He he he
last journal was quite interesting and to all those who shared thankyou and thankyou again
I am feeling adventurous, I wanna know? what is your favourite anime and why? and I wanna know what is your least favourite anime and why?Warning wall of text begins here, if you read it all, you will get a cookie
Also a little disclaimer, this is MY opinion, you don't need to agree, and if you want to comment on anything I have said? feel free, or rant even? I will just be happy you read it all
Mine, I would say Deathnote but there are a few holes in it that bring it down a bit ( L's almost psychic ability when it comes to deciphering the truth or predicting peoples actions especially when he has absolutely no valid path to his conclusion which I might add is always correct ) same goes for Light. I know they are suppose to be 'super smart' but even super smart people need to have a reason for how they came to their conclusion. The whole anime felt boxed in its own little world, by that I mean you didn't get the feeling that the whole event took place on a global setting. The upsides to the anime would have to be that it is refreshingly different and I like the fact it focused on an anti hero. Lights decent into madness was done very well and it had some very interesting characters along the way, though a lot of them I really didn't connect with or like very much.
So I would say my favourite anime at this point is Tiger & Bunny. Upsides and downsides? The downsides I would have to say is that there is currently no second season.....T^T That is all. Each character in T&B is well crafted and likeable, I have never watched an anime where I liked every single character or where the main character has been my favourite. Kotetsu is a fantastically original character who constantly develops through out the anime and isn't overdone but isn't boring at all. The idea of sponsored super heroes is pretty awesome too and the mech suits look badass, not to mention the anti hero kicks ass too. But if I am really going to be picky the only thing that bothered me a tiny bit is some of the scenes weren't exactly great quality and I wish they hadn't animated the other heroes (it worked great for the mechs but didn't really work to well for the other characters) I could blabber on all day bout why I love this anime but I will spare you the wall of text.
Now for the worst!
I don't watch/read a lot of anime/manga, I tend to latch onto one at a time. I have watched Zoids (new and old century) Ultimate Muscle (which I adored and still do, even though it was ridiculous) Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Bleach, Death Note, Alfen Lied, Durarara, Tiger and Bunny, a bit of Evangellion, and a bit of Ghost in a Shell and after school nightmare.
Naruto.... it went of the rails...badly.... but only in the anime, the manga is fine if you can read the whole thing due to the fact its like 500 chapters and still ongoing. Kishimoto has a great knack for crafting intricate plots that fall into place perfectly though I never really connected with any of the characters, and all the ones I did were either killed off or ....come to think of it they all were... So I lost interest, that doesn't necessary make it bad, though the anime fillers were BEYOND HORRIFIC! each filler was like a bad fanfiction.
So the worst is Bleach. By far. Horrific to the point of no redemption. If you can tolerate the mangled plot, the overpowered unbalanced characters are sure to deliver the killing blow for the story's remote chances of making any sense...
I am sorry Kubo but you are a terrible writer....and I mean terrible. Tite Kubo's art is fantastic and dynamic but it is clear he whored his manga to Shounen and stretched it beyond what he had originally intended. The biggest no no is that he actually FORGOT huge pieces of the plot. The part where Aizen wanted Orhime to repair the Hogyoku and then subsequently wondered off, completely forgetting about it and it turns out that the Hogyoku worked anyway. Also where Mayuri finds the hanging bodies and then leaves the audience wondering...forever...since the relevance or purpose of that scene is never revealed. He also discards characters left and right while introducing so many new ones that it makes it hard to keep track. Those are all bad points but not the worse. The worst thing in Bleach is Ichigo. He has the personality of a wet sock but everyone loves him unconditionally. He also power-ups more than Goku. He goes from having his ass kicked by a random nobody in the woods to man handling a lieutenant in the space of merely a few episodes, not just that he wondered straight into soul society mowing down any captain that gets in his way. Don't forget these captains are hundreds of years old and are specialized in their craft but Ichigo who is 15, and hasn't been a shinigami for more than a month chops them all down like straw, one after another, with barely any break. Not just that he is revived from the dead, twice, and once just because his super hollow powers revived him through friendship. He beat Aizen who was the second most horrificaly overpowred character in the series. What really made me want to bash my face into the table was that even in Ichigos form before Mugetsu...HE WAS WAY STRONGER THAN AIZEN! But alas he was too strong so Kubo decided to make him even stronger even though he could already defeat Aizen with little to no effort
in exchange for his powers. Which... wait for it...made him lose?
I don't want to talk about Bleach any more T.T yes I enjoyed it for a while but that is only because it has good yaoi shipping potential, that is all. I don't even like Death Note yaoi or T&B yaoi because the plot alone is enough for me T^T
