It feels like Kubo sold out and buckled under the pressure to me. Feels like it wasn't his vision after the rescue of Rukia, because clearly she was the main love interest and not Orihime, and just a big fat compromise to get more money from the cash juggernaut called "Bleach". Really from the beginning it felt like it should be a journey of Ichigo to reconcile his Soul Reaper half with his Quincy half becoming the "Savior" et al, then bringing peace between the two organization (clans?). But then the filler and the BS shifts in the story was a beacon that something changed and NOT for the better. Kubo got sick and you don't need to be a Sherlock to figure out the reasons why. Anyway, JMHO the whole ending made me gift my entire bleach collection away for free and become an absolute "Hater" of the whole series. Honestly, the Mangaka's got to quit selling out and tell their stories THEIR way (Looking at you Bleach and Naruto). Just saying.
Underpaid and Overworked: Being an Animator in Japan
Oakmi replied to Mazino's topic in Anime DiscussionThere are way to many unknown variables that cannot be added into the equation to find the correct answer. As I look over the market sales for anime and find that its (as of 2017 sourced through the AJA I cannot believe that a billion dollar industry doesn't take care of their artists. My guesses (and this is just a guess) lie in portfolio exposure, length of time in the industry as well as possible over saturation leading to some of the instances of lower pay. Without having other artists points of view and empirical data (Which I'm too lazy to google down) its hard to have a honest discussion in the first place. I sincerely empathize with her plight but her situation isn't unique just in Japan or to her.
The Boruto Anime Sukcs Discussion (Clean)
Oakmi replied to Animaru's topic in Anime DiscussionThink anything Naruto (Son or otherwise) sucks. Honestly, such a ridiculous sell out anime that it isn't even funny. I started the anime, liked the anime (Naruto) but then Shippuden killed it all for me. Was like a serial killer just came creeping in slaughtering all the good vibes and burying them in shallow graves in some abandoned field. Then the creator decided it would be a good idea to continue his story by telling the story of his son...whom lets face it, nobody cares about in the first place. Oh, and don't get me started on the characters...that's a rant for a different thread. Anyway, Boruto Sucks +1...btw since I joined the club when do I get my jacket and patch?!?
Where do you watch your anime?
Oakmi replied to Sam_harris_43's topic in Anime DiscussionHuh, thanks for the source. Always looking for legally licensed sites to stream from that aren't the typical.
Currently as of 11/13/19 I am watching "Back Street Girls" which as of Episode 10 is amusing and a fun little no thinker.
How Do You Keep Track of the Anime You're Watching/Have Watched?
Oakmi replied to Geano's topic in Anime DiscussionRight there with you. My Japanese is downright insulting to the Japanese so if I can't find the English title I'm kind of screwed. Luckily their little feature does make it easier to navigate when searching for something.
Alita: Battle Angel
Oakmi posted a topic in Anime DiscussionFebruary 14th Alita: Battle Angel arrives in theaters. Having read the Manga I'm interested in seeing what the new LAF is going to be like. Most people have dogged Ghost in the Shell, but personally I liked that film, but having experienced Death Note on Netflix my balloon knot has shrunk up. That and it's James Cameron who is directing the piece..and well...anyway, what is everyone's thoughts about the upcoming film? Rosa Salazar had quoted in an interview that she felt that they had stayed true to the core of the Manga. Also, what is your take on LAF in general that are adaptations of Manga or Anime? Cheers! -Kuro

How Do You Keep Track of the Anime You're Watching/Have Watched?
Oakmi replied to Geano's topic in Anime DiscussionNot gonna' lie, probably be downloading that soon. Did just the same when I started getting overly serious with my titles, but after the 600th series I fell out of it. Currently I pretty much just rely on Myanimelist.net to keep track, and even then I'm pretty lazy at adding entries.
Finished: Re: Zero, Whispers of the Heart (Re-Watch) No clue as to what I'm starting now, just letting it go where it may.
Love bleach, hate the filler and yeah that ending was very crappy. What I would love to see is a reboot of the series minus the filler and following the manga to it's conclusion not the producers/studios. There's so much more in the manga than in the anime yet because they wanted to rush the story into production they got ahead of the source material, as usual, thus filler was born as well as a story deviation and rushed and insubstantial ending.
Yeah, started watching that one, got there and dropped it. Can't figure out why these authors or production staff feel the need to bury such great stories in crap like that.
I agree with that, and FYI, Demon Lord would have been a whole lot better if they focused more on the plot than the ecchi. The whole "Shocker Thing" not really funny and kind of rapey honestly.
That Time I got Reincarnated as a slime
Oakmi replied to Ashukatski's topic in Anime DiscussionUp to Episode 7 now and really bummed...not going to spoil it but I'm sure you know why. Anyway, hooked like its crack so eventually it may end up in my top 10, or even top 5 if it continues this way. REALLY want to talk about it deeper, but would spoil it and don't want to do that for those that haven't watched it...which if this is you WATCH IT! You seriously won't be disappointed. Those of you that are watching it, what do you think about what happened with this episode?
Do you watch the same anime series more then once?
Oakmi replied to Geano's topic in Anime DiscussionI did sometimes watch series more than once but then realized that I tend to start picking it apart even if I really liked it the first time because my tastes changed. So right now once is enough and if it takes them years to bring out another season, it just doesn't get watch because I don't want to start harshing it.
