A one hour Mushishi special ♥

YES! I'm downloading all of that during the Animebytes freeleech. I should rewatch it during winter break.

New Kill la Kill episode is just like the new Kyoukai no Kanata episode. A build-up for something even more awesome :)

 

 

A lot of things
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It plays on personality type changes like reality is AND on the idea of 'who is a person'. 

Let me explain the first one first on personality type realism. 
Most anime give you a character with a set type of personality. That's the base. Then they add the features of sadness, happiness, anger etc. It's like 'create an anime character' game or something. Koko and Chinami are some examples where Golden Time expresses a difference within this. Kaga Koko is EXTREMELY annoying. Almost every time I see her, I'm thinking of jumping on board the HMS Linda. The way she overplays every interaction is one of the main things. On the surface, she is very fake. She is THAT girl that nobody likes. However, as we have seen in many episodes with her. That is one of her coping mechanisms. We don't truly know what it is yet, but Koko has an underlying problem that the comedic romantic comedy brings up every 4 minutes, but at the same time masking it. She wants a purpose in life, she wants to make herself feel good, she wants only the things that are planned, and that make others feel like she is good. A lot of evidence has been provided with this already. This type of realistic personality type that is masked(BUT shown constantly) with the romantic comedy is very innovative. It's not new, but Golden Time uses it as one of the biggest sub focuses that go unnoticed. We know its a big focus due to those tender scenes we witnessed a few episodes back with her reality breakup on Yana, her friendship and then relationship with Banri.

The other type of thing Golden Time uses is almost the type of nature vs nurture idea. The same feel but not the same logic. What I mean is that it plays on the idea of what makes a person and what love really is. There would be NO reason at all to have the ghost banri and the past (well crafted) flashbacks all of which are high quality if this wasn't the case. The anime is giving two f MC's to chose from yes. This is not new, but it now uses the idea of love, changing love, and personality as a way to bring up issues in the real world. Anime can't be 100% real. It makes up for its inability(time constraints, money to produce etc) to have fully realistic events through its usage of chracters and its executions. A real world idea thus would be on relationships and breakups. It's an awkward thought really. You love a person, and then you breakup and love another. Golden Time uses this idea of changing love, and the nurturing of a person's personality in its show. It's not 100% analogous to reality but enough. You may have a hard time following this one so to sum it all up. Golden Time tries to define love through a character's personality. The ghost banri, and the high quality production and backstory flashbacks, along with how much time it devots to character development of both sides equally(now) is proof enough. (Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is one of the only other series that uses an idea similar to this)

I would love it if people read this and let me know. Didn't watch Golden Time? Read it. Am watching it right now? If you are at episode 6 at least, then read it, it has no new spoilers past episode 6. 

 

It's not new, but its execution of it is quite innovative. And it's doing it quite well as well.

Man, it really sounds like they put a lot of effort into the characters.
That is totally essential for an anime of this genre if you ask me. I mean, you rarely ever get a real important storyline in an anime like this, so it defines itself through the characters.
At least thats how it should be IMO.
Some studios seem to think differently about that though :/

If I ever feel like watching a romantic anime, I will sure check Golden Time out!

Streaming anime isn't as bad as everyone says :(

I don't know why I should archive every anime I ever watched...I rarely rewatch things so why waste gig after gig?
There are plenty of HD streams out there that will spare you all this seeding ratio shenanigans :3

First these were super power hungry, clip zip didnt have enough oomph to drive them properly.  C5 and T3D did well though.  The vocals..... right up in your grill.  It's so dominating compared to everything else; clarity was good but hard to pay attention to anything besides vocals really.  So it did well for rap solo's and acapella was marvelous.  Listening to Pitch Perfect's soundtrack (yes, It's a pretty good recorded soundtrack...don't judge) was pretty amazing to say the least. I half expected the bass to be dominating but really it wasn't.  
32 Ω with a sensitivity rating of 95 dB/mW? That's a really inefficient earphone. My full-sized V-MODAs are more efficient at the same impedance rating. O.o

I didn't even check the specs but I'm not surprised. It sounded like junk if it didn't have an amp.

This is all analyzation of course. It's still very romantic comedy ish.

 

But like I explained, the romantic comedy itself is part of the theme and how it deals with more real world issues.

 

:D

Yep, it's fun. Although it seems this time the wait time is going to be much longer than expected.

This time I didn't leave it as clear resin; added some colours to it. I added TOO MUCH...

Also, my basement is probably 15~17C at best, so that's not really an idea condition.

When I went to touch the cast earlier it was sticky. That's about the 20H mark, while it's supposed to be fully cured to the core at the 24H mark. Guess I'll wait till tomorrow evening.

Sadly the type of resin I found has crystals that are a little too angular to serve as ear-insert-able stuff. I got some 2000 grit sand paper but that's going to take forever.

It's fine... I still have all the anime I ever watched on externals since college and then re-backed up on DVD's.  Call it nostalgia or the hoarder side of me.  

 

Anything that can be collected I think I've done.... plushies, figurines, box sets.  Some stuff I'll never let go.

Golden Time is best innovative romance.

 

White Album is best pure romance.

 

Duuude watch your hype lol.

Both are interesting/fun to watch, but "best" is a bit of a stretch. Even as far as current half-season.

And like some of the Japanese are saying, Golden Time would be better with another director. Some development are a bit too rushed.

Not that it stops anyone from it's enjoyment though.

 

At least wait for a bit more development.

Hype hype hype.

 

Don't worry, I'll be watching my hype

  

 

    HYPE HYPE 

 

 

 

I meant best for this season of course. Granted, they are pretty much winners by default already.
