I think the implication is that she is no longer here, but isn't dead. As we saw in S1, if they wanted a chracter dead, they would have killed them. The ending scene of her being in a peaceful sleep seems to imply that she is in a coma or something but will probably come back later in the series.

The Deus Ex Machina, lack of actual Seinen level compelling character and story events makes it uber shounen to me. I have mentioned this many times but it requires a huge level of brain-deadness to watch this series. Most anime try to make it so that the strings the story and producers pull aren't so raw and fake. With Valvrave, from S1 to even now, everything has been so fake, and done just to advance X Y or Z.

The first guitar verse of the OP catches attention and then the smooth vocals from T.M REvolution and who knows who else makes it pretty good

 

I like Golden Times ED transition a lot.

Probably 8.5/10? For a book adaptation, they did a pretty darned good job. But it's still a book adaptation and so they had to rush through a lot of the minor details, and didn't do a very good job explaining a few elements in the story that ended up confusing Michelle.

OOOO, so you were the one that has read it. Ok.

 

Anyway, Gravity is still a bit more appealing. The way the MC looks(ASA) is very off putting.

 

@ Eve

I like 'real 'versions better lol

post #94104 of 149575

Yeah I would give Ender's Game an 8/10 score.

-1 for having a somewhat rushed ending

-1 for not fleshing out some details (although that's pretty much inevitable in a movie based on a novel)

 

Some of the spinning camera angles were disorienting and headache inducing to me, but that might just be me. Ha, disorientation in space.

Yeah, I was thinking 8 as well.

 

The camera was disorienting for me as well.

post #94109 of 149575

I was at a headphone meet in Coronado (southern California) and got to talk to Dan of MrSpeakers and listen to the Alpha dogs for quite a while. Before this, I owned Mad Dogs with Alpha pads 3.2 for a week and returned them because I didn't like the lack of fullness/attack on the highs with the two amps I own (nfb 11.32 and fiio e12). I listened to the Alpha dogs through my fiio e12, and although they improves on the air and highs a lot from the Mad Dogs, I didn't like them too much... until I ran them through an iBasso PB2 pelican (about 2.5 wats). With this amp they were much, much better imo and I imagine on my desktop amp they would have sounded better too, when com[pared to an e12 (11.32 drives HE-500 just fine). Overall they were probably my favorite closed can at the meet and and that I have ever listened too, if properly amped (I heard th600 and th900, too u/v shaped for me, and Paradox modded fostex). I also thoroughly enjoyed the paradox and they had a more full and intimate sound, while still being airy if need be. The reason I might like the Alpha dogs a little more is that I just believe they are very sexy, but I can't say for sure because I only listened for about 20 mins each.

E12 is on the bottom of my list of sound quality for the Alpha Dog. It's easily bested by the less powerful C5, probably even less powerful P-P, and the slightly less powerful (at 32 Ω) Objective 2. Having more power output from an amp still doesn't ring any bells for me in terms of correlation with sound quality.
