Gambling anime grievance 2017

Postby Kegis В» 13.11.2018

.

Sure shows is nothing to snuff at but it took me 15 years to get to that record. That said I still have a certain amount of confidence of having seen most of the exceptional shows from although these choices still align based on my tastes and what I find great or exceptional. So sorry if none of your favorites gets mentioned also to keep it short will only mention a few of the ones that caught my eye per year, my pick of anime of the year.

Where to start? I feel as if people tend to not care about some anime as soon as the season is over. I believe every year has some gems and stinkers and the only thing that really varies is the ratio of each of those. To be fair I have yet to even mention my tippity top contender for anime of the year in all of these, despite having enjoyed most of these titles to varying degrees.

You see, my top 3 picks for anime of the year is actually 3 anime in particular, Puella magi madoka magica, Steins Gate and Mawaru penguindrum. Although seeing some rather impressive titles that came out in and some of these being among my favorites it is definitely apt to say that was not a sorry year for anime. A winner in my books actually. The director of Penguindrum also directed a cult classic in Revolutionary Girl Utena and is known in his other small projects like opening of aoi hana, sailor moon etc to inject his own flair into things and is very heavy at times with imagery.

One thing though is for sure, Ikuhara truly knows how to make an engaging and engrossing story, with intriguing, complex and nuanced characters and his symbolisms, contemplations and narrative and visual devices he uses definitely add to the whole experience of his works. The story of Penguindrum is about 2 brothers who will do anything to save their little sister from her fatal fate due to her poor health and instead they get dragged into a twisting, turning, converging and confusing tale of destiny, fate, a pink book, apples, penguins and weird transformations.

Penguindrum jumps between timelines, through means of flashbacks and despite many rightful outcries of gimmick, it still works in its favor more often than hurts it once you get a hang of it and unless you have little patience in trying to figure things out, then you would undoubtedly be confused and engrossed in how all of these people, their past, present and possible future are connected with each other and what is the bigger picture they are trying to get at.

The animation is something I enjoyed and I liked the figures of people in the background, clearly telling you these are irrelevant to the story and this show, here we only draw what is relevant to all of this. The songs are great overall, especially the opening song and I find it intriguing the ending song changed with which VA was singing it. Overall Mawaru Penguindrum is a must-watch for those that enjoy symbolism, a rich, convoluted at times, but enticing story, intriguing characters and unorthodox story-telling.

Ikuhara fans in particular will definitely enjoy Penguindrum. Steins Gate is the best time travel anime out there and the chemistry between kurisu and okabe is infectious and darn did I find it a gripping watch after it hit its midway point.

However as a whole while it had some solid enough titles nothing particularly blew me away although some of these shows did indeed make my top anime.

However there were two in particular that were really exceptional and although both of them lacked to oomph to blow my sock off, I still found them the best that came out this year. The other pick of mine is Bakuman season 3, which in my opinion was the best season of the anime and it just brought everything together in such a satisfying manner for a conclusion, I love this show.

The characters are quirky and a lot of fun and apart from a few annoying or unpleasant ones here and there, Bakuman is binge anime material even though s2 does have quite a few of dips in it at times. I recommend this to anyone that wants to know more about the manga industry even if they do give a more rose colored perspective more often than not, it was still fascinating. On the other side we have kids on the slope that essentially is a coming of age tale with 3 friends bonded over their love of jazz and appreciation of each other, but coming into adulthood, the separation and graduation from high school and people having different goals in life do bring some disruption in the status quo at times.

Choosing a favorite was really hard for me, because both Psycho-Pass and Shinsekai Yori were done airing this year and Kyousogiga is something I never expected to blow me away as much as it did. Of course there are other shows that aired this year. And here comes the truly hard part. I love dystopian works, so both shinsekai and Psycho-Pass speak to my tastes, however Psycho-Pass speaks specifically to my fondness of cyberpunk so I will give it the win.

Yeah, especially since I do honestly believe Shinsekai has an impeccably written story that blows Psycho-Pass away, that said I could never connect with the characters of shinsekai as much as those on Psycho-Pass. No less so than the gripping and shocking revelations in shinsekai, but its characters and the feel of PP as a whole speaks to me like not many other shows have.

To note this is season 1 of Psycho-pass because s2 is nothing short of a travesty. Was a good year? Heck yeah for me, this year was even better than because this year gave me 3 shows that are in my top 20 anime of all time. Long running series HxH came to an end this year, alongside less popular, but also solid series Space Brothers.

And while I believe awarding them anime of the year would be understandable for those that would like to do so, I find it a bit more unusual with long running series, because I believe what makes both those series is yes individually strong episodes and arc, but bigger even the whole experience and some of their parts is what makes me elevate these works among my favorites of all time.

That said slippery slopes when having to judge solely on episodes that aired that year and while I no doubt they were excellent if I wanted to bother to go check that up apart from having a vague memory of them, so these two will not be choice as either runner up or anime of the year, but that does not mean I do not believe they are amazing, because they absolutely are in my eyes.

He made Cowboy bebop after all! While I enjoy the calm and relaxing nature of mushishi I will have to give it 2nd runner up this time around. Kill la kill is such a fun anime for me, I have legit seen it 4 times already and wouldn't mind seeing it again. Also I'm a trigger fan for the most part and I tend to enjoy a decent amount of their works. From the crazy block text intros to the absurds situations and humor and the wonky and fluid animation I just really had a blast with this show and I enjoy a lot of the characters as well.

To be fair keeping in account space brother and HxH and the titles that I enjoyed this year had 4 titles among my top 25 of all time, so I rate this is an even better year than , what does have in store for us? This year was perhaps the easiest choice to make so far. So while Garo:Honoo no Kokuin and Ushio to Tora are also among my favorite anime, garo because it does an intriguing and dark sentai anime adaptation that sadly none of the anime sequels have come close to rivaling.

Ushio to tora is a solid shounen in my eyes and although it does have its flaws and tropes of the shounen demographic in general, it also executes them rather well and has enough elements in it to come off as fairly refreshing.

So I would make ushio to tora 2nd runner up of this year and Garo: honoo no kokuin is 1st runner up. Shirobako starts off with a group of friends in high school that end up making an anime together and they make a promise to each other that each of them will go in a respective field in the anime industry and end up making an anime together. And so we fast-forward to a few years later, where most of them are trying to find a place in the adult world in the anime industry, we follow our lead, Aoi miyamori in particular as she works for production assistant and has to make sure everything smooths over with cuts being done on time and everyone doing their job so that the episode and ultimately the anime can be completed in time.

Actually the tension and hardships of growing up and coming to term with reality and your ideal or imagined picture of how you wanted it to be is also things that gets brought up. Mostly though the cast of characters are darn engrossing and I love most of their dynamics and I love all the facets of the anime industry we are shown, sure a more rose-colored portrayal still no doubt, but it does at times make a very poignant statement to just how thankless a job in this industry tends to be and it explored through this stance also what many of their motivation is to continue in such an industry, is it passion, money, recognition?

Is hard work truly enough? While it never directly answers some of the questions it touches upon throughout its run, it definitely goes about giving a message that if you have a dream you have to strive towards it no matter what, and sometimes you will need luck and help from others to achieve your goal.

Shirobako ultimately does have a more optimistic answer and outlook on stuff, at the very more than Girlish Numbers, although I have to admit I have come to like that show as well. Although it paints a more pessimistic side to the industry that is perhaps a lot more sobering. Shirobako is actually in my top 15 anime of all time and It has remained there since it finished airing. What a year. As I can understand since an anime about making dictionaries will definitely not be well-liked by many and just be writing off as a snoozefest, but I ended up enjoying the mature tone of it all and the relationship of those involved as well as the imageries and comparison drawn between words, oceans and linguistics with the visuals presented.

As a whole this year was great for slice of life with strong, comfy and relaxing works such as Flying witch and Amanchu. While Amanchu edged out Flying witch by a bit, because of water imageries and the adorable muppet gay scuba girls, flying witch with its countryside scenery, the simple wonder of learning magic and the subtle yet soothing elements of the interaction of the characters makes flying witch a perfect anime if you want some downtime, actually both of them do.

Lastly I will give 3rd runner up this year to anime short by the name of Space Patrol Luluco, of which I had an absolute blast with. Directed by Imaishi that also directed Gurren and Kill la Kill and encapsulating the usual frenetic and zany animation and narrative progression as most of his works we have the totally insane show that has more things happen in its 14 minute episode including op and ed song than full episodes have occurring in a few episodes at times.

As the 2nd runner up we have the 2nd season of Ushio to tora, that was even better than the first one in many regards and goodness Hakumen no mono legit scares me, not many anime villains unsettle me as much as this one with its weird creepy eyes and sinister grin. Lastly the first runner up this season is definitely 3 gatsu no lion, about a teenage shogi player that suffers from depression and just how he deals with life, rivals, his purpose in life and moving forward.

If anyone told me before this anime came out that a show about essentially Japanese storytelling would be my anime of the year I would be skeptical. However halfway through season 1 I was already completely enchanted and it took no more than the 2nd or 3rd episode to convince me that this show was something special. As is it, rakugo stands as one of the best drama anime I have ever seen and one of the well-written ones too. From the dynamics of the characters to the flashback depicting how everything is tied and engaging characters and the enticing love triangle going on in general as well as the historical setting and the contrast of very different leads that are also best friends striving towards the same goal these and so much more make rakugo into a damn good show in my eyes.

Maybe it will no doubt come off boring to some, but I loved it, even more so after a rewatch. After which it has cemented itself into my top anime of all time.

While Made in abyss was definitely interesting and I am curious to see what else diving deeper into the abyss holds, but I definitely do not consider it anime of the year, actually it makes my top 10 anime of the year. The first runner up goes to breakout show of the year in houseki no kuni. Some pictures and gifs were taken from Tumblr. I dont know why ppl are salty about yuri on ice , my thing is like it hate it ,but leave the fandom alone. Yoi did alot of number ones you could see the sales where always high rocked , the thing is no one expected yoi to become so popular not even sayo and kubo thought that :grin: so that one thing about it.

Still i love yoi but i love all the anime , i dont highly agree with wars because a anime is popular or not , for me each anime has his own story and style we should apprciated the work who does the anime and not put it down , doing a anime is hard work otaku s should appriciate that. I didn't put anyone down though, personally I think Yuri on Ice is a good Anime, I just wish season 2 they would define the relationship more and actually work on the in-between shots xD also the songs were great.

I think Gino could have used more screen time in season 2 cause his character development as an enforcer was the hing I was most looking forward to and I thought the final episode felt a little rushed but overall I loved it.
