Who watches Anime? (Page 595 of 619)

I binge watched Classroom of the Elite S1 and I have never in my life seen an anime with 10+ female characters that had a worse ratio of "annoying female characters" : "likable female characters."  The fact that it was still enjoyable despite that is pretty impressive.

Bonus points for having an MC that wasn't a beta bitch and/or one that let girls walk all over him.

I had a hard time getting into S2, and the ratio hasn't gotten any better. I quit at about 4 episodes, I suppose I'll watch the rest in one shot eventually.

Good animation, cool combat scenes, interesting characters and two redhead anime girls that break free from the stereotype of the tsundere redhead.

I'm very hopeful for the rest of this show.

S2 certainly has its impressive moments - but yes, it did seem to get off to an overly dry and technical and hard-to-get-interested-in start which was a bit off-putting - but it’s worth continuing to the end.

That is, if you can get interested in plans within plans within plans, as well as a guy who has both the intent and the means to do whatever it takes to get what he wants and to come out on top.

I'm right there with you on S2 so far.

For S1 I couldn't wait to see what happened next.  I was really looking forward to S2, but I'm 6 episodes in and I find myself frequently disinterested with what's happening on screen.  That first "test" they had was boring AF.  It was like the writer couldn't come up with a good idea for one and thought "well, maybe if I make it convoluted it will come off as smart."  It didn't.

And then the next "test" was just a straight up sports festival.  They really seem to be phoning it in so far.  Hopefully it quickly picks up.

I am a fan of the light novels but I honestly don't think they translate well into anime.  Or rather they are not being translated well.

Using the sports festival as an example.  That is book 5 of the series.  Book 5 is about 340 pages long.  The sports festival is announced on page 1 but doesn't begin until page 148.  If you were to count the number of pages in the light novel dedicated to the intricate scheming and plotting (before, during, and after the sports) and the number of pages dedicated to the actual sports you would get about an even split of 170 pages to 170 pages.  And honestly that is probably being generous to the actual sports part.  The books make the scheming every bit as or more important than the tests themselves.  The anime does exactly the opposite so it loses a lot of its intrigue.  

The first season was a lot closer to the actual books in that department which I think is why people seem to like it more.

Gundam seems to be an ever evolving show that loosely follows the theme of giant robots smash.  

Lately it seems the studios are focusing on throwbacks to old school gundam from long before Gundam Wing and Endlass Waltz. Gundam Wing was more about the individual teenage gundam pilots infiltrating and fighting on Earth.  Old school gundam seems to be more about nation states conflicts with political intereague, space navies and lots of mobile suit battles.

You might want to check out Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 or if you have Netflix check out Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway to get a feel for the current shows.

On the other hand some of the PV for The Witch of Mercury has lots of images of tween gundam pilots so my speculation about throwbacks to old gundam might be bunk. XD

I tend to get my components for improvised implements from the goodwill/value village.  It's kind of a neat little scavenger hunt that way.  I'm thinking something along the line of conduit or tubing would be more effective though.

I love Gundam Wing.  However, as RustedAce calls it that particular series is boy band gundam only slightly more grounded than G Gundam.

Gundam has always been about war, human conflict, and the contradictions there of. As well as the story of a Teenager getting his hands on a weapon system that carries world changing firepower.

Generally the question is always being asked if mankind can evolve beyond the need of war to solve it's problems.

Or alternatively the morality of ending war through dialogue and peace versus overwhelming force.

Thank you both for the recommendations.  I will check out the shows that were mentioned but I found some watch order lists and I might just start from the beginning.  It's pretty impressive to see that the original Gundam anime was aired in 1979 and they are still making series based on that idea 43 years later.

Part of what makes it so funny to me is that there are so many reasons it's idiotic that it's hard to list them all.

Unfortunately, most of such discussions I've seen took place on the old IMDB message boards and those are, sadly, long gone.

I think it was around Obama's second term (maybe late in the first term?), there was an organization that called itself something along the lines of the Zombie Response Team Zombie Squad, but it was an actual group with chapters that had meetings to do charity work, do first aid training, etc.  They also did some cosplay, with some members dressing up as zombie hunters, and others dressing up as zombies.  The information on 'zombie preps' was very similar to what you might find in an arfcom discussion, except guns and ammo were not mentioned in their literature, at all.

It was a bunch of leftists trying to use the zombie trend (Walking Dead, etc) to coax people into doing charity work and organizing for whatever they decided they needed to work on (such as political stuff).

I saw a few discussions that some of their members had with other people on social media, and they were dead set against the idea of going to a gun store and buying guns, then getting training in how to safely use guns, because guns are dangerous, and they didn't think people should be keeping guns in their homes.  ...but if the SHTF, their plan was to run to Walmart and loot the guns and ammo.

Kinda lends credibility to the "They don't trust themselves with guns, and therefore they assume you can't be trusted either" theory.

Best to order online. Anything you get at the chain lumber yards that's longer than 4' is gonna be 2 shorter pieces glued together.

When did they start that?  I have bought 8 foot lengths from Lowes (around 5 to 10 years ago), and they weren't pieced together.

ETA: Well darn, fiddlesticks, and fuck me.  I checked the Lowes and Home Depot websites, and you can still get a few diameters in 6 foot lengths, but most of their diameters are limited to 4 foot.  8 foot lengths seem to be a thing of the past.

At this point, I think it has moved beyond being a theory.

So, yes they did come through with a S2-ending ep. 13 of Classroom of the Elite, and they are indeed promising to release S3.

But even though they did set up a number of “stay tuned for the upcoming new season” plot tweaks (at least three or four distinct ones that I can remember) and they tossed a new-character-cum-monkey-wrench into the mix, and they also offered some new glimpses into Ayanokoji’s mindset and motivations (but at best only vague hints about what’s lurking in his background and how all of his plans and machinations might possibly be upended by unanticipated (?) factors), the whole thing was surprisingly tame and anticlimactic.

Sure, it would have been tough to maintain the intensity level of S2 ep. 12 - but I was expecting a bit more than what they delivered.

Finished "Why The Hell Are You Here, Teacher!?, Chizuru is best teacher.

Next series is either Classroom of the Elite S1, or The Misfit of Demon King Academy.

About to finish Shield Hero and Iroduku tonight, I'll probably start up Lycoris Recoil and Vermeil in Gold to replace them.
