  1.  I cant critically review this show, being that its been quite a while since I've watched it, but I didn't complete it. I dropped it with 3 eps to go. It just seemed very lackluster to me. Like it was lacking in several elements. It seemed sort of predictable and not unique.. I suppose, if I were to guess at the moment what my complaints would have been.

    I have seen Hajime no Ippo, that is one of my favorite shows still to date. It is also my comparison for this boxing anime. I'm a huge underdog story and shounen anime fan. So having seen a lot of these types of shows, it just letft me wanting more from it. IG.

    I do need to watch ashita no joe still. Fans say its better. What do you think?

  2. Keeping up with friends over the course of you life is hard. So you're so wise to recognize the need to always cherish them. 

    Circumstances change and people change too so we cant always count on our friends being a part of our lives forever. As much as we wish for the familiarity and comfort of long term friendships our lives evolve like the seasons of this world. Time brings us forward into another day and nothing stays the same.

    Excuse the rambling. Im just really in my feelings rn.

    Oh! That explains some things with your character. I think you're doing great so far. My suggestion would be to put Sofia's thoughts into italics to demonstrate that it's not dialogue.

    For instance:

      Hide contents

    The air conditioning was turned off, so the room was getting hotter and hotter.

    "I'm gonna step outside for a moment," Marsh announces. He then takes his bags and heads outside.

    I wonder if Kagura is feeling okay. Sofia considers, taking a look at her best friend.

    I do feel a little guilty for not contributing as much, so let me know if you think I should do something or the story should go in a certain direction.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll see about doing that

    Probably kuu, since they're most interesting to me and interesting characters make for interesting anime.  They tend to need good supporting characters to play off though.

    They sure are interesting. There’s a crazy one on the show I’m watching right now - Vinland Saga, called Askellad - he is interesting. My favorite is the boy, our future MC

    I tend to have the strongest reactions - both positive and negative - to kuudere characters.  Irie Naoki from Mischievous Kiss I wanted to strangle for instance, but I did/do like characters like Sesshoumaru (Inuyasha), Goblin Slayer, or Shiroe (Log Horizon).  Sometimes they can be boring though (Tatsuya Shiba, The Irregular at Magic High) if they're not well-written/acted.

    Do you have a favorite type?

  6. There are certain animes that I can't watch - and it has something to do with how I perceive the sincerity of the series, I suppose. But I never attributed it to a character being "fake" I guess I'll look at this a little harder next time I'm watching a new series. I wonder if it's the same for me, but perhaps it puts me off more unconsciously.. I usually  just attribute it to something like "this anime doesn't feel right" or, its not genuine... Does this come from the characters themselves? I guess it just might. I couldn't stand Sword Art Online, because it felt generic, and I didn't really buy into the hype, but really tried to watch it and evaluate it based on its own merits.

  7. I tried it out as well to see how it would work for me finding some new favorite anime 😁

    I’ve used your site before and like your ranking system a lot better than MAL. Love that you’re doing this. I know it’s a new feature so you’ve got a lot of trial and error to go before you get it to where you probably want it to be. Good luck going forward, I think @Illusion of Terra Was right on the money. If the search values were more precise, rather than broad, it might be better.

    What was the purpose of the “list 5 anime” part of the search engine? How did the site factor in those? Just curious

  8. Why hello, Yanushi-Chan 😍

    Im glad you’re done with your training, welcome back~ nice to meet you really.

    This season and the previous had some good releases, I put up a poll to find out what our AF members found most appealing, but really it was all over the board, that’s just how many good series that have been airing recently.

    I’d have to start by suggesting my favorites though. 

    Currently Airing: Vinland Saga, Fruits Basket (2019), Fireforce, and Demon slayer. 

    Recently Aired: Rising of the Shield Hero, and The Promised Neverland.

    Check em out! We’ve got lots of ongoing threads in the anime section, feel free to jump in when you catch up on some anime! ✌️

  9. Well said. I’m definitely going to have to give OPM another look. I appreciate the time you took to write all this up. I like character interaction and depth I love that you recognized the comparison to Japanese working conditions in the anime. That’s intriguing all on its own but it seems there are even more reasons to love OPM. Thanks again for the write up.

    Im going to have to think a bit more about my fav characters in MHA and give you some feedback there though. I feel like there’s got to be something I see in these characters relationships that is worthy of being considered.
