Anime: Overlord

Well, messing around in Fallout 4. Even got past the installing mods part and now in the early part of the game where I’m struggling to get a settlement up and running. I’ve got two mods that make it really hard to get enough crops and clean water. Plus I don’t have any salvage beacon dispatchers so can’t loot everything not nailed down yet. Grr.

Enough about that, time for thoughts on anime I watched recently.

Good writing in Sword Art Online

Wait, wait, don’t leave yet! This isn’t about how I think the series as a whole is well written! It’s about how I think two specific examples in the series are worth considering and learning from in a non-negative way!

Anime: Kakegurui

Superbowl Sunday! Where I, in honor of my Colorado anime club, watch some anime. Since this was the day it was founded. Watched the first episode of Terror in Resonance on Hulu. Was not impressed. Might have some potential, but nothing in the first episode made me want to watch more. So I went over to another series I’ve been wanting to check out: Kakegurui.

First off, so glad I’m not watching this one with my mom. I enjoy watching movies and anime with her but sexual stuff is just uncomfortable. Altered Carbon has had a bit of that. Kakegurui has lots of girls getting worked up over events in the show. Mostly because they are all insane. It has been interesting though. I do enjoy the occasional gambling anime where the main character uses their incredible wit to outmaneuver the opponent in overly dramatic ways. This one doesn’t even have the assumption of protagonist luck, except in one case. Which I appreciate. The art style is… good most of the time, but I have stylistic objections to certain expressions and emotional faces. Just look bleck to me. Mostly in the more realistic shots.

Either way, I’d recommend checking it out. The first episode is a pretty good snapshot of the show up to episode 7. Plus the opening should be checked out just on it’s own for the surreal beauty of it.

Anime: Death Parade

I’ve been watching a bit more anime recently. Mostly as semi-background while I’m trying to write. I am a bit terrible at background shows/movies because I end up spending more time on the show than the primary activity. Anyway! I mostly just kinda watch either episodes of anime I know or random youtube stuff. Just so that it’s easier to ignore. Just recently I tried a random anime and got grabbed.

Pony Stories 413

So, watching an anime called World Trigger. It’s been fun. Also a bit wacky since I’m pretty sure the team making it doesn’t know what they are doing. Not in a quality fashion, like they don’t know how to animate or write. In a more thematic fashion, like none of them have ever done a whole show or something and are just trying to fake it until someone figures it out. The show has been changing genres and focus every six episodes or so. Started out as monsters from another dimension with our heroes having superpowers. Then we had a training and tournament show for a couple of episodes, then laser sword battles and conspiracies and infighting in the organization, then large scale alien invasion, now less superpowers and more urban warfare with guns against monsters. At the moment we are in whatever genre Dragonball Z defines. Built-up battles that last an episode, from the middle of one episode to the middle of the next. With soooo much talking and explaining between the battles. Like I said, it’s been wacky trying to follow along. It’s one I’d recommend checking out, but keep in mind that the tone of the first few episodes does not continue.
