Just basking in the misery of Attack on Titan because there's few real alternatives to the cookie cutter shit that every new season rolls out.

i swear i saw Love is War season 2 on hulu at some point

damn, ping pong is easily in my all top favorites, might be my favorite yuasa too. grew up swimming competitively, got injured, the whole arc, and so much of this captured those struggles and emotions in a way I’ve never seen anything else pull it off (different sport of course but the connections with talent, dedication, etc are all there). The way it weaves in doubts or ego via VO or the jagged split screens that creep in mid-match was perfect. I need to track down the manga.

The manga rules to roughly the same extent. I can put it in the thing if you don't mind reading it digitally?

We watched the first half of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid last night. Don't think I remember anyone other than DRAGONS talking about this show on here. I basically want to watch nothing but KyoAni slice of life shows at this point and I'm OK with it I guess.

i think the anime is substantially better even though it's pretty similar. yuasa is really good with form and the anime has a few very good additions, but the manga is pretty standard

burned through tatami galaxy in a few days... enjoyed it, but feel like i might need another pass through it — dialogue is so fast with the subs that it's kinda hard to keep tabs on much else. felt like the middle eps really dragged a lot, seemed kinda clear where it was going. probably should've not gone straight from ping pong to this. also feel like there's a lot specific to kyoto and japan that i feel like probably went over my head, and am kinda curious what some of those cultural references and context are.

yeah, I have a very distinct feeling from after watching Tatami Galaxy that made me shift from being anti-dub to pro-dub. if you have to spend a lot of your time looking at the bottom 1/3rd of the screen, especially for really beautiful animation and art like that one, it's just not worth it. most English VAs nowadays are wonderful as-is anyway

i think tatami galaxy is slightly better than ping pong but a lesser version of mind game (which is close to a perfect, fully realized movie). they're very similar, actually. experimental form w/ an inspiring theme where the main character takes control of his life so that the viewers can also take control of their lives. the form is similar in that in mind game the characters literally have free will which causes infinite possibilities to the story, whereas tatami galaxy shows the infinite possibilities sprung from a single instance in ones' life. there's synthesis with the medium in that animation enables more abstraction and hyper vignettes. the plot is also sort of structured similarly.

lol, when i first got into anime i basically said the same thing
this show obviously rules, i think part of the emotional appeal is lost on western audiences though. it's for a neet otaku generation.

i also agree that the doll arc dragged a little
