#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Maria The Virgin Witch Discussion

Watched episode 2. I was confused by the laws in this show. You have a witch defending human lives and not taking any of them. Angels in heavens don't do crap. Also, mixing Norse mythology in with the Christianity and Roman Catholic themes, the Valkyries, in this show adds a huge mess in this series.

Because we have a large cast of characters, the anime does a fine job of meshing them together. My main gripes is that the show tends to jump around in the 3rd episode from one group to another. Unlike season 1 where I was completely lost, I know the characters more which made me understand them better.

Episode 15 was great. It had a good mix of explanations and action scenes. Love Jin's and Ai's group's fights. It's weird how mellow this series is. It's like a game to them. Once they bail out after being defeated, a receptionist greets them. They watch the fight.

@Marshal Victory:

Ah, I see your point. The next episode, Death Arcade, has video games. I can't really make a prediction. Every game jogs their memories at a price. Darts was giving them pain. Bowling didn't result much in a loss of anything. I think the arcades might have a penalty.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Toriko Discussion (Manga)

@taichokage:

I agree with you. It was a confusion in the branding of Toriko when marketing it for the anime. It is a quite a contrast from the manga series. The anime series began as a crossover with One Piece, and it has been piggy backing on One Piece in order to introduce the series. One Piece is way more flexible with its audience and can appeal to younger and older audience than Toriko. I remember the Ending song for Toriko was educating children to eat healthy.

@Jinbeifan1:

The OVA, Toriko Jump Super Anime Tour Special 2009, (I need to add to the wiki) was produced by Ufotable. I think you were talking about that one. Yes, that OVA came before the anime series (2011).

@EVA_01:

I need to check if used it for his past caption contest articles. I haven't used that image. Loved how Shaft does the neck tilts.

Oh, you gave me a great idea for a theme, Shaft Theme. Thanks for the image!

@Bigheart711:

Great! Tokyo Ghoul is also great for October when it comes around. When the anime ends this year, we have a lot of good images to pick out.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Toriko Discussion (Manga)

One Piece is the biggest cash cow in Toei, and I believe Toei had done more for One Piece than Toriko from a business perspective. That's my guess. Rather than continuing to produce Toriko episodes, they focus on popular shows, One Piece and Sailor Moon.

I feel Toriko has more a niche audience compared to other Shonen series who can broadly appeal to more people, casual, hardcore fans.

It's a bit upsetting for folks who want to see the rest of the manga animated. All we can do is hope, petition, send mails, or Twitter response to the author and the company.

Everyone - please feel free to submit any images or suggest themes. I would gladly take them. Sometimes, Daniel and I will run out of what to showcase on the caption contest articles. We do it each week.

Thanks! Nice, I definitely use that image.

Battles » Rinka Urushiba vs Kitty Pryde

@Saladking said:

Didn't Rinka beat up some kid who had precog or something?

I remember Ayumu Oozora was defeated because he was thinking too much. This negatively affect Ayumu's reaction time. Rinka will counter Ayumu instead of attacking him first, generating tons of potential moves.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Toriko Discussion (Manga)

@Jinbeifan1:

You are not off-topic. The Manga and Toriko Discussion (Anime) are intertwined. The anime was made so anime only fans can discuss without seeing spoilers from the manga which is usually ahead of the anime.

I agree the manga is better than the anime. It's because of the reasons:

  • Manga is usually more easier and cheaper to produce compared to anime. I don't think Toei Animation took a break with Toriko. They were putting episode after episode.
  • I heard folks wanted another studio, like MadHouse, to produce it.
  • I believe the anime's popularity and sales wane compared to Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, and others.

Maybe some of you might correct me. Wasn't the anime catching up to the manga back in 2014? I don't think Toriko had a lot of fillers.

Seen episode 3. I didn't expect that twist at the end. I hope the show does more things than featuring couples or folks who were in love. Two guy friends or two lady friends.

I was surprised that the bowling game wasn't visceral pain like the darts in episode 1. I was expecting another painful episode.

Ep. 2

More world building which is great. Got to know more classmates, more about the alien, and the government. Ep. 1 was rushed and didn't leave much for folks to go on.

Biggest highlight was seeing a female version of Shiroe. I didn't remember anything else about the episode since I was working on wiki moderation at night after getting home late.
