The manga is on ch 74 online... they are back to the school.... the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and look to end soon.... but the translator said it's going on another break.... oh well.

Spin off after spin off... so the story will never end... as planned... milk it to death and beyond.... I barely remember the story line... 2012 S2? JCDranzer said? Wow, has it been that long for the manga to put out enough chapters? or where he/she too busy doing all the spinoffs? I never watched that spinoff of the girls.... wasn't it just a redo of the same storyline from this one that they were in? Same spinoff idea with that other long dead storyline of Haruto... spun off with the last movie... another Naruto in the making they hope? If so, they have to put out more product, just get more writers on staff to crank it out.... that's how it's done... it's all about the money, right? ;)

 

Is S3 any good? I  remember liking this show... though SSCDanzer was right.... it started to drift.... and setting up that spinoff proved it... and now they're thinking of another? I don't even remember who 'Accelerator' was/is.... some dude eh? Wow.... 2012 was S2.... no wonder.

 

Is it any good? if so, I'll have to go back and check out the previous S1/S2... .to remember it well enough.... or not. :lol:

Haven't seen any S2 yet.... but the problem is usually falling back on the usual tropes... not giving the characters an 'edge' of difference compared to the other characters/tropes.... some sad background setup isn't enough if it doesn't carry thru... suddenly our MC is all nice and pretty without any affect on previous troubled times on their lives/faces etc... people going thru tough times get that 'look'... though not often in anime... they fall back on the usual tropes and character drawings.... all pretty and nice... no 'edge'... same thing happens with the story...

Ok... I looked up top.... there was a film back in' 07... didn't know that. Was it essentially S1? This MC looks like a young??? that 'cool' guy in that original anime on the Rakugo storytellers? his 'friend' that dies young.... the story setup was there early on.... this MC needs something like that to 'ground' him more.... he's too carefree, good looking, seems to be too talented... maybe that's what the marketplace in Japan wants?? of course, the audience will usually get bored after a while, but when marketing to the youth audience, there's always a new batch every year.... thus the repetitive nature of it all.... they don't remember the older stuff, even if it was better.

So, the story is improving but not the animations? It's always the story that counts... IMO.... a good story can make up for a lot of dull or cheap artwork, special efforts etc... an 'good' audience will forgive a lot, knowing the production budget is low, so expecting little... or so I think. Isn't most animation of the same quality control level? Only the really good or bad sticks out, right?

I do think they need to up the quality issue... Nodame is the example I keep comparing it to.... very well done that was... just enough music highlighted to bring the audience into the story... especially for those that aren't classical music fans... the charactes evolved, grew up etc.

Kono Yo no Hate de Koit wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO.... of course.. seen this plotline before... of course..... though the tv show 'Fringe' has probably done it better.
Carole and Tuesday.... a Mars style music group in the making... interesting they use Mars... I wonder if it will look/feel like Aria or not... probably not? I'm guessing the usual J/K-pop songs?

MIx anime is starting... one of the very few mangas I keep up on..... just because I liked Cross Game and Adachi's stuff.... I didn't think the manga was ready for finishing.... which is what they did with Cross Game.... but the online stuff is always behind, so who knows how many chapters aren't online yet.... seems they are only juniors though? So .... in the past, they ended the anime with the last chapter of the manga.... so a year? would give Adachi time to finish, but it's a monthly I think... not sure.... it's kind of weird to see the same characters again in anime, doing pretty much the same thing. ..but that's his thing... which is weird and kinda cool at the same time....

I notice all the little kid anime is on the bottom.

Dororo sounds interesting... maybe.
Shoumetsu Toshi.... another maybe... so many if the same plotline, and rarely are any of them any different... most are 'ok'.
Gunju no Magmel.... that's supposed to happen as well.... only in the Pacific... as that old area rises anew. They really should look into the esoteric field for better storylines, it would give it a good sense of realism as a basis for the story.
Hitoribocchi no Seikatsu... could be funny, 4koma style...
Mayonaka no Occult Koumin... now if instead of 'occult', they used the real world SG groups responsible for covering up the whole 'alien' issue of who controls the planet(and why), then it would be interesting.

Kono Oto Tomare!.. another one of those.... it could be interesting if they made it a fusion music thing like what you can see online... doing recent pop hits with a combination of the old and new instruments.
Hachigatsu no Cinderella Nine... hs girls baseball team.... has that been done before? Cross Game had a side story with their female MC but I don't watch sports stuff usually.. hmm.

Jimoto ga Japan... I wonder what this is... a comedy yes... but??
