :/

    It's good to hear that the manga is worthing checking out as well. Since the format is episodic, I can probably get away with reading only the cases that aren't animated.

    Sket Dance has been more or less filler-free so far, but the anime will have to add some soon if they continue at this pace.

    Mushishi: The quaint setting reminds me of Mononokehime because of the natural/spiritual motifs. I like Ginko already, which is a good thing since he'll be the only character that's sticking around. (I think.)

    Polar Bear Cafe: It's cute! I have a feeling that this one will be an episodic series as well. Unlike Mushishi, however, the episodes will simply be fluff.

    Samurai Champloo: I've heard a lot of praises for it so I'm trying to find out what all the fuss is about. The first episode simply told how the main characters met each other; I don't think the actual story will happen until the next one.

    I'm watching the one that's just called "Last Exile". The Silver Wing is the second season so perhaps that's why you didn't enjoy it. (TBH I was having trouble getting through the first episode. I'll try to watch 1/4 of it at least to form an opinion.)

    Yup, that's not a problem. IIRC the last case (in the manga) isn't in the anime too so you can go and check the ending I have to say that there were cases (in both anime and manga) which bored me a bit too though, while others were just awesome.

    True, they added some stuff here and there but I can't recall more than two or three episodes which had a complete filler case for half an episode :/ they're still not that close but I agree, at this pace they will have to start including more.

    Mononokehime?
    And yeah, there are two (I think ) other characters who are involved more than once but most people just appear for one time and will never be seen again. Ginko does get his backstory though, so you will start to learn more about him
