Death Note isn't my favourite anime, but it's one of those shows that I think is very hard to improve upon.

I mean, if they aired the first 20 or so episodes again except changed it to that SPOILER doesn't die and continued from there, literally everyone would agree it would've been better so...

Ha, that might work. Or keep the ending of the first series of Death Note and END IT THERE. Not the most disappointing second series of any anime I've ever seen, but it really did fall off a cliff.

In other news, I'm thoroughly enjoying Kill La Kill. Felt a bit like it was struggling with ADHD to start with, but it's very funny. Cheers for all the feedback from everyone.

Blame! (Netflix Original)

Let me preface this by saying I have no previous experience with the series, however, from my limited research I understand this film is more of a side story. With that said, I'll be looking at the movie as a standalone entity.

It's biggest positive is that it's a real visual stunner. It's a dark world, but a pretty unique take on the machine apocalypse theme, and it's fully realized thanks to the extreme attention to detail. The effects from Killy's Gravity Disruption whatever gun were particularly a sight to behold, and the action in general was very well done. The only drawback to the visuals are that as a CGI anime, the human characters can appear stiff at times.

However, other than it's gorgeous art, there's not much else here. The basic plot isn't bad, but it doesn't really do anything new either. I couldn't care less about the characters (I felt like there were too many of them, and while I know they did this so they could kill off a fair number of them, the result is that the mains aren't very developed), especially Killy who has NO personality whatsoever.

You may find more to like in it if you know about the main series, and it's decent enough that it's probably worth a once over for fans of sci-fi anime, but I didn't think it was anything too special.

Because he's just another person behind a pc screen.

He can be easily demoted/promoted at will.

Besides, I can get away with whatever I want cause it's the interwebz right?

That seems to be the new ongoing trend nowadays.

Guys, we have an ignore button for a reason. With that said, don't be afraid to hit the report button before you do, if it's that serious.

so instead of sorting out the problem and dealing with the issue, there's always the option to ignore.

Hey, just like real life nowadays.

We might as well be digitized into the internet.

@Phazon it's called not letting the negativity get to you. At the moment all you are doing is spreading negativity so it would be best if people ignored you. Like you said it's the internet, which on the internet it's easy to click off of a page if you see something that displeases you. If it was a serious issue like someone getting harassed then that is when the matter should be addressed.

Actually, that's why I suggested using the report button, so the mods are made aware of your 3rd grade-level harassment in this thread. The ignore button then ensures that we don't have to read any further posts you make until the mods take care of the matter.

Speaking of which: I think I'll utilize my own advice this time.

@CanisWolfred I did that like 5 hours ago and that's why I posted twice now after I deleted my last comment. I keep on knocking but no one is listening. Must be Sunday problems.

@Spoony_Tech I'm a mortal being and I need sleep!

There's not a whole lot I can do, but I've contacted the other mods. I'm awaiting a response too.

Knights of Sidonia (Netflix Original)

A pretty great watch, though the fact that it's incomplete (at this point) is a bummer. It draws a lot of inspiration from 80's & 90's mecha (I noticed a lot of Evangelion influence, personally), but is very much it's own thing. The story/lore is intriguing, the action is usually fantastic (although the limitations of CGI pop up from time to time, most worryingly during the opening action scene in episode 1, but it's usually much smoother than that), and it's very pleasing aesthetically.

The biggest drawback is that, as mentioned before, it's currently incomplete, so there's a ton of loose ends. Personally, I also wasn't a big fan of the direction the romantic sub-plot was taking, but of course that'll come down to the individual.
