  1. I'm normally not a fan of these kinds of anime, but something about Shokugeki is just oddly... intriguing? I honestly can't put my finger on it, lol. I think it's just the fact that they weaved the fanservice in a way that's actually purposeful. That in itself is already pretty impressive. This show also reminds me of Detective Conan for whatever reason. I think that might be because of the way the students always divulge the secrets to their dishes and explain why their ingredients or approach overshadowed their opponent's cooking. Kinda like how Conan always explains how the culprits screwed up in their murder attempts. I don't watch Yu-Gi-Oh but I can definitely see why you might think that, haha.

      Concept was okay, but the plot was a convoluted mess and the characters were unmemorable and asinine (the only half-decent character was L, honestly). I’m pretty sure I actually dozed off while watching it at some point.

       

      The only meritable part of the show was the first arc, which was somewhat engaging at least.

      Sorry to break your heart, dude :c

  6. DC movies have all been downhill for me, but hey, different strokes for different folks ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. I watched these movies a while ago but…………. Spider-Man Homecoming was gr8/8 it had so many overused tropes and dank memes but it was just executed so well end credits scene killed me tho Wonder Woman was ok premise was kinda cliche
  8. thread is dead but I figured I’d update my thoughts on here anyway so I finally got around to watching this movie and I’ve never seen Ran in a more vestigial role. ever. nothing about the movie would’ve changed if the producers took her out entirely ferris wheel design may also be one of the worst feats of “engineering” I’ve ever seen it took every ounce of effort to not burst out laughing in the middle of the night when the announcer lauded that it was the aquarium’s most important renovation everything else worth complaining about more or less stays the same between most DC movies but I appreciate the flashback they snuck in there oh no wonder it’s the highest-grossing DC movie to date lol
  9. School is done (for now) and I finally had the chance to finish Chrono Trigger (which I previously thought would never have the chance to play) and LIMBO. I loved Chrono Trigger for the Steins;Gate vibes and I loved LIMBO for its simplicity and puzzles. Both are fantastic games.
  10. sorry for interjecting, eheh, but yes please finish Steins;Gate. It’s good c: -- One Punch Man was nice. Got a little repetitive at times, but the overall concept of the show is still gold. Death Note was rather disappointing. It’s honestly a wonder why it’s so highly rated. Nostalgia factor maybe? None of the characters were particularly likeable or memorable except L, and even then he was still kinda bland. The concept was alright, and the first few episodes were pretty good, but it was downhill from there. I think my expectations were too high. That’s a shame, because I was actually really looking forward to watching this. At least the ending was okay. It went full-circle, which I can appreciate. But that still doesn’t change the fact that Death Note is a convoluted mess.
  11. Monster "After the game, the king and the pawn go into the same box." It's not a quote from the anime, but it came to mind as I was watching it. Monster is an interesting anime. A lot of emphasis is placed on equality of human life, which can be a touchy subject, but Monster does an outstanding job allowing the audience to formulate their own opinions through the perspectives of the characters. Is every person inherently equal? Should we value the life of one person over another? When there's no surefire indication of the potential each person holds, is it fair to value someone with immense power over a commoner? These are a few of the questions Monster addresses, some of which eventually become the crux of the anime. It spends no time sugarcoating the horrific psychological scars many characters acquire as they ruminate over questions of similar caliber. What made this anime fascinating wasn't the plot but its nonlinear narrative and characters. A sense of foreboding is developed immediately, and pieces of the storyline come together as backstories are dropped left and right. While the purpose of certain characters seem clear at some point, their motives become increasingly blurred as the anime progresses and more is revealed about their past. This is undoubtedly one of its strong suits and why Monster is so captivating. The intricacies of each character truly makes for a brilliant story. Another thing I want to point out is how open-ended the anime is. A lot of what happens is up to interpretation and speculation, which may or may not be to everyone's liking. A solid anime overall, but it isn't without flaws. For starters, it can get pretty predictable. This isn't necessarily the fault of the plot in itself but how it's conveyed. There are certain instances when the anime attempts to create tension but ends up falling flat. It's easy to see through quite a few of these "twists" though it's not a glaring issue. The main protagonist is also far too glorified in the anime. On a similar note, it's understandable that the purpose of the filler was to solidify Tenma's reputation, but it came off as repetitive, and adding so many throwaway characters for the sake of this is overkill. Because Monster is labeled as a psychological thriller, you'd think that the audience would get front row seats to how these massive scandals and manipulations occurred. Nope, the audience is left to grasp at straws wondering how any of this took place. It's a shame, really. With so many holes to be filled, the anime isn't nearly as realistic as it could've been. As a result, much of what happens behind the scenes (or even what the anime blatantly shows you) just comes off as hard to believe and leaves a lot to be desired. And revolving the story around a wild goose chase can get rather stale as well. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed Monster, and it honestly blows my mind how all of these events were woven together so intricately. However, that aspect is a double edged sword because it can be somewhat difficult to follow this labyrinthine of a timeline if you're not giving it your utmost attention. That being said, I appreciate what Monster tries to do, but its flaws impeded my enjoyment a bit too much for me to just brush off. ** would recommend Monster to anyone who wants to question their morals, or anyone remotely interested in the history of eugenics Tenma also reminds me of Kiritsugu.
