Re: AP 619 - Funny People

This is a tough topic to come up with an answer for. I usually do not like true comic relief characters, particularly when they are inserted into more serious stories for the sole purpose of being "funny". In fact those characters tend to annoy me more than anything else. Of course, when the story i...

Re: AP 618 - Fans

As far as the survey goes, I chose Reviews, since it is the core of the show, but I like all of the segments pretty evenly. With regards to the topic itself, I tend to buy merchandise, I'd guess. I have a "Laughing Man" decal on the back of my vehicle, for example. Subtle,and only insiders get the r...

Re: AP 617 - Gateway Drug

As a good parent and Animation fan, I felt it my duty to bring up my children with an appreciation for the artform, including Anime. I think the first anime I started them on was Digimon, but they don't seem to think that counts. So, if I had to guess, it was likely Full Metal Alchemist https://prox...

Re: AP 616 - Short Shows

There are only a couple of anime shorts that I have watched to the very end of their runs. Most of them are adaptions of 4-coma manga strips, and I can only recall a couple of them. (1) Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken ( I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying ) was a pretty enjoyable o...

Re: AP 615 - In Another World with _______

In Another World with My Ban Hammer.

With as many Isekai based on RPG games becoming reality, I would like the god-like ability to deal with any opponent like a MMO moderator.
*Boom* you're outta' here!

The following season could be "In Another World with My God Mode".

Re: AP 614 - Anime Eats

I've decided to not steal Joe's thunder and mention one of the dishes seen in Shokugeki no Soma , so I have to think of something else. I have tried a number of the traditional or common dishes seen in most anime already. And as a result I can't think of many others that make me want to try them. Bu...

Re: AP 613 - Read the Manga

I have been in the habit of trying to read the manga before a scheduled anime is set to aire. But in reverse, I have at times been so compelled by an anime series as to pick up on it in manga. The first was Hiromu Arakawa's Full Metal Alchemist . I got far ahead in the manga before the Brotherhood s...

Re: AP 612 - Learnding

Even though I am a bit of an Animation buff (and have been for many years), Shirobako did give me and (especially) my sons an inside look on the Japanese Anime industry. Inside info that was much appreciated.

Re: AP 611 - Favorite KyoAnime

I am going to go with Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! ( Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions ) as my main pick. I could list Full Metal Panic or Violet Evergarden or Beyond the Boundary or even Haruhi, certainly. But all in all, Chunibyo came at just the right time for me and my then nascent anime-watchi...
