@mechy, be prepared for different genus of the fruit. I don't know if they label which ones they import, but some will be more... potent and stronger, while some others can be milder. When you do go to wherever they are selling durians in Seattle, can you do me a favour and ask if they are from Malaysia?

If it's not already labeled, will do. :)

I can't remember what is what. I know I've seen or read both Onegai Teacher and Onegai twins :/


 

Just finished Valvrave the Liberator.

 

My thoughts/suspicions on the series from episode 3+ came true. :/

 

The series seemed like it was written by an 8 year old. Half the events, and reactions from sub characters are insanely irrational and idiotic. The story progressezes in bouts of Deus Ex Machina to slight rationale event progression all the way back to 8 year old superhero events.

 

The sub characters that give the MC's conviction are EXTREMELY under-baked 

Examples being

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Shoko to Haruto
Liselotte to L Elf
Nobu to THUNDER
Akira's bro to Akira and so on

In the sense that they all have one dimensional roles that they never break free from. It's always person X acts as _____ to MC character 1/2/3/4/5 and so on. They don't get any real in depth progression and most of the conviction that one would feel from them is through forced tension events.

 

Overall, Valvrave was a very targeted series despite it being marketed as not. Valvrave is marketed as a series that everyone can enjoy. Where the anime geeks, kids, and newcommers can all think that this would be a good series to latch onto. The problem them is that its actual niche targeting is towards the younger 10-15 age bracket. Story progression events, over the top sudden action and drama, along with various other mid **** stuff that it does is evidence of this.

 

Valvrave was a worse series than Guilty Crown. However, while GC was more 'in the moment' cringe worthy than Valvrave,Valvrave gets a lower score due to just how bad the logic, and rationale the story is in terms of events that make sense.

 

5/10

 

Would not watch again, and not recommended. Even at the very end, the series was extremely lackluster in every single thing it did.

 

Valvrave officially gets my award for the worst AAA series (marketed - supposedly - towards the anime geek group (although it was also targeted at many others as well)) I have ever seen.

 

Most AAA series marketed towards us that are bad, still aren't nearly as bad as Valvrave is.

Bowei's wall of text translates to: Valvrave sucked.

 

At least that's what I read.

Yep, basically it. 

 

Valvrave is an AWESOME series for 12 year olds to watch. Over the top action, military alliances, multiple babes etc etc.

 

It's just pretty much absolutely putrid.

It's one big recap. The only good part was Asuna, Liz, Silica, and Sugu, in swimsuits. Both in reality and in ALO. The "new" content was silly, it made me go "Huh?". The last 5 seconds is a setup for GGO.


Oh really?
A recap disguised as an otaku fodder beach episode?
Great....

I thought they are going to do that big times with the second season but it looks like they are not missing out on any opportunity.

Here is the trailer to Marksman Rifle Art Online 2 btw :P
Soooo exciting -_-

You're going to need a serious knife to cut it open though. They're very thick-skinned. I think supermarkets like Viet-Wah sell spine-less ones that are frozen.
