#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Magic Kaito 1412 Discussion

12 was all new, not based off the ova. Which was a nice change. Tho I think his revenge was a bit more than he normally would do. But all the money the store owner made off merch based on Kid can fix the store now an his legal fees.

The witch knows who he is mostly it seems. But she lacks tact when talking with him about Kid as this one episode proved. An it looks like the series is going at least for another episode. So 13 in all. Then I wonder if later on they will switch the lead in on Detective Conan again ?

Edit hmm http://anilist.co/anime/20790/MagicKaito1412 has it at 24 episodes so if true its the lead in till spring for sure. If they was smart they would switch back an forth tween kid an http://www.animevice.com/kindaichi-case-files-returns/11-6891/ as both have given Detective Conan huge boost in ratings.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Le Fruit de la Grisaia Discussion

@Wraith: Thanks for the info. Yeah some parts felt filer like an people were saying it should have been 23 to 26 episodes to get the vn feel. I think anime sees any thing with out shonen roots or already proven record as a high risk past 12. Hopefully this will change because it will limit anime not just because of cost but it will hinder its enjoyability. One of things I love in anime is long story form, over arcing story plots , an long journeys of at least 24 episodes.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Le Fruit de la Grisaia Discussion

13 ended fairly well tho I did not need to see a animated pitched pants tent. Um it says next time so it seems this will have another season at some point? Can not find more info but the series thinks their will be a next time!

Other than some parts that felt filler ( an again not read the light novel or seen the manga) based on the series it was above average. It had far more good moments then bad in story telling. Animation was pretty good. The wide screen look for wile was interesting an novel way to save cost. Not a harem at this point tho but fans of harems should find something new here.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

@takashichea: His is bit different. Hes on another level to the rest of the Sins. In the next two or so episodes if they follow the manga as close then you will see how vast his power is. Serious ramp up of power potential. An I agree his tattoo is solid. All of them are well designed but his has meaning the dragon eating its own tail. Anger , Wrath that consumes it self.

Show does have some serious levels of interest in it for sure.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Log Horizon Discussion

@Wraith: I am bit longer in the tooth with mmorpgs . I go back 11 years with Everquest. Played about 3 months of World of Warcraft ( may go back ). 3 years of City of Heroes. Um 2 years of The Secret World. Got about half a year in on Warframe tho its kinda a mmorpg an kinda not. Um had over a year in Guild Wars to. Half a year with Age of Conan.

With WoW or Everquest the general rule was about 2/3rd of female characters were male. Of the rest female or as they say in social media "complicated". Most of the time I was in family guilds so in those you pretty much knew who was really female an who was not. Oddly enuff http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GIRL has a odd write up of it as well here http://www.themarysue.com/male-gamers-female-avatars/

One guy in EQ had the whole guild but 3 people fooled. Most thought he was female but he was a gay male. Who liked to cause mischief. Until you hear them in a voice chat its better to just figure they are a guy.

Games like Warframe gender lock what is basically a "class" there so if you want to play a frame / class your stuck being what ever gender the frame is. In general I don't care who is what just how they play an act. Tho as a male I prefer not to play a game as a female.

Back to Log Horizon episode 12. The younger members even point out its obvious that she is a he. The " sisbro" slip. its kind of hard to catch that in anime but if we think back how obnoxious the character acts an hides behind the tank so much. "She" was hiding in plain sight so to speak.

13 & 14 add to the pending big space battle. Still they set up for this big battle an some parts seem confusing . basicly you have 4 sides tho 2 are working together. were just learning what the new side wants. good stuff tho bit confusing.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Ai Tenchi Muyo Discussion

Seen all 60 episodes now an believe it will be released as a movie later on. Or at least made into 2 part movie. 60 episodes in all 10 were flashback catch up episodes so reall its under 50 x 5 minutes. Fans of Tenchi should enjoy it well enuff. New folks to the Tenchi universe will be a bit lost. It will go in my list of average an above with a * noting it would be much better for those Tenchi universe fans.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

@takashichea: Thats actually a good comparison. Happy an Hawk bot serve as comic straight men to lighten the shows. Thing with Hawk is this his mother is the giant green pig that carries the Boar Hat. So he magically tuff maybe on par with Giants but not strong at all.

@taichokage: Thinking of the Oni Cliche type of things in anime its a given when you have such a rich history of so many spirits in that culture. Nothing screams magic out of control like Oni. Bleach is another good comparison to this anime, tho not in tone but power ramp up. Sure you can compare supernatural aspects but its that power ramp up that both do . Tho I would argue that Seven Deadly Sins (SDS) ramps up much faster.

If it was a Dungeons & Dragons Campaign we would refer to it as rich magic world campaign. The divide from haves an have not's in power is vast.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Madan no O to Vanadis Discussion

13 was a good end for the most part. Open enuff for a second season, but strong enuff to close the arc. Few other anime this season have tried to do this as well but it plays out better here. For all its poor cgi chibi strat map crap the rest was well above average. Some was great even. Tho I will point out a few of the bigger battles in the back ground characters just hack at each other endless cycle.

I will add this to my average an above. With out the cgi map crap I would have loved this series a lot more than just like it as it is now.

12 was ok . Bit of light comedy for the episode, tho it almost had a filler feel so to speak.

@Wraith: @takashichea: The phrase is G.I.R.L. which means Guy In Real Life. Some games your forced to play a gender due to gender class lock. But most mmorpgs give you a choice . An odds are the girl you see in game is a G.I.R.L. more often then not. Just always best to assume its a guy at the keyboard.

@takashichea: Yeah it was a fun one. Will check out your list a bit latter. Site is slow as a glacier for me atm.

@LHWKnight: Ok good. Looks like we all pretty much have the same opinion maybe a degree or two difference. A lot of other site comments went on about how open perverted the main male lead was. I just thought he was honest.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Trinity Seven Discussion

@LHWKnight: So you think it is above average then by that rating? Perspective wise more for the overall story or the harem aspects? Because the harem aspects were fun.

@Wraith: An you agree with me its average . Some poster on other sites pointed out that the grimore never show in their human form again after the one fight. Guess we were supposed to assume they were tired an a sleep from the "final" battle". Some were pointing out like me how the animation budget was used up so no animation for them at the end.

@takashichea: The world build was confusing. The rules of magic was nothing new or inspired, an kind of forgettable the way it was presented. The harem part was its strength an the magic part seemed a weakness . It seems to have brought out the love or hate response on some boards comment sections. Fans of what its based on seem to hate it more than not.

If I Look at it as a harem with magic bits the harem parts were fun but the magic bits did not carry it to the fun harem parts. An if I look at it as a magic action adventure with harem bits it looks worse. First anime in a long while I felt was just average but maybe just barely average an not worth to make the list. Maybe the animation drop on the end hurt it for me more to. May add it with a * asterisk note later on.

12 death flag raised , an saluted.

@takashichea: @LHWKnight: Part of the problem with this anime is hype! Plus its at times predictable. There is a dry investment in the main character after the episode where he came back to school hes kind of calm creepy not slick an cool as it looked when he came back. Its a bit above average but this season has so many beyond good anime the sliding scale does not help this show.

@takashichea: Good point on the hand chopping. It was not graphic not needed to be. But still got its point across. In comics years ago I read a comic artist explained being subtle with violence has more of a impact than shock value of gore. That holds true mostly with graphic art but animation its rare to see it used so well an be so subtle. Trigger did good there.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Case Closed Discussion

761 + 762 are the tour mysteries. This type of arch seems to happen at least once a season. Its showing off parts of Japan with a added mystery. More often then not the tour people are the case causers an or culprits . Odds are this is a filler type arch I think.

Pattern I have with this show is to avoid the 1st bit till after the intro is over. Mostly to avoid spoilers. Then at the end skip the song an check after that. Because some times theirs 5 more minutes of show that can tie into the over arching story. Or just the punch line end. Then avoid the preview for the next episode. Wash an repeat. It makes the show bit more fun an far less predictable.

edit

@takashichea: Um not sure if ya seen this http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-12-23/japan-animation-tv-ranking-december-8-14/.82487 Detective Conan was number 1 with a 10 share! Amazing for a show this old.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Trinity Seven Discussion

12 best quote was " lucky pervert" an a lot of flash in combat but very little animation. Seriously the animation budget was on fumes by this point an it shows. Some sites are saying this is the end at 12 an if so another open in season ender. Taken as it is they go along happy ending. Or if their is another season you can pick up whith the girl coing back. This episode an few others really drop my liking overall of this series.

Average now is where I think it stands. Muddled story , odd plot progression , lack of animation quality tword the end of the season just barely hangs on to average. An not sure if will add it to the list. Not to say it did not have some enjoyable parts.

@takashichea: Yup its a mess fans of the series are pretty vocal. New to the series like me seem as confused by the plot . The strength of the show was he was not ashamed about being a pervert. If this gets another season I would be surprised.

12 was ok, tho its end was not good for closure. So that knocks it down a bit. Still overall it was fun an probably will get a second season. Some of the story bits were great an Trigger always brings thier A game to the comedy parts an animation. I would say its above average an makes my list.

@Wraith: Good summery. Even tho it was a harem it felt less harem-ish so to speak. Open ending for season 2 hurt it more than any thing else in the season did. So if we get season 2 the battle goes on. If not the ending is happy days that we assume they have together. Very meh ending for a season as its not a cliff hanger but open ended for if their is a season 2 or not.
