  1. well maybe it is a billion dollar industry BECAUSE they dont care for their artists^^ Like the chinese industry can offer products so cheap only because of the horrible working conditions and payments
  2. Generally I prefer dub. But sub just has a different feeling to it. Somehow more authentic or something like that. Emotions definetly get me more in dubs (when they are good^^), because the reading distracts me to an extreme extent and I dont really ingest (not sure about that word) the pictures anymore. Also specific scenes or lines stay in my memories far better when dubbed, because I can combine visuals and accustics and so its just a stronger experience. The only anime I watched first subbed, then dubbed was Scums Wish and it comrifmed exactly that. Still I liked the sub more here, because it just felt more, as I said, authentic, more fitting, more right. I dont know. Its just a completely different style of voicing edit: Most important: never again I will watch the same anime in sub AND dub
  3. Well as far as I can judge, this seems to be normal in Japan and thus a generel problem in japanese society. They just have a sick understanding of duty and honor together with sick social constraints, restrictions and demands. I ve watched some documentations about word in Japan and they said, that its normal to have far more than 100 hours overtime per month and that some people in the government trie to introduce a legal maximum, but they couldnt get it lower than 100 hours per month. Above that, the companys have to pay penalties, but it is still sick. To imagine, that all the animes we watch are made under such conditions, is not very amusing and considering that most anime arent even done very well and very expensive to buy, is ehm...it would hardly work out in a "normal" way I think^^ But that is a japanese problem and we cant do anything about it anyways, the same nobody else can solve problems in your country. So close your eyes and join the blind I guess
  4. Hey guys, so first a spoiler warning: Warning, might contain minor or major spoilers! What i want to talk about are her hands. It happens several times that someone is blaming Violet for “using the very same hands that killed so many” to do something beautiful. The smartass in me then always thought “but hey they are not the same hands ;)” and Im sure the produces must have been aware, that people would think that, but I didn’t give much value to that, I just accepted it. But now I thought that maybe that was intentional? A hint for a symbol. She lost that evil, killing hands at the last battle and got new innocent ones to start a new innocent life, with her hands doing beautiful things. Like the evil killing machine literally fell apart from her. Another thing is, that she first uses her mouth to pull off her gloves. Later its shown clearly that she suddenly changes her mind and starts using her hands to do that, as how its “normal”. First I thought that was just to show that she accepted her artificial hands as part of herself. But now I think that it might be supposed to show, that with accepting her peaceful hands, she also generally accepted her new peaceful life and allowing emotions as an alternative to the military life. I think it is also about the same time when she starts to do things less like a soldier. So, does anybody else find this mentionable? Or did you find that so obvious that you noticed it right away?

  5. I am strongly limiting my watching duration. I try to watch only 2 episodes a day and max 3. Its very hard usually, but I know if I watch more its too much at once. Then I cant "process" it all and also will have forgtotten a lot. But I often also spent a lot time thinking about it afterwards. For the end of a season its different. Then I usually watch at least 3 episodes at once. I wachted AoT season 2 at once and that wasnt good for me.
  6. Well I dont want to say that I generally like it, but I think it can be good. Characters that have no real personality or no weaknesses and are just allways badass and unshakable are just flat and uninteresting. I know that was different as I was younger. EG everybody is hating Yuki from Mirai Nikki for crying all the time but I think its plausible and it gives the series far more depth. Even if he isnt the most liked character anymore then, which obviously is Yuno. Another example is Mikasa. Everybody likes her becuase she is cool, but except for the end of season 2 she is just super flat (no, not her boobs...), has no real personality except being cool and offers hardly more than being badass in every way. Also I think there is a giant amount of "sexism" involved. If the whiny mc is a girl/woman and needs support all the time, everybody is like "ooohh poor girl shes so cute" (except if its too exxegerated) and if its a boy/man its like "ffs what a pussy, he is fuckign annoying, just let him die if he cant handle anything alone".
  7. Just finished Tokyo Ghoul. Next is Madoka Magica tomorrow or the day after. I need a break after every anime to sort my thoughts
  8. Hey guys, so first: please refrain from spoilers beyond season 2 and be aware of spoilers including the end of season 2 and the description of season 3. So Im quite new to anime and considering Tokyo Ghouls omnipresence I thought it has to be cool. And the setting is cool and the characters looked cool.....but yeah.....The start was really good. The first let down was the Shuu arc which mostly just felt unnecessary and rediculous. The rest of season 1 was okaaaaay. The episodes were over very fast which actually could speak for the anime but somehow I was unsatisfied all the time. I dont feel like I really got to know the characters Im supposed to care about. And unfortunately that includes Kaneki and Touka for a too big part. Yoshimura was cool and Koutarou was ok. Hide seemed to be important, but no he wasnt and Im fine with him getting no screentime at all because I couldnt care less about him. Unfortunately season 2 wanted me to....I think the scenes with him were okaaayy but pretty unnecessary and to build the whole ending around his deaths was like a punch in the face because I seriously couldnt give less shit about him. He had no role at all. Even Shinoharas maybedeath was more emotional and I didnt really like him for his puppetlike dead eyes. Hell even that Jason clones death would have been more emotional because I would have cheered so hard, I propably would have cried. I mean really what a shit is that character and why is screentime wasted on him? I really liked that they got us to know Amon and Mados daughter better. I really didnt like that they tried it with the entire CCG too....Why not telling us something about that Koma guy and the woman I dont know the name off because it was mentioned like 3 times in the entire anime instead, who suddenly lead whole armies and sacrificed themselves for the maincharacters but I dont really care because I dont know them AT ALL! Or making the konversations between Yoshimura and Kaneki something big, profound and rememberable, instead of "hey btw Kaneki was hereand we talked, didnt you know? Oh now you know....". Or giving the screentime to the maincharacters, but no lets not get crazy! Actually I shouldnt call them that because Touka and Kaneki just werent maincharacters in season 2. I mean serisously what did they do? Kaneki was busy WALKING AROUND like a cool dude and Touka was...I dont know...studying and oh she was running for THREE ENTIRE FUCKING EPISODES to eventually DO NOTHING except NOT talking to Kaneki? The only thing I remember from Kaneki is "I join aogiri" and from Touka its "...BECAUSE I WAS ROYALLY PISSED OFF!". They didnt develop their relathionship, they didnt develop for themselves, just nothing happened! The only characters I cared about were nearly completely taken away in sake of a giant bunch of supernumerarys killing each other and a bunch of side characters fighting other side characters that havent even been introduced at all, in a horribly choreographed way. I really wanted to like this anime but I dont know what I could like apart from Touka and Kaneki, who I also cant really like because I just dont know them. And now that its over I feel like Im missing strangers, what doesnt make any sense... So the ending was the same as the entire season: nothing but a stupid fight in a exaggerated scale. And because an entirely unconclusive ending like this isnt bad enough, season 3 will take place 2 fucking years later, so I guess we will then learn what all the characters that are now maybe dead or maybe not, will have been doing the past 2 years HELL YEAH and this ending will just be left as it is and all the conequences from what happend and the sorrow will be skipped. Great. Is it possible that they just gave up on what they missproduced so far too? And the ovas....about Shuus past....why not about Yoshimuras past? This anime left a void inside me, but not because it was so touching but because my massive dissatisfaction sucked out the little that was put inside to begin with. So excuse me I now go bash my face into a mirror and try to deal with that I wont get a cool story around Touka and Kaneki.... Pls be polite with your criticism. Greetings eCapter
  9. I was quite a bit disappointed with Shigatsu wa kimi no uso / Your lie in april. SPOILER Every time they change the animation style to that inane childish crap. When someone is angry eg.....seriously what is that? One scene is totally serious and the next is THAT...It destroyed all emotions it just created....that makes me so angry.... Also I think the ending wasnt staged good. There were no emotions about Kaoris death, except for the letter she wrote. He just played and a flashing Kaori ghost disappeared and that was her death...wow....Kousei should have rushed to hospital afterwards with Tsubaki and Watari and there should have been crying and screaming and breaking down. That would have carried some emotions that couldnt be delivered from Kaori herself anymore. Instead its like oh btw shes dead, too bad. But look now its winter and now spring and now its been a year and Kousei looks QUITE FUCKING HAPPY.....and whats with Tsubaki? That disappointed me. They are all just somehow ok with it

    <----------- Although I wouldnt call her waifu^^ 2nd would be Mikasa Ackerman. Im a bit mainstream in that regard I guess
  12. Last movie I watched was Kimi no na wa / Your name. Great movie. Somehow it was raining in my room suddenly...
  13. Yuno was a victim of her parents. Only their abuse forced her to develop that obsession about being happy with Yuki (or actually just anybody). Nothing she did would have been necessary if her parents didnt mistreat her. 3rd Yunos future changed and the abuse stopped and thus she became just a normal girl. She wasnt just evil or crazy by fate.
  14. Hey guys sorry its a bit off topic, but I dont knnow where to ask. I feel the urge to edit the tags. I have the hope that maybe some more would find this. Propably not but who knows. Can I still do it? I aparently edited it allready but I cant see how I did that
  15. Shuffle I heard it is funny, has good deep characters and drama, because it was classified as...drama...But it wasnt really anything of it. The last 3rd was ok and had some drama and emotions. I liked some of the grils and they were cute but thats not enough and even without a real plot it has plot holes. But now Im into some characters and I have to watch that other season...damn it..
  16. At the end when Yuki comes out of the sphere and Yuno runs into his arms its like this: Yuno : Why? Yuki: Yuno! Yuno: Tell me! And it really took a while until I understood
  17. Oh thank you two!! I posted this in 2 forums and utube (well yes its too long for utube^^) and noone responded and I doubted anybody read it and thought im just stupid to read so much into her and being so attached But yes what made the anime so awesome for me was her and especially the last third (except the flying around and shoot energy balls thing...). I just felt so incredible sorry for her. edit: I overlooked something. When Yuno attacks 3rd Yuno and her parents again she couldnt know that 2nd Murmur would safe her. But she did know that the cop would shoot her and before she said something like "....thats what love is all about. Making the ultimate sacrifice. Death means nothing." so I think she didnt really wanted to attack them but allready had accepted that she cant go on with that cycle and thus, from a lack of alternatives, she wanted to get shot/suicide allready then.
  18. okay why the hell is Mewto there but not Yuno and Lucy? Oh there she is. 70/75....naa....I disagree.....is Lucy there too?
  19. Being strong doesnt mean that you dont have that emotions or dont need to talk about it. You shouldnt try that, it might fire back one day. I watched Future Diary a week ago and I cried damn much and I rewatched certain scenes every day because I wanted to feel it again because it feels good and a billion times better than feeling nothing or pushing everything away with excessive video gaming eg. Watching something else is effective to get over it but maybe you should accept that it made you sad for a while and instead tell friends or parents that/why it made you sad. I started doing that recently and it actually feels quite awesome to let someone know how you feel and why you are so attach/obsessed to/with a certain character and why you feel so connected to himher. Although it is ok to sometimes push away. Just not for ever. I feel like Hootr explained quite often. It sucks, that why I prefer crying
  20. Hello guys, I just watched some theories about Yuno and now I had to write some things to get Yuno out of my head (no it didnt work...) and so you have to endure the results, sorry: I think she was a normaly in love with him. She was misstreated by her parents and thus she already was mentallly ill before she killed themand then she had completely nobody, not even friends from school o rat least a hobby to get distracted. So she got totally keyed up in all thats left: loving Yuki. Thats what kept her from panic and going completely insane. Aro called Yuki "a stabilizing factor" for her. Yuno is obsessed with the picture of her being happy with Yuki and decieves herself to believe that would make HER better and HER happy. She thinks that she could forget all what happened and everything will just be good. She is giving that such a high value that compared to it everything else, what she endured or did is completeley meaningless. But thats just not the case. Its an illusion and when that illusion breaks there is nothing left to care about to push away emotions, only emptiness and solitude what leads to despair and then to panic. Then nothing feels any relevant. In her case, what around her could be relevant enough to let her push away what happened to her? I imagine that that happended to her after she kidnapped Yuki in the hotel and he slapped her and said "screw you" but the easiest way to handle that is simply to ignore it and go on with it because then all doubts and despair will be again forgotten and thats what she did too. The other options would have been suicide which she didnt want or bear it, talk about it and get help but thats damn hard and she had noone and a 14 year old doesnt just say hey I should go to a therapist. Another time when this could be the case is when she noticed that they changed the future for 3rd Yuno and that she will not have to go through the same things and she realizes that the way she justified her actions so far isnt aplicable anymore because 3rd Yunos life wont be hell anyways and then she can choose between loosing her only purpose and endure what I explained before or pushing it away and just going on and you really cant blame her for the second because its incredible hard to bear the right option. Only when Yuki then appears she can finally let go her illusion and what happened then? Yes she killed herself...because she couldnt kill Yuki out of love, I believe that, but also because she realized what she did and what she had become trying to fulfill her illusiones dream and that even being happy with Yuki does neither justify her actions even for herself anymore nor could it let her forget and just be good (mentally I mean) and so she just chose the way out although she new exactly that being a lone god with everybody else and especially herself dead (on top of it mostly killed by himself) would be hell for him and she still forced him to. So was it selfish or selfless? Imo she didnt do it for Yuki. She did it because she loved him but not for him. She couldnt go on as before and she couldnt bear living with it. Id prefered to live together until the 2nd world ended but for some reason that was out of the question for her (which is really ironic considering that that was exactly what god Yuki did afterwards....) and so suicide actually was the only option left for her. Its hard to blame her. I feel incredible sorry for her as if she was real what is a bit rediculous.... I think she did love him but all she did wasnt just for love but for her mind to somehow survive, although she didnt know it herself. I think considering all that just dumping her off as evil psychopath wouldnt do the character justice and also would be really unfair to Yuno as a person, because she was the first victim and just tried to let survive what was left of her mind. But I also think that she would have fallen in love with anyody else suitable and available as she said herself. But you just cant find the point of living in someone else. I hope all this was a bit comprehensible. Its really hard to explain such things and even more so in another language.
