So, in a similar fashion to an earlier thread of mine (shamelessly linked here for anyone who wants to check it out and vote Click Here for the Post! on Magical Girls), I've been wondering about all of your thoughts about the Slice of Life genre. What is really Slice of Life to you? Do you enjoy or dislike them? And why? Which ones are your favorites, and why did it stand out amongst the crowd? What was your first Slice of Life?
To me, Slice of Life is a big change in pace from what I usually enjoy watching. I've only ever collected a handful for my library but have doubtlessly enjoyed them (even the ones that I thought were a bit slow and strange!). I tend to consider them as Slice of Life's whenever I find myself unable to label them as anything else...which probably means my grasp of Slice of Life as a genre needs more development haha... For the most part, I've enjoyed the ones I've seen. My favorite would probably be HaNaYaMaTa with its color and music. I suppose having a plot to follow helped (I get lost in the plotless ones lol). My first (that I finished) was Non Non Biyori which is impressive since I spent most of the first season trying to figure out what the plot was LMAO. The first I started was Hanasaku Iroha (which I only had half of the first season in my possession at the time).
So, what are all of your thoughts of the genre? And don't be shy guys I think Slice of Lifes tend to end up in a forgotten group. Maybe it is because they aren't as flashy as some other genres.
So i am so happy! I just bought my first ever Manga, which is Death Note and i love it so much!! I love books with background images and writing notes inside so you can actually notice what's going on it's fantastic It is my first ever Manga that i will be reading, but i definitely will be buying other manga books too!
I still do prefer Anime over Manga, though just because it's colourful Please let me know any Manga, you think is worth me buying!
What do you guys think about Manga, and what was your first manga you read?
I know that this is completely random. But have you ever had that feeling where you had a weird and strange day, Watching Anime always makes you smile at the end. 😀It gives you a buzzing feeling, and ends your day on a really good note because of Anime? Whenever i watch Anime i just get that warm feeling, Because i know that i will never get bored of Anime!!!! Its freaking awesome and Kawaii😀😍🙂
Anyway, i just wanted to know if anybody else had that same feeling watching Anime or even after watching it. It would definetely depend on what kind of Anime you are watching, but yeah!
So ever had that feeling before?
At the moment im currently watching, Tomodachi I have no friends!!! Its such a great Anime
I saw this picture on Instagram and was shocked. So can someone please say if it is real or fake.
So, I read this article this morning (Japanese Twitter has some funny topics sometimes) and it got me thinking.... what makes an anime world class?
I guess to me, it would have to loved by all and known in most major countries. That means, no nasty debates over whether it is good or bad (that means SAO is what an Otaku might think is world class). I would consider that it would also have to avoid the tropes too many anime fall into (harems, ecchi, groping, etc). I guess for me, my Miyazaki and some of my Shinkai anime would qualify...I can understand Ghost in the Shell being included too. Maybe even Cardcaptor Sakura.
What do all of you think? What would your definition be? Have any World Class or Otakus might think is... in your collections?
