    The Zabuza Arc of original Naruto is the best kind of anime I've ever seen, I really wish the tactics and deception of that arc stayed throughout the series.

  1. YOOOOOO! That's what I'm saying! I'm so jealous that you get to experience the next few episodes for the first time lol
  2. All this considered it kinda feels like something I might end up watching... but like STRICTLY in private lol. I dont wanna have to answer to people that think I'm legit watching hentai, its just easier that way
  3. High recommend on Spy x Family Good fun, surprisingly good comedy, watching the characters react to different situations is great However... would you recommend DTWM Nagatoro? It looks kinda... fetishy/fan servicey at a glance
  4. @AnimedragonIdk man, I think it says a lot about the teachers if physical harm is all they can think of to effectively punish students. Not to mention how many kids just come from bad homes and only act out because they lost the "Parent Lottery", getting smacked around at school isn't gonna make them better people. Physical punishment is just a detterant, it doesn't usually teach any lessons besides "it hurts to get hit by a thing".
  5. @AnimedragonDamn I guess that's the difference in our schools then, I went to a run-of-the-mill High School in the middle of the 2010s. Saw people sleeping all the time, not every day but often enough that it wasn't ever surprising. The general understanding was that if you were asleep, that's your choice. They aren't gonna stop class for a kid that clearly decided they dont really care, they can just miss out. Not every teacher thought this way but enough of them did that I never got in any real trouble for it. This education system ain't shit anyway, I got good grades in school despite always being sleepy and taking naps. Most of the teachers are no good at passing their knowledge onto their students so missing the actual lessons didn't usually produce much difference unless it was like, Algebra.
  6. Congratulations man! You're doing things right to be able to feel that way, hope you're able to soak it all in!
  7. Sleeping in school is a right of passage lol, some of the best naps I ever took were at a desk
  8. Mei is underrated waifu full-stop, ambitious and PACKED with energy I havent read the manga but I hope she has more to do in the anime soon Edit: Blue Rose wasn't there when I sent the reply lol. I'm not familiar with Blue Rose, so maybe I have some studying to do
  9. I'll give you a hint, the show is "Bleach" and her name rhymes with "Nokia"
  10. I feel like I see a "type" here, idk but here it is
  11. It probably says a lot about me that I forgot about Evangelion technically being a "psychological" anime I only ever saw the original run of the show and "End of Evangelion", but when it comes to the other movies and the actual ending I've never gotten around to it Great show of course, but the original "ending" really frustrated me so I'm uncertain about giving it a 2nd chance
  12. I liked Halo from 2 through Reach, but after that nothing of the little bits I played felt quite as good. Honestly it's a series that I only ever play for local multiplayer with friends, so as long as I've got one of the Halo games I already like I really dont need any more. And I'm still waiting to mature to the point where I can latch onto a creator like that and give their other work a chance. Like it would make sense that if I like one of their "mind-babies" then I'll probably like the others. I just get hooked by concepts and visual style and when neither of those can hook me before I've actually watched an epsiode... I have a hard time giving the show a chance I consume anime really slowly and really take care to only wwtch something if I have a REAAAALLY good feeling I'm gonna like it, I don't take many chances when it comes to diving into new stuff. I also haven't seen much (if any?) psychological anime. As someone that's developed a taste for it already, where would you say is a good place to start?
  13. Well I'm glad we both have siblings that kept finding anime for us to get into, or else neither of us would even be here lol It really is interesting how you got reintroduced to anime SO many times before you found something that really "stuck" with you. Goes to show I guess that we should be more willing to withhold judgement on certain things until we've more thoroughly given them a chance, because we could really easily miss connecting with something that we would end up loving for life. The commercialism side of things is really a bummer though, you're right on about that. Is there a game series that comes to mind to you as something that really got ruined by the modern landscape of things? I'd have to say sports games stand out to me in that regard, the yearly release thing really hasnt been kind to the genre lol I get the impression practicallity of what you can find at conventions has sharply fallen, based on what you just said. Like having official soundtracks of shows you love is incredibly practical, as are whole ass books devoted to the visual designs of those shows. It all centers around a love for the show and provides some sort of benefit to you for buying it. Now don't get me wrong, you can technically get use out of a mouse pad with titties or a body pillow with a waifu on it, but they almost seem more like "gag gifts" than something someone would honestly want to use. What was the coolest thing you ever bought at a con?
  14. That's just awful man... Anime at its best is such a wholesome, spiritually enriching and thought provoking thing. Its a medium that built on emotion, the human condition, teaches life lessons that actively help the viewer on their own day to day lives. It sucks so hard to see how much of it ends up commercialised to hell and back for a quick buck. And honestly I feel like streaming didn't help the problem one bit because the rate at which anime is being churned out is so blindingly fast now that you can just feel how little soul actually makes its way into most shows. Animators should be paid more to work less, produce a lower quantity of anime and take longer on each individual project. How well do you remember the kind of merchandise you could find at conventions say... 10 years ago?
