No I don't hate shounen because it's "not mature" enough. I watch Sentai and Kamen Rider and I love magical girl shows. I started watching anime when I was 6 and I'm 25 now. I've hit the saturation point on a lot of action shows. If people weren't talking about AoT saving anime I wouldn't have noticed it at all. I also didn't like Kill La Kill again because I've reached my saturation point.
A lot of hotblooded shows bother me because I've seen them before. They need to do something really cool for me to get interested. Usually even just a healthy sense of humor about itself is enough. If I started watching anime 10 years later than I did I may have really loved AoT. It's not bad it's really just that I've seen it before. Same with SAO, Magical Index, and a lot of the shows that were popular in the last 6 or so years. If you guys keep going down the line you'll always remember your first animes with rose tinted glasses and dislike the new stuff for doing the same thing, which I know is stupid but it's just how it goes.

I get that. Like I said before, it's gotta do something different for me too, in order to stand out.

Yeah, but Attack on Titan actually has some semblance of good writing while SAO is just shit. Still, I guess we all have different opinions.

I loved the art style but what it comes down to for me is if anyone can die at any time I can't get emotionally invested. I'll cry when I watch kid shows though, so go figure.

Hence my earlier point about anime being hard to recommend.

As, for example, the fact that I liked SAO almost as much as AoT. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't spectacular either. It was, however, the best of it's niche genre that I've ever seen...so I suppose that counts for something to me.

I think, as with anything but perhaps moreso with anime, when you talk about anime, you almost have to break it up instead of discussing whole shows.

Yeah anime is literally just a shortening of animation in Japanese. It's not a genre it's a medium. It'd be the same if you said "I like TV but I don't enjoy the shows for teenagers. But I really enjoy the cop shows"

Evangelion Rebuild 2.0

Postby Vami IV » Tue Jul 08, 2014 8:57 am

I finally tracked down Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance on animetoon.tv.com. So far so good, but imagine if Shinji were not so much pussy, and instead a sarcastic closet perv like me or Overwatch.

Exactly what I like to hear. Unless it was EoE, which was straight shit. But I'll get there when I get there.
EMERGENCY EDIT, SPOILERS

I reached the part where Kaji was flinging the California bullshit at Shinji. Despite my worries (through the roof), listening to that scream (Shinji) was well worth it :D

Just watched Tekkon Kinkreet, and it was good (although I think it was lacking in story). I just have one question, is the character Rat also the older Yakuza in Mind Game? I also noticed that the time traveling superhero from Mind Game also appears for a moment on the TV in Tekkon Kinkreet.

Is anyone watching Zankyou no Terror (aka Terror in Resonance)? It's a more serious anime directed by Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Space Dandy). I just watched the first episode and I thought it was pretty well done.
