[Blogging] Animation ring0tamegane likes/hates - My faourites/Hates

*Correct representation of my usual faec when watching animu*


Soooo, it seems like I've never, ever posted about my own usual taste for anime series. A single most important reason for making blog , as I stated on the intro-page, was to 'HYPE MADOKA MAGICA AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE'. Now I succeeded in it, and we all know how big that title is now~~ u.u~~ Thus, I need to twist my focus of my blog. Traffic for this shit-blog has been gradually increasing due to random 4chan fags who posts blog-thread to reverse-troll me as 'blog advertiser' (*thank you fags). Thus, it's time to really talk about what animation that I prefer or detest. This will be remain as featured post forever, and updated constantly.

  1. May I ask a question I'm curious...

    mm There is any SHAFT anime than you haven't watched?

    ReplyDelete
  2. @moichispa: I haven't watched Maria Holic + Nekomimi mode + Pre-shinbo Shaft releases other than REC.

    ReplyDelete
  3. >Animation studios...
    Where's BONES?
    Also, Production IG > JC-Staff !

    ReplyDelete
  4. I see that your heart is still not swaying to the wrong path! XD

    But you have made a big mistake! You forget to write top ten favorite characters and put Tore-sama on the first of your list!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm starting to love the WIIIIIIIIIDE face design now due to Madoka

  6. tsukuyomi owns man, best shinbo show

  7. Our tastes would be almost the same, the only real major difference is that I absolutely love K-ON while you despise it.

    I'm also a huge Hidamari Sketch fan which you seem to ignore mostly, but really, other than that we pretty much like the same things.

    ReplyDelete
  8. You forget to add Zexcs. It's a studio who primarily butcher anime titles based on ongoing works.

    ReplyDelete
  9. K-ON is shallow, same thing with Hidamari
    that is the main issue

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yeah, but so is every comedy show, Seitokai is also shallow as fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  11. What no Masahiro Ando? I am disappoint j/k

    No favorite seiyus, composers?

    some pretty obvious choices, since your a well known SHAFT fan, but I'm surprised to see put JCStaff so high.

    Got to ask though, why do you like SHAFT so much?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why bakemonogatari is first and szs only third? Both are good :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Bakemonogatari is partly comedy
    But it does not lack depth

    To give comedy depth, develop characters, unfortunately, most comedy animes' characters are just combined moe elements.

    ReplyDelete
  14. @ines93290: I don't know them since I avoid their products anyway. u.u~~

    @Anon 1: Shallowness is never an issue. But if it's boring, that's an issue.

    @Arabesque: Favourite Seiyuus will be added when I have fuckin time. Plus, the sole reason putting JC-staff high is due to the fact they did produce one of my favourite animations, such as Azumanga Daioh and Toradora. But there recent works are all very disappointing.

    I've been fan of Shaft since the start of my animu fanboysm. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the second animation I've ever watched if I exclude all my childhood-anime. Reason I like them? Shaft is a single studio who does B when every other studio does A. Without them, anime will loss variety.

    @Anon 3: I can't put everything in the first place, you know...

    @Anon 4: Correction, Bakemonogatari is 80% dialogs and 20% Shaft direction. That's what brings depth, comedy, characters, moeness, every element 'at the same time'.

  15. About the only thing that redeems Studio Deen in my eyes is Marimite, bar none.
