another character-driven manga worth considering IMO is wakusei no samidare (or hoshi no samidare. The translation/interpretation is a littl bit wonky). Highly underrated and a seinen take of the oft-used "save the world” scenario. I'm on my phone so can't elaborate much.

Hoshi no Samidare has my recommendations. Just be warned as there is a bit of ecchi in some of the scenes.

The final episode of Ano Natsu was absolute pure distilled perfection. Possibly the first time I haven't had ANY complaints about how a series ended.

 

I really don't mind teenage angst. Eva was my gateway into anime heh.

By the time I read hoshi no samidare (around last year IIRC) I am already at the point of "!@#$% pointless ecchi in manga/anime! I hate this world!!11!" and I do not find the ecchiness in hoshi even slightly annoying, or maybe the pure perfectness of it eclipsed any flaws it had. Overall though, I'd give hoshi no samidare my second highest personal award: "Best not-SZS: story and character category".

Of course, not saying they were bad. Just giving him the heads up to expect them. :)

Valid warning. EDIT: I'm curious. Do you watch anime using the HD800? How does it stand? Can you describe it without going full "OMGTHISISTHETITS!!!11!'?

Well, I was tempted to reply OMGTHISISTHETITS! :D

 

jkjk, OK, I can say right now that the HD800 is, as you all know, a very revealing headset. Any imperfection, let it be your equipment, the source quality to the recording studio's equipment, will be reflected. I think you might recall that the audio in anime you download are encoded very differently. Most TV anime you obtain are encoded in MP3 or AAC, some even down to 128kps. The reason for this is because the .ts RAW files themselves aren't 5.1 or good enough to be encoded as FLAC. You can check this information in the video file. Blu-Ray Rips are almost always encoded in FLAC. With the HD800, the difference is absolutely immense. I own the HD555 and with that, it's pretty much undistinguishable, but once you actually watch anime through the HD800, the difference is incredible. 

 

It's not necessarily a good thing to be able to tell this difference. For one, it makes enjoying TV anime as it's airing harder, because when your anime's audio in 192kps MP3, explosions are lifeless, the characters talking seem more two dimensional, and so fourth. When you watch a BDRip encoded in FLAC, all the imperfections vanish. Before I got my HD800, I could enjoy any anime through my HD555. After my HD800, well...I became more appreciative of BDRips which actually makes my life harder. xD

Well I noticed, at least the case for me in mouretsu pirates, that the normal speaking, vocals etc. are a bit lower loudness and clarity (?), detail (?) overall if compared to its now released full OP and ED. So I don't know if I ever want a more revealing headphones to follow airing anime. Maybe at some point I'll stop, but not now! My curiosity demands it's sacrifice! (through my money frown.gif).

 

 

post #3069 of 130204

To be honest, I personally can't accurately discern difference between 320kps MP3 and FLAC accurately for most cases, but TV anime never go up to even 256. That's why the difference is visible even as long as you have any decent headset (such as yourself). However, with the HD800, the difference is so huge it leaves an impression in your head.

 

Basically, the HD800 makes most of your anime sound worse, not better.

post #3070 of 130204

Oh something that's been nagging me since I read your blog post in class. Should I bother myself with F/N first or just jump into F/Z and won't bother myself with this:

And have you compared boku wa tomodachi anime vs manga? I find I loathe the anime but can tolerate the manga.

Just watch Fate/zero since:

 

1) Fate/stay night sucks as the anime, the VN is good

2) Fate/zero is the prequel to Fate/stay night anyway.

 

Also, Haganai was a light novel adaptation and thus the manga handles things differently. The light novel is quite good though. If you didn't like Haganai that's understandable, my runner up would have been Infinite Stratos or Mayo Chiki for the Ecchi Genre Award of 2011.

I'm back! Tadaima (I think that's how you spell it).

 

Fate/Stay Night (anime) did suck. I have yet to go try the VN. Fate/Zero however is on a whole new level.

 

Well, I'm just going to post the commercial one more time because I love it and "Tell Your World".

 

 

I'm going to be going soon. School...I can't wait for Papa this afternoon though.

 

Edit: Just checked it in my Introduction To Japanese book. It's Tadaima. ただいまsmile.gif

Yus! At least you know what to say. For those who don't know and are too lazy to go look up in translate (it doesn't do a very good job anyways), ImperialX said Okaeri[nasai] (nasai adds respect) which means Welcome back.

 

So you going to bed? If yes, then おやすみなさい!
