Damn... the number of projects I do are inversely proportional to the time left until my midterms..... (i.e. tomorrow)

 

So I made another one today.... Project-Overdrive: Phantom-powered Guitar preamp + DI

Named after the song by IOSYS for no special reason.

Provides low, mid, high tonal controls and a soft-clipper for distortion effects.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I honestly think you should put some of your projects on the back burner and focus on the one you want completed first, boris. But as usual don't need to listen to the pessimist though.

I can sort of see it...

"But he's a guy" - Steins;Gate

 

That's exactly what I thought of when you said that.

My inital plan for today was watching all the Evangelion movies.
Instead I watched 7 episodes of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu.
(And 3 of Mushishi...)

Say whatever you want, but this anime cought me off guard.
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I really thought that these kids were just total nutjobs/weirdos until....well until it is revealed that they are totally not.

Quiet enjoyable so far :)

That's a bad argument, since I hate ecchi shows with a burning passion. It's the cancer that is killing anime in my eyes.
If you think monogatari series does not have a lot of moe and fanserivce then you probably have gotten used to the cancerous state of a large part of currently airing anime. Booh mechy, booh.

You are now officially among the ranks of people who see moe as a good thing, meaning you are among the people who (in my eyes) invite mediocrity into an otherwise good medium.

Heh, I agree with you up to a certain point about ecchi shows. I don't think bakemonogatari has that much fanservice, especially compared to nisemono. Even when it was in there, it felt like it was done more tastefully than in your average series.

Also, maybe my definition of moe is wrong, but I always see moe characters as being useless jigglebags why only have half a brain. It feels like all the characters in monogatari at least have most of their brain around.

 

Generally I try and avoid moe/ecchi shows nowadays, but I do watch them once in a while. In moderation, I don't think they're that bad. Not to say I like kyoukai no kanata, but it's moe and I'm watching it. And I'm watching IS2 this season too. Instead of getting mad at it for having a terrible lack of plot, I just laugh at how horribly bad it was done.

Does anyone ever do that? Watch something because they know it's bad, and then laugh at it?

Yep, it sucked...

Well, there's that too, but I'm actually talking about another element of both plots that I don't want to spoil...

It's not necessarily the fact that they are lolis but more how they look.
All the other characters seem to look fine though :/


Oh they started shipping the Alpha Dogs?
https://www.mrspeakers.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=69
I would love to try one someday....

Yeah, the exaggerated faces makes them look overly "cute" if you will (not my definition of cute, but I guess it was cute to the animators).

Eeyup, they've been shipping for a few weeks now...

This is one of shows that aren't in intersection thingy in our Venn diagram. I don't think bake has a lot of ecchi, and I'll admit that nise has lots of it. I want to say that its ecchi fanservice is different overall, but other than the ultraawesome toothbrushing hard on action, that's it. I'll say this though for the Monogatari series: I like this kind of harem, not the usual harem. There are fan service and moe, but I don't think it's as blatant as spunk gargle wee*1.

I mean, the (arguably) best show this season, KILL LA KILL, is very blatantly ecchi, what with the hyper exhibitionist sentai suits the main characters wear. But people that thinks too much more than me while watching KILL LA KILL said that Trigger has some message for it and smth smth about be proud of yourself or some such. Maybe Trigger used ecchi fan service with another primary goal, and the fap fuel of the design is a secondary goal. Contrasting that to Idol Wrestling PoS, which its primary, secondary and tertiary goals are without a doubt as fap fuel first (but what I got from the blogosphere is that those that love wrestling as what it is truly, not the fantasy of what wrestling portrays, say that Idol Wrestling PoS is even bad at the wrestling thing). Ecchi fan service is just a mere tool, and I think with enough work, I can overlook the ecchi fan service for the main thing that a studio want to present. That being the Monogatari series and KILL LA KILL, for example, and the counter example for one is Gargantia.

*1: I hope Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation isn't mad at me for adapting his label for CoD and Cod clones for trashy haremoecchi anime.

Lol, kill la kill does have a lot of fanservice, but I still find it entertaining.

They entire right driver is silent, so it's probably a bad connection somewhere. But finding out where is pretty difficult, and the fact that there is an amplifier in the circuit makes it even more difficult.

Gonna try some more and then just give up.


Yeah. They complicated the hell outta it

Mushishi is great!

The whole concept of the mushi is really interesting.
Artstyle is like a slightly lower budget version of your usual Gibli movie.
The characters are really fascinating. This is a strictly episodic anime so you won't get to see 99% of the people again, but quiet a few of these characters are a lot more memorable than some supporting characters of 26+ episode animes.
It's a really quiet anime, set in a really interesting world with a perfectly fitting artstyle and loads of memorable characters. Oh and it is usually more sad than cheerful.

My Amazon MP3s are all like V6 or something like that, whatever 142 kbps is.

@ boris
Bahahaha Overdrive. I remember watching that back in 2006 or around then.

I agree.

 

Ecchi + Moe does not equal a bad series.

No.

It's just some artistic thing. Can't say I like it though.

It's interesting how you're defending the integrity of anime as a medium, as it implies that you view anime as an art form. I don't totally disagree with you, but lets be realistic, anime, like all other forms of entertainment, is a product.

 

You remind me of the music 'fans' that listen to mostly classical rock, and how they schiit on fans of other music genres, such as modern pop/rap, and going on to say that pop/rap isn't real music or other such nonsense. It's interesting seeing the similarities between 'music fans' and 'anime fans (watchers?)', and that's strange, because you don't really see this type of behaviour from fans of other entertainment media, like film for example.

 

When's the last time you heard someone say "GRR, COMEDY MOVIE FANS ARE CORRUPTING THE FILM INDUSTRY". And yet, we both see it all the time when people are talking about how moe is destroying anime.

 

Even here on head-fi, many people have this strange emotional attachment to gear, and when other people speak ill of that persons' favourite headphone/amp, they take it as if it was a personal attack, it's crazy!

 

And yeah, I know I'm kind of generalising a little, but you get my point.

 

Arrghhh, I need a drink. (even in scotch, people are like "lol you drink Johnnie Walker/blended scotch?, you're such a pleb with cheap taste")

 

G44

 

THE GENERAL ACCEPTANCE OF TOXIC BEHAVIOUR IN HOBBIES HAS LEFT ME IN DESPAIR!
