@zaldar: I refuse to believe that this works for non-fans, it would seem a bit of a mess truth be told.You're right in that a lot of the familiarity with the characters is lost in translation, Nanako being one of the main culprits of this. In the show she is seemingly wheeled out at regular intervals to remind the audience that she is important in some way, you'd probably dislike ...

[quote]Though, things could be a lot worse. As to Teddie's transformation into a human. I don't know if it's just me, but his speech feels more annoying as a human than as a talking bear.[/quote]The voice itself is wierd but I don't find it that jarring when placed on his new form, after all this is Teddies interpreation of what qualities he deems important in a human. As he mentions ...

@mutha3: I was referring more to the artbooks themselves, I don't own any version of the works book. But yeah they have text for each page pretty much and I'd be curious to read all that in English, especially considering how much overt symbolism is embedded in the game and the designs.Christ, I forgot about the hot springs scene, and we know that Nanako will still be included after the ...

@FoxxFireArt said:@Hailinel: @mutha3: @Babylonian:Yes, because as we all know Western culture doesn't overtly sexualize real life teenage girls. That is if you don't count Britney Spear, Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore, Miley Cyrus, The Olsen Twins. I could go on.Do I even need to bring up Toddlers & Tiaras. Game, Set, and Match. That show actually had a toddler dressed up as a hooker from Pretty Woman. How it's still on ...

Pretty much everything about how I feel about the Kanji situation has been discussed already in some form so I'll leave it at that.@MohsinMan99 said:Seems like people are getting a bit too worked up over Yu's personality. In my honest opinion, it looked like the staff was just trying for a few laughs with that line.Well he actually has one now so there was always bound to be a few ...

@Ryu_Kishin said:I disliked the catfight scene as well, Chie would have kicked her ass. They spent the previous two episodes establishing that she's a tough chick. This show doesn't have have the investigation team fighting themselves but Chie's physicality is a major part of her character that is shown through her persona and a lot of her actions.For the most part she just imitates what she has seen in movies, ...

I'm sold purely on the preview picture for this article, which I guess means I'm in the target audience for this show, right?I can always make room for crazy whatever the case.

@mutha3 said:@PewPewLazers said:@mutha3:Maybe I'm easily pleased, I'm just happy to see something of better quality than the crappy animation that was included in the game!Haha, true enough.Though, I do have a certain amount of respect for how those scenes turned out after reading up on how ghetto as hell their methods in making them were!Are you referring to that being outsourced?It was nice to know certain things from those scenes ...

@mutha3: As good as P4's art-direction is, to recreate Soejima's art for the Anime is probably too big an ask. But I do definitely agree that it deserves better, no arguments there. I was just adding my take on the whole thing in what seemed an overly negative sentiment in general, not to single out anyone in particular.Maybe I'm easily pleased, I'm just happy to see something of better quality ...

@mutha3: The S-Links will have to be relegated, like you say 25 episodes seems like an amount where they can afford to dedicate any significant screen-time to what were optional scenes in the games. But judging from the next episode preview they might be using it to further an alternate plot strand they intend to introduce, hopefully.For all the debate about the subtlety (or rather the lack of) in the ...

@Mesoian: Ah, okay. That's what I was hoping to hear in all honesty, bar the poor ending of course. In general I find most interesting shows/films have a hard time concluding, especially when they are based on some sort of mystery. I'd have the exact same criticism about Death Note but then again I am completely satisfied having watched it.

Death Note would be my nomination too, I think I'm going to try to convince one of my friends to start watching it that said. I think the mystery/thriller aspects will appeal to someone who regularly watches shows such as Lost, it basically shares the same sort of structure after all. It was definitely one which served as a bridge for me to become more interested in Anime.

PewPewLazers replied to the topic Anime that were a pleasant surprise on the Off-Topic board.
Eden of The East, didn't really look into what it was about but saw it for sale on BR for a ridiculous price (£10!) so decided to pick it up. A slow-burn for sure, but at the same time its really economical with the time it has, if that makes any sense at all! I went through it in a couple of days and bought the first movie straight after. ...

I had a quick look around and I'm mostly getting images of mechs, it that the main focus? I'm still unsure exactly what this is and would like to know.Just finished Death Note so I'm eager to find another series to jump into.

I enjoyed Episode 1 of Persona 4, it seems to be establishing a brisk pace which I'm all for!

I'm realizing that I have NO CLUE about what's airing in Winter 2014 and no idea what to watch.

Batman is Anime, and Zelda's an RPG. These are a few of the most dumbest (sic) things.
